Valeria Quotes in Conan the Barbarian (1982)
Valeria: Do you want to live forever?
Subotai: The old man says the Mountain of Power is hollow. Thulsa Doom is in the mountain.
Valeria: What else does he say?
Subotai: That in the back of the mountain there's a gorge. Many caves. A good thief could get in there, steal the princess, and be off before she's missed in the darkness.
Valeria: Good thieves could do that, but not vengeful ones.
[looks at Conan]
Subotai: [turning to Conan, who's been sharpening his sword the entire time] Only the girl. We kill Thulsa Doom another day. Agreed?
Subotai: [Conan just keeps sharpening] Conan!
[Conan stops, glances at him then Valeria, then continues without a word]
Conan: You're not a guard!
Valeria: Neither are you!
Subotai: We're thieves! Ha! Like yourself. Come to climb the tower.
Valeria: You don't even have a rope! Ha! Two fools who laugh at death. Do you know what horrors lie beyond that wall?
Valeria: Then you go first.
Valeria: All the gods, they cannot sever us. If I were dead and you were still fighting for life, I'd come back from the darkness. Back from the pit of hell to fight at your side.
Valeria: Let's take what we have while we live. I have never had so much as now. All my life I've been alone. Many times I've faced my death with no one to know. I would look into the huts and the tents of others in the coldest dark and I would see figures holding each other in the night. And I always passed by. You and I, we have warmth. That's so hard to find in this world. Please. Let someone else pass by in the night. Let us take the world by the throat and make it give us what we desire.
Valeria: All my life I've been alone. Many times I've faced death with no one to know. I would look into the huts and the tents of others in the coldest dark and I would see figures holding each other in the night. But I always passed by.
Valeria: [dying in Conan's arms] Kiss me. Let me breathe my last breath into your mouth.
Valeria: I'm so cold! So... cold. Keep me... warm... keep... me... warm...
Valeria: To the hell fires with Thulsa Doom. He's evil; a sorcerer who can summon demons. His followers' only purpose is to die in his service. Thousands of them.
Det Sgt. Bung: This ear was found in Slocombe woods.
Valeria: What. This ear?
Det Sgt. Bung: Yes, that there.
Det Sgt. Bung: I came here to perform a duty!
Valeria: Well, get on with it! I haven't got all night, you know.
Valeria: [after unexpectedly kissing Det. Sergeant Bung] Forgive me, I just *had* to do that!
Det Sgt. Bung: That's all right miss. We're here to be of service to the public.
Dr. Watt: What time is it?
Valeria: [Looks at her wristwatch] Just past December.
Dr. Watt: I told you not to wake me up 'til the beginning of March!
Dr. Watt: Oh this is awful, I wish I was dead.
Valeria: But Orlando, you are dead.
Dr. Watt: So I am, what a life.
Valeria: Why don't we do what they did to your friend Dracula, drive a spike through his heart.
Dr. Watt: No , I don't really feel like driving tonight.
Drunk Man in Strip Club: Hey, wait a minute. This is for you. $400. But you already know that. I'm talking to you!
Valeria: Let me go!
[Valeria slaps him]
Drunk Man in Strip Club: Fucking bitch!
Ed: Why don't you chill, man? She's no pro.
Valeria: It's okay. I can handle it. It's okay.
Drunk Man in Strip Club: This dickless faggot more your type, Valeria?
Valeria: Fuck off, Gilberto.
Drunk Man in Strip Club: You think you have the balls for this girl? I ask you something. You deaf?
Ed: What the fuck's your problem, man?
Ed: [pulls out a knife and cuts Ed] oh shit!
[Valeria gets a bat and hits Drunk Man in the head and knocks him out]
Valeria: [Valeria now tends to Ed's wound in the back of the bar] That was pretty stupid. At least now you have a great story to tell your friends.
Ed: What? That I got my ass kicked?
Valeria: No. How you came to the aid of a poor and defenseless woman.
Ed: Yeah, right. If it ever gets boring around here, you could bat cleanup for the Astros.
Valeria: You know, my ex-husband, he hated the fact that I could handle myself.
Ed: Let me guess. That's why he's your ex.
Valeria: I left him and I moved here to Manzanita.
Ed: Can I buy you a drink later?
Valeria: So you're not afraid of strong woman?
Ed: Only if she's not swinging a bat at me.
