Jake Sully: [Making a video log] Do I have to do this now? Like, I really need to get some rack.
Dr. Grace Augustine: Yes now, while it's still fresh.
Jake Sully: Okay, uh... location: shack.

Selfridge: [In the tech room, Selfridge putts a golf ball into a mug and laughs] You see that?
Worker: Yes sir!
Selfridge: No you didn't, you were looking at the monitor. I love this putter, Ronnie! I love this putter!
Dr. Grace Augustine: Parker. You know, I used to think it was benign neglect, but now I see that you are intentionally screwing me.
Selfridge: Grace, you know, I enjoy our little talks.
[He putts the ball again, it's about to go in the mug but Grace kicks the mug away]
Dr. Grace Augustine: [Deadpan] Oops.

Dr. Grace Augustine: Is the avatar safe?
Jake Sully: Yeah, Doc, it's safe, and you are not gonna believe where I am!

Dr. Max Patel: Grace, this is Jake Sully.
Jake Sully: Ma'am.
Dr. Grace Augustine: Yeah, yeah, I know who you are and I don't need you. I need your brother. You know, the PhD who trained for 3 years for this mission.
Jake Sully: He's dead. I know it's a big inconvenience for everyone.
Dr. Grace Augustine: How much lab training have you had?
Jake Sully: I dissected a frog once.
Dr. Grace Augustine: Ya see, ya see? They're just pissing on us without even giving us the courtesy of calling it rain. I'm going to Selfridge.
Dr. Max Patel: Grace. No, I don't think...
Dr. Grace Augustine: No, man, this is such bullshit! Gonna kick his corporate butt. He has no business sticking his nose in *my* department.

Dr. Grace Augustine: So you just figured you'd come here, to the most hostile environment known to men, with no training of any kind, and see how it went? What was going through your head?
Jake Sully: Maybe I was sick of doctors telling me what I couldn't do.

Corporal Lyle Wainfleet: [Jake gets down from the ship with a gun. Wainfleet follows]
Dr. Grace Augustine: [to Wainfleet] Stay with the ship. One idiot with a gun is enough.
Corporal Lyle Wainfleet: You the man, Doc.

[They find a Hammerhead Titanothere]
Dr. Grace Augustine: Don't shoot! Don't shoot. You'll piss him off.
Jake Sully: It's already pissed off.
Dr. Grace Augustine: Jake, that armor's too thick. Trust me. It's a territorial threat display. Do not run or he'll charge.
Jake Sully: What do I do? Dance with it?
Dr. Grace Augustine: Just hold your ground.
[the Hammerhead Titanothere charges and Jake run towards him and yells to scare him. He goes away once seeing the Thanator]
Jake Sully: Ha, ha! Yeah, come on! What you got! Oh yeah, who's bad? That's right. Yeah, that's what I'm talkin' about, bitch. That's right, get your punk ass back to mommy. Yeah? Yeah, you got nothin'. You keep runnin'. Why don't you bring some of your friends, huh?
[Turns around and sees an angry Thanator standing in front of him]
Jake Sully: [to Grace] What about this one? Run? Don't run? What?
Dr. Grace Augustine: Run! Definitely run!

[Grace is showing pictures of the Na'vi to Jake so he remembers them]
Dr. Grace Augustine: Okay, let's run through them again.
Jake Sully: [Sees a picture] Mo'at. Dragon lady.
[Sees next picture]
Jake Sully: Eytukan.
Dr. Grace Augustine: [Says the name correctly] Ey-tu-"kahn". He's the clan leader. But she's the spiritual leader. Like a shaman.
Jake Sully: Got it.
[Sees next picture]
Jake Sully: Tah-soo-tey.
Dr. Grace Augustine: [Says the name correctly] Tsu'tey.
Jake Sully: Tsu'tey.
Dr. Grace Augustine: He'll be the next clan leader.
Jake Sully: [Sees next picture] Neytiri.
Dr. Grace Augustine: She'll be the next "Tsahik". They become a mated pair.
Jake Sully: So who's this Eywa?
Norm Spellman: Who's Eywa? Only their deity! Their goddess, maker of all living things. Everything they know! You'd know this if you've had any training whatsoever.
Jake Sully: [Shows him Neytiri's picture] Who's got a date with the chief's daughter?
Norm Spellman: Oh, come on!
Dr. Grace Augustine: [to Jake and Norm] Knock it off you two. Village life starts early.
[to Jake]
Dr. Grace Augustine: Don't do anything unusually stupid.
[Jake grins as Grace rolls her eyes at him before closing the pod]

[Jake and Grace see Mo'at walking towards them with a knife]
Dr. Grace Augustine: Mo'at, no!
Moat: [pleads with Jake] If you are one of us, help us!
[Mo'at cuts Jake and Grace loose]

Dr. Grace Augustine: Don't play with that. You'll go blind.

