Dr. Ichiro Serizawa Quotes in Godzilla (2014)
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa Quotes:
Admiral William Stenz: This alpha predator of yours, doctor, do you really think he has a chance?
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: The arrogance of men is thinking nature is in our control and not the other way around. Let them fight.
Admiral William Stenz: [on mobilizing warheads] I know you don't agree with this. But my first priority is to safeguard our citizens.
[Serizawa shows Admiral Stenz a watch]
Admiral William Stenz: It's stopped.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: Yes. Eight-fifteen in the morning, August 6 1945.
Admiral William Stenz: Hiroshima.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: It was my father's.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: In 1954, the first time that a nuclear submarine ever reached the lower depths, it awakened something.
Vivienne Graham: The Americans first thought that it was the Russians. The Russians thought that it was them. All those nuclear tests in the '50s...? Not tests.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: They were trying to kill it. Him. An ancient alpha predator.
Vivienne Graham: Millions of years older than mankind. From an age when the Earth was ten times more radioactive than today. This animals and others like it consumed this radiation as a food source. As the levels on the surface naturally subsided these creatures adapted to live deeper in the oceans. Furter underground. Absorbing radiation from the planet's core. The organization we work for, Monarch, was established in the wake of this discovery. A multinational coalition formed in secrecy to search for him. Study him. Learn everything we could.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: We call him... Gojira.
Vivienne Graham: The top of the primordial ecosystem. A god, for all intents and purposes.
Ford Brody: A monster.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: Nature has an order. A power to restore balance. I believe he is that power.
Admiral William Stenz: Doctor, what do you mean by "hunting"? You think it's chasing this M.U.TO.?
Admiral William Stenz: But if the M.U.TO. is his prey... The signal shows a call. Why call up a predator?
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: No, it didn't. I think Godzilla was only listening. The M.U.TO. was calling something else.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: Gojira may be the answer. I believe he's here to restore balance. He can defeat them.
Admiral William Stenz: And what? We just stand by and watch? I'm sorry, doctor. I can't take that risk.
[watching the other MUTO wreck havoc on the news]
Vivienne Graham: It's almost 300 feet. It's much bigger than the other one.
Admiral William Stenz: This one doesn't have any wings.
Vivienne Graham: A different sex?
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: ...A female.
Vivienne Graham: THAT'S who he's been talking to.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: It must be a mating call. The female remained dormant until the male matured.
Vivienne Graham: Now they're seeking radiation... to reproduce!
[looking at a fossil]
Vivienne Graham: Oh, my God. Is it possible? Is it him?
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: No. This is much older.
