John Kramer/Jigsaw edit

Quotes edit

  • Were it not for a careless mistake by a resident at the hospital I was in... my cancer could've been diagnosed a lot sooner. It was simply the wrong name on an x-ray. Would've saved me a whole lot of hardship.
  • We were neighbors. Anna and me.
  • Now, if you want to achieve your freedom, you have to learn. You have to realize that you've been doing it backwards. So, I'm gonna give you an opportunity to turn it all around. Here's your key to freedom. It's all up to you. Now, the game's simple. The best ones are. You have one shotgun. You have one shell. Like I said: it's up to you.
  • We can never come from anger or from vengeance. You taught me that.

Tapes / Video edit

  • I'm sure you're all wondering why you're here. You deny culpability, no doubt, for the circumstances in which you find yourselves. Salvation can be yours if you cleanse yourselves of the habitual lies which have brought you here. Lies that you have told yourselves, lies which have brutalized others. Confess. The truth will set you free. But any attempt to violate my rules will kill you. I want to play a game... First, an offering of blood, no matter how little, will give you a green light to escape from this room with your lives. If you can release yourself from your demons, you can shed the chains that those demons bring with them. Make the simple blood sacrifice that I've requested, or face severe consequences. The choice is yours.
  • The games have begun again. And they will not stop until the sins against the innocent are atoned for. I will take care of the next four. You take care of the rest.
  • While I am certain there is a desire to point fingers at me for the blood that has been shed, unless you turn that finger inward, I assure you, more blood will be lost, and all will be judged. We will begin with one -- one who is not only a liar, but a thief. A purse snatcher. And when you had a chance to fix the harm that you had done, you chose to do nothing. Now it is you who could die without the right medication. While unconscious, this deceiver among you, this criminal, was injected with a poison. One of the syringes in front of you holds the antidote. One is a saline solution. The other? An acid that will cause an excruciating death. Inject the correct one, and your chains will be released. Failure to make the right choice could result in death for you all. I ask you: What is a life worth to you?
  • There are no shortcuts in life. Please forgive the rather crude example I will make of your decision to not follow the rules. Pull the handle, and you will be set free.
  • In the past, you have all put your own interests above others and then lied to others and decieved the world about your callousness, your larceny, your criminality. Now, you will look in the mirror, and you will face who you really are. The choices you have made may cost you your life. You cannot escape the truth. There is, however, one person who can help you: Ryan. If he pulls the lever before you're buried alive, you will live. William. Free yourself, to free them.
  • Hello, Mitch. You've admitted to selling a boy a motorcycle. But you've not told the entire story, have you? Six hundred dollars for a bike that you listed in 'excellent condition', even though you knew the brakes were faulty. You took his six hundred bucks... and in return, you delivered him to his end. He was my nephew, and he never hurt anyone. The device you see here has a unique power source: It has the same engine that graced the bike you sold my nephew. However, I assure you the brake lever for this one works perfectly. Avoid the dangers around you. Hit the motorcycle brake handle, and the motor will stop. Live or die, Mitch. The choice is yours.
  • Hello, Gentlemen. You came looking for the game. Congratulations: you've found it. You are the final two players. You may recognize the device around your collar, Doctor Nelson. These laser cutters slice through tissue and bone like butter. The most powerful blade on the planet. You both have an opportunity to live. All you need to do is confess. It's that easy. If you admit to the reason that you deserve to die, you can escape death. I will be listening. Make your choice. The game will select one of you to begin in sixty seconds. Unless, of course, someone chooses to go first.
  • Your turn, Detective.
  • Confess.
  • Hello, Edgar. You're about to play a game. Five lives are in your hands. Follow my instructions exactly.

Logan Nelson edit

  • Cell phone's off for a reason, Halloran.
  • (Looks at all of the games in Elanor's studio) A hobby? That's what you call it?
  • John decided I shouldn't have to die over an honest mistake; he gave me a second chance.
  • Jigsaw put five people in his game. I put in three; you and I are the last two. I wanted to see if I was as worthy as him. As... talented.
  • Some will think it's Jigsaw. Some will suspect you. But no one will suspect me.
  • Ten years ago, I came out of the war a broken man. Jigsaw put the pieces of my life back together again.
  • Now, I speak for the lives ruined by people like you. Murderers, rapists... their victims appear on my table, because of you.
  • I speak for the dead.

Detective Halloran edit

  • Okay, which one of you assholes shot him in the chest?
  • We're good friends. I've put him away twice.

