Selena Quotes in Supergirl (1984)
Selena: I'm considering nothing less than world domination.
Selena: Such a pretty world. I can't wait until it's all mine.
Selena: Get out of my house, Nigel, and don't come slithering back.
Nigel: Listen, Selena, I'm the only one who can save you from yourself. You *need* me.
Selena: Like an Eskimo needs a lawnmower, kiddo.
Nigel: I'm warning you, Selena. Don't be so shortsighted.
Selena: The world is at last my oyster.
Bianca: Would you mind letting Bianca in on this, you know, unexpected bit of good luck? Or whatever it is?
Selena: Bad luck. I have been chosen. The powers of darkness I think may, at long last, have come to their senses.
Nigel: I have a secret, Selena.
Selena: How exciting for you, Nigel. Best write it down before you forget it.
Nigel: After you left me there in the lurch, I saw something that should worry you greatly if you're serious about over the planet. My secret was blue and red, and it knew how to fly.
Selena: I have a secret, too, Nigel. I have the power. Now, get that through your head. Selena is through worrying. The shoe is on the other foot and it's their turn to worry, all those who mocked me when my chips were down.
Nigel: Oh, I bet they're really in for it now, eh?
Selena: Count on it.
Selena: Every time! Every time! Send a man to do a woman's job, and that's what you get. Damn her eyes. Who is she?
Bianca: Are you asking me?
Selena: I'm telling you - Find out.
Bianca: Well, sure but, you know, I think I recognize the costume.
Supergirl: You have no friends, Selena. You treat everyone as if they were put on this Earth to serve you.
Selena: More or less, I think they were. You included.
Supergirl: You've had your fun, Selena. The game is finished.
Selena: Hardly. One false step, bluebird, and even if you don't, your friends will get the point.
[Selena lowers three cages over hot spikes coming out of floor]
Jimmy Olsen: Hey, no!
Lucy Lane: I don't like this.
Jimmy Olsen: Don't worry, Lucy. Don't worry.
Supergirl: I wouldn't, if I were you.
Selena: Well, you're not me.
Selena: Goodbye, Nigel.
Bianca: It was nice talking to you, Nigel.
Selena: No, it wasn't.
Nigel: You girls are rank amateurs playing with fire.
Selena: Because we own the matches.
Nigel: I want to make a very serious proposal.
Selena: In that outfit?
Selena: Nigel, you are wonderful. Pure genius. You deserve... me. And something else.
[Selena turns him into a ragged man]
Selena: Now let's get out of this dump.
Selena: A word of advice, Nigel. If I had your skin problems, I'd stop bothering people, put a bag over my head and go live under a bridge.
Ethan: So, uh, where's the lawn at?
Selena: It dropped dead.
Bianca: I think you're blowing this thing out of proportion if you want my opinion.
Selena: No, this box is definitely getting bigger... And uglier.
Bianca: All I'm saying is, you can't go nuts over a landscape guy and a teenager in a blue suit.
Selena: She flies. Can you get that through your thick skull and into your tiny little brain, Bianca? The girl can fly.
Supergirl: Who are you?
Selena: I am Selena, Diodenes of Catania, Priestess of Sekhnet. I am the Ultimate Siren of Endor. And you, little lady, are trespassing on private property.
Selena: [points at Ethan] She means him.
Supergirl: I am Kara of Argo City, daughter of Alura and Zor-El, and I don't scare easily.
Nigel: What's going on? Hey, what's going on?
Selena: I've just outgrown you, Nigel. These things happen!
Nigel: You can't treat me like this, Selena. Without me, you'd still be reading tea leaves at Lake Tahoe.
Supergirl: The Omegahedron, Selena. I want it.
Selena: Well, then, Supergirl, you shall have it.
Selena: Don't call me "your sweetness." I am not sweet. I am Selena. And I am a bitter, bitter pill to swallow.
Selena: [about who has greater powers] I can make the sky rain coconuts with pinpoint accuracy, but I still can't control men's minds. Not with her around.
Selena: [after her magical creation barges through the walls] Next time, remind me to do this outside.
Selena: Power of Shadow, take shape. Look like a vicious dark star. Seek out that wretched young creature and destroy her wherever she... are.
Bianca: Oh, God, that's awful. That's never gonna work.
Selena: What good is a sword if it's not unleashed?
Bianca: You okay?
Bianca: You want a hacksaw or something?
Gordon Brewer: If you keep working with him, then you are no better than he is.
Selena: What would you have me do?
Gordon Brewer: Help me stop him.
Selena: Claudio is now a man consumed by hate, just like you.
