True Lies (1994) Poster


Jamie Lee Curtis: Helen Tasker



  • Helen Tasker : Have you ever killed anyone?

    Harry : Yeah, but they were all bad.

  • [after watching her husband kill dozens of men,on a deserted island ] 

    Helen Tasker : [walking next to wooden crates]  I married Rambo!

  • Simon : [hitting on a woman at the party]  Here, let me pour you some more champaigne. I gotta keep up the waiter bit, these stakeouts can be a little tricky you know, you never know if things can explode to a life or death situation, just stay low and I'll contact you later. Maybe you should give me your tele...

    Harry : [puts his hand in Simon]  So, we meet again Carlos.

    Helen Tasker : [puts her lipstick case under Simon's chin]  Honey, I'm gonna do him right here.

    Harry : [proudly]  Go for it.

    Simon : Oh god.

    [pees in his pants] 

    Helen Tasker : Fear is not an option.

    [Simon runs out of the party nervously screaming] 

  • Simon : [in a Chinese restaurant]  Did you read the papers yesterday?

    Helen Tasker : [whispers]  Yes.

    Simon : Sometimes a story's a mask for a covert operation. See "Two men killed in a restroom and two unidentified men in a running shootout ending at the Marriot."

    Helen Tasker : That was you.

    Harry Tasker : [listening to their conversation with Gib] 

    Simon : You see...

    Harry Tasker : [whispers to Gib]  That was me.

    Simon : You're very good. You recognize my style. You're a natural at this.

    Gib : The guy's a fake, man. He's taking credit for our moves.

    Helen Tasker : What happened?

    Simon : Hardly worth talking about. Two of them won't bother me again.

    Gib : Unbelievable!

    Helen Tasker : You chased one?

    Simon : Something came over me. I just had to nail this guy no matter what the risk. Pretty hairy. I thought he had me a couple of times. But I can't take credit.

    Helen Tasker : Why not?

    Simon : It's the training. It shapes you into a lethal instrument. You react in a microsecond without thinking.

    Gib : [laughing]  I'm startin' to like this guy.

    [Harry gives him a mean look] 

    Gib : [gets serious]  We still gotta kill him. That's a given. You know.

  • Harry : [Loopy from the truth serum he's been given, in private room located on a deserted island]  Ask me a question I would normally lie to.

    Helen Tasker : [panicky]  Are we gonna die?

    Harry : Yep!

    Helen Tasker : I'd say it's working.

    Harry : They're gonna shoot us in the head or they gonna torture us to death or they gonna leave us here when the bomb blows up...

    Helen Tasker : Harry!

  • Harry : [talking through microphones and speakers]  The code name of your assignment will be... Boris. And your code name will be...

    Helen Tasker : [hopeful]  Natasha?

    Harry : No... Doris.

  • [Simon attempting to have sex with Helen on the couch in his trailer] 

    Helen Tasker : No, I can't. I can't!

    [Simon still pursuing] 

    Simon : If not for me, Helen, do it for your country!

  • Helen Tasker : [confessing on why she wants to go with Simon to Paris]  I wanted to do something outrageous, and it felt really good, to be needed, and to be trusted. It's just there's so much I want to do with this life and it feels that I haven't done any of it. You know, the sand is running out of the hourglass, and I want to look back and say, see, I did that, that was me, I was wreckless and I was wild, and I fucking did it.

  • Harry : [viewing Aziz and his behind the railing on one of the upper balconies,trying to translate for Helen what Aziz is saying]  In 90 minutes, the holy fire, will light up the skies.

    [the terrorists are covering the nuclear warhead with an american flag and cement] 

    Harry : We will tell the the whole world, that we speak, the truth. No force can stop us now, we're cool, we're badasses, blah, blah, blah.

    Helen Tasker : Honey, if we're on an island, why are they using trucks?

    Harry : We must be in the Florida Keys. These are the islands that have highways that connect the islands to the mainland.

    Helen Tasker : There's no borders, no customs. They can go anywhere in the U.S. They're will be no one to stop them.

    Harry : But, us. Here take this

    [hands Helen an Uzi] 

    Helen Tasker : [nervously]  Oh, shit.

  • Helen Tasker : [has the upper hand on Juno in the back of a limo and grabs a champagne bottle]  LIKE ONE?

    [hits her with it] 

    Helen Tasker : HOW 'BOUT TWO?

    [clobbers her a second time]
