Dr. Manhattan Quotes in Watchmen (2009)
Dr. Manhattan Quotes:
Dr. Manhattan: She was pregnant. And you gunned her down.
Edward Blake: That's right. And you know what, you watched me. You could've turned the gun into steam, the bullets into mercury, the bottle into goddamned snowflakes but you didn't, did you? You really don't give a damn about human beings. You're driftin' out of touch, Doc. God help us all.
Dr. Manhattan: I feel fear, for the last time.
Dr. Manhattan: They claim their labors are to build a heaven, yet their heaven is populated by horrors. Perhaps the world is not made. Perhaps nothing is made. A clock without a craftsman. It's too late. Always has been, always will be. Too late.
Dr. Manhattan: [remembering Janey while on Mars] Janey accuses me of chasing jailbait. She bursts into angry tears, asking if it's because she's getting older. It's true. She's aging more noticeably every day - while I am standing still. I prefer the stillness here. I am tired of Earth. These people. I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives.
Dr. Manhattan: Adrian, stop this. The tachyons were clever. But even if I can't predict where you are I can still turn the walls to glass. I should thank you. I'd almost forgotten the excitement of *not* knowing. The delights of uncertainty.
Dr. Manhattan: You're my only remaining link to the world.
Laurie Juspeczyk: I don't want that responsibility anymore.
[to Adrian as she walks out]
Laurie Juspeczyk: He's all yours.
Adrian Veidt: Don't worry John, she'll be back.
Dr. Manhattan: No she won't.
Dr. Manhattan: In January 1971, President Nixon asks me to intervene in Vietnam, something that his predecessors would *not* ask. A week later the conflict ends. Some of the Viet Cong want to surrender to me personally.
Dr. Manhattan: If the United States and Soviet Union engage in all-out war the resulting blast wave would produce a sudden burst of tachyons... particles which travel backward through what... *you* perceive as time... therefore obscuring my vision of the present.
Laurie Juspeczyk: John! The TV said you were on Mars.
Dr. Manhattan: I am on Mars. You and I are about to have a conversation there.
Laurie Juspeczyk: What are you talking about?
Dr. Manhattan: You're going to try to convince me to save the world.