Gordon Brewer: I'm not like him.
Selena: I'm trusting you with my life... and my son.
Gordon Brewer: Why are you taking care of me?
Selena: You saved my son.
Gordon Brewer: And your husband killed mine.
Michelle: Hey, remember that one time at band camp, when we licked whipped cream off each other's p...
Selena: [Interrupts Michelle] Yes, yes. I remember.
[Hannah comes from behind and breaks a bottle over Jim's head as he kisses Selena]
Selena: Hannah, it's okay! He's not infected.
Hannah: But I thought he was biting you.
Jim: Kissing. I was kissing her. Are you stoned?
Selena: It's a long story.
[Selena asks Jim what his plans are while the infection still exists]
Selena: Have you got any plans, Jim? Do you want us to find a cure and save the world or just fall in love and fuck? Plans are pointless. Staying alive is as good as it gets.
[Jim starts to walk to the deserted diner]
Selena: Where are you going?
Selena: [Jim points to the diner] We've got enough food, Jim.
Jim: We don't have any cheeseburgers.
Norwegian Pilot: [Jim, Selena, and Hannah wave to the fighter pilot in the air while standing with their 'Hello' sign, as the pilot speaks back to his command base] Naw, I didn't see anything.
Selena: Do you think he saw us this time?
[as Jim remains silent with his arms behind his head]
[Selena guesses what Jim was just thinking]
Jim: So, know what I was thinking?
Selena: You were thinking that you'll never hear another piece of original music ever again. You'll never read another book that hasn't already been written... or see a film that hasn't already been shot.
Jim: Um, that's what you were thinking.
[Jim asks Selena and Mark about the government]
Jim: What about the government?
Selena: There's no government.
Jim: Of course there's a government! There's always a government. They're in, a bunker or a plane.
Mark: No, there's no government. No police. No Army. No TV. No radio. No electricity. You're the first uninfected person we've seen in six days.
[Jim confesses to Selena that he has a headache]
Jim: I got a headache.
Jim: Yeah, it's pretty bad.
Selena: Well, why didn't you say anything before?
Jim: Well, because I didn't think you'd give a shit.
[Selena tells Jim how the infected began to spread]
Selena: It started as rioting. And right from the beginning you knew this was different, because it was happening in small villages, market towns, and then, it wasn't on the TV any more. It was in the street outside. It was coming through your windows. It was a virus, an infection. You didn't need a doctor to tell you that. It was the blood. There was something in the blood. By the time they tried to evacuate the cities, it was already too late. The infection was everywhere. The Army blockades were overrun and that's when the exodus started. The day before the TV and radio stopped broadcasting there were reports of infection in Paris and New York. We didn't hear anything more after that.
[Selena gives Hannah some valium when the soldiers prepare to take advantage of the two of them]
Selena: We're gonna eat these, Hannah, okay? Come on - You eat these. Eat these.
Hannah: Are you trying to kill me?
Selena: No, sweetheart. I'm making you not care.
[Jim tries to stop Selena from crying after the death of Frank]
Jim: Hey, don't do that. Look, Hannah is what Frank says she is, okay? She's tough, and she's strong, and she'll cope, just like I'll cope, and just like you'll cope.
Selena: I don't want her to have to fuckin' cope. I want her to be okay. When Hannah had her dad, it was okay. It was okay for them, and it was okay for us. Now, it's all just fucked.
[Jim kisses Selena on the mouth as she kisses him back]
[Jim and the group enter an abandoned grocery store filled with food and supplies]
Selena: [the group smiles] Let's shop.
[Selena tells Jim her first impression of Frank and Hannah]
Selena: They probably need us more than we need them.
[last lines, alternate ending]
Hannah: [Selena hangs over Jim's dead body, unable to revive him in the hospital] What are we gonna do now? Selena? What are we gonna do now?
Selena: We move.
[as the two girls in red dresses walk down the hospital hallway to leave]
[Jim asks Mark about his family]
Jim: Where's your family?
Mark: They're dead, like Selena's.
Selena: Yours will be dead, too.
[Selena tells Jim the infected will be coming]
Selena: More infected will be coming. They always do.
[Jim asks Selena how she knew Mark had become infected]
Jim: How did you know? I mean, how did you know he was infected?
Selena: The blood.
Jim: Yeah, but there was blood everywhere. It was on me. It was on you.
Selena: I didn't know he was infected, okay? Only he knew. I could see it in his eyes.
[Selena tells Jim how much time you have to kill a person who becomes infected]
Selena: Look, if someone gets infected you've got between ten and twenty seconds to kill them. It might be your brother, or your sister, or your oldest friend. It makes no difference. And just so you know where you stand, if it happens to you, I'll do it in a heartbeat.
