[to Cunningham] And I'm afraid, really afraid... really afraid but I... I think you're the ****ing Antichrist.


Donnie: My parents didn't get me what I wanted for Christmas.
Dr. Lillian Thurman: What did you want?
Donnie: Hungry Hungry Hippos.
Dr. Thurman: And how did you feel, being denied these hungry, hungry hippos?
Donnie: Regret.

[Donnie is under hypnosis by his therapist]
Dr. Lilian Thurman: What else makes you feel regret, Donnie?
Donnie: [suddenly breaking into a wide grin] That I did it again...

Elizabeth Darko: Donnie, you're such a dick.
Donnie: Whoa, Elizabeth! A little hostile there. Maybe you should be the one in therapy. So Mom and Dad can pay someone $200 an hour to listen to all your thoughts, so we don't have to.
Elizabeth: OK, you want to tell Mom and Dad why you stopped taking your medication?
Donnie: You're such a ****ass!
Elizabeth: What?!
Rose Darko: Please.
Elizabeth: Did you just call me a “****ass”?
Rose: Elizabeth, that's enough.
Elizabeth: You can go suck a ****.
Donnie: Oh please tell me, Elizabeth, how exactly does one suck a ****?
Elizabeth: You want me to tell you?
Rose: We will not have THIS at the dinner table.
Donnie: Please, tell me... I'm all ears.
[everyone pauses]
Samantha: What's a ****ass?

[Under hypnosis by Dr. Lilian Thurman]:
Dr. Lilian Thurman: What else makes you feel regret?
Donnie: [grins] That I did it again.
Dr. Lilian Thurman: You did it again?
Donnie: I flooded my school, and I burned down that pervert's house! [laughs] I've only got a few more days left before they catch me!
Dr. Lilian Thurman: Did Frank...tell you to do these things?
Donnie: I have to obey him, he saved my life! I have to obey him...or else I'll be left all alone. And then...then I won't be able to figure out what this is all about. I won't be able to kn...know his master plan.
Dr. Lilian Thurman: Do you mean...God's master plan? Do you now...believe in God?
Donnie: I have the power to build a time machine.
Dr. Lilian Thurman: How is that possible? [Donnie starts sniffling] How is...time travel...possible?
Donnie: The world is coming to an end...
Dr. Lilian Thurman: When is this going to happen?
Donnie: S...s...soon! [sniffling]
Dr. Lilian Thurman: [Donnie takes a teddy bear] What is going to happen?
Donnie: Frank is going to kill...
Dr. Lilian Thurman: Who is he going to kill? Who is he going to kill, Donnie?
Donnie: [looks up] I CAN SEE HIM RIGHT NOW!! [Frank is standing in front of him. Donnie gets a few disturbing visions]
Donnie: Sky is coming open...
Dr. Lilian Thurman: If the sky were to suddenly open up, there would be no law, there would be no rule. There would only be you and your memories. If this world were to end, there would only be you... and him... and no one else.

[To Sherita Chen] I promise, that one day, everything's going to be better for you.

[in a letter] Dear Roberta Sparrow, I have reached the end of your book and... there are so many things that I need to ask you. Sometimes I'm afraid of what you might tell me. Sometimes I'm afraid that you'll tell me that this is not a work of fiction. I can only hope that the answers will come to me in my sleep. I hope that when the world comes to an end, I can breathe a sigh of relief, because there will be so much to look forward to.

They say it right when they flood the house and they tear it to shreds, that destruction is a form of creation. So the fact that they burn the money is ironic. They just want to see what happens when they tear the world apart. They want to change things.

[reading his poem in class] A storm is coming, Frank says / A storm that will swallow the children / And I will deliver them from the kingdom of pain / I will deliver the children back to their doorsteps / And send the monsters back to the underground / I'll send them back to a place where no-one else can see them / Except for me / Because I am Donnie Darko.

Some people are just born with tragedy in their blood.

What if you could go back in time, and take all those hours of pain and darkness and replace them with something better?

[reading from Graham Greene's The Destructors] "It was as though this plan had been with him all his life, pondered through the seasons, now in his fifteenth year crystallized with the pain of puberty."

I don't think that you have a clue what it's like to communicate with these kids. We are losing them to apathy... to this prescribed nonsense. They are slipping away.
