Are You Ready For The Truth?
- Written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
 David Dunn
- I had met a lot of people like you in my work, people who tell you a story, a fantastic story, and then say it can be true, and in all of these fantastic things, and somewhere in there they say it, all I need is your credit card number.
 Elijah Price
- Do you see any toys 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.
- 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 a thousand things, but in the end, you chose to protect people. You made that decision, and I find that very, very interesting.
- So many times I questioned myself. So many sacrifices, just to find you.
- 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.
- [After proving Dunn's superhuman abilities]...Now all I need is a credit card number. [Dunn stares at him, pauses] The last one was a joke.
- It's hard for many people to believe that there are extraordinary things inside themselves, as well as others. I hope you can keep an open mind.
- Go to where people are, you won't have to look very long. 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.
- Do you know what the scariest thing is? To not know your place in this world, to not know why you're here.
- Now that we know who you are... I know who I am. I'm not a mistake! It all makes sense, in the comic you know how you can tell who the arch villain is 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.
- Joseph Dunn: Do you think you could've beaten up Bruce Lee?
- David Dunn: No.
- Joseph Dunn: I mean if you knew karate.
- David Dunn: No.
- Joseph Dunn: Well, what if he wasn't allowed to kick and you were really mad at him?
- David Dunn: No, Joseph.
- Mrs. Price: This is one of Johann Davis's earliest drawings. See the villain's eyes? They're larger than the other characters'. They - insinuate a slightly skewed perspective on how they see the world. Just off normal.
- David Dunn: Doesn't look scary.
- Mrs. Price: Mm-hmm. That's what I said to my son. But he says there's always two kinds; there's the soldier villain - who fights the hero with his hands; and then there's the real threat - the brilliant and evil archenemy - who fights the hero with his mind.
