To be human is to be self-involved. Everyone believes that they're the center of the universe. We can't help it. It's in our nature. We scheme. We plot. We play our silly little games. Like, why do we think we're the most important thing in the world? We're just not.

The universe is indifferent, doesn't care about our stupid little plans or our fragile little hearts. The universe has its own plans for us.

I understand you're pregnant. Congratulations. That's wonderful news. Do you know that it's a privilege to have a child on Snowpiercer. It's not a right. And privileges, well, they can be taken away just as easily as they are given.

Cavill

Pelton: Layton wants what we want. No classes. No borders.
Astrid: Equal labor. Equal rations.
Thirdie: But the Tailies want space! What about that?
Layton: We are not coming for your beds. First Class has a BOWLING ALLEY.

I got thrown in a Drawer for what I learned. About the man in the engine? I pulled back the curtain and I found out something that, deep down, I think you all already know.

Layton

Josie: All the things you've done. All those things you're hiding. Wilford's death. Murders. Children in Drawers. You must have had your reasons. You must have. But you have to know, deep down, somewhere that none of this is right.
Cavill: Mr. Wilford engineered Snowpiercer to function in a certain way. If I had created it, I would've created a different world, a more just world. But I didn't. I inherited someone else's creation.

People seem to think that those in power answer to no one. They're free to do as they choose. It couldn't be further from the truth. Person in power answers to everyone. I make choices. Not because I want to but because everyone demands it. The train demands it.

Cavill

Josie: I didn't tell her anything. She doesn't know you're one of us.
Till: I'm one of you.
Josie: You have to be.
Till: I'm still a brakeman, Josie. What I did for you and Layton, I just did it because it wasn't right.
Josie: It's the only reason you need.
Till: I still have a duty to this train.
Josie: We have a duty to each other. And to the workers. And to the weakest among us. There's no future without it, Beth. You just have to decide what's right and wrong. Doesn't matter what the consequences are for you.

Cavill: You know, once you pass through that door, there's no turning back. You'll be an engineer. But to be an engineer on Snowpiercer, you have to make sacrifices. And that can be hard.
Miles: Are you happy as an engineer?
Cavill: The needs of the train are more important than our own happiness. We're engineers. We keep the world alive.

I've been thinking about you. And how much you like dirty little secrets. How would you like to know the dirtiest little secret on the whole damn train?

Layton
