Agatha: Murder.

John Anderton: Why should I trust you?
Dr. Iris Hineman: You shouldn't. You shouldn't trust anyone. Certainly not the Attorney General who just wants it all for himself, and not the young Federal agent, who wants your job. Not even the old man who just wants to hold on to what he created. Don't trust anyone. Just find the Minority Report.

John Anderton: That's all, huh? Just walk right into Precrime, go in the Temple, somehow tap into these Precogs, and then download this Minority Report.
Dr. Iris Hineman: If you have one.
John Anderton: And then walk out.
Dr. Iris Hineman: Actually, I think you'll have to run out, but yes, that is what you have to do.

Lamar Burgess: My father once told me, "We don't choose the things we believe in; they choose us."

Lara Anderton: How do you take your coffee?
Danny Witwer: Cream and sugar.
Lara Anderton: I don't have any cream, sorry.
Danny Witwer: Just sugar, then. You and John ever come here?
Lara Anderton: (begins to walk away towards the kitchen) We used to.
Danny Witwer: He's not here now is he?
Lara Anderton: (stops in the doorway and looks at him)
Danny Witwer: I had to ask.
Lara Anderton: (walks back to Danny and hands back his cup) I don't have any sugar, either.

John Anderton: I need your help. You contain information. I need to know how to get at it.

Cyber Parlor Customer: I wanna kill my boss.
Rufus Riley: Uh-huh, okay. You got some images I can work with?
(spots John approaching with Agatha and hastily tries to cover up his unethical transaction)
Rufus Riley: ... Uh, yeah, being concertmaster for the Philadelphia Symphony is one of our most popular choices...
Cyber Parlor Customer: No, I wanna kill my boss.
Rufus Riley: You sick bastard! You're what makes this a terrible world to live in!

Leo Crow: You're not going to kill me.
John Anderton: Goodbye, Crow.

(last lines)
John Anderton: (voiceover) In 2054, the six-year Precrime experiment was abandoned. All prisoners were unconditionally pardoned and released, though police departments kept watch on many of them for years to come. Agatha and the twins were transferred to an undisclosed location, a place where they could find relief from their gifts. A place where they could live out their lives in peace.

John Anderton: There hasn't been a murder in six years. The system, it is perfect.

Pre-Crime Public Service Announcer: Imagine, a world with out, murder. 6 years ago, the homicidal rates had reached epidemic proportions. It seemed that only a miracle could stop the blood shed, but instead of 1 miracle, we were given 3, the precognitives. Within 3 months of the precrime program, the homicidal rates in the District of Columbia had reduced 90 percent.
Lamar Burgess: 6 Years in the precrime prgram, and there hasn't been a single murder.
Pre-Crime Public Service Announcer: Now, the system can work for you.
Attorney General Nash: We want to make sure that this great system is what will keep us safe will also keep us free.
Pre-Crime Public Service Announcer: On April 24, vote yes on the national Precrime initiative.

Rufus Riley: (to Agatha) Are you reading my mind right now?
John Anderton: Get up.
Rufus Riley: (to Agatha) I'm sorry for whatever I'm going to do and I swear I didn't do any of that stuff I did.

Dr. Iris Hineman: Sometimes, in order to see the light, you have to risk the dark.

Lamar Burgess: (as he is given a revolver) Revolvers, like this one, were given to the generals at the end of the civil war by their troops. The chambers were loaded with 5 gold plated bullets to symbolize the end of the destruction and death that set the country apart for 5 years. Now, with Precrime going national, I think we all can look towards a time where none of us will have to discharge another firearm ever again.
(the people Applaude him)
Lamar Burgess: Oh, enjoy yourselves, enjoy yourselves. That's an order.

Agatha: Dr. Hineman once said, "The dead don't die. They look on and help." Remember that, John.
John Anderton: Agatha...
Agatha: Sean... He's on the beach now, a toe in the water. He's asking you to come in with him. He's been racing his mother up and down the sand. There's so much love in this house. He's ten years old. He's surrounded by animals. He wants to be a vet. You keep a rabbit for him, a bird and a fox. He's in high school. He likes to run, like his father. He runs the two-mile and the long relay. He's 23. He's at a university. He makes love to a pretty girl named Claire. He asks her to be his wife. He calls here and tells Lara, who cries. He still runs. Across the university and in the stadium, where John watches. Oh God, he's running so fast, just like his daddy. He sees his daddy. He wants to run to him. But he's only six years old, and he can't do it. And the other men are so fast. There was so much love in this house.
John Anderton: (sobbing) I want him back so bad.
Agatha: So did she. Can't you see? She just wanted her little girl back. But it was too late. Her little girl was already gone.
John Anderton: She's still alive.
Agatha: She didn't die, but she's not alive.
John Anderton: Agatha, just tell me, who killed your mother? Who killed Anne Lively?
Agatha: (whispering) I'm sorry John, but you're gonna have to run again.
John Anderton: What?

