David Rice[edit]

  • Let me tell you about my day so far. Coffee in Paris, surfed the Maldives, took a little nap on Kilimanjaro. Oh, yeah, I got digits from this Polish chick in Rio. And then I jumped back for the final quarter of the N.B.A. finals, courtside of course. And that was all before lunch. I could go on, but all I'm saying is, I'm standing on top of the world.
  • [to Roland] I told you I'm different. I could have dropped you with the sharks.

Roland Cox[edit]

  • [to David] You think it could go on like this forever? Living like this with no consequences? [David tries to Jump and Cox stops him] There are always consequences!
  • You think you can hide behind a wall? Go anywhere?! Do anything?! NOT ANYMORE!!
  • There are some things you can't jump, David!!

Griffin O'Connor[edit]

  • Paladins have been killing Jumpers for years. Way back since medieval times. They're fanatics. Religious nut jobs. Inquisition, witch hunts. That was them. Look, they're smart. They're fast, they're organized. No matter what, they'll kill anyone that gets in their way. Like your family, your friends. That little girlfriend you're traipsing around with you. They're dead. All of them. Get used to it. It's just a matter of time.


Griffin: If it moves, I can jump it. Actually, I knew this Jumper once - crazy bastard - tried to hop a whole building. Won't be trying that again.
David: Why's that?
Griffin: That's 'cause he's dead. Killed him. Still managed to shake it a little though.
David: So how long you been doing this for?
Griffin: Doing what? Driving?
David: No. Jumping.
Griffin: Since I was five.
David: Five?
Griffin: Yeah.
David: How'd you keep it a secret from people? Like your parents.
Griffin: It's pretty easy when they're not around.
David: Where were they?
Griffin: Not around.

David: You, uh, you ever read Marvel Team-Up?
Griffin: Yeah, I've read it. And?
David: Two superheroes joining forces for like, uh, a limited run.
Griffin: You see, I see what you're trying to do, yeah? I'm not buying it. For your own sake, just go home.
David: You live in a cave.
Griffin: It's called a lair. And what's the point?
David: I'm just saying, you know. We, uh, kind of have this common thing.

David: Who are these people?
Griffin: Paladins. Paladins kill Jumpers, I kill Paladins. Class dismissed.

[Griffin warps back, along with some water]
David: Where did the Paladin go?
Griffin: Swimming.
David: Pacific?
Griffin: No, Atlantic. Nice little shark pit around Cuba.

David: So, I'm a Jumper. You're a Paladin.
Mary: That's right.
David: What now?
Mary: I'm giving you a head start, son. Because I love you.

David: How they doin'?
Receptionist: Down by six and a half. Don't think you'll be needing that umbrella.
David: You never know.

Griffin: You can't keep following me.
David: Actually, I'm the one person who can.
Griffin: [chuckles] Lucky me.

Jungle Jumper: Okay. Okay. Why?
Roland: Because you are an abomination. [takes out his dagger] Only God should have the power to be in all places at all times. [stabs the jungle jumper in the chest] One less of you to worry about.

David: [about bomb] What's that?
Griffin: What?
David: What are you doing?
Griffin: Nothing, I was uh, you know thinking about going bowling
David: What?
Griffin: Roland's in there with his whole army. I'm going to go back there and end this, what do you think? Yeah I'm gonna blow him to Timbuktu.
David: Millie's in there!
Griffin: Oh yeah, there is that as well.

Millie: You okay?
David: Yeah.
Millie: You sure?
David: Yeah. I am.
Millie: [smiles] Good. 'Cause I'm freezing. Can we please go someplace warm?
David: Where do you want to go?
Millie: Surprise me.
