Dr. Grant Quotes in Jurassic Park III (2001)


Dr. Grant Quotes:

  • Amanda: This is how you make dinosaurs?

    Dr. Grant: No, this is how you play God.

  • Charlie: [Making toy Brontosaurus and Triceratops fight] Rawr! RAWR RAWR!

    Dr. Grant: No, Charlie, those are herbavores, they... wouldn't be fighting with each other.

    [picks up toy velociraptors]

    Dr. Grant: Now, these, these are carnivores and they really like fighting with each other. They'll use their teeth and claws to rip each other's throats out.

    Ellie Degler: Alan, he's three. Let's wait for the dinosaur lecture until he's five.

  • Erik: I read both of your books. I liked the first one more. Before you were on the island. You liked dinosaurs back then.

    Dr. Grant: Back then they hadn't tried to eat me yet.

  • Dr. Grant: [Dr. Grant is giving a lecture] Now, are there any questions?

    [everyone in the audience raises their hand]

    Dr. Grant: Questions not related to Jurassic Park.

    [many people lower their hand]

    Dr. Grant: Or the incident in San Diego, which I did not witness.

    [everyone else lowers their hand]

  • Dr. Grant: Oh my God.

    Amanda: What is this?

    Dr. Grant: It's a bird cage.

    Amanda: For what?

  • Dr. Grant: [the team come across a rotting carcass] It's OK. It's dead.

    [a T-Rex raises its head out of the carcass]

    Dr. Grant: Nobody move a muscle.

    [the T-Rex roars and the team runs off]

    Dr. Grant: Shit!

  • Dr. Grant: Did you read Malcolm's book?

    [Erik nods]

    Dr. Grant: So?

    Erik: I don't know. It was kinda preachy. And too much Chaos. Everything Chaos. It just seemed like the guy was high on himself.

    Dr. Grant: That's two things we have in common.

  • Billy Brennan: You have to believe me, this was a stupid decision, but I did it with the best intentions.

    Dr. Grant: With the best intentions? Some of the worst things imaginable have been done with the best intentions. You know what, Billy? As far as I'm concerned, you're no better than the people that built this place.

  • Dr. Grant: Erik, I have to tell you, I'm astonished that you've lasted eight weeks on this island.

    Erik: [Stunned] ... Is that all it's been?

  • Dr. Grant: I have a theory that there are two kinds of boys. There are those that want to be astronomers, and those that want to be astronauts. The astronomer, or the paleontologist, gets to study these amazing things from a place of complete safety.

    Erik: But then you never get to go into space.

    Dr. Grant: Exactly. That's the difference between imagining and seeing: to be able to touch them. And that's... that's all that Billy wanted.

    [a field of beautiful dinosaurs comes into view]

  • Dr. Grant: Why me?

    Paul Kirby: He said we needed someone who'd been on the island before.

    Udesky: Yes, but I did not tell you to kidnap somebody!

    Dr. Grant: I have never been on this island.

    Paul Kirby: Sure you have, you wrote that book.

    Billy Brennan: That was Isla Nublar. This is Isla Sorna - Site B.

  • Paul: What are you doing? Those things are after us because of those!

    Dr. Grant: Those things know we have the eggs. If I drop them in the river, they'll still be after us.

    Paul: What if they catch us with them?

    Dr. Grant: What if they catch us without them?

  • Erik: Be careful with that. T-Rex. It scares some of the smaller ones away but attracts one really big one with the fin.

    Dr. Grant: This is T-Rex pee?

    [Eric nods yes]

    Dr. Grant: How'd you get it?

    Erik: You don't wanna know.

  • Dr. Grant: Great, just great. We're in the worst place in the world and we're not even being paid.

  • Dr. Grant: We haven't landed yet.

  • Reporter: Are you saying you wouldn't want to get on Isla Sorna and study them if you had the chance?

    Dr. Grant: No force on earth or heaven could get me on that island.

  • Dr. Grant: Either way... you probably won't get off this island alive.

  • Dr. Grant: On this island there is no such thing as safe.

  • Billy Brennan: [Referring to Spinosaurus] I don't remember that one being on InGen's list.

    Dr. Grant: It wasn't on their list. Which makes you wonder what else they were up to.

  • Paul Kirby: [a loud roar rocks the jungle] What was that?

    Billy Brennan: That's a Tyrannosaurus.

    Dr. Grant: I don't think so. It sounds bigger.

  • Billy Brennan: I rescued your hat.

    Dr. Grant: Well... that's the important thing.

  • [last lines]

    Erik: Where do you think they're going?

    Dr. Grant: I don't know. Maybe just looking for new nesting grounds. It's a whole new world for them.

    Amanda: I dare 'em to nest in Enid, Oklahoma.

  • Ellie Degler: So what were you doing?

    Dr. Grant: Evolving.

  • Dr. Grant: Reverse Darwinism - survival of the most idiotic.

  • Larraby: I told you not to call me unless the world was going to end.

    Dr. Grant: I don't know about the world ending, but we've been tracking a pan-dimensional anomaly that seems to be moving toward our time-space continuum.

    Larraby: Dr. Grant, I speak Greek, not geek.

  • Dr. Grant: Let me put it this way. Concussion is still alive, and he's coming back.

    Larraby: He was destroyed.

    Dr. Grant: Nope.

    Larraby: We were there. We both saw it.

    Dr. Grant: Nope.

  • Jack Shepard: Cindy, what are you wearing?

    Cindy Collins: It's my alter eggo.

    Jack Shepard: You mean your "alter ego"?

    Cindy Collins: I'm a princess.

    Jack Shepard: Cindy, you're not a princess.

    Cindy Collins: But I look pretty.

    Jack Shepard: Yeah, but pretty girls don't have any real friends and they never get any respect. Take Miss Holloway, for instance.

    Marsha Holloway: Hey.

    Dr. Grant: [Cindy throws the 2.5-ton object] Scatter...

  • Cindy Collins: [singing] A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H-I-J-K-L-M-N-O-P...

    Jack Shepard: Stop that. You're singing the alphabet. That's not a power. And your voice is average, it's not super.

    Cindy Collins: It is, too, super.

    [throwing the table]

    Dr. Grant: Get another table in here, please. Right away.
