Quinn's Mother: Have you been smoking?
12-year-old Quinn Abercromby: No, I told you -- I only smoke when I've been drinking.
Worker: And what brings you to the arsehole of the world?
12-year-old Quinn Abercromby: You're passing through it. What's that make you?
Quinn Abercromby: I've kept this for years, because someday it will be up to you. I don't want you to be afraid. I want you to understand. Knowledge is the only weapon we've got left. In the beginning, it was ignorance that destroyed us. I saw the first, but soon the world saw millions. No one knew how they spawned so fast. They swarmed like locusts, burning everything in their path, driven by one purpose... to feed. Even then, we couldn't believe they were real. Ancient man had made them into myths, but nature had made something far more terrible. Too late, our scientists discovered their true identity... a species which had burned the dinosaurs to dust, whose ash had brought on ice ages, who, in eons past, had scorched the world clean of life. Then starved, then slept, waiting for the earth to replenish itself, waiting to start their cycle anew. Our weapons shot fire back at them, yet for every one of them killed, a hundred took its place. They seemed invulnerable. We could only look on as our leaders used their greatest arsenal to destroy them. But in the end, we only helped them, till the world burned and the few of us that were left fled the cities, found shelter where we could. You have to understand our past because you will decide our future. They're starving now, and they're more dangerous than ever. But we have to go on. We have to outlast them. Only one species is getting out of this alive.
Quinn Abercromby: What do we do when we are awake?
The Children: Keep two eyes on the sky.
Quinn Abercromby: What do we do when we sleep?
The Children: Keep one eye on the sky.
Quinn Abercromby: What do we do when we see them?
The Children: Dig hard, dig deep, go for shelter, and never look back.
Creedy: Creedy's one-and-only black label, aged two weeks in a steel barrel. Now, the secret's swallowing fast. That way it just burns your stomach and not your throat.
Ajay: Hey, Barlow, I've got voices.
Barlow: Ajay, what are you smoking?
Ajay: I'm not messing with you, Barlow. Take a look.
Barlow: A look at what? She's not moving.
Ajay: Forget the bird and use the scope, you wanker.
Creedy: Marauders. Years since we've seen them. Well, look at the bright side - at least we're not alone.
Creedy: Only one thing worse than a dragon... Americans.
Quinn Abercromby: Anything happens, you know what to do.
Creedy: Uh, no. I have no idea.
Quinn Abercromby: Me neither.
Quinn Abercromby: [looking at the vehicles in front of a gate] That's a big tank.
Denton Van Zan: We can do this easy...or we can do it real easy.
Denton Van Zan: It was in a wheat field just south of Coffeyville, Kansas. It was late November. It's a month of mist. And we were caught in the open. The sun was setting behind us. There was nowhere to run. Twice it came in on us, and twice it missed the heart of us. And that's when I had an epiphany. You see, they have great vision...in the day. And they have even better vision at night. But in the failing light, they can't focus. Magic hour.
[after Quinn let Van Zan in]
Creedy: I'm sure you have a perfectly good explanation for this, but I'm buggered if I know what it is.
Quinn Abercromby: He's a Dragon Slayer.
Creedy: A what?
Quinn Abercromby: A Dragon Slayer.
Creedy: Oh, he's a Dragon Slayer. I suppose that would make you King Arthur, does it?
Alexandra Jensen: Is that your son?
Quinn Abercromby: No. Got him f rom the pound.
Alexandra Jensen: Hmm. Is that where you get all your children?
Denton Van Zan: Envy the country that has heroes, huh?! I say pity the country that needs 'em. What are you celebrating? One dragon down, three men dead? Oh, yeah. At that rate, we might just be getting somewhere in about 320 years. Is that what you want? You want a little accommodation? Unh-unh. These beasts live on ash. They feed on death. There's no middle ground...not for them, not for us. And sure as hell not for my men who died out there today. But you go ahead. Have your little... soiree. Personally, you disgust me.
Denton Van Zan: What are you doing here, Quinn?
Quinn Abercromby: You're standing on ground where I've buried hundreds. This is my home. I'm asking the questions. What are you doing here?
Denton Van Zan: I lead...you follow.
Denton Van Zan: How about you, Quinn? You ever seen a male?
Quinn Abercromby: I don't know. When I'm running for my life, I don't stop to look at the plumbing.
Denton Van Zan: Look out that window, Eden isn't burning. Its burnt.
Quinn Abercromby: If they come, they'll burn, we'll build. Or maybe I'll just kill 'em.
