Edward Norton as Derek Vinyard in American History X


“One in every three black males is in some phase of the correctional system. Is that a coincidence or do these people have, you know, like a racial commitment to crime?”

98.

Nicolas Cage as Charlie Kaufman/Donald Kaufman in Adaptation.


“To begin . . . To begin . . . How to start? I'm hungry. I should get coffee. Coffee would help me think. Maybe I should write something first, then reward myself with coffee. Coffee and a muffin. Okay, so I need to establish the themes. Maybe a banana-nut. That's a good muffin.”

96.

Ulrich Mühe as Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler in The Lives Of Others


“An innocent prisoner will become more angry by the hour due to the injustice suffered. He will shout and rage. A guilty prisoner becomes more calm and quiet. Or he cries. He knows he's there for a reason. The best way to establish guilt or innocence is non-stop interrogation.”
