The Mummy (1999)
Evelyn: Look, I... I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr. O'Connell, but I am proud of what I am.
Rick: And what is that?
Evelyn: I... am a librarian.

Evelyn: You were actually at Hamunaptra?
Rick: Yeah, I was there.
Evelyn: You swear?
Rick: Every damn day.

Evelyn: You know, nasty little fellows such as yourself always get their comeuppance.
Beni: They do?

Evelyn: Have you got any bright ideas?
Rick: I'm thinking, I'm thinking...
Evelyn: You better think of something fast, because, if he turns me into a mummy you're the first one I'm coming after.

Evelyn: You lied to me.
Jonathan: I lie to everybody. What makes you so special?
Evelyn: I am your sister.
Jonathan: Yes, well that just makes you more gullible.

Rick: Can you swim?
Evelyn: Well, of course I can swim if the occasion calls for it.
Rick: [throwing her overboard] Trust me. It calls for it.

Evelyn: [Evy is drunk] You're wondering, 'What is a place like me doing in a girl like this?'
Rick: Yeah, something like that.

Evelyn: [Upon opening the tomb] I've dreamt about this since I was a little girl.
Rick: You dream about dead guys?

Evelyn: By the way, why did you kiss me?
Rick: I don't know. I was about to be hanged. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
Evelyn: Ooh!
[gets up and walks away in a huff]
Rick: [Calling after her] What? What'd I say?

Rick: That's called "stealing," you know.
Evelyn: According to you and my brother it's called "borrowing."

Dr. Bey: We are part of an ancient secret society. For over three thousand years we have guarded the City of the Dead. We are sworn at manhood to do any and all in our power to stop the High Priest Imhotep from being reborn into this world.
Ardeth Bay: Now, because of you, we have failed.
Evelyn: And you think this justifies the killing of innocent people?
Dr. Bey: To stop this creature? Let me think...
Ardeth Bay, Dr. Bey: YES!

Rick: Sorry. Didn't mean to scare you.
Evelyn: The only thing that scares me, Mr. O'Connell, are your manners.

Evelyn: Patience is a virtue.
Rick: Not right now it isn't.

Rick: Let me get this straight, they ripped out your guts and they stuffed them in jars?
Evelyn: And they take out your heart as well. Oh, and you know how they took out your brains?
Jonathan: Evy, I don't think we need to know this
Evelyn: They take a sharp, red hot poker, stick it up your nose, scramble things about a bit, and then rip it all out through your nostrils.
Rick: Ooh, that's got to hurt.
Evelyn: It's called mummification, you'll be dead when they do this.
Rick: For the record, if I don't make it out of here, don't put me down for mummification.
Jonathan: Likewise.

Evelyn: [after destroying the museum library] Oops.

Dr. Bey: [stutters in disbelief] Oh, look at this! Sons of the pharaohs! Give me frogs, flies, locusts, anything but YOU! Compared to you the other plagues were a joy!
Evelyn: I am so very sorry. It was an accident.
Dr. Bey: My darling girl, when Ramses destroyed Syria, that was an accident. You are a catastrophe!

Evelyn, Imhotep: Death is only the beginning.

Evelyn: [In a darkened room] Abdul?
[no answer]
Evelyn: Mohammed?
[no answer]
Evelyn: ... Bob?

Evelyn: [at Hamunaptra, opening Imhotep's sarcophagus] Oh my God, I hate it when these things do that.
Rick: Is he supposed to look like that?
Evelyn: No, I've never seen a mummy look like this before. He's still... still...
Rick, Jonathan: ...juicy.

Evelyn: We must stop him from regenerating. Who opened that chest?
Mr. Henderson: Well, there was me, and Daniels here. Oh, and Burns, of course.
Mr. Daniels: And that Egyptologist feller.
Rick: What about my buddy, Beni?
Mr. Daniels: Nah, he scrammed out of there 'fore we opened the damn thing.
Mr. Henderson: Yeah. He was the smart one.
Rick: Well, yeah, that sounds like Beni.

