Johnny Blaze: [voiceover] It doesn't matter how far you run, there are some demons you just can't escape. My name is Johnny Blaze, I used to ride a motorcycle for a living. I did a bare ass 360 triple back flip in front of twenty two thousand people. It's kind of funny, it's on Youtube, check it out. But when my dad got sick, I did something way crazier than that.
Roarke: You look like you can use a little help, are you willing to make a deal, John?
Johnny Blaze: Do it, save his life, do it!
Johnny Blaze: Yeah that is right, I'm the guy who made a deal with the devil. Now I know what your thinking, does kid ever watch movies, does this ever work out fine? Well, let's just say good judgement wasn't exactly my forte. I was possessed by an ancient demon, in the presence of evil, I change into a monster, and I pray on the wicked, and I suck out their souls. And you don't want to be around when that happens, see there's good and bad in all of us, and maybe you're not a murderer, but you did something that you didn't want the Rider to see, a white lie, and illegal download, what about you? And you? I've tried to fight it, to hold it back, but the darkness inside me only get's stronger. That's why I had to run, halfway across the world, and I'm still running.
Danny: What if you have to pee while you're on fire?
Johnny Blaze: Oh, it's awesome. It's like a flamethrower You know, it's like:
[scene of Ghost Rider urinating fire]
Roarke: [to Ghost Rider] You! Worst fucking deal I ever made.
Johnny Blaze: That's the guy? He looks like he works on a cruise ship.
Nadya: Am I gonna regret taking you?
Johnny Blaze: Um, yeah, probably.
Johnny Blaze: When we get where we're going, the Rider's going to come out. And when he does... he'll destroy whoever's got it coming. Nadya, this thing... there's no reason, no conscience, just hunger. In his eyes, you're no different than Carrigan. You're no different than any of them.
Nadya: I'm not afraid of you.
Johnny Blaze: Yeah? Well, you should be.
Johnny Blaze: [to Vasil] You will tell me or I will eat your stinking soul!
Ghost Rider: Go home.
[Ghost Rider slams Roarke into the ground, sending him back to Hell]
Johnny Blaze: Um, I know that it's a little awkward. I mean, rolling with you guys. I mean, after everything you've been through...
Danny: Dude. You're way cooler than the other guys she usually hangs out with.
Ray Carrigan: I was never afraid of you.
[Throws Carrigan off the truck and he gets run over]
Ghost Rider: Roadkill.
Ray Carrigan: [after Roarke turns him into Blackout] What did you do to me?
Roarke: I gave you a second chance, you're a little less than alive, now. but also more!
[tosses a piece of wood to Blackout which crumbles]
Roarke: See, I've given you power. The power of decay... of darkness.
Roarke: [answering phone] Carrigan!
Ray Carrigan: I got your package but the cost of doing business with me just went up.
Roarke: I don't understand.
Ray Carrigan: What's not to understand? I want more. You understand that?
Roarke: We had an agreement, Carrigan. Changing the defined terms of an agreement is something we just don't do.
Ray Carrigan: You told me to get a kid. Not a problem. I've done that with people before. And I have a history with his bitch of a mom, so there's no better guy for the job. But what you didn't tell me, is that I'd be walking into the middle of a goddamn horror movie.
Ray Carrigan: Oh, this is funny to you? Three of my guys get turned into matchsticks last night by a dude on a motorcycle with his head on fire.
Roarke: Come again?
Ray Carrigan: You heard me. I've seen things, weird things, bad things. But that thing last night? No. No, no, no.
Roarke: Put the boy on the phone.
Ray Carrigan: [holds phone to Danny's ear] Talk. Talk!
Roarke: Danny, do you hear me? I want you to listen very closely. Listen to me.
[whispers demonic talk into phone, Danny screams]
Ray Carrigan: What the hell was that?
Roarke: Think of the child as a sort of computer. You know computers, right? I just uploaded a little program. A firewall. Our friend on the motorcycle won't be able to sense him now, to track him. Of course, he still may be able to find you, so I suggest you keep moving.
