Avatar (2009) Poster


Sam Worthington: Jake Sully



  • Jake Sully : I see you.

    Neytiri : I see you.

  • Jake Sully : Look, I know you probably don't understand this...

    [Neytiri ignores him and speaks Na'vi] 

    Jake Sully : Thank you.

    [Neytiri speaks Na'vi] 

    Jake Sully : That was pretty impressive. I would have been screwed if you hadn't come along.

    [Neytiri stands up and leaves. Jake follows her] 

    Jake Sully : Hey, wait a second! Where are you goin'? Wait up! Just, hey, slow down! I just wanted to say thanks for killin' those things...

    [Neytiri hits him with her bow] 

    Jake Sully : Aah! Damn!

    Neytiri : Don't thank. You don't thank for this! This is sad. Very sad only.

    Jake Sully : Okay, okay. I'm sorry. Whatever I did, I'm sorry.

    Neytiri : All this is your fault. They did not need to die.

    Jake Sully : My fault? They attacked me! How am I the bad guy?

    Neytiri : Your fault! Your fault.

    Jake Sully : Easy. Easy...

    Neytiri : You are like a baby. Making noise, don't know what to do.

    Jake Sully : Easy. Shh. Fine. Fine. If you loved your little forest friends... why not let them kill my ass? What's the thinking?

    Neytiri : Why save you?

    Jake Sully : Yeah. Yeah, why save me?

    Neytiri : You have a strong heart. No fear. But stupid! Ignorant like a child!

    [Neytiri walks away and Jake follows after her] 

    Jake Sully : Well, if I'm like a child, then look, maybe you should teach me.

    Neytiri : Sky People cannot learn, you do not See.

    Jake Sully : Then teach me how to See.

    Neytiri : No one can teach you to See.

  • Neytiri : You are Omaticaya now. You may make your bow from the wood of Hometree. And you may choose a woman. We have many fine women. Ninat is the best singer.

    Jake Sully : I don't want Ninat.

    Neytiri : Peyral is a good hunter.

    Jake Sully : Yes, she is a good hunter. But I've already chosen. But this woman must also choose me.

    Neytiri : [smiles]  She already has.

    [They kiss] 

  • Jake Sully : Neytiri calls me skxawng. It means "moron."

  • Jake Sully : [to Tsu'tey]  With your permission, I will speak now. You would honor me by translating.

    [to the assembled Na'vi as Tsu'tey translates in Na'vi] 

    Jake Sully : The Sky People have sent us a message... that they can take whatever they want. That no one can stop them. Well, we will send them a message. You ride out as fast as the wind can carry you. You tell the other clans to come. Tell them Toruk Macto calls to them! You fly now, with me! My brothers! Sisters! And we will show the Sky People... that they cannot take whatever they want! And that this... this is our land!

  • Jake Sully : Everything is backwards now, like out there is the true world, and in here is the dream.

  • Jake Sully : [Narrating]  Outcast. Betrayer. Alien. I was in the place the eye does not see. I needed their help. And they needed mine. But to ever face them again, I was gonna have to take it to a whole new level.

  • Moat : It is hard to fill a cup that is already full.

    Jake Sully : My cup is empty. Trust me. Just ask Dr. Augustine. I'm no scientist.

    Moat : Then what are you?

    Jake Sully : I was a marine. A warrior... of the uh... Jarhead Clan.

  • Neytiri : Now you choose your ikran. This you must feel inside. If he also chooses you, move quick like I showed. You will have one chance, Jake.

    Jake Sully : How will I know if he chooses me?

    Neytiri : He will try to kill you.

    Jake Sully : [deadpan]  Outstanding.

  • Jake Sully : [as Jake pleads for Eywa's help in attacking the "Sky People"]  If Grace is there with you - look in her memories - she can show you the world we come from. There's no green there. They killed their Mother, and they're gonna do the same here. More Sky People are gonna come. They're gonna come like a rain that never ends. Unless we stop them. They chose me for something. I will stand and fight. You know I will. But I need a little help here.

