The Wolfman
Movie Quote Quiz

Gwen Conliffe: It is said, there is no sin in killing a beast, only in killing a man. But where does one begin and the other end?

Sir John Talbot: I don't think they'll kill you, Lawrence. But they will blame you. The beast will have its day. The beast will out.

Sir John Talbot: I realize now that it was a mistake to lock up the beast. Don't you think so, Lawrence? I should have let it run free. Kill or be killed.

Dr. Hoenneger: Now, we are all aware that Mr. Talbot has suffered quite traumatic personal experiences. He witnessed his mother's self mutilations. His young mind, unable to accept it, created a fantastical truth, that his father is to blame. That his father is literally a monster. [Turns to Lawrence.] But, your father is not a werewolf. You were not bitten by a werewolf. You will not become a werewolf, any more than I will sprout wings and fly out of that window.

[After shooting the head off a statue.]
Sir John Talbot: I'm sorry, Colonel. I meant to shoot you. Sadly, I'm not quite the marksman I used to be... I must be getting old.

Sir John Talbot: Terrible things Lawrence, you've done terrible things.

Sir John Talbot: Lo and behold, the prodigal son returns.
Lawrence Talbot: Hello father.

Lawrence Talbot: I am what they say I am... I'm a monster.

Lawrence Talbot: I will kill all of you!

Lawrence Talbot: I get your implication, and resent it. You're aware of my personal history, as I believe I'm aware of yours. Weren't you in charge of the ripper case a couple of years back?
Abberline: You're a direct man. So I'll be equally direct with you. I am not your enemy, Mr. Talbot. You've been seen as Hamlet, Macbeth, Richard III, all with that same face. A prudent man would ask who else might be living inside that head of yours?

Maleva: Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms, and the autumn moon is bright.

Other mistake: When Lawrence is looking at his wound in the mirror, it has slightly healed. Later, when Sir John visits Lawrence in the asylum, he shows the bite mark he got from the feral child to Lawrence. Since Sir John is also a werewolf, the bite mark should not be there.