Johnny Blaze: [voiceover] Why does the devil walk on human form anyway? I have no idea. Maybe he doesn't know either. Maybe he passes on from body to body, down through history, waiting for the perfect fit. But I know one thing, on Earth, he's weak. His powers are limited. He needs emissaries to do his dirty work, so he finds them or makes them, using his greatest power, the power of the deal.
Moreau: Without the Rider, we stand very little chance against Roarke.
Johnny Blaze: I thought you were supposed to have faith.
Moreau: I do. But also, I think we should have weapons.
Johnny Blaze: Guns and wine. Naughty priests.
Nadya: [touches an automatic gun] I'm starting to like you again, Moreau.
Vasil: I got what you need for the shakes, my friend.
Johnny Blaze: Carrigan must have told about that thing that killed his men last night, huh? Yeah? That thing is inside of me. See, you're a bad man, and this thing, the Rider, he feeds on bad men. And he's hungry. He's hungrier than he's been in years. That's why I'm shaking! Because right now the only thing that's standing between you and the Rider is me. And he's just - He's...
Johnny Blaze: He's scraping at the door. Scraping at the door! And if you don't tell what I wanna know, I'm gonna let him out. And when he's done with you, there won't be anything left, you understand?
[Carrigan is pinned under rubble of concrete]
Roarke: You're not done, Carrigan. You were to bring me Nadya's son. I do expect you to fulfill your obligation.
Ray Carrigan: Sorry, jackass, but I'm dead.
Johnny Blaze: What is it? This thing inside of me? I'd like to know before we, uh, commence.
Moreau: Hm. Zarathos was an angel, a Spirit of Justice. Sent to protect the world of men. But he was tricked, captured, brought down to Hell, corrupted. Driven insane. Heh. His mission to protect the innocent was perverted into a lust to punish the guilty. He became the Spirit of Vengeance.
Johnny Blaze: Yeah, but the angel, the Spirit of Justice, he's alive in there? Somewhere?
Moreau: He could be. Do you feel him?
Johnny Blaze: No.
Moreau: Cheer up, my man. Soon, you will be free.
Roarke: You wanted to know why I look this way. Think of... a flamethrower.
[scene of Ghost Rider urinating fire]
Roarke: Is that funny? Okay. A flamethrower made of papier-mâché. All that power. But try to use it, you burn up. This body I'm living in, it's weak, human. It's dying. It was never made to things that I can do. But you... you're only part human. You have all the power that I have inside of you. Like father, like son.
[leans on to touch Danny, Danny shrugs him off]
Roarke: But this corporeal form can wield the power without burning itself up.
Nadya: When you met the seducer, he offered you something.
Johnny Blaze: Yeah. My father's life. Shocker, he lied.
Nadya: For me, it was only myself. It was suppose to be a big score for Carrigan, but it went bad. I made it out of the third-floor window. I was choking on my own blood. I knew I was gonna die. I could feel it. And that's when he found me.
Roarke: [flash back] You look like you could use a little help.
Johnny Blaze: Roarke.
Nadya: He promised to take the pain away to save my life. But he asked for something in return.
Johnny Blaze: A son?
Nadya: Maybe can never understand.
Johnny Blaze: No, I get it. You're the Devil's baby mama.
Ghost Rider: [after knocking out Carrigan with a Bagger 288] Sorry, does it hurt? It looks like it does.
[Moreau tosses a wine bottle through a window, Johnny backs up into a corner]
Moreau: Ah, so it likes the dark places.
Johnny Blaze: I don't know what you're talking about.
Moreau: The Rider.
Johnny Blaze: Yeah. Black, French, alcoholic priest, kind of a dick. Why, do you know him?
Moreau: The day of prophecy is tomorrow. We were to hold the boy until the danger passes.
Methodius: The danger will not pass, Moreau. As long as the boy exists, the power will always be inside him.
Moreau: You lied to me. You lied to me!
Methodius: This child must be destroyed.
