You wanted to see if I was crazy and would screw everything up if I actually won.


[voiceover] Dear Fellows, I can't believe how fast things move on the outside. I saw an automobile when I was a kid, but now... they're everywhere. The world went and got itself in a big damn hurry Whilst being shown into a room. The parole board got me into this... half way house, called "The Brewer", Whilst working in Grocery Store, And a job bagging groceries in The Food Way. It's hard work, and I try to keep up, but my hands hurt most of the time. I don't think the store manager likes me very much. Sometimes after work I go to the park and feed the birds,I keep thinkin' Jake might just show up and say 'Hello'. But he never does. I hope wherever he is, he's doin' ok and makin' new friends. I have trouble sleeping at night; I have bad dreams like I'm falling. I wake up scared. Sometimes it takes me a while to remember where I am.
Maybe I should get me a gun and rob the Food Way so they'd send me home. I could shoot the manager while I was at it, sorta like a bonus. I guess I'm too old for that sorta nonsence anymore. I don't like it here, I'm tired of being afraid all the time. I've decided not to stay. I doubt they'd kick up any fuss, not for an old crook like me.

James Bond: Two.

Fenster: I don't know anything about no fuckin? truck.
Cop: Oh, yeah? Well, your friend McManus told us a different story altogether.

Danny Archer: Yeah, I've heard that before.

Ben Wade: Women will do things you'd never imagine.
Doc Potter: They'll give you a disease you'd never imagine.

Now that we know who you are... I know who I am. I'm not a mistake! It all makes sense. In a comic, you know how you can tell who the arch villain's going to be? He's the exact opposite of the hero, and most times they're friends, like you and me. I should've known way back when. You know why, David? Because of the kids. They called me Mr. Glass!

Elijah Price

Christopher is staying with me.

Christopher Gardner

Mr. President, you've got bigger problems than losing me. You just lost my vote.

Sydney Ellen Wade

I've gotten used to ignoring them and I think, as a result, they've kind of given up on me. I think that's what it's like with all our dreams and our nightmares, Martin, we've got to keep feeding them for them to stay alive.


Rip Reed: Hey man. That's not yours.
