Christian Grey

  • (to Ana) Where have you been?
  • (to Ana) I like to see your face. Gives me some clue what you might be thinking.
  • What is it about elevators?
  • Welcome to my world.
  • (to Ana) You want hearts and flowers? That's not something I know.
  • (to Ana) I never took anyone on a helicopter. Never had sex on my own bed. Never slept next to anyone. Ever. Only you.
  • (to Ana) I'm not the man for you. You should steer clear of me. I have to let you go.
  • (narrating as Ana reads the contract) The following are the terms of a binding contract between the dominant and the submissive. The fundamental purpose of this contract is to allow the submissive to explore her sensuality and her limits safely. The dominant and the submissive agree and acknowledge that all that occurs under the terms of this contract will be consensual, confidential, and subject to the agreement and safety procedures set out in this contract. The submissive will agree to any sexual activity seemed fit and pleasurable by the dominant, accepting those activities outlined in hard limits. The submissive agrees to procure oral contraceptives from the physician of the dominant's choosing. The submissive will not enter into sexual relations with anyone other than the dominant. The submissive will eat regularly to maintain her health and well-being from a prescribed list of foods. The submissive will not drink to excess, smoke, or take recreational drugs. The submissive shall always conduct herself in a respectful manner to the dominant and she'll only address him as sir, Mr. Grey, or such other title as the dominant may direct. The submissive may not touch the dominant without his expressed permission to do so. The safe word "yellow" will be used to bring to the attention of the dominant that the submissive is close to her limit. When the safe word "red" is spoken, the dominant's action will cease completely and immediately.

Anastasia Steele

  • I don't know if I can be with him the way he needs me to.
  • Stop. No!
  • Say I did stay. What would happen?
  • (asking Christian about his scars) Are they burns?
  • (to Christian) Is this what you want? You want to see me like this?
  • (to Christian) I need you to show me. What you want to do to me. Punish me! Show me how bad it can be. I want you to show me the worst... It's the only way I can understand.

Kate Kavanagh

  • (to Ana, about Christian) You're seeing him again tonight. That means that something happened.
  • Ana... just go at your own pace.


Christian: (during the interview) The key to my success has been in identifying talented individuals, and harnessing their efforts.
Anastasia: So you are a control freak?
Christian: Oh, I exercise control in all things, Miss Steele.

Kate: (during the photo shoot, about Christian) You do realize that he hasn't stopped looking at you.
Anastasia: He asked me to go for coffee afterwards.

Anastasia: (drinking her Cosmo) I broke rule seven, clause five.
Christian: We'll let it go. Let's not talk about the contract right now.

Christian: What about you? I'd like to know more about you.
Anastasia: There's really not much to know about me. Look at me.
Christian: (intently)I am.

Anastasia: Why are you trying to change me?
Christian: I'm not. It's you that's changing me.

Kate: (about Christian) What was he like?
Anastasia: (shyly) He was polite. Intense. Smart. Really intimidating.

Christian: What happened to calling before dropping by?
Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey: Oh, and have your henchmen give me the run around? No thank you. I'll take my chances.

Christian: I want to take you to my playroom.
Anastasia: But I haven't signed the contract.
Christian: I'm well aware. Call it due diligence.

Anastasia: I'll review all these changes and try to arrive at a decision.
Christian: You want to leave?
Anastasia: Yes.
Christian: But your body tells me something different. Your legs, for instance. The way you're pressing your thighs together under the table. And the change in your breathing. And in your complexion.
Anastasia: My complexion?
Christian: You're flushed.
Anastasia: That could just be the wine.
Christian: It's the adrenaline.

Christian: (surprising Ana) I thought that was you!
Anastasia: What the?
Christian: What a pleasant surprise, Miss Steele.
Anastasia: Just Ana. (clears throat) Just Ana. You're in here?
Christian: I was in the area on business. Needed to pick up a few things.Are you free?
Anastasia: Yeah! What can I help you with?
Christian: Do you stock cable ties?
Anastasia: Cable ties, yes we do. I can show you if you want.
Christian: Please lead the way, Miss Steele.
Anastasia: Just Ana. Is that it?
Christian: Masking tape.
Anastasia: Are you redecorating?
Christian: No.
Anastasia: Um, we have two inch and one inch, but the truly self respecting handyman will have both in his toolbox.
Christian: Of course he will.
Anastasia: It's rare to find a connoisseur these days. Do you want anything else?
Christian: Yes. Rope.‘’(watching her measure out rope by hand)’’ That's impressive. You a girl scout?
Anastasia: Um, no. Organized group activities aren't really my thing.
Christian: So what is your thing?
Anastasia: I don't know. Books? Okay... rope, tape, cable ties. You're look complete serial killer.
Christian: (smiling) Not today.

