  • Quotes

    • Jeremiah: It's nothing personal. It's just...
      David: You don't trust me.
      Jeremiah: I don't trust you.
      David: How is that not personal?
      Jeremiah: Every time someone drags God into the conversation, it's because they want something. It's a con, it's a hustle, or worse. So excuse me if I look at all you've got going on here, and I wonder what it is that you're really up to.
      David: You know, a few centuries ago, people went on pilgrimages all the time to testify to their belief, to encourage hope, to receive absolution. They expected miracles, and they got them.
      Jeremiah: I believe in miracles a lot less than I believe in whatever it is that you're selling.
      David: Why? It's a new world. The rules have changed. Technologically, we've been plunged back into the middle ages. Right? Maybe, that's the only place where miracles are possible. Maybe, God stopped appearing because He got tired of all the noise. Maybe he only appears when the world is quiet enough to pay attention. Either way, I know we will find our miracle at the end of our journey. Tell me something. Do you believe that there's hope for a better world, Jeremiah?
      Jeremiah: Yeah. Yeah, I do.
      David: Well then, like it or not, you and me and God, we're all on the same side.

    • Constance: The Great Death was not the off switch. It was the reset button. This is not about endings. This is about beginnings.

    • Kurdy: (looks around the pilgrims' camp) It's kind of nice.
      Jeremiah: Yeah, it's nice. This kind of nice makes me worry. It usually means somebody wants something from you. Trust me, I've been hustled before by guys like this.
      Kurdy: You know, Jeremiah, my mom used to say there are two kinds of people, those who kiss and those who offer the cheek.
      Jeremiah: I don't get it.
      Kurdy: Look...
      Jeremiah: I mean, you know, nothing against your mom. It's just I, uh, I don't get that.
      Kurdy: Oh, forget it. She also said there are two types of kids. See, you give a kid a big, old box full of crap, and some kids are gonna see only the crap because that's what they're used to seeing, so they walk away. But the other type of kid sees that crap, dives in and starts digging like crazy 'cause he figures if theres that much crap, there's got be a pony in there somewhere.
      Jeremiah: So your mom said crap.

    • Kurdy: I wear hope around my neck, like a noose.
      It's loose enough for me to breathe what I need to get me through the day.
      And with each swagger and sway comes a new belief that there's a new relief just around the way.
      So I keep going, half-way knowing it's just a trick my mind likes to play so I don't quit.
      Or is it?
      Maybe I'll never know, maybe I'll never go past the dreaming that there's more, the scheming that what I'm searching for is seemingly reminiscent to the folklore that there's a garden paradise where I can settle and never have to leave.
      Where I can, breathe, deep breaths, and exhale with abandon.
      Maybe that paradise is wherever I'm standing, tall, believing in myself, that I can conquer all the sadness, and all the madness and have a ball wherever I go.
      Could that be the paradise I'm looking for?
      Maybe, Maybe I'll never know.
