Famous Equilibrium movie quotes and dialogs:
The original script was written by Kurt Wimmer, who also directed the movie.
Father: In the first years of the 21st century...a third World War broke out. Those of us who survived knew mankind could never survive...a fourth; that our own volatile natures could simply no longer be risked. So we have created a new arm of the law: The Grammaton Cleric, whose sole task it is to seek out and eradicate the true source of man's inhumanity to man - his ability to feel.
John Preston: Every time we come from the Nethers to the city, it reminds why we do what we do.
Errol Partridge: It does?
John Preston: [noticing Partridge's inflection] I beg your pardon?
Errol Partridge: It does.
John Preston: Then I'm sorry.
Errol Partridge: No, you're not. You don't even know the meaning. It's just a... vestigial word for a feeling you've never felt.
John Preston: There's no war. No murder.
Errol Partridge: What is it you think we do?
Brandt: Cleric, I can only hope one day to be as uncompromising as you.
Rebel: Don't do it. He'll shoot us in the back.
John Preston: If I was going to shoot you I'd shoot you in the face.
Dupont: The Gun Kata. Through analysis of thousands of recorded gunfights, the Cleric has determined that the geometric distribution of antagonists in any gun battle is a statistically predictable element. The gun kata treats the gun as a total weapon, each fluid position representing a maximum kill zone, inflicting maximum damage on the maximum number of opponents while keeping the defender clear of the statistically traditional trajectories of return fire. By the rote mastery of this art, your firing efficiency will rise by no less than 120%. The difference of a 63% increase to lethal proficiency makes the master of the gun katas an adversary not to be taken lightly.
Mary: Let me ask you something. Why are you alive?
John Preston: I'm alive... I live... to safeguard the continuity of this great society. To serve Libria.
Mary: It's circular. You exist to continue your existence. What's the point?
John Preston: What's the point of your existence?
Mary: To feel. 'Cause you've never done it, you can never know it. But it's as vital as breath. And without it, without love, without anger, without sorrow, breath is just a clock... ticking.
Brandt: What are you doing?
John Preston: I'm rearranging my desk.
Brandt: You didn't like the way it was before?
John Preston: I had no feelings about it. I'm merely attempting to optimize.
Dupont: Wait, Wait, look at me, look at me, I'm life, I live, I-I
breathe, I feel. Now that you know it, can you really take it? Is it
really worth the price?
John Preston: I pay it gladly.
Robbie Preston: John?
John Preston: Yes?
Robbie Preston: I saw Bobbie Taylor crying today. He didn't know, but I saw. Do you think I should report him?
John Preston: Unquestionably.
Mary: You can't do this. You cannot do this!
John Preston: Tetragrammaton. There's nothing we can't do.
Jurgen: We've been watching you, Preston.
John Preston: You're Jurgen.
Jurgen: You're feeling. [pauses] Do you know why you came?
Jurgen: But the first thing you learn about emotion is that it
has its price. A complete paradox. But without restraint, without
control, emotion is chaos.
John Preston: But how is that different-
Jurgen: The difference being is that when we want to feel, we can.
Brandt: Mind the uniform, cleric. I plan to be wearing it for a long time...
