Fullmetal Alchemist (鋼の錬金術師, Hagane no Renkinjutsushi in the original Japanese) is an anime series based on the manga created by Hiromu Arakawa. It aired from 2003-2004 and spun-off a movie and three video games.



Recurring Quotes

Alphonse Elric (Introduction, episodes 2-41): Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only truth.

Edward Elric (Introduction, episodes 42-51): The Philosopher's Stone: those who possess it, no longer bound by the laws of equivalent exchange in alchemy, can gain without sacrifice... create without equal exchange. We searched for it... and we found it. (This line is Alphonse's in the original. It is only given to Edward in the dub.)

Gluttony: Can I eat him?

Edward Elric: Fuzake n Na! (Could be considered a catch phrase of sorts, as Edward is constantly heard saying it. It's a very informal, masculine way of using the verb "Fuzakeru" which means 'Joke', 'tease', 'lie', etc. Basically it means "Don't kid around", though based on the circumstances, it can translate to anything from "Don't screw with me!", "Cut it out!", "You bastard!", or as sometimes translated in fan works, "Don't fuck with me!" In the dubbed anime, it is mostly commonly translated as "Stop jerking me around!")


To Challenge the Sun (One who Challenges the Sun) [1.01]

Edward: Alchemy; the science of understanding the structure of matter, breaking it down, then reconstructing it as something else. It can even make gold from lead. But alchemy is a science, so it must follow the natural laws: To create, something of equal value must be lost. This is the principle of Equivalent Exchange. But on that night, I learned the value of some things can't be measured on a simple scale. My brother and I knew the laws of science, of Equivalent Exchange, that gain required sacrifice, that something had to be taken from us. But we thought there was nothing more we could lose. We were wrong.

Edward: I hate deserts. It's nothing but sand. [collapses] If there was some grass I could turn it into bread. I'm starving! Huh? Hey! Al, where'd you go? Al? Hey!
Alphonse: Down here. [Al's hand emerges from the sand beneath Ed and grabs his leg]
Edward: Ahh!!
Alphonse: I sunk again.
Edward: Reason number two I hate the desert!
[Cut to later. Ed has just dug Al out]
Edward: [angrily] I don’t understand why you keep falling in!
Alphonse: I get full.
Edward: Full of what?! [kicks Al and sand falls out of his chest plate, burying Ed. Al laughs and inches away]
Edward: [bursts out and starts running after Al] Get back here!
Alphonse: What are you going to do?
Edward: Nothing!
Alphonse: Then why are you chasing me?
Edward: Stop and you'll find out!
Alphonse: I promise I won't get buried again!
Edward: Not unless it's by me!
Alphonse: Ed!
Edward: Rrrr!

Store Owner: What are you, street performers?
Edward: [spits out drink] I don't think so, pops! Do I look like a clown to you?!

Alphonse: Um, I'm not the Fullmetal Alchemist. He is.
Citizen: You mean that little shorty there?
Edward: [grabs two citizens and swings them around in a circle] Shorty?! Could a shorty do this?! What else you want to call me: a half-pint bean-sprout midget?! I'm still growing you backwater desert idiots!"

Rose: You're not there!
Alphonse: It's true, I don't have a body, but I'm here. This is my punishment for setting foot on holy ground where mortals are forbidden. We made a mistake, Rose, and we're paying for it.

Edward: I can't see a church social down here, can you?

Father Cornello: Let me introduce you to one of my creations, you of all people will be able to appreciate this...a chimera!
Edward: You combined animals, the most depraved kind of alchemy there is.
Father Cornello: Maybe so, but most effective!

Rose: Oh God...
Edward: Don't look away, Rose! You need to see what happens when you try to bring a human to life, when you cross into God's territory or whatever the hell it is! Is this what you want?! Look!!
Rose: His arm...his leg, they're machines!

Edward: Told you, Rose. Get too close to the sun, and you'll burn.

Father Cornello: You are the full metal. The Fullmetal Alchemist!

Body of the Sanctioned(Body of Taboo) [1.02]


Father Cornello: I see. Well, that does answer a riddle: Why the military would give a pup like you such a stern name: Fullmetal. But it's literal. See Rose, alchemists forbid their own from transmuting lead into gold, but there's one practice more taboo. A technique forbidden by man and nature itself: Alchemy...on human souls!

Father Cornello: Oh? Then why are you so anxious to get the stone? You want to beat the laws of equivalency just as I do and bring your mommy back.
Edward: Wrong, holy man. All we want is to get our bodies normal again. See, we don't lie about what's possible. We didn't start a cult.
Alphonse: We will ask one more time, please give us the stone.
Father Cornello: You are damned, State Alchemist. May the wrath of God fall upon your head.
Edward: Stop hiding behind that crap! Get down here and I'll show you some wrath!

Edward: Who are you calling a foxy little pipsqueak!?

Father Cornello: No! I won't let you have it! You can't take the Stone! Gyaaaaaa!
Edward: What the... It's recoiling?
Cornello: Aaaaah!
Edward: An imitation? [in disbelief] Heh heh, after all this, all the trouble you put me through, the Stone's a fake? STOP JERKING ME AROUND!

Rose: What do I have to live for now that I know Cain won't come back? You tell me that, Ed!
Edward: You'll have to find that out on your own. Move forward. You've got a good strong pair of legs, Rose. Just get up and use them.

Alphonse: Brother was trying to help you, he just doesn't always handle things well.
Rose: Just go away, would you?
Alphonse: You can still believe, and hope, Rose. I still do.

Father Cornello: Cursed souls! Who are you really? What are you after?
Gluttony: Come on, Lust, isn't it time you let me eat the old preacher?

Alphonse: Rings and watches have nothing to do with it. My brother's the Fullmetal Alchemist.

Mother [1.03]

Alphonse: [narrating] Dad left... A long time ago, when brother and I were still boys. Mom stared off into the distance a lot. But she carried on as if nothing were wrong.

Trisha: [on her death bed] Your dad... He left us money... I've never touched it, I was...saving it for you boys... Use it, and take care of each other..
Edward: Don't be silly, we'll use it with you!
Trisha: Edward...would you be a sweetheart and transmute something for your mother? Yes, I know...a ring of flowers would be nice. You see your father...always...used to make them for me... [dies]
Alphonse: [narrating] And that’s what we finally understood. The reason why Mom had always smiled at our alchemy... It had reminded her of Dad.

Alphonse: Please, help him! He's gonna bleed to death!
Winry: ...Al? Is that you?

Edward: I don't wanna be chained to the State anymore than you. But I'll do whatever it takes to fix things.
Pinako: Fix you, or the world? Make sure you ask yourself that.

Edward: [referring to Al] This pain's nothing...compared to what he's given up...

A Forger's Love (Transmutation of Love) [1.04]

Clause: You're nothing but a bunch of chickens! Posing as alchemists when you're just a cowardly little pipsqueak and his walking trashcan!
Edward: [angrily] Pipsqueak?
Alphonse: [sadly] Trashcan?
Edward: Nobody calls me a pipsqueak and gets away with it! Not even a little girl!
Clause: Oh, is that so. [mockingly] Gosh, I'm so terrified of a whiny little pipsqueak!
Edward: Shut up and take a look at yourself! If you're a girl like they all say, why do you dress like a paperboy?!

Majahal: I'm sorry, but I just don't see it. There's just no way you could be my Karin. [looks at mannequins] Karin...I'm coming. [dies]

Majahal: This is impossible! Are you telling me that this wrinkled old woman is Karin? Karin was a woman of incomparable beauty...just like a rose.
Edward: Exactly like a rose. Flowers wither Majahal...

Edward: [to Clause] You know, you're much prettier when you don't dress like a paper boy!