    Neytiri : Our great mother does not take sides, Jake; she protects the balance of life.

    Jake Sully : It was worth a try.

  • Jake Sully : [Narrating]  The way I had it figured, Toruk's the baddest cat in the sky. Nothing attacks him. So why would he ever look up? That was just a theory.

  • Dr. Grace Augustine : So you just figured you'd come here, to the most hostile environment known to men, with no training of any kind, and see how it went? What was going through your head?

    Jake Sully : Maybe I was sick of doctors telling me what I couldn't do.

  • [last lines] 

    Jake Sully : Well, uh, I guess this is my last video log. Because whatever happens tonight. Either way I'm... I'm not gonna be comin' back to this place. Well, I guess I better go. I don't wanna be late for my own party. It's my birthday, after all. This is Jake Sully signin' off.

  • [Grace is showing pictures of the Na'vi to Jake so he remembers them] 

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Okay, let's run through them again.

    Jake Sully : [Sees a picture]  Mo'at. Dragon lady.

    [Sees next picture] 

    Jake Sully : Eytukan.

    Dr. Grace Augustine : [Says the name correctly]  Ey-tu-"kahn". He's the clan leader. But she's the spiritual leader. Like a shaman.

    Jake Sully : Got it.

    [Sees next picture] 

    Jake Sully : Tah-soo-tey.

    Dr. Grace Augustine : [Says the name correctly]  Tsu'tey.

    Jake Sully : Tsu'tey.

    Dr. Grace Augustine : He'll be the next clan leader.

    Jake Sully : [Sees next picture]  Neytiri.

    Dr. Grace Augustine : She'll be the next "Tsahik". They become a mated pair.

    Jake Sully : So who's this Eywa?

    Norm Spellman : Who's Eywa? Only their deity! Their goddess, maker of all living things. Everything they know! You'd know this if you've had any training whatsoever.

    Jake Sully : [Shows him Neytiri's picture]  Who's got a date with the chief's daughter?

    Norm Spellman : Oh, come on!

    Dr. Grace Augustine : [to Jake and Norm]  Knock it off you two. Village life starts early.

    [to Jake] 

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Don't do anything unusually stupid.

    [Jake grins as Grace rolls her eyes at him before closing the pod] 

  • Jake Sully : This is how it's done. When people are sittin' on shit that you want, you make 'em your enemy. Then you're justified in taking it.

  • Jake Sully : [to his ikran on their first flight]  Shut up and fly straight!

  • Neytiri : It is Toruk, Last Shadow.

    Jake Sully : Yeah, right. It's the last one you'll ever see.

  • Dr. Grace Augustine : Just relax and let your mind go blank. That shouldn't be too hard for you.

    Jake Sully : Kiss the darkest part of my lily white...

    [gets cut off] 

  • [Grace's last lines] 

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Jake...

    Jake Sully : [takes her hand, speaks hopefully]  Grace...?

    Dr. Grace Augustine : I'm with Her now, Jake. She is real...


  • Jake Sully : [narrating]  There's no such thing as an ex-marine. You may be out, but you never lose the attitude.

  • Neytiri : I'm with you now, Jake. We are mated for life.

    Jake Sully : [to himself]  What the hell are you doin', Jake?

  • Jake Sully : [in unfinished scene, DVD bonus material; about the Na'vi]  They didn't even have a word for 'lie'.

  • [They find a Hammerhead Titanothere] 

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Don't shoot! Don't shoot. You'll piss him off.

    Jake Sully : It's already pissed off.

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Jake, that armor's too thick. Trust me. It's a territorial threat display. Do not run or he'll charge.

    Jake Sully : What do I do? Dance with it?

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Just hold your ground.

