Eric: You fight until one of you can't anymore.
Four: Or until one of you concedes.
Eric: A brave man never backs down.
Four: Lucky for you, that wasn't a rule when we fought.
Four: Fear does something strange to people like Al. But not you. Fear doesn't shut you down, it wakes you up.
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: Can I ask you something?
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: What's your tattoo?
Four: You want to see it?
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: [nods and Four takes off his shirt] Its amazing. The factions. Why do you have all of them?
Four: I don't want to be just one thing. I can't be. I want to be brave, and I want to be selfless, intelligent, and honest and kind. Well, I'm still working on kind.
[smiles and kisses Tris]
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: And what if they already know?
Tori: Then you're already dead.
Peter: You wouldn't shoot me.
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: Why do people keep saying that?
[shoots Peter in the arm]
Four: You alright?
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: You cut me.
Four: I meant to.
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: You meant to?
Four: You think he's going to let you off without a scratch? You'd still be standing there if I hadn't hit you.
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: So am I supposed to thank you?
Four: You're supposed to be smart. If I wanted to hurt you, I would've.
Caleb Prior: You're nervous, aren't you?
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: Why would I be nervous? We just decide the rest of our lives.
Four: I know who you are. If you wanna survive, follow me.
Tori: You're different. You don't fit into a category. They can't control you. They call it Divergent. You can't let them find out about you.
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: We're like the Factionless now. We've left everything behind, but we found ourselves and each other. Tomorrow we may have to fight again, but for now we'll ride the train to the end of the line. And then, we'll jump.
Jeanine Matthews: The system removes the threat of anyone exercising their independent will. Divergents threaten that system. It won't be safe until they're removed.
Jeanine Matthews: The future belongs to those who know where they belong.
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: Don't try and define me.
Four: If you wanna survive, follow me.
Jeanine Matthews: Maybe you're not quite as "Dauntless" as you thought you were.
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: You're right. I'm "Divergent".
[catches hypo tossed by Four and plunges it into her neck]
Tori: You're different. You don't fit into a category. They can't control you. They call it Divergent.
Eric: She's not gonna shoot me.
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: I think you might be overestimating my character.
[shoots him in the leg]
Jeanine Matthews: You're a poor blend of impulses and impurities.
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: We're lucky to be in the city. They say the war was terrible, that the rest of the world was destroyed. Our founders built the wall to keep us safe, and they divided us into five groups, factions, to keep the peace. The smart ones, the ones who value knowledge and logic, are in Erudite. They know everything. Amity farm the land. They're all about kindness and harmony, always happy. Candor value honesty and order. They tell the truth, even when you wish they wouldn't. And then there's Dauntless. They're our protectors, our soldiers, our police. I always thought they were amazing. Brave, fearless and free. Some people think Dauntless are crazy, when they kind of are.
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: My faction is Abnegation. The others all call us "stiffs." We lead a simple life, selfless, dedicated to helping others. We even feed the Factionless, the ones who don't fit in anywhere. Because we're public servants, we're trusted to run the government. My father works alongside our leader, Marcus. It all works. Everyone knows where they belong. Except for me.
Christina: Have you never seen a hamburger before?
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: No I've seen one I've just never eaten one.
Will: Abnegation eat plain food, plant-based style without sauces and no minimums.
Christina: Which textbook did you swallow?
Will: Nice to meet you too. I'm Will, Erudite.
Christina: Of course you are. No offense but I'm surprised Abnegation even eats at all. To selfish right? No wonder you left.
Will: You gotta be pretty self confident to be friends with a Candor.
Christina: What is that supposed to mean?
Will: You say the first thing that comes into your head.
Al: You mean like, "you're an idiot"?
Christina: [Christina laughs] Nice one Al!
Jeanine Matthews: Maybe you're not as Dauntless as you think you are.
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: [injecting Jeanine with serum] No. I'm Divergent. Stop the simulation and wipe the program.
Jeanine Matthews: It's hard to let go. Faction before blood, it's an important ideal, but sometimes difficult to fulfill. It goes against our fundamental human nature. But that's exactly the weakness we need to overcome.
Beatrice 'Tris' Prior: You think that human nature is weakness?
Four: My name's Four.
Christina: Four, like the number?
Four: Exactly, like the number.
Christina: What happened, one through three were taken?
Four: What's your name?
Four: The first lesson you learn from me, if you wanna survive here, is keep your mouth shut. Do you understand me?
Christina: Is it just me, or are they trying to kill us?
Jeanine Matthews: Amazing, isn't it? Everything we think of that makes up a person - thoughts, emotions, history - all wiped away by chemistry.
Test Operative: The test didn't work on you.
