City of Ember (2008) Poster


Tim Robbins: Loris Harrow



  • Loris Harrow : The main thing is, pay attention. Pay close attention to everything, everything you see. Notice what no one else notices, and you'll know what no one else knows. What you get is what you get. What you do with what you get, that's more the point.

  • Doon Harrow : The Builders left instructions.

    Loris Harrow : The Builders abandoned us.

    Doon Harrow : No, they didn't. They didn't, Dad. I have proof.

    Loris Harrow : Show me.

  • Doon Harrow : The Generator's our only source of power. If it goes, we all go.

    Loris Harrow : That's dramatic.

    Doon Harrow : Dad, this place is falling apart. I will not sit around while Ember collapses. I am getting in to that generator, whatever it takes.

  • Loris Harrow : [narrating]  Lina and Doon tied their hope to a rock and tossed it down toward the city. The rock could've ended up on a roof. Or kicked into a gutter. But fate ran another course. And the message found its way. Now the path was clear for all. All of us who kept the flame of Ember burning, through the darkness, so that we could live again on the earth, in the air and the light.

  • Loris Harrow : [narrating]  On the day the world ended, the fate of mankind was carried in a small metal box. In a secret location, architects, scientists and engineers met and concluded that there was only one hope for our future: to build an underground city designed to keep its citizens protected for generations to come. The box was entrusted to the first mayor, who was to pass it on to her successor. As the years counted down, the box passed from mayor to mayor. None knew what secrets it held, only that it would open when it was needed most. But fate ran another course, and the chain was broken. The box was tucked away and forgotten, and as the city grew old and began to crumble, the box quietly clicked open.

  • Loris Harrow : [to Doon]  Builders were wise when they said, "If you have proof, you have to pursue it!" There's more to a bottle cap than keeping liquid from leaking out of glass!

  • Doon Harrow : [Doon is showing his father the oversized insect claw from the Unknown Regions and comparing it with a picture in a book]  How do you explain that this used to be so small?

    Loris Harrow : [Loris lives in denial]  You're gonna give yourself a headache.

  • Loris Harrow : What can you do about it? Hmm? What can *you* do about it?
