The Fifth Element (1997)
Ian Holm: Cornelius
Korben Dallas : [Leans down and kisses Leeloo. Leeloo swipes his gun and holds it to his head]
Korben Dallas : You're right, you're right, I shouldn't have done that. I'm sorry.
Leeloo : Senno ecto gammat!
Korben Dallas : I'm sorry, I'm sorry!
Leeloo : ecto gammat!
Korben Dallas : [In a later scene] When she woke up, she said a bunch a stuff. I didn't understand any of it but... what does 'ecto gammat' mean?
Priest Vito Cornelius : Uh... never again, without my permission.
Korben Dallas : That's what I thought.
Zorg : This case is empty.
[switches to conversation between Cornelius and Leeloo, who is laughing]
Priest Vito Cornelius : What do you mean, empty?
[back to conversation between Zorg and Aknot]
Zorg : Empty. The opposite of full. This case is supposed to be full! Anyone care to explain?
Leeloo : [back to Leeloo, speaking in the Divine Language]
Priest Vito Cornelius : The guardians... gave the stones... to someone they could trust... who-who took another route... she's supposed to contact this person... in a hotel... and she's looking for the address. Easy.
Leeloo : [points to the computer screen] Dort.
David : It's-it's planet Fhloston, in the Angel Constellation!
Priest Vito Cornelius : We're saved.
[back to Zorg and Aknot]
Zorg : I'm screwed.
Zorg : Where are the stones?
Priest Vito Cornelius : I don't know. And even if I did know, I wouldn't tell someone like you.
Zorg : Why? What's wrong with me?
Priest Vito Cornelius : I try to serve life. And you seem to want to destroy it.
Zorg : Oh, Father. You're so wrong. Let me explain.
[Puts and empty water glass on his desk]
Zorg : Life, which you so nobly serve, comes from destruction, disorder and chaos. Now take this empty glass. Here it is: peaceful, serene, boring. But if it is destroyed
[Pushes the glass off the table. It shatter on the floor, and several small machines come out to clean it up]
Zorg : Look at all these little things! So busy now! Notice how each one is useful. A lovely ballet ensues, so full of form and color. Now, think about all those people that created them. Technicians, engineers, hundreds of people, who will be able to feed their children tonight, so those children can grow up big and strong and have little teeny children of their own, and so on and so forth. Thus, adding to the great chain of life. You see, father, by causing a little destruction, I am in fact encouraging life. In reality, you and I are in the same business.
[Father Cornelius confides in a bartender]
Priest Vito Cornelius : I know she's made to be strong, but she's also so fragile, so human. Know what I mean?
[Robot bartender shakes its head]
[as the Federation ships prepare to fire on the dark planet]
Scientist's Aide : Its structure has just solidified on the surface.
Head Scientist : I think it's anticipating the attack. Anticipation denotes intelligence.
Priest Vito Cornelius : The most terrible intelligence imaginable, Mr. President.
Priest Vito Cornelius : Korben, I realize you that must be pretty mad at me, but I want you to know that I am fighting for a noble cause.
Korben Dallas : Yes, you're trying to save the world, I remember. Right now, I'm trying to save Leeloo, father.
Priest Vito Cornelius : Leeloo's in trouble?
Korben Dallas : When is Leeloo not in trouble?
[Cornelius bursts into Korben's room and holds him at gunpoint]
Priest Vito Cornelius : I'm really sorry to have to resort to these methods, Mr. Wallace...
Korben Dallas : Dallas.
Priest Vito Cornelius : Er, Mr. Dallas. But we heard about your good luck on the radio, and we need your tickets for Fhloston.
Korben Dallas : Is this how priests normally take vacations?
Priest Vito Cornelius : We're not on a vacation, we're on a mission!
Korben Dallas : What mission is that?
Priest Vito Cornelius : We have to save the world, my son.
Priest Vito Cornelius : [discussing the Dark Planet] Imagine for a moment that this thing is not anything that can be identified because it prefers not to be. Wherever there is life, it brings death, because it is evil, absolute evil.
President Lindberg : One more reason to shoot first.
Priest Vito Cornelius : Evil begets evil, Mr. President. Shooting will only make it stronger.
