“Go. See to your sister. I am grateful… and blessed to be with you. I am sorry. Bi-Han!”

“I may not understand your words… but I promise you this… I will kill you. Do not forget… …this face.”

“Unleash me…”

Sub Zero

“Find Hanzo! He’s not here? Where is Hanzo? You learned that from your father? Very well.”

“The great warrior Hanzo Hasashi. This day has been a long time coming… …the end of your bloodline. Your mighty clan… the Shirai Ryu… …have been exterminated by me. For the Lin Kuei.”

“There is no prophecy. Hanzo is a ghost. I killed him centuries ago.”

“I am no longer Bi-Han. I am Sub-Zero.”

Shang Tsung

“The prophecy is upon us which means we could lose the tenth tournament. Winning Mortal Kombat cannot be left to chance. There will be no tournament because there will be no opposition left to fight. We will already be victorious. Go now and kill Earthrealm’s champions… Bi-Han.”

“Leave the Elder Gods to me. We didn’t win nine straight tournaments by following the rules. Mileena, let’s finish this. Send in the reptilian Syzoth.”

Jax

“Cole Young. The man that took the belt from Eddie Tobias. No. Name’s Jax. Could’ve won today. She’s smart. One more thing, champ. That dragon logo you got, I dig that, man. It’s unique. Where’d you get it from? What do you mean? You serious? Well, ain’t that something? See you around, champ.”

“Got my eyes on him right now. He’s got the mark, I saw it. He’s with his family. Get in the truck, Cole! Now! Blade, I got him. I’ll see you at base at 2300. Funny, that didn’t sound much like, ‘thanks for saving my ass.’ Whatever that was back there, it’s after both of us. Look. It’s not a birthmark, Cole. To fight. No shit. But they don’t have the marking. So, like it or not, Cole, you’re the guy. And as long as you got that marking, they’re coming for you. And they will kill whoever they have to get to you. Take the truck. Get your family to safety. You need to get to Gary, Indiana. Find Sonya Blade. 806 West Washington Boulevard. You want your family on a fucking slab in the morgue? Now, get out of here. So, you wanna play hide-and-seek? I’ve done six tours, motherfucker.”

Cole Young

“Good. Who am I fighting? You don’t like it, find someone else who will do this in an hour’s notice for $200.”

“Damn, Young. Yeah, you too. A’ight. Ready to go? What you got there? Just made this? That’s pretty cool. My hand. Yeah. I guess I should have thrown the uppercut, huh? Yeah, that was a long time ago. Have we met? Nice to meet you, Jax. All right. Well, time to go eat, yeah? Nice chatting with you.”

“Close. Standing. Yeah. Ally, come take a look at this. It’s snowing. Emily! Stay calm, stay calm! Come on, come on! Let’s go! Move, move, move! What the fuck is that thing? That’s… that’s impossible. Chosen? For what? You got the wrong person, all right? I’m not the fighter that I used to be, okay? Are you sure? We can take him out together. Hold on tight, guys.”

“She’s finally asleep. I should go. You’ll be safe here, Ally. You heard what Jax said. That thing is hunting people with the marking. It’s after me. And if I stay here and it shows up, it could kill us all. I’m not gonna let that happen. We have to be sure. The name he gave me. Sonya Blade.”

“Wait. I’m looking for Sonya Blade. Jax sent me. Where’s what? He stayed behind to fight. You guys are military? Holy…. what is this? Well, this looks, uh, pretty safe. Did you make that last part up. It just kind of sounds like you made it up. And look, they spelled it wrong.”

“What is this? You have a visitor? Who are you? Kano? Kano what? Was that Russian? Just sit tight. Where is it? Where? Did you shoot it? Sonya! Are you okay? Kano! Use the flare!”

“What’s the plan? What are you doing? He’s a psychopath. What’s Raiden’s Temple? You got friends? You’re gonna give that guy three million dollars? Yeah. All right, simple. But how do we know when to… “

Mileena

“Master. Sub-Zero tracked and killed another one of Earth’s champions. But another has escaped. Have our assassins double their efforts. What of Lord Raiden? If he discovers we’re breaking rules set in stone by the Elder Gods…”

Sonya Blade

“What are you doing here? Where is it? The marking. I’m Sonya. Jax hasn’t checked in. Where is he? Close the door. Jax, where are you? Come on. Special forces. We needed a safe place to run our operation. This is where we keep all we’ve learned about the dragon markings. first learned about this seven years ago. Jax and I were on a mission in Brazil to capture a wanted fugitive. When we got there, the target had superhuman abilities. Tore through our unit in seconds. The target had the same marking you do, Cole. When Jax finally took it down, the dragon marking transferred directly to his skin. I’ve spent years trying to figure it all out. Seems that throughout history, different cultures all over the world, they reference a great tournament. But my research shows that there’s realms and species that we didn’t even know existed. That dragon marking, it signifies that you’ve been chosen to fight for Earth. It’s an invitation to fight for something known as Mortal Kombat. Hey, you listen to me. I think there’s another tournament coming. That’s why you’re here. That is why Jax and I have been tracking you. Because we need to find every last champion before it’s too late. And FYI, most of them are dead already. There’s more to this, Cole. I know it. And I swear to God, I’m going to get to the bottom of it.”