Evelyn: The map! The map! We forgot the map!
Rick: Relax. I'm the map. It's all up here.
[points to his head]
Evelyn: Oh, that's comforting.

Jonathan: [Jonathan hands Evy a strange box] My whole life I've never found anything, Evy. *Please* tell me I've found something.
Jonathan: [Evelyn opens the strange box, inside lies an ancient map] Jonathan?
Jonathan: Yes?
Evelyn: I think you found something.

Rick: Are you sure you want to be playing around with this thing?
Evelyn: It's just a book. No harm ever came from reading a book.

Evelyn: [about O'Connell] Personally, I think he's filthy, rude, a complete scoundrel. I don't like him one bit.
Rick: Anyone I know?

Evelyn: [Jonathan looks through the warden's pouch. Suddenly he cuts himself on something] What is it?
Jonathan: A broken bottle. Glenlivet. Twelve years old! Well, he may have been a stinky fellow, but he had good taste.

Evelyn: Now, what exactly is this man in prison for?
Warden Gad Hassan: Well, this I did not know. But when I heard you were coming, I asked him that myself.
Warden Gad Hassan: Ya'llah!
[Arabic: "Hurry up!"]
Evelyn: And what did he say?
Warden Gad Hassan: He said he was 'just looking for a good time.'

Rick: [trying to pack Evelyn's things into a suitcase but as he's packing, she's taking her things back out again] I thought you said you didn't believe in all this fairy tales and hokum stuff!
Evelyn: Well, having an encounter with a three thousand year old walking, talking corpse does tend to convert one.
Rick: Forget it! We're out the door, we're down the hall, and we're gone.
Evelyn: Oh no we are not!
Rick: Oh yes we are!
Evelyn: Oh no we are not! We woke him up and we are going stop him!
Rick: We? What 'we'? We didn't read that book, I told you not to play around with that thing, didn't I tell you not to play around with that thing?
Evelyn: Yes, that's right, me, me, me, me, I, I, I woke him up and I intend to stop him.
Rick: Oh yeah? How? You heard the man, no mortal weapons can kill this guy
Evelyn: Then we're just going to have to find some immortal ones!
Rick: There goes that 'we' again, y'know I wonder if-
[Evelyn slams the suitcase shut on Rick's fingers]
Rick: Ah!
Evelyn: Listen we've got to do something! Once the creature's been reborn his curse is going to spread until the whole of the earth is destroyed!
Rick: And is that my problem?
Evelyn: Well it is everybody's problem!
Rick: Evelyn, I appreciate you saving my life and all but when I signed on I agreed to take you out there and bring you back, end of job, end of story, contract terminated!
Evelyn: Oh, that's all I am to you, a contract?
Rick: Ok look, you can either tag along with me or stay here... and try to save the world! What's it gonna be?
Evelyn: I'm staying.
Rick: Fine!
Evelyn: Fine!
Rick: Fine.
Evelyn: Fine.
Rick: Fine.
[leaves and slams the door]
Evelyn: Ooh...

Evelyn: Keep him busy.
Rick: [being thrown against a pillar by Imhotep] No problem.

Evelyn: Have you no respect for the dead?
Jonathan: Of course I do, but sometimes I'd rather like to join them.
Evelyn: Well I wish you would do it sooner rather than later before you ruin my career the way you've ruined yours.

Evelyn: Where are they taking him?
Warden Gad Hassan: To be hanged. Apparently, he had a VERY good time.

Evelyn: There is only one person I know that can possibly give us any answers.
[sees Ardeth Bay]
Evelyn: You?
Dr. Bey: Miss Carnahan. Gentlemen.
[the men draw their guns and point them at Ardeth]
Evelyn: [about Ardeth] What is HE doing here?
Dr. Bey: Do you really want to know, or would you prefer to just shoot us?
Rick: After what I just saw, I'm willing to go on a little faith here.

