Final Fantasy VII Remake
Final Fantasy VII Remake is an action role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix and released in 2020. It is part of a planned series of games remaking the entirety of the original 1997 PlayStation game Final Fantasy VII. The first entry is set in the dystopian cyberpunk metropolis of Midgar, and primarily follows the protagonist, mercenary Cloud Strife, as he and an eco-terrorist group known as AVALANCHE oppose a powerful megacorporation known as Shinra from using the planet's life essence as an energy source.

- Survival can be a matter of luck or skill. And you can't rely on luck. [Ch. 2]
- Watch the tail! You don't want to be hit by that laser! [Ch. 1]
- If it feels wrong, don't do it. [Ch. 3/4]
- I'm a light sleeper. It's a SOLDIER thing. [Ch. 14]
- Nailed it, I know, thank you. Moving on. [Ch. 9]
- When we were kids everybody wanted to be a SOLDIER. By the time I made it in, they didn't need heroes anymore. [Ch. 3]
- Fine. I promise. [Ch. 4]
- You okay? [Ch. 5]
- I'm not cut out for this crap. [Ch. 5]
- Quit acting like you know me! [Ch. 8]
- Bring it on, bitch. [Ch. 18]
- Y'all have to look at the big picture here. Nothing worth fighting for was ever won without sacrifice. [Ch. 2]

- Hold onto this. This anger. Okay? [Ch. 13]

- Just thinking about busting into Shinra HQ's got me fired up! [Ch. 16]

- I'm a man of modest dreams. Dropping you from seventy stories up would get me damn near to good. [Ch. 17]

- Ain't you two havin' fun! [Ch. 18]

