Matthew Kellog Quotes
|Season 2 / Episode 2: - Split Second|
Matthew Kellog: Incredible.
Alec Sadler: What do you want?
Matthew Kellog: You know who I am? Right. Well, believe it or not, I know a little bit about who you are as well. Maybe even more than you know about yourself.
Alec Sadler: Look, if Kiera sent you here to talk me into whatever...
Matthew Kellog: No, Kiera didn't send me. You know I- I had a job like this, once, way back - or is that "way forward"? - mopping floors and cleaning toilets. Good, honest work my father called it. I hated that job but I guess it did teach me something.
Alec Sadler: What's that?
Matthew Kellog: Well, first off, money and power doesn't mean your shit doesn't stink. More importantly, the only thing separating me and the future I wanted was will. I had the talent and the ambition, all I needed was a chance. The problem is, of course, you're rarely given that chance; more often than not you've got to take it. So one day, on my knees cleaning up where some idiot had missed with his piss, I did.
Alec Sadler: And what did you do?
Matthew Kellog: I quit. I scratched and clawed and willed myself into my own business. I put all that hard work into Kellog Incorporated.
Alec Sadler: And here you are today... you've come a long way.
Matthew Kellog: That's one way to put it.
Alec Sadler: Look, what does any of this have to do with me?
Matthew Kellog: Oh, I don't know. Let's just say that both of our futures rely on your own will. All you have to do is, is look down and realize...
Matthew Kellog: [whispering] that you're on your knees too.
Matthew Kellog: Only difference is, you're... a... genius. Anyway, listen, I'm uh, I'm lookin' to set up a new venture, cutting edge stuff. Also looking for talented visionaries to do visionary work. You know, mold the future, all that jazz. Hey, money is no object.
Manager Duncan: Uh, are you being taken care of, sir?
Matthew Kellog: Why yes, thank you. Alec here is taking very good care of me. He knows his stuff! You know something, I'd be careful if I were you. 'Cause someone might just, uh, just come along and... and poach him away.
Manager Duncan: Wonderful. Uh, have a... good day sir. Um, Alec, uh, when you're done with this customer, can you drop by my office? My printer's jammed.
Matthew Kellog: Printer jams. How novel. You know there's no paper in the future? Or should I say, "no future in paper"?
Matthew Kellog: Drop by for a chat unless you've made up your mind. In-credible.
