The Hellstrom Chronicle (1971)
In fighting the insect we have killed ourselves, polluted our water, poisoned our wildlife, permeated our own flesh with deadly toxins. The insect becomes immune and we are poisoned. In fighting with superior intellect, we have outsmarted ourselves.
I'm going to have the fucking poached salmon, with the son-of-a-bitching rice, and a dirty bastard salad with a shitload of Roquefort dressing. Thank you. And um, who knows what this asshole wants.
Harold and Maude (1971)
A lot of people enjoy being dead. But they are not dead, really. They're just backing away from life. REACH out. Take a CHANCE. Get HURT even. But play as well as you can. Go team, go! Give me an L. Give me an I. Give me a V. Give me an E. L-I-V-E. LIVE! Otherwise, you got nothing to talk about in the locker room.
Les amours imaginaires (2010)
But, of course, I fall for that arrogant prick Jean-Marc who takes forever to answer my e-mails.
E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
Elliot, I don't think he was left here intentionally, but his being here is a miracle. It's a miracle and you did the best that anybody could do. I'm glad he met you first.
She's Gotta Have It (1986)
It's really about control, my body, my mind. Who was going to own it? Them? Or me? I'm not a one-man woman. Bottom line.
I went into Dalton's room... there was something in there with him. It was standing in the corner. I asked it, "Who are you?" It said, "A visitor." I then asked it, "What do you want?" It said Dalton.
I was never more certain of how far away I was from my goal than when I was standing right beside it.
Mitt liv som hund (1985)
Dazed and Confused (1993)
I may play ball next fall, but I will never sign that. Now, me and my loser friends are gonna head out to buy Aerosmith tickets. Top priority of the summer.
Stand by Me (1986)
Wish the hell I was your dad. You wouldn't be goin' around talkin' about takin' these stupid shop courses if I was. It's like God gave you something, man, all those stories you can make up. And He said, "This is what we got for ya, kid. Try not to lose it." Kids lose everything unless there's someone there to look out for them. And if your parents are too fucked up to do it, then maybe I should.
Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss; but every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and once you do, nothing will ever compare.
A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets. But now you know there was a man named Jack Dawson and that he saved me... in every way that a person can be saved. I don't even have a picture of him. He exists now... only in my memory.
Get Real (1998)
When I was in the cubs, there was this porn mag being passed around and all the other kids were deciding which girl they liked and stuff. And this other kid, he whispers to me, "I don’t know what all the fuss is about. I’d rather see another boy’s willy any time!" So I said, "So would I!"
The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)
Don't you just want to take the past and put it in a room in a basement and lock the door and never go in there? That's what I do. And then you meet someone special and all you want to do is to toss them the key and say, "Open up, step inside." But you can't because it's dark, there's demons and if anybody saw how ugly it is... I keep wanting to do that, fling the door open, just let light in and clean everything out.
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Kidnap the Sandy Claws, beat him with a stick. Lock him up for ninety years, see what makes him tick.
Before Sunset (2004)
What’s sad, in a way, is that the people that are the most giving, hardworking, and capable of making this world better usually don’t have the ego and ambition to be a leader.
American Psycho (2000)
There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there.
Jurassic Park (1993)
I’ll tell you the problem with the scientific power that you’re using here: it didn’t require any discipline to attain it. You read what others had done and you took the next step. You didn’t earn the knowledge for yourselves, so you don’t take any responsibility for it. You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could and before you even knew what you had you patented it and packaged it and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox.
You don't care about people, Hud. You don't give a damn about 'em. Oh, you got all that charm goin' for ya. And it makes the youngsters want to be like ya. That's the shame of it because you don't value anything. You don't respect nothing. You keep no check on your appetites at all. You live just for yourself. And that makes you not fit to live with.