Ed: Hola. Una mas cerveza, por favor.
Valeria: 'Fabor'. the V is pronounced like a B. 'Fabor. Cerbeza'.
Ed: Sorry. My Spanish sucks.
Valeria: At least you can order a beer at a strip club.
Valeria: Let's dance, this one is good.
Valeria: Later on I won't wanna dance. I would like to do some "little things".
Valeria: Come on really, let's dance. Later on I can take care of your feet too.
Daniel: I'll be back around two, okay, hon?
Valeria: If you never come back it's okay too, bastard.
Volscian Lieutenant: How not your own desires?
Coriolanus: No sir, 'twas never my desire yet to trouble the poor with begging.
Volscian Lieutenant: You must think, if we give you any thing, we hope to gain by you.
Coriolanus: Well then, I pray, your price of the consulship?
Emsemble: The price is to ask it kindly.
Coriolanus: [With resentful sarcasm] Kindly? Madam, I pray... let me have it!
[Snaps his fingers]
Coriolanus: I have wounds to show you, which shall be yours in private.
[Looks to citizen]
Coriolanus: Your good voice, sir. What say you? A match, sir. So there's in all two worthy voices begged.
[Citizen walks away]
[Another citizen approaches]
Coriolanus: Pray you now, if it may stand with the tune of your voices that I may be consul, I have here the customary gown.
Ensemble: You have deserved nobly of your country and you have not deserved nobly.
Coriolanus: Your enigma?
Ensemble: You have been a scourge to your enemies, a rod to her friends. You have not, indeed, loved the common people.
Coriolanus: You should account me the more virtuous that I have not been common in my love. I will, sir, flatter my sworn brother, the people, to earn a dearer estimation of them. 'Tis a condition they account gentle. And since wisdom of their choice is rather to have my hat than my heart I will practice the insinuating nod and be off to them most counterfeitly. Indeed, I may be consul.
Valeria: You have received many wounds for your country.
Coriolanus: I will not not seal your knowledge with showing them.
[Plucks the voucher sarcastically]
Coriolanus: I will make much of your voices, and so trouble you no further.
[Coriolanus and citizen laugh, he with contention]
Coriolanus: Most sweet voices! Better it is to die, better to starve, than crave the hire which first we do deserve. Why in this wolfish toge should I stand here to beg of Hob and Dick that does appear, their needless vouches? Custom calls me to it. What custom wills, in all things should we do it. The dust on antique time would lie unswept and mountainous error be too highly heaped for truth to overpeer. Rather than feel it so, let the high office and the honour go to the one that would do thus.
[Coriolanus picks up Brutus and tosses him from the podium]
Coriolanus: For the mutable, rank-scented many, let them regard me as I do not flatter, and therein behold themselves. I say again, in soothing them, we nourish against our senate the cockle of rebellion, insolence, sedition, which we ourselves have ploughed for, sowed, and scattered by mingling *them* with *us*, the honoured numbered, who lack not virtue, no, nor power, but that which they have given to beggars.
Menenius: Well, not more!
Valeria: We beg you, no more words, pray.
Coriolanus: How now, no more? As for my country, I have shed my blood, not fearing outward force, so shall my lungs coin words till their decay against those measles, which we disdain, should tatter us, yet sought the very way to catch them.
Brutus: You speak of the people as if you were a god to punish.
Sicinia: 'Twere well we let the people know it.
Menenius: What, what? His choler?
Coriolanus: Choler! Were I as patient as the midnight sleep, by Jove, 'twould be my mind.
Sicinia: It is a mind that *shall* remain a poison where it is, not a poison any further.
Coriolanus: 'Shall remain'? Hear you this Triton of the minnows? Mark you hear her absolute 'shall'?
Cominius: 'Twas from the canon.
Coriolanus: 'Shall'? O good but most unwise patricians. Why, you grave but reckless senators have you thus given...
[Coriolanus drops to the floor, picking up vouchers]
Coriolanus: ...Hydra here to choose an officer that with peremptory 'shall', being but the horn and noise of the monster's, wants not spirit say she'll turn your current in a ditch, and make your channels hers? If she have power, then vail your ignorance. If none, awake your dangerous lenity. If you are learned, be not as common fools. If you are not, let them have cushions by you.
[Coriolanus throws the vouchers at Sicinia]
