Trainspotting

Trainspotting (1996)

Ending / spoiler

Tommy dies a horrible and lonely death after he succumbs to HIV-related toxoplasmosis. Renton and friends do a scag deal and get 16,000 pounds. They celebrate and start making comments about each other having thoughts of running off with the money and what will happen to them if they do. Begbie goes mad and beats an unlucky pub patron, and accidentally cuts Spud's hand. After that, Renton decides to take off with the cash. As he is leaving, he looks at Spud who is signalling for him to not go. Renton ignores him. He leaves Spud his share in the locker with the passport in it. Begbie filled with rage, tears apart their hotel room, and most likely gets arrested. Renton repeats his 'Choose Life' speech and claims he is ready to choose life, a family, a f***ing big television etc. Before the credits begin, we see Spud finding his share in the locker.

Quotes

Mark "Rent-boy" Renton: Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?
