In the early 1980s, Georg Dreyman (a successful dramatist) and his longtime companion Christa-Maria Sieland (a popular actress), were huge intellectual stars in (former) East Germany, although they secretly don’t always toe the party line. One day, the Minister of Culture becomes interested in Christa, so the secret service agent Wiesler is instructed to observe and sound out the couple, but their life fascinates him more and more.
[last lines] Buchverkäufer: 29.80. Would you like it gift wrapped? Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: No. It’s for me.
[Wiesler enters the elevator at his apartment building. A young boy with a ball joins him]Junge mit Ball: Are you really with the Stasi? Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: Do you even know what the Stasi is? Junge mit Ball: Yes. They’re bad men who put people in prison, says my dad. Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: I see. What is the name of your… [pauses] Junge mit Ball: My what? Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: [thinks for a few more seconds] Ball. What’s the name of your ball? Junge mit Ball: You’re funny. Balls don’t have names.
Georg Dreyman: You know what Lenin said about Beethoven’s Appassionata, ‘If I keep listening to it, I won’t finish the revolution.’ Can anyone who has heard this music, I mean truly heard it, really be a bad person?
Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: Madam? Christa-Maria Sieland: Go away. I want to be alone. Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: Madam Sieland? Christa-Maria Sieland: Do we know each other? Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: You don’t know me, but I know you. Many people love you for who you are. Christa-Maria Sieland: Actors are never “who they are.” Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: You are. I’ve seen you on stage. You were more who you are than you are now. Christa-Maria Sieland: So you know what I’m like. Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: I’m your audience. Christa-Maria Sieland: I have to go. Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: Where to? Christa-Maria Sieland: I’m meeting an old classmate. I… Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: You see? Just now, you weren’t being yourself. Christa-Maria Sieland: No? Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: No. Christa-Maria Sieland: So you know her well, this Christa-Maria Sieland. What do you think – would she hurt someone who loves her above all else? Would she sell herself for art? Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: For art? You already have art. That’d be a bad deal. You are a great artist. Don’t you know that? Christa-Maria Sieland: And you are a good man.
Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler: An innocent prisoner will become more angry by the hour due to the injustice suffered. He will shout and rage. A guilty prisoner becomes more calm and quiet. Or he cries. He knows he’s there for a reason. The best way to establish guilt or innocence is non-stop interrogation.
Georg Dreyman: The state office for statistics on Hans-Beimler street counts everything; knows everything: how many pairs of shoes I buy a year: 2.3, how many books I read a year: 3.2 and how many students graduate with perfect marks: 6,347. But there’s one statistic that isn’t collected there, perhaps because such numbers cause even paper-pushers pain: and that is the suicide rate.
Oberstleutnant Anton Grubitz: I have to show you something: “Prison Conditions for Subversive Artists: Based on Character Profile”. Pretty scientific, eh? And look at this: “Dissertation Supervisor, A. Grubitz”. That’s great, isn’t it? I only gave him a B. They shouldn’t think getting a doctorate with me is easy. But his is first-class. Did you know that there are just five types of artists? Your guy, Dreyman, is a Type 4, a “hysterical anthropocentrist.” Can’t bear being alone, always talking, needing friends. That type should never be brought to trial. They thrive on that. Temporary detention is the best way to deal with them. Complete isolation and no set release date. No human contact the whole time, not even with the guards. Good treatment, no harassment, no abuse, no scandals, nothing they could write about later. After 10 months, we release. Suddenly, that guy won’t cause us any more trouble. Know what the best part is? Most type 4s we’ve processed in this way never write anything again. Or paint anything, or whatever artists do. And that without any use of force. Just like that. Kind of like a present.
Unterleutnant Axel Stigler: [enthusiastic] I’ve got a new one.

We can still laugh about our state officials. Don’t worry. Oberstleutnant Anton Grubitz: [almost laughing] I probably know it already anyway. Oberstleutnant Anton Grubitz: [encouraging] Come on! Tell it. Unterleutnant Axel Stigler: [feeling more comfortable] Well… Honecker, I mean… the General Secretary… sees the sun, and says, ‘Good morning dear sun!’ Oberstleutnant Anton Grubitz: [with high pitch mocking voice] ‘Good morning dear sun!’ Unterleutnant Axel Stigler: …and the sun answered, ‘Good morning dear Erich!’ At afternoon Erich sees the sun again and says, ‘Good day dear sun’ And the sun says: ‘Good day dear Erich!’ After work Honecker goes back to the window and says, ‘Good evening dear sun!’ But the sun doesn’t answer! So he says again, ‘Good evening dear sun, what’s wrong?’ And the sun answered and said, ‘Oh, kiss my ass, I’m in the West now!’ [laughing] Oberstleutnant Anton Grubitz: Name?

Surely just the tip of the iceberg! I am going to report this to the minister’s office. Oberstleutnant Anton Grubitz: [starts laughing] Hahahaha! I was just kidding! Pretty good, huh? Yours was good too. But I’ve got a better one. What is the difference between Erich Honecker and a telephone? [pauses] Oberstleutnant Anton Grubitz: Nothing! Hang up… try again. Hahaha!
Georg Dreyman: You are a great artist. I know that, and your audience knows it, too. You don’t need him. You don’t need him. Stay here. Don’t go to him. Christa-Maria Sieland: No? I don’t need him? Don’t I need this whole system? What about you? Then you don’t need it either, or need it even less. But you get in bed with them, too. Why do you do it?

