Elliot Moore: All right, be scientific, douchebag. Identify the... rules... design the experiment... careful observation, measurements, that's what I'm trying to do, interpret the experimental pattern, interpret... What if it IS the plants? That group was larger than ours. This thing's been escalating all day. Smaller and smaller populations have been setting this off. They react to human stimulus. Maybe people are setting off the plants?
Alma Moore: What are you saying? That guy was crazy! We have to save them!

Elliot Moore: If we're going to die, I want you to know something. I was in the pharmacy a while ago. There was a really good-looking pharmacist behind the counter. Really good-looking.

Alma Moore: Are you joking?
[Elliot nods his head]
Alma Moore: Thank you.

Mrs. Jones: [to Elliot and Alma] So what's with you two? Who's chasing who?
Alma Moore: I'm sorry?
Mrs. Jones: Ain't no time two people staring at each other, or standing still, loving both with their eyes are equal. Truth is, someone is chasing someone. That's the way we's built. So, who's chasing?
[Elliot raises his hand]

Alma Moore: Mrs. Jones, um, something's happened along the east coast.

Elliot Moore: I had no idea.
Alma Moore: Yours was blue. Peaceful, right?
Elliot Moore: Right.
Alma Moore: What color was love?
Elliot Moore: I don't remember.
Alma Moore: Me neither.

Nursery Owner: You know plants have the ability to target specific threats. Tobacco plants when attacked by heliothis caterpillars will send out a chemical attracting wasps to kill just those caterpillars. We don't know how plants obtain these abilities, they just evolve very rapidly.

Nursery Owner: Plants have the ability to communicate with other species of plants. Trees can communicate with bushes, and bushes with grass, and everything in between.

Elliot Moore: [Alma looks troubled] What's wrong?
Alma Moore: Okay, I was going to tell you, okay? There was this guy Joey. His name is Joey; he's at work. We went out and we had dessert; I went out and had dessert with him when I told you I worked late and I didn't work late and I'm feeling really guilty in case we're gonna die. I just wanted you to know that.
Elliot Moore: You... lied to me?
