The Fifth Element (1997)
DJ Ruby Rhod: What's wrong with you? What you screamin' for? Every 5 minutes there's somethin', a bomb or somethin'. I'm leavin'. bzzzz.
Leeloo: Leeloo Dallas mul-ti-pass.
Korben Dallas: Yeah.
Korben Dallas: Yeah, multipass, she knows it's a multipass. Leeloo Dallas. This is my wife.
Korben Dallas: We're newlyweds. Just met. You know how it is. We bumped into each other, sparks happen...
Korben Dallas: Yes, she knows it's a multipass. Anyway, we're in love.
Korben Dallas: Whoa, lady, I only speak two languages, English and bad English.
[Leeloo continues to talk in divine language]
Korben Dallas: Now, don't get me wrong, I'm all for conversation, but maybe you could just shut up for a moment?
Korben Dallas: What's your name?
Leeloo: Leeloo Minai Lekarariba-Laminai-Tchai Ekbat De Sebat.
Korben Dallas: Good. That... that whole thing's your name, huh? Do you have, uh... a shorter name?
Leeloo: Me fifth element - supreme being. Me protect you.
[demonstrating a weapon]
Zorg: Voila! The ZF-1.
[the weapon opens, and Zorg picks it up]
Zorg: It's light. Handle's adjustable for easy carrying, good for righties and lefties. Breaks down into four parts, undetectable by x-ray, ideal for quick, discreet interventions. A word on firepower. Titanium recharger, three thousand round clip with bursts of three to three hundred, and with the Replay button - another Zorg invention - it's even easier.
Mr. Kim: You got a message.
Korben Dallas: Yeah
Mr. Kim: You're not gonna open it? It might be important.
Korben Dallas: Yeah, like the last two I got were important. The first one was from my wife, telling me she was leaving. The second was from my lawyer, telling me he was leaving... with my wife.
Mr. Kim: Ah, that's bad luck. Grandfather say it not rain everyday. This is good news, guaranteed. I bet your lunch.
Korben Dallas: Okay, you're on.
Mr. Kim: Come on...
Mr. Kim: You are fired. Oh.
Korben Dallas: Well, at least I won lunch.
Mr. Kim: Good philosophy, see good in bad, I like.
Korben Dallas: We need to find the leader, Mangalores won't fight without the leader.
Aknot: One more shot, and we start killing hostages!
Korben Dallas: That's the leader.
Aknot: Send someone to negotiate.
Fog: [as Dallas looks at him] Uh, I-I've never negotiated before.
Korben Dallas: Do you mind if I try?
Fog: No, sure, sure, sure.
Fog: We're sending somebody in to negotiate!
[Corben walks into the room and shoots Aknot between the eyes. As he falls, the other Mangalores drop their weapons and bow over him, keening]
Korben Dallas: Anybody else want to negotiate?
Fog: Wh-where did he learn to n-negotiate like that?
President Lindberg: [looking at General Munro] I wonder.
Korben Dallas: [Leans down and kisses Leeloo. Leeloo swipes his gun and holds it to his head]
Korben Dallas: You're right, you're right, I shouldn't have done that. I'm sorry.
Leeloo: Senno ecto gammat!
Korben Dallas: I'm sorry, I'm sorry!
Leeloo: ecto gammat!
Korben Dallas: [In a later scene] When she woke up, she said a bunch a stuff. I didn't understand any of it but... what does 'ecto gammat' mean?
Priest Vito Cornelius: Uh... never again, without my permission.
Korben Dallas: That's what I thought.
Zorg: This case is empty.
[switches to conversation between Cornelius and Leeloo, who is laughing]
Priest Vito Cornelius: What do you mean, empty?
[back to conversation between Zorg and Aknot]
Zorg: Empty. The opposite of full. This case is supposed to be full! Anyone care to explain?
Leeloo: [back to Leeloo, speaking in the Divine Language]
Priest Vito Cornelius: The guardians... gave the stones... to someone they could trust... who-who took another route... she's supposed to contact this person... in a hotel... and she's looking for the address. Easy.
Leeloo: [points to the computer screen] Dort.
David: It's-it's planet Fhloston, in the Angel Constellation!
Priest Vito Cornelius: We're saved.
[back to Zorg and Aknot]
Zorg: I'm screwed.
Leeloo: I don't know love. I was built to protect not to love, so there is no use for me other than this.
[Father Cornelius and Ruby Rhod see the bomb stuck to the door]
Priest Vito Cornelius: It's a - it's a - it's a - it's a - it's a - it's a...
