Laurence Quotes in Twister (1996)


Laurence Quotes:

  • Joey: [Discussing at Meg's on the tornadoes they have seen so far at Meg's home at her dining table, eating steak and eggs] No, that was a good size twister. What was it, an F3?

    Bill: Solid F2.

    Melissa: See, now you have lost me again.

    Bill: It's the Fujita scale. It measures a tornado's intensity by how much it eats.

    Melissa: Eats?

    Bill: Destroys.

    Laurence: That one we encountered back there was a strong F2, possibly an F3.

    Beltzer: Maybe we'll see some 4's.

    Haynes: That would be sweet!

    Bill: 4 is good. 4 will relocate your house very efficiently.

    Melissa: Is there an F5?

    [Everyone goes dead silent]

    Melissa: What would that be like?

    Jason 'Preacher' Rowe: The Finger of God.

    Melissa: None of you has ever seen an F5?

    Bill: ...Just one of us.

    Laurence: [On radio] We have touchdown! Touchdown! Tornado is on the ground!

    Haynes: [Hands radio to Beltzer] Listen to this!

    Laurence: Looks like it's heading down Route 33.

    Bill: Jo, we're on 33.

    Jo: What's the path?

    Laurence: Looks like it's going about 35 mph.

    Rabbit: [Looking around] Can you see this?

    Allan Sanders: I can not see this. Where is it? Hello? Which way you guys looking?

    Bill: Where, where, where...

    Jo: Direction, Rabbit.

    Rabbit: North northeast!

    Beltzer: Do you see it?

    Haynes: No.

    Rabbit: North northeast, you copy?

    Bill: Shit, it's coming right at us!

    Laurence: Axis has gone vertical, gone vertical. Sucker's really gaining up strength.

    Jo: You see it?

    Bill: No...

    [Takes radio]

    Bill: Beltzer! We do not have a visual. Repeat, we do not have a visual. Help us out here!

    Jo: Where is it?

    Beltzer: Yeah, I got it Billy. Best motion I've ever seen. Looks like the base of this sucker's at least a half mile wide.

    Bill: Rabbit?

    Rabbit: If you are going east on 7, it should be coming right over that hill in a matter of minutes!

    Allan Sanders: This is the one man, I feel it.

  • Dr. Jonas Miller: Today, we're gonna make history, so stick around. 'Cause the days of sniffing the dirt are over.

    Laurence: Better than what *you* sniff.

    Bill: We'll see who gets there first... "pal".

    Dr. Jonas Miller: [to Bill] Oh, by the way. I really enjoy your weather reports.

    [Jonas' crew laugh]

    Bill: [runs at Jonas] You slime! I'm not through with you yet!

    [Jo's crew break up the fight]

    Laurence: [of Jonas] He's a corporate kiss-butt, man!

    Laurence: Sausages!

    2nd Biker: No stars?

    Laurence: Stars... and sausages!

  • Laurence: Of course I wasn't alright. I'd just been knocked unconscious and now an American, who'd never driven a stick shift, was driving my car down the wrong side of the road.

  • Laurence: When I get nervous, I never say anything. I just sit there and get uptight.

  • Laurence: In finding the right person you need someone with all the right similarities, yet all the right differences. Someone to read your mind instinctively, yet cover your weaknesses.

  • Laurence: [on seeing his sister holding a shotgun] I'm still your brother
