Waiting for Godot (2001)
[first lines]
Estragon: [struggles to remove his boot and fails] Nothing to be done.
Vladimir: I'm beginning to come round to that opinion. All my life I've tried to put it from me, saying Vladimir, be reasonable, you haven't yet tried everything. And I resumed the struggle.
[to Estragon]
Vladimir: So there you are again.
Estragon: Am I?
Vladimir: I'm glad to see you back. I thought you were gone forever.
Estragon: Me too.
Vladimir: Together again at last! We'll have to celebrate this. But how? Get up till I embrace you.
Estragon: Not now, not now.
Vladimir: May one inquire where His Highness spent the night?
Estragon: In a ditch.
Vladimir: A ditch! Where?
Estragon: Over there.
Vladimir: And they didn't beat you?
Estragon: Beat me? Certainly they beat me.
Vladimir: The same lot as usual?
Estragon: The same? I don't know.
Vladimir: When I think of it all these years but for me... where would you be? You'd be nothing more than a little heap of bones at the present minute, no doubt about it.
Estragon: And what of it?
Vladimir: It's too much for one man.

Estragon: We're all born mad. Some remain so.

Estragon: Didi?
Vladimir: Yes.
Estragon: I can't go on like this.
Vladimir: That's what you think.
Estragon: If we parted? It might be better for us.
Vladimir: We'll hang ourselves tomorrow. Unless Godot comes.
Estragon: And if he comes?
Vladimir: We'll be saved.

[last lines]
Vladimir: Well? Shall we go?
Estragon: Yes, let's go.
[they do not move]

Estragon: We might try him with other names.
Vladimir: I'm afraid he's dying.
Estragon: It'd be amusing.
Vladimir: What'd be amusing?
Estragon: To try him with other names, one after the other. It'd pass the time. And we'd be bound to hit on the right one sooner or later.

Estragon: Sweet mother earth!

Vladimir: You should have been a poet.
Estragon: I was, isn't that obvious?
