Ghost In The Shell Tagline

Dr. Ouelet: We cling to memories as if they define us, but… they really don’t. What we do is what defines us.

Aramaki: Don’t send a rabbit to kill a fox.

Major: Everyone around me seems to fit. They seem connected to something I am… not. It’s like I have no past.

Major: My name is Major Mira Killian, and I give my consent.

Batou: I can see you out there, you know.

Major: How many fingers am I holding up?

Batou: Funny.

Aramaki: You are more than just a weapon. You have a soul… a ghost. When we see our uniqueness as a virtue, only then will we find peace.

Major: For someone who doesn’t like people, how come you care about dogs so much?

Batou: Don’t know. I just like strays and they like me.

Major: They like you because you feed them.

Batou: You got no heart.

Major: My mind is human. My body is manufactured. I’m the first of my kind, but… I won’t be the last. We cling to memories as if they define us. But what we do defines us. My ghost survived to remind the next of us… that humanity is our virtue. I know who I am… and what I’m here to do.

Aramaki: Major. Engage targets… You’re authorized.

Major: Say something nice.

Batou: What’s your name? Aramaki told me you had a name from before.

Major: Motoko.

Dr. Ouelet: Open and close, please. You have damaged internal systems.

Major: Maybe next time you can design me better.

Dr. Ouelet: How are you?

Major: I’m fine, I can’t feel anything.

Dr. Ouelet: No, you. In there.

Major: I’ve been having glitches. But they’ll pass.

Dr. Ouelet: You’ve been talking your medication?

Major: Yeah. But these ones are still cycling. I had two this morning.

Dr. Ouelet: Sounds or image?

Major: Both.

Dr. Ouelet: [scans] I see it. Have you made any unencrypted downloads?

Major: No, just delete them for me.

Dr. Ouelet: Consent.

Major: My name is Major Mira Killian and I give my consent to delete this data.

Dr. Ouelet: It’s done. It’s no big deal.

Major: What are they?

Dr. Ouelet: Sensory echoes from your mind. Shadows. Can’t be sure.

Major: How do you know what’s a glitch and what’s me?

Dr. Ouelet: The glitches have a different texture… to the rest of your code. I can see everything. All of your thoughts, your… decisions.

Major: I guess privacy is just for humans.

Dr. Ouelet: You are human. People see you as human.

Major: Everyone around me seems to fit. They seem connected to something, something I’m… not. It’s like I have no past.

Dr. Ouelet: Of course you have a past. And with time you’ll feel more and more connected to it… and to them.

Dr. Ouelet: Open and close, please.

ghost in the shell batou quotes

Dr. Ouelet: We cling to memories as if they define us, but… they really don’t. What we do is what defines us.

Batou: [Batou just got new eyes] Say something nice.

Major: You chose those?

Batou: They’re tactical.

Major: Did they send you to bring me in?

Batou: I’m just here to fish. Did you see any?

Major: You’re a company man. You follow orders, so if they ordered you to kill me…

Batou: Stop saying shit like that. You’re gonna piss me off.

Dr. Ouelet: Do any of the glitches mean something to you?

Major: No. They don’t.

Dr. Ouelet: You’ve been inside the same shell as he has. That could have… very serious consequences. You were not authorized to Deep Dive the geisha.

Major: You’re disappointed.

Dr. Ouelet: No, I’m worried. You’re not invulnerable. I can repair your body, but I can’t protect your mind.

Major: Why not? You can see all my thoughts, so… you should be able to secure them.

Dr. Ouelet: Try and understand your importance, Mira. You’re what everyone will become one day.

Major: You don’t know how alone that makes me feel.

Batou: …what’s the difference, fantasy, reality, dreams, memories. It’s all the same, just noise.

Major: My name is Major Mira Killian and I do not consent to the deletion of this data. I do not consent… I do not consent.

Dr. Ouelet: We never needed your consent. Yours or anyone’s.

Major: You’re killing me… aren’t you?

