Movie: Green Lantern
Hal Jordan: I know that humans aren't as strong as other species, or the smartest. We're young, we have a lot to learn. But we're worth saving. [the Guardians don't answer]
Hal Jordan: This new weapon of yours, you can't use it. Once you've crossed that line, once you've given into fear, you'll never go back. I've seen it. Look, I know right now you're afraid.
First Guardian: You dare accuse the Guardians of feeling fear?
Hal Jordan: Yes, I do. And that's exactly why Parallax is beating you. Because you're afraid to even admit you're afraid! I know. I spent my entire life doing it. You know, we have a saying on earth. We say: I'm only human. We say it because we're vulnerable, we say it because we know we're afraid, but it doesn't mean we're weak. Help me save my planet. Don't give in to fear. Fight it. Fight it with me.
Female Guardian: Your words are compelling, young human. But as immortals, we must measure our actions over billions of years and the fate of the universe. We simply cannot risk losing everything on the chance you might be right.
Hal Jordan: Then don't. Don't risk anymore lives. Just mine. Let me go fight for my world, and I'll show you that will is stronger than fear.
Sinestro: There is no way that you could succeed. You will die, Hal Jordan.
Hal Jordan: Then I'll die trying.
Sinestro: Good luck, Green Lantern.

Movie: Green Lantern
Sinestro: You're impertinent, Hal Jordan. You're rash, volatile, opinionated - It seems Abin Sur found another just like himself.

Green Lantern: Evening, ma'am. Didn't have chance to say goodbye. Are you okay?
Carol Ferris: Uh, yeah, no, I'm glad I have a chance to thank you.
Green Lantern: Just doing my job. No thanks necessary, miss.
Carol Ferris: No, it is. You saved my life. You saved all of our lives. That was a very... [looks closer at him]
Carol Ferris: Hal?
Green Lantern: Miss?
Carol Ferris: Hal? Oh, my G...! Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Hal!
Green Lantern: How did you know it was me?
Carol Ferris: What do you mean? I've known you my whole life! I've seen you naked! You don't think I would recognize you because I can't see your cheekbones? What is this? Why is your skin green? Why are you glowing? What the hell is with that mask?
Green Lantern: It came with the outfit. Cool, huh?

Movie: Green Lantern
Hal Jordan: [trying to charge his ring]To infinity and beyond!... By the power of Grayskull!

Movie: Green Lantern
[last words]Abin Sur: The ring, it chose you. Take it... place the ring on the lantern... place the ring, speak the oath... great honor... responsibility.

Movie: Green Lantern
Hal Jordan: They said that the ring wouldn't have chosen me if it didn't see something. Something I don't see. Yet.
Carol Ferris: I see it. I always have. The ring didn't see that you were fearless. It saw that you had the ability to overcome fear. It saw that you're courageous. Which you are. Just like your dad.

Movie: Green Lantern
[Hal struts around in a Green Lantern outfit]Tomar-Re: Have you concluded admiring yourself?

Movie: Green Lantern
Kilowog: Next lesson. [constructs a sun with his ring, Hal is pulled toward it]
Kilowog: Feel that? It's the gravitational pull of your average sun. Makes flying through space very dangerous. The bigger you are, the faster you burn. Gravity's a bitch.

Movie: Green Lantern
Hal Jordan: Hey, Carol. Was gonna do a little flying today. What do you think?
Carol Ferris: I think you're late.
Hal Jordan: Yes, that's only because I slept in.
Carol Ferris: I used to sleep in. Then I turned 11. Let me give you a little heads-up. I've gone up against these Sabres all week and they have smoked me every time. There isn't anything you can do that they can't do better, faster and without disappointing woman everywhere.
Hal Jordan: I, uh, think we both know that's not true.
Carol Ferris: This is exactly why I didn't want you for this. My father did. I would've gone with Jensen.
Hal Jordan: I'd have gone with Jensen too. But unfortunately, he's busy not being good enough.
Carol Ferris: At least he shows up. Hal, this test today, it's important.
Hal Jordan: I got it. I'm gonna make you look good up there. Don't worry, okay? Now let's get these pants off and fly some planes.

