Event Horizon (1997)
Miller: Weir?
Dr. Weir: [laughing] The ship brought me back. I told you she won't let me leave - she won't let anyone leave. Did you really think you could destroy this ship? She's defied space and time. She's been to a place you couldn't possibly imagine. And now... it is time to go back.
Miller: [sounding bored] I know. To hell.
Dr. Weir: You know nothing. Hell is only a word. The reality is much, much worse.

Dr. Weir: You can't leave. She won't let you.

Miller: Oh. My. God. What happened to your eyes?
Dr. Weir: Where we're going, we won't need eyes to see.
Miller: What are you talking about?
Dr. Weir: I created the Event Horizon to reach the stars, but she's gone much, much farther than that. She tore a hole in our universe, a gateway to another dimension. A dimension of pure chaos. Pure... evil. When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was alive! Look at her, Miller. Isn't she beautiful?
Miller: Your "beautiful" ship killed its crew, Doctor.
Dr. Weir: Well... now she has another crew. Now she has us.

Miller: Smitty have you seen... anything unusual at all?
Smith: No, I haven't seen anything and I don't need to see anything sir but I can tell you... this ship is fucked.
Dr. Weir: Well, thank you for that scientific analysis, Mr Smith.
[smirks]
Smith: Yeah, well you don't exactly have to be a scientist to figure it out, do ya?
[grabs Dr. Weir by his uniform]
Miller: [pulls Smith away] All right, all right!
Smith: You break all the laws of physics and you seriously think there wouldn't be a price? You went and killed the last fucking crew, and now you wanna kill us as well!

Miller: Vacate! I want off this ship!
Dr. Weir: You can't leave. She won't let you.
Miller: You just get your gear and get back on the Lewis and Clark, Doctor, or you'll find yourself walkin' home.
Dr. Weir: I am home.

Rescue 1 Technician: It's all right. It's all right. They're with us. They're with us.
[the rescue guy flips open his visor - to reveal the face of Dr. Weir!]
Dr. Weir: You're with us.
[Starck starts screaming as she completely loses it]

Dr. Weir: [describing how the Event Horizon functions] The ship doesn't really go faster than light; what it does is it creates a dimensional gateway that allows it to jump instantaneously from one point of the universe to another light years away.
Lt. Starck, Executive Officer: How?
Dr. Weir: [stammering] Well, that's - that's difficult to - it's all math...
Miller: Try us, Doctor.
Dr. Weir: Right. Well, um, using layman's terms... Use a retaining magnetic field to focus a narrow beam of gravitons - these, in turn, fold space-time consistent with Weyl tensor dynamics until the space-time curvature becomes infinitely large, and you produce a singularity. Now, the singularity...
Miller: [interrupting] "Layman's terms"?
Cooper: Well, fuck layman's terms! Do you speak English?

Dr. Weir: Our orders were specific!
Miller: Rescue the crew, salvage what's left of the ship. The crew is dead, doctor. Your ship killed them.

Miller: You miss me, you blow out the hull.
Dr Weir: What makes you think I'll miss?

[Dr. Weir is protesting the abandonment of his ship]
Dr. Weir: Captain... don't do this.
Capt. Miller: It's done.
Dr. Weir: What about my ship? You can't just leave her!
Capt. Miller: I have no intention of leaving her, Doctor. I will take the Lewis and Clark to a safe distance, and then I will launch TAC missiles at the Event Horizon until I'm satisfied she's vaporized. Fuck this ship!

Dr. Weir: What was made public about the Event Horizon - that she was a deep space research vessel, that her reactor went critical, and that the ship blew up - none of that is true. The Event Horizon is the culmination of a secret government project to create a spacecraft capable of faster-than-light flight.
Smith: Uhm, excuse me. See, you can't actually do that.

Dr. Weir: Where we're going... we don't need eyes to see!

Miller: You said "The ships drive creates a gateway."
Dr. Weir: Yes.
Miller: To what?

Dr. Weir: You are all coming with me!

Dr. Weir: Do you see?
[shows Miller the tormenting of his crew]
Dr. Weir: Do you see?
Miller: [gets the detonator] Yes, I see.
[He activates the explosives]
