Here are the best quotes from "The Maze Runner," which brought the best-selling novel of the same name to the big screen in this sci-fi action thriller. Wes Ball directed the movie using a screenplay Noah Oppenheim adapted from the book by James Dashner and opened in theaters on September 19, 2014.

In "The Maze Runner," Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) wakes up in a strange place with no memory of life before. He learns that he's among other teen boys in a place called The Glade, which is an enclosed area surrounded by steep walls, one of which opens each morning. The area that opens to reveal a maze, in which many have attempted to use as a means to escape The Glade but none have survived.

Despite the stern disagreement from others like Alby (Aml Ameen), Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), Minho (Ki Hong Lee), Gally (Will Poulter) and Chuck (Blake Cooper), Thomas is determined to try the maze himself, knowing that he can crack the code and be freed. So when another teen arrives, surprisingly a female, Teresa (Kaya Scodelario), Thomas gains an ally on his missions to escape.