Movie: Green Lantern
Hal Jordan: A talking fish...
Tomar-Re: Actually, my race is Xudarian. Our DNA does some what resemble your own ichthyological species. I am Tomar-Re, protector of Sector 2613 and home to...
Hal Jordan: 80,012 galaxies, 2.34 million sentient species. How do I know that?
Tomar-Re: The induction process. It activates the ring's higher functions, including a working knowledge base. In truth, we were curious. The process has never been attempted on a species as young as humans before. As you are the first to be chosen, I've been sent to welcome you here.
Hal Jordan: And here is? [Tomar-Re shows him an alien metropolis]
Tomar-Re: Welcome to Oa.

Sinestro: The Corps is only as strong as its weakest link. And I am tolerant to no weak links, you understand?... Are you afraid, human? [pokes Jordan]

These immortals, the Guardians of the Universe, built a world from where they could watch over all of existence: the planet Oa. They divided the universe into 3600 sectors, a ring powered by the energy of will was sent to every sector of the universe to select a recruit. In order to be chosen by the ring, it is said that one must be without fear. Together, these 3600 recruits formed the intergalactic peacekeepers known as the Green Lantern Corps.

Thomas Kalmaku: Well, maybe on their planet responsibility just means asshole.
Hal Jordan: Let's hope so.

Movie: Green Lantern
Hal Jordan: You know, I used to know this kid. Was a funny looking bastard. One day, he's standing on the mound, and he throws a perfect game.
Jason Jordan: That... that was me.
Hal Jordan: That was you? Thought you looked familiar. You were totally in the zone that day. Remember?
Jason Jordan: I still dream about it.
Hal Jordan: I bet. [grabs a baseball]
Hal Jordan: Take it. Close your eyes. Go on. Now, can you remember exactly how you felt that day? That's how I feel when I'm flying. Like that plane is a part of me. No, it's like, no matter how bad things get, there's something good out there just over the horizon.

[Hammond probes the Green Lantern's mind]Hector Hammond: Hal, hi. The alien was one of you. How did we end up so different, hmmm? Hmmm? [Green Lantern tries to get up]
Hector Hammond: [psychic blast]SIT DOWN!

Movie: Green Lantern
Thomas Kalmaku: Let me get this straight. This thing that's out there, attacking planets, is connected to Hector?
Hal Jordan: Some how it infected him after it killed Abin Sur.
Carol Ferris: Well, you're just gonna have to stop it.
Hal Jordan: Oh, just gonna have to stop it! Well, I tried that and I failed and the Senator died. I told you the ring made a mistake.
Carol Ferris: Wait, go back. How did the ring make a mistake?
Hal Jordan: The one thing that a Green Lantern is supposed to be is fearless. Fearless, is the job description. That isn't me.
Carol Ferris: So you're just gonna walk away again? Explain this to me, Hal. Please explain to me, just once, why?
Hal Jordan: Because I'm afraid!

Movie: Green Lantern
Hector Hammond: [referring to an unconscious Carol as he levitates her with a syringe floating by her throat]She's beautiful, isn't she? I loved her from the moment I first saw her. But she could never see me, cause you were always in the way. But not anymore. [Hector uses his power to bring the syringe closer Carol's throat]
Hal Jordan: No! No! Don't! Don't do this, Hector! Please. Please. I know how you feel.
Hector Hammond: Come on! Look at yourself!
Hal Jordan: No, I know what it's like. To not live up to expectations. To feel like nothing that you do will ever be good enough [he takes off his ring and the Green Lantern costume is gone, he's back in his own clothes]
Hal Jordan: I know what it's like to be afraid. Let me help you.
Hector Hammond: Hal, you've changed. How wonderful that all it took for you to grow up was the end of the world.

Movie: Green Lantern
Tomar-Re: Of all the threats the Corps ever faced, the gravest was an entity of fear known as Parallax. Only the legendary Green Lantern Abin Sur was capable of capturing and imprisoning this beast, which he did on the lost planet of Ryut.