The Man with the Mechanical Arm (Dash! Automail) [1.05]

Hawkeye: [on the phone] Major, I'd just like to offer a bit of... feminine advice. BABIES AREN'T BORN AFTER JUST FIVE MONTHS!


Hughes: Just look on the bright side Bald, you probably needed a shower.

Bald: You understand, kid. You've got an arm just like mine. You've wanted to be stronger, too. And the military...they'll just get rid of you as soon as you're not convenient.
Edward: [through gritted teeth] No, I DON'T understand...And don't you ever lump in my reasons for this arm....with YOURS! GRAHHHH! [crushes the end of Bald's automail]

Alphonse: [to a couple of gunment] Welcome to the brig. [smacks his fist in his hand]

Roy: You can call me Roy Mustang, or just Lieutenant Colonel. Hell, you can call me the Flame Alchemist. Whatever you do, remember the pain.

Alphonse: Those people had us dancing right in the palms of their hands, didn't they? I guess it doesn't matter what we do. We'll never be the ones in control.

The Alchemy Exam [1.06]

Edward: Easy Al...You heard what Auntie Pinako said, right? State Alchemists are military and get thrown into service whenever war breaks out. You have to do what they say, even hurt people, for some good you don't understand. It means you're a dog of the state, with a leash around your neck...

Maes: Gracia!
Gracia: Honey... It's here!
Maes: The tea?
Gracia: The baby!
Maes: Aaugh! But... but the doctor said next week!
Gracia: Well, the baby just said NOW! And I'm pretty sure SHE gets to choose!

Alphonse: [panicked] When you think of it, making a life's expensive! We would have to give something up!!

Edward: Al, do you think we decided right? Chose the right path?
Alphonse: I don't know, brother. But I do know this: I don't want to be in this suit anymore. I want to feel things again. It's strange. We've been right beside each other all this time. But I can't remember what your skin feels like, or how you smell.

Night of the Chimera's Cry (The Night the Chimera Cries) [1.07]

Basque Grand: Don't they just eat at you? I hear when that kid showed off his transmutation abilities without the use of a circle, the king actually opened up his mouth and complimented him. Now that upstart Mustang is getting points for discovering him. My points, Tucker!
Shou: I...I'm sorry if they caused trouble for you, sir.
Basque Grand: I smoothed things over for you last year when you turned in that pile of trash and called it research. Fail it again and then I'll get the heat for endorsing you.
Shou: But General...
Basque Grand: What, Tucker?! Would you rather the alternative approach? You wanna pass the title of Sewing-Life Alchemist to that boy and go back to your old life? Drifting the streets of some backward town with ideas and an empty stomach? Your assessment's in two days; it's time to show or roll over.

Nina: Daddy? Are you hurting somewhere?

Edward: So, Tucker...
Shou: Something wrong?
Edward: When was the first time you made one of these...human-speaking chimeras?
Shou: I thought I told you. It's been two years now.
Edward: And when exactly did your wife leave you?
Shou: Two years ago, why?
Edward: And those letters...that Nina wrote...did any of them ever reach her?
Shou: What are you...getting at?
Edward: Tell me this... Where have Alexander and Nina gone to?!
Shou: [sighs] I hate prodigies like you Ed. Too damn perceptive.

Alphonse: It's like an alchemist deconstructed her, but who? I guess it doesn't matter. Even if we did find him, it wouldn't bring her back.
Edward: Sorry...Nina. I'm...
Alphonse: Brother, don't.
[Edward breaks down in tears]

Philosopher's Stone [1.08]

Scar: Really? You're better off. [thinking] Because if you were a state alchemist... [lifts his sleeve] This arm would kill you.

Edward: You're a man!
Barry the Chopper: Guilty as charged!

Barry the Chopper: She seems to like taking things apart so I thought I'd do the same to her! Watch closely and maybe you'll get to see what makes her tick!

Edward: You're sick...why are you doing this?!
Barry the Chopper: Why? Hmm...what a strange little question that is. I guess it's because I enjoy it. The first person I killed was my wife. She was nagging me about something and without meaning to, I chopped her to pieces. But when I saw how finely I could slice her, I wanted more. To reduce people to their most basic building blocks, and I wanted everyone to see...
Edward: That's stupid. Why would someone kill for such a ridiculous reason?
Barry the Chopper: [looks at Edward insanely] Because they can!

Barry the Chopper: Given the slightest provocation, anyone can do it.
Edward: Stay back!
Barry the Chopper: Men have morals, but send them to war and they have no problem slaying each other in the most brutal fashions. Now why do you think that is?
Edward: I have no idea...
Barry the Chopper: [cuts Edward's shoulder slightly] 'Cause deep down inside we all want to kill, most just need the go-ahead from their society. Like the State Alchemists I saw in a village, slaughtering helpless people. Splat! Big fountains of blood!

Alphonse Brother, it turns out the Philosopher's Stone may very well be real. But all the clues we need to find it are off limits to everyone except State Alchemists. Since I no longer have a mortal shell, I can't feel the terror you felt, thinking you were going to die. I'm sure it must have been painful, and lonely. I want my body back, brother. I want to be able to feel what you felt. To feel human again. If we find the Philosopher's Stone, I can have that.
Edward: When I was certain he was going to kill me, my mind went blank, and I didn't have any hope anymore. And the only thing I could do was scream my lungs out. I felt so helpless, I couldn't even bring myself to believe someone might save me. Then you showed up, Al. And I realized that if we don't take care of each other, then no one else will. So I'll do anything in my power to get our bodies back, even if it means being the military's lapdog. And we'll just have to hope our powers are good enough to help us rise above our own limits. [cries into his hands] 'Cause we're not gods. We're humans. Tiny, insignificant humans...who couldn't even save a little girl.

Be Thou for the People [1.09]

Lyra: How can you defy the military you serve?
Edward: Because I never sold my soul to them.

Edward: Come on now. Is that anyway to talk to your new boss, landlord, and all-around overseer?

Kyle: But our inn was destroyed last night...
Edward: Really? Then what's that over there?

Edward: [talking to the Taxi Driver about the Fullmetal Alchemist] Wow, he must be a man of great stature then, huh?
Taxi Driver: Actually I've heard he's surprisingly short, like a dwarf or something.
Edward: [flips out] WHO ARE YOU CALLING A DWARF?!? [causes so much ruckus that the taxi breaks down, and he chases the driver through the desert] COME BACK HERE AND SAY THAT TO MY FACE!!
Alphonse: Brother, if you keep scaring away cab drivers, we'll never get to Lior!

The Phantom Thief (Thief Psiren) [1.10]

Edward: I'm bored.
Alphonse: Bored of what? Winning? You haven't lost once!

[Ed is fighting with Psiren, a Phantom thief]
Edward: [pins her] I've got you pinned, Psiren! [realizing he has his hand on her breast, he immediately jumps to his feet] I didn't mean that!

Psiren: Sleep tight, pipsqueak!
Edward: Who're you calling a pipsqueak?! You know, I'd be tall too in heels!

Psiren: [about the Philosopher's Stone] If you find it, tell me and I'll steal it for you.

Edward: You know, it's funny. Every crook I meet wants to tell me how much I'm just like them. But there's a big difference between you and me and the burdens we bear.
Psiren: Bare, I'd love to. [opens her shirt and activates transmutation circle on her chest]

The Other Brothers Elric (Gravel Earth) - Part 1 [1.11]

Edward: You wanna start something with me?
Russell: No, I don't wanna fight with you, Ed, so why don't you turn around and go home? And leave us to take care of things around here.
Edward: That's not the way you beg somebody to do something! [pointing to ground] On your knees! [pause; points to ground repeatedly] I said get down on the ground!
Russell: What, so we can see eye to eye? Surely you must be used to people looking down on you!

Alphonse: The fake you doesn't need a circle either!

The Other Brothers Elric (Gravel Earth) - Part 2 [1.12]

Edward: Like I said, let's take care of those kids first. It's been a while since I've killed anyone. I kinda miss it...wanna watch?

