Dr. Alan Grant: [finding egg shells] Oh my God. Do you know what this is? This is a dinosaur egg. The dinosaurs are breeding.
Tim: But Grandpa said all the dinosaurs were girls.
Dr. Alan Grant: Amphibian DNA.
Lex: What's that?
Dr. Alan Grant: Well, on the tour, the film said they used frog DNA to fill in the gene sequence gaps. They mutated the dinosaur genetic code and blended it with that of a frog's. Now, some West African frogs have been known to spontaneously change sex from male to female in a single sex environment. Malcolm was right. Look...
[we see a trail of baby dinosaur footprints]
Dr. Alan Grant: Life found a way.

Dr. Alan Grant: Hmm. I'll stay awake.
Lex: All night?
Dr. Alan Grant: [reassuringly] All night.

Lex: [Grant and the kids are climbing the perimeter fence] Timmy, I bet I can climb over the top and get on the other side before you can even get to the top.

[They're feeding leafy branches to a docile Brachiosaurus]
Lex: Can I touch it?
Dr. Alan Grant: Sure. Just think of it as... kind of a big cow.

Lex: [Lex switched on a flashlight, attracting the unwanted attention of the T-Rex] I'm sorry!

Lex: Timmy!
Dr. Alan Grant: Tim!
[the T-Rex tries to push the car with Tim inside over an embankment]

Lex: [the T-Rex is roaring in the distance] Are you hearing this?

Lex: [Brachiosaurs hearing Grant imitate they're singing look up in his direction] Sh. Sh. Don't let the monsters come over here.
Dr. Alan Grant: They're not monsters, Lex. They're just animals. And these are herbivores.

[Gennaro gets out the car]
Lex: He left us! He left us!

Lex: I like cows.
[to a Brachiosaur]
Lex: Come on, girl. I'm here, girl. Come on.
[the Brachiosaur sneezes on Lex]
Tim: God bless you!

Lex: [after being sneezed on by a Brachiosaur] Yuck!
Tim: Oh, great. Now she'll never try anything anymore. She'll just sit in her room, and never come out, and play on her computer.

Dr. Alan Grant: [looking at a dinosaur herd] Tim. Tim, can you tell me what they are?
Tim: They're, Gal... uh... uh, Galli... uh, Gallimimus.