    [the Hammerhead Titanothere charges and Jake run towards him and yells to scare him. He goes away once seeing the Thanator] 

    Jake Sully : Ha, ha! Yeah, come on! What you got! Oh yeah, who's bad? That's right. Yeah, that's what I'm talkin' about, bitch. That's right, get your punk ass back to mommy. Yeah? Yeah, you got nothin'. You keep runnin'. Why don't you bring some of your friends, huh?

    [Turns around and sees an angry Thanator standing in front of him] 

    Jake Sully : [to Grace]  What about this one? Run? Don't run? What?

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Run! Definitely run!

  • Neytiri : My grandfather's grandfather was Toruk Macto, Rider of Last Shadow.

    Jake Sully : He rode this?

    Neytiri : Toruk chose him, it has only happened five times since the time of first songs.

  • Jake Sully : I see you, Brother... thank you.

    [kills prey] 

    Jake Sully : Your spirit will now be with Eywa, but your body will remain for The People.

  • Jake Sully : [Narrating]  Sometimes your whole life boils down to one insane move.

  • Moat : Why did you come to us?

    Jake Sully : I came to learn.

    Moat : We have tried to teach other sky people, it is hard to fill a cup which is already full.

    Jake Sully : My cup is empty, trust me. Just ask doctor Augustine, I'm no scientist.

    Moat : What are you?

    Jake Sully : I was a marine, a, er, a warrior of the eh, Jarhead clan.

  • Jake Sully : She said all energy is only borrowed, and one day you have to give it back.

  • Jake Sully : [while flying with his ikran]  I may not be much of a horse guy, but I was born to do this.

  • Neytiri : To become "taronyu" hunter, you must choose your own Ikran and he must choose you.

    Jake Sully : When?

    Neytiri : When you are ready.

    [makes a whooping sound as she flies off on her Ikran] 

  • Dr. Grace Augustine : Is the avatar safe?

    Jake Sully : Yeah, Doc, it's safe, and you are not gonna believe where I am!

  • Jake Sully : [speaking Na'vi]  Tsu'tey, son of Ateyo, I stand before you ready to serve the Omaticya people. You are Olo'eyctan, and you are a great warrior. I can't do this without you.

    Tsu'tey : Toruk Macto, I will fly with you.

  • [first lines] 

    Jake Sully : [Narrating]  When I was lying in the V.A. hospital with a big hole blown through the middle of my life, I started having these dreams of flying. I was free. But sooner or later, you always have to wake up.

  • Jake Sully : I became a Marine for the hardship. Told myself that I can pass any test a man can pass. All I ever wanted was a single thing worth fighting for.

  • Jake Sully : All I ever wanted was a single thing worth fighting for.

  • Jake Sully : I was a warrior who dreamed he could bring peace. Sooner or later, though, you always wake up.

  • Dr. Grace Augustine : Hey Marine!

    Jake Sully : [Turns and sees Grace's Avatar]  Damn. Grace?

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Well who'd you expect, numbnuts?

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Think fast.

    [Grace throws Jake some type of purple fruit] 

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Motor control is looking good.

    [Jake bites into fruit and chuckles excitedly] 

  • Jake Sully : You have to leave, or you're gonna die!

    Moat : Are you certain of this?

    Jake Sully : Look, they sent me here, to learn your ways, so one day I could bring this message, and that you would believe it.

    Neytiri : What are you saying, Jake? You knew this would happen?

    Jake Sully : Yes. Look, at first, it was just orders, and then, everything changed. Okay? I fell in love. I fell in love with the - with the forest, with the Omaticaya people... with you... with you...

    Neytiri : [interrupting him]  I trusted you...

    Jake Sully : [continuing what he was saying]  - with you.

    Neytiri : [getting upset]  I trusted you!

    Jake Sully : [trying to calm her]  Trust me, now. Please.

    Neytiri : You will never be one of The People!

    Neytiri : He tried to stop them!

    Jake Sully : Neytiri, please.

    [Neytiri says something in Na'vi and leaves] 

  • Jake Sully : You wanted to see me, Colonel?

