Venom: Eye, lungs, pancreas. So many snacks, so little time.
[a SWAT team points their guns at Eddie]
Eddie Brock: Guys, you do not want to do this, trust me.
SWAT soldiers: Mask! Copy!
Eddie Brock: Okay, okay, have it your way... Mask!
Venom: [emerges] Copy!
[Eddie/Venom beats up Dr. Drake's men]
Venom: Outstanding. Now let's bite off all their heads off and pile them up in the corner.
Eddie Brock: Why would we do that?
Venom: Pile of bodies, pile of heads.
Venom: You come in here again... In fact, you go anywhere in this city, preying on innocent people, and we will find you and we will eat both of your arms and then both of your legs. And then we will eat your face right off your head. Do you understand?
Shakedown Thug: [stammering] No. No. Please...
Venom: Yes. So, you will be this armless, legless, faceless thing, won't you, going down the street like a turd in the wind? Do you feel me?
Shakedown Thug: What the hell are you?
[glances at the thug's head]
Shakedown Thug: [Terrified] Please...
[screams as Venom eats him]
Mrs. Chen: [a shocked Mrs. Chen is gaping at him] Eddie? What was that?
Eddie Brock: Oh... I have a parasite. Yeah. Good night, Mrs. Chen.
Venom: [on Anne] She doesn't know that we are about to win her back!
Venom: The one with Drake is Riot.
Eddie Brock: Who's Riot?
Venom: Riot is what you call a team leader. He has an arsenal of weapons.
Eddie Brock: Drake's got his own Symbiote.
Venom: He is unstoppable.
Anne Weying: Oh, great.
Venom: We have to got to go!
Eddie Brock: Go where? Where we going?
Anne Weying: Well, I'm coming with you.
Venom: No! It's going to get ugly.
Eddie Brock: Well, she can fight ugly. Trust me.
Anne Weying: Yeah, I can fight ugly.
Venom: [emerges] Not today.
Anne Weying: Oh, that's bullshit!
[Eddie rapidly knocks on neighbor's door]
Noisy Neighbor Ziggy: Yeah?
Eddie Brock: Hey, can you turn your music down, please? 'Cause I'm having a really hard time.
Noisy Neighbor Ziggy: Whatever.
[Eddie, as a semi-mutated Venom, growls at him]
Noisy Neighbor Ziggy: Yeah, sure, man. Yeah. I'll just turn it right down. Sorry.
Eddie Brock: Thank you. Thank you.
[a mid-credits scene: Eddie arrives at a prison to interview the serial murderer Cletus Kasady. Kasady, handcuffed and held at a small pen, turns his head and smiles at Eddie]
Cletus Kasady: Hi, Eddie.
Eddie Brock: Hey.
Cletus Kasady: Do you mind if we forego the whole creepy serial killer thing?
Eddie Brock: Sure, it's good with me.
Cletus Kasady: I mean, I can turn it on if you want. I can talk about the Dadaist patterns of arterial spray.
Eddie Brock: I bet you can.
Cletus Kasady: Tough to see you in this light, Eddie. Come on over.
Eddie Brock: All right. I'm here.
Cletus Kasady: When I get out of here, and I will...
[Kasady takes deep breath]
Cletus Kasady: ...there's gonna be carnage.
[Kasady smiles nastily]
Venom: [to Eddie] You should apologize to her. You may not live to get another chance.
Dapper Dog Walker: Hey. Don't give up on her. Either of you.
Eddie Brock: We won't.
Venom: Who was that guy?
[notices the dog]
Venom: Wait, this thing looks delicious.
Eddie Brock: Are you gonna eat anybody else?
Venom: Most likely.
Eddie Brock: Oh, God.
Venom: That is why WE are here. Cooperate, and you just might survive. That is the deal.
Eddie Brock: You know, I used to be a reporter. I was... I was pretty successful, as well, you know? My job, it required you to... You know, to follow people that did not want to be followed and hide in plain sight. I mean... You have to know how to disappear. I was pretty good, but, you know, you...
[looks at Dora]
Eddie Brock: Whoever you are, you suck.
Dr. Dora Skirth: Okay. My name is Dora Skirth.
Eddie Brock: Hmm.
