Doctor Strange (2007 Video)
Ancient One: You can only heal the wounds of the flesh once you have healed the wounds of the soul.
Ancient One: Love, loss, pain. They are stones in the wall that block your path, Stephen.
Dr. Stephen Strange: What? Are you... Are you really here?
Ancient One: See the wall for what it is, and then tear it down, for the truth is waiting.
Dr. Stephen Strange: What truth?
Ancient One: That your sister could not be saved.
Dr. Stephen Strange: How can you say that? She died on *my* table! She trusted me!
Ancient One: You are a natural healer, Stephen, but not all lives are destined to be saved. It was out of your hands.
Dr. Stephen Strange: I don't believe that.
Ancient One: And that is what has chained you to this place. Accept the truth... and break free. You stand at the foot of the wall. What is your next move?
Dr. Stephen Strange: You want me to scrub the floor?
Ancient One: I would do it, but I am an old man.
Dr. Stephen Strange: I don't understand... How am I supposed to hold the brushes?
Ancient One: That is between you and the brushes.
Dr. Stephen Strange: [about to operate] Okay, April, you should be feeling a little more relaxed.
April Strange: I'm not scared.
Dr. Stephen Strange: And you shouldn't be... because I'm going to take care of you.
April Strange: How do I look?
Dr. Stephen Strange: You could use some more lipstick. Okay, we're ready. Now, when you wake up you'll feel a little groggy, but... you'll be all better.
April Strange: I am scared.
Dr. Stephen Strange: April, you're going to a be fine. I promise.
Ancient One: Matter is energy which is all around us. Sorcery is simply the art of wielding that energy.
Mordo: Have you ever held a blade in your life?
Dr. Stephen Strange: To save lives, yes, but not to take them.
April Strange: What'd he say?
Dr. Stephen Strange: Forget him. He's not the right doctor for you.
April Strange: You've said that about the last three.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Listen to me, April. We're going to wait six months. By then, I'll be your doctor, and we'll deal with this once and for all.
April Strange: You're going to be my doctor? Oh, man! Now I'm really in trouble.
Dr. Stephen Strange: [chuckles] Wait until you get my bill.
Dr. Stephen Strange: How's the scouting been going?
Wong: Very good. I have discovered several new prospects. Young, but very promising. One in particular, a woman named Clea.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Wong, we have to find Mordo.
Wong: You will need the Eye of Agamotto to find him and his master.
Dr. Stephen Strange: But that belongs to the Sorcerer Supreme.
Wong: Exactly, and with it, you can unlock the power that dwells within you.
Dr. Stephen Strange: No, not me. I don't want it.
Wong: Which is why it is *your* destiny.
Ancient One: You have lost sight of our purpose, Mordo. You focus only on the battle, but we are protectors, not warriors.
Mordo: Yet we fight a war, so perhaps a warrior should take the lead.
Oliver: [to Strange] When I saw Cory sulking out there, I knew you were in.
Dr. Stephen Strange: [on Dr Atwater] That woman has issues.
Oliver: Yes, she does, and they're all with you.
Wong: What has happened?
Mordo: Shadow hounds.
Wong: I will accompany you.
Mordo: Oh? And what of your duties as nursemaid?
Wong: Even when I was *your* nursemaid, Mordo, I still accomplished all that was required of me.
Dr. Gina Atwater: I can't believe it. The great Dr. Strange has descended from his lofty tower to slum in the coma ward.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Don't get used to it. This hospital didn't hire me to handle ordinary cases.
Dr. Gina Atwater: I almost forgot how grumpy you get when you miss your morning coffee and colonic.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Well, let me clarify the economics for you, Gina. Sensational patients bring recognition. Recognition brings money, and money keeps Wellhaven's doors open. You should be thanking me.
Dr. Gina Atwater: Listen, Stephen, nothing is absolute in the world of medicine. You know that.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Save it. I'll be lucky if I can open a door, let alone hold a scalpel.
Dr. Gina Atwater: You're still a doctor, and you don't need a scalpel to heal people.
Dr. Stephen Strange: You think I had this coming, don't you?
Dr. Gina Atwater: Stephen, please...
Dr. Stephen Strange: Just go.
Wong: Dr. Strange.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Who's there?
Wong: I am Wong.
Dr. Stephen Strange: How do you know my name?
Wong: I know a great deal about you, what you have been through, and what you are attempting to do now. Do not lose hope, Dr. Strange, for healing awaits you.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Where?
Wong: In Tibet.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Tibet? How am I supposed to get there? I have nothing.
Wong: [hands him a map] You have all that is needed, and this will guide you there.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Spiritual guidance? That's what you're offering me? But he told me you could fix my hands.
Ancient One: I cannot, for the cure you seek is within you.
Dr. Stephen Strange: I don't understand.
Ancient One: Then you have made this journey in vain.
Dr. Stephen Strange: How do you do these things?
Ancient One: By learning to accept the unacceptable.
Ancient One: The space we occupy here on Earth is shared by many others. Entire worlds. We are not aware of them for they exist in separate dimensions. However, each dimension has a gateway, one that leads only to this place: the Sanctum Sanctorum. It is called the Nexus. The center of all other dimensions. As sorcerers, it has become our duty to defend it.
Dr. Gina Atwater: Stephen? You look... You look great.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Things have changed for me.
Dr. Gina Atwater: I'm so glad. But how did you know I was here?
Dr. Stephen Strange: You always come here, Gina.
Dr. Gina Atwater: Wait. Your hand, it's healed. How did it...
Dr. Stephen Strange: It's a long story, but I want you to know that you were right. It is time I start giving back.
Dr. Gina Atwater: I don't understand.
Dr. Stephen Strange: You will.
Dr. Gina Atwater: I am sick of this hospital feeding your monster ego. It's time you start giving back!
Dr. Stephen Strange: Oliver, there's *got* to be someone.
Oliver: There's always someone who'll take your *money*, Stephen, but that doesn't qualify them to treat your hands.
Dr. Stephen Strange: I'll take that chance! I don't care how experimental or how expensive. I need some options. Please. Help me!
Dr. Stephen Strange: Look, I don't know why you think this is helping me, because it isn't. My hands... are getting worse!
Wong: They should not be the measure of your progress.
Wong: This is not about your hands. It never has been.
Dr. Stephen Strange: No, listen to me. I'm a doctor. I need my hands!
Wong: No, you do not.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Then there's no reason for me to be here.
Ancient One: So many innocent lives and four of our own. Our brothers, our sisters, their bodies lie at your feet, Mordo!
Mordo: We were victorious. The Chinou were slain and the Sanctum was defended. I regret nothing.
Dormammu: Come. The gateway is now open. Spread into the night. Feast, multiply, for this world is ours.
Chuck: Frank, what the hell was that thing?
Frank: I don't know! Run!