Opening Title Card: In the future, the line between human and machine is disappearing. Advancements in the technology allow humans to enhance themselves with cybernetic parts.

Opening Title Card: Hanka robotics, funded by the government, is developing a military operative that will blur the line even further. By transplanting a human brain into a fully synthetic body, they will combine the strongest attributes of human and robot.

Dr. Osmund: I’m human. I’m flawed. But I embrace change… and enhancement. Now there’s nothing I can’t do. Nothing. Nothing I can’t know. Nothing I can’t be. I want you to listen to something.

Dr. Osmund: My four-year-old daughter. The time it took her to sing that lullaby, she learned to speak fluent French.

Dr. Ouelet: Hello Mira. I’m Dr. Ouelet. Do you remember anything about the attack?

Major: What happened? I was… I was drowning. There’s water.

Dr. Ouelet: That’s right. You were on a boat. A refugee boat. It was sunk by terrorists.

Major: Why can’t I feel my body?

Dr. Ouelet: Mira, your body was damaged. We couldn’t save it. Only your brain survived. We made you a new body. A synthetic shell. But your mind, your soul, your “ghost,” it’s still in there.

Kuze: Collaborate with Hanka Robotics and be destroyed.

Major: This is Major. I’m on site. Awaiting instructions.

Aramaki: [in Japanese] Saito, have you found Major? Is she safe?

Saito: [in Japanese] She will be.

Kuze: I have been born more than once, so I have more than one name.

Cutter: [to Dr. Ouelet] You download all the data on the terrorist, and then I order you to terminate.

Dr. Ouelet: Now your eyes are gonna open… There… You’re safe.

Dr. Ouelet: It’s okay, just breathe. Just breathe.

Cutter: Will it work?

Dr. Ouelet: Absolutely. She’s a miracle. A machine can’t lead, it can only follow orders. A machine can’t imagine or care or intuit. But as a human mind in a cybernetic frame, Mira can do all those things, and more.

Cutter: The first of her kind. She will join Section 9 as soon as she is operational.

Dr. Ouelet: Please, don’t do that. You’re reducing a complex human to a machine.

Cutter: I don’t think of her as a machine. She’s a weapon. And the future of my company.

Major: The Harbor. My parents. The way they died. Did that happen?

Dr. Ouelet: No. We gave you false memories. Cutter wanted to motivate you to fight terrorists. I didn’t approve. It was cruel, but my work, it was important, and… you were born. You were so beautiful.

Major: Nothing I have is real.

Major: Tell me who you are.

Kuze: I am that which you seek to destroy. In this life, my name is Kuze.

Major: What are you doing to me?

Kuze: I have connected you to a network of my own creation. When I am finished in this world, my ghost can survive there and regenerate.

Major: What do you want from me?

Kuze: I became fascinated with you, reading your code while you were inside that geisha. Like nothing I had felt before and yet so… familiar. We are the same.

Major: We are not the same. You kill innocent people.

Kuze: “Innocent”, is that what you call them? I am as they made me.

Major: Who made you?

Kuze: What have they told you? That you were the first? The first cerebral salvage? You were born of lessons took from my failure.

Major: What are you talking about?

Kuze: I was conscious while they dismembered my body and discarded me like garbage. I was lying on a table, listening to doctors talk about how my mind had not meshed with the shell that they had built, how Project 2571 had failed, and they had to move on to you.

Kuze: What a beauty you are. They have improved us so much since they made me. They thought we would be a part of their evolution, but they have created us to evolve alone… beyond them.

Major: “Evolution”, that’s what you call killing everyone who made you?

Kuze: You’re not listening to me.

Major: You’re a murderer.

Kuze: They tried to kill me first. It is self-defense; defense of self! More will die until they tell me what they took!

Batou: I got night vision, mile-zoom, and X-ray. I guess I see like you now.

Major: Don’t worry, you’ll get used to it.

