Quotes

Toombs: [Talking about Crematoria] If I owned this place and Hell, I'd rent this place out and live in Hell.

Richard B. Riddick: There's gonna be one speed... mine. If you can't keep up, don't step up. You'll just die.

Richard B. Riddick: Think someone could spend half their life in a slam with a horse bit in their mouth and not believe? Think he could start out in some liquor store trash bin with an umbilical cord wrapped around his neck and not believe? Got it all wrong, holy man. I absolutely believe in God... and I absolutely *hate* the fucker.

Richard B. Riddick: Remember that favorite game of yours?

Kyra: "Who's the Better Killer?"

Richard B. Riddick: Let's play.

Slam Guard: You'll kill us... with a soup cup?

Richard B. Riddick: Tea, actually.

Slam Guard: What's that?

Richard B. Riddick: I'll kill you with my teacup.

[director's cut]

Purifier: In this verse, life is antagonistic to the natural state. Here humans in all their various races are a spontaneous outbreak. An unguided mistake. Our purpose is to correct that mistake... because there is another verse. A verse where life is welcomed and cherished. A ravishing ever-new place called Underverse... but the road to that verse crosses over the threshold.

The Guv: There are inmates and there are convicts. A convict has a certain code. And he knows to show a certain respect. An inmate, on the other hand, pulls the pin on his fellow man. Does the guards' work for them... brings shame... to the game. So, which are you gonna be?

Richard B. Riddick: Me? I'm just passin' through.

Vaako: First and always, I am a Necromonger commander. So if you're here to test my loyalty, you succeed only in testing my patience.

Lord Marshal: Been a long time since I've seen my own blood.

Richard B. Riddick: Its been a long time since I smelled beautiful.

Dame Vaako: Let me show you the way.

Richard B. Riddick: You made three mistakes. First, you took the job. Second, you came light. A four man crew for me? Fucking insulting. But the worst mistake you made...

[Toombs darts for the gun rack which he finds to be empty while Riddick smiles]

Richard B. Riddick: ...empty gun rack.

Imam: Have you heard anything I've said?

Richard B. Riddick: You said it's all circling the drain, the whole universe. Right?

Imam: That's right.

Richard B. Riddick: Had to end sometime.

Kyra: Death by tea cup

[pulls cup out of dead guards chest]

Kyra: Damn. Why didn't I think of that?

[to Riddick]

Lord Marshal: Convert now... or fall forever.

[last lines]

[director's cut]

Richard B. Riddick: You keep what you kill.

Purifier: [to Riddick] I was supposed to deliver a message to you... if the Vaako failed to kill you. A message from the Lord Marshal himself. He tells you to stay away from Helion, stay away from him, and in return, you'll be hunted no more. But Vaako will most likely report you as dead. So this is your chance. Your chance to do what no man has ever done.

Aereon: [to Riddick] There are very few of us who have met a Necromonger and lived to speak of it. So when I choose to speak of it, you should choose to listen.

Vaako: This is your one chance. Take the Lord Marshals' offer and bow.

Richard B. Riddick: I bow to no man.

Vaako: [take off his helmet] He is not a man. He's the holy Half-Dead who has seen the UnderVerse.

Richard B. Riddick: Look, I'm not with everyone here. But I will take a piece of him.

[points to Irgun]

Vaako: A piece you will have.

Aereon: Furyans. Defiant to the end.

Richard B. Riddick: [in cryosleep] Merceneries. Elementals. Necromongers. Shit, I've never been so popular. I should probaly slip these chains and open up a few arteries. But why drive when you can get driven? Free ticket to Crematoria. Thanks Toombs. Got me some business there, named Jack. And once we settle up, I walk away forever. So I'll just wait... all back-of-the-bus for now.

Purifier: We all began as something else.

Richard B. Riddick: [to Aereon] The blade comes off when the bounty comes off.

Dame Vaako: [about the Necropolis] The first six Lord Marshals have called this home. Magnificent, isn't it?

Richard B. Riddick: I might have gone a different way.

Purifier: True of us all.

Richard B. Riddick: [to Imam] Now who do I have to kill to get this payday off my head?

Ziza: [to Riddick] Did you really kill monsters? The ones that were gonna hurt my father?

Imam: Such are our bedtime stories.

Richard B. Riddick: Not my fight.

Richard B. Riddick: [to Aereon] Sister, they don't know what to do with just one of me.

Imam: Lajjun and Ziza!

Richard B. Riddick: When it's over.

