The Mummy (1999)
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?
Dr. Bey: [stutters in disbelief] What... How... Oh, look at this! Sons of the pharaohs! Give me frogs! Flies! Locusts! Anything but *you*! Compared to you, the other plagues were a joy!
Evelyn: I am so very sorry. It was an accident.
Dr. Bey: My girl, when Rameses destroyed Syria, that was an accident. You are a *catastrophe*!
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.
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: 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.
Dr. Bey: We are part of an ancient secret society. For over three thousand years, we have guarded the City of the Dead. We are sworn at manhood to do any and all in our power to stop the High Priest Imhotep from being reborn into this world.
Ardeth Bay: And now, because of you, we have failed.
Evelyn: And you think this justifies the killing of innocent people?
Dr. Bey: To stop this creature? Let me think...
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.
Evelyn: You were actually at Hamunaptra?
Rick: Yeah, I was there.
Evelyn: You swear?
Rick: Every damn day.
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.
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...
Jonathan: Can you believe...
Jonathan: Can we just...
Evelyn: You lied to me.
Jonathan: I lie to everybody. What makes you so special?
Evelyn: I am your sister.
Jonathan: Yes, well, that just makes you more gullible.
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.
[a scarab has just crawled under Jonathan's skin and he starts screaming]
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.
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.
[gets up and walks away in a huff]
Rick: [Calling after her] What? What'd I say?
Rick: Sorry. Didn't mean to scare you.
Evelyn: The only thing that scares me, Mr. O'Connell, are your manners.
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]
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.
[leaves and slams the door]
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.
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]
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.
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]
Beni: It is better to be the right hand of the devil than in his path.
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.
Mr. Daniels: I'm going downstairs, get me a drink. You want something?
Mr. Henderson: Yeah. Yeah, get me a glass of bourbon.
Mr. Daniels: Alright.
Mr. Henderson: A-And a shot of bourbon.
Mr. Daniels: Yeah, okay, okay.
Mr. Henderson: And a bourbon chaser!
Mr. Daniels: Yeah, yeah, I'll get your damn bourbon.
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.
Beni: [about Imhotep's sand storm] I loved the whole sand wall trick. It was beautiful. Bastard.
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...
Winston: [as the plane spins through the sandstorm] Here I come, laddies! Ha-ha-ha-ha!
Evelyn: You know, nasty little fellows such as yourself always get their comeuppance.
Beni: [laughing] Really? They do?
Evelyn: Oh, yes. Always.
Ardeth Bay: [narrating] Thebes, City of the Living, crown jewel of Pharaoh Seti the First. Home of Imhotep, Pharaoh's high priest, keeper of the dead. Birthplace of Anck Su Namun, Pharaoh's mistress. No other man was allowed to touch her. But for their love, they were willing to risk life itself.
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]
[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.
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?
Jonathan: [Jonathan hands Evy a strange box] My whole life, I've never found anything, Evy. *Please* tell me I've found something.
Jonathan: [Evelyn opens the strange box, inside lies an ancient map] Jonathan?
Evelyn: I think you found something.
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: [after the warden has died] What do you suppose killed him?
Jonathan: Did you ever see him eat?
Evelyn: Oh, for heaven's sake, girl, it wasn't that good of a kiss, anyway.
Dr. Allen Chamberlain: [after Evelyn has spoken the incantation that awakens Imhotep] *No*! You must not read from the book!
[Imhotep, not fully regenerated yet, walks toward Beni. Beni fearfully speaks incantations in three languages, at last speaking one in Hebrew as he is backed against a wall, waving a Star of David]
Beni: Al tastir panech mimeni...
[= Do not fail to protect me]
Imhotep: [speaking Ancient Egyptian] The language of the slaves...
Imhotep: [speaking Hebrew] Ulai uchal lehishtamesh bach. Vehaprasim...
[= I may have use for you. And the rewards... ]
Imhotep: [Imhotep holds out a handful of gold to Beni]
Imhotep: [speaking Hebrew] ... ihyu gdolim.
[= will be great]
Beni: [relieved] My prince.
Imhotep: [speaking Hebrew] Eifo havasot hakdoshot haacherot?
[= Where are the other sacred jars?]
Evelyn: Oh, my God. It's a... it's a sarcophagus. Buried at the base of Anubis. He must have been someone of great importance. Or he did something *very* naughty.
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.
Mr. Henderson: Do they know something we don't?
Dr. Allen Chamberlain: They are led by a woman. What does a woman know?
Evelyn: So, what exactly is this man in prison for?
Warden Gad Hassan: Well, this I did not know. But when I heard you were coming, I asked him that myself.
Warden Gad Hassan: [to workers in Arabic] Hurry up!
Evelyn: And what did he say?
Warden Gad Hassan: He said he was just looking for a good time.
Evelyn: Have you no respect for the dead?
Jonathan: Of course I do. But sometimes... I'd rather like to join them.
Evelyn: Well, I wish you would do it sooner rather than later before you ruin my career the way you've ruined yours.
Rick: [Seeing Imhotep regenerate] We are in serious trouble.
