Army of Darkness is the third film of the Evil Dead series directed by Sam Raimi. It is a zany action comedy epic filled with magic and swashbuckling. Ash (Bruce Campbell) is a discount department store clerk who is mysteriously whisked off into medieval times. Thought to be a spy, he is taken prisoner. Ash is in fact a long sought after prophecy-fulfilling hero, who must recover an ancient tome and win the love of a beautiful woman, Shiela (Embeth Davidtz). This Book of the Dead, the Necronomicon, is inked in blood and made of human flesh. His quest to recover the book will dispel evil from the land and return him to his own time. However, the book is incredibly difficult to use and he accidentally unleashes a legion of skeletons and undead monsters. Armed only with his shotgun, a chainsaw and his 1973 Oldsmobile, will he be able to defeat the undead to save his girlfriend, the people and return to the 20th Century?moreless

Cowardly Warrior/Villager/S-Mart Clerk
Ash: All right you primitive screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my boomstick! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety-five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?
Ash: Sure, I could have stayed in the past. I could have even been king. But in my own way, I am king. (kisses a girl) Hail to the king, baby.
Ash: Gimme some sugar, baby.
Ash: Well, hello, Mister Fancypants. Well, I've got news for you pal, you ain't leadin' but two things, right now: Jack and shit... and Jack left town.
Ash: Yo, she-bitch! Let's go!
Old Woman: I'll swallow your soul!
Ash: Come get some.
Ash: Hail to the king, baby.
Arthur: Are all men from the future loud-mouthed braggarts?
Ash: Nope. Just me baby... Just me.
Sheila: But what of all those sweet words you spoke in private?
Ash: Oh that's just what we call pillow talk, baby, that's all.
Ash: First you wanna kill me, now you wanna kiss me. Blow.
Ash: Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun.
Wiseman: When you removed the book from the cradle, did you speak the words?
Ash: Yeah, basically.
Wiseman: Did you speak the exact words?
Ash: Look, maybe I didn't say every single little tiny syllable, no. But basically I said them, yeah.
Sheila: I may be bad, but I feel... good.
Ash: Don't touch that please, your primitive intellect wouldn't understand alloys and compositions and things with... molecular structures.
Ash: What? Were you raised in a barn? Shut the door! Probably was raised in a barn, along with the other primitives.
Ash: Keep your damn filthy bones outta my mouth.
Ash: That's it, go ahead and run. Run home and cry to mama!
Ash: So what's the deal? Can you send me back or not?
Wiseman: Only the Necronomicon has the power. An unholy book which we also require. Within its pages are passages that can send you back to your time. Only you the promised one can quest for it.
Ash: I don't want your book, I don't want your bullshit. Just send me back to my own time, pronto, today. Chop chop!
