Wonder Woman (2017)
Ares: They don't deserve your protection!
Wonder Woman: It's not about deserve, it's about what you believe. And I believe in love.
Diana Prince: I will fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.
Steve Trevor: [leaves Diana his watch] I wish we had more time. I love you.
Diana Prince: What one does with the truth is more difficult than you think. I learnt this the hard way, a long, long time ago. And now, my life will never be the same...
Steve Trevor: [to Diana] I can save today. You can save the world.
Diana Prince: Awww, a baby!
Steve Trevor: No. No. No babies. No babies. That one's not made out of clay!
Diana Prince: I used to want to save the world. To end war and bring peace to mankind. But then, I glimpsed the darkness that lives within their light. I learned that inside every one of them, there will always be both. The choice each must make for themselves - something no hero will ever defeat. I've touched the darkness that lives in between the light. Seen the worst of this world, and the best. Seen the terrible things men do to each other in the name of hatred, and the lengths they'll go to for love. Now I know. Only love can save this world. So I stay. I fight, and I give... for the world I know can be. This is my mission, now. Forever.
Etta Candy: I'm introducing myself. It's Etta Candy. I'm Steve Trevor's secretary.
Diana Prince: What is a secretary?
Etta Candy: Oh, well, I do everything. I go where he tells me to go, I do what he tells me to do.
Diana Prince: Well, where I'm from that's called slavery.
Etta Candy: I really like her.
Steve Trevor: This is no man's land, Diana! It means no man can cross it, alright? This battalion has been here for nearly a year and they've barely gained an inch. All right? Because on the other side there are a bunch of Germans pointing machine guns at every square inch of this place. This is not something you can cross. It's not possible.
Diana Prince: So... what? So we do nothing?
Steve Trevor: No, we are doing something! We are! We just... we can't save everyone in this war. This is not what we came here to do.
Diana Prince: No. But it's what I'm going to do.
Diana Prince: You lied to me?
Steve Trevor: I'm a spy, it's what I do!
Diana Prince: How do I know you're not lying to me now?
[Steve puts the Lasso on himself]
Steve Trevor: We're headed to the front. We're probably going to die. This is a terrible idea!
Diana Prince: I'm going, Mother. I cannot stand by while innocent lives are lost. If no one else will defend the world from Ares, then I must. I have to go.
Queen Hippolyta: I know. Or at least I know I cannot stop you.
[dismounts from horse]
Queen Hippolyta: There's so much... so much you do not understand.
Diana Prince: I understand enough that I'm willing to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. Like you once did.
Queen Hippolyta: You know that if you choose to leave, you may never return.
Diana Prince: Who will I be if I stay?
Queen Hippolyta: [holding up tiara] This belonged to the greatest warrior in our history, our beloved Antiope. Make sure you are worthy of it.
Diana Prince: I will.
Queen Hippolyta: [shakes her head] Be careful in the world of men, Diana. They do not deserve you.
[gently cupping her daughter's face:]
Queen Hippolyta: You have been my greatest love.
Queen Hippolyta: Today, you are my greatest sorrow.
Diana Prince: I can not stand by while innocent lives are lost!
Steve Trevor: [holding his watch] It's still tickin'.
Diana Prince: What for?
Steve Trevor: Because it tells the time. When to eat, sleep, wake up, work.
Diana Prince: You let this little thing tell you what to do?
Steve Trevor: Yeah.
Steve Trevor: My father told me once, he said, "If you see something wrong happening in the world, you can either do nothing, or you can do something". And I already tried nothing.
Steve Trevor: [trying to stop Diana killing Ludendorff] I can't let you do this.
Diana Prince: What I do is not up to you.
Steve Trevor: Have you never met a man before? What about your father?
Diana Prince: I had no father. My mother sculpted me from clay and I was brought to life by Zeus.
Steve Trevor: Well, that's neat... Where I come from, babies are made differently.
[Steve gives Diana glasses to wear]
Etta Candy: Really, specs? Suddenly she's not the most beautiful woman you've ever seen?
Diana Prince: [in tears] She was right, my mother was right... she said the world of men do not deserve you, they don't deserve our help...
Steve Trevor: It's... it's not about deserve. Maybe, maybe we don't. But it's not about that, it's about what you believe. You don't think I get it, after what I've seen out there? You don't think I wish I could tell you that it was one bad guy to blame? It's not! We're all to blame!
Diana Prince: I'm not!
Steve Trevor: But maybe I am.
Charlie: May we get what we want...
Steve Trevor: ...and may we get what we need.
Sameer: But may we never get what we deserve.
[eating ice cream for the first time, and loving it]
Diana Prince: [to the vendor] It's wonderful. You should be very proud.
Steve Trevor: Welcome to jolly old London.
Diana Prince: It's hideous!
Steve Trevor: Yeah, it's not for everybody.
Diana Prince: To the war!
