City of Ember
Movie Quote Quiz

Lina Mayfleet: Lizzie! Where'd you get that food?
Lizzie Bisco: All right. I got it from my boyfriend.
Lina Mayfleet: You don't have a boyfriend.
Lizzie Bisco: It's not official, but there's this guy who really likes me. He explores the storerooms, especially the ones on the edges. They're marked empty in the ledger, but they're not all empty. I'll give you a bite if you promise not to tell.

Doon Harrow: The Generator's our only source of power. If it goes, we all go.
Loris Harrow: That's dramatic.
Doon Harrow: Dad, this place is falling apart. I will not sit around while Ember collapses. I am getting in to that generator, whatever it takes.

Loris Harrow: The main thing is, pay attention. Pay close attention to everything, everything you see. Notice what no-one else notices, and you'll know what no-one else knows. What you get is what you get. What you do with what you get, that's more the point.

Loris Harrow: What can you do about it? Hmm? What can you do about it?

Continuity mistake: In the part when Lina and Doon are looking at The Book of Ember, they open it to a few pages in. But in a later shot, it shows they are near the middle of the book.

Chosen answer: The light from the sky would have been back-lit by the lights from the city, a bit like how we can't see the stars at night because the sun is too bright. If there were a power failure at noon perhaps the sky could have been seen, however.
