Quotes 

  • Cooper : You're a scientist, Brand.

    Brand : So listen to me when I say that love isn't something that we invented. It's... observable, powerful. It has to mean something.

    Cooper : Love has meaning, yes. Social utility, social bonding, child rearing...

    Brand : We love people who have died. Where's the social utility in that?

    Cooper : None.

    Brand : Maybe it means something more - something we can't yet understand. Maybe it's some evidence, some artefact of a higher dimension that we can't consciously perceive. I'm drawn across the universe to someone I haven't seen in a decade, who I know is probably dead. Love is the one thing we're capable of perceiving that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that, even if we can't understand it. All right Cooper. Yes. The tiniest possibility of seeing Wolf again excites me. That doesn't mean I'm wrong.

    Cooper : Honestly, Amelia... it might.

  • CASE : Ranger 2, prepare to detach.

    Brand : What! NO, NO! Cooper! Cooper, what are you doing?

    Cooper : Newton's third law. You've got to leave something behind.

    Brand : You said there were enough resources for both of us!

    Cooper : We agreed, Dr. Brand... ninety percent.

  • Brand : Love is the one thing we're capable of perceiving that transcends time and space.

  • Brand : Cooper, you can't ask TARS to do this for us.

    Cooper : He's a robot. So you don't have to *ask* him to do anything.

    Brand : Cooper, you asshole!

    Cooper : Sorry, you broke up a little bit there.

    TARS : It's what we intended, Dr. Brand. It's our only chance to save the people on Earth. If I can find a way to transmit the quantum data I'll find in there, they might still make it.

  • Brand : You might have to decide between seeing your children again and the future of the human race.

  • Doyle : Where's the rest?

    Brand : Towards the mountains!

    Cooper : Those aren't mountains... they're waves.

    Brand : Oh shit. Oh shit!

    Cooper : That one's moving away from us...

    Brand : [struggling through the water]  We need the recorder!

    Cooper : [he looks in the other direction and sees a mounting wave towering thousands of feet over them]  Brand, Doyle, back to the Ranger, now!

  • Cooper : It's hard leaving everything... my kids, your father...

    Brand : [cutting him off]  We're gonna be spending a lot of time together...

    Cooper : We should learn to talk.

    Brand : And when not to. Just being honest.

    Cooper : I don't think you need to be *that* honest.

  • Cooper : Oh we are not prepared for this. We have the survival skills of a Boy Scout troop!

    Brand : Well we got this far on our brains, further than any human in history.

    Cooper : Well not far enough! And now we're stuck *here*, until there won't be anyone on Earth left to save!

    Brand : I'm counting every minute, same as you, Cooper.

  • Brand : Time is relative, okay? It can stretch and it can squeeze, but... it can't run backwards. Just can't. The only thing that can move across dimensions, like time, is gravity.

  • Brand : Couldn't you've told her you were going to save the world?

    Cooper : No. When you become a parent, one thing becomes really clear. And that's that you want to make sure your children feel safe. And that rules out telling a 10-year old that the world's ending.

  • Brand : Maybe we've spent too long trying to figure all this out with theory.

    Cooper : You're a scientist, Brand.

    Brand : So listen to me, when I say that love is not something we invented. It's observable, powerful. It has to mean something.

    Cooper : Love has meaning, yes. Social utility, social bonding, child rearing...

    Brand : We love people who've died. Where's the "social utility" in that?

    Cooper : None.

  • Cooper : Well, this little maneuver's gonna cost us 51 years!

    Brand : You don't sound so bad for a man pushing 120!

  • Cooper : We wanna get down fast, don't we?

    Brand : Actually we want to get there in one piece.

    Cooper : Hang on.

  • Brand : I'm not gonna make it!

    Cooper : Yes you are, yes you are!

  • Romilly : Of all these anomalies, the most significant is this: out near Saturn, a disturbance of space-time.

    Cooper : It's a wormhole?

    Romilly : Appeared 48 years ago.

    Cooper : And, it leads where?

