Prometheus (2012 film) Quotes

Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland

  • (Guy Pearce) "Hello, friends. My name is Peter Weyland. I am your employer. I am recording this, 22 June, 2091. And if you're watching it, you have reached your destination. And I am long dead. May I rest in peace. There's a man sitting with you today. His name is David. And he is the closest thing to a son I will ever have. Unfortunately, he is not human. He will never grow old and he will never die. And yet he is unable to appreciate these remarkable gifts for that would require the one thing that David will never have. A soul. I have spent my entire lifetime contemplating the questions: Where do we come from? What is our purpose? What happens when we die? And I have finally found two people who convinced me they're on the verge of answering them. Doctors Holloway and Shaw, if you would please stand. As far as you're concerned, they're in charge. The Titan Prometheus wanted to give mankind equal footing with the gods and for that, he was cast from Olympus. Well, my friends, the time has finally come for his return. Doctors, please. The floor is yours."
  • (Guy Pearce) "100,000 BC: stone tools. 4,000 BC: the wheel. 900 AD: gunpowder; bit of a game changer, that one. 19th century: eureka, the lightbulb. 20th century: the automobile, television, nuclear weapons, spacecrafts, Internet. 21st century: biotech, nanotech, fusion and fission and M theory; and THAT, was just the first decade. We are now three months into the year of our Lord, 2023. At this moment of our civilization, we can create cybernetic individuals, who in just a few short years will be completely indistinguishable from us. Which leads to an obvious conclusion: WE are the gods now."
  • (Guy Pearce) "To those of you who know me: you will be aware by now that my ambition is unlimited. You know that I will settle for nothing short of greatness, or I will die trying. To those of you who do not yet know me: allow me to introduce myself. My name is Peter Weyland, and if you'll indulge me, I'd like to change the world."
  • (Guy Pearce) "There's nothing."
  • (Michael Fassbender) "I know. Have a good journey, Mr. Weyland."
  • (Guy Pearce) "T.E. Lawrence, eponymously of Arabia but very much an Englishman, favoured pinching a burning match between his fingers to put it out. When asked by his colleague William Potter to reveal his trick, how is it he effectively extinguished the flame without hurting himself whatsoever, Lawrence just smiled and said, "The trick, Potter, is not minding it hurts." The fire that danced at the end of that match was a gift from the Titan Prometheus, a gift that he stole from the gods. When Prometheus was caught and brought to justice for his theft, the gods, well, you might say they overreacted a little. The poor man was tied to a rock, as an eagle ripped through his belly and ate his liver over and over, day after day, ad infinitum. All because he gave us fire. Our first true piece of technology, fire --"
  • (Guy Pearce) "There's nothing to learn."
  • (Michael Fassbender) "I understand, Mr. Weyland. Have a safe journey."

Charlize Theron as Meredith Vickers

  • (Charlize Theron) "If you're really going down there, you're going to die."
  • (Guy Pearce) "Very negative way of looking at things. Exactly why you should have stayed at home."
  • (Charlize Theron) "Did you really think I was gonna sit in a boardroom for years arguing over who was in charge while you go look for some miracle on some godforsaken rock in the middle of space? A king has his reign, and then he dies. It's inevitable. That is natural order of things."
  • (Charlize Theron) "Weyland found you impressive enough to fund this mission. But I'm fairly certain your Engineers are nothing but scribblings of savages living in dirty little caves. But let's say I'm wrong, and you do find these beings down there, you won't engage them, you won't talk to them. You will do nothing but report back to me."
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "Um, Miss Vickers, is there an agenda that you're not telling us about?"
  • (Charlize Theron) "My company paid a trillion dollars to find this place and to bring you here. Had you raised the monies yourself, Mr. Holloway, we'd happily be pursuing your agenda. But you didn't. And that makes you an employee."
  • (Charlize Theron) "Take us home."
  • (Noomi Rapace) "If we don't stop it, there won't be any home to go back to."
  • (Charlize Theron) "Good morning. I am Meredith Vickers, and it is my job to make sure you do yours."
  • (Charlize Theron) "Son of a bitch. You cut me off."
  • (Charlize Theron) "How long?"
  • (Michael Fassbender) "2 years, 4 months, 18 days, 36 hours, 15 minutes."
  • (Charlize Theron) "Any casualties?"
  • (Michael Fassbender) "Casualties, ma'am?"
  • (Charlize Theron) "Has anyone died?"
  • (Michael Fassbender) "No, ma'am. Everyone is fine."
  • (Charlize Theron) "Well, then wake them up."

