Hawking (2004)
Synopsis: Stephen Hawking (Benedict Cumberbatch) contracts a degenerative disease while a doctoral student, but goes on to achieve worldwide acclaim as a physicist and author.

- The girl from the party.

The x-ray of your spine with the dye in shows

that you don't have anything pressing on your spinal cord.

- That's good isn't it?

- It's a process of elimination.

You were a team.

I mean you're both getting the Nobel Prize this evening.

I put him up for the job.

And they wouldn't let me in on an interview.

So I loitered around.

And when Bob and the interview committee came out

doing their handshakes

and thank you for coming and we'll let you know, I moved in.

You gave him the job, right?

You gave Bob the job, didn't you?

There was this kind of embarrassed pause,

so I told them straight.

Bob and I are gonna walk down the corridor right here

and right out that door right there.

And if you don't want Bob to have a job that he was born to do,

then you call it before we go through that door.

- Longest walk of my life.

- Sixty two paces.

And we never looked back.

- They won't tell me what they're thinking.

- Doctors don't.

- They don't know themselves yet.

- I'm a doctor, Isobel, I know what they're like.

- You're tropical disease expert, dad.

- I know doctors!

- What Isobel?

- Nothing.

I'll arrange for you to have a private room.


I'll stay on the ward like everyone else.

So, have you applied for Oxford or Cambridge?

They don't want me.

I was thinking of Westfield.

It's an all ladies college.

On the Burton model, I suppose.

And..and it's quite

Scrabble. Let's play scrabble.


He's twelve.

It was beautiful.

I came out of the woods and there it was.

A perfect piece of equipment.

The antenna.
