Tomorrow, When the War Began (2010)
Ellie Linton: Good book?
Corrie Mackenzie: Better than the movie.
Ellie Linton: Yeah, books usually are.
Robyn Mathers: Uh, Fi. Why did you go into the river?
Fiona Maxwell: To get away from the snake ofcourse.
Ellie Linton: You do know that snakes can swim right?
Fiona Maxwell: No they cant.
Ellie Linton: Uh, yeah they can.
Fiona Maxwell: They don't have fins. They slither!
Corrie Mackenzie: They slither through water.
Fiona Maxwell: No they don't.
Homer Yannos: Well, what about sea snakes?
Fiona Maxwell: Oh my god! I could have died!
Ellie Linton: [when they find a red-bellied black snake in a sleeping bag] Well, shake it.
[Homer shakes his arse]
Ellie Linton: The bag Beyonce!
Ellie Linton: We won't run. We won't hide, We'll fight and keep fighting. And never give up. Until this war is finally won.
Homer Yannos: It is an awesome feeling to know you are about to change someone's life forever.
Ellie Linton: A month ago, we were just an average bunch of teenagers, studying at school and complaining about our parents. Now were soldiers, trapped behind enemy lines and fighting to survive. But we wont run, we wont hide, we'll fight and keep fighting, we'll never give up until this war is finally won.
Ellie Linton: Do you remember how many hours we used to spend up here?
Corrie Mackenzie: You mean the tea parties?
Ellie Linton: We were so innocent back then. Now I, I feel like we were innocent right up until yesterday. God, we didn't believe in Santa Clause or anything like that. But no, we believed in other fantasies. We believed that we were safe. Guess that was the biggest fantasy of them all.
Ellie Linton: We're not going to hold back. Recording it like this, it's um, it's so important to us. I guess it's our way of telling us that things matter. That we mean something. Maybe... some of the things we've done... The friends that we've lost, hopefully it all makes a difference somehow.
[regaining her composure]
Ellie Linton: There's only one way to do this. And that's to go back to where this all began.
Ellie Linton: She wasn't much older than I was, and she looked just as scared, I'll never forget her.
Homer Yannos: We have to start acting like soldiers, one mistake and it's all over.
Ellie Linton: We might as well shoot each other now and get it over with.
Ellie Linton: We've all had to rewrite the scripts of our lives the last few weeks, we've learnt a lot and we've had to figure out whats important, what matters - what really matters. Its been quite a time.