Mugear: As long as I have the Red Water, no one can stop me! Least of all a diminuitive State Alchemist and his copycat friends!
Russel: Ed!
Edward: "Diminuitive State Alchemist." Points for the big word, but you're still goin' down!

Edward: Even with your stones, I'm on a whole nother level!

FullMetal vs Flame [1.13]

Mustang: You can't say I didn't try to protect the kid, but I'll dutifully obey my orders. At least until I become Fuhrer and every one of them is obeying me.
Hawkeye: Be more discrete about those declarations sir, some would call them treason.
Havoc: She's right, chief, it's a presumptuous thing to say, you got a death wish or something?
Mustang: That's a stupid question, Havoc. I say it because it's true. And when I'm Fuhrer, there'll be changes... That day, all female officers will be required to wear- TINY MINISKIRTS!!
Havoc: [grabs his leg] You're a miracle Mustang! I'll follow you the rest of my life!
Mustang: Yes!


Edward: Well, here we are. [sighs]
Alphonse: What's the matter?
Edward: What do you think is the matter? Once again I'll have to listen to Colonel Sarcasm tell me how I screwed up. [Mustang impersonation] Struck out on the Philosopher's Stone again, huh? How am I supposed to keep funding this goose chase? Money doesn't grow on trees there, chief! [points] Huh? Where'd you go? [looks around] Oh right, there you are, I couldn't see you behind my paperwork, seeing as how your so short and all. Ha ha ha! [slumps] Yeah, I know, we're already here so I might as well get the verbal abuse over with.

Mustang: Wow Ed, you've really made some bang for our buck.
Edward: Don't start with me okay? Your the one who told to go to Lior, for a stone that turned out to be fake.
Mustang: That's true, but I didn't tell you to unseat their fabled prophet.
Edward: [relaxes] Yeah, now a town ripe for uprising is under the control of the military again, wait, was that your plan all along?!

Mustang: Dog, huh? [suddenly smiles] I LOVE DOGS!!
Fuery: Really?! You mean it?
Mustang: Of course! Dogs embody loyalty, they follow their master's commands above all else! Be a jerk to them and they don't complain, and they never once beg for a paycheck! Trust me Fuery, they're the great servants of man! Loyal canine how we salute thee! [laughs maniacally]

Hughes: Look, can you believe how big Elysia's gotten? She can even ride a tricycle now! She follows me everywhere on that thing like my own escort of cuteness, mwa! [kisses the photo]
Edward: Yep, you're the same as ever Major, nice and insane.

Hughes: Incidentally, take a look! [unveils giant photo of Elysia] My daughter, who turned 3 this year! Isn't she adorable!
[Soldiers throw stuff at the photo of Elysia and it falls]
Hughes: Oh no! Don't fall on Daddy! ELYSIA! [is crushed]

Hughes: Alchemists get set! [dashes away] READY AND FIGHT!
Edward: What?!
Mustang: Too slow. [snaps fingers and an explosion occurs]

Destruction's Right Hand [1.14]

Armstrong: I heard you on my way in here. You say you're an agent of God. Well... then why don't you try passing judgment on me? That's Alex Louis Armstrong, the Strong Arm Alchemist!
Scar: What a righteous day this is turning into! That you would come here and save me the tribulations of finding you! Blessed God, full of grace...
Major Armstrong: Don't pray just yet, you're facing the technique that's been passed down the Armstrong line for generations, that's hardly a blessing!

The Ishbal Massacre [1.15]

Edward: So, what happened? How did the Ishbalians respond to your weapon?
Marcoh: They didn't.
Alphonse: What?
Marcoh: Every gathering point of resistance the State Alchemists were sent to, they were all wiped out in a single night.

Roy: That's far enough. I'm awfully sorry about your grievances, but no one hurts my men.
Riza Hawkeye: Colonel Mustang, wait!
Scar: Colonel Mustang? Flame Alchemist Roy Mustang?
Roy: The one and only.
Riza: Colonel!
Scar: Yet another soul who departs from God's path. Death will be swift.
Roy: Brave enough to attack the Flame Alchemist. I'll make you a funeral pyre.
Riza: Stubborn man! [trips Roy and fires several rounds at Scar, who flees]
Roy: That's not the way to get promoted, Hawkeye!
Riza: Relax, sir, I just saved your life. Your flame attack's no good in the rain.
[Roy is devastated]

Edward: Doctor Marcoh, why don't you let us hide you in our hometown for a while? It's just three days on a train from here, right?
Alphonse: It might be a bit hard on us going back there though.
Edward: [laughs] Not at all, we have friends there, the Rockbells, they make automail, I'm sure they'll be... [notices Marcoh's expression]
Marcoh: [backs away] Rockbell? No, I can't, I can't go there, I'm sorry! [runs away]

Scar: I will give you a moment to pray.
Edward: Thanks for the gesture, but I don't believe. Stopped a long time ago.

Scar: I promise before God, I won't hurt your brother. But you should listen to him, Fullmetal. Your life for another is not a fair exchange. There is nothing in this world that can equal the loss of my brother and my people. Nothing will make it easier to bear!
Edward: Really? Then why are you murdering all these people?

Juliet Douglas: I have orders to take Marcoh into Fuhrer Bradley's custody. He assures you that the doctor will not come to harm.
Roy: But...Yes, of course.
Edward: Marcoh, don't!
Marcoh: It's like I told you, Ed, I can't go with you. Your hometown is not a place where I could ever be welcome.
Edward: Why not?
Marcoh: The two doctors that we executed in Ishbal... their names were Rockbell.

That Which is Lost [1.16]

Armstrong: Creation follows destruction...I'm gonna fix him up nice and pretty!

Edward: I'm going back to my mechanic. You know the one.
Roy: Sure, Ed, how can I forget? I saw you at her house, unconscious, with that same stump of an arm you have now, bawling in your sleep, "It hurts! I'm gonna pee my pants!" So tough.

Hughes: Hey, I've got a message from Roy.
Edward: You mean the Colonel?
Hughes: He said, "Don't die under my command, you're enough of a pain without the paperwork." That was it.
Edward: Tell him, "Fine, there's no way I'm dying before you do, you morally bankrupt Colonel with a God complex." And tell him to take this gorilla escort off my hands too.

Alphonse: No fair, sky. I'm the one who feels like crying.

Alphonse: I am the wormy arm... Wait! No, no, that's not... I am the cursed demon armor!

Edward: But how can that be? I've spent years devoted to alchemy, that damn principle. Getting my arm and leg back and my brother's body. That's our dream. We keep looking for something we can do to balance the equation...to earn it back, but I've never turned it around the other way. Where was the equivalency then? What have we ever gained for our losses? It's always been a one way current, just a series of us giving to the void. Everything's been taken from us!

House of the Waiting Family (The Home Where the Family Waits) [1.17]

Pinako: Heh! Yet it seems like you've gotten smaller!
Pinako: You're shorter than your temper.
Pinako: Automail moron!
Edward: Grandma flea!
Armstrong: Edward Elric! [takes off shirt and poses] How dare you speak to your elder with such blatant disrespect! Let ME remedy this fight with my genteel decorum!
Pinako: Who the heck is this guy? He really doesn't get the joke, does he?

Marcoh's Notes [1.18]

Denny Bloch: [to Ed] I'm sorry sir, sorry! I just thought you'd be fuller...and more...more metal!

Hughes: Be careful, Roy. You've got some enemies here, and in very high places. My advice to you is to make as many friends as you can around here, friends who will support you when the time comes. Which is why I make this crucial suggestion: [whispering] You find yourself a wife!
Roy: [slams phone] Give it a rest!
Hawkeye: Please, Colonel, don't take it out on the phone.