Dr. Grace Augustine: [Mortally wounded, realizing she's at the tree of souls] I need to get some samples.

Dr. Grace Augustine: [after getting shot by Quaritch in the airship as they're flying away from the hangar] This is gonna ruin my whole day!

Tsu'tey: YOU!
[Tsu'tey pushes Jake, Neytiri exclaims]
Tsu'tey: You mated with this woman?
Dr. Grace Augustine: Oh, shit!

Dr. Grace Augustine: [Emerging from her avatar pod] Where's my goddamn cigarette? What's wrong with this picture!

Dr. Grace Augustine: Hey Marine!
Jake Sully: [Turns and sees Grace's Avatar] Damn. Grace?
Dr. Grace Augustine: Well who'd you expect, numbnuts?
Dr. Grace Augustine: Think fast.
[Grace throws Jake some type of purple fruit]
Dr. Grace Augustine: Motor control is looking good.
[Jake bites into fruit and chuckles excitedly]

Selfridge: Look. You're supposed to be winning the hearts and minds of the natives. Isn't that the whole point of your little puppet show? If you walk like them, you talk like them, they'll trust you. We build them a school, teach them English. But after - how many years - the relations with the indigenous are only getting worse.
Dr. Grace Augustine: Yeah, well that tends to happen when you use machine guns on them.
Selfridge: Right. C'mere. You see this?
[shows Grace the sample of Unobtanium on his desk]
Selfridge: This is why we're here. Because this little gray rock sells for $20 million a kilo. That's the only reason. This is what pays for the whole party, and it's what pays for your science. Those savages are threatening our whole operation. We're on the brink of war and you're supposed to be finding me a diplomatic solution. So use what you've got, and get me some results.

Col. Quaritch: Shut your pie hole!
Dr. Grace Augustine: Or what, *Ranger Rick*? You gonna shoot me?
Col. Quaritch: I can do that.

Dr. Grace Augustine: [to Selfridge] Those trees were sacred to the Omaticaya in a way you can't imagine.
Selfridge: You know what? You throw a stick in the air around here it falls on some sacred fern, for Christ's sake!
Dr. Grace Augustine: I'm not talking about pagan voodoo here - I'm talking about something REAL and measurable in the biology of the forest.
Selfridge: Which is *what* exactly?
Dr. Grace Augustine: What we think we know - is that there's some kind of electrochemical communication between the roots of the trees. Like the synapses between neurons. Each tree has ten to the fourth connections to the trees around it, and there are ten to the twelfth trees on Pandora...
Selfridge: That's a lot, I'm guessing.
Dr. Grace Augustine: That's more connections than the human brain. You get it? It's a network - a global network. And the Na'vi can access it - they can upload and download data - memories - at sites like the one you just destroyed.
Selfridge: [after a stunned pause] What the HELL have you people been smoking out there?
[beginning to laugh]
Selfridge: They're just. Goddamn. Trees.
Dr. Grace Augustine: You need to wake up, Parker. The wealth of this world isn't in the ground - it's all around us. The Na'vi know that, and they're fighting to defend it. If you wanna share this world with them, *you* need to understand *them*.
Col. Quaritch: I think we understand them just fine. Thanks to Jake here.
[Jake and Grace share a look of horror as Quaritch begins to play Jake's video log]

[Grace's last lines]
Dr. Grace Augustine: Jake...
Jake Sully: [takes her hand, speaks hopefully] Grace...?
Dr. Grace Augustine: I'm with Her now, Jake. She is real...
[dies]

Dr. Grace Augustine: Just relax and let your mind go blank. That shouldn't be too hard for you.
Jake Sully: Kiss the darkest part of my lily white...
[gets cut off]

Dr. Grace Augustine: Why should they help us?

Dr. Grace Augustine: Don't make me force-feed a cripple!
