The Iron Giant
Kent Mansley: The biggest thing in this town is probably the homecoming queen.
The Iron Giant: I am not a gun.
Hogarth Hughes: Welcome to downtown Coolsville! Population: us.
Hogarth Hughes: You are what you choose to be.
General Rogard: You'll be Chief Inspector of Subway Toilets by the time I'm through with you!
Hogarth Hughes: I know you feel bad about the deer, but it's not your fault. Things die. That's part of life. It's bad to kill, but it's not bad to die.
The Iron Giant: You die?
Hogarth Hughes: Well, yes, someday.
The Iron Giant: I die?
Hogarth Hughes: I don't know. You're made of metal, but you have feelings, and you think about things, and that means you have a soul. And souls don't die.
The Iron Giant: Soul?
Hogarth Hughes: Mom says it's something inside of all good things, and that it goes on forever and ever.
[Hogarth leaves. The Iron Giant lays back to look at the stars.]
The Iron Giant: Souls don't die.
[A nuclear missile threatens Rockwell.]
The Iron Giant: I... fix.
Hogarth Hughes: Giant?
The Iron Giant: Hogarth, you stay. I go. No following.
Hogarth Hughes: I love you.
[The Iron Giant is eating one of Dean's sculptures.]
Dean McCoppin: There are two kinds of metal in this yard: scrap and art. If you gotta eat one of them, eat the scrap. uxm What you currently have -- IN YOUR MOUTH!! -- is ART.
Dean McCoppin: If we don't stand up for the crazies, who will?
The Iron Giant: No Atomo... I Superman!
