Quotes 

  • Dae-su Oh : Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and you weep alone.

  • Dae-su Oh : Even though I'm no more than a monster - don't I, too, have the right to live?

  • Dae-su Oh : If they had told me it was going to be fifteen years, would it have been easier to endure?

  • Dae-su Oh : Can 10 years' worth of imaginary training... be put to use?

    Dae-su Oh : [Dae-su beats up his assailants]  Apparently, it can.

  • Dae-su Oh : [on receiving three chopsticks with his prison rations]  All I could think about in that moment was the guy in the next room was eating with only one chopstick.

  • Dae-su Oh : [after getting knocked over and taking a drag of a cigarette]  "Dick-shit"... a new word. Television doesn't teach you swear words.

  • Dae-su Oh : Who the hell are you?

    Woo-jin Lee : Me? I'm a sort of scholar. And my major is you. A scholar studying Dae-su Oh; an expert on Dae-su Oh.

  • Dae-su Oh : Can the imaginary training of fifteen years be put to use?

    Dae-su Oh : [Dae-su tries to sexually assault Mi-do and gets clobbered]  No. It can't.

  • Mi-do : [looking around the inside of Dae-su's "cell"]  You stayed in a place like this for fifteen years?

    Dae-su Oh : Yeah, but after the first eleven it felt like home.

  • Dae-su Oh : Revenge is good for your health, but pain will find you again.

  • Dae-su Oh : [after a huge fight]  As I expected, I can't get along with anyone today either.

  • Dae-su Oh : How's life in a bigger prison, Dae-su?

  • Dae-su Oh : Why'd you lock me up, you

    [tries to think of the word] 

    Dae-su Oh : ... dick-shit?

  • Dae-su Oh : If by any chance Mido should find out the truth, you son of a bitch, I'm going to rip you limb from limb. And your remains will never be found. Why? Because I'm going to swallow every last bit.

  • Dae-su Oh : You need not worry about the future, Imagine nothing.

  • Dae-su Oh : The TV is both a clock and a calendar. It's your school, your home, your church, your friend...

    [Dae-su masturbates to a pop star onscreen] 

    Dae-su Oh : ... and your lover. But... my lover's song is too short.

  • Dae-su Oh : [after a very messy beating]  Anyone here with an AB blood type, raise your hand.

  • Dae-su Oh : [Dae-su is about to use a clawhammer to yank out someone's teeth]  Each one I yank out will make you age for one year. Ready to talk?

  • Mi-do : What should I pray for?

    Dae-su Oh : Dear Lord, next time let me meet a younger man.

  • Dae-su Oh : Erasing my memory and telling me to find the truth was cowardly. I won. So die like you promised.

  • Dae-su Oh : [Dae Su is on his knees. Begging]  Please. Don't tell Mido. What has she done wrong? You know it was all my fault... I have committed an unforgivable sin, against your sister. And I also... Did you wrong. Please leave Mido alone... If by any chance Mido finds out the truth, you son of a bitch, I'll tear you limb from limb. And your remains will never be found. Why? Because I'm going to swallow every last bit.

    [Crawls over to Woo-Jin and starts to grovel to Woo-Jin] 

    Dae-su Oh : Woo-Jin! Please, sir, I made a mistake. Please forget what I said. Sir, Woo-Jin!

    [Raises up on his knees to face Woo-Jin] 

    Dae-su Oh : We're Evergreen Oldboys, remember?

    [singing] 

    Dae-su Oh : With the energy of a green pine tree/The Great Sangnok High...

    [Grabbing hold of Woo-Jin's leg. Begging, and weeping] 

    Dae-su Oh : I'll do whatever you want. I'll do anything, I beg you. Woo-Jin, if you want me to be your dog. I will. From this moment on, I am Woo-Jin's dog. I'm your bitch.

    [Starts barking maniacally like a dog] 

    Dae-su Oh : Look, I'm wagging my tail. I'm a dog, I'll guard your house. I'll be your slave...

    [Starts crying frantically, and falls to Woo-Jin's feet. He begins to lick his shoes... Humiliated... defeated... ] 

  • Mr. Park : We put a hypnosis-inducing drug in your water

    Dae-su Oh : Sodium barbiturate?

    Mr. Park : Ha! TV Man knows it all!

  • Mi-do : Dae Su. In front of me is some kind of box. He's telling me to open it. It's the same violet box...

    Dae-su Oh : No! No Mi-do don't. Don't open it no matter what. Or something terrible will happen.

  • Dae-su Oh : If you stand aimlessly at a phone booth on a rainy day, and meet a man whose face is covered by a violet umbrella, I'd suggest that you get close to the TV.

  • Dae-su Oh : I thought I'd lived a simple life. But I've sinned too much

  • Woo-jin Lee : Mister. Are you alright? What happened to you? Saewoon Apartments, Eung-am building 8. Take care of him.

    Dae-su Oh : Thank You.

    Woo-jin Lee : Not at all. Well, then. Farewell, Oh Dae Su.

    Dae-su Oh : Farewell, Oh Dae Su.

  • Dae-su Oh : Please. Don't tell Mido. What has she done wrong? You know it was all my fault... I have committed an unforgivable sin, against your sister. And I also... Did you wrong. But, please leave Mido alone... If by any chance Mido finds out the truth, you son of a bitch, I'll tear you limb from limb. And your remains will never be found. Why? Because I'm going to swallow every last bit.

  • Dae-su Oh : When the melody turns on, gas comes out. When the gas comes out, I fall asleep. I found out later it's the same Valium gas the Russians used on those Chechen terrorists.

  • Dae-su Oh : [holding up a sign]  I'VE BEEN BUGGED. PLEASE FIND IT.