“Careful, he bites. That’s Kano. He’s a mercenary with the Black Dragon Clan. Arms dealer, drug runner, murder-for-hire, scum of the Earth. I was lucky enough to find Kano here instead right after he slit the guy’s throat. You were never chosen. Fate has better standards than you. What about you? Where’s your marking? I don’t have one. Shh! I think I clipped it. Yeah. Knife.”

“Fucking A. Years of research just destroyed. So, do you believe me now? There is none. Oh… make yourself at home. You know where that is? The legend says champions used to train there for Mortal Kombat. No one knows where it is. Where is it? Yeah. Okay.”

“Everyone’s got a price. Name yours. Two million. I have lived here my whole life, you piece of shit. You watch your mouth. Two million dollars. Yeah. Nah, fuck ya. Great! Sounds like we got a deal. How are you planning on getting us there? Fuck no. I live in this shithole. You think I got three million dollars?”

“Hey! You were out of it. You okay? Come on. Let’s go. First time? You’ll be okay. You just gotta jump, count to three, and pull this guy. What? You’re fucking kidding me. So, how close are we?”

Kano

“I hate to interrupt your bullshit, blondie. Well, I gotta piss again. Oh, hello sunshine. Kano none-of-your-fucking-business! Do I sound Russian to you, you fuckin’ idiot? I also give really good foot massages. Actually, that’s kind of a funny story. You wanna tell him. Yeah, well, next time be more punctual. Lucky for you, I don’t have any standards. Let’s see if you’re a natural blonde. Not bad. Almost felt that one. Come on! Hey, hey, new guy. New guy. Get me out of here. I can help you. I was about to go for a stroll. Fuck! What the fuck was that? That was my knife, too! Fucking poetry. Come on. All right. I’m outta here. There you are. Kano wins. You fuckin’ beauty.”

“Yeah, I have. Oh, by the way, your beer is shit, and you’re almost out of it. Just working on a Kano graphic novel. I fancy myself a bit of an artist. Well, all the best artists are a little twisted, mate. Well, I’m off! You’re trying to get to Raiden’s Temple, aren’t ya? That should be fun. Yeah, I used to run guns through there. Ah, for fuck’s sake… well, they do now. Excuse me. Uh, you got a pen? You wanna write this down? ‘Get fucked.’ As if I’m gonna help you. You kidnapped me. You tied me up. You threw a knife in my fucking leg on purpose! And then, that lizard thing took off half of my face. Lucky for me, you can hardly notice it. So, yeah, it’s a hard pass for me on the ‘helping you’ thing. Now, get out of me fucking way. There you go.”

“You can’t afford me. That’s good. You live in this shithole, and you got two millions dollars. Pig’s arse. Fuck it. Three million. That’s my final offer. And anything I find inside that temple, I keep! No fucking splitsies! Plus, if you’re bullshitting me, I’ll fucking kill ya. It’s no skin off my sack. I was gonna head there anyway. Ya fuckin’ idiot! Oh, I got a friend with a plane. Hey, fuck you, pretty boy. I’m a popular guy. Everyone loves me. Whoo! Ah, bloody garden gnomes. They give me the creeps.”

“There I was, trying to shove this guy’s nuts down his throat. And all I kept thinking about was what I should get me mum for Christmas. Your mum’s been dead for 30 fucking year’s, mate. Kid can dream, can’t we? All right. Thank you for flying Air Kano. I know you had fuck all choices. Tray tables up. Time to jump out of this shitbox. We don’t got all day, princess…”

Allison Young

“Check it’s tight. Close your hand. That feel good? Good. You know I don’t watch him fight anymore.”

“Hey. Still in one piece. How’d it go? This close? But it’s July. Emily! Get in the car! Go, go, go! Cole. Jax could have killed it.”

Emily Young

“Throw your uppercut. You got him. That’s it. No! Get up! Take control! Come on! Come on! Don’t tap out!

“In a sec. It’s a strength bracelet. Yeah. You want me to put it on? Now we got one each. You’re sure you’re okay? Told you so. He was born with it. It’s a birthmark. Show him.”

“Hi, mom. He was this close to beating him. You sure you’re okay? Let’s go order.”

Referee

“You made it. Always rely on Cole Young, human punching bag. Fighting? No, no, no, Cole. Fighting requires both attacking and defending, not just throwing punches. You should try it sometime. All right, don’t get sensitive. Yeah, he’s experienced, fast. Good fighter. Who’s your cornerman? What? You’re fucking serious? You sticking around for this one? Yeah, well… give the people a good show, huh? Or they won’t stick around either.”

“It’s done! Done! Back it up, Eddie!”

Harumi Hasashi

“I’m going to need more than two buckets. How can it be so cold in here? What’s wrong little one? Is it too cold? Quickly Jubei!”

Satoshi Hasashi

“Can I check on my sister? Yes father.”

MMA fighter

“Yes! Hell of a fight, man. Respect you.”
