- John: I got an alternative, yeah, yeah, I got an alternative. Let's get in that old whirly-bird, find us an island some place, get juiced up and spend what time we got left soakin' up some sunshine! How's that? Sarah: You could do that, couldn't you? With all thats going on, you could just do that without a second thought? John: Right, I could do that even if all this *wasn't* going on!
Sarah: Maybe if we tried working together we could ease some of the tensions. We're all pulling in different directions. John: That's the trouble with the world, Sarah darlin'. People got different ideas concernin' what they want out of life.
[Bub has saluted Captain Rhodes] Dr. Logan: Apparently he was in the military! Return the salute! See what he does! Captain Rhodes: You want me to salute that pile of walking pus? Salute my ass! Dr. Logan: Your ignorance is exceeded only by your charm, Captain. How can we expect them to behave if we act barbarically ourselves?
[first lines] McDermott: Nothing, nothing at all. Sarah: Send again. McDermott: I've been sending up and down the coast from Sarasota to the Everglades and still getting back the same dead air. There's nothing! There's nobody or at least nobody with a radio. Sarah: All right then let's set down, we'll use the bullhorn. McDermott: Set down? Wait a minute, that's not in our contract! Sarah: It's the biggest city within 150 miles and we're going to give it every chance. McDermott: Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Sarah: Set down, John! John: I'll set us down. But I won't leave my seat and I'll keep the engine running. Now the first sign of trouble, I'm going up. If you ain't on board when that happens, you're likely to have a lousy afternoon.
Dr. Logan: They are us.
- The book Dr. Logan gives to Bub is Stephen King's "Salem's Lot."
George A. Romero had originally planned for all the zombies to perish in a massive explosion when they stumbled across explosive chemicals in the laboratory. Meanwhile, one of the crew members who had died during the attack was to have stayed dead and not come back as a zombie, thereby giving hope to the survivors.
The original script, for which George A. Romero couldn't get budget for, involved the scientists living over-ground in a fortress protected by electrified fences and the military living safely underground. It also involved a small army of trained zombies, and the conclusion to the trilogy more brutal than the current version.This later became the basis of Land of the Dead (2005)
All the extras who portrayed zombies in the climax received for their services: a cap that said "I Played A Zombie In 'Day of the Dead'", a copy of the newspaper from the beginning of the film (the one that says THE DEAD WALK!), and one dollar.
Most of the zombie extras in this film were Pittsburgh residents who volunteered to help in the film.