(Howard is being arrested for the "future murder" of his wife)
Howard Marks: I didn't do anything! I wasn't gonna do anything!

John Anderton: Don't you ever say his name.

John Anderton: He set me up. He set me up.

(after having his eyes replaced to fool retinal scanners)
GAP Sign: Hello Mr. Yakamoto and welcome back to the GAP!
John Anderton: *Mr. Yakamoto?*

(Hundreds of contained prisoners rise up around Anderton and Gideon)
John Anderton: My God, I forgot there were so many.
Gideon: And just think, they'd all be out there killing people if it wasn't for you. Look at how peaceful they all are. But on the inside...
(taps his head)
Gideon: busy busy busy.

Dr. Iris Hineman: It's funny how all living organisms are alike...
(she starts crushing a mutated plant)
Dr. Iris Hineman: ...when the chips are down, when the pressure is on, every creature on the face of the Earth is interested in one thing and one thing only.
Dr. Iris Hineman: (the plant scars her palm) Its own survival.

John Anderton: No doubt the precogs have already seen this.
Lamar Burgess: No doubt.
John Anderton: You see the dilemma don't you. If you don't kill me, precogs were wrong and precrime is over. If you do kill me, you go away, but it proves the system works. The precogs were right. So, what are you going to do now? What's it worth? Just one more murder? You'll rot in hell with a halo, but people will still believe in precrime. All you have to do is kill me like they said you would. Except you know your own future, which means you can change it if you want to. You still have a choice Lamar. Like I did.

Agatha: You can choose...

Lycon: (to John Anderton) In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.

Rufus Riley: (seeing Agatha's visions appear) Wow. She works.

John Anderton: Why don't you cut the cute act, Danny boy, and tell me what it is you're looking for?
Danny Witwer: Flaws.
John Anderton: There hasn't been a murder in six years. There's nothing wrong with this system it is...
Danny Witwer: Perfect I agree, but there's a flaw. It's human.

(as Precrime cops barge through the different apartment rooms with their guns out, searching for John)
Mother: (referring to her children)
Mother: They're crying their eyes out! You terrified them! You...
Knott: (growls) You don't want your kids to know terror, then keep them away from me.

(Anderton gets wheeled into containment unit)
Gideon: You're part of my flock now, John.

(giving Anderton the antidote for a plant that has poisoned him)
Dr. Iris Hineman: You'd better drink this. Soon you won't be able to swallow, and then you'll be totally buggered.

John Anderton: (about Witwer's father) What does he think about your chosen line of work?
Danny Witwer: I don't know. He was shot and killed when I was 15 on the steps of our church in Dublin. I know what it's like to lose someone close, John. 'Course, nothing is like the loss of a child. I don't have any children of my own, so I can only imagine what that must've been like. To lose your son - in such a public place like that. At least now you and I have the chance to make sure that kind of thing doesn't happen to anyone...
John Anderton: Why don't you cut the cute act, Danny boy, and tell me exactly what it is you're looking for?
Danny Witwer: Flaws.
John Anderton: There hasn't been a murder in 6 years. There's nothing wrong with the system, it is perfect.
Danny Witwer: (simultaneously) - perfect. I agree. But if there's a flaw, it's human. It always is.

Lara Anderton: (starts fixing Lamar's bow tie)
Lamar Burgess: Listen, I'll tell you what I'll do. First thing Monday, I'll look over the Witwer evidence. And I'll have Gideon run the Containment files, see if anyone drowned a woman by the name of - what did you say her name was?
Lara Anderton: (freezes)
(Lamar's bow tie falls out of her hands)
Lara Anderton: Anne Lively
Lara Anderton: ... but I never said she drowned.

Dr. Iris Hineman: Find the minority report.
John Anderton: How do I even know which one has it?
Dr. Iris Hineman: It's always in the more gifted of the three.
John Anderton: Which one is it?
Dr. Iris Hineman: The female.

Director Burgess: Who's the victim?
John Anderton: Somebody.
Director Burgess: Who?
John Anderton: (trying to remember the name) Somebody. Leo Crow.
Director Burgess: Who is he?
John Anderton: I have no idea! I've never heard of him! But I'm supposed to kill him in less than thirty-six hours.

John Anderton: (his face inches from Agatha's) Where's my Minority Report?
John Anderton: DO I EVEN HAVE ONE?
(moment's silence)
John Anderton: (softly) Do I have one?
Agatha: (whispers) No.

Dr. Solomon: Now, you understand I can't just give you new irises. Because if I do, the retinal scans will read the scar tissue, alarms will go off, and large men with guns will appear.

