Quotes

Roland Tembo: The Rex just fed, so he won't be hunting for a while.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Just fed? I assume you're talking about Eddie? You might show a little more respect, the man saved our lives by giving his.

Roland Tembo: Then his problems are over. My point is, predators don't hunt when they're not hungry.

Nick Van Owen: Yeah, only humans do.

Roland Tembo: Oh, you're breaking my heart. Come on! Saddle up, let's get this moveable feast under way!

Sarah Harding: And an apple turnover!

Dr. Ian Malcolm: When you try to sound like Hammond, it comes off as a hustle. I mean, it's not your fault. They say talent skips a generation. So, I'm sure your kids will be sharp as tacks.

Peter Ludlow: Hammond's reach exceeded his grasp. Mine does not.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Taking dinosaurs off this island is the worst idea in the long, sad history of bad ideas. And I'm gonna be there when you learn that.

Nick Van Owen: You seem like you have a shred of common sense, what the hell are you doing here?

Roland Tembo: Somewhere on this island is the greatest predator there ever lived. The second greatest predator must take him down.

[grins]

Nick Van Owen: [referring to Roland's gun] You gonna use that?

Roland Tembo: If he doesn't surrender, yes.

Nick Van Owen: [chuckles] The animal exists on the planet for the first time in tens of millions of years and the only way you can express yourself is to kill it.

Roland Tembo: Remember that chap about twenty years ago? I forget his name. Climbed Everest without any oxygen, came down nearly dead. When they asked him, they said why did you go up there to die? He said I didn't, I went up there to live.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Greenpeace? What drew you there?

Nick Van Owen: Women. 80 percent female, Greenpeace.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: That's noble.

Nick Van Owen: Yeah well, noble was last year. This year I'm getting paid. Hammond's check cleared, or I wouldn't be going on this wild goose chase...

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Uh, where your going is the only place in the world where the geese chase *you*!

[last lines]

John Hammond: It is absolutely imperative that we work with the Costa Rican Department of Biological Preserves to establish a set of rules for the preservation and isolation of that island. These creatures require our absence to survive, not our help. And if we could only step aside and trust in nature, life will find a way.

[they hug]

Roland Tembo: That cheap aftershave I send you every Christmas, you actually wear it. I'm touched. Sit down. What on earth brings you to Mombassa?

[they sit]

Ajay Sidhu: You, my friend. I got a call from a man who's going to Costa Rica, or thereabouts. And if I'm to be believed, its a most well-funded expedition.

Roland Tembo: Well, I'm a very well-funded old son of a bitch. You go.

Ajay Sidhu: What, alone? But we always had such great success together, you and I.

Roland Tembo: A little too great, don't you think?

Ajay Sidhu: What do you mean?

Roland Tembo: A true hunter doesn't mind if the animal wins. There weren't enough escapes from you and me, Ajay. We were like a firing squad, don't you think?

Ajay Sidhu: I have reason to believe you would find this expedition's quarry most challenging.

Roland Tembo: Then it's probably illegal. These days it's a worse crime to shoot a tiger than to shoot your own parents...

[about the poison on the darts in their guns]

Eddie Carr: The most powerful neurotoxin in the world. It works faster than the nerve conduction velocity, which means the animal's down before it actually feels the - P! - prick of the dart.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Is there an antidote?

Eddie Carr: What, like if you shot yourself in the foot? Don't do that, you would be dead before you even knew you had an accident.

Roland Tembo: Peter, if you want me to run your little camping trip, there are two conditions: first, I'm in charge, and when I'm not around, Dieter is. All you have to do is sign the checks, tell us we're doing a good job, and open your case of scotch when we have a good day. Second condition: my fee? You can keep it. All I want in return for my services is the right to hunt one of the tyrannosaurs. A male, a buck only. How and when is my business. Now if you don't like either of those conditions, you're on your own. So go ahead, set up base camp right here, or in a swamp, or in the middle of a Rex nest for all I care. But I've been on too many safaris with rich dentists to listen to any more suicidal ideas, OK?
