The Interpreter

Tobin: "I stay awake."


Silvia: "Any leads?"
Tobin: "Maybe one. Come on down to Mexico."
[hands her a picture of a rally, her face can be seen among the crowd]
Tobin: "Is that you? Can you tell me what somebody like you, who uses the word "diplomacy", like she's chastising me, is doing at a rebel rally?"
Silvia: "A peace rally."
Tobin: "I don't want to do this again!"
Silvia: "That's exactly what it is. What I am doing is listening."
Tobin: "After that, after you listen."
Silvia: "You're asking the wrong questions."
Tobin: "I'm asking you the question you don't want to answer."
Silvia: "Why would someone take a picture and type the names of everyone in it on the back. This is a death list. The question you should be asking is "who gave me this?" and "why?""

Silvia: "I wouldn't mind if he were gone."
Tobin: "Same thing."
Silvia: "No it isn't. If I interpreted gone as dead I'd be out of a job, if dead and gone were the same thing there'd be no UN."
Tobin: "Your profession is playing with words Ms. Broome."
Silvia: "I don't play with words."
Tobin: "You're doing it right now."
Silvia: "No you are. If I wanted him dead, I wouldn't have reported it. I would sit back and let it happen. That's not what I want, that's not why I'm here."


Silvia: "I'm scared and my protector is some one who doesn't believe me."
Tobin: "You don't look scared..."
Silvia: "People handle fear in different ways Mr. Keller, it turns some people into stand up comedians. You don't know me at all. Maybe I should talk to someone else about assigning someone to look after me who's better suited to the job."
Tobin: "My job is not to look after you, but to look after the man whose been threatened, if there was a threat. My job as it concerns you is to investigate you."
Silvia: "So you're not here to offer me any protection whatsoever?"
Tobin: "No Ma'am."
Silvia: [handing him back his card] "... and we were getting along so well."


Silvia: "Vengeance is a lazy form of grief."


Silvia: "Kapéla, we're on opposite sides of the river."

Anna: "You know I loved Sean so much, and its been so long that I still can't him out of my system. This is going to sound a little strange but I've met someone, who seems to be Sean."

Dogville
[After Chuck sees Grace teaching his kids]
Chuck: "How is it going otherwise with the fooling act?"
Grace: "I wasn't trying to fool anyone."
Chuck: "I mean Dogville. Has it got you fooled yet?"
Grace: "I thought you were implying that I was trying to exploit the town."
Chuck: "Wishful thinking. This town is rotten from the inside out and I wouldn't miss it if it fell into the gorge tomorrow. I see no charm here. But you seem to. Admit it, you've fallen for Dogville. The trees, the mountains, the simple folk. And if all that ain't got you fooled yet, I bet the cinnamon has. That damned cinnamon in those gooseberry pies. Dogville has everything that you ever dreamed of in the big city."
Grace: "You're worse than Tom. How do you know what I dreamed of? You're from the city yourself, aren't you?"
Chuck: "That was a long time ago. I'm not that stupid anymore. I've found out that people are the same all over. Greedy as animals. In a small town they're just a bit less successful. Feed 'em enough, they'll eat till their bellies burst."
Grace: "That's why you want to get rid of me... Because you can't stand that I remind you of what it was you came here to find."



Grace: "All I see is a beautiful little town in the midst of magnificant mountains. A place where people have hopes and dreams even under the hardest conditions."


Grace: "But I've got nothing to offer them in return."
Tom: "Oh, I think you have plenty to offer Dogville."


[Tom offers a piece of bread to Grace]
Tom: "You want to eat? You must be hungry."
Grace: "I can't. I don't deserve that bread. I stole that bone. I've never stolen anything before. So now, now I have to punish myself. I was raised to be arrogant. So, I... I had to teach myself these things."
Tom: "Well, it may be for your education. Grace, in this town... In these times... It's very impolite not to eat what's set before you."



Chuck: "God only knows what that woman is capable of." Grace: "You know she's not capable of anything."


Cold Mountain
"What we have lost will never be returned to us. The land will not heal - too much blood. All we can do is learn from the past and make peace with it."


