Total Recall (1990) Poster


Sharon Stone: Lori



  • Lori : Doug, honey... you wouldn't hurt me, would you, sweetheart? Sweetheart, be reasonable. After all, we're married!

    [Lori goes for her gun, Quaid shoots her in the head, killing her] 

    Douglas Quaid : Consider that a divorce!

  • Lori : No wonder you're having nightmares. You're always watching the news.

  • Lori : Sorry, Quaid. Your whole life is just a dream.

  • Douglas Quaid : That's right.

    Dr. Edgemar : Well, maybe this will convince you. Would you mind opening the door?

    Douglas Quaid : [Holds his gun to Edgemar's chin]  You open it.

    Dr. Edgemar : No need to be rude, I'll open it.

    [Goes tot he door and opens it, revealing Lori] 

    Douglas Quaid : [Shocked]  Oh, guessing that you're not here either.

    Lori : I'm here, at Rekall. I love you.

    Douglas Quaid : Right, that's why you tried to kill me.

    Lori : No. I wouldn't do anything to hurt you. I want you to come back to me.

    Douglas Quaid : Bullshit.

    Dr. Edgemar : What's bullshit Mr. Quaid? Afraid to admit that you're having a schizo paranoid episode, or are you really an invincible secret agent from Mars, who is in the middle of an interplanetary conspiracy to make him think that he's a lonley construction worker. Stop punishing yourself Doug, you're a fine upstanding man you have a beautiful wife who loves you, you have a whole life ahead of you. But you gotta want to return to reality.

    Douglas Quaid : If I wanted to return, then what?

    Dr. Edgemar : [Takes out a pill]  Swallow this.

    Douglas Quaid : What is it.

    Dr. Edgemar : It's a symbol for your desire to return to reality. In your dreams you'll fall asleep.

    [Quaid takes the pill] 

    Douglas Quaid : Okay. Let's say you're telling the truth and this is all a dream.

    [Puts his gun against Edgemar's head] 

    Douglas Quaid : But I could pull this trigger and it won't matter.

    Lori : Don't, Doug.

    Dr. Edgemar : Oh it wouldn't make the slighteat difference to me Doug. But the consequences to you will be devestating, because in your mind I'll be dead, and with no one to guide you out you'll be stuck in permenant psychosis.

    Lori : Let Dr. Edgemar help you.

    Dr. Edgemar : The walls of reality will come crashing down. One minutie, you'll be the savior of the rebel cause, and the nest thing you know you'll be Cohaagan's Bosom Buddy, you'll also have fantasies about alien civilizations as you requested. But in the end back on Earth, you'll be lobotomized. So get a grip on yourself Doug and put down that gun.

    [Quaid lowers his gun] 

    Dr. Edgemar : Take the pill and put it in your mouth.

    [Quaid puts the pill in his mouth] 

    Dr. Edgemar : Swallow it.

    [Quaid pans around batween Edgemar and Lori, then as a sweat drop runs down Edgemar's face Quaid shoots Edgemar in the head, and spits the pill out] 

    Lori : Now you've done it, now you've done it.

  • Lori : [Kicks Doug in the face]  That's for making me come to Mars.

    [kicks his groin] 

    Lori : You know how much I hate this fucking planet!

  • Lori : Listen to me, Sweetheart. Those assholes at Rekall have fucked up your mind. You're having paranoid delusions.

    [Quaid holds up his bloodied hands] 

    Douglas Quaid : You call this a delusion?

  • [Lori tries to distract Quaid by acting sexy, but he quickly he catches on] 

    Douglas Quaid : Clever girl!

    [He points a gun at her head] 

    Lori : You wouldn't kill me, would you, honey? After all we've been through...?

    Douglas Quaid : [Thinking it over]  Some of it was fun.

    [He suddenly punches her, knocking her out] 

    Douglas Quaid : Nice knowing you.

    [He leaves] 

  • Lori : I love you.

    Douglas Quaid : Right. That's why you tried to kill me.

    Lori : No... I would never do anything to hurt you. I want you to come back to me.

    Douglas Quaid : Bullshit.

    Dr. Edgemar : What's bullshit, Mr. Quaid? That you're having a paranoid episode triggered by acute neuro-chemical trauma? Or that you're really an invincible secret agent from Mars who's the victim of an interplanetary conspiracy to make him think he's a lowly construction worker? Stop punishing yourself, Doug. You're a fine, upstanding man. You have a beautiful wife who loves you. Your whole life is ahead of you. But you've got to want to return to reality.

  • [first lines] 

    [Doug awakens from a nightmare] 

    Lori : Doug? Honey, are you all right?


    Lori : You were dreaming. Doug? Was it about Mars?


    Lori : [kisses him]  Is that better?

    Douglas Quaid : Hmm.

    Lori : My poor baby. This is getting to be an obsession.
