Wishmaster (1997)
Alexandra Amberson: If there's no hope, no magic, I'll have to rely on myself.
Djinn: [as Wendy] Match wits with a creature older than time? Match wits with a prince of the dark dominions? Pit your tiny twentieth century mind against one who walked the spaces between the worlds, and trod the wings of angels beneath his conquering feet? Alexandra, you're a delight! Really, you are.

Beaumont: My God!
Djinn: Not yet, human. Soon... very soon I will be.

Djinn: Do you have any idea how frustrating it is to have unlimited power, and only be able to use it when some worm asks you for something?
Merritt's Guard: No, I can't say that I do. I can't say that I give a shit, either.

Djinn: My patience wears thin.
Alexandra Amberson: What are you going to do, kill me? Where's your third wish then?
Djinn: I don't need you dead, Alexandra. I just need you to wish you were.

Djinn: Run, insect. Run and tell those you will, what you will. Tell them there is something loose in their city which feeds on wishes. But tell them quickly, while you still have a soul.

Alexandra Amberson: What happens if I wished you dead?
The Djinn: Why, how remarkably original of you, Alexandra. I'll tell you what. I'll give you one free wish. A sample. Just to get you in the spirit of the game.
Alexandra Amberson: All right. I want you to destroy yourself. Blow your brains out. Right now
The Djinn: Very well.
[He picks up a gun, presses it under his chin, and pulls the trigger, blowing off the top of his head]
The Djinn: [wound heals instantly, surprising Alexandra] That which is eternal cannot die. But if it's any consolation sweet Alex, THAT HURT LIKE HELL!

Alexandra Amberson: Where's Wendy?
The Djinn: Bedroom. But I wouldn't go in there if I were you. Messy. I needed her face.
Alexandra Amberson: You killed her.
The Djinn: Actually, I can't kill anyone. Not unless they wish me to. Your research should have told you that.
Alexandra Amberson: She didn't wish to be dead, you lying sack of shit!
The Djinn: I showed her my true face. Her reaction wasn't very flattering. As a matter of fact, she got downright hysterical! I merely asked if she wished to be released from her fear. You're a dangerous person to know, Alexandra. Your scientist friend, your boss, the policeman, Wendy. By the by-where is that tasty little sister of yours today?
[licks upper lip slowly]

The Djinn: Going my way?

Djinn: You wish to know what I am? To you, I am this: The cry of the abandoned child. The whimper of the whipped beast. I am the face that stares back at you from the shadows of your mirror. The hollowness at the heart of all your hopes, Alexandra. I AM DESPAIR.

Djinn: Listen to their screams, child, listen to the music of their agony.

The Djinn: So, how do you like me so far?

The Djinn: We have unfinished business.
Alexandra Amberson: It's gonna stay unfinished!

The Djinn: I claim that which is owed.

Alexandra Amberson: If you harm Shannon, I'll kill you.
Djinn: [showing Alexandra his Djinn form] Spare me child. Behold my true face
Alexandra Amberson: [scared] Oh my God.
Djinn: Yes. The shit just... hit the fan, didn't it?

Djinn: [referring to the curses the homeless man shouted] What would you do to have them come true?
Homeless Man: Cigarette and a handshake's about all I got, pal.
Djinn: Not quite. You have a soul.
Homeless Man: That I'd trade for a shower and a jug of jack.
Djinn: Then the death of your enemy you would consider a bargain?

Djinn: Where is Alexandra?
Nick Merritt: Uh, well I'm sorry, but I don't really feel comfortable telling you.
Djinn: What would make you comfortable, Nick? Name it.
Nick Merritt: What's my limit?
Djinn: Your imagination.

[after the end credits roll]
Djinn: Careful what you wish for.

Nathaniel Demerest: Step aside, doorman.
Johnny Valentine: Doorman? The name is Valentine. Johnny Valentine. You'd better remember when they ask you how you lost your eye!

[after encasing Johnny Valentine in a steel-and-glass box filled with water, with Valentine in a straitjacket]
Nathaniel Demerest: Houdini did it in two and a half minutes.
[calmly walks up the steps and into Beaumont's party]


Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies (1999) (V)
[Looking around his personal Hell dimension]
Djinn: All right. I understand. You've had a tough day. I can see how this could get a little depressing in here, couldn't it? This place isn't exactly happy.

Gregory: You won't succeed.
Djinn: Who's going to stop me?
Gregory: God will stop you.
Djinn: God has nothing to do with this.
Gregory: God has everything to do with this. Be gone, Satan!
Djinn: I think you have your demons mixed up, Father.

Tillover: How does a week in the hole sound?
Djinn: A week, is that the best you got? I was once in a hole for 3000 years, this should be a breeze.

Gries: What do you want?
Djinn: Your soul.
[pause]
Djinn: And a pack of cigarettes.

Djinn: I claim that which is owed.

Djinn: Evil never dies.

Djinn: Welcome to my world, Morgana.
Morgana: Where's Gregory?
Djinn: Where's he's always wanted to be. Behold the man.
[points to crucified Gregory]
Djinn: What good is your faith now?
