John Carter quotes

John Carter: War's a shameful thing.
Dejah Thoris: Not when a noble cause is taken by those who can make a difference. You made a difference today, Virginia.
John Carter: Okay. See, my name is John Carter. Virginia is where I'm from.
Dejah Thoris: Where did you learn to jump that way?
John Carter: I don't know. How'd you learn to fly?
Dejah Thoris: Your ships cannot sail on light in Virginia?
John Carter: No, professor. See, our ships sail on the seas. Endless water everywhere.
Dejah Thoris: (Stares at him then begins to walk around him) Skeleton structure normal...
John Carter: What are you doing?
Dejah Thoris: (Continues to study him) It must be the density of your bones. (Spanks him)
Dejah Thoris: Jump for me!
Sola: Enough! There will be time for playfulness later!
Dejah Thoris: I want no playfulness from him. I want his help. Explain to me how you do it. If it's a skill, teach it to Helium. Name your price.
John Carter: I'm not for hire. I've got a cave of gold of my own. Somewhere (Begins to walk away)
Dejah Thoris: Only a madman would rave about the times of oceans!
John Carter: Is that your expert's view? I'm mad?
Dejah Thoris: Or a liar.
Sola: She's a good match for you, Dotar Sojat.
John Carter: Don't call me that.
Dejah Thoris: There are no seas on the planet.
John Carter: You said planet...

Sola: (as they follow Dejah who is supposed to be taking them to the river Iss) Dotar Sojat. Carter! I do not think she leads us to the Iss.
John Carter: Alright then, Sola. Just play along.
John Carter: (Carter rides his lizard-horse creature closer to Dejah and suddenly grabs her rains) What do you think I'd do once I saw your city and not some river?
Dejah Thoris: What do you mean?
Sola: Cloras Anthorea, they should be at our backs by now. You lead us toward Helium!
Dejah Thoris: Once we reach there, you would see for yourself the virtue of our cause.
Dejah Thoris: Everyone thinks their cause is virtuous, professor. (suddenly he grabs her stuff and throws her off her lizard-horse creature and he and Sola take off leaving her behind)
Dejah Thoris: What are you doing? No! John Carter! You can't!
Sola: (as they pretend to leave her) I like this plan better.
John Carter: Just wait. She'll come around.

Dejah Thoris: (referring to the symbols they've just discovered) I don't like guessing. I need more information, I need charts, codesses.
John Carter: (Carter looks at Dejah with suspicion)
John Carter: Right. And where might we find those?
Dejah Thoris: In the Hall of Science.
John Carter: And where's that?
Dejah Thoris: Helium.
John Carter: (Carter becomes angry, thinking that Dejah is still trying to convince him to go to Helium) Then quick! Let's just head on turn on back to Helium. (Carter grabs Dejah's arm in anger)
John Carter: What do you take me for?
Dejah Thoris: I take you for a man who's lost!
John Carter: I won't be lost if you just tell me how to work this thing!
Dejah Thoris: I will! But everything I need to understand the medallion is in Helium. I'm trying to get you back to your cave of gold. Isn't that what you want?
John Carter: Yes.
Dejah Thoris: No, I don't believe you. We may have been born worlds apart, but I know you, John Carter. From the moment you caught me in the sky, I knew. I felt the heart of a man willing to lay down his life for others. A man willing to fight for a cause, here, on Barsoom. (Suddenly Carter kisses Dejah, but he has a flashback of his wife and daughter and pulls away from Dejah)
Dejah Thoris: Don't you see? Carter, I fled to find another way. You are the other way. (suddenly they hear Sola calling out to Carter, as they leave the cave they see a tribe of Tharks, led by Matai Shang, shooting at Sola)

John Carter: (as they are pursued by the Thark tribe, Carter touches Dejah's hand and has flashback to coming home after the war to find his home burned with his wife and his daughter inside)
Sola: Dotar Sojat!
Dejah Thoris: What are you doing?
John Carter: (he jumps off the lizard-horse creature) Sola, get her out of here.
Dejah Thoris: No! Carter!
John Carter: I was too late once. I won't be again.
Dejah Thoris: No! No! No! No! (Carter tries to force Woola to flee with the women, but Woola remains, as the Thark tribe reach him, Carter leaps in the air and onto the warriors, with each slash of his sword he flashbacks to burying his wife and daughter and placing his wife's wedding ring on his hand, then the Tharks begin to overwhelm him and Carter disappears under a pile of Thark warriors)

Matai Shang: We do not cause the destruction of a world, Captain Carter. We simply manage it. Feed off it, if you like.

John Carter: (Seeing the carvings in the temple of the Tharks) Can you read it?
Dejah Thoris: It's old scripture.
John Carter: What's it mean?
Dejah Thoris: Don't rush me. "To those who seek the solace of eternity, may journey down the river through the sacred Gates of Iss and find everlasting peace in the bosom of Issus".
John Carter: The Gates of Iss.
Dejah Thoris: What if I could take you there?
John Carter: What if I didn't trust you?
Dejah Thoris: Then we'd be even. I can take you to the gates, to the answers that you seek. A way back to Jasoom.
John Carter: Earth.
Dejah Thoris: Earth. So this I can to repay you from getting us out of here. Assuming that you can.
John Carter: Deal. (Places his hand in front of her. Dejah looks confused)
John Carter: Go on. Shake it. It's a sign of trust. (Dejah takes his thumb and gives his hand a light shake)
John Carter: Good enough.

John Carter: Toxin, derived from a puffer fish, simulates death. (Carter finds the medallion on Matai Shang's body)
Edgar Rice Burroughs: You never found the medallion?
John Carter: No. That's why I'm so grateful to you for bringing me one.
Edgar Rice Burroughs: I... I was just bait?
John Carter: No. You're far more than that. I really do need a protector. That is, if you're willing. (Ned agrees and hugs Carter)
John Carter: Goodbye, Ned.
John Carter: (Carter turns to go into the mausoleum) Oh, and Ned. Take up a cause, fall in love, write a book.
John Carter: (about to close the mausoleum) It's time I went home.
John Carter: (he shuts the door, lays down on the body slab, and says the phrase that will return him to Barsoom) Ak Ohum Oktay Weez...
John Carter: (he sees Dejah saying 'Barsoom' and smiles before repeating the word) Barsoom.
