Editor Paley: I don't like this business you're getting yourself into.
Polly Perkins: I'll be just fine, Mr. Paley. You know what a careful girl I am.
Editor Paley: I move my mouth, words come out, you don't hear.
Polly Perkins: I'm late for a movie. [smiles]
Editor Paley: I don't like it when you smile at me.
Polly Perkins: You don't like my smile?
Editor Paley: I don't like what's behind it! Listen, Polly, six scientists are missing, probably dead. Somebody out there means business. I don't want you in the middle of it.
Polly Perkins: It's only a movie, Mr. Paley. I'll bring you some popcorn.


Editor Paley: What's going on? They're calling for midtown to evacuate.
Polly Perkins: Listen, Mr. Paley, I don't have time for this. I need you to dig up anything you can about a Dr. Walter Jennings, and someone named Totenkopf. An address, a phone number, anything you can. It's important.
Editor Paley: Quick as you can. Polly, listen to me. I want you to get out of there. I want you to put the phone down, close your notepad and get the hell out of there.
Polly Perkins: [about the robots] Wait a minute. I can see something now coming into sight above the Palisades. They're crossing Sixth Avenue... Fifth Avenue... they're a hundred yards away...

Captain Francesca Cook: Joseph Sullivan, I was sure you'd be dead by bow.
Joseph Sullivan: It's good to see you too, Franky.
Capt. Francesca Cook: This had better be important or one of us is in trouble.
Joseph Sullivan: It's important.
Capt. Francesca Cook: What is that? [watching Polly trying to climb off the wing of the plane]
Joseph Sullivan: You be nice. Commander Cook, meet Polly Perkins.
Capt. Francesca Cook: Polly Perkins, I've heard so much about you. It's a pleasure to finally meet the competition. It's been a long time since Nanjing, hasn't it, Joseph?

Capt. Francesca Cook: Reconnaissance located an island three kilometers northeast of our current position. It is not, however, on any of our charts.
Polly Perkins: That has to be him.
Capt. Francesca Cook: That has to be who? What have you gotten me into this time, Joseph?
Joseph Sullivan: Nothing you can't handle, Franky. [Polly trips and slams her hand into some controls, causing sirens to go off] Polly, try not to touch anything.

Capt. Francesca Cook: You're all clear. Good luck, Joe.
Joseph Sullivan: Thank you, Franky. We'll take it from here.
Polly Perkins: She's some kind of girl.
Joseph Sullivan: Yes, I know. I'm taking us up.

[Polly's faulty directions nearly crashed them into a building]
Joseph Sullivan: Shortcut, heh!
Polly Perkins: I got us here, didn't I?
Joseph Sullivan: It's a dead end. Some shortcut!
Polly Perkins: That's not supposed to be there.

Polly Perkins: It's been three years, Joe. You're not still mad at me, are you? Can't even remember what we were fighting about.
Joseph Sullivan: You sabotaged my plane.
Polly Perkins: Right.
Joseph Sullivan: I spent six months in a Manchurian slave camp because of you. They were gonna cut off my fingers.
Polly Perkins: Joe, for the last time, I didn't sabotage your damn airplane!
Joseph Sullivan: All so you could get a photograph of Tojo Hideki in his bathrobe, remember?
Polly Perkins: You know, I'm starting to think that you've invented this whole sabotage nonsense to cover the fact that you were running around on me with your little mystery girl the whole time we were in Nanjing.

Polly Perkins: Joe, I wanna ask you something and I want you to tell me the truth. I don't care one way or the other, I swear. I just need to know. The girl in Nanjing was Franky wasn't it?
Joseph Sullivan: Polly...
Polly Perkins: How long were you seeing her?
Joseph Sullivan: Look me in the eyes. I never fooled around on you. Never.
Polly Perkins: I sabotaged you plane.
Joseph Sullivan: Three months.

[Joe and Polly are preparing to take off along with Franky. Polly looks annoyed with Joe]
Joseph Sullivan: What?
Polly Perkins: 'Nanjing'?
Joseph Sullivan: [shouts] I can't hear you, Polly! You'll have to speak up! [they took off]
Captain Francesca Cook: [over the radio] Keep your nose up, Joseph. You always were bad at the short takeoff.
Joseph Sullivan: Keep up, Franky. I don't wanna have to come back for you.
Polly Perkins: I thought you takeoff was just fine.
Joseph Sullivan: Thank you, Polly.
Polly Perkins: So you heard that, did you?

Polly Perkins: What are you doing? You honestly think you're gonna find something more important than every single creature on Earth being led by two by two inside a giant rocket ship?
Joseph Sullivan: I might.
Polly Perkins: Like what?
Joseph Sullivan: I'll know when I see it!

[Joe has marked Totenkopf's location on the map]
Polly Perkins: There's nothing there. Are you sure you did it right?
Joseph Sullivan: I'm sure. If the old man was right, that's where Totenkopf is now. Dead center in the middle of nowhere. [marks another spot on the map, just short of making it to the first spot]
Polly Perkins: What's that point there?
Joseph Sullivan: That's where we run out of fuel.

[Sky Captain and Polly take cover behind a box labeled "dynamite"]
Polly Perkins: Oh, great. We're safe.
Joseph Sullivan: Polly, this may be our last moment together. There's something I need to ask you.
Polly Perkins: Yes, Joe?
Joseph Sullivan: Did you cut my fuel line?
Polly Perkins: Damn it! I didn't sabotage your lousy airplane!
Joseph Sullivan: Fine.
Polly Perkins: Our last moments on Earth and this is all you have to say?
Joseph Sullivan: Could we just die for once without all this bickering?

Polly Perkins: We went underwater.
Joseph Sullivan: Dex rigged it up. Got the idea from one of his comic books.
Polly Perkins: You mean, you knew this the whole time, and you let me think we were gonna crash? I thought you were gonna die! You should have said something!
Joseph Sullivan: Look, Polly, it was your idea to tag along, not mine. If you can't take it, that's not my fault.
Polly Perkins: Oh, I can't take it.
Joseph Sullivan: I can take anything you dish out.

Joseph Sullivan: It's a mobile airstrip. Dex has a hand in designing it. You can keep a secret, can't you, Polly?
Polly Perkins: [raising her camera to photograph it] Yeah, I can keep a secret. [looks at her camera] Two shots. [doesn't take a picture]

[Joe wouldn't let Polly go back to get her case of film in the cave that was about to explode]
Polly Perkins: You should've let me go back for my film.
Joseph Sullivan: You're right, I should've.
