"Nemo Nobody aged 118: Before he was unable to make a choice because he didn't know what would happen. Now that he knows what will happen, he is unable to make a choice.”
"Nemo Nobody old: Sometimes people call me Mr. Craft. C-R-A-F-T. Can't Remember A Fucking Thing.”
"Nemo Nobody aged 118: I've got nothing to say to you. I'm Mr. Nobody, a man who doesn't exist.
Young journalist: Do you remember what the world was like before quasi-immortality? What was it like when humans were mortals?
Nemo Nobody aged 118: There were cars that polluded. We smoked cigarettes. We ate meat. We did everything we can't do in this dump and it was wonderful! Most of the time nothing happened... like a French movie.
Young journalist: And, um, sexually? Before sex became obsolete.
Nemo Nobody aged 118: Ha ha, we screwed! Everybody was always screwing. We fell in love... we fell in love.”
"Nemo Nobody adult: What was there before the big bang? Well, you see, there was no before because before the big bang, time did not exist. Time is a revolving extansion of the universe itself. But what will happen when the universe has finished expanding?“
"Nemo age 9: You have to make the right choice. As long as you don't choose, everything remains possible.”
"Nemo age 16: How did you know my name?
Elise age 15: We go to the same school. You never notice me, you never notice anyone. Do you have a girlfriend? What, are you queer? Why don't you have a girlfriend?
Nemo age 16: I don't know... I don't want one.
Elise age 15: Do you know how to talk? Well say something.
[waits then starts to leave]
Nemo age 16: Gravity on Mars is 0,38. That's three times less than on Earth. The ground is covered with iron-oxide dust.
Elise age 15: [turns to face Nemo] You're incredible. Raise your hand and say 'I swear'. Promise me that when I die, you'll scatter my ashes on Mars.”
"Nemo Nobody adult: So... who has a joke? Anybody? I do! What's green, small and goes up and down?
Daughter: A pea in a elevator. It's not funny. Old people humour...”
"Nemo Nobody adult: [to/about Elise] I often have this dream. In prehistoric times, I can hear you screaming. I chase the bear and you're not afraid anymore, but when I wake up, there's no bear... but you're still afraid. I'm not a bear hunter. I'm an executive at a plant that manifactures photocopying machines that just quit his job. I don't dare move, not live, whatever I do is a disaster. I would set out to chase the bear away and for you to not be afraid anymore.”
"Young journalist: Everything you say is contradictory. You can't have been in one place and another at the same time. Of all those lives, which one is the right one?
Nemo Nobody aged 118: Each of these lives is the right one! Every path is the right path. Everything could have been everything else and it will have just as much meaning.”
"Nemo age 9: In chess, it's called Zugzwang... when the only viable move is not to move.”
