Here are a few quotes from Children of Men – more here.
Jasper: Your baby is the miracle the whole world has been waiting for.
Theo Faron: I can’t really remember when I last had any hope, and I certainly can’t remember when anyone else did either. Because really, since women stopped being able to have babies, what’s left to hope for?
Miriam: As the sound of the playgrounds faded, the despair set in. Very odd, what happens in a world without children’s voices.
Jasper: Everything is a mythical, cosmic battle between faith and chance.
Newsreader: Day 1,000 of the Siege of Seattle.
Newsreader: The Muslim community demands an end to the Army’s occupation of mosques.
Newsreader: The Homeland Security bill is ratified. After eight years, British borders will remain closed. The deportation of illegal immigrants will continue. Good morning. Our lead story.
Kee: Theo, the boat. The boat! It’s OK. We are safe now. We’re safe.
Theo Faron: She’s pregnant!
Luke: Yeah, it’s a miracle, innit?
Jasper: Pull my finger!
Julian: Protect Kee!
Julian: Y’know that ringing in your ears? That ‘eeeeeeeeee’? That’s the sound of the ear cells dying, like their swan song. Once it’s gone you’ll never hear that frequency again. Enjoy it while it lasts.
Jasper: What did you do for your birthday?
Theo Faron: Nothing.
Jasper: Oh come on, you must have done something.
Theo Faron: Nope. Woke up, felt like shit. Went to work, felt like shit.
Jasper: That’s called a hangover, Amigo.
TV Reporter: The world was stunned today by the death of Diego Ricardo, the youngest person on the planet, the youngest person on earth was 18 years, 4 months, 20 days, 16 hours, and 8 minutes old.
Theo Faron: I was told to tell you that you’re a fascist pig.
Theo Faron: Froley.
Kee: Name my baby Froley.
Theo Faron: It’s the first baby in 18 years. You can’t call it Froley.
Kee: Says who?
Kee: Dylan. I’ll call my baby Dylan. It’s a girl’s name, too.
Jasper: So, the Human Project is havin’ this dinner and all the wisest men in the world are there…
Theo Faron: Human Project, why do people believe this crap? … Even if they discovered the cure for infertility, doesn’t matter! Too late. World went to shit.
Theo Faron: A hundred years from now there won’t be one person to look at any of this. What keeps you going?
Nigel: You know what it is, Theo? I just don’t think about it.
Radio Announcer: And now one for all the nostalgics out there. A blast from the past all the way back from 2003, that beautiful time when people refused to accept that the future was just around the corner.
