John Anderton: That's all, huh? Just walk right into Precrime, go in the Temple, somehow tap into these Precogs, and then download this Minority Report.
Dr. Iris Hineman: If you have one.
John Anderton: And then walk out.
Dr. Iris Hineman: Actually, I think you'll have to run out, but yes, that is what you have to do. (imdb.com)

John Anderton: Why'd you catch that?
Danny Witwer: Because it was going to fall.
John Anderton: You're certain?
Danny Witwer: Yeah.
John Anderton: But it didn't fall. You caught it. The fact that you prevented it from happening doesnt change the fact that it was *going* to happen. (imdb.com)

Cyber Parlor Customer: I wanna kill my boss.
Rufus Riley: Uh-huh, okay. You got some images I can work with?
(spots John approaching with Agatha and hastily tries to cover up his unethical transaction)
Rufus Riley: ... Uh, yeah, being concertmaster for the Philadelphia Symphony is one of our most popular choices...
Cyber Parlor Customer: No, I wanna kill my boss.

Leo Crow: You're not going to kill me.
John Anderton: Goodbye, Crow. (imdb.com)

Danny Witwer: Looks like we won't be working together after all, John. Now put the gun down. I don't hear a red ball.
(Sirens begin going off, the same sirens that usually indicate a red ball- Witwer's smile drops) (imdb.com)

Officer Fletcher: John, don't run.
John Anderton: You don't have to chase me. (imdb.com)

John Anderton: You set your patients on fire.
Dr. Solomon: I put 'em out. (imdb.com)

Lara Anderton: How do you take your coffee?
Danny Witwer: Cream and sugar.
Lara Anderton: I don't have any cream, sorry.
Danny Witwer: Just sugar, then. You and John ever come here?
Lara Anderton: (begins to walk away towards the kitchen) We used to.
Danny Witwer: He's not here now is he?
Lara Anderton: (stops in the doorway and looks at him)
Danny Witwer: I had to ask.
Lara Anderton: (walks back to Danny and hands back his cup) I don't have any sugar, either. (imdb.com)

Lamar Burgess: My father once told me, "We don't choose the things we believe in; they choose us." (imdb.com)

John Anderton: There hasn't been a murder in six years. The system, it is perfect. (imdb.com)

John Anderton: (about Witwer's father) What does he think about your chosen line of work?
Danny Witwer: I don't know. He was shot and killed when I was 15 on the steps of our church in Dublin. I know what it's like to lose someone close, John. 'Course, nothing is like the loss of a child. I don't have any children of my own, so I can only imagine what that must've been like. To lose your son - in such a public place like that. At least now you and I have the chance to make sure that kind of thing doesn't happen to anyone...
John Anderton: Why don't you cut the cute act, Danny boy, and tell me exactly what it is you're looking for?
Danny Witwer: Flaws.
John Anderton: There hasn't been a murder in 6 years. There's nothing wrong with the system, it is perfect.
Danny Witwer: (simultaneously) perfect. I agree. But if there's a flaw, it's human. It always is.

(Anderton gets wheeled into containment unit)
Gideon: You're part of my flock now, John. (imdb.com)

Director Burgess: Who's the victim?
John Anderton: Somebody.
Director Burgess: Who?
John Anderton: (trying to remember the name) Somebody. Leo Crow.
Director Burgess: Who is he?
John Anderton: I have no idea! I've never heard of him! But I'm supposed to kill him in less than thirty-six hours. (imdb.com)