    Col. Quaritch : This low gravity'll make you soft. And when you get soft, Pandora will eat you and shit you out dead with zero warning. I read your file, Corporal. Venezuela, that was some mean bush. Nothin' like that here, though. You got some heart, kid, showin' up here.

    Jake Sully : Figured it was just another hellhole.

  • Jake Sully : Yeah, why save me?

    Neytiri : You have a strong heart, no fear. But stupid, ignorant like a child.

  • Dr. Max Patel : Grace, this is Jake Sully.

    Jake Sully : Ma'am.

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Yeah, yeah, I know who you are and I don't need you. I need your brother. You know, the PhD who trained for 3 years for this mission.

    Jake Sully : He's dead. I know it's a big inconvenience for everyone.

    Dr. Grace Augustine : How much lab training have you had?

    Jake Sully : I dissected a frog once.

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Ya see, ya see? They're just pissing on us without even giving us the courtesy of calling it rain. I'm going to Selfridge.

    Dr. Max Patel : Grace. No, I don't think...

    Dr. Grace Augustine : No, man, this is such bullshit! Gonna kick his corporate butt. He has no business sticking his nose in *my* department.

  • Jake Sully : [Narrating]  In cryo, you don't dream at all. It doesn't *feel* like six years - more like a fifth of Tequila and an ass kicking. Tommy was a scientist, not me. He was the one who wanted to get shot light years out in space to find the answers.

    Jake Sully : Are we there yet?

    Cryo Vault Med Tech : Yeah, we're there sunshine... We're there.

    [Scene changes to morgue] 

    Suit #2 : It's about your brother...

    Jake Sully : [Narrating]  So a week before he was about to ship out... a guy with a gun ends his journey... for the paper in his wallet.

    Cryo Vault Med Tech : You've been in cryo for five years, nine months and twenty-two days. You will be hungry, you will be weak. If you feel nausea, please use the...

    Jake Sully : [Narrating]  Yeah, Tommy was the scientist. Me? I'm just another dumb grunt goin' some place he's gonna regret.

  • Trudy Chacon : We're goin' up against gunships with bows and arrows.

    Jake Sully : Well, I guess we better stop 'em.

  • Jake Sully : [to Grace when she interrupts his video log recording to give some extra explanation]  Excuse me, this is my video log here.

  • Jake Sully : [narrating]  Up ahead was Pandora. You grew up hearing about it, but I never figured I'd be goin' there.

  • Col. Quaritch : Son, I take care of my own. You get me what I need, I make sure that when you rotate home, you get your legs back, your real legs.

    Jake Sully : That sounds real good, sir.

  • Jake Sully : [Narrating]  Learning to ride an ikran - we call 'em banshees - is a test every young hunter has to pass. But to do that, you gotta go where the banshees are. Boo-rah.

  • Jake Sully : [making a video log]  Do I have to do this now? Like, I really need to get some rack.

    Dr. Grace Augustine : Yes, now, while it's still fresh.

    Jake Sully : Okay, uh... location: shack.

  • Jake Sully : Give it up, Quaritch! It's all over.

    Col. Quaritch : [from inside the Amp suit]  Nothin's over while I'm breathin'.

    Jake Sully : I kinda hoped you'd say that.

  • Jake Sully : The aliens went back to their dying home. Only a few were chosen to stay.

  • Jake Sully : [narrating]  One life ends, another begins.

  • Jake Sully : [collector's extended cut]  You want a fair deal? You're on the wrong planet. The strong prey on the weak, it's just the way things are. And nobody does a damned thing.

  • Jake Sully : Who's got a date with the chief's daughter?

  • Trudy Chacon : I'm Trudy. I fly all the science sorties. And this here, is my baby.

    [tapping on the her helicopter with her hand] 

    Trudy Chacon : Hold on a second.

