Dr. Alan Grant quotes

It's... it's a dinosaur!

They're moving in herds. They do move in herds.

[Responding to a non-impressed 10-year old] Try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous Period. You get your first look at this "six foot turkey" as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex, he'll lose you if you don't move. But no, not Velociraptor. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side, from the other two 'raptors you didn't even know were there. Because Velociraptor's a pack hunter, you see, he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this- a six-inch retractable claw, like a razor, on the middle toe. He doesn't bother to bite your jugular like a lion, oh no... He slashes at you here, [makes slashing motions below the child's chest] or here... [above the groin] Or maybe across the belly, spilling your intestines. The point is... you are alive when they start to eat you. So you know... try to show a little respect.

T. Rex doesn't want to be fed, he wants to hunt. Can't just... suppress 65 million years of gut instinct.

Bet you'll never look at birds the same way again.

Mr. Hammond, after careful consideration, I have decided not to endorse your park.

Just think of it as... kind of a big cow.

"Mr. Hammond, the phones are working."
