Ian Malcolm: Occasionally. Yeah, I'm... I'm always on the lookout for a future... ex-Mrs. Malcolm.

[A Dennis Nedry caricature appears on the computer screen after Ray Arnold is not allowed into the park's security interface]
Nedry Caricature: Ah, ah, ah! You didn't say the magic word!

John Hammond: [Eating several bowls of ice cream, which were melting] They were all melting.
Ellie Sattler: Malcom'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 [swallows] 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, "Oh, mummy! I can see the fleas, 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.
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.
Ellie Sattler: It's still the flea circus. It's all an illusion.
John Hammond: When we have control again--
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;swallows] It's good.
John Hammond: Spared no expense.

[A plant-eating dinosaur noses into the huddled humans' tree nest]

Tim Murphy: It's a veggie-saurus, Lex! Veggie-saurus!
Lex Murphy: Veggie?

[Muldoon and Ellie equip themselves for a run to the maintenance shed]
John Hammond: But, it ought to be me, really, going.
Ellie Sattler: Why?
John Hammond: Well, I'm a... and you're, uh...
Ellie Sattler: Look...
Robert Muldoon: Come on, let's go.
Ellie Sattler: We can discuss 'sexism in survival situations' when I get back.

Ellie Sattler: I can see the shed from here. We can make it if we run.
Robert Muldoon: No. We can't.
Ellie Sattler: Why not?
