Admiral Brooks Quotes in Gorgo (1961)
Admiral Brooks Quotes:
[Ryan and Slade are brought to Admiral Brooks]
Admiral Brooks: Gentlemen, you've been asked to come here to supply us with any information in your possession which might be helpful. Nara Island has been destroyed. Reconnaissance aircraft have sighted the creature in this area here.
Sam Slade: Excuse me, sir, that looks as though the thing is heading for England.
Admiral Brooks: Quite. And that, in itself, calls for an explanation. Do you have one?
Joe Ryan: [crossing his arms defensively] Well, we were playing a stream of water on it during the passage. It was Professor Flaherty's instructions. Maybe it left some sort of track.
Admiral Brooks: I see. Is that possible?
Professor Flaherty: Yes, it's possible.
Admiral Brooks: [turning from a phone call] They report at least two direct hits.
Sam Slade: You've killed it?
Admiral Brooks: It's disappeared beneath the sea. They have saturated the area with depth charges which no living thing could escape. It's certainly been killed.
[Cut to Gorgo's mother breaching the ocean surface and looming above the naval destroyer]
