Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories (2004 Video Game)
Dr. Finkelstein: Have you ever stopped to think about "true memories"?
Sora: True memories?
Dr. Finkelstein: Our hearts are full of memories - but not all of them reflect the truth.
Riku Replica: [to the real Riku] Well, well. You've changed. Last time we met, you were afraid of the darkness, but not anymore.
Riku: How can you tell?
Riku Replica: Because I'm you.
Riku: No, I'M me.
Riku Replica: "I'm me," he says. It must be nice, being real. A fake like me could never get away with saying that. That's right, I'm a phony! The way I look, the way I feel, everything! I thought by finding some new strength I could be someone, someone who's not you! But nothing changes... I'm still just empty! Everything about me is borrowed. As long as you're around, I'll never be anything better than a shadow!
Riku: Tell me! Where are my friends from my memories?
DiZ: Are you sure you want to see them?
Riku: ...Of course I do...
DiZ: But you cast them aside. To reach the outside world, you passed through the door to darkness. Behind you, you left family, friends, home - everything - all in pursuit of darkness.
Riku: But I cast that aside too!
DiZ: And what do you have to show for it? First your home, then the dark. Your heart only knows how to throw things away. It's empty, like that room. Like your memories. That's why no one is in the castle with you. Your heart is hollw except for the darkness you couldn't quite shake off.
Larxene: Everything's an experiment to you, Vexie.
Vexen: I am a scientist. Experimentation is what I do.
Squall (Leon) Leonheart: [about Sora] A friend of yours?
Yuffie Kisaragi: Nope! Total stranger. But I definitely know his name. Strange, yes, but convenient! We can skip the introductions.
Riku: What are you making me choose now?
DiZ: Will you take the road to light- or the road to darkness?
Riku: Neither. I'm taking the middle road.
DiZ: You mean the twilight road to nightfall?
Riku: No... The road to dawn.
Zexion: if you don't believe me...
[throws Riku a world card]
Zexion: ... you had best see the truth for yourself.
Maleficent: I knew you'd return, Riku.
Riku: Maleficent! You're alive?
Maleficent: You haven't been paying attention. I am but a figment of your memory.
Riku: Of all the people I could run into, it had to be you...
Maleficent: Who else? Your heart is steeped in darkness. You can only see people who exist in that same darkness - people like me.
Maleficent: Be grateful you have someone to keep you company. Your heart is empty. Were it not for the darkness in your heart... you would be completely alone.
Riku: That's sounding pretty good right about now.
Maleficent: Come, now. You once clung to me to sate your hunger for darkness. You want me here. Who else but I can give you the darkness you long for?
Riku: There was a time I did want you around. I surrendered my heart to the dark. But never again. You and your darkness have nothing to offer. All I did was lose myself... Empty myself! I'm finished with all that. If I'm stuck seeing people like you, people of the dark... I'll take you out one by one.
Maleficent: Then don't forget to take yourself out last. Because you, like me, are one of the dark.
Riku: That's fine with me. I turned to darkness because my heart was weak. I hate that weakness. It's like I'm my own enemy. And seeing people like you embrace the darkness just makes it worse! Enough talk, Maleficent.
Maleficent: So you hate the darkness enough to fight it... Oh, the agony you must feel! Let me end your pain, Riku - end it forever with the wondrous power of darkness!
[Maleficent turns into a dragon and Riku battles her]
Riku: Sora always did as he pleased. It doesn't matter what we were doing - he'd still go off and leave me with all the work. Take the raft we were gonna use to leave the islands. That was all me. I've made up my mind. When this slacker wakes up, I'm gonna tell him off good. I told him to take care of Kairi, and here he is taking a nap! But I can't chew him out if I've been sleeping, too. Keep your lock. I'd rather just finish Ansem off once and for all.
Namine: But if the darkness he wields gets the better of you...
Riku: I'll make that darkness show me the way.
Namine: That's true.
Riku: Why do I get the feeling you knew I'd say that?
Namine: I didn't know. I hoped. I want you to face the darkness, because you're the one who can.
Riku: So that's why you came to me in the light.
