The Giver: Memories are not just about the past. They determine our future. You can change things. You can make things better.
Dr. Mark Powell: 26:16 Let me tell you something, Mark. You humans. Most of you subscribe to this policy of an eye for an eye. A life for a life, which is known throughout the universe for its stupidity. Even your Buddha and your Christ had quite a different vision. But nobody has paid much attention to them, not even the Buddhists or the Christians. Sometimes, it's hard to imagine how you've made it this far.
Prot: You know what I've learned about your planet? There's enough life on Earth to fill 50 planets. Plants, animals, people, fungi, viruses, all jostling to find their place, bouncing off each other, feeding off each other. Connected.
Dr. Mark Powell: You don't have that kind of connection on K-PAX?
Prot: Nobody wants, nobody needs. On K-PAX, when I'm gone, nobody misses me. There would be no reason to. And yet I sense that when I leave here... I will be missed. Yes. Strange feeling.
Dr. Mark Powell: Oh, 6:15 was late. Didn't leave the station till 6:30. Should have caught the nearest beam of light.
Jack Prescott: There is a girl out there who might be running for her life from some gigantic turned-on ape.
Carnahan: If he's not gonna eat her, why did he take her?
Jack Prescott: Apes are highly territorial. He's probably gonna take her back to his turf.
Carnahan: What for? Joe and the guys, uh, said that you said the ape was gonna marry her. Is that some kinda joke or did you really mean his huge.
Jack Prescott: I don't know, Carnahan! Look, I'm just as ignorant about this as you are, so quit askin' me so many dumb questions, will ya?
Gregory Larkin: But I love the old Rose! The one with no makeup and baggy clothes who loves 'the perfect bite'! She eats carrots now, isn't that tragic?
