Female Airport Attendee: Can I ask you a question, Mr. Williams?
Cameron "Buck" Williams: Yeah, sure.
Female Airport Attendee: Do you read the Bible?
Cameron "Buck" Williams: Well...I'm guessing not as often as you do.
Female Airport Attendee: Well, Matthew 24:7 says that there shall be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in diverse places. All of these things, the disasters, the wars, they are all signs.
Chloe Steele: So God knew that all of these things were going to happen?
Female Airport Attendee: Honey, God knows everything.
Chloe Steele: So then why doesn't He do something? I mean, He is God, right? Couldn't He stop a flood if He wanted to? Maybe send a little rain to stop a famine?
Female Airport Attendee: It's a fallen world. God created it perfect, and we destroyed it with the first sin.
Chloe Steele: Who destroyed it? Me? You? (points to Buck) Him?
Female Airport Attendee: The Lord works-
Chloe Steele: In mysterious ways. I know. But somehow, people keep believing that He loves them. Now that is mysterious.

[Airplane passenger Shasta is holding other plane passengers at gunpoint, demanding to know where her young daughter went, having disappeared in the rapture.]
Kimmy: I know where she is. It's in the Bible. My parents sent me to camp one summer, and everyone was talking about this. They said that, one day, millions of people were going to just...just disappear.
Cameron "Buck" Williams: Millions? What else did they say?
Kimmy: I don't remember. It was a long time ago.
Dennis: Are you saying, it was the devil?
Kimmy: No. It was God.
Melvin: [Groans] Don't tell me you believe all this.
Cameron "Buck" Williams: It's not about what I believe.
Shasta: Where are they? Where did did they go?
Kimmy: To heaven.

Captain Rayford Steele: Hattie...this isn't about us. It's about the truth. We need to focus on the truth.
Hattie Durham: The truth, Ray? Are you serious?
Captain Rayford Steele: Yes. This isn't about our past, it's about right now. What's happening on this plane right now. What could be happening everywhere, right now.
Hattie Durham: So they're all in heaven? That's your conclusion? Without speaking to anyone else outside of this plane, you're gonna jump on the first explanation that pops to your head?
Captain Rayford Steele: Irene knew this was coming, in detail. How could that be possible? The way it happened, the way they disappeared. Even, the way that the clothes were still there, in perfect detail. How could she know that? Think about it.
Hattie Durham: Why don't you think about this: you lied to me about your wife. You lied to your wife about this trip. You even lied to your own daughter.
Captain Rayford Steele: I know...
Hattie Durham: It seems that you're able to lie to just about everybody in your life, and now, you're asking me to find God!

[Chloe finds Pastor Bruce at New Hope Church]
Chloe Steele: I don't understand. You worked here, you preached here.
Pastor Bruce Barnes: That's not what counted.
Chloe Steele: What do you mean?
Pastor Bruce Barnes: I knew the words. I could quote them, chapter and verse. But that's not enough. You have to believe.
Chloe Steele: Believe? Believe in what? In a God who killed my father? A God took my mother and my brother, and ripped them out of this world?! A God who crashes planes and destroys cities?!
Pastor Bruce Barnes: He took them to protect them!
Chloe Steele: From what?
Pastor Bruce Barnes: From the darkest time in the history of this world: persecution, war, and seven years of darkness. He took them to heaven.
Chloe Steele: And what about the rest of us? What about me? What am I supposed to do?
Pastor Bruce Barnes: It's not about what we do. It's about asking for forgiveness, and turning our lives-
Chloe Steele: STOP IT!! The God my mother talked about would never do something like this!
Pastor Bruce Barnes: Chloe, please, listen to me!
Chloe Steele: Listen to you? Why should I? You didn't even listen to you!

[Final lines]
Cameron "Buck" Williams: It looks like the end of the world.
Chloe Steele: No. Not yet. I'm afraid this is just the beginning.
