Jack the Giant Slayer (2013)
Jack: Am I dead?
Elmont: Not just yet.

Elmont: Fear of heights?
Jack: Fear of falling.
Elmont: Well then don't fall!

Jack: There's something behind me, isn't there?

Isabelle: [Jack arrives to rescue her from the giants] You're here!
Jack: You sound surprised.
Isabelle: Yeah, well, we're miles up and you're afraid of heights.
Jack: I'm not afraid. Just not wildly keen.

Uncle: [p.o.'d at his nephew for the 'goods' received in trade for his horse] ... I don't ask for much... In return for all those years I put food in your belly; clothes on your back; a roof over your head... So what do I have to show for it?... Beans!
Jack: I'll, I'll take them to The Abbey tomorrow and we'll tell the monks what happened!
Uncle: You believe that story?
Jack: I mean, he was a monk!
Uncle: -Cuz he wore a robe... funny haircut?

Isabelle: Is this your farm?
Jack: Yes. No. Sort of. My uncle and I are tenant partners. We just work the lands.
Isabelle: And, uh, these books?
Jack: Yeah, they... they're mine.
Isabelle: It's unusual for a farm boy.
Jack: Judging by the cover, are we?
Isabelle: What do you like reading?
Jack: I like a good adventure.
Isabelle: In books or in life?
Jack: Until I can find a way to get off this farm, I have to settle for books.
Isabelle: And, uh, that mark on your face, was that an adventure?
Jack: Um, I got in a fight today. At the market.
Isabelle: What about?
Jack: I was defending the honor of the princess.
Isabelle: Princess? Really? You sure you didn't read that in one of your books? How did you know it was the princess?
Jack: I didn't. I just saw she needed help. It wasn't until the guardians showed up that I realized who she was. Anyway, it happened really fast. I wouldn't blame her if she didn't remember me. What are you running away from?
Isabelle: Who says I'm running away from anything? Maybe I'm running toward something. Just looking for an adventure of my own.
Jack: Well, so far you've run toward the light on my porch... Your Highness.

Isabelle: You must think I'm very silly.
Jack: No. I just wish that... Well, earlier, at the market...
Isabelle: Thank you... for defending my honor, Jack.
Jack: Anytime. Here, I'll take your coat. And until you find your own adventure...
Isabelle: [receives a book from Jack] "The Giants of Gantua."
Jack: My father used to read that to me.
Isabelle: That was always my mother's job.
Jack: I hope you find what you're looking for, Your Highness.
Isabelle: Call me Isabelle.
Jack: Isabelle.

Elmont: Well, she's not in the house. This is the only other place she could have gone.
Crawe: If she climbed down, we would have seen her.
Elmont: [notices a footprint in the mud] She didn't climb down. She climbed up.
Roderick: Why would she do that?
Crawe: If she were cold.
Elmont: Or hungry.
Jack: [to himself] Or looking for an adventure.

Isabelle: If I hadn't run away, none of this would have happened. A princess is such a useless thing.
Jack: If you hadn't run away, Roderick would have taken over the kingdom with no warning. Your running away just might have give Cloister a fighting chance. So no one's useless, least of all the princess. That's why we need to get you back, because one day you'll be the queen. From then on you'll have the power to make the world a better place. Isabelle... imagine all the good things you could do.
Isabelle: [touched] That's what my mother used to say.

Jack: I've got an idea.
Elmont: What?
Jack: I'm gonna wake a sleeping giant.
Elmont: Well, that doesn't seem like a good idea.

Elmont: This is a terrible idea.
Jack: Have you ever killed a giant before?
Elmont: And you've killed, what, one? Which makes you an expert now?

Isabelle: You know, for someone who's not wildly keen on heights, you're doing awfully well.
Jack: Yeah, I've been doing a little trick Crawe taught me.
Isabelle: What's the trick?
Jack: Picture something just ahead of you within arm's reach.
[helps Isabelle down so she is within arm's reach]
Jack: Something that makes you happy.
Isabelle: Sounds easy enough.
Jack: It really is.

Jack: Isabelle, hold on tight.
[grabs a liana he has cut in the giant tree]
Jack: Ready?
Isabelle: No...
Jack: JUMP!
[they jump from the falling tree, hanging on to the liana. They swing around the tree before the tree begins to fall alarmingly fast and they are headed for the ground]
Isabelle: Jack, hold me!
[Jack sees a haystack, aims for it and lets go. They hit it, but keep gliding forward in the mud, heading for a sharp farm object. They stop just in the nick of time for hitting it]
Jack: Well, that worked out better than I expected.

Jack: Matching armor. Nice. You look beautiful.
Isabelle: Thank you.
Jack: They're waiting for you. But...
[Jack grabs his book from his pocket and gives it to Isabelle]
Jack: To remember me by.
[Isabelle looks at it, but does not take it]
Isabelle: I won't need any help remembering.

Jack: [inside the enormous castle hall] It's just like my place.

Jack: [singing] I fear nothing when I am in the right / Whoever pushes me around will find me full of fight.

Jack: [about the Princess] We gotta save her.
Mr. Dinkelpuss: You're right.
Jack: There's the castle. Let's go.
Mr. Dinkelpuss: Come on. What am I doing? Go ahead.

The Giant: You numbskull! I can't eat, you ruined my appetite.
Jack: Oh Mr Giant, you should eat something.
The Giant: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Jack: No, no,
The Giant: Oh yeah.
Jack: Oh no, no. Mr. Dinkelpuss! Mr. Dinkelpuss!

Jack: [to Receptionist] I like girls like you, eyes of blue and five feet two.

[repeated line]
Jack: Mr. Dinkelpuss!

[last lines]
Jack Strong: [singing] I fear nothing when I do nothing wrong / And so I toddle on my way and sing a merry song.

Jack: I've been a baby all my life.

Jeremy Keen, Proprietor: Well, it's an old saying: love laughs at locksmiths.

Jeremy Keen, Proprietor: You will when you grow up.

The Giant: And who might you be, tiny one?

The roof, the house, and your mother at the door.The roof, the house, and the world you'd never thought to explore. And you think of all of the things you'd seen. And you wish that you could live in-between. And you're back again, only different than before.
