Rupert Burns Quotes in Bicentennial Man (1999)
Rupert Burns Quotes:
Rupert Burns: What do they say?
Andrew Martin: That you can lose yourself. Everything. All boundaries. All time. That two bodies can become so mixed up, that you don't know who's who or what's what. And just when the sweet confusion is so intense you think you're gonna die... you kind of do. Leaving you alone in your separate body, but the one you love is still there. That's a miracle. You can go to heaven and come back alive. You can go back anytime you want with the one you love.
Rupert Burns: And you want to experience that?
Andrew Martin: Oh, yes, please.
Rupert Burns: So do I.
[Andrew has transfused blood into his system]
Rupert Burns: Galatea, my dear, where are we?
Galatea: The transfusion is almost complete.
Rupert Burns: Is that so?
Rupert Burns: Just goes to show you, Andrew - somebody becomes a human being, sooner or later, they do something monumentally stupid.
Andrew Martin: You've been a great example, Rupert. How quickly will the blood degrade my system?
Rupert Burns: Oh, I don't know. You exercise, eat right, I'd say 30, 40 years.
Andrew Martin: That's a little vague, chief. You don't know exactly how long I'll last?
Rupert Burns: Sorry.
[puts his hand on Andrew's shoulder]
Rupert Burns: Welcome to the human condition.
Andrew Martin: What a piece of fecal matter.
Rupert Burns: Shit.
Andrew Martin: Excuse me?
Rupert Burns: What a piece of shit.
Andrew Martin: I know that.
Rupert Burns: No, that's what you say when you're frustrated. You say, "piece of shit."
Andrew Martin: "Piece of shit"?
Rupert Burns: Yes, but with feeling.
Andrew Martin: Oh. What a piece of shit.
Rupert Burns: More.
Andrew Martin: What a piece of shit!
Galatea: [Loudly] If I only had a heart! Picture me a balcony
Andrew Martin: [Irritated] Do you have an impact drill?
Rupert Burns: Yeah. Over on a rack.
Andrew Martin: Thank you.
[Goes offscreen and starts the drill as Galatea screams]
