QUOTES FROM Tobin Bell CHARACTERS

John/Jigsaw
Now that's the Eric Matthews they gave medals to.
John/Jigsaw
Don't forget the rules.
John/Jigsaw
Yes officer, I'm sick. Sick from the disease eating away at me from the inside, sick of people who don't appreciate their blessing, sick of those who scoff at the suffering of others. I'm sick of it all!
John/Jigsaw
Rise and shine, Adam. You're probably wondering where you are. I'll tell you where you might be. You might be in the room that you die in. Up until now, you've simply sat in the shadows watching others live out their lives. But what do voyeurs see when they look into the mirror? Now I see you as a strange mix of someone angry, yet apathetic. But mostly just pathetic. So are you going to watch yourself die here today, Adam, or do something about it?
Adam
I don't get it.
John/Jigsaw
I want to play a game.
John/Jigsaw
Those who don't appreciate life do not deserve life
John/Jigsaw

John/Jigsaw
Oh, yes, there will be blood.
John/Jigsaw
Most people are so ungrateful to be alive, but not you, not any more...
John/Jigsaw
Live or die, make your choice.
John/Jigsaw
Hello, Mr. Hindle. Or as they called you around the hospital: Zepp. I want you to make a choice. There's a slow-acting poison coursing through your system, which only I have the antidote for. Will you murder a mother and her child to save yourself? Listen carefully, if you will. There are rules.
John/Jigsaw
GAME OVER!
John/Jigsaw
Most people are so ungrateful to be alive, but not you, not any more...

If you're good at anticipating the human mind... it leaves nothing to chance.
Jigsaw/John

Jigsaw/John
You don't want to do that.
Cecil
The fuck's your problem?
Jigsaw/John
You're my problem... and you're becoming everybody else's too.
Jigsaw/John
By hearing this tape, some may assume that this is over. But I am still among you.
Jigsaw/John
You think it is over just because I'm dead? It's not over... the games have just begun.
Dr. Lynn Denlon
Alright John, I need you to keep your head to the side and keep still. What's going on is that your brain is pushing against your skull; I'm going to try to relieve the pressure by cutting away a piece of your skull. It should help you with your headaches, and drastically improve your motor skills. Do you understand?
Dr. Lynn Denlon
[before the surgery] Alright, John, I need you to keep your head to the side and keep still. What's going on here is your brain is pushing against your skull. I'm going to try and relieve the pressure by cutting away a little bit of your skull. It should help you with your headaches and drastically improve your motor skills. Do you understand?
Jigsaw
All too well.
John/Jigsaw
It'll be like finding a needle in a haystack... let the game begin.
John/Jigsaw
It will be like finding a needle in a haystack. [laughs]
John/Jigsaw
Game Over.

Hello Amanda. You don't know me, but I know you. I want to play a game. Here's what happens if you lose. The device you are wearing is hooked into your upper and lower jaw. When the timer in the back goes off, your mouth will be permanently ripped open. Think of it like a reverse bear trap. Here, I'll show you. There is only one key to open the device. It's in the stomach of your dead cellmate. Look around Amanda. Know that I'm not lying. Better hurry up. Live or die, make your choice

John/Jigsaw
Can you imagine what it feels like to have someone sit you down and tell you that you're dying? The gravity of that, hmm? Then the clock's ticking for you. In a split second your awe is cracked open. You look at things differently - smell things differently. You savor everything be it a glass of water or a walk in the park. But most people have the luxury of not knowing when that clock's going to go off. And the irony of it is that that keeps them from really living their life. It keeps them drinking that glass of water but never really tasting it.
John/Jigsaw
Those who do not appreciate life do not deserve life.

(to Amanda) Some people are so ungrateful to be alive, but not you... not anymore.
John/Jigsaw
[to Amanda] Some people are so ungrateful to be alive, but not you... not anymore.
Jigsaw
If you make it through this, Lynn, you're going to thank me one day just as Amanda did.
Jigsaw
Matrimony has always fascinated me. Husbands barely able to look at their wives, wives on their backs in hotel rooms with perfect strangers; able to bear children to bear children only to neglect them; until death do us part indeed.

Dr. Lynn Denlon
I don't know what you think you know, but my marriage has survived more suffering than someone like you could ever grasp.
Jigsaw
Suffering? You haven't seen anything yet.
Jigsaw
Death is a surprise party.
Dr. Lynn Denlon
What do you want?
Jigsaw
I wanna play a game.
Jigsaw/John
You think it's the living who have ultimate judgment over you, because the dead will have no claim over your soul. But you may be mistaken.
