The Island (2005)
Lincoln Six-Echo: What's "God"?
McCord: Well, you know, when you want something really bad and you close your eyes and you wish for it? God's the guy that ignores you.
McCord: I know you're new to this whole human thing, but... backpacks for boys, purses for girls. Ya understand?
Jordan Two-Delta: We're not idiots.
McCord: Well, excuse me, Miss "I'm-so-smart-I-can't-wait-to-go-to-the-Island!"
McCord: [At Lincoln Six-Echo] All right, look. I know you're new to this whole human experience and all, but there's one universal truth and that is you NEVER give a woman your credit card.
Lincoln Six-Echo: Right. mmm.
Construction Worker: [helping Lincoln up after the fall from the building logo] Jesus must love you! That was the craziest mess I've ever seen!
[then helping Jordan]
Construction Worker: Come on girl! I KNOW Jesus loves you!
Albert Laurent: Did you know my father was part of the Burkinabé rebellion? When he was killed, my brothers and I were branded, so everyone would know we were less than human.
[he holds up his hand to show Merrick]
Albert Laurent: I've seen and done things I'm not proud of, but at some point you realize, war... Is a business. So, when did killing become a business for you?
Merrick: Oh, no. It's so much more than that. I have discovered the Holy Grail of science. I give life. The agnates, they're simply tools, instruments. They have no souls. The possibilities are endless here. In two years' time, I will be able to cure children's leukemia. How many people on Earth can say that, Mr. Laurent?
Albert Laurent: [smiles] I guess just you and God. That's the answer you're looking for, isn't it?
[Lincoln Six Echo and Jordan Two Delta are asking a bartender where to find McCord]
Aces & Spades Bartender: Well, it's your lucky day, Captain Kirk. He's in the can.
Lincoln Six-Echo: He's in a can?
Aces & Spades Bartender: Takin' a dump.
Lincoln Six-Echo: A dump? Taking it where?
Aces & Spades Bartender: Tell you what, Bubba, you're fixing to get on my nerves. First door on the right.
Lincoln Six-Echo: Thank you.
[Lincoln Six Echo turns to Jordan Two Delta]
Lincoln Six-Echo: I have to go. He's taking a dump in a can!
Lincoln Six-Echo: [as Jordan starts kissing him passionately] Oh, that tongue thing is amazing.
Jordan Two-Delta: I know. Open your mouth again.
Lincoln Six-Echo: How come we never did this before?
Jordan Two-Delta: [kissing him] Shut up.
Merrick: What's troubling, you, Lincoln?
Lincoln Six-Echo: It - it's just... all right, Tuesday night is tofu night, and I'm asking myself "Who here decided that everyone likes tofu in the first place, and what is tofu anyway?" And why can't I have bacon? I line up every morning, and I'm not allowed any bacon for my breakfast. And - and tell me - let's talk about all the white. Why is everyone wearing white all the time? It's impossible to keep clean, I'm walking around, I get - I always get the gray stripe, I never get any color, and I hand it in to be cleaned, and - and someone cleans it and fold it neatly back in my drawer, but who? Who is that person? I don't know. I just - I wanna know answers and I - and I wish that there was more.
Lincoln Six-Echo: Yeah, more than just waiting to go to The Island.
Lincoln Six-Echo: [talking to McCord and sees a poster] Are these your friends?
McCord: eh... sometimes
Lincoln Six-Echo: Where are their clothes?
McCord: um... well
Client Services Operator: Merrick Biotech. How may I help you?
Tom Lincoln: Hi, this is a client, Tom Lincoln.
Client Services Operator: Hi, Mr. Lincoln.
Tom Lincoln: Yeah, I was wondering if you could get someone who can explain to me why my insurance policy is sitting downstairs on my fucking sofa!
Albert Laurent: You've been witness to certain trade secrets.
Lincoln Six-Echo: [knowingly] You mean that they manufacture human beings who walk, talk... and feel? That kind of secret?
Albert Laurent: [catching on] Have you talked with anyone else about this?
Lincoln Six-Echo: Who would believe it?
Albert Laurent: Can I count on that?
Lincoln Six-Echo: The only thing you can count on is that people will do anything to survive. I just want to live. I don't care how.
Aces & Spades Bartender: [to Jordan Two Delta] Something to drink? Jack?
Jordan Two-Delta: Yes, please.
Aces & Spades Bartender: Straight up?
[Jordan looks up at the ceiling]
McCord: Jeez, why do I always have to be the one to tell the kids there is no Santa Claus?
Lincoln Six-Echo: What's sex?
Tom Lincoln: Wait ? you're a virgin? You've been kicking around with *her* and you're a... a v-v-virgin? Well, I won't spoil the surprise. Boy, are you in for a treat.
God-Like Man: You're special. You have a very special purpose in life. You've been chosen. The Island awaits you.