Steve Trevor: Technically, the war is that way. But first we got to go THIS way...
Diana Prince: [sees a couple] Why are they holding hands?
Steve Trevor: Uh... Probably because they are together.
[Diana tries to hold Steve's hand]
Steve Trevor: No, no, no. We're not together. I mean, in that way.
Sameer: [On seeing Diana throw a large man across the pub] I am both frightened... and aroused.
Ares: I SHALL DESTROY YOU!
[hurls lightning at Diana]
Diana Prince: Goodbye, brother.
[throws Ares' lightning back at him]
[Diana experiences snow for the first time]
Steve Trevor: It's, uh... it's just snowfall. Touch it.
Diana Prince: [laughs] It's magical!
Steve Trevor: It is, isn't it?
Diana: They came to the conclusion that men are essential for procreation, but when it comes to pleasure... unnecessary.
Queen Hippolyta: You know that if you choose to leave, you may never return.
Diana Prince: Who will I be if I stay?
Charlie: Maybe you're better off without me, yeah?
Diana Prince: [smiles] No, Charlie. Who will sing for us?
Diana: I used to want to save the world. This beautiful place. But I knew so little then. It is a land of beauty and wonder, worth cherishing in every way. But the closer you get, the more you see the great darkness simmering within. And mankind? Mankind is another story altogether.
Queen Hippolyta: [gives Diana Antiope's tiara] This belonged to the greatest warrior who ever lived.
Diana Prince: [dances with Steve] Is this what people do when there are no wars to fight?
Steve Trevor: Yeah... this, and other things.
Diana Prince: What things?
Steve Trevor: Um, they have breakfast. They love their breakfast. And, um, they love to wake up and read the paper and go to work, they get married, make some babies, grow up together. I guess.
Diana Prince: What is that like?
Steve Trevor: I have no idea.
Ludendorff: [waltzs with Diana] You know your ancient Greeks? They understood that war is a god. A god that requires human sacrifice. And in exchange, war gives man purpose. Meaning. A chance to rise above his petty mortal little self. And be courageous. Noble. Better.
Diana Prince: Only one of the many gods believed in that. And he was wrong.
Ludendorff: You know nothing of the gods.
Diana Prince: You refer to reproductive biology?
Steve Trevor: Yes.
Diana Prince: Yeah, I know. I know all about that.
Steve Trevor: I mean I refer to that and other things.
Diana Prince: The pleasures of the flesh?
Steve Trevor: Do you know about that?
Diana Prince: I've read all 12 volumes of Clio's "Treatises on Bodily Pleasure."
Steve Trevor: All 12, huh? Did you bring any of those with you?
Diana Prince: I killed him, why are they doing this? Why are they still fighting?
Steve Trevor: Because maybe it's them! Maybe people aren't always good, Ares or no Ares. Maybe it's just who they are.
Ares: [as Sir Patrick] You're right, Diana. They do not deserve you.
Diana Prince: You... you're him.
Ares: I am.
[Ludendorff gases the German cabinet, and leaves them all one gas mask]
Dr. Maru: That mask won't help them!
Ludendorff: They don't know that.
[they laugh, and flee]
Queen Hippolyta: [ties the Lasso of Truth onto Steve] What are you?
Steve Trevor: [tries to get around the question, but fails] I am a spy!
Menalippe: You should have told her.
Queen Hippolyta: The more she knows, the sooner he will find her.
Queen Hippolyta: What is your mission?
Steve Trevor: To stop the war!
Diana Prince: What war?
Steve Trevor: The war to end all wars! Weapons far deadlier than you can imagine! Whoever you are, you are in more danger than you realize!
Diana Prince: [waltzing with Steve] We are not dancing, just swaying.
Steve Trevor: What is this place? Who are you people?
Diana Prince: We are a bridge to a greater understanding.
Ares: I am not the god of war, Diana. I am the god of truth!
Diana Prince: [examining a corset on display at a department store] Is this what passes for armor in your country?
Etta Candy: Armor? Well - it's fashion. It keeps our tummy's in!
Diana Prince: Why must you keep them in?
Etta Candy: Only a woman with no tummy would ask that question.
Sameer: Everyone is fighting their own battles, Diana. Just as you're fighting yours.
Dr. Maru: General.
Dr. Maru: Not enough. It is over General. Germany is giving up. Von Hindenburg has recommended the Kaiser sign the Armistice. We have run out of time.
Ludendorff: As soon as the Kaiser sees the newest weapon, he will not sign the Armistice.
Dr. Maru: But without my book...
Ludendorff: We will get your book! It is YOU I believe in, not it! I know that you can and will succeed. It is what you were put on this Earth to do.
Dr. Maru: Something did come to me last night. A different type of gas, for you. To restore your strength.
