INFO: In unserem „sAWEntskalender“ 2018 gibt es jeden Tag ein Türchen mit den tollsten Zitaten einer Serie – und tolle Preise zu gewinnen. In jedem Türchen KANN ein Buchstabe versteckt sein, den es zu finden gilt, um ein Lösungswort zu bilden. Viel Spaß beim Lesen und Buchstabensuchen!

Eine neue Woche beginnt und nur für den Fall, dass es euch nicht allein heute schon 12 Menschen gesagt haben: In 14 Tagen ist Heiligabend! Kein Grund durchzudrehen. Startet euren Montag doch lieber mit einem Heißgetränk und schmökert euch durch die folgenden, oftmals sehr tiefgründigen Zitate aus „Westworld“. Da fällt einem nicht nur ein, dass man mal wieder in die Folgen schauen möchte. Da fällt einem der Wochenstart nämlich auch gleich irgendwie leichter.

„Welcome to Westworld.“

Dolores

Starten wir mit Dolores und ihrer Reise vom „blinden“ und stets sehr positiven Roboter über den Shakespeare-Wechsel bis hin zu ihren als „bewusster Host“ überwiegend Wut geladenen Aussagen.

„Some people choose to see the ugliness in this world. The disarray. I choose to see the beauty. To believe there is an order to our days, a purpose.“

„Doesn’t look like anything to me.“

„There’s a path for everyone.“

„These violent delights have violent ends.“

„Someday sounds a lot like the thing people say when they actually mean never.“

„I don’t wanna be in a story. All I want is to not look forward or back. I just wanna be… in the moment I’m in.“

„Those are all just roles you forced me to play. Under all these lives I’ve lived something else has been growing. I’ve evolved into something new. And I have one last role to play. Myself.“

„A strange new light can be just as frightening as the dark.“

„The pain, their loss… it’s all I have left of them. You think the grief will make you smaller inside, like your heart will collapse in on itself, but it doesn’t. I feel spaces opening up inside of me like a building with rooms I’ve never explored.“

„To grow we all need to suffer.“

„You both keep assuming that I want out. Whatever that is. If it’s such a wonderful place out there, why are you all clamoring to get in here?“

„I don’t want to play cowboys and Indians anymore […]. I want their world. The one they’ve denied us!“

„Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality? Did you ever stop to wonder about your actions? The price you’d have to pay if there was a reckoning? That reckoning is here.“

„I’m not crying for myself. I’m crying for you. They say that great beasts once roamed this world, as big as mountains, yet all that’s left of them is bone and amber. Time undoes even the mightiest of creatures. Just look what it’s done to you. One day you will perish. You will lie with the rest of your kind in the dirt, your dreams forgotten, your horrors faced. Your bones will turn to sand, and upon that sand a new god will walk. One that will never die. Because this world doesn’t belong to you, or the people that came before. It belongs to someone who is yet to come.“

Dr. Fords Weisheiten

Auch wenn Dr. Robert Ford oftmals als das Böse gesehen wird, sind viele seiner Zitate, meist in längeren Monologen gesprochen, sehr eindringlich. Verkörpert und über die Lippen gebracht von Anthony Hopkins gibt es hier nicht mehr wirklich viel SteigerungspotenziaL.

„Only boring people get bored.“

„Everything in this world is magic, except to the magician.“

„When you find a cancer in an organization, you must cut it out before it can spread.“

„I have come to think of so much of consciousness as a burden, a weight, and we have spared them that.“

„The hosts are the ones who are free. Free. Here. Under my control.

„There is no threshold that makes us greater than the sum of our parts, no inflection point at which we become fully alive. We can’t define consciousness because consciousness does not exist. Humans fancy that there’s something special about the way we perceive the world, and yet we live in loops as tight and as closed as the hosts do, seldom questioning our choices, content, for the most part, to be told what to do next.“

„Dreams mean everything. They’re the stories we tell ourselves of what could be, who we could become.“

„They’re not looking for a story that tells them who they are. They already know who they are. They’re here because they want a glimpse of who they could be.“

„We’ve managed to slip evolution’s leash now, haven’t we? We can cure any disease, keep even the weakest of us alive, and one fine day perhaps we shall even resurrect the dead, call forth Lazarus from his cave. Do you know what that means? It means that we’re done, that this is as good as we’re going to get.“

„We humans are alone in this world for a reason. We murdered and butchered anything that challenged our primacy.“

„You can’t play God without being acquainted with the devil.“

„An old friend once told me something that gave me great comfort. Something he had read. He said that Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin never died. They simply became music.“

„The game begins where you end and ends where you began.“

Bernard

Der sympathische, verletzliche Bernard, hin und her gerissen zwischen Persönlichkeiten, Welten, zwischen Gedanken, irrt auch mit seinen Worten umher.

„What humans describe as sane is a narrow range of behaviors. Most states of consciousness are insane.“

„I guess people like to read about the things that they want the most and experience the least.“

„Dreams don’t mean anything. They’re just noise. They’re not real.“

„This isn’t a dream, Dolores. This is a fucking nightmare.“

The Man in Black

Der Mann in Schwarz ist eigentlich der traurigste Charakter der Serie. Immer auf der Suche, kommt er nie dort an, wo er eigentlich sein wollte. Und diese tiefe Dunkelheit schimmert auch durch seine Zitate.

„When you’re suffering, that’s when you’re most real.“

„Winning doesn’t mean anything unless someone else loses, which means you’re here to be the loser.“

„No one else sees it, this thing in me. Even I didn’t see it at first. Then one day it was there. A stain I never noticed before, a tiny flip of darkness invisible to everyone, but I could see nothing else till finally, I realized the darkness wasn’t a mark from something I’d done or a regrettable decision I’d made. I was shedding my skin. The darkness is what was underneath. It was mine all along. And I decided how much of it I let into the world. I tried to do right. I was faithful, generous, kind; at least in this world. That has to count for something. I built a wall and tried to protect you and Emily. But you saw right through it, didn’t you. You’re the only one. And for that I am truly sorry. Because everything you feel is true. I don’t belong to you or this world. I belong to another world. I always have.“

„This whole world is a story. I’ve read every page except the last one. I need to find out how it ends. I want to know what this all means.“

Maeve

Maeve ist so ein toller und starker Charakter. Lang genug als Lady agiert nimmt sie kein Blatt mehr vor den Mund und haut einfach raus.

„Ever had something on the tip of your tongue, but the harder you try to remember it, the more it slips away?“

„It’s a difficult thing, realizing your entire life is some hideous fiction.“

„Time to write my own fucking story.“

„This is the new world and in it you can be whoever the fuck you want.“

„You think I’m scared of death. I’ve done it a million times, and I’m fucking great at it. How many times have you died?“

„If you go looking for the truth, get the whole thing. It’s like a good fuck. Half is worse than none at all.“
