Hancock (2008)

August 10, 2008

Mary Embrey: [referring to Hancock] Did he…just take the whiskey bottle to the bathroom? 

Ray Embrey: Do you want him to kill us all? 

Ray Embrey: My basic diagnosis of your fundamental problem is…do you want to hear it? 
Hancock: No. 
Ray Embrey: You’re an asshole. I know. I call it like I see it, though. It’s not a crime to be an asshole, but it’s very counter-productive. Not a crime, but you are an asshole, don’t you think? 
Hancock: Be careful. 
Ray Embrey: Right now, there’s a DA trying to coming up here and put you in jail. 
Hancock: [while eating banana] Bitch can try! 
Ray Embrey: I say you go. 
Hancock: [confused] Hmm? 
Ray Embrey: People take you for granted, you know. We gotta make people miss you. People don’t like you, Hancock. 
Aaron Embrey: [yelling from other room] I do! 

Hancock: [reading prepared text] I apologize to the people of Los Angeles. My behavior has been improper and I accept the consequences. I ask my fellow Angelinos for their patience and understanding. Life here can be difficult for me. After all, I am the only one of my kind. During my incarceration, I will be participating in alcohol and anger management treatment. You deserve better from me. I can be better. I will be better. 

Ray Embrey: So you’ve used the door, the building’s still intact, people are happy you’ve arrived, they feel safe now, there’s an officer there and he’s done a good job, so you might want to tell him he’s done a good job. 
Hancock: What the hell did I have to come for Ray if he’s done a good job? 
Ray Embrey: [showing Hancock his uniform] For when they call. 
Hancock: I ain’t wearing that, Ray. 
Ray Embrey: Yes, you are. 
Hancock: Oh no, I’m not. 
Ray Embrey: No, you are. 
Hancock: Actually, I’m not Ray. 
Ray Embrey: You think you’re not, but you are. 
Hancock: I will fight crime butt-ass naked before I fight it in that, Ray. 
Ray Embrey: You know, you have fought naked. We got that. That’s on Youtube. 

Hancock: You and I… 
Mary Embrey: You and I what? 
Hancock: …we’re the same. 
Mary Embrey: No. I’m stronger. 
Hancock: Really? 
Mary Embrey: [smiling] Oh yeah. 
Hancock: Who are we? 
Mary Embrey: Gods, angels…Different cultures call us by different names. Now all of a sudden it’s superhero. 
Hancock: Are there more of us? 
Mary Embrey: There were. They all died. It’s just the two of us. 

Mary Embrey: [referring to Hancock] We broke up decades ago. Long before you were born. He just can’t remember. 
Ray Embrey: But you can, right? You knew? That’s something you might want to bring up on the first date, Mary. I don’t like to travel, I’m allergic to cats, I’m immortal. Those are like some of the things you might want to give a little heads-up on. 
Mary Embrey: Whatever we are, we’re built in twos. We’re drawn together. No matter how far I run, he’s always there! He finds me. It’s physics. 
Ray Embrey: Wait, what are you saying? Are you saying you two are fated to be together? 
Mary Embrey: I’ve lived for a very long time, Ray. And the one thing I learned – fate doesn’t decide everything. People get to choose.