In Bruges (2008)
#1, why aren't you in when I fucking told you to be in? #2, why doesn't this hotel have phones with fucking voicemail and not have to leave messages with the fucking receptionist? #3, you better fucking be in tomorrow night when I fucking call again or there'll be fucking hell to pay. I'm fucking telling you - Harry.
If you keep hiding forever, one day you might lose yourself completely.
Jackie Brown (1997)
Now, sooner or later, they're gonna get around to offering me a plea deal, and you know that. That's why you came here to kill me.
For me, stealing's always been a lot like sex. Two people who want the same thing: They get in a room, they talk about it. They start to plan. It's kind of like flirting. It's kind of like... foreplay, 'cause the more they talk about it, the wetter they get. The only difference is, I can fuck someone I've just met. But to steal? I need to know someone like I know myself.
28 Days Later (2002)
It started as rioting. But right from the beginning you knew this was different. Because it was happening in small villages, market towns. And then it wasn't on the TV any more. It was in the street outside. It was coming in through your windows. It was a virus. An infection. You didn't need a doctor to tell you that. It was the blood. It was something in the blood. By the time they tried to evacuate the cities it was already too late. Army blockades were overrun. And that's when the exodus started. Before the TV and radio stopped broadcasting there were reports of infection in Paris and New York. We didn't hear anything more after that.
The Others (2001)
Sometimes the world of the living gets mixed up with the world of the dead.
The Dreamers (2003)
I was one of the insatiables. The ones you’d always find sitting closest to the screen. Why do we sit so close? Maybe it was because we wanted to receive the images first–when they were still new, still fresh; before they cleared the hurdles of the rows behind us; before they’d been relayed back from row to row, spectator to spectator; until worn out, secondhand, the size of a postage stamp, it returned to the projectionist’s cabin. Maybe, too, the screen was really a screen. It screened us… from the world.
Blood Simple (1984)
If you point a gun at someone, you'd better make sure you shoot him, and if you shoot him you'd better make sure he's dead, because if he isn't then he's gonna get up and try to kill you.
It’s a lie. It’s a bunch of sad strangers photographed beautifully, and all the glittering assholes who appreciate art say it’s beautiful ’cause that’s what they wanna see. But the people in the photos are sad, and alone. But the pictures make the world seem beautiful, so… the exhibition is reassuring which makes it a lie, and everyone loves a big fat lie.
Mean Girls (2004)
Most people think I'm lying about being a virgin because I prefer jumbo tampons, but I can't help it if I have a heavy flow and a wide-set vagina.
The Shining (1980)
Well, you know, Doc, when something happens, you can leave a trace of itself behind. Say like, if someone burns toast. Well, maybe things that happen leave other kinds of traces behind. Not things that anyone can notice, but things that people who "shine" can see. Just like they can see things that haven't happened yet. Well, sometimes they can see things that happened a long time ago. I think a lot of things happened right here in this particular hotel over the years. And not all of 'em was good.
Kill Bill (2003)
As I lay in the back of Buck’s truck, trying to will my limbs out of entropy, I could see the faces of the cunts that did this to me and the dicks responsible. Members all of Bill’s brainchild: The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. When fortune smiles on something as violent and ugly as revenge, it seems proof like no other, that God exists, and not only does He exist, you’re doing His will.
Scream 2 (1997)
Stupid people go back. Smart people run. We're smart people, so we should just get the fuck outta here!
We took morphine, diamorphine, cyclizine, codeine, temazepam, nitrazepam, phenobarbitone, sodium amytal, dextropropo xyphene, methadone, nalbuphine, pethidine, pentazocine, buprenorphine, dextromoramide, chlormethiazole. The streets are awash with drugs you can have for unhappiness and pain, and we took them all. Fuck it, we would of injected vitimin C if only they'd made it illegal.
Minority Report (2002)
It’s funny how all living organisms are alike. When the chips are down and the pressure is up, every creature on this earth is interested in one thing and one thing only. Its own survival.
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
The 9000 series is the most reliable computer ever made. No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error.
