Quotes:
From Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971)
Chairman of the President's Committee of Inquiry: [testing Lewis's assertion that the apes can speak] What is your name?
Dr. Zira: Zira.
Chairman of the President's Committee of Inquiry: One might as well be talking to a parrot.
Dr. Zira: A parrot?
Chairman of the President's Committee of Inquiry: What did I tell you? Mechanical mimicry. Unique in an ape, vocally, without a doubt, but... does the other one talk?
Cornelius: Only when she lets me.