Christian: It's just behind this door.
Anastasia: What is?
Christian: My playroom.
Anastasia: Like your Xbox and stuff?
Christian: It's important that you know you can leave at anytime.
Anastasia: Why? What's in there?
Christian: I meant what I said. The helicopter is on standby to take you whenever you want to go.
Anastasia: Christian, just open the door!

Anastasia: Why am I here, Christian?
Christian: You're here because I'm incapable of leaving you alone.
Anastasia: Then don't. Why'd you send me those books?
Christian: I thought I owed you an apology.
Anastasia: For what?
Christian: For letting you believe that I... Listen to me. I don't do romance. My tastes are very singular. You wouldn't understand.
Anastasia: Enlighten me, then.

Christian: (answers his phone) Anastasia.
Anastasia: (drunkenly) Yeah, this is me. I'm sending back your expensive books because I already have copies of those. Thanks though for the kind gesture.
Christian: You're welcome. Where are you?
Anastasia: Oh, I'm in line because I have to pee really bad.
Christian: Anastasia, have you been drinking?
Anastasia: (laughs) Yeah! I have, Mr. Fancy Pants. You hit... you hit the hail on the nead. I mean the head right on the nail.
Christian: Listen to me. I want you to go home right now.
Anastasia: You're so bossy! Ana, let's go for a coffee. No, stay away from me Ana! I don't want you! Get away. Come here, come here! Go away!
Christian: That's it. Tell me where you are.
Anastasia: A long way from Seattle! A long way from you.
Christian: Which bar? What's it called?
Anastasia: I don't know. I gotta go, though.

Anastasia: You're a sadist?
Christian: I'm a dominant.
Anastasia: What is that mean?
Christian: It means that I want you to willingly surrender yourself to me.
Anastasia: Why would I do that?
Christian: To please me.
Anastasia: To please you? How?
Christian: I have rules. If you follow them, I'll reward you. If you don't, I'll punish you.
Anastasia: What can I get out of this?
Christian: Me.

Christian: You have a beautiful body, Anastasia. I want you unashamed of your nakedness. Do you understand?
Anastasia: Yes sir.
Christian: You're biting your lip. You know what that does to me.

Christian: Please don't hate me.
Anastasia: (crying) You'll never do that to me again. I'm not what you want.
Christian: No. You're everything that I want.
Anastasia: I've fallen in love with you.

Christian: Good morning, Anastasia. How you feeling?
Anastasia: Better than I deserve. Did you put me to bed?
Christian: Mmhm.
Anastasia: You undressed me?
Christian: I didn't have much choice.
Anastasia: Where did you sleep? (as Christian points next to her) God, did we? We didn't?
Christian: Necrophilia's not my thing.
Anastasia: You just slept, then?
Christian: It was a novelty for me, too.

Anastasia: How did you start doing this?
Christian: One of my mother's friends. I was 15.
Anastasia: She seduced you?
Christian: I was her submissive for six years.
Anastasia: Seriously? Does your mother know that?
Christian: Of course not. No one in my family knows about this part of me.
Anastasia: So she introduced you to all this? Mrs. Robinson?
Christian: (chuckles) Mrs. Robinson? I'll tell her you said that. She'll love it.
Anastasia: You still talk to her?
Christian: On occasion. We're friends.

Anastasia: Impressive
Christian: I've done this meetings i mean.
Christian: Miss Steele, your meeting.
Anastasia: Page 1: Strike out my old address and replace with the new one.
Christian: An oversight. Duly noted.
Anastasia: Page 3, Section 15;20: The submissive shall submit to any sexual activity demanded by the dominant and shall do so without hesitation or argument. (laughs) Um, turn to page 5, Appendix 3. Soft limits?
Christian: With you.
Anastasia: Find anal fisting.
Christian: I'm all ears.
Anastasia: Strike it out. Strike out vaginal fisting, too.
Christian: Are you sure?
Anastasia: Yep. Same page, is the use of sex toys acceptable to the submissive? Vibrators, okay. Dildos, fine. Genital clamps, absolutely not.
Christian: Consider them gone.

Anastasia: What do you want? What do you want!
Christian: I want you.
Anastasia: I'm trying, Christian.
Christian: I know you are.
Anastasia: Why can't we sleep in the same bed? Why won't you let me touch you? Why does it have to be like this?
Christian: If you just sign a contract you wouldn't have to think about anything...
Anastasia: Why do you care so much about the contract Christian? Don't you like me the way I am?
Christian: Of course I do.
Anastasia: Then, why are you trying to change me?
Christian: I'm not. It's...
Anastasia: I need more! I want more!
