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.


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.

[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!

[while crying after realizing she wasted on of 2 pictures left in the camera] I shot the ground!

[repeated line] Good boy, Dex.

Naked... you can say it, Polly.

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: 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!

[describing the robot invasion to her editor] They've reached Sixth Avenue. They've reached Fifth Avenue. They're a hundred yards away. Oh, my God.

[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?

[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.

Polly Perkins: Doctor, you said you knew who was next.
Dr. Jennings: Yes, well... don't you see it? There is only one left.
Polly Perkins: Who? Who is it, doctor?
Dr. Jennings: Me! He's coming for me.
Polly Perkins: Who? Who's coming?
Dr. Jennings: Totenkopf... it's Totenkopf!

This is Sky Captain, I'm on my way.

It's only a movie, Mr Paley. I'll bring you some popcorn.

[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?
