Dr. Ellie Sattler: Dr. Grant's not machine compatible.

Unimpressed 10-year-old: More like a six-foot turkey.
Dr. Alan Grant: A turkey, huh? Try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous Period. You get your first look at this "six foot turkey" as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex – he'll lose you if you don't move. But no, not Velociraptor. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side, from the other two raptors you didn't even know were there. Because Velociraptor's a pack hunter, you see, he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this – a six-inch retractable claw, like a razor, on the middle toe. He doesn't bother to bite your jugular like a lion, oh no ... he slashes at you here [makes slashing motions below the child's chest] or here ... [above the groin] or maybe across the belly, spilling your intestines. The point is ... you are alive when they start to eat you. So you know ... try to show a little respect.

John Hammond: There is no doubt that our attractions will drive kids out of their minds.
Dr. Alan Grant: What are those?
Dr. Ellie Sattler: Small versions of adults, honey.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: You've never heard of Chaos theory? Non-linear equations? Strange attractors? Dr. Sattler, I refuse to believe you're not familiar with the concept of attraction.

John Hammond: I bring the scientists, you bring the rock star.

On DVD...

Donald Gennaro: The full 50 miles of perimeter fence are in place?
John Hammond: [in a annoyed tone] And the concrete moats, and the motion sensor tracking systems. Donald, dear boy, relax. Try to enjoy yourself.
Donald Gennaro: Let's get something straight John. This is not a weekend excursion, this is a serious investigation of the stability of the island. Your investors, the people i represent are deeply concerned. In forty-eight hour from now, if they're not convinced, I'm not convinced. I'll shut you down John.
John Hammond: [chuckles] In the next forty-eight hours, I'll be accepting your apologies.

Dr. Ellie Sattler: [To Alan] What do you think?
Dr. Alan Grant: That we are out of job.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Don't you mean extinct?

Dr. Ian Malcolm: But again, how do you know they're all female? Does someone go into the park and, uh ... pull up the dinosaurs' skirts?

Henry Wu: You're implying that a group composed entirely of female animals will breed?
Dr. Ian Malcolm: No, I'm simply saying that life, uh, finds a way.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Gee, the lack of humility before nature that's being displayed here, um... staggers me.

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

John Hammond: How can we stand in the light of discovery and not act?
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Oh, what's so great about discovery? It's a violent, penetrative act that scars what it observes. What you call discovery... I call the rape of the natural world. Well, the question is: How can you know anything about an extinct ecosystem? And therefore, how could you ever assume that you can control it?

Dr. Ian Malcolm: What've they got in there, King Kong?

Dr. Ian Malcolm: God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs.
Dr. Ellie Sattler: Dinosaurs eat man … woman inherits the earth.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Boy, do I hate being right all the time.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Remind me to thank John for a lovely weekend.

Fun and Games

John Hammond: [eating several bowls of ice cream] They were all melting.
Dr. Ellie Sattler: Malcolm's okay for now. I gave him a shot of morphine.
John Hammond: They'll be fine. Who better to get the children through Jurassic Park than a dinosaur expert? You know the first attraction I built when I came down from Scotland … was a flea circus. Petticoat Lane. Really … quite wonderful. We had, uh … a wee trapeze, a merry-go…carousel. Heh. And a see-saw. They all moved, motorized, of course, but people would say they could see the fleas. "No, I can see the fleas. Mummy, can't you see the fleas?" Clown fleas, highwire fleas and fleas on parade. But with this place … I wanted to give them something that wasn't an illusion. Something that was real. Something they could see, and touch. An aim not devoid of merit.
Dr. Ellie Sattler: But you can't think through this one, John. You have to feel it.
John Hammond: You're right, you're absolutely right. Hiring Nedry was a mistake, that's obvious. We're over-dependent on automation, I can see that now. Now, the next time everything's correctable. Creation is an act of sheer will. Next time it'll be flawless.
Dr. Ellie Sattler: It's still the flea circus. It's all an illusion.
John Hammond: When we have control again –
Dr. Ellie Sattler: You never had control! That's the illusion! I was overwhelmed by the power of this place. But I made a mistake, too. I didn't have enough respect for that power and it's out now. The only thing that matters now are the people we love. Alan and Lex and Tim … John, they're out there where people are dying. So … [takes a spoonful of ice cream] it's good.
John Hammond: Spared no expense.

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

John Hammond: It's a UNIX system, I know this!

Dr. Alan Grant: Mr. Hammond, after careful consideration, I've decided not to endorse your park.
John Hammond: So have I.