The Truth behind Truths [1.19]

Alphonse: [voiceover] A simple rock, red as blood, which promised to turn pain into delight, war into victory, and death into life. It was a thinking person's dream, reason conquering all. And it was in deference to this that it was called the Philosopher's Stone.

Maria Ross: So, Ed, that's really the end of it? [Edward and Alphonse tense up] You won't regret it then...giving up before you're finished? That's interesting. I didn't realize what you were searching for was so incidental, you'd abandon it this easily.

Maria Ross: You really are a child, aren't you? You're frightened of it- that all the answers will disappear. You're terrified you might have to admit that everything you've done was wasted effort.
[Edward tenses again]
Maria Ross: Am I wrong?
[Edward covers his eyes with his automail arm.]
Maria Ross: It's okay to feel lost and not have reasons.

Edward: [crawling through air vent] Damn it! This is smaller than I thought! See, if I was normal-sized I wouldn't have fit, and we would have had to call this off. It really is a good thing I'm so small. [stops; realizes what he just said] AAAUGHH! NO IT'S NOT!

Number 48: I am Number 48.
Edward: 48..catchy.

Soul of the Guardian (The Guardian's Soul) [1.20]

Alphonse: You're empty inside...
Barry the Chopper/Number 66: Yes, that's what they said when they sentenced me.

Barry the Chopper/Number 66: Is that so!? What do you mean "is that so"!? People get terrified when they find out a serial killer comes back from the dead! And, an empty suit of armor moving on its own! You should be saying "Ahh!!" or, "AHH!!" or, "Wait- he doesn't have a body!" What's wrong with your body- [Al removes his helmet] -AHH! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOUR BODY!?
Alphonse: [sarcastically] Take it easy, you're going to hurt MY feelings.

Barry the Chopper/Number 66: Then who cares where you came from! I know your weakness now! You better beg for mercy, your life belongs to me. If I destroy the blood seal on your armor then you die!
Alphonse: The same goes for you, right?
Barry the Chopper/Number 66: Auughh! But, I still have the advantage, you rotten beast! You don't know where my blood seal is!
Alphonse: You don't know where my seal is either.
Barry the Chopper/Number 66: ARGGHHH! Grrrghhh! Then I'll just chop you up until I find it! And you can't do that since you don't have a knife!
Alphonse: [sighs] Why do I have to get the crazy one..?

Older Slicer: No, you don't understand. You must destroy us.
Young Slicer: He's right. You must destroy us. There is nothing for the defeated but death that is our rule.
Edward: I'm not killing anyone. That's not what I do.
Older Slicer: You're too kind with your words. Calling us anyone, not anything. As if we could still be called human in this twisted state. I didn't say kill, I said destroy. Destroy these things we've become.
Edward: To do that, I'd have to admit you weren't human. And for me to do that, I'd have to admit the same of my brother and I can't do that.

Barry the Chopper/Number 66: What a naive worm you are! What if you're a fake, an imitation? How would you know the difference? Your brother's the one who crafted you in this form. How do you know you don't love him because he made it so you would, tailored your memories and personality to suit him best?
Alphonse: No! You're lying. I'm...I'm...I'm Alphonse Elric!

The Red Glow [1.21]

Barry the Chopper/Number 66: What about me, you ask? It's really quite simple. I love to tear the flesh of the living, to kill for the simple, intoxicating pleasure of feeling blood between my fingers...I kill, therefore I am! Whether I'm real or a human doesn't matter. I'm a killer, and that's all I need to know!

Scar: There's no need for you to prove that you exist, because soon you won't.

Edward: It's a chimera. You mean this one created all the others?
Shou: No...not all of them. It's been a long time...Edward.

Edward: I am no ordinary alchemist.

Created Humans [1.22]

Envy: What gave me away?
Edward: The Brigadier was killed by Scar. I had a front row seat. [brief flashback] Who are you? What's your name?
Envy: Well that depends, I can be whoever you want. So who would you like, Mr. Fullmetal Pipsqueak? Huh? Maybe a taller a version of you?
[Ed growls and attacks Envy]
Envy: My, my, the determined little pipsqueak wants to start a fight. But I don't know, I'm really more of a pacifist.
Edward: You better stop calling me pipsqueak, it puts me in a really bad mood!
[Ed prepares to perform alchemy but his automail arm suddenly goes limp. Envy leaps in and kicks Ed multiple times, knocking him to the floor.]
Envy: Just remember you started this sparring match, pipsqueak. Do you have any idea of who you are dealing with, huh?! The only reason your still around, the only reason why we haven't killed you yet is because we were told not to! But I can never forgive you... and there'll never be a time when I’m able to forgive you, for carrying that bastard’s blood in your veins!

Edward: And why the hell should I trust you guys?
Lust: Oh, but you misunderstand me Fullmetal. We're not asking... We're telling. Do you know what happens to an attached soul... when you do this? [begins to scratch the Older Slicer's blood seal]
Edward: Stop it! You can't do that! He's still a human being!
Older Slicer: Edward Elric, I want you to... [Lust desroys his blood seal]
Lust: [knocks Al's helmet off and touches his blood seal] This won't take long.
Edward: No! Please don't hurt him! He's my little brother! Please don't take him away! I'm begging you!

Edward: Mom, you're back.

Heart of Steel (Fullmetal Heart) [1.23]

Winry: You didn't drink your milk... Edward.
Edward: You drink it. I hate milk. It's like drinking vomit.
Winry: What are you talking about? Milk's good for you! Drink it!
Edward: Forget it! I hate what I hate! It's not like I'll die 'cause I don't drink that crap!
Winry: Jeez! And this is the reason you're always gonna be the size of a bean!
Edward: A BEAN?!
Winry: Yeah, a BEAN. Right, Al?
Alphonse: Just do what she says, Ed. Drink the dumb milk.
Edward: Yeah, sure! Easy for you to say, Al. You're lucky. You didn't have to drink anything to get that big!
Alphonse: Shut up. It wasn't my choice to be this way!

Bonding Memories (Affixing Memories)[1.24]

Scar: Alphonse Elric. Earlier, I did sense something. Tears that cannot be seen...but felt. Those tears were...human.

Edward: Al, all this time I've been too afraid to ask you, but I need to know the truth, okay? It's my fault you don;t have a real body anymore... Do you hate me? Ahh! [A bomb explodes behind them, destroying the wall Edward had created]
Alphonse: What?
Edward: Do you? I wouldn't blame you if you did, Al, but I gotta know. Do you hate me for all that's happened?
Alphonse: That's what you've been trying to ask me?
Winry: Al! Behind you! [Barry the Chopper/Number 66 runs to attack Al from behind]
Alphonse: Brother, I could never... I could never hate you!

Words of Farewell (Farewell Ceremony) [1.25]

Lust: It's a pleasure to meet you, or should I make that goodbye, Lieutenant Colonel.

Elysia: Mom, how come? Why are they burying daddy? Who are those people? Why are they burying him, why?
Gracia: He's gone, baby.
Elysia: They can't! I don't like it! Daddy said he had lots of work to do and if they bury him, he can't do it when he wakes up!
Gracia: [crying] Elysia!
Elysia: Stop them, mommy! Daddy has to do his work, he told me! Why are they burying Daddy, Mommy? Why? ...Daddy, wake up!

Roy: Killed in Action, and promoted two ranks for it. Brigadier General Hughes. You were the guy who was supposed to work below me and to push me to the top. Then you get yourself killed and surpass me in the ranks. I don't know what's more absurd. You or the State.

Hughes: Or do you just want to wait and die? Because if that's the case there are plenty of easier means.
Roy: I had it in my mouth, Maes and I couldn't pull the trigger, I was too afraid to end it.
Hughes: I would hope so.
Roy: That's just the kind of cowardly human that I am.
Hughes: Every sane person is.
Roy: But still, even my life, detestable as it is, will have some use. Maes, I've got a plan.
Hughes: Let's hear it Roy.

