The Fly (1986 film) Quotes

Jeff Goldblum as Seth Brundle

  • (Jeff Goldblum) "You have to leave now, and never come back here. Have you ever heard of insect politics? Neither have I. Insects -- don't have politics. They're very -- brutal. No compassion, no compromise. We can't trust the insect. I'd like to become the first -- insect politician. Y'see, I'd like to, but -- I'm afraid, uh --"
  • (Geena Davis) "I don't know what you're trying to say."
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "I'm saying -- I'm saying I; I'm an insect who dreamt he was a man and loved it. But now the dream is over -- and the insect is awake."
  • (Geena Davis) "No. no, Seth --"
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "I'm saying -- I'll hurt you if you stay."
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "I will say now, however objectively, that human teleportation, molecular decimation, breakdown, reformation, is inherently purging."
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "Help me. Help me be human."
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "Now, you tell me. Am I different somehow? Is it live or is it Memorex?"
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "What's there to take? The disease has just revealed its purpose. We don't have to worry about contagion anymore -- I know what the disease wants."
  • (Geena Davis) "What does the disease want?"
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "It wants to -- turn me into something else. That's not too terrible is it? Most people would give anything to be turned into something else."
  • (Geena Davis) "Turned into what?"
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "Whaddaya think? A fly. Am I becoming a hundred-and-eighty-five-pound fly? No, I'm becoming something that never existed before. I'm becoming -- Brundlefly. Don't you think that's worth a Nobel Prize or two?"
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "Oh, no. What's happening to me? Am I dying?"
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "You're afraid to dive into the plasma pool, aren't you? You're afraid to be destroyed and recreated, aren't you? I'll bet you think that you woke me up about the flesh, don't you? But you only know society's straight line about the flesh. You can't penetrate beyond society's sick, gray, fear of the flesh. Drink deep, or taste not, the plasma spring. Y'see what I'm saying? And I'm not just talking about sex and penetration. I'm talking about penetration beyond the veil of the flesh. A deep penetrating dive into the plasma pool."
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "Help me. Please -- help me."
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "How does Brundlefly eat? Well, he found out the hard and painful way that he eats very much the way a fly eats. His teeth are now useless, because although he can chew up solid food, he can't digest them. Solid food hurts. So like a fly, Brundlefly breaks down solids with a corrosive enzyme, playfully called "vomit drop". He regurgitates on his food, it liquifies, and then he sucks it back up. Ready for a demonstration, kids? Here goes --"
  • (John Getz) "Oh my God."
  • (John Getz) "My God."
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "It's not ready yet."

  • (Geena Davis) "Yeah?"
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "Yeah."
  • (Geena Davis) "Which is?"
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "I can only teleport inanimate objects."
  • (Geena Davis) "Well, what happens when you try to teleport living things?"
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "Not while we're eating."
  • (Geena Davis) "It can't be worse than this."
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "My teeth have begun to fall out. The medicine cabinet is now the Brundle Museum of Natural History. You wanna see what else is in it?"
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "I farm bits and pieces out to the guys who are much more brilliant than I am. I say, "build me a laser", this. "Design me a molecular analyzer", that. They do, and I just stick 'em together. But, none of them know what the project really is. So --"
  • (Geena Davis) "Wow. And, uh, the money? Bartok Science Industries Financed this?"
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "Hmm-mmm -- But they leave me alone, 'cause I'm not expensive. And they know they'll end up owning it, whatever it is."

  • (Jeff Goldblum) "Mmm-hmm."
  • (Geena Davis) "So, what have we proved?"
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "The computer is giving us its interpretation -- of a steak. It's, uh translating it for us; it's rethinking it, rather than reproducing it, and something is getting lost in the translation."
  • (Geena Davis) "Me -- I'm lost."
  • (Jeff Goldblum) "The flesh. It should make the computer, uh crazy. Like those old ladies pinching babies. But it doesn't; not yet because I haven't taught the computer to be made crazy by the --"

  • (Jeff Goldblum) "I think it turned the baboon inside-out."
