Bright (I) (2017)
Joel Edgerton: Nick Jakoby
Nick Jakoby : You're fearless. You always know what to do. What you did tonight, that's what it takes for an Orc to get blooded. An act of great bravery. To me, you're like a blooded human.
Daryl Ward : I used to be like you. Think you can save everybody and fix everything and... Now I just pretend to be a good dude. You still are one.
Nick Jakoby : [about the wand] This is like a nuclear weapon that grants wishes.
Nick Jakoby : When an Orc sees me, they see a man... a wannabe human. When humans see me, they see an animal. They hate me.
Daryl Ward : Let's give this motherfucker the wand.
Nick Jakoby : What?
Daryl Ward : Look, we're gonna get everybody in here killed, and then he's gonna take the damn wand anyway.
Nick Jakoby : I'm not giving that guy the wand. Over my dead body. He's gonna have to kill me first.
Daryl Ward : So you want to die, in a gunfight, in a nasty-ass titty bar? That's what you want?
Nick Jakoby : I don't wanna die anywhere.
Daryl Ward : Well, you know what? Now I do. Fuck it. I wanna die. Let's do it right now! We're gonna titty-bar-gunfight die! Let's do it, right here, right now! Are you ready? I just wish your dumb ass was a better shot.
Sophia Ward : Hi, Nick.
Nick Jakoby : Hey, Sophia! What's up, rockstar?
[They bump fists]
Sophia Ward : We're gonna go to Grandma's.
Nick Jakoby : Grandma's? Well, hop in, we'll give you a ride.
Daryl Ward : Shut up! This ain't no Uber, man!
Sophia Ward : Don't tell Nick to shut up! He's a person, too.
Daryl Ward : Thank you, sweetie.
Nick Jakoby : Enlightened kid you got there, Daryl.
[Nick carries Daryl out of a burning building, and they both collapse]
Daryl Ward : Still not my friend.
Nick Jakoby : Ah, I never really liked you anyway.
Daryl Ward : Think you're a big dog now that you're blooded, huh?
Nick Jakoby : Yeah, pretty big.
Daryl Ward : Hey, Nick?
Nick Jakoby : Yeah?
Daryl Ward : Fuck magic.
Nick Jakoby : Oh, I don't know. I still think it's kinda cool.
City Councilman : Faced with armed terrorists, obsessed with myths from thousands of years ago, two of our officers held the line...
Daryl Ward : [sotto] I hate seeing those scumbags up there with Rodriguez.
Nick Jakoby : [sotto] Let it go, Ward. We know, okay? That's enough.
City Councilman : ...Officer Daryl Ward, and our nation's first Orcish police officer, Nicholas Jakoby. Jakoby...
[Nick bows, allowing the Councilman to hang a medal around his neck. Daryl sees Tikka hiding in the crowd, and smiles for the first time]
City Councilman : Ward...
[Ward bows, and receives his medal]
City Councilman : Congratulations, Ward.
Daryl Ward : Thank you, sir.
Nick Jakoby : I believe that you're lacking in love, Ward.
Daryl Ward : I'm what?
Nick Jakoby : By love, I mean, like... physical love.
Daryl Ward : Yeah. Um...
Nick Jakoby : Right?
Daryl Ward : I'm straight. I don't need no physical love. Trust me, I'm good.
Nick Jakoby : You can't hide it, Ward. Humans have physical tells.
Daryl Ward : Tells, huh?
Nick Jakoby : Yeah. It's called a face.
Daryl Ward : I ain't making no face.
Nick Jakoby : Like the face you're making right now.
Daryl Ward : I ain't making no face. All right, what face am I making?
Nick Jakoby : "A human who needs a lot more conjugal love" type face.
Daryl Ward : "Conjugal love" face.
Daryl Ward : So you know human faces. Show me another human face. What's another one we make?
Nick Jakoby : Oh, uh...
Daryl Ward : What's that face?
Nick Jakoby : Human who doesn't get any more pancakes.
Daryl Ward : [laughs] We do like our pancakes, for real.
Nick Jakoby : I got a lot of 'em.
Daryl Ward : You got a lot?
Nick Jakoby : I got a lot of them.
Daryl Ward : Show me the face an Orc makes when he just shut the fuck up, and don't say shit, and just drive to work.
[Nick glares at him]
Daryl Ward : Yeah, that's it! That's it! Oh, you got that one! Yeah, you killing that one. You should do that one. Do that one, like, all the time.
Nick Jakoby : [to Kandomere] There was an elf woman. She owned the wand, right? It must have been hers. Not a very nice lady. Dressed very well - like you - but she was a terrible woman.
Daryl Ward : Look, you need to un-fuck this right now, you got to magic our asses to Cabo or something...
Tikka : I saved your friend's life. Isn't that enough?
Daryl Ward : It's a start, but...
Nick Jakoby : Ward, enough. I happen to think it's a pretty big deal.
Nick Jakoby : Thank you.
