Sola Quotes in John Carter (2012)
Dejah Thoris: [to Tars Tarkas] Jeddak of the Tharks. I am Dejah Thoris, regent of the Royal Helium Academy of Science. My research...
Tars Tarkas: [Pushes her away to John] Your share of the spoils. Sola, tend to Virginia's property.
Sola: Yes, my Jeddak
[Holds Dejah's arms behind her back]
Dejah Thoris: [to Tars Tarkas] You know when Sab Than has conquered us, he will turn his weapon upon you!
Tars Tarkas: I know that Zodanga has found a way to defeat you. And now you seek a mighty weapon of your own. But Virginia fights for us! He will fight the Torquas in the south. The Warhoons in the north! And he will be called Dotar Sojat! "My right arms"!
John Carter: No. I don't fight for anyone.
Tars Tarkas: [to John] Virginia. You reject this honor, then I can't guarantee you the safety of your red girl.
John Carter: [Looks at Dejah being held captive by Sola] I am... Dotar Sojat.
John Carter: War's a shameful thing.
Dejah Thoris: Not when a noble cause is taken by those who can make a difference. You made a difference today, Virginia.
John Carter: Okay. See, my name is John Carter. Virginia is where I'm from.
Dejah Thoris: Where did you learn to jump that way?
John Carter: I don't know. How'd you learn to fly?
Dejah Thoris: Your ships cannot sail on light in Virginia?
John Carter: No, professor. See, our ships sail on the seas. Endless water everywhere.
Dejah Thoris: [Stares at him then begins to walk around him] Skeleton structure normal...
John Carter: What are you doing?
Dejah Thoris: [Continues to study him] It must be the density of your bones.
Dejah Thoris: Jump for me!
Sola: Enough! There will be time for playfulness later!
Dejah Thoris: I want no playfulness from him. I want his help. Explain to me how you do it. If it's a skill, teach it to Helium. Name your price.
John Carter: I'm not for hire. I've got a cave of gold of my own. Somewhere
[Begins to walk away]
Dejah Thoris: Only a madman would rave about the times of oceans!
John Carter: Is that your expert's view? I'm mad?
Dejah Thoris: Or a liar.
Sola: She's a good match for you, Dotar Sojat.
John Carter: Don't call me that.
Dejah Thoris: There are no seas on the planet.
John Carter: You said planet...
Sola: Where are you going?
Dejah Thoris: To your temple.
Sola: No! No, you cannot enter here! It is forbidden! You are not Thark!
[Dejah and John enter so she follows]
Sola: Dotar Sojat, it is forbidden. It is forbidden!
Dejah Thoris: Well, you speak for the goddess. What does she say?
John Carter: [Seeing the engraving on the temple's wall] You called me a thern. Is that what she is?
Sola: No! She is Issus. Therns are holy messengers of the goddess. In the time of oceans they walked among us, guiding us. We must not offend. Let us go!
Sola: [as they follow Dejah who is supposed to be taking them to the river Iss] Dotar Sojat. Carter! I do not think she leads us to the Iss.
John Carter: Alright then, Sola. Just play along.
John Carter: [Carter rides his lizard-horse creature closer to Dejah and suddenly grabs her rains] What do you think I'd do once I saw your city and not some river?
Dejah Thoris: What do you mean?
Sola: Cloras Anthorea, they should be at our backs by now. You lead us toward Helium!
Dejah Thoris: Once we reach there, you would see for yourself the virtue of our cause.
Dejah Thoris: Everyone thinks their cause is virtuous, professor.
[suddenly he grabs her stuff and throws her off her lizard-horse creature and he and Sola take off leaving her behind]
Dejah Thoris: What are you doing? No! John Carter! You can't!
Sola: [as they pretend to leave her] I like this plan better.
John Carter: Just wait. She'll come around.
Dejah Thoris: You mad fool! You're not from Earth! There are no Gates of Iss! I only told you what you wanted to hear so you'd get us out! Stop! I can't! I cannot marry him!
John Carter: Can't marry who?
Dejah Thoris: The Zodanga Jeddak you fought. Sab Than. He offered a truce to my father in exchange for my hand.
John Carter: Your father?
Dejah Thoris: Tardos Mors.
Sola: The Jeddak of Helium. She is a princess.
John Carter: A princess of Mars. How about that? A princess who didn't wanna get married, so she ran away.
Dejah Thoris: No.
John Carter: Is that all there is to this story?
Dejah Thoris: No! I didn't run away! I escaped!
John Carter: From what? His breath? So marry the guy and save your people.
Dejah Thoris: A life of oppression, that's not living!
[as she runs to follow them Dejah falls, Carter suddenly turns back and offers to help her up]
Dejah Thoris: If you had the means to save others, would you not take any action possible to make it so?
John Carter: No good will come out of me fightin' your war.
Dejah Thoris: I would lay down my life for Helium. Yes, I ran away. I was... afraid, weak. Maybe I should have married, but I so feared that it would somehow be the end of Barsoom. I tell you truly, John Carter of Earth, there are no Gates of Iss. They are not real.
John Carter: I'm sorry, princess. But this...
John Carter: [he shows her the medallion that brought him to Barsoom]
John Carter: This is real. And so is my cave of gold.
[he offers his hand to Dejah to help her up which she reluctantly takes]
John Carter: [as they are pursued by the Thark tribe, Carter touches Dejah's hand and has flashback to coming home after the war to find his home burned with his wife and his daughter inside]
Sola: Dotar Sojat!
Dejah Thoris: What are you doing?
John Carter: [he jumps off the lizard-horse creature] Sola, get her out of here.
Dejah Thoris: No! Carter!
John Carter: I was too late once. I won't be again.
Dejah Thoris: No! No! No! No!
[Carter tries to force Woola to flee with the women, but Woola remains, as the Thark tribe reach him, Carter leaps in the air and onto the warriors, with each slash of his sword he flashbacks to burying his wife and daughter and placing his wife's wedding ring on his hand, then the Tharks begin to overwhelm him and Carter disappears under a pile of Thark warriors]
John Carter: I claim the right of challenge!
Tal Hajus: You have no right to challenge! You are not Thark!
Tars Tarkas: He is Thark! He is Dotar Sojat!
Sola: Dotar Sojat! Dotar Sojat! Dotar Sojat!
[the crowd of Tharks start to chanting Dotar Sojat, Tal Hajus leaps towards Carter and as Carter leaps up he kills Tal Hajus in mid-air with his sword]
Jerry: It's a spaceship!
Dave: Yeah. Told you.
Ziggy: Whoa, dude. You mean... you're a beach babe from beyond?
Sola: You bet your ass, dude.
Luna: Cheer up. Boys are like from another planet anyway. Who understands them?
Sola: Yeah, can't live with them, can't disintegrate 'em with a gamma deathray.