    Dr. Brand : Another galaxy.

    Cooper : A wormhole's not a naturally occurring phenomenon...

    Brand : Someone placed it there.

    Cooper : "They."

    Brand : And whoever they are, they appear to be looking out for us. That wormhole, lets us travel to other stars. Came along right as we needed it.

    Doyle : They've put potentially habitable worlds right within our reach. Twelve, in fact, from our initial probes.

    Cooper : You send probes into that?

    Doyle : Mm-hm.

    Dr. Brand : We sent *people* into it. Ten years ago.

    Cooper : The Lazarus missions.

    Dr. Brand : Twelve possible worlds, twelve Ranger launches, carrying the bravest humans ever to live. Led by the remarkable Dr. Mann.

    Doyle : Each person's landing pod had enough life support for two years, but they could use hibernation to stretch that, making observations on organics over a decade or more. Their mission was to assess their world, and if it showed potential, then they could send out a signal, bed down for the long nap, wait to be rescued.

    Cooper : And what if the world didn't show promise?

    Doyle : Hence the bravery.

  • Cooper : Detach!

    Brand : Goodbye TARS.

    TARS : Good-bye Dr. Brand. See you on the other side Coop.

    Cooper : See you there slick!

  • Cooper : [the ranger won't take off]  CASE, what's the problem?

    CASE : Too waterlogged. Let it drain.

    Cooper : GODDAMN IT!

    [smashes the dashboard] 

    Brand : I told you to leave me.

    Cooper : And I told you to get your ass back here!

    Brand : Why didn't you leave me?

    Cooper : The difference is one of us was thinking about the mission, Brand!

    [Cooper punches the wall next to Brand's head] 

    Brand : Cooper, you were thinking about getting home! I was trying to do the right thing!

    Cooper : You tell that to Doyle!

  • Dr. Mann : Your father had to find another way to save the human race from extinction. Plan B. A colony.

    Brand : But why not tell people? Why keep building those damn stations?

    Dr. Mann : Because he knew how hard it would be to get people to work together to save the species instead of themselves.

    Cooper : Bullshit.

    Dr. Mann : You never would have come here unless you believed you were going to save them. Evolution has yet to transcend that simple barrier. We can care deeply - selflessly - about those we know, but that empathy rarely extends beyond our line of sight.

    Brand : But the lie... that monstrous lie...

    Dr. Mann : Unforgivable. And he knew that. He was prepared to destroy his own humanity in order to save the species. He made an incredible sacrifice...

    Cooper : No. No, the incredible sacrifice is being made by the people on Earth who are gonna die! Because in his fucking arrogance he declared their case hopeless.

    Dr. Mann : I'm sorry Cooper. Their case... is hopeless.

    Cooper : No... no.

    Dr. Mann : We are the future.

  • [after Cooper and Brand return to the Endurance 23 years later] 

    Brand : Why didn't you sleep?

    Romilly : Oh, I had a couple of stretches. I stopped believing you were coming back. Something seemed wrong about dreaming my life away.

  • [after Mann breaks Cooper's helmet and leaves him for dead] 

    Dr. Mann : I'm sorry. I can't watch you go through this. I'm sorry. I thought I could, but I can't. I'm here. I'm here for you. Just listen to my voice, Cooper. I'm right here. You're not alone.

    Dr. Mann : [looking back]  Do you see your children? It's okay, they're right there with you.

    Dr. Mann : [turns to leave]  Did Professor Brand tell you that poem before you left? Do you remember? "Do not go gentle... into that good night. Old age should burn and rave at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light."

    [Mann switches off his transmitter. Cooper chokes; Cooper manages to get his long-range transmitter reinstalled] 

    Cooper : [gasping]  MURPH! HELP! HELP!

    Cooper : Cooper? CASE! Go! Go!

    Cooper : No... No air... ammonia...

    Brand : Cooper, we're coming! Hang in there, don't talk! Try to breathe as little as possible, we're almost there!