Danny Witwer: (Using Anderton's projector and puts a clear recorded device into it) This is a murder of a woman named Anne Livley.
Lamar Burgess: You got this from containment?
Danny Witwer: Yes. This is from the twins, Arthur and Dashiell. Agatha's datastream is missing.
(Takes out the clear device and gets out another clear device from his suit pocket)
Danny Witwer: This is from the Cyber Parlor.
(Puts that clear device into Anderton's projector)
Danny Witwer: Anderton dowloaded this directly from Agatha, and Rufus Riley recorded it.
Lamar Burgess: It's the same prevision.
Danny Witwer: Not quite.
(Gets up and goes to the video on the wall)
Danny Witwer: Watch the wave action across the water. Watch the ripples. Moving
(Moves his pinky)
Danny Witwer: *away* from shore.
(Goes over to the projector and changes recorded devices)
Danny Witwer: This is from containment what Art and Dash saw.
(Goes back to the wall)
Danny Witwer: The wind has changed. The ripples are moving the other way.
(Moves his pinky to the direction of the ripples)
Danny Witwer: This murder is taking place at 2 different times. The sentry has said that Anderton was actually watching this in containment right before he was tagged.
Lamar Burgess: Yes, yes. He came to me and told me about the missing prevision. He was afraid that you might find it.
Danny Witwer: He was right. I *did* find it. But one question remains: Why would somebody want this erased from the data file?
Lamar Burgess: Danny. Tell me. What are you thinking?
Danny Witwer: I'm thinking somebody got away with murder.
Lamar Burgess: I don't understand.
Danny Witwer: Well, Jad told me that sometimes the Pre-Cogs see the same murder more than once.
Lamar Burgess: It's called an "echo".
Danny Witwer: Jad calls it "Pre-Cog Deja Vu".
Lamar Burgess: Yes. The Pre-Cog technician finds these echoes and disregard them.
Danny Witwer: (laughs slightly) Yes, but um... what if the technician only *thought* that he was looking at an echo? What if he was really looking at was a completely different murder altogether?
Lamar Burgess: Uh, I don't understand.
Danny Witwer: All you have to do is hire someone to kill Anne Livley for you, someone like a drifter, a neuroin addict, somebody with nothing to lose. Pre-Crime stops the murder from taking place, Halos the killer, takes him away but then, right then someone else that has viewed the pre-vision. Dresses in the same clothes, commits the murder in *exactly* the same way. Technician takes a look, *thinks* he's looking at an echo, erases it.
(Brief pause)
Danny Witwer: Of course, this would have to be somebody with access to the previsions in the first place. Someone *fairly* high-up...
Lamar Burgess: (Shushes Witwer) You know what I hear Danny? Nothing. No footsteps up the stairs, no jet out of the window, no clickeyty-click of the little spiders. Do you know why I can't hear those things Danny? Because right now, the Pre-Cogs can't see a thing.
(Shoots Danny in the chest as he slowley crumples to the floor, Burgess than comes over to Danny and shoots him in the head) (imdb.com)

Rufus Riley: (seeing Agatha's visions appear) Wow. She works. (imdb.com)

Dr. Iris Hineman: Find the minority report.
John Anderton: How do I even know which one has it?
Dr. Iris Hineman: It's always in the more gifted of the three.
John Anderton: Which one is it?
Dr. Iris Hineman: The female. (imdb.com)

(viewing the crime scene of Leo Crow's murder)
Danny Witwer: I worked homicide before federal. This is what we call an orgy of evidence. You know how many orgies I had as a homicide cop?
Officer Fletcher: How many?
Danny Witwer: None.
(crouches down and looks back up)
Danny Witwer: This was all arranged. (imdb.com)

(while he's kicking Leo on the floor)
John Anderton: Is he alive? He's alive. Where've you got him? Is he all right?
(shouting)
John Anderton: Tell me, you f**k, where is he? (imdb.com)

Danny Witwer: (getting into the elevator) You're in a lot of trouble, John.
John Anderton: You set me up.
Danny Witwer: I'll write the paranoia off to the whiff you've been doping on...
(John slams him against the elevator wall and draws his gun, then presses it to Witwer's throat)
John Anderton: Well, I...
Danny Witwer: Easy. Easy. It seems I found a flaw.
(He pulls from his pocket and holds up the inhalant device)
John Anderton: What are you gonna do?
Danny Witwer: Possession alone will cost you six months, not to mention your badge. I guess we won't be working together after all. Now, put the gun down, John. I don't hear a red ball.
Danny Witwer: (in a deadly tone) Now, put the gun down, John. I don't hear a red ball.
(Then, the red ball alarm sounds, and Anderton backs out of the elevator and turns to run) (imdb.com)