Inman: You are all that keeps me from sliding into some dark place.
Ada: But how did I keep you? We barely knew each other. A few moments.
Inman: A thousand moments. They're like a bag of tiny diamonds glittering in a black heart. Don't matter if they're real or things I made up. The shape of your neck, that's real. You were always carrying a tray.
Ada: You wouldn't come inside.
Inman: I wouldn't come inside.
Ada: I had to carry a tray to come out and see you.
Inman: The way you felt when I pulled you to me. That kiss- which I kissed again everyday of my walking.
Ada: Everyday of my waiting...


"I will not leave Cold Mountain. My last thread of courage is to wait... for you."

"I can talk about farming... in Latin. I can read French. I can lace up a corset, God knows I can do that. I can name the major rivers in Europe, just don't ask me about anything around here. I can embroider but I can't darn. I can arrange flowers but I can't grow them."


"When this war is over, there will be a reckoning."


"I would have followed you anywhere... to Mongolia."


"Inman. It is three years and I remember your name"


"I count the number of words that have passed between us, Inman and me--not very many. But I think about it."


"Ruby, this fence may be the first thing I ever did that might produce a result"


"My love where are you? With no hope of reaching you I write to you... as I have always done"


Inman: Ada, I wanna marry you. If you'll have me.
Ada: Isn't there some religion where you just say I marry you, three times, and then you're man and wife.
Inman: I marry you, I marry you, I marry you.
[Ada laughs]
Inman: Why is that funny?
Ada: No, I think it's I divorce you three times and then you're not married anymore.


Ruby: We got something for you.
Ada: For all your kindness. Coffee and pie.
Ruby: That's real coffee. It ain't hickory and dirt.
Sally: Thank you both. Ruby, I look forward to this. We all do. Esco and me.
Ruby: [grinning at Ada] She made it.
Ada: I made it.
Sally: Good God in Heaven.
Ruby: I'm still alive!


"If you saw us this Easter... you would know that every step of your journey is worth it"


Ada: Did you get a picture made?
Inman: Say again?
Ada: A tintype, with your gun and courage on display.
Inman: You're laughing at me.
Ada: I don't know you.
Inman: You're always carrying a tray.


Ruby: I hope that Georgia boy's been seeing to the animals.
Ada: I thought you were thinking on him!
Ruby: I was not. I was thinking on swollen udders- and before you say same difference.
Ada: I'm not saying nothing!
Ruby: Miss lovely-dovey!

"Action is the enemy of thought"


The Hours
"To look life in the face, always, to look life in the face, and to know it for what it is. At last to know it, to love it, for what it is, and then, to put it away. Leonard, always the years between us, always the years, always the love, always...the hours..."


Vanessa: "Virginia!"
Virginia Woolf: "Leonard thinks it's the end of civilization: People who are invited at 4 and arrive at 2:30."
Vanessa Bell: "Oh God!"
Virginia Woolf: "Barbarians!"


"I am ungrateful? You call ME ungrateful? My life has been stolen from me. I'm living in a town I have no wish to live in... I'm living a life I have no wish to live.... How did this happen?"


"If I were thinking clearly, Leonard, I would tell you that I wrestle alone in the dark, in the deep dark, and that only I can know. Only I can understand my condition. You live with the threat, you tell me you live with the threat of my extinction. Leonard, I live with it too."



"This is my right; it is the right of every human being. I choose not the suffocating anesthetic of the suburbs, but the violent jolt of the Capital, that is my choice. The meanest patient, yes, even the very lowest is allowed some say in the matter of her own prescription. Thereby she defines her humanity. I wish, for your sake, Leonard, I could be happy in this quietness. [pauses] But if it is a choice between Richmond and death, I choose death."


"Leonard, you cannot find peace by avoiding life."


"Mrs. Dallaway said "She would buy the flowers herself."


"I can't think of anything more exhilarating than a trip to London."

John: "Well, Nadia, if it's all the same to you, I'd like to give it a bash."


Nadia: "My name is Sophia."
John: "Sophia. Hello, Sophia. Mine's still John."
Nadia: "Hello, John."


Alexei: "What would we do with a baby?"
Sophia: "Think of a name for it."


The Others
Grace: "My husband went to war and did not come back. Who will do the cooking?"
Mrs. Mills: "I'm sorry, miss."
Grace: "Who will do the cooking?"


