The Runaways (2010)
Marie Currie: You took Mom's black heels?
Cherie Currie: Like, she's ever worn anything twice? Anyway, you should be more worried about her finding out about how old your skanky boyfriend is.
Marie Currie: I'm sorry. Does your boyfriend have a car? I'm sorry, do you even have a boyfriend?

Marie Currie: Mom's gonna kill you. It really looks terrible.
Cherie Currie: Good.

Marie Currie: You know how many new bands think they're gonna make it?
Cherie Currie: Kim thinks we got a real shot.
Marie Currie: Kim Fowley? That guy's a total creep. Seriously, I heard he has a coat made out of dog fur.
Cherie Currie: Well, excuse me if I don't wanna work at the Pup 'n' Fry for the rest of my life.

Cherie's Mom: Places everybody! Places! Come quickly, I have the most wonderful news!
Marie Currie: What's all the commotion about?
Cherie's Mom: Well, we're moving to Indonesia!
Marie Currie: What? What do you mean?
Cherie Currie: What do you mean, "we"?
Marie Currie: You're leaving? You're leaving us?
Cherie's Mom: No. No. Nobody's leaving anybody! We're a family. We'll always be a family. This is just something that we have to do right now.
Cherie Currie: Why?
Cherie's Mom: Wolfgang and I are getting married and, and he lives in Indonesia. You girls are welcome to come along. I've spoken to your father and he says you're more than welcome to stay with him at Aunt Evie's.
Cherie Currie: Well, where exactly are we gonna sleep at Aunt Evie's?
Cherie's Mom: He bought you a brand new sleeper sofa. Top of the line! It's really not that bad.
Cherie Currie: Why can't we at least just stay here?
Cherie's Mom: Because you're 15 years old. Just calm down. This is a transition, not a tragedy. We're all gonna be fine!
Cherie Currie: Stop saying "we". There's obviously no "we" there's a "you". There hasn't been a "we" since you kicked Dad out for leaving water rings on the furniture!

Cherie Currie: Oh, coming from the actress. Places, places everyone!

Marie Currie: Dad. He's sick. You gotta come home, okay? Turn the music down.

Madame Curie (1943)
Marie Curie: To catch a star on your fingertips.

[last lines]
[Madame Curie addresses a large gathering of scientists]
Marie Curie: Even now, after twenty-five years of intensive research, we feel there is a great deal still to be done. We have made many discoveries. Pierre Curie and the suggestions we have found in his notes, and his thoughts he expressed to me have helped to guide us to them. But no one of us can do much. Yet, each of us, perhaps, can catch some gleam of knowledge which, modest and insufficient of itself, may add to man's dream of truth. It is by these small candles in our darkness that we see before us, little by little, the dim outline of that great plan that shapes the universe. And I am among those who think that for this reason, science has great beauty and, with its great spiritual strength, will in time cleanse this world of its evils, its ignorance, its poverty, diseases, wars, and heartaches. Look for the clear light of truth. Look for unknown, new roads. Even when man's sight is keener far than now, divine wonder will never fail him. Every age has its own dreams. Leave, then, the dreams of yesterday. Youth, take the torch of knowledge and build the palace of the future.

Young Einstein (1988)
Albert Einstein: That's it! That's the theory of relativity! Light travels to us from the hands of the clock, to tell us the time. But, if we were to travel away from the clock at the speed of light...
Marie Curie: The hands of the clock would appear to have stopped!
Albert Einstein: Time would stand still! This moment *would* last forever.

Brian Asprin: [Scientists in Australia are listening to Einstein playing Rock and Roll music on the radio] That's Albert's music.
Lunatic Professor: Yes, crikey yes! That's 4/4 time.
Ernest Rutherford: 4/4 time; that'll drain the power out of anything.
Marie Curie: [Scene returns to the Academy of science in France, Einstein continues to play the electric guitar, the 'Extreme Danger' warning light on the bomb flashes then goes out, the 'Overload' warning light starts flashing showing that the bomb is been drained of its energy] It's working. Whatever you are doing keep doing it, it's working!
