The Mummy (1999) Poster


Brendan Fraser: Rick O'Connell



  • Beni : [after a shipwreck]  O'Connell! Hey, O'Connell! It looks to me like I've got all the horses!

    Rick : Hey, Beni! Looks to me like you're on the wrong side of the *river*!

  • Rick : Well if it ain't my little buddy Beni. I think I'll kill you.

    Beni : Think of my children.

    Rick : You don't have any children

    Beni : Someday I might.

  • Hangman : [Rick is about to be hanged]  Any last requests, pig?

    Rick : Yeah. Loosen the knot and let me go.

    [the hangman says something to the warden in Arabic] 

    Warden Gad Hassan : [angrily]  Of course we don't let him go!

    [the hangman smacks Rick on the back of the head] 

  • Evelyn : Look, I... I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr. O'Connell, but I am proud of what I am.

    Rick : And what is that?

    Evelyn : I... am a librarian.

  • Evelyn : [preparing to open the sarcophagus]  Oh, I've dreamt about this since I was a little girl.

    Rick : You dream about dead guys?

  • Evelyn : [upon opening Imhotep's sarcophagus and he falls forward]  Oh, my God, I *hate* it when these things do that.

    Rick : Is he supposed to look like that?

    Evelyn : No, I've never seen a mummy look like this before. He-He's still... still...

    Rick , Jonathan : ...juicy.

  • Rick : Can you swim?

    Evelyn : Well, of course I can swim, if the occasion calls for it.

    Rick : [throwing her overboard]  Trust me. It calls for it.

  • Rick : And unlike your brother, Miss, you, I just don't get.

    Evelyn : [a little drunk]  Ah. I know. You're wondering... what is a place like me doing in a girl like this?

    Rick : Yeah, something like that.

  • Rick : I only gamble with my life, never my money.

  • Evelyn : Patience is a virtue.

    Rick : Not right now, it isn't.

  • Beni : As long as I serve him, I am immune.

    Rick : Immune from what?

    Beni : [in Hungarian]  Filthy animal.

    Rick : What did you say?

    Beni : I don't wanna tell you. You'll just hurt me some more.

  • Rick : Let me get this straight. They ripped out your guts and they stuffed them in jars?

    Evelyn : And then they take out your heart as well. Oh, and you know how they took out your brains?

    Jonathan : Evy, I don't think we need to know this.

    Evelyn : They take a sharp, red-hot poker, stick it up your nose, scramble things about a bit, and then rip it all out through your nostrils.

    Rick : Ooh, that's gotta hurt.

    Evelyn : It's called mummification. You'll be dead when they do this.

    Rick : For the record, if I don't make it out of here, don't put me down for mummification.

    Jonathan : Likewise.

  • Evelyn : You were actually at Hamunaptra?

    Rick : Yeah, I was there.

    Evelyn : You swear?

    Rick : Every damn day.

  • Winston : So, what's your little problem got to do with His Majesty's Royal Air Corps?

    Rick : Not a damn thing.

    Winston : Is it dangerous?

    Rick : Well, you probably won't live through it.

    Winston : By Jove, do you really think so?

    Jonathan : Well, everybody else we've bumped into has died. Why not you?

  • Jonathan : [they have just walked into a large room full of gold]  Can you see...

    Rick : Yeah.

    Jonathan : Can you believe...

    Rick : Yeah.

    Jonathan : Can we just...

    Rick : No.

  • Evelyn : Um... By the way... why did you kiss me?

    Rick : I was about to be hanged. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Evelyn : Ooh!

    [gets up and walks away in a huff] 

    Rick : [Calling after her]  What? What'd I say?

  • Rick : That's called stealing, you know.

    Evelyn : According to you and my brother it's called borrowing.

  • Rick : The Book of the Dead? Are you sure you want to be playing around with this thing?

    Evelyn : It's just a book. No harm ever came from... reading a book.

  • Rick : [trying to pack Evelyn's things into a suitcase but as he's packing, she's taking her things back out again]  I thought you said you didn't believe in all this fairy tales and hokum stuff!

    Evelyn : Well, having an encounter with a three thousand year old walking, talking corpse does tend to convert one.

    Rick : Forget it! We're out the door, we're down the hall, and we're gone.

    Evelyn : Oh no we are not!

    Rick : Oh yes we are!

    Evelyn : Oh no we are not! We woke him up and we are going stop him!

