Snowpiercer Season 1 Episode 8: "These Are His Revolutions" Quotes
It's Wilford who runs our sacred engine. It's Wilford who has his finger on our pulse, who knows exactly what we need, how much food and water, how much heat and space, how much discipline. It's Wilford that saved us from the bitter cold. He's the only reason we're alive.Ruth
Till: I wonder, Jinju, just how many deep, dark secrets about this train you really do know.
Jinju: Please don't make me choose between you and the train.
Cavill: We lose a little bit of time each revolution. So it's on us to reverse that.
Miles: Because if Snowpiercer stops, we all die.
Cavill: That's right.
Grey: She deceived us all, Ruth.
Ruth: What will people hold on to now?
Grey: You. Me. Order.
Layton: Hey, nice day for a walk, Mr. Riggs?
Mr. Riggs: Yes, it is, son. Let's make it a long one.
Look, I know y'all got trust issues. I got 'em, too. People uptrain shuttin' us down here in the dark to fend for ourselves. We learned how to survive in the shadows. Well, today... today, let's leave this hell behind! We will fight with everything we've got because out there, right outside that door, there is a future that does not include us! Today, we take this train and we remind them exactly who it is they locked up back here!Layton
To everyone that we have lost to hunger and to sickness, to all the failed rebellions. We've got people who are willing to lay down their lives for us because they believe like we know that it is time for this train to work for all of its passengers!Layton
Audrey: Henry, this is Murray.
Klimpt: He doesn't look like a Tailie.
Aus: Well, you don't look like much of a doctor.
Cavill: Wilford wasn't who you thought he was, Ruth. He was a fraud.
Ruth: He built the Eternal Engine.
Cavill: No, he didn't. I did. I built this train, Ruth. I put everything I had into it. Everything. And Wilford sold tickets! He didn't believe it was possible to save humankind and he was never even going to try. He was going to waste it. All he wanted was to live as well as he could, for as long as he could, surrounded by accolades and booze and whores in the Night Car. We wouldn't have made it one revolution.
Osweiller: Bloody hell, boss, let's wait for backup. Jackboots are on their way.
Roche: Get your big boy pants on, Osweiller. We're going to hold this mob right here.
Osweiller: There's like four hundred of them.
Roche: Good thing for you you've been so nice to them over the years, then, isn't it?
Aus: What was that? Mandarin?
Klimpt: Does he speak Mandarin?
Aus: No. He. Doesn't. Speak.
The thing about Layton is he's an idealist. The good cop. Doesn't have the stomach for sustained cruelty. He took a big risk today and he lost. Keep grinding, he'll crumble.Pike