Shutter Island (2010) Review
U.S. Marshals Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) are on a ferryboat in foggy Boston Harbour headed towards Shutter Island, an island containing a federal mental hospital for the criminally insane. They are going to the island because a woman patient named Rachel escaped the day before. Teddy is very ill, sweating and throwing up in the toilet, telling himself to get it together, it’s just water. Then he looks out the window and says it’s a LOT of water. He goes up on deck to talk to Chuck, and it’s apparent that they are new partners working for the first time together. During their conversation it is revealed that Teddy’s wife died in an apartment fire several years before. Chuck is sorry he brought it up. He refers to Teddy as boss all the way through the movie, and at one point mentions that Teddy is a legend, so we know that Teddy is well known through the Marshal Service and that he is Chuck’s superior.
They get to the island, and the ferry captain mentions that there is a big storm coming. Teddy and Chuck meet the deputy warden, McPherson, who takes them into the mental hospital grounds. There are high walls that make it look like a prison, and electrified wire on the perimeter, but the actual buildings and grounds look almost like a college campus. There is the A building, housing the male patients, B building for the women patients, and C building which is situated on the highest point of the island and we are told it was a civil war fortress. It houses the most dangerous patients and the marshals are told that under no circumstances are they to go there on their own without McPherson and Dr. Cawley (Ben Kingsley) accompanying them. There is a brief argument when deputy warden McPherson requires them to give up their firearms. Teddy says that they are federal agents, but McPherson tells them that federal penitentiary law overrides that and says that they won’t get through the gates with their weapons. They reluctantly give them up, with Chuck rather clumsily removing his holster from his pants, which gets him a look from McPherson and Teddy.
They meet Dr. Cawley, who explains a bit about the facility and psychiatry. Dr. Cawley says that there is a war going on in psychiatry, with one faction who believes in surgical techniques like lobotomies to treat patients, where another side says that the new psychotropic drugs are the way to treat people. He believes that sometimes just listening to a patient and quietly making their life comfortable is the way to go. Teddy still has a splitting headache from the ferry trip, and the doctor gives him some water and some pills that he says are aspirin. He explains that Rachel, a patient, has escaped the night before but says that it’s impossible because she seems to have simply vanished through the walls. She is at Shutter Island because she drowned three of her children one by one, and then pretended that they had never died. In fact, she believes that she is still at her home at the hospital, and all of the staff and other inmates are merely neighbours or deliverymen that she encounters in her daily life. She refuses to accept that she has killed anyone, or even that her children are dead.
They tour the rest of the island, where officers are looking for the escaped Rachel. There is a lighthouse on the other side of the island that is gated off and there are armed guards, which makes Teddy a little suspicious.
Teddy makes it clear that his job is to interview staff and patients. He says he needs the personnel records of the staff, but the doctor kind of blows that off. They go to the patient living quarters and interview staff about the night that Rachel left. In her cell, there is a loose floorboard and a handwritten note from her, saying “The law of 4. Who is 67?”. The staff are less than helpful at the meeting that Teddy and Chuck have to ask about her, but do note that she had attended group therapy right before she went to her room and disappeared. During the meeting, it is revealed that she has a staff physician who conducted the meeting, a Dr. Shaheen. When Teddy asks where he is, Dr. Cawley says he just left that morning on the ferry to go on a long planned vacation. Teddy is incredulous that a dangerous mental patient has just escaped, there’s a lockdown, and her doctor is allowed to just go on vacation. Things definitely look suspicious at this point.
There are a series of dream sequences interspersed, flashbacks about Teddy’s time in WWII as a soldier, and Teddy often has internal conversations with himself in which his dead wife, Dolores (Michelle Williams), talks to him and gives him advice. In one flashback, Teddy’s unit is the first to liberate the Dachau concentration camp. There are many dead Jews. Teddy is especially moved by a dead woman and her dead daughter in her arms in the middle of a pile of dead bodies. Teddy remembers watching the German Camp Commander attempt suicide by shooting himself, but he only wounds himself, shooting himself in the side of his face. The German tries to reach his gun to finish the job, but Teddy slowly slides the gun away with his foot just out of reach of the German, watching him suffer before he bleeds to death. In other dreams, his wife discovering that he has a lot of empty bottles of alcohol that he has hidden around the house. He explains that the things he saw while in Germany are the reason why he drinks so much.
After the meeting with staff, Dr. Cawley has Teddy and Chuck over to his mansion on the island to have a cigar and something to drink. When they arrive, there is a Dr. Naehring (Max von Sydow) in the den, and he seems to be Dr. Cawley’s superior. Teddy takes an instant dislike to him when he notices a faint German accent, and the two verbally spar for a little bit. Dr. Naehring is amused, commenting on Teddy’s remarkable defence mechanisms. Dr. Naehring calls Teddy and Chuck men of violence, which offends Chuck. But the doctor says he doesn’t mean that they are violent men, only that they are men who have seen violence and don’t shy away from it if necessary. He correctly surmises that they were both in the army during WWII, and that they weren’t raised to run away from violence. Teddy gets angry when they say that they’ve consulted the board of directors who have refused to release the staff’s personnel records, angry enough that Teddy breaks a glass, threatens to end the investigation in the morning and turn his findings over to the FBI, and storms off in a huff.
The next day, the storm has hit the island and it is clear the ferry will not arrive. Teddy was only bluffing the night before as he has no intention of leaving without investigating the island some more. Teddy and Chuck have several interviews with the patients who were in the group therapy session with Rachel. They are unhelpful and all seem to be following a script because they say very similar things in their interviews. In one interview, a woman asks Chuck for a glass of water and when he leaves, she grabs Teddy’s notebook and writes something very quickly and gives it back to him.
He and Chuck leave the hospital grounds and explore the island, ending up at the cemetery. The wind and rain are picking up and they find sanctuary in a cemetery vault. Chuck asks Teddy to level with him; he suspects that the last patient told him something while he was getting her water, and Teddy finally shows him the notebook, and it says RUN. Teddy finally explains that he was trying to get assigned to an investigation of the mental hospital for some time. He says that a man named Laeddis was a maintenance worker at the apartment they lived in and he was the arsonist who set the fire that killed his wife. He got off on a technicality, but later was caught when he killed some other people. He was sent to the mental hospital here. But when Teddy looked into it, there was no paperwork at all for Laeddis, and he suspects that there is some greater conspiracy going on. He mentions the Nazi experiments and wonders if his own government is involved in psychotropic drug research as well. He tells Chuck that he came across a prisoner by the name of George Noyce who was actually sent here some time before and he was the one who clued Teddy in that there was some crazy research going on here.
Chuck suddenly gets paranoid that maybe in all of Teddy’s poking around he alerted the wrong people to his interest in Shutter Island and that maybe they arranged the disappearance of Rachel as an excuse to draw him here as a Marshal to investigate where they could make both of them disappear. Teddy is not sure that’s possible, but Chuck is pretty convincing and suddenly, the door busts in and there is a car spotlight on them from dep. Warden McPherson’s car. Hes been looking for them and they get in and he takes them back to the hospital. They change out of their wet business suits, and the orderly gives them the staff white uniforms that almost make them look like patients, and he tells them that it will take a day or two to get their suits back. They don’t like the whites but take them anyway. The orderly says their cigarettes were ruined (they both smoke a lot), but he gives them two new packs of cigs.
They meet in Dr. Cawley’s office again. They argue briefly about the investigation, and suddenly Teddy gets ill again, a migraine. He thinks he’ll be okay, but then he starts to fall and Chuck catches him. The doctor gives him a couple of pills, but Teddy doesn’t want to take them. Hes really sick, though, and the doctor almost insists that he take them, and he does. Chuck helps him down to the basement with all the rest of the staff to wait out the hurricane like storm. Just before he dozes off, he sees a sinister looking guy, who an orderly says is the warden (Ted Levine, the killer from Silence of the Lambs). The warden kind of sneers at Teddy right before Teddy falls asleep.
Teddy has another dream sequence with his wife, who tells him that Rachel is on the island, and that he needs to help her. In a dream, Teddy is in Dr. Cawley’s den, and Laeddis (Elias Koteas) in his chair by the fire. Laeddis has a really nasty scar running from his right eye down to the left side of his chin, and his left eye is milky white.
The next day is kind of chaotic. The backup generators fail, and all of the patients’ cell doors were therefore opened. Trees are fallen all over the hospital campus with staff and officers trying to clean up as well as gather up all of the wandering patients. Teddy and Chuck use this as an opportunity to go up to C building while no one is really paying attention to them. The place is really dark inside and they wander around. A patient runs from them and they give chase. Chuck falls behind and the patient grabs Teddy from behind and is choking him. Teddy gets away and beats the crap out of him until Chuck pulls him off. A guard chews out Teddy and has Chuck help him take the patient to the medical centre, telling Teddy to take a walk and cool off.
Teddy wanders around and finds a row of cells where a prisoner is sitting by himself and saying the name Laeddis. When Teddy demands the prisoner look at him, he realizes it is George Noyce, the guy who was a former patient here who told him about what was going on at Shutter Island. Noyce’s face is badly beaten. Teddy can’t believe he is back here and Noyce is yelling at him that its all about Laeddis, isn’t it? He tells Teddy that the only way he can save Noyce is to forget his wife and Laeddis and focus on what is going on here. Teddy looks guilty when Noyce tells him it is his fault that Noyce is back here because he kept inquiring about Laeddis. Teddy promises that he’ll get Noyce out of there. Noyce tells him that Laeddis is no longer in C building, but that they have taken him to the lighthouse, where they are planning to do a lobotomy on him. He says that the lighthouse is where they do a lot of their experiments on people who are troublemakers. Noyce questions him about Noyce, implying that he is a plant by the government to follow Teddy. He asks him whether hes ever worked with Chuck before, and we know that they haven’t because they let us know that in the beginning.
Teddy finally catches up with Chuck and they head towards the office. Dr. Cawley says they found Rachel (Emily Mortimer). They go to her cell and there is a weird scene where Teddy tries to talk to her and she ultimately thinks he is her dead husband and starts yelling at him.
At some point, Teddy’s dream sequences now include Rachel as the woman with her daughter in the pile of bodies at Dachau. And this time they open their eyes and look at him. The girl asks him why he didn’t save her. He says he tried but they (the soldiers) just didnt get there in time. In another scene, Rachel is all bloody but she is at Teddy and his wife’s vacation cottage. They go outside and Teddy sees the little girl and picks her up and carries her to the water. The little girl asks him again why he didn’t save her and he looks sad.
Teddy and Chuck leave and Chuck says he found Laeddis’s file but there was only his commitment paper in the file which he tries to show Teddy but he wont look at it now because he is intent on reaching the lighthouse. Teddy is acting suspicious of Chuck when he tries to talk him out of going to the lighthouse. They arrive at the cliffs over the ocean and realize they are too far south of the lighthouse. Teddy says he is going to go around and try to get there a different way. Again Chuck tries to talk him out of it because it’s dangerous to scale the cliffs when it will be dark soon. They argue some more and Teddy tells him he is going by himself. Teddy gets near the lighthouse but finds that it is late enough in the day that the tide has cut off the lighthouse from the island. He gives up and goes back to where Chuck is to tell him they’ll try later. But all he sees is a burning cigarette on the edge of the cliff (it’s about a hundred feet down to the rocks below). He looks over and sees Chuck at the bottom of the cliff with waves crashing over him.
Shocked, Teddy climbs down the cliff but doesn’t see Chuck at the bottom. He sees a cave in the side of the cliff with a fire burning inside. When he reaches the cave, he sees a woman armed with a knife. They begin talking and she says she is Rachel (Patricia Clarkson), but that she was a doctor at the hospital who found out too much and they committed her and concocted a story that she killed her kids. The other Rachel must be an imposter they used to fool Teddy and Chuck. She says there is a secret government program to test a number of new drugs on the patients to make them sort of super spies or soldiers who don’t feel pain and don’t have memories that can be tortured out of them if they are captured. She then warns Teddy that they will not let him leave. They will concoct a story that he went crazy. She asks him if he had a serious trauma (his wife dying), and says that they will use that to say that he cracked. She asks him if he has taken any medication (he has; the aspirin for his headaches). She asks if he’s eaten at the hospital, or smoked any of their cigarettes (the orderly gave him a new pack when his clothes were all wet). She says that it takes 36-48 hours for psychotropic drugs to take effect and make him pliable for them to control. The first sign will be tremors in his hands, which he already has. She also questions whether Chuck is even a Marshal, that he is probably a government agent sent to go with him to the island.
When Teddy gets back to the road, he sees a jeep pull up with the warden. The warden takes him back to the facility and they have a really weird conversation about being men of violence. The warden tells him that men like them know how to use violence and use it well. He asks Teddy if he were to reach over and try to bite his eye out, would Teddy be able to stop him. Teddy says “why don’t you try and well find out?”. The warden smiles and says that’s the Teddy he was expecting.
Teddy leaves to confront Dr. Cawley. Dr. Cawley wonders where Teddy has been. Teddy says he’ll be leaving and he asks if the doctor has seen Chuck, his partner. Dr. Cawley says he came to the island alone, there was no partner. Teddy realizes that they are already starting to put their plan in action by insisting there was no Chuck. He leaves and walks around the grounds, trying to decide what to do next. He sees his wife, who tells him to leave the island and don’t go to the lighthouse. She says the lighthouse will destroy him.
He decides to blow up Dr. Cawley’s car to create a diversion so he can sneak down to the lighthouse. He uses his tie from his suit, soaks it with gas from the gas tank, and lights it. As he moves away from the car, he sees his wife and the little girl in front of the car. It explodes around them but they aren’t burned at all. He runs out of there to make it to the lighthouse. He swims over to it, and sneaks up behind a guard and overpowers him and takes his rifle. The guard asks him if he is going to kill him and he says no, but hits him with the rifle butt and knocks him out. He runs up the stairs of the lighthouse to the top, checking each room but finding no operating rooms for surgical experiments.
He gets to the top and finds Dr. Cawley, sitting behind a desk. Teddy holds the rifle on him while he is talking. The doctor tells him there are no bullets in the rifle, and asks him if he killed the guard below. Teddy says no, but the doctor calls down anyway to tell the people below to attend to the guard before they come up. Teddy sees his gun from the beginning of the movie on the doctors desk.
Dr. Cawley tells Teddy that he is a patient at the hospital, and has been for two years. Teddy doesn’t believe him, and says that he is a U.S. Marshal. The doctor says he was one, but after his breakdown two years ago he was sent here. He broke down when his kids were killed. Teddy says he doesn’t have any kids. Dr. Cawley says they have been trying to use the new drug therapy to help him and have been trying to do everything they could to treat him. Dr. Cawley tells him that he has been one of the most dangerous patients they have had and that there are some who want to lobotomize him to make him manageable. The whole last couple of days were an attempt to do a massive role-play to get him to finally realize the truth. He calls in Dr. Sheehan, the doctor from the beginning that went on vacation right after his patient Rachel disappeared. The door opens and it is .Chuck! He is a psychiatrist who agreed to play along with Teddy’s fantasy and to keep tabs on him. Dr. Cawley tells Teddy that his real name is Laeddis, and he shows him on a chalkboard that his full name and Laeddis’s are an anagram; that is, all the letters in his name can be rearranged to spell Laeddis’s full name. The same thing with his wife’s name and Rachel’s. Teddy constructed the new name Teddy Daniels to create distance from his real name.
The doctor points out that Noyce was a fellow patient who Teddy attacked a few days before, and that was why he was all beaten up looking. Teddy denies this, but the doctor shows him the transcript of what Noyce said to him in the cell earlier, where he said this was all Teddy’s fault. He tells Teddy that the reason why he beat up Noyce was that Noyce called him by his real name.
Teddy grabs his gun off the table and shoots Dr. Cawley, whose blood splashes against the wall. The next second, there is no blood. Dr. Cawley tells him that his gun was a toy gun they gave him when they began the role-play.
He tells Teddy that he has completely erased everything he did wrong in an attempt to make himself be the hero. We finally see a flashback where Teddy/Laeddis comes home to his cottage from a week or two of chasing bad guys in Oklahoma. His wife (Michelle Williams) is acting strangely. He asks where the kids are and she says they are in school. He says it’s Saturday, and she smiles and says, they’re in HER school and looks towards the lake. Horrified, Teddy runs down to the lake and sees his three children face down in the lake. He scoops them all up, crying uncontrollably and places them on the ground. Then his wife hugs him and says they should put the kids at the dining room table and have dinner. Teddy is crying and says if she ever loved him, please stop talking. She is sad now and says she loves him and then there is a shot. Teddy looks down and realizes that he just shot his wife. She is laying there with a lot of blood on her and then she dies.
Teddy now realizes that he has a choice between accepting his truth or continuing to deny it. The doctor makes it clear that if he can’t accept the truth, then Dr. Cawley won’t be able to stop the other doctors from ordering that he be lobotomized. He makes Teddy admit that he blamed himself for not realizing earlier that his wife was having trouble. That he feels responsible for killing his kids because he didn’t get her help when she needed it. He created a fantasy world where he never killed his wife, and he never had a breakdown.
The next day, he and Chuck (Dr. Shaheen), are sitting on some steps by the hospital grounds. He asks Chuck what their next move is (as if he still believes he is investigating the hospital as a U.S. Marshal), and Chuck says, what do you think, boss? Chuck nods to the other doctors across the grounds who then direct some orderlies to move towards Teddy. Teddy asks Chuck whether it’s better to live as a monster or die a good man. He stands up and willingly goes with the orderlies, as he would rather choose to continue his fantasy than accept the horrors of his reality.
Alternatively, he has accepted his reality, but still cannot live with the horrors of it. So now at the end of the film he is actually acting out the fantasy, rather than living it. Effectively, he is cured. However, he still can’t live with his memories so he knowingly forces the doctors to take the decision for physical intervention, ie the lobotomy, knowing he will no longer have to live with his memories as a compliant ‘zombie’..Thus ending his life as a good man.(As contrary in the Book,where the author ended the book with him still as Teddy)

