Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)
Jen Yu: Who are you?
Gou Jun Pei: I'm Shining Phoenix Mountain Gou.
Jen Yu: Gou? A name I abhor. When I hear it, my ears start to ache. I feel like vomiting!
[Rising from the table]
Jen Yu: And suddenly I cannot hold back my sword hand's anger!

Lo: All this trouble for a comb?
Jen Yu: It's mine. It means a lot to me. A barbarian like you wouldn't understand.
Lo: I can use it to pick fleas from my horse.

Jen Yu: [while slicing through customers at a local restaurant] You want to know who I am? I am... I am the Invincible Sword Goddess, armed with the Green Destiny that knows no equal! Be you Li or Southern Crane, bow your head and ask for mercy! I am the dragon from the desert! Who comes from nowhere and leaves no trace! Today I fly over Eu-Mei. Tomorrow... I topple Mount Wudan!

Gangster A: You don't seem to understand.
Jen Yu: So what if I don't?
Gangster B: [raising weapons along with his partner] We have ways of making you understand...

Waiter: Follow me.
Jen Yu: I want a clean room.
Waiter: We have plenty... Your order?
Jen Yu: Steamed whole cod, bite-size meatballs, a little starchy but keep the sauce light, shark fin soup, mixed vegetables and some warm wine.
Waiter: We only have one chef.
Jen Yu: Then get him started.

Jen Yu: Make a wish, Lo.

Jen Yu: It must exciting to be a fighter, to be totally free.
Yu Shu Lien: Fighters have rules, too. Friendship, trust, integrity. Always keep your promise. Without rules we wouldn't survive long.

Jen Yu: I'm getting married soon, but I haven't lived the life I want.
Yu Shu Lien: So I heard. Congratulations.

Yu Shu Lien: It's a great fortune to marry into such a noble family.
Jen Yu: Is it? Actually, I like the great heroes in the books... just like you and Li Mu Bai. Marriage is a good thing. If only I could be free to live my own life... to choose who I love and love him in my own way. That's real happiness.

Jen Yu: Why do you want to teach me?
Li Mu Bai: I've always wanted a disciple worthy of the Wudang secrets.

Jen Yu: How long would you last as my enemy?

Jen Yu: Who am I?

Li Mu Bai: You need practice. I can teach you to fight with the Green Destiny, but first you must learn to hold it in stillness.
Jen Yu: Why do you want to teach me?
Li Mu Bai: I've always wanted a disciple worthy of Wudan's secrets.
Jen Yu: And if I use them to kill you?
Li Mu Bai: That's a risk I'm willing to take. Deep down you're good. Even Jade Fox couldn't corrupt you.
