chess

No one ever won a chess game by betting on each move. Sometimes you have to move backward to get a step forward.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am still a victim of chess. It has all the beauty of art -- and much more. It cannot be commercialized. Chess is much purer than art in its social position.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Women, by their nature, are not exceptional chess players: they are not great fighters.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One cannot play chess if one becomes aware of the pieces as living souls and of the fact that the Whites and the Blacks have more in common with each other than with the players. Suddenly one loses all interest in who will be champion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Industry executives and analysts often mistakenly talk about strategy as if it were some kind of chess match. But in chess, you have just two opponents, each with identical resources, and with luck playing a minimal role. The real world is much more like a poker game, with multiple players trying to make the best of whatever hand fortune has dealt them. In our industry, Bill Gates owns the table until someone proves otherwise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Bruce Wayne: "We're 5 little items of an everyday sort. You'll find us all in a tennis court". In... A-E-I-O-U. Vowels.
Alfred Pennyworth: Not entirely unclever, sir, but what do a clock, a match, chess pawns, and vowels have in common? What do these riddles mean?
Bruce Wayne: Every riddle has a number in the question and they arrived at this order: 13, 1, 8, and 5.
Alfred Pennyworth: 13, 1, 8, and 5. What do they mean?
Bruce Wayne: Perhaps letters of the alphabet?
Alfred Pennyworth: Of course, 13 is M.
Bruce Wayne: 1 would be A, 8 would be H, and 5 would be E.
Alfred Pennyworth: M-A-H-E.
Bruce Wayne: Perhaps 1 and 8 are 18.
Alfred Pennyworth: 18 is R. M-R-E.
Bruce Wayne: How about Mr. E.?
Alfred Pennyworth: Mystery.
Bruce Wayne: And another name for mystery?
Alfred Pennyworth: Enigma.
Bruce Wayne: Mr. E. Nygma. Edward Nygma. Stickley's suicide was obviously a computer-generated forgery.
Alfred Pennyworth: You really are quite bright, despite what people say.More [03/19/2007 12:03:00]
Tom Ripley: First of all I know there's something. That evening when we played chess for instance it was obvious.
Dickie Greenleaf: What evening?
Tom Ripley: Oh sure, no, no, it's too dangerous for you to take on. Oh, no, no, we're brothers. Hey. And then you do this sordid thing with Marge. Fucking her on the boat so we all have to listen. Which was excruciating! And you follow your cock around and now you're getting married! I'm bewildered, forgive me. You're lying to Marge and then you're getting married to her. You're knocking up Silvana. You're ruining everybody. You wanna play the sax, you wanna play the drums. What is it, Dickie? What do you actually want?
Dickie Greenleaf: Who are you? Huh? Some third class loser? Who are you? Who are you to say anything to me? Who are you to tell me anything? Actually I really, really don't want to be on this boat with you. I can't move without you moving. Gives me the creeps. You give me the creeps!More [06/19/2007 12:06:00]
[on his past relationship with Caitlin]
Dante Hicks: She was supposed to meet Brad Michaelson in a dark bedroom. She picked the wrong one. She didn't even know I was at the party.
Randal Graves: Oh my God.
Dante Hicks: Great story, huh?
Randal Graves: That girl was vile to you.
Dante Hicks: Interesting post script to that story - you know who wound up with Brad in that dark bedroom?
Randal Graves: Your mother?
Dante Hicks: Alan Harris.
Randal Graves: Chess team Alan Harris?
Dante Hicks: The two moved to Idaho shortly after graduation. They raise sheep.
Randal Graves: That's frightening.
Dante Hicks: Takes different strokes to move the world.
Randal Graves: In light of this, I don't see how you can romanticize your relationship with Caitlin. She broke your heart and inadvertently drove men to deviant lifestyles.More [07/24/2007 12:07:00]

Sam: Chess ain't fun, boy, how many times do I gotta tell you that? Don't you listen to a word I say?
Fresh: Maybe if I seen you more...
Sam: Well you don't, so you be well served to retain some of the knowledge I'm imparting to you, rather than giving me all this hard ass street attitude bullshit.More [11/30/2007 12:11:00]
Captain Ramius: Once more, we play our dangerous game, a game of chess against our old adversary - The American Navy.

Waverly (Age 6-9): I've decided to play chess again.
Lindo Jong: You think it is so easy. One day quit, next day play. Everything for you is this way: so smart, so easy, so fast. Not so easy anymore.
Waverly Jong: What she said, it was like a curse. This power I had, this belief in myself, I could actually feel it draining away. I could feel myself becoming ordinary. All the secrets I once saw, I couldn't see them anymore. All I could see was, were my mistakes, my weaknesses. The best part of me just disappeared. But I can't put it all on my mother. I did it to myself. I never played chess again.More [05/15/2008 12:05:00]

Number 6:
[referring to the chess game] Why do you use people?



Chessmaster:
Some psychiatrists say it satisfies the desire for power. 'the only opportunity one gets here.



Number 6:
That depends what side you're on.



Chessmaster:
[quickly] I'm on my side.



Number 6:
[quickly] Aren't we all.

You must be new here. In time, most of us join the enemy - against ourselves.

