The Death of the Incredible Hulk (1990 TV Movie)
Dr. Ronald Pratt: David, there is chance that I can rid you of this thing! But I have to see it, I have to study it David!
David Banner: I can tear down a brick wall but I can also mend flesh and bone in hours, minutes.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: David, are you telling me that this creature cannot die?
David Banner: If the damage were catastrophic maybe. Maybe. But I have seen lacerations close in seconds, bullet wounds heal, I don't even have scar.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: That's incredible. It's almost... it's almost immortal.
David Banner: Incredible yes, an incredible nightmare. And I want to destroy it and be human again.
[David is at Pratt's computer as Pratt silently walks down the stairs]
Dr. Ronald Pratt: You.
[David turns to Pratt, startled]
Dr. Ronald Pratt: Who are you?
David Banner: A friend.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: Why do you come here in this way?
[David stands up]
David Banner: I have no choice.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: What is it that you want?
[David is silent]
Dr. Ronald Pratt: David. Tell me something. Something to keep me from calling security.
[Pratt's hand reaches out slowly to the security button]
David Banner: Banner!
[Pratt stops and looks at David with shocked realization]
David Banner: My name is...
Dr. Ronald Pratt: Banner. Of course! Doctor David Banner! Stanford, Princeton! Amy was right, it's a ghost.
David Banner: Much worse than that.
[David stands at Pratt's blackboard where his formula notes are written and he points at the start of the notes as he looks at Pratt, who is seated at his desk]
David Banner: I was at this far twelve years ago. I thought I knew so much.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: You were one of the pioneers.
David Banner: I was a patient. I read all of your papers on everything. Developmental growth factors, molecular genetics, cryogenics. Even then you were chasing the healing powers. But I was after the extra strength, the superhuman unexplained strength that all humans are capable of during moments of danger.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: I read all of your papers too. You were the first to use radiation.
David Banner: But I moved too fast. I experimented on myself. And...
Dr. Ronald Pratt: And now you have that strength.
David Banner: Now I have a mutation, near the rage center of my brain. And during moments of anger or fear, it secrets a hormone and I become a mutant thing, a beast until that rage ends. Now the world thinks that I'm dead, but they also think that this creature inside of me is a murderer and they may some day be right! It's not human! Maybe it's what we were before we became human. Maybe it's the worst of us. I never see it. My conscious mind stops. I can't control it.
[David points at the end of the formula written on the blackboard]
David Banner: But do you know what comes next?
[David points to himself and he walks closer to Pratt]
David Banner: Me! *I* am *your* experiment. I am the strength and the healing. I can tear down a brick wall but I can also mend bones and flesh in hours, minutes.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: I must see it, David. Study it.
David Banner: Impossible. He would destroy this place.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: What if I could contain it? Turn its strength back against it, like a force field. I could do that, I could do that here.
David Banner: I can't take that responsibility.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: I will!
David Banner: *No!* I can't let him out! You don't understand. For years, I have tried to control him. To maintain...
Dr. Ronald Pratt: David, please! There is a chance that I can *rid you* of this thing! A chance. Now isn't that what you've been chasing, all these years? But with your help, I could change the way we heal ourselves. I can save lives, David. But I must study this thing. I must see it!
