The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Movie Quotes

"The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" movie quotes bring the first book in "The Mortal Instruments" series by Cassandra Clare to the big screen in a fantasy-adventure film. Using a screenplay adapted by Jessica Postigo Paquette, "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" was directed by Harald Zwart and released in the United States on August 21, 2013.

In "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," Clary Fray (Lily Collins) is a seemingly ordinary teenage girl living in New York. Clary begins to question her surroundings and herself when she realizes that she can see things, people especially, that no one else can. Eventually, Clary confronts one of these people, Jace Wayland (Jamie Campbell Bower), to try to get more insight on what is going on only to learn way more than she imagined.

Jace and others, including Madame Dorothea (C. C. H. Pounder) and Hodge Starkweather (Jared Harris), explain to her that she and her mother, Jocelyn (Lena Headey), are not human, but rather shadowhunters, angel-human hybrids part of a secret world complete with mystical monsters and creatures. With little time to process this news, Clary is forced to embrace her true form quickly to help rescue her mother and the Mortal Cup, both of which were taken by enemy Valentine Morgenstern (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) before both are taken over by evil.

"The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" hits theaters just in time to join other summer 2013 hits like "Paranoia," "Kick-Ass 2," "We're the Millers, "Elysium," "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," "2 Guns," "Blue Jasmine," "The Wolverine," "The To Do List," "Only God Forgives," "Girl Most Likely," "Red 2," "R.I.P.D.," "Pacific Rim," "Grown Ups 2," "The Lone Ranger," "Despicable Me 2," "The Heat," "White House Down," "World War Z," "Man of Steel," "This Is the End," and "Olympus Has Fallen."

    All the Stories Are True

    Hodge Starkweather: "Everyday you live your life, ordinary, normal, but there's only so long you can hide from the truth. Everything you've heard about monsters, about nightmares, legends whispered around campfires, all the stories are true. Humanity is on the very brink of extinction."

    In speaking to Clary, Hodge explains how the worlds really work as compared to what she previously knew as reality. Hodge tells Clary that the truth is that she is not ordinary or normal and it's time she embrace that fact.

    You Don't Need to Encourage Him

    Alec Lightwood: "Jace thinks he needs to save the world, but you don't need to encourage him to do it."

    Alec tries to reason with Clary in hopes that she can talk Jace down from his plans to save the world. While everyone wants to keep the shadowhunters save, what Jace is attempting is extremely dangerous.

    She's Different

    Alec Lightwood: "What is it about her?"
    Jace Wayland: "She's different."
    Alec Lightwood: "She's gonna get us all killed."

    As Alec tries to point out, Jace will stop at nothing to take down the evil forces, even if that means taking risks that could have deadly consequences for his entire crew. To Alec, having Clary on their team is one of those risks.

    You Didn't See That?

    Clary Fray: [screams]
    Simon Lewis: "Hey, what is it?"
    Clary Fray: "You didn't see that?!"

    Clary is freaked out when she begins to see things others cannot see, like people who vanish into thin air. At first she thinks she's crazy but a semi-reasonable explanation for the events comes soon.

    A Shadowhunter... Like You

    Clary Fray: "I don't understand what any of this has to do with my mom."
    Madame Dorothea: "Your mother was a shadowhunter, like him… like you."

    The more Clary learns about this secret world of shadowhunters the more questions she has. Specifically, she wants to know how her mother is involved but again, the truth may shock her.
