The Edge (1997) Poster



Charles Morse: You know, I once read an interesting book which said that, uh, most people lost in the wilds, they, they die of shame.

Stephen: What?

Charles Morse: Yeah, see, they die of shame. "What did I do wrong? How could I have gotten myself into this?" And so they sit there and they... die. Because they didn't do the one thing that would save their lives.

Robert Green: And what is that, Charles?

Charles Morse: Thinking.

Stephen: A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow.

Charles Morse: Today, I'm-a-gonna-kill the mutha fucka.

Charles Morse: We're all put to the test... but it never comes in the form or at the point we would prefer, does it?

[after successfully fighting a bear]

Charles Morse: For all my life, I've have wanted to do something that was, um, that was unequivocal.

Robert Green: Well, Charlie, I certainly think this qualifies.

Charles Morse: Or something.

Robert Green: See, Charles, that's why they call it personal growth. A month ago, old Smokey here would've reared up, you probably would've called your lawyer!

Charles Morse: Nah, I wouldn't do that to an animal.

Ginny: Is that a new watch?

Robert Green: Ya, dual time zones; tells the time in two places.

Ginny: What for?

Robert Green: So if I'm in L.A. and want to know the time in New York I don't have to go through the anguish of adding three.

Robert Green: [Eating] Wish we had some salt.

Charles Morse: You know, you can, uh... you can season meat with gunpowder. Did you know that?

Robert Green: Wish we had some gunpowder.

Robert Green: Hey... I'm dying. I'm dying and I never did a god damn thing!

Charles Morse: Why is the rabbit unafraid?

Styles: 'Cause he's smarter than the panther.

Charles Morse: You saved me.

Robert Green: Get over it, Charles - I just need you to navigate.

Charles Morse: You saved my life.

Robert Green: Well, I couldn't kill you with Stephen around. I'd have to kill him too, and he's the only one that knows how I like my coffee.

Charles Morse: Come on, you saved my life.

Robert Green: Buy me something nice when we get home.

Charles Morse: How'd you like your coffee?

Robert Green: Huh. I like my coffee like I like my women.

Stephen: Bitter and murky!

Charles Morse: What one man can do, another can do.

Charles Morse: Never feel sorry for a man who owns a plane.

Reporter #1: Mr. Morse, what happened to your friends?

Reporter #2: How did they die?

Charles Morse: They died... saving my life.

[moments before the plane flies into a flock of wild birds]

Charles Morse: So what do you value me for, Bob?

Robert Green: I like your style, your wife's pretty cute too.

Charles Morse: So how are you planning to kill me?

Robert Green: Yeah, Well, you have no business with that broad. You know that you don't. I mean hey... hey... hey.

Charles Morse: Did you know that you can make fire from ice?

Charles Morse: Never feel sorry for a man who owns a bank.

Charles Morse: I once read an interesting bit. Most people who die in the woods die of shame.

Charles Morse: Why is the rabbit unafraid? Because he's smarter than the panther.