[Dr Maru opens the gas and Ludendorff breathes it in, giving him super-strength. Due to this, one of Dr Maru's screwed-up notes is pushed towards her. She reads it]
Dr. Maru: I've got it. I've got it! And if it's what i think, it's going to be... terrible.
Sameer: A lot of people can't be what they wish to be, Diana. Look at me. I wanted to be an actor, but I am the wrong color.
Fausta Grables: [sees Wonder Woman] Who are you supposed to be?
[Diana silently sizes up Fausta]
Fausta Grables: What are you doing?
Diana Prince: What are you doing?
Steve Trevor: I thought you'd maybe wanna get some sleep.
Diana Prince: What about you? Are you not sleeping? Does the average man not sleep?
Steve Trevor: I - Yes, we sleep. We do. We just don't sleep with - eh...
Diana Prince: You don't sleep with women?
Steve Trevor: No, I mean, I do sleep with women. I sleep with - yes, I do. But, out of the - eh - confines of marriage, it's not polite to assume, you know.
Diana Prince: Marriage?
Steve Trevor: Yes, Marriage. Do you not have that down in - yeah - you go before a judge and you swear to - eh - love, honor and cherish each other until death do you part.
Diana Prince: And do they? Love each other till death?
Steve Trevor: Not very often. No.
Diana Prince: Then why do they do it?
Steve Trevor: I - I have no idea.
Diana Prince: So, you cannot sleep with me unless I marry you?
Steve Trevor: I'll - I'll sleep with you! If you want. I'll sleep - right there.
Diana Prince: There's plenty of room.
Steve Trevor: Then, fine, if you don't mind.
Diana Prince: The gas will kill everything. What kind of weapon kills innocents?
Steve Trevor: In this war, every kind.
Steve Trevor: All right, so, give me your hand. Like so. And I'll put my arm around you. Like so. And we just, what'd you call it? Sway? And we just sway.
Diana Prince: You're awfully close.
Steve Trevor: That's what - its all about.
Diana Prince: I see.
Queen Hippolyta: Long ago, when time was new and all of history was still a dream, the gods ruled the earth, Zeus, king among them. Zeus created beings over which the gods would rule. Beings born in his image, fair and good, strong and passionate. He called his creation: Man.
Diana Prince: [Walks in on Steve getting out of his bath] Would you say you were a typical example of your sex?
Steve Trevor: I am - above average.
Diana Prince: What's that?
Steve Trevor: [looks down] It's a - eh - Oh, it's a watch.
Diana Prince: A watch?
Steve Trevor: Yeah. It's a watch. It tells time.
Sameer: Your eyes, as soft as your smile...
Diana Prince: And your eyes look like they want something.
Sameer: I know Chinese too, tricky girl.
Diana Prince: But can you recite Socrates in Ancient Greek?
Diana Prince: We made a deal, Steve Trevor. And a deal is a promise. And a promise is unbreakable.
Diana Prince: I even asked them to send me with you. Or, anyone. An Amazon. The Amazons.
Steve Trevor: The Amazons?
Diana Prince: It is our sacred duty to defend the world. I wish to go. But, my mother will not allow it.
Steve Trevor: This war is - a great big mess. And there's not a whole lot you and I can do about that. We can get back to London and try to get the men who can.
Diana Prince: I'm the man who can!
Steve Trevor: You're not wearing any clothes. Let's go buy you some clothes.
Diana Prince: What do these women wear into battle?
Steve Trevor: [to Diane] Is there anything else you want to show me?
Diana Prince: A liar, a murderer, and, now, a smuggler. Lovely.
Sameer: Not everyone gets to be what they want to be all the time. Me. I am an actor. I love acting. I didn't want to be a soldier.
Charlie: You must think I was born yesterday.
Steve Trevor: I know it sounds crazy, but it's true. Every word.
Sameer: Wait... wait. There is a whole island of women like her? And not a single man among them? How do we get there? And she thinks that Ludendorff is Ares, the god of war?
Charlie: And only by killing him will the war end? Don't be daft.
Sameer: You saw what happened out there. The way she dropped that machine gun nest. The way she took out the tower? Maybe it's true.
The Chief: I think it's true. I believe it's true.
Sameer: Et voilà!
Charlie: Steven son, you don't really believe those rubbish thing?
Von Hindenberg: You were absent at the council meeting, General.
Ludendorff: I see you are negotiating the terms of the armistice without me.
Von Hindenberg: On the Kaiser's behalf.
Ludendorff: And on your insistence. We could easily win this war if only you had a little faith.
Von Hindenberg: We don't. There are shortages of food, medicine, ammunition. Every hour we delay costs thousands of German lives.
Ludendorff: One attack and the world could be ours. As we speak, my chemist...
Von Hindenberg: We stand against you and your... witch. Ludendorff, enough! 24 hours from now, this war will end. It is over.
Ludendorff: It's over for you.
[turns and walks out]
Ludendorff: It is over for all of you.
