Capitalism: A Love Story (2009)
Michael Moore: Do you have any advice for me?
Wall Street Professional: Don't make any more movies.
Michael Moore: I refuse to live in a country like this, and I'm not leaving.
Israelite: You say the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. But when exactly will it be?
Jesus: When you deregulate the banking industry.
Michael Moore: [Narrating] This is capitalism. A system of taking and giving... mostly taking.
Rich Man: Master! What must I do to have eternal life?
Jesus: Go forth and maximize profits.
Michael Moore: [Regarding the February, 2009 crash of Continental flight 3407 in Buffalo, New York] No one survived the crash, and 50 people lost their lives. The Media focused on the actions of the pilots.
Continental air crash reporter: Capt. Marvin Renslow and First Officer Shaw were chatting about their careers.
Michael Moore: "Careers" is a euphemism for what the pilots were really talking about: how little they were paid, and how overworked they were. There would be no discussion in the Media about why we have an economic system that allows a pilot to be paid less than a manager at Taco Bell.
Rep. Dennis Kucinich: Is this the United States Congress, or the board of directors of Goldman Sachs?
Arnold Schwarzenegger: I left Europe four decades ago because of Socialism has killed opportunities there.
Cleveland Tourism Guy: [singing] It could be worse, though/at least we're not Detroit! We're not Detroit!
Michael Moore: No, they're not Detroit!
Chesley Sullenberger: Flying has been my lifelong passion. But while I love my profession, I do not like what has happened to it. It is my personal experience that my decision to remain in the profession I love has come at a great financial cost to me and to my family. My pay has been cut 40%. My pension, like most airline pensions, has been terminated. So please do not think I exaggerate when I say that I do not know a single professional airline pilot who wants his or her children to follow in their footsteps.
George W. Bush: [speaking at the Manhattan Institute] Capitalism offers people the freedom to choose where they work and what they do.
Lady in Restaurant: [reading the classified ads] There isn't anything in here. I'm not going to be a gentlemen's club hire dancer either.
Man with palsy: Please help me. I've been this way for over 20 years.
Jesus: I'm sorry. I cannot heal your preexisting condition. He'll have to pay out of pocket.
Michael Moore: You know, I can't really do this anymore, unless those of you who are watching this in the theater want to join me. I hope you will. And please... speed it up.
Michael Moore: Many people didn't realize that we have an actual socialist in the Senate... although he is from the gay state of Vermont.
A cow: I do!
Baron Hill: I've got Michael Moore with me. You know who Michael Moore is, don't you? The film director. He's filming me right now.
Michael Moore: [through a bullhorn outside the New York Stock Exchange] Federal prison is a nice place!
Don Regan: [to Ronald Reagan] You're gonna have to speed it up.
Michael Moore: Who tells the President to speed it up?

Michael Moore: The man from Merrill Lynch, that's who.
