Jericho Cane[edit]

  • [taking a swig of liquor] They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
  • Priest that drinks. Can't be all bad.
  • Easy with the hardware.
  • Between your faith and my Glock 9mm, I'll take the Glock.
  • [To Satan] You want to fuck with me? You think you know bad, huh? You're a FUCKING CHOIR BOY compared to me! A CHOIR BOY!!!
  • [Satan burns Chicago] You son of a bitch!
  • [praying to God] Please, give me strength.

Christine York[edit]

  • I've seen him in my dreams. They're nightmares, really. In the dreams, he takes me, and makes love to me.


  • Let me tell you something about Him. He is the biggest underachiever of all time. He just has a good publicist, that's all.
  • For a thousand years you've waited for my return. Behold, you have failed. And with your dying breath, you will bear witness to the End of Days.
  • You think I came here to hurt you? I didn't come here to hurt you. I came here to love you. Give yourself to me.
  • Where was God? He could have stopped it. Instead, He fucked you and made you feel guilty. Me, I don't do guilt.
  • Sometimes "Hell"... comes to "you".
  • Something good happens. "It's His will." Something bad happens. "He moves in mysterious ways."
  • I can stand the pain of being in church. How much pain can you bear?
  • [To a kid wearing a "Satan Rules" t-shirt] Nice shirt.
  • Jericho! How can you expect to defeat me when you are just a man and I am forever?!
  • [possessing Jericho] You have died for nothing. You just bought them time.


  • Chicago: Honey, I'm home!
  • Chicago: You'd be amazed what you'll agree to when you're on fire. What makes you think you're going upstairs when this is all over? After the life you've led?
  • Father Kovak: We can't prevent evil by doing evil!


Chicago: Honey, I'm home!
Jericho Cane: I was just pulling myself together.
Chicago: It's gonna take a lot more pulling. [opens the curtains] You are looking very sharp this morning.
Jericho Cane: Thanks.
Chicago: You're welcome. You got about five minutes to get ready. Here. There's enough caffeine in this to kill an elephant. Oughta get you started.
Jericho Cane: So what's today?
Chicago: Transport.
Jericho Cane: Anyone special?
Chicago: No, just some Wall Street scumbag.
Jericho Cane: Why the hell does he need all this protection?
Chicago: Well, I guess he fucked with some people that didn't like being fucked with.
Jericho Cane: Personally, I like scumbags. They pay better.

Jericho Cane: A drunk passes out in his neighborhood bar enough times, someone's going to know where he lives from carrying him home.
Chicago: Glad you're an expert on the subject.
Jericho Cane: Oh yeah, I've done years of study.

Thomas Aquinas: Oculus Dei! A thousand years has ended! The Dark Angel is loosed from his prison!
Jericho Cane: Get down on the ground and put your hands behind your head.
Thomas Aquinas: You don't know what you've done!
Jericho Cane: Get down or I'll put you down!
Thomas Aquinas: A thousand years has ended! You don't know what you've done!
[Jericho shoots Aquinas in the legs]

Chicago: She doesn't look happy with the statements.
Jericho Cane: Should've just killed that son of a bitch. Less paperwork.
Chicago: Yeah. Hey, Detective.
Marge Francis: Bobby. Hey, Jer, it's been a while.
Jericho Cane: Hey. How are you, Marge?
Marge Francis: Can't complain. You? It's a nice day to jump out of a helicopter.
Jericho Cane: Well, just doing my job.
Marge Francis: Now, listen. Something I gotta ask you.
Jericho Cane: Yeah, what is it?
Marge Francis: You still drinking?
Chicago: Oh, yeah, we got all liquored up this morning. We start every day that way.
Marge Francis: I'm just reading his statement. You said here the guy spoke to you?
Jericho Cane: Yeah, so what?
Marge Francis: The guy doesn't have a tongue.
Chicago: What?
Jericho Cane: He has no tongue?
Marge Francis: Why don't I just leave that little detail out for now. No big deal, right?
Jericho Cane: Are you saying that I imagined all this?!
Marge Francis: No, I'm just saying.
Jericho Cane: I saved a life today! What the hell did you do?!
Chicago: All right, let it go.
Jericho Cane: No, no. I know what I heard.
Chicago: All right.