DJ Ruby Rhod: No no no no no no. 'Cuz if it was a bomb, the alarms would go off 'cuz all these hotels have bomb detectors, right?
[the alarms sound]
DJ Ruby Rhod: Korben sweetheart, what was that? It was BAD! It had no fire, no energy, no nothing! Y'know I got a Show to run here, and it must pop POP POP! So tomorrow from 5 to 7 will you PLEASE act like you have more than a two word vocabulary. It must be green, okay?
Korben Dallas: Can I talk to you for a second?
[Throws Ruby up against a wall]
Korben Dallas: I didn't come here to play Pumbaa on the radio. So tomorrow from 5 to 7 your gonna give yourself a hand, You green?
DJ Ruby Rhod: [Strangling Voice] Supergreen.
General Munro: [after telling Korben about the mission] Any questions?
Korben Dallas: Yeah. Just one. Why me? I retired six months ago. You remember?
General Munro: Three reasons. One - as a member of the elite special forces unit of the Federated Army, you are expert in the use of all major weapons & space craft needed for this mission. Two - of all the members of your unit, you were the most highly decorated.
Korben Dallas: ...and the third one?
General Munro: Of all the members of your unit, you're the only one left alive.
Check in Attendant: Mr. Rhod, you are going to have to assume your individual position.
DJ Ruby Rhod: I don't want one position, I want all positions!
[the President is talking with Korben's mother on the phone]
President Lindberg: Mrs. Dallas, this is the President. On behalf of the federation, I would like to thank you...
Korben's Mother: Oh, please. That doesn't even sound like him! The President's an idiot, you don't sound like an idiot. If you don't wanna talk to your mother, just avoid me like usual, huh? I'll just throw myself in traffic. I'll just Saran Wrap myself to the bed and pretend my child is suffocating me...
Fhloston Hostess: We have twelve swimming pools, and two on the rooftop. All the restaurants are between level two and level ten. The planet Fhloston has 400 beaches, all accessible until 5 PM. Then, the airship goes higher, to offer you a better view with your dinner.
Korben Dallas: Is the Diva here yet?
Fhloston Hostess: Not yet.
Korben Dallas: Are there any tickets left for this opera? I'm a really big fan...
Fhloston Hostess: You have a seat reserved, front row, next to RU-BY RHOD! He's so talented, don't you think? I just love him... he's so sexy...
Priest: Hurry! The wall is closing!
Mondoshawan: [lumbering towards the exit] Here is your mission: pass your knowledge on to the next, as it was passed on to you.
Priest: I-I will do as you command, but please hurry! You still have time!
Mondoshawan: Time not important. Only life important.
[the Mondoshawan extends the key beyond the exit, and the Priest turns away in horror as the rest of him is crushed between the wall]
Zorg: Where are the stones?
Priest Vito Cornelius: I don't know. And even if I did know, I wouldn't tell someone like you.
Zorg: Why? What's wrong with me?
Priest Vito Cornelius: I try to serve life. And you seem to want to destroy it.
Zorg: Oh, Father. You're so wrong. Let me explain.
[Puts and empty water glass on his desk]
Zorg: Life, which you so nobly serve, comes from destruction, disorder and chaos. Now take this empty glass. Here it is: peaceful, serene, boring. But if it is destroyed
[Pushes the glass off the table. It shatter on the floor, and several small machines come out to clean it up]
Zorg: Look at all these little things! So busy now! Notice how each one is useful. A lovely ballet ensues, so full of form and color. Now, think about all those people that created them. Technicians, engineers, hundreds of people, who will be able to feed their children tonight, so those children can grow up big and strong and have little teeny children of their own, and so on and so forth. Thus, adding to the great chain of life. You see, father, by causing a little destruction, I am in fact encouraging life. In reality, you and I are in the same business.
Leeloo: What's the use in saving life when you see what you do with it?
Korben Dallas: Leeloo... how do we open these stones?
Leeloo: Wind blows... Fire Burns... Water Falls...
General Munro: The Mondoshawans never fully trusted the human race.
Zorg: I don't like warriors. Too narrow-minded, no subtlety. And worse, they fight for hopeless causes. Honor? Huh! Honor's killed millions of people, it hasn't saved a single one.
Korben Dallas: You wanna play it soft. We'll play it soft. You wanna play it hard. Let's play it hard.
Zorg: I hate warriors, too narrow-minded. I'll tell you what I do like though: a killer, a dyed-in-the-wool killer. Cold blooded, clean, methodical and thorough. Now a real killer, when he picked up the ZF-1, would've immediately asked about the little red button on the bottom of the gun.