Warden: If I was to sink my teeth into your eye right now, would you be able to stop me before I blinded you? Teddy Daniels: Give it a try. Warden: That’s the spirit.
Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: You both served overseas, huh? Chuck Aule: It’s not much of a stretch, Doc. For all you know, we’re both paper pushers over there. Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: No, you are not. – Since the schoolyard, neither of you has ever walked away from a physical conflict. No, no, not because you enjoyed it, but because retreat isn’t something you consider an option. Chuck Aule: We weren’t raised to run, Doc. Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: Ah, yes. Raised. And who raised you, Marshal? Teddy Daniels: Me? Wolves. [Dr. Naehring and Dr. Cawley laugh again] Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: Very impressive defense mechanisms.
Rachel 2: Fifty years from now, people will look back and say, “Here, at this place, is where it all began. The Nazis used the Jews, Soviets used prisoners in their own Gulags. And we – we tested patients on Shutter Island.”
Warden: Did you enjoy God’s latest gift? Teddy Daniels: What? Warden: God’s gift. Your violence. [Daniels looks at him blankly] Warden: When I came downstairs in my home, and I saw that tree in my living room, it reached out for me… a divine hand. God loves violence. Teddy Daniels: I… I hadn’t noticed. Warden: Sure you have. Why else would there be so much of it? It’s in us. It’s what we are. We wage war, we burn sacrifices, and pillage and plunder and tear at the flesh of our brothers. And why? Because God gave us violence to wage in his honor. Teddy Daniels: I thought God gave us moral order. Warden: There’s no moral order as pure as this storm. There’s no moral order at all. There’s just this: can my violence conquer yours?
Chuck Aule: All I know is it’s a mental hospital. Teddy Daniels: …for the criminally insane.
Rachel 2: You’re smarter than you look, Marshall. That’s probably not a good thing.
Dolores Chanal: Let’s put them at the table, we’ll dry them off, change their clothes. They’ll be our living dolls, huh? Tomorrow we can take them on a picnic. Teddy Daniels: If you ever loved me, Dolores, please stop talking.
Teddy Daniels: I could come get you, get, get you off this island. Rachel 2: Haven’t you heard a word I’ve said? The only way off the island is the ferry, and they control it. You’ll never leave here.
Teddy Daniels: Is there a reason, doctor, why you keep referring to your patient in the past tense? Dr. John Cawley: Take a look outside, marshall. [nods to the storm outside] Dr. John Cawley: . Why do you think?
Warden: You’re as violent as they come. I know this, because I’m as violent as they come. If the constraints of society were lifted, and I was all that stood between you and a meal, you would crack my skull with a rock and eat my meaty parts. Wouldn’t you?
Dr. John Cawley: It’s my job to treat the patients, not their victims.
Rachel 2: Do you know how pain enters the body, Marshal? Do you? Teddy Daniels: Depends on where you’re hurt? Rachel 2: No, it has nothing to do with the flesh. The brain controls pain.
Dolores Chanal: Set me free. [recurring line] Teddy Daniels: We gotta get off this rock, Chuck.
Dr. John Cawley: [re: Rachel] We don’t know how she got out of her room. It was locked from the outside. And the only window’s barred. It’s as if she evaporated, straight through the walls.
Teddy Daniels: They’re experimenting on people here. Chuck Aule: I don’t know, boss. How can you believe a crazy guy? Teddy Daniels: That’s the beauty of it. Mental Patients make the perfect subjects, if they talk nobody listens to them!
Dr. John Cawley: You blew up my car. I really loved that car.
Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: Men like you are my specialty, you know. Men of violence. Chuck Aule: Now, that’s a hell of an assumption to make. Dr. Jeremiah Naehring: No assumption, no, not at all. You misunderstand me. I said, you are ‘men of violence’. I’m not accusing you of being violent men. That’s quite different.
Warden: [Leaning across the jeep to Teddy as he lets him out] If I was to sink my teeth into your eye right now, would you be able to stop me before I blinded you? Teddy Daniels: [Wryly] Give it a try. Warden: That’s the spirit! [He smiles]
Dr. John Cawley: [examines Rachel’s note] Ah, this is definitely Rachel’s handwriting. I have no idea… what the “Law of Four” is, though. Teddy Daniels: It’s not a psychiatric term? Dr. John Cawley: No, I’m afraid not. Chuck Aule: [reads the note] “Who is 67?” Fucked if I know. Dr. John Cawley: I have to say that’s quite close to my clinical conclusion.
Chuck Aule: You okay boss? Teddy Daniels: Yeah fine, I just ah, I just can’t, can’t stomach the water.
Dr. John Cawley: Why are you all wet, baby?
Teddy Daniels: I am a federal Marshall. They can’t stop me. Rachel 2: I was an esteemed psychiatrist from a respected family. Didn’t matter.
Chuck Aule: Nice music, who is that, Brahms? Teddy Daniels: [pauses] No. It’s Mahler.
George Noyce: She’s… fucking with your head!
Teddy Daniels: So this female prisoner… Dr. John Cawley: Patient. Teddy Daniels: Sorry… patient, one Rachel Solando, escaped sometime in the last 24 hours. Dr. John Cawley: Last night between ten and midnight. Chuck Aule: Is she considered dangerous? Dr. John Cawley: You could say that. She killed all three of her children.
George Noyce: Been alone much since you got here?
Dolores Chanal: [holding a liquor flask] I found a whole stack of these, Teddy. Jesus, are you ever sober any more? Teddy Daniels: I killed a lot of people in the war. Dolores Chanal: Is that why you drink?
Teddy Daniels: We are duly appointed Federal Marshals.
Plot: A pair of twins (Lukas and Elias Schwarz, going by their real first names) suspect an impostor underneath the facial bandages of a woman that’s supposed to be their mother (Wuest) after cosmetic facial surgery. The setting of a lakeside house is not only beautiful, but it also creates a sense of isolation and quietness that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The film is not without its flaws; particularly with how it handles its twists and turns—but just like some of the best lies have truth to them, some of the best twists have obvious to them. Even still, directors Fiala and Franz execute well enough to keep you engaged throughout, and do a pretty decent job of throwing you off track at random times, despite the film being guilty of trotting down the path of predictability. written by Randolph Perkins-Meeks
Lukas: What am I doing? Elias: What’s Lukas doing? Mutter: But I can’t see him.
In a small town in Massachusetts, a group of friends, fascinated by the Internet lore of the Slender Man, attempt to prove that he doesn’t actually exist – until one of them mysteriously goes missing.

The Devil’s Advocate (1997) Top Quotes and Trailer
Devil’s Advocate thematically raises the preposition that ‘is winning everything’ in the legal profession.Does a lawyer commits the basic sin of Vanity if he believes his job is to win, as Kevin does. Further the movie in John Milton’s trenchant speech questions the very notion of righteousness in the post-modern world. Milton’s speech rips apart the whole discourse of religion when he presents the inherent contradiction of it. Kevin’s dilemma reflects the modern man who accuses the circumstances for being what he is,the culture dominated by making money ‘which build egos of the size of cathedral’, the question is can one really call what one does ‘freely-willed’?. The movie deals with these ‘Hamltian questions’ in a lawyer’s mind.
Best Quotes from The Devil’s Advocate 1997
John Milton: Vanity, definitely my favorite sin.
Kevin Lomax: “Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven”, is that it? John Milton: Why not? I’m here on the ground with my nose in it since the whole thing began. I’ve nurtured every sensation man’s been inspired to have. I cared about what he wanted and I never judged him. Why? Because I never rejected him. In spite of all his imperfections, I’m a fan of man! I’m a humanist. Maybe the last humanist.
John Milton: Let me give you a little inside information about God. God likes to watch. He’s a prankster. Think about it. He gives man instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift, and then what does He do, I swear for His own amusement, his own private, cosmic gag reel, He sets the rules in opposition. It’s the goof of all time. Look but don’t touch. Touch, but don’t taste. Taste, don’t swallow. Ahaha. And while you’re jumpin’ from one foot to the next, what is he doing? He’s laughin’ His sick, fuckin’ ass off! He’s a tight-ass! He’s a SADIST! He’s an absentee landlord! Worship that? NEVER!
Kevin Lomax: What are you? John Milton: Oh, I have so many names… Kevin Lomax: Satan. John Milton: Call me Dad.
John Milton: Eddie Barzoon, Eddie Barzoon. Hah! Oh, I nursed him through two divorces, a cocaine rehab, and a pregnant receptionist. Heh. God’s creature, right? God’s special creature? Hah! And I’ve warned him Kevin, I’ve warned him every step of the way. Watching him bounce around like a fucking game, like a windup toy! Like 250 pounds of self serving greed on wheels. The next thousand years is right around the corner, Kevin, and Eddie Barzoon-take a good look, because he’s the poster child for the next millennium! These people, it’s no mystery where they come from. You sharpen the human appetite to the point where it can split atoms with its desire, you build egos the size of cathedrals, fiber-optically connect the world to every eager impulse, grease even the dullest dreams with these dollar-green, gold plated fantasies until every human becomes an aspiring emperor, becomes his own god, and where can you go from there? And as we’re scrambling from one deal to the next, who’s got his eye on the planet? As the air thickens, the water sours, and even the bees honey takes on the metallic taste of radioactivity. And it just keeps coming, faster and faster. There’s no chance to think, to prepare. It’s buy futures, sell futures, when there is no future! We got a runaway train boy, we got a billion Eddie Barzoons all jogging into the future. Every one of ’em getting ready to fist-fuck god’s ex-planet, lick their fingers clean as they reach out toward their pristine, cybernetic keyboards to total up their billable hours. And then it hits home! You gotta pay your own way, Eddie. It’s a little late in the game to buy out now! Your belly’s too full, your dick is sore, your eyes are bloodshot, and you’re screaming for someone to help! But guess what? There’s no one there! You’re all alone, Eddie. You’re god’s special little creature. Maybe it’s true, maybe god threw the dice once too often. Maybe he let us all down.
John Milton: Free will. It’s like butterfly wings: once touched, they never get off the ground. No, I only set the stage. You pull your own strings.
John Milton: Freedom, baby… is never having to say you’re sorry.
John Milton: Don’t get too cocky my boy. No matter how good you are don’t ever let them see you coming. That’s the gaffe my friend. You gotta keep yourself small. Innocuous. Be the little guy. You know, the nerd… the leper… shit-kickin’ surfer. Look at me. [stops and pauses] John Milton: Underestimated from day one. You’d never think I was a master of the universe, now would ya?
[In Milton’s Penthouse]
Kevin Lomax: [quietly] Is there more to it? Eddie Barzoon: Just this room. Kevin Lomax: And a bedroom? Eddie Barzoon: No bedroom. Kevin Lomax: Where does he sleep? Eddie Barzoon: Who said he sleeps? Kevin Lomax: Where does he fuck? John Milton: [coming up to them] Everywhere.
Kevin Lomax: What about love? John Milton: Overrated. Biochemically no different than eating large quantities of chocolate.
John Milton: Who, in their right mind Kevin, could possibly deny the twentieth century was entirely mine.
John Milton: What about you? Your family, you gotta miss ’em. [Mary Ann shakes her head no] John Milton: No? Mary Ann Lomax: I told Kevin the only thing worse than not having a father was having mine. John Milton: I can relate. I can, believe me.
John Milton: There’s this beautiful girl just fucked me forty ways from Sunday… we’re done, she’s walking to the bathroom, she’s trying to walk, she turns… she looks… it’s me. Not the Trojan army just fucked her. Little ol’ me. She has this look on her face like: “How the hell did that happen?”
John Milton: Guilt is like a bag of fuckin’ bricks. All ya gotta do is set it down.
John Milton: The worst vice is advice.
John Milton: You sharpen the human appetite to the point where it can split atoms with its desire; you build egos the size of cathedrals; fiber-optically connect the world to every eager impulse; grease even the dullest dreams with these dollar-green, gold-plated fantasies, until every human becomes an aspiring emperor, becomes his own God… and where can you go from there?
John Milton: A woman’s shoulders are the front lines of her mystique, and her neck, if she’s alive, has all the mystery of a border town. A no-man’s land in that battle between the mind and the body.
John Milton: Free will, it is a bitch.
Kevin Lomax: In the Bible you lose. We’re destined to lose dad. John Milton: Well consider the source son.
John Milton: Your vanity is justified, Kevin. Your seed, is the key to a new future. Your son is gonna sit at the head of all tables, my boy. He’s gonna set this hold thing free. Kevin Lomax: You want a child? John Milton: I want a family. Kevin Lomax: The Anti-Christ? John Milton: [laughing] Whatever…
John Milton: I’m the hand up Mona Lisa’s skirt. I’m a surprise, Kevin. They don’t see me coming: that’s what you’re missing.
Alice Lomax: Behold I send you out as sheep amidst the wolves.
John Milton: Lawyers are the devil’s ministry.
Kevin Lomax: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I know you’ve spent all morning listening to Mr. Broygo talk; I know you’re hungry; what I need to tell you won’t take very long at all. I don’t like Alexander Cullen. I don’t think he’s a nice person. I don’t expect you to like him. He’s been a terrible husband to all three of his wives; he’s been a destructive force in the lives of his stepchildren; he’s cheated the city, his partners, his employees. He’s paid hundreds of thousands of dollas in penalties and fines over the years. I don’t like him. I’m going to tell you some things during the course of this trial that are going to make you like him even less. But this isn’t a popularity contest; it’s a murder trial.
John Milton: So… have we been treating you well? Kevin Lomax: Very well, thank you. John Milton: And your wife? She had a good time? Kevin Lomax: She sure has, it’s been great. The whole thing’s been great. John Milton: That’s our secret. Kill you with kindness.
Mary Ann Lomax: Say I can handle it. Kevin Lomax: You can handle it. Mary Ann Lomax: Say something nice. Kevin Lomax: Something nice.
Kevin Lomax: Is this a test? Pam: Isn’t everything?
Alice Lomax: Let me tell you about New York. Kevin Lomax: Let me guess. Alice Lomax: Fallen, fallen, is Babylon the great. It has become a dwelling place of demons.” Revelation 18. Wouldn’t hurt you to look it over. Kevin Lomax: Couldn’t forget it if I tried. Alice Lomax: Oh, really? And what *happened* to Babylon?
John Milton: [chanting in Latin] Diaboli virtus in lumbis est. Diaboli virtus in lumbis est. [continues chant in English] John Milton: The virtue of the devil is in his loins.
John Milton: That day on the subway, what did I say to you? What were my words to you? Maybe it was your time to lose. You didn’t think so. Kevin Lomax: [raging] Lose? I don’t lose! I win! I win! I’m a lawyer! That’s my job, that’s what I do! John Milton: I rest my case.
Christabella Andreoli: Hey. In two minutes, you won’t be thinking about Mary Ann ever again. Come here. John Milton: She’s right, my son. [Milton lays a nuded Christabella on the altar] John Milton: It’s time to step up and take what’s yours. Kevin Lomax: You’re right. It’s time. Free will, right? [Chuckles, then shoots himself in the head] John Milton: [Screaming] No! NOOOOOOO! Christabella Andreoli: No!
John Milton: It’s your wife, man. She’s sick, she needs you… she’s got to come first. Ah, wait a minute, wait a minute. You mean the possibility of leaving this case has never even entered you mind? Kevin Lomax: You know what scares me? I quit the case, she gets better… and I hate her for it. I don’t want to resent her, John, I’ve got a winner here. I’ve got to nail this fucker down, do it fast, and put it behind me. Just get it done. Then – then. – put all my energy into her. John Milton: I stand corrected.
John Milton: Maricela, ¿su esposa? El momento que saliste del apartamento, ella estaba arriba con Carlos. Mira, amigo, están a la pipa fumando crack. Están en la cocina compartiendo un “jumbo”, y después, en tu misma cama, él se la va a meter por el culo. Y a ella le va a gustar, en tu cama verde especial. Big Guy #1: ¿Cómo? How the fuck you know? John Milton: Sal de mi vista y pon ese cuchillo donde merece. Enjoy yourself. You still got time. There’s a train coming the other way, you’ll just catch her. You’ll thank me in the morning. Big Guy #1: Hope you’re right, man. John Milton: Oh I’m right. You’ll see.
Kevin Lomax: Walter, as your lawyer I’m advising you to stay the fuck away from me.
Mrs. Jackie Heath: Look, you’ve got three choices – the Holy Trinity: you can work, you can play, or you can breed.
Kevin Lomax: God dammit, what did you do to my wife? John Milton: Well, on a scale of one to ten… ten being the most depraved act of sexual theatre know to man… one being your average Friday night run-through at the Lomaxes’ household… I’d say, not to be immodest, Mary Ann and I got it on at about… [counts on his fingers] John Milton: … seven.
John Milton: Law is the ultimate backstage pass. There are now more students in law schools than lawyers walking the streets.
Mary Ann Lomax: I told Kevin, the only thing worse than not having a father was having mine. John Milton: I can relate.
John Milton: Are we negotiating? Kevin Lomax: Always.
John Milton: And as we’re straddling from one deal to the next, who’s got his eye on the planet, as the air thickens, the water sours, and even the bees’ honey takes on the metallic taste of radioactivity? And it just keeps coming, faster and faster. There’s no chance to think, to prepare; it’s buy futures, sell futures, when there is no future.
Eddie Barzoon: Did you get my message? John Milton: Yeah Eddie, you write beautiful!
Mary Ann Lomax: I know we’ve got all this money, and it’s supposed to be OK, but it’s not.
John Milton: Now with this? Now that you’re down? I’d get ready for one of those, Class-A, New York-style pigfucks.
John Milton: [On the roof] What do you think? Some people can’t handle it Kevin Lomax: It’s peaceful John Milton: My sentiments exactly, fill in the resume for me, what does your father do? Kevin Lomax: I never got to know my father, he passed away before I was born my mother raised me just the two of us John Milton: That can’t be easy in a town like Gainesville can it? Kevin Lomax: I don’t think it’s easy anywhere John Milton: A little different when you looking down isn’t it? Kevin Lomax: Yes it is John Milton: Your mother, what’s she like? Kevin Lomax: She’s a preacher’s daughter she’s tough she’s worked at the same poultry as I can remember she’s got a church she really likes, she’s usually there or they go out and do a lot of volunteer work John Milton: Did it rub off? The book or the church? Kevin Lomax: No I’m on parole early release for time served John Milton: A lot of potential clients down there Kevin Lomax: why do you need a criminal department? John Milton: Our clients break the law like anyone else just tired of sending their business across the street Kevin Lomax: Are you offering me a job? John Milton: I’m thinking about it, I know you got talent, I knew that before you got here its just the other thing I wonder about: Pressure it changes everything some people you squeeze them, they focus others fold can you summon your talent at will? Can you deliver on a deadline? Can you sleep at night? Kevin Lomax: When do we talk about money? John Milton: Money? That’s the easy part
Eddie Barzoon: What’s up john? John Milton: How many hours did we bill Alex Cullen last year? Leamon Heath: Sixteen thousand two hundred forty two Eddie Barzoon: What the fuck did he do now?

