Gremlins 2 - Det nya gänget

Gremlins 2 – Det nya gänget (1990)

Grandpa Fred:
[interviewing Brain Gremlin]
Creature what is it that you want?
Brain Gremlin:
Fred, what we want is, I think, what everyone wants, and what you and your viewers have: civilization.
Grandpa Fred:
Yes, but what sort of civilization are you speaking of?
Brain Gremlin:
The niceties, Fred. The fine points: diplomacy, compassion, standards, manners, tradition… that’s what we’re reaching toward. Oh, we may stumble along the way, but civilization, yes. The Geneva Convention, chamber music, Susan Sontag. Everything your society has worked so hard to accomplish over the centuries, that’s what we aspire to; we want to be civilized.
[a Gremlin with a beanie cap acts goofy next to Brain]

Brain Gremlin:
You take a look at this fellow here.
[Brain shoots the Gremlin in the head. The Gremlins in the bar laugh. Grandpa Fred and Kujitsu leave]

Brain Gremlin:
Now, was that civilized? No, clearly not. Fun, but in no sense civilized. Now, bear in mind, none of us has been in New York before. There are the Broadway shows – we’ll have to find out how to get tickets. There’s also a lot of street crime, but I believe we can watch that for free. We want the essentials. Dinettes. Complete bedroom groups. Convenient credit, even though we’ve been turned down in the past.

Gremlins (1984)

Kate Beringer:
Now I have another reason to hate Christmas.
Billy Peltzer:
What are you talking about?
Kate Beringer:
The worst thing that ever happened to me was on Christmas. Oh, God. It was so horrible. It was Christmas Eve. I was 9 years old. Me and Mom were decorating the tree, waiting for Dad to come home from work. A couple hours went by. Dad wasn’t home. So Mom called the office. No answer. Christmas Day came and went, and still nothing. So the police began a search. Four or five days went by. Neither one of us could eat or sleep. Everything was falling apart. It was snowing outside. The house was freezing, so I went to try to light up the fire. That’s when I noticed the smell. The firemen came and broke through the chimney top. And me and Mom were expecting them to pull out a dead cat or a bird. And instead they pulled out my father. He was dressed in a Santa Claus suit. He’d been climbing down the chimney… his arms loaded with presents. He was gonna surprise us. He slipped and broke his neck. He died instantly. And that’s how I found out there was no Santa Claus.

Run All Night

Run All Night (2015)

Jimmy Conlon:
I’ve done terrible things in my life. Things for which I can never be forgiven. I betrayed friends, turned my back on the ones closest to me. I’ve always known that my sins would eventually catch up to me. No sin goes unpunished in this life. Your life doesn’t flash before your eyes when you are dying. That’s bullshit. It’s your regrets that haunt you in your final moments. Everything you’ve failed to be. Everyone you let down. Everything you’d go back and change, if only you had more time.

Principal Thomas Walker:
And you want us to go outside?
Gary:
You don’t understand.
Allison:
Yes you have to.
Principal Thomas Walker:
This is a storm shelter for Christ’s sake.
Pete:
Not for this
Allison:
Will you please believe us. We have been out there and we know what this thing can do.
Principal Thomas Walker:
I am not going to risk having hundreds of dead people…
Gary:
You will have hundreds of dead people if you stay here.
Allison:
Sir. I have been studying storms all my life, alright? This one is bigger than any one that has ever been. Do you hear that? It will flatten this building in seconds.
Gary:
With or without you, we’re getting these people onto those busses right now.
