Ms. Kelly: And if we don't want to repeat of the excess and wastefulness of the 20th Century then we need to teach our kids about this planet, not tales of leaving it.
Cooper: You know, one of those useless machines they used to make was called an MRI, and if we had any of those left the doctors would have been able to find the cyst in my wife's brain, *before* she died instead of after, and then she would've been the one sitting here, listening to this instead of me, which would've been a good thing because she was always the... calmer one.

Brand: Time is relative, okay? It can stretch and it can squeeze, but... it can't run backwards. Just can't. The only thing that can move across dimensions, like time, is gravity.

Donald: I'm dropping Tom, then heading to town.
- You want to clean that up when you've finished praying to it?

Cooper: We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, that our destiny lies above us.

- Here.

- yes... the tiniest possibility of seeing Wolf again excites me.
- That doesn't mean I'm wrong.
- Honestly, Amelia... it might.
- TARS, chart a course for Dr. Mann's.

- Cooper! Cooper!
- I'm here!

- MAN'S VOICE: Step away!
Cooper: Don't shoot! I'm not armed.

Young: Why did you and mom name me after something that's bad?
Cooper: Well, we didn't.
Young: Murphy's law?

- Never mind.

- Three... two... one. Mark.

- Fire!

CASE: Lander 1, prepare to detach on my mark.
- Three, two... one. Mark.
TARS: Detach!
- AMELIA: Goodbye, TARS.
TARS: Goodbye, Dr. Brand.
- See you on the other side, Coop.
- See you there, Slick!

- TARS, give me the coordinates for NASA in binary.
- In binary. Roger. Feeding data.

- Dr. Brand and Edmunds...
- Why are you whispering? They can't hear you.
- Dr. Brand and Edmunds. They close?
- I wouldn't know.
- Is that 90 percent "wouldn't know" or 10 percent "wouldn't know"?
- I also have a discretion setting, Cooper.
- Aah.
- But not a poker face, Slick.

TARS: I have a cue light I can use to show you when I'm joking, if you like.
Cooper: That might help.
TARS: Yeah, you can use it to find your way back to the ship after I blow you out the airlock.
[cue light flashes]

Cooper: Hey TARS, what's your honesty parameter?
TARS: 90 percent.
Cooper: 90 percent?

- If I can find a way to transmit the quantum data I'll find in there... they might still make it.
- Let's just hope there's still someone there to save.

Dr. Brand: Not sure of what I'm more afraid of: them never coming back, or coming back to find we've failed.
Murph: Then let's succeed.

- No!
- You can't leave.
- You... No.
Murph: Dr. Brand, I'm sorry to tell you that your father died today. He had no pain.
- He was at peace.
- I'm very sorry for your loss.

- Grandpa said.
Cooper: Grandpa said, huh?
- Listen, all that matters is how you feel about it.
- I like what you do.
- I like our farm.
- You're gonna be great at it.

CASE: There's no point using fuel to chase...
- Analyze the Endurance's spin.
- Cooper, what are you doing?
- Docking.
CASE: Endurance rotation is 67, 68 RPM.

Cooper: What happens now?

Cooper: This world's a treasure, Don; but it's been telling us to leave for a while now.

Cooper: Dr. Mann there's a 50/50 chance your gonna kill yourself.
Dr. Mann: Those are the best odds I've had in years.

Brand: Oh shit. Oh shit!
Cooper: That one's moving away from us...
Brand: [struggling through the water] We need the recorder!
Cooper: [he looks in the other direction and sees a mounting wave towering thousands of feet over them] Brand, Doyle, back to the Ranger, now!

Young: What are you gonna do with it?
Cooper: I'm going to give it something socially responsible to do. Like drive a combine.
Young: Can't we just let it go? It wasn't hurting anybody.
Cooper: This thing needs to learn how to adapt, Murph. Like the rest of us.

Cooper: We used to look up at the sky and wonder at our place in the stars. Now we just look down, and worry about our place in the dirt.

