Hellboy

  • I hate those comic books. They never get the eyes right.
  • I'm a terrible shot but the Samaritan here uses really big bullets. What do you say we work this out in a nice peaceful — Oh, crap.
    • To Sammael
  • Waiting for me, chunk-face?
    • To Sammael
  • OPEN WIDE!!!
    • Breaking Sammael's lower jaw.
  • I'm fireproof. You're not.
    • To Sammael
  • Didn't I kill you already? You goddamned monster!
    • To Sammael
  • You missed!
    • To Sammael, before realizing a pillar is collapsing
  • How big can it be?
  • It's not — It's not what you think. Plus, you're nine. You're too young to be giving me advice.
  • Damn! Would you please be a little more careful?
  • Gonna be sore in the morning.
  • No cream and milk, moron. She takes it black. Told ya! Wait, she took his picture! DAMN!
  • What's a good strong word for need?

FBI Agent John Myers

  • Hellboy. He's real!
  • Are you gonna be okay? Alone?

Liz Sherman

  • I'm learning to control it. I'm learning where it comes from. For the first time in my life, I'm not afraid.
    • Letting her hand erupt into blue flame.
  • I don't like the term firestarter. I just don't.

Professor Bruttenholm

  • What is it that makes a man a man? Is it his origins — the way things start? Or is it something else, something harder to describe?
  • The Nazis were desperate. Combining science and black magic they intended to upset the balance of the war.
  • Abe possesses a unique frontal lobe. Unique — that is a word you'll hear frequently around here.
  • As you entered the lobby there was an inscription: "In the absence of light, darkness prevails." There are things that go bump in the night, Agent Myers. Make no mistake about that. And we are the ones who bump back.
    • Referring to the inscription in the lobby of the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense: In Absentia Luci, Tenebrae Vincunt.

Dialogue

Abe Sapien: Behind this door — a dark entity, evil, ancient, and hungry.
Hellboy: Oh, well. Let me go in and say hi.

John Myers: What the hell is that thing?
Hellboy [Peels off a tentacle latched to his arm] : Let me go ask.

Hellboy [being hit on the head with a fire extinguisher]: Hey! I'm on your side!
Train conductor: Sure! [hits him on the head again]

Professor Bruttenholm: In medieval stories, there is often a young knight who is inexperienced, but pure of heart.
John Myers: Oh, come on. I am not pure of heart.
Abe Sapien: Yes, you are.
Professor Bruttenholm: Rasputin is back for him. What I'm asking of you is to have the courage to stand by him when I am gone. He was born a demon; we can't change that. But you will help him, in essence, to become a man.

John Myers: Miss Sherman? Can I call you Liz? It's a beautiful name.
Liz Sherman: 60 percent of the women in the world are named Liz.
John Myers: Well, it's impressive by my standards. My name's John. John T. Myers. Dr. Bruttenholm asked me to invite you back to the Bureau.
