Pacific Rim (2013)
Herc Hansen: We can either sit here and do nothing or grab those flare guns and do something really stupid.
Stacker Pentecost: Haven't you heard Mr. Beckett? The world is coming to an end. So where would you rather die? Here? or in a Jaeger!
Raleigh Becket: Wait. I think we took this guy out. But just to be safe, we better check for a pulse.
[after activating the Jaeger gun and shooting the monster several times]
Raleigh Becket: No pulse.
Stacker Pentecost: Today. Today... At the edge of our hope, at the end of our time, we have chosen not only to believe in ourselves, but in each other. Today there is not a man nor woman in here that shall stand alone. Not today. Today we face the monsters that are at our door and bring the fight to them. Today, we are cancelling the apocalypse!
Raleigh Becket: [narrating] When I was a kid, whenever I'd feel small or lonely, I'd look up at the stars. Wondered if there was life up there. Turns out I was looking in the wrong direction. When alien life entered our world, it was from deep beneath the Pacific Ocean. A fissure between two tectonic plates. A portal between dimensions. The Breach. I was fifteen when the first Kaiju made land in San Francisco.
Raleigh Becket: By the time tanks, jets and missiles took it down, six days and 35 miles later, three cities were destroyed. Tens of thousands of lives were lost. We mourned our dead, memorialized the event, and moved on. And then, only six months later, the second attack hit Manila.
Newscaster: [on TV] The acid factor of the Kaiju blood creates a toxic phenomenon known as Kaiju Blue
Raleigh Becket: Then the third one hit Cabo. And then the fourth. And then we learned, that this was not gonna stop. This was just the beginning. We needed a new weapon. The world came together, pooling it's resources and throwing aside old rivalries for the sake of the greater good. To fight monsters, we created monsters of our own. The Jaeger program was born.
Raleigh Becket: This is worth fighting for. We don't have to just obey him.
Mako Mori: It's not obedience, Mr. Beckett; it's respect.
[Newt enters Hannibal Chau's secret lab, where workers are busy dissecting and examining kaiju body parts. He is astonished by the amount of kaiju parts in perfect condition]
Dr. Newton Geiszler: Is that a cuticle? In mint condition? Are those kaiju skin lice? I've never seen one alive before. I thought it was impossible to keep them alive.
Hannibal Chau: You can, if you soak them in ammonia.
[Newt turns around and sees Hannibal approach him]
Hannibal Chau: Who sent you here?
Dr. Newton Geiszler: I'm afraid that's classified.
[Hannibal pulls his golden balisong and sticks the tip up Newt's right nostril]
Hannibal Chau: Now, who sent you here?
Dr. Newton Geiszler: Okay, okay! Stacker Pentecost sent me here!
[Hannibal pulls balisong off Newt's nostril]
Dr. Newton Geiszler: You're Hannibal Chau?
Hannibal Chau: I got the name from my favorite historical figure and my second-favorite Szechuan restaurant in Brooklyn.
Raleigh Becket: There are things you can't fight - acts of God. You see a hurricane coming, you get out of the way. But when you're in a Jaeger, you can finally fight the hurricane. You can win.
Lt. A. Kaidanovsky: [in Russian; after Crimson Typhoon is destroyed by a Kaiju] Let's get this bastard!
[Gottlieb rushes in while the Gipsy Danger is going through its inaugural trial run]
Gottlieb: Marshal! Marshal! I need to talk to you.
Stacker Pentecost: [Dismissively] Not now Mr. Gottlieb. I'm sure you can appreciate how important this moment is to me.
Gottlieb: Newton created a neural bridge from garbage and drifted with a Kaiju!
Stacker Pentecost: One, don't you ever touch me again. Two, don't you ever touch me again. Now, you have no idea who the hell I am, or where I have come from. And I'm not about to tell you my whole life story. All I need to be to you and everybody in this dome is a fixed point. The last man standing. I do not need your sympathy or your admiration. All I need is your compliance and your fighting skills. And if I can't get that, then you can go back to the wall that I found you crawling on. Do I make myself clear?
[turns his head away and gestures to his ear. Beckett grimaces, leans closer, and speaks]
Raleigh Becket: Yes, sir!
Stacker Pentecost: One, don't you ever touch me again. Two, don't you ever touch me again.
[Newt enters Hannibal Chau's kaiju herbal store]
Wizened Man: You want to buy kaiju bone powder?
Dr. Newton Geiszler: Bone powder.
Wizened Man: [Gives gesture of erection] Male potency. I use it myself.
Dr. Newton Geiszler: No.
[Showing card that has Chau's logo]
Dr. Newton Geiszler: I'm looking for Hannibal Chau.
[Wizened Man approaches shelves and opens a secret entrance]
Wizened Man: Good luck.
