The Road (2009) Poster

(I) (2009)

Charlize Theron: Woman



  • Wife : [she throws two pistol cartridges on the table]  That's all we have left. I should have done it a long time ago. I should've done it when we had more bullets. I don't know why I listened to you. They're gonna catch up with us and they're going to kill us. They're gonna rape me, and then they're gonna rape your son and they're gonna kill us and eat us.

    The Man : Whatever it takes...

    Wife : Stop it.

    The Man : I told you...

    Wife : Stop it!

    The Man : I will do anything. Anything.

    Wife : Like what? Hmmm? I don't even know why I ask you. I should just go ahead and empty every goddamn bullet into my brain and leave you with nothing. That's what I should do.

    The Man : Please don't talk like that.

    [both turn and look at the boy who's playing in the next room] 

    Wife : You're right. There's nothing left to talk about. My heart was ripped out of me the night he was born.

    The Man : We have to. We will survive this. We are not gonna quit. We're not gonna quit.

    Wife : I don't want to just survive. Don't you get it? I don't wanna. Why won't you let me take him with me?

    [Man reaches for the pistol, but she grabs it] 

    Wife : Don't touch it. I would take him with me if it weren't for you. You know that.

    The Man : Listen to yourself. You sound... crazy.

    Wife : [Wife pushes the pistol back across table to him]  Other families are doing it.

  • Wife : My heart was ripped out of me the night he was born.

  • [first lines] 

    Wife : What's happening? Why are you taking a bath?

    The Man : I'm not.

  • [from trailer] 

    The Man : Everything depends on reaching the coast. I told you I would do whatever it takes.

    Wife : Like what? Like what?

  • [from trailer] 

    Wife : They're gonna catch up with us. They're gonna catch up with us and they are going to kill us.
