The Machinist
Movie Quote Quiz

Ivan: Oh, no. You look like you seen a ghost.
Trevor Reznik: Funny you should say that. The guys at work don't think you exist.
Ivan: That's why I can't get a raise.

Ivan: Looks like rain. Radio says there's a storm comin' in.
Trevor Reznik: Guess they're right.
Ivan: If you ask me, it's already here.

DMV Clerk: I'm sorry, sir, but we don't provide motorist information to the general public.
Trevor Reznik: I'm not just a member of the general public. This guy's a friend of mine.
DMV Clerk: But you don't know your friend's address?
Trevor Reznik: We just met. I don't know him that well.
DMV Clerk: Sir, this is the DMV, not a dating service.

Stevie: Are you okay?
Trevor Reznik: Don't I look okay?
Stevie: If you were any thinner, you wouldn't exist.

Marie: Trevor, is someone chasing you?
Trevor Reznik: Not yet. But they will when they find out who I am.

Factual error: When Trevor is struck by the VW Beetle, not only is he not thrown forward along the Beetle's path, he actually lands well behind the point of impact - more than half the length of the parked van. He doesn't bounce off another object that changes his direction. He's just thrown up, then falls rearward above the car. (01:08:35)

Trivia: When Trevor is following Ivan through the tunnel, he reads the number plate out as 743 CRN on the red Firebird. When the shot changes to Trevor's pickup, the number plate reads NRC 347. Could this be a clue to a mirror image twist?
