Demolition Man (1993) Poster

Wesley Snipes: Simon Phoenix



  • John Spartan : Bad aim, Blondie!

    Simon Phoenix : Spartan? John Spartan? Aw shit, they let anybody into this century! What the hell you doing here?

  • John Spartan : Is it cold in here, or is it just me?

    Simon Phoenix : Good memory.

  • Simon Phoenix : Simon says, "Die."

  • Automated Announcer : The Armory exhibit is now sealed. All museum patrons still occupying the facility should remain calm. Help is imminent.

    [the sealed Armory door is blown apart by a canon] 

    Simon Phoenix : The museum is no longer sealed, is it? Ha-ha! What can I say, I'm a blast from the past!

    John Spartan : You should've stayed there.

    Simon Phoenix : Oh boy, that voice sounds familiar. Who is that?

    [opens fire] 

  • Simon Phoenix : Wait a minute, this is the future. Where are all the phaser guns?

  • Simon Phoenix : Simon says, "Bleed."

  • Booth : Gun. Noun. Portable firearm. This device was widely utilized in the urban wars of the late twentieth century. Referred to as a pistol, a piece...

    Simon Phoenix : Look I don't need a history lesson! C'mon, HAL, where are the god damn guns?

    Moral Statute Machine : You are fined one credit for a violation of the Verbal Morality Statute.

    Simon Phoenix : What? Fuck you!

    Moral Statute Machine : Your repeated violation of the Verbal Morality Statute has caused me to notify the San Angeles Police Department. Please remain where you are for your reprimand.

    Simon Phoenix : Yeah, right.

    [police sirens approach] 

    Simon Phoenix : Fuckers are fast too.

    Moral Statute Machine : You are fined one credit for a violation of the Verbal Morality Statute.

  • [John Spartan landed on the police car stolen by Simon Phoenix] 

    Simon Phoenix : No free rides!

  • Simon Phoenix : [checking the charge status of his futuristic plasma rifle]  C'mon you space-age piece of shit!

  • Squad Leader : Simon Phoenix! Lie down with your hands behind your back.

    Simon Phoenix : What's this? Six of you. Such nice, tidy uniforms. Oh I'm so scared!

    [the Police Officers look at each other] 

    Simon Phoenix : What you guys don't have sarcasm anymore?

    [Police Officer talks to his automated assistant] 

    Squad Leader : Maniac has responded with a scornful remark.

    automated assistant : Approach, and repeat ultimatum in an even firmer tone of voice. Add the words, "or else".

  • [Simon goes to a computer terminal and is surprised to find his fingers flying across the keys with ease] 

    Simon Phoenix : Damn, I'm possessed! Wonder if I can play the accordion too...

  • Captain Healy : Dammit, Spartan. I'm sick and tired of this "Demolition Man" shit! You're not supposed to come down here, you're not supposed to apprehend Simon Phoenix single-handedly, and you're not supposed to blow anything up!

    John Spartan : It wasn't me this time, he dumped the gas and had the placed rigged to blow.

    Captain Healy : Yeah right, and you had nothing to do with it. I know you've been trying to nail this psycho for 2 years. But try to remember a little thing like official police procedure. Now where are the hostages?

    John Spartan : They're not here.

    Captain Healy : What do mean they're not here, are you sure?

    John Spartan : Because I did a thermo check. They're only 8 people, all a part of his gang.

    Simon Phoenix : [Being arrested]  Wrong again.

    John Spartan : Do you have something to say, scum bag?

    Captain Healy : [to officer apprehending Phoenix]  Get him out of here.

    [to Spartan] 

    Captain Healy : You and I are gonna have a nice long chat.

    Fire Fighter : [Coming in]  Captain. Captain.

    Captain Healy : What.

    Fire Fighter : We've checked the building. There's bodies everywhere, there has to be about 20 or 30, they're everywhere.

    [Spartan looks in disbelief] 

    Simon Phoenix : See Captain. I told him, he said he didn't care.

    [Spartan charges at Phoenix but is restrained by his fellow officers] 

    Simon Phoenix : Oh shit, I can't believe that you gave up 30 hostages for little old me. We're gonna have a nice time together. See ya' sweetie. Honey! Sugar!

    Captain Healy : Hope you called your lawyer, because you're gonna need him.

  • Simon Phoenix : [Opens a manhole]  Shit! I love that smell. Reminds me of biscuits 'n gravy.

  • Warden William Smithers - Aged : Do you have anything new to say on your behalf?

    Simon Phoenix : Yeah, I do. Teddy Bear!

  • Simon Phoenix : [to Cocteau]  That's who you remind me of: an evil Mr. Rogers!

  • [Huge Explosion, John Spartan steps from the wreckage] 

    Simon Phoenix : I'll be god damned! Like a New York cockroach!

  • [a frozen naked criminal swings by overhead] 

    Simon Phoenix : I hope my butt didn't look like that! Okay, who do we have left that's good? Wilkes, Patrick... Jeffrey Dahmer? I love that guy!

  • Simon Phoenix : So let me get this right, they defrosted you just so you could lasso my piddly ass? Damn, you been had! I been dreamin' about killin' you for forty years.

    John Spartan : Well, keep dreaming!

  • John Spartan : You're under arrest, Phoenix.

    Simon Phoenix : Arrest? Shit. And you're trespassing.

  • Simon Phoenix : [after his gang kills Dr. Cocteau]  Put another log on the fire!

    [the gang throws Cocteau into the fireplace] 

  • [Simon's museum piece "ray gun" beeps ready] 

    Simon Phoenix : It's about time! The past is over, John! Time for something new and improved!

    John Spartan : Aw, hell...

    [he leaps out of the way as Simon fires an energy blast from the rifle, blowing a hydrant apart] 

    Simon Phoenix : Holy shit! I love this gun!

  • Simon Phoenix : See, I told the city, I said "Look, nobody comes down here." Postmen figured it out. Policemen figured it out. But the goddamned bus drivers just wouldn't listen.

  • Simon Phoenix : You're dead, Spartan!

    John Spartan : You forgot to say Simon Says.

  • Dr. Cocteau : [to Simon Phoenix]  I hadn't counted on this, but I must say, you worked out beautifully. People are terrified of you.

    Simon Phoenix : What's new? People have always been terrified of me.

    Dr. Cocteau : Yes, but this time, the're really intimidated. Now I'll have carte blanche to create the perfect society. My society. San Angeles will be a beacon of order

    [Simon Phoenix is trying to shoot on Dr. Cocteau, but he is unable to pull the trigger] 

    Dr. Cocteau : with the purity of an ant colony. And the beauty of a flawless pearl.

    Simon Phoenix : Look, you can't take away people's right to be assholes.

    Dr. Cocteau : Hmm?

    Simon Phoenix : That's what you remind me of an evil Mr. Rodgers.

    [Simon Phoenix drops the gun to his team-mate] 

    Simon Phoenix : Will you please kill him? He's pissing me off.

    [the team-mate shoots Dr. Cocteau to death with multiple shots] 

  • Simon Phoenix : I must've done something right in a previous life. Can't imagine what that could've been.
