David Mills (picks up the phone): Hello?
John Doe: I admire you. I don't know how you found me, but imagine my surprise. I respect you law enforcement agents more every day.
David Mills: Well, I appreciate that, John. I tell you ...
John Doe: No, no, you listen, all right? I'll be re-adjusting my schedule in light of today's little ... setback. I just had to call and express my admiration. Sorry I had to hurt ... one of you, but I really didn't have a choice, did I?
David Mills: Hm.
John Doe: You will accept my apology, won't you? I feel like saying more, but I don't want to ruin the surprise. [Hangs up]

I don't think you're quitting because you believe these things you say. I don't. I think you want to believe them because you're quitting. And you want me to agree with you, and you want me to say, "Yeah, yeah, yeah. You're right. It's all ****ed up. It's a ****ing mess. We should all go live in a ****ing log cabin." But I won't. I don't agree with you. I do not. I can't.

[To John Doe] I've been trying to figure something in my head, and maybe you can help me out, yeah? When a person is insane, as you clearly are, do you know that you're insane? Maybe you're just sitting around, reading Guns and Ammo, masturbating in your own feces. Do you just stop and go, "Wow! It is amazing how ****ing crazy I really am!"? Yeah, do you guys do that?

[In mock appreciation] It's impressive to see a man feeding off his emotions.

This isn't going to have a happy ending.

If we catch John Doe and he turns out to be the devil – I mean, if he's Satan himself – that might live up to our expectations. But he's not the devil. He's just a man.

But you got to be a ... a hero. You want to be a champion. Well, let me tell you, people don't want a champion. They want to eat cheeseburgers, play the lotto and watch television.

[At the library] Gentlemen, gentlemen. I'll never understand. All these books. A world of knowledge at your fingertips. And what do you do? Play poker all night.

If John Doe's head splits open and a UFO should fly out, I want you to have expected it.

[Realizing what's inside the package] California, tell your people to stay away. Stay away now, don't ... don't come in here. Whatever you hear, stay away! John Doe has the upper hand! John Doe has the upper hand!