Charles: "I just came home to say goodbye to my wife and children."
Grace: "Where are you going?"
Charles: "To the front."
Grace: "I thought the war was over."
Charles: "The war is not over."
Grace: "You're not going. You left us once already. YOU CAN'T GO. Why did you go and fight that stupid war that had NOTHING TO DO WITH US. Why didn't you stay like the others did?"
Charles: "The others surrendered."
Grace: "We are all surrendered what did you expect? What were you trying to prove by going to war? Your place was here with your family. I loved you, but that wasn't enough was it? Your want to leave not because of the war, you want to leave me, remember when you told me "I know place where no one can bother our children when they are playing""


Grace: "Whoever took the curtains wants to kill my children."
Mrs. Mills: "Now, why do you think the daylight would kill them?"
Grace: "Are you mad? I already told you my children are photosensitive. THE LIGHT WILL KILL THEM."
Mrs. Mills: "Yes, but that was before. The condition could of cleared up."


Grace: "So you say you know this house well?"
Mrs. Mills: "Like the back of my hand, that is assuming the walls haven't sprouted legs and moved in the meantime."
Grace: "The only thing that moves here is the light, but it changes everything."


"I just feel more and more cut off from the world."


Grace: "You told your brother there was someone else in the room."
Anne: "There was."
Grace: "That'll do Anne."


Grace: "Where's my daughter? What have you done with my daughter?"
Anne: "Are you mad? I am your daughter."


Moulin Rouge
"I don't need you anymore! All my life you made believe I was only worth what someone would pay for me! But Christian loves me. He loves me! He loves me, Harold. And that is worth everything! We're going away from you, away from the Duke, away from the Moulin Rouge!"


Zidler: "I am the evil maharajah."
Satine: "Oh Harold, no one could play him like you could."
Zidler: "No one's going to."


Christian: "Where were you last night?"
Satine: "I told you... I was sick."
Christian: "You don't have to lie to me."
Satine: "We have to end it. Everybody knows. Harold knows. Sooner or later the duke will find out"


Zidler: "the Duke holds the deeds to the Moulin Rouge, he spending a fortune on you, he's giving you a beautiful new dressing room, he wants to make you a star, but YOU ARE DLYING WITH THE WRTIRE."
Satine: "HOW DARE YOU?"
Zidler: "I SAW YOU TOGETHER."
Satine: "It's nothing. Its just infatuation it's nothing."
Zidler: "And the infatuation will end. Go to the boy; tell him it's over, and the Duke expecting you at the hour eight."


Christian: "It's a little bit funny." Satine: "What?" Christian: "This feeling inside. I'm not one of those who can easily hide. Is this ok? Is this what you want?"
Satine: "Ah, poetry. Yes, this it what I want naughty words."
Christian: "I don't have much money but boy if I did, I'd buy a big house where we both could live. If I were a sculptor, but then again, no. Or a man who makes potions a traveling show. I know it's not much..."
Satine: "Oh Naughty, don't stop, don't stop."
Christian: "But it's the best I can do."


Satine: "A little supper? Maybe some champagne?"
Christian: "I'd rather, um, just get it over and done with."
Satine: "Hmph. Oh. Very well. Then why don't you come down here and let's get it over and done with."
Christian: "I prefer to do it standing."
Satine: "Oh."
[starts to stand]
Christian: "You don't have to stand, I mean. It's sometimes that... It's quite long and I'd like you to be comfortable. It's quite modern what I do and it may feel a little strange at first, but I think, if you're open, then you might enjoy it."
Satine: "I'm sure I will..."


"The difference between you and I is that you can leave anytime you choose. But this is my home."


Christian: "Wait. No, please wait. Before, when we were... when you thought I was the Duke, you said that you loved me, a- and I wondered if..."
Satine: "It was just an act?"
Christian: "Yes."
Satine: "Of course."
Christian: "Oh. It just felt real."
Satine: "Christian, I'm a courtesan. I'm paid to make men believe what they want to believe."



"What's his type? Wilting flower? Bright and bubbly? Or smoldering temptress?"


Zidler: "Remember, a real show, in a real theater, with a real audience. And you'll be..."
Satine: "A real actress."


Satine: "I can't believe it. I'm in love! I'm in love with a young, handsome, talented duke."
Christian: "Duke?"
Satine: "Not that the title's important, of course!"
Christian: "I'm not a duke."
Satine: "Not a duke?"
Christian: "I'm a writer."
Satine: "A writer?"


