The Blob (1958)
Lieutenant Dave: Just because some kid smacks into your wife on the turnpike doesn't make it a crime to be 17 years old.

[On the radio to Washington]
Lieutenant Dave: I think you should send us the biggest transport plane you have, and take this thing to the Arctic or somewhere and drop it where it will never thaw.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Dave: At least we've got it stopped.
Steve Andrews: Yeah, as long as the Arctic stays cold.

Steve Andrews: Dave! Doc Hallen's been killed!
Lieutenant Dave: Doc Hallen? What happened?
Steve Andrews: It's over at his place! You've gotta come now!
Lieutenant Dave: Now wait a minute, Steve. Tell us what happened.
Steve Andrews: I'm trying to tell you - now this thing has killed the Doc.
Sgt. Jim Bert: Well what was it? Out with it, kid!
Steve Andrews: Well it's kind of a - kind of a mass. It keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Lieutenant Dave: Come on, Steve, make sense.
Steve Andrews: I know, I know! Look, Dave, you gotta see this thing to believe what I'm telling you.
Sgt. Jim Bert: Maybe this thing you saw was a - monster?
Steve Andrews: Yeah, maybe it was. I don't know.
Lieutenant Dave: Hold on, Jim. Now what is this, Steve? A little while ago it was driving backwards, now it's monsters.
Jane Martin: He's not making it up, Dave, honest!
Steve Andrews: Dave, I'm not kidding you. I swear, come out to the Doc's. You can see it for yourself.
Sgt. Jim Bert: You're crazy if you go. Can't you see it's a gag?
Lieutenant Dave: He says Doc Hallen's dead, Jim. We've got to check it out.

Steve Andrews: [trying to get everybody's attention] Listen, now listen to me, everybody, this town is in danger. Now, several people have been killed already! Now we - we had to make this noise so you would listen to us, so we could warn you!
Man: If we're in trouble, where're the police?
Sgt. Jim Bert: [sees Steve] You, boy, this time you really hanged yourself.
Steve Andrews: Now, look, Sarge. Just give me a chance to talk to them, that's all.
Sgt. Jim Bert: I don't know what kind of stunt it is you're pulling here, but whatever it is, it's going to stop right now!
Officer Ritchie: Here comes Dave!
Lieutenant Dave: What's going on here, Jim? Steve!
Steve Andrews: Dave, make them listen to me. There IS a monster! We saw it again at dad's store, and it's bigger now!
Sgt. Jim Bert: Your story's gotten bigger now, kid.
Steve Andrews: Dave, look at me! Do I look like somebody's playing a practical joke? Am I laughing, or am I scared stiff?
Lieutenant Dave: He's telling the truth.

Lieutenant Dave: Mrs. Porter, did you hear any gunshots tonight?
Mrs. Porter: I sure did, tonight and every other night. The people downstairs have them old movies on their televisions. There's always some shooting or screaming.

Sgt. Jim Bert: [comes out of the market where Steve told everyone the Blob was] There's nobody in here but us monsters...
Steve Andrews: [a screaming crowd comes running around the corner] Dave! It's at the theater!
Lieutenant Dave: [runs into the theater with a shotgun; after firing three shots, retreats as Jim prepares to go in] Don't go in, Jim! This won't do any good! It's the most horrible thing I've ever seen in my life. Come on, we've got to clear this area!
