The Wisdom of Crocodiles Quotes

Jude Law as Steven Grlscz

  • (Jude Law) "When I was a boy I fell out of a tree but I managed just to grab a branch. I hung there for a long time, terrified. The silence and the pain in my arms. And the pounding in my ears. And then I fell. I don't remember what happened when I hit the ground. All I can remember now is the agony of holding on. And the wonderful feeling, the wonderful of letting go."
  • (Jude Law) "On second thoughts I could have let them finish you off. Difficult, isn't it? Doing the right thing."
  • (Jude Law) "When I was a boy, I went into the forest and climbed to the top of the tallest tree. Near the top, I slipped, and managed to just grab a branch. It was a long drop. I hung there until the blood in my head pounded in my ears. I can't remember much, but I remember the fear of falling."
  • (Jude Law) "The line that separates good and evil cuts through every human heart. And who is willing to destroy a piece of their own heart?"
  • (Jude Law) "My breath smells like pear drops. Acetone. Acetone is what the body produces when it eats itself."
  • (Jude Law) "Don't be afraid. I'll move back overe here. I'll open the doors. I'm going to die. Two weeks, maybe three. My body is breaking down. I bleed. I don't heal anymore. I need blood. I need the love that's in your blood. What you're feeling about me right now. In your throat, in your chest, in your blood. Like something you can touch. Remember the crystals? Rage, resentment, malice, disappointment, despair. Emotions. Emotions are things. Your blood carries every emotion possible to feel."
  • (Unnamed) "Stop it."
  • (Jude Law) "What's the matter?"
  • (Unnamed) "Nothing's the matter."
  • (Jude Law) "Nothing's the matter?"
  • (Unnamed) "I don't like you all over me all time. You're always touching me like I was. I don't like you grabbing me, okay?"

  • (Unnamed) "It's been a difficult day. I'm sorry. Problems at work. There's no excuse for taking it out on you. Is it alright for Saturday with Martin and Karen?"
  • (Jude Law) "Sorry? Oh yes."
  • (Unnamed) "Good."
  • (Jude Law) "Actually can we not do this? I can't do it this quickly. Accept apologies when I'm still angry. You can't say something like that and then say sorry. Do you see?"
  • (Jude Law) "Somethings are better left unsaid. "Thank you" is not one of them."
  • (Timothy Spall) "Thank you."
  • (Unnamed) "And are you sorry?"
  • (Jude Law) "Whatever my faults, malice isn't one of them."
  • (Jude Law) "Who is this that comes like a pillar of the smoke out of the wilderness? Perfumed with myrrh and frankincense. The joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of a cunning craftsman. You read."
  • (Unnamed) "Thy lips are like scarlet and thy mouth is comely. The smell of thy breath like apples."
  • (Jude Law) "And thy breasts two clusters of grapes. Thou, all fair, my love, there is no flaw in you."
  • (Jude Law) "Well, next time you're following me, you can buy me a drink."
  • (Jude Law) "Am I in trouble?"
  • (Timothy Spall) "You had your passport with you. Are you going somewhere?"
  • (Jude Law) "I was opening a bank account."
  • (Timothy Spall) "Well, I'd like to hold on to it if you don't mind."
  • (Jude Law) "I do mind."
  • (Timothy Spall) "I'd like to hold on to it all the same."
  • (Unnamed) "My mother always had some story about what happened to little girls who didn't make their beds or who didn't come home in time for tea. That's why I never judge book by its cover, I never look before I leap, and that worrying is the Devil's favourite pastime."
  • (Jude Law) "I've never heard that one before."
  • (Unnamed) "About the Devil? Come on. Let's go."
  • (Jude Law) "Shouldn't it be I always look before I leap?"
  • (Unnamed) "What did I say?"
  • (Jude Law) "Never."
  • (Unnamed) "Oh."

  • (Ashley Artus) "Excuse me, can I help you?"
  • (Jude Law) "Don't think so."
  • (Tom Wu) "What? Is he your boyfriend or something?"
  • (Jude Law) "He's been following me for two days."
  • (Ashley Artus) "Really? Why would a pinhead be following you?"

  • (Ashley Artus) "Did you?"
  • (Jude Law) "He thinks so."
  • (Ashley Artus) "If we do him he won't be following anyone for quite awhile."
  • (Jude Law) "Don't you realize something? You're all in a lot of trouble. They'll send someone else. They're very persistent, the police, especially when people kill them. And you have to kill him, don't you? Hardly seems worth it. Particulary since you have to kill me too."
  • (Ashley Artus) "What makes you think I won't?"
  • (Jude Law) "You're not stupid."