[Scene shifts to Aknot, who is staring in confusion at the little red button. He shrugs and pushes it]
Zorg: [Casually smokes a cigarette as the room with the Mangalores blows up] Bring me the priest.
[Cornelius bursts into Korben's room and holds him at gunpoint]
Priest Vito Cornelius: I'm really sorry to have to resort to these methods, Mr. Wallace...
Korben Dallas: Dallas.
Priest Vito Cornelius: Er, Mr. Dallas. But we heard about your good luck on the radio, and we need your tickets for Fhloston.
Korben Dallas: Is this how priests normally take vacations?
Priest Vito Cornelius: We're not on a vacation, we're on a mission!
Korben Dallas: What mission is that?
Priest Vito Cornelius: We have to save the world, my son.
Zorg: A case with four stones in it! Not one or two or three but four! Four stones! What the hell am I supposed to do with an empty case?
Mangalore Aknot: We are warriors, not merchants.
Zorg: But you can still count. Look it's easy. Look at my fingers, four stones, four crates, zero stones, zero crates! Pack everything up we're outta here.
Mangalore Aknot: [Mangalores hoist their guns with a roar] We risked our lives! I think a little compensation is in order.
Zorg: Oh, so you are merchants after all. Leave them one crate for the cause.
Professor Pacoli: [shocked after turning around and being surprised by one of the divine aliens] A-a-aa-a-a-are you German?
[alien shakes its head]
DJ Ruby Rhod: We'll find out everything there is to know about the D man: his dreams, his desires, his most intimates of intimates, and from what I'm looking at, "intimate" is the stud muffin's middle name. So tell me my man, are you nervous in the service?
Korben Dallas: Mmm... not really.
[Korben shows up at Father Cornelius' door with an unconscious Leeloo in his arms]
Priest Vito Cornelius: Yes?
Korben Dallas: I'm, uh, looking for a priest.
Priest Vito Cornelius: Weddings are one floor down, my son. Congratulations.
President Lindberg: [phone call from President to Korben Dallas] Major Dallas, I first would like to salute a warrior, you are a shining example of this Army's might, in the name of the Federation and it's territory...
Korben Dallas: Mr. President, Mr. President, any idea when you gonna be getting to the point?
President Lindberg: O.K. There's a ball of fire, it's 1200 miles in diameter headin straight for Earth, and we have no idea how to stop it. *That's* the problem.
Korben Dallas: [sighs] How long do we have?
Scientist's Aide: [off the President's look] If its speed remains constant, in an hour and fifty-seven minutes.
Korben Dallas: I'll call you back in two hours.
[Korben is arguing with his mother on the phone]
Korben's Mother: Oh, I get it. You wanna make make your only mother to beg. Is that it?
Korben Dallas: No, I don't wanna make you beg. All I want is an explanation. Look, I just got in. I just smashed my cab, I lost my job, I got mugged. Besides that, everything's peachy. Thanks for asking. Now will you just settle down and explain this to me calmly.
Korben's Mother: Oh, so you don't know you won a trip to Fhloston Paradise for two for 10 days? And I suppose you'll just leave me on the lunar surface to freeze my ass off?
Korben Dallas: If I'd won a trip, I'd know about it. Somebody would've notified me.
[a message drops in his tube]
Korben's Mother: Corben, they've been blaring your name on the radio for the last hour, you big ape.
Shadow: How are the stones?
Zorg: Fine... fine, just fine... I'll, I'll have the... ah... I'll have the four stones you asked for anytime now... but, but it wasn't easy. My costs... have tripled.
Shadow: Money is of... no importance. I... want... the... STONES...
Zorg: The stones... will be here... I'll see to it personally...
Shadow: I will be among you... soon.
Korben Dallas: How many are in there?
Korben Dallas: Let's count.
[looks around the corner and counts the Mangalors in the room; draws back quickly]
Korben Dallas: Seven on the left, five on the right.
[turns the corner again and fires six shots in rapid succession]
Korben Dallas: Four on the right, two on the left.
President Lindberg: Steadert.
General Staedert: Yes Sir!
President Lindberg: I have a doubt.
General Staedert: I don't, Mr. President.
Korben Dallas: [shoves a bag into Ruby's hands] You guard this with your life, or you're gonna look like this guy here! You green?
DJ Ruby Rhod: G-green.
[cut to the President's office, where every word is being heard over the radio, transmitted galaxy-wide on Ruby's radio show]
Korben Dallas: Super green?
DJ Ruby Rhod: Super green.
