Is that it? Is that all you're gonna ask me? Well I got a couple of thousand goddamn questions, you know. I want to speak to someone in charge. I want to lodge a complaint. You have no right to make people crazy! You think I investigate every Walter Cronkite story there is? Huh? If this is just nerve gas, how come I know everything in such detail? I've never been here before. How come I know so much? What the hell is going on around here? Who the hell are you people?

Roy Neary

[narrating] Janie's a pretty typical teenager. Angry, insecure, confused. I wish I could tell her that's all going to pass, but I don't want to lie to her.

Lester Burnham

Ava Gardner: You listened to my phone calls?
Howard Hughes: No! No! No! Honey I would never do that! I'd never do that! I... I just read the transcripts, that's all.

Jack: That's two thousand dollars, minus my commission.
Forrest: Look at you, swanning around like you're Al Capone.

Jake Tyler Brigance: We're going to lose this case, Carl lee. There are no more points of law to argue here. I want to cope a plea, maybe Buckley will cop us a second degree murder and we can get you just life in prison.
Carl Lee Hailey: Jake, I can't do no life in prison. You got to get me off. Now if it was you on trial...
Jake Tyler Brigance: It's not me, we're not the same, Carl Lee. The jury has to identify with the defendant. They see you, they see a yardworker; they see me, they see an attorney. I live in town, you live in the hill.

Take care of them, Gale. Whatever you do, don't let them starve!

Katniss Everdeen

Sophie Neveu: [rips the tape off Silas's mouth] Did you kill Jacques Sauniere?
[no answer]
Sophie Neveu: Did you kill Jacques Sauniere?
Silas: I am the messenger of God.
Sophie Neveu: [slaps him across the face] Did you kill my grandfather?
Silas: I am the messenger -
[Sophie slaps him again]
Silas: Each breath you take is a sin. No shadow will be safe again, for you will be hunted by angels.
Sophie Neveu: You believe in God? Your God doesn't forgive murderers... he burns them.

In punishment for lack of an interesting pirate name, Peter shall walk the plank.

J.M. Barrie

A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

Hannibal Lecter

Hand me the fucking keys, you cocksucker, what the fuck?


Somehow I've become very cautious. When I put on a raincoat, I put on sunglasses too. Who knows when it will rain, or when it will turn out sunny?

Woman in blonde wig

Jules, y'know, honey... this isn't real. You know what it is? It's St. Elmo's Fire. Electric flashes of light that appear in dark skies out of nowhere. Sailors would guide entire journeys by it, but the joke was on them... there was no fire. There wasn't even a St. Elmo. They made it up. They made it up because they thought they needed it to keep them going when times got tough, just like you're making up all of this. We're all going through this. It's our time at the edge.
