Nicolas Cage: Johnny Blaze, Ghost Rider
Johnny Blaze : [to Vasil] You will tell me or I will eat your stinking soul!
Johnny Blaze : [voiceover] It doesn't matter how far you run, there are some demons you just can't escape. My name is Johnny Blaze, I used to ride a motorcycle for a living. I did a bare ass 360 triple back flip in front of twenty two thousand people. It's kind of funny, it's on Youtube, check it out. But when my dad got sick, I did something way crazier than that.
Roarke : You look like you can use a little help, are you willing to make a deal, John?
Johnny Blaze : Do it, save his life, do it!
Johnny Blaze : Yeah that is right, I'm the guy who made a deal with the devil. Now I know what you're thinking: does this kid ever watch movies, does this ever work out fine? Well, let's just say good judgement wasn't exactly my forte. I was possessed by an ancient demon. In the presence of evil, I change into a monster, and I prey on the wicked, and I suck out their souls. And you don't want to be around when that happens. See, there's good and bad in all of us, and maybe you're not a murderer, but you did something that you didn't want the Rider to see: a white lie, an illegal download. What about you? And you? I've tried to fight it, to hold it back, but the darkness inside me only gets stronger. That's why I had to run, halfway across the world... and I'm still running.
Johnny Blaze : When we get where we're going, the Rider's going to come out. And when he does... he'll destroy whoever's got it coming. Nadya, this thing... there's no reason, no conscience, just hunger. In his eyes, you're no different than Carrigan. You're no different than any of them.
Nadya : I'm not afraid of you.
Johnny Blaze : Yeah? Well, you should be.
Ghost Rider : Go home.
[Ghost Rider slams Roarke into the ground, sending him back to Hell]
Johnny Blaze : [voiceover] Why does the devil walk on human form anyway? I have no idea. Maybe he doesn't know either. Maybe he passes on from body to body, down through history, waiting for the perfect fit. But I know one thing, on Earth, he's weak. His powers are limited. He needs emissaries to do his dirty work, so he finds them or makes them, using his greatest power, the power of the deal.
Moreau : Without the Rider, we stand very little chance against Roarke.
Johnny Blaze : I thought you were supposed to have faith.
Moreau : I do. But also, I think we should have weapons.
Johnny Blaze : Guns and wine. Naughty priests.
Nadya : [touches an automatic gun] I'm starting to like you again, Moreau.
Nadya : When you met the seducer, he offered you something.
Johnny Blaze : Yeah. My father's life. Shocker, he lied.
Nadya : For me, it was only myself. It was suppose to be a big score for Carrigan, but it went bad. I made it out of the third-floor window. I was choking on my own blood. I knew I was gonna die. I could feel it. And that's when he found me.
Roarke : [flash back] You look like you could use a little help.
Johnny Blaze : Roarke.
Nadya : He promised to take the pain away to save my life. But he asked for something in return.
Johnny Blaze : A son?
Nadya : Maybe can never understand.
Johnny Blaze : No, I get it. You're the Devil's baby mama.
Johnny Blaze : I don't save people.
Vasil : I got what you need for the shakes, my friend.
Johnny Blaze : Carrigan must have told about that thing that killed his men last night, huh? Yeah? That thing is inside of me. See, you're a bad man, and this thing, the Rider, he feeds on bad men. And he's hungry. He's hungrier than he's been in years. That's why I'm shaking! Because right now the only thing that's standing between you and the Rider is me. And he's just - He's...
Johnny Blaze : He's scraping at the door. Scraping at the door! And if you don't tell what I wanna know, I'm gonna let him out. And when he's done with you, there won't be anything left, you understand?
Johnny Blaze : What is it? This thing inside of me? I'd like to know before we, uh, commence.
Moreau : Hm. Zarathos was an angel, a Spirit of Justice. Sent to protect the world of men. But he was tricked, captured, brought down to Hell, corrupted. Driven insane. Heh. His mission to protect the innocent was perverted into a lust to punish the guilty. He became the Spirit of Vengeance.
Johnny Blaze : Yeah, but the angel, the Spirit of Justice, he's alive in there? Somewhere?
Moreau : He could be. Do you feel him?
Johnny Blaze : No.
Moreau : Cheer up, my man. Soon, you will be free.
Johnny Blaze : There's no sign of him.
Moreau : Whoever did this wanted him alive.
Johnny Blaze : Well I think we all have a pretty good idea who that would be, Moreau.
Nadya : Yes, so now he's with Roarke. Some protectors you turned out to be.
Johnny Blaze : What exactly does Roarke want with Danny? What are his plans for his son? Is he putting money away for college? What?
Moreau : It is the day of prophecy. As was the day Danny was conceived. The child must be in his 13th year before the rite can be performed on the dawn of a new winter.
Johnny Blaze : The rite.
Moreau : Roarke fathered the boy as a vessel, as a container for his power. The ritual will transform his essence, his soul into the boy. There will be no more Danny. Only Roarke.
Nadya : No!
Johnny Blaze : Why the hell didn't you tell us this, Moreau?
Moreau : Hey. You are the one who that made a deal with Roarke! Both of you! Something I would never do.
Johnny Blaze : All right. The prophecy, you said it had to happen at the dawn of a new day. Well, that's good. Maybe there's still time. Do you know where Roarke has him?
Moreau : I think so. Yes.
Nadya : What, so now you want to play hero? You got what you wanted.
Johnny Blaze : Yes, I did. Thank you for holding up your end of the bargain.
Moreau : Your welcome.
Johnny Blaze : If I can spend the rest of my life as a free man without a curse from Hell hanging over my head, yeah, I'll take it. But I promised Danny he'd be safe. If I walk away now, I'm just trading one demon for another. Let's go.
Johnny Blaze : [drinks Moreau's wine] This might be good on a salad.
Ghost Rider : [to thug before using the Penance Stare] Hungry!
Moreau : We thought you can control it, make it work for you, huh? That you were stronger than this hungrier thing, this sickness...
Johnny Blaze : [Johnny hits Moreau with his chain and chokes him] Why are you here? What do you want from me?
Moreau : I need your help, and you need your soul. So we make a deal. You know something about making deals, don't you Johnny?
[Johnny releases his chain around his throat]
Moreau : Nice bike.
[Moreau pulls out picture of Danny]
Moreau : This child is in danger, and for more than his life. You will save him.
Johnny Blaze : I don't save people.
Moreau : [laughs] What brought you out here, Johnny Blaze? Thousands of miles from your place of birth, and your dark rebirth, you were brought here for this.
Johnny Blaze : This little kid, what makes you think I can find him?
Moreau : This man that you met many years ago, that put the curse on you...
Johnny Blaze : Roarke.
Moreau : The Devil has many names. He is the link that connects you to this child. Let the Rider follow his stench that will lead to the boy.
Johnny Blaze : You said something about a deal.
Moreau : The church of my masters is an ancient one. We are prepared to give to you the one thing you want most of this world, bring us the boy, and we will lift your curse.
