Mirrormask (2005)
Valentine: I'm an important person you see. I have a tower, a wonderful tower it was, tall and grand.
Helena: Are you?
Valentine: Of course.
Helena: Where is your tower then?
Valentine: We aren't talking... We had an argument, you see.

Helena: [Trying to summon Valentine's tower to stop from being consumed by shadow swarm] You know, sometimes it helps to apologize to others, even if it isn't your fault.
Valentine: I'M SORRY.

[repeated line]
Valentine: I am a very important man. I've got a tower.

Helena: If I tell you something weird... will you think I'm crazy?
Valentine: Yes. I expect so.

Valentine: We often confuse what we wish for with what is.

Valentine: That's not my future... NO! I don't want to be a waiter!

Valentine: [unable to directly say "I'm sorry"] If I were to say something apologetic it would reflect my feelings in this matter.

Valentine: Right... this is where I stop.
Helena: Giants Orbiting?
Valentine: Sounds a bit iffy, doesn't it? I'll be here when you get back. If you get back.

Helena: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Valentine: Absolutely. If we put little wheels on the bottoms of our shoes, we could just roll around everywhere...

Valentine: You're hurt. Wait here.
Helena: What about you?
Valentine: Oh, I'm a panther. I shall slip unnoticed through the darkness... like a dark, unnoticeable slippy thing.

Gryphon: [playing at riddles - if you've got it you can't share it, if you've shared it you haven't got it - with Valentine] What's the answer?
Valentine: It's a secret.
Gryphon: Yes, I know that, but what's the answer?
Valentine: It's a secret!
[points in a different direction]
Valentine: Look! An idiot!
Gryphon: Where?

Helena: You pathetic creep!
Valentine: Rocks and logs can bite like dogs, but words will never hurt me!

Helena: You useless, cake-hogging coward!
Valentine: I did not hog that cake!

Valentine: My mum always said: "It's a dog-eat-dog world, son. You get them before they get you. Eat your greens. Stop embarrassing me in front of the neighbors. Maybe it would best if you leave home and never come back!"
[pause]
Valentine: She wasn't even my real mum. She bought me from a man.

Valentine: Run. Faster. Don't let anything distract you. FOOD.

Valentine: The answer to my riddle's still a secret.

Valentine: What the hell have you got on your feet? Is that some kind of sick joke? Going around on little rabbit-like animals with every step? That's just... nasty.

Valentine: This place is ready to collapse into a heap of rubble. It can't be safe.
Helena: You're such a coward. It's perfectly- WAAAAHH!
[she falls through a hole in the floor]
Valentine: [looking down the hole] Coward, eh? I prefer to think of myself as... Prudent. Cautious. And unlike some people I could mention, STILL UP HERE!

Valentine: What did you say your name was?
Helena: Helena.
Valentine: Helena. Helen. Helen-nun-nuh... it's a bit drab, isn't it? You know, you should think about changing that. Go for something with a bit of dignity and style, mixed with a bit of romance. Something like... 'Valentine'.
Helena: Why? What's your name?
Valentine: Valentine.

Valentine: No no no, it's really gotta feel like it's being rejected. Grr, horrible, offensive, badly constructed book.
[flies away on book]
Helena: Right, umm... Nasty... Poorly paced book, with a soppy ending that I didn't believe in FOR ONE MINUTE!
[flies after Valentine]

[last lines]
Valentine: You know, I've always wanted to work in the circus.
Helena: Um, good. You'd have made a lousy waiter.
[laughing]
Valentine: [laughing] Yeah... What?