[Imhotep, fully regenerated, and Beni walk through the possessed crowd towards Rick, Evelyn, Jonathan, Dr. Bey, and Ardeth]
Dr. Bey: It's the creature. He's fully regenerated.
[Imhotep speaks in ancient Arabic]
Beni: [translating for Imhotep] Come with me, my princess. It is time to make you mine, forever.
Evelyn: For all eternity, idiot.
[Imhotep speaks in ancient Arabic]
Beni: [translating for Imhotep] Take my hand and I will spare your friends.
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?
Ardeth Bay: Know this: this creature is the bringer of death. He will never eat, he will never sleep, and he will never stop.
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!
Jonathan: Never did like camels. Filthy buggers. They smell, they bite, they spit.
[the warden spits]
Evelyn: Mister O'Connell, can you look me in the eye, and guarantee me that this isn't all some kind of a flimflam?
Jonathan: [from deleted scene]
[as they are riding on camels, Jonathan accuses the Warden of things]
Jonathan: ... and you snore.
Warden Gad Hassan: I do not snore.
Jonathan: All night you snored.
Warden Gad Hassan: Break wind, maybe, but snore? *Never*!
Jonathan: And then there was the drooling. Anyway, how would you know? You were asleep.
Evelyn: I will give you one hundred pounds to save this man's life.
Warden Gad Hassan: Madame, I would *pay* one hundred pounds just to see him hang.
Evelyn: Two! Two hundred pounds!
Warden Gad Hassan: [to hangman] Proceed.
Evelyn: Three hundred pounds!
[cut to scenes between Rick, the hangman, and the warden, then come back]
Evelyn: Five hundred pounds!
Warden Gad Hassan: [looks at her] And what else?
[puts his hand on her thigh]
Warden Gad Hassan: I'm a very lonely man.
Warden Gad Hassan: [Rick is hanging from the noose] Ha, ha! His neck did not break! Oh, I'm so sorry. Now, we must watch him strangle to death.
Evelyn: [after a pause] He knows the location to Hamunaptra.
Warden Gad Hassan: You lie.
Evelyn: I would never!
Warden Gad Hassan: Are you telling me this filthy, godless son of a pig knows where to find the City of the Dead?
Warden Gad Hassan: Truly?
Evelyn: Yes! And if you cut him down, we will give you... ten percent.
Warden Gad Hassan: Fifty percent.
Warden Gad Hassan: Forty!
Warden Gad Hassan: Twenty-five!
Evelyn: Ah! Deal!
Warden Gad Hassan: [giving in] Agh! Cut him down!
Beni: Mr. Burns, Prince Imhotep thanks you for your hospitality.
Mr. Burns: No.
Beni: And for your eyes, and for your tongue.
Mr. Burns: Wha...
Beni: But I'm afraid more is needed. The prince must finish the job... and consummate the curse, which you and your friends have brought down upon yourselves.
Rick: [after a mysterious wind blows up for the umpteenth time] That happens a lot around here.
Jonathan: [entering Sah-Netjer] Whew! What is that god-awful stench?
[smells the Warden climbing down right behind him]
Dr. Allen Chamberlain: [about the plague of locust terrorizing everyone] What have we done?
Beni: [after being thrown out of Imhotep's sand storm] I need a new job.
Winston: [stepping into a fountain] Some bloody idiot spilt his drink.
Rick: [to Evelyn] Well, forget it! We're out the door, we're down the hall, and we're gone.
Beni: [from deleted scene] It is three days down the Nile, then two days by camel, Barat'm.
Mr. Daniels: All the money we're payin' you, there better be something under that sand.
Mr. Henderson: Hamunaptra, Daniels. That's all you gotta keep telling yourself. Hamunaptra.
Mr. Burns: We're gonna find it, boys, and we're gonna make history.
Mr. Henderson: And get rich doin' it.
Dr. Allen Chamberlain: [to native workers loading equipment into the riverboat] Let's load it up! Let's load it up! Everything's in order, gentlemen.
Mr. Burns: Thank you, Doctor.
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.
Mr. Henderson: [after finding the sacred jars] Say, O'Connell, what do you think these babies'll fetch back home?
Mr. Burns: We hear you boys found yourselves a nice, gooey mummy. Well, congratulations.
Mr. Daniels: You know, if you dry that fellow out, you might be able to sell him for firewood.
Evelyn: Where are they taking him?
Warden Gad Hassan: To be hanged. Apparently, he had a *very* good time.
Warden Gad Hassan: [as Rick is about to lower himself into a pit] Hey, look for bugs. I *hate* bugs.
Mr. Burns: [revealing his injuries after meeting 'The Mummy'] My eyes... My eyes...
Rick: [inspecting Imhotep's sarcophagus] This looks like some sort of a lock.
Jonathan: Well, whoever's in here sure wasn't getting out.
Evelyn: [to Dr. Bey about the map to Hamunaptra] You see the cartouche there? It's the official royal seal of Seti the First, I'm sure of it.
Dr. Bey: Perhaps.
Jonathan: Two questions. Who the hell was Seti the First, *and* was he rich?
Evelyn: He was the second pharaoh of the 19th dynasty, said to be the wealthiest pharaoh of them all.
Jonathan: Good. That's good. I like this fellow. I like him very much.