McCord: Just cause people wanna eat the burger doesn't mean they wanna meet the cow.
Tom Lincoln: [pointing a gun to Lincoln Six-Echo] I'm sorry, I'm not ready to die.
Lincoln Six-Echo: Me either!
[floors the gas]
Merrick: I brought you into this world... and I can take you out of it.
[From the trailer]
McCord: You're not real. You're copies of people out here in the world.
Lincoln Six-Echo: Thanks for doing this.
Tom Lincoln: That's all right. I'd like to think you'd do the same thing if you were me.
Tom Lincoln: I design boats but I never thought I'd get rich doing it.
Tom Lincoln: [about Jordan] She is unbelievable. How is it you've been around three years, and you end up with the kind of woman I haven't been able to find my whole life?
[Jordan Two-Delta and Lincoln Six-Echo have just been told they are clones by McCord]
Jordan Two-Delta: Bu- I have a mother! I remember her!
McCord: Yeah, I know...
Jordan Two-Delta: I grew up on a farm! I had a little dog a - and I had a bike...
McCord: A bike, yeah. A pink, fluffy Flyer with little tassels on the handlebars? And you rode it up the street to your Grandmother's house, you'd ring the little bell, she came out and served you cookies on a hot plate?
Jordan Two-Delta: Yes.
McCord: No. Memory imprints. I've seen 'em - a buddy of mine is a programmer at the institute, he showed me. There's only, like, twelve stories, they change around little details, but they're all pretty much the same. The life you think you had before the 'contamination' - it never happened.
Tom Lincoln: Look, you're creeping me out enough without that.
Lincoln Six-Echo: [Imitating] Without that!
Tom Lincoln: No, really, cut it out. That's enough!
Lincoln Six-Echo: You're right, that is enough, sorry.
Tom Lincoln: You're like a freak show!
Lincoln Six-Echo: Yeah, it's weird.
Merrick: I love that Picasso. Do you like Picasso, Mr. Laurent?
Medical Courier: [to Secretary] Listen m'am, you're a real hoot, but we've got a bird on the pad, and we don't *fly* in bad wea-ther!
Lincoln Six-Echo: I think they're going to kill you.
Jordan Two-Delta: I'm going to The Island.
Lincoln Six-Echo: Jordan, there *is* no island!
Jordan Two-Delta: [she and Lincoln are looking at a rattlesnake] What is that?
Lincoln Six-Echo: I don't know. But it's alive.
[the rattlesnake strikes out, and Lincoln pulls back]
Lincoln Six-Echo: Come on. It's mean, whatever it is.
Merrick: [Lincoln Six-Echo has returned to the underground facility to shut down the hologram and reveal the real world to the clones when Merrick captures him] You could've taken over his life, but you chose to come back here instead, you are unique, Six-Echo.
Lincoln Six-Echo: My name... is *Lincoln*!
Lincoln Six-Echo: My name is Lincoln Six-Echo. I'm your insurance policy.
Jordan Two-Delta: [watching motorcycle scream down the asphalt] What was that?
Lincoln Six-Echo: I don't know.
Lincoln Six-Echo: But I want one.
Tom Lincoln: [from trailer] Don't shoot! He's my clone!
Jordan Two-Delta: Lincoln, I can tell when you're lying. Your mouth smiles but your eyes don't.
Lincoln Six-Echo: [after escaping and finding McCord in the 'can'] So this is Sector Five!
McCord: Do you remember the talk we had about... all the talk?
Merrick: [putting microsensors in Lincoln Six-Echo's eyes] Don't worry, it's painless.
Lincoln Six-Echo: [in pain] It hurts.
Merrick: [nonchalant] Not really.
Lincoln Six-Echo: Yeah, it does.
Merrick: No it doesn't.
Lincoln Six-Echo: Yeah, it really, really does.
Merrick: [after all microsensors went under Lincoln Six-Echo's eyes] The microsensors will move along your optic nerve. They will be uploading readings over the next 24 hours, after which you will pass them through your urine. Now *that* might hurt.
Starkweather Two Delta: No!I don't want to die, no! No! I want to go to the Island! You promised! I wanna live! I don't wanna die! No!
[just before a clone is being born]
McCord: Whoa seriously, guys, unless you wanna see me blow chunks, can you wait till I'm gone?
Lincoln Six-Echo: Why do we sound different?
Tom Lincoln: I'm from Scotland.
Lincoln Six-Echo: [imitating] I'm from Scotland.
McCord: The life you thought you had... it never happened.
Merrick: Why don't you tell me about your dream?
Lincoln Six-Echo: It's always the same dream - I'm on a boat, headed to The Island.
Merrick: What happens then?
Lincoln Six-Echo: I drown.
Laurent Team Member: It was supposed to be a simple bag job, huh?
Laurent Team Member: It's never simple.
Jordan Two-Delta: [after destroys all the tail vehicles] Good job.
