Delightful Dialogue: The Island


Merrick: What's troubling, you, Lincoln?

Lincoln Six-Echo: It - it's just... all right, Tuesday night is tofu night, and I'm asking myself "Who here decided that everyone likes tofu in the first place, and what is tofu anyway?" And why can't I have bacon? I line up every morning, and I'm not allowed any bacon for my breakfast. And - and tell me - let's talk about all the white. Why is everyone wearing white all the time? It's impossible to keep clean, I'm walking around, I get - I always get the gray stripe, I never get any color, and I hand it in to be cleaned, and - and someone cleans it and folds it neatly back in my drawer, but who? Who is that person? I don't know. I just - I wanna know answers and I - and I wish that there was more.

Merrick: More?

Lincoln Six-Echo: Yeah, more than just waiting to go to The Island.

~ Sean Bean and Ewan McGregor in The Island (2005)

This is such a phenomenal movie. And I love the way Ewan says "bacon". :)
