The Fifth Element – Zorg Quotes

So, Mr. Zorg, any particular likes or dislikes…?

Zorg: I don’t like warriors. Too narrow-minded, no subtlety. And worse, they fight for hopeless causes. Honor? Huh! Honor’s killed millions of people, it hasn’t saved a single one. Tell you what I do like though. A killer. A dyed-in-the-wool killer. Cold blooded, clean, methodical and thorough.

Zorg shows off some tempting merchandise:

Zorg: Voila! The ZF-1.

[the weapon opens, and Zorg picks it up]

Zorg: It’s light. Handle’s adjustable for easy carrying, good for righties and lefties. Breaks down into four parts, undetectable by x-ray, ideal for quick, discreet interventions. A word on firepower. Titanium recharger, three thousand round clip with bursts of three to three hundred, and with the Replay button – another Zorg invention – it’s even easier.

The mission brief is pretty simple:

Zorg: Torture who you have to, the President, I don’t care. Just bring me the stones. You have one hour.

Zorg is let down by poor quality henchman-outsourcing:

Zorg: A case with four stones in it! Not one or two or three but four! FOUR STONES! What the hell am I supposed to do with an empty case?

Aknot: We are warriors, not merchants.

Zorg: But you can still count. Look it’s easy. Look at my fingers, four stones, four crates, zero stones, zero crates! Pack everything up we’re outta here.

Aknot: [Mangalores raise their guns] We risked our lives! I think a little compensation is in order.

Zorg: Oh, so you are merchants after all. Leave them one crate for the cause.

Just in case you didn’t notice:

Vito Cornelius: You’re a monster, Zorg.

Zorg: I know.

Zorg has a pleasant chat with the entity of ultimate evil:

Shadow: How are the stones?

Zorg: Fine… fine, just fine… I’ll, I’ll have the… ah… I’ll have the four stones you asked for anytime now… but, but it wasn’t easy. My costs… have tripled.

Shadow: Money is of… no importance. I… want… the… STONES…

Zorg: The stones… will be here… I’ll see to it personally…

Shadow: I will be among you… soon.

Zorg tries to play the ‘Richard Dawkins’ card, but it won’t wash:

Zorg: Where are the stones?

Vito Cornelius: I don’t know. And even if I did know, I wouldn’t tell someone like you.

Zorg: Why? What’s wrong with me?

Vito Cornelius: I try to serve life. And you seem to want to destroy it.

Zorg: Oh, Father. You’re so wrong. Let me explain.

[Puts and empty water glass on his desk]

Zorg: Life, which you so nobly serve, comes from destruction, disorder and chaos. Now take this empty glass. Here it is: peaceful, serene, boring. But if it is destroyed…

[Pushes the glass off the table. It shatter on the floor, and several small machines come out to clean it up]

Zorg: Look at all these little things! So busy now! Notice how each one is useful. A lovely ballet ensues, so full of form and color. Now, think about all those people that created them. Technicians, engineers, hundreds of people, who will be able to feed their children tonight, so those children can grow up big and strong and have little teeny children of their own, and so on and so forth. Thus, adding to the great chain of life. You see, father, by causing a little destruction, I am in fact encouraging life. In reality, you and I are in the same business.
