Saw III (2006)
Jigsaw: And what about the other test subjects?
Amanda: What about 'em?
Jigsaw: Is that how you felt about them? Is that how you felt about Eric Matthews?
Amanda: Eric Matthews? I'll tell you how I felt about Eric Matthews. Eric Matthews learned NOTHING from your test. He was the SAME person he was and he arrested me, and he framed me when he took me DOWN!
[flashback]
Eric Matthews: Where is he, you junkie bitch? You're not Jigsaw, bitch!

Dr. Lynn Denlon: Who are you? Who are you? WHAT IS THIS? WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
Amanda: [casually threatens Lynn with a knife] Are you gonna behave?

Amanda: I'm sorry. I know it's hard to concentrate when you're surrounded by so many things you could kill me with. Like this axe I saw you looking at.
[holds the axe out to Lynn]
Amanda: Take it. Please, it's yours. Come on. I go for the neck, but I'm not the brain surgeon. Just do it quietly so John doesn't hear me die. Otherwise, he is likely to get upset, rip off his heart rate monitor - boom! Then, you just have to find the sensor and disarm it so you can walk more than thirty feet out that door without the collar detonating. Or, you could try and take the collar off yourself. But that could be tricky. The slightest knock in the wrong place could trigger it. I should know. I built it.

Amanda: [to Lynn] Let me give you the simple version. You will keep him alive, whatever it takes. No excuses, no equivocations.
[whispers]
Amanda: No crying.

Amanda: So?
Dr. Lynn Denlon: My twenty second analysis without any medical equipment is that his brain is herniating.
Amanda: [sarcastically] Oh.
Dr. Lynn Denlon: He needs to go to the hospital and have an operation to decompress his brain.
Amanda: [whispers] Come here. No, really, come here. Come here.
Dr. Lynn Denlon: No.
Amanda: [whispers] Let me ask you something.
[grabs Lynn by the hair]
Amanda: Did I bring John to you? Or did I bring your self-centered ass to him?
[whispers]
Amanda: Now you better start fucking paying attention. No one's going to any hospital.
[forcibly lets Lynn go]
Dr. Lynn Denlon: I can't perform miracles. You're giving him painkillers - for a tumor like this he needs steroids, prednisones.
Amanda: [sarcastically] Oh, good, yeah.
[yells]
Amanda: Maybe we could try some corticosteroids, you know, like dexamethasone. Why don't you fucking tell me something that I don't know! Stupid cunt!

Amanda: Eric Matthews? I'll tell you about Eric Matthews. Eric Matthews learned *nothing* from your test.

Dr. Lynn Denlon: You're asking me to do the impossible.
Amanda: I'm not asking you.
[referring to Jigsaw]
Amanda: He is.

Amanda: Yeah, that's right. I'm a murderer.

Amanda: So, do you have everything you need?
Dr. Lynn Denlon: I have the instruments to cut someone open. I don't have the tools to save a life.
Amanda: [Amanda looks down at the Jawsplitter] You'd be surprised what tools can save a life.
[Amanda picks up the Jawsplitter]

Jigsaw: I have tried to help you, Amanda.
Amanda: Then help me! Fix me! Fix me motherfucker! I'm standing right here!

Jigsaw: You will give everything to me. Every cell in your body. Is that understood?
Amanda: Yes.
Jigsaw: The marks on your arms, they're from another life. We'll leave that life behind. When you walk down that corridor there is no turning back. Do you understand that?
Amanda: [reluctantly] Yes.
Jigsaw: Then start with this.
[hands Amanda an envelope]

Amanda: He's completed the third test.
Jigsaw: Congratulations Lynn, you're free to go.
Amanda: Yeah, but he's not all the way out yet.
[shakes her head]
Jigsaw: Undo her collar, Amanda, and let her go.
Amanda: No, he's not finished. He's not all the way.
Jigsaw: Amanda, Lynn is more important than you know. Unlock her collar and let her go.
Amanda: [whispering] I said no.
[caulks a handgun]
Jigsaw: Amanda, there are rules.
Amanda: [yelling] I said no!

Amanda: He made it through the freezer room. He tried to save her.
[starts crying]
Jigsaw: There are some things I need you to do for me. In my desk. An envelope with your name on it.
Amanda: [referring to Lynn] She's going to do a procedure on you.
Jigsaw: Yeah?
Amanda: To relieve the pressure on your brain.
Jigsaw: Yeah.
Amanda: Help with the headaches.
[pauses]
Amanda: I can't do this!
[leans back in the chair and cries harder]
Jigsaw: Amanda, you can. You can! You're stronger now. And I believe in you.
Amanda: You chose her because she's the best, right?
Jigsaw: That's one reason I chose her.

Amanda: Are you gonna behave?

