Gothika (2003) Poster


Halle Berry: Miranda Grey



  • Miranda : Did we have an affair?

    Pete : No.

    Miranda : Did you want to?

    Pete : Yes.

    Miranda : Did you think I wanted to?

    Pete : Yes.

    Miranda : Then why didn't we?

    Pete : Because you were married to the boss.

    Miranda : But I'm not now.

    Pete : I'm here - I'm trying to help you. Why don't you trust me?

    Miranda : Because you can't trust somebody when they think you're crazy.

  • Miranda : I'm not deluded, Pete, I'm possessed.

    Pete : I don't believe in ghosts.

    Miranda : Neither do I, but they believe in me.

  • Miranda : All I know is I saw this girl, and she's connected to me. How? I don't know how she's connected to me. But she is.

    Pete : Delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, frequent derailment and incoherence...

    Miranda : Don't rattle off this psychiatric shit to me! I know that like the back of my hand!

    Pete : Good! Good. Saves me the trouble.

  • Miranda : I need you to tell me who did this to you? Tell me his name, Chloe. Chloe, tell me. Tell me anything. Tell me.

    Chloe : I'll tell you one thing: He can have my body, but he will never have my soul. Never. The devil.

  • Chloe : You have no idea how it feels not to be trusted.

    Miranda : You've got to trust me too, Chloe

    Chloe : You can't trust someone who thinks you're crazy.

  • [first lines] 

    Chloe : He came back again last night and tore me like paper. He opened me like a flower of pain, and it felt good. He sank into me and set me on fire, like he always does. Made me burn from the inside out.

    Miranda : How did you know it was the devil?

  • Chloe : It was the only way to help him stop.

    Miranda : Stop what?

    Chloe : Stop fucking me!

  • Dr. Douglas Grey : [handing a Miranda a glass of water]  Throw it on the mirror. This is what she sees now.

    Miranda : A distorted image of herself.

    Dr. Douglas Grey : Who are you in all this?

    Miranda : I'm the mirror.

    Dr. Douglas Grey : You are the mirror.

    Miranda : If I'm the mirror and she's the image... then who are you?

    Dr. Douglas Grey : I can see both of you... so I'm God. Or just an overworked hospital beaurocrat.

    Miranda : "God" is good.

    Dr. Douglas Grey : Always remember, the ability to repress... is actually a vital survival tool. Without it... Chloe might not have survived.

  • Chloe : Are you scared?

    Miranda : ...No.

    Chloe : You should be.

  • Miranda : I am a rational person. I believe in science. I don't believe in the paranormal, and I don't believe in ghosts. But if you are the ghost of Rachel Parsons, then you would let me out of this cell.

  • Miranda : [to the girl on the bridge]  Are you okay? Are you okay? Hey! Oh, my God. Okay. Okay. Okay. I'm a Doctor. I'm a Doctor. I'm gonna take you to the hospital. I'm a Doctor, honey. I'm gonna help you, okay? You're gonna be okay. I'm gonna help you, okay?

  • Pete : Miranda... Doug is dead. You killed him.

    Miranda : [screaming]  No! No! No!

  • Miranda : [picking up a picture of Rachel Parsons]  Who is this? Who is this girl?

    Phil Parsons : That's my daughter, Rachel.

    Miranda : No, no, no. This is the girl that I saw at the bridge. This is the girl.

    Phil Parsons : No, Miranda, no.

    Miranda : How is she? Where is she?

    Phil Parsons : It's impossible.

    Miranda : This is the girl I've been seeing. This girl, right here.

    Phil Parsons : She's dead. Rachel died four years ago.

  • Pete : You're in crisis. Don't you see how this image is tailor-made for your state of mind. A woman in purgatory. I need you to explain this to me though.

    Miranda : Rachel Parsons did not commit suicide.

  • Phil Parsons : Miranda, I... I... I wouldn't look for a real-world explanation. It's a dream, a delusion.

    Miranda : A delusion that we both seem to share.

  • Pete : Miranda, what's the last thing you remember?

    Miranda : I remember Chloe. I was having my Friday night session with Chloe.

    Pete : How did that go?

    Miranda : She was embellishing her rape story. I saw Doug.

    Dr. Douglas Grey : [in flashback]  Dr. Graham.

    Miranda : You were there. When I went back to my office, I worked on Chloe's file. I decided to call it quits, I went down to the pool, had a swim, fifty-five laps, saw Joe, got my keys. Went to my car. You walked me to it.

    Pete : Yes?

    Miranda : But there... There was a detour.

    Sheriff Ryan : [in flashback]  Oh, hey, tell Doug to give me a call...

    Miranda : So I had to go over the bridge, so I went over the bridge.

    Pete : I wonder what else happened. Try to remember.

    Miranda : I got home. I saw Doug. He was on the couch.

    Pete : Try to remember.

    Miranda : There was a girl. Yeah, there was a girl.

  • [last lines] 

    Miranda : No!

  • Miranda : Logic is overrated.

  • [repeated line] 

    Miranda : I'm dreaming.

  • Miranda : How long have I been in here?

    Pete : Three days.

    Miranda : Why? Why?

  • Miranda : I want to talk to my husband. Where is he? Where is he?

  • Miranda : Yeah, as a doctor, I understand why you think that. But something is really happening to me.

  • Teddy Howard : [Miranda's arm is bleeding]  Miranda, what's that?

    Irene : It's okay. It's okay, Miranda.

    Miranda : Why are you doing this to me?

    Pete : Miranda, let's just go, okay? We're done.

    Miranda : Why are you doing this to me?

  • Miranda : [only from the original second draft of the script]  I remind you of your mother?

    Chloe : Always so put together. Like you iron your underwear. Like your pussy is the apricot of the Promised Land and the bread of the...

  • Miranda : Help me! Somebody! Dr. Graham! You better tell me why I'm in here, Irene!

  • Miranda : What do you want from me?
