The Blob (1958)
[after throwing acid on the Blob]
Kate, the nurse: Doctor, nothing will stop it!
Steve Andrews: [trying to get everybody's attention] Listen, now listen to me, everybody, this town is in danger. Now, several people have been killed already! Now we - we had to make this noise so you would listen to us, so we could warn you!
Man: If we're in trouble, where're the police?
Sgt. Jim Bert: [sees Steve] You, boy, this time you really hanged yourself.
Steve Andrews: Now, look, Sarge. Just give me a chance to talk to them, that's all.
Sgt. Jim Bert: I don't know what kind of stunt it is you're pulling here, but whatever it is, it's going to stop right now!
Officer Ritchie: Here comes Dave!
Lieutenant Dave: What's going on here, Jim? Steve!
Steve Andrews: Dave, make them listen to me. There IS a monster! We saw it again at dad's store, and it's bigger now!
Sgt. Jim Bert: Your story's gotten bigger now, kid.
Steve Andrews: Dave, look at me! Do I look like somebody's playing a practical joke? Am I laughing, or am I scared stiff?
Lieutenant Dave: He's telling the truth.
Lieutenant Dave: Just because some kid smacks into your wife on the turnpike doesn't make it a crime to be 17 years old.
[On the radio to Washington]
Lieutenant Dave: I think you should send us the biggest transport plane you have, and take this thing to the Arctic or somewhere and drop it where it will never thaw.
Lieutenant Dave: At least we've got it stopped.
Steve Andrews: Yeah, as long as the Arctic stays cold.
Jane Martin: [hysterical after they just escaped the Blob] Steve... our parents think we're in bed, at home, safe, asleep, sound.
Sgt. Jim Bert: [comes out of the market where Steve told everyone the Blob was] There's nobody in here but us monsters...
Steve Andrews: [a screaming crowd comes running around the corner] Dave! It's at the theater!
Lieutenant Dave: [runs into the theater with a shotgun; after firing three shots, retreats as Jim prepares to go in] Don't go in, Jim! This won't do any good! It's the most horrible thing I've ever seen in my life. Come on, we've got to clear this area!
Elizabeth Martin: [the air raid siren blows] Henry, Danny's gone!
Henry Martin: [trying to get an answer on the phone] What?
Elizabeth Martin: And Jane too!
[Henry hangs up and meets her at the stairs]
Henry Martin: Well now calm down...
Elizabeth Martin: I looked in both their rooms, they're both gone!
Henry Martin: Are you sure?
Elizabeth Martin: Yes! Yes!
Danny Martin: Well maybe they're down here.
[turns on the living room lights, Danny's asleep on the couch]
Danny Martin: Here's Danny!
Elizabeth Martin: [running behind him] Danny! What're you doing here?
Danny Martin: I'm... guarding you.
Elizabeth Martin: Guarding us? Guarding us against what, darling?
Danny Martin: I don't know.
Henry Martin: Is everyone in this whole town gone crazy? Danny, do you know where Jane is?
Danny Martin: She's just gone.
Henry Martin: [stands up] I'm going to get to the bottom of this at once.
[hears dog barking]
Jane Martin: I bet there is a house somewhere.
'Mooch' Miller: [laughs] It doesn't sound like a house. It sounds like a dog.
Steve Andrews: How do you get people to protect themselves from something they don't believe in?
Steve Andrews: Dad, it isn't vandalism! Doctor Hallen is dead, and he was killed by some sort of a monster! Now, I know because I saw it, Dad.
Henry Martin: Well then, young lady, do you mind telling me where you've been spending the evening?
Jane Martin: Daddy, it's all right.
Henry Martin: [sarcastically] Oh, yes, everything's fine, I always stop by the police station in the middle of the night to pick up my daughter. Don't you realize that by morning this will be all over town?
Jane Martin: Well we were just trying to warn people.
Henry Martin: After all, I am the principal at the high school.
Henry Martin: Young man, this is the last time you're going to take my daughter out!
Jane Martin: Steve didn't do anything wrong!
Tony Gressette: All right, Steve. You made us waste our 80 cents, now what gives?
[all the teenagers demand to know what's going on]
Steve Andrews: Would you believe me if I told you there was something inside of that rock we found tonight? Something that could wipe out this whole town?
Tony Gressette: [all the teenagers laugh] Hey, knock it off! Go ahead, Steve.
Steve Andrews: I saw this thing kill Doc Hallen tonight.
[all the kids are shocked]
Steve Andrews: That's right.
Tony Gressette: What is it?
Steve Andrews: I don't know, but one thing's for certain, if it can kill Doctor Hallen, it can kill somebody else.
Al: Well what do you want us to do, Steve?
Steve Andrews: All right, we're going to find this thing, and we're going to make people believe us.
Steve Andrews: Alright, we tried to do it the right way, now we're going to wake this town up ourselves.
Tony Gressette: Yeah, but how?
Al: Yeah, how?
Steve Andrews: Any way we can think of.
Steve Andrews: [friends come running up to he and Jane] Where have you kids been? It's in there! It's in there! I wish I were kidding. It's in there!
Steve Andrews: Dave! Doc Hallen's been killed!
Lieutenant Dave: Doc Hallen? What happened?
Steve Andrews: It's over at his place! You've gotta come now!
Lieutenant Dave: Now wait a minute, Steve. Tell us what happened.
Steve Andrews: I'm trying to tell you - now this thing has killed the Doc.
