The Monster Quotes:

  • Igor: What is this?

    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Schwartzwalder Kirschtorte.

    The Monster: [off-screen] MMMMMMM!

    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Oh, do you like it? I'm not partial to desserts myself, but this is excellent.

    Igor: Who are you talking to?

    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: To you. You just made a yummy sound, so I thought you liked the dessert.

    Igor: I didn't make a yummy sound, I just asked you what it is.

    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: But you did. I just heard it.

    Igor: It wasn't me.

    Inga: It wasn't me.

    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Well, now look here. If it wasn't you, and it wasn't you...

    [he asks himself]

    The Monster: [off-camera] Mmmmmm!

  • The Monster: For as long as I can remember people have hated me. They looked at my face and my body and they ran away in horror. In my loneliness I decided that if I could not inspire love, which is my deepest hope, I would instead cause fear. I live because this poor half-crazed genius, has given me life. He alone held an image of me as something beautiful and then, when it would have been easy enough to stay out of danger, he used his own body as a guinea pig to give me a calmer brain and a somewhat more sophisticated way of expressing myself.

  • Conor: Your stories never made sense to me.

    Conor: So what do I do?

  • The Monster: Here is the end of the tale.

    Conor: I'm afraid.

    The Monster: Of course you are afraid.It will be hard, it will be more than hard. But you will make it through, Conor O'Malley.

    Conor: You'll stay?

    The Monster: I will be right here.

    Conor: [having a nightmare] Mama! Mama!

    Conor: [waking] How does the story begin?

    Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein: Your dream of power is over, Bohmer. You didn't realize his blood is the same type as Kettering's, but not the same as Ygor's. It will not feed the sensory nerves.

    The Monster: Bohmer! You played me a trick! What good is a brain without eyes to see? What good is a brain without eyes?