Alexander Cullen: What the fuck was that about?
Alexander Cullen: You better be every fucking inch as good as he says you are.
Alexander Cullen: This ain’t no Beverly Cleary novel, you Goddamned son of a bitch.
Kevin Lomax: [Defense opening statement] Men kill animals and eat their flesh. Phillipe Moyez killed a goat and he did it at home in a manner consistent with his beliefs. It’s certainly not a religious practice performed by everyone, it’s not as common as circumcision, it’s not as common as the belief that wine transforms into blood, some people handle poisonous snakes to prove their faith, some people walk on fire. Phillipe Moyez killed a goat and he did it while observing his constitutionally protected beliefs. This case is not about keeping goats transporting goats or goat licensing, the city was clearly less concerned with the care of the animals than the manner in which they were slaughtered. The city timed this police action to catch my client exercising his constitutionally protected right to religious freedom.
John Milton: What can I say? Outstanding, go figure it a guy like Moyez living in some subterranean shithole. All the while he’s walking around with fifteen million dollars in the bank Kevin Lomax: You’re kidding John Milton: What do you think he’s paying us in? Goat’s blood? We’re billing you out at four hundred an hour I don’t see a lot of pro bono work in you immediate future that’s your only weakness as far as I can see What is that? It’s the look, that Florida stud thing: “Excuse me ma’am did I leave my boots under your bed?” Kevin Lomax: Never worked a jury that didn’t have a woman. John Milton: You know what you’re missing? You’re missing what I have.
[first lines] Florida Prosecutor: Go on, Barbara. Barbara: We go back to our homeroom for dismissal. Unless you have a pass for sports or somethin’. Florida Prosecutor: And is that what you did on the day in question? Barbara: No. Mr. Gettys asked me to stay after class.
Two men wake up at opposite sides of a dirty, disused bathroom, chained by their ankles to pipes. Between them lies a dead man loosely clutching a hand-held tape player and a handgun. Each finds a tape for the player in their back pocket. They play the tapes. One is threatened, the other isn’t. But they have a task: One must kill the other by 6:00, or his wife and daughter will die. They find hacksaws in a toilet, and try to cut the chains, but it doesn’t work. They are the two newest victims of the Jigsaw Killer. In a flashback, we learn of Amanda, a girl who falls victim to the Jigsaw Killer. On her head is a mask, which is hooked into her lower jaw. There is a timer on it. Only one key will unlock it, and that key is in the digestive tract of her cell mate who lies paralyzed on the opposite side of the room. If she doesn’t unlock the mask in time, her lower jaw will be ripped wide open. She survives, but her cell mate doesn’t. Through a series of flashbacks, we learn of more … Written by Aurabesh corrected by Paul P

Adam: I’m having a blast! This is the most fun I’ve had without lubricant!
John: [on videotape] Hello Amanda. You don’t know me, but I know you. I want to play a game. Here’s what happens if you lose. The device you are wearing is hooked into your upper and lower jaw. When the timer in the back goes off, your mouth will be permanently ripped open. Think of it like a reverse bear trap. Here, I’ll show you. There is only one key to open the device. It’s in the stomach of your dead cellmate. Look around Amanda. Know that I’m not lying. Better hurry up. Live or die, make your choice.
Dr. Lawrence Gordon: He doesn’t want us to cut through our chains. He wants us to cut through our feet!
Adam: My last girlfriend was a feminist, vegan punk who broke up with me because she thought I was too angry.
John: [on audio tape] Rise and shine, Adam. You’re probably wondering where you are. I’ll tell you where you might be. You might be in the room that you die in. Up until now, you’ve simply sat in the shadows watching others live out their lives. But what do voyeurs see when they look into the mirror? Now I see you as a strange mix of someone angry, yet apathetic. But mostly just pathetic. So are you going to watch yourself die here today, Adam, or do something about it? Adam: I don’t get it.
Adam: I don’t give a crap if you covered yourself in peanut butter and had a 15 hooker gang bang!
Zep Hindle: You’re too late. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Why? Zep Hindle: It’s the Rules.
Dr. Lawrence Gordon: I wouldn’t lie to you…
John: The key to that chain is in the bathtub.
Adam: Face it Larry, we’re both bullshiters. My camera, it doesn’t know how to lie. It only shows you what’s put right in front of it
Alison Gordon: How can you go through life pretending that you’re happy? Dr. Lawrence Gordon: I am happy. Alison Gordon: That is complete bullshit, I’d rather you break down and tell me that you hated me. At least there would be some passion in it.
John: Hello, Mr. Hindle. Or as they called you around the hospital: Zepp. I want you to make a choice. There’s a slow-acting poison coursing through your system, which only I have the antidote for. Will you murder a mother and her child to save yourself? Listen carefully, if you will. There are rules.
Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Fuck this shit!
Detective David Tapp: At least we’ll have the cover of darkness. Detective Steven Sing: So will anybody else.
[first lines] Adam: Help! Someone help me! Is someone there? Hey! Oh shit, I’m probably dead.
Adam: [as Lawrence is sawing off his foot] No! Oh, my God! What are you doing? Lawrence, what are you doing? What are you… Oh, my God! Lawrence, don’t! No! Lawrence, please! I’m begging you! Lawrence, it’s not me who did this to you. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: You have to die Adam: No, I want to live! Dr. Lawrence Gordon: I’m sorry… Adam: I want to live! Dr. Lawrence Gordon: My family… [shoots Adam] Dr. Lawrence Gordon: I’ve done it, now show them to me!
Adam: Do you see any scars? Dr. Lawrence Gordon: What? Adam: Huh? This is what they do man! They kidnap and drug you, before you know it you’re lying in a bathtub and your kidneys are on eBay! Dr. Lawrence Gordon: No one has taken your kidneys. Adam: Can you tell from way over there? Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Because you’d need to be in terrible agony or you’d be dead by now, trust me. Adam: What are you? A surgeon? Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Yeah.
John: Hello, Paul. You are a perfectly healthy, sane and middle-class male yet last month you ran a straight razor across your wrist. Did you cut yourself because you truly wanted to die or did you just want some attention? Tonight, you’ll show me. The irony is that if you want to die you just have to stay where you are, but if you want to live, you’ll have to cut yourself again. Find the path through the razor-wire to the door but hurry. At 3:00 that door will lock and then, this room becomes your tomb. How much blood will you shed to stay alive?
Detective David Tapp: [running after a suspect] I’m’a kill you, you sick asshole!
Adam: You want to know what I do? I’m paid to follow rich guys like you who go to seedy, out-of-the-way motels to fuck their secretaries.
John: Hello, Mark. If you are so sick then why do I have so many photos of you up and about? Let’s put your so called “illness” to the test. Right now, there’s a slow-acting poison in your veins. The antidote is inside the safe – the combination to the safe is written on the wall. Hurry up and program it in but watch your step. [Mark steps on one of the many pieces of broken glass scattered on the floor] John: By the way, that’s a flammable substance smeared on your body, so I would be careful with that candle if I were you… or all the people you’ve burned with your act just might have their revenge.
John: Dr. Gordon, this is your wake-up call. Everyday of your working life you have given people the news that they’re gonna die soon. Now *you* will be the cause of death. Your aim in this game is to kill Adam. You have until six on the clock to do it. There’s a man in the room with you. When there’s that much poison in your blood, the only thing left to do – is shoot yourself. There are ways to win this, hidden all around you. Just remember, X marks the spot for the treasure. If you do not kill Adam by six, then Alison and Diana will die, Dr. Gordon… and I’ll leave you in this room to rot. Let the game begin.
Adam: Look… we’re out of time!
Zep Hindle: I’m gonna kill your husband now, Mrs. Gordon!
Dr. Lawrence Gordon: That clock. It’s brand new. Adam: So? Dr. Lawrence Gordon: So someone obviously wanted us to know the time.

