Viktor Quotes in xXx (2002)
Viktor: Find him fast. Kill him slow.
Singe: For years, we've been trying to combine the bloodlines. And for years, we've failed. It was useless. Even at the cellular level, our species seemed destined to destroy each other. Yet the key, we knew... was to locate the rarest of bloodlines... a direct descendant of Alexander Corvinus... Hungarian, a warlord... who came to power in the early seasons of the fifth century. Just in time to watch a plague ravage his village. He alone survived. Somehow, his body was able to change the disease... mold it to his benefit. He became the first true immortal. And years later, he fathered at least two children... who inherited the same trait.
Viktor: The sons of the Corvinus clan. One bitten by bat, one by wolf... one to walk the lonely road of mortality as a human. It's a riduculous legend, nothing more.
Singe: That may be... but our species do have a common ancestor.
Viktor: There is a decendant of Corvinus lying there
[points to Marcus' grave]
Viktor: ... not three feet from you.
Singe: Yes. But he's already a Vampire. We needed a pure source... untainted. An exact duplicate of the original virus. The Corvinus strain itself, which we learned... was hidden away in the genetic code of his human descendants... and passed along in its dormant form... down through the ages to Michael Corvin. His blood allows for a perfect union between our species.
Viktor: There can be no such union. And to speak of it is heresy.
Singe: We'll see. Once Lucian has injected him...
Viktor: Lucian is dead.
Singe: According to whom?
[Kraven has left]
Viktor: [to Selene] I can assure you my child... Kraven will pay with his life.
Singe: Soon this house will lie in ruins.
Selene: Not before you.
Singe: No, wait. Wait. You and you alone will know the truth of this. If Lucian was able to get his hands on the blood of a Pure-Born... a powerful elder like Amelia... or yourself
[motions to Viktor]
Singe: ... and inject it along with Michael's blood...
Viktor: [Whispers] Abomination.
Singe: Half-Vampire... Half-Lycan... but stronger than both!
Selene: It wasn't the Lycans. It was you. How could you bear my trust knowing that you killed my family?
Viktor: Yes, I have taken from you but I have given so much more. Is it not a fair trade for life I have granted you? The gift of immortality?
Selene: And the life of your daughter? Your own flesh and blood?
Viktor: I loved my daughter. But the abomination growing in her womb was a betrayal of me and the coven. I did what was necessary to protect the species. As I am forced to do yet again.
Viktor: Your incompetence is becoming most... *taxing*.
Viktor: What's... this... *ruckus*?
Viktor: [Selene enters Viktor's chamber and kneels before him] Come closer, my child.
Selene: I've been lost without you, my Lord; constantly hounded by Kraven and his never-ending infatuation.
Viktor: [chuckles] It is the oldest story in the book; he desires the one thing he cannot have.
Viktor: You know why I have been awakened, servant?
Kraven: No, my lord, but I will soon find out.
Viktor: You mean - when you find her?
Kraven: Yes, my lord.
Viktor: You must let her come to me. We have much to discuss, Selene and I. She has shown me a great many disturbing things. Things that will be *dealt* with soon enough. This covern has grown weak, decadent. Perhaps I should have left someone else in charge of my affairs.
Viktor: Still, her memories are chaotic. There is no sense of time.
Kraven: Please, my lord, let me summon assistance. You are in need of rest.
Viktor: I have rested enough. What you will do is summon Marcus.
Kraven: But he still slumbers, my lord. Amelia and the council members are arriving tomorrow night to awaken Marcus - not you, my lord. You have been awakened a full century ahead of schedule.
Viktor: Now tell me, why have you come to believe that Lucian still lives?
Selene: But I've given you all the proof you need.
Viktor: Incoherent thoughts and images, nothing more - which is precisely why the awakening is performed by an elder. You do not possess the neccesary *skills*!
Selene: But I did see Lucian, I shot him, you must believe me.
Viktor: The chain has never been broken, not once, not in fourteen centuries, not since we elders first began to leapfrog through time - one awake, two aleep - that's the way of it. It is Marcus' time to reign, not mine!
Selene: But I had no choice, the coven is in danger and Michael is the key...
