Here is the thing about the future. Every time you look at it, it changes, because you looked at it, and that changes everything else.

  • Cris Johnson Here is the thing about the future. Every time you look at, it changes, because you looked at it, and that changes everything else.
  • Cris Johnson There’s an Italian painter, named Carlotti, and he uh, ahem, defined beauty. He said it was the summation of the parts working together in such a way that nothing needed to be added, taken away or altered, and that’s you. You’re beautiful. Liz Wow.
  • Cris Johnson I’ve seen every possible ending. None of them are good for you.
  • Cris Johnson You don’t believe in destiny? Liz Well, even if it does exist, I don’t think I want to know. I mean, if every move we make is preordained, then what is the point of that? I mean, life is supposed to be a surprise.[beat] Liz Isn’t it? Cris Johnson It would be nice.
  • Callie Ferris Tell me what just happened. What did you see? Cris Johnson If I do what you want, you’ll keep me in this chair forever.
  • Liz You can see things before they happen? Cris Johnson Only my future… except with you. I saw far beyond anything I’d ever seen before. You need to get away from here.
  • Cris Johnson [has a premonition of them sharing a kiss]  Wow. That was incredible. Liz What was?Cris Johnson This.[kisses her] 
  • Cris Johnson It may be a week, or a month, but if you can wait, I will find you.
  • Cris Johnson Every once in a while what we think is magic is the real deal hiding behind a $50.00 trick, because the alternative is impossible for others to live with.
  • Cris Johnson Did you hear about the zen monk who ordered a hot dog? He said he had one with everything
  • Cris Johnson I have a small magic act back in Vegas. The Frank Cadillac Show. Liz I thought your name was Cris. Cris Johnson It is. Frank Cadillac is my stage name. Liz How’d you come up with that? Cris Johnson I picked two things I really like and put them together. Frankenstein and Cadillacs.
  • Cris Johnson [Chris knows he’s about to be punched by Liz’s stalker. Gritting his teeth]  Incoming.[gets punched in the face] 
  • Cris Johnson I like rain. Liz I like rain, too.
  • Liz I don’t want you to die. Cris Johnson It happened. It just hasn’t happened yet.
  • Cris Johnson You have one way out of this.[Mr. Smith holds up the detonator; Ferris shoots it out of his hand] Cris Johnson That wasn’t it.
  • [last lines] Callie Ferris Ready? Cris Johnson Yeah.
  • Callie Ferris Don’t do it. Cris Johnson I already have.
  • Cris Johnson It helps if you don’t speak right now.
  • Callie Ferris Let’s talk about something hard. A stolen nuclear munition is being smuggled into the United States, or may, in fact, already be here. I want you to look ahead and tell me where it’s going to be deployed.Cris Johnson Uh… I think you’ve got the wrong guy. It’s a magic act.Callie Ferris You going to stick with that story? Because millions of lives are at risk and you could, maybe, prevent a major catastrophe. On a practical note, we’re standing in front of a stolen vehicle and you’re wanted for assault involving a weapon at the casino.Cris Johnson All right, that was an accident. He had a gun. He was going to shoot two people.Callie Ferris Yeah? How’d you know that? No good deed goes unpunished, does it? I can fix your legal problems, buddy, but you’ve got to step up. Otherwise, your next magic show is going to be at Folsom State Prison.Cris Johnson It’s ironic, but people like you who try to help have been torturing me, in the full sense of the word, since I was three years old. What did they call it? Oh, yeah. Observed play therapy. Featuring, the marathon 36-hour, can-you-guess-the-next-flash-card game. So, please, leave me alone and let me live some semblance of a normal life.Callie Ferris I’d love to indulge your feelings, but I am dealing with a slightly larger picture right now. Now you can exercise your responsibility to help your fellow man or I will exercise that responsibility for you.
  • Cris Johnson [to agent who keeps interrupting him while he’s trying to brief the team]  if you will SHUT UP now, and do EXACTLY what I tell you to do, I’ll keep you alive.