Imam: Let me go! I must get to my family!

Richard B. Riddick: When it's over!

Richard B. Riddick: It's an animal thing.

Purifier: I've done... unbelievable things... in the name of a faith that was never my own. And he'll do to her what he did to me.

[first lines]

Aereon: They are an army unlike any other... crusading across the stars toward a place called UnderVerse, their promised land - a constellation of dark new worlds. Necromongers, they're called. And if they cannot convert you, they will kill you. Leading them, the Lord Marshal. He alone has made a pilgrimage to the gates of the UnderVerse... and returned a different being. Stronger. Stranger. Half alive and half... something else. If we are to survive, a new balance must be found. In normal times, evil would be fought by good. But in times like these, well, it should be fought by another kind of evil.

Lord Marshal: All those poets, on all those worlds; the ones who spoke of battle being such an unsightly thing? They never stood here.

Richard B. Riddick: Don't bother. Guards ain't there. They figured out the Necros are comin' for me. Plan was to clean the bank, ghost the mercs, break wide for the tunnel. And then somebody got a lucky shot off with this rocket launcher here... and took out the sled. Guards took off on foot but rigged the door so no one could follow. They'll take the one ship in the hangar and leave everyone else to die.

Toombs: How come you know all this shit? You weren't even here.

Richard B. Riddick: Cause it was my plan.

Purifier: The Necromonger in me warns you not to go back.

[pause]

Purifier: But the Furyan in me... hopes you won't listen.

[shows blade to Riddick then drops it]

Purifier: God knows... I've dreamed of it.

Richard B. Riddick: What was that? You don't care if you live or die?

Kyra: If I kill them first, not really.

Richard B. Riddick: [quietly] Maybe I do.

[shouts]

Richard B. Riddick: Keep moving!

Richard B. Riddick: [a guard has Kyra in a choke-hold] I don't think she likes being touched. I'd take my wounded and go... while you still can.

Dame Vaako: Never fails to inspire does it? Each time a dynasty falls.

Vaako: Remember your place Dame Vaako.

Lord Marshal: What do you think of this blade?

[Riddick grabs it, spins it around over and under his hand; catches it blade facing him and offers it back to the Lord Marshal]

Richard B. Riddick: I think it's a half-gram heavy on the back end.

Richard B. Riddick: [director's cut] They say most of your brain shuts down in cryosleep.

Shirah: ...Brain shuts down in cryosleep...

Richard B. Riddick: All but the primitive side.

Shirah: All but the primitive side.

Richard B. Riddick: The animal side.

Shirah: All but the Furyan side.

Shirah: Some of us still remember the true crime that happened here on Furya. And once you wake - truly wake - you'll remember too.

Eve Logan: [about Toombs] What the hell is he thinkin' now?

Richard B. Riddick: He's thinkin' of a triple-max prison. A no-daylight slam. Only three of 'em left in this system, two of 'em outta range for a shitty little undercutter like this one with no legs. Leavin' just one - crematoria. That is what you had in mind. Right Toombs?

Richard B. Riddick: [to Toombs] Don't know about this new crew of yours. They seem a bit skittish. Probably shouldn't tell 'em what happened to the last crew.

[Dame Vaako opens the hanger bay beneath the, pulling a bladed weapon from the wall]

Dame Vaako: I've always wondered, can an air Elemental fly? Now do me a favor. Calculate the odds of you getting off this planet alive... and now cut them in half.

[Dame Vaako circling, forcing Aereon towards the gap, swings her blade, Aereon turns to mist, the blade passing through her and she floats across the pit]

Aereon: No, we can't fly. But we do glide very well.

Purifier: It was hard for me to accept too, the first time I heard these words... But I changed. I let them take away my pain. Just was you will change when you realize the threshold to the Underverse will be crossed only by those who have embraced the Necromonger faith, by those of you who will right now, drop to your knees, and ask, to be purified.

Kyra: How do I get eyes like that?

Richard B. Riddick: You gotta kill a few people.

Kyra: Did that. Did a lot of that.

Richard B. Riddick: Then you gotta get sent to a slam.

Kyra: One where they tell you you'll never see daylight again. Only there wasn't a doctor here who could shine my eyes, not even for 20 menthol Kools. Was there anything you said that was true?

[From Toombs' chase log]

Toombs: Two days out. Con in the back is named Speedo. Don't know where he got that, he looks pretty fuckin' slow at the moment.

Toombs: Shut up back there!
