[Deciding who should jump off first]
Right, you go first.
No, you go first.
[Thugs shoot at them]
I’ll go first.
Tell me something I can hold on to forever and never let go.
Kids these days are really spoilt… its like ‘mummy, I want a playstation, mummy, I want you to kill that man’…
[holding shoes Balthazar has just given him]
These are old-man shoes.
[having noticed that Balthazar is wearing the same style of shoe]
I love them… a lot.
On the day of my judgment, when I stand before God, and He asks me why did I kill one of his true miracles, what am I gonna say? That it was my job? My job?
You tell God the Father it was a kindness you done. I know you hurtin’ and worryin’, I can feel it on you, but you oughta quit on it now. Because I want it over and done. I do. I’m tired, boss. Tired of bein’ on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. Tired of not ever having me a buddy to be with, or tell me where we’s coming from or going to, or why. Mostly I’m tired of people being ugly to each other. I’m tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world everyday. There’s too much of it. It’s like pieces of glass in my head all the time. Can you understand?
Yes, John. I think I can.
She thinks she’s found a magical land… In the upstairs wardrobe.
[eyes widening, he rushes to the children]
What did you say?
Um, the wardrobe. Upstairs. Lucy thinks she’s found a forest inside.
She won’t stop going on about it.
What was it like?
Like talking to a lunatic.
No, no, no. Not her, the forest!
You’re not saying you believe her?
But, of course not. I mean, logically it’s impossible.
What do they teach in schools these days?
[sees giant snakes]
We should run.
We mortals do it all the time!
Vigo the Carpathian. Born 1505, died 1610.
105 years old, he hung in there, didn’t he?
He didn’t die of old age, either. He was poisoned, stabbed, shot, hung, stretched, disembowled, drawn and quartered.
Guess he wasn’t too popular at the end, huh?
No, not exactly a man of the people. Also known as Vigo the Cruel, Vigo the Torturer, Vigo the Despised, and Vigo the Unholy.
Wasn’t he also Vigo the Butch?
And dig this, there was a prophecy. Just before his head died, his last words were ”Death is but a door. Time is but a window. I’ll be back.”
