Godzilla (2014)
Admiral William Stenz: This alpha predator of yours, doctor, do you really think he has a chance?
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: The arrogance of men is thinking nature is in our control and not the other way around. Let them fight.

Admiral William Stenz: [on mobilizing warheads] I know you don't agree with this. But my first priority is to safeguard our citizens.
[Serizawa shows Admiral Stenz a watch]
Admiral William Stenz: It's stopped.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: Yes. Eight-fifteen in the morning, August 6 1945.
Admiral William Stenz: Hiroshima.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: It was my father's.

Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: In 1954, the first time that a nuclear submarine ever reached the lower depths, it awakened something.
Vivienne Graham: The Americans first thought that it was the Russians. The Russians thought that it was them. All those nuclear tests in the '50s...? Not tests.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: They were trying to kill it. Him. An ancient alpha predator.
Vivienne Graham: Millions of years older than mankind. From an age when the Earth was ten times more radioactive than today. This animals and others like it consumed this radiation as a food source. As the levels on the surface naturally subsided these creatures adapted to live deeper in the oceans. Furter underground. Absorbing radiation from the planet's core. The organization we work for, Monarch, was established in the wake of this discovery. A multinational coalition formed in secrecy to search for him. Study him. Learn everything we could.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: We call him... Gojira.
Vivienne Graham: The top of the primordial ecosystem. A god, for all intents and purposes.
Ford Brody: A monster.

Admiral William Stenz: Doctor, what do you mean by "hunting"? You think it's chasing this M.U.TO.?
Admiral William Stenz: But if the M.U.TO. is his prey... The signal shows a call. Why call up a predator?
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: No, it didn't. I think Godzilla was only listening. The M.U.TO. was calling something else.

Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: Gojira may be the answer. I believe he's here to restore balance. He can defeat them.
Admiral William Stenz: And what? We just stand by and watch? I'm sorry, doctor. I can't take that risk.

Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: Nature has an order. A power to restore balance. I believe he is that power.

[looking at a fossil]
Vivienne Graham: Oh, my God. Is it possible? Is it him?
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: No. This is much older.

[watching the other MUTO wreck havoc on the news]
Vivienne Graham: It's almost 300 feet. It's much bigger than the other one.
Admiral William Stenz: This one doesn't have any wings.
Vivienne Graham: A different sex?
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: ...A female.
Vivienne Graham: THAT'S who he's been talking to.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: It must be a mating call. The female remained dormant until the male matured.
Vivienne Graham: Now they're seeking radiation... to reproduce!


Godzilla, King of the Monsters! (1956)
Dr. Serizawa: The Oxygen destroyer must not be used!
Ogata: If we do not defend ourselves from Godzilla now, what will become of us?
Dr. Serizawa: And what will become of us if a weapon, such as I now have, falls into the wrong hands?
Ogata: Then you have a responsibility no man has ever faced. You have your fear which might become reality. And you have Godzilla, which *is* reality.


Godzilla (1954)
Daisuke Serizawa-hakase: If my device can serve a good purpose, i would announce it to everyone in the world! But in its current form, it's just a weapon of horrible destruction. Please understand, Ogata!
Hideto Ogata: I understand. But if we don't use your device against Godzilla, what are we going to do?
Daisuke Serizawa-hakase: Ogata, if the oxygen destroyer is used even once, politicians from around the world will see it. Of course, they'll want to use it as a weapon. Bombs versus bombs, missiles versus missiles, and now a new superweapon to throw upon us all! As a scientist - no, as a human being - I can't allow that to happen! Am I right?
Hideto Ogata: Then what do we do about the horror before us now? Should we just let it happen? If anyone can save us now, Serizawa, you're the only one! If... you use the device to defeat Godzilla, unless you reveal what you have done, who will know about it?
Daisuke Serizawa-hakase: Ogata, humans are weak animals. Even if I burn my notes, the secret will still be in my head. Until I die, how can I be sure I won't be forced by someone to make the device again?
