Ciarán Hinds: Roarke
Roarke : [to Ghost Rider] You! Worst fucking deal I ever made.
Johnny Blaze : [voiceover] It doesn't matter how far you run, there are some demons you just can't escape. My name is Johnny Blaze, I used to ride a motorcycle for a living. I did a bare ass 360 triple back flip in front of twenty two thousand people. It's kind of funny, it's on Youtube, check it out. But when my dad got sick, I did something way crazier than that.
Roarke : You look like you can use a little help, are you willing to make a deal, John?
Johnny Blaze : Do it, save his life, do it!
Johnny Blaze : Yeah that is right, I'm the guy who made a deal with the devil. Now I know what you're thinking: does this kid ever watch movies, does this ever work out fine? Well, let's just say good judgement wasn't exactly my forte. I was possessed by an ancient demon. In the presence of evil, I change into a monster, and I prey on the wicked, and I suck out their souls. And you don't want to be around when that happens. See, there's good and bad in all of us, and maybe you're not a murderer, but you did something that you didn't want the Rider to see: a white lie, an illegal download. What about you? And you? I've tried to fight it, to hold it back, but the darkness inside me only gets stronger. That's why I had to run, halfway across the world... and I'm still running.
Roarke : [answering phone] Carrigan!
Ray Carrigan : I got your package but the cost of doing business with me just went up.
Roarke : I don't understand.
Ray Carrigan : What's not to understand? I want more. You understand that?
Roarke : We had an agreement, Carrigan. Changing the defined terms of an agreement is something we just don't do.
Ray Carrigan : You told me to get a kid. Not a problem. I've done that with people before. And I have a history with his bitch of a mom, so there's no better guy for the job. But what you didn't tell me, is that I'd be walking into the middle of a goddamn horror movie.
Ray Carrigan : Oh, this is funny to you? Three of my guys get turned into matchsticks last night by a dude on a motorcycle with his head on fire.
Roarke : Come again?
Ray Carrigan : You heard me. I've seen things, weird things, bad things. But that thing last night? No. No, no, no.
Roarke : Put the boy on the phone.
Ray Carrigan : [holds phone to Danny's ear] Talk. Talk!
Roarke : Danny, do you hear me? I want you to listen very closely. Listen to me.
[whispers demonic talk into phone, Danny screams]
Ray Carrigan : What the hell was that?
Roarke : Think of the child as a sort of computer. You know computers, right? I just uploaded a little program. A firewall. Our friend on the motorcycle won't be able to sense him now, to track him. Of course, he still may be able to find you, so I suggest you keep moving.
Roarke : You wanted to know why I look this way. Think of... a flamethrower.
[scene of Ghost Rider urinating fire]
Danny : [laughs]
Roarke : Is that funny? Okay. A flamethrower made of papier-mâché. All that power. But try to use it, you burn up. This body I'm living in, it's weak, human. It's dying. It was never made to things that I can do. But you... you're only part human. You have all the power that I have inside of you. Like father, like son.
[leans on to touch Danny, Danny shrugs him off]
Roarke : But this corporeal form can wield the power without burning itself up.
Nadya : When you met the seducer, he offered you something.
Johnny Blaze : Yeah. My father's life. Shocker, he lied.
Nadya : For me, it was only myself. It was suppose to be a big score for Carrigan, but it went bad. I made it out of the third-floor window. I was choking on my own blood. I knew I was gonna die. I could feel it. And that's when he found me.
Roarke : [flash back] You look like you could use a little help.
Johnny Blaze : Roarke.
Nadya : He promised to take the pain away to save my life. But he asked for something in return.
Johnny Blaze : A son?
Nadya : Maybe can never understand.
Johnny Blaze : No, I get it. You're the Devil's baby mama.
