  • Quotes (6)

    • Sophia: What the hell were you thinking? Thomas: That's really the first thing you want to say to me after 66 years?

    • Violet: I like watching you. Simon: Yeah. Violet: Mm-hmm. You look happy. Like you're discovering water for the first time. Simon: Yeah, well, where I'm from thee wasn't any. Violet: You never talk about your past. Simon: Well... when I'm with you... it doesn't matter. For the first time in my life, I'm free of it.

    • Garret: What's our story? Simon: Possible homeland security threat in the vicinity. No reason to panic. Garret: That one doesn't work as well as it used to. Simon: It better be compelling then.

    • Thomas: What's the problem? Simon: I fell in love. Thomas: Now who in the hell told you to do that?

    • Madeline: I don't lie. I don't lie. My name is Madeline Jackson. I'm a journalist. I used to be, till I saw the light. That trying to speak the truth is a waste of time because nobody wants the truth. People don't want the truth. God forbid it would all go down in flames. It's the lies that keep the construct going. Don't you see? Spread by the vested interests in the government, and the private sector, and the churches, and the stock exchanges, all fabricating and spinning and telling stories that keep 300 million consumers happy and stupid and spending. Why are you looking at me like I'm crazy? Just stop. I'm not the deluded ones. You are.