Her Reason [1.26]

Referee: Nah, I couldn't possibly ask this shrimp to take on the champ... [laughs]
Edward: I'M NOT A SHRIMP! [restrained by Al]
Referee: Whoa, you're a pretty feisty shrimp, aren't ya? Looks like you salvaged that automail from the bottom of a scrap heap!
Winry: [seething with anger] Alphonse. Let go of your brother.
Alphonse: [nervous] Yes, ma'am.

Winry: Edward, if you lose, I'll kick your ass!

Teacher [1.27]

Izumi: When you live, your life will end sooner or later... The body will return to the earth. Grass and flowers will grow on top of it. The soul will nourish the hearts... and it will live on in the hearts of other people. Everything in this world flows around and circulates. That goes for human lives too.

Edward: Whoever invented stew was a genius. I mean, it's got milk in it, but it still tastes good.

Izumi: You helped bring a new life into this world, and that's an invaluable experience.
Edward: Naw... we just ran around, screaming our heads off, thinking she was gonna die.

One is All, All is One [1.28]

Izumi: You two have to survive on this island, all by yourselves for one full month, all right? Oh. And you can't use any alchemy.
Young Elrics: WHAT!?

Izumi: One is all, all is one. Oh, and boys, if you don't figure that out by the end of this month, I'm sending you back to Risembool. Bye!

Alphonse: [after seeing Ed's wound by a fox] Are you alright? That bite looks bad-
Edward: THAT STUPID FOX!! [proceeds to chase after said fox]

Edward: [after getting bitten by a fox] When I find that damn thing I'm biting it back!

Edward: [rubbing two sticks together while Al blows on them] FIRE!!
[Cut to young Elrics in front of a successful fire]
Young Elrics: Time to eat! FOOD!
[They are interrupted by the masked man]
Young Elrics: AAAAAHHH!

Alphonse: The world is the all!
Edward: And I am the one!

Untainted Child (Innocent Child) [1.29]

Mason: I was just doing my job. Izumi told me to toughen you up a little bit.
Edward: Nearly dying of starvation and getting our asses beat was supposed to toughen us up?!
Alphonse: How could you do that to kids?! What kind of monster are you?!
Izumi: Stop bitching about the past and worry about someone other than yourselves!
Elrics: [nervously] Yes, ma'am.

Wrath: Did you come to play? Everyone's dead... so I got bored. Did you come to play with me?

Alphonse: It's true! I know Brother lies sometimes, but he's telling the truth this time!

Young Edward: (flashback to the night they tried to bring back their mother) No... it isn't what I wanted... it's all my fault... I'm sorry... Give him back... He's my brother... My leg, my arms, my heart... I'll give you whatever you want... just give him back... HE'S MY BROTHER!

Assault on Southern Headquarters [1.30]

Kimbley: [claps his hands, touching the Southern HQ wall] Hmm... looks like I'll need some more sulfur. [clotheslines a passing soldier] That'll do!

Sin [1.31]

Envy: Well, hello, Ultimate Shield.
Greed: Hello yourself, Ultimate... Oh, wait. You like to be called "abomination", don't you?
Envy: You were sealed in a prison for more than a century and you still haven’t learned your lesson, Greed?
Greed: Yes, forgive me if my name-calling’s gotten a little stale. It's been hard to keep my jokes current in a cell.

[Edward sees Wrath choking Izumi]
Edward: [throws a rock] Get off her!
[Wrath jumps back. Izumi coughs a few times]
Edward: [transmutes his arm into a blade and runs toward them] You bastard!!

Wrath: Either because of love or out of foolish curiosity, human transmutations are attempted. And when these attempts all backfire, a different life is created. A being that has its own body and mind, but no soul. That is how the damned are born. That is a homunculus!

Wrath: I remember it, I can picture it all, the only thing I could do was sit and wait in the absolute darkness inside the Gate. I just kept waiting and waiting, all the while my body was slowly growing. And then one day, an idiot came! He had already given his leg and now he stuck his arm across the threshold. He was screaming and crying, "Give me back my little brother!" I took his limbs for myself.

Wrath: [to Ed] Thank you for the arm and leg! [to Izumi] Thank you for this incomplete life! Nothing can match my gratitude. Not even my hate.

Dante of the Deep Forest [1.32]

Alphonse: I see... I should think for myself!
Dorochet: Now you're talking... Then we're clear, you're gonna come with us... [knocked out by Al]
Alphonse: I decided not to go with strangers. That's my decision and mine alone!

Al, Captured (Kidnapped Al) [1.33]

Alphonse: A tattoo of the Ouroboros.
Greed: Hmm... so you know what that is. Well, this should go quickly, then.
Alphonse: That makes you a friend of Envy, Lust and the others, doesn't it?
Greed: I wouldn't say friends. More like sworn enemies, if you want to get down to the grit.

Greed: They don't call me Greed for nothing. I want money. I want women, status, and power. I want everything this world's selling and eternity's topping the list!

Alphonse: Teacher!
Greed: I'm sorry, but who the hell are you?
Izumi: I'm...PISSED OFF!

Alphonse: Be careful, brother! He's a homunculus just like the others!
Edward: I see, no wonder...
Greed: Hey, listen, I've got a hostage here. Is everyone forgetting about that? Come on, isn't anybody paying attention here! Hellooo?

Greed: You've never killed anyone, have you, kid?
Edward: What's that got to do with it?
Greed: I'm saying you lack the guts to kill. You'll never beat me like that, and you'll never beat the other homunculi either. So I'll help you find the guts now... by showing you some of your own!

Greed: Well, damn it. Those bastards went and ruined our fight.
Dorochet: (Sarcastically )Well, hell boss, don't sound worried or anything.

Theory of Avarice (The Theory of Greed) [1.34]

Edward: Carbon makes up 1/3 of every humans body. it can mean the difference between diamond and pencil lead.

Greed: Let's start!
Edward: Let's finish!

Greed: I'm greedy as hell, always out for myself. She always said it would be the death of me. They pull the strings, now cut them. I'm counting on you, kid... [dies]
Edward: Hey now, Greed cut it out! This is a joke right?! Stop! Hey, I thought nothing could kill you! You're the Ultimate Shield! You're indestructible, right!? I can't kill you! [screams and begins sobbing]

Reunion of the Fallen [1.35]

Lust: Where did I come from? Where will I go? Not for me to know.

Edward: Comon, guys, a band of thugs in the forest? That's so cliche...

The Sinner Within (Our Inner Sinner) [1.36]

Elder: Even in the darkest of suffering, a man can sleep. But for the man who inflicts the suffering, his mind cannot rest... ever.
Scar: Then from this day forth I'll never sleep again.

The Flame Alchemist [1.37]

Hawkeye: Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. Here at Central Headquarters, there was a band of brave soldiers, all willing to make that sacrifice in the name of peace. This is a tale of love and courage. A tale of the Flame Alchemist, Colonel Mustang, and his loyal team.

Falman: Saturday 0946 hours. With papers waiting for his approval and due by noon, the Colonel decided to take a nap instead.
Breda: 1026 hours. The Colonel attempted to feed Lieutenant Hawkeye's dog. The dog was not biting.
Fuery: At 1103 hours he started obsessively cleaning the windows, with still no progress on those papers, with the deadline on fast approaching.
Havoc: Then at 1147 hours, the Colonel began to furiously sign the papers, all the while cursing that he didn't have time for this.

