From Hell (2001) Poster


Johnny Depp: Inspector Frederick Abberline



  • Sir William Gull : One day men will look back and say that I gave birth to the twentieth century.

    Abberline : You're not going to see the twentieth century.

  • Abberline : [about Polly's murder]  I'm waiting for the police surgeon's report for more details.

    Sir Charles Warren : [sits at his desk while smoking a cigarette]  I see. Well, one thing's for certain; an Englishman didn't do it.

    [Warren pulls up a newspaper clipping of American Natives] 

    Sir Charles Warren : Maybe one of these Red Indians wandered into Whitechapel and indulged his natural inclinations.

    [Abberline looks doubtfully at the drawing] 

    Abberline : With all due respect, sir, I believe this was done by someone with at least a working knowledge of dissection. An educated man, such as a doctor...

    Sir Charles Warren : [quickly interjects]  An educated man? That's preposterous! No well-bred man would do this!


    Sir Charles Warren : Probably a tradesman or a butcher...

    Abberline : [nods]  A tradesman is a possibility, sir, yes...


    Abberline : But there's a strong indication against it. There was a sprig of grapes under her body.

    Sir Charles Warren : What are you driving at?

    Abberline : No one in Whitechapel, no matter what their trade, could afford grapes. Obviously, they were given to her by the killer. It follows that he must be someone with money.

  • Sir Charles Warren : It's over with, It's done. You have my word.

    Abberline : Fuck your word! I will bring down every one of you fucking cunts!

  • Abberline : This ain't killin' for profit. This is ritual.

  • [Johnny Depp's first lines] 

    [Sergeant Godley slaps Abberline to wake him up] 

    Abberline : Hello, darling.

  • Abberline : Why?

    Sir Charles Warren : Are you questioning my decision?

    Abberline : No, sir, I just simply want to know why.

  • Abberline : I want every veterinarian, butcher, furrier in the district interviewed.

    Constable Withers : Furrier? What he do, sir? Skin her?

    Abberline : He disemboweled her. Removed her stomach, intestines...

  • Abberline : And Withers, for your information... the star of David has six points.

  • Sir Charles Warren : My God. He's out of his mind.

    Abberline : That's very astute of you sir.

  • Abberline : Sergeant? It's night.

    Peter Godley : Your observations are correct. It is indeed night.

    [turns to two constables] 

    Peter Godley : And gentlemen, unless you wish to be free of the confines of your duties, this never happened.

  • Victoria Abberline : [as they make love]  I have wonderful news.

    Abberline : Tell me.

    Victoria Abberline : Surely you, of all people, can guess.

    Abberline : I don't want to guess with you.

    Victoria Abberline : Dr.Marbury says...

    Abberline : Dr.Marbury says?

    Victoria Abberline : Dr.Marbury says I'm going to have your child.

    [Abberline smiles and kisses Victoria]
