Seong Gi-hun: I wanna know why you joined us?

Oh Il-nam: Oh, well, in my childhood I always had so much fun out doing things with all of my friends. We'd lose track of time for hours. I wanted to just... feel something just one last time before I die. And you are not going to get that feeling if you are just going to spectate. And I desperately wanted that.

Seong Gi-hun: And so... did playing do that then?

Oh Il-nam: Hell yeah. You asked why I let you live. By joining and playing with you I got that chance to feel again. Thanks to you I got to remember all these things that I had forgotten long ago. It had been such a long time since I was able to have that much fun.

Oh Il-nam (about his rich friends): Everybody felt... that there was no joy in their lives anymore. And so, we decided to get together. We did a little bit of thinking. What could we all do to... finally have some fun?

Seong Gi-hun: Some fun? You put us through all of that... so you can have fun?

Oh Il-nam (to Gi-hun): Do you know what someone who doesn't have any money has in common with someone with too much money to know what to do with? Living is... no fun for either of them. If you have too much money, then it... doesn't matter what you buy, or eat, or drink, or whatever. Everything, well, it all gets boring.

Oh Il-nam (to Gi-hun): Life goes by quick. In one minute... gone in a blink.

Oh Il-nam (to Gi-hun): Can you still... trust anybody to be good even after everything you've been through?

Cho Sang-woo (to Gi-hun): We've already come too far to end this now.

Cho Sang-woo: Gi-hun! Your life is so damn pathetic, and here's why. It's because you always gotta open your mouth and ask something idiotic. Because you're a nosy-ass idiot who's too slow to keep it shut. Someone who always has to get into trouble but somehow can't tell he's in it.

Seong Gi-hun: Okay. That's right. That's how I got caught in all this. Because I was slow, crazy incompetent. Just a dimwit who lives off his mother, but you're with me in this place. Isn't that interesting? Why is that? Ssangmun-dong's golden child, the genius Cho Sang-woo, who went to SNU was here? Rolling around this sh*thole, slamming with us, simpletons, huh! Is it my fault that you're here?

Jang Deok-su: We're in Hell here. There's no rules in Hell.

VIP#1: What convinced you to bet so much on number 69?

VIP#2: Oh, it's, uh, such a beautiful number, 69.

VIP#3: Oh, you dirty dog.

Ji-yeong (to Sae-byeok): I have nothing. You got a reason to get out of this place, but I don't. I thought hard about what I'd do. If I were the one who got out since you asked me earlier. No matter how hard I thought, though, I got nothing. The one who should have a reason to get back out there that's what's right. You can do it. Don't die in here, okay? And go... And go meet your mother. Go get your brother too. And go to Jeju Island.

The Front Man: Players, what you witness before you is what remains of those who broke the rules for their own benefit. They tainted the pure and fair ideology everything here has been built upon. Each and every one of you is considered an equal within the walls of this facility. You must be guaranteed the same opportunities without being disadvantaged or facing any kind of discrimination. We truly apologize for allowing such an unacceptable incident to occur.

The Front Man: Whether you sell the dead bodies' organs or eat them or whatever, I don't give a damn. However, you ruined the most important aspect of this place. Equality. Everyone is equal while they play this game. Here, every player gets to play a fair game under the same conditions. These people suffered from inequality and discrimination out in the world, and we're giving them one last chance to fight fair and win. But you broke that principle.

Oh Il-nam: When I was young, we always like Tug-of-War. It's a game I know well. And back then, I would always win, even if there was a wrestler on the other team, and it seemed the odds were stuck against us. Listen closely, and I'll tell you how my team and I were able to win even when it seemed impossible. First off, having a good leader is very important. The person is at the front and keeps an eye on how the other team is performing. And the rest of the team focuses on the back of their leader's head and follows their lead. If the leader seems weak or looks like their spirit is beginning to falter, then the game is already over. And then at the end of the rope, you'll need to have someone strong and dependable like the anchor of a ship. After that, it's all about how you arrange the rest of your team. If one player is on the right side of the rope, then the next one should be on the left, all the way down the rope. Both of your feet should be facing straight forward, and then, hold the rope in your armpits. That way, everyone can put in all of their strength. Finally, and this is absolutely the most important thing. Once the game begins, for the first ten seconds you have to hold your ground. You should lean back, practically lie down. Push your lower abdomen up to the sky, as hard as you can. And throw your head back to the point where you can almost see the groin of the person behind you. If you do that, the other team won't be able to pull us to their side. Just hold like this for ten seconds. Then the opposing team will start to get frustrated because they are thinking, "Why won't they budge?" Because they believed that they were much stronger. If you can hold out for that long, you will be able to catch a moment in your opponents' hold, and their rhythm breaks.

Seong Gi-hun: Listen, you don't trust people here because you can. You do it because you don't have anybody else.
