Awesome: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

  • Nancy MacGyvering various traps for Freddy and having him falling on every one of them.
  • "I take back every bit of energy I gave you. You're nothing! You're shit." Best ending ever! Or, at least it was until Executive Meddling completely ruined it two minutes later.
  • "I'm into survival." Perfectly sums up Nancy's character. It's no wonder that despite appearing only one other time canonically (not counting the metafictional New Nightmare, which is partially a tribute to her actress Heather Langenkamp), people tend to consider her the protagonist of the entire series.
