Total Recall (1990) Poster


Ronny Cox: Cohaagen



  • Douglas Quaid : Well, Cohaagen, I have to hand it to you. It's the best mind-fuck yet.

    Vilos Cohaagen : Oh, don't take my word for it. Someone you trust wants to talk to you.

    Douglas Quaid : Who is it this time, my mother?

  • Vilos Cohaagen : [after Cohaagen's team kills Kuato]  So this is the great man. Hmph. No wonder he kept out of sight. Well, my friend...

    [puts his hands on Quaid's shoulders] 

    Vilos Cohaagen :'re a hero.

    Douglas Quaid : Fuck you!

    Vilos Cohaagen : Don't be modest. Kuato is dead. The resistance has been completely wiped out and you were the key to the whole thing.

    Douglas Quaid : [to Melina]  He's lying.

    Melina : [to Quaid]  You two-faced bastard!

    Vilos Cohaagen : You can't blame him, princess.

    [His finger grazes Melina's face] 

    Vilos Cohaagen : He's innocent. You see, Quaid, none of my people could get close to Kuato. Fuckin' mutants could always sniff us out. So Hauser and I sat down and invented you: the perfect mole.

    Douglas Quaid : You know you're lying. Hauser turned against you.

    Vilos Cohaagen : Uh-uh. That's what we wanted you to think. Fact is, Hauser volunteered to become "Doug Quaid." It was the only way to fool the psychics.

    Douglas Quaid : Get your story straight.

    [Points to Richter] 

    Douglas Quaid : This idiot has been trying to kill me ever since I went to Rekall. You don't kill someone you're trying to plant.

    Vilos Cohaagen : He wasn't in on it. You set him off by going to Rekall.

    Douglas Quaid : So, why I am still alive?

    Vilos Cohaagen : We gave you lots of help.

    [points to Benny] 

    Vilos Cohaagen : Benny here...

    Benny : [to Quaid]  My pleasure, man.

    Vilos Cohaagen : The guy with the suitcase, the mask, the money, the message from Hauser. All of that was set up by us.

    Douglas Quaid : Sorry. Too perfect.

    Vilos Cohaagen : Perfect, my ass! You pop your memory cap before we can activate you. Richter goes hog-wild screwing up everything that I spent a year planning. Frankly... I'm amazed it worked!

    Douglas Quaid : Well, Cohaagen. I've got to hand it to you. It's the best mind-fuck yet.

  • Douglas Quaid : Come on, Cohaagen! You got what you want. Give those people air!

    Vilos Cohaagen : My friend, in five minutes, you won't give a shit about the people. Fire it up, Doc!

    Richter : Excuse me, Doctor, is he gonna remember any of this?

    Doctor : Not a thing.

    Richter : Oh, really?

    [Richter punches Quaid in his face. Quaid angrily glares back at Richter] 

    Vilos Cohaagen : Oh, Quaid, I'm having a party tonight. Why don't you and Melina drop by? Remind him, Doc?

    Doctor : Sure.

    Richter : See you at the party.

  • Richter : You have to make a decision, sir.

    Vilos Cohaagen : Kill him.

    Richter : It's about goddamn time.

  • Vilos Cohaagen : Kuato wants what's in Quaid's head, and he might be able to get it 'cause they say he's psychic; and I have a plan to keep this from happening. Do you think you could play along?

    Richter : Yes, sir.

    Vilos Cohaagen : Great, 'cause otherwise, I'll erase your ass!

  • Vilos Cohaagen : [Cohaagen has Quaid strapped into a memory machine and is about to turn him back into Hauser]  Relax, Quaid. You'll like being Hauser.

    Douglas Quaid : The guy's a fucking asshole!

    Vilos Cohaagen : Not true! He's one of my best friends. Besides, he's got a big house and a Mercedes and... you like Melina, right? Well, you get to fuck her every night. That's right, she's going to be Hauser's babe.

    Melina : [also strapped into a memory machine]  I'll bust his balls!

    Vilos Cohaagen : Uh-uh, Princess. We're having you fixed. You're gonna be respectful, compliant, and appreciative... the way a woman should be.

    [she spits in his face] 

  • Vilos Cohaagen : What the fuck is going on down there?

    Richter : I'm trying to neutralize a traitor, Sir.

    Vilos Cohaagen : If I wanted him dead, you moron, I wouldn't have dumped him on Earth!

    Richter : We can't let him run around. He knows too much.

    Vilos Cohaagen : Lori says he can't remember jack shit!

    Richter : That's now. In an hour, he could have total recall.

    Vilos Cohaagen : Listen to me, Richter, I want Quaid delivered alive for re-implantation. Have you got that? I want him back in place with Lori.

  • Technician : Sir, the oxygen level is bottoming out in Sector G. What do you want me to do about it?

    Vilos Cohaagen : [as if obvious]  Don't do anything.

    Technician : But they won't last an hour, sir.

    Vilos Cohaagen : Fuck 'em. It'll be a good lesson to the others.

  • Richter : You wanted to see me sir.

    Vilos Cohaagen : Richter, you know why I'm such a happy person?

    Richter : No, sir.

    Vilos Cohaagen : Because I have one of the greatest jobs in the solar system. As long as the turbinium keeps flowing, I can do anything I want. Anything!

    [gets up from his chair] 

    Vilos Cohaagen : In fact, the only thing I worry about is, one day, if the rebels win, it all might end.

    [In Richter's face] 

    Vilos Cohaagen : And you're FUCKING MAKING IT HAPPEN! First, you tried to kill Quaid and then you let him get away.

    Richter : He had help from our side, sir.

    Vilos Cohaagen : I know that.

    Richter : But, I thought...

    Vilos Cohaagen : [interrupting]  Who told you to THINK? I don't give you enough information to THINK! You do as you're told, THAT'S WHAT YOU DO!

  • Vilos Cohaagen : Don't touch that! Get away! Get back!

    Douglas Quaid : What are you afraid of? Turn it on.

    Vilos Cohaagen : Impossible! Once the reaction starts, it'll spread to all the turbinium in the planet. Mars will go into global meltdown. That's why the aliens never turned it on.

    Douglas Quaid : And you expect me to believe you?

    Vilos Cohaagen : Who gives a shit what you believe? In thirty seconds you'll be dead, and I'll blow this place up and be home in time for Corn Flakes.

    [Shoots several inches near Quaid] 

    Vilos Cohaagen : I didn't want it to end this way, I wanted Hauser back, but no... you had to be Quaid!

    Douglas Quaid : I am Quaid!

    Vilos Cohaagen : You're nothing! You're nobody! You're a stupid dream! Well, all dreams come to an end.

  • Richter : [into the video phone]  Richter here. We've got them pinned down.

    Vilos Cohaagen : Stop fighting and pull out.

    Richter : But they've got Quaid! They're protecting him!

    Vilos Cohaagen : Perfect! Get out of Sector G, now.

    Richter : But...

    Vilos Cohaagen : Don't think. Do it!

    Richter : [as he hangs up; angry and frustrated]  Yes, sir!

  • Douglas Quaid : Come on, Cohaagen! You got what you want. Give those people air!

    Vilos Cohaagen : In five minutes, you won't give a SHIT about any of those people!
