Quotes

  • Oh, yes, there will be blood.
  • I want to play a game.
  • What would you have done five years ago? Would you have followed the manual then? Would you have broken my jaw with a flashlight?
  • Not long to go now until your son is pissing blood.
  • [Whilst Eric Matthews has forced a pistol into his mouth] Game--Game over. I'll take you to the house.
  • [Directing Eric to the house] It's the last house on the left.

Tapes

  • Hello, Michael. I want to play a game. So far, in what loosely could be called your "life", you have made a living watching others. Society would call you an informant. A rat. A snitch. I call you unworthy of the body you possess. Of the life you've been given. Now we will see if you are willing to look inward, rather than outward, to give up the one thing you rely on in order to go on living. The device around your neck is a death mask. The mask is on a string timer. If you do not locate the key in time, the mask will close. Think of it like a Venus Flytrap. What you're looking at right now is your own body, not more than two hours ago. Don't worry. You're sound asleep, and can't feel a thing. Taking into account that you are at a great disadvantage here, I am going to give you a hint as to where I have hidden the key. So listen carefully. The hint is this: [TV screen shows an x-ray.] It's right in front of your eyes. How much blood would you shed to stay alive, Michael? Live or die, make your choice.
  • Greetings...and welcome. I trust that you are all wondering where you are. I can assure you that while your location is not important, what these walls offer you is important: salvation, if you earn it. 3 hours from now, the door to this house will open. Unfortunately, you only have 2 hours to live. Right now, you are breathing in a deadly nerve agent. You've been breathing it since you arrived here. Those of you familiar with the Tokyo subway attacks will know its devastating effects on the human body. The only way to overcome it and walk out that door is to find an antidote. Several are hidden around this house. One is inside the safe in front of you. You all possess the combination to the safe. Think hard. The numbers are in the back of your mind. The clue to their order can be found over the rainbow. Once you realize what you all have in common, you will gain a better understanding of why you're here. X marks the spot for that clue, so look carefully. Let the game begin.
  • Hello Obi, I want to play a game. For years you have burned those around you with your lies, cons, and deceits. Now you will have a chance to redeem yourself, for the games you've played with others, by playing one of mine. Inside the device in front of you are two antidotes for the poison coursing through your veins. One is my gift to you for helping me kidnap the others. The second is yours to donate. However, one will come with a price. Remember Obi: Once you are in Hell, only the devil can help you out.
  • Hello, Xavier, I want to play a game. The game I want to play is very similar to the game you've been playing as a drug dealer. The game of offering hope to the desperate, for a price. I think we can agree that your situation is desperate. So, I offer you hope. The price you pay is that you must crawl into the same pit of squalor you force your customers into. By entering this room, you have started a timer. When the timer expires, the door in front of you will be locked forever. Only in finding the key before the timer runs out can you unlock it and retrieve the antidote inside. I will give you just one hint where to that key is: It will be like finding a needle in a hay stack. Let the game begin.

Amanda

  • [Eric finds a tape recorder and plays it. This is recorded.] Hello, Eric. You probably don't even remember me, but you changed my life once. You sent me to prison. I was guilty of a lot of things, but not the drug charge you framed me for. You wouldn't know the things you lose when you're locked away. The second time somebody changed my life I was guilty, but my life was saved that day. I found myself a father. A leader. A teacher. What is the cure for cancer, Eric? The cure for death itself. The answer is immortallity. By creating a legacy, by living a life worth remembering, you become immortal. So now we find the tables are turned. It is I who will carry on John's work after he dies, and you are my first test subject. Now you are locked away, helpless and alone.
  • He wants us to survive this. You have to play by the fucking rules!
  • Game over.

Eric Matthews

  • [To Daniel] Your mother gets to keep custody, I get to take you into custody.
  • Well then go! (to Daniel)
  • I don't want to talk to him.
  • The clock is ticking, John.
  • It's a little hard to follow the manual when you've got my son, John.
  • Putting a gun to someone's head and forcing them to pull the trigger is still murder.
  • First, you said you wanted to talk. Then you said you wanted to play a game. You're talking, but it means NOTHING!
  • [Attacking Jigsaw] You MOTHERFUCKER!! WHERE IS HE?!
  • [Amanda locks him in the bathroom from the first film] I'LL FUCKING KILL YOU! YOU FUCKING BITCH! YOU FUCKING BITCH! I'LL FUCKING KILL YOU! No! NO!!!! [Screams fade away]

Jonas

  • We don't even know what's in those syringes. You willin' to stick yourself in the arm to find out.
  • Whatever we've got to do, we've got three minutes to get it done.
  • You and me, we can keep going at each other like we're back in the yard, or we can come together and figure out who's doing this to us.
  • You remind me of me. No matter what kind of fucked-up situation you're in, you always got to find yourself an enemy. You know what? I got enemies, man. Outside these fucking walls, bro. And they're looking for me. And if they don't find me, they're going after the ones closest to me. My family. You understand?

