Trevor Goodchild Quotes in Æon Flux (2005)


Trevor Goodchild Quotes:

  • [Æon, looking for an explanation, hands Trevor the photo she found in his lab. He takes it from her without a word and sets off]

    Æon Flux: Trevor... the name you called me?

    Trevor Goodchild: ...Catherine.

    Æon Flux: That was my name...

    Trevor Goodchild: You were my wife. We had a life together just like anybody else...

    Æon Flux: [grabbing his hand] Wait! You need to tell me!

    Trevor Goodchild: I lost you during the disease and you couldn't be brought back. I've lived and died seven times since then, and each time I taught myself about you. You were an idea I kept alive, something I had to imagine. But when I saw you, what I felt was real, and I knew you, I remembered you. What we had together has survived all that time...

    Æon Flux: ...and I was looking for you.

    Trevor Goodchild: ...and I've been waiting.

    Æon Flux: We were different people.

    Trevor Goodchild: We were.

    Æon Flux: Those people are gone...

    Trevor Goodchild: ...but something in them came back.

  • Æon Flux: You cloned her...

    Trevor Goodchild: I cloned everybody.

  • [Æon plans to destroy the Relico]

    Trevor Goodchild: This isn't the answer, Æon! There's no guarantee I can find the cure again! Cloning is all we have!

    Æon Flux: It's not enough! Our minds are unravelling and every time you bring us back it gets worse!

    Trevor Goodchild: If you do this, we end!

    Æon Flux: We're meant to die - that's what makes anything about us matter. Living like this is torture - we're just ghosts...

    Trevor Goodchild: That's not how I feel - not now...

  • Trevor Goodchild: There was a complication when we cured the industrial disease. The vaccine had an unintended side effect: sterility. Only one more generation of our species could survive. It was a desperate time. Cloning had never been used on humans, successfully. Now when a person dies, their DNA is recycled. Oren and I built the Relico to store DNA and to conceal the cloning process. The Keeper finds a suitable couple and using food additives, we induce a chemical pregnancy. When a woman comes in for an exam, we implant a cloned embryo. From there things happen naturally. In nine months, a citizen who died is reborn. For seven generations, Oren and I have cloned ourselves, taught ourselves, so that I could keep trying to find a cure... while we all live on.

    Æon Flux: That's what we are? Copies?

    Trevor Goodchild: We're more than that! It wasn't supposed to be permanent - I've been trying to cure the infertility. Una was part of my test groups. Oren lied to me - he told me her test had failed, like the others. But she had become pregnant. He killed all my subjects, your sister included.

    Æon Flux: He killed her because he was pregnant...

    Trevor Goodchild: Una didn't know it, but her baby would have been one of the first new children in 400 years. Oren's changed - he doesn't want to go back, he doesn't want a cure...

    Æon Flux: He wants to live forever.

  • Trevor Goodchild: [to Aeon, in her cell] Catherine?

    [she wakes up and take in the cell, before Trevor appears]

    Trevor Goodchild: Aeon?

    Æon Flux: You called me by another name earlier.

    Trevor Goodchild: I did and you let me live.

    Æon Flux: [provokingly] Give me my gun. We'll try it again.

    Trevor Goodchild: [smirks] Maybe later.

    Æon Flux: What was that name?

    Trevor Goodchild: You know me, don't you?

    Æon Flux: [raged] No!

    Trevor Goodchild: Do you know who you are?

    Æon Flux: I know I came here to kill you.

    Trevor Goodchild: That's why you're in a cell. But we're both still alive for a reason.

    [turns to walk away]

    Trevor Goodchild: I don't know what this is... but it's good to see you.

  • Æon Flux: I know I came here to kill you...

    Trevor Goodchild: That's why you're in a cell.

  • Trevor Goodchild: This is a war, and people on all sides die.

  • Trevor Goodchild: [walking outside] I'm getting worried about you, Oren. This edge you've taken. Displays like that aren't helpful to us.

    Oren Goodchild: [shrugs] I believe in protecting what we've created. I own't apologize for that.

    Trevor Goodchild: This was created to allow me to do my work. I can't do that if you can't control yourself. Understood?

    Oren Goodchild: Yes, it is.

    Trevor Goodchild: And what of the test results?

    Oren Goodchild: [lying] All negative... sorry.

    Trevor Goodchild: Find me a new test group by morning.

    [starts to walk away]

    Oren Goodchild: Maybe it's time to give up on the tests, Trevor. We're living the solution already. This is perfection. Why can't you just embrace it?

    Trevor Goodchild: You see what's happening to people. You know how desperate this has become.

    Oren Goodchild: It can be controlled. Contained.

    Trevor Goodchild: I think your forgetting that this was all meant to be temporary.

    Oren Goodchild: You've always said that, but why should it be?

    Trevor Goodchild: Because it's wrong.

    Oren Goodchild: Things change... but I know you won't.

    Trevor Goodchild: [smiling] You know me.

    Oren Goodchild: Been your brother a long time.

    Oren Goodchild: You're right about that.

  • Trevor Goodchild: [message to Aeon, with shocks] Aeon. I'm sorry for the pain. It's not safe to talk in the open. Nothing's as it seems... You had your chance, why did you hesitate?... You know where to find me.

  • Æon Flux: [in Trevor's quarters, coming from the shadows] Why am I here?

    Trevor Goodchild: [turns to face her] I needed to see you again.

    Æon Flux: [begins circling the room] You killed my sister!

    Trevor Goodchild: I didn't know anything about it... I'm sorry.

    Æon Flux: And the excuses you?

    Trevor Goodchild: No. But this is a war. People on all sides die.

    Æon Flux: She shouldn't have. She had nothing to do with this.

    Trevor Goodchild: Everyone's involved in this.

    Æon Flux: [furious] She wasn't.

    [looks down at her gun]

    Æon Flux: I don't need that to kill you.

    Trevor Goodchild: [smiles] But it would be easier, wouldn't it?... Everything changed when I saw you... I know you and you know me.

    Æon Flux: [grabs up her weapon, starts walking backwards] Why do I know you? Why?

    Trevor Goodchild: [lowers her arm with his hands, advancing slowly] Why did you come back? What do you want from me?

    Æon Flux: [grabs his jacket, forcing him to the wall] What do I want? I want my sister back! I want to remember what it feels like to be a person.

    [begins kisses Trevor]

    Trevor Goodchild: [breathless] Aeon.

    Æon Flux: [shoves him away] Why do I feel this way around you?

    [begins kissing him again]

  • Freya: [about Aeon] She escaped.

    Trevor Goodchild: [amused, rubbing his neck] Why am I not surprised.

    Freya: I found her in the library. I think I wounded her.

    Trevor Goodchild: [standing] You attacked her?

    Freya: She's a Monican agent, who tried to kill you. I assumed it was obvious what I should do.

    Trevor Goodchild: Freya, I want her alive. Do you understand?

    [walkign to the door]

    Trevor Goodchild: Is Oren aware of this?

    Freya: I can't find him.

    Trevor Goodchild: Stay close.