Detective David Tapp: Who said anything about a warrant?
Zep Hindle: Dr. Gordon’s time is up, now I gotta do what I gotta do and… I’m afraid it has to be you that tells him he’s failed. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: [in bathroom, cell phone ringing] Is that you, Zep, you bastard? I know it’s you, you son of a bitch! Alison Gordon: [back in Gordon household] Larry. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Ali?

Adam: Are they ok? Dr. Lawrence Gordon: My wife… , she, uh she mentioned your name. Adam: What did she say? Dr. Lawrence Gordon: She told me not to believe you. Adam: Believe me about what? Dr. Lawrence Gordon: She told me you knew me. Who are you? Adam: You know who I am. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Stop the lies! You’re a liar! I need to know the truth! Adam: I’m a liar? What did you do last night, Lawrence? Work at the hospital? Saving sick children? You told me last night, that after you left your house last night, you went to work at the hospital. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: That’s because it’s the truth. Adam: No, it’s not. Your wife was right, Larry. You don’t recall getting your picture taken in that parking lot? [cuts to the garage scene with Lawrence going to his car] Adam: I can prove you didn’t go anywhere near a hospital last night. he shows Larry the pictures from the tub. It’s not the first time I’ve done it either, Larry. I’ve been taking pictures of you for a few days now. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: But… why? Adam: You wanna know what I do? I get paid to take pictures of rich guys like you who go to seedy, out-of-the-way motels to fuck their secretaries
Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Okay, this patient has an inoperable frontal lobe tumor extending across the midline, started as colon cancer.

He’s a very interesting person. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Thank you for that information Zepp, as you can see our orderlies form very special bonds with the patients.
Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Who was it? Adam: Who was who? Dr. Lawrence Gordon: The person who paid you to photograph me who was it? Adam: He calls himself “Bob” and he gives me the money upfront. 200 bucks a night. If I had known I was gonna end up in here I would’ve asked for a hell of a lot more. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: What does that mean? Does that mean you saw what happened to me? Adam: What I saw was you get into your car, that’s it. I didn’t ask your name, I didn’t know who you were, I don’t know how I got here, I don’t know how you got here. I just took the shots and went straight home to develop them. Next thing I know I’m chained to a pipe in some prehistoric bathroom, staring at the guy I’ve been taking shots of all day. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Clearly whoever paid you to take pictures of me… is the one who put us here! Adam: Maybe. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: What do you mean “Maybe”? Of course it is. What did this guy look like? Adam: Well he’s just a guy. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Was he tall,dark,skinny,obese? Adam: I don’t take notes on his appearance! Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Clearly you must remember something about him. Adam: I can’t! Dr. Lawrence Gordon: You mean you’re telling me you can’t remember a thing about the guy! Adam: I told you I… Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Oh for fuck’s sake! I give up! Adam: He’s a tall black guy, he’s got a scar around his neck! Okay? Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Tapp, Detective Tapp. Adam: Whoa, guy who paid me to take these photos was not a cop. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: No no no, he was discharged from the police force, broked down after his partner got killed. That didn’t stop him from harassing me… he convinced himself that I must have somehow been involved with the murders and he’s crazy… and you helped him. You took money from him to invade my privacy… how could you do that? Adam: I call it my need to eat. Dr. Lawrence Gordon: Right, ya know what Adam? You are not a victim of this game, YOU’RE A PART OF IT.
Detective David Tapp: Right, Sing, right? We’re gonna close the scene!
Zep Hindle: Goodnight little girl.
Detective Steven Sing: Maybe you should find yourself a girlfriend.
James Bond hunts and kills a criminal kingpin in Mexico City. It was an unsanctioned kill and the repercussions are swift and dire – Bond is suspended and his movements tracked 24/7 via his blood. However, this won’t stop our intrepid hero – he is on the track of a massive criminal syndicate, an organisation whose name he does not know – all he has is a ring with its octopus-like symbol. It transpires that the secrets to the organisation lie with the daughter of a long-time enemy of his, and his own childhood.

C: Take a look at the world… chaos… because people like you, paper-pushers and politicians, are too spineless to do what needs to be done so I made an alliance to put the power where it should be, and now you want to throw it away for the sake of democracy, whatever the hell that is. How predictably moronic. [points gun at M] C: But then isn’t that what ‘M’ stands for… ‘moron’? [squeezes trigger, realizes the gun is unloaded] M: And now we know what ‘C’ stands for… ‘careless’.
Madeleine Swann: Why, given every other possible option, does a man choose the life of a paid assassin? James Bond: Well, it was that or the priesthood.

James Bond: I was in a meeting recently, and your name came up. Mr. White: I’m flattered London is still talking about me. James Bond: It wasn’t MI6… it was Rome. [reveals a Spectre ring]
Oberhauser: Welcome, James. It’s been a long time… and, finally, here we are. What took you so long?
Madeleine Swann: You shouldn’t stare. James Bond: Well, you shouldn’t look like that.
[at the clinic bar] Clinic Barman: Can I get you something, sir? James Bond: Vodka martini. Shaken, not stirred. Clinic Barman: I’m sorry, we don’t serve alcohol. James Bond: I’m already starting to love this place…
[Bond notices the shell of the DB5] Q: Oh, yes. That old thing is taking quite a bit of time. Mind you, there wasn’t much left to work, only a steering wheel. I believe I said, “Bring it back in one piece,” not, “Bring back one piece.” [Q laughs at his own joke]
Oberhauser: Do you know what it is? Madeleine Swann: It’s a meteorite. Oberhauser: Yes, exactly. The Kartenhoff, the oldest in human possession. The very meteorite which made this crater. Think about it: so many years up there, alone, silent, building momentum until it chose to make its mark on Earth. A huge unstoppable force. James Bond: Except it did stop, didn’t it? Right here.
Madeleine Swann: Is this really what you want? Living in the shadows? Hunting, being hunted? Always alone? James Bond: I don’t stop to think about it.
Oberhauser: You came across me so many times and yet you never saw me. Le Chiffre, Greene, Silva… James Bond: All dead. Oberhauser: That’s right. A nice pattern developed.

C: You can’t tell me an agent in the field can last long against all those drones and satellites. M: Yes, you have information. You can find out all about a man, track him down, keep an eye on him. But you have to look him in the eye. All the tech you have can’t help you with that. A license to kill also means a license NOT to kill.

[hands Bond effects from Skyfall] Eve Moneypenny: You’ve got a secret. Something you can’t tell anyone, because you don’t trust anyone.
Blofeld: Torture is easy, on a superficial level. A man can watch himself being disemboweled and derive great horror from the experience, but it’s still going on at a distance. It isn’t taking place where it is. As you know all too well, dear Madeleine, a man lives inside his head. That’s where the seed of his soul is. James and I were both present recently when a man was deprived of his eyes and the most astonishing thing happened, didn’t you notice? He wasn’t there anymore. He had gone even though he was still alive, so this brief moment between life and death, there was nobody inside his skull. Most odd.
Blofeld: You know what happens when a cuckoo hatches inside another bird’s nest? Madeleine Swann: Yes. It forces the other eggs out. Blofeld: Yes. Well, this cuckoo made me realize my father’s life had to end. In a way he’s responsible for the path I took… [to Bond] Blofeld: So thank you, cuckoo!
Blofeld: I’ve really put you through a lot, haven’t I? Well, that’s brothers for you: they always know which buttons to press.

James Bond: [over the phone] Who was that? Eve Moneypenny: He’s just a friend. James Bond: At this hour of the night? Eve Moneypenny: It’s called life, James. You should try it some time.
M: What’s that? Eve Moneypenny: [hiding a palmtop from James Bond] Just a gift. From an admirer. M: It’s not your birthday, is it? Eve Moneypenny: No. [M walks out the door] Eve Moneypenny: That was last week.
Madeleine Swann: [given a gun] What if I shoot you by mistake? James Bond: It wouldn’t be the first time.
Blofeld: The things that bring people together. Out of horror, beauty.
Madeleine Swann: I can’t go back to this life. And I’m not going to ask you to change, you are who you are. James Bond: You’re saying goodbye.

Clinic Barman: Here you are, sir. One prolytic digestive enzyme shake. James Bond: Do me a favor, will you? Throw that down the toilet. Cut out the middleman.
Blofeld: [about C] He’s a visionary, like me. James Bond: Visionaries… Psychiatric wards are full of them.
Q: Well it’s lovely to see you, 007. Lovely. Um, now I meant to tell you, the Smart Blood program is obviously still in its developmental phase. So we may experience the odd drop in coverage during the first 24 hours… [Bond glares at him] Q: 48 hours after administration, but after that it should work perfectly. [Bond smiles] James Bond: I’ll send you a postcard. Q: Please don’t.
Madeleine Swann: [referring to the windows] I hope you don’t mind, the view can be distracting. James Bond: [smiling at her] I hadn’t noticed.
Madeleine Swann: Do you exercise? James Bond: When I have to. Madeleine Swann: Do you consider your employment to be psychologically stressful? James Bond: Sometimes. Madeleine Swann: How much alcohol do you consume? James Bond: Too much.
Madeleine Swann: I see you left this final question blank. What is your occupation. James Bond: Well, that’s not the sort of thing that looks good on a form. Madeleine Swann: And why is that? James Bond: I kill people.
M: [videotape] James: if anything happens to me, I want you to find a man named Marco Scarra. Kill him, and don’t miss the funeral.
C: When are you going to realize you don’t matter anymore? M: Maybe not. But something has to.
C: [enters M’s office] So sorry, am I interrupting? M: Not remotely. 007, I’d like you to meet Max Denbigh, head of the Joint Security Service. C: Well it’s a pleasure to finally meet you, 007. I’ve heard a lot about you. Most of it good. James Bond: [offers hand] Congratulations on your new appointment. C: [shakes Bond’s hand] Thank you. James Bond: I suppose we should call you “C” now. C: No, no. “Max,” please. James Bond: No, I think I’ll call you “C”… C. C: As you wish. Well my door is always open, 007, for my employees. This merger’s gonna be a whole new chapter for us. We’re going to bring British intelligence out of the dark ages… into the light. James Bond: That all sounds lovely.
Oberhauser: [Bond is strapped to a torture chair with a drill attached] So James, I’m going to penetrate to where you are. To the inside of your head. Now the first probe will play with your sight, your hearing, and your balance, just with the subtlest of manipulations. James Bond: Well, get on with it then. Nothing can be as painful as listening to you talk. Oberhauser: All right, let’s begin. [activates the machine]

