Eli: People had more than they needed. We had no idea what was precious and what wasn't. We threw away things people kill each other for now.
Solara: (after Solara takes Eli to where they get their water from, he locks her in) You are such a liar! Eli: I'm not a liar Solara: You said I could come with you if I took you to the water Eli: I didn't say that, you said that, the road's no place for someone like you, trust me, you're safter there than you think Solara: Hey Eli: Yeah Solara: Fuck you!
Eli: The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures: he leads me beside the still waters.He restores my soul he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou art with me Solara: That's beautiful, did you write that? Eli: Yes, I did. (chuckles) Eli: No, no. No. No, that was around a long time before you and I got here, that's for sure.
Eli: (last lines) Eli: Dear Lord, Thank you for giving me the strength and the conviction to complete the task you entrusted to me. Thank you for guiding me straight and true through the many obstacles in my path. And for keeping me resolute when all around seemed lost. Thank you for your protection and your many signs along the way. Thank you for any good that I may have done, I'm so sorry about the bad. Thank you for the friend I made. Please watch over her as you watched over me. Thank you for finally allowing me to rest. I'm so very tired, but I go now to my rest at peace. Knowing that I have done right with my time on this earth. I fought the good fight, I finished the race, I kept the faith.
Eli: You know what's the good thing about no soap, you can smell a hijacker from a mile away Hijack Leader: The hijackers come out of hiding "I am impressed, this man can smell us from thirty feet away, now what's that say about our hygiene! To Eli " What's in the bag? Eli: What bag? Hijack Leader: You got a gun, he's got a gun, tip it on the ground Eli: I can't do that Hijack Leader: This guy's a fucking genius, drop the fucking bag on the ground!Are you listening to me? "He taps Eli on the side of the shoulder" Eli: Yeah, are you listening to me, touch me with that hand again and you're not getting it back Hijack Leader: He laughs and goes to touch Eli again, Eli cuts off his hand "He cut off my hand, what are you standing around for kiss him! Hijacker: Why'd he say? Eli: He's in shock, I think he meant kill him.
Solara: I didn't think you'd ever give up the book, I thought it was too important to you
Eli: It was, I was carrying and reading it everyday, got so caught up in protecting it, I forgot to live by what I'd learnt from it
Solara: And what's that?
Eli: To do more for others than you do for yourself
Lombardi: There's a whole series of beautiful Mozart and Wagner records, in still very pristine condition. But, never a Bible. Until now. May I ask what condition it's in?
Eli: It's beat up. But it will do the job.
Carnegie: And who are you?
Carnegie: Oh, I doubt that. The men you killed in my bar, now they were nobody.
Solara: Do you really read the same book everyday?
Eli: Without fail.
Solara: I want to come with you.
Eli: No, you don't.
Solara: I hate it here.
Eli: Then change it.
Eli: Stay on the path. It's not your concern. Stay on the path. It's not your concern.
Engineer: You can wait over there, across the street at the Orpheum.
Eli: No, I'll wait here.

Eli: Uh... I'll wait here.
Solara: You know, you say you've been walking for thirty years, right?
Solara: Have you ever thought that maybe you were lost?
Solara: Well, how do you know that you're walking in the right direction?
Eli: I walk by faith, not by sight.
Solara: (sighs) What does that mean?
Eli: It means that you know something even if you don't know something.
Solara: That doesn't make any sense.
Eli: It doesn't have to make sense. It's faith, it's faith. It's the flower of light in the field of darkness that's giving me the strength to carry on. You understand?
Solara: Is that from your book?
Eli: No, it's, uh, Johnny Cash, Live at Folsom Prison.
Eli: You know what's good about no soap, you can smell a hijacker from a mile away!
Hijack Leader: I am impressed, this man can smell us from thirty feet away, now what's that say about our hygiene!
Lombardi: (to his assistant) Could you get us some writing paper, please.
Eli: A lot of it. A whole lot of it.
