The safest person, sometimes, is a stranger on the Internet who lives in a different place. If they’re a daily source of support and advice, no one really wants to lose that once they have it. If they know deep down that the person they’re talking to isn’t exactly who they say they are, it’s not worth finding out.
Max Joseph

Sarah McLachlan

Ross Duffer
The thing that influenced me most in relation to ‘Nanny McPhee’ were the Westerns I watched with my father. All the Spaghetti Westerns; all the Virginians; all the High Chaparrals. Because if you think about the form, it’s a stranger from out of town.

I remember once seeing a guy in the grocery store who looked so much like my character the Archangel Gabriel, I wanted to go up to him and say, ‘Hey, put that Red Bull down. You’ve already got wings.’ My friend had to sternly remind me that he was a stranger and I did not, in fact, create him.
Alexandra Adornetto
It’s really hard for me to be open and be completely honest with a stranger.

Joseph Brodsky
In an interesting inversion of status, the reigning breed in the dog park these days is the really-oddball-unidentifiable-mixed-breed-mutt-found-wandering-the-street or its equivalent. The stranger the mutt the better; the more peculiar the circumstance of it coming into your life, the better.
Susan Orlean
It’s intriguing to me, when I see a horror script, or something like that, that’s actually original. I think that’s why I love ‘Stranger Things,’ because it’s not just horror, it’s everything, and when they use horror it’s right.
Finn Wolfhard
The people who can step up my experience are those who have a common set of experiences with people I know. Think about it. How often did a total stranger come into your life to make your evening better? Not very often. But the friend of your friend? That happens all the time.

Truth may be stranger than fiction on a plot and narrative basis, but fiction can investigate tone in a way that things based on a true story can’t.
Ray McKinnon
A lot of ‘Stranger Things’ is having to be able to, in your mind, turn a little tennis ball into a huge monster. In Season 2, there was one scene where I was screaming at the monster and I was screaming at nothing. It was just the sky. So I really have a big imagination, I guess?

Karel Capek

I’m no stranger to making timeless music.
The difference between a stranger sending you a message that you might be interested in at a very low volume level, no repetition, just sending it to very few people, and that being done as spam – those things get close enough that you want to be careful never to filter out something that’s legitimate.

‘Carnival Row’ is us looking at the stranger; ‘The Curiosity’ is the stranger looking at us.
Travis Beacham
That’s why I wanted to say ‘Stranger Things 2,’ because I don’t want to think about it as a TV show. Maybe it’s a snobby thing, but it’s like: ‘Oh, I want it to be a movie. I want it to be a movie sequel.
Matt Duffer
As an Internet celebrity Nutritionist, its wonderful to be sitting in a café in Northern Italy and have a total stranger come up and thank me for me work. But I must say that it certainly keeps me personally walking the walk that I talk.
Steven Gundry
Since the Greek myths, the greatest stories are premised on the idea of, ‘A stranger arrives.’

David Harbour
In classic noir fiction and film, it is always hot. Fans whirr in sweltering hotel rooms, sweat forms on a stranger’s brow, the muggy air stifles – one can hardly breathe.

Michael Dirda
It was a proof of Welsh good nature: so long as I had a friend that knew and could introduce me, the whole Welsh people would do anything to entertain, and would even neglect their business to do so. But as a stranger in Wales, it is difficult to break through their suspicion and mistrust.
W. H. Davies
I started ‘Outer Banks,’ because there’s so much hype around it. I saw one episode and I didn’t really continue, but I got to keep going at it.

Noah Schnapp
Many people see the chance to eat something for nothing, without the need to cook or wash up, as the great consolation of going out to dinner. But they forget quite how difficult it is to talk to a stranger and eat at the same time.

Marie Corelli
I always wish I could just see the ‘Stranger Things’ from an audience standpoint and not from mine. ‘Cause when I watch it, I remember someone was behind there and behind there. I just can’t watch it like a viewer. But I love seeing something on paper come to TV.
Noah Schnapp

Normally in spy movies, the person that the hero deals with is at the centre of power, surrounded by video screens, and they’re old and grizzled. I’m no stranger to that dynamic.

Stranger Things’ was my first job, and I was learning everything as I was doing it and it was such a whirlwind.
Shannon Purser

Thomas Brodie-Sangster
Acting is even stranger than I thought it would be.

The most difficult idea to reconcile in war is the notion that anything is going to be solved by killing a stranger, or in risking your life for a cause anchored in some distant political arena.

Sarah McLachlan
‘Couch surfing’ refers to the practice of temporarily lodging with a stranger – free of charge, unless you count being incessantly sociable as payment.

Franklin P. Jones
Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place.

I got so tired of everybody talking about ‘Stranger Things,’ I think I developed a mental block against watching it.
Henry Thomas
There have been a lot of times in my life where I came out to a perfect stranger by some chance encounter. It’s way easier than coming out to your family. I started high school ‘out,’ then I had to tell my family. I had to introduce myself to the family.
Liv Bruce
Strange – I’m not much of a film person. I love watching films, but they don’t stay with me the way books do. Stranger still, because my husband is a screenwriter!