"You're going to be bad for business. I can tell."


Satine: "Harold, the poor Duke is being treated appallingly. These silly writers let their imaginations run away with them."
[to the Duke]
Satine: "Now why don't you and I have a little supper. And then afterwards, we can let Monsieur Zidler know how we would prefer the story to end."




Satine: [crying] "I couldn't, I saw you there and I couldn't and the Duke he's so... , I'm tired I don't want lie , and he knows, I don't want pretend anymore, I don't want to lie"
Christian: "That's right, we don't have to pretend anymore, we leave, we leave tonight"
Satine: "Leave...? But the show ?"



"Please tell me you're not one of Toulouse's oh so talented, charmingly bohemian, tragically impoverished writers?"


Eyes Wide Shut
Bill: "Are you sure of that?"
Alice: "Am I sure? Only as sure as I am that the reality of one night, let alone that of a whole lifetime, can ever be the whole truth."
Bill: "And no dream is ever just a dream."


Alice: "Why do think Ziegler invites us to these things every year?"
Bill: "This is what you get for making house calls."


Sandor Szavost: "Don't you think one of the charms of marriage is that it makes deception a necessity for both parties? May I ask why a beautiful woman who could have any man in this room wants to be married?"
Alice: "Why wouldn't she?"
Sandor Szavost: "Is it as bad as that?"
Alice: "As good as that!"


"So, because I'm a beautiful woman, the only reason any man wants to talk to me is because he wants to f**k me? Is that what you're saying?"


Alice: "Millions of years of evolution, right? Right? Men have to stick it in every place they can, but for women... women it is just about security and commitment and whatever the f**k else!"
Bill: "A little oversimplified, Alice, but yes, something like that."
Alice: "If you men only knew..."


Bill: "Honey, have you seen my wallet?"
Alice: "Isn't it on the bedside table?"
Bill: "Now listen, you know we're running a little late"
Alice: "I know. How do I look?"
Bill: "Perfect."
Alice: "Is my hair okay?"
Bill: "It's great"
Alice: "You're not even looking at it."
Bill: "It's beautiful. You always look beautiful."



Practical Magic
Sally: "What would you do, Gilly?"
Gillian: W"hat wouldn't I do... for the right guy?"


"Hang onto your husbands, girls!"


"Did you ever stick your arms out and spin and spin and spin? Well, that's what love is like."


"Of course you're going to see me again. We'll grow old together. It's going to be you and me living in a big house... these two old biddies with all these. I bet we even die on the same day."


[after they make a binder ring snap on a mother's finger]
Sally: [to Gillian] Don't do that."
Gillian: It wasn't me, it was you!"
Mother: "Oh I am so please to report this, and the top of the phone tree list is... wait a minute, it's Sally Owens"
Gillian: "Whooo go Sal... now that was me!"



The Peacemaker
Julia: "You will not take action without authorization."
Devoe: "What do you think I am, some gung-ho, stupid son of a bitch?"
Julia: "No, I don't think you're stupid."



Julia: "Where the hell is my military liason?"
Devoe: "Colonel Thomas Devoe reporting as ordered, ma'am. I'm sorry about in there, sometimes my enthusiasm gets the better of me."
Julia: "No problem. Would you like some coffee?"
Devoe: "I'd love some."
Julia: "It's over there."



Julia: "So do you think he set us up?"
Devoe: "Who?"
Julia: "Your friend."
Devoe: "No."
Julia: "How can you be so sure?"
Devoe: "Because he's my friend."


Devoe: "I'd like to know something. You moved from Lawrence Livermore to the White House. So, first you build the bombs to blow up the entire world, and now you want to save it. Make up your mind: which is it going to be?"
Julia: "Well, I believe this week we're saving it."


Julia: "Would you call Langley? We're still waiting on a psych profile on Kodorov."
Devoe: "He's an asshole. Save you the trip."
Julia: "Thanks, I'll settle for the official version."
Devoe: "OK, officially - he's an asshole!"


Devoe: "It doesn't make sense. You don't... you don't kill a Dimitri Vertikoff. There are certain rules - killing him isn't useful."
Julia: "Is it ever?"