    Rick : We? What 'we'? We didn't read that book, I told you not to play around with that thing, didn't I tell you not to play around with that thing?

    Evelyn : Yes, that's right, me, me, me, me, I, I, I woke him up and I intend to stop him.

    Rick : Oh yeah? How? You heard the man, no mortal weapons can kill this guy

    Evelyn : Then we're just going to have to find some immortal ones!

    Rick : There goes that 'we' again, y'know I wonder if-

    [Evelyn slams the suitcase shut on Rick's fingers] 

    Rick : Ah!

    Evelyn : Listen we've got to do something! Once the creature's been reborn his curse is going to spread until the whole of the earth is destroyed!

    Rick : And is that my problem?

    Evelyn : Well it is everybody's problem!

    Rick : Evelyn, I appreciate you saving my life and all but when I signed on I agreed to take you out there and bring you back, end of job, end of story, contract terminated!

    Evelyn : Oh, that's all I am to you, a contract?

    Rick : Ok look, you can either tag along with me or stay here... and try to save the world! What's it gonna be?

    Evelyn : I'm staying.

    Rick : Fine!

    Evelyn : Fine!

    Rick : Fine.

    Evelyn : Fine.

    Rick : Fine.

    [leaves and slams the door] 

    Evelyn : Ooh...

  • [a scarab has just crawled under Jonathan's skin and he starts screaming] 

    Rick : What?

    Jonathan : It's my arm! My arm!

    Rick : [to Ardeth Bay]  Hold him!

    Jonathan : Do something! Do something!

    [Rick flicks a knife out] 

    Jonathan : Not that! Not that!

  • Evelyn : Have you got any bright ideas?

    Rick : I'm thinking, I'm thinking...

    Evelyn : You better think of something fast, because, if he turns me into a mummy, you're the first one I'm coming after.

  • Rick : Sorry. Didn't mean to scare you.

    Evelyn : The only thing that scares me, Mr. O'Connell, are your manners.

  • Rick : [a bunch of mummies start coming out of the ground]  Who the hell are these guys?

    Ardeth Bay : Priests. *Imhotep's* priests.

    Rick : All right then.

    [Starts shooting] 

  • Warden Gad Hassan : O'Connell! O'Connell! What are we going to do? What are we going to do?

    Rick : Wait here! I'll go get help!

    Warden Gad Hassan : Right!

    [Rick jumps overboard] 

  • Jonathan : Let's see what our friend the warden believed in.

    [starts looking through the warden's pouch. Suddenly he cuts himself on something] 

    Rick : What?

    Evelyn : My God, what is it?

    Jonathan : A broken bottle. Glenlivet, twelve years old! Well, he may have been a stinky fellow, but he had good taste.

  • [last lines] 

    Jonathan : Well, I guess we go home empty-handed... again.

    Rick : I wouldn't say that.

    [looks at Evelyn] 

    Jonathan : Oh, please.

    [Rick kisses Evelyn] 

    Jonathan : [to his camel]  How about you darling? Would you like a little kissy-wissy?

    [the camel breathes on him] 

    Jonathan : Whew!

  • Rick : You came back from the desert with a new friend, didn't you, Beni?

    Beni : What friend? You are my only friend.

  • Winston : What's the, uh, What's the challenge, then?

    Rick : Rescue the damsel in distress, kill the bad guy, and save the world.

  • Rick : Oh, yeah. This just keeps gettin' better and better.

  • Beni : You never believed in Hamunaptra, O'Connell. Why are you going back?

    Rick : You see that girl?

    [points to Evelyn] 

    Rick : She saved my neck.

    Beni : You always did have more balls than brains.

  • Jonathan : [Trying to buy some camels from a Bedouin]  I only want four! Four! I only want four, not a whole bloody herd! O'Connell! Can you believe the cheek?

    Rick : Will you just pay the man!

    Jonathan : Oh, for heaven's sake! Can't believe the price of these fleabags! Yes, happy. Very good.

    Rick : You probably could've got 'em for free. All we had to do was give him your sister.

    Jonathan : Yes. Awfully tempting, wasn't it?

    Rick : [as Evelyn walks up looking beautiful in her new black clothes with a veil hiding her face except the eyes]  Awfully...

  • Evelyn : We must stop him from regenerating. Who opened that chest?

    Mr. Henderson : Well, there was me, and Daniels here. Oh, and Burns, of course.

