Shadow Quotes in The Fifth Element (1997)
Shadow: How are the stones?
Zorg: Fine... fine, just fine... I'll, I'll have the... ah... I'll have the four stones you asked for anytime now... but, but it wasn't easy. My costs... have tripled.
Shadow: Money is of... no importance. I... want... the... STONES...
Zorg: The stones... will be here... I'll see to it personally...
Shadow: I will be among you... soon.
Shadow: It's Shadow...
Zorg: Zorg here.
Shadow: Am I disturbing you?
Zorg: Oh no... no, no... I was... just... W-Where are you?
Shadow: Not far now.
Zorg: Good... good, good...
[after receiving a call from Nash in the galley]
William Strannix: Anything else you forgot to tell us about? Any other little memory losses or oversights, perhaps?
Commander Krill: No other little memory losses or oversights perhaps. There's two men, one of them's locked up. And I'll take care of him...
William Strannix: No, no, no. We'll handle it. Secure the galley. Send Cates, send Ziggs.
Shadow: You got it.
Commander Krill: This Marine's armed, Bill. I think we should send more, I'll go...
William Strannix: Don't worry about it. These guys are professionals. They can handle twenty Marines, and a hundred cooks.
[Krill found Ryback's personnel file]
Commander Krill: Ryback's file wasn't IN personnel. It was in the Captain's private cabinet. Ryback is an ex-SEAL.
Doumer: The Goddamn cook's a SEAL?
Commander Krill: Shut up and listen. "Expert in Martial Arts, Explosives, Weapons and Tactics. Silver Star, Navy Cross, Purple Heart with Cluster, and Security Clearance revoked after Panama." That means he couldn't hold any rating except that of a yeoman or a cook. How little did I know.
Shadow: We just lost two more men in the Engine Room!
William Strannix: You were told to review the personnel file on every individual on this ship.
Commander Krill: I know what I was told, but I didn't have access to the Captain's files at that *time*!
Doumer: I'll get this fucker myself!
William Strannix: Oh no, calm down. You wanna get killed?
Commander Krill: Are you an *idiot*?
Doumer: You're calling *me* an *idiot*?
Commander Krill: Yeah, I'm calling you an idiot!
William Strannix: Calm down! Get me three roving patrols, keep the man pinned below the weather deck! Move out!
Commander Krill: Stay on schedule!
Shadow: Hey, Scorpion! You fight, you kill, you rob. How the hell are you any different from us?
Scorpion: One wants to exterminate all human beings so life will be erased from this planet, right? Well, now you know how I'm different. Me, I wanna live.
Shadow: [Shadow watches Chance chase a rabbit] There goes the bunny... There goes the pup... There goes breakfast.
Shadow: [after Sassy is lost in the river] I shouldn't have made her come.
Chance: It's not your fault, she wanted to come.
Shadow: But it's my responsibility. I had a responsibility to Sassy - to love her and protect her - the same as I have to you... and to Peter. And the same as you have to Jamie.
Chance: But we didn't ask for this job.
Shadow: We didn't have to. It's built in. Has been ever since the dawn of time... when a few wild dogs took it upon themselves to watch over man, to bark when he's in danger, to run and play with him when he's happy, to nuzzle him when he's lonely. That's why they call us man's best friend.
Chance: [narrating] Looking at him that night, he seemed so wise... and ancient, like the first dog who ever walked the earth. I just hope that one day, I can be like him.
Shadow: You've learned everything you need, Chance. Now all you have to learn is how to say goodbye.
Chance: I'm such a wimp! I'm running from a cat!
Shadow: I won't tell if you won't.
Chance: Of course, this isn't your ordinary housecat. This is like Arnold Schwarzen-kitty!
Shadow: Up and at 'em, you two. I found our breakfast.
Chance: Good, I hope it's garbage
Shadow: No, even better.
Sassy: With you two gourmets, I can just imagine
Chance: Well fine, just sit here and diet.
Sassy: Are you calling me fat?
Chance: Course not, for a hippopotamus!
[Runs into a tree]
Chance: I meant to do that!