Security guard: No one is allowed in here.
Satan: [smiles] The scent of the young boys you seduce still clings to you. Remember who it is you truly serve.
[Terrified, the guard lets him through]

Jericho Cane: Oh, it's us.
Marge Francis: Jesus! How the hell did you two find this place.
Jericho Cane: Lucky guess. So what did you find out?
Marge Francis: His name's Thomas Aquinas. He's a priest.
Jericho Cane: Why don't you tell us something we don't know?
Chicago: A homicidal priest. That's good.
Marge Francis: Yeah? Well, it gets better. He studied at the Vatican. He was one of their alleged visionaries. Came here in '81 to St. John's Church downtown. Six months ago, he disappeared. Priest there say he was having a spiritual crisis.
Chicago: Oh, yeah. That's what this is about. Spiritual crisis.
Jericho Cane: Doesn't make any sense. What's a priest doing shooting at a Wall Street banker?
Marge Francis: A Wall Street banker, by the way, who suddenly disappeared.
Chicago: Maybe we should ask the girl.
Marge Francis: What girl?
Chicago: Uh, the guy. The guy, priest guy.

Father Kovak: You think you've seen everything? There's a whole world you've never dreamed of. Thomas saw it, and it destroyed him.
Jericho Cane: I've seen a lot, but nothing would ever make me cut out my tongue.
Father Kovak: Wait a few days.

Father Kovak: Do you believe in God?
Jericho Cane: Maybe once, not anymore.
Father Kovak: What happened?
Jericho Cane: We had a difference of opinion. I thought my wife and daughter should live. He felt otherwise.

Dr. Abel: It's you. I didn't...
Satan: Where is she?
Dr. Abel: The girl is safe.
Satan: And what of the world?
Dr. Abel: Everything is as planned. Our acts go unnoticed, unquestioned. We're everywhere.
Evie: Daddy, who is it?
Satan: Is this your daughter?
Dr. Abel: Yes.
Satan: And this is your wife?
Dr. Abel: Yes.

Christine York: [after seeing worms in an apple] I'm sorry. I have a medical condition. Sometimes, I see things that aren't there.
Jericho Cane: No, I saw it too.

[Marge and a police officer shoot Jericho]
Jericho Cane: Jesus, Marge! What the fuck?!
Marge Frances: It's okay, Jer. We just want the girl.
Police officer: Hands on your head.
Jericho Cane: What?
Police officer: Hands on your head. Now!
Jericho Cane: What do you want with her, Marge, huh? Why is she so important?
Marge Francis: Just the girl. You can kill him.
[Jericho shoots Marge and a police officer.]