President Lindberg: Is that your idea of a discreet operation?
General Munro: Don't-don't worry, sir. I know my man. He'll calm things down.
[cut back to Fhloston, as three Mangalores go down in an explosion of gunfire, and Korben charges out a door, guns blazing]
Zorg: Torture who you have to, the President, I don't care. Just bring me the stones. You have one hour.
Korben Dallas: The government sent me to help you. Just stay calm.
Letter from Gemini Croquette: [Korben receives a letter and upon opening it, the letter says outloud:] You're a winner!
[Father Cornelius confides in a bartender]
Priest Vito Cornelius: I know she's made to be strong, but she's also so fragile, so human. Know what I mean?
[Robot bartender shakes its head]
[David brings some new clothes for Leeloo - she examines them with delight, then casually strips off her robe - David and Cornelius quickly turn around]
David: They really made her...
Priest Vito Cornelius: Perfect. I know.
Priest Vito Cornelius: What are you doing?
Korben Dallas: Trying to save your ass so you can save the world.
Priest Vito Cornelius: Because it is evil, absolutely evil.
President Lindberg: One more reason to shoot first.
Priest Vito Cornelius: Evil begets evil, Mr. President. Shooting will only make it stronger.
DJ Ruby Rhod: And now we enter what must the most beautiful concert hall of all the universe. A perfect replica of the old opera house... But who cares?
Billy: When is this "Snake" act supposed to occur?
Professor Pacoli: Well, if this is the five and this is the one...
[counting under his breath]
Professor Pacoli: Every 5,000 years.
Billy: So I've got some time then.
Priest Vito Cornelius: I... have... a different theory, to offer you, sir.
President Lindberg: You have twenty seconds.
DJ Ruby Rhod: There's the Emperor and his lovely daughter. "I love to sing," she recently confessed to me!
[aside to Korben]
DJ Ruby Rhod: By the way, I have a recording of her talented voice...
[He touches a button on his cane. A recording plays]
Woman: [moaning] Uh-huh, oh yeah, uh-huh!
[just getting into his hotel room, the phone rings and its his mother on the other line]
Korben's Mother: You miserable bastard! I never should've pushed you out.
Korben Dallas: Ma?
Korben's Mother: Oh, so you don't know you won a trip to Fhloston Paradise for two for 10 days? And I suppose you'll I was in labor for days, and this is how you repay me? I should've just gotten a robot.
Korben Dallas: Come on, Ma.
Korben's Mother: Don't "come on, Ma" me. I should be there, not you! I need a tan! I need a cocktail!
Shadow: It's Shadow...
Zorg: Zorg here.
Shadow: Am I disturbing you?
Zorg: Oh no... no, no... I was... just... W-Where are you?
Shadow: Not far now.
Zorg: Good... good, good...
[the Priest runs outside the Temple as the Mondoshawan ship lifts off]
Priest: I will fulfill my mission! You can count on me!
[holds up the key]
Priest: I will pass the knowledge on, until you return!
Mondoshawan: Priest, you and those before you have served us well. But war is coming. Stones not safe on Earth anymore.
Priest: My lord, if you take the weapon, we will be defenseless when the evil returns.
Mondoshawan: In 300 years, when Evil returns... so shall we.
Omar: [whispers to sleeping Aziz] Aziz! Aziz!
Professor Pacoli: [shouts] Aziz! Light!
[Aziz wakes up with a start]
Billy: "Aziz! Light!"
Mactilburgh: Remove the shield.
Leeloo: [Leeloo was reconstructed]
Mactilburgh: I told you. Perfect. Thermal bandages.
Leeloo: [Leeloo was attached in Thermal bandages]
General Munro: I'd... like to take a few pictures... for the archives.
Leeloo: [Leeloo was taken a picture. Then she is surprised at the flash]
Priest Vito Cornelius: [discussing the Dark Planet] Imagine for a moment that this thing is not anything that can be identified because it prefers not to be. Wherever there is life, it brings death, because it is evil, absolute evil.
President Lindberg: One more reason to shoot first.
Priest Vito Cornelius: Evil begets evil, Mr. President. Shooting will only make it stronger.
Head Scientist: The thing is sending out radio wavelengths!
President Lindberg: What the hell does it want with radio waves?
Scientist's Aide: Maybe it wants to make a call.
[as the Federation ships prepare to fire on the dark planet]
Scientist's Aide: Its structure has just solidified on the surface.
Head Scientist: I think it's anticipating the attack. Anticipation denotes intelligence.
Priest Vito Cornelius: The most terrible intelligence imaginable, Mr. President.
