- Dorian Gray: I prefer paintings. Photographs are so ironically... impermanent. They capture one moment in time to perfection. A painting can capture eternity.
- Vanessa Ives: I think, Mr. Gray, there are... tremors around us. Like the vibrations of a note of music. Hidden music. Some might be more attuned to them than others. What do those people do, those who have been chosen?
- Dorian Gray: They endure uniqueness.
- Vanessa Ives: To be alien. To be disenfranchised from those around you, is that not a dreadful curse?
- Dorian Gray: To be different, to be powerful... is that not a divine gift?
- Vanessa Ives: To be alone.
- Dorian Gray: To be seeking.
- Vanessa Ives: What?
- Dorian Gray: Another.
- Vanessa Ives: Like you.
- Dorian Gray: Who shares your rarity.
- Vanessa Ives: Then you are no longer unique.
- Dorian Gray: Nor are you alone.
- Sembene: I have been thinking about your daughter.
- Malcolm Murray: And?
- Sembene: So you find her. But say she cannot be saved.
- Malcolm Murray: If I find her, she will be saved.
- Sembene: No. For the blood we share, for the miles we have walked, Malcolm, we are not the same. Where I come from, we know some people cannot be saved. So your daughter is one of them. What then? Know what you are going to do.
- Vanessa Ives: And you think it was the creature we seek?
- Malcolm Murray: I would assume so. I mean, how many of them can there be? They do rather stand out.
- Dorian Gray: What sort of music would you like?
- Vanessa Ives: Meaning who do I want to be at this moment. Dorian Gray, who do you want to be?
- Dorian Gray: Myself. Without limits.
- Vanessa Ives: Then put on music for dancing.
- Dorian Gray: You have exceptional composure.
- Vanessa Ives: Do I?
- Dorian Gray: Poise, I mean.
- Vanessa Ives: Control.
- Dorian Gray: Yes. What if you were to abandon this?
- Vanessa Ives: I couldn't.
- Dorian Gray: Why?
- Vanessa Ives: There are things within our soul that can never be unleashed.
- Dorian Gray: What would happen if they were?
- Vanessa Ives: They would consume us, we would cease to be and another would exist in our place, without control. Without limits.
