Quotes from the Movie Joe Versus the Volcano

So I'm not sick? Except for this terminal disease?

Joe Banks

I mean, who am I? That's the real question, isn't it? Who am I? Who are you? What other questions are there? What other questions are there, really? If you want to understand the universe, embrace the universe, the door to the universe is you!

Joe Banks

I bribed them to sing a song that would drive us insane and make our hearts swell and burst. If you have a choice between killing yourself and doing something you're scared of doing, why not take the leap and do the thing you're scared of doing?

Joe Banks

Dear God, whose name I do not know - thank you for my life. I forgot how BIG... thank you. Thank you for my life.

Joe Banks

Take me... to the volcano!

Joe Banks

My father says that almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to. He says that only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement.

I've always kept clear of my father's stuff ever since I got out on my own. And now he's pulling me back in. He knew I wanted this boat and he used it and he got me working for him, which I swore I would never do. I feel ashamed because I had a price. He named it and now I know that about myself. And I could treat you like I did back out on the dock, but that would be me kicking myself for selling out, which isn't fair to you. Doesn't make me feel any better. I don't know what your situation is but I wanted you to know what mine is not just to explain some rude behavior, but because we're on a little boat for a while and... I'm soul sick. And you're going to see that.

You mean you were diagnosed with something called a brain cloud and didn't ask for a second opinion?

Patricia Graynamore

It's always gonna be something with you, isn't it Joe?

Patricia Graynamore

Yeah, Harry, but can he do the job? I know he can get the job, but can he do the job? I'm not arguing that with you. I'm not arguing that with you. I'm not arguing that with you.

Frank Waturi

Do you think I feel good? Nobody feels good. After childhood, it's a fact of life. I feel rotten. So what? I don't let it bother me. I don't let it interfere with my job.

Frank Waturi

No. No. You were wrong. He was wrong. Who said that? I didn't say that. If I had said that, I would've been wrong. I would've been wrong, Harry, isn't that right?

Frank Waturi

You have some time left, Mr. Banks. You have some life left. My advice to you is: live it well.

Frank Waturi

Well, does it take more guts to twice traverse a staircase in a burning building, or to make a one-time leap into a volcano? Damned if I know, Kimosabe. All I know is when you're making those kind of calls, you're up in the high country. Marshall: You're coming into focus, kid

You're coming into focus, kid

Marshall

I have no response to that.

Angelica Graynamore

I have no response to that.

Angelica Graynamore

I am completely untrustworthy... I'm a flibbertigibbet.

We are the children of children and we live as we are shown.