[Selena and Jim make their way up the stairs of the tower block]
Selena: Do you need a break?
Jim: [Jim takes one step] Now, I do need a break, by the way.
[Selena tells Jim he needs to start thinking about himself]
Jim: [about Frank and Hannah] I think they're good people.
Selena: Good people?
Selena: Well, that's nice, but you should be more concerned about whether they're gonna slow you down.
Jim: Right, because if they slowed you down...
Selena: I'd leave them behind.
Jim: In a heartbeat.
Jim: I wouldn't.
Selena: Then you're gonna wind up getting yourself killed.
[Jim thanks Selena for saving his life]
Jim: You think I don't get it but, um, I do get it. And I know I'd be dead already, if I hadn't met you.
Jim: No, look. I mean, thank you.
Selena: And I mean, sure.
[Jim shops in the canned good section of the supermarket]
Selena: Don't take anything that needs to be cooked, okay?
Jim: I think you can eat that raw.
[Selena and Jim eat their groceries from the supermarket]
Selena: Mmm! Oh, my God! I can, like, taste the Vitamin C.
Jim: [Jim mumbles with food in his mouth] Mmm. The raisins are so moist.
Hannah: [Hannah chuckles] What did you say?
Jim: [Jim talks with his mouth full] The raisins, huh? They're still moist!
[Selena tells Jim what she's thinking]
Selena: I was thinking I was wrong.
Jim: About what?
Selena: All the death. All the shit. It doesn't really mean anything to Frank and Hannah because... well, she's got her dad, and he's got his daughter, so - I was wrong when I said that staying alive is as good as it gets.
Jim: See, that's what I was thinking.
Selena: Was it?
Jim: Hmm. You stole my thought.
Selena: [Selena kisses Jim on the cheek] Sorry.
Jim: That's okay. You can keep it.
[Jim wakes up to the sound of Frank's car horn]
Selena: [Jim holds his baseball bat] Come on, sleepyhead! Come on, Babe Ruth.
Frank: Hurry up.
Jim: [Jim gets in the car] Oh, no. Did I miss breakfast!
[Selena comments on Jim's face after he shaves]
Selena: Very spruce.
Jim: Very shredded.
[Frank asks for Selena and Jim's opinion before entering the underground tunnel]
Frank: What do you think?
Selena: It's the most direct route to the other side of the river.
Jim: No - No - No, then we should take the most indirect route. The one that's in broad daylight and that's not underground.
Frank: [Frank presses on the gas of the car] Let's just get it done.
[Selena and Hannah shop in the candy section of the supermarket]
Selena: If I never see another chocolate bar again, it will be too soon.
Selena: [as Selena grabs her favorite candy bars] 'Terry's Chocolate Orange', of course!
[Jim wakes up Selena from a deep sleep]
Jim: Hey, Selena!
Selena: [Selena grabs her machete] What? What is it?
Jim: How'd you get to sleep?
[Frank talks to Selena when they arrive to the empty Army blockade]
Frank: We have to go.
Frank: [Frank yells] Go fucking where!
[Corporal Mitchell teases Selena after taking her machete from her]
Corporal Mitchell: [Mitchell holds the machete out from his front crotch] You wanna get your hands on a really big chopper, you just come and see me.
Selena: Fuck you!
Corporal Mitchell: How about right now?
[Hannah talks to the scared Private Jones as he waits for his fellow soldiers to return]
Hannah: They've been a long time. What are you gonna do, if they don't come back? Will you be the officer if Henry is dead? Is that the way it works?
Private Jones: Shut up.
Hannah: [the lightning flashes] I don't think they are coming back. I think they've been killed.
Private Jones: I said shut up!
Selena: [Selena tries to quiet Hannah] Hannah.
Hannah: They're dead... and you're gonna be next.
[Selena and Hannah run away from the infected Mailer in the mansion]
Selena: We're gonna get out of here. Stay with it. Stay with me.
Hannah: [as Hannah is still on Valium] Don't worry. I feel fine, really.
[Selena repeatedly kisses Jim who's covered in blood]
Jim: [standing over Corporal Mitchell's dead body] Listen. Listen to me. He's still all fucked. We're gonna be okay. He's still all fucked. We're gonna be okay. I've got to explain something.
Selena: Shut up!
Jim: I've seen something. It's gonna be okay. It's gonna be okay.
[Selena tries to save Jim's life in the hospital]
Selena: Come on, Jim. Breathe! Fuckin' breathe!
[as Jim wakes up in the country]