Ghost In The Shell Batou Quotes

I’m a big fan of ghost in the shell, I’ve never seen this movie before but after watching this trailer it looks good. To anyone who has seen this movie how good was it?

Batou: Thanks for saving my ass.

Major: Glad to see you’re okay.

Batou: Major? Could you feed the dogs for me? I don’t want to scare them.

Major: [agrees] Anytime.

Cutter: Major is our most sophisticated weapon only if she’s intact. And Dr. Ouelet informed me that you let her dive a corrupted geisha. You realize the supreme importance that Hanka represents to this government. Major is the future of my company. If you compromise her systems again, I will burn this section.

Aramaki: [in Japanese] Be careful who you threaten. I answer to the Prime Minister, not Hanka.

Kuze: Tell me what they took from me.

Dr. Dahlin: I’m sorry. They never told us.

Togusa: [to Ishikawa] Something’s different. What’d you get?

Ladriya: Why do you always think he’s out there enhancing?

Togusa: Because he is.

Ishikawa: [lifts shirt to reveal a scar] Cyber-mech liver. Been saving up for a while. Now it’s last call every night.

Togusa: You got enhanced so you can drink more?

Ladriya: Embrace the enhancements, Togusa. We wouldn’t be here without it.

Togusa: I’m all human and happy, thanks.

Skinny Man: I’m looking at her and I’m thinking, “You want me to pay for violin, too?” Don’t get me wrong… I love that kid to pieces. I do. She’s amazing. But when she practices that thing, it is painful, right? Why not piano? I mean, it’s the same price, you know? And it doesn’t sound so bad. At least, if you can’t play that proper, it sounds…

Dr. Ouelet: Oxygen levels are dropping… Brain function normal… Cerebral salvage ready to proceed… Robotic skeleton prepared and waiting for brain insertion… Initiate Project 2571…

Ladriya: [as Skinny Man is being interrogated] I don’t understand, how can he not know?

Togusa: The hack must have created a vacuum. Kuze wiped his memory and somehow installed a new reality.

Batou: At least, he got to believe he had a kid. What’s the difference, huh? Fantasy, reality. Dreams, memories… It’s all the same, just noise.

Cutter: [assassinating Ouelet for her betrayal] That’s The Problem With The Human Heart

Cutter: [on discovering section 9 is now aware of what’s occured] The Virus Has Spread

Major: [as she gets interrogated with an electric prod] The truth is… I wasn’t built to dance.

ghost in the shell tagline

Cutter: [spoilers]

Cutter: I Thought That It Might Be You

Aramaki: [in Japanese] It Is Unwise To Resist

Cutter: [staggering to his feet, his gun kicked out of reach]

Cutter: please

Aramaki: [in Japanese]

Aramaki: Major? I’m With Cutter Is There Anything You’d Like To Say To Him?

Major: [icily] Tell Him This Is Justice… It’s What I Was Built For!

Aramaki: [in Japanese]

Aramaki: So… Do I Have Your Consent?

Major: [coldly] My Name Is Major… And I Give My Consent!

Batou: [after the door man sticks his gun to Batou’s abdomen] I thought you said no trouble?

Major: It feels like… there’s always this thick fog over my memory and I can’t see through it.

Batou: You’re lucky. Every single day, I get screwed by my memories. It’s better to be pure. Like you.

Major: We used to have a dog.

Batou: Seriously? I had you down as a cat person.

Kuze: Don’t take the medication they give you. They use it to suppress your memories. Your shell belongs to them, but not your ghost. Your ghost is yours. Remember that, and maybe you can remember it all.

Major: [Major has just discovered her past life; to Kuze] I remember what they did to us, Cutter and his men. This is where they took us from. We used to sleep right here. We were like a family, all of us runaways. We had nothing except each other. They took that from us. Your name was Hideo.

Kuze: Motoko… that was your name. Motoko. Come with me into my network. We will evolve beyond them… and together, we can avenge what they have done to us. Come with me.