- seemed like I should live with that decision. And I have.
- But today's my birthday.
- And it's a special one, because you told me...
- You once told me that when you came back, we might be the same age.
- And today I'm the age you were when you left.
- So it would be a real good time for you to come back.

- I got you suspended.
- What?
Mann: [OVER RADIO] Cooper.
- This is Cooper. Go.
- Coop, those combines you rebuilt went haywire.
- Just reset the controllers.
- I did that. Now you should come take a look.

Dr. Brand: I'm not afraid of death. I'm an old physicist - I'm afraid of time.

- I almost got it. Don't stop. Don't stop!
- Dad!
- Tom!
- You told me to keep driving.
- Well, I guess that answers the old "if I asked you to drive off a cliff" scenario.
- We lost it.
- No, we didn't.

TARS: Ninety percent.
- Ninety percent?
- Absolute honesty isn't always the most diplomatic, nor the... safest form of communication with emotional beings.

- We cannot survive here. I'm sorry!
- I'm sorry!

Brand: Cooper, you can't ask TARS to do this for us.
Cooper: He's a robot. So you don't have to *ask* him to do anything.
Brand: Cooper, you asshole!
Cooper: Sorry, you broke up a little bit there.
TARS: It's what we intended, Dr. Brand. It's our only chance to save the people on Earth. If I can find a way to transmit the quantum data I'll find in there, they might still make it.

- All right. Let's take it slow, sir.
- Nice and easy, Mr. Cooper.
- Remember, you're no spring chicken anymore.
- Actually, you are 124 years old.
- Take it slow, sir.
- You were, uh, extremely lucky.
- The Rangers found you with only minutes left in your oxygen supply.

- In case the ghost is trying to communicate.
- I'm trying Morse.
- Morse?
- Yeah.
- Dots and dashes, used...
- I know what Morse code is, Murph.
- I just don't think your bookshelf's trying to talk to you.

- Very graceful.
- No.
- But very efficient.
- What are you waiting for? Let's go!
- Go, go, go!
- Seven years per hour here.
- Let's make it count!

- Hello, CASE.
- Hello, TARS.
- All right, we're all set.
- All right, let's do it.

Cooper: Once you're a parent, you're the ghost of your children's future.

Cooper: You're ruling my son out for college now? The kid's fifteen.
Principal: Tom's score simply isn't high enough.
Cooper: What's your waistline? 32? With, what, a 33 inseam?
Principal: I'm not sure I see what you're getting at.
Cooper: You're telling me it takes two numbers to measure your own ass but only one to measure my son's future?

TARS: Cooper, they didn't bring us here to change the past.
Cooper: Say that again.
TARS: They didn't bring us here to change the past.
Cooper: [realizing] But they didn't bring us here at all. We brought ourselves. TARS, give me the coordinates for NASA, in binary.
TARS: In binary, roger, feeding data.
[Cooper creates the binary lines in the dust on Murphy's bedroom floor]
Murph: It's not a ghost... it's gravity.
Cooper: Don't you get it yet, TARS? I brought myself here! We're here to communicate with the three-dimensional world! We're the bridge! I thought they chose me. But they didn't choose me, they chose her!
TARS: For what, Cooper?
Cooper: To save the world! All of this, is one little girl's bedroom, every moment! It's infinitely complex! They have access, to infinite time and space, but they're not *bound* by anything! They can't find a specific place *in* time, they can't communicate. That's why I'm here. I'm gonna find a way to tell Murph, just like I found this moment.
TARS: How, Cooper?
Cooper: Love, TARS, love. It's just like Brand said. My connection with Murph, it is quantifiable. It's the key!
TARS: What are we here to do?
Cooper: Find how to tell her... The watch... The watch. That's it. We code the data into the movement of the second hand. TARS, translate the data into Morse and feed it to me.
TARS: Translating data to Morse. Cooper, what if she never came back for it?
Cooper: She will. She will.
Getty: [watching for Tom] Murph I can see his car! He's coming, Murph!
Murph: Okay. I'm coming down!
TARS: How do you know?
Cooper: Because I gave it to her.
Murph: [rushing downstairs with the watch] He came back! It was him! All this time, I didn't, I didn't know it was him! Dad's gonna save us!

