Caretaker Quotes in Ghost Rider (2007)


Caretaker Quotes:

  • [last lines]

    Caretaker: [voiceover] It's said that the West was built on legends. And that legends are a way of understanding things greater than ourselves. Forces that shape our lives, events that defy explanation. Individuals whose lives soar to the heavens or fall to the earth. This is how legends are born.

    [Johnny transforms into Ghost Rider]

  • Caretaker: Contract of San Venganza.

    Caretaker: [Johnny reaches for the Contract, Caretaker pulls it away] Hell on Earth.

    Johnny Blaze: Now you're gonna have to trust me.

    Caretaker: Why is that?

    Johnny Blaze: He may have my soul but he doesn't have my spirit.

    Caretaker: Any man that's got the guts to sell his soul for love has got the power to change the world. You didn't do it for greed, you did it for the right reason. Maybe that puts God on your side. To them that makes you dangerous, makes you unpredictable. That's the best thing you can be right now.

I got nothing left, I could only change one more time and I was saving it for this. God knows I made my share of mistakes. I've been trying to make them right ever since. All I can do is hope he sees fit to give me a second chance.

    Caretaker: Oh I ain't saying you did or you didn't. All I'm saying is that you could have robbed banks, sold dope or stole your grandmother's pension checks and none of us would have minded. But shaving points off of a football game, man that's un-American.
