My grandfather's work was doo-doo! I am not interested in death! The only thing that concerns me is the preservation of LIFE!!!

Put...the candle...back!

[dreaming] I am not a Frankenstein. I'm a Fronkensteen. Don't give me that. I don't believe in fate. And I won't say it. [pauses] All right, you win. You win. I give. I'll say it. I'll say it. I'll say it. DESTINY! DESTINY! NO ESCAPING THAT FOR ME! DESTINY! DESTINY! NO ESCAPING THAT FOR ME!

For what we are about to see next, we must enter quietly into the realm of genius.

[After reading a portion of his grandfather's journal] IT.......COULD......WORK!!!!

From that fateful day when stinking bits of slime first crawled from the sea and shouted to the cold stars, "I am man!", our greatest dread has always been the knowledge of our mortality. But tonight, we shall hurl the gauntlet of science into the frightful face of death itself. Tonight, we shall ascend into the heavens. We shall mock the earthquake. We shall command the thunders, and penetrate into the very womb of impervious nature herself.



[after reanimation was unsuccessful] Be of good cheer. If science teaches us anything, it teaches us to accept our failures, as well as our successes, with quiet dignity and grace. [pause, then begins choking lifeless creature] SON OF A BITCH! BASTARD! I'LL KILL YOU FOR THIS! WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME?! WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME?! I DO NOT WANT TO LIVE! I DO NOT WANT TO LIVE! Oh mama!

Gone! Gone! We've got to find him, you understand? We've got to find him before he kills someone! What have I done? Oh God in Heaven! What have I done?

Please! Remain in your seats, I beg you! We are not children here, we are scientists! I assure you there is nothing to fear!

Please, I beg you! For safety's sake, don't humiliate him!


Open this door before I kick your rotten heads in!