Havoc: Wait! The girl from the flower shop?! You don't mean Grace!? Not my Grace! I THOUGHT SHE WAS JUST PLAYING HARD TO GET WITH ME!
Falman: If she's seeing two guys at once she can't be that hard to get.
Breda: In head to head with Mustang over a girl, you're screwed.
Fuery: I'm sorry, but there's no way she'd pick you over-
Havoc: SHUT UP YOU JERKS! [tearily writing in his suveillance log with Hawkeye looking confused in the background] They don't understand my feelings, I really thought this was love.
Breda: Damn Havoc, is that a surveillance log or a diary?
Havoc: You take that back, loser!
Breda: Look who's talking!
Havoc: WHAT?!
Falman: Yes! I love a good fight.
Fuery: Come on guys, lay down your pencils and make up.
Havoc: [ripping up his surveillance log] OKAY, I'M THROUGH! I CAN'T TAKE THIS STUPID INVESTIGATION!
The Bachelor Lieutenant (The Fighting Lieutenant)
Mustang: [referring to Havoc] Wait, grief affects his performance which affects me. [to his men] Hey, why don't you find a girl for Havoc?
Fuery: What?! But I'm a highly trained officer!
Falman: I can't even find a girl for me!
Breda: Just toss him one of yours, Colonel.
Mustang: What's that?
Breda, Falman, and Fuery: Uh, nothing.

Havoc: If I look past her freakish strength and focus on what matters: her looks, her sense of fashion, her estate, her lineage... it all adds up! Suppose I- I really have hit the motherload!

Catherine: [to Havoc] In my dreams I always imagined meeting a man just like you...but with a more muscular physique like my brother's. I'm sorry, it's just that I only like good-looking men. Let's forget this ever happened.
Armstrong: [posing without a shirt] Guess it wasn't meant to be. Should I inform the cook?

Breda: 10,000 says he blows the date.
Falman: I say they don't even have one.
Fuery: My money is on him chickening out before he even sees her!
Hawkeye: You realize you're all bidding against him.
Breda, Falman, and Fuery: Safest bet!
The Mystery of Warehouse 13 (The Mystery of the 13th Warehouse)
Mustang: Damn it! I still don't see why I have to tag along on their stupid midnight ghost hunt!
Hawkeye: Because they admire you more than you realize.
Mustang: What good is admiration from other men?

Breda: And Breda said, let there be light.
Fuery: Aiiieee...!
Mustang: It's just a shadow, moron!
Falman: Yeah, calm down. These shadows can be your friend, Fuery. [makes a shadow puppet] Look, I'm cute little puppy dog. [wind blows and the shadow changes]
Fuery, Falman, and Breda: Yaaiiiieeee!
Mustang: Stop freaking out!
Falman: Easy for you to say!
Breda: We'll stop jumping when things stop being scary!
Fuery: I want to go home!
Mustang: How did I get such a pathetic staff?! [marching off] Come on! I'll prove to you there’s no such thing as ghosts!
Fuery: [running after Mustang] Don't leave us alone, Colonel!
[Falman and Breda follow while pulling Havoc along]

Mustang: [pointing the lamp at Warehouse 12] This, ladies, is the twelfth and final warehouse. [pointing to the right] And over there is nothing but empty space. Now, where is your phantom thirteenth warehouse?
Fuery: Maybe it's a warehouse like a werewolf and it needs a full moon.
Mustang: [hitting Fuery on the head] Give it up, Fuery.

Mustang: Well. I can't exactly say I was expecting that... [long pause] WHO THE HELL IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS FIASCO?!

With the River's Flow [1.38]

Alphonse: It's always like this! Why do you have to be so stubborn?
Edward: I am not being stubborn!
Alphonse: Yes you are. If you weren't we wouldn't even be in this situation. We could ask dad for help.
Edward: Are you crazy? I'll never ask that bastard for anything!
Alphonse: And that's exactly what makes you stubborn!

Secret of Ishbal (Eastern Civil War) [1.39]

Hawkeye: It's okay, Al. You don't have to pretend to eat in front of us.
Alphonse: Oh. Okay. [puts back the bread he was about to give Marta, who is hidden in Al's armor]
Marta: [quietly] Okay, hag. You're dead!

Gluttony: [sniffs the air] Yes. He's here. I can smell the flesh of Ishbalan.

The Scar [1.40]

Gluttony: I hate you! I hate you for hurting my Lust!

King Bradley: Your agile moves won't work against me, Snake-Chimera. I have the Ultimate Eye.

Holy Mother [1.41]

Scar: I swore an oath not to kill another State Alchemist. But I'll make one last exception!

Edward: Well, well, well! It's Teacher's Kid!
Wrath: It's Wrath... WRATH!!

Edward: I know what the weakness is for you homunculi. Greed told me. You lose strength if you get close to a certain person's remains... the one who was supposed to be brought back in the transmutation that created you. It makes you realize that you're fake... and that's why it hurts when you're up against the real thing.
Wrath: Those rules don't exactly apply to me...I was transmuted using my own human body as material. So you see, I don't have an actual body now... But if I had to choose one...it'd be yours!

Kimblee: Humans are so worthless!
Alphonse: I may be empty... but I'm not worthless!

Alphonse: I can't really go into it right now, except to say that... all this "eye for an eye" stuff... it's never going to work. So, please, stop fighting each other.

Wrath: [with Ed's spear in the air] Give me the body I deserve!

His Name is Unknown [1.42]

Armstrong: Sometimes you have to crawl with vermin to be able to smell a rat.

Scar: A man who inflicts suffering can not rest. His guilty mind won't allow it. But today I can finally close my eyes to the living nightmare and lay down...knowing that I won't wake again...

Rose: I'll see you, Ed.
Edward: No, this is goodbye...

Stray Dog [1.43]

Roy: I once executed two people, two doctors. "There are no sides, just patients." That's what they said as they treated our fallen enemies in Ishbal. But the people they were healing would just rise up again to fight us. The military asked them to stop, but they wouldn't. And their makeshift hospital was becoming a den for insurgents. I got my orders in the morning, and I shot them that night. After that I tried to kill myself, but I was too much of a coward. So I took an oath instead: to never follow unreasonable commands again, to reach a position where I wouldn't have to follow them, and I stayed true to that. I'm not chasing you because I was commanded to. I'm doing it because I'm pissed. Now why the hell did you two run away without asking for my help first?!

Hohenheim of Light [1.44]

Hohenheim: They start out as innocent children, but over time their powers corrupt them.

Hohenheim: Edward. So, do you still hate drinking milk?
Winry, Riza, and Sciezka: That's not what he said, Edward...

Hohenheim: You can't trust anyone who lives that long.

A Rotten Heart (One who lets her Heart Rot) [1.45]

Hohenheim: Dante, I want you to stop using my sons as pawns for your malicious games. In exchange for that promise, I'll tell you why your new body is rotting too.
Dante: Heh, perhaps but it's been centuries since our last meeting, Hohenheim. We'll have plenty of time to talk later. Right now, why don't you help me enjoy this new body? [licks her arm]
Hohenheim: Sorry, But I have a wife.
Dante: So? I was married as well wasn't I? Again and again and again and again. After all, if I stayed with one of them, he'd have noticed my slowly aging body and our secret would be out.
Hohenheim: Thats where we're different. Trisha was my first and my last. The only woman I ever really loved.
Dante: How odd. 400 years ago, when we first met, back when I was still an innocent...you whispered words of love to me. Or do my memories decieve me?
Hohenheim: No, they don't.
Dante: On that day, 400 years ago... [goes to flashback, which Dante is narrating] ...we had finally achieved our goal. By using the lives those sentenced to hang during the witch hunts, and those who were dying of the plague. By repeating our experiments relentlessly, despite countless failures. We finally grasped it, the Philosopher's Stone. But the demands of the transmutation took its toll on you. You were dying. Out of sheer impulse I attached your soul to the body of another man. And it was then, that we discovered eternal life. [end flashback]
Lust: So by using the Philosopler's Stone, you transplanted your souls again and again?
Dante: Yes, thats right.
Lust: Why did you have us find someone to make the stone if you already had one?!
Dante: After Hohenheim of Light left my side, I needed a new stone. And I didn't know how to make one on my own. That's why. [to Hohenheim] Tell me, why did you leave? Wasn't eternal life enough for you?
Hohenheim: Dante, there is no such thing as eternal life.

