Gattaca – Irene Cassini Quotes

Irene: Jerome, I had you sequenced. I read your profile. I’m sorry. It seems you’re everything they say you are and more.

Vincent (using Jerome’s identity): What about you Irene? You’re engineered just like the rest of us.

Irene: Not quite like the rest of you. ‘Unacceptable likelihood of heart failure.’ I think that’s what the manual says. The only trip I’ll take in space is around the sun on this satellite right here.

Vincent: If there’s anything wrong with you, I can’t see it from where I’m standing.

Irene: If you don’t believe me, here take it! If you’re still interested let me know

Irene pulls out a strand of her hair, and gives to Vincent. He lets it go, and the wind takes it away.

Vincent (in mock-remorse): I’m sorry, the wind caught it.

Irene has discovered Vincent’s secret:

Irene: I don’t even know who you are.

Vincent: I’m the same person I was yesterday.

Irene: I can’t hear any more of your lies Jerome…

Vincent: My *name* is Vincent, alright? Vincent Anton Freeman, and I’m a “faith birth” or a “de-gene-erate”, whatever you want to call it; but I am NOT a murderer!

Vincent: You’re a “God-child”?

Vincent: [takes Irene's hand and places over his heart] But we do have one thing in common, only I don’t have twenty or thirty years left in mine. Mine is already ten thousand beats overdue.

Irene: It’s not possible.

Vincent: You are the authority on what is not possible, aren’t you Irene? They’ve got you looking for any flaw, that after a while that’s all you see. For what it’s worth, I’m here to tell you that it is possible. It is possible.

Irene: (about running) Don’t you understand I can’t do that?

Vincent: You just did.
