“My mind is like a racing engine, tearing itself to pieces because it is not connected up with the work for which it was built. Life is commonplace; the papers are sterile; audacity and romance seem to have passed forever from the criminal world. Can you ask me, then, whether I am ready to look into any new problem, however trivial it may prove?”
Dr. Mendelez : Bet you’ve seen many of these. I remember my first. Kept thinking, “It doesn’t get any better than this.” And for you, I’m afraid, that’s literally true. You’re a nice kid, and you’re obviously very smart, but you don’t belong here. So, as long as you’re part of my team, this is all you’re ever going to be doing… suction.
Shaun : I saw a lot of surgeons in medical school. You’re much better than them. I have a lot to learn from you… You’re very arrogant. Do you think that helps you be a good surgeon? Does it hurt you as a person? Is it worth it?

Krista : What is it about society that disappoints you so much?
Elliot : Oh, I don’t know. Is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man, even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it’s that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit. The world itself’s just one big hoax. Spamming with our running commentary of bullshit masquerading as insight, our social media faking as intimacy. Or is it that we voted for this? Not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money. I’m not saying anything new. We all know why we do this, not because Hunger Games books makes us happy but because we want to be sedated. Because it’s painful not to pretend, because we’re cowards. F.ck society.
Krista : [normal voice] Elliot. You’re not saying anything. What’s wrong?
Elliot : Nothing.

Elliot : You’re not real.
Mr. Robot : What? You are? [scoffs] Is any of it real? I mean, look at this. Look at it! A world built on fantasy! Synthetic emotions in the form of pills, psychological warfare in the form of advertising, mind-altering chemicals in the form of food, brainwashing seminars in the form of media, controlled isolated bubbles in the form of social networks. Real? You want to talk about reality? We haven’t lived in anything remotely close to it since the turn of the century. We turned it off, took out the batteries, snacked on a bag of GMOs while we tossed the remnants in the ever-expanding dumpster of the human condition. We live in branded houses trademarked by corporations built on bipolar numbers jumping up and down on digital displays, hypnotizing us into the biggest slumber mankind has ever seen. You have to dig pretty deep, kiddo, before you can find anything real. We live in a kingdom of bullshit, a kingdom you’ve lived in for far too long. So don’t tell me about not being real. I’m no less real than the f.cking beef patty in your… As far as you’re concerned, Elliot, I am very real.
Çocukluğumda ilk gördüğüm andan itibaren hayranı olduğum, resimlerini çizdiğim araba ben ona gidemeden ayağıma geldi sağolsun. Hayatta yapılacaklar listemden bir kalemi daha işaretlemiş oldum. Bir sonraki ehliyeti yeniledikten sonra kendisini kiralamak olacak 🙂
Riggs : You know, it’s not getting any easier. You know, time’s not helping.
Dr.Cahill : Why would it?
Riggs : ‘Cause everybody says that it does.
Dr.Cahill : People who say that don’t understand. Time is cruel. It punishes. I mean, we sentence people to time. I don’t know that it makes it any easier.
Riggs : Then what am I doing here?
Dr.Cahill : You’re looking for a way to make it hurt a little less.
