View Quote Alan: You invented Space Paranoids?
Flynn: Paranoids, Matrix Blaster, Vice Squad, a whole slew of them. I was this close to starting my own little enterprise, man. But enter another software engineer. Not so young, not so bright, but very, very sneaky: Ed Dillinger. So one night, our boy Flynn, he goes to his terminal, tries to read up his file. I get nothing on there, it's a big blank. Okay, now we take you three months later. Dillinger presents Encom with five video games, that he's invented. The slime didn't even change the names, man, and he gets a big fat promotion! And thus begins his meteoric rise to, what is he now? Executive V.P.?
Lora: Senior exec.
Flynn: Senior exec? [sighs] Meanwhile, the kids are putting eight million quarters a week into Paranoids machines. I don't see a dime except what I squeeze out of here.
View Quote Alan: [about Flynn] The best programmer ENCOM ever had, and he ends up playing Space Cowboy in some back room.
View Quote Alan: [about the digitizing laser] Great. Can it send me to Hawaii?
Lora: Yep, but you gotta purchase your program 30 days in advance.
View Quote Alan: Flynn, are you embezzling?
Flynn: "Embezzling" is such an ugly word, Mr. Bradley.
View Quote Alan: I still don't understand why you want to break into the system.
Flynn: [frustrated] Because, man, somewhere in one of these memories is the evidence! If I could just get in there, I could reconstruct it!
View Quote Alan: Try to look official. Here comes the boss.
[A helicopter lands, and Flynn steps out]
Flynn: [to pilot] Pick me up in an hour. Thanks. [to Alan and Lora] Greetings, Programs! [hugs them]
View Quote Crom: Look. This... is all a mistake. I'm just a compound interest program. I work at a savings and loan! I can't play in these video games!
Guard: Sure you can, pal. You look like a natural athlete if I ever saw one.
Crom: Who, me? Are you kidding? No, I run to check on T-bill rates, I get out of breath. Hey, look, you guys are gonna make my User, Mr. Henderson, very angry. He's a full-branch manager.
Guard: Great. Another religious nut. [pushes Crom into the holding cell]
Ram: I'd say "Welcome Friend". But not here. Not like this.
Crom: I don't even know what I'm doing here.
Ram: Do you believe in the Users?
Crom: Sure I do. If I don't have a User, then who wrote me?
Ram: That's what you're doing down here.
View Quote Dillinger: ENCOM isn't the business you started in your garage anymore. We're billing accounts in thirty different countries; new defense systems; we have one of the most sophisticated pieces of equipment in existence.
Dr. Gibbs: Oh, I know all that. [starts for the elevator] Sometimes I wish I were back in my garage...
Dillinger: That can be arranged, Walter.
Dr. Gibbs: [stops and turns back to Dillinger, visibly angry] That was uncalled for! You know, you can remove men like Alan and me from the system, but we helped create it! And our spirit remains in every program we design for this computer!
Dillinger: Walter, it's getting late. I've got better things to do than to have religious discussions with you. Don't worry about ENCOM anymore; it's out of your hands now.
View Quote Dillinger: I think we should shut down all access until we find that Flynn, just to be safe.
Master Control Program: There's a 68.71 percent chance you're right.
Dillinger: Cute.
Master Control Program: End of Line.
View Quote Dillinger: It's my fault. I programmed you to want too much.
Master Control Program: I was planning to hit the Pentagon next week.
Dillinger: [alarmed] The Pentagon?
Master Control Program: It shouldn't be any harder than any other big company. But now this is what I get for using humans.
Dillinger: Now, wait a minute, I wrote you!
Master Control Program: I've gotten 2,415 times smarter since then.
Dillinger: What do you want with the Pentagon?
Master Control Program: The same thing I want with the Kremlin. I'm bored with corporations. With the information I can access, I can run things 900 to 1200 times better than any human.
Dillinger: If you think you're superior to us...
Master Control Program: You wouldn't want me to dig up Flynn's file and read it up on a VDT at The Times, would you?
[An image washes over the screen in Dillinger's desk. It shows a newspaper with Dillinger's face on the front page, along with the headline "ENCOM C.E.O. INDICTED"]
Dillinger: You wouldn't dare!
View Quote Dr. Gibbs: Ha, ha. You've got to expect some static. After all, computers are just machines, they can't think.
Alan: Some programs will be thinking soon.
Dr. Gibbs: Won't that be grand? All the computers and the programs will start thinking and the people will stop.
View Quote Dr. Gibbs: User requests are what computers are for!
Dillinger: Doing our business is what computers are for!
View Quote Flynn: It's time I leveled with you; I'm what you guys call a User.
Yori: You're a User?
Flynn: That took a wrong turn somewhere.
View Quote Flynn: Okay, Clu, tonight we check everything in the right-hand column. [cut to digital maze] Come on, come on. Where are you? [A tank appears] There you are. Clu?
Clu: Yes, sir?
Flynn: Clu, we don't have much time left to find that file. This is top priority.
Clu: Yes, sir. I know, sir.
Flynn: This isn't just correcting my bank statement or phone bill problem again. This is a must.
Clu: I understand, sir.
Flynn: Now, I wrote you.
Clu: Yes, sir.
Flynn: I taught you everything I know about the system.
Clu: Thank you, sir, but I'm not sure...
Flynn: No buts, Clu. That's for Users. Now, you're the best Program that's ever been written. You're dogged and relentless, remember?
Clu: Let me at 'em!
Flynn: That's the spirit. Now keep that tank rolling, and I'll try and cover you from this end. Go.
View Quote Flynn: Who's that guy?
Program: That's Tron. He fights for the Users.