- We're not delicious! Not even a little bit! [Ch. 10]
- ...We need to make the most of the time we have — to live our lives the way we wanna live. Every minute... every moment, matters. [Ch. 14]
- I'm glad I met you, Cloud. I really am. I'm grateful for all the words we've shared. For all the moments, and the memories. You've made me more happy than you know. [Ch. 14]
- People hate the steel sky, the slums... but I don’t. How could I? All that passion, all those dreams, flowing and blending together into something greater... [Ch. 7]
- ... But whatever happens, you can't fall in love with me. Even if you think you have...it's not real. [Ch. 14]
- The Shinra Electric Power Company isn't the real enemy. I promise you. There's a much bigger threat. I just want to do everything in my power to help. All of you... and the planet. [Ch. 17]
- The first guy I ever loved... (muted) [Ch. 9]
- Is Tifa like... your girlfriend? [Ch.8]
- Can I come? Then it's a date! [Ch. 10]
- A long time ago I used to sell flowers here. [Ch. 9]
- Go. Follow your heart. [Ch. 12]
- I'm a friend! Of Tifa's! [Ch. 12]
- I miss it. The steel sky. [Ch. 18]
- I'm not some princess who needs to be coddled. (Ladder she's climbing breaks) Shit. [Ch. 7]
- Sorry I'm late. [Ch. 18]
- Is it our destiny to defy destiny? It's an interesting question. [Ch. 18]
- If it's to be a hunt, you could use a nose like mine. [Ch. 18]
- Labrat Dog! [Ch. 17]
- I am what you see before you. Nothing more. I'd appreciate it if we simply left it at that. Agreed? [Ch. 16]
- I'm the one who carried you. [Ch. 17]
- Together we can cast off the yoke of fate... together. [Ch. 18]
- All born are bound to her. Should this world be unmade, so too shall her children. [Ch. 18]
- Seven seconds until the end. Time enough for you. Perhaps. But what will you do with it? [Ch. 18]
- You are too weak to save anyone. Not even yourself. [Ch. 2]
- Those who look with clouded eyes see nothing but shadows. [Ch. 18]
- You need not remind me. It was the crowning moment of our time together. But that was then, and this is now. [Ch. 2]
- That which lies ahead does not yet exist. Our world will become a part of it one day. But I will not end, nor will I have you end. [Ch. 18]
- The reunion is nothing to fear. [Ch. 8]
- You have failed again, I see. But through suffering you will grow stronger. Isn't that what you want? [Ch. 13]
- Fate is not to be taken lightly, Cloud. [Ch. 18]
- Do you fear me? [Ch. 18]
- Within my veins flows the blood of the Ancients. This planet is my birthright. [Ch. 13]
- Cloud: You're not real... you're... dead!
- Sephiroth: I am?
- Cloud: I killed you with my own-
- Sephiroth: Oh, you need not remind me. It was the crowning of our time together. But that was then, and this is now. I have a favor to ask. Don't worry. It's a small thing. Our beloved planet is dying. Slowly. Silently. Painfully. Can you bear to see the planet suffer... Cloud? Were the planet to die, so many things would be lost.
- Cloud: (while having a flashback to the Nibelheim Incident) Mom... Mom...
- Sephiroth: Your hometown that burns so bright... The sound of her voice pleading for me to spare you. The shiver of her flesh yielding to cold steel. That which binds us together would be no more. And I would be loathe to live in such a world. Which is why I must ask you this one favor. Don't worry. It's a simple thing. Run, Cloud... Run away. You have to leave... You have to live.
- Cloud: (drawing the Buster Sword) You bastard! (He swings at Sephiroth, who disappears along with the visions of Nibelheim burning)
- Sephiroth: Good, Cloud. Very good. Hold onto that hatred.
- Cloud: (putting the Buster Sword on his back and rubbing his temples) I'm seeing things. Fumes from all the mako, maybe. All right. You got this.
- Barret: (in Aerith's garden after she's been abducted by Shinra) You should rest up while you can.
- Cloud: Likewise.
- Barret: Nah, I'm good — real good. 'Sides, when I close my eyes, I start thinking 'bout things. 'Bout people. Like Finn. Lazy little punk. Kid would do damn near anything 'cept what you told him. But ask him to paint you a picture and boy howdy. Those Stamps in the tunnels? Finn's work. Every one. Then there's Al. Intel guy. He had these tricks for stealing codes I still don't understand. Stole his share of hearts, too. But, when it came to the ladies, he just had the one trick. Bouquet of flowers hidden behind his back. Funny to think, some of 'em might've even come from here. He pulled the flower trick on Tifa, believe it or not. She told him where to stick 'em.
- Cloud: 'Course she did.
- Barret: Our quartermaster, Nellie, had a good laugh at that. She was tight with Jessie. People sometimes took 'em for sisters even. They'd say "No way!" and get upset, but then they'd start giggling and you knew... (beat) Yeah... They'll all be fine. They're strong. They're tough. Like me. After we save Aerith, I'll introduce you to them.
- Cloud: Sounds good.
- Barret: (chuckles) Never thought I'd feel better after taking with your hard-boiled ass.
- Cloud: Think you can sleep now?
- Barret: Oh, yeah. Like a baby.
- Cloud: (upon seeing Tifa in Aerith's garden) Can't sleep?
- Tifa: No. You too?
- Cloud: I heard footsteps.
- Tifa: Sorry. Didn't mean to wake you.
- Cloud: I'm a light sleeper. It's a SOLDIER thing.
- Tifa: (laughs) That flower you gave me the other night. That was from Aerith, wasn't it? I knew there was something weird going on. You, buying flowers. They symbolize reunion, believe it or not. I was curious, so I looked it up. I tried to keep it alive as long as I could. But now... it's dead and buried. Like the bar... our home... and everything else. (Tifa begins to cry, walking forward to embrace Cloud) They took everything from us. Again. (After a beat, Cloud wraps his arms around her) Cloud... Cloud, you're hurting me. It's stupid. I know that crying's a waste of time.
- Cloud: That's not true.
- Tifa: Thank you.
- Cloud: (upon seeing Aerith in her garden) How is this... Is this a dream?
- Aerith: Maybe. You tell me.
- Cloud: You okay?
- Aerith: Don't I look it? I used to live in the Shinra Building, back when I was really little.
- Cloud: Your mom told us.
- Aerith: Right. So it kinda feels like I've gone back to my childhood home, you know? Honestly, it's not that bad.
- Cloud: So what, you wanna stay?
- Aerith: C'mon, Cloud. Don't be silly.
- Cloud: Your mom's really worried too.
- Aerith: "Too?" So you're worried about me?
- Cloud: Of course I am.
- Aerith: I'm sorry about that. Really.
- Cloud: Is that...?
- Aerith: (while praying) Everyone dies eventually.
- Cloud: I suppose.
- Aerith: So we need to make the most of the time we have — to live our lives the way we wanna live. Every minute... every moment matters.
- Cloud: I'll remember that.
- Aerith: Good. (beat) So...
- Cloud: You need to embrace this moment. Right?
- Aerith: (nods) I'm glad I met you, Cloud. I really am. I'm grateful for all the words we've shared. For all the moments and memories. You've made me more happy than you know. And I'll always cherish what you've given me. But... But whatever happens, you can't fall in love with me. Even if you think you have... it's not real.
- Cloud: Do I get a say in all this?
- Aerith: It's almost morning. Time to go.
- Cloud: I'm coming for you.
- Aerith: If that's what you want. Thank you.
- Barret: Home free, Red!
- Red XIII: I wouldn't celebrate just yet.
- Barret: Man, you need to lighten up. Hell, you might even try smiling. (Red smiles; it looks more like an ugly snarl)
- Barret: On second thought... maybe frowning suits you better. Hey, don't pout!
[Ch. 18, during the final boss fight]
- Aerith: (if Aerith appears during the second phase) Did you miss me?
- Cloud: Not really. He's [Sephiroth's] tough.
- Aerith: Yeah, so what? Screw him.
- Barret: This pump's sole purpose is to drain the planet dry. While you sleep, while you eat, while you shit — it's here, sucking up mako. It doesn't rest and it doesn't care! You do realize what mako is, don't you? Mako is the lifeblood of our world. The planet bleeds green like you and me bleed red. The hell you think's gonna happen when it's all gone, huh?! Answer me! You gonna stand there and pretend you can't hear the planet crying out in pain? I know you can!
- Cloud: You really hear that?
- Barret: Damn straight I do!
- Cloud: Get help.
