Lara Croft[edit]

  • Nature is about balance. All the world comes in pairs. Yin and Yang. Right and Wrong. Men and Women. What's pleasure without pain.
  • Some things were not meant to be found.
  • I'm not leaving because I couldn't kill you. I'm leaving because I could.

Terry Sheridan[edit]

  • [Lara pulls out a key] What? Key to your heart?
  • [Walking up a hill] And don't be looking at my ass.


Terry Sheridan: Now does that make me Faust or the Devil?
Lara Croft: Well you can pick one, because MI6 is also arranging for a new identity.

Terry Sheridan: This is a little faster. But the Chinese will track the pod.
Lara Croft: There won't be any pod to find.
Terry Sheridan: Will there be any of us to find?

Terry Sheridan: You're laughing at me.
Lara Croft: No, at the fact that I used to find you charming.
Terry Sheridan: I am charming.

Kosa: Do you ever do anything the easy way?
Lara Croft: And risk disappointing you?

Nicholas Petraki: Hey, Lara, what do you say to two handsome Greek partners?
Lara Croft: Well, when you find two, let me know!

Lara Croft: You need to take me to the Shay-Ling.
Terry Sheridan: They Shay who?
Lara Croft: There's a man named Chen Lo who took something from me, and I want it back.

[Deciding who should jump off a building first]
Terry Sheridan: Right, you go first.
'Lara Croft: No, you go first.
[Thugs shoot at them]
Both: I'll go first.

Terry Sheridan: The Shay-Ling are like ghosts, Croft. They move constantly, and their home is the most remote mountain region in China.
Lara Croft: Region? You'll have to do better than that.
Terry Sheridan: Get me into China, and I'll get you to them in a day.
Lara Croft: No guns, no money, no weapons of any kind.
Terry Sheridan: Talk about taking the fun out of life.

Lara Croft: A bit rusty, are we?
Terry Sheridan: Oh, I think it's coming back.
Lara Croft: I expected more from a Scot.
Terry Sheridan: I don't expect anything from an Englishwoman.

Terry Sheridan: So, where do I fit in?
Lara Croft: What do you mean? You're the guide.
Terry Sheridan: I mean, when you think back on the vast scheme of your hugely adventurous life... where do I fit in? Was I the love of your life, or just another bump on the road? Was I time well spent? Four months? More good than bad? Come on, it had to be more than that, am I right?
Lara Croft: You're right. It was five months.

Terry Sheridan: You're a hard act to follow, Croft. You know why you and I get along so well?
Lara Croft: [Laughs] No.
Terry Sheridan: We are two of a kind, me and you.
Lara Croft: ''[Laughs harder] We are nothing alike.
Terry Sheridan: I don't think we're alike, but I do think we're a pair. Opposite sides of the same coin.

[Bryce and Hillary are getting made over by tribes people]
Lara Croft: [smiling] This is... very touching.
Bryce: You know us, always making friends... having a laugh.
Lara Croft: Getting married.
Bryce: What?
Kosa: This is a wedding ceremony and you are the grooms.
Lara Croft: Good luck, boys.
