Wonder Woman (2017)
Danny Huston: Ludendorff
Ludendorff : [waltzs with Diana] You know your ancient Greeks? They understood that war is a god. A god that requires human sacrifice. And in exchange, war gives man purpose. Meaning. A chance to rise above his petty mortal little self. And be courageous. Noble. Better.
Diana Prince : Only one of the many gods believed in that. And he was wrong.
Ludendorff : You know nothing of the gods.
Ludendorff : Doctor.
Dr. Maru : General.
Ludendorff : Progress?
Dr. Maru : Not enough. It is over General. Germany is giving up. Von Hindenburg has recommended the Kaiser sign the Armistice. We have run out of time.
Ludendorff : As soon as the Kaiser sees the newest weapon, he will not sign the Armistice.
Dr. Maru : But without my book...
Ludendorff : We will get your book! It is YOU I believe in, not it! I know that you can and will succeed. It is what you were put on this Earth to do.
Dr. Maru : Something did come to me last night. A different type of gas, for you. To restore your strength.
[Dr Maru opens the gas and Ludendorff breathes it in, giving him super-strength. Due to this, one of Dr Maru's screwed-up notes is pushed towards her. She reads it]
Dr. Maru : I've got it. I've got it! And if it's what i think, it's going to be... terrible.
Von Hindenberg : You were absent at the council meeting, General.
Ludendorff : I see you are negotiating the terms of the armistice without me.
Von Hindenberg : On the Kaiser's behalf.
Ludendorff : And on your insistence. We could easily win this war if only you had a little faith.
Von Hindenberg : We don't. There are shortages of food, medicine, ammunition. Every hour we delay costs thousands of German lives.
Ludendorff : One attack and the world could be ours. As we speak, my chemist...
Von Hindenberg : We stand against you and your... witch. Ludendorff, enough! 24 hours from now, this war will end. It is over.
Ludendorff : It's over for you.
[turns and walks out]
Ludendorff : It is over for all of you.
Ludendorff : [about to stab Wonder Woman with sword] As magnificent as you are, you are still no match for me!