Noomi Rapace as Elizabeth Shaw

  • (Noomi Rapace) "I think they want us to come and find them."
  • (Noomi Rapace) "Final report of the vessel Prometheus. The ship and her entire crew are gone. If you're receiving this transmission, make no attempt to come to its point of origin. There is only death here now, and I'm leaving it behind. It is New Year's Day, the year of our Lord, 2094. My name is Elisabeth Shaw, last survivor of the Prometheus. And I am still searching."
  • (Noomi Rapace) "What are you doing David?"
  • (Michael Fassbender) "I'm attempting to open the door"
  • (Noomi Rapace) "Wait, we don't know what's on the other side"
  • (Michael Fassbender) "Oops. Sorry."
  • (Noomi Rapace) "But you don't understand. You don't know. This place isn't what we thought it was. They aren't what we thought they were. I was wrong. We were so wrong. Charlie, Dr. Holloway's dead. We must leave."
  • (Guy Pearce) "And what would Charlie do now that we're so close to answering the most meaningful questions ever asked by mankind? Hm? How can you leave without knowing what they are? Or have you lost your faith, Shaw?"
  • (Noomi Rapace) "What happens when Weyland is not around to program you anymore?"
  • (Michael Fassbender) "I suppose I'll be free."
  • (Noomi Rapace) "You want that?"
  • (Michael Fassbender) ""Want"? Not a concept I'm familiar with. That being said, doesn't everyone want their parents dead?"
  • (Noomi Rapace) "I didn't."

Logan Marshall-Green as Charlie Holloway

  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "David, why are you wearing a suit, man?"
  • (Michael Fassbender) "I beg your pardon?"
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "You don't breathe, remember? So why wear a suit?"
  • (Michael Fassbender) "I was designed like this because you are more comfortable interacting with your own kind. If I didn't wear a suit, it would defeat the purpose."
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "They're making you guys pretty close, huh?"
  • (Michael Fassbender) "Not too close, I hope."
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "Captain, would you please tell the survey to suit up and meet us in the airlock."
  • (Idris Elba) "There's only six hours left of daylight. Why don't you leave it till the morning."
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "No, no, no. It's Christmas, captain, and I want to open my presents."
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "These are images of archaeological digs from all over the earth."
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "That's Egyptian, Mayan, Sumerian, Babylonian. That's Hawaiian at the end there and Mesopotamian. Now this one here is our most recent discovery, it's a thirty five thousand year old cave painting from the Isle of Skye in Scotland. These are ancient civilizations, they were separated by centuries, they shared no contact with one another, and yet --"
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "The same pictogram, showing men worshipping giant beings pointing to the stars was discovered at every last one of them. The only galactic system that matched, was so far from Earth, that there's no way that these primitive ancient civilizations could have possibly known about it. But it just so happens, that system has a sun, a lot like ours. And based on our long range scans, there seemed to be a planet. Just one planet with the moon, capable of sustaining life, and we arrived there this morning."
  • (Sean Harris) "So you're saying we're here because of a map you two kids found in a cave, is that right?"
  • (Noomi Rapace) "No."
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "Yeah. Um --"
  • (Noomi Rapace) "No. Not a map. An invitation."
  • (Sean Harris) "From whom?"
  • (Noomi Rapace) "We call them Engineers."
  • (Sean Harris) "Engineers? Do you mind, um, telling us what they engineered?"
  • (Noomi Rapace) "They engineered us."
  • (Sean Harris) "Bulls***."
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "There."
  • (Idris Elba) "Dr. Holloway, why don't you take a seat."
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "Right there. God does not build in straight lines."
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "What we hoped to achieve was to meet our makers. To get answers. Why they even made us in the first place."
  • (Michael Fassbender) "Why do you think your people made me?"
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "We made you because we could."
  • (Michael Fassbender) "Can you imagine how disappointing it would be for you to hear the same thing from your creator?"
  • (Logan Marshall-Green) "I guess it's good you can't be disappointed."

