Quotes

Steve Montgomery: Yes, it was the black guy this time.

Matt Garetty: Andrew! Andrew, look at me! This has to stop right now, okay? This is really, really bad. What happened to you?

Andrew Detmer: Why did you catch him?

Matt Garetty: Listen, just focus okay?

Andrew Detmer: I dropped him! Why did you catch him?

Matt Garetty: Andrew, this is not a game, do you understand? You're hurting people!

Andrew Detmer: You're weak, Matt! You're all weak. I'm stronger than all of this!

Matt Garetty: Andrew, listen to me, okay? Just... I need you listen. Just focus for a second.

Andrew Detmer: Do not tell me what to do!

Matt Garetty: They can't stop us, it's not too late for us to go.

Andrew Detmer: It is too late. I'm done! It's over... god, you treated me like shit! You left me alone!

Matt Garetty: Andrew, you're not alone up here. I'm here with you! I should've been with you all along, but I'm here now. We can stop this right now, you and me. Andrew, we can just fly away, we can get out of here. We can be family! Andrew? Andrew, look at yourself. This isn't who you are!

Andrew Detmer: Apex predator...

Matt Garetty: What?

Andrew Detmer: I'm an apex predator!

Matt Garetty: Andrew, don't fart. We'll never find you again.

[last lines]

Matt Garetty: Hey, Andrew.

[pause]

Matt Garetty: I just wanted to say that... I'm sorry and, uh... I hope... that you know that I did what I had to do. You're not a bad person. I know that. That's all that matters. And, uh, I want you to know that I'm gonna be better from now on. I'm gonna help people. I'm gonna find out what happened to us down there. I don't care how long it takes. I'm gonna get answers. I'm gonna do it for you, and I'm gonna do it for Steve. And... I just... I love you, man. I didn't ever get a chance to tell you but I love you. And guess what.

[Matt moves the camera to show a Tibetan monastery in the background]

Matt Garetty: You made it. Whoo-hoo!

[pause]

Matt Garetty: Isn't it beautiful? Goodbye, Andrew.

Andrew Detmer: I've been doing a lot of reading, you know? Like, online about, like, just evolution and natural selection and how like there's this thing, right? It's called the apex predator, right? And basically what this is, is the strongest animal in the ecosystem, right? And as human beings, we're considered the apex predator but only because smaller animals can't feed on us because of weapons and stuff, right? A lion does not feel guilty when it kills a gazelle, right? You do not feel guilty when you squash a fly... and I think that means something. I just think that really means something.

Matt Garetty: There's something wrong with Andrew.

Andrew Detmer: Please believe me, Steve. Please, it's just I-I don't know what I did. I lost control, and I'm so sorry. This thing, it's just becoming a part of me now and I don't... I miss you, Steve.

Andrew Detmer: Wow, look, a rave.

Matt Garetty: Oh, wow, look. A nerd with a camera.

Matt Garetty: Dude. I haven't had sex since summer.

Andrew Detmer: I haven't had sex since ever.

Steve Montgomery: Really?

Andrew Detmer: Really?

Steve Montgomery: That is completely unacceptable.

Matt Garetty: Well...

Steve Montgomery: How are you guys so cool? How are you guys so cool, man?

Matt Garetty: Liquid nitrogen.

Andrew Detmer: [attacking his father] I could crush you! I could crush you!

[while Andrew is lying in a hospital bed, his father comes in]

Richard Detmer: Your mother's dead. She died last night while I was out looking for you. I came home and, uh... she was there in her bed. If I just could have been there more. You know, I was always there for her when you were out screwing around... and this one time... this... one time that she needed me, and you took me away. I want you to apologize to me. I know you can hear me, so I want you to sit up right now and apologize to me. You selfish, selfish asshole. This is your fault! You di...

[cuts to no audio from the camera]

Richard Detmer: DO HEAR ME? YOUR MOTHER IS DEAD AND IT IS YOUR FAULT!

Andrew Detmer: [to Steve] See, it's different, 'cause you've always had friends, and people want to talk to you and be around you. I never had any of that. I mean, before this, I barely even hung out with Matt, and he's my cousin. We were close when were little, but- I don't know. In high school, everything changed.

Matt Garetty: [yelling in joy] I can fly!

Matt Garetty: Oh, my God, I can see your head is, like exploding right now.

Andrew Detmer: What?

Matt Garetty: This is the beginning of your downfall - hubris - right there.

Andrew Detmer: What's "hubris"?

[Matt mocking laughs]

Andrew Detmer: No, what does "hubris" mean, Matt?

Matt Garetty: Seriously?

Andrew Detmer: What does "seriously" mean?

Richard Detmer: How you getting to school?

Andrew Detmer: I don't know what you mean.

Richard Detmer: Don't bullshit me, you idiot. Matt doesn't come. He didn't drive up. You leave the house. Who the hell is giving you rides to school?

Andrew Detmer: M-Matt.

Richard Detmer: All right. You know what? You're lying. You're up to something, and you can't hide it. You think you can just slink? Hmm? Sneaking, sneaking around my house, smiling? I'm onto your shit.

Andrew Detmer: Hey, Matt! Hey, what did Jung say about glow sticks?

[Matt gives the finger]