    [throws clip board into helicopter] 

    Trudy Chacon : [to Wainfleet, who is installing the gun rack to hold the door gun]  Hey, Wainfleet. Get it done. We bounce at zero-nine.

    Corporal Lyle Wainfleet : Yeah, I'm on it, Capitan.

    Trudy Chacon : The hind strake's still losoe.

    Jake Sully : You guys are packin' some heavy gear.

    Trudy Chacon : [to the driver of a vehicle that almost hit Jake]  Watch it! Yeah, that's because we're not the only thing flyin' around out there. Or the biggest. I'm gonna need you on a door gun, I'm a man short.

    Jake Sully : I thought you'd never ask.

    Trudy Chacon : There's your man.

    [pointing to Quaritch] 

    Trudy Chacon : See you on the flight line.

    [Trudy and Jake fist bump each other before she walks away] 

  • [after finding out that Jake has destroyed the cameras on the one of the dozers, Quaritch kills the link for Grace and Jake] 

    Jake Sully : [Jake emerges from the link]  Are you out of your goddamn mind?

    Col. Quaritch : You crossed the line.

    [Quaritch punches Jake in the face, knocking him out] 

    Col. Quaritch : [to one of the soldiers]  Wheel this meat outta here.

    Col. Quaritch : [a short time later]  You let me down son! So, you find yourself some local tail, and you just completely forget what team you're playin' for?

  • Jake Sully : [Narrating]  I was a stone cold aerial hunter, death from above. Only problem is, you're not the only one.

  • Jake Sully : I need your help.

    Neytiri : You should not be here.

    Neytiri : No! Go back!

  • Jake Sully : [Narrating]  Sooner or later, though, you always have to wake up.

  • Jake Sully : [collector's extended cut]  I became a marine for the hardship, to be hammered on the anvil of life. I told myself I can pass any test a man can pass.

  • Jake Sully : [on video log]  They're not gonna give up their home. They're not gonna make a deal.


    Jake Sully : For-for what? A light beer and blue jeans? There's nothing that we have that they want. Everything they sent me out here to do is a waste of time. They're never gonna leave Hometree.

  • [after Jake enters his avatar body] 

    Dr. Max Patel : Jake! Listen to me! You're not used to your avatar body. This is dangerous!

    Jake Sully : [excited]  This is great!

  • Jake Sully : I'm just saying if you love your little forest friends, then why not just let them kill my ass?

    Neytiri : Why save you?

    Jake Sully : Yeah, why save me, what's the thinking?

    Neytiri : You have a strong heart, no fear. But stupid! Like baby, don't know what to do.

  • Col. Quaritch : You haven't got lost in the woods, have ya? Your last report was more than 2 weeks *ago*. I'm startin' to doubt your resolve! The way I see it, it's time to terminate the mission.

    Jake Sully : I can do this.

    Col. Quaritch : You already have. You gave me good, usable intel on this Tree of Souls place. Yeah, I got them by the balls with that when this turns into a shit fight - which it will. Now it's time to come in. By the way, you gon' get your legs back. Yeah. I got you corporate approval. Gonna have you on a shuttle tonight. I'm a man of my word.

    Jake Sully : I gotta finish this. There's one more thing. A ceremony. It's uh, it's the final stage of becoming a man. If I do it, I'm one of them. Now trust me. And I can negotiate the terms of their relocation.

    Col. Quaritch : [as he gets up to leave]  Well, then you betta get it done, Corporal.

  • Jake Sully : I just want to say thanks for killing those things.

    Neytiri : Don't thank. You don't thank for this. This is sad. Very sad only.

    Jake Sully : Okay, okay. I'm sorry. Whatever I did, I'm sorry!

    Neytiri : All this is your fault, they did not need to die.

  • Jake Sully : If it ain't raining, we ain't training.

  • Jake Sully : Are you out of your goddamn mind?

    Col. Quaritch : You crossed the line!

    [punches Jake in the face] 

  • Jake Sully : Trust me now.
