Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985)
Dr. Dealgood: Listen all! This is the truth of it. Fighting leads to killing, and killing gets to warring. And that was damn near the death of us all. Look at us now! Busted up, and everyone talking about hard rain! But we've learned, by the dust of them all... Bartertown learned. Now, when men get to fighting, it happens here! And it finishes here! Two men enter; one man leaves.
Pigkiller: Remember: no matter where you go, there you are.
Aunty Entity: And what did you do before all this?
Max: I was a cop, a driver.
Aunty Entity: But how the world turns. One day, cock of the walk. Next, a feather duster.
Aunty Entity: We call it Underworld. That's where Bartertown gets its energy.
Max: What, oil? Natural gas?
Aunty Entity: Pigs.
Max: You mean pigs like those?
Aunty Entity: That's right.
Aunty Entity: No. Pig shit.
The Collector: Pig shit. The lights, the motors, the vehicles, all run by a high-powered gas called methane. And methane cometh from pig shit.
Dr. Dealgood: Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls... Dyin' time's here.
Aunty Entity: Welcome, to another edition of Thunderdome!
Max: I ain't Captain Walker. I'm the guy who carries Mr. Dead in his pocket.
Savannah Nix: Time counts and keeps countin', and we knows now finding the trick of what's been and lost ain't no easy ride. But that's our trek, we gotta' travel it. And there ain't nobody knows where it's gonna' lead. Still in all, every night we does the tell, so that we 'member who we was and where we came from... but most of all we 'members the man that finded us, him that came the salvage. And we lights the city, not just for him, but for all of them that are still out there. 'Cause we knows there come a night, when they sees the distant light, and they'll be comin' home.
Master: These our witness, Aunty. Us suffer bad. Want justice. We want Thunderdome!
Aunty Entity: You know the law: Two men enter, one man leaves.
Master: This Blaster! Twenty men enter, only him leave!
Aunty Entity: Then it's your choice. Thunderdome.
Aunty Entity: Remember where you are - this is Thunderdome, and death is listening, and will take the first man that screams.
Bartertown Crowd: Two men enter, one man leave!
The Collector: Perhaps you've got something to trade after all.
Max: Keep talkin'
The Collector: Twenty-four hours of your life, in return, you'll get back what was stolen.
Max: Sounds like a bargain.
The Collector: It's not. It's the law.
Aunty Entity: Congratulations! You're the first to survive the audition!
Aunty Entity: Do you know who I was? Nobody. Except on the day after, I was still alive. This nobody had a chance to be somebody.
Max: [Max recognizes Jedediah] YOU!
Jedediah the Pilot: Me?
Max: You, it's your lucky day!
Jedediah the Pilot: It is?
Max: Uh huh. You've got a plane.
Jedediah the Pilot: I have?
Max: [Outside, a plane is being started] It might just save your life.
Jedediah the Pilot: It will?
Max: Uh huh.
Max: [Pig Killer's leg been impaled to the door with a spear]
[Max grabbing the door]
Max: Okay, we're going to count to three. One...
[Max rips open the door, freeing Pig Killer's impaled leg]
Pigkiller: [whimpering, in pain] What happened to two...?
Dr. Dealgood: Right now, I've got two men, two men with a gut full of fear. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls... dyin' times here!
Auntie Entity: [the Blaster has reduced Bartertown's power supply] For God's sake, what now?
The Master: Who run Bartertown?
Auntie Entity: Dammit, I told you, no more embargos.
The Master: More, Blaster.
[the Blaster puts all power out]
The Master: Who run Bartertown? Who... run... Bartertown?
Auntie Entity: ...You know who.
The Master: Say.
Auntie Entity: Master Blaster.
The Master: Say loud!
[the Master turns on the town loudspeakers]
Auntie Entity: Master Blaster.
The Master: Master Blaster... what?
Auntie Entity: Master Blaster runs Bartertown.
The Master: Louder!
Auntie Entity: Master Blaster runs Bartertown!
The Master: Lift embargo.
[the Blaster turns power back on]
Jedediah Jr.: [armed with more guns than he can hold] This is a stickup! Anybody moves, and they're dead meat!
[Max turns around and looks at the approaching vehicles]
Jedediah Jr.: Oh, no, I think we're all dead meat!
Dr. Dealgood: All our lives hang by a thread. Now we got a man waiting for sentence. But ain't it the truth: you take your chances with the law, justice is only a roll of the dice. A flip of the coin. A turn... of the Wheel.
Blackfinger: [trying to disarm Max' booby trapped vehicle] I'll disconnect the battery!
Max: I wouldn't do that.
Master: Who you?
Max: Me Max.
Master: You smart.
Max: That's my vehicle.
Max: How much?
Master: No trade! Do!
Max: [turns and walks away]
Master: [to Blaster] FETCH!
[Aunty Entity's men surround Max, until she makes them stand down]
Aunty Entity: [to Max] Well, ain't we a pair, raggedy man.
[she laughs evilly and heads back to her truck]
Aunty Entity: Goodbye, soldier.
[she and her men drive off, leaving Max alone in the desert]
Max: How long are you in for?
Pigkiller: The big one. Life.
Max: For killing a pig?
Pigkiller: I had to feed the kids. Ah, it doesn't bother me. Down here, life's two, three years.
Aunty Entity: [to the citizens of Bartertown] Where are you gonna run? Where are you gonna hide? Listen to me! Bartertown will live! Find the little man! Bring him back to me! We will rebuild! For those who took him... No mercy.
Aunty Entity: This is no enemy. It's almost family.
Max: Oh, I see, real civilized!
Aunty Entity: The reasons don't concern you, only the conditions. Do you want the deal or not?
[nods in agreement]
The Collector: The first is, no one knows you're working for Aunty. You hit him, you go. The second is, it's a fair fight. The third is, it's to the death.
Max: Who's the bunny?
Aunty Entity: You think I don't know the law? Wasn't it me who wrote it? And I say that this man has broken the law. Right or wrong, we had a deal. And the law says: bust a deal and face the wheel!
Max: The first place you'll find is a sleaze-pit called Bartertown. Now if the earth doesn't swallow you up first, that place sure as hell will!
Master: Me order! Me Master! Me run Bartertown!
Max: Sure, that's why you live in shit!
Master: Not shit! Energy!
Max: Call it what you like. It still smells like shit to me!
Jedediah the Pilot: We're not gonna make it.
Max: We haven't got any choice.
Jedediah the Pilot: between them and us, there isn't enough runway.
Max: There will be.
Pigkiller: [sees that Max has discovered Blaster's weakness] Mr., who are ya?
Pigkiller: What's your name?
Pigkiller: No Mr., I can feel it! The dice are rollin'!
Dr. Dealgood: [giving instructions to Mad Max and Blaster prior to their battle] Thunderdome's simple. Get to the weapons, use them any way you can. I know you won't break the rules, because there aren't any.
Blackfinger: [after inspecting a bomb] It's a class job. One mistake, and it'll blow the crap out of this place! Literally.
