The Happening (2008 film) Quotes

Mark Wahlberg as Elliot Moore

  • (Mark Wahlberg) "Hello? My name is Elliot Moore. Just want to talk in a very positive manner, giving off good vibes. We're just here to use the bathroom, and then we're just going to leave. I hope that's OK."
  • (Mark Wahlberg) "Plastic. I'm talking to a plastic plant."
  • (Mark Wahlberg) "I'm still doing it."
  • (Mark Wahlberg) "What's wrong?"
  • (Zooey Deschanel) "Okay, I was going to tell you, okay? There was this guy Joey. His name is Joey; he's at work. We went out and we had dessert; I went out and had dessert with him when I told you I worked late and I didn't work late and I'm feeling really guilty in case we're gonna die. I just wanted you to know that."
  • (Mark Wahlberg) "You -- lied to me?"
  • (Mark Wahlberg) "You're not interested in what happened to the bees?"
  • (Mark Wahlberg) "You should be more interested in science, Jake. You know why? Because your face is perfect. The problem is, your face is perfect at 15. Now if you were interested in science, you would know facts like the human nose and ears grow a fraction of an inch each year. So a perfect balance of features now might not look so perfect five years from now, and might look down right whack ten years from now."
  • (Mark Wahlberg) "Come on, buddy. Take an interest in science. What could be the reason bees have vanished?"
  • (Robert Bailey, Jr.) "An act of nature, and we'll never fully understand it."
  • (Mark Wahlberg) "Nice answer, Jake. He's right. Science will come up with some reason to put in the books, but in the end it'll be just a theory. I mean, we will fail to acknowledge that there are forces at work beyond our understanding. To be a scientist, you must have a respectful awe for the laws of nature."
  • (Mark Wahlberg) "Jake?"
  • (Robert Bailey, Jr.) "How much does the human nose grow each year?"
  • (Mark Wahlberg) "It's miniscule, buddy. Okay? Don't worry about it. You're going to be a heartthrob your whole life. I was just messing with you."
  • (Mark Wahlberg) "If we're going to die, I want you to know something. I was in the pharmacy a while ago. There was a really good-looking pharmacist behind the counter. Really good-looking. I went up and asked her where the cough syrup was. I didn't even have a cough, and I almost bought it. I'm talking about a completely superfluous bottle of cough syrup, which costs like six bucks."

  • (Mark Wahlberg) "Hello. My name is Elliot Moore. I'm just going to talk in a very positive manner, giving off good vibes. We're just here to use the bathroom, and we're just going to leave. I hope that's okay."
  • (Mark Wahlberg) "Plastic. I'm talking to a plastic plant. I'm still doing it."

Identify the -- rules -- design the experiment -- careful observation, measurements, that's what I'm trying to do, interpret the experimental pattern, interpret -- What if it IS the plants? That group was larger than ours. This thing's been escalating all day. Smaller and smaller populations have been setting this off. They react to human stimulus. Maybe people are setting off the plants?"
