The Elephant Man (1980)
John Hurt: John Merrick
John Merrick : I am not an elephant! I am not an animal! I am a human being! I am a man!
John Merrick : People are frightened by what they don't understand.
John Merrick : My life is full because I know I am loved.
John Merrick : [after seeing pictures of Dr. Treves' family] Would you care to see my mother?
Dr. Frederick Treves : [surprised] Your mother? Yes please.
[John pulls out a small portrait]
Mrs. Treves : Oh but she's... Mr. Merrick, she's beautiful!
John Merrick : Oh, she had the face of an angel!
John Merrick : I must have been a great disappointment to her.
Mrs. Treves : No, Mr. Merrick, no. No son as loving as you could ever be a disappointment.
John Merrick : If only I could find her, so she could see me with such lovely friends here now; perhaps she could love me as I am. I've tried so hard to be good.
[Mrs. Treves begins to cry]
John Merrick : [haltingly] Hello... my name is... John Merrick.
