Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler (1922)
Prosecutor von Wenk: [On the phone] This is Prosecutor von Wenk! Dr. Mabuse, I ask you to offer no resistance against the state authorities and turn yourself in.
Dr. Mabuse: I feel like a state within a state with which I have always been at war! If you want me, come and get me!
Prosecutor von Wenk: We are prepared to move against you using the harshest measures. Give up your senseless resistance!

Countess Dusy Told: I have learned of something that until recently I didn't believe, that there still apparently exists in this world something more valuable and more deeply moving than the strongest thrill. Love , , ,

Dr. Mabuse: About to make a fuss, you swine? What am I paying you for, if at the first opportunity you flounder like schoolgirls?

Countess Dusy Told: I'm afraid there's absolutely nothing in this world that can hold my interest in the long run. Everything that can be observed from a car, from a theater box or from the window, is part repulsive, part uninteresting, and, at least, boring.

Dr. Mabuse: I'll give you one more week for Wenk, so you can get the job done right, but not one minute longer.

Dr. Mabuse: The woman. That woman!

Dr. Mabuse: Now the world shall learn who I am! I, Mabuse! I will become a giant, a titan who scatters the gods and the laws into a swirl like withered leaves!

Dr. Mabuse: [Posing as Sandor Weltmann] Ladies and Gentlemen, I would now like to demonstrate for you one of the most typical cases of mass suggestion, which is not unlike the tricks of the Indian Fakirs which arise from it.

Georg, the Chauffeur: We can't go out. The police have the house surrounded!
Dr. Mabuse: Then it's war!

Dr. Mabuse: [Repeated line] TSI-NAN-FU-!


The Last Will of Dr. Mabuse (1933)

The Testament of Dr. Mabuse (1933)
Dr. Mabuse: The ultimate purpose of crime is to establish the endless empire of crime. A state of complete insecurity and anarchy, founded upon the tainted ideals of a world doomed to annihilation. When humanity, subjugated by the terror of crime, has been driven insane by fear and horror, and when chaos has become supreme law, then the time will have come for the empire of crime.
