View Quote God didn't do this. We did. TV Personality: The world of medicine has seen its share of miracle cures, from the polio vaccine to heart transplants. But all past achievements may pale in comparison to the work of Dr. Alice Krippin. Thank you so much for joining us this morning.
Dr. Alice Krippin: Not at all.
TV Personality: So, Dr. Krippin, give it to me in a nutshell.
Dr. Alice Krippin: Well, the premise is quite simple — um, take something designed by nature and reprogram it to make it work for the body rather than against it.
TV Personality: You're talking about a virus?
Dr. Alice Krippin: Indeed, yes. In this case the measles, um, virus which has been engineered at a genetic level to be helpful rather than harmful. Um, I find the best way to describe it is if you can... if you can imagine your body as a highway, and you picture the virus as a very fast car, being driven by a very bad man. Imagine the damage that car can cause. Then if you replace that man with a cop... the picture changes. And that's essentially what we've done.
TV Personality: And how many people have you treated so far?
Dr. Alice Krippin: Well, we've had 10,009 clinical trials in humans so far.
TV Personality: And how many are cancer-free?
Dr. Alice Krippin: 10,009.
TV Personality: So you have actually cured cancer.
Dr. Alice Krippin: Yes, yes... yes, we have.
View Quote Anna: Come with us, Neville. To the colony.
Neville: There's no colony, Anna. [closes metal barrier] Everything just fell apart. There was no evacuation plan...
Anna: You're wrong. There is a colony. I know, okay?
Anna: How do you know, Anna? [closes another barrier]
Neville: I just know.
Anna: How? I said, how do you know? How could you know?
Anna: God told me. He has a plan.
Neville: God told you?
Anna: Yes.
Neville: The God?
Anna: Yes. I know how this sounds.
Neville: It sounds crazy.
Anna: But something told me to turn on the radio. Something told me to come here.
Neville: My voice on the radio told you to come here, Anna.
Anna: You were trying to kill yourself last night, weren't you? And I got here just in time. He must have sent me here for a reason.
Neville: Anna... Stop it. What are you doing? Stop it.
Anna: The world is quieter now. We just have to listen. If we listen, we can hear God's plan.
Neville: God's plan?
Anna: Yeah.
Neville: All right. Let me tell you about your "God's plan". There were 6 billion people on Earth when the infection hit. KV had a 90% kill rate, that's 5.4 billion people dead. Crashed and bled out. Dead. [claps hands together] Less than 1% immunity. That left 12 million healthy people, like you, me, and Ethan. The other 588 million turned into your dark seekers, and then they got hungry and they killed and fed on everybody. Everybody! Every single person that you or I has ever known is DEAD! DEAD! There is no God. There is no God!
View Quote Neville: [While watching a video of Shrek, softly recites all of the dialogue of an entire scene aloud as the lines are spoken on TV. Anna and Ethan stare at him] I like Shrek.
Anna: You're not so good with people anymore, are you?
View Quote Neville: I think this is why you're here. [Places vial containing the KV antidote into Anna's hand as he prepares to face the "dark seekers."]
Anna: What are you doing?
Neville: I'm listening.
View Quote [Anna looks at the pictures of the dark seekers Neville has experimented on]
Anna: Did they all die?
Neville: Yes.
Anna: My God.
Neville: God didn't do this. We did.
View Quote [now completely alone, Neville talks to the department store mannequins] I promised my friend I would say hello to you today. Hello. Hello. Please say hello to me. [crying] Please say hello to me!
View Quote [sees the department store dummy, Fred, outside of the store] What the hell are you doing out here, Fred? What the hell-No! NO! [grabs his assault rifle] What the hell... Fred, if you're real, you better tell me right now! Dammit Fred... IF YOU'RE REAL, YOU BETTER TELL ME RIGHT NOW! [guns the dummy down] DAMN IT, FRED!! DAMN IT!
View Quote [telling Anna about Bob Marley] He had this idea. It was kind of a virologist idea. He believed that you could cure racism and hate... literally cure it, by injecting music and love into people's lives. When he was scheduled to perform at a peace rally, a gunman came to his house and shot him down. Two days later he walked out on that stage and sang. When they asked him why — He said, "The people who are trying to make this world worse are not taking a day off. How can I? Light up the darkness."
View Quote Day 1001. Uh, we came in close contact with a hive today. Blood tests confirm that I am immune to both the airborne and contact strains. Canines remain immune to airborne strain only. [to Sam] You can't go running into the dark, dummy. Vaccine trials continue, I'm still unable to transfer my immunity to infected hosts. The Krippen Virus is... elegant. Just fishing in the dark, son. Hm, a behavioral note, um, an infected male exposed himself to sunlight today. Now, it's possible decreased brain function or the growing scarcity of food is causing them to... ignore their basic survival instincts. Social de-evolution appears complete. Typical human behavior is now entirely absent.
View Quote Dr. Robert Neville, September 5th, 2012, GA series, serum 391. Animal trials. Streaming video. [goes over to a stack of glass cubicles containing KV infected rats] GA series results appear typical. Compounds 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 16, 18 did not kill the virus. Compounds 2, 5, 7, 12, 13, 15, 17 all killed the host. [pause] Hold on a second. Compound 6 appears to be showing decreased aggression response. Partial pigmentation return. Slight pupil constriction. GA series, serum 391, Compound 6, next candidate for human trials. You hang in there, #6.
View Quote In 2009 a deadly virus burned through our civilization, pushing humankind to the edge of extinction. Dr. Robert Neville dedicated his life to the discovery of a cure, and the restoration of humanity. On September 9th, 2012, at approximately 8:49 p.m. he discovered that cure; and at 8:52 he gave his life to defend it. We are his legacy. This is his legend. Light up the darkness.
View Quote Mommy look, it's a butterfly!
View Quote My name is Robert Neville. I am a survivor living in New York City. I am broadcasting on all AM frequencies. I will be at the South Street Seaport everyday at mid-day, when the sun is highest in the sky. If you are out there... if anyone is out there... I can provide food, I can provide shelter, I can provide security. If there's anybody out there... anybody... please. You are not alone.
View Quote This is Ground Zero. This is my site. I can still fix this.
