Prometheus (2012) Poster

(I) (2012)

Logan Marshall-Green: Charlie Holloway



  • Charlie Holloway : What we hoped to achieve was to meet our makers. To get answers. Why they even made us in the first place.

    David : Why do you think your people made me?

    Charlie Holloway : We made you because we could.

    David : Can you imagine how disappointing it would be for you to hear the same thing from your creator?

    Charlie Holloway : I guess it's good you can't be disappointed.

  • Charlie Holloway : David, why are you wearing a suit, man?

    David : I beg your pardon?

    Charlie Holloway : You don't breathe, remember? So why wear a suit?

    David : I was designed like this because you are more comfortable interacting with your own kind. If I didn't wear a suit, it would defeat the purpose.

    Charlie Holloway : They're making you guys pretty close, huh?

    David : Not too close, I hope.

  • David : How far would you go to get what you came all this way for - your answers? What would you be willing to do?

    Charlie Holloway : Anything and everything.

  • Meredith Vickers : Weyland found you impressive enough to fund this mission. But I'm fairly certain your Engineers are nothing but scribblings of savages living in dirty little caves. But let's say I'm wrong, and you do find these beings down there, you won't engage them, you won't talk to them. You will do nothing but report back to me.

    Charlie Holloway : Um, Miss Vickers, is there an agenda that you're not telling us about?

    Meredith Vickers : My company paid a trillion dollars to find this place and to bring you here. Had you raised the monies yourself, Mr. Holloway, we'd happily be pursuing your agenda. But you didn't. And that makes you an employee.

  • Charlie Holloway : These are images of archaeological digs from all over the earth.

    [pointing to different images] 

    Charlie Holloway : That's Egyptian, Mayan, Sumerian, Babylonian. That's Hawaiian at the end there and Mesopotamian. Now this one here is our most recent discovery, it's a thirty five thousand year old cave painting from the Isle of Skye in Scotland. These are ancient civilizations, they were separated by centuries, they shared no contact with one another, and yet...

    [he gathers the hologram images to line up and he goes through each one] 

    Charlie Holloway : The same pictogram, showing men worshipping giant beings pointing to the stars was discovered at every last one of them. The only galactic system that matched, was so far from Earth, that there's no way that these primitive ancient civilizations could have possibly known about it. But it just so happens, that system has a sun, a lot like ours. And based on our long range scans, there seemed to be a planet. Just one planet with the moon, capable of sustaining life, and we arrived there this morning.

    Fifield : So you're saying we're here because of a map you two kids found in a cave, is that right?

    Elizabeth Shaw : No.

    Charlie Holloway : Yeah. Um...

    Elizabeth Shaw : No. Not a map. An invitation.

    Fifield : From whom?

    Elizabeth Shaw : We call them Engineers.

    Fifield : Engineers? Do you mind, um, telling us what they engineered?

    Elizabeth Shaw : They engineered us.

    Fifield : Bullshit.

  • Charlie Holloway : There.

    [points at what looks like a landing strip in the valley] 

    Janek : Dr. Holloway, why don't you take a seat.

    Charlie Holloway : Right there. God does not build in straight lines.

  • Janek : What is the atmosphere?

    Ravel : Atmosphere is 71 percent nitrogen, 21 percent oxygen, traces of argon gas.

    Janek : Whoa, now, that's weather.

    Charlie Holloway : Just like home.

    Ford : Only if you're breathing through an exhaust pipe. CO2 is over 3 percent. Two minutes without a suit, you're dead.

  • Charlie Holloway : Captain, would you please tell the survey to suit up and meet us in the airlock.

    Janek : There's only six hours left of daylight. Why don't you leave it till the morning.

    Charlie Holloway : No, no, no. It's Christmas, captain, and I want to open my presents.
