You know what the scariest thing is? To not know your place in this world. To not know why you’re here… That’s… That’s just an awful feeling.

What have you done…?

But I found you. So many sacrifices, just to find you.
– Elijah Price
Jesus Christ…
– David Dunn
Now that we know who you are, I know who I am. I’m not a mistake! It all makes sense! In a comic, you know how you can tell who the arch-villain’s going to be? He’s the exact opposite of the hero. And most times they’re friends, like you and me! I should’ve known way back when… You know why, David? Because of the kids. They called me Mr Glass.

And, to answer your question, there are two reasons why I’m looking at you like this. One because it seems in a few minutes you will officially be the only survivor of this train wreck, and two, because you didn’t break one bone, you don’t have a scratch on you.
– ER Doctor

You killed all those people.
– David Dunn
But I found you. So many sacrifices just to find you.
– Elijah Price

Do you know what the scariest thing is? To not know your place in this world, to not know why you’re here. That’s – that’s just an awful feeling.

They say this one has a surprise ending.
– Elijah’s Mother

Friends listen to each other! And they don’t shoot each other, do they Audrey?
– David Dunn

Your bones don’t break, mine do. That’s clear. Your cells react to bacteria and viruses differently than mine. You don’t get sick, I do. That’s also clear. But for some reason, you and I react the exact same way to water. We swallow it too fast, we choke. We get some in our lungs, we drown. However unreal it may seem, we are connected, you and I. We’re on the same curve, just on opposite ends.
– Elijah Price

You’d better not be back there jacking off to the Japanese comics, I swear to God…
– Comic Book Clerk

Do you see any Teletubbies in here? Do you see a slender plastic tag clipped to my shirt with my name printed on it? Do you see a little Asian child with a blank expression on his face sitting outside on a mechanical helicopter that shakes when you put quarters in it? No? Well, that’s what you see at a toy store. And you must think you’re in a toy store, because you’re here shopping for an infant named Jeb.
– Elijah Price

I’m just going to shoot you once!

Why is it, do you think, that of all the professions in the world you chose protection?

You are a very strange man.

You could have been a tax accountant. You could have owned your own gym. You could have opened a chain of restaurants. You could’ve done of ten thousand things, but in the end, you chose to protect people. *You* made that decision, and I find that very, very interesting.
– Elijah Price

I thought maybe because you’re my dad… I thought I might be like you… I’m not like you…
– Joseph Dunn
You are like me. We can both get hurt. I’m just an ordinary man.
– David Dunn
No, you’re not… Why do you keep saying that?
– Joseph Dunn

It’s alright to be afraid, David, because this part won’t be like a comic book. Real life doesn’t fit into little boxes that were drawn for it.
– Elijah Price