Devoe: "Doctor, you can run your charts and your theories all you want. In the field, this is how it works: the good guys, that's us, we chase the bad guys. And they don't wear black hats. They are, however, all alike: they demand power, and respect, and they're willing to pay top dollar to get it. And that is our highly motivated buyer."
Julia: "What about other motivations?"
Devoe: "Not important to me."
Julia: "Whether it's important to you or not, there are people out there who don't care about money, who don't give a damn about respect. People who believe the killing of innocent men and women is justified. For them it is about rage, frustration, hatred... they feel pain and they're determined to share it with the world."
Devoe: "Okay, that does me no good. Now let's deal with the facts at hand. 23 hours ago, General Alexander Kodoroff stole ten nuclear warheads."
Julia: "He's just a delivery boy. I'm not afraid of the man who wants ten nuclear weapons, Colonel. I'm terrified of the man who only wants one."


To Die For
"You know Mr. Gorbachev, the guy that ran Russia for so long? I am a firm believer that he would still be in power today if he had had that ugly purple thing taken off his head."

"You aren't really anybody in America if you're not on TV."


Batman Forever
Chase: "Hot entrance!"


Batman: "Commissioner Gordon?"
Chase: "He's at home. I sent the signal."
Batman: "What's wrong?"
Chase: "Last night, at the bank, I noticed something about Two-Face. His coin. It's his Achilles' heel. It can be exploited."
Batman: "I know. You called me here for this? The Batsignal is not a beeper."
Chase: "Well I wish I could say that my interest in you was... purely professional."
Batman: "You trying to get under my cape, doctor?"
Chase: "A girl can't live by psychoses alone."
Batman: "It's the car, right? Chicks love the car."
Chase: "What is it about the wrong kind of man? In grade school it was guys with earrings. College, motorcycles, leather jackets. Now, *oh*, black rubber."
Batman: "Try firemen, less to take off."
Chase: "I don't mind the work. Pity I can't see behind the mask."
Batman: "We all wear masks."
Chase: "My life's an open book. You read?"
Batman: "I don't blend in at a family picnic."
Chase: ""Oh, we could give it a try. I'll bring the wine, you bring your scarred psyche."
Batman: "Direct aren't you?"
Chase: You like strong women. I've done my homework. Or do I need skin-tight vinyl and a whip?"
Batman: "I haven't had that much luck with women."
Chase: "Maybe you just haven't met the right woman."



Batman: "I read your work. Insightful. Naive, but insightful."
Chase: "I'm flattered. Not every girl makes a superhero's night table."


Chase: "By the way, do you have a first name, or do I just call you Bat?"


Chase: "He'll slaughter them without thinking twice."
Batman: "Agreed. A trauma powerful enough to create an alternate personality leaves the victim..."
Chase: "- in a world where normal rules of right and wrong no longer apply."
Batman: "Exactly."
Chase: "Like you. - Well, let's just say that I could write a hell of a paper on a grown man who dresses like a flying rodent."
Batman: "Bats aren't rodents, Dr. Meridian."


Chase:: [talking to the shadow]) "Edward, who is Batman?"

Shannon: [about Grace] "She's got an awfully large Chest to be going to church."
Joseph: "Well, All Chests are equal in the eyes of God."


Flirting
Nicola Radcliffe: "So what did you actually do together?"
Thandiwe Adjewa: "I beg your pardon?"
Nicola Radcliffe: "No, it's all right. You don't have to tell me. I think... if I liked somebody enough... I'd want to..."
Thandiwe Adjewa: "Have you ever?"
Nicola Radcliffe: "Of course not."
Thandiwe Adjewa: "Almost?"
Nicola Radcliffe: "Well... Do you remember the young guy who was fixing the bell tower? I used to take him a cup of tea each morning before assembly. I rather liked him even though he never said anything much. I used to... close my eyes... and sit on a chair... and let him touch me all over... as long as he promised not to take anything off. I thought it was so exquisitely daring I'd almost faint. I'd have to sit down because I was trembling so much, my legs would've given way. Afterwards I'd be reading the lesson, convinced all the teachers must know because... because I was so shivery delicious all over."
Thandiwe Adjewa: "I'm amazed."
Nicola Radcliffe: "So am I when I think of it. Which I do most of the time, especially in maths. So, here's to risks."
