Bud Abbott: I don’t get it. Out of all the guys around here that dame has to pick a guy like you.
Lou Costello : What’s wrong with that?
Bud Abbott : Why don’t you go take a look at yourself in the mirror.
Lou Costello : Why should I hurt my own feelings?
Lou Costello : Well that’s gonna cost you overtime because I’m a union man and I work only sixteen hours a day.
McDougal : A union man only works eight hours a day.
Lou Costello : I belong to two unions.
Bud Abbott : It’s only a dummy

[After reading about the legend of Dracula, at MacDougall’s house of horrors]
Bud Abbott: That’s the bunk!
Lou Costello: [pointing to Dracula’s coffin] That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you! That’s his bunk!
[Dracula is leading Frankenstein’s monster out of MacDougall’s house of horrors, when the monster is startled by the sight of a hypnotized Costello]
Dracula (Bela Lugosi): [to the monster] Don’t worry! He can’t hurt you.
Lou Costello : Mr. Talbot, and I thought you were such a nice man. Look at you, you’re a mess.
Larry Talbot : Last night I went through another one of my horrible experiences. Many years ago I was bitten by a werewolf. Now, whenever the full moon rises I turn into a wolf myself.
Lou Costello : That’s alright; I’m a bit of a wolf myself!
Larry Talbot : You don’t understand. Every night when the moon is full, I turn into a wolf.
Lou Costello : You and twenty million other guys!
Lawrence Talbot : Soon the moon will rise. I’ve taken the room across the hall lock me in please.
Lou Costello : Lock you in?
Lou Costello : Yes, please. Hurry.

Bud Abbott : Hey McDougal! You still want your exhibits?

Lou Costello : Here comes one of ‘em now!

Bud Abbott : We’ll say her name is Mary.

Lou Costello : Naturally, she’d have to be.

Lou Costello : Chick, you’re what I call a real pal’¦ you take Mary.
Dr. Lejos/Dracula (Bela Lugosi) : Young people making the most of life – while it lasts.
Larry Talbot : So! We meet again, Count Dracula.
Dracula : Dracula?
Lou Costello : Yes. That’s who he says you are.
Dracula : Oh. My costume perhaps?
Bud Abbott : No. Talbot here thinks you’re the real thing!
Lou Costello : Uh-huh. Right out of McDougal’s House of Horrors.
Lou Costello : What an odd hallucination. But, the human mind is often inflamed with strange complexes. I suggest you consult your physician, Mr. Talbot.