Dr. Bey: [Imhotep, fully regenerated, and Beni, walks through the possessed male crowd towards Rick, Evelyn, Jonathan, Dr. Bey, and Ardeth] It's the creature. He's fully regenerated.
Imhotep: Keetah mi pharos aja nilo, isirian.
Beni: [translating] "Come with me, my princess. It is time to make you mine, forever."
Evelyn: [corrects Beni] "For all eternity," idiot.
Imhotep: Kootash de na... aja nilo.
Beni: [translating] "Take my hand and I will spare your friends."
[Rick scoffs]

Jonathan: [about a noise] What was that?
Rick: Sounds like... bugs.
Evelyn: [to the warden] He said 'bugs.'
Warden Gad Hassan: What do you mean bugs? I hate bugs!

Evelyn: [to Imhotep about his sand storm] Stop it! You'll kill them!
Beni: That's the idea.

Evelyn: [after the warden has died] What do you suppose killed him?
Jonathan: Did you ever see him eat?

Evelyn: Oh, for heaven's sake, girl! It wasn't that good of a kiss.

Evelyn: Mister O'Connell, can you look me in the eye, and guarantee me that this isn't all some kind of a flimflam?

Evelyn: I will give you one hundred pounds to save this man's life.
Warden Gad Hassan: Madame, I would pay one hundred pounds just to see him hang.
Evelyn: Two! Two hundred pounds!
Warden Gad Hassan: Proceed.
Evelyn: Three hundred pounds! Five hundred pounds!
Warden Gad Hassan: [looks at her] And what else?
[puts his hand on her thigh]
Warden Gad Hassan: I'm a very lonely man.

Evelyn: Oh my God it's a... it's a sarcophagus. Buried at the base of Anubis. He must have been someone of great importance. Or he did something *very* naughty.

Warden Gad Hassan: [Rick is hanging from the noose] Ha, ha! His neck did not break! Oh, I am so sorry. Now we must watch him strangle to death!
Evelyn: [after a pause] He knows the location to Hamunaptra.
Warden Gad Hassan: You lie!
Evelyn: I would never!
Warden Gad Hassan: Are you telling me this filthy, godless son of a pig knows where to find the city of the dead?
Evelyn: Yes.
Warden Gad Hassan: Truly?
Evelyn: Yes! And if you cut him down, we will give you... ten percent.
Warden Gad Hassan: Fifty percent.
Evelyn: Twenty!
Warden Gad Hassan: Forty!
Evelyn: Thirty!
Warden Gad Hassan: Twenty-five!
Evelyn: Ah! Deal!
Warden Gad Hassan: [giving in] Agh! Cut him down!

Beni: [translating for Imhotep] Come with me my princess and I will make you mine... forever.
Evelyn: "For all eternity." Idiot.

Evelyn: [upon inspecting the map to Hamunaptra] You see the cartouche there? It's the official royal seal of Seti I, I'm sure of it.
Jonathan: Two questions: Who the hell was Seti I? And was he rich?
Evelyn: He was the second pharaoh of the 19th dynasty, said to be the wealthiest pharaoh of them all.
Jonathan: That's good. I like this fellow. I like him very much.


The Mummy Returns (2001)
Rick: This is bad, Evy.
Evelyn: We've had bad before.
Rick: This is worse.

Evelyn: Jonathan.
Jonathan: Yes?
Evelyn: That's my husband and my son down there. Make me proud.
Jonathan: Today's that day, Evy.

Evelyn: No harm ever came from opening a chest
Rick: Yeah, right, and no harm ever came from reading a book. You remember how that one went?

Alex: Sucker weighs a goddang ton.
Evelyn: Alex, watch your language!
Alex: Rather weighty, this.

Rick: Okay, now you're starting to scare me.
Evelyn: Now I'm starting to scare myself.

Evelyn: Alex, I'm serious, if you've lost that key, you're grounded.
Alex: I haven't lost it, I just can't find it. There's a difference.

