Leonard Shelby (Guy Pearce): I always thought the joy of reading a book is not knowing what happens next.
Leonard: Beg my wife's forgiveness, before I blow your brains out.
Leonard: Memory can change the shape of a room; it can change the color of a car. And memories can be distorted. They're just an interpretation, they're not a record, and they're irrelevant if you have the facts.
Leonard: I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning... even if I can't remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world's still there.
John Edward 'Teddy' Gammell (Joe Pantoliano): You know, I've had more rewarding relationships... but at least I can keep telling the same jokes.
Leonard: She's gone and the present is trivia which I scribble on these fucking notes.
Leonard: We all need mirrors to remind ourselves who we are. I'm no different.
Leonard: Facts, not memories. That's how you investigate. I know, it's what I used to do.
Leonard: So how.. How can I heal? How am I supposed to heal if I can't feel time?
Leonard: Remember Sammy Jankis.
Leonard: I never said he was faking.
Leonard: I've probably burned truck loads of your stuff before. Can't remember to forget you.
Natalie (Carrie-Anne Moss): What's the last thing that you do remember?
Leonard: My wife...
Natalie: That's sweet.
Leonard: Okay, what am I doing?...I'm chasing this guy...Nope, he's chasing me.
Natalie: Is that what your little note says? It must be hard living your life off a couple of scraps of paper. You mix your laundry list with your grocery list you'll end up eating your underwear for breakfast.
Leonard: These tracks are just a few days old.
Teddy: What are you, Pocahontas?
Teddy: You don't want the truth. You make up your own truth.
Teddy: You're not a killer. That's why you're so good at it.
Teddy: So you lie to yourself to be happy - there's nothing wrong with that, we all do it. Who cares if there's a few little details you'd rather not remember.
Leonard: My wife deserves revenge, whether I know about it or not.
Leonard: Now... where was I?