    Mr. Daniels : And that Egyptologist feller.

    Rick : What about my buddy, Beni?

    Mr. Daniels : Nah, he scrammed out of there 'fore we opened the damn thing.

    Mr. Henderson : Yeah. He was the smart one.

    Rick : Well, yeah, that sounds like Beni.

  • Evelyn : There's only one person I know that can possibly give us any answers.

    [sees Ardeth Bay with Dr. Bey] 

    Evelyn : You!

    [the men draw their guns and point them at Ardeth] 

    Dr. Bey : Miss Carnahan. Gentlemen.

    Evelyn : [about Ardeth]  What is *he* doing here?

    Dr. Bey : Do you really want to know, or would you prefer to just... shoot us?

    Rick : After what I just saw, I'm willing to go on a little faith here.

  • Rick : [to Imhotep]  Look what I got.

    [holds up the cat, Imhotep gasps, cat hisses, and Imhotep shrieks and flees in a dust storm] 

  • Rick : [to Mr. Henderson]  This door doesn't open. She doesn't come out, and no one goes in, right?

    Mr. Henderson : Right.

    Rick : [to Mr. Daniels]  Right?

    Mr. Daniels : Right.

    Evelyn : [locked in the bedroom]  O'Connell! Jonathan!

    Rick : Let's go, Jonathan.

    Jonathan : Oh, uh, I thought I could just stay at the fort and, uh, reconnoiter.

    Rick : Now!

    Jonathan : Yeah. Right. We're just gonna rescue the... Egyptologist.

  • Rick : So, what's the scam, Beni? You take them out into the middle of the desert and then you leave 'em to rot?

    Beni : Unfortunately, no. These Americans are smart. They pay me only half now, half when I get them back to Cairo. So this time I must go all the way.

    Rick : Them's the breaks, huh?

  • Evelyn : [about O'Connell to Jonathan]  Well, personally, I think he's filthy, rude, a complete scoundrel. I don't like him one bit.

    Rick : [walking up from behind]  Anyone I know?

  • [after seeing their commander turn and flee] 

    Beni : You just got promoted.

    Rick : [shouting to troops]  Prenez vos positions! Steady!

    Rick : [to Beni]  You're with me on this one, right?

    Beni : Oh, your strength gives me strength.

    [as the enemy continue to advance, Beni runs away] 

  • Evelyn : Keep him busy.

    Rick : [being thrown against a pillar by Imhotep]  No problem.

  • Rick : [to Evelyn]  You all right?

    Jonathan : [standing behind Rick]  Well, I'm not sure.

  • Rick : Hey! Get your ugly face off of her.

  • Rick : [Hamunaptra is about to be destroyed]  Time to go.

  • Rick : You're gonna get yours, Beni! You hear me? You're gonna get yours!

    Beni : Oh, like I've never heard *that* before!

  • Evelyn : The map! The map! I forgot the map!

    Rick : Relax. I'm the map. It's all up here.

    [points to his head] 

    Evelyn : Oh, that's comforting.

  • Rick : [being chased by a sandstorm]  Hey, Winston! Pedal faster.

  • Rick : [Seeing Imhotep regenerate]  We are in serious trouble.

  • Winston : You know, O'Connell, ever since the end of the Great War, there hasn't been a-a single challenge worthy of a man like me.

    Rick : Yeah? We all got our little problems today. Don't we, Winston?

  • Jonathan : [about a noise]  What was that?

    Rick : Sounds like... bugs.

    Evelyn : [to the warden]  He said bugs.

    Warden Gad Hassan : What do you mean, bugs? I hate bugs!

  • Rick : [after a mysterious wind blows up for the umpteenth time]  That happens a lot around here.

  • Rick : Time to close the door.

  • Rick : [to Evelyn]  Well, forget it! We're out the door, we're down the hall, and we're gone.

  • Mr. Henderson : [when Hamunaptra is revealed in the morning]  Will you look at that?

    Mr. Daniels : Can you believe it?

    Mr. Burns : Hamunaptra.

    Rick : Here we go again.

  • Rick : [inspecting Imhotep's sarcophagus]  This looks like some sort of a lock.

    Jonathan : Well, whoever's in here sure wasn't getting out.

  • Rick : [while brandishing a sword]  Yaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh

    Mummy Soldiers : [Mouths opening wide]  Rhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Rick : [Scared]  uh-uh

    [runs away]
