Nemo Nobody adult: (to/about Elise) I often have this dream. In prehistoric times, I can hear you screaming. I chase the bear and you're not afraid anymore, but when I wake up, there's no bear... but you're still afraid. I'm not a bear hunter. I'm an executive at a plant that manifactures photocopying machines that just quit his job. I don't dare move, I don't live, whatever I do is a disaster. I would love to set out to chase the bear away and for you to not be afraid anymore.
Elise: (crying) I'm so horrible!
Nemo Nobody adult: No you're not. You're not horrible.
Elise: I can't stand this life anymore!
Nemo Nobody adult: What's the matter? You've got the most incredible kids...
Elise: Don't try to make me feel better, it only makes me feel guiltier! What's wrong with me?
Anna age 15: I want you.
Nemo age 16: I want you too.
Anna age 15: Forever.
Nemo age 16: Forever. There is no life without you.
Nemo's Father: There was a card from your mother in the post. You haven't looked at it.
Nemo age 16: I know, I'll get to it.
Nemo's Father: Aren't you going to see her one day?
Nemo age 16: I haven't seen her for seven years. If she wanted to see me, she knows where to find me.
Young journalist: Everything you say is contradictory. You can't have been in one place and another at the same time. Of all those lives, which one is the right one?
Nemo Nobody aged 118: Each of these lives is the right one! Every path is the right path. Everything could have been anything else and it would have just as much meaning.
Nemo Nobody adult: What was there before the big bang? Well, you see, there was no before because before the big bang, time did not exist. Time is a result of the expansion of the universe itself. But what will happen when the universe has finished expanding?
Elise: What are you doing today?
Nemo Nobody adult: I was thinking about taking the opportunity to wash the car.
Elise: What's the deal with that car?
Nemo Nobody adult: What do you mean?
Elise: Why do you take such good care of that car while you leave me here all alone? What's the problem with the car?
Nemo Nobody adult: (goes outside to set the car on fire, then goes back to Elise) There's no more problem with the car.
Nemo age 16: Sometimes I can see the future.
Anna age 15: Doesn't sound like it'd be much fun to know what's going to happen.
Nemo age 16: How did you know my name?
Elise age 15: We go to the same school. You never notice me, you never notice anyone. Do you have a girlfriend? What, are you queer? Why don't you have a girlfriend?
Nemo age 16: I don't know... I don't want one.
Elise age 15: Do you know how to talk? Well say something.
(waits then starts to leave)
Nemo age 16: Gravity on Mars is 0,38. That's three times less than on Earth. The ground is covered with iron-oxide dust.
Elise age 15: (turns to face Nemo) You're incredible. Raise your hand and say 'I swear'. Promise me that when I die, you'll scatter my ashes on Mars.
Nemo's Mother: You could've stayed with your father if you wanted to!
Nemo Nobody aged 118: It should be written on every schoolroom blackboard: life is a playground or nothing.
Anna age 15: You wanna go for a swim? Come on, it'll be...
Nemo age 16: No, I...
Anna age 15: Come swim with us, they're my friends. Come on.
Nemo age 16: They're idiots. I don't go swimming with idiots.
Anna age 15: Jerk.
Nemo age 16: (narrating) What on earth made me say I don't go swimming with idiots?
Nemo Nobody adult: What's wrong?
Elise: I was dreaming about Stefano. He doesn't give a damn about me. I love him. There can't be any other explaination for being in this state. I don't know what it could be. I'm not happy. I'm going crazy. Every morning when I wake up, I rub my eyes and I see your face and I start crying. I realise that my life is passing me by. How can you stay so calm? How can you be like that? You're not human! I don't know what to do! It's not my fault, right? You're not gonna leave me, are you?
Nemo Nobody adult: No no no, I love you!
Elise: I hurt everybody! I hurt you, the children... this can't go on.
Nemo Nobody adult: Together we can do it.
Elise: Then you're all gonna end up drowning with me.
Nemo Nobody adult: We'll learn to swim. I love you.
Elise: I love you.
Nemo Nobody adult: I love you...
Nemo Nobody adult: (narrating while in his car underwater) I always liked fish. I never thought that one day they would like me too.
Nemo age 9: (narrating) On that day, i would make a lot of silly decisions.
Nemo age 16: One; I will never leave anything to chance again. Two; I will marry the girl on my motorcycle. Three; I'll be rich. Four; we'll have a house. A big house, painted yellow, with a garden. And two children, Paul and Michael. Five; I'll have a convertible. A red convertible! And a swimming pool, I'll learn to swim. Six; I will not stop until I succeed!
