Quotes

The Grand Lunar: You say men cling to different tongues and beliefs. Is there no one ruler?

Joseph Cavor: No. No, every century some despot tries, but up to now no one's succeeded. People like Hannibal, Julius Caesar, Napoleon...

The Grand Lunar: Does this not lead to confusion?

Joseph Cavor: Yes, it does. And worse. Starvation... hostility... even war.

The Grand Lunar: Tell me of war.

Joseph Cavor: Tell you of war? Oh my goodness... Well... it usually starts with a whacking great explosion.

Joseph Cavor: Yet to fight in a war is considered an honor. Well, it's difficult to explain, but men who are killed in battle are heroes. That's odd, isn't it?

The Grand Lunar: Men enjoy to make war?

Joseph Cavor: No. No, they detest it!

The Grand Lunar: Then if they make war, they are defective.

Joseph Cavor: Well... well, we're not perfect. Well, mankind is still developing. We're not, we're not perfect. There are men of peace.

The Grand Lunar: My concern is with the men of violence, the men who kill. Soon others will be coming from Earth. Our galleries will be strewn with dead.

Joseph Cavor: There needn't *be* any others! There needn't *be* any others! I'm the only one who holds the secret of Cavorite.

The Grand Lunar: Then you and your secret will remain here on the Moon.

Arnold Bedford: [shouts] Cavor!

[leaps from hiding]

Arnold Bedford: Cavor, this is not an audience! You're on trial!
