Raoul Silva Quotes:

  • [as Bond is tied to a chair, an elevator lowers in front of him, and Silva appears and walks toward him]

    Raoul Silva: Hello, James. Welcome. Do you like the island? My grandmother had an island. Nothing to boast of. You could walk around it in an hour, but still it was, it was a paradise for us. One summer, we went for a visit and discovered the place had been infested with rats. They'd come on a fishing boat and gorged themselves on coconut. So how do you get rats off an island? Hmm? My grandmother showed me. We buried an oil drum and hinged the lid. Then we wired coconut to the lid as bait and the rats would come for the coconut and... they would fall into the drum. And after a month, you have trapped all the rats, but what do you do then? Throw the drum into the ocean? Burn it? No. You just leave it and they begin to get hungry. And one by one...

    [mimics rat munching sound]

    Raoul Silva: they start eating each other until there are only two left. The two survivors. And then what? Do you kill them? No. You take them and release them into the trees, but now they don't eat coconut anymore. Now, they only eat rat. You have changed their nature. The two survivors. This is what she made us.

  • Raoul Silva: [Silva goes to the desk, accessing Bond's debriefing results from his computer] Medical evaluation: fail. Physical evaluation: fail. Psychological evaluation, alcohol and substance addiction indicated. Ooh! Pathological rejection of authority based on unresolved childhood trauma.

  • Raoul Silva: If you wanted, you could pick your own secret missions. As I do. Name it, name it. Destabilize a multinational by manipulating stocks. Bip. Easy. Interrupt transmissions from a spy satellite over Kabul... done. Hmm. Rig an election in Uganda. All to the highest bidder.

    James Bond: Or a gas explosion in London.

    Raoul Silva: Mm-hm. Just point and click.

    James Bond: Well, everybody needs a hobby.

    Raoul Silva: So what's yours?

    James Bond: Resurrection.

  • Raoul Silva: No remorse. Just as I had imagined.

    M: Regret is unprofessional.

    Raoul Silva: "Regret is unprofessional?" They kept me for five months in a room with no air. They tortured me and I protected your secrets. I protected you. But they made me suffer and suffer and suffer. You betrayed me. So, I had only one thing left. My cyanide capsule in my back left molar. You remember, right? So, I broke the tooth and bit into the capsule. It... burned all my insides, but I didn't die. Life clung to me like a disease. And then I understood why I had survived. I needed to look in your eyes one last time.

    [Silva begins caressing Bond's neck]

    James Bond: Are you sure this is about M?

    Raoul Silva: It's about her... and you, and me. You see, we are the last two rats. We can either eat each other... mmm... or eat everyone else.

    [Silva strokes Bond's neck]

    Raoul Silva: How you're trying to remember your training now.

    [Silva smiles]

    Raoul Silva: What's the regulation to cover this?

    [Silva strokes both of Bond's upper legs]

    Raoul Silva: Well, first time for everything.

    [Bond smiles]

    Raoul Silva: Yes?

    James Bond: What makes you think this is my first time?

  • M: Mr. Silva, you're going to be transferred to Belmarsh Prison, where you will be remanded in custody, until the Crown Prosecution Service deem you fit to stand trial...

    M: Your name is on a memorial wall of the very building you attacked. I will have it struck off. Soon your past will be as nonexistent as your future. I'll never see you again.

  • Raoul Silva: [about M] Everyone, listen to me. Don't you dare touch her. She's mine!

  • Raoul Silva: You caught me... Now, here's your prize. The latest thing from my local toy store. It's called... radio.

  • [after Bond blows up Skyfall to kill a majority of Silva's men and destroy Silva's helicopter]

    Raoul Silva: [to his two surviving men] Just make sure Bond's dead!

    Raoul Silva: [referring to M] Now it's me and her...

  • Raoul Silva: You know what it does to you, hydrogen cyanide?

    [prises out his upper jaw to show M]

  • [repeated line]

    Raoul Silva: Think on your sins.