Idris Elba as Janek

  • (Idris Elba) "Prometheus has landed."
  • (Idris Elba) "You know, if you wanna get laid, you really don't have to pretend to be interested in the pyramid scan. I mean, you could just say, "Hey, I'm trying to get laid." Heh."
  • (Charlize Theron) "I could. I could say that, right? But then it wouldn't make sense why I would fly myself half a billion miles from every man on Earth if I wanted to get laid, would it?"
  • (Idris Elba) "Hey, uh, Vickers. Hey, Vickers. I was wondering -- Are you a robot?"
  • (Charlize Theron) "My room. Ten minutes."
  • (Idris Elba) "Just got a ping about one click west of you."
  • (Rafe Spall) "What do you mean "a ping"?"
  • (Idris Elba) "Well, whatever that probe is picking up, it's not dead. It's reading a life form."
  • (Sean Harris) "What?"
  • (Rafe Spall) "Okay, what you mean, "a life form"?"
  • (Sean Harris) "Is it; Is it moving?"
  • (Idris Elba) "No, I don't think so."
  • (Sean Harris) "No, Captain, you're obviously not seeing what we're seeing down here. But if you were, you wouldn't be talking about a bloody ping, yeah?"
  • (Idris Elba) "I know, boys. Your signal has been coming in sporadically since the storm hit."
  • (Sean Harris) "That's no good to us down here, Captain. Is it; Is it moving? Are these things moving?"
  • (Idris Elba) "No. No, it just disappeared, actually. Must be a glitch."
  • (Rafe Spall) "What do you mean, "a glitch"?"
  • (Idris Elba) "All right, boys. Sleep tight. Try not to bugger each other."
  • (Rafe Spall) "Captain, what do you mean, "a glitch"?"
  • (Sean Harris) "Millburn. What does he mean? Wait. Now, he said; He said one click west, yeah?"
  • (Rafe Spall) "Yeah."
  • (Sean Harris) "Now, we -- We don't want to check that out, do we, huh?"
  • (Rafe Spall) "s***, no."
  • (Sean Harris) "Where are we gonna go?"
  • (Rafe Spall) "East."
  • (Sean Harris) "Yeah, east."
  • (Rafe Spall) "A f***ing glitch, man. "Pings, glitch, life form." What the f***?"
  • (Idris Elba) "Whatever that probe is picking up, it's a lifeform."
  • (Idris Elba) "Gentlemen, I can handle this myself. Feel free to join Miss Vickers."
  • (Ravel) "All due respect, captain, you're a s*** pilot and you're gonna need all the help you can get."
  • (Idris Elba) "Where the hell you going, doc? You know what this place is? Those Engineers, this ain't their home. It's an installation. Maybe even military. They put it out here in the middle of nowhere because they're not stupid enough to make weapons of mass destruction on their own doorstep. That's what all that s*** is in those vases. They made it here. It got out, turned on them. The end. It's time for us to go home."
  • (Noomi Rapace) "One of them is still alive. Don't you want to know what they have to say?"
  • (Idris Elba) "I don't care."
  • (Noomi Rapace) "Right. All you do is fly the ship."
  • (Idris Elba) "That's right."
  • (Noomi Rapace) "But you must care about something, captain. If you didn't, why are you here?"
  • (Idris Elba) "How about this? No matter what happens down there, I can't bring none of that s*** back home with us. Can't let it happen. And I'll do whatever I have to to see that it doesn't."
  • (Noomi Rapace) "Make sure you do, captain."

Michael Fassbender as David

  • (Michael Fassbender) "Emotional."
  • (Unnamed) "David, what makes you sad?"
  • (Michael Fassbender) "War, poverty, cruelty, unneccessary violence. I understand human emotions, although I do not feel them myself. This allows me to be more efficient and capable, and makes it easier for my human counterparts to interact with me."
  • (Michael Fassbender) "How far would you go to get your answers?"
  • (Michael Fassbender) "A superior species, no doubt. The hypersleep chambers will impress, I trust."