[In the Key to Truth room at Hollow Bastion]
Maleficent: You've done well to make it this far, Beast. As your reward, I'll tell you why Belle rejected you. My dark magic requires hearts of utmost beauty. Belle was perfect. Deep in her heart, her love for you shone with uncommon radiance. But she guessed my plans. By denying her love for you, she put her heart beyond my reach.
Beast: But she saved me! She protected me!
Sora: She couldn't hide how she really felt...
Beast: I've heard enough! Release her heart, Maleficent! If you don't...
Maleficent: Hm hm hm...
Beast: Witch! Do not try my patience!
Maleficent: Don't you realize why I am telling you all this? Did you think it was out of kindness? I did it to erase your doubts. Now your heart is beginning to shine with love for Belle. The perfect fuel for my dark magic! I shall have your heart, too, monster!
Sora: Not if we stop you!
Maleficent: You dare to challenge me? Pitiful fools!
[Maleficent turns into a dragon and the party battles her]
[Captain Hook ambushes Sora's party on the deck of his ship]
Captain Hook: I'll teach you to stow away on Captain Hook's vessel! Friends of Peter Pan, I'll wager!
Donald Duck: Are we his friends?
Goofy Goof: He sure didn't seem to think so.
Sora: Yeah, the way he took off like that. He even ditched Wendy.
Captain Hook: I'm not finished talking yet! How dare you ignore me and plot behind my back! Uncivilized brats! You're in cahoots with Peter Pan, no mistake!
Sora: If you say so. Either way, you're gonna let us off this ship.
Goofy Goof: And Wendy's coming with us.
Captain Hook: Think again, you scallywags! Hook's one step ahead of you!
[Wendy is seen with her hands tied behind her back and standing on the edge of a gangplank]
Captain Hook: Any trouble, and Wendy swims with the sharks!
Donald Duck: You wouldn't!
Captain Hook: Believe me, I'd rather not. After all, I need Wendy to lure out that blasted Peter Pan!
Vexen: Which is more real to you: your memories of Naminé, or the familiarity you feel here?
Sora: Naminé, of course! Whatever I feel here is just some trick of yours!
Vexen: Ha ha ha... The memory's wiles are cruel. In its silence, we forget. And in its perversion, it binds our hearts firmly.
Sora: I don't have time for your riddles!
Vexen: Then recall that this place was made from another side of your memory. Yes, the other side of your heart knows this place. The other side remembers.
Sora: You're wrong! I don't know this place!
Vexen: If you remain bound by the chains of memory, and refuse to believe your heart... then you may as well throw your heart away. You're no Keyblade master, no master of anything - just a slave to twisted memories. Just like my Riku. You're not fit to exist.
Sora: YOUR Riku? You're so full of it! YOU'RE the one who changed Riku, aren't you? Every word you've said is a lie! I'd never throw away my heart! I'm gonna take you down and save Riku and Naminé. THAT's what's in my heart!
Sora: What's wrong, little fella?
Winnie the Pooh: I'm looking for my friends.
Sora: Are they around here? It looks like nobody's here.
Winnie the Pooh: So I guess I'm looking for nobody.
Sora: Hmm? You're looking for nobody?
Winnie the Pooh: Yes. I keep looking, but I'm getting nowhere. All this searching is making me hungry. I wonder if there's a bit of honey around here. But if I start eating, I'll have to stop searching...
[Sora and co. meet Riku in the castle hall]
Sora: What are YOU doing here?
Riku: Don't sound so happy to see me, Sora. Let me know if I'm getting in the way of something more important.
Sora: No, of course not! I only meant...
Riku: Spare me. I bet you'd all but forgotten about me.
Sora: Are you crazy? I came all this way because I was LOOKING for YOU!
Riku: But not anymore, right? Now it's Naminé this, Naminé that. You don't care about me any more than you care about how Naminé feels.
Sora: What's that supposed to mean?
Riku: Never even gave it a thought, did you? Just 'cause you want to see Naminé doesn't mean it goes both ways.