- Cooper... they didn't bring us here to change the past.
- Say that again.
- They didn't bring us here to change the past.
- No, they didn't bring us here at all.
- We brought ourselves.

Cooper: Everybody ready to say goodbye to our solar system?
Romilly: To our galaxy.

Cooper: [whispering] Tell me something. Doctor Brand, and Edmonds...
TARS: Why are you whispering? They can't hear you.
Cooper: Doctor Brand and Edmonds, they close?
TARS: I wouldn't know.
Cooper: Is that a ninety percent wouldn't know, or ten percent wouldn't know?
TARS: I also have a discretion setting, Cooper.
Cooper: Ah. But not a poker face, huh?

- I'm sorry, I can't watch you go through this. I'm sorry.
- I thought I could, but I can't.
- I'm here. I'm here for you.
- Just listen to my voice, Cooper.
- I'm right here.
- You're not alone.

- I don't care much for this pretending we're back where we started.
- I want to know where we are.
- Where we're going.
- Mr. Cooper. The family's all in there.
- Yeah.
- Family?
- Yeah, they all came out to see her. She's been in cryo-sleep for almost two years.

Cooper: Okay. Now you need to tell me what your plan is to save the world.
Dr. Brand: We're not meant to save the world. We're meant to leave it.
Cooper: [looks up, sees space ships] Rangers.
Dr. Brand: The last components of our one versatile ship in orbit, the Endurance. Our final expedition.
Cooper: You sent people out there looking for a new home?
Dr. Brand: The Lazarus missions.
Cooper: That sounds cheerful.
Dr. Brand: Lazarus came back from the dead.
Cooper: Sure, but he had to die in the first place. There's not a planet in our solar system that can sustain life and the nearest star is over a thousand years away, I mean, that doesn't even qualify as futile. Where'd you send them?
Dr. Brand: Cooper, I can't tell you any more, unless you agree to pilot this craft. You're the best pilot we ever had.
Cooper: And I barely left the stratosphere.
Dr. Brand: This team never left the simulator. We need a pilot, and this is the mission that you were trained for.
Cooper: What, without even knowing it? An hour ago, you didn't even know I was alive and you were going anyway.
Dr. Brand: We had no choice. But something sent you here. They chose you.
Cooper: Well who's "they"?
[Dr. Brand does not answer]
Cooper: How long would I be gone?
Dr. Brand: Hard to know. Years.
Cooper: I've got kids, professor.
Dr. Brand: Get out there, and save them.

- No.
- No parent should have to watch their own child die.
- I have my kids here for me now.
- You go.
- Where?
- Brand.

Brand: You might have to decide between seeing your children again and the future of the human race.

- Cooper, you should have control.
- Control here.
- Communication with ring module active.
- WOMAN: Oh, wow.
TARS: That's initiate.
Cooper: Are we ready to spin?
- Just a sec.

CASE: Cooper, we're slipping towards Gargantua.
- Shall I use main engines?
- No.
- We got to let her slide as far as we can.

- Murph! Murph! Murph!
- Murph!
- No, no, no!
- Murph!
- Murph!
- No! No!

- What was that?
- The first handshake.
- We're...
- We're here.

- Nice and easy, Doyle. Nice and easy.
- I feel good.
- Take us home.
- Lock.
- Target locked.
Cooper: Well done.
- Okay, helmets on.
- Good job.

Cooper: Oh we are not prepared for this. We have the survival skills of a Boy Scout troop!
Brand: Well we got this far on our brains, further than any human in history.
Cooper: Well not far enough! And now we're stuck *here*, until there won't be anyone on Earth left to save!
Brand: I'm counting every minute, same as you, Cooper.

TARS: I wouldn't leave you behind... Dr. Brand.

Cooper: After you kids came along, your mom, she said something to me I never quite understood. She said, "Now, we're just here to be memories for our kids." I think now I understand what she meant. Once you're a parent, you're the ghost of your children's future.