Amanda: He made it through the second test. The judge is alive.
Jigsaw: Faster than I expected.
Dr. Lynn Denlon: [before the surgery] Alright, John, I need you to keep your head to the side and keep still. What's going on here is your brain is pushing against your skull. I'm going to try and relieve the pressure by cutting away a little bit of your skull. It should help you with your headaches and drastically improve your motor skills. Do you understand?
Jigsaw: All too well.
Dr. Lynn Denlon: [injecting medicine] You're going to feel some slight discomfort.
Amanda: Are you going to give him a general anesthetic?
Dr. Lynn Denlon: For a procedure like this the patient needs to be fully alert.

Amanda: Right fucking here!

Amanda: She doesn't deserve to go free!

[first lines]
Amanda: Game over.
Eric Matthews: I'll fucking kill you! You fucking bitch! You fucking bitch! I'll fucking kill you!
[screams hopelessly]


Saw II (2005)
Amanda: What is the cure for Cancer, Eric? The cure for death itself. The answer is immortality. By creating a legacy, by living a life worth remembering, you become immortal. So now we find the tables are turned. It is I who will carry on John's work after he dies, and you are my first test subject. Now you are locked away, helpless and alone.
[Appears at door frame]
Amanda: Game Over.
[She slams to door shut]
Eric Matthews: [Screaming at Amanda] Daniel! Daniel! You Fucking Bitch! I'll Fucking kill you! You Fucking Bitch!... You Fucking Bitch! I'll fucking kill you! Noooooooo, Nooooooo! Help! Nooooo...

Amanda: We have to play by the fucking rules!

Daniel: My Dad's a... he's a real hard ass. You know, he's probably got half the city out looking for me, just so he can kick my ass for disappearing on him.
Amanda: ...yeah, probably.

Amanda: If it's stuck, it's a trap.
Xavier: Lady, this whole house is a trap.

Amanda: The note said not to use the key...!

Jonas: How do you know all this?
Amanda: Because I've played before.

Amanda: Game over.

Daniel: Amanda, you said you survived this right?
Amanda: I what?
Daniel: This guy. You said that you've played before and you survived.
Amanda: Yeah.
Daniel: So that means we could survive.
[nervously chuckles]
Amanda: [pauses] Yeah.

Daniel: Amanda, why did he pick you?
Amanda: Because I was a fucking junkie.
[flashes to Amanda shooting heroin]
Amanda: But you know what? I passed his little test
[laughs]
Daniel: If you passed his test then why are you back here?
Amanda: [flashes to Amanda cutting her wrist] I wasn't being very good to myself.
Daniel: [looks at the scars on Amanda's arm] How long have you, um...?
Amanda: I started in jail.
Daniel: What were you arrested for?
Amanda: [yanks her arm away] Possession.
Daniel: I thought you said...
Amanda: Maybe you should talk to the cop who arrested me.

Laura: X marks the spot.
[points to the wall]
Amanda: What?
Addison: [looking at a picture of Daniel next to Eric] What are you doing with him?
Daniel: You know him?
Addison: Yeah! He's the guy who put me away. He set me up!
Amanda: Tell me that's not your father.
Addison: [pause] I can't trust any of you.

Amanda: [referring to Daniel] He's gone.
Xavier: Doesn't matter. All I want is the number on the back of his neck and then yours.
Amanda: You still don't know your own number. How are you going to get it if I don't tell you?


Saw VI (2009)
[flashback]
Jigsaw: Methadone's a masking agent; it doesn't heal, it simple nulls the senses. I found a better way. These people, they will continue to hurt you, and let you down.
Jill: They're addicts John. Recovery is a process.
Jigsaw: Maybe addiction's just part of human nature. But what about these people, Jill, who come here every day and use you? They bide their time. They're avoiding prison sentence. They're getting hooked on masking agents. Do you call that recovery?
Jill: It's not that simple.
Jigsaw: Addiction is not simple, Jill! Wake up! These people have no respect for the lives they're destroying. Once you see death up close... then you know what the value of life is. And that's my way. And I brought proof that it works.
Jill: Amanda?
Amanda: Hello Jill.
Jigsaw: Jill, you once told me she was a lost soul. But here she stands. She's clean and whole. And she has new appreciation for her life.
Amanda: It works. It's real. He helped me.
[back to present]
Jill: Okay, John.
[leaves]

Amanda: [to Corbett] Remember.
[pauses]
Amanda: Remember, don't trust the one who saves you.

Amanda: Get used to me because I'm not going anywhere.
Mark Hoffman: You sure about that?

Amanda: So when's your test, Detective?
Mark Hoffman: I don't need one.
Amanda: [sarcastically] Oh yeah?

Amanda: [Pressuring Cecil to break into the clinic] Go, go!
Cecil: I don't know about this.
Amanda: What do you mean you don't know about this?
Cecil: She's been good to us.
Amanda: [Leans seductively toward Cecil and starts crying] I've been good to you.
Cecil: I know, I know.
Amanda: Please go!
Cecil: [Pulls Amanda close to him] You drive me crazy!
Amanda: Go, you fucking pussy. Go, go go!
