Ralph: Whoever holds the conch gets to speak.

[all are marching and singing in cadence. One sings a sentence, the others repeat it]

PiggyRalphSteveTonyPeterJack MerridewSimonSam, Twin #1Eric, Twin #2Roger: Mama, mama can't you see? / What the Army's done to me? / They put me in a barber's chair. / Spun me 'round, I had no hair./ I used to drive a Cadillac. / Now I'm marching in a pack. / I used to drive a Chevrolet. / Now I'm marching for my pay. / They took away my T.V. / Got me doing I.T.

Piggy: We did everything just the way grownups would have. Why didn't it work? Things would be much better here if it wasn't for him. I wish he was dead.

Ralph: No, you don't.

Piggy: I do! We could just give up and join his tribe. Then we'd at least be with the others.

Ralph: No, Piggy.

Piggy: Ralph... I can't see.

Ralph: I know.

Steve: Sir, are you the leader?

Peter: Jack is the oldest, but Ralph is the colonel.

[group voices votes for Ralph]

Jack Merridew: I guess you just won the election.

Ralph: It doesn't matter who's in charge. We've just got to work together. First, we build a camp.

Tony: What are we gonna do with thieves when we catch them?

Ralph: We can't have kids stealing and just running wild. We're going to have to have stricter rules and hand out demerits... I guess.

Jack Merridew: Right on, Larry. When you other brats get older or get hungry enough, you can come join up, too.

Jack Merridew: See you tonight, girls.

Piggy: We might have to live here for a long time! Maybe the rest of our lives! If we *are* stuck here until we get old, then we can't go on acting like kids! We've got to be sensible and make things work!

Ralph: [looking up] No!

[a rock is pushed off the cliff above, killing Piggy]

Ralph: You're not gonna get away with this.

Jack Merridew: Yeah? Well, what are you going to do, huh?

Piggy: What good is that gonna do? They can't cook pigs without a fire. They'll get trichinosis.

[last lines]

[Ralph and the boys come out of the jungle where they encounter a Marine officer and several marine soldiers on the beach]

Marine Officer: What are you guys doing?

Jack Merridew: What won't matter

Piggy: Once we get rescued

Jack Merridew: You better start to live with yourself, because we ain't gonna get rescued

Piggy: What are you talking about

Jack Merridew: Just being logical, a plane goes down in the middle of the ocean theres no wreckage, who's gonna find us

Piggy: Whhy don't you just shut up

Jack Merridew: Are you telling me to shut up

Piggy: Well, what we need here is positive people, not people trying to scare people!

Jack Merridew: Well what we don't need around here is you shitbrain!

Sam, Twin #1: His name is not shitbrain, It's Piggy!

Jack Merridew: Yeah Piggy!

Ralph: Shut up! Everybody just shut up!

Jack Merridew: Whats this dumbshit I hear about a monster. Were gonna have to send you back to kindergarten.

Steve: I'm serious.

Jack Merridew: Ok, what kind of monster. Did it have fur and poison fangs, or long slimy tentacles.

Steve: It growled and it came out of me and it's mouth, it was wet.

Luke: Maybe it was a bear.

Roger: Sounds more like a reptile.

Jack Merridew: Sounds more like bullshit.

Jack Merridew: Rodge, you okay, man? That was some jump.

Roger: Got him. Right up the ass.

WillSam, Twin #1Eric, Twin #2Pablo: Up the ass!

Will: Come on, cut it out! You dorks, that hurt!

Ralph: The reason I'm calling this assembly is, too much people are screwing around when they should be working. I mean theirs a bunch of things. Some people don't even know when to use the bathroom.

Tony: Yeah. Theres this one kid, the other day he took a shit in his pants and later sat on it, I'm not naming names because it's possible that Mikey couldn't help it.

Ralph: Face it Jack, you fucked up! We could've been rescued.

Jack Merridew: Back off man! I'm sick of your shit and so is my gang.

Ralph: Your gang. What's that supposed to mean?

Jack Merridew: What it means colonel, that no ones good for you and stop trying to run everything.

Jack Merridew: Whats the matter kids! Your to afraid to bring it with you, anyways the conch doesn't count anymore Miss Piggy-tits.

Ralph: Stop that!

Jack Merridew: No ones interested in you or your fucking conch, why don't you just take your fat friend and shove off, you could've had all the meat you can eat. Come on hunters! Rogers the pig!
