The Grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer. What did they look like? Ships? Motorcycles? Were the circuits like freeways? I kept dreaming of a world I’d thought I’d never see. And then, one day…
You got in!
That’s right, man. I got in.

(Opening words)

Kevin Flynn[edit]

  • In there is a new world! In there is our future! In there…is our destiny!
  • Chaos. Good news.
  • Sometimes life has a way of moving you past things like wants and hopes.

Sam Flynn[edit]

  • I’m not a program!
  • I’m a User. I’ll improvise.
  • He actually did it. I’m on the Grid
  • I’m not a program. My name is Sam Flynn.
  • You want to play? I’ll play


  • I’ve been waiting a long time for this
  • Game on, old friend.
  • You’ve been corrupted
  • Out there, is a new world! Out there is our victory! Out there…is our destiny.


  • Made it.
  • I’ve seen what Users are capable of, Clu. You don’t belong with them.
  • I guess you could say I’m…a rescue.


  • The game has changed, son of Flynn!
  • Behold! The son of our maker!
  • This is going to be quite a ride.


  • User.
  • Flynn, go!
  • I fight for the Users!


Sam Flynn: Can we play doubles? On the same team?
Kevin Flynn: We’re always on the same team.

Alan Bradley: Given the prices that we charge to students and schools, what sort of improvements have been made in Flynn… I mean ENCOM OS-12?
Richard Mackey: This year we put a “12” on the box.

(After the security guard ‘corners’ him on top of the building)
Sam: Don’t sweat it. You’re boss is okay with this.
Guard: Like hell he is.
Sam: Your boss works for the CEO, and the CEO works for the shareholders. Now do you know who the biggest shareholder is?
Guard: I don’t know, some kid?
(Sam spreads his hands indicating himself)
Guard: You’re Mr. Flynn? Why? This is your father’s company.
Sam: Not anymore.

Sam: Alan, you’re acting like I’m gonna to find him sitting there working. Just “Hey kiddo. Lost track of time”.
Alan: (Throwing him the keys) Wouldn’t that be something?

Sam: What am I supposed to do?
Gem: Survive.

Sam: What’s this? (holds it forward like a sword) What do I do with this?
Jarvis: I’ll give you a hint. Not that.

Kevin: I don’t think this is a good idea.
Quorra: You’re probably right.

Computer: Combatant 3 versus Rinzler.
(Rinzler steps forward)
Crowd: Rinzler! Rinzler! Rinzler!
Sam: You got to be kidding me.
(Rinzler reaches back and pulls out his disk and separates it into two. Sam tries the same thing, but can’t)
Sam: Oh, come on. Is that even legal?

Sam: They’re turning around.
Quorra: Not by choice. Their vehicles aren’t designed to work off-Grid. They’ll malfunction on this terrain.
Sam: What about us?
Quorra: (laughs) Obviously not.

Zuse: (Nervously) I realize that our alliance is, at times, uneasy. But always necessary. You know you need me, right where I am. Clu?
Clu: Of course you’re right. Enjoy the drink.
(Black guards setting up bombs as Clu and his group walk away)
Clu: (Chuckling) End of line, man.

Kevin: She’s the miracle, man. Everything I ever worked for. “A digital frontier to reshape the human condition.”
Sam: I always thought that was just a plug line.

(Sam and Quorra gazing at the portal ahead)
Quorra: It’s how I imagine the sunrise to be.
Sam: Oh, trust me. There’s no comparison.
Quorra: What’s it like?
Sam: The sun?
Quorra: Yeah.
Sam: Wow. I’ve never had to describe it. Warm. Radiant. (looks at her) Beautiful.

Kevin: My disk is everything Sam. It’s the master key. The golden ticket. The way out. And not just for me.
Sam: What do you mean?
Kevin: Our worlds are more connected than anyone knows. Clu figures if I can be in…
Sam: He can be out?
Kevin: With my disk, it’s possible.
Sam: And then what?
Kevin: Game over. The guy doesn’t dig imperfection. What’s more imperfect than our world?

Sam: Cell phones, online dating, Wi-Fi.
Kevin: What’s Wi-Fi?
Sam: Wireless interlinking.
Kevin: Of digital devices?
Sam: Yeah.
Kevin: Hmm. I thought of that in ‘85
(Both laugh)

Clu: Why?
Kevin: He’s my son.

Sam: Must have been something before Clu screwed it up.
Kevin: No, no, he… He’s me. I screwed it up. Chasing after perfection. Chasing after what was right in front of me. (Turns to Sam) Right in front of me.
Sam: Look what you’ve accomplished. It’s incredible.
Kevin: (Put a hand on Sam’s shoulder) Sam. I’d have given it all up for one more day with you.

Kevin: You are Clu.
Clu: I am Clu.
Kevin: You will create the perfect system.
Clu: I will create the perfect system.
Kevin: Together we’re going to change the world, man.

(After escaping and realizing Kevin had lost his disk, Sam wants to go back to get it)
Kevin: No, we stay together.
Sam: Dad, I can do this.
Kevin: You’ve done enough already! Sam, you’re really… You’re messing with my Zen thing, man.

(Quorra showing Sam the book collection)
Quorra: …But between you and me, Jules Verne is my favorite. Do you know Jules Verne?
Sam: Sure.
Quorra: (excitedly) What’s he like?

Sam: Oh, and, you were right, Alan.
Alan: About what?
Sam: About everything.

Quorra: So what’s next, Sam?
Sam: I guess we’re supposed to change the world.