Xavier

  • Look whos talking. The only door you know how to open...is between your legs!
  • It's just about me and that's the way I like it.

Dialogue

Eric Matthews: [Stands next to Jigsaw] Hey. This close enough? Get his ass out of here. [Begins to leave]
John: Actually, I will need to remain here while you deal with your problem, Detective Matthews.
Eric Matthews: What problem?
John: The problem in that room.

Eric Matthews: [After seeing Daniel on one of Jigsaw's monitors] What the fuck is that? Hey. Hey! [Rigg stands in front of him] What the fuck is that?
John: It's your son Daniel. You remember him, don't you?
Eric Matthews: I know who he is, you piece of shit. What's he doing on that fucking monitor?
John: Well, I haven't looked at the monitors for some time, so it would be hard for me to say, but I would imagine he's cowering in a corner with a look on his face--
Eric Matthews: You motherfucker! [Rigg restrains him] You motherfucker! Where is he?! WHERE IS HE?!
John: Where is he? That's a problem you're gonna have to solve before it's too late. He has about two hours before the gas creeping into his nervous system begins to break down his body tissue and he begins to bleed from every orifice he has. Oh, yes. There will be blood.
Eric Matthews: Tell me where he is.
John He's in a safe place.
[Eric walks back to the monitor room]

Kerry: Eric.
Eric Matthews: I need a phone.
Kerry: Eric, just listen to me for a second.
Eric Matthews: Just give me a phone!
Kerry: [Hands him her cell phone] Look, everything about this fits his profile.
Eric Matthews: I need to be sure.
John's voice: [Over phone] You've reached Daniel's phone. He's not in right now, but if you'd leave...
[Eric hangs up]
Kerry: I'm sorry.
Rigg: [Looking at a clock that is counting down from 01:47:53] We have something counting down over here.

Gus: How do you just wake up in a room and have no idea where you are?
Xavier: I'm guessing you've never been drunk before.

Eric Matthews: What do you want with me?
John: A little of your time, Detective.
Eric Matthews: I don't have any time.
John: You asked me what I wanted and I told you. Believe me when I tell you your son is in a lot of trouble.
Eric Matthews: And if I give you a little bit of my time? What then?
John: I only want to talk to you. Everyone else must leave. Those are my conditions.
Eric Matthews: No. It's a crime scene. Nobody leaves.
John: They don't have to leave the building. They just have to leave this area long enough for me to talk to you. If you agree to that, then you will see your son again.
Eric Matthews: If I don't see my son, I swear to god I'll rip your fucking head off.
John: I don't intend to mock you, Officer, but I'm a cancer patient. How could you possibly put me in any more pain than I'm already in?



Eric Matthews: Okay. Let's talk.
John: Sit down. [Eric grabs a chair and sits in it] I want to play a game. The rules are simple. All you have to do is sit here and talk to me, listen to me. [Eric puts a walkie-talkie on the floor] If you do that long enough, then you will find your son in a safe and secure state. We haven't been properly introduced. My name's John.
Eric Matthews: I thought you like to be called Jigsaw.
John: No. It was the police and the press who coined the nickname Jigsaw. I never encouraged or claimed that. The jigsaw piece that I cut from my subjects was only ever meant to be a symbol that that subject was missing something. A vital piece of the human puzzle. The survival instinct.
Eric Matthews: This is all really, really interesting, John. But right now I'd really like for you to talk to me.
John: I am talking to you. You're not listening. Don't forget the rules.
Eric Matthews: I am listening to you, but all I'm getting is the same sick fucking bullshit that comes about two seconds into every interview I've ever done with one of you fucking people.
John: Well, that's an interesting approach to police work, isn't it? Aren't you supposed to be convincing me that I'm your friend, lulling me into a false sense of security so that I'll confide in you?
Eric Matthews: It's a little hard to follow the manual when you've got my son, John.
John: The manual? What do you really want to do to me right now, huh? What would you have done five years ago? Would you have followed the manual then? Would you have broken my jaw with a flashlight?
Eric Matthews: You seem to know a whole lot about me.
John: I know you were once considered a fearless police officer. Do you feel a whole lot safer now that you only sit behind a desk?
Eric Matthews: I feel a whole lot of things right now.
John: But you feel alive. That's what you feel, and that's the point. [Pauses] Would you... kindly get me a glass of water? [Holds up a paper cup] I would very much appreciate that.
[Eric reluctantly takes the cup and leaves]

[Xavier tries to break open a door with a bat with steel nails, but steel bars behind the doors block their escape]
Xavier: Fuck!
Addison: Well, we've established that the macho-bullshit approach isn't opening the door. Any other suggestions?
Xavier: Look who's talking. The only door you know how to open... is between your legs!

