Quotes from the Movie The Happening

Hello, my name is Elliot Moore. I'm just going to talk in a very positive manner, giving off good vibes. We're just here to use the bathroom, and we're just going to leave. I hope that's okay. [Elliot touches leaf] Plastic. I'm talking to a plastic plant. I'm still doing it.

Elliot Moore

You're not interested in what happened to the bees?

Elliot Moore

You should be more interested in science, Jake. You know why? Because your face is perfect. The problem is, your face is perfect at 15. Now if you were interested in science, you would know facts like the human nose and ears grow a fraction of an inch each year. So a perfect balance of features now might not look so perfect five years from now, and might look down right whack ten years from now.

Elliot Moore

Come on, buddy. Take an interest in science. What could be the reason bees have vanished?

Elliot Moore

Nice answer, Jake. He's right. Science will come up with some reason to put in the books, but in the end it'll be just a theory. I mean, we will fail to acknowledge that there are forces at work beyond our understanding. To be a scientist, you must have a respectful awe for the laws of nature.

Elliot Moore

It's miniscule, buddy. Okay? Don't worry about it. You're going to be a heartthrob your whole life. I was just messing with you.

Elliot Moore

Why is everybody saying that?

Elliot Moore

Again with the wedding. What?

Elliot Moore

Hey, what do you mean? Where are we?

Elliot Moore

Filbert? Does anybody know where that is? Why are you giving me one useless piece of information at a time? What's going on? Hey, why would you just stop? You can't just leave us here!

Elliot Moore

I need a second...

Elliot Moore

I need a second...

Elliot Moore

I need a second okay? Just give me a second!

Elliot Moore

I need a second okay? Why can't anybody give me a goddamn second? [talks to himself] All right, be scientific, douchebag. Identify the... rules... design the experiment... careful observation, measurements, that's what I'm trying to do, interpret the experimental pattern, interpret... What if it is the plants? That group was larger than ours. This thing's been escalating all day. Smaller and smaller populations have been setting this off. They react to human stimulus. Maybe people are setting off the plants? Alma Moore: What are you saying? That guy was crazy! We have to save them!

Elliot Moore

They're already dead! What if they're targeting us as threats? This part of the field may not have been set off. Something in this field could be releasing the chemical into the air when there's too many of us together. Let's just stay ahead of the wind!