Viktor: [snaps head loudly] Ah, yes... the lycan.
Selene: How can you trust him over me?
Viktor: Because he's not the one who has been tainted by an animal.
Viktor: There is a good reason why these rules were created, and they are the only reason we have survived this long!
[William has been shot through his limbs by chains, and dragged to the ground. Marcus comes back unexpectedly.]
Marcus: He was not to be harmed. Place him in my charge, as we agreed, or you will pay for your deceit.
Viktor: And you will learn your place. Your sympathy for this beast is foolish. Your brother is entirely beyond control. It will be done *my* way.
Marcus: You know well the consequences if your murder me. Or William.
Viktor: If you so much as speak his name again you will have chosen that future for him.
[Marcus looks to his sides - Viktor's warriors have their crossbows poised at him.]
Marcus: What is thy will... my lord?
Viktor: Imprisonment for all time. Far from you.
Viktor: You defiled my daughter...
Lucian: I loved her!
Viktor: You killed her!
Viktor: [Noticing Raze fighting being bitten by a Lycan] Do you not realize that what I am giving you is a gift?
Raze: It's a curse!
Viktor: [Catches Lucian's eyes looking at Sonja] You are credit to your race. Do you know how to remain so? Keep your eyes on the ground.
Viktor: I wanted to believe your lies, but I knew it could not be true, not my own daughter. How could you?
Sonja: Father... I love him.
Viktor: Baa... you have betrayed me! To be with an animal! I loved you more than anything!
[to his guards]
Viktor: She does not leave this room!
Viktor: I should have crushed you under my heel the day you were born.
Lucian: Yes, you should have.
[Rams his sword down Viktor's throat]
Lucian: But you didn't.
Viktor: [to Sonja] Without the loyalty between us... We are no better than the beasts at our door.
Viktor: I gave you your life.
Lucian: You gave me chains.
Viktor: I thought you would have learned by now after all these years; you cannot have one without the other.
Death Dealer: My lord, your daughter has escaped.
Viktor: [sighs] Ah, of course she has.
Viktor: It occurs to me that I have been thoughtless... so deep in my own anguish at Lucian's betrayal that I gave no thought... to your feelings.
Sonja: My feelings?
Viktor: They worm their way into our lives and we forget the travesty of their birth. I myself had tenderness towards Lucian, he could've been anything... a death dealer perhaps.
Sonja: Yes... perhaps.
Viktor: But he was not as we are was he?... did you help him escape?
Sonja: Help him? Of course not.
Viktor: Are you lying to me?
Sonja: There many things I have done against your will, but he is a Lycan.
Viktor: I'm sorry my dear.
[kisses her forehead]
Viktor: but you leave me no choice
[bites her neck]
Coloman: He is much of a disease as William's Pestilence. You need to bring your pet back.
Viktor: Thank you Coloman, The Obvious escaped me! I do not need to lift a finger, Lucian will return of his own free will. I have something he wants
Viktor: [after killing a complaining Nobleman] Would anyone else like to be heard?
Viktor: Killing me won't save your precious lycan!
Sonja: Please call off your men, for the sake of your grandchild!
Sonja: [Places Viktor's hand up to her stomach] A miracle father. The union of the bloodlines!
Viktor: [Disgusted with her revealing her pregnancy] I curse the day your mother gave her life to bring you into this world.
Viktor: [while pointing at her stomach and pulling out a concealed dagger] That thing inside you is a monstrosity!
Viktor: [Places the dagger up to her throat] This is over!
Viktor: [to his men about Lucian] Remove him!
Lucian: Sonja! No! No! Noooo!
[voice fades away]
Viktor: [to Sonja] Do you understand what you've done? Tonight was never about you. It was about him! I could've handed Lucian over to the council and they'd never need know about your indiscretion. But after this? Never!
Viktor: You know you're screwed when even the rabbits won't fuck.
Sam: Viktor! Fall back!
Viktor: No! No more running!
Alain Lefevre: It's good to see an old face. Even as ugly as yours.
Viktor: [smirks] Still a comedian.
Viktor: Do you know why I, Viktor Taransky, two-time Academy Award nominated director...
