    Will Stanton: Well, I got the Sign, didn't I? On my own! I didn't see any of you helping out, Ok?

    Merriman Lyon: You were selfish and irresponsible. Every day, the Dark is tightening its grip. Only you stand in its way.

    Will Stanton: Yeah. You keep telling me that.

    Will Stanton: The Great Hall.

    Merriman Lyon: When the Dark reaches it's peak, meet us there.

    Dr. Rick Marshall: Would you grow up?

    Holly Cantrell: Oh, my God!

    Dr. Rick Marshall: Yes, he pooped me out!

    Will Stanton: And now you guys are friends?

    Dr. Rick Marshall: While I was snaking my way through his bowels, I don't know, I... I must have dislodged some sort of intestinal blockage. And, yes, he's in a much better mood now. So can we move on? I would really like to go home.

    Will Stanton: You were deuced out by a dinosaur. That is incredibly cool.
