I also care that the public are getting their 12 dollars' worth when they go to a movie, and that they're not coming out not wanting to ever see a movie with me in it again. I don't care what people think of me as a person, but I do care what people think of my work, and whether I'm investing enough into it. [Empire magazine, October 2006].
A mate of mine told me recently, 'It's the first time I've seen you work, Worthington.' I thought that was quite funny, but he was right. [Empire magazine, October 2006]
[on Avatar] It's gotta hell of a lotta hype, I read all what was said yesterday about the trailer. I can see their point, but as I said, it's not meant to be built for an Apple Mac, it's built for IMAX, it's built for 3D, that's what he's designed it for. He's designed it to bring people back to the cinema. It's interesting that he's released that trailer and the next day, he shows it on IMAX. It's one extreme to the other. We get the criticism and then we get the rave reviews of what it really looks like in its own formula. That's obviously going to get people to think and go, "Damn right! I'm going to go and see this at the cinema". Jim has always said to me that he wants to bring people back to the movies, and he's a smart enough man for that to be tactical.
[on his role in Clash of the Titans] Oh I want to do it exactly the same. That guy's gonna come after me... no, I had a take on Perseus that I said to Louie and he went with it and the studio kind of liked my take, and we'll see if it works.
[on the Terminator Franchise] Well, I reacquainted myself with the movies, obviously, before we started, but I would have been actually 15 or something when Terminator 2 came out. So you remember the liquid man, of course, and that was revolutionary for this time, going through the helicopter and all that. But I think what they do is they showcase how good a storyteller Jim is.
I didn't set out to be famous; if I'd wanted that, I would have gone on Big Brother.
[on accepting the role of a conflicted man in Last Night] There was things in it that I've kind of done. I've been every single one of these people. So I kind of went 'Count me in'. I've been cheated on, I've been tempted. I've lost love. I've tried to reclaim a lost love and didn't know how to do it. I've been every single one of them, yeah.
[on refusing to discuss injuries he sustained making Wrath of the Titans] I don't like talking about that. I've got mates who play rugby and they think I'm a pussy actor.

Dr. Grace Augustine: So you just figured you'd come here, to the most hostile environment known to men, with no training of any kind, and see how it went? What was going through your head? Jake Sully: Maybe I was sick of doctors telling me what I couldn't do.

Jake Sully: Look, I know you probably don't understand this... [Neytiri ignores him and speaks Na'vi] Jake Sully: Thank you. [Neytiri speaks Na'vi] Jake Sully: That was pretty impressive.

Quaritch: [a short time later] You let me down son! So, you find yourself some local tail, and you just completely forget what team you're playin' for?
Jake Sully: [on video log] They're not gonna give up their home. They're not gonna make a deal. [scoffs] Jake Sully: For-for what? A light beer and blue jeans? There's nothing that we have that they want. Everything they sent me out here to do is a waste of time. They're never gonna leave Hometree.
Jake Sully: I see you, Brother... thank you. [kills prey] Jake Sully: Your spirit will now be with Eywa, but your body will remain for The People.
Jake Sully: [to his ikran on their first flight] Shut up and fly straight!
Jake Sully: Give it up, Quaritch! It's all over. Col. Quaritch: [from inside the Amp suit] Nothin's over while I'm breathin'. Jake Sully: I kinda hoped you'd say that.
Moat: It is hard to fill a cup that is already full. Jake Sully: My cup is empty. Trust me. Just ask Dr. Augustine. I'm no scientist. Moat: Then what are you? Jake Sully: I was a marine. A warrior... of the uh... Jarhead Clan.
Jake Sully: [Narrating] Outcast. Betrayer. Alien. I was in the place the eye does not see. I needed their help. And they needed mine. But to ever face them again, I was gonna have to take it to a whole new level.
Jake Sully: [Narrating] The way I had it figured, Toruk's the baddest cat in the sky. Nothing attacks him. So why would he ever look up? That was just a theory.
Neytiri: I'm with you now, Jake. We are mated for life. Jake Sully: [to himself] What the hell are you doin', Jake?

