The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976)
Thomas Jerome Newton: Well I'm not a scientist. But I know all things begin and end in eternity.
Waiter: I think maybe Mr. Newton has had enough, don't you?
Nathan Bryce: I think maybe, he has.
Thomas Jerome Newton: Ah.
Thomas Jerome Newton: We'd have probably done the same to you, if you'd come 'round our place.
Mary-Lou: You know Tommy, you're a freak. I don't mean that unkindly. I like freaks. And that's why I like you.
Thomas Jerome Newton: Television. The strange thing about television is that it - doesn't *tell* you everything. It *shows* you everything about life on Earth, but the true mysteries remain. Perhaps it's in the nature of television. Just waves in space.
Thomas Jerome Newton: Ask me...
Nathan Bryce: What?
Thomas Jerome Newton: The question you've been wanting to ask ever since we met.
Nathan Bryce: Are you Lithuanian?
Thomas Jerome Newton: [grins] I come from England.
Nathan Bryce: Ah, that's not so terrible.
Oliver Farnsworth: My father used to say "Oliver, when you get a gift horse, walk up to it, pat it, quiet the animal down and then using both hands force open it's jaws and have a damn good look in it's mouth."
Trevor: I'd say that was good advice
Oliver Farnsworth: Yes, but my father was always wrong!
Mary-Lou: What are they like, your children?
Thomas Jerome Newton: They're like children. Exactly like children...
Jewelery Store Owner: Can I help?
Thomas Jerome Newton: I'm sorry. I want to sell this ring.
Jewelery Store Owner: [looks it over] Where'd you get it from?
Thomas Jerome Newton: My wife gave it to me. You see it has initials.
Jewelery Store Owner: [reads] T.J.N. Do you have any I.D.?
Thomas Jerome Newton: I'm British, I have a passport.
[shows it to her]
Jewelery Store Owner: [reads] Thomas Jerome Newton. This is not a pawn shop, Mr. Newton.
Thomas Jerome Newton: I beg your pardon?
Jewelery Store Owner: If you sell it to me now, you can't redeem it later.
Thomas Jerome Newton: I understand.
Jewelery Store Owner: $20.
Thomas Jerome Newton: $20?
Thomas Jerome Newton: If I stay, I'll die.
Mary-Lou: What're you talking about? Take me with you, I'll see you don't die.
Thomas Jerome Newton: I can't stay.
[walks away from her]
Mary-Lou: You're an alien!
Mary-Lou: I really like you mister. What do you do? For a living, I mean?
Thomas Jerome Newton: Oh, I'm just visiting.
Mary-Lou: Oh, a traveler!
Thomas Jerome Newton: My interest is energy - transference of energy.
Thomas Jerome Newton: What is this music Farnsworth keeps sending me? I don't like it.
Mary-Lou: Some big named composer.
Thomas Jerome Newton: I don't want it. I want something with singing on it.
Thomas Jerome Newton: My life isn't secret, Mr. Farnsworth, but it is private.
Thomas Jerome Newton: Do you think I could have something to drink?
Mary-Lou: Are you sure you should drink?
Thomas Jerome Newton: I'd like a glass of...
Mary-Lou: Gin? A nice gin and tonic with four cubes of ice and a slice of lime. Hmm. How's that sound mister?
Thomas Jerome Newton: Just a glass of water.
Mary-Lou: First, we'll have a drink. Then I'll have a bath. And tomorrow - we'll go to church. Lord, I love gin.
Nathan Bryce: Why'd you come here?
Thomas Jerome Newton: Where I come from, there's a terrible drought. We saw pictures of your planet on television. We saw the water. In fact, our word for your planet means - planet of water.
Nathan Bryce: You watched it all on television?
Thomas Jerome Newton: [Mary-Lou starts the elevator] I'll just walk.
Mary-Lou: It's five flights.
[Thomas leans against the wall and falls to the floor]
Mary-Lou: Should I stop it?
Thomas Jerome Newton: Just keep going.
Mary-Lou: Oh my God.
Thomas Jerome Newton: They're stuck! I'll never get them off.
Nathan Bryce: If I had the copyright on the Bible, I wouldn't sell it to Random House.
Thomas Jerome Newton: They're so strange here, the trains.
Nathan Bryce: Per ardua ad astra... That's Latin.
Thomas Jerome Newton: Latin?
Nathan Bryce: You must know that in England? The Royal Air Force, their motto.
Thomas Jerome Newton: Yes.
Nathan Bryce: Per ardua ad astra. Through difficulties to the stars.
Mary-Lou: Oh, come on, Tommy. Don't go now. Give us another chance.
Mary-Lou: You won't find anyone else like me, you know. You won't find anyone who'd do for you like I've done for you.
Mary-Lou: All I'm trying to say, Tommy, is that if you could just prove who you really are, you'd be *free*! Don't you understand, they don't understand you! The don't *believe* you. Believe me, they think you're one of *us*. They think you're a freak - or a fake. I know you're not. All you have to do is just prove it to 'em. Let 'em see you as you really are!
Nathan Bryce: [Referring to Newton's phonograph record] Who'd you make it for, then?
Thomas Jerome Newton: For my wife. She'll get to hear it one day - on the radio.
Nathan Bryce: We hear most everything on the radio these days.
Nathan Bryce: Don't you feel bitter about it - everything?
Thomas Jerome Newton: Bitter, no. We'd have probably treated you the same if you'd come over to our place.
Thomas Jerome Newton: I may not stay - sober anymore. But, I still have money.
Nathan Bryce: Well, I'm not a lecherous old man; but, you're a lecherous little girl!
Jill: But, no one would ever believe it!
Thomas Jerome Newton: I can't go to church.
Mary-Lou: Oh, come on, Tommy, it's a real good church. You won't feel out of place. Makes me feel so good. Gives me something to believe in. Everybody needs that: a meaning to life. I mean, when you look out at the sky at night, don't you feel that somewhere, out there, there's gotta be a God. There's gotta be.
Mary-Lou: Are you married?
Thomas Jerome Newton: Yes.
Mary-Lou: I thought so. What's she like, your wife? Is she like me?
Thomas Jerome Newton: No.
Mary-Lou: I didn't think so. Well, I guess I'll do for now, won't I?
Nathan Bryce: You see, Mr. Newton, I'm kind of a cliche. I'm the disillusioned scientist, that goes with the cynical writer, the alcoholic actor and the spaced-out spaceman. A man like you wouldn't understand a guy like me.
