Alan Bradley Quotes in Tron (2010)


Alan Bradley Quotes:

  • [from trailer]

    Sam Flynn: Alan, you're acting like I'm going to find him sittin' at work, just, "Hey, kiddo, lost track of time."

    Alan Bradley: Wouldn't that be something.

  • Sam Flynn: [Alan has come to visit Sam in his storage container/apartment, which has "Dumont Shipping" on the outside and overlooks the harbor] Why are you here, Alan?

    Alan Bradley: [holds up his pager] I was paged last night.

    Sam Flynn: Oh, man, still rocking the pager? Good for you.

    Alan Bradley: [looks down at the pager and smiles, then back to Sam] Yeah, your Dad once told me I had to sleep with it, and I still do. Page came from your Dad's office at the arcade.

    Sam Flynn: [looking at a magazine, pauses] So?

    [puts the magazine down]

    Alan Bradley: So? That number's been disconnected for twenty years. Sam, two nights before he disappeared, he came to my house. "I've cracked it," he kept saying. He said he was about genetic algorithms, quantum teleportation. He said he was about to change everything. Science, medicine, religion. He wouldn't have left that, Sam.

    [sits down next to Sam and playfully punches him in the arm]

    Alan Bradley: He wouldn't have left you.

  • Alan Bradley: Excuse me?

    Richard Mackey: Yes... Alan?

    Alan Bradley: Given the prices we charge to students and schools, what sort of improvements have been made in Flynn... I mean, um, ENCOM OS-12?

    Richard Mackey: This year we put a "12" on the box.

    [Board laughs. Bradley looks at Mackey coldly]

    Edward Dillinger: OS-12 is the most secure operating system ever released. The idea of sharing our software or giving it away for free disappeared with Kevin Flynn.

  • Richard Mackey: [Sam had just hacked the ENCOM data center, stole the OS-12 source and placed a video of his dog its place] Does anyone know where the master file is?

    Alan Bradley: [smiling confidently and showing a tablet computer] I do. It's on the web.

  • Alan Bradley: [about the digitizing laser] Great. Can it send me to Hawaii?

    Lora: Yep, but you gotta purchase your program 30 days in advance. How's it going upstairs?

    Alan Bradley: Frustrating. I had Tron almost ready, when Dillinger cut everyone with Group-7 access out of the system. I tell you ever since he got that Master Control Program, the system's got more bugs than a bait store.

    Dr. Walter Gibbs: [laughs] You've got to expect some static. After all, computers are just machines; they can't think.

    Alan Bradley: Some programs will be thinking soon.

    Dr. Walter Gibbs: Won't that be grand? Computers and the programs will start thinking and the people will stop.

  • Alan Bradley: You invented Space Paranoids?

    Kevin Flynn: Paranoids, Matrix Blaster, Vice Squad, a whole slew of them. I was this close to starting my own little enterprise, man. But enter another software engineer. Not so young, not so bright, but very very sneaky. Ed Dillinger. So one night, our boy Flynn, he goes to his terminal, tries to read up his file. I get nothing on there, it's a big blank. Okay, now we take you three months later. Dillinger presents ENCOM with five video games, that's *he's* invented. The slime didn't even change the names, man! He gets a big, fat promotion. And thus begins his meteoric rise to... what is he now, Executive V.P.?

    Lora: Senior exec.

    Kevin Flynn: *Senior* exec...?


    Kevin Flynn: Meanwhile, the kids are putting eight million quarters *a week* into Paranoids machines. I don't see a dime except what I squeeze out of here.

    Alan Bradley: I still don't understand why you want to break into the system.

    Kevin Flynn: *Because*, man, *somewhere* in one of these memories is the *evidence*! If I got in far enough, I could reconstruct it!

  • Ed Dillinger: What's the project you're working on?

    Alan Bradley: Well, it's called Tron. It's a security program itself, actually. It monitors all contacts between our system and other systems. It finds anything going on that's not scheduled, it shuts it down. I sent you a memo on it.

    Ed Dillinger: Part of the Master Control Program?

    Alan Bradley: No, it'll run independently. It can watchdog the MCP as well.

  • Alan Bradley: [about Flynn] The best programmer ENCOM ever saw, and he winds up playing space cowboy in some backroom.

  • [last lines]

    Alan Bradley: [to Lora] Try to look official. Here comes the boss.

    [helicopter lands]

    Kevin Flynn: [to helicopter pilot] Pick me up in an hour. Thanks.

    Kevin Flynn: [to Alan and Lora] Greetings, programs.

    [hugs them]

  • Kevin Flynn: You were never much for small talk, were you?

    [to Alan]

    Kevin Flynn: She still leave her clothes all over the floor?

    Lora: Flynn!

    Alan Bradley: No!

    Lora: Alan!

    Alan Bradley: I mean, not that often.

    Lora: Now you can see why all his friends are 14 years old!

    Kevin Flynn: Touche, touche.

  • Lora: You know, Flynn has been thinking of breaking into the system ever since Dillinger canned him. And he had Group 7 access.

    Alan Bradley: [sour] Flynn had access to you too.

  • Alan Bradley: Flynn, are you embezzling?

    Kevin Flynn: "Embezzling" is such an ugly word, Mr. Bradley.

  • Ed Dillinger: We've had to shut down all Group 7 personnel, just briefly security. Someone with that access has been tampering.

    Alan Bradley: I hope you don't think it's me. I don't even balance my checkbook on downtime. I have an abacus at home for that.
