Doctor Pretorius: Follow the lead of nature - or of God, if you like your Bible stories. Male *and* female created to them. Be fruitful and multiply. Create a race. A man-made race upon the face of the earth. Why not?

[prologue]

[Lord Byron looking out the window at a thunderstorm]

Lord Byron: How beautifully dramatic! The cruelest savage exhibition of nature at her worst without.

[turns to face Mary and Percy Shelley, both seated]

Lord Byron: And we three. We elegant three within. I should like to think that an irate Jehovah was pointing those arrows of lightning directly at my head. The unbowed head of George Gordon, Lord Byron. England's greatest sinner. But I cannot flatter myself to that extent. Possibly those thunders are for our dear Shelley. Heavens applause for England's greatest poet.

Percy Bysshe Shelley: What of my Mary?

Lord Byron: She's an angel.

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley: You think so?

Henry Frankenstein: [after seeing Pretorius' creations] But this isn't science. It's more like black magic.

Doctor Pretorius: You think I'm mad. Perhaps I am. But listen, Henry Frankenstein. While you were digging in your graves, piecing together dead tissues, I, my dear pupil, went for my material to the source of life. I grew my creatures, like cultures, grew them as nature does, from seed.

Doctor Pretorius: Everything is now ready for you and me to begin our supreme collaboration!

Henry Frankenstein: No, no. Don't tell me of it. I don't want to hear! I've changed my mind. I won't do it!

Doctor Pretorius: I expected this! I thought we might need another assistant. Perhaps he can persuade you.

Henry Frankenstein: Nothing can persuade me!

Doctor Pretorius: We shall see!

[the Monster is revealed]

Henry Frankenstein: No! Not that!

Doctor Pretorius: Oh, he's quite harmless... except when crossed!

Henry Frankenstein: Oh, what a wonderful vision it was. I dreamed of being the first to give to the world - the secret that God is so jealous of: the formula for life. Think of the power - to create a man - and I did. I did it! I created a man - and who knows, in time, I could have trained him to do my will. I could have built a race. I might even have found the secret of eternal life!

Henry Frankenstein: It may be that I'm intended to know the secret of life. It may be part of the divine plan.

Elizabeth: No, no! It's the devil that prompts you. It's death, not life, that is in it all and at the end of it all.

Minnie: It's Doctor Pretorius. He says he wants to see the Master. Most insistent!

Henry Frankenstein: Pretorius?

Minnie: He's a very queer looking old gentleman, sir. I must see you on a secret, grave matter, he said. Tonight. Alone.

Henry Frankenstein: Bring him in.
