Prisoners (2013) Poster


Jake Gyllenhaal: Detective Loki



  • Captain Richard O'Malley : You think this is gonna lead you to the bodies? Cause I sure as shit don't.

    Detective Loki : Do me a favor, captain. Go fuck yourself.

  • Detective Loki : There's a bag of lye in your basement; it's half-empty... Your wife thinks you've been helping us... but we both know that's not true...

    Keller Dover : I used the lye to bury our dog last year... And "helping a cop" sounds better than "I've been out driving around aimlessly in my truck 'cause I don't know what the fuck else to do."

    Detective Loki : Is that what you were doing last Saturday night?

    Keller Dover : Probably. Am I a suspect?

    Detective Loki : No, I'm only asking... I'm only asking because your assaulted man has gone missing.

    Keller Dover : [pauses]  I heard about that. What happened...? I thought you had him under surveillance.

    Detective Loki : [Stammers]  I'm gonna assume you're asking because you have no idea.

    Keller Dover : Yeah, well I didn't think it was something I could get away with.

    Detective Loki : It's not...

    Keller Dover : They skip town, this asshole is guilty. Oh, it couldn't be that, right? 'Cause then it'd be your fault, right?

    Detective Loki : Mr. Dover... Mr. Dover.

    Keller Dover : What?

    Detective Loki : You need to take care of yourself and your wife; that's the best thing you can do right now... That little girl is gonna need you when she comes home.

    Keller Dover : Kids gone for more than a week... have half as good a chance of being found. And half for a month, almost none are found alive, alright? So, forgive me for doing everything I can to f...

    Detective Loki : You know what? It hasn't been a fucking week.

    Detective Loki : You're right.


    Detective Loki : Day fucking six!

    Detective Loki : No.


    Detective Loki : It hasn't been a fucking week!

    Keller Dover : Day six.

    [Eyes well with tears] 

    Keller Dover : And every day, she's wondering why I'm not there to fucking rescue her! Do you understand that? Me, not you! Not you! But me! EVERY DAY!

    Detective Loki : All right...


    [pauses as he looks at Detective, breathing heavily in anger; he begins repeatedly bashing his fist against the dashboard] 


    Detective Loki : Hey, hey, hey, hey...

    [Calmly reaches his hand to Keller's shoulder to calm him down] 

    Keller Dover : [Sharply recoils Detective Loki's hand from his shoulder]  Don't follow me.

    Detective Loki : Mr. Dover, Mr. Dover...

    [Keller sighs and turns to him] 

    Detective Loki : You don't think I'm gonna let you get behind the wheel after you've been drinking, do you?

    Keller Dover : [Opens the car door]  I'm gonna walk. You look for my daughter.

    [Slams the car door shut] 

  • Detective Loki : Alex Jones, unfortunately has the I.Q. of a 10 year-old. There's no way someone with the I.Q. of a 10 year-old could abduct 2 girls in broad daylight and then... somehow dissppear.

    Keller Dover : Well, maybe he wasn't on his own. How could he drive an RV if he has an I.Q. of a 10 year-old?

  • Keller Dover : Why aren't you sending someone out to go arrest this guy?

    Captain Richard O'Malley : Tell Detective Loki what you just told me, and he'll definitely look into it. Go ahead.

    Keller Dover : [sighs and turns to Loki]  That asshole you promised me you'd keep in custody... Right? And you didn't... And right now, when I grabbed him in the parking lot, he said right to my fucking face, "They didn't cry until I left them." Right to my fucking face!

    Detective Loki : He said that to you in the parking lot just now?

    Keller Dover : Right now! Yeah! What did I just say? In the parking lot! Before you grabbed me off him.

    Detective Loki : Did anyone else hear him besides you?

    Keller Dover : I don't know... He was quiet. He-he said it to me. He wanted me to know.

    Detective Loki : Are you sure he said that?

    Keller Dover : What?

    Detective Loki : Are you sure that's what he said?

    Keller Dover : Jesus Christ, you think I'm making this up?

    Detective Loki : No, I don't think that, I just...

    Keller Dover : Why would I make this up? No, no think about! Why would I make this up?

    Detective Loki : I'm not saying that to you. I'm just asking you a couple questions... I will talk to him, okay?

    Keller Dover : No, don't talk to him! Arrest him!

    [Storms out] 

    Detective Loki : [Turns to Captain O'Malley]  What'd I fucking tell you...? What'd I tell you? One more day.

  • Keller Dover : He stays in custody till my daughter is found right? Right?

    Detective Loki : We have a 48-hour hold on him. It ends tomorrow unless we bring charges.

    Keller Dover : Well, then charge him with something... Charge him!

    Detective Loki : Mr. Dover...

    Keller Dover : [Interrupts]  Detective, Detective. Two little girls have *gotta* be worth whatever little rule you gotta break to keep that asshole in custody. Now, I know you can't promise me anything, I understand that. But I'm asking you, be sure. Be 100% sure...

    [Loki nods] 

    Keller Dover : Thank you... I appreciate it.

  • Keller Dover : [Stammers]  My-my son already told you th-that the guy was inside the RV just watching them... right?

    Detective Loki : We haven't found any physical evidence inside the RV... or at his aunt's house, where he lives.

    Keller Dover : Nothing...?

    Detective Loki : Alex Jones, unfortunately, has the IQ of a ten year-old... There is no way that someone with an IQ of a ten year-old could abduct two girls in broad daylight and then... somehow, make the disappear.

    Keller Dover : Uh, well, how can he drive an RV? If-if he can't answer a question...?

    Detective Loki : Well, he has a legal Pennsylvania license.

    Keller Dover : And he ran, right? They said he tried to run away.


    Keller Dover : Why would he run?

    Detective Loki : I've spent ten hours questioning this boy, okay? I hear what you're saying.

    Keller Dover : Uh... did-did you give him a lie detector? You gave us a lie dete - did you give him one?

    Detective Loki : Sir, I understand what you're asking me: yes we did.

    Keller Dover : And?

    Detective Loki : We gave him a lie detector, and there's no way of... A lie detector doesn't work if you don't understand the questions.

    Keller Dover : Well, maybe he wasn't on his own... How can he drive RV if he has an IQ of a ten year-old?

    Detective Loki : Sir, sir, hey, we are considering all possibilities...


    Detective Loki : No, I-I-I hear what you're saying, I - S-sir, sir...

    Keller Dover : I don't think you are considering all possibilities.


    Keller Dover : No, you listen to me! Just shut the fuck up for a fucking second!

    [Grace jumps, startled at his frustration and cries softly] 

    Detective Loki : Here's what I'm gonna need you to do for me: I need you to calm down.

    Keller Dover : [Trembles]  I'm sorry. I'm s-sorry... Please listen to me for a second...

    Detective Loki : Mr. Dover... I understand that this is an incredibly hard time, but I have every uniformed police officer in this State looking for Anna.

    Keller Dover : [Fights back tears]  I don't understand what any of this means; they said he ran... They said he tried to get away. I don't understand w-why he would try to... run away.

    Detective Loki : We're considering all possibilities, Mr. Dover. I hear what you're saying. I'm not crossing anybody off my list... Just... let me do my job.

  • [repeated line] 

    Detective Loki : Tell me what you're drawing.

  • Detective Loki : I'm gonna find your daughters.

  • Detective Loki : Just let me do my job.