Sassy: Ha ha! Serves you right.
Chance: Remember hot dogs?
Shadow: Yeah, I wasn't much for the name, though.
Chance: I don't think they're really made of dog.
Shadow: I don't think they're made of meat!
Chance: But they taste the best when they fall in the dirt.
Chance: Are we going in circles? That tree smells familiar.
Shadow: Of course it does. It's pine.
[Chance is looking for fish in the river]
Chance: Ok, how did Sassy do it? I don't want it. I don't want it. I don't want... Ay-yi-yi!
[Pulls out a crawdad attached to his lips]
Chance: I don't want it! I don't want it! I don't want it!
Shadow: [laughing] Sassy would love to see this.
Chance: I can do better! Just give me a second chance!
Shadow: That was your second chance, Chance!
Chance: Then give me a third chance!
Shadow: Just sleep.
Chance: I can't sleep. I'm too tired to sleep.
Shadow: Chance, you're a genius!
Chance: I am not! Uh, what's a genius?
Shadow: Never mind.
Shadow: I thought you were gonna stay, pup.
Chance: Yeah, but I thought I should come along, in case you two needed protection.
Sassy: My hero! Guess I'm gonna have to stare at YOUR butt the whole way.
Shadow: Something doesn't smell right. They've been gone way too long. Much longer than they should have been. Something's really wrong.
Chance: Wake up and smell the kibble. They dumped us!
Shadow: No! It isn't true!
Chance: You were great. You were like Rin Tin Tin.
Shadow: Like who?
Chance: Rin Tin Tin. Don't you ever watch TV?
Shadow: [growls at Chance as he noses the turkey]
Chance: Oh, back off, old man! You were just jealous cos I smelled it first.
Shadow: Would a rolled up newspaper mean anything to you?
Chance: No. Why?
Chance: All right! Okay! I just wanted to... smell it.
Chance: ...to make sure it was safe for people.
Shadow: I'm keeping my eye on you, pup.
Chance: Yeah, well I'm just gonna go mingle.
Chance: [eating a shoe and talking to Shadow] Why don't you relax, Gramps?
[with mouth full]
Chance: Have yourself a shoe!
Shadow: [tuts in disgust] Pups!
Sassy: Have you any idea where that's been?
Chance: Oh, yeah. That's why I love it
Chance: I can't sleep. I'm too tired to sleep. And this place is scary. I don't like it here. It gives me the creeps.
Sassy: [trying to scare him] Oooooooohh!
Shadow: Enough, Sassy. Now sleep.
Shadow: That was good, Sassy. A full stomach sure feels good.
Chance: Yeah, you sure do serve a lot better than we do.
Sassy: [burps] Excuse me.
Shadow: [about Chance] I wonder if I could have that dog stuffed.
Shadow: I really wish i'd give that pup a good talking too.
Chance: Shadow! There's a big uh huge cat!
Shadow: Bolder dash! You're seeing things!
Shadow: Sassy, do you hear a truck?
Sassy: No, Shadow. I see a truck!
Chance: [going down a slide] Chance slides, and he's out of there!
Shadow: [following him down the slide] Chance, you're gonna kiiiiiiiilll me!
Sassy: [following them down the slide] Can someone tell me why I keep following Dumb and Dumber?
Riley: Well, this is it. Home sweet home. Hey, it's nothing fancy, but the price is right, and nobody bothers us, so you guys can stay as long as you like.
Shadow: Thanks, Riley. You're very kind.
Sassy: Right, if he's so kind, why doesn't he help us find that bridge?
Shadow: We can't leave until we find Chance.
Sassy: Why not?
Shadow: You know you miss him.
Sassy: Okay, I miss his stupid jokes, and his stupid face, and his stupid... stupidness.
Shadow: Oh, Sassy, stop it.
Sassy: And I'm stupidly starting to worry about him.
Ray: This ain't Houston, my friend. We're pretty much running things now. Our good day has come.
Shadow: You chumps ain't had a good day since the Alamo.
Shadow: You're not the only one who gets to save people around here... Come on.
