Devil's Advocate, The (1997)
John Milton: Look at me -- underestimated from Day One!
You'd never think I was a master of the universe, now, would
John Milton: I'm the hand up Mona Lisa's skirt. I'm a surprise,
Kevin. They don't see me coming: that's what you're missing.
John Milton: And as we're straddling from one deal to the
next, who's got his eye on the planet, as the air thickens,
the water sours, and even the bees' honey takes on the metallic
taste of radioactivity? And it just keeps coming, faster
and faster. There's no chance to think, to prepare; it's
buy futures, sell futures, when there is no future!
John Milton: Free will. It's like butterfly wings: once
touched, they never get off the ground. No, I only set the
stage. You pull your own strings.
Kevin Lomax: What are you? John Milton: Oh, I have so many
names... Kevin Lomax: Satan. John Milton: Call me Dad.
John Milton: A woman's shoulders are the front lines of
her mystique, and her neck, if she's alive, has all the
mystery of a border town. A no-man's land in that battle
between the mind and the body.
Kevin Lomax: Free will after all.
Kevin Lomax: Is this a test? Pam: Isn't everything?
Kevin Lomax: Are we negotiating? John Milton: Always.
John Milton: Freedom, baby... is never having to say you're
John Milton: Guilt is just a bag of fuckin' bricks. All
ya gotta do is set it down.
[Speaking of God.] John Milton: Look, but don't touch. Touch,
but don't taste. Taste, but don't swallow.
Kevin Lomax: What about love? John Milton: Overrated. Biochemically
no different from eating large quantities of chocolate.
John Milton: The worst vice is advice.
[Speaking of God] John Milton: He's an absentee landlord.
John Milton: Vanity, definitely my favorite sin.
Mary Ann Lomax: I know we've got all this money, and it's
supposed to be OK, but it's not.
John Milton: Free will, it is a bitch.
Alice Lomax: Let me tell you about New York. Kevin Lomax:
Let me guess. Alice Lomax: "Fallen, fallen, is Babylon the
great. It has become a dwelling place of demons." Revelation
18. Wouldn't hurt you to look it over. Kevin Lomax: Couldn't
forget it if I tried. Alice Lomax: Oh, really? And what
*happened* to Babylon?
