"It can't be you. It can't be! IT CAN'T BE!"

- Mel's last words before Angela shot him through the neck with an arrow at the archery, killing him after he discovered she's a killer and realized Ricky was telling him the truth, regretting for beating him half to death

"Enough! I saw the whole business. You realize how dangerous those things are? You could've taken her eye out. Now, Ronnie's gonna hear about this, and there are gonna be canteen for a whole week. (to Ricky) And that goes for you, too, on the account of your filthy mouth. (Ricky: "What?!") If I EVER hear anything like this again, I'm gonna throw the whole bunch of you outta here, and DON'T THINK I DON'T MEAN IT! (calmly) Get ready for dinner.

- Mel scolding Billy, Mike, Jimmy and three other boys for throwing water balloons at Angela and fighting with Ricky. Even grounding them, especially Ricky (for using swear words) from canteen for a whole week

"I'm finished! That's all that there's to it. Finished! Wiped out!"

- Mel after he found out that Billy died

"I've got you now, you little monster! Now it's my turn! (Ricky: "Get the fuck off of me! Leave me alone!") Like you killed Kenny and Billy, just like you left Meg?!" (slaps Ricky to the ground) (Ricky: "I don't know what the fuck you're talking about! I didn't do nothing! Stop it! I didn't do anything, you crazy fuck! Stop it! I didn't do anything!") Liar, liar, liar!"

- Mel dragging Ricky into the woods, thinking he's a killer (which he didn't do anything when it was Angela) before he beated him half to death
