Scanners (1981)
Cameron Vale: You called me a scanner. What is that?
Paul Ruth: Freak of nature, born with a certain form of ESP; derangement of the synapses which we call telepathy.

Paul Ruth: How do you feel?
Cameron: I feel... crystal clear.

Paul Ruth: You are 35 years old, Mr. Vale. Why are you such a derelict? Such a piece of human junk?
Paul Ruth: [pause] The answer's simple. You're a scanner, which you don't realize. And that has been the source of all your agony. But I will show you now that it can be a source of great power.

Paul Ruth: I want you to access the Ripe program. I do not have ConSec computer clearance.
Cameron Vale: Neither do I.
Paul Ruth: But you do have a nervous system. And so does a computer. And you can scan a computer, as you would another human being.