Jake Sully: [Narrating] In cryo, you don't dream at all. It doesn't *feel* like six years - more like a fifth of Tequila and an ass kicking. Tommy was a scientist, not me. He was the one who wanted to get shot light years out in space to find the answers. Jake Sully: Are we there yet? Cryo Vault Med Tech: Yeah, we're there sunshine... We're there. [Scene changes to morgue] Suit #2: It's about your brother... Jake Sully: [Narrating] So a week before he was about to ship out... a guy with a gun ends his journey... for the paper in his wallet. Cryo Vault Med Tech: You've been in cryo for five years, nine months and twenty-two days. You will be hungry, you will be weak. If you feel nausea, please use the...

Jake Sully: [Narrating] Sooner or later, though, you always have to wake up.
Jake Sully: I became a Marine for the hardship. Told myself that I can pass any test a man can pass. All I ever wanted was a single thing worth fighting for.
Col. Quaritch: Son, I take care of my own. You get me what I need, I make sure that when you rotate home you get your legs back, your real legs. Jake Sully: That sounds real good sir.
Jake Sully: You wanted to see me, Colonel? Col. Quaritch: This low gravity'll make you soft. And when you get soft, Pandora will eat you and shit you out dead with zero warning. I read your file, Corporal. Venezuela, that was some mean bush. Nothin' like that here, though. You got some heart kid, showin' up here. Jake Sully: Figured it was just another hellhole.
Jake Sully: All I ever wanted was a single thing worth fighting for.
Jake Sully: [as Jake pleads for Eywa's help in attacking the "Sky People"] If Grace is there with you - look in her memories - she can show you the world we come from. There's no green there. They killed their Mother, and they're gonna do the same here. More Sky People are gonna come. They're gonna come like a rain that never ends. Unless we stop them. They chose me for something. I will stand and fight. You know I will. But I need a little help here. Neytiri: Our great mother does not take sides, Jake; she protects the balance of life. Jake Sully: It was worth a try.
Jake Sully: You have to leave, or you're gonna die! Moat: Are you certain of this? Jake Sully: Look, they sent me here, to learn your ways, so one day I could bring this message, and that you would believe it. Neytiri: What are you saying, Jake? You knew this would happen? Jake Sully: Yes. Look, at first, it was just orders, and then, everything changed. Okay? I fell in love. I fell in love with the - with the forest, with the Omaticaya people... with you... with you... Neytiri: [interrupting him] I trusted you... Jake Sully: [continuing what he was saying] - with you. Neytiri: [getting upset] I trusted you! Jake Sully: [trying to calm her] Trust me, now. Please. Neytiri: You will never be one of The People! Neytiri: He tried to stop them! Jake Sully: Neytiri, please. [Neytiri says something in Na'vi and leaves]

Jake Sully: [Narrating] I was a stone cold aerial hunter, death from above. Only problem is, you're not the only one.
Dr. Grace Augustine: Just relax and let your mind go blank. That shouldn't be too hard for you. Jake Sully: Kiss the darkest part of my lily white... [gets cut off]
Jake Sully: If it ain't raining, we ain't training.
Neytiri: Now you choose your ikran. This you must feel inside. If he also chooses you, move quick like I showed. You will have one chance, Jake. Jake Sully: How will I know if he chooses me? Neytiri: He will try to kill you. Jake Sully: [deadpan] Outstanding.
Jake Sully: [in unfinished scene, DVD bonus material; about the Na'vi] They didn't even have a word for 'lie'.
Jake Sully: [collector's extended cut] I became a marine for the hardship, to be hammered on the anvil of life. I told myself I can pass any test a man can pass.
Jake Sully: [collector's extended cut] You want a fair deal? You're on the wrong planet. The strong prey on the weak, it's just the way things are. And nobody does a damned thing.
Moat: Why did you come to us? Jake Sully: I came to learn. Moat: We have tried to teach other sky people, it is hard to fill a cup which is already full. Jake Sully: My cup is empty, trust me. Just ask doctor Augustine, I'm no scientist. Moat: What are you? Jake Sully: I was a marine, a, er, a warrior of the eh, Jarhead clan.
Jake Sully: I was a warrior who dreamed he could bring peace. Sooner or later, though, you always wake up.
Jake Sully: Who's got a date with the chief's daughter?
Jake Sully: I'm just saying if you love your little forest friends, then why not just let them kill my ass? Neytiri: Why save you? Jake Sully: Yeah, why save me, what's the thinking? Neytiri: You have a strong heart, no fear. But stupid! Like baby, don't know what to do.

