Donnie: [reading poem in class] “‘A storm is coming,’ Frank says. 'A storm that will swallow the children. And I will deliver them from the kingdom of Bane.

I’ll send them back to a place where no one else can see them except for me, 'cause I am Donnie Darko.’”

Donnie: [to Pommeroy, about the Graham Greene story] Well, they say it right when they flood the house, and they tear it to shreds that, like, uh, destruction is a form of creation.

Donnie: Regret.

Donnie: I have to obey him. He saved my life. I have to obey him, or I’ll be left all alone. And then… And then I won’t be able to figure out what this is all about. I won’t be able to know his master plan.

Dr. Thurman: If this world were to end, there would only be you and him… and no one else.

Gretchen: And what if you could go back in time and take all those hours of pain and darkness and replace them with something better?

Frank: Is she dead?… What were you guys doing in the middle of the road, huh? What are you thinking?
