Men in Black (1997) Poster


Vincent D'Onofrio: Edgar



  • Bug : Place... projectile weapon... on the ground.

    Edgar : You can have my gun when you pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    Bug : Your proposal is acceptable.

    Bug : [Grabs Edgar, tears off his skin] 

  • Edgar : I go out, I work my butt off to make a living, all I want is to come home to a nice clean house with a nice fat steak on the table, but instead I get this. It looks like poison. Don't you take that away, I'm eating that, damn it! It IS poison, isn't it? I swear to God I would not be surprised if it was, the way you skulk around here like a dog that's been hit too much or ain't been hit enough, I can't make up my mind. You're useless, Beatrice. The only thing that pulls its weight around here is my goddamn truck!

    [Just then, a flying saucer smashes his truck, and Edgar comes out of the house to look at the damage] 

    Edgar : Figures.

  • [the Edgar-Bug has just captured the deputy medical examiner Laurel Weaver and is holding her at ray-gunpoint] 

    Kay : Let her go, shit eater.

    Bug : Oh, listen, monkey boy. Compared to you humans, I'm on the top of the evolutionary ladder, so can it, all right?

    Kay : You're breaking my heart. Show me your face and I'll cure all your ills.

    Bug : You ever pull the wings off a fly? You care to see the fly get even?

  • [Dr. Weaver is trying to stall Edgar so she can escape] 

    Dr. Weaver : You don't want to eat me. I'm a very important person on my planet. Like a queen, a goddess even. There are those who worship me. I'm not saying this to impress you, I'm just warning you it could start a war.

    Edgar : War? Good. That means more food for my family. All 78 million of them. That's a lot of mouths to feed, Highness.

    Dr. Weaver : You're a wonderful dad, but I'm staying HERE!


  • Beatrice : Edgar, what on earth was that?

    Edgar : [Bug in disguise]  Sugar...

    Beatrice : I've never seen sugar do that.

    Edgar : Give me... sugar... in water.

  • Edgar/Bug : Y'know, I've noticed an infestation here. Everywhere I look, in fact. Nothing but undeveloped, unevolved, barely conscious pond scum, totally convinced of their own superiority as they scurry about their short, pointless lives.

    Zap-Em Man : Well, yeah. Uh... don't you want to get rid of 'em?

    Edgar/Bug : Ah... in the worst way.

  • Edgar : You idiots! You don't get it - I've won! It's over! You're milksuckers! You don't matter! In fact, in just a few seconds you won't even BE matter!

    Kay : You're under arrest for violating sections of the Tycho Treaty.

    Jay : So hand over whatever galaxy you are carrying and step away from your busted-ass vehicle and put your hands on your head.

    Edgar : I'll put my hands on my head. Like this?

    [tears off his skin to reveal himself as the alien bug, and the agents proceed to fight him] 

  • [the Bug takes Dr. Weaver with him into the flying saucer] 

    Edgar : You're coming with me.

    Dr. Weaver : What?

    Edgar : It's a long trip. I'll need a snack.

  • Edgar : Where do you keep your dead?

    Manny the News Vendor : [thinks]  I don't have any dead.

    Edgar : Where?

    Manny the News Vendor : I don't know, the city morgue!

  • Edgar : Get your big butt back in the house!

  • Cook : Six is up!

    Cook : [looks at Edgar]  Where is Ivan?

    Edgar : Gave him a break.

  • Arquillian : To the continued reign of the Arquillian Empire.

    Gentle Rosenburg the Arquillian Jeweler : To the safety of the Galaxy.

    [both drinking a cup of soda, but Edgar appears with serving two Pirogi flavings when a bug was ontop of it] 

    Gentle Rosenburg the Arquillian Jeweler : [looks up at him]  You can kill us both, but you will not find the Galaxy.

    Edgar : Oh. You're right about one thing.

    [he pokes on Gentle Rosenburg's neck and pokes at the Arquillian's neck, then steals a thing, throws on a table a cat jumps in then hisses then scares him then walks away] 

    Dishwasher : You're not going anywhere, pal.

    [pushes him and fells off]
