Swiss Army Man movie quotes tell the story of a hopeless man on a deserted island who befriends a corpse. The comedy-drama was written and directed by Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, also known as Daniels. After premiering at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, Swiss Army Man opened theatrically on June 24, 2016.

In Swiss Army Man, Hank (Paul Dano) finds himself stranded alone on a deserted island. With little hope of survival, he attempts suicide by hanging but just before going through with it, Hank spots a dead body that has washed ashore. Hank pulls the body from the shore through the woods and into a cave where he begins talking to it. Surprisingly, the body, Manny (Daniel Radcliffe), begins talking back.

But that's just one of Manny's many special powers, including acting as a miniature fart-powered boat. Together, Hank and Manny form quite the bond and go on many adventures across the island. While it's still unknown if Manny's abilities are real, or Hank is just hallucinating from starfish, the friendship changes both of them for life.

Swiss Army Man brings some levity into theaters already showing other movies like Finding Dory, Central Intelligence, Genius and Now You See Me 2.

Hank: Back in civilization, there's seven billion other living people on the planet just running around and blinking and breathing and eating and you used to be one of them. You were probably just looking for happiness. That's what everyone does. This is what you look like when you are happy.
Manny: Happy
Hank: You look for someone who will make you happy, a friend, a girlfriend or a dog. Good boy
Manny: Good boy
Hank: Sometimes, you might be lucky enough to bump into the one person you want to spend the rest of your life with and that is love.

Hank explains to Manny that everyone in life is simply looking for happiness, whether that comes from a friend, partner or pet. While he doesn't come out and say that Manny is his happiness, the joy Hank gets from their adventures sure points that way.

Manny: When I get back home, I'm going to show Sarah how much I care about her every single day. Whatever she wants, when she's thirsty or whatever, she can drink my spit. And then she can ride my gas to wherever she wants to go.
Hank: You can't use your gas in front of other people.
Manny: What? Why not?
Hank: Because it's weird. People don't like other people's farts.
Manny: Is that why you don't fart in front of me?
Hank: No, I just like to do it alone or I hold it in. That's what you're supposed to do.
Manny: That's so sad. That's so sad. What are we even going back home for? It sounds like you're not allowed to do anything back there.

Manny explains how he wants to give his all to lady friend Sarah when he gets back home. But when Hank tells him that things like farting are not socially acceptable, Manny thinks going home sounds pretty lame.