Io: My name is Io, Perseus. Perseus: And how do you know me? Io: I've watched you all your life. I guided you to your family.
Perseus: My father was killed by a god. My mother, sister, everyone I loved was killed by a god. I mend nets. Not wield a sword.
Perseus: I know we're all afraid. But my father told me: someday, someone was gonna have take a stand. Someday, someone was gonna have to say enough! This could be that day. Trust your senses. And don't look this bitch in the eye.
Perseus: [sparring with Io] Try not to enjoy this so much. Io: I'm trying to help you live.
Perseus: [picking up a toy owl] What is this? Solon: Just leave it!
Spyros: Just like the day you came to me. The storm brought me right to you. I know you have questions, son. I wish I had the answers. Perseus: I have everything I need. Right here.
[Perseus draws his divine sword at Hades] Hades: I'm a god! I will live forever! Perseus: But not here. [hurls the sword at Hades, and a lightning bolt from Zeus hits Hades at the same time]
Andromeda: [after Perseus rescues Andromeda] The boats are coming for us. Perseus: For you, not for me. Andromeda: You won't stay, will you? Perseus, Argos needs a ruler! Perseus: I cannot be a king. I serve you better as a man.
Andromeda: What's your name? Perseus: Perseus. Andromeda: Take this. Please, drink. [Andromeda holds out a goblet of wine to Perseus, who reaches to take it] Draco: [slaps the goblet away] Hands off! Cassiopeia: Enough! Kepheus: Our daughter the missionary!
[after being attacked by Calibos] Solon: Who was that? Perseus: I don't know. Let's ask him.

Barry Ryan: Hey, Darcy. You know much about Yanks? Darcy: Yeah. In Vietnam, they were fuckin' everywhere and fuckin' everythink. Barry Ryan: Then that'd make you a fuckin' expert.

Monster: I came here to help you... Caroline: No, you didn't. Monster: ...to help you understand. Caroline: You came here 'cause you think you're gonna be next. You came here to steer me, okay? If you wanna help me, if you don't wanna get nailed to the ceiling or run over by a train, you need to break free from your buddies and tell me something I don't know about John Wharton. 'Cause I can't read him. Tell me something I don't know. Monster: [pauses] Two years ago, we arrested Edgar Rios in Juarez. [a flashback of the team doing the operation runs simultanously with Monster's story] Monster: He was an old school drug lord. Ran all their operations. It was a big deal. We handed him over to the Mexicans, when some brod pulls her shit and dons him. The cartel didn't want him debriefed by our intel people. Problem solved. But they had a bigger problem. They wanted the man who could get the man that nobody can get. John gets a call from the bad guys. They snatched his wife and kid right at his house. They were holding them in Juarez. They make him an offer: Surrender yourself to the cartel, and your family lives. John's family is everything. John was married forever. His son, Jacob, was his best friend. Jacob Wharton: [in the flashback, while getting car keys from his father] Love you, Dad. Monster: [narrating] They tortured Karen and Jacob to death. There's a video. Evil shit. Karen Wharton: [in the flashback] No! No! No...! Monster: [narrating] They mailed the pieces of them to his home for weeks. So John went down there. Alone. Hunting the man who killed his wife. Grinder: [in the flashback] John, we're coming in. Monster: [narrating] He didn't find him. Grinder: [in the flashback] We're here to bring you back home. This isn't gonna bring them back. Come on, let's go home. Monster: [narrating] John is obsessed with finding his wife's killer. It's like a cancer in his soul. [the flashback ends] Monster: Caroline... we lost John when they died.
Monster: Breach, that's not them. Sugar: It's not the Kaibeles? Lizzy: What do you mean? What are you talking about? Sugar: You mean we killed six motherfuckers, and it ain't them?

