Doctor Strange (2016)
Chiwetel Ejiofor: Mordo
[Pangborn senses someone in his workshop]
Jonathan Pangborn : Can I help you?
Baron Mordo : They carried you into Kamar-Taj on a stretcher. Look at you now, Pangborn.
Jonathan Pangborn : Mordo. So what can I do for you, man?
Baron Mordo : I've been away for many months now and I've had a revelation. The true purpose of a sorcerer is to twist things out of their proper shape. Stealing power. Perverting nature. Like you.
Jonathan Pangborn : I've stolen nothing. This is my power. Mine.
Baron Mordo : Power has a purpose.
[Pangborn picks up a crowbar and tries to attack Mordo, who strips him of his powers and restores his paralysis]
Jonathan Pangborn : Why are you doing this?
Baron Mordo : Because I see, at long last, what's wrong with the world. Too many sorcerers.
[Strange is experimenting with time manipulation using the Eye of Agamotto]
Baron Mordo : [bursting in] Stop! Tampering with continuum probabilities is forbidden!
Dr. Stephen Strange : I-I-I was just doing exactly what it said in the book!
Wong : And what did the book say about the dangers of performing that ritual?
Dr. Stephen Strange : I don't know, I hadn't gotten to that part yet.
Baron Mordo : Temporal manipulations can create branches in time. Unstable dimensional openings. Spatial paradoxes! Time loops! You wanna get stuck reliving the same moment over and over forever or never having existed at all?
Dr. Stephen Strange : They really should put the warnings before this spell.
Baron Mordo : [to Strange] I once stood in your place. And I, too, was... disrespectful. So, might I offer you some advice? Forget everything you think you know.
Baron Mordo : The bill comes due. Don't you see? Her transgressions led to the Zealots to Dormammu. Kaecilius... was her fault! And here we are... in the consequence of her deception. A world on fire.
Baron Mordo : This is a relic. Some magic is too powerful to sustain so we imbue objects with it... allowing them to take the strain we cannot. This is the staff... of the Living Tribunal. There are many relics. The Wand of Watoomb. The Vaulting Boots of Valtorr.
Dr. Stephen Strange : Really just roll off the tongue, don't they?
