Orca (1977)
Rachel: The killer whale. He is a mammal with warm blood, found in every sea.

Rachel: I'd insisted on leaving South Harbor with them. I told myself that somehow I was responsible for Nolan's state of mind. That I had filled his head with romantic notions about a whale capable not only of profound grief, which I believed, but also of calculated and vindictive actions, which I found hard to be believe, despite all that had happened.

Rachel: [while listening to Orca's sounds through a hydrophone] What is he saying?
Captain Nolan: You're me, he says... I'm you, he says... you're my... drunk driver... he says...

Rachel: He followed you. He saw you on the deck of the boat.

Rachel: He deliberately left you your boat because he wants to fight you alone on the sea.

Rachel: You're planning to capture and sell a fellow creature! He's like you - he has warm blood, he breathes air, he's a mammal, but with intelligence!

Rachel: There's a word for you.
Captain Nolan: And I've been called it. Many times.

Rachel: Did I tell you that that animal has a right to be left alone?
Captain Nolan: No, but I have a notion you're about to.

Captain Nolan: If you're so sure I can't catch a killer whale, why are you so upset?
Rachel: Listen, you won't catch one, but you might butcher a couple dozen in the attempt!
Captain Nolan: Oh, that's not my style at all.

Rachel: [after Orca's mate washes ashore, dead with Nolan's harpoon in her, mockingly to Nolan] You won't kill one. Its not your *style*.

Captain Nolan: I won't fight him at all.
Rachel: But you'll murder him - you'll sit here safe on the jetty, and shoot him through the eye? You're not a man, you're an animal! Its creatures like you science should be observing!