[Riku finds himself on Destiny Islands]
Riku: I never thought I'd miss the island winds so much... Funny - there was a time I couldn't wait to get off this rock. And now I'm acting all relieved.
[Sora and co. find themselves in Monstro]
Sora: What a weird place! Everything's kinda springy and soft.
Goofy Goof: Nice and warm, too. I'm startin' to feel like a nap.
[Sora and co. meet up with Alice after they save her from the Queen of Hearts]
Alice: I don't mean to be ungrateful, but... was that true, what you said? Are you the thief?
Sora: What? Of course not! Why would I steal the queen's memory?
Goofy Goof: Yep, Sora only said that 'cause he wanted to save...
- to show off!
Alice: Is that right? Well, you saved me all the same. Thank you, Sora.
[Hades looks at a flyer for the Olympus Coliseum Survival Cup and focuses mostly on the part on it about Hercules]
Hades: Whoa-whoa-whoa, wait just a MINUTE! What is THIS? "Hercules is a model of true strength and gallantry - the perfect hero"?
[He goes into a rage]
Hades: Oh, he's perfect, all right. PERFECTLY INFURIATING! Just thinking about that little sunspot makes me boil! Grraah! I'd like to send him to the Underworld... permanently!
Cloud Strife: Which is why you hired me.
Hades: [simmering down] That's right. You're my man... Cloud. Your job is to beat Hercules in the games. And once you've got him cornered... finish the job. Do that for me, and...
Cloud Strife: You restore my lost memories. As we agreed.
Hades: You have my word.
Axel: [before fighting Sora for the last time] Listen, Sora. We've got more in common than you think. I'd rather not fight you... but I do have a reputation to think of!
Unknown: [to Sora's party] The moment you set foot in this castle, you forgot every spell and ability you knew... though the forgetting does not end there. In this place, to find is to lose and to lose is to find. That is the way of things in Castle Oblivion.
Donald Duck: Something funny's going on... How could everything Jiminy wrote vanish like that?
Sora: Maybe it's not just stuff we write down. Goofy said we've been to some other castle. But I don't remember it at all. None of us really do. Maybe... Maybe we don't remember because those memories are gone.
Donald Duck: Gone? Don't be ridiculous!
Jiminy Cricket: Wait! Remember what that guy in the black hood said? "In this place, to find is to lose and to lose is to find." He was talking about memories!
Sora: So if we keep going, we'll lose our memories... No wonder they call it Castle Oblivion.
Donald Duck: So... the higher we go, the more we forget? What if we forget everything and can't get it back?
Sora: I'd forget Riku and Kairi, too...
DiZ: Blanketed by the darkness, sleep is safety, sleep is eternal.
Goofy Goof: It's easier to face the scary stuff when you've got a promise to keep!
Riku: Hey, Voice. DiZ. Who are you?
DiZ: Nobody... or anybody. It all depends on whether you choose to believe in me or not.
Riku: Boy, you really like pushing decisions on other people.
DiZ: And you pushed away slumber and chose to face Ansem.
Riku: What, wrong answer?
DiZ: It was your answer. I'm just here to watch.
Riku: "Watch," as in support me, or "watch me get toasted"?
DiZ: You choose. Then you need only believe in your choice.
Cheshire Cat: [to Sora's party] If you can't remember something, it's like it never happened. Likewise, if something never happened, you can't remember it. Try too hard to remember, and your memory might lie to you.
Winnie the Pooh: [to Sora] Even if you forget Pooh, I won't forget you!
Peter Pan: Look, Wendy, about London... Are you sure you won't change your mind?
Wendy Darling: Peter, I'm sorry. But I really want to go home.
Peter Pan: I was afraid of that... Everyone grows up - and grownups always forget. First you'll forget what it feels like to be a kid, and then you'll forget about me.
Wendy Darling: How can you say such a thing, Peter? I'll never forget you.
Peter Pan: Sure, that's what you think now. But when you try to remember me, the memories will be gone. You'll forget - little by little, one memory at a time. Once you're grown up, there won't be a single memory left.
Axel: All the actors are in place. Now, Sora! Naminé! Riku! Marluxia! Larxene! It's about time you gave me one hell of a show!
