Verbatim Transcription of Smurf Discussion[edit]

Hello. It's November 2006. I rewrote the Smurf discussion under dialouge to reflect a verbatim transcription of the dialouge as found in the movie. There were many errors and additions I corrected. Anybody wants to listen to the scene and read it to double check that will be great. Y'know what's the point of living...if you don't have a dick? Best line ever. What I put:


Sean Smith: Beer and pussy. That's all I need.
Ronald Fisher: Well we gotta find ourselves a Smurfette.
Sean Smith: Smurfette?
Ronald Fisher: Mmm-hmm [gulps beer]. Not some like tight-ass Middlesex chick, y'know? Like this cute little blonde that'll get down and dirty with the guys. Like Smurfette does.
Sean Smith: [Nods Agreement] Hmm.
Donnie: Smurfette doesn't fuck.
Ronald Fisher: That's bullshit. Smurfette fucks all the other Smurfs. Why do you think Papa Smurf made her? It's because all the other Smurfs were getting too horny.
Sean Smith: No, no, no, not Vanity. I heard he was a homosexual.
Ronald Fisher: Okay well you know what then, she fucks them while Vanity watches, okay?
Sean Smith: Well what about Papa Smurf? I mean, he must get into all the action.
Ronald Fisher: Yeah. What he does: He films the gangbang, later on...he beats off to the tape.
Donnie: [earnestly] First of all: Papa Smurf didn't create Smurfette - Gargamel did! She was sent in as Gargamel's evil spy with the intention of destroying the Smurf village. But the overwhelming goodness of the Smurf way of life transformed her. And as for the whole gangbang scenario - Huh! I - it just couldn't happen. Smurfs are asexual, th-they don't even have...reproductive organs under those little...white...pants. That's what's so illogical, y'know, about being a Smurf. Y'know what's the point of living... if you don't have a dick?
Sean Smith: [sighs] Dammit Donnie wh-why you gotta get so smart on us?


I got here because googling for what I knew to be the exact exchange heard during this scene turned up a plethora of inconsistent and incorrect transcriptions, so the misinformation has spread pretty far already. And I fear there could be just as many errors in all the other transcriptions due to lazy copy and pasting of dialouge and no actual listening and proofing. I'll look at a few others, but time is on my side.

We'll never get out of this life alive.


Philosophy of Time Travel[edit]

I was thinking about including the entire text of the Philosophy of Time Travel written for the movie into the article. Some of the text is shown in the director's cut and the full text is available on the Donnie Darko website for those who can figure it out. Would this be an appropriate thing to do considering this website is more for listing quotes rather than text? If no one objects in a few days I'll just put it in. -Ryan Lynch —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 63.149.110.206 (talkcontribs) 19:25, 2 August 2005 (UTC)

Not in correct order[edit]

Some of the quotes don't fit where they are in the movie could someone edit so they are? ~ —This unsigned comment is by 216.186.53.53 (talkcontribs) .

Scripts as sources[edit]

Hey, I'm going to bookmark this page. I have the actual script of Donnie Darko that I won on an Ebay thing. I could make sure all of the quotes and transcriptions are 100% correct if you guys want . . . —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 64.91.70.98 (talkcontribs) 07:03, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Published scripts can be useful in discerning difficult passages, but they frequently don't list all the actual dialog accurately. Use them with caution. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 10:31, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

DVD commentary[edit]

July 22 2007 Does anyone know if it would be appropriate to put quotes from the DVD commentary of the film on the film’s quote page or should it be under a separate page for the speaker.