- on an almost.
- I'm asking you to trust me.
- Find us a new home.
- And by the time you return...
- I will have solved the problem of gravity.
- I give you my word.

- It says, "Stay," Dad.
- Murph.
- You don't believe me.
- Look at the books! Look at this.
- It says, "Stay."
- Why...? You're not listening!
- It says, "Stay!"
- No, I'm coming back.
- When?

- Stop it!
- No. No!
- Dr. Mann, there's a 50-50 chance you're gonna kill yourself!
- Those are the best odds I've had in years.

- Don't you know who we are, Coop?
- No, professor, I don't.
- WOMAN: You know my father, Professor Brand.
- We're NASA.
- NASA?
Brand: NASA.
- The same NASA you flew for.

- the administration wants me to repeat Plant Pathology. Which sucks.
- But they said I could start
- Advanced Agriculture a year early.
- All right, I got to go, Dad.
- Hope you're safe up there.
Donald: Um, sorry, Coop.
- I asked Murph to say hi, but she's as stubborn as her old man.
- I'll try again next time.

Brand: Couldn't you've told her you were going to save the world?
Cooper: No. When you become a parent, one thing becomes really clear. And that's that you want to make sure your children feel safe. And that rules out telling a 10-year old that the world's ending.

- Get to the hatch!
- Go, go! Go!
- Shit.
- Manually overriding inside hatch!
- Cooper! Wait!
Cooper: The engines are flooded!
- I'm gonna have to shut her down.

- Travel safe, huh?
- Yeah.
- You look after our place for me, all right?
- All right?
- Uh-huh.
- Hey, can I use your truck while you're gone?
- You mean your truck?
- I'll make sure they bring it back.
- Look after my kids, Donald!

Young: Dad?
Cooper: Sorry, Murph. Go back to bed.
Young: I thought you were the ghost.
Cooper: There are no such things as ghosts, babe.
Young: Grandpa says you can get ghosts.
Cooper: Maybe that's because Grandpa is a little too close to being one himself. Go back to bed.

- Dash!
- Dash! Dash!
Mann: Murph!
- Murph, we don't have time for this!
- Come on!
[PANTING] Y.
- "Stay!"

Cooper: You're a scientist, Brand.
Brand: So listen to me when I say that love isn't something that we invented. It's... observable, powerful. It has to mean something.
Cooper: Love has meaning, yes. Social utility, social bonding, child rearing...
Brand: We love people who have died. Where's the social utility in that?
Cooper: None.
Brand: Maybe it means something more - something we can't yet understand. Maybe it's some evidence, some artefact of a higher dimension that we can't consciously perceive. I'm drawn across the universe to someone I haven't seen in a decade, who I know is probably dead. Love is the one thing we're capable of perceiving that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that, even if we can't understand it. All right Cooper. Yes. The tiniest possibility of seeing Wolf again excites me. That doesn't mean I'm wrong.
Cooper: Honestly, Amelia... it might.

- used his power source to keep the mission going.
- I thought I was alone before I shut him down.
- Would you like me to look at him?
- No. No. He needs a human touch.
- Dr. Brand, CASE is relaying a message for you from the comm station.
- Okay. Be right there. Excuse me.

CASE: This is fast for atmospheric entry.
- Should we use the thrusters to slow?
- No.
- I'm gonna use the Ranger's aerodynamics to save some fuel.
CASE: Air brake?
- We want to get down fast, don't we?
- We want to get there in one piece.
- Hang on.
CASE: Brand, Doyle, get ready.

TARS: [as Cooper repairs him] Settings. General settings. Security settings.
TARS: Honesty, new setting: ninety-five percent.
TARS: Confirmed. Additional settings.
Cooper: Humor, seventy-five percent.
TARS: Confirmed. Self destruct sequence in T minus 10, 9...
Cooper: Let's make that sixty percent.
TARS: Sixty percent, confirmed. Knock knock.
Cooper: You want fifty-five?

Cooper: We're still pioneers, we barely begun. Our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, cause our destiny lies above us.

Dr. Mann: Don't judge me, Cooper. You were never tested like I was. Few men have been.