Jericho Cane: Why don't you stop all this church talk and tell us what the hell is going on? Who's after her?
Father Kovak: Well, if you'll excuse me, I'll try to explain. You know anything about the number of the beast? Revelation of St. John from his dream?
Christine York: 6-6-6?
Father Kovak: The number of the beast is not 6-6-6. Often in dreams, numbers appear upside down and backwards. So, 6-6-6 becomes 9-9-9. Like in 1999, the year of his return.
Christine York: What does that have to do with me?
Father Kovak: Regressus Diaholi: The Return of Satan. Does any of this look familiar to you?
[Christine shows her birthmark.]
Father Kovak: She's been chosen. He's in her blood. The Holy Church has been searching for you since the day you were born.
Christine York: Chosen for what?
Father Kovak: Every thousand years, on the eve of the millennium, the Dark Angel comes and takes a body, and then he walks the Earth looking for a woman who will bear his child. It all has to happen in that unholy hour before midnight on New Year's Eve. If he consummates your flesh with this body, then he unlocks the gate of Hell and everything we know it ceases to exist.
Jericho Cane: So, the Prince of Darkness wants to conquer the Earth, but has to wait until an hour before midnight on New Year's Eve? Is this Eastern time?
Father Kovak: It's got nothing to do with New Year's Eve. It has to do with a temporary celestial alignment. The Gregorian monks studied the heavens. They were able to calculate the precise moment of this event. They created our calendar by mapping this event and counting backwards from that moment.
Jericho Cane: It was a mistake to come here.
Father Kovak: It doesn't matter whether you believe or not. He's real and he won't rest till he finds this girl.
Christine York: Why did he pick me?
Father Kovak: Because the stars were right when you were born. A man's body was also chosen, just like yours.
Jericho Cane: If the devil does exist, why doesn't your God do anything?
Father Kovak: It's not my God. It's our God, and He doesn't say that He will save us. He says that we will save ourselves.
Christine York: Save myself? What am I supposed to do? Get a restraining order?
Father Kovak: We have to have faith.
Jericho Cane: Faith.
Father Kovak: Yes, faith. It's an interesting concept. If you read the Bible, you can't miss it. Faith!

Jericho Cane: Who the fuck are you?
Satan: Oh, I think you know who I am. You just don't want to believe it.
Jericho Cane: I took a bullet for you. I protected you.
Satan: Oh, no-no-no. You didn't protect me. You protected this body. Am I... Am I getting a pattern here? So much pain. "Not to be taken with alcohol." Remember that. To lose a wife and child. I can't even imagine what that must be like.
Jericho Cane: What do you want?
Satan: To make you happy again.

Satan: Now you're making me upset. You don't want to see me upset.
Jericho Cane: You want to fuck with me? You think you know bad, huh? You're a FUCKING CHOIR BOY compared to me! A CHOIR BOY!!!
Satan: You're in touch with your anger. I admire that. Well, I don't know about you, but I'm going to have a drink.

Satan: All you gotta do is grab my hand and I'll take everything back He took away.
Jericho Cane: Okay, okay, okay.
[Jericho tries to grab Satan's hand but grabs him in the back]
Jericho Cane: Fuck you!
[He tosses Satan to the car from his apartment]

Jericho Cane: [somewhat surprised] You're bleeding!
Chicago: Of course I'm bleeding! You fucking shot me!
Jericho Cane: I just needed to find out!
Chicago: Well, you found out, okay?!
Jericho Cane: Stop being such a pussy!
Chicago: Pussy? Come on!
Jericho Cane: It's just a scratch.
Chicago: Oh, Christ.
Jericho Cane: Does it hurt?
Chicago: Yeah, what do you think? Jesus. What the hell's matter with you? What's going on?
Jericho Cane: I can't explain it.

Jericho Cane: No one move or I'll kill the girl.
Christine York: What are you doing?
Jericho Cane: Trust me.
Satan: You're not gonna kill her.
Jericho Cane: You said it yourself. I have a dark heart.
Satan: Then stand with me!
Jericho Cane: I'll tell you what. You let us both out of here and I'll stand wherever you want. [Satan moves] Step back or I'll pull the trigger.
Satan: I didn't want to kill you, but now you leave me no choice.

Christine York: I'd feel better if you'd show me how to use one of these things. I want to do something. Let me help.
Jericho Cane: All right. Here. You take the gun. Line up the sight with your target. Beware the recoil. Here's the magazine. Put it in. Load. Only pull the trigger when you're ready...
[Christine shoots a Satanist]
Christine York: Like that?
Jericho Cane: Yeah, like that.



  • Prepare for the end.
  • The end is near
  • When the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison.
  • Prepare.
  • Prepare for the end of days.
  • On the eve of the millenium an ex-cop torn by loss must regain his faith in order to quell the end of days.
  • You will bear witness to the End of Days...