Dr. Dora Skirth: I need your help. I work at the Life Foundation.
Eddie Brock: You do?
Dr. Dora Skirth: Yes.
Eddie Brock: Wow. Good for you. We're done.
Venom: Listen carefully, Eddie. You did not find us. WE found you. Think of yourself as my ride.
Eddie Brock: Where are you going?
Venom: We need Carlton Drake's rocket. You remember him.
Eddie Brock: How do you even know about that?
Venom: I know everything, Eddie.
Eddie Brock: You do?
Venom: Everything about you.
Eddie Brock: How?
Venom: I am inside your head. You are a loser, Eddie.
Astronaut JJ Jameson, III: Life Foundation Control, this is LF1. The specimens are secured, and we're heading home.
Mission Control Operator: Roger, LF1. You are a go for reentry.
Carlton Drake: Giant leaps will always come at a cost.
Eddie Brock: Oh, Jesus! You can take this guy, right?
Venom: He has got shit you have never seen.
Eddie Brock: What does that mean? What are our chances?
Venom: Hmm. Pretty much zero.
Eddie Brock: Oh, fuck it. Well, let's go save the planet.
Mrs. Chen: How are you, Eddie?
Eddie Brock: Ain't nothing change but the weather. You know?
Mrs. Chen: No.
[She-Venom appears behind Treece]
Eddie Brock: I guess it pays to be a specialist, huh? You know, it doesn't matter if you kill me anyway, because there's something way bigger afoot in this world than you and me. Much bigger than me. And it's much, much bigger than you. Karma's a bitch.
Security Chief Roland Treece: I don't believe in karma.
[She-Venom grabs Treece and bites his head off]
She-Venom: Hi, Eddie.
Carlton Drake: Look around at the world. What do you see? A planet on the brink of collapse. Human beings are disposable. But man and symbiote combined, this is a new race, a new species... a higher lifeform.
Eddie Brock: I have absolutely no problem with you sticking around, but if you do, we're gonna have some ground rules, all right? You cannot just go around eating anybody that you want to.
Venom: I cannot?
Eddie Brock: No, you cannot. All right, we need to... We need to reiterate this. There are good people in this world, a lot of them. And there are bad people. You have to tell the difference. The deal is, you will only ever be allowed to touch, harm, hurt, possibly, very possibly, eat very, very bad people, but never, never, ever good people. All right?
Venom: Fine. But how does one tell the difference?
Eddie Brock: Well, it's super simple. I mean, you just have to... You can intuit it, you can sense it. Sometimes you can even feel it.
Venom: Whatever you say. But can we get something to eat now? Otherwise, your liver, it's starting to look really, really good and juicy.
Eddie Brock: I found something very bad. And I have been... taken.
Eddie Brock: Yeah. It's a term of endearment, that's all.
Eddie Brock: No.
Eddie Brock: All right, fine. I'm sorry. So, what do you want to do now?
Venom: The way I see it, we can do whatever we want.
Anne Weying: Oh, no. I just bit that guy's head off.
Eddie Brock: I know, I know. I've been there, too. It's not fun.
Venom: Hmm. It is peaceful up here.
Eddie Brock: I'm not very good with heights.
Venom: Your world is not so ugly after all. I'm almost sorry to see it end.
Carlton Drake: This is the last time I'm asking you. Where is my Symbiote?
Eddie Brock: I have no idea.
Riot: [emerges] WHERE IS HE?
Eddie Brock: Oh, my God!
Riot: WHERE'S VENOM?
Eddie Brock: That is the ugliest-looking thing I have ever seen.
Carlton Drake: [turns back into himself] You know, Brock, I have no use for you.
[leaves the lab]
Carlton Drake: Treece! Come and clean up your mess.
Eddie Brock: Whoa, he has one up his ass, too.
Anne Weying: Dan just needs to do another MRI.
Venom: No MRI.
Eddie Brock: No. No. No MRI.
Anne Weying: What? Why?
Venom: Sound at 4,000 to 6,000 hertz is lethal.
Eddie Brock: Sound frequency in the MRI is really harmful for him.
Anne Weying: What, so, sound is like his kryptonite?
Eddie Brock: Not all sounds.
Venom: And fire.
Eddie Brock: Fire. And fire.
