Quotes from the film
.  "The most unremarkable of events: Jerome Morrow, navigator first class, is about to embark on a one-year manned mission to Titan, 14th moon of Saturn. A highly prestigious assignment, although for Jerome, selection was virtually guaranteed at birth. He's blessed with all the gifts required for such an undertaking: a genetic quotient second to none. No, there is truly nothing remarkable about the progress of Jerome Morrow... except that I am not Jerome Morrow."
.  "I belong to a new underclass, no longer determined by social status or the colour of your skin. We now have discrimination down to a science."
.  "They used to say that a child conceived in love has a greater chance of happiness. They don't say that anymore. I'll never understand what possessed my mother to put her faith in God's hands rather than those of her local geneticist. Ten fingers, ten toes, that's all that used to matter, but not now. Now, only seconds old, the exact time and cause of my death was already known." (Vincent)
"Heart disorder: 99% probability, early fatal potential, life expectancy: 30.2 years." (midwife)
.  "From an early age, I came to think of myself as others thought of me: chronically ill. Every skinned knee and runny nose was treated as if it were life-threatening."
.  "Maybe it was a love of the planets, maybe it was just my growing dislike for this one, but for as long as I can remember, I have dreamt of going to space. My goals didn't change a lot in the intervening years, much to my parents's dismay."
.  "You have to be realistic, with a heart condition like yours..." (Vincent's mother)
"Mom, there's a chance there's nothing even wrong with my heart." (Vincent)
"One chance in a hundred!" (Vincent's father)
"Well I'll take it all right?" (Vincent)
"The trouble is that they won't." (mother)
"Listen for God's sake, you gotta understand something, the only way that you'll see the inside of a spaceship is if you're cleaning it." (father)
.  "My father was right. It did not matter how much I lied on my resume. My real resume was in my cells. Why should anybody invest all that money to train me when there were a thousand other applicants with a far cleaner profile? Of course, it's illegal to discriminate, 'genoism' it's called. But no one takes the law seriously. If you refuse to disclose, they can always take a sample from a door handle or a handshake, even the saliva on your application form. If in doubt, a legal drug test can just as easily become an illegal peek at your future in the company."
.  "For all my brave talk, I knew it was just that. No matter how much I trained or how much I studied, the best test score in the world wasn't gonna matter unless it had the blood test to go with it. I made up my mind to resort to more extreme measures."
.  "For the genetically superior, success is easier to attain but is by no mean guaranteed. After all, there is no gene for fate. And when for one reason or another, a member of the elit falls on hard times, their genetic identity becomes a valued commodity for the unscrupulous."
.  "Congratulations!" (doctor)
"What about the interview?" (Vincent)
"That was it." (doctor)
.  "Each day I would dispose of as much loose skin, fingernails and hairs as possible, to limit how much of my in-valid self I would leave in the valid world."
.  "Eugene never suffered from the routine discrimination of a 'utero', or a 'faith birth' or an 'in-valid' as we were called. A 'valid', a 'vitro', a 'made-man', he suffered under a different burden, the burden of perfection. I was now a member of a relatively new and particularly detested segment of society, one of those who refuses to play the hand that he was dealt. I'm more commonly known as a 'borrowed ladder', or a 'de-generate'."
.  "They've got you looking so hard for any flaw, that after a while, that's all that you see. For whatever it's worth, I'm here to tell you that it is possible. It is possible."
.  "For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess, spoiler(Vincent, end of the film)