Sgt. Jim Bert: Well what was it? Out with it, kid!
Steve Andrews: Well it's kind of a - kind of a mass. It keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Lieutenant Dave: Come on, Steve, make sense.
Steve Andrews: I know, I know! Look, Dave, you gotta see this thing to believe what I'm telling you.
Sgt. Jim Bert: Maybe this thing you saw was a - monster?
Steve Andrews: Yeah, maybe it was. I don't know.
Lieutenant Dave: Hold on, Jim. Now what is this, Steve? A little while ago it was driving backwards, now it's monsters.
Jane Martin: He's not making it up, Dave, honest!
Steve Andrews: Dave, I'm not kidding you. I swear, come out to the Doc's. You can see it for yourself.
Sgt. Jim Bert: You're crazy if you go. Can't you see it's a gag?
Lieutenant Dave: He says Doc Hallen's dead, Jim. We've got to check it out.
Dr. T. Hallen: [on the phone] Kate? It's Dr. Hallen, I'm still at the office... something's come up. I need you back here right away. No, you've got to come back, Kate. There's a man here with some sort of a parasite on his arm, assimilating his flesh at a frightening speed. I may have to get ahead of it and amputate. No... I don't know what it is or where it came from.
Lieutenant Dave: Mrs. Porter, did you hear any gunshots tonight?
Mrs. Porter: I sure did, tonight and every other night. The people downstairs have them old movies on their televisions. There's always some shooting or screaming.
Steve Andrews: You sure you want to go with me?
Jane Martin: Yes.
Steve Andrews: I wouldn't give much for our chances, us running around in the middle of the night, looking for something that if we found it, it might kill us.
Man in crowd: [as the young folk return from the school with the CO2 fire extinguishers] Hey! Here come the kids back!
Mrs. Porter: [to Dave as she's about to clean up the doctor's office] Can't I just dust around the fingerprints?
Mr. Andrews: Lieutenant, I'll have you know that Steve isn't in the habit of telling lies. If he says he's not mixed up in this vandalism thing, you can be sure it's the truth.
Danny Martin: [catches Jane sneaking down the stairs] Hey! Where're you going?
Jane Martin: Oh! Shhh, come here, Danny, shhhhhh.
Danny Martin: Where are you going?
Jane Martin: I've got something very important to do, Danny, but it's got to be a secret.
Danny Martin: I won't tell anybody, I'll go with you.
Jane Martin: Oh no, honey, I've got to go by myself.
Danny Martin: Will you be back pretty soon?
Jane Martin: Well I don't know.
Danny Martin: Aren't you afraid to go out by yourself?
Jane Martin: You're right, I guess I am, Danny.
Danny Martin: I'm not afraid, I'll guard you.
Jane Martin: Oh no, Danny, you've got a bigger job to do, you've got to stay here and guard Mommy and Daddy.
Danny Martin: Oh they don't need guarding.
Tony Gressette: [Steve stops outside the phone booth to call the police] Go on!
Steve Andrews: You talk to them, Tony.
Tony Gressette: Me? Why me?
Steve Andrews: I'm supposed to be home asleep, if they think I'm running around loose, they'll never believe us.
Al: Yeah yeah, here's a dime. Come on, come on!
Tony Gressette: What'll I say?
Steve Andrews: Ask for Dave, and listen Tony, you give it to him straight. Tell him to get out to this store quick! You tell him to bring every piece of hardware he can find in the police station!
Fire Chief: [after a failed attempt to kill the Blob] The diner's on fire.
Lieutenant Dave: Well, can we put it out?
Fire Chief: Any suggestions how? Anyway, there's not enough oxygen in there to keep a fire burning for 10 minutes.
'Mooch' Miller: [he and Al stumble upon a girl and a mean looking guy making out in the woods] Excuse us, we were just looking for a monster.
Jane Martin: [Steve runs back to the car in a panic] Steve! What happened? Tell me.
Steve Andrews: I can't.
Jane Martin: Steve, what is it?
Steve Andrews: [hysterical] It's got the doc.
Jane Martin: Well what's the matter with him?
Steve Andrews: Just like the thing on the old man's hand, only it was bigger and then it was on his whole head and he disappeared.
Jane Martin: Disappeared?
Steve Andrews: He was all gone, he was all gone, he just disappeared.
Jane Martin: Steve, what are you talking about?
Steve Andrews: [calms down] I'm sorry... get in the car, Jane.
Jane Martin: What're you going to do, Steve?
Steve Andrews: We're gonna go to the police, they'll know what to do.
Steve Andrews: You know, plenty of people in their right minds thought they saw stuff like flying saucers. The light was just right in the angle of the imagination. And oh boy if that's what this is, this is just an ordinary night, and you and I are going to go home to sleep, and tomorrow the sun will shine just like yesterday, good old yesterday.
Lieutenant Dave: [finds Doc Hallen's office in shambles, finds a shotgun] This has been fired, but I haven't seen any shot marks around anyplace.
Sgt. Jim Bert: [to Steve] Let me tell you what happened kid. You and whoever else you're in this with decided you'd pull one over on the police department. So you bust in here when the doc's not around, smash the place up...
Lieutenant Dave: Hold on, Jim, the kids couldn't have done this. You saw for yourself, the window was locked from the inside, and so was the door.
Sgt. Jim Bert: They rigged it with a piece of string to lock from the outside to make us look silly.
Jane Martin: I think you're doing a good job of that all by yourself, Sergeant.
