Prometheus (2012) Poster

(I) (2012)

Michael Fassbender: David



  • David : Big things have small beginnings.

  • David : There is nothing in the desert and no man needs nothing.

  • Charlie Holloway : What we hoped to achieve was to meet our makers. To get answers. Why they even made us in the first place.

    David : Why do you think your people made me?

    Charlie Holloway : We made you because we could.

    David : Can you imagine how disappointing it would be for you to hear the same thing from your creator?

    Charlie Holloway : I guess it's good you can't be disappointed.

  • Charlie Holloway : David, why are you wearing a suit, man?

    David : I beg your pardon?

    Charlie Holloway : You don't breathe, remember? So why wear a suit?

    David : I was designed like this because you are more comfortable interacting with your own kind. If I didn't wear a suit, it would defeat the purpose.

    Charlie Holloway : They're making you guys pretty close, huh?

    David : Not too close, I hope.

  • David : How far would you go to get what you came all this way for - your answers? What would you be willing to do?

    Charlie Holloway : Anything and everything.

  • David : It must feel like your God abandoned you.

    Elizabeth Shaw : What?

    David : To lose Dr. Holloway after your father died under such similar circumstances. What was it that killed him? Ebola?

    Elizabeth Shaw : How do you...? How do you know that?

    David : I watched your dreams.

  • David : A superior species, no doubt. The hypersleep chambers will impress, I trust.

    Elizabeth Shaw : So they were traveling somewhere?

    David : I've managed to work out the broad strips, it's fairly evident they were in the process of leaving, before things went to pot.

    Elizabeth Shaw : Leaving to go where?

    David : Earth.

    Elizabeth Shaw : Why?

    David : Sometimes to create, one must first destroy.

    Interviewer : David, what makes you sad?

    David : War, poverty, cruelty, unneccessary violence. I understand human emotions, although I do not feel them myself. This allows me to be more efficient and capable, and makes it easier for my human counterparts to interact with me.

  • Peter Weyland : There's nothing.

    David : I know. Have a good journey, Mr. Weyland.

  • [while putting his space suit on, Shaw walks in front of him. She has just had the squid removed] 

    David : I didn't think you had it in you.

    [she looks at him suddenly] 

    David : Sorry, bad choice of words.

  • [from trailer] 

    David : Hello. I'm David.

    Interviewer : What can you do, David?

    David : I can do almost anything that could possibly be asked of me. I can assist your employees. I can make your organization more efficient. I can carry out directives that my future counterparts might find distressing or unethical. I can blend in with your workforce effortlessly.

  • Elizabeth Shaw : What happens when Weyland is not around to program you anymore?

    David : I suppose I'll be free.

    Elizabeth Shaw : You want that?

    David : "Want"? Not a concept I'm familiar with. That being said, doesn't everyone want their parents dead?

    Elizabeth Shaw : I didn't.

  • Elizabeth Shaw : What are you doing David?

    David : I'm attempting to open the door.

    Elizabeth Shaw : Wait, we don't know what's on the other side.

    David : [Door opens]  Oops. Sorry.

  • Meredith Vickers : [asking how long the Prometheus crew has been in hyper sleep]  How long?

    David : 2 years, 4 months, 18 days, 36 hours, 15 minutes.

    Meredith Vickers : Any casualties?

    David : Casualties, ma'am?

    Meredith Vickers : Has anyone died?

    David : No, ma'am. Everyone is fine.

    Meredith Vickers : Well, then wake them up.

  • [from trailer] 

    Interviewer : Is there anything you would like to say, David?

    David : I would like to express gratitude to those who created me. Happy Birthday, David, from Weyland Industries.

  • [from trailer] 

    Interviewer : Eighth-generation Weyland TIPE: Technological, Intellectual, Physical...

    David : Emotional.

  • Peter Weyland : There's nothing to learn.

    David : I understand, Mr. Weyland. Have a safe journey.