Roy:
[grabbing Sebastian] If we don't find help soon, Pris hasn't got long to live. We can't allow that.


[Roy goes to the chess board, studying the game in progress]



Roy:
Is he good?



J.F. Sebastian:
Who?



Roy:
Your opponent.



J.F. Sebastian:
Oh, Dr. Tyrell? I've only beaten him once in chess. He's a genius! He designed you.



Roy:
Maybe he could help.



J.F. Sebastian:
I'd be happy to mention it to him.



Roy:
[smiles and puts his hand on Sebastian's shoulder] Better if I talk to him in person. But I understand he's a sort of hard man to get to.


[Pris wraps her legs and arms around Sebastian]



J.F. Sebastian:
Yes.



Roy:
Will you help us?



J.F. Sebastian:
I can't.



Pris:

Kevin Flynn:
Hey, hey, hey, it's the big Master Control Program everybody's talking about.



Master Control Program:
[calmly] Sit right there; make yourself comfortable. Remember the time we used to spend playing chess together?



Master Control Program:
[Flynn continues typing] That isn't going to do you any good, Flynn.


[Flynn launches a compute-intensive program]



Master Control Program:
I'm afraid... stop, please. You realize I cannot allow this!



Kevin Flynn:
How are you going to run the universe if you can't answer a few unsolvable problems? Come on, big fella, let's see what you got.



Master Control Program:
I'd like to go against you and see what your made of.

You know, you look nothing like your pictures.



Master Control Program:
I'm warning you. You're entering a big error, Flynn.

Dr. Forrester:
This is our invention, Joel. Dr. Clayton Forrester and TV's Frank will now fulfill our destiny. The teasing jibes of classmates. The book-dumping after typing class. The shameful expulsion from Chess Club! These are only a...



TV's Frank:
Don't forget all the power sit-ups they made you do.



Dr. Forrester:
Yes, exactly. They will bow down be...



TV's Frank:
The revulsion, scorn, and rejection of all the pretty girls?



Dr. Forrester:
Yes, exactly. They shall pay for...



TV's Frank:
Sophomore year and the shameful shower incident?



Dr. Forrester:
Uh yes, thank you, Frank. The point is that we shall cleave into this puny planet. We will crack the Earth as though it were a China cup, sending entire continents plummeting into the unforgiving sea! Prepare yoursel...



Joel:
Hey, may I ask a stupid question? Why are you guys doing this?



Tom Servo:
Yeah, what do you get out of it?



TV's Frank:
Well, you know, it's kind of a weird, you know, sort of umm...”Omega Man" kind of thing?



Dr. Forrester:
No, no, it's more of a... duh... why don't you go on with your invention, Joel?

TV's Frank:
That's right. You know all the fads with the young people today? You know the kids today, with their loud music, hula hoops, fax machines... But the biggest fad these days: karaoke! Wew! Yuk-e-yeeeewh! What we've done is we've invented a karaoke machine that exclusively plays public domain songs. That's right, that means you can sing into your karaoke machine, have as much fun as you want, and not pay one cent in artist royalties.



Dr. Forrester:
That's right, Frank. Now, what happens when you go into your favorite karaoke bar and you want to hear "I Want to Know What Love Is" by Foreigner?



TV's Frank:
People vomit?



Dr. Forrester:
No... Lou Gramm, songwriter and Chess King spokesmodel gets a big fat royalty check! And that means lots of money. So, Joel, we've loaded our machine only with public domain songs. All free of copyright, all owned by you, the people.



TV's Frank:
That's right, you want to hit the roll there, Jerry?



Dr. Forrester:
You get the "Battle Hymn of the Republic"...



TV's Frank:
The immortal "baa baa black sheep"...



Dr. Forrester:
The turgid and bittersweet "Gregorian Chant #5"...



TV's Frank:
The impish "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"...



Dr. Forrester:
Mozart's "The Magic Flute," and there's so much more! But your experiment this week, Joel, is called Pod People. It has nothing to do with pods. It has nothing to do with people. It has everything to do with hurting! And we're going to sing you into it with our new Public Domain Karaoke Machine. Hit it, Frank.



Dr. Forrester:
Aaaaaaaaaaveeeeeeeee Maaaaaariiiiiiaaaaaaa!



TV's Frank:
Aaaaaaaaaaveeeeeeeee Maaaaaariiiiiiaaaaaaa!

Pee-Wee:
[shouting] All I wanted was a measly sandwich. I very nicely explained that I was starving. I'm starving. Please.



Mr. Ryan:
[Angrily] Sorry, ladies, I guess you'll just have to wait. You remember, nobody is as important in this community as Pee-Wee Herman. All you other shoppers will just have to play second fiddle to Pee-Wee. I guess that's just the way things are around here. My whole purpose in life is to serve Pee-Wee Herman. Everything else comes second. Here's your sandwich. Is there anything else I can do for you, Pee-Wee?



Pee-Wee:
Well, I would like a pickle if it's not too much trouble.



Mr. Ryan:
Oh, no trouble at all, Pee-Wee. Sorry, Otis. Sorry, Deke.

Martin:
All right, what would you do?

I want to know how much it's worth.

Bruce Pandolfini:
Do you want 10?

Bruce Pandolfini:
Do you want 20?