Nadya: No! No!
Methodius: You might have protested while the child was being conceived. Now it is too late.
Ray Carrigan: [after launching a missile at Ghost Rider] I'm sorry, did that hurt? It looked like it did.
Moreau: Respectfully, Benedict, the Devil himself wants this child. Only one place is safe. That is the Sanctuary. The Rider must take him.
Benedict: You do enjoy your wine, Moreau. In a few days the winter solstice will be past and with it the hour of the prophecy. Then the boy will be no use to anyone.
Moreau: By that time, brother, you will all be dead.
Johnny Blaze: There's no sign of him.
Moreau: Whoever did this wanted him alive.
Johnny Blaze: Well I think we all have a pretty good idea who that would be, Moreau.
Nadya: Yes, so now he's with Roarke. Some protectors you turned out to be.
Johnny Blaze: What exactly does Roarke want with Danny? What are his plans for his son? Is he putting money away for college? What?
Moreau: It is the day of prophecy. As was the day Danny was conceived. The child must be in his 13th year before the rite can be performed on the dawn of a new winter.
Johnny Blaze: The rite.
Moreau: Roarke fathered the boy as a vessel, as a container for his power. The ritual will transform his essence, his soul into the boy. There will be no more Danny. Only Roarke.
Johnny Blaze: Why the hell didn't you tell us this, Moreau?
Moreau: Hey. You are the one who that made a deal with Roarke! Both of you! Something I would never do.
Johnny Blaze: All right. The prophecy, you said it had to happen at the dawn of a new day. Well, that's good. Maybe there's still time. Do you know where Roarke has him?
Moreau: I think so. Yes.
Nadya: What, so now you want to play hero? You got what you wanted.
Johnny Blaze: Yes, I did. Thank you for holding up your end of the bargain.
Moreau: Your welcome.
Johnny Blaze: If I can spend the rest of my life as a free man without a curse from Hell hanging over my head, yeah, I'll take it. But I promised Danny he'd be safe. If I walk away now, I'm just trading one demon for another. Let's go.
Johnny Blaze: [after Moreau enters Johnny's apartment grabbing his shirt] Who are you?
Moreau: I'm Moreau, my brothers are dead, as should I if it not would have been for the intervention of God, and you are Johnny Blaze.
Johnny Blaze: Go away.
Ghost Rider: [to thug before using the Penance Stare] Hungry!
Moreau: We thought you can control it, make it work for you, huh? That you were stronger than this hungrier thing, this sickness...
Johnny Blaze: [Johnny hits Moreau with his chain and chokes him] Why are you here? What do you want from me?
Moreau: I need your help, and you need your soul. So we make a deal. You know something about making deals, don't you Johnny?
[Johnny releases his chain around his throat]
Moreau: Nice bike.
[Moreau pulls out picture of Danny]
Moreau: This child is in danger, and for more than his life. You will save him.
Johnny Blaze: I don't save people.
Moreau: [laughs] What brought you out here, Johnny Blaze? Thousands of miles from your place of birth, and your dark rebirth, you were brought here for this.
Johnny Blaze: This little kid, what makes you think I can find him?
Moreau: This man that you met many years ago, that put the curse on you...
Johnny Blaze: Roarke.
Moreau: The Devil has many names. He is the link that connects you to this child. Let the Rider follow his stench that will lead to the boy.
Johnny Blaze: You said something about a deal.
Moreau: The church of my masters is an ancient one. We are prepared to give to you the one thing you want most of this world, bring us the boy, and we will lift your curse.
Johnny Blaze: [drinks Moreau's wine] This might be good on a salad.
Toma Nikasevic: 50 GM 148 Javelin, lock on, fire, and forget. American bunker-buster, two stage detonation. The first creates a super vacuum, it sucks the oxygen from the air. The next...
Ray Carrigan: [cutting him off] I know what it does, give me four of them, with extra heads.
Toma Nikasevic: How many men you go up against?
Ray Carrigan: Just one.
[Toma and his crew laugh]
