Midsommar (I) (2019)
Pelle: He's my good friend and I like him, but... Dani, do you feel held by him? Does he feel like home to you?
Ulf: [shouting in Swedish] You're pissing on my people!
Ulf: Your little fucking American friend! He's pissed on the Rotvälta!
Sven: [laughs] No. No, no. Uh Ruben was - a product of inbreeding. All of our oracles are deliberate products of inbreeding.
Siv: [in Swedish] This high my fire. No higher. No hotter!
Dani: Are these the May Queens?
Pelle: [turning away from Christian] Yeah! Right! Uh eh... You'll actually be here for that.
Josh: And - Who are your May Queens?
Pelle: Eh, every Midsummer we have this dance competition and the winner gets crowned, in this.
Dani: [laughing] Oh! Wow. Beautiful.
Mark: Somebody should tell those girls they're *walkin'* stupid.
Christian: [in hushed tones] How long do they *typically* stand?
Pelle: Uh we're gonna stand until it's - right to sit.
[snaps fingers twice]
Ulla: Christian... Hi. Hello! There you are! Listen: You can't speak. You can't move.
Ulla: All right?
Sven: Where is your friend? Yosh?
Christian: I know, ah... We have no idea.
Sven: He, and your other friend - They both disappears the same day. You see how it looks?
Pelle: Hey, guys. So these are younger people from my village. They're also returning from the trips outside. Come on over.
Pelle: Hey! These are my friends from America.
Siv: On this, the day of our deity of reciprocity, we gather to give special thanks to our treasured Sun. As an offering for our Father, we will today surrender nine *human* lives. As Hårga takes, so Hårga also gives. Thus, for every newblood sacrificed, we will dedicate one of our own. That is: four newbloods, four from Hårga, and one to be chosen by the Queen. Nine in all, to die, and be reborn, in the great Cycle.
Stev: The four newbloods, have already been supplied. As for our end, we have two already dedicated... And two who have volunteered. Ingemar and Ulf.
[they step forward]
Stev: You have brought outside offerings, thus volunteering your own bodies. You will today be joined in harmony with Everything. And to Pelle, who has brought new blood, and our new May Queen, you will today be honored for your unclouded intuition. And so, for our ninth offering. It is traditional that our fair Queen shall choose, between a preselected newblood, and a specially ordained Hårgan.
Josh: OK, do you, do you think I don't know - what you're doing? It's actually kind of outrageously unsubtle, the fact that you're being this - bald about it, I'm I'm honestly *kind* of impressed?
Christian: What the fuck, man. What does that mean?
Sven: He draws, and we, the Elders, interpret. You see Yosh, Ruben is unclouded by normal cognition. It makes him open, for the source.
Stev: Well. We, um - have something regretful to announce. This morning, the nineteenth book of Rubi Radr was found missin', from the temple. We don't want to - point fingers, and yet we kindly ask that whoever took it return it, to its original place. You can leave it in the temple, which will be left unguarded, unwatched. Nobody need to know, it was you.
Sven: Let's hope - it gets - returned.
Christian: I hope so too.
Pelle: I feel responsible.
Sven: Well, you and - Odd, you can go lookin' for them!
Sven: Maybe you can redeem this!
Stev: You - are going with the women for the day's activity...
Dani: Oh! Hi.
Stev: [to Christian] And, uh Siv - wants to see you in her house.
Dani: Has anyone seen Connie?
Christian: I think Mark saw her earlier.
Mark: I'm sure I saw her trying out for the *sprinting* Olympics earlier.
Dani: What, where?
Jarl: Sorry, but I can say what happened. Her boyfriend called the landline? from the train station and calmed Connie down. She begged our pardon and I drove her to meet him.
Christian: OK. That's really...
Dani: Why would Simon leave without her?
Christian: I'm sure it was just a miscommunication.
Siv: Now - it's traditional for the May Queen to bless our crops and livestock. And after the luck - you just inherited from that salt herring, we should all be doubly encouraged!
Dani: Can Christian come with me?
Siv: Nej. The Queen must ride alone.