Hohenheim: [sees Sloth, flashbacks to life with Trisha, Edward and Alphonse] They should have told me... Our sons... They should've told me what they attempted when I came back... No... No, I think I knew, I just...didn't want to believe... Trisha... I love you. I always will...

Dante: [carrying Rose's child] I've been doing some research since you've been gone, trying to learn more about the Gate that is the source of all our alchemic power. I've discovered some fascinating things, Hohenheim. Would you like to know what lies beyond the Gate? You can't tell me you haven't been just a little bit curious. [child begins crying] Did you know a part of the Gate is actually within all of us? As our consciousness matures and we grow more attached to this world, we lose our awareness of it, but by using someone who's link is still strong, like a baby, the Gate can be summoned. [places hand on Hohenheim's cheek] I'm going to show you, my darling. See for yourself, just what is beyond the Gate. [throws baby in the air, transmutation circle on the child glows, Hohenheim stands before the gate]
Hohenheim: [as Gate opens] Trisha...our boys will be fine... They're yours after all...and mine. [is pulled into the Gate]

Human Transmutation [1.46]

[Roy takes Fuery's glasses off and places them on a surprised Lieutenant Hawkeye. He cocks his head and smirks at her.]
Roy: Not bad at all.
Hawkeye: That's very funny, sir.

Sealing the Homunculus [1.47]

Edward: Damn it, there are so many idiots whose asses I have to kick! I'll have to start carrying a list just to keep track of 'em all!

Lust: Maybe you are right. Where did I come from and where will I go when I die? Maybe all this time that is what I wanted: the freedom to find out.

Sloth: My memories are the driving force of everything I do...
[Flashback of what became Sloth after her birth.]
Sloth: These memories conflict with who I am. A false persona I am forced to bear... That is why I must kill you. Because no mother can hurt her own sons...

[Ending Credits]
Edward: To all my friends and those I love, I'm sorry, but this is the path I've chosen.

Goodbye [1.48]

Sloth: [fading] Nicely done, sweetheart. Clean up after yourselves, and take care of each other.

Izumi: Are you okay?
Edward: He was... crying. While I can't even squeeze out a single tear, that poor kid's crying like a baby, like he... he was crying 'cause I couldn't.

Envy: [disguised as Winry] Alphonse, you're the one I've always loved!

Edward: "Even as our eyes are closed, there's a whole world that lives outside ourselves and our dreams"

The Other Side of the Gate [1.49]

Edward: Rose? What are you doing here?
Rose: I've been waiting...for you....for us...Edward...I love you.
Edward: [blushes] Y-you do? [backs away] Rose, I don’t think you understand what you just said to me. We're just friends.

Dante: Your breaking my heart, Edward, talking to me this way. I was looking forward to taking her body and being loved by the son of Hohenheim.

Gluttony: Where is my Lust?

Dante: Equivalent exchange is a myth, a contrived order to give sense to a world that has none.

Dante: It's a cruel and random world, and yet the chaos is all so beautiful.

Death [1.50]

Edward: You sound just like that headcase Dante. All the same crap about no equivilent exchange! But what I don't understand is if you and that evil bitch were so perfect together, why did you feel the need to marry my mother?!

King Bradley: You've got me all wrong! To stop the human race from leading itself to ruin I intervene and take the Stone, thereby preventing its use. I think of myself as one of God's guardian angels.
Roy: There's no such thing as God!
King Bradley: We can't know that for sure. However, devils do exist. They're the alchemists who dare to get in my way!

Edward: It doesn't matter who you are... If you work hard, it pays off.

Edward: If it's childish to believe in this, so be it. I'd rather be considered a child than follow a doctrine of cynicism, chaos—apathy. I thought I didn't care, Dad, that I didn't need to believe in things. But I was wrong.

Envy: [disguised as Marcoh] Quite an amazing feat, Edward.
Edward: Doctor Marcoh? I never did know where you went...
Envy: [disguised as Hughes] Sure you did, Ed. After all, you were the one who found the old doc, and just waved goodbye as he went into the Fuhrer's custody. Now that was a great idea. The poor man ended up in that thing's [pointing to Gluttony] stomach. Wouldn't have died if you hadn't tracked him down. Of course, you were bad luck for a lot of us, weren't you? I'd still be with my wife and adorable little girl if I hadn't met you. It must be tough fighting against a friend you've already killed once!

Envy: [disguised at Trisha Elric] Don't hurt me, Edward!
Edward: Don't mess with me! [punches Envy]
Envy: [as Marcoh] Edward, please! [Edward punches him, he turns into Hughes] Calm down. [Edward hits him again, he turns into Roy] Give up, kid. You don't have what it takes to kill me.
Edward: I don't think you could have picked a better TARGET! [punches Envy again]

Edward: [punching Envy] Show me what you really look like, instead of being a coward, whose only real power is to hide behind other people's faces!
Envy: Do you really want to see?
Edward: Stop jerking me around!
Envy: You asked for it! [assumes his true form; Ed gasps]
Envy: What's wrong? I thought you wanted to see.
Edward: Y-Y-You're...his son...
Dante: Envy was the very first Homunculus created by Hohenheim almost 400 years ago, the result of the failed human transmutation of our son when he died prematurely from mercury poisoning. I suppose you could say that Envy was once your brother.
Envy: But then he abandoned me, starting fresh with his perfect wife and kids. Needless to say, I never did like being replaced...
[Envy stabs Edward's chest. Ed falls to the ground, blood leaking from his body]
Alphonse: Brother?
Rose: [snapping out of her trance-like state] Edward? Ed? EDWARD!!!
[Ed lies on the ground, motionless]

Laws and Promises (Munich 1921) [1.51]

Selim: Father?
King Bradley: [looks up from Mustang and smiles] Good news, son. I caught the rat.
Selim: I'm so glad, father. [walks over to King Bradley, who puts his hands on Selim's shoulders]
Mustang: You say that humans are... foolish. How do you explain your son?!
[King Bradley begins to quiver]
Selim: Father? What's wrong? You look like you're in pain!
King Bradley: You idiot... what have you done?!
Selim: I came to bring you your treasure. [holds up the wrapped skull] You said you couldn't live without it and I was afraid it would be destroyed in the fire!
[King Bradley begins to choke Selim]
Selim: Fa....ther....
[He tosses Selim aside. Mustang looks at his now lifeless body]
King Bradley: You are foolish, every one of you, even my own son.

Roy: I don't know how long you've lived Fuhrer, or how many times you've cheated death, but not anymore. It's the end of the line.

Hawkeye: General? General?! Damn it Roy Mustang, talk to me!

Envy: [opens the doors of the Gate] I've come to kill him! Take me to Hohenheim of Light! [pulled into Gate, black babies attach themselves to Envy] Stop messing with me! You'll do as I tell you! [transforms into Edward] You're taking me to see Hohenheim! To that bastard! [transforms into his original human form] TO MY FATHER! [transforms into a winged dragon and flies through the Gate]

Edward: Don't tell me... Don't tell me he's gone Rose. [gets up; frantic] Al! AL!

Edward: Maybe no life has equal trade. Maybe you can give up all you've got, and get nothing back. But still, even if I can't prove it's true, I still have to try, for your sake, Al.

Roy: What's the frown for?
Hawkeye: The plan was perfect, you did your part, but I should have gotten there sooner to protect you.
Roy: Nothing's perfect, the world's not perfect, but it's there for us, trying the best it can. That's what makes it so damn beautiful. [playing with Riza's hair]
Hawkeye: [shoves apple in his mouth] Shut up and eat.