When I saw the Penderecki concert in London, in ’92 or ’93, I thought there were speakers in the room. It was just strings. But I could hear these kind of buzzings and rumblings, and I was like, ‘Where is this all coming from?’ And that was just better, to my ears. Odder, stranger, more magical.
Jonny Greenwood
I didn’t even have a career before ‘Stranger Things’ – it was my first acting job, my first time on a professional set, and my character wasn’t even supposed to be a big deal – it all just exploded.
Shannon Purser

Before, I would just only stick to a few certain colors that were considered good for my skin tone and good for my hair. But ever since ‘Stranger Things,’ the wardrobe people there, they would always stick me in these super bright colors. I discovered all these new colors that I just like wearing.
Sadie Sink
When we billed the project to Netflix, we had this big two-and-a-half-minute trailer that had about 20 or 30 of these movies kind of woven together to try and tell the story of ‘Stranger Things,’ but obviously all these images or ideas were in our heads.
Matt Duffer
Heinlein never had a best-seller. Even, I think, with Stranger in a Strange Land, I don’t think it was actually on the New York Times best seller list.
Jerry Pournelle
It’s a sad commentary when children feel they can talK to a stranger better than their own parents and ask him to solve their personal problems.
Lorne Greene
Most of the fans of Calpurnia are ‘Stranger Things’ fans, which is not a big deal at all. They’re super loyal and incredible, and really do like the music. It’s the people who aren’t fans of the music and are just there because of ‘Stranger Things’ that really bother me.
Finn Wolfhard
For every hate-filled attempt to harm, there will be always the legion of those who do not hesitate to give their help and care to a stranger when it is needed.

Noah Schnapp
When we were first writing ‘Stranger Things,’ the first thing we wrote was that Dungeons & Dragons scene. And we wrote it in about two minutes. It just poured out of us because it was so close to us.

When I think about where most of Scripture points me, it is toward defending the poor, and the immigrant, and the stranger, and the prisoner, and the outcast, and those who are left behind by the way society works.

Joe Haldeman
I think that’s what ‘Stranger Things’ does, it opens you up – it has a real beating heart to it.
David Harbour
Without the name, any flower is still more or less a stranger to you. The name betrays its family, its relationship to other flowers, and gives the mind something tangible to grasp. It is very difficult for persons who have had no special training to learn the names of the flowers from the botany.
John Burroughs
In classic noir fiction and film, it is always hot. Fans whirr in sweltering hotel rooms, sweat forms on a stranger’s brow, the muggy air stifles – one can hardly breathe.

Michael Dirda
A guy stopped me in the street the other day as I was skipping and singing to myself while walking with my son, Hudson who was also dancing along. I didn’t even realize I was doing it, it was just happening, and that made me smile. It rubs off on Hudson and it even rubbed off on a total stranger.

Fred Armisen
Middle school left some scars, as I’m sure it did for many of us. When my body started to change, I felt a bit like I was living inside a stranger. People began responding to me differently, which was confusing.
Dan Amboyer
‘Under the Skin’ is handsome, in a dour way, but inert – a cunning experiment that died in the shooting or on the editing table.

Richard Corliss
In Mumbai, I feel like a stranger.
Gautham Menon
What a strange thing man is; and what a stranger thing woman.
Lord Byron

When I filmed ‘Power Rangers,’ almost everything was being assisted by a green screen, but it wasn’t the same with ‘Stranger Things.’

Matt Duffer
Yeah it would be really cool to disappear. Like Jack Nicholson in ‘The Passenger.’ Isn’t that the final frontier? Being able to erase everything everyone knows about you and just be a stranger has become extremely seductive.
Oneohtrix Point Never
Life is always going to be stranger than fiction, because fiction has to be convincing, and life doesn’t.
Neil Gaiman

W. E. B. Du Bois

Suleika Jaouad
I think it is all a matter of love: the more you love a memory, the stronger and stranger it is.

J. M. Coetzee
I don’t believe in the term ‘guilty pleasure,’ because it implies I should feel ashamed for liking something. A real guilty pleasure would be, I don’t know, taking gratification in some stranger’s ghastly death or something – which I guess I do enjoy, because I read a ton of true crime.
Bill Hader
Award ceremonies are strange because you’re sitting next to someone you’ve never met; you’re celebrating with a total stranger.

Arthur Schopenhauer
We were at a Giants game, and my manager told me, ‘Sadie, you have an audition for a show called ‘Stranger Things,” and I had just finished binge-watching it in a few days.
Sadie Sink
God is not distant: he is ‘Emmanuel,’ God-with-us. He is no stranger: he has a face, the face of Jesus.
Pope Benedict XVI
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Melody Beattie
Of all the parts that make up my somewhat quirky life, there are few things that raise a stranger’s eyebrows faster than discovering I love country music.
LZ Granderson
Things like, when a total stranger says, ‘I want you to record something for my forthcoming wedding,’ that can be a bit tiresome. But it’s a high-class problem. It doesn’t hurt my feelings.
Matt Berry

Kellyanne Conway
Race prejudice has nothing to do with color. It has to do with being the stranger.

For me, Will being gay or not is besides the point. ‘Stranger Things’ is a show about a bunch of kids who are outsiders and find each other because they have been bullied in some way or are different.
Noah Schnapp
To the predators… Weinstein, the stranger, the relative, the boyfriend… I say to you, ‘You can choose your sin but you don’t get to choose the consequences.’ To the victims… I see you. I believe you… and I’m listening.
Viola Davis
As a child, I heard many warnings from teachers about the perils of talking with strangers. Yet now, fairly late in my life, I can think of not many things better than to talk with strangers. The idea of being a stranger is also very appealing.
Michael Leunig
There’s been a long lineage of a stranger in a strange land, whether it’s ‘E.T.,’ ‘Starman,’ or other movies about trying to connect with humanity; it struck me that’s what a Superman story really is.
David S. Goyer
I have a sense that the USDA and the secretary who represents the USDA has always been seen as either a stranger or adversary to the farming community and a stranger to the consuming community.
Mike Espy
From my point of view, ‘Stranger in a Strange Land’ isn’t just a science fiction masterpiece; it also happens to be one of my favorite books ever.
Bonnie Hammer
