Will: Four minutes for a cup of coffee?
Will's Friend: Yesterday it was three!
Coffee worker: You want coffee or you want to reminisce?

Just once I'd like to wake up with more time on my hand than hours in the day.

Will: How can you live with yourself watching people die right next to you?
Sylvia: You don't watch. You close your eyes.

His crime wasn't taking time. He was giving it away.

Henry: How old are you? In real time?
Will: 28.
Henry: I'm 105. Does it show? The day comes when you've had enough. Your mind can be spent even if your body's not.
Will: That's your problem? You've been alive too long? Have you ever known anyone who's died?
Henry: For a few to be immortal, many must die.
Will: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Henry: You really don't know, do you? Everyone can't live forever, where would we put them? Why do you think there are time zones? Why to you think taxes and prices go up the same day in the ghetto? The cost of living keeps rising to make sure people keep dying. How else could there be men with a million years almost from day to day? The truth is, there's more than enough. No one has to die before their time. If you had as much time as I have, what would you do with it?
Will: If I had all that time, I sure as hell wouldn't waste it.

Philippe Weis: Of course, some think what we have is unfair -- the time difference between zones.
Will: I've heard that.
Philippe Weis: But, hasn't evolution always been unfair? It's always been survival of the fittest. This is merely Darwinian capitalism -- natural selection.
Will: Absolutely. The strong survive.

Will: Whoa, where's the rest?
Manager: You never met the quota.
Will: My units are up from last week.
Manager: So's the quota.

Phillippe Weis: You put enough time in the wrong hands, you upset the whole system.
Will: Let's hope so.

Sylvia: Please take me home.
Will: I can't do that.
Sylvia: Why?
Will: You're keeping me alive.
