Hugo Cabret

View Quote Hugo: [angry and disappointed that the automaton hasn't written anything of sense] What an idiot! Thinking I could fix it!
Isabelle: Hugo...
[Hugo loses his composure and desperately begins smashing various items in the room.]
Hugo: It's broken! It's always been broken! [sits in chair, covers his face and begins to cry]
Isabelle: Hugo, it doesn't have to be like this. You can fix it.
Hugo: [crying] You don't... you don't understand. I thought... I thought if I could fix it... then I wouldn't be so alone.
[Hugo's sobs fill the room. Suddenly, the machine begins to draw again.]
Isabelle: Hugo, Hugo look! It... it's not done!
[The two watch as the automaton begins to draw a picture.]
Hugo: [voice breaking] It's not writing! It... it's drawing!
[They see it is a scene from the movie "A Trip to the Moon."]
Hugo: That's the movie my father saw! [the automaton signs Georges Méliès' name]
Isabelle: [amazed] Georges Méliès. That's Papa Georges name. Why would your father's machine sign Papa Georges' name?
Hugo: I don't know. [picks up drawing and looks at robot] Thank you. [turns to Isabelle] It was a message from my father. And now I have to figure it out.
View Quote Isabelle: We could get into trouble!
Hugo: That's how you know it's an adventure.
View Quote [after Hugo and Isabelle find a wooden box in a hidden cabinet in Méliès house, the box gets accidently broken exploding a mass of paper with sketches including a similar one of the moon]
Papa Georges/Georges Méliès: Back from the dead.
[Méliès picks up the some of the drawings and starts to rip them in anger]
Mama Jeanne/Jeanne d'Alcy: Stop it, Georges! Stop it! This is your work!
Papa Georges/Georges Méliès: MY WORK?! What am I? Nothing but a penniless merchant, a broken windup toy! [looking at Hugo] I trusted you. This is how you thank me. You're cruel. Cruel.
[he starts to cry and Isabelle takes Hugo out of the room]
Isabelle: I should get back.
Hugo: Okay.
[as she says goodbye to Hugo and turns to leave to return to the station]
Isabelle: Thank you... for the movie today. It... It was a gift.
View Quote [to Isabelle] I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured, if the entire world was one big machine, I couldn't be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason too.
View Quote Georges, you've tried to forget the past for so long, but it has caused you nothing but unhappiness. Maybe it's time you tried to remember.
View Quote I am Hugo!
View Quote If you've ever wondered where your dreams come look around. This is where they're made.
View Quote Listen to me! Please! Please! Listen to me! You don't understand! You have to let me go! I don't understand, why my father died! Why I'm alone!
View Quote Maybe that's why a broken machine always makes me a little sad, because it isn't able to do what it was meant to do... Maybe it's the same with people. If you lose your purpose... it's like you're broken.
View Quote My friends, I address you all tonight as you truly are; wizards, mermaids, travelers, adventurers, magicians... Come and dream with me.
View Quote This might be an adventure, and I've never had one before - outside of books, at least.
View Quote Why would my key fit into your father's machine?
