Yori: I knew you'd escape. They haven't built a circuit that could hold you!
Crom: Look. This... is all a mistake. I'm just a compound interest program. I work at a savings and loan! I can't play these video games! Guard: Sure you can, pal. Look like a natural athlete if I ever saw one. Crom: Who, me? Are you kidding? No, I run out to check on T-bill rates, I get outta breath. Hey, look, you guys are gonna make my user, Mr. Henderson, very angry. He's a full-branch manager. Guard: Great. Another religious nut.
[Disappointed with Sark.] Master Control Program: You've enjoyed all the power you've been given, haven't you? I wonder how you'd take to working in a pocket calculator.
Dumont: Yes I'm old. Old enough to remember when the MCP was just a chess program!
Flynn: On the other side of the screen, it all looks so easy.
Master Control Program: You're in trouble, program. Why don't you make it easy on yourself. Who's your user? CLU: Forget it, mister high-and-mighty Master Control! You're not going to make me talk! Master Control Program: Suit yourself.
Sark: The Master Control Program has chosen you to serve your system on the game grid.
Master Control Program: You're getting brutal, Sark. Brutal and needlessly sadistic. Sark: Thank you, Master Control.
Ed Dillinger: If you've seen one Computer Electronics Show, you've seen them all.
Dr. Walter Gibbs: Ha, ha. You've got to expect some static. After all, computers are just machines; they can't think. Alan Bradley: Some programs will be thinking soon. Dr. Walter Gibbs: Won't that be grand? Computers and the programs will start thinking and the people will stop.
Lora: You know, Flynn has been thinking of breaking into the system ever since Dillinger canned him. And he had Group 7 access. Alan Bradley: [sour] Flynn had access to you too.
Alan Bradley: The best programmer Encom ever had, and he ends up playing Space Cowboy in some back room.
Dr. Walter Gibbs: User requests are what computers are for! Ed Dillinger: DOING OUR BUSINESS is what computers are for.
Ed Dillinger: Encom isn't the business you started in your garage anymore. We're bidding accounts in thirty different countries -- new defense systems. We have one of the most sophisticated pieces of equipment in existence. Dr. Walter Gibbs: I know all that. Sometimes I wish I were back in that garage. Ed Dillinger: That can be arranged, Walter.
[A Bit flies around Flynn's head in a Recognizer.] Kevin Flynn: Hey! Hold it right there! Bit: Yes. Kevin Flynn: What do you mean, "yes"? Bit: Yes. Kevin Flynn: Is that all you can say? Bit: No. Kevin Flynn: Know anything else? Bit: Yes. Kevin Flynn: Positive and negative, huh. You're a bit, aren't you? Bit: Yes. Kevin Flynn: Well, where's your program? Isn't he going to miss you? Bit: No. Kevin Flynn: I'M your program? Bit: Yes. Kevin Flynn: I've got a mouth to feed. Bit: Yesyesyesyes!
[Flynn is flying a Recognizer.] Kevin Flynn: Pretty good driving, huh? [Crash!] Bit: No! Kevin Flynn: Who asked you?
Dumont: All that is visible must grow beyond itself, and extend into the realm of the invisible.