Marcus Wright: [Kyle is eating something] What is that? Kyle Reese: Two day old coyote. It's better than three day old coyote.
Marcus Wright: If you're going to point a gun, you'd better be ready to pull the trigger. Kyle Reese: [later, repeating Marcus] If you're going to point a gun, you'd better be ready to pull the trigger.
Kyle Reese: [a car radio suddenly starts and Kyle hears music for the first time] What is that? Marcus Wright: Something my brother used to listen to.
[after Marcus helps John defeat the Hydrobots, John Connor turns and points his gun at him] John Connor: They know what you are, even if you don't. Marcus Wright: Enough! That gun ain't gonna stop shit! John Connor: Nobody's shot you in the heart, and I see that thing beating a mile a minute! Marcus Wright: [Suddenly cautious] Kyle Reese. He's in Skynet. You do that, he's dead. I can get you in. John Connor: [pauses] How? [Marcus steps forward into the light. His face is half-mangled, revealing a metal skull underneath] Marcus Wright: Look at me. John Connor: That's why I don't trust you. Marcus Wright: I'm the only hope you have. [pauses] Marcus Wright: I need to find who did this to me. So do you.
[last lines] Marcus Wright: [thinking] What is it that makes us human? It's not something you can program. You can't put it into a chip. It's the strength of the human heart. The difference between us and machines. John Connor: [pause] [continues thinking] John Connor: There is a storm on the horizon. A time of hardship and pain. This battle has been won, but the war against the machines races on. Skynet's global network remains strong, but we will not quit, until all of it is destroyed. This is John Connor. There is no fate, but what we make.
Dr. Serena Kogan: Welcome home, Marcus. We knew you'd be back. After all, it was programmed in you. Oh, and you executed that programming beautifully. Marcus Wright: What am I? Dr. Serena Kogan: You are an infiltration prototype. The only one of your kind. Advanced Cyberdyne's work, we resurrected you, amended it. Marcus Wright: You're dead. Dr. Serena Kogan: Calculations confirm Serena Kogan is the [transforms into John Connor] John Connor: easiest for you to process. We can [transforms into Kyle Reese] Kyle Reese: be others if you like. Marcus, what else could you be... if not machine? [transforms back into Serena Kogan] Marcus Wright: A man. Dr. Serena Kogan: The human condition no longer applies to you. Accept what you already know. That you were made to serve a purpose. To achieve what no other machine has been able to do. To infiltrate, find a target and then bring that target home to us. [flashback recording from Marcus' perspective] John Connor: We've been at war since before either of us even existed. You tried to kill my mother, Sarah Connor. Dr. Serena Kogan: In times of desperation, people will believe what they want to believe. And so, we gave them what they wanted to believe. A trick in the form of signal the Resistance thought would win the war. And they were right, it will end this war. Except that it is the Resistance that will be destroyed. Not, Skynet. Our best machines have failed time again to complete a mission. Something was missing. We had to think, radically. And so we made you. We created the perfect infiltration unit. You, Marcus. You did what Skynet has failed to do for so many years. You killed John Connor. Don't fight, Marcus. Remember what you are. Marcus Wright: I know what I am. [rips out computer chip, crumbles] Marcus Wright: I'm better this way. Dr. Serena Kogan: You will not be given a second chance. You cannot save John Connor. Marcus Wright: Watch me.

[stuck in a labyrinth] Perseus: We can't do this... Agenor: [smacks him] Two days ago, I was locked up in a cell trying, I admit, to escape being the son of Poseidon! Look at me now: in the bowels of Tartarus, saving the universe. Just follow the Navigator.
Helius: It'll be nice to be back home. A fisherman doesn't sound so bad... Perseus: There's no going home for us.