The Dark Knight Rises (2012) Trailer and Top Quotes
Review : Despite his tarnished reputation after the events of The Dark Knight, in which he took the rap for Dent’s crimes, Batman feels compelled to intervene to assist the city and its police force which is struggling to cope with Bane’s plans to destroy the city. Written by WellardRockard
Top The Dark Knight rises quotes
Jim Gordon: I never cared who you were… Batman: And you were right. Jim Gordon: …but shouldn’t the people know the hero who saved them? Batman: A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy’s shoulders to let him know that the world hadn’t ended. [takes off in the Bat] Jim Gordon: Bruce Wayne?
Jim Gordon: [reading from the book “A Tale of Two Cities” by Charles Dickens] I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss. I see the lives for which I lay down my life, peaceful, useful, prosperous and happy. I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts, and in the hearts of their descendants, generations hence. It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known.
Blind Prisoner: You do not fear death. You think this makes you strong. It makes you weak. Bruce Wayne: Why? Blind Prisoner: How can you move faster than possible, fight longer than possible without the most powerful impulse of the spirit: the fear of death. Bruce Wayne: I do fear death. I fear dying in here, while my city burns, and there’s no one there to save it. Blind Prisoner: Then make the climb. Bruce Wayne: How? Blind Prisoner: As the child did. Without the rope. Then fear will find you again.
Bane: Theatricality and deception are powerful agents to the uninitiated… but we are initiated, aren’t we Bruce? Members of the League of Shadows! [Lifts Batman by the neck] Bane: And you betrayed us! Batman: You were excommunicated… by a gang of psychopaths! [Bane viciously beats Batman and throws him to the ground] Bane: I AM the League of Shadows, and I’m here to fulfill Ra’s al Ghul’s destiny! Bane: You fight like a younger man, with nothing held back. Admirable but mistaken. [Batman uses an EMP device to cut the lights] Bane: Oh, you think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but BLINDING! [grabs Batman from the shadows and continues to beat him] Bane: The shadows betray you, because they belong to me! [repeatedly punches Batman in the face, breaking his cowl] Bane: I will show you where I have made my home while preparing to bring justice. Then I will break you. [hits detonator, blowing a hole into the bottom of Wayne Enterprise] Bane: Your precious armory, gratefully accepted! We will need it. [Batman desperately stands and swings at Bane] Bane: Ah, yes… I was wondering what would break first… [lifts Batman high] Bane: Your spirit, or your body? [slams him on his knee]
Bruce Wayne: Why didn’t you just… kill me? Bane: You don’t fear death… You welcome it. Your punishment must be more severe. Bruce Wayne: Torture? Bane: Yes. But not of your body… Of your soul. Bruce Wayne: Where am I? Bane: Home, where I leanred the truth about despair, as will you. There’s a reason why this prison is the worst hell on earth… Hope. Every man who has ventured here over the centuries has looked up to the light and imagined climbing to freedom. So easy… So simple… And like shipwrecked men turning to sea water from uncontrollable thirst, many have died trying. I learned here that there can be no true despair without hope. So, as I terrorize Gotham, I will feed its people hope to poison their souls. I will let them believe they can survive so that you can watch them clamoring over each other to “stay in the sun.” You can watch me torture an entire city and when you have truly understood the depth of your failure, we will fulfill Ra’s al Ghul’s destiny… We will destroy Gotham and then, when it is done and Gotham is ashes, then you have my permission to die
CIA Agent: [to three prisoners] The flight plan I just filed with the agency lists me, my men, Dr. Pavel here but only one of you! First one to talk gets to stay on my aircraft! [grabs a hood] CIA Agent: Who paid you to grab Dr. Pavel? [No answer, the agent fires his gun away from the prisoner’s head] CIA Agent: He didn’t fly so good! [pulls the hood back into the plane] CIA Agent: Who wants to try next? [grabs another prisoner] CIA Agent: Tell me about Bane! Why does he wear the mask? A lot of loyalty, for a hired gun! Bane: Or perhaps he’s wondering why someone would shoot a man, before throwing him out of a plane? CIA Agent: At least you can talk. Who are you? Bane: It doesn’t matter who we are, what matters is our plan. [the Agent removes the hood] Bane: No one cared who I was until I put on the mask. CIA Agent: If I pull that off, would you die? Bane: It would be extremely painful. CIA Agent: You’re a big guy! Bane: For you. CIA Agent: Was getting caught part of your plan? Bane: Of course… Dr. Pavel refused our offer in favor of yours, we had to find out what he told you. Dr. Pavel: Nothing! I said nothing! CIA Agent: Well, congratulations! You got yourself caught! Now what’s the next step in your master plan? Bane: Crashing this plane… with no survivors!
Bane: [to Batman] Peace has cost you your strength! Victory has defeated you!
Selina Kyle: There’s a storm coming, Mr. Wayne. You and your friends better batten down the hatches, because when it hits, you’re all gonna wonder how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us. Bruce Wayne: You sound like you’re looking forward to it. Selina Kyle: I’m adaptable.
Catwoman: My mother warned me about getting into cars with strange men. Batman: This isn’t a car.
[In the pit] Crowd: [chanting] Deshi basara! Deshi basara! Bruce Wayne: What does that mean? Prisoner: Rise.
Bane: [addressing media reporters outside the prison] Behind you is a symbol of oppression. Blackgate Prison, where a thousand men have languished under the name of this man, [holds up a picture of Harvey Dent] Bane: Harvey Dent, who has been held up to you as the shining example of justice! John Blake: [to Gordon, at Blake’s apartment] Commissioner, we need to keep you moving until we can get you in front of a camera. Bane: You have been supplied with a false idol to stop you from tearing down this CORRUPT CITY! Let me tell you the truth about Harvey Dent from the words of Gotham’s police commissioner, James Gordon. [holds up Gordon’s speech papers and begins to read] Bane: “The Batman didn’t murder Harvey Dent, he saved my boy then took the blame for Harvey’s appalling crimes so that I could, to my shame, build a lie around this fallen idol. I praised the mad man who tried to murder my own child but I can no longer live with my lie. It is time to trust the people of Gotham with the truth and it is time for me to resign.” [calls to prisoners] Bane: And do you accept this man’s resignation? Do you accept the resignation of all these liars? Of all the CORRUPT? [prisoners roar with approval] John Blake: Those men locked up for eight years in Blackgate, and denied parole under the Dent Act, based on a lie? Jim Gordon: Gotham needed a hero… John Blake: It needs it now more than ever. You betrayed everything you stood for. Jim Gordon: There’s a point, far out there when the structures fail you, and the rules aren’t weapons anymore, they’re… shackles letting the bad guy get ahead. One day… you may face such a moment of crisis. And in that moment, I hope you have a friend like I did, to plunge their hands into the filth so that you can keep yours clean! John Blake: [disgusted] Your hands look plenty filthy to me, Commissioner.
[Bane wrecks the CIA plane and grabs Dr Pavel]
Bane: Calm down, Doctor! Now’s not the time for fear. That comes later.
Bruce Wayne: I watched you die. Ra’s al Ghul: I told you I was immortal.
Catwoman: I blow that tunnel open, I’m gone. Batman: There’s more to you than that. Catwoman: Sorry I keep letting you down. [pause] Catwoman: Come with me. Save yourself. You don’t owe these people any more. You’ve given them everything. Batman: Not everything. Not yet.
Bruce Wayne: Must’ve lost my ticket. Valet Attendant: Your wife said you were taking a cab home. Bruce Wayne: My wife?
Bane: We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you… the people. Gotham is yours. None shall interfere. Do as you please. Start by storming Blackgate, and freeing the oppressed! Step forward those who would serve. For and army will be raised. The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests, and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. Courts will be convened. Spoils will be enjoyed. Blood will be shed. The police will survive, as they learn to serve true justice. This great city… it will endure. Gotham will survive!
John Daggett: What. The hell. Is going on? Bane: Our plan is proceeding as expected. John Daggett: Oh really? Do *I* look like I’m running Wayne Enterprises right now? Your hit, on the stock exchange, it didn’t work, my friend! And now you have my construction crews going around the city at 24 hours a day! How exactly is that supposed to help my company absorb Wayne’s? Bane: [to Stryver] Leave us! John Daggett: No! You stay here, I’m in charge! Bane: [puts his hand on Daggett’s shoulder] Do you *feel* in charge? [Stryver leaves] John Daggett: I paid you a small fortune. Bane: And this gives you *power* over me? John Daggett: What is this? Bane: Your money and infrastructure have been important… ’til now! John Daggett: What are you? Bane: I’m Gotham’s reckoning. Here to end the borrowed time you’ve all been living on! John Daggett: You’re pure evil! Bane: I’m *necessary* evil! [breaks Daggett’s neck; Stryver flinches]
Bane: Speak of the devil and he shall appear.
[Batman and Selina have just escaped from Bane and his mercenaries in the Bat. Batman lands it on top of a skyscraper and Selina immediately hops out] Catwoman: See you around. Batman: You’re welcome. Catwoman: I had it under control. Batman: Those weren’t street thugs, they were trained killers. I saved your life. In return I need to know what you did with Bruce Wayne’s fingerprints. Catwoman: Wayne wasn’t kidding about a “powerful friend”. [beat] Catwoman: I sold his prints to Daggett. For something that doesn’t even exist. Batman: I doubt many people get the better of you. Catwoman: Hey, when a girl’s desperate. Batman: What’s he gonna to do with them? Catwoman: I don’t know. But Daggett seemed pretty interested in that mess at the stock market. [Batman is distracted by the spotlight of a police chopper doing the rounds. He looks up at it, then turns back to Selina] Batman: Miss Kyle? [Catwoman has vanished] Batman: So that’s what that feels like…
Lucius Fox: This conversation used to end with an unusual request. Bruce Wayne: I’m retired. Lucius Fox: Well let me show you some stuff anyway. Just for old time’s sake.
John Blake: Bane? What do you know about him? Selina Kyle: That you should be as afraid of him as I am.
Lucius Fox: It has a long uninteresting name. I just took to calling it… The Bat, and yes, Mr. Wayne, it does come in black.
Catwoman: I had no choice. I needed a way to keep them from killing me. Batman: You just made a serious mistake. Bane: Not as serious as yours, I fear… Batman: Bane Bane: Let us not stand on ceremony, Mr. Wayne. [Catwoman appears shocked]
Bane: I broke you. How have you come back? Batman: You think you’re the only one who can find the strength to escape? Where’s the trigger? Bane: But I never escaped. Batman: But the child… the child of Ra’s al Ghul made the climb. Miranda Tate: [from behind Batman] But he’s not the child of Ra’s al Ghul[She stabs Batman with a knife. He reels in pain and shock] Miranda Tate: I am. And though I’m not ordinary, I am a citizen. [She reveals the trigger] Batman: [anguished] Miranda… why? Miranda Tate: Talia. My mother named me Talia before she was killed, the way I would’ve been killed if not for my protector: Bane.
Bane: [Listening to the national anthem before the Gotham football game] What a lovely, lovely voice. [Song ends and football game begins] Bane: Let the games begin! [hits detonator and bombs go off across Gotham]
Batman: Tell me where the trigger is. Then… you have my permission to die!
John Blake: I just can’t take it. I mean, nobody will ever know who it was who saved an entire city. Jim Gordon: They know who it was; it was the Batman.
John Blake: You made some mistakes, Miss Kyle. Selina Kyle: A girl’s gotta eat. John Blake: Well, you got quite an appetite.
Doctor: I’ve seen worse cartilage in knees. Bruce Wayne: That’s good. Doctor: No, that’s because there is NO cartilage in your knee, and not much of any use in your elbows or your shoulders. Between that and the scar tissue on your kidneys, the residual concussive damage to your brain tissue, and the general scarred-over quality of your body, I cannot recommend that you go heliskiing, Mr. Wayne Bruce Wayne: Right.
[a couple thugs go to attack Lucius while he’s handcuffed. Catwoman intervenes and beats them down] Lucius Fox: [to Batman] I like your new girlfriend! Catwoman: [she undoes his cuffs] He should be so lucky.
