(Russian soldier): German! Come out with your hands up!
(Szpilman): Don’t shoot, I’m Polish! I’m Polish!
(Russian soldier): What’s with the fucking coat?
(Szpilman): I’m cold…
Henryk: You know what’s funny? You’re funny.. with that ridiculous tie.
Wladyslaw: My tie? What does my tie have to do with anything? I need this tie for my work.
Henryk: Your work… yes, playing the piano for the parasites in the ghetto. They don’t give a damn about people suffering.
Wladyslaw: And you blame me for their apathy, right?
Henryk: I do because I see it everyday. They don’t even notice what’s going on around them.
Father: I blame the Americans..
Wladyslaw: For what? For my tie?
I blame the Americans.
For what, for my tie?
I don’t know how to thank you.
I’m not leaving. Can’t I take my chances here?
If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? (Karley)
Look, look. If I’m going to die, I prefer to die in my own home. I’m staying put.
Please, don’t shoot! I’m Polish!
Sometimes i forget which side of the wall I’m on.
This is absurd.
Wladyslaw Szpilman: I don’t know how to thank you.
Captain Wilm Hosenfeld: Thank God, not me. He wants us to survive. Well, that’s what we have to believe.
Wladyslaw Szpilman: I know this is an awkward time to say this, but I wish I knew you better.
Wladyslaw Szpilman: It’s an official decree, no Jews allowed in the parks.
Dorota: What, are you joking?
Wladyslaw Szpilman: No, I’m not. I would suggest we sit down on a bench, but that’s also an official decree, no Jews allowed on benches.
Dorota: This is absurd.
Wladyslaw Szpilman: So, we should just stand here and talk, I don’t think we’re not allowed to do that.
Wladyslaw Szpilman: Its too small! There’s 400,000 of us in Warsaw!
Henryk Szpilman: No, there’s 360,000. So it will be easy.
Wladyslaw Szpilman: They all want to be better Nazis than Hitler.
Wladyslaw Szpilman: [taking off his watch] Here, sell this. Food is more important than time.
You know what’s funny, you’re funny with that ridiculous tie.
My tie, what does my tie have to do with anything?
[Szpilman is discovered by the Polish army, wearing the German dress coat given him by Capt. Hosenfeld]
Russian Soldier: Why the fucking coat?
Wladyslaw Szpilman: I’m cold.
