Metropolis (2001)
Tima: I am who?

Tima: My father is... Kenichi.

Tima: [Tima has just discovered that she is a robot, not a human] I am an artificial human. A machine created to conquer the world and destroy it.

Tima: [Tima is going to destroy the world] This is punishment for toying with robots.

Tima: The probability of mankind's survival will be 30% in one hour. Control of the Ziggurat is now being transferred to my operating system. All supplemental Earth weaponry will be activated from my network in 30 minutes. Attack targets are the world's major cities and 7,586 additional facilities. Destruction of the human race will begin through irradiation and use of multiple weapon systems. This will be complete in 17 hours, 27 minutes.
Ban Syunsaku : Hige-Oyaji: Did you hear that, Duke Red? The superhuman you created is saying it doesn't need us anymore.


Metropolis (1927)
Maria: HEAD and HANDS need a mediator. THE MEDIATOR BETWEEN HEAD AND HANDS MUST BE THE HEART!
Worker #1: But where is our mediator, Maria - ?
Maria: Wait for him! He will surely come!
Worker #2: We will wait, Maria...! But not much longer - - !

Maria: Today I will tell you the legend of THE TOWER OF BABEL... "Come, let us build us a tower whose top may reach unto the stars! And the top of the tower we will write the words: Great is the world and its Creator! And great is Man!" But the minds that had conceived the Tower of Babel could not build it. The task was too great. So they hired hands for wages. But the hands that built the Tower of Babel knew nothing of the dream of the brain that had conceived it. BABEL. BABEL. BABEL. BABEL. One man's hymns of praise became other men's curses. People spoke the same language, but could not understand each other...

Maria: Look! These are your brothers! Look - ! These are your brothers!

Maria: Oh mediator, have you finally come?
Freder: You called me - - here I am!
