Fireproof (film) Quotes

Kirk Cameron as Caleb Holt

  • (Kirk Cameron) "I am sorry. I have been so selfish. For the past seven years, I have trampled on you with my words and with my actions. I have loved other things, when I should have loved you. In the last few weeks, God has given me a love for you that I have never had before. And I have asked Him to forgive me. And I am hoping, I am praying, that somehow you would be able to forgive me too. Catherine, I do not want to live the rest of my life without you."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "You never assume I would do anything worthy of respect. Anything honorable."
  • (Catherine Holt) "Honorable? Honorable? What were you just looking at, Caleb? What was on that computer screen? Was that honorable? Who do you think you're fooling? Do you know why your sweet little gestures mean nothing to me? It's because that's the kind of man you've become. When you're alone, that's what you default to, and there is nothing honorable about it."
  • (Catherine Holt) "So, what day are you on?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "43."
  • (Catherine Holt) "There's only 40."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Who says I have to stop?"
  • (Catherine Holt) "Caleb, I don't know how to process this. This is not normal for you."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Welcome to the new normal."
  • (John Holt) "Caleb, is there anything in you that wants to save your marriage?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Maybe. If Catherine wanted to. But she doesn't. She wants divorce."
  • (John Holt) "Is that what you want?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "I want peace. But what difference does it make? She signs the papers, dad, it's all over."
  • (John Holt) "Have you agreed to start the process with her?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "No, but I think we both understand where this is all headed. I've got plans to meet with my lawyer tomorrow."
  • (John Holt) "Caleb, I want you to do something for me."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "What?"
  • (John Holt) "I want you to hold off on the divorce for 40 days."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Why?"
  • (John Holt) "I'm gonna send you something in the mail. Something that'll take you that long to do."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "What is it?"
  • (John Holt) "It's what saved our marriage."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Dad, if this is a religious thing, I'd rather you didn't."
  • (John Holt) "Look at it as a gift from your father. Take one day at a time. Then see what happens. Please son. If for no other reason; do it for me. I'm asking as your father."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "40 days?"
  • (John Holt) "40 days."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Dr Keller?"
  • (Gavin Keller) "Yes?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Caleb Holt. I need a word with you, please."
  • (Gavin Keller) "Look, it's really not a good time; I'm just about to make my rounds."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "I think you need to make time. This is concerning Catherine, my wife."
  • (Gavin Keller) "All right. What can I do for you?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "I know what you're doing. And I have no intention of stepping aside as you try to steal my wife's heart. I've made some mistakes, but I still love her. So just know that I am going after her too. And since I'm married to her, I'd say I've got a head start. By the way,"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "thanks for helping me with my hand; my ring finger's feeling a whole lot better."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "When A Man Is Trying To Win The Heart Of A Woman,He Studies Her.He Learns Her Likes,Dislikes,Habits And Hobbies.But After He Wins Her Heart And Marries Her,He Often Stops Learning About Her.If The Amount He Studied Her Before Marriage Was Equal To A High School Degree,He Should Continue To Learn About Her Until He Gains A College Degree,A Master's Degree And Ultimately A Doctorate Degree.It Is A Lifelong Journey That Draws His Heart Ever Closer To Hers."
  • (Catherine Holt) "What are you doing?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "I see you left me no pizza."
  • (Catherine Holt) "Caleb, I just lit that candle. I like the way it smells."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Well, I don't. Did you leave me any dinner at all?"
  • (Catherine Holt) "I assumed you were eating with Michael."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Does it not occur to you that there are two people living in this house and both of them need to eat?"
  • (Catherine Holt) "You know what, Caleb, if you would communicate with me, maybe I can have something for you."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Why do you have to make everything so difficult?"
  • (Catherine Holt) "Oh, I'm making everything difficult? Seems to me like I'm carrying the weight around here while you're off doing your own thing."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Excuse me? I'm the one working out there to pay this mortgage, and I pay for both of the cars."
  • (Catherine Holt) "Yeah, that's all you do. I pay for all of our bills with my salary."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Which you agreed to do. That's fair. Do you not like this house? Do you not like your car?"
  • (Catherine Holt) "Oh, Caleb, who takes care of this house? Me. Who washes all the clothes? Me. Who gets all the groceries? Me. Not to mention that I'm helping my parents every weekend. You know I've got all this pressure on me, and the only thing you ever do for anybody is for yourself."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Let me tell you something, you don't know the first thing about pressure. All right, you think I put out house fires for myself? Or rush to car wrecks at 2am for myself? Or pull a child's body out of a lake for myself? You have no idea what I go through."
  • (Catherine Holt) "Oh, yeah, but what do you do around here other than watch tv and waste time on the internet? You know what; if looking at that trash is how you get fulfilled, that's fine, but I will not compete with it."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Well, I sure don't get it from you."
  • (Catherine Holt) "And you won't. Because you care more about saving for your stupid boat and pleasing yourself than you ever did about me."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "SHUT UP. I'M SICK OF YOU. YOU DISRESPECTFUL, UNGRATEFUL, SELFISH WOMAN."
  • (Catherine Holt) "I'm not selfish --"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT TO ME. YOU CONSTANTLY NAG ME AND YOU DRAIN THE LIFE OUT OF ME. I'M TIRED OF IT. IF YOU CAN'T GIVE ME THE RESPECT I DESERVE -- LOOK AT ME. THEN WHAT'S THE POINT OF THIS MARRIAGE?"
  • (Catherine Holt) "I want out. I just want out."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "If you want out, THAT'S FINE WITH ME."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "You never leave your partner. Especially in a fire."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Did you have breakfast already?"
  • (Catherine Holt) "Yes."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "What did you eat?"
  • (Catherine Holt) "I had the last bagel and a yoghurt."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Do you plan on making a grocery trip soon?"
  • (Catherine Holt) "Caleb, you work 24 hours and then you're off for 48. You've got more time to go than I do."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Hey, I just asked you a simple question. You don't need to get smart with me. You could at least have saved me some breakfast."
