"Here's the Weird Thing About Search Engines....."

Nathan (Oscar Isaac): "Here's the weird thing about search engines.  It's like striking oil in a world that hadn't invented internal combustion, too much raw material.  Nobody knew what to do with it.  You see my competitors, they were fixated on sucking it up and monetizing via shopping and social media.  They thought that search engines were a map of what people were thinking but actually they were a map of how people were thinking: impulse, response, fluid, imperfect, patterned, chaotic."

(A school bus hits Regina.)

Katie (Lindsey Lohan): "And that's how Regina George died.  No; I'm totally kidding but she did get hurt. Some girls said they saw her head spin all the way around.  That was totally a rumor.  Some girls said that I pushed her in front of that bus and that was an even worse rumor."

Jack (Michael Keaton): "You covered for us?!  That's a lie! That's not true."

Jinx Lathom (Jeffrey Lathom):"C'mon, Jack.  Larry and Stan were already in here. They already admitted that I covered for them. Now, c'mon.  It's time for you to be a stand-up guy."

Jack (Michael Keaton): "Larry and Stan would say anything you wanted them to say.  They need their jobs.  You want me to be a stand-up guy?  Okay: I'll be a stand up guy.  I need my job, too but what's going on here is wrong!!!

If I did such a bad job, why did production go down and costs go up, after you fired me?! Huh?  Look, I don't know what this guy told you.  I don't know what he does with his books.  I'm a car maker.  I make cars.  I'm not an accountant but I'll tell you something, I took a lot of pride in my work."

(Jack's son enters the room) Alex:  "Dad?"

Jinx Lathom (Jeffrey Lathom): "Now son, son, you're going to have to get out of here! We're in the middle of a meeting!"

Jack (Michael Keaton): (turns to his son) "Just a minute, Alex.  Daddy's talking."

(Jack turns back to the executives) "I know that's not real popular right now, 'taking pride in your work.' I did.  I cared, you fired me for it!"

(Jack turns to address Jinx) You ever talk to my kid like that again, I'm knocking you out!"

(Jack leaves the office)

Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman): "Seeing is believing but is it truth?  It depends on your point of view.  Are you listening, Horsemen?  When you emerge, and you will, I will be there waiting.  Because mark my words, you will get what's coming to you, in ways you can't expect but very much deserve.  One thing I believe in, is an eye for an eye."

"Oh My Dear, Miss Everdeen, I Thought We Agreed Never To Lie To Each Other"

President Snow (Donald Sutherland): "I wanted to tell you how very sorry I am about your sister.  So wasteful. So unnecessary.  Anyone could see the game was over by that point.  In fact, I was about to issue an official surrender when they released those parachutes."

Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence): "You released those parachutes."

President Snow (Donald Sutherland): "Do you really think I gave the order?  We both know I'm not above killing children but I'm not wasteful. I take life for specific reasons and there was no reason for me to destroy a pen full of Capital children. None at all.  (coughs into handkerchief)

I must concede it was a masterful move on Coin's part.  The idea that I was bombing our own helpless children to hold back the rebels, it turned the last of my guards against me.  There was no resistance left inside the Capital or the mansion.  Do you know, it aired live?!  There's a particular savvy in that. Isn't there?

I'm sure she wasn't gunning for your sister but these things happen in war.  My failure was in being so slow to grasp Coin's plan.  She let the Capital and the Districts destroy each other and then she stepped in to take power of the 13th Arsenal.

Oh, make no mistake. She intends to take my place now but I've been watching you and you watching me.  I'm afraid, we've both been played for fools."

Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence): "I don't believe you!"

President Snow (Donald Sutherland): "Oh my dear Miss Everdeen, I thought we agreed never to lie to each other."
