Quotes

Tony: Where the hell are we?

Percy: Geographically speaking, in the Northern Hemisphere. Socially, on the margins. And narratively, with some way to go.

Tony: Don't shoot the messenger!

Tony: If Doctor Parnassus can really control people's mind, why isn't he ruling the world,then? Eh? Why bother with this little... side show?

Anton: 'Side show'? He don't... he don't want to rule the world. He wants the world to rule itself!

Anton: Ladies and gentleman, ladies and gentleman... this world, this world that we live in is full of enchantment for those with eyes to see it. Chicken!

[throws a chicken at the audience]

Tony: Don't believe everything you read. Especially The Mirror.

Dr. Parnassus: Percy, what would I do without you?

Percy: Get a midget.

Tony: Nothing is permanent, not even death.

Anton: [after saving Tony] Hey, he's alive!

Percy: He was.

Dr. Parnassus: There are three cardinal rules, Mr. Nick. One, there is no black magic, only cheap tricks and... I forget the others.

Tony: Can you put a price on your dreams?

Dr. Parnassus: [Absorbed in telling Valentina the story] Your mother and I went away together, grew old, and one day she came to me and told me she was pregnant! Can you believe it, at sixty and pregnant. A miracle.

Valentina: [Begins to weep] A miracle or a mistake?

Dr. Parnassus: [sighs, remembering his deal] You were the best mistake I ever made.