Other edit

'Edgar Munson: I gotta choose who lives or dies! I'm not fucking dying!
Elanor: Supposedly, John Kramer had designed to built this game that takes place before the others.

Dialogue edit

Halloran: Edgar, what the fuck are you doing? You put down that remote.
Edgar Munson: I can't!
Halloran: What's that for?
Edgar Munson: The game has just getting started
Halloran: What game?
Edgar Munson: His game! His rules! I gotta choose who lives or dies! THEM OR ME!
Halloran: (Pulls out a gun) Edgar, I don't wanna shoot you, but I will! Drop the remote
Keith Hunt: I got him! Should I take it?
Halloran: No, no, no, no! Target the remote. Because if he moves the trigger and it will blow up to shit.
Edgar Munson: I'm telling you they're five!
Halloran': EDGAR!
Edgar Munson: I'm not fucking dying! (Pulls the trigger)

(Halloran and Hunt fire their guns along with the police officers when Edgar's left arm is suddenly ripped off) (Then, Halloran and Hunt walked closer to the body as Edgar Munson moaned in pain)

Halloran: Okay, which one of you assholes shot him in the chest?

(Halloran looks at Hunt, who just raised his hands and makes a face saying don't look at me)

Edgar Munson: (Wheezes) The game! It's started!

(hr width="50%/">

Anna: An offering of blood? (Touches sawblade and it cuts her. The buckethead comes off after it turns green. Then, she turns to Mitch) Cut yourself! You need to cut yourself! He wants blood, and you're free!

(Mitch uses his arms on the door)

Anna: (To Ryan) You need to cut yourself! He wants blood!

(Mitch tries to place his fingers on the sawblade, but accidentally slips in front of the door and slices his arms. Mitch takes the bucket off while Ryan does the same thing with his)

Anna: (To Carly) Cut yourself! You need to cut yourself!
Carly: I CAN'T!

(Anna pushes Carly to the door as the blades slices Carly's back and she takes the bucket off her head thus resulting only 4 doors to open)

Anna: (To the unconscious man who just finally woke up) CUT YOURSELF! YOU NEED TO CUT YOURSELF! CUT YOURSELF!

(The man turns around and was sliced to the back)

Keith Hunt: Why did he ask for you?
Halloran: We were good friends. I've put him away twice.

Keith Hunt: You started a suspect list with Munson's associates.
Halloran: This is not gonna end well. Hungry?

Logan Nelson: Cellphone's off for a reason, Halloran. (Halloran took one last breath of his cigarette and he motions Logan to come here.)

(In the Morgue, Logan and Elanor examine a body with a bucket on his head

Logan Nelson: What do you think, Elanor?
Elanor: I don't know. He looks a little pale.
Logan Nelson: Let's get this thing off

(Takes the bucket off of the victim's head and his face had been distorted) (Elanor saw a Jigsaw puzzle symbol that has been torn off of the man's neck)

Elanor: Someone must be studying up on John Kramer. Copycat?
Halloran: Hope not. Jigsaw's been dead for 10 years.

Ryan: What's going on?
John Kramer: You're about to play a game.
Anna: No, no! What are you doing, John, what are you doing?!
John Kramer: It's a final test.
Ryan: I already passed your test -- look at my fucking leg!
John Kramer: That wasn't your test, Ryan. And that wouldn't have been necessary if you'd simply played by the rules.

Ryan: I wanna live... I wanna live!
John Kramer: As do I, Ryan. As do we all. But things happen.

John Kramer: Did you know that pigs are highly compassionate animals? They show distress if they see any other animal, including humans, suffering.
Anna: What about you, John? Where's your compassion?
John Kramer: We all have a thumb on the scale, Anna... For good or for evil. You've been weighing in on the wrong side of the scale. Both of you.

Halloran: Oh! Logan, have mercy.
Logan: Like you just had mercy on me, when you started our game just now? Pushing my button? Saving yourself.

Halloran: This won't bring your family back. John Kramer gave people a chance to win the game. A choice.
[Halloran takes a swipe and misses.]
Halloran: Fuck! You fucker...
Logan: You have a choice: scream, or don't.
[Logan begins to walk away.]
Halloran: Hey, Logan, Logan, Logan, hey... Look, I can help you, I can... I-- I can do things for you...
[Logan returns and slams the walls beside Halloran, clearly enraged.]
Logan: Can you bring my wife back?
Halloran: ...doesn't matter what I say, does it?

John Kramer: We can never come from anger, or from vengeance. You taught me that.
Logan: But then there will be no justice.
John Kramer: Ah, but there will. Because we'll speak for the dead.
