Scream 3 (2000) Poster


Patrick Dempsey: Mark Kincaid



  • Dewey : The killer called her.

    Mark : When?

    Gale : What'd he say?

    Sidney : Oh you know the usual small talk. "What's new?" "How you been?" "How do you wanna die?"

  • Sidney : Hey Detective, what's your favorite scary movie?

    Mark : My life.

    Sidney : Mine too.

  • Sidney : What do you know about trilogies?

    Mark : You mean like movie trilogies?

    Sidney : You seem to like movies, Detective.

    Mark : Call me "Mark", will you? 'Cause I'm gonna keep calling you Sidney.

    Sidney : I'll call you "Mark" when you catch the killer, Detective.

    Mark : Well, all I know about trilogies is that in the third one, all bets are off.

    Sidney : Did you request this case?

    Mark : No. They tend to put me on the ones that deal with the business. I grew up here and I know my way around the studios.

    Sidney : Must be exciting. Beautiful place, beautiful people.

    Mark : To me, Hollywood is about death.

    Sidney : Excuse me?

    Mark : I'm a homicide cop. When you see what I see day in and day out, the violence that people do to each other, you get haunted. I think you know about that.

    Sidney : What do you mean?

    Mark : I know what it's like to see ghosts that don't go away, to be watching a scary movie in your head, whether you want to or not, watching it alone.

    Sidney : Ghosts are tough. You can't shoot ghosts.

    Mark : Can't arrest ghosts. But the trick to keep from getting haunted is to be with people. You're here, you're not in hiding. You've done the right thing... Miss Prescott.

    [Short silence] 

    Mark : What did you know about your Mother?

    Sidney : I always thought I had the perfect Mom, the perfect family until I found out I was wrong. She had a secret life and I tried to understand that. And... soon as I thought... then I had more secrets. I don't know who my Mom was.

    Mark : You knew who she was to you.

    [They stare at each other, quietly, for a few seconds, then he gets up, putting on his jacket, getting ready to leave] 

    Mark : Here's the deal: I'm off to search the set. I think that what you saw is real. That's the good news.

    Sidney : How's that good news?

    Mark : Because it means that we are dealing with a flesh and blood killer, and I know how to handle guys like that.

    Sidney : Oh, yeah. How?

    Mark : Catch him or kill him.

    [He begins walking out of his office] 

    Sidney : Hey, Detective?

    [Turning around to face him] 

    Sidney : What's your favorite scary movie?

    Mark : [Walking back over to her]  My life.

    [He walks away] 

    Sidney : [to herself, after Kincaid leaves]  Mine, too.

  • Sidney : What do you know about trilogies?

    Mark : All I know is that in the third one, all bets are off.

  • Sidney : I don't know who my mother was.

    Mark : But you know who she was to you.

  • Dewey : Is that a threat, Detective?

    Mark : When it's a threat... you'll know it.

    Dewey : Was that a threat?

  • Mark : I'm gonna talk to the studio guys about those photos.

    Detective Wallace : Yeah right, I know where you're going.

    Mark : Yeah keep an eye on Sidney.

    Detective Wallace : I know where you're going, you're gonna get her some flowers and candy, right? Huh?

    Mark : Gimme a break!
