"The Immortal Life of Henrietta Laos " (?)
The name of the book Lena reads as she and her husband (Oscar Isaac) sit before the (depressingly generic) fireplace.
This quote is not in IMDb:
Lena lectures in Johns Hopkins Med school class:
This is a cell. Like all cells, it is born from an existing cell. And by extension, all cells were ultimately born from one cell. A single organism alone on planet Earth, perhaps alone in the universe. About four billion years ago... one became two, two became four. Then eight, 16, 32. The rhythm of the dividing pair... which becomes the structure of every microbe, blade of grass, sea creature, land creature... and human. The structure of everything that lives... and everything that dies. As students of medicine, as the doctors of tomorrow, this is where you come in. The cell we're looking at is from a tumor. Female patient, early 30s, taken from the cervix.
Over the course of the next term, we will be closely examining cancer cells
in vitro and discussing autophagic activity.
This quote is one of many in IMDb (Thank you!!)
Lena: Why did my husband volunteer for a suicide mission?
Dr Ventress: Is that what you think we're doing? Committing suicide?
Lena: You must have profiled him. You must have assessed him. He must have said something.
Dr Ventress: So you're asking me as a psychologist?
Dr Ventress: Then, as a psychologist, I think you're confusing suicide with self-destruction. Almost none of us commit suicide, and almost all of us self-destruct. In some way, in some part of our lives. We drink, or we smoke, we destabilize the good job... and a happy marriage. But these aren't decisions, they're... they're impulses. In fact, you're probably better equipped to explain this than I am.
Lena: What does that mean?
Dr Ventress: You're a biologist. Isn't the self-destruction coded into us? Programmed into each cell?
This quote is one of many in IMDb:
Kane: I was just looking at the moon. It's always so weird seeing it like that in the daylight.
Lena: Like God made a mistake. Left the hall lights on.
Kane: God doesn't make mistakes. That's... somewhat key to the whole "being a god" thing.
Lena: Pretty sure he does.
Kane: You know he's listening right now, don't you?
Lena: You take a cell, circumvent the Hayflick limit, you can prevent senescence.
Kane: I was about to make the exact same point.
Lena: It means the cell doesn't grow old, it becomes immortal. Keeps dividing, doesn't die. They say aging is a natural process, but it's actually a fault in our genes.
Kane: I get really turned on when you patronize me. It's really hot.
Lena: Without it, I could keep looking like this forever.
Kane: Oh, okay. Well, that could constitute a mistake.
