Mortal Kombat (1995)
Johnny Cage: We got a guy with things comin' out of his hands, we got another guy who freezes stuff, and then there's a man, who as far as I can tell, is made out of electricity. I mean, how did he disappear like that? What is goin' on here? WHO IS THIS GUY?
Sonya Blade: Let's just think this through. There IS a rational explanation for all this.
Liu Kang: He's Rayden, god of lightning and protector of the realm of Earth.
Johnny Cage: Oh yeah. THERE'S your rational explanation!
Johnny Cage: [while fighting Goro] Those were $500 sunglasses, asshole.
[Johnny has challenged Goro]
Lord Rayden: What have you done?
Johnny Cage: I made a choice. This is OUR tournament, remember? Mortal Kombat. WE fight it!
[Johnny leaves, Rayden smiles]
Lord Rayden: Good. At last one of them has understood.
Shang Tsung: [Johnny Cage is about to fight Goro] Finish him quickly. Pay me my tribute.
Goro: This puny mortal will be no problem. I'll crush him with one blow.
Johnny Cage: All right? Let's dance.
Lord Rayden: [appears before Cage, Sonya and Liu Kang] Listen, what you are about to face is for more important than...
Lord Rayden: your ego
Lord Rayden: your enemy
[to Liu Kang]
Lord Rayden: or your quest for revenge. You're about to embark on a secret mission. You have been chosen to defend the realm of Earth. In a tournament called Mortal Kombat.
Shao Kahn: You weak, pathetic fools, I've come for your souls!
Lord Rayden: I don't think so.
Johnny Cage: [Seeing someone sitting in his chair] Hey, mister. You're in my chair.
Master Boyd: [Reading a Tabloid, and lowering it to reveal himself] Hi, Johnny.
Johnny Cage: Oh, Master Boyd.
Master Boyd: I can see that the press is still giving you a hard time.
Johnny Cage: Yeah, they think I'm a fake.
Master Boyd: Johnny, you are one of the best martial artists in the world, and I can help you prove it.
Johnny Cage: Prove it? How?
Master Boyd: A tournament, "THE" tournament.
[Hands him an invitation]
Master Boyd: It's held once a generation. The best fighters in the world are invited. You win the tournament, you win their respect. They'll tell the whole world, that you're the real goods.
Johnny Cage: So, how do I...
Master Boyd: There's a boat, it leaves Hong Kong tomorrow, be on it.
Johnny Cage: I'm in a hostile environment. I'm totally unprepared. And I'm surrounded by a bunch of guys who probably want to kick my ass... it's like being back in high school.
Johnny Cage: You know, you gotta admire her. When she sets her mind on something...
Liu Kang: It's not her mind you're admiring.
Johnny Cage: It's true.
Liu Kang: You can look into my soul, but you don't own it.
Shang Tsung: Why else would I have chosen such a disreputable-looking cretin? Look at him! No dignity, no manners... Yet in the realm of Earth, men like him can amass great wealth, and almost god-like power.
Kano: Yeah, and I'd like to get back to my amassing as soon as possible, if you don't mind! Now when do I get paid?
Johnny Cage: This is not good... but I'm fine... I can handle this... So this is Outworld, huh? Well, I can see why they want a change of scenery!
Princess Kitana: To win your next match, use the element which brings life.
Cage: [Takes first look inside the weird temple] Gee, I wonder what the bathroom looks like.
Johnny Cage: Kitana went this way... I can smell her purfume.
Lui Kang: I don't smell anything.
Sonya Blade: I smell something
[Looks at Johnny Cage]
Sonya Blade: Bullshit!
Princess Kitana: If I did not believe in you Liu Kang, I would not have helped you. In the Black Tower, you will face three challenges. You must face your enemy. You must face yourself. And you must face your worst fear.
[Johnny Cage sees a shadow of Goro loom upon a stone wall]
Johnny Cage: (whispering) Sonya, you go on ahead... find out WHAT that was... Liu and I will stay here!
Shang Tsung: From this moment on, my island will be your battle ground.
[points to Liu Kang]
Shang Tsung: Liu Kang, you will be first. Let Mortal Kombat begin.
Johnny Cage: Don't worry, I've got a plan.
Sonya Blade: Oh, I can't believe this! You are the most egotistical, self-deluded person I have ever met!
Johnny Cage: Yeah, well you forgot good looking.
[Kano is on the ground turning purple, because Sonya's knees are clamped tight around his neck]
Kano: No, Sonya, don't! Please! Come on, give me a break!
Sonya Blade: Okay.
[twists her legs, breaking Kano's neck]
Lord Rayden: I have looked into their souls... and yours. One of you three with determine the outcome of the tournament. The fate of billions depends upon you. Heh, heh, heh!
Lord Rayden: Sorry.
Shang Tsung: Challenging Goro eh? You weren't supposed to fight him now. Are you THAT eager to die?
Cage: I'm not the one who's gonna die.
Shang Tsung: I see. You're very foolish. A true sign of a hero. You want to protect your friends, but make no mistake; they too will die, after Goro destroys you.
Cage: So what's the problem?
Shang Tsung: As you wish. As absurd as your request is I shall grant it. In return, I reserve the right to challenge the winner myself... or another of my choosing. In a place designated by me for the final battle of the tournament.
Cage: You got it pal.
Grandfather: Spare him, my lord Rayden. American life has enfeebled his mind. Too much television.
Johnny Cage: Hey, pal! When the ship comes in, could you put these on board?
Liu Kang: You want ME to carry YOUR luggage?
Johnny Cage: Yeah. I pay money, you carry the bags, or is that too complicated?
Liu Kang: No...
[Liu Kang takes money out of Cage's hand]
Liu Kang: ...I got it.
Johnny Cage: Good.
[Liu Kang picks up a suitcase and throws it in the water, then smiles at Cage while walking away]
Johnny Cage: [Cage watches his suitcase sink]
Johnny Cage: Well, thank God I didn't ask him to park the car...
Johnny Cage: [after Rayden saves the trio from several ninjas] You're lucky he stopped us.
Shang Tsung: Johnny Cage, I challenge you!
Liu Kang: No! You'll fight me. I am Liu Kang, descendent of Kung Lao. I challenge you to Mortal Kombat.
Shang Tsung: We are here to fight in Mortal Kombat. Tomorrow the great Kombat begins, and now a taste of things to come.
Liu Kang: All those souls and you still don't have one of your own. I pity you sorcerer.
Shang Tsung: [Enraged] Save your pity for THE WEAK!
Goro: I saw this Lui Kang in the hall, I will crush him in one blow.
Liu Kang: Where are you taking us?
Johnny Cage: Kitana went this way...
[sniffs the air]
Johnny Cage: I can smell her perfume.
Blade: I don't smell anything.
[Johnny leads them back into the dinner hall]
Blade: I smell something...
[looks at Johnny]
Kano: [Takes knife out] Ooh, now look at this! This little baby brings back memories now, doesn't it?
Sonya Blade: What, you used it to knife your mother in the back?
Kano: Nah, but it put a big smile on your partner though. Ear
[motions the blade from one side of his face to the other]
Kano: wwsshh, to ear. Hehehe.
Shang Tsung: Some of you will even have the distinct honor and pleasure, to face Prince Goro, our reigning champion.