Elaine: Viktor, that was short subjects.
Viktor: ...overseeing the most cherished movie project of my entire career, am walking around with - look, look, look - pockets full of these... things?
Elaine: Well, I have a feeling you're gonna tell me.
Viktor: I'm gonna tell ya why. Because Miss Nicola Anders, supermodel with a SAG card, has it written in her contract that all cherry Mike and Ike's be removed from her candy dish, along with strict instructions that any room she walks into must have seven packs of cigarettes waiting for her, three of them open. That there be a personal Jacuzzi within eighty paces of her dressing room, and that any time she travels, her nanny must fly with her, first class.
Elaine: So? What's wrong with that?
Viktor: Elaine, she doesn't have children.
Viktor: You know, it's easier to fool a hundred thousand people than just one.
Viktor: Creative differences? The difference is, you're not creative.
Viktor: You made me, but I made you first.
Viktor: A star is digitized. You know what this means? We have stepped into a new dimension. Our ability to manufacture fraud now exceeds our ability to protect it.
Viktor: She killed you, Hank, and now she's killing me. She's a serial killer.
Chief Detective: Can you tell us why you're disposing of the body of a woman that doesn't exist?
Viktor: Well it's not her body. It's it's it's her body... of work.
Viktor: The only real truth is the work.
Viktor: [to Simone] You're more authentic than all the people who worship you, and that's the problem you're lookin' at... the real fraud. I told myself this was all about the work. But if that were the truth, it wouldn't matter to me that you got all the attention, and it does; it does. I'm sorry, Simone. Here I was trying to convince the whole world you existed, but what I was really trying to do was convince them that I exist.
[to a group of reporters]
Viktor: Simone appears only when I want her to appear.
Viktor: I made her.
Elaine: No, Viktor. She made YOU.
Viktor: She's indestructible.
Viktor: I did it. Tell them they can fry me. I DID IT! It was premeditated! I strangled her... I bludgeoned her... I set her on fire, and then I killed her! I did it!
Simone: You're gonna get in a lot of trouble, Mr Taransky.
Viktor: Why do you have to bring that up?
Production Assistant: Uh, Mr. Taransky, she's...
Viktor: She's walking? Don't tell me she's walking. She can't walk!
[heads off running]
Viktor: Our ability to manufacture fraud now exceeds our ability to detect it.
Simone: You see Viktor and I are both very concerned about what kind of world our new son Chip is going to grow up in. Aren't you Viktor?
Viktor: Oh, yes.
Viktor: This is a classic case of technology in search of an artist.
Viktor: [to a Simone poster] You bitch! I will crush you.
Viktor: [when he's locked up in jail for something he didn't do] I've had enough of this horseshit.
Viktor: [to Angel] One day... one day things will be different. We can go away from this place. This is why I do all of this. So we can be together.
Viktor: [to his friend who wants to become a priest] When your were little you belived in Santa Claus, now you belive in God.
Anders: Ah, when creation shows so much beauty, how radiant must be the source!
Hitch Hiking Sara: [to the Professor and Marianne] He is going to be a minister and Anders a doctor.
Viktor: Reciting poetry is against our agreement not to discuss God or science on the trip.
Hitch Hiking Sara: It was beautiful.
Viktor: How can anyone today study to become a minister!
Anders: Your rationalism is as dry as dust.
Viktor: I say that modern man...
Anders: I say that...
Viktor: Believes in only himself and his biological death.
Anders: Modern man is a figment of your imagination. Man regards death with horror.
Viktor: Religion for the people. Opium for the aching limb.
Hitch Hiking Sara: How *sweet* they both are! I always believe with the one I spoke to last.
Viktor: [reading] One must learn to live. I practice every day. My biggest obstacle is I don't know who I am. I grope blindly. If anyone loves me as I am I may dare at last to look at myself. For me, that possibility is fairly remote.
Viktor: I'd like to tell her just for once that she is loved whole-heartedly but I can't say it in such a way that she'd believe me. I can't find the right words.
Viktor: My father said, men will be more efficient if they have hammers and screwdrivers instead of fingers.
