Hey, what happened with the war? Did we win?
– Hank Marlow
Which one?
– James Conrad
Uh-huh. That makes sense.
– Hank Marlow

Dear Billy, sometimes life’ll just punch ya in the balls.
– Jack Chapman

An uncharted island? Let me list all they ways you gonna die. Rain, heat, mud, disease carrying flies and mosquitoes. Sure you could load up on the Atabrine for the malaria… but what about the other bacteria? And we haven’t even started on the things that want to eat you alive.
– James Conrad

Death before Dishonor.
– Hank Marlow

I suppose no man comes home from war. Not really.
– James Conrad

Is that a monkey?
– Jack Chapman

We just got taken down by a monkey the size of a building!
– Mills
Yeah. That was an unconventional encounter.
– Cole

What lands here tends to stay here.
– Hank Marlow

Captain James Conrad, commander of the air – commander of the sky.
– Bill Randa

Oh, shit.
– Bill Randa

Kong’s a pretty good king. Keeps to himself, mostly. This is his home, we’re just guests. But you don’t go into someone’s house and start dropping bombs, unless you’re picking a fight.
– Hank Marlow

And remember the story of Icarus, whose father gave him wings of wax. Warned him not to fly too close to the sun. But the exhilaration was too great. So he flew higher and higher, until the sun melted his wings, and he fell into the sea. The US Army is not an irresponsible father. So they gave us wings of hot Pennsylvania steel, guaranteed not to melt.
– Preston Packard

It’s time to show Kong that man is king!
– Preston Packard

Die, you motherf…
– Preston Packard

I know an enemy when I see one.
– Preston Packard

Keep your eyes open. Up in the trees, too.
– Hank Marlow
Why?
– Houston Brooks
Ants. Big ones.
– Hank Marlow
There’s one. Sounds like a bird, but it’s a fucking ant.
– Hank Marlow

We are dealing with a monster from a bygone era.
– Preston Packard

Don’t forget to tell me this is a bad idea.
– James Conrad
This is a bad idea.
– Mason Weaver

How you doing?
– Preston Packard
I’m fine, thank you.
– Bill Randa
Good. Glad to hear it. I was worried about you.
– Preston Packard
You are going to tell me everything I don’t know, or I’m gonna blow your head off.
– Preston Packard
Monsters exist.
– Bill Randa
No shit.
– Preston Packard
Nobody believed me. Yesterday, I was a crackpot. But today?
– Bill Randa
So this was never about geology. You dropped those charges to flush something out. Who are you?
– Preston Packard
You heard of the U.S.S. Lawton? Neither did the public. Out of a thousand young men on that ship I was the only survivor. They told my family she was sunk in battle but I know what I saw. It had no conscience. No reasoning. Just destroy. I spent the last 30 years trying to prove the truth of what I learned that day. This planet doesn’t belong to us. Ancient species owned this Earth long before mankind; and if we keep our heads buried in the sand, they will take it back. My agency is known as MONARCH. We specialize in the hunting of Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms.
– Bill Randa
You knew that thing was out here?
– Preston Packard
I’m sorry for your men, Colonel, I truly am. Get us home, with proof – so that we can send the cavalry.
– Bill Randa
I am the cavalry.
– Preston Packard

People here used to live in fear, from everything. Then something strange happened: some of the monsters here started protecting them from the other monsters trying to kill them.
– Hank Marlow

We don’t belong here.
– Mason Weaver

Are you all right?
– James Conrad
I don’t know how to answer that question right now.
– Mason Weaver

Mason Weaver…
– Landsat Steve
Is a woman.
– Landsat Steve
Last time I checked.
– Mason Weaver

That is one ugly ass bird.
– Preston Packard