Hohenheim: But nothing's ever perfect, haven't you realized that yet? Earth turns on a tilted axis, just doing the best it can.

Hohenheim: A Liquid Fuel Rocket... by Robert Hutchins Goddard.
Ed: He's an American. But there's another guy studying the same thing in Transylvania right now.
Hohenheim: Wouldn't happen to be named Dracula, would he?

Hohenheim: Haven't you studied Einstein's theories?
Edward: No one believes him.

Alphonse: Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only, truth. But the world isn't perfect, and the law is incomplete. Equivalent Exchange doesn't encompass everything that goes on here, but I still choose to believe in its principle, that all things do come at a price, that there's an ebb and a flow, a cycle, that the pain we went through, did have a reward, and that anyone who's determined and perseveres, will get something of value in return, even if it's not what they expected. I don't think of Equivalent Exchange as a law of the world anymore. I think of it as a promise, between my brother and me. A promise that someday, we'll see each other again.

Conqueror of Shamballa [Movie]

Edward: Let's go. This whole castle's about to explode.
Alphonse: Why!?
Edward: 'Cuz I don't like it, I made some adjustments to the steam tanks. [smirk]
Edward: There's no point arguing now! Come on, let's go!
Alphonse: Go where?! We're floating on water, and if I get wet, I could wash off my Blood Seal!
[The castle suddenly explodes. Cut to Ed and Al floating on a piece of metal.]
Edward: We're sinking! We're sinking! We're sinking! We're sinking!
Alphonse: I know, I know, I'm trying!
Edward: Faster Al! AAAHHH! Give me your head! [grabs Al's helmet and shovels the water out]
Alphonse: HEY! WILL YOU STOP?! GIVE THAT BACK!! [reaches for it]
Alphonse: Well then, transmute something, you don't have to use my HEAD!!

Edward: You saying you don't believe me?
Heiderich: Oh, come on Ed! A place where alchemy kept evolving and was more important than the steam engine? Newton's Law eclipsed alchemy, ushering in the modern age. That's a historical fact.
Edward: Yeah, in THIS world, you mean. I'm telling you- WHOAAAAA! [loses control of car, crashing into a tree]

Edward: All right! You asked for it! [claps his hands together, as if to perform alchemy] Sorry, just a little habit of mine!

Edward: Well how 'bout this? Confess your love to her(Gracia) instead of bothering us! Save you some time!
Hughes: Ah!
Edward: Trust me! She'll be good for ya!
Hughes: Have you ever heard of respecting your elders Ed?!

Envy: I've been waiting for you, Edward Elric!
[The serpent form of Envy comes out of the shadows and begins to attack Edward]
Edward: Is that you, Envy?!
Envy: Take me to Hohenheim! TO OUR FATHER!

Heiderich: We're not a part of your dream like you thought we were. I care, and I make mistakes. I may not be in this world for much longer, but I'll always be here. Just don't forget me.

Alphonse: But you've changed! You're taller now.
Edward: Al... [knocks Al's helmet off] What, you thought I'd still be a runt when I'm eighteen years old!?

Alphonse: You haven't changed brother. You're still causing trouble.
Edward: Save the lecture, let's get out of here.

Edward: But I don't get it. How are you in that armor again, Al?
Alphonse: Again? Oh, right... you attached my soul to a suit of armor before. Sorry, brother. I don't remember that.

Heiderich: The truth is...I'm running out of time. You say this world isn't yours but it is mine and I want to leave proof that I lived in it! It's a bit late for you to start caring now!

Edward: This is our home, now. This is where we belong.

FullMetal Alchemist 2: Curse of the Crimson Elixir (PS2)

Shopkeeper: Now I see why they call you "Fullmetal"! It's because of that armor!
Alphonse: Um... I'm not the Fullmetal Alchemist. He is.
Shopkeeper: What, that little shrimp?

Edward: Uhm... There's something I need to ask you, Colonel. It's this ring...
Roy: I'm sorry, but I cannot accept this from another man.
Edward: It's not for you, damn it!
Hughes: Oh, so you're giving it to a girl? Blossoming early, eh shrimp?
Edward: NO! that's not it! What I meant is, do you know anything about this ring?
Mustang: It looks like an old ring to me, is there something special?
Edward: Well, I thought you might know something, but never mind...
Hughes: Somethings fishy here, and it ain't cod.
[After a few seconds]
Hughes: Wait! You're not planning on wooing my daughter, are you?!!
Edward: Excuse me?
Hughes: ...Roy, let's grill this shrimp up. I'll get the skewers...
Roy: ...And I'll provide the flames.
Alphonse: How could you, Brother, wooing a girl in the age of two!
Edward: SHUT UP!!!

Edward: [to Roy] Well, if your security was as tight as your ass, we wouldn't be in this situation!

Edward: [walking in the desert] It's hotter than two chimeras mating in a boiler room...

Edward: [after Al bumps into him] What's the matter Al? Did you forget how to walk in a straight line- Stop bumping into me!
Alphonse: S-sorry... th-these spooky places give me the creeps.
Edward: [laughs] I can't believe you got the heebie-jeebies, Al! You're a big suit of armor! Look at the Lieutenant; walking all bravely up there, leadin' the way- and she's just a girl!
[Hawkeye turns suddenly around to face Ed; gun pointed at his head]
Edward: Ahh-Wha!! Wh-wh-wh-whoa! Put that down, Lieutenant! I didn't mean to insult you in any way, I swear! I just meant 'cause you're-
[Hawkeye fires three times; just above Ed's head. Al drops to the ground, covering his helmet with his arms in fear.]

Edward: Geez, don't you guys know how to come onto a scene- without making a scene? You're so attention starved!
Roy: Right... You knew I'd have to show my face sometime. So, how have things been going, FullMetal? Look's like this was a close call- guess that means you owe me one.
Edward: I don't owe you anything! These golems couldn't get an inch on- WWAAAHHHH!
[Roy snaps his fingers, making a bomb go off right behind Ed, sending him flying forward; killing the monsters, but made the corpses pile up on Ed in the process.]
Roy: [holds up two fingers] Now, you owe me two.
Edward: [as he struggles to get loose] Arghh!! If you're my backup- then back me up!!
Roy: [laughs] That's funny. But, I'm not here for backup, FullMetal.
Edward: Erhh...Huh?
Roy: You fought bravely enough. Now, you can leave it in the hands of the state.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Broken Angel (PS2)

Voice over train speaker: We are the People's Eastern Revolution Front. We have assumed control of this train. I repeat, we are the-
Alphonse: People's Eastern Revolution Front? Sounds like a bunch of names cut and pasted together.

Terrorist: Hey, you in the armor and shorty! [Ed twitches angrily] Who gave you permission to chat!? Just shut up and fork over the valuables!
Terrorist 2: This is perfect! Okay, you [to Armstrong]--take the goods from the muscle man in the armor, and get your butt over here, shorty!
Edward: [cringes as his eyes slit black; veins pulsing all over his face] Who are you calling shorty!?
Terrorist: Heh- You, of course! Who the heck else is there? You shorty!
Edward: [charges ragingly as he claps, transmuting his automail into a hammer] WHO ARE YOU CALLING THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS' TINIEST SHORTY!? [slugs the first terrorist out of the train, sending him flying off into the distance]
Armstrong: Impressive, Edward Elric!

Genz Bresslau: I am Genz Bresslau, the Armor-Piercing Alchemist, and the strongest in the military!
Alphonse: Eep... But I've never heard of you.
Edward: And just WHO says you're the strongest in the military, anyway? Your mom doesn't count, you know.
Genz Bresslau: Wait... You guys can't be...? Yer not Fullmetal Alchemist Edward Elric, are you?
Alphonse: Gosh, Brother, you're a celebrity!
Edward: What's it to you? Do you want me to sign your forehead or something?
