Tremors II: Aftershocks (1996) (V)
Grady: We're gonna haul his ass off to monster world.

Earl Bassett: [Grady and Earl have wrecked their truck and are stranded; however, they're excited as they've just caught a live graboid]
[to Kate over the radio]
Earl Bassett: Look, we need help. Will you tell Pedro to bring that big truck out here. It's got a crane on it, doesn't it?
Kate (White) Reilly: [over radio] Yeah. It's gonna take him hours to get there.
Grady: [Grady whoops in background]
[referring to the graboid]
Grady: We're gonna haul his ass off to Monster World!
Earl Bassett: WILL YOU SHUT UP AND GET OFF THE DAMN GROUND!

Grady: [Grady and Earl are discussing what they're gonna do with their money in the back of Earl's truck] I'm thinking big. I'm thinking theme park. Yeah, "Grady Hoover's World of Natural Wonders."
Grady: [the wind blows Grady's umbrella off the truck and jumps onto the ground to retrieve it] Or maybe Monster World, or Monster Land, or Worm World.
Earl Bassett: How 'bout Loony World. Seems to fit. Get off the ground!

Grady: [it's night, Grady and Earl are waiting on top of their stranded truck for Pedro to arrive, an explosion sounds in the distance]
[referring to Burt]
Grady: Jesus! He got another one.
Earl Bassett: That man never sleeps.
[two more explosions sound in the distance]
Burt Gummer: [over radio] Guys, Burt here. Doing a little night fishing. Got three of 'em on a cluster chare. I'd say we're about even now. Over.
Earl Bassett: Come on, Burt. This isn't a competition.
Burt Gummer: [over radio] Well, who's competing? I'm just saying the score is tied, that's all. Over.
Grady: Well, 'son', no it isn't, cuz we just caught a live one. How 'bout that.
Burt Gummer: [over radio] A live one? How in the hell...
Grady: Well, that's our little secret. Happy hunting, Burt.
[turns radio off]
Earl Bassett: [laughing] I'll bet that burned his skinny ass!

Grady: You mean they've been acting so smart because they're so stupid.

[about a groaning Graboid]
Earl Bassett: Must be sick.
Grady: Probably ate someone that didn't agree with it.

Earl Bassett: Oh man, this stuff tastes like toilet paper.
Grady: Earl, that is the toilet paper.

[Coyote howls]
Grady: Is that a Coyote?
Earl Bassett: Yup.
[it howls again]
Grady: Man he better keep quiet.
[another howl cut short by the sound of the coyote being eaten]
Earl Bassett: Yup.

Burt: It's gonna be big!
Grady: But is it gonna be today!

Earl Bassett: [loses at rock-paper-scissors] No!
[pauses]
Earl Bassett: Rock rips through paper!
Grady: Huh?

[hiding from the Shriekers, Earl, Grady, and Kate are on top of some containers, Burt is inside the scoop of a bulldozer]
Grady: Burt are you *sure* you don't have any more bullets? Did you check *all* your pockets?
Burt Gummer: You know, as I lie here, I can't help but notice... the reason I am out of nine millimeter rounds is that I was not properly briefed. And the reason for that is that this mission was not properly researched. If certain people had bothered to gather intelligence on the creatures before bumbling into the situation...
Earl Bassett: Burt, knock it off!
Burt Gummer: ...We wouldn't be down here with single-shot big bores when we should be packing full auto, preferably belt-fed!
[a Shrieker near Burt grunts loudly]
Burt Gummer: [to the Shrieker] Shut up!

Earl Bassett: [faced with a huge number of Graboids] We're gonna need some help!
Grady: Help? Who'd be crazy enough to wanna help us in this mess?
[scene cuts to Burt Gummer]

Grady: No offense Earl but you're nervous as a Chihuahua.
Earl Bassett: I'm not nervous, I'm alert.
Grady: Whatever.

Grady: [realizing Earl tricked him] Wait a minute!
[turns to Burt]
Grady: Paper wraps rock, doesn't it?
Burt Gummer: [sighs in annoyance] Paper ALWAYS wraps rock.
Grady: Damn!