John Anderton: I have to know. I have to find out what happened to my life.

John Anderton: (a dream sequence, Anderton is at the pool with his son as his son is coming up while holding his breath underwater) 25.26 seconds. That's a new record.
Younger Sean: Is it a world record.
John Anderton: Is it a world? It's your personal best.
Younger Sean: Let's try you.
John Anderton: What? Are you kidding me? There is no way that I can beat 25.26 seconds.
Younger Sean: How long can a whale hold it's breath underwater?
John Anderton: A whale can hold it's breath for about 20 minutes.
Younger Sean: You gotta beat the whale.
John Anderton: (his son gets out of the water as he is getting in) Here we go Sean. It could take 20 minutes, are you sure you don't want to get some ice cream or something?
Younger Sean: No. Ready dad?
John Anderton: Ready.
(kisses Sean as he goes underwater, as he is underwater, the watch suddenly drops into the water, then he comes back up)
John Anderton: Sean? Sean? Sean?
(looking around)
John Anderton: Have you seen my son, have you seen a kid in a red bathing suit? Sean? Have you seen my son, he was wearing a red bathing suit? Sean?
(wakes up screaming)
John Anderton: SEEEAAANNN!

John Anderton: Mr. Marks, by mandate of the District of Columbia Precrime Division, I'm placing you under arrest for the future murder of Sarah Marks and Donald Dubin that was to take place today, April 22 at 0800 hours and four minutes.

Director Burgess: (before shooting) Shh. Do you know what I hear? Nothing. No footsteps up the stairs, no hovercraft out the window, no clickety-click of little spiders. Do you know why I can't hear any of those things, Danny? Because right now, the precogs can't see a thing.

John Anderton: (as he was about to murder Crow just as the Pre-Cogs have seen, he holds Crow at gunpoint) You have the right to remain slient. Anything you do and say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have a right to an attorney. If you can't afford an attorney, we will appoint one. Do you understand these rights?
Leo Crow: You're not gonna kill me?
John Anderton: Do you understand these... rights?
Leo Crow: Listen, if you don't go through with this my family gets nothing, okay? You're supposed to kill me. Just like he said he would.
John Anderton: (Looking puzzled) He? Who's he?
Leo Crow: I don't know. He called in my cell, and he said I would be released and if I went along and my family will be taken care of.
John Anderton: If you did what? If you did what?
Leo Crow: If I acted like I killed your kid. If you don't kill me my family gets nothing.
John Anderton: Leo, tell me. Who was it that sets this up?
Leo Crow: I don't know.
(Anderton walks towards Crow slowly)
Leo Crow: Come on!
John Anderton: Tell me, who was it that set this up?
Leo Crow: I haven't seen his face. If I tell you who it is, my family gets nothing
(Grabs Anderton's armed hand)
Leo Crow: Kill me, kill me, kill me.
John Anderton: (Along with Crow) Let go, let go. Leo, let go of the gun, Leo let go of the gun. It's okay, it's okay, let go of the gun
(Crow slowley lets go of Anderton's armed hand)
John Anderton: You're not gonna kill me?
John Anderton: Good bye, Crow.
(Begins to walk away)
Leo Crow: Anderton, wait!
(Grabs Anderton's armed hand and causes Anderton to pull the trigger and the murder takes place)

(while he's kicking Leo on the floor)
John Anderton: Is he alive? He's alive. Where've you got him? Is he all right?
John Anderton: Tell me, you f**k, where is he?

(as Rufus and John watch Agatha's account of Anne Lively's murder)
Rufus Riley: And, like my life, everything is good.

John Anderton: Any contractions ?
Casey: Only the ones you give me!

Agatha: (to stranger in mall) He knows, don't go home.

(the readings Agatha is giving run quickly on a makeshift screen)
John Anderton: It's too fast. Slow it down.
Rufus Riley: How do I slow this down, I should hit her on the head?

Agatha: Can you see?

Wally the Caretaker: You're not allowed in here - who are you? Do I know you?
John Anderton: (in disguise, grabs Wally by the collar) Listen, Wally - I like you. So, I don't wanna have to kick you or hit you with anything hard, but only if you promise to help me.
Wally the Caretaker: ...Oh, hi, John.

Dr. Solomon: For true enlightenment there is nothing like... well, let's just say taking a shower while this large fellow with an attitude you couldn't knock down with a hammer, that keeps whispering in your ear: Oh nancy, Oh nancy. Now that was a lot of fun, thank you so very much John for putting me in there, thank you so very much for giving me an opportunity to get to know myself much better.

Gideon: (describing John Doe) Okey pokey, now this is one bad man.

Agatha: (to John Anderton) You still have a choice.
