Bruce Willis: Old Joe
Older Joe : I don't want to talk about time travel because if we start talking about it then we're going to be here all day talking about it, making diagrams with straws.
Older Joe : How's your French coming?
Joe : Good. You gonna tell me I ought to be learning Mandarin?
Older Joe : I never regretted learning French.
Older Joe : I know you have a gun between your legs.
Older Joe : No? Well, you'll get it eventually. Obviously.
Joe : All right, listen. This is a hard situation for you, but we both know how this has to go down. I can't let you walk away from this diner alive. This is my life now. I earned it. You had yours already. So why don't you do what old man do and die? Get the fuck out of my way.
Older Joe : Why don't you just take out your little gun from between your legs and do it? Boy.
Older Joe : This is a piece of indentifying information on the Rainmaker. He's here. He lives here now. In this county. And I'm gonna use this to find him. And I'm gonna kill him. I'm gonna stop him from killing my wife.
Joe : Fuck you. And your wife. None of this concerns me.
Older Joe : This is gonna happen...
Joe : It happened to you. It doesn't have to happen to me. You got a picture right there in my watch? Let me see. Show me the picture. As soon as I see her, I walk away. I'll fucking marry someone else. Promise. So when I see that picture, that fog inside your brain should just swallow up all the memories, right? She'll be gone. If you give her up, she'll be safe.
Older Joe : Give her up?
Joe : Yeah, give her up. You're the one who got her killed. She never meets you, she's safe.
Older Joe : You don't understand. We don't have to give her up. I'm not gonna give her up. I'm gonna save her.
Older Joe : My memory's cloudy. It's a cloud. Because my memories aren't really memories. They're just one possible eventuality now. And they grow clearer or cloudier as they become more are less likely. But then they get to the present moment, and they're instantly clear again. I can remember what you do after you do it. And it hurts.
Joe : So even when we're apart, you can remember what I do after?
Older Joe : Yes, but this is a precise description of a fuzzy mechanism. It's messy.
Older Joe : [to his younger self] He's gonna take everything YOU got, and everything I got!
