- Taryn: In my dreams I'm beautiful. [flicks open two switchblades] Taryn: And bad!
Freddy Krueger: Will, you look tired. Have a seat. Will Stanton: No thanks. I'm fine just the way I am. Freddy Krueger: For now, maybe... but when you wake up... It's back... in the saddle... again.
Nancy Thompson: It's now or never. I'm not gonna kid you, this is as dangerous as it gets. If you die in this dream it's for real. Nobody has to go in that doesn't want to.
Freddy Krueger: Die.
Kristen Parker: Five, six, grab a crucifix. Seven, eight, better stay up late. Nine, ten, never... never... Nancy Thompson: Never sleep again. Where did you learn that rhyme?
- When the clay puppet face turns into Freddy's, special-effects man Doug Beswick used stop-motion animation. Filming began with a clay Freddy face that was made plainer in each frame. The result was then run backwards, and that is what appears in the final cut of the film.
For the scene where Freddy kills Jennifer, his line in the script was "This is it Jennifer, your big break on TV!" Robert Englund said this line for the first two takes, but on the third take changed it to "Welcome to Prime Time, bitch!" Director Chuck Russell couldn't decide which version to use, so he edited the two together.
The scene in which Neil Gordon (Craig Wasson) is thrown into the grave and partially buried by the skeleton of Freddy is a tribute to Body Double (1984), in which Wasson's character is similarly buried alive.
The movie that on TV that Jennifer watches before she dies is Critters (1986), and the very short clip just before she switches to the Dick Cavett show, featuring actor Donald Pleasence is a scene from Alone in the Dark (1982), which was directed by Jack Sholder, who also directed A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985).
Sally Kellerman was originally in the script, as the guest on the Dick Cavett show scene in which Jennifer dies.
