Jurassic Park

Quotations

Ian: God help us; we’re in the hands of engineers.

Hammond: I don’t believe it. I just don’t believe it. I bring you here to protect me from these characters, and the only one I’ve got on my side is the blood-sucking lawyer.

Lex: It’s a UNIX system! I know this!

Lex: I’m a hacker!
Tim: That’s what I said: you’re a nerd.
Lex: I am not a computer nerd. I prefer to be called a hacker!

Ian: Faster, faster, must go faster!

Alan: Mr. Hammond, I’ve decided not to endorse your park.
Hammond: So have I.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Now eventually you might have dinosaurs on your, on your dinosaur tour, right? Hello? yes?
John Hammond: I really hate that man.

Alan: Big tim, the human piece of toast.

Ian Malcolm: The complete lack of humility for nature that’s being displayed here is staggering.

Alan: You married?
Ian: Occasionally.

Ian: Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.

John: All major theme parks have delays. When they opened Disneyland in 1956, nothing worked.
Ian: Yeah, but John, if the Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don’t eat the tourists.

Ian Malcolm: I’ll tell you the problem with the scientific power that you’re using here: it didn’t require any discipline to attain it. You read what others had done and you took the next step. You didn’t earn the knowledge for yourselves, so you don’t take any responsibility for it. You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could and before you even knew what you had you patented it and packaged it and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you’re selling it, you want to sell it.
