The Untouchables

De omutbara (1987)

Malone:
[talking privately in a church]
You said you wanted to get Capone. Do you really wanna get him? You see what I’m saying is, what are you prepared to do?
Ness:
Anything within the law.
Malone:
And *then* what are you prepared to do? If you open the can on these worms you must be prepared to go all the way. Because they’re not gonna give up the fight, until one of you is dead.
Ness:
I want to get Capone! I don’t know how to do it.
Malone:
You wanna know how to get Capone? They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. *That’s* the *Chicago* way! And that’s how you get Capone. Now do you want to do that? Are you ready to do that? I’m offering you a deal. Do you want this deal?
Ness:
I have sworn to capture this man with all legal powers at my disposal and I will do so.
Malone:
Well, the Lord hates a coward.
[jabs Ness with his hand, and Ness shakes it]

Malone:
Do you know what a blood oath is, Mr. Ness?
Ness:
Yes.
Malone:
Good, ‘cause you just took one.

Johann Friedrich Struensee:
Your majesty.
Caroline Mathilde:
You recognized me.
Johann Friedrich Struensee:
I would recognize you blindfolded.
Caroline Mathilde:
But your costume is not very imaginative.
Johann Friedrich Struensee:
I’m afraid I’m not very good at the masquerade.
Caroline Mathilde:
I believe this is the one night when everyone can be themselves.
[pause]

Caroline Mathilde:
But you never remove your mask. Do you?

Milk

Milk (2008)

Harvey Milk:
[Voice Over, Last lines]
I ask this… If there should be an assassination, I would hope that five, ten, one hundred, a thousand would rise. I would like to see every gay lawyer, every gay architect come out – – If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door… And that’s all. I ask for the movement to continue. Because it’s not about personal gain, not about ego, not about power… it’s about the ”us’s” out there. Not only gays, but the Blacks, the Asians, the disabled, the seniors, the us’s. Without hope, the us’s give up – I know you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. So you, and you, and you… You gotta give em’ hope… you gotta give em’ hope.
