"ParaNorman" movie quotes take viewers on a fantastical journey into the paranormal in this 3D stop-action thriller from Laika, the Academy Award-nominated company that created "Coraline." Voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tucker Albrizzi, Anna Kendrick, Casey Affleck, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin and John Goodman, "ParaNorman" brings it's ghosts, witches and zombies to theaters on August 17, 2012.

In the small town of Blithe Hollow, ghosts are around everywhere but only one boy, Norman (Smit-McPhee), can see them. For Norman, talking to ghosts is a normal, everyday kind of thing. He even acts as a medium to connect town residents with their late loved ones, pets even, as awkward as that sometimes can be.

This special ability makes him an outcast at home and at school but also makes him the only one who can save the town from the witch's curse. Held by the town's crazy guy, Mr. Prenderghast (Goodman), the witch's curse is poised to raise the undead and wreak havoc on the town. Along with his trusted buddy Neil (Albrizzi), sister Courtney (Kendrick) and Neil's brother Mitch (Affleck), Norman sets off on an adventure to save the town from the undead.

Though likely enjoyable for all ages, "ParaNorman" comes with a PG rating geared toward children. For something a bit more mature, there's plenty of other summer blockbusters in theaters such as "The Campaign," "The Babymakers," "Ted," "Celeste and Jesse Forever," "Madea's Witness Protection," "Magic Mike," "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Dark Knight Rises."

    Bub

    Ranker Video v


    Neil: "So is it true?"
    Norman: "What?"
    Neil: "Do you see ghosts like everywhere, all the time?"
    Norman: "Uh, yeah"
    Neil: "Awesome! Do you think you can see my dog, Bub? He was ran over by an animal rescue van. Tragic and ironic. We buried him in the yard. Could you see him?"
    Norman: "Maybe"
    Neil: "Sweet! Come on!"
    Mitch: "Neil, is that you?"
    Neil: "Hey Mitch, we're gonna go play with the dead dog in the garden and we're not even gonna have to dig him up first!"
    Mitch: "What? What'd you say? Neil, isn't he that weird kid, you know 'look at me, talking to ghosts so people will pay attention to me.'"
    Neil: "Can you stop doing that? It's kind of stupid."
    Mitch: "Now listen to me. You don't need to be hanging out with weird people, OK? That's a tip."
    Neil: "Don't blow this for me, Mitch. This one's not weird. He talks to dead people... He's around here somewhere. So, does everyone come back as a ghost?"
    Norman: "No, my grandma told me it's usually people who still have stuff to figure out or sometimes it's ones who died suddenly or in a bad way. Bub?"
    Neil: "Is he there? How's he look?"
    Norman: "Uh, good. He's happy to see you."
    Neil: (to a ghost dog) "Who's a good boy, huh? Oh good boy! Can he feel if I pet him?"
    Norman: "Yeah, I guess"
    Neil: (kisses the dog) "Bubby wubby boo"
    Norman: "Uh, that is not his chin."

    At the request of buddy Neil, Norman makes contact with Neil's dog who died tragically. Unbeknownst to Neil however, Norman failed to warn Neil that the area he was kissing was his rear.

    Flavors of People

    Ranker Video v


    Neil: "Hey Norman, I don't get why zombies can only eat people. Is it some kind of allergy or something?"
    Norman: "I think it's more of an allegory, Neil."
    Neil: "That's what I said. Like, I'm allegoric to a bunch of stuff. But if all I could eat was people, that would get really annoying!"
    Norman: "It's a big world, Neil. I bet there's lots of flavors of people."
    Neil: "Huh? I wonder what flavor of people I am."

    Oh Neil, your deeps thoughts are entertaining, if nothing else, especially when they ponder the important things in life, such as how boring it would be to only eat people, like zombies.

    Perry: "Can't you be like other kids your age?"
    Norman: "I thought you said kids my age were too busy shoplifting and joyriding."

    Let's Do It Together

    Ranker Video v

    Neil: "So do I!" Let's do it together!"

    The Witch's Curse

    Ranker Video v


    Norman: "Couldn't you use another stall?"
    Mr. Prenderghast: "The witch's curse is real and you're the one who has to stop it. You've gotta use your gift of talking to the dead to stop it! You'll need a little help and a lot of courage. I've been holding back the witch's curse for years, but now I'm dead. It has to be you."
    Norman: "But, I don't know what it means."
    Mr. Prenderghast: "It means the past is coming back to haunt you. Time is running out! The anniversary of the witch's death is tonight. The ghost is going to wake up tonight and when she does she'll raise the dead. Gotta keep her in her grave!"
    Norman: "But, I'm just a kid. How am I supposed to stop it?"
    Mr. Prenderghast: "Read from the book at the spot the witch was buried."
    Norman: "This is crazy!"
    Mr. Prenderghast: "Do I look crazy to you?"
    Norman: "Uhhhhh"

    We all run into the town's crazy guy once in a while but unlike Norman, usually those meetings don't occur in the restroom. This meeting however had a special reason, so Mr. Prenderghast could inform Norman that he has a very important task to complete to save the town from the witch's curse.
