MAUDE, Harold & Maude (1971)
Our bodies break down, sometimes when we're ninety, sometimes before we're even born. But it always happens and there's never any dignity in it!
DR. GREGORY HOUSE, House M.D., "Pilot" (2004)
We know more about the human body now than at any other point in our history. But the miracle of life itself - why people live and die, why they hurt or get hurt - is still a mystery.
DR. MIRANDA BAILEY, Grey's Anatomy, "Lay Your Hands on Me" (2008)
The body thrives when the heart has a mission.
SAMUEL SULLIVAN, Heroes, "Chapter Five 'Tabula Rasa'" (2009)
The body cannot live without the mind.
MORPHEUS, The Matrix (1999)
So this is what a human body feels like. Hey, where's my antenna? Oh, here it is. It just moved. But I'm not getting any reception. Maybe if I wiggle it a little...
BENDER, Futurama, "Anthology of Interest II" (2002)
Our bodies are prisons for our souls. Our skin and blood, the iron bars of confinement. But fear not. All flesh decays. Death turns all to ash. And thus, death frees every soul.
GRAND INQUISITOR SILECIO, The Fountain (2006)
