[Kong has been knocked out by gas bombs]

Carl Denham: Why, the whole world will pay to see this.

Captain Englehorn: No chains will ever hold that.

Carl Denham: We'll give him more than chains. He's always been king of his world, but we'll teach him fear. We're millionaires, boys. I'll share it with all of you. Why, in a few months, it'll be up in lights on Broadway: Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World.

Carl Denham: And now, ladies and gentlemen, before I tell you any more, I'm going to show you the greatest thing your eyes have ever beheld. He was a king and a god in the world he knew, but now he comes to civilization merely a captive - a show to gratify your curiosity. Ladies and gentlemen, look at Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World.

Ann Darrow: Do you always take the pictures yourself?

Carl Denham: Ever since a trip I made to Africa. I'd have got a swell picture of a charging rhino, but the cameraman got scared. The darn fool, I was right there with a rifle! Seems he didn't trust me to get the rhino before it got him. I haven't fooled with a cameraman since; I do it myself.

Carl Denham: Wait a minute, what about Kong?

Jack Driscoll: Well, what about him?

Carl Denham: We can here to get a moving picture, and we've found something worth more than all the movies in the world!

Captain Englehorn: [incredulous] What?

Carl Denham: We've got those gas bombs. If we can capture him alive...

Jack Driscoll: Why, you're crazy. Besides that, he's on a cliff where a whole army couldn't get at him.

Carl Denham: Yeah, if he stays there...

[looks at Ann]

Carl Denham: but we've got something he wants.

Jack Driscoll: [holds Ann] Yeah. Something he won't get again.

Theatre Patron: Well I never... thought I was gonna see something.

Carl Denham: [protesting the agent's lack of confidence in the safety of Denham's voyage] You act as if I've never brought anybody back alive! Look at the Captain and first mate - - they've gone on several of my last missions, and they don't look any the worse for wear.

Jack Driscoll: [sarcastically, in wary half-hearted agreement with Denham's assertions] Yeah - - we're healthy!
