[Last lines] Ernest Hemingway once wrote, "The world is a fine place and worth fighting for." I agree with the second part.

Kevin Spacey (John Doe)
Wanting people to listen, you can't just tap them on the shoulder anymore. You have to hit them with a sledgehammer, and then you'll notice you've got their strict attention.
[From one of his journals] What sick ridiculous puppets we are / and what gross little stage we dance on / What fun we have dancing and fucking / Not a care in the world / Not knowing that we are nothing / We are not what was intended
 

Dialogues from "Seven"

John Doe (Kevin Spacey)
→ Nothing wrong with a man taking pleasure in his work. I won't deny my own desire to see each sin turned against the sinner.

Detective David Mills (Brad Pitt)
→ Wait, I thought all you did was murder innocent people...

John Doe
[outraged] Innocent? Is that supposed to be funny? [his voice rising in anger] An obese man, a disgusting man who could barely stand up, a man who if you saw him on the street, you'd point him out to your friends so that they could join you in mocking him, a man, who if you saw him while you were eating, you wouldn't be able to finish your meal. After him, I picked the lawyer, and I know you both must have been secretly thanking me for that one. This is a man who dedicated his life to making money by lying with every breath that he could muster to keeping murderers and rapists on the streets!

Detective David Mills
→ Murderers?

John Doe
→ A woman …

Detective David Mills
→ Murderers, John, like yourself?

John Doe
→ A woman, so ugly on the inside she couldn't bear to go on living if she couldn't be beautiful on the outside. A drug dealer, a drug-dealing pederast, actually! And let's not forget the disease-spreading whore! Only in a world this shitty could you even try to say these were innocent people and keep a straight face. But that's the point: we see a deadly sin on every street corner, in every home, and we tolerate it. We tolerate it because it's common, it's trivial. We tolerate it morning, noon, and night. Well, not anymore. I'm setting the example. What I've done is going to be puzzled over and studied and followed … forever.

Detective David Mills
→ Uh... yeah. [to Somerset] Delusions of grandeur.

John Doe
→ You should be thanking me.

Detective David Mills
→ Why is that, John?

John Doe
→ Because you're going to be remembered after this. Realize, detective, the only reason that I'm here right now is that I wanted to be.

Detective David Mills
→ No. No, we would have got you eventually.

John Doe
→ Oh, really? So, what were you doing? Biding your time? Toying with me? Allowing five "innocent" people to die until you felt like springing your trap? Tell me, what was the indisputable evidence you were going to use on me right before I walked up to you and put my hands in the air'!

Detective David Mills
→ John. Calm down. I seem to remember us knocking on your door.

John Doe
→ Oh, that's right. And I seem to remember breaking your face. [leans forward] You're only alive because I didn't kill you.

Detective David Mills
→ Okay, sit back.

John Doe
→ I spared you.

Detective David Mills
→ Sit back!

John Doe
→ Remember that, detective, every time you look in the mirror at that face of yours for the rest of your life, or should I say, for the rest of what life I've allowed you to have.

Detective David Mills
→ Sit back! Sit back, you fucking freak! Shut your fucking mouth! You're no messiah. You're a movie of the week. You're a fucking T-shirt, at best.

John Doe
→ Don't ask me to pity those people. I don't mourn them any more than I do the thousands that died at Sodom and Gomorrah.

Detective Lt. William Somerset (Morgan Freeman)
→ Is that to say, John, that what you were doing was God's good work?

John Doe
→ The Lord works in mysterious ways.
