Uber-Morlock: We bred ourselves into castes. Some to be our eyes and ears, others to be our muscles and sinews...
Hartdegen: You mean your hunters?
Uber-Morlock: Yes. Bred to be predators, but bred also to be controlled. You see, my caste concentrated on expanding our cerebral abilities.
Hartdegen: You control their thoughts?
Uber-Morlock: Not just theirs.
Hartdegen: [realises] The Eloi. So it's not enough that you hunt them down like animals?
Uber-Morlock: That's their role here.
Hartedegen: To be your food?!
Uber-Morlock: Yes. And for those who are suitable, to be breeding vessels for our other colonies. [indicates Mara in her cage] You see, I am just one of many.
Hartdegen: I don't understand how you can sit there and speak so coldly about this. [the Uber-Morlock rises] Have you not considered the human cost of what it is your are doing?
Uber-Morlock: We all pay a price...Alexander. [other Morlocks roar in the distance] Don't worry, you're safe. I control them. Without that control, they would exhaust the food supply in a matter of months.
Hartdegen: Food supply?! They're human beings!
Uber-Morlock: Who are you to question 800,000 years of evolution?
Hartdegen: This is a perversion of every natural law!
Uber-Morlock: [grabs him by the throat] And what is time travel... but your pathetic attempt to control the world around you?! Your futile effort to have a question answered?!