Izzy: [after their narrow escape, Izzy cheers wildly, then rounds on O'Connell]
[furious]
Izzy: O'Connell, you almost got me killed!
Rick: [shrugs weakly] At least you didn't get shot.
Evelyn: [Izzy is about to say more, when Evie grabs him and smothers his face with kisses] Izzy, thank you! Thank you!
Izzy: [considerably more mellow] O'Connell, who the hell you been messing with this time, huh?
Rick: Oh, you know, the usual. Mummies, pygmies, big bugs.

Rick: [talking about Alex] I swear that kid gets more and more like you every day.
Evelyn: You mean more attractive, sweet and devilishly charming?
Rick: No. He's driving me crazy.

Evelyn: Would you like to know what heaven looks like?
Rick: Later.

Rick: Thought I almost lost you.
Evelyn: For a moment there you did.
Evelyn: Do you want to know what heaven looks like?
Rick: Later.
Alex: Oh please!

Evelyn: [trying to convince Rick] That's why I love you.
Rick: Nice try.

Rick: Let me guess, it was commanded by this Scorpion King guy?
Evelyn: Yes, but he only awakens once every 5,000 years.
Rick: Right. And if someone doesn't kill him, then he's gonna wipe out the world.
Evelyn: How did you know?
Rick: I didn't, but that's always the story.
Evelyn: The last known expedition to actually reach Ahm Shere was sent by Ramses the Fourth over 3,000 years ago. He sent over a thousand men.
Rick: And none of them was ever seen again.
Evelyn: How did you know?
Rick: I didn't, but that's always the story.

Rick: Where the hell's Jonathon?
Evelyn: [Jonathon drives up in a double-decker bus] Alex.
Rick: What's the matter with my car?
Jonathan: Well, I was forced to find an alternative means of transportation.
Rick: A double-decker bus?
Jonathan: [pointing to Alex] It was his idea.
Alex: Was not!
Jonathan: Was too!
Rick: Just go!
Alex: Was not!
Jonathan: Was too!

Rick: [Evelyn has just kicked a poisonous snake towards Rick] Those are poisonous, you know.
Evelyn: Only if they bite you.

Evelyn: [to Imhotep] You wait! I'll put you in your grave again!
Baltus Hafez, the Curator: [to Evelyn] Our thinking was, not if we put you in your grave first.

Evelyn: Those knickers are not mine.

Evelyn: [Evie is trying to bribe Rick into checking out the Oasis of Ahm Shere] I think the bracelet is some sort of guide to the lost oasis of Ahm Shere.
Rick: Evy, I know what you're thinking and the answer is no. We just got home.
Evelyn: That's the beauty of it, we're already packed.
Rick: Why don't you just give me one good reason.
Evelyn: It's just an oasis. Darling. A beautiful, exciting, romantic oasis.
Rick: The kind with the white, sandy beach and the palm trees and the cool, clear, blue water and - we could have some of those big drinks with the little umbrellas.
Evelyn: Sounds good.
Rick: Sounds too good. What's the catch?
Evelyn: Supposedly it's the resting place of Anubis's army.
Rick: Ah, ya. see. I knew there's a catch. There's always a catch.

Evelyn: [about Ahm Shere] Alexander the Great sent troops in search of it.
Rick: Great for him.
Evelyn: So did Caesar.
Rick: Yeah, look what happened to his career.
Evelyn: And Napoleon.
Rick: Yeah, but, we're smarter than him. And taller, too.
Evelyn: Exactly. That's why we're the ones who are gonna find it.
Rick: Because we're taller?

Izzy: Remember that bank job in Marrakesh?
Evelyn: Bank job?
Rick: It's not like it sounds.
Izzy: Oh it's exactly how it sounds. I'm flying high, hiding in the sun, the white boy here flags me down so I fly in low for the pickup. The next thing I know, I get shot! I'm lying in the middle of the road with my spleen hangin' out and I see him waltzing up with some belly dancer girl.
Evelyn: Belly dancer girl? Izzy, I think you and I should talk.
Izzy: As long as I don't get shot.

