Quotes

Dorian Gray: Ah. The bedroom, Mina. Does it give you memories? Or ideas?

Mina Harker: Ideas.

[She stabs him in the groin]

Dorian Gray: [gasping] If that had been permanent, I'd have been very upset!

Allan Quatermain: Now, would you like to learn to shoot?

Tom Sawyer: I can already.

Allan Quatermain: Oh, I saw. Very American. Fire enough bullets and hope to hit the target.

Allan Quatermain: I may have been overly rude earlier... when I called you a pirate.

Captain Nemo: And I may have been overly charitable... when I said I wasn't. But I try to live in the now... where the ghosts of old wrongs do not abide.

Captain Nemo: We have trouble.

Mr. Hyde: Trouble? I call it sport.

Tom Sawyer: Boy. They told me European women had funny ways.

Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): Oh, chemist, eh? Do we get to blow something up, then?

Allan Quartermain: Well, we were the faster, but now we're the tortoise to his hare.

Dr. Henry Jekyll: So, we're done?

Tom Sawyer: No, we're alive. If M has any idea to the contrary, that gives us an edge.

Captain Nemo: The sea is vast, he could be anywhere.

Tom Sawyer: Yeah, well, I'm an optimist, now maybe that's a crime to you twisted so-and-so's but it keeps me from going crazy.

Mina Harker: Your optimism's out of place.

Tom Sawyer: You're wrong! Because we'll get out, man... at least, I will. That other agent I told you about... was my childhood friend. We were agents together until the Fantom shot him dead. Now you can be done, but I am not. I will avenge his death.

Dr. Henry Jekyll: It's not about any one of us, Tom, it's bigger than that.

Tom Sawyer: Yes, it is, Jekyll! The fate for the world is in our hands... the world! So M tricked you, he brought you all together and you walked straight into his trap. But the way that I see it, that's the part he did wrong... He brought you together.

Dr. Henry Jekyll: He has a point.

Allan Quartermain: And the boy becomes a man... perhaps a leader of men.

Mina Harker: And Women.

M: You could stay, you know. Share my dream.

Dorian Gray: I've lived long enough to see the future become history, Professor. Empires crumble. There are no exceptions.

M: You think you're better than me. You forget: I've seen your painting.

Allan Quatermain: If you can't do it with one bullet, don't do it at all.

Dorian Gray: I hoped I'd get to nail you one more time. Didn't think it'd be literally.

Sanderson Reed: There is great unrest. Countries set at each other's throats, baying for blood. It's a powder-keg. The trouble of which I speak could set a match to the whole thing: War.

Allan Quatermain: Wi-With whom, exactly?

Sanderson Reed: Everyone. A world war.

Allan Quatermain: That notion makes you sweat?

Sanderson Reed: Heavens, man. Doesn't it you?

Allan Quatermain: This is Africa, dear boy. Sweating is what we do.

M: James Moriarty? The so-called Napoleon of crime? That man died at Reichenbach Falls. He died, and I was reborn.

Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): This is a charming spot. Does Jack the Ripper live here?

M: I hope I've got your fire when I'm your age.

Allan Quatermain: You will not live beyond today. That I promise you.

Edward Hyde: Yes, Henry. Look, but don't touch. That's your way.

Dr. Henry Jekyll: Just shut up. I won't be tricked again.

Edward Hyde: Tricked? You've known what I was about each time you drank the formula.

Dr. Henry Jekyll: Liar. I am a good man.

Edward Hyde: Who's lying now? You want it, even more than you want her.

Dr. Henry Jekyll: No.

Edward Hyde: You can't shut me out forever. Drink the elixir.

Dr. Henry Jekyll: No.

Edward Hyde: She barely even looks at you...

Dr. Henry Jekyll: Be quiet.

Edward Hyde: SHE LOOKED AT ME.

Allan Quartermain: [after the exploration pod has been stolen] We can track it.

Captain Nemo: Track it? I intend to catch it!

[Dante throws the Fantom a rocket launcher]

Draper: [in German] Are you crazy? This place is full of hydrogen gas!

The Fantom: Really? That's so frightening.

[fires]

Ishmael: That Skinner's got a lot to answer for!

Dorian Gray: Not Skinner - me!

[raises his gun and shoots Ishmael]

Allan Quartermain: Jekyll, come on! We'll need Hyde!

Dr. Henry Jekyll: No! Hyde will never use me again.

Dorian Gray: Then what good are you?

[Chasing Moriarty, Tom Sawyer bumps into an invisible man]

Tom Sawyer: Skinner?

Tom Sawyer: What the hell are you doing here?

Sanderson Reed: What makes you think I'm Skinner, huh?

[Mina slaps him]

Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): Oooh, Mina...

Captain Nemo: Report.

Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): Well, hello to you, too. And need I remind you, I am naked in the snow. I can't feel any of my extremities. And I mean... any of them.

Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): So, how did M get you?

Allan Quatermain: None of your business.

Mina Harker: You're a little testy, Mr. Q.

Allan Quatermain: Mrs. Harker, I doubt if you measure danger the way I do.

Mina Harker: And I imagine you with quite the library, Mr. Quatermain. All those books you must have read merely by looking at their covers.

Allan Quatermain: I've had women along on past exploits, and found them to be, at best, a distraction.

Mina Harker: Do I distract you?

Allan Quatermain: My dear girl, I've buried two wives and many lovers... and I'm in no mood for more of either.

Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): You can send 'em my way.