Dr. Solomon: Now, you understand I can't just give you new irises. Because if I do, the retinal scans will read the scar tissue, alarms will go off, and large men with guns will appear. (imdb.com)

Wally the Caretaker: I like you chief, you've always been nice to me. I'll give you two minutes before I hit the alarm. (imdb.com)

Danny Witwer: What does he want with a Pre-Cog?
Wally the Caretaker: (hysterical) What do you think? So he can kill whoever he wants without anyone knowing about it! (imdb.com)

(last lines)
John Anderton: (voiceover) In 2054, the six-year Precrime experiment was abandoned. All prisoners were unconditionally pardoned and released, though police departments kept watch on many of them for years to come. Agatha and the twins were transferred to an undisclosed location, a place where they could find relief from their gifts. A place where they could live out their lives in peace. (imdb.com)

John Anderton: Why should I trust you?
Dr. Iris Hineman: You shouldn't. You shouldn't trust anyone. Certainly not the Attorney General who just wants it all for himself, and not the young Federal agent, who wants your job. Not even the old man who just wants to hold on to what he created. Don't trust anyone. Just find the Minority Report. (imdb.com)

John Anderton: I'm not being set up. I really am going to kill this man. (imdb.com)

(screams)
John Anderton: DO I EVEN HAVE ONE?
(moment's silence)
John Anderton: (softly) Do I have one?
Agatha: (whispers) No. (imdb.com)

Agatha: Dr. Hineman once said, "The dead don't die. They look on and help." Remember that, John.
John Anderton: Agatha...
Agatha: Sean... He's on the beach now, a toe in the water. He's asking you to come in with him. He's been racing his mother up and down the sand. There's so much love in this house. He's ten years old. He's surrounded by animals. He wants to be a vet. You keep a rabbit for him, a bird and a fox. He's in high school. He likes to run, like his father. He runs the two-mile and the long relay. He's 23. He's at a university. He makes love to a pretty girl named Claire. He asks her to be his wife. He calls here and tells Lara, who cries. He still runs. Across the university and in the stadium, where John watches. Oh God, he's running so fast, just like his daddy. He sees his daddy. He wants to run to him. But he's only six years old, and he can't do it. And the other men are so fast. There was so much love in this house.
John Anderton: (sobbing) I want him back so bad.
Agatha: So did she. Can't you see? She just wanted her little girl back. But it was too late. Her little girl was already gone.
John Anderton: She's still alive.
Agatha: She didn't die, but she's not alive.
John Anderton: Agatha, just tell me, who killed your mother? Who killed Anne Lively?
Agatha: (whispering) I'm sorry John, but you're gonna have to run again.
John Anderton: What?
Agatha: (screaming) RUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN! (imdb.com)

Lara Anderton: (starts fixing Lamar's bow tie)

Dr. Iris Hineman: It's funny how all living organisms are alike...
(she starts crushing a mutated plant)

Dr. Iris Hineman: (the plant scars her palm) Its own survival. (imdb.com)

Agatha: Murder.
(imdb.com)

John Anderton: Why should I trust you?

Pre-Crime Public Service Announcer: Imagine, a world with out, murder. 6 years ago, the homicidal rates had reached epidemic proportions. It seemed that only a miracle could stop the blood shed, but instead of 1 miracle, we were given 3, the precognitives. Within 3 months of the precrime program, the homicidal rates in the District of Columbia had reduced 90 percent.

Lamar Burgess: (as he is given a revolver) Revolvers, like this one, were given to the generals at the end of the civil war by their troops. The chambers were loaded with 5 gold plated bullets to symbolize the end of the destruction and death that set the country apart for 5 years. Now, with Precrime going national, I think we all can look towards a time where none of us will have to discharge another firearm ever again.
(the people Applaude him)
Lamar Burgess: Oh, enjoy yourselves, enjoy yourselves. That's an order.
(imdb.com)
