Jurassic Park III (2001) Poster

Sam Neill: Dr. Alan Grant



  • Amanda : This is how you make dinosaurs?

    Dr. Grant : No, this is how you play God.

  • Erik : I read both of your books. I liked the first one more. Before you were on the island. You liked dinosaurs back then.

    Dr. Grant : Back then, they hadn't tried to eat me yet.

  • Symposium Leader : [Dr. Grant is giving a lecture]  Now, does anyone have a question?

    [many people in the audience raise their hands] 

    Dr. Grant : Fine. Does anyone have a question that does not relate to Jurassic Park?

    [most people lower their hand] 

    Dr. Grant : Or the incident in San Diego, which I did not witness?

    [nearly everyone else lowers their hand] 

  • Charlie : [Making toy herbivores fight]  Rawr! Rawr Rawr!

    Dr. Grant : Actually, Charlie, those are herbivores. They really wouldn't be interested in fighting with each other, but these ones here are carnivores, and they really like fighting with each other. They'll use their teeth and claws to rip each other's throats out.

    Ellie Degler : Alan, he's three. Let's wait till he's five.

  • Dr. Grant : [the team come across a rotting carcass]  It's OK. It's dead.

    [a T-Rex raises its head out of the carcass] 

    Dr. Grant : Nobody move a muscle.

    [the T-Rex roars and the team runs off] 

    Dr. Grant : Shit!

  • Dr. Grant : Did you read Malcolm's book?

    [Erik nods] 

    Dr. Grant : So?

    Erik : I don't know. It was kinda preachy. And too much Chaos. Everything Chaos. It just seemed like the guy was high on himself.

    Dr. Grant : That's two things we have in common.

  • Billy Brennan : You have to believe me, this was a stupid decision, but I did it with the best intentions.

    Dr. Grant : With the best intentions? Some of the worst things imaginable have been done with the best intentions. You know what, Billy? As far as I'm concerned, you're no better than the people that built this place.

  • Dr. Grant : Oh my God.

    Amanda : What is it?

    Dr. Grant : It's a bird cage.

    Amanda : For what?

  • Dr. Grant : I have a theory that there are two kinds of boys. There are those that want to be astronomers, and those that want to be astronauts. The astronomer, or the paleontologist, gets to study these amazing things from a place of complete safety.

    Erik : But then you never get to go into space.

    Dr. Grant : Exactly. That's the difference between imagining and seeing: to be able to touch them. And that's... that's all that Billy wanted.

    [a field of beautiful dinosaurs comes into view] 

  • Paul : What are you doing? Those things are after us because of those!

    Dr. Grant : Those things know we have the eggs. If I drop them in the river, they'll still be after us.

    Paul : What if they catch us with them?

    Dr. Grant : What if they catch us without them?

  • Dr. Grant : Why me?

    Paul Kirby : He said we needed someone who'd been on the island before.

    Udesky : Yes, but I did not tell you to kidnap somebody!

    Dr. Grant : I have never been on this island.

    Paul Kirby : Sure you have, you wrote that book.

    Billy Brennan : That was Isla Nublar. This is Isla Sorna - Site B.

  • Dr. Grant : Erik, I have to tell you, I'm astonished that you've lasted eight weeks on this island.

    Erik : [Stunned]  ... Is that all it's been?

  • Erik : Be careful with that. T-Rex. It scares some of the smaller ones away but attracts one really big one with the fin.

    Dr. Grant : This is T-Rex pee?

    [Eric nods yes] 

    Dr. Grant : How'd you get it?

    Erik : You don't wanna know.

  • Dr. Grant : Great, just great. We're in the worst place in the world and we're not even being paid.

  • Dr. Grant : [In the plane hanging up in the tree after crashing]  We haven't landed yet.

  • Reporter : Are you saying you wouldn't want to get on Isla Sorna and study them if you had the chance?

    Dr. Grant : No force on earth or heaven could get me on that island.

  • Billy Brennan : [Referring to Spinosaurus]  I don't remember that one being on InGen's list.

    Dr. Grant : It wasn't on their list. Which makes you wonder what else they were up to.

  • Ellie Degler : So what were you doing?

    Dr. Grant : Evolving.

  • Dr. Grant : Either way... you probably won't get off this island alive.

  • Dr. Grant : On this island there is no such thing as safe.

  • Dr. Grant : Reverse Darwinism - survival of the most idiotic.

  • Paul Kirby : [a loud roar rocks the jungle]  What was that?

    Billy Brennan : That's a Tyrannosaurus.

    Dr. Grant : I don't think so. It sounds bigger.

  • Billy Brennan : I rescued your hat.

    Dr. Grant : Well... that's the important thing.

  • [last lines] 

    Erik : Where do you think they're going?

    Dr. Grant : I don't know. Maybe just looking for new nesting grounds. It's a whole new world for them.

    Amanda : I dare 'em to nest in Enid, Oklahoma.