Rick: Right, she's a reincarnated princess and I'm a warrior for God?
Ardeth Bay: And your son leads the way to Ahm Shere. Three sides of the pyramid. This was all preordained thousands of years ago.
Evelyn: But how does the story end?
Ardeth Bay: Only the journey is written, not the destination.
Rick: Convenient.

Meela: [as Evy and Meela square off] Nefertiri.
Evelyn: Anck-su-namun.
Meela: [smiles] Good.

Alex: [as Evy fights Imhotep's followers with a sword] Whoa, mom! When did you learn to do that?
Evelyn: [surprised look on her face] I have no idea.
[a thug grabs her by the throat and pushes her against the wall. She knees him in the groin, and decks him with a right hook]
Evelyn: That I learned from your father!

Rick: Have I kissed you today?
[does]
Rick: I hate it when you do that.
Rick: [grins] Why?
Evelyn: It makes me feel like agreeing to anything.
Rick: Anything?

Izzy: You're not exactly catching me at my best...
Evelyn: Oh... I'm sure I am.


The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008)
Evelyn O'Connell: [speaking of Rick fishing] At least you've got a hobby that doesn't involve guns.
[takes a bite of the fish]

Rick O'Connell: I. Really. Hate. Mummies.
Evelyn O'Connell: I think the feeling is mutual.

Evelyn O'Connell: What is that god awful smell?
Jonathan Carnahan: [covered in puke] The Yak yakked.

Jonathan Carnahan: [during a chase scene] Where's Rick?
Evelyn O'Connell: Where do you think?

Woman in Bookstore: [This dialog - in an apparent nod and wink to the change of actress for the character from prior films in "The Mummy" series - accompanies the first appearance of Evelyn O'Connell] Mrs. O'Connell, is it true that the Scarlet O' Kiefe character is based on you?
Evelyn O'Connell: No. I can honestly say she is a completely different person.
[... as the camera reveals her face to show that it is Maria Bello - not Rachel Weisz - playing the role]

Rick O'Connell: Alex? TURNS AROUND TO SEE ALEX IS GONE. Where'd he go?
Evelyn O'Connell: Where do you think?
Rick O'Connell: LOOKS THROUGH BINOCULARS TO SEE ALEX RUNNING THROUGH TENTS TO FIND LIN.

Rick O'Connell: ARROW PIERCES HIS BLUE T-SHIRT SLEEVE AND WEDGES INTO A ROCK. Hey, that was my favorite blue shirt.
Evelyn O'Connell: REMOVES THE ARROW FROM THE ROCK & THROWS IT ASIDE. I've always hated that shirt.

Evelyn O'Connell: [TALKING ABOUT LIN] She's certainly managed to enchant you. Come on Alex, you obviously like her.
Alex O'Connell: Mom, the thin mountain air is clearly messing with your head.

Evelyn O'Connell: [TAKES BREAK FROM KILLING UNDEAD ARMY] Any regrets darling?
Rick O'Connell: None. Not ever.

Evelyn O'Connell: There's something incredibly romantic about vanquishing the undead.

Evelyn O'Connell: Kiss me.
Rick O'Connell: You don't have to ask me twice.
[KISSES EVELYN]

Evelyn O'Connell: I'm sorry we haven't been properly introduced. Who are you exactly?
Lin: My name is Lin. My family has watched over the Emperors tomb for centuries. The Emperor cannot be killed unless he is stabbed through the heart with this.
[draws dagger]
Lin: My mother put a curse on it long ago.
Evelyn O'Connell: [nods, smiling] . Mmm-hmm.

Evelyn O'Connell: Whatever secrets she's hiding, I just don't want to see you get hurt.
Alex O'Connell: I appreciate that, but you know I've had my fair share experiences with the opposite sex.
Evelyn O'Connell: Really? Uhh, how many experiences are we talking about?
Alex O'Connell: Uhh well... uhh you shouldn't ask questions you don't want to know the answer to okay, Mom?
Evelyn O'Connell: Right.


The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) (VG)
Evelyn O'Connell: Hurry Rick, Alex needs our help!
