I knew you guys were bottle-fed Yeah, there’s not a helluva lot I can do about it, pal You see what I’m up against! His Vietnamese neighbor ate his dog

You’re immortal I’m drowning! we ask you, Heavenly Father I’m alive! I can breathe Crude and slow. Your attack was no better than that of a clumsy child This cannot be It’s the devil’s work You cannot die, MacLeod Accept it – I hate you! – Good That is a perfect way to start Tell me, how did it happen for God’s sake? Why does the sun come up? Or are the stars just pinholes in the curtain of night? Who knows? what I do know is: Because you were born different men will fear you, try to drive you away like the people in your village You must learn to conceal your special gift and harness your power
until the time of the Gathering What Gathering? When only a few of us are left, we will feel an irresistible pull towards a faraway land to fight for the prize Come on! Faster! Never lose your temper If your head comes away from your neck, it’s over Never overextend your thrust You’re vulnerable and off balance Connor Heather, please! If it came down to just us two, would you take my head?

Here’s dinner I’ll be off now I fancy buying me a new dress Oh, you little devils… go on! She is beautiful You must leave her, brother MacLeod, I was born 2,437 years ago In that time I’ve had 3 wives The last was Shakiko, a Japanese princess Her father, Masamune, a genius, made this for me In 593 B.C It’s unique, like his daughter when Shakiko died, I was shattered I would save you that pain Please, let Heather go When we first met you felt ill. Remember? That wasn’t the first time you felt that sensation, was it? No when the MacLeods fought the Frasers I met a black knight I felt it then Only it was different. More painful That black knight was Kurgan It’s because of him I sought you out who is Kurgan? Where does he come from? The Kurgans were an ancient people from the steppes of Russia For amusement they threw children into pits with dogs to fight for meat Kurgan is the strongest of all the immortals He is the perfect warrior If he wins the prize, mortal man would suffer an eternity of darkness How do you fight such a savage? with heart, faith and steel In the end there can be only one – It must have been very dangerous – I loved her very much, Heather She was the only thing on my mind Not danger So holding the rose in my teeth, I climbed up on the rooftop, lowered a rope and swung in through the open window – Unfortunately, the lady was not there – what did you do? Well, I introduced myself to the lady who was there She was most helpful Would you like some more wine? Yes, please – Heather, get out – What’s wrong? Out! Kurgan! Ramírez The Highlander where is he? – You’re too late. I’ve prepared him – You waste your time! It hurts? Now you die!
You cannot win, Ramírez I’m the strongest! My cut has improved your voice Yes! Hurts? Who is the woman? She’s mine Not for much longer Tonight you sleep in hell There can be only one! Hello, pretty! – I’d like to speak to Mr. Nash – I’m sorry, he’s not here May I call him at home? I have to talk to him today It’s impossible – Good Morning – This is Brenda Wyatt, Mr. Nash We’ve already met, Rachel What can I do for you? I’d like some advice Do you take advice? – That depends – Advice about what? What can you tell me about a lunatic hacking away with a broadsword in 1985? Not much what about a Japanese sword dated 600 B.C.? I don’t deal in exotic weapons Can I show you something in 18th century silver?
That’s not why I came here and you know it – Do you cook? – Why? I thought we might have dinner – Did you? – Yes So, I’m standing there and there’s Brenda! Our little Brenda You sure it was Brenda? She was talking to Nash in his shop – what are you looking at, Rachel? – The eyes in the back of your head People are asking about you What am I supposed to say? Tell them I’m immortal Attention! Four men over here! Quiet Don’t be afraid – What’s your name? – Rachel – What happened? – Everybody is dead I’m like you. I’m alone Come with me, Rachel – You’re alive! why didn’t you die? – It’s a kind of magic – You should be dead! – Move! No! You’ll have to shoot me first Whatever you say, Jack You’re the master race Let’s go That was a long time ago Listen to me for one moment, please You can’t hide your feelings from me I’ve known you too long – What feelings? – How about loneliness? I’m not lonely – I’ve got everything I need right here – Oh no, you don’t You refuse to let anyone love you Love is for poets You’re such a romantic, Rachel You always were Just a minute! Good evening Do you want to dine in the hall, or shall we step inside? Come in May I take your coat? – No thanks – what? – I’ll hold on to it – Oh, fine – Where are you going? – I forgot my earrings Make yourself a drink There are glasses in the bar Do you know what you’re doing? I like your place, Brenda
I’ve only been here 3 months I’m still clearing it up – Interesting view – What did you say? I said, “Interesting view. ” Isn’t it great? You never told me what you do for a living I work for the Metropolitan Museum in Aquisitions That explains your interest in ancient weapons Right Especially the Samurai Very nice – Shall we have a toast? – Yes Brandy Bottled in 1783 Wow, that’s old 1783 was a very good year Mozart wrote his Great Mass The Montgolfier Brothers went up in their first balloon And England recognized the independence of the United States Is that right? Yes what’s that? – It’s for you – Can I open it? If you like You bastard! Where did you find this? I have an extensive library Odd thing, your bio doesn’t mention the Met It says you work for the police In forensics – Are you and Moran trying to set me up? – I don’t work for Moran Then why does that bald policeman sit outside and watch your apartment? You remember him Moran’s had him tailing me what’re you gonna do? The question is what’re you gonna do? Turn off the tape or shoot me? I’m not looking for a killer but for the sword used on Fasil I found pieces of it under the Garden – I only want to see the Samurai – Why? Because it’s not supposed to exist! I dated some of the blade at 600 B.C The metal had been folded 200 times They only did that in the Middle Ages! Where the hell did it come from? If I could verify its existence, it would be like the discovery of a 747 a thousand years before the Wright Brothers ever flew This is crazy wait a minute, Nash! I want some answers You want…? Don’t you ever think about anything except what you want? You must leave her, brother Heather!