[Xavier rips an envelope off of a manequin that reads OBI]
Jonas: Obi?
Xavier: What the fuck is a "Obi?"
Obi: Ah-bee. It's my name.

[Obi's traitorism has been revealed]
Xavier: [After Obi refuses to enter the furnace] Then you're a dead man.
Obi: So are you.
[Xavier tries to attack him]
Addison: He's not gonna... [Restrains him] Okay, we got two antidotes at the back of that oven.
Xavier: We're wasting time.
Laura: Wasting time?! Are you kidding me?! He kidnapped me in the middle of the night!
Jonas: We don't even know what's in those syringes. You willing to stick yourself in the arm to find out?
Daniel: Okay, wait. So who gets them? I mean, there's two. So which two people get the antidote?
Xavier: We'll work that out later! [To Obi] Right now, you're going in there... [Holds the knife to Obi's throat] Or I'll kill you where you stand.
[Obi slits the knife across his throat, much to the Xavier's shock]
Obi: If you're gonna threaten me with a knife, you might as well cut me a little. I guess I'm going in there. I guess I'm going in there to get those needles. But I get one.

John: You see, Detective. Darwin's theory of evolution and survival of the fittest, based on his little trip to the Galápagos, no longer applies on this planet. We have a human race that doesn't have the edge or the will to survive.
Eric Matthews: What the fuck do you want?!
John: It's hard to remain calm, isn't it? When your son is walking around on those monitors.
Eric Matthews: I can't give you what you want if you don't tell me what the fuck it is.
John: I told you what it is. Just remember the rules.
Eric Matthews: No, you said you wanted to talk. Then you said you wanted to play a game. You're talking, but it means NOTHING!!
John: What do you think the cure for cancer is, Eric?
Eric Matthews: What?
John: The cure for cancer? What is it?
Eric Matthews: I don't know what it is, but I know it's not killing and torturing people for your own sick fucking pleasure.
John: I've never murdered anyone in my life. The decisions are up to them.
Eric Matthews: Yeah, well, putting a gun to someone's head and forcing them to pull the trigger is still murder.
John: Since when has force been a problem for you? Why are you so desperate to get your son back?
Eric Matthews: 'Cause he's my son...
John: What's the last thing you said to him before you left him?
[Flashback]
Eric Matthews: Well, then go!
[Current Time]
John: Seems to me that the knowledge of your son's impending death is causing you to act. Forgive all his sins, to wipe the slate clean. Why is that we're only willing to do that, when a life is at stake?
Eric Matthews: I've always loved my son. That's never changed.
John: No... no... It's changed now. You see, the knowledge of death... changes everything. If I were to tell you the exact date and time of your death... it would shatter your world completely. I know. Can you imagine what it feels like to have someone sit you down and tell you that you're dying? The gravity of that? Then the clock's ticking for you. In a split second, your world is cracked open. You look at things differently, smell things differently. You savor everything, be it a glass of water or a walk in the park.
Eric Matthews: The clock is ticking, John.
John: But most people have the luxury of not knowing when that clock's going to go off. And the irony of it is that that keeps them from really living their life. It keeps them sleepwalking. It keeps them drinking that glass of water, but never really tasting it.
Eric Matthews: You can still fix this, John.
John: Yeah, but can we fix you?
Eric Matthews: Me?
John: I'm not fixable. I've got cancer.
Eric Matthews: You're using cancer as an excuse for what you do?
John: No. The cancer isn't what started me in my work. It was the moment I decided to end my life... that started me in my work. I had literally driven myself to suicide, and I had failed. My body had not been strong enough to repel cancer cells, yet I had lived through a plunge off a cliff. But, to my amazement, I was alive. And I was determined to spend the rest of my days testing the fabric of human nature. Do you understand, Eric?
Eric Matthews: You got a chance to do something. Do it right now, John. Just tell me where my son is. I'll help you.
John: I don't need your help, and I can tell you still don't understand. Those who don't appreciate life do not deserve life.
Eric Matthews: My son appreciates his life.
John: But do you appreciate yours? Do you appreciate your son's?
Eric Matthews: [Hits the table] Oh, this is shit! [Stands and walks away]
John: Don't forget the rules if you want to find your son.
[Eric ignores him and leaves]

John: How will you get your conviction without all this evidence, Eric?
Eric Matthews: I don't need this shit to convict you.
John: So go ahead. Destroy it.
Eric Matthews: I will.
John: Destroy it all. Just know it will not save your son if you do.
Eric Matthews: You kill my son, I kill you.
John: Go ahead. Why wait? We both know the sort of person you are, sir.
Eric Matthews: [To two SWAT officers] Get out of here.
John: The sort of person who guns down an unarmed suspect. In fact, the sort of person who plants evidence in order to obtain a conviction. The sort of person whose wife leaves him and his son hates him.
Eric Matthews: SHUT THE FUCK UP!!