  • Brand : Very graceful.

    Cooper : No. But very efficient.

  • Brand : [reuniting with Romilly, after just a few hours on Miller's planet, deep in Gargantua's gravity well]  Hello, Rom.

    Romilly : I've waited years.

    Cooper : How... How many years?

    Romilly : By now it must be...

    TARS : It's twenty-three years, four months, eight days.

    Romilly : Doyle?

    [Cooper stares at floor, walks past] 

    Brand : I thought I was prepared. I knew the theory, I... Reality's different.

    Romilly : Miller?

    Brand : There's nothing here for us.

  • Brand : Dr. Mann, do not open the inner hatch. I repeat, do not open the inner hatch! I repeat, do not open...

    Dr. Mann : Brand? I don't know what he said to you, but I am taking command of the Endurance, and then we can talk about completing the mission.

    Brand : Dr. Mann, listen to me...

    Dr. Mann : This is not about my life, or Cooper's life; this is about all mankind!

    [opening the inner hatch] 

    Dr. Mann : There is a moment...

    [the airlock explodes] 

  • [as they pass through the wormhole a space-time distortion appears inside of the Endurance] 

    Romilly : What is that?

    Brand : I think it's them.

    [she reaches toward the distortion] 

    Doyle : Don't, don't!

    [Brand touches the distortion; the Endurance exits the wormhole and space returns to normal] 

    Romilly : What was that?

    Brand : [grinning]  First handshake.

  • Doyle : Potentially habitable worlds right within our reach.

    Brand : Could save us from extinction.

  • [They land on Miller's Planet, which has severe gravitational time dilation] 

    Brand : [sardonically]  Very graceful.

    Cooper : No. But very efficient.

    [He looks at Doyle, who has been alarmed by the landing, and then at Brand] 

    Cooper : What are you waiting for? Let's go. Go, go, go, go go! Seven years per hour here. Let's make it count.

  • TARS : Sir, I'm having trouble completing the bootup.

    Romilly : I don't understand.

    TARS : There is a security lockout, sir, it requires a person to access function. It's all yours, sir.

    [Romilly accesses archives] 

    Romilly : [confused]  This data makes no sense.

    Cooper : [lying on the floor of the Ranger after the fight with Mann]  I'm sorry.

    Brand : What?

    Cooper : Mann... was lying! Go, go! Romilly!

    Brand : [transmitting]  Romilly! Romilly, do you read me, Romilly? Romilly!

    [Romilly puts in his ear piece] 

    TARS : [realizing that KIPP has been booby-trapped]  Step back professor! STEP BACK!

    [Mann's landing pod explodes with TARS and Romilly inside] 

  • Cooper : [the ranger's engines are waterlogged, needing time to dry before they can leave Miller's planet]  CASE! How much time?

    CASE : 45 to an hour.

    Cooper : Agh!

    [removes helmet] 

    Cooper : The stuff of life, huh? What's this gonna cost us, Brand?

    Brand : [devastated]  A lot. Decades.

    Cooper : God... What happened to Miller?

    Brand : Judging by the... wreckage, she was broken up by a wave soon after impact.

    Cooper : How does the wreckage stay together after all these years, huh?

    Brand : Because of the time slippage. On this planet's time, she just landed hours ago, she... she probably just died minutes ago.

  • Brand : We love people who have died. Where's the social utility in that?

    Cooper : None.

    Brand : Maybe it means something more, something we can't... yet, understand. Maybe it's some evidence, some... artifact of a higher dimension that we can't consciously perceive. I'm drawn across the universe to someone I haven't seen in a decade... who I know is probably dead. Love is the one thing we're capable of perceiving... that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that, even if we can't understand it yet. All right, Cooper... yes... the tiniest possibility of seeing Wolf again excites me. That doesn't mean I'm wrong.

    Cooper : Honestly, Amelia... it might. TARS, chart a course for Dr. Mann's.

  • Cooper : I'm sorry.

    Brand : What?

    Cooper : Mann... was lying!