  • (Catherine Holt) "Well, I never know when you're coming home or going out. You don't tell me these things."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Catherine, what is your problem? Did I offend you by walking in the door this morning?"
  • (Catherine Holt) "No, you just can't expect me to work every day and still get the groceries while you sit at home looking at trash on the internet and dreaming about getting your boat."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "You chose to take this job. And no-one said you had to work full-time."
  • (Catherine Holt) "We need the income. Especially since you took away a third of your salary saving for a boat we don't need. You got $24 000 in savings while we have things in our house that need fixing."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Like what?"
  • (Catherine Holt) "The back door needs to be painted, the yard needs better landscaping, and I keep telling you I want to put more shelves in the closet."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Those are called preferences, Catherine. Those are not needs. There's a difference. If you want to spend your money on that stuff; go ahead, that's fine. But I've been saving up for my boat for years; you're not taking that away from me."
  • (Catherine Holt) "This is so pointless. I don't have time for this."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "I want to thank you, dad. The Love Dare changed my life."
  • (John Holt) "God changed your life. The Love Dare was just a tool He used."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "What? You were married to someone before Tina?"
  • (Ken Bevel) "For one whole year. I got married for the wrong reasons, then I turned around and got a divorce for the wrong reasons. Man, I thought I was just following my heart."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Michael, I have worked with you for 5 years. You've never told me that."
  • (Ken Bevel) "Because I'm not proud of it. It was before I gave my life to the Lord. Man, I was only concerned about my rights and my needs. Man, I ruined her life. But when I gave my life to God, I tried to find her but she'd already remarried. So believe me when I tell you I got a big scar. Man, God meant marriage to be for life. That's why you gotta keep your vows to Catherine. You gotta beg God to teach you to be a good husband. And don't just follow your heart, man; 'cause your heart can be deceived. But you gotta lead your heart."
  • (Latasha Brown) "Honey, I agree with you. You gotta get out. He don't deserve you."
  • (Deidra Harris) "You can say that again. A real man's got to be a hero to his wife before he can be to anybody else, or he ain't a real man."
  • (Ashley Phillips) "Catherine, do you need a place to stay? I can't imagine living in the same house as that man."
  • (Catherine Holt) "No, I decided last night that I am not the one who's leaving. He's the problem, not me."
  • (Deidra Harris) "That's right, girl, stand your ground. Make him respect you. If there's one thing a man understands --"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "It's respect. That's the issue. That's the reason our marriage is failing. She shows me no respect at all. And the saddest part about it is --"
  • (Catherine Holt) "He doesn't have a clue. He thinks our marriage has been fine for the most part. You know, he probably thinks --"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Our marriage has been fine until this year. Now all of a sudden she goes off the deep end."
  • (Ken Bevel) "Do you really think this happened all of a sudden?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "I don't know what to think. I don't understand her. She's emotional about everything, she's easily offended, and way too sensitive."
  • (Catherine Holt) "I mean, he's so insensitive. You know, he doesn't truly care how I feel, he doesn't listen to me. Even if I say it over and over and over again."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "And then she starts nagging me and saying I don't listen to her, or something like that. It drives me crazy. I feel like I'm going --"
  • (Catherine Holt) "Insane. You know, he doesn't understand my needs. It feels like we are completely and totally --"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Incompatible. She's probably whining to her friends, making me sound like a criminal. I can see them all right now: crying, having some sort of group hug."
  • (Latasha Brown) "It's gonna be okay, sweetie. It's gonna be all right."
  • (Ashley Phillips) "You'll get through this."
  • (Deidra Harris) "We have your back. Whatever you want. Whatever you need. Whatever you need."
  • (Ken Bevel) "So, you think it's past the point of no return?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "I don't have a reason to return."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "If there's a God out there somewhere, he's not interested in me and my problems."
  • (John Holt) "I disagree. I'd say he's very interested."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Then where's he been in my life?"
  • (John Holt) "I'd say he's been at work all around you. You just haven't realized it. You haven't exactly given him an open invitation."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Yeah, well, Catherine's not buying any of it."
  • (John Holt) "And why do you think that is?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "She doesn't love me. She doesn't even like me. Dad, she just about ignored everything I've done."
  • (John Holt) "Are you reading everything on each page?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "You mean the Bible verses at the bottom. I'm not, dad. I told you, that is not what I need."
  • (John Holt) "Then what do you need?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "I need Catherine to wake up to the fact that we're about to get an ugly divorce. And I'm trying to prevent that. But I cannot do it by myself."
  • (John Holt) "That may be true. But I think you need more than that."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Dad, if you're gonna tell me I need Jesus, please don't. I don't need a crutch to get through life."
  • (John Holt) "Son, Jesus is much more than a crutch. He's become the most significant part of our lives."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Dad, why do you keep saying that? The most significant part -- How is that?"
  • (John Holt) "When I realized who I was, and who He was, I realized my need for Him. I needed His forgiveness and salvation."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "See, I don't understand. Why do I need His salvation? What? Am I gonna be thrown into hell? For what? 'Cause I got divorced?"
  • (John Holt) "No. Because you violated His standards."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "What? 'Thou shall not kill'? Dad, I help people. I am a good person."
  • (John Holt) "According to you. But God doesn't judge by your standards. He uses His."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "And what are His?"
  • (John Holt) "Well, truth, love --"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Okay. I'm honest."
  • (John Holt) "Faithfulness --"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "I care about people. I am those things."
  • (John Holt) "Sometimes. But have you loved God? The one who gave you life? His standards are so high, He considers hatred to be murder, and lust to be adultery."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Dad, what about all the good I've done?"
  • (John Holt) "Son, saving someone from a fire doesn't make you right with God. You've broken His commandments. And one day, you'll answer to Him for that."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Marriage isn't fireproof."
  • (Ken Bevel) "Fireproof doesn't mean the fire will never come. It means when the fire comes that you will be able to withstand it."