Larxene: [to Sora about Riku] That thing lying there is a puppet Vexen made. Nothing more than a toy. It's laughable, really. It called you a fake, but IT was the fabrication all along.
[at Hollow Bastion]
Beast: [to Belle] My hideous form is punishment for being selfish and unable to love. Transformed into a monster, loved by no one, I only became more selfish. And then I met you, Belle. You're the only person who accepted me. Little by little, you warmed my cold, selfish heart. The memories of our days together are my most precious. I won't cast them aside. So I'm sorry, but I can't leave you here... even if you hate me for it. Consider it my final selfish act.
Lexaeus: The Organization used to be the rope that binds us. And now it's full of kinks.
[Sora's party and Aladdin are being threatened by the Heartless]
Donald Duck: They just keep coming!
Aladdin: Guess we'd better see if the legends are true.
[he holds up the lamp]
Aladdin: Magic lamp, my first wish! Get rid of these Heartless!
[the Genie appears]
Genie: Did someone say "wish"? Then stand back, kids, genie of the lamp coming through! There ain't nothin' I can't make right as rain. Well, if we HAD rain. But enough dry jokes! One Heartless disappearing act, coming right up!
[the Genie makes the Heartless disappear]
Goofy Goof: Gawrsh!
Donald Duck: Why didn't you call him in the first place?
Aladdin: It's not that simple. You see...
Genie: I couldn't have said it better myself. But I will anyway! I'm strictly limited to three wishes per master. And no wishing for more wishes!
Sora: So you've got two wishes left? Better use them carefully.
[Sora's party arrives in Twilight Town]
Goofy Goof: Gawrsh... Where are we, Sora?
Sora: Hmm... I dunno... I've never been here.
Donald Duck: Me neither.
Jiminy Cricket: But that can't be right! Up until now we've only been to places in Sora's memory.
Sora: Maybe so, but I definitely don't remember this.
Donald Duck: Maybe you forgot this town just like the other stuff.
Sebastian: Ariel! Ariel! Where are you, girl? If you can hear me, please answer!
Ariel: It's Sebastian! He came all this way just to find me.
Goofy Goof: Yep, and when he does, you're gonna get it!
Sora: Hey, I know! Why don't you just say Ursula stole the trident? And you got it back all by yourself! Then there's no way you'll get in trouble!
Ariel: I just had the same idea! But... I can't do that. I don't want to get in trouble, but I can't lie. Not about this. I know I haven't made the best decisions lately. It was a mistake to take the trident. But I made that mistake because I wanted to help you, Flounder. I'm proud of that. Blaming someone else would mean giving those feelings up. So, I'm going to tell the truth.
Jiminy Cricket: She's right, Sora! Honesty is the best policy.
Sora: Hey, I was just kidding! Great, now I'M the one in hot water!
[Sora and co. arrive in Atlantica]
Goofy Goof: Gawrsh! This looks like the bottom of the sea.
Sora: It sure does. So how come we can breathe?
Goofy Goof: Hm... beats me! Maybe someone cast a spell on us?
Sora: It's just like breathing air!
Donald Duck: But it's not air. See? Someone's swimming this way!
[They see Ariel swimming toward them]
Larxene: Now what, Vexen? Looks like your little toy isn't taking orders anymore.
Axel: Now Larxene... Shouldn't we give Vexen the benefit of the doubt? Riku could be hiding as part of some elaborate plan to lure Sora deeper into the castle.
Larxene: Oh, of course! Why didn't I see it before? Terribly sorry, Vexie. I guess I'm just used to you and your research being more funny than formidable.
Vexen: Hold your tongue!
Larxene: Aww, are you sulking? Ha ha, you are so half-baked.
Cid Highwind: Well, whaddaya know. It's Sora! Wait, what am I saying? I don't know you. But you do look like a Sora, what with the spiky hair and baggy pants... Guess I just call 'em like I see 'em.
Sora: It's okay, Cid. That's my name.
Cid Highwind: So you've heard of me! Well, I can't say as I'm surprised.