[Xavier has deciphered the meaning of "The numbers are in the back of [their] mind[s]" and "over the rainbow."]
Jonas: What are you doing?
Xavier: I haven't decided yet.
Jonas: You know, the others, they're scared of you.
Xavier: Good.
Jonas: You and me. We can keep going at each other like we're back in the yard, or we can come together and figure out who's doing this to us.
Xavier: You and the others can do what you want. I already found what I'm looking for.
Jonas: You remind me of me. No matter what kind of fucked-up situation you're in, you always got to find yourself an enemy. You know what? I got enemies, man. Outside these fucking walls, bro. And they're looking for me. And if they don't find me, they're going after the ones closest to me. My family. You understand?
Xavier: No. I don't understand. It's just me, and that's the way I like it. Now, turn... around.
Jonas: What?
Xavier: Turn... [Brandishes a knife] ...around

[End of the film]
Tape: [Amanda's Voice] Hello, Eric. You probably don't even remember me, but you changed my life once. You sent me to prison. I was guily of a lot of things, but not the drug charge you framed me for. You wouldn't know the things you lose when you're locked away. The second time somebody changed my life, I was guilty.
[Flashback]
Tape: [Jaw Trap scene] Hello, Amanda.
[Current Time]
Tape: But my life was saved that day.
[Flashbacks]
Daniel Matthews: You said you survived this, right?
Amanda: Yeah.
[Current Time]
Tape: I found myself a father, a leader. A teacher.
[Flashback]
John: You must meet death... in order to be reborn.
Amanda: He helped me.
[Current Time]
Tape: What is the cure for cancer, Eric?
[Flashback]
John: Those who don't appreciate life do not deserve life.
[Current Time]
Tape: The cure for death itself? The answer... is immortality.
Eric Matthews: [Realizes he is chained to a pipe] Daniel!!
Tape: By creating a legacy, by living a life worth remembering, you become immortal. So now you find the tables are turned.
[Flashback]
Kerry: He asked for you.
Eric Matthews: What the fuck do you want?!
John: I told you.
Amanda: He wants us to survive this.
John: I want to play a game.
Amanda: You have to play by the fucking rules!
John: The rules are simple. All you have to do is sit here and talk to me.
Eric Matthews: What?
John: If you can do that long enough, you will find your son.
[Kerry finds Daniel in a safe]
Eric Matthews: What the fuck is that?
John: It's your son, Daniel. You remember him, don't you?
Daniel Matthews: My dad's a... he's a real hardass.
Tape: [Previous] I call you unworthy of the life that you've been given.
John: The knowledge of your son's impending death is causing to forgive all his sins. Why is that we're only willing to do that when a life is at stake?
Eric Matthews: DANIEL!! [To Jigsaw] I'm done listening to you.
John: Don't forget the rules.
Eric Matthews: Shut the FUCK UP!!
Kerry: He's playing a game.
Eric Matthews: I don't want to talk to him. [To Jigsaw] You're not saying shit!
John: We both know the sort of person you are. [After being hit] Not long to go now until your son is pissing-- [Eric hits him] I'll take you to the house.
Eric Matthews: [In the bathroom, reaching into the bathtub] Daniel? [A figure in a pig mask injects him with something]
John: There's something I haven't told you, Eric.
[Current Time]
Tape: [Amanda removes the pig mask] It is I who will carry on John's work when he dies...
Eric Matthews: Daniel!
[Flashback]
John: So go ahead. Destroy it.
[Current Time]
Eric Matthews: [Reaching for his gun] DANIEL!
Tape: ...and you are my first test subject. Now you are locked away. Helpless... [Amanda appears in the doorway] and alone.
Eric Matthews: You fucking bitch.
Amanda: Game over. [Shuts the door]
Eric Matthews: I'LL FUCKING KILL YOU! YOU FUCKING BITCH!!! YOU FUCKING BITCH!!! I'LL FUCKING KILL YOU!! NO! NO!!


Addison:Well we've established that the macho bullshit approach isn't opening the door. Any other suggestions?
Xavier:Look who's talking, the only door you know how to open is between your legs!
Addison: [lunges toward Xavier]] WHY DON'T YOU SHUT THE HELL UP ALRIGHT!
Xavier:WHY DON'T YOU SHUT THE HELL UP!
Addison: [she lunges toward him and they start fighting]I'M SICK OF YOUR BULLSHIT! YOU'D BEST BEND OVER BEFORE I LAND ONE ON THE BACK OF YOUR CHEEK, ASSWHOLE![Jonas steps in and grabs Addison]
Addison:GET THE FUCK OFF ME!
