Quotes from the Movie Bicentennial Man

To get to the other side. Ah, why is that funny?

Andrew

Sir, is everything all right?

Andrew

Umm. They've both gone now, Andrew. Well, things change, things always change. People move on. It's as it should be. But, what I realized today is that I'll never stop missing them.

Sir

Sir? One is still here.

Andrew

And one is glad of that Andrew. Thank you.

Sir

It couldnít be more clear if you spit in my face.

Portia

I canít. I donít have a Mucous gland.

Andrew Martin

What do they say?

Rupert Burns

That you can lose yourself. Everything. All boundaries. All time. That two bodies can become so mixed up, that you don't know who's who or what's what. And just when the sweet confusion is so intense you think you're gonna die... you kind of do. Leaving you alone in your separate body, but the one you love is still there. That's a miracle. You can go to heaven and come back alive. You can go back anytime you want with the one you love.

Andrew Martin

And you want to experience that?

Rupert Burns

Oh, yes, please.

Andrew Martin

I've always tried to make sense of things. There must be some reason I am as I am. As you can see, Madame Chairman, I am no longer immortal.

Andrew Martin

You have arranged to die?

President Marjorie Bota

In a sense I have. I am growing old, my body is deteriorating, and like all of you, will eventually cease to function. As a robot, I could have lived forever. But I tell you all today, I would rather die a man, than live for all eternity a machine.

Andrew Martin

Why do you want this?

President Marjorie Bota

To be acknowledged for who and what I am, no more, no less. Not for acclaim, not for approval, but, the simple truth of that recognition. This has been the elemental drive of my existence, and it must be achieved, if I am to live or die with dignity.

Andrew Martin

Mister Martin, what you are asking for is extremely complex and controversial. It will not be an easy decision. I must ask for your patience while I take the necessary time to make a determination of this extremely delicate matter.

President Marjorie Bota

And I await your decision, Madame Chairman, thank-you for your patience. [turns to Portia and whispers] I tried.

Andrew Martin

Will every human being that I care for just... leave?

Andrew Martin

In the words of the great Andrew Martin, "One is glad to be of service".

Galatea

[looking to Andrew] See you soon.

Portia
