Dr. Louis Leakey: Choose your man.

Dr. Louis Leakey: Your top man. Your tracker.

Dian Fossey: What's your name?

Sembagare: Sembagare

Dian Fossey: Sem-ba-ga-re

Dian Fossey: You mean we go now?

Dr. Louis Leakey: Yes, to make it by sundown.

Dian Fossey: Dr Leakey, I just spent 35 hours on 4 different airplanes. I should at least take a shower.

Dr. Louis Leakey: No one will mind dear.

Dr. Louis Leakey: There. I've put something in there for you.

Dian Fossey: Thank you, that's very nice of you. You forgot the rest of my luggage.

Dr. Louis Leakey: No room. They'll be sent up next fortnight with the rest of the gear.

Dian Fossey: Now wait a minute! I quit my job, left my fiancé, to say nothing of my appendix and flew halfway around the world. Those cases contain my hairdryer, my makeup, my underwear and my brassieres. If they don't go, Dr Leakey, I don't go.

Dian Fossey: How big are these night nests?

Sembagare: I don't know.

Dian Fossey: You mean you've forgotten.

Sembagare: How can I forget? I never knew.

Dian Fossey: Night nests, Sembagare. George Schaller's book says we count the gorillas' night nests to get the census.

Sembagare: I don't know about gorillas.

Dian Fossey: Of course you do. You're a tracker.

Sembagare: Yes, of buffalo, antelope and elephant.

Dian Fossey: What? Hey! Hey! That's great. That's just great.

Dian Fossey: What the hell have you been doing for the last five hours?

Sembagare: I've been waiting for you to show me.

Dian Fossey: Apparently not.

Dian Fossey: I need eight more Halloween masks - only red ones. Or ones with red hair.

Bob Campbell: I won't even ask why, but I'll try to get some for you in Nairobi.

Dian Fossey: What else will you do in Nairobi?

Bob Campbell: What do you mean?

Dian Fossey: Nothing. Never mind. It looks bad for flying.

Bob Campbell: It'll pass.

Dian Fossey: I don't think so.

Bob Campbell: Those puddle jumpers can fly in anything.

Dian Fossey: I know these storms. You shouldn't be flying. I'm right about this.

Bob Campbell: Yes, you are right. I will be seeing my wife.

Dian Fossey: I know.

Bob Campbell: I know. I love you.

Dian Fossey: What?

Dian Fossey: Oh, no! Oh, my God. No. God. No! No! Goddamn you. You bastards!

Dian Fossey: Do you think I'm weird?

Bob Campbell: I do. Absolutely. Without question. I also think you are wonderful.

Dian Fossey: Which comes first, weird or wonderful?

Bob Campbell: Weird.

Dian Fossey: The gorillas look great. Look at that.

Dian Fossey: You see anyone you know?

Bob Campbell: I've asked my wife for a divorce.

Rushemba: Mukara was here this afternoon. He is very angry with you. He says you are telling people there's typhoid on the mountain. The government needs money from the tourists. They get very mad if you scare these people away. Mukara also said last week you shot a tourist in the meadow.

Dian Fossey: Now, that is not true. I shot way over their heads.

Dian Fossey: They are not going to turn this mountain... into a goddamn zoo!
