    • QUOTES (4)

      • Bethany: I saw her once, you know. The girl Adrian was...
        Julia: You saw her? What did she look like?
        Bethany: Naked.
        Julia: Ouch. So, you actually caught... Sorry. No wonder you have nightmares.
        Bethany: We never even really talked about it. Most women would've screamed or yelled. I should've at least thrown something. That's what women do in these situations. Right?
        Julia: I don't know. Last time I argued with my husband, he threw me down a flight of stairs and killed me.
        Bethany: (chuckles) Yeah, I should've done that to him.

      • Colin: (looking at the protesters) Look at them. We offer a chance to live longer and healthier, to save lives, and what do they do? They march in protest. Yesterday it was stem cells, today it's cloning. I gotta admit, part of me admires them in a weird sort of way.
        Laura: Admire them? They're idiots.
        Colin: No, they're believers. They're willing to sacrifice everything they have for what they believe in. I can't say I've ever believed in anything that much.
        Laura: Samantha's father, Jacob, he's the believer, not her. You know why? Because he can fucking walk!

      • Colin: I built 4Ever Innovations to improve upon creation, not replace it. To repair damaged organs, to bring back those we've lost. And perhaps in time, to discover a way to live beyond the limits of mortality.

      • Julia: If someone is only alive because another person died, how should they feel about that?
        Priest: How do you feel about it?
        Julia: I should feel guilty, I guess. But I don't. It's like I'm living someone else's life. I, I don't know who I am. I'm the carbon copy of a dead woman, inside and out.
        Priest: I'm afraid I don't understand.
        Julia: The reason I'm here, what I wanted to ask you is... Father, do you think clones have souls?
