Are You Ready For The Truth?(taglines)

David Dunn[edit]

  • I had met a lot of people like you in my work, people who tell you a story, a fantastic story, and then say it can be true, and in all of these fantastic things, and somewhere in there they say it, all I need is your credit card number.

Elijah Price[edit]

  • Do you see any toys in here? Do you see a slender plastic tag clipped to my shirt with my name printed on it? Do you see a little Asian child with a blank expression on his face sitting outside on a mechanical helicopter that shakes when you put quarters in it? No? Well, that's what you see at a toy store. And you must think you're in a toy store, because you're here shopping for an infant named Jeb.
  • You could have been a tax accountant. You could have owned your own gym. You could have opened a chain of restaurants. You could've done of a thousand things, but in the end, you chose to protect people. You made that decision, and I find that very, very interesting.
  • So many times I questioned myself. So many sacrifices, just to find you.
  • Your bones don't break, mine do. That's clear. Your cells react to bacteria and viruses differently than mine. You don't get sick, I do. That's also clear. But for some reason, you and I react the exact same way to water. We swallow it too fast, we choke. We get some in our lungs, we drown. However unreal it may seem, we are connected, you and I. We're on the same curve, just on opposite ends.
  • [After proving Dunn's superhuman abilities]...Now all I need is a credit card number. [Dunn stares at him, pauses] The last one was a joke.
  • It's hard for many people to believe that there are extraordinary things inside themselves, as well as others. I hope you can keep an open mind.
  • Go to where people are, you won't have to look very long. It's alright to be afraid, David, because this part won't be like a comic book. Real life doesn't fit into little boxes that were drawn for it.
  • Do you know what the scariest thing is? To not know your place in this world, to not know why you're here.
  • Now that we know who you are... I know who I am. I'm not a mistake! It all makes sense, in the comic you know how you can tell who the arch villain is going to be? He's the exact opposite of the hero! And most times they're friends, like you and me. I should've known way back when. You know why David? Because of the kids! They called me Mr. Glass.


Joseph Dunn: Do you think you could've beaten up Bruce Lee?
David Dunn: No.
Joseph Dunn: I mean if you knew karate.
David Dunn: No.
Joseph Dunn: Well, what if he wasn't allowed to kick and you were really mad at him?
David Dunn: No, Joseph.

David Dunn: I wanted to ask you a question. It's gonna sound a little strange, just think about it for a second, okay?
Audrey Dunn: Okay.
David Dunn: When's the last time I was sick? Do you remember?
Audrey Dunn: Um, I don't know. It's been a while.
David Dunn: I haven't been sick this year, I know that.
Audrey Dunn: Okay.
David Dunn: Do you remember me getting sick?
Audrey Dunn: Um... not a specific day. What - what's this about?
David Dunn: Audrey, do you remember me ever getting sick? In the three years we lived in this house? In the old apartment? Before Joseph was born? Before we ever got married?
Audrey Dunn: I - I can't remember.
David Dunn: Don't you think that's kind of weird, not remembering one cold or a fever or a sore throat? What do you think it means?
Audrey Dunn: Um... I think it means probably too tired to remember.

Mrs. Price: This is one of Johann Davis's earliest drawings. See the villain's eyes? They're larger than the other characters'. They — insinuate a slightly skewed perspective on how they see the world. Just off normal.
David Dunn: Doesn't look scary.
Mrs. Price: Mm-hmm. That's what I said to my son. But he says there's always two kinds; there's the soldier villain — who fights the hero with his hands; and then there's the real threat — the brilliant and evil archenemy — who fights the hero with his mind.

Elijah Price: It has begun. Tell me something, David. When you woke up this morning... Was it still there? The sadness?
David Dunn: No.
Elijah Price: I think this is where we shake hands. [handshake]
Elijah Price: [flashback occurs upon shaking] I worked in that building 25 years, I know all its secrets.
David Dunn: Secrets?
Elijah Price: Like, if there ever was a fire on floors 1, 2 or 3, everyone in that hotel would be burned alive. [after flashbacks end] You know what the scariest thing is? To not know your place in this world. To not know why you're here... That's... That's just an awful feeling.
David Dunn: What have you done...?
Elijah Price: I almost gave up hope. There were so many times I questioned myself...
David Dunn: You killed all those people...
Elijah Price: But I found you. So many sacrifices, just to find you.
David Dunn: Jesus Christ...
Elijah Price: Now that we know who you are, I know who I am. I'm not a mistake! It all makes sense! In a comic, you know how you can tell who the arch-villain's going to be? He's the exact opposite of the hero. And most times they're friends, like you and me! I should've known way back when... You know why, David? Because of the kids. They called me Mr Glass.
