Cold Mountain (2003)
Jude Law: Inman
Inman : You are all that keeps me from sliding into some dark place.
Ada : But how did I keep you? We barely knew each other. A few moments.
Inman : A thousand moments. They're like a bag of tiny diamonds glittering in a black heart. Don't matter if they're real or things I made up. The shape of your neck, that's real. You were always carrying a tray.
Ada : You wouldn't come inside.
Inman : I wouldn't come inside.
Ada : I had to carry a tray to come out and see you.
Inman : The way you felt when I pulled you to me. That kiss- which I kissed again everyday of my walking.
Ada : Everyday of my waiting...
Inman : [to Ada] If you could see my inside, or whatever you want to name it; my spirit, that's what I fear. I think I'm ruined. They kept trying to put me in the ground but I wasn't ready. But if I had... if I had goodness, I lost it. If I had anything tender in me, I shot it dead! How could I write to you after what I'd done? What I'd seen?
Inman : Ada, I wanna marry you. If you'll have me.
Ada : Isn't there some religion where you just say I marry you, three times, and then you're man and wife?
Inman : I marry you, I marry you, I marry you.
Inman : Why is that funny?
Ada : No, I think it's I divorce you three times and then you're not married anymore.
Inman : I can wait for ya.
Ada : Oh, Inman, I marry you, I marry you, I marry you, I marry you, I marry you.
[Ada and Inman kiss]
Ada : I have so... I have so many buttons, is that alright? Will you turn your back?
[Inman turns his back but then he turns back around]
Inman : Nope. No, I will not.
Inman : I imagine God is weary of being called down on both sides of an argument.
Blind Man : Gettin' better, soldier?
Inman : Seems that way.
Blind Man : I wouldn't hurry. The war's almost done.Don't need your help to lose it.
Inman : Been meanin' to ask you, where'd you take your wound?
Blind Man : Oh, before I was born. Never set eyes on a thing in this world. Not a tree, a gun, or a woman. Put my hand on all three, though.
Inman : She's the place I'm heading. But I hardly know her. I just can't seem to get back to her.
Inman : I came back for you.
Inman : I ain't getting shot again for some cause I don't believe in.
Inman : Come out of there.
Bosie : No, sir. Here's fine.
Inman : I'll just have to shoot the horse from under you.
Bosie : Shoot her. She's not mine. You riding Mr. Teague's animal?
Inman : I am.
Bosie : He dead?
Inman : I hope so. Look, how old are you? Give me your gun and ride home, I'm done fighting. I'm sick of it.
Bosie : I give you my gun and you'll shoot me dead.
Inman : I will not shoot you, but nor am I walking down that mountain looking over my shoulder for you.
Bosie : That's what you call a conundrum. I tell you what I've got on my side.
Inman : What have you got on your side?
Bosie : The confidence of youth.
Inman : I'm wetter than a fish.
Inman : [in bed with Sara] Thing is, I love someone. I love someone very much.
Inman : I've had to put myself in the way of people's kindness.
Inman : Move away from the baby!
Bardolph : Don't shoot.
Inman : Take off your boots. Take off your pants and your shirt.
[Bardolph takes off his boots, pants, and shirt]
Bardolph : Don't shoot me, please. We're starving. We haven't eaten.
Inman : You'd better get running before you catch your death of cold.
Bardolph : Thanks, thank you. I will.
[Bardolph starts to run, and then Sara shoots him]