Catwoman: You could have gone anywhere, but you came back. Batman: So did you. Catwoman: Well then I guess we’re both suckers. [she kisses him]
Hooded Man #2: Have we started the fire? Bane: Yes. The fire rises.
Sewer Thug #1: [Sewer thugs have captured Jim Gordon, who is barely conscious] It’s the police commissioner. Bane: And you brought him down here? Sewer Thug #1: We didn’t know what to do. Bane: You panicked, and your weakness has cost the lives of three others. Sewer Thug #1: No he’s alone… [Bane grabs the thug and crush his throat, he drops dead to the ground] Bane: [to the second thug] Search him, then I will kill you. [Jim Gordon throws himself over the balcony into the running sewer water, the thugs shoot at him] Sewer Thug #2: He’s dead. Bane: So show me his body. Sewer Thug #2: The water runs to any one of the outflows. We’ll never find him. Bane: [Bane puts a GPS in the thugs pocket] Follow him! Sewer Thug #2: Follow him? [Bane shoots the sewer thug]
Bane: We both know that I now have to kill you. You’ll just have to imagine the fire!
John Blake: [to Bruce Wayne] I don’t know why you took the fall for Dent’s murder, but I’m still a believer in the Batman.
Bruce Wayne: Mind if I cut in? [the old man who was dancing with Selina leaves, annoyed, as Bruce starts dancing slowly with her] Bruce Wayne: Oh, you don’t seem happy to see me. Selina Kyle: You were supposed to be a shut-in. Bruce Wayne: I felt like some fresh air. Selina Kyle: Why didn’t you call the police? Bruce Wayne: I have a powerful friend who deals with things like this. [notices the cat ears that are Selina’s goggle lenses] Bruce Wayne: That’s a brazen costume for a cat burglar. Selina Kyle: Yeah? Who are you pretending to be? Bruce Wayne: Bruce Wayne, eccentric billionaire. Who’s your date? [referring the old man she was dancing with and who is now watching them] Selina Kyle: His wife’s in Ibiza. She left her diamonds behind, though. Worried they might get stolen. Bruce Wayne: Mm. It’s pronounced Ibeetha. You wouldn’t want any of these folks realizing you’re a crook, not a social climber. Selina Kyle: You think I care what anyone in this room thinks of me? Bruce Wayne: I doubt you care what anyone in any room thinks of you. Selina Kyle: Don’t condescend, Mr. Wayne. You don’t know a thing about me. Bruce Wayne: Well, Selina Kyle, I know you came here from your walk-up in Old Town, a modest place for a master jewel thief. Which means that either you’re saving for retirement, or you’re in deep with the wrong people. Selina Kyle: You don’t get to judge me just because you were born in the master bedroom of Wayne Manor. Bruce Wayne: Actually, I was born in the Regency Room. Selina Kyle: I started out doing what I had to. Once you’ve done what you had to, they’ll never let you do what you want to. Bruce Wayne: Start fresh. Selina Kyle: There’s no fresh start in today’s world. Any twelve-year-old with a cell phone could find out what you did. Everything we do is collated and quantified. Everything sticks. Bruce Wayne: Is that how you justify stealing? Selina Kyle: I take what I need to from those who have more than enough. I don’t stand on the shoulders of people with less. Bruce Wayne: Robin Hood? Selina Kyle: I think I do more to help someone than most of the people in this room. Than you. Bruce Wayne: I think maybe you’re assuming a little too much. Selina Kyle: Maybe you’re being unrealistic about what’s really in your pants other than your wallet. Bruce Wayne: Ouch.
[Bruce, wearing a ski mask, visits Gordon’s hospital room] Jim Gordon: [lying in a hospital bed] We were in this together, and then you were gone. Bruce Wayne: The Batman wasn’t needed anymore. We won. Jim Gordon: Based on a lie. Now this evil… rises from where we tried to bury it. The Batman has to come back. Bruce Wayne: What if he doesn’t exist any more? Jim Gordon: He must… he must…
[after imploding the football field, Bane and his mercenaries appear, and Bane picks up a microphone off one of the coaches] Bane: Gotham, take control! Take control of your city. This… this is the instrument of your liberation! [His mercenaries bring Dr. Pavel forward and make him kneel in front of Bane] Bane: Identify yourself to the world. [holds microphone in front of Dr. Pavel, as if he is conducting a news interview] Dr. Pavel: Dr. Leonid Pavel, nuclear physicist. Bane: And what… what is this? Dr. Pavel: It’s a… fully primed neutron bomb, with a blast radius of six miles. Bane: And who is capable of disarming such a device? Dr. Pavel: Only me. Bane: Only you. Thank you, doctor. [snaps Dr. Pavel’s neck. The crowd screams in terror] Bane: Now, this bomb is armed! This bomb is mobile! And the identity of the triggerman is a mystery. For one of you holds the detonator! And we came here not as conquerors, but as liberators to return control of this city to the people. And at the first sign of interference from the outside world, or for those people attempting to flee, this anonymous Gothamite – this unsung hero – will trigger the bomb. For now, martial law is in effect. Return to your homes, hold your families close, and wait. Tomorrow you claim what is rightfully yours. [Bane drops the mike, turns, and leaves the playing field]
John Blake: When I spotted you, I was looking for a friend of mine, Bruce Wayne. Did they kill him? Selina Kyle: I’m not sure.
Ra’s al Ghul: You, yourself fought the decadence of Gotham for years with all your strength, all your resources, all your moral authority and the only victory you achieved was a lie. Now you understand Gotham is beyond saving and must be allowed to die.
Batman: [Hands over device] This blocks the remote detonator signal to the bomb. Get it onto it before sunrise. They might hit the button when it starts. Jim Gordon: When what starts? Batman: War.
Gangbanger: [Two street thugs catch a little boy that has stolen an apple from them] You steal from us, you little bastard? [Selina appears and twists his arm from behind] Selina Kyle: You boys know you can’t come into my neighborhood without asking politely. [She cracks his arm, knocking the apple into her hand. The boy watches as she knocks both thugs out] Selina Kyle: Never steal anything from someone you can’t outrun, kid. [takes a bite out of the apple, and tosses it to the kid, who takes it and runs off] Bruce Wayne: Pretty generous, for a thief. [Selina turns to see Bruce approaching] Selina Kyle: I thought they killed you. Bruce Wayne: Not yet. Selina Kyle: If you’re expecting an apology… Bruce Wayne: It wouldn’t suit you.
Phillip Stryver: Do those heels make it hard to walk? [Catwoman kicks Stryver from behind] Catwoman: I don’t know, do they?
Captain Jones: I’ll die before I talk. Bane: I’m on your schedule, captain. [Bane crushes Jones’ windpipe]
John Daggett: Can we get some ladies in here? Catwoman: Careful what you wish for. [Catwoman attacks Daggett and pins him up against the wall] Catwoman: What’s the matter, Cat got your tongue? John Daggett: You dumb bitch. Catwoman: Nobody ever accused me of being dumb! John Daggett: You’re dumb; for coming here. Catwoman: I want what you owe me!
[Blake captures Selina at the airport] John Blake: I showed your picture to the Congressman. Guess what? Selina Kyle: Don’t tell me, still in love? John Blake: Oh, head over heels. Pressing charges, though.
Deputy Commissioner Peter Foley: I’m not risking my men for your money. Exchange Security Chief: It’s not our money, it’s everybody’s! Allen: Really? Mine’s in my mattress.
Jim Gordon: [Gordon and his men have been brought into Crane’s kangaroo court] No lawyer, no witnesses? What sort of due process is this? Dr. Jonathan Crane: Your guilt has been determined. This is merely a sentencing hearing. Now, what will it be? Death or Exile? Jim Gordon: Crane, if you think we’re going to walk out on that ice willingly, you got another thing coming! Dr. Jonathan Crane: So it’s death then? Jim Gordon: Looks that way. Dr. Jonathan Crane: Very well. Death! [smashes gavel] Dr. Jonathan Crane: By exile!
[from trailer] Alfred: Don’t worry, Master Wayne. It takes a little time to get back into the swing of things.
Catwoman: [holding a gun to Daggett’s head as Bane’s henchmen approach her] Stay back! [Bane’s men continue to approach] Catwoman: I’m not bluffing! Batman: They know! They just don’t care. [Catwoman and Batman promptly attack the henchmen]
Selina Kyle: Look, you wouldn’t beat up a woman any more than I would beat up a cripple. [she kicks Bruce’s cane and he falls] Selina Kyle: Of course, sometimes exceptions have to be made.
Bane: So, you came back to die with your city. Batman: No. I came back to stop you. [begin fighting]
Thomas Wayne: Bruce, why do we fall?
[from trailer] Alfred: You are as precious to me as you were to your own mother and father. I swore to them that I would protect you, and I haven’t.
Catwoman: [Batman kicks a gun out of Catwoman’s hand] You’ve gotta be kidding me! Batman: No guns, no killing. Catwoman: Where’s the fun in that?
Bruce Wayne: I’m not afraid. I’m angry.
[from trailer] Bruce Wayne: [to Lucius Fox] I need you to get me back in the game.
Miranda Tate: Suffering builds character.
Catwoman: About the whole no guns thing… I’m not sure I feel as strongly about it as you do.
[Bruce makes the climb] Blind Prisoner: Deshi basara! Deshi basara!
Jim Gordon: Can I change your mind about quitting the force? John Blake: You were right, about the structures becoming shackles.
[first lines] Jim Gordon: I knew Harvey Dent. I was his friend. And it will be a very long time before someone… inspires us the way he did. I believed in Harvey Dent.
Selina Kyle: [the Congressman has just been shot in the leg] Keep some pressure on that, darling. Congressman: Call me.
[Blake arrives at the Broucek Cement Company plant; as a worker leads him through the yard, Blake spots a worker that he immediately recognizes as the cement truck driver he spoke to during the Gotham Stock Exchange robbery] John Blake: Hey! Hey! [the driver turns] John Blake: That was you in front of the Stock Exchange, wasn’t it? Cement Truck Driver: When? John Blake: “When?” When half the city’s cops were trying to pull onto Castle Street and your truck shut them out. Cement Truck Driver: Oh yeah. You’re that cop. John Blake: Detective, now. And uh… as a detective, we’re not allowed to believe in coincidences. [the worker behind Blake promptly swings at him with a knife. Blake smashes his hand, pulls his sidearm out and shoots him. The driver then grabs Blake from behind. As Blake struggles with the driver, he aims his pistol, and fires into the cement mixer. The bullet ricochets and hits the the driver in the back] John Blake: [furious] What are you doing here? What are you working on? [the driver dies. Blake looks at his pistol, and tosses it away, disgusted. He calls Gordon on his cell phone] John Blake: Commissioner, it’s Blake. I got two dead witnesses and a lot of questions. Call me when… [Blake freezes as he notices some barrels] John Blake: Wait a minute. There are four barrels of Polyisobutylene. That looks like motor oil right next to it. Jesus! They’re not making cement, they’re making explosives!
[Bruce straps braces onto his leg, grimacing with pain] Alfred Pennyworth: Is it really painful? Bruce Wayne: Well, you’re welcome to try it, Alfred. Alfred Pennyworth: Happy watching, thank you, sir.
Bane: Why are you here? Sewer Thug #1: [to Gordon] Answer him! Bane: [to thug] I was asking you.
[Bruce arrives at a charity ball, and sits at the bar as he watches Selina dancing with an old man] Miranda Tate: Bruce Wayne at a charity ball? [Bruce turns to see Miranda wearing a small mask] Bruce Wayne: Miss Tate, isn’t it? [Miranda takes off her mask] Miranda Tate: Even before you became a recluse, you never came to these things. Bruce Wayne: Proceeds go to the big fat spread. It’s not about charity, it’s about feeding the ego of whichever society hag laid this on. Miranda Tate: Actually, this is my party, Mr. Wayne. Bruce Wayne: Oh. Miranda Tate: And the proceeds will go where they should, because I paid for the big fat spread myself. Bruce Wayne: That’s very generous of you. Miranda Tate: You have to invest to restore balance to the world. Take our clean-energy project. Bruce Wayne: Sometimes the investment doesn’t pay off. I’m sorry. Miranda Tate: You have a practiced apathy, Mr. Wayne. But a man who doesn’t care about the world doesn’t spend half his fortune on a plan to save it. And isn’t so wounded when it fails that he goes into hiding. Have a good evening, Mr. Wayne. [Miranda turns and walks off, and Bruce approaches Selina]
Veteran Cop: [to his partner, upon witnessing Batman’s return] Oh, boy, you are in for a show tonight, son.
Selina Kyle: [She enters the Congressman’s car] Can I have a ride? Congressman: You read my mind.
[Two traders are getting their shoes shined] Trader #2: You can’t short the stock because Bruce Wayne goes to a party. Trader #1: Wayne coming back is change. Change is either good or bad. I pick bad. Trader #2: On what basis? Trader #1: I flipped a coin. [They leave, at which point the man shining their shoes reaches into his gym bag and pulls out a submachine gun]
