Hauser: "The big surprise is that you're not you. You're me."
Quaid (looking at Hauser a.k.a. himself): "No shit."
Cohaagen: "Do you know why I'm happy? Because I can spread all the terbidium in the world. My only concern is that if the rebels win, it all might end. AND YOU'RE F****** MAKING IT HAPPEN!!!!!"
Cohaagen: "I didn't want it to end this way. I wanted Hauser back, but nooo. You had to be Quaid."
Doug Quaid: "I am Quaid."
Cohaagen: "You're nothing. You're nobody. You are just a stupid dream. Well, all dreams come to an end."
