Carl Denham: [after Englehorn turns the ship away from Denham's course] One more week. That's all I'm asking. Please. I haven't got a film yet. I've risked everything I have on this trip.
Captain Engelhorn: No, Denham. You've risked everything I have.
Carl Denham: What do you want? Tell me what you want, I'll give you anything!
Captain Engelhorn: I want you off my ship.

Jimmy: I have a drill sergeant. He orders me around all the time.

Jack Driscoll: God damn it!
Carl Denham: I keep telling you, Jack. There's no money in theatre.

Carl Denham: I'll give you another thousand if you leave right now.

Captain Englehorn: There's nothing out there.
Carl Denham: Then you've nothing to lose.

Captain Englehorn: [after saving Carl, Jack, Jimmy and Preston from oversized insects] That's the thing about ****roaches. No matter how many times you flush them down the toilet, they always crawl back up the bowl.
Carl Denham: Hey buddy, I'm out of the bowl. I'm drying off my wings and trekkin' across the lid!

Carl Denham: $2000 is the deal. Will you take a check?
Captain Englehorn: Do I have a choice?

Carl Denham: Bring the tripod and all of the film stock.
Herb: You wanna go to the six-inch lens?
Carl Denham: [he considers the size of Kong, who he has just seen for the first time] Wide-angle will do just fine.
