2012 (I) (2009)
Thandie Newton: Laura Wilson
Laura Wilson : [On phone] Dad, where are you?
President Thomas Wilson : You wouldn't have gotten on that plane if I told you.
Laura Wilson : Daddy, what's happening? I thought you were coming on the plane.
President Thomas Wilson : Do you know what strength it gives me to know that my daughter is going to survive?
Laura Wilson : No toothbrush. Only books.
Adrian Helmsley : You know, when I was a kid, my dad was on the road a lot. He would give me a box full books, call me every night and quiz me. I'd get an ice cream cone for every book I read, so I was a fat kid.
Laura Wilson : I find that very hard to believe.
Adrian Helmsley : No, it's true. My high school career was 2,000 books and zero girlfriends.
Laura Wilson : I didn't even kiss a boy till I was in college. They were all to scared of my dad.
Laura Wilson : How were all these people chosen?
Carl Anheuser : The same way your art was: By experts from all over the world. We had geneticists determine the perfect gene pool we need to repopulate.
Adrian Helmsley : These people were chosen by geneticists?
Laura Wilson : Looks to me like their checkbooks got them onboard.
Carl Anheuser : That's right, Dr. Wilson. Without billions of dollars from the private sector, this entire operation would've been impossible.
Adrian Helmsley : We sold tickets. And what about all these workers? They all get passes?
Carl Anheuser : What, life isn't fair? Is that it? You want to donate your passes to a couple Chinese workers, you be my guest.
Sally - President's Secretary : Sorry, sir. She insisted.
Laura Wilson : The Director of Louvre has just been killed. It's all over the news.
[puts down newspaper and turns TV in room on with the news confirming what she had just explained]
President Thomas Wilson : [after the TV is back off] Adrian, I don't think you met my daughter, have you?
Adrian Helmsley : No, sir.
Laura Wilson : We just talked. He said the organization I work for is a sham. How can he say something like that?
Carl Anheuser : [to Adrian] Come.
[Carl and Adrian leave the room]
President Thomas Wilson : [after the door shuts after Adrian and leave] Did I ever tell you that you are just like your mother when you get upset?
Laura Wilson : Daddy, a man was just killed.
President Thomas Wilson : Please, sit down. Only twelve people know what I am about to tell you.
Laura Wilson : Daddy, what's going on?
President Thomas Wilson : An international endeavour is under way, and 46 nations are currently invested in this thing.
