Jurassic Park (1993)
[repeated line]
Ray Arnold: Hold on to your butts.

Muldoon: What about the lysine contingency? We could put that into effect!
Dr. Ellie Sattler: What's that?
John Hammond: That is absolutely out of the question.
Ray Arnold: The lysine contingency is intended to prevent the spread of the animals in case they ever get off the island. Dr. Wu inserted a gene that makes a single faulty enzyme in protein metabolism. The animals can't manufacture the amino acid lysine. Unless they're continually supplied with lysine by us, they'll slip into a coma and die.
Dr. Ellie Sattler: How could we cut off the lysine?
Ray Arnold: No real trick to it. Just stop running the program, leaving them unattended.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: How long before they become comatose?
Ray Arnold: It would be totally painless - they'd just slip into unconsciousness and die.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: How long until they slip into unconsciousness?
Ray Arnold: Hmm... seven days, more or less.
Dr. Ellie Sattler: Seven days? Seven days? Oh, that's great. Clever!
Dr. Ian Malcolm: That'll be a first - man and dinosaur all die together. John's plan.
John Hammond: People. Are. Dying! Mr. Arnold, will you please shut down the system.
Ray Arnold: OK, but... you asked for it. Hold on to your butts!
[switches the mainframe off]

Ray Arnold: [taking over Dennis Nedry's terminal which is covered in junk food wrappers] Look at this work station!
[pushes the trash on the floor]
Ray Arnold: What a complete slob!
Muldoon: The raptor fences aren't out, are they?
Ray Arnold: No, no. They're still on.
John Hammond: Why the hell would he turn the other ones off?

Ray Arnold: [alarms start going off in the control room] Fences are failing all over the park.
John Hammond: Find Nedry! Check the vending machines!

Ray Arnold: [trying to bring the system back on-line] Access main program. Access main security. Access main program grid.
[the computer denies him finally saying, "You didn't say the magic word!"]
Dennis Nedry: [on computer] Uh uh uh! You didn't say the magic word! Uh uh uh! Uh uh uh!
[repeating uh uh uh]
Ray Arnold: Please! God damn it! I hate this hacker crap!

John Hammond: Robert, I... I wonder if perhaps you would be good enough to take a gas jeep, and bring back my grandchildren.
Muldoon: Sure.
Dr. Ellie Sattler: I'm going with him.
Ray Arnold: John? John? I can't get Jurassic Park back online without Dennis Nedry.

Ray Arnold: We have all the problems of a major theme park and a major zoo and the computer's not even on its feet yet.

John Hammond: So much for our first tour: two no-shows and one sick Triceratops.
Ray Arnold: It could have been worse, John. A lot worse.

Ray Arnold: Um... It's OK.
[looking at one of the computers in the control room]
Ray Arnold: Look, see that. It's on. It worked.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: What... what do you mean, it worked? Everything's still off.
Ray Arnold: Well, maybe the shutdown tripped the circuit breakers. All we have to do is turn them back on. Reboot a few systems in here. Telephones. Security doors, and a half dozen others but it worked. The system's ready.
Muldoon: Where are the breakers?
Ray Arnold: Maintenance shed. At the other end of the compound. Three minutes, and I can have power back on in the entire park.
John Hammond: Well, just to be safe I want everyone in the emergency bunker, until Mr Arnold returns, and the whole system's up and running again.

Ray Arnold: The boat for the mainland will be leaving at 19.00. All personnel be at the dock no later than 18.45. No exceptions.
