Mark Gor Quotes in A Better Tomorrow (1986)
Mark Gor Quotes:
Mark Gor: You think learning will help you? Don't think reading gangster books will make you the boss. Have you ever had a gun pointed at your head? No. Twelve years ago... twelve years already. For the first time, I went with Ho to bring goods to Indonesia. The boss there treated us to dinner in the night club. I said something wrong to displease the boss. Then there were two guns pointed at my head. I was forced to dring a bottle of whisky. I was so scared, I pissed my pants! Fortunately, Ho drank the whole bottle of whisky for me. But it got even worse after that. Four guns were pointed at my head! You know they made me drink? Piss! Drink piss in a night club! You want to learn? That's learning! That's how we got through out first job.
Ho Tse Sung: That's all in the past. Forget about it.
Mark Gor: No! I have never cried before; that was the first time I cried. I swore I'd never let anyone point a gun at my head again!
Ho Tse Sung: Do you believe there's a God?
Mark Gor: Yes. I am God. You're one. A god can be human. A god is someone who controls his destiny. Sometimes, there's things you can't control. You win some, you lose some.
Ho Tse Sung: Wow. You're good at bullshitting. Your english has improved. You can even say "Of course."
Mark Gor: [in English] Of course!
Mark Gor: Get over here! This is your brother! Take a good look at him! Take a good look! Whatever he's done in the past, he's more than paid you back! He's trying to change his life around! Why can't you accept him? Why? To be brothers...
Mark Gor: I didn't realize Hong Kong looked so beautiful at night. Such beauty can vanish in a blink. It really isn't worthwhile.
Mark Gor: I've waited for a chance for 3 years. I'm not showing them I'm the best, I just want to tell that I can take back what I had lost.
Mark Gor: If you don't stop pointing that gun, you'll have to use it.
Mark Gor: Mark, even with my two legs broken, I could never make it up to you.
Mark Gor: Stupid, I just had some back luck. Don't worry about it. I'm so happy to see you again. It's been so long. You still look good.
Ho Tse Sung: Mark, this is not our world anymore. Why are you still staying here?
Mark Gor: I've waited for you for three years! Three years!
Ho Tse Sung: We can start over again.
Mark Gor: Don't worry about me. Look after your brother. He's been following Shing everyday. It's getting dangerous. Anyhow, you two are real brothers.
Mark Gor: I've never cried since I was a kid, I cried that time. I swore to myself that no one will point at me with a gun.
Mark Gor: That's enough! I don't need your pity! You don't owe me anything. I would never force my own friends to do something they wouldn't do. I have my own regulations. I just don't want to live like this any more. Do you think I like to beg? I've been in bad shape for three years, waiting for this opportunity. This is my only chance, not to prove that I'm the best, but to simply take back what I have lost. Look at yourself. Look at what you've become. Back then, people rejected you. Now you can't even take two steps without someone following you. Have you ever fought for a chance? You never have. Never! don't want to be like you.
Mark Gor: If we don't watch, we'll have nothing.
Ho Tse Sung: I want to see Kit get married.
Mark Gor: See him consummate his marriage, have a baby, then his life will be even harder!
Mark Gor: Nobody knows what tomorrow may bring.
