Movie Quote Quiz

Quentin: Start with us. We got an escape artist and a cop. There's gotta be a reason for that. You're a doctor, Holloway. That gives you a function, a reason, right?
Holloway: No! It just makes me go, "Why me and not one of the other ten million doctors out there?"

Worth: What do ya think?
Leaven: You don't have a lot of lives left.

Worth: This is an accident, a forgotten, perpetual public works project. You think anybody wants to ask questions? All they want is a clear conscience and a fat paycheck.

Quentin: Who do you think the establishment is? It's just guys like me. Their desks are bigger, but their jobs aren't. They don't conspire, they buy boats.

Quentin: For Christ's sake, Worth, what do you live for? Do you have a wife, or a girlfriend, or something?
Worth: Nope. I've gotta pretty fine collection of pornography.

Holloway: You've got a gift.
Leaven: It's not a gift. It's just a brain.

Quentin: I'm not dying in a fucking rat maze.

Quentin: Why don't you tell us what your purpose is, Worth?
Worth: Often wondered that myself. I'm just a guy, I work in an office building doing office building stuff. I wasn't exactly bursting with joie de vivre before I got here, life just sucks in general.
Holloway: Oh I can't stand that attitude.
Leaven: 'Cos he's right.

Worth: I'm the poison. I designed the outer shell.

Quentin: Somebody has to take responsibility around here.
Worth: And that somebody has to be you?
Quentin: Not all of us have the luxury of playing nihilist.
Worth: Not all of us are conceited enough to play hero.

Quentin: Is that your two cents worth, Worth?
Worth: For what it's worth.

Leaven: You figure it out! You haven't done anything! All you do is freak out, you murderer.

Worth: Hey! Listen to what I'm saying. We haven't been moving in circles, the rooms have.

Rennes: No more talking. No more guessing. Don't even think about nothing that's not right in front of you. That's the real challenge. You've gotta save yourselves from yourselves.

Holloway: What have we come to? It's so much worse than I thought.
Worth: Not really. Just more pathetic.

Revealing mistake: When they get Renn back into the room after he has been shot in the face with something acid-like, the smoke comes from behind his head. Not his face.

Question: Anyone who has the Cube DVD, is it really true that if you put the DVD disc upside down in your player, that there is another film on it?

Chosen answer: Having just tried it with my copy (Region 1), no, it doesn't appear to be true.

Answer: I have heard that you can often have a short film by the same director on the other side of the DVD.

Simple way to tell is if there's printing on top. For a DVD to be double sided, both sides will have the same blank shiny surface. Any writing, like the name of the film, etc. will render the top level unreadable.