Alex Kendrick as Pastor Strauss

Ken Bevel as Michael Simmons

  • (Ken Bevel) "40 days? Does Catherine know?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "I'm not gonna tell her. If she wants to go ahead and file, it's up to her."
  • (Ken Bevel) "Divorce is a hard thing, man."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Well, if it brings peace --"
  • (Ken Bevel) "But Caleb, you want the right kind of peace."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "What do you mean by that?"
  • (Ken Bevel) "You know what that ring on your finger means?"
  • (Kirk Cameron) "It means I'm married."
  • (Ken Bevel) "Yeah, well, it also means you made a lifelong covenant. You putting on that ring, by saying your vows. The sad part about it is when most people promise for better or for worse, they really only mean for the better."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Catherine and I were in love when we got married. Today, we're two very different people. All right? It's just not working out anymore."
  • (Ken Bevel) "Caleb, salt and pepper are completely different. Their makeup is different; their taste and their color. But you always see 'em together. And when you -- Hang on a second."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "What are you doing? Michael, what did you do that for?"
  • (Ken Bevel) "Caleb, when two people get married; it's for better or for worse, for richer or for poor, in sickness and in health."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "I know that. But marriages aren't fireproof. Sometimes you get burned."
  • (Ken Bevel) "Fireproof doesn't mean a fire will never come, but that when it comes you'll be able to withstand it."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "You didn't have to glue them together."
  • (Ken Bevel) "Don't do it, Caleb. If you pull them apart now, you'll break either one or both of them."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "I am not a perfect person, but better than most. And if my marriage is failing, it is not all my fault."
  • (Ken Bevel) "But Caleb, man, I've seen you run into a burning building to save people you don't even know. But you're gonna let your own marriage just burn to the ground."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Michael, you are my friend. And I have allowed you to speak freely to me on this job. Don't abuse it."
  • (Ken Bevel) "The sad part about it is, when most people promise for better or for worse, they really only mean for the better."
  • (Ken Bevel) "But just remember: a woman's like a rose; if you treat her right, she'll bloom, if you don't, she'll wilt."
  • (Kirk Cameron) "Where'd you get that?"
  • (Ken Bevel) "Counseling."
