Quotes from the film

This page contains many major plot spoilers so if you have not watched the film, you may want to stop reading now!
.  "First, there was darkness. Then came the strangers. They were a race as old as time itself. They had mastered the ultimate technology, the ability to alter physical reality by will alone. They called this ability 'tuning'. But they were dying, their civilisation was in decline. And so they abandoned their world, seeking a cure for their own mortality. Their endless journey brought them to a small blue world in the farthest corner of the galaxy, our world. Here, they thought they had finally found what they had been searching for. My name is Daniel Paul Shreber. I am just a man. I help the strangers conduct their experiments. I have betrayed my own kind."
.  "You're confused, aren't you? Frightened. It's all right, I can help you." (Dr Shreber)
"Who is this?" (John)
"I am a doctor. Now you must listen to me. You have lost your memory. There was an experiment. Something went wrong. Your memory was erased. Do you understand me?" (Dr Shreber)
"No I don't understand! What the hell is going on here?" (John)
"Just listen. There are people coming for you even as we speak. You must not let them find you. (John stares at something off screen, horrified and drops the phone.) You must leave now! Hello? Are you there?" (Dr Shreber)
.  "A touch of unhappy childhood, a dash of teenage rebellion, and last but not least, a tragic death in the family." (making memories)
.  "Why does Murdoch not sleep during the 'tuning' as the others do?" (Stranger)
"I don't know. Maybe he stepped up on the evolutionary ladder. A freak of nature, he's adapting to survive. What'd you expect? Weren't you looking for the human soul? That's the purpose of your little zoo, isn't it? That's why you keep changing people and everything around every night. Maybe you have finally found what you were looking for."
.  "I call them the Strangers. They've abducted us and brought us here. This city, everyone in it, is there experiment. It is what makes them match our memories. They're trying to devine what makes us unique. One day, a man might be an inspector. The next, someone entirely different. When they want to study a murderer for instance, they simply implant one of their citizens with a new personality, arrange a family for him, friends, an entire history, even a lost wallet. Then, they observe the results. Will a man given the history of a killer continue in that vein or are we in fact more than the mere sum of our memories? It is our capacity for individuality, our souls that make us different from them. They think they can find the human soul if they understand how our memories work. All they have is a collective memory. They share one group mind."
