    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Jack : You've made your first true kill. No easy thing. It changes the color of your blood. It paints your conscience. You did that for me.
        David : I tell myself I had no choice.
        Jack : There's always a choice.
        David: You don't owe me anything.
        Jack: Words don't settle debt.

      • Gath Rebel: There were two brothers: Cain and Abel. God's first grandchildren, and the wicked one killed the innocent one because of jealousy. Then he became the father of mankind. So, beneath the veneer of civility we're all children of Cain.
        Jack: The war is over, in case you haven't heard.
        Gath Rebel: No war will ever end as long as there are those who make profit from it.
        Jack: Is that how you got your weapons? Someone who profits from both countries being at war?
        Gath Rebel: I use him as he uses me. If he wants me to destroy the government of Gath, I will. Then he'll turn against yours. And out of this chaos, something new and beautiful will be born.
        Jack: And how many have to die to give birth to your utopia?
        Gath Rebel: As many as it takes to become united. We are brothers all. Even you and him.
        Jack: He is not my brother.
        Gath Rebel: He may well be, one day.

      • Reverend Ephram Samuels: We must sacrifice tonight, so that tomorrow…so that there is a tomorrow. We ask you to leave your places of work, and go to your homes. We ask you close your doors to the world. Do not open them until the sun rises. Light a candle in your window, a sign to your neighbor that we stand together, even as we stand apart. If we act as one, the Angel of Death cannot single us out. She will pass over our doors and we will be spared. I have no fear, because tonight my faith is not in God, but in you.

      • David: I'm not your enemy.
        Jack: Enemies I understand. You? I don't know what you are.

      • King Silas: I'm proud of you. Both of you. You truly are the king's own.
        Jack: I never would have thought Abner. I'm sorry father; I know he was your friend.
        King Silas: The king has no friends. He has, if he's lucky, his family. Trust each other with your lives as I now entrust you with mine. Brotherhood.