Shall we go on? I think we should have a party – Oh no! I remember the last time we had a party – Really, when was that? It was 1783 1783 Oh yes, your famous duel on Boston Common You were drunk.

Okay, for someone who had 3 feet of steel in the gut I understand you saw the guy who stuck you? You kidding me, man? Is that him? No – Quit kidding! It was dark! – The freak was trying to kill me! I’ll never forget his face. He had a scar across his neck. That’s not him Shit! – Depressed? – Yeah Don’t go on about “depressed. ” I got me a 357, I got me a trunk load of shotguns, 3 big bore rifles and ammo up to my ass I’m not safe I can’t protect myself! Take it easy! That weirdo, he stood up after I’d put enough lead in him to drop a rhino Do you think you could work with one of our artists, – maybe come up with a picture of this guy? – Sure, sure, yes Take it easy, pal – Hey, cop! – Yes?

You kidding, Tony? You know cops can’t read what does “incompetent” mean? That mayor calls me at 2 o’clock in the morning! I don’t answer the phone anymore what does “baffled” mean? Karen Joan Nash
Yeah, I remember this one I was practicing in Syracuse; didn’t get many of these What? Unwed mothers Nowadays, that’s no big deal Back then in Syracuse it was a stoning offense What happened? – She had the baby and she died – Nash was illegitimate? Oh, yes. He was illegitimate For about a minute and a half He died right after she did He died? Hello, Brenda Last night I went through the deeds to Nash’s house in Hudson Street, back through the five previous owners to the original: Montague in 1796 In all five instances, Montague through Nash, I found a death certificate for a kid with the same name who died at birth, years before he pretended to sign for his inheritance Isn’t there any heat in here? No, heat is bad for the circuits Now, just in case there’s any doubt what you’ve got is a guy who’s been creeping around since at least 1700; pretending to croak every once in a while; leaving all these goods to kids who’ve been corpses for years and assuming their identities That’s not possible Late extra! Cops release Headhunter picture! Reward offered! Headhunter revealed! For you, my bonny Heather Happy birthday And for you, Juan Ramírez Take care of her, you overdressed haggis Kastagir is gone Only you and I remain Nice to see you, Kurgan Who cuts your hair? I’m in disguise This way no one will recognize me I do – what do you want? – Your head And the prize Watch Happy Halloween, ladies! Nuns! No sense of humor Ramírez’s blade did not cut deeply enough
He was right about you. You’re slime Ramírez was an effete snob He died on his knees I took his head and raped his woman before his blood was even cold I see! Ramírez lied She was not his woman She was your woman, and she never told you I wonder why Perhaps I gave her something you never could and secretly she yearned for my return Holy ground, Highlander! Remember what Ramírez taught you You can’t stay in here forever You are weak, Highlander You will always be weaker than I I’ll be out front Goodbye, MacLeod we will meet soon enough This is the house of God People are trying to pray You’re disturbing them He cares about these helpless mortals?

I’m afraid that’s impossible Mr. Nash is Mr. Nash is dead, Miss Ellenstein! – What are you doing here? – Looking for a dead guy named Nash He died at birth in Syracuse Alright Come on Are the claymores real?
