  2. I'm not finished.
      Johnny Depp as Edward


  3. The years spent in isolation have not equipped him with the tools necessary to judge right from wrong. He's had no context. He's been completely without guidance. Furthermore, his work - the garden sculptures, hairstyles and so forth - indicate that he's a highly imaginative... uh... character. It seems clear that his awareness of what we call reality is radically underdeveloped.

      Alan Arkin as Bill

  8. This is the most uncomfortable coffin I've ever been in.
      Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi


  9. Why if I had half a chance, I could make an entire movie using this stock footage. The story opens on these mysterious explosions. Nobody knows what's causing them, but it's upsetting all the buffalo. So, the military are called in to solve the mystery.
      Johnny Depp as Ed Wood


  10. Visions are worth fighting for. Why spend your life making someone else's dreams?
      Vincent D'Onofrio as Orson Welles


  11. You know, you're, you're much scarier in real life than you are in the movie.
      Johnny Depp as Ed Wood


  12. Take my word for it. If you want to make out with a young lady, take her to see "Dracula".

  14. If you can sing alone, you sing in front of other people. There's no difference.

      Will Farrell as Buddy


  16. You sit on a throne of lies!
      Will Farrell as Buddy


  17. I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.

  24. I am my father's daughter, and I am not afraid of anything.
      Catet Blanchett as Elizabeth


  25. There is so little beauty in this world, and so much suffering. Do you suppose that is what God had in mind? That is to say if there is a god at all. Perhaps there is nothing in this universe but ourselves. And our thoughts.
      Geoffrey Rush as Sir Francis Walsingham


  26. All men need something greater than themselves to look up to and worship. They must be able to touch the divine here on earth.
      Geoffrey Rush as Sir Francis Walsingham


  27. Madam, if I may. A prince should never flinch from being blamed for acts of ruthlessness which are necessary for safe guarding the state and their own person. You must take these things so much to heart that you do not fear to strike. Even the very nearest that you have if they be implicated.
      Geoffrey Rush as Sir Francis Walsingham


  28. I do not like wars. They have uncertain outcomes.

      Christian Bale as Jim


  32. Learned a new word today. Atom bomb. It was like the God taking a photograph.
      Christian Bale as Jim