[Fox and Miranda come off the elevator at Wayne Enterprises, heading for a board meeting] Lucius Fox: I still don’t see the need for a board meeting for the energy project. Miranda Tate: Bruce got a lot of things right. Keeping the board in the dark wasn’t one of them. [They enter the boardroom, and find Bane and several of his henchmen standing at the head of the table, holding the board members hostage with assault rifles. Bane turns to the newcomers] Bane: How good of you to join us, Chair, President. All I need now is one more one ordinary member. Mr. Fox, would you like to nominate? [Fox starts to speak, but Fredericks interrupts and stands] Fredericks: No. I will volunteer. Lucius Fox: Where are you taking us? [Bane doesn’t reply and he starts walking off]
[Stryver is dragged to his kangaroo court trial] Phillip Stryver: There’s been a mistake! Take… take me to Bane! I wanna see Bane! [He is brought before the makeshift court and forced to sit in a chair] Phillip Stryver: Where is Bane? Dr. Jonathan Crane: There’s been no mistake, Mr. Stryver. [Stryver looks up at Dr. Crane] Dr. Jonathan Crane: You are Philip Stryver, executive vice-president of Daggett Industries? Who for years has been living off the blood and sweat of people less powerful than him? Phillip Stryver: Call Bane. I’m… I am one of you! [Bane is watching from the background] Dr. Jonathan Crane: Bane has no authority here. This is merely a sentencing hearing. Now, the choice is yours. Exile or death! [the crowd starts chanting “DEATH!”] Dr. Jonathan Crane: [smashes his gavel] Quiet! Phillip Stryver: Ex… exile. Dr. Jonathan Crane: Sold! [smashes gavel] Dr. Jonathan Crane: To the man in the cold sweat! [Stryver is dragged away and taken to the frozen shores beneath the Brooklyn Bridge, where mercenaries force him at gunpoint onto the ice] Huge Inmate: Follow the thick ice. Try to swim – you’re dead in minutes. Phillip Stryver: Has anyone made it? [the inmate turns away. Stryver walks over the ice. Partway across, the ice cracks under his weight, he falls into the freezing water, and drowns]
Bane: Hang them where the world can see.
Foley: [preparing to charge Bane’s army with the Gotham Police Department] There’s only one police in this town.
[Talia’s bomb has failed to detonate] Batman: Maybee your knife… was too slow. Mercenary: [entering] The truck is under attack. Talia al Ghul: Gordon. You gave him a way to block my signal. No matter. [she viciously pulls the knife out of Batman, making him groan in pain] Talia al Ghul: He’s bought Gotham eleven minutes.
Selina Kyle: I don’t know what you’re planning to do with Mr. Wayne’s prints, but I’m guessing you’ll need his thumb. You don’t count so good, huh?
Lucius Fox: [as Batman flies The Bat] Nothing like a little air superiority, isn’t it?
Jim Gordon: We could use some hotter heads around here.
Phillip Stryver: Bane says the Batman interfered, but the task was accomplished. John Daggett: And what about the men they arrested? Phillip Stryver: He said, and I quote; they would die before talking. John Daggett: Where does he find these guys?
Trader #1: This is a stock exchange. There’s no money you can steal. Bane: Really? Then why are you people here?
[Bane, dressed as a motorcycle courier, walks into the stock exchange and sets off the metal detector. A female security guard stops him] Female Security Guard: Rookie! Lose the helmet. We need faces for cameras. Come on. [Bane takes off his helmet, then smacks her with it and expertly disarms the other guards]
[Fox takes Miranda to a recycling plant] Miranda Tate: You brought me out here to show me this, Mr. Fox? Lucius Fox: Bear with me, Miss Tate. [leads her inside a portakabin] Lucius Fox: Please keep hands and feet inside the car at all times. [presses a button. The office floor descends like an elevator down a shaft] Miranda Tate: This is it, isn’t it? Lucius Fox: The reactor is beneath the river so it could be instantly flooded in the event of a security breach. Miranda Tate: Is Bruce Wayne really that paranoid? Lucius Fox: I’m gonna plead the fifth on that one. [When the elevator office stops, they find Bruce waiting in the reactor chamber] Bruce Wayne: I thought you might like to see what your investment built. Miranda Tate: No fossil fuels. Free, clean energy for an entire city. Three years ago, a Russian scientist published a paper on weaponized fusion reactions. One week later your reactor started developing problems. I think this machine works. Bruce Wayne: Miranda, if it were operational, the danger to Gotham would be too great. Miranda Tate: Would it make you feel better to know that the Russian scientist died in a plane crash six months ago? Bruce Wayne: Someone will work out what Dr. Pavel did. Someone will figure out a way to make this power source into a nuclear weapon. I need you to take control of Wayne Enterprises and this reactor. Miranda Tate: To do what with it? Bruce Wayne: Nothing. Until we can guarantee its safety. Miranda Tate: And if we can’t? Bruce Wayne: Decommission it and flood it. Miranda Tate: Destroy the world’s best chance for a sustainable future? Bruce Wayne: If the world’s not ready, yes. Miranda Tate: Bruce, if you want to save the world you have to start trusting it. Bruce Wayne: I’m trusting you. Miranda Tate: Doesn’t count. You have no choice. Bruce Wayne: I could have flooded this chamber any time in the last three years. I’m choosing to trust you. Please.
Army Captain at Bridge: Now, why the hell would I try to help you keep your hostages? Barsad: If one person crosses this bridge… Gotham gets blown to hell.
[Uzbekistani Army soldiers carrying Dr. Pavel greet a CIA agent and several Special Ops soldiers] CIA Agent: Dr. Pavel, I’m CIA. [shakes hands with Dr. Pavel] Barsad: He wasn’t alone. [motions to three hooded prisoners he has brought alone] CIA Agent: Uh… you don’t get to bring friends. Dr. Pavel: They are not my friends. Barsad: Don’t worry, no charge for them. CIA Agent: And why would I want them? Barsad: They were trying to grab your prize. They work for the mercenary. The masked man… CIA Agent: Bane? [the driver nods] CIA Agent: Get him on board, I’ll call it in.
Bruce Wayne: This city needs me.
Lucius Fox: Remember where you parked? [Bruce nods]
[Blake finds Gordon on the police station roof next to the broken Bat-signal] John Blake: Sir, Congressman Gilly’s wife has been calling in. Apparently the Congressman never made it home after the Wayne Foundation event. Jim Gordon: That’s a job for the police. John Blake: When you and Dent cleaned up the streets, you cleaned them good. Pretty soon we’ll be chasing down uh… overdue library books. And yet, here you are, like we’re still at war. Jim Gordon: What’s your name, son? John Blake: Blake, sir. Jim Gordon: You got something you wanna ask me, Officer Blake? John Blake: It’s about that night, this night, eight years ago. The night Dent died, the last confirmed sighting of the Batman. He murders those people, takes down two SWAT teams, breaks Dent’s neck and then just… vanishes? Jim Gordon: I’m not hearing a question, son. John Blake: Don’t you wanna know who he was? [Gordon looks at the broken Bat -Signal for a moment] Jim Gordon: I know exactly who he was. He was the Batman. [starts walking] Jim Gordon: Let’s go see about the Congressman’s wife.
Selina Kyle: Shrimp balls?
[watching video of Bane taking out the stock exchange security] Alfred: That is a man who fights with the power of belief.
Spoilers The quote items below may give away important plot points. Alfred: I’ll get this to Mr. Fox, but no more. I’ve sewn you up, I’ve set your bones, but I won’t bury you. I’ve buried enough members of the Wayne family. Bruce Wayne: You’ll leave me? Alfred: You see only one end to your journey. Leaving is all I have to make you understand, you’re not Batman anymore. You have to find another way. You used to talk about finishing a life beyond that awful cape. Bruce Wayne: Rachel died believing that we would be together; that was my life beyond the cape. I can’t just move on. She didn’t, she couldn’t. Alfred: What if she had? What if, before she died, she wrote a letter saying she chose Harvey Dent over you? And what if, to spare your pain, I burnt that letter? Bruce Wayne: How dare you use Rachel to try to stop me? Alfred: I am using the truth, Master Wayne. Maybe it’s time we all stop trying to outsmart the truth and let it have its day. I’m sorry. Bruce Wayne: You’re sorry? You expect to destroy my world and then think we’re going to shake hands? Alfred: No… no, I know what this means. Bruce Wayne: What does it mean? Alfred: It means your hatred… and it also means losing someone that I have cared for since I first heard his cries echo through this house. But it might also mean saving your life. And that is more important. Bruce Wayne: Goodbye, Alfred.
Alfred: [to Bruce] Remember when you left Gotham? Before all this, before Batman? You were gone seven years. Seven years I waited, hoping that you wouldn’t come back. Every year, I took a holiday. I went to Florence, there’s this cafe, on the banks of the Arno. Every fine evening, I’d sit there and order a Fernet Branca. I had this fantasy, that I would look across the tables and I’d see you there, with a wife and maybe a couple of kids. You wouldn’t say anything to me, nor me to you. But we’d both know that you’d made it, that you were happy. I never wanted you to come back to Gotham. I always knew there was nothing here for you, except pain and tragedy. And I wanted something more for you than that. I still do.
John Blake: Not a lot of people know what it feels like to be angry, in your bones. I mean, they understand, foster parents, everybody understands, for awhile. Then they want the angry little kid to do something he knows he can’t do, move on. So after awhile they stop understanding. They send the angry kid to a boys home. I figured it out too late. You gotta learn to hide the anger, practice smiling in the mirror. It’s like putting on a mask.
Alfred: [at Bruce’s grave] I’m so sorry. I failed you. You trusted me, and I failed you.
Alfred: [about Selina Kyle] You two should exchange notes over coffee. Bruce Wayne: So now you’re trying to set me up with a jewel thief? Alfred: At this point, I’d set you up with a chimpanzee if it’d brought you back to the world! Bruce Wayne: There’s nothing out there for me. Alfred: And that’s the problem. You hung up your cape and your cowl, but you didn’t move on, you never went to find a life, to find someone… Bruce Wayne: Alfred… I did find someone. Alfred: I know, and you lost her. But that’s all part of living, sir. But you’re not living. You’re just waiting, hoping for things to go bad again.
Bruce Wayne: If this man is everything that you say he is, then this city needs me. Alfred: This city needs Bruce Wayne, your resources, your knowledge. It doesn’t need your body, or your life. That time has passed. Bruce Wayne: You’re afraid that if I go back out there I’ll fail. Alfred: No. I’m afraid that you want to.
Batman: He was trying to kill millions of innocent people Talia al Ghul: ‘Innocent’ is a strong word to throw around Gotham, Bruce. I honor my father by finishing his work. Vengeance against the man who killed him is simply a reward for my patience… [Talia twists the knife in Batman’s side] Talia al Ghul: You see, it’s the slow knife… the knife that takes its time, the knife that waits years without forgetting, then slips quietly between the bones… that’s the knife that cuts deepest.
[Bane’s men announce their entry into the stock exchange, as the food delivery man shoots down a trader, while the shoeshiner and janitor fire their guns into the trading screen. As the screens shut off, Bane comes in and walks over to one trader] Trader #1: This is a stock exchange! There’s no money you can steal! Bane: Really? Then why are you people here? [Bane drags the trader by his tie across the floor to a computer terminal, slams his head against the table, and uses his security card to log-in and start the application on the shoeshiner’s laptop]
Talia al Ghul: [about Bane] His only crime was that he loved me.
Alfred: If you’re seriously considering going back out there, you should hear the rumors surrounding Bane. Bruce Wayne: I’m all ears. Alfred: There is a prison in a more ancient part of the world, a pit where men are thrown to suffer and die. But sometimes a man rises from the darkness. Sometimes the pit sends something back. Bruce Wayne: Bane. Alfred: Right. Born and raised in hell on earth. Bruce Wayne: Born in prison? Alfred: No one knows why or how he escaped, but they do know that once he did he was trained by Ra’s Al Ghul, your mentor. Bruce Wayne: Bane was a member of The League of Shadows. Alfred: And then he was excommunicated. And any man who is too extreme for Ra’s Al Ghul is not to be trifled with.
Talia al Ghul: [to Bane, regarding Batman] Don’t kill him. I want him to feel the heat. [to Batman] Talia al Ghul: To feel the fire of twelve million souls you failed. [to Bane, stroking his mask tenderly] Talia al Ghul: Goodbye, my friend.
Talia al Ghul: [her last words] My… father’s… work… is… done.
