The 2003 movie
- Jim and Megan fighting off the zombies, also has some funny moments.
- Jim and the kids storming the sham wedding service.
Ramsley: If anyone has any objections...Jim: (bursts in) Yeah, I got a few objections!
- Madame Leota's Rousing Speech to Jim after he falls into despair trying and failing to get back into the mansion to save his family.
Jim: Hey, you leave me alone. Just get out of here and leave me alone.Madame Leota: Oh, I see. You're just going to sit there, feeling sorry for yourself.Jim: Tell me why not. This whole thing was my fault. We should've never been here in the first place. Supposed to be at the lake. We'd be sitting by a warm fire right now. And I made us come here. And now it's too late.Madame Leota: No. It's never too late.Jim: Hey, look, I tried to get in there, and I can't, all right? I tried! I failed!Madame Leota: You try. You fail. You try. You fail. But the only true failure is when you stop trying.Jim: What do you want me to do? Huh?Madame Leota:...Try again. (cut to Jim, behind the wheel of his car, preparing to plough through the mansion wall)
- Mystic Manor itself. While extremely different from all other Mansions it has amazing special effects and really conveys a magical atmosphere. Bonus: Danny Elfman did the music for the ride!
- THE HATBOX GHOST IS BACK! He has animation, a more unique face, and digital effects show his head disappearing and traveling into his hatbox. He can be seen at about 4:49 here.
