Sammy had no drive, no reason to make it work. Me? Yeah, I got a reason.Leonard Shelby
Sammy Jankis wrote himself endless notes. But he'd get mixed up. I've got a more graceful solution to the memory problem. I'm disciplined and organized. I use habit and routine to make my life possible. Sammy had no drive. No reason to make it work.Leonard Shelby
Leonard Shelby: I don't think they'd let someone like me carry a gun.
Teddy: I fucking hope not.
Leonard Shelby: These tracks are just a few days old.
Teddy: What are you, Pocahontas?
You know, I've had more rewarding friendships than this one. Although I do get to keep telling the same jokes.Teddy
It's beer o'clock, and I'm buying.Teddy
Natalie: But even if you get revenge you're not gonna remember it. You're not even going to know that it happened.
Leonard Shelby: My wife deserves vengance. Doesn't make a difference whether I know about it. Just becuase there are things I don't remember doesn't make my actions meaningless. The world doesn't just disappear when you close your eyes, does it? Anyway, maybe I'll take a photograph to remind myself, get another freaky tattoo.
Leonard Shelby: ...who did this to you?
Leonard Shelby: Who did this to you?
Dodd: You did?
Teddy: You don't know who you are anymore.
Leonard Shelby: Of course I do. I'm Leonard Shelby. I'm from San Francisco.
Teddy: No, that's who you were. Maybe it's time you started investigating yourself.
I don't feel drunk.Leonard Shelby
I don't even know how long she's been gone. It's like I've woken up in bed and she's not here... because she's gone to the bathroom or something. But somehow, I know she's never gonna come back to bed. If I could just... reach over and touch... her side of the bed, I would know that it was cold, but I can't. I know I can't have her back... but I don't want to wake up in the morning, thinking she's still here. I lie here not knowing... how long I've been alone. So how... how can I heal? How am I supposed to heal if I can't... feel time?Leonard Shelby
Facts, not memories. That's how you investigate. I know, it's what I used to do.Leonard Shelby