Anne Weying: He's talking to you.
Eddie Brock: Always.
Eddie Brock: So, what culinary delights will tickle the pickle tonight?
Venom: Tater tots and chocolate.
Eddie Brock: Right. Okay, no problem.
Eddie Brock: Hey, you know what... You know what night it is tonight, right?
Anne Weying: Date night.
Eddie Brock: Mmm-hmm. So, I will pick you up around, uh, 6:00. And please do not forget your helmet.
Anne Weying: Oh, I'm glad that you like it, 'cause I plan on wearing it at our wedding.
Eddie Brock: That's hot.
Anne Weying: Are you gonna behave yourself tomorrow?
Eddie Brock: No. No, I'm gonna do my job. That's what I'm gonna do. I can't, you know, not do my job. The guy you work for is a complete...
Anne Weying: I don't work for Drake. I work for my firm, and my firm works for him. And I'm sure that they defend many people that you don't deem worthy, but we don't want a repeat.
Eddie Brock: A repeat?
Anne Weying: Of the Daily Globe incident.
Eddie Brock: Ow! Really? Incident?
Anne Weying: Mmm-hmm.
Eddie Brock: That's not an incident.
Anne Weying: Baby, you were run out of New York.
Eddie Brock: I was not. I did not.
Anne Weying: I don't want you run out of San Francisco.
Eddie Brock: No, I still have currency in New York. I was going places. I wasn't running. I was going places. In fact, I moved to San Francisco for you.
Anne Weying: Me?
Eddie Brock: You are my home.
Anne Weying: You're not so bad yourself, champ.
Mrs. Chen: How you doing, Eddie?
Eddie Brock: Ah, aches and pains, you know, aches and pains.
Mrs. Chen: You look like shit.
Eddie Brock: Excuse me?
Mrs. Chen: You look like shit.
Eddie Brock: And you look as beautiful as ever. Jesus.
Mrs. Chen: Mind is body, Eddie. Have you been meditating like I showed you?
Eddie Brock: No, I have not. And it does not work.
Mrs. Chen: It doesn't work, because you don't give it a chance.
Eddie Brock: No, it doesn't work, because I bought a DVD off your cousin, and it was in Mandarin.
Mrs. Chen: [speaks Mandarin]
Eddie Brock: Yeah, I don't understand that, either. See, that right there, I don't understand what you just said. That is the problem.
Dr. Dora Skirth: Drake is using his personal rockets to scout real estate.
Eddie Brock: You know, it's a really interesting story, but we need to just get to the part where he's killing people.
Dr. Dora Skirth: Drake sent a ship on a recon mission. On the way back, they found a recon.
Eddie Brock: A comet?
Dr. Dora Skirth: Onboard computers indicated the presence of life, of millions of organisms.
Eddie Brock: Wait, wait, wait, when you say "millions of organisms", what do you mean?
Dr. Dora Skirth: We brought back some specimens.
Eddie Brock: You're talking about aliens? Like, aliens?
Eddie Brock: E.T. phone home. Aliens, yeah.
Dr. Dora Skirth: Yes. But we don't call them that. Well come them Symbiotes.
Eddie Brock: Symbiotes?
Dr. Dora Skirth: And they cannot survive in our environment without help. Drake believes that the union between human and Symbiote is the key of our survival, but not here on Earth.
Eddie Brock: Drake is trying to put human beings and aliens together? So they can live in space?
Dr. Dora Skirth: We call them hosts.
Eddie Brock: That's nuts, isn't it? That's completely insane.
Dr. Dora Skirth: Yes. There's no protocol for this thing. He's just feeding them in. If the match isn't exact...
Eddie Brock: No! We do not eat policemen!
[Anne screams and runs off]
Eddie Brock: Annie! Annie, wait! Wait, please.
Anne Weying: Oh, what the hell was that?
Eddie Brock: That's not me. I've been infected.
Anne Weying: Eddie, what's happening?
Eddie Brock: He's inside me.
Anne Weying: "He"?
Eddie Brock: Yes. I know it sounds crazy, but...
Anne Weying: You're sick. Eddie, you're really sick.
Eddie Brock: No, I am scared! And I need help.
Anne Weying: Hospital. Right now.
