Stardust Quotes

  • Humphrey: You just bought yourself a death wish.


  • Narrator: They ruled for 80 years. But no man can live forever, except he who possesses the heart of a star, and Yvaine had given hers to Tristan completely. When their children and grandchildren were grown, it was time to light the Babylon Candle. And they still live happily ever after.


  • Yvaine: You've got a Babylon candle.
    Tristan: Yeah, I have a bubbling candle.
    Yvaine: A *Babylon* candle.
    Tristan: That's what I said.
    Yvaine: You said "bubbling".
    Yvaine: You said 'bubbling'.


  • Tristan: Did you really mean what you said in the caravan?
    Yvaine: What I...? But... You were a mouse! You were a mouse... you wanted cheese! You didn't... I asked you to give me a sign!
    Tristan: And risk you being too embarrassed to keep saying such lovely things?


  • Narrator: A philosopher once asked, "Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?" Pointless, really... "Do the stars gaze back?" Now *that's* a question.

  • Yvaine: You know when I said I knew little about love? Well that wasn't true. I know a lot about love. I've seen it. I've seen centuries and centuries of it. And it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain and lies. Hate. Made me want to turn away and never look down again. But to see the way that mankind loves. I mean, you can search the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So, yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can also be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and, well, strangely easy to mistaken for loathing. And, what I'm trying to say, Tristan, is I think I love you! My heart, it feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it doesn't belong to me anymore. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I's wish for nothing in exchange. No gifts, no goods, no demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing that you love me, too. Just your heart in exchange for mine.


  • Mormo: You're very close. She's in the market town. One mile from the gap in the wall.
    Lamia: You speak as if this is good news. Do I have to remind you that Wall is not part of our universe? If she crosses that threshold into the human realm, our star becomes nothing more than a pitted lump of metallic rock!
    Empusa: Then I suggest you hurry up!


  • Yvaine: Would I be correct in thinking that you can neither see nor hear me? Then I'd like to tell you that you smell of pee. You look like the wrong end of a dog. And I swear if I don't get my Tristan back as he was, I'll be your personal poltergeist!


  • Ditchwater Sal: That's my flower! Eighteen years I've been looking for that! Give it to me now!
    Yvaine: How dare you! That was a gift from his mother!


  • Tristan: What the hell did you do?
    Yvaine: What did I do? What did you do?! "Think of home!" That was a great plan! You thought of your home and I thought of mine and now we're halfway between the two!
    Yvaine: What did I do? What did you do?! 'Think of home!' That was a great plan! You thought of your home and I thought of mine and now we're halfway between the two!


  • Lamia: Where are the Babylon candles?
    Mormo: You used the last one, Lamia, 200 years ago. Do you not recall?
    Empusa: Perhaps we can obtain another?
    Lamia: Has your mind become as decrepit as your face, Empusa? You speak as if such things are freely available.
    Empusa: I know sister, I merely thought--
    Lamia: You'd have us hunting for a Babylon candle while some other witch finds our star. Fool! There's no time to waste. If we must retrieve it on foot, then we shall. Mormo, we need information.


  • Lamia: Limbus grass! You dear to steal truth from my lips by feeding me limbus grass?! Do you have any idea what a big mistake you've made, Ditchwater Sal?
    Ditchwater Sal: How do you know my-- Who are you?
    Lamia: Look again. [Lamia's eyes distorts]


  • Lamia: What it to be prince charming? Frog or tadpole?


  • Lamia: The golden burning heart of a star at peace is so much better than your frighten little heart. Even so, better than no heart at all!


  • Tristan: Oh thank you. That's so sweet. My name's Tristan. What's your?
    Girl Bernard: [low manly voice] Bernard.


  • Lamia: Seek all you like. You shall not see the star, touch it, smell, or hear it. You will not perceive her even if she stands before you.


  • Narrator: A philosopher once asked, "Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?" Pointless, really... "Do the stars gaze back?" Now *that's* a question.


  • Yvaine: What do stars do? They shine.