Fellas, let's be reasonable, huh? This is not the time or the place to perform some kind of a half-assed autopsy on a fish... And I'm not going to stand here and see that thing cut open and see that little Kintner boy spill out all over the dock.
Mysterious Skin (2004)
As we sat there listening to the carolers, I wanted to tell Brian that it was over now and that everything would be okay. But that was a lie. Plus, I couldn’t speak anyway. I wish there was some way to go back and undo the past. But there wasn’t. There was nothing we could do. So I just stayed silent and tried to telepathically communicate how sorry I was about what happened. And I thought of all the grief and suffering and fucked up stuff in the world and it made me want to escape. I wished with all my heart we could just leave this world behind. Rise like two angels in the night and magically disappear.
You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001)
She does not love you, David; she cannot love you. You are neither flesh, nor blood. You are not a dog, a cat, or a canary. You were designed and built specific, like the rest of us. And you are alone now only because they’re tired of you, or replaced you with a younger model, or were displeased with something you said, or broke. They made us too smart, too quick, and too many. We are suffering for the mistakes they made because when the end comes, all that will be left is us.
I met him fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no conscience, no understanding; even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, good or evil, right or wrong. I met this six-year-old child, with this blank, pale, emotionless face and, the blackest eyes… the devil’s eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized what was living behind that boy’s eyes was purely and simply… evil.
Les roseaux sauvages (1994)
There are times in life where we are set major challenges, and it is all about how we react to them that counts the most.
The Thin Red Line (1998)
This great evil. Where does it come from? How'd it steal into the world? What seed, what root did it grow from? Who's doin' this? Who's killin' us? Robbing us of life and light. Mockin' us with the sight of what we might've known. Does our ruin benefit the earth? Does it help the grass to grow, the sun to shine? Is this darkness in you, too? Have you passed through this night?
La mala educación (2004)
I think I've just lost my faith at this moment, so I no longer believe in God or hell. As I don't believe in hell, I'm not afraid. And without fear I'm capable of anything.
The Exorcist (1973)
Especially important is the warning to avoid conversations with the demon. We may ask what is relevant but anything beyond that is dangerous. He is a liar. The demon is a liar. He will lie to confuse us. But he will also mix lies with the truth to attack us. The attack is psychological, Damien, and powerful. So don't listen to him. Remember that--do not listen.
So foul and fair a day I have not seen.
Bourne Series (2002-2007)
I can tell you the license plate numbers of all six cars outside. I can tell you that our waitress is left-handed and the guy sitting up at the counter weighs two hundred fifteen pounds and knows how to handle himself. I know the best place to look for a gun is the cab of the gray truck outside, and at this altitude, I can run flat out for a half mile before my hands start shaking. Now why would I know that? How can I know that and not know who I am?
How old were you when you first engaged in sexual activity with a partner?
Indiana Jones Series (1981-2008)
Since I've met you I've nearly been incinerated, drowned, shot at and chopped into fish bait. We're caught in the middle of something sinister here. My guess is dad found out more than he was looking for and until I am sure I am going to continue to do things the way I think they should be done.
Super 8 (2011)
Excuse me, can I have another order of fries? Because my friend here is fat.
Naked Lunch (1991)
Did I ever tell you about the man who taught his asshole to talk? His whole abdomen would move up and down you dig farting out the words. It was unlike anything I had ever heard. This asshole talk had sort of a gut frequency. It hit you right down there like you gotta go. You know when the old colon gives you the elbow and it feels sorta cold inside, and you know all you have to do is turn loose?
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (2008)
Look, other bands, they want to make it about sex or pain, but you know, The Beatles, they had it all figured out, okay? "I Want to Hold Your Hand." The first single. It's effing brilliant, right? ...That's what everybody wants, Nicky. They don't want a twenty-four-hour hump sesh, they don't want to be married to you for a hundred years. They just want to hold your hand.
