25 Beetlejuice Quotes For the Strange and Unusual

Tim Burton is known for spitting our cult classics and Beetlejuice is no different than Burton’s other kooky and spooky hits.

These Beetlejuice quotes are frighteningly weird, outlandishly silly, and totally out of this mortal world, just like the classic film.

With its eerie setting and memorable Beetlejuice quotes, the film is a must-watch for anyone looking for a spooky and entertaining movie night.

Beetlejuice follows the death of Adam and Barbara Maitland (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis).

After dying in a car accident, the couple’s spirits come back to their solitary farmhouse, happy to live out the rest of eternity alone when an unwelcome new (and very much alive) family moves in.

Desperate to get rid of the intruders, the Maitlands call upon a malicious spirit named Betelgeuse (Michael Keeton), who brings them entirely new and hilarious problems to face.

You don’t want to say his name three times, but you can repeat these Beetlejuice quotes as many times as you want.

Without further ado… 

It’s showtime!
