Dinosaur Quotes (2000)
[after the lemur children hop away after playing with Aladar]
Plio: [sarcastically] Heh. It's a shame you don't like kids.
Aladar: [sarcastically] Ugh. Nasty little vermin.
[as he is pushed and shoved by the thirsty herd trying to make their way to the water]
Aladar: [sarcastically] That's it! Keep pushing and...
[he gets shoved]
Aladar: Shoving! That's very helpful.
Aladar: Look, Neera, if we watch out for each other, we all stand a chance of reaching your nesting grounds.
Neera: You sound so sure.
Aladar: I'm not. But, it's all I know.
Zini: [while combing his hair back with his hand] What you need is a little help from the "love monkey".
[about his newborn son]
Aladar: Hey, little guy! He looks just like me!
Neera: Meet your dad. He's not as crazy as he looks.
[Aladar's baby urinates on Yar]
Yar: Yep. You're your father's son, all right.
Yar: Hey, old girl, you're wandering off a bit.
Eema: [panting] That's all I need: a monkey on my back.
Aladar: [waking up the others] Let's go, let's go! Carnotaurs!
Eema: Carnotaur! A mouthful of teeth with a bad attitude, let's go!
[Aladar dashes off to warn of the landslide]
Eema: Aladar, wait, wait! Kron'll eat you alive!
Aladar: Let him try.
[Aladar dashes off]
Eema: [sighing] I hope Kron's in a listening mood...
Eema: Move over, everybody. Bringin' in babies is what I do best!
Yar: I'd say it's been a few years since you've hatched an egg.
Eema: [laughing] You're right -
Eema: so let me practice on your head!
Aladar: [before the courtship] Let's get going: you don't want to miss Yar's annual pep talk.
Zini: Oh goody: I can't wait to hear the mating advice of an old monkey.
Aladar: Hey-hey-hey, I heard that in his day, that old monkey was quite a swinger.
Zini: You talkin' about Yar?
Aladar: Yeah, to hear him tell it, he put the "prime" in '"primate".
Zini: [sarcastically] Really?
[Frantically after the asteroid strikes]
Plio: Run, Aladar! Run! Run!
Yar: [both are giving mating advice, Yar to the males, Plio to the females] Okay boys, gather round: listen and learn from the Master.
Plio: Now girls, don't jump into the trees after the first boy with a cute back-flip: it's more fun if you keep them guessing.
Yar: And if a cute back-flip doesn't work, guess.
Plio: You're never going to forget this day, so make it one to remember.
Yar: But if you mess up, don't worry: they'll never remember.
Kron: Stay out of my way!
Zini: [whilst combing his head back with his hand] You'll want a little help from the 'love monkey'.
Neera: You really like kids, don't you?
Aladar: Well, the thin ones are a little chewy.
Neera: Kron, we've never gone this far without water: if we keep going like this, we'll lose half the Herd.
Kron: Then we save the half that deserves to live.
[Baylene's titanic size has unearthed the water]
Zini: I always did like big girls!
Baylene: Oh, Eema! I wish we were at your nesting grounds now! All this pushing and shoving about, just for a place to sleep! I'm not used to this kind of behavior.
Eema: Baylene, you've got big feet, just give 'em a kick!
[Shoves a smaller animal]
Baylene: Oh, I couldn't possibly... eh, shoo! Shoo!
Eema: Would you come on, Baylene? If you wanna get to the nesting grounds alive, show some backbone!
Aladar: Hey there!
Aladar: [after spooking Eema] Oh... sorry about that. It's just that, we overheard you talking and, um...
[Url drops a rock enthusiastically at his feet, Aladar looks confused]
Eema: Well, my word. Look at Url. He doesn't normally warm up to strangers so fast.
Baylene: [Sniffing the lemurs on Aladar's back] What an unfortunate blemish.
Eema: A good mud bath'll clear those right up.
Yar: Excuse me?
[Eema jumps back, appalled]
Kron: We've got a lot of first timers here, make sure they get it: we stop for nothing, and no one.
Bruton: [Turns to herd] If this is your first crossing, listen up! There is no water until we reach the other side. And you'd better keep up, because if a predator catches you, you're on your own. Move out!
Baylene: Oh, my goodness. It looks like a very long walk.
Eema: And hot! If you smell somethin' sizzlin', could be me!
[Suri watches the massive herd of varied dinosaurs]
Suri: Look at all the Aladars!
[after a meteor devastates Lemur Island]
Suri: [crying] They're all gone.
Zini: Hey, enough with the beauty sleep! You're ravishing already!
Zini: I believe you left a wake-up call for the dawn of time.
Kron: [sarcastically] Hm. Let the weak set the pace? Now there's an idea.
Neera: That, children, is what's known as a jerkosaurus.
Kron: [sarcastically] Hm. Let the weak set the pace? Now there's an idea.
Aladar: [about Yar] He's my grandfather - couple of generations removed.
Zini: Try a couple of species removed.
Yar: It's a cold-blooded monster from across the sea: vicious, flesh-eating!
[baby Aladar burps]
Plio: Looks like a baby to me.
Yar: Babies grow up! You keep that thing, one day, we'll turn our backs, it'll be picking us out of its teeth! Things like THAT eat things like US as snacks!
Zini: [about Aladar as a baby] This "monster"'s got no teeth! What's he gonna do? Gum us to death?
Plio: Zini, come on: look at that sweet little face. Does that look like a monster to you?
Zini: [rehearsing pickup lines alone] "Hey, sweetie. If you'll be my bride, I'll groom ya." That is good. Oh, that's good. "Girls, I'm known as the 'professor of love' and school's in session." Yeah, I still got it.
Aladar: I hope it's not contagious.
Zini: I'm a raging epidemic of romance.
Eema: Walkin' backwards, huh? Well, let me know if that gets you there any faster. Keep those little legs moving earl, or you'll get left behind.
Bruton: [Bruton has come back badly wounded] Kron! Carnotaurs!
Kron: What! They never come this far north.
Bruton: The Fireball must have driven them out...
[in the distance, a roar sounds out]
Kron: You led them right to us! Maybe we can feed them with your hide! Move the Herd out, double-time!
Baylene: Oh, joy. Blisters!
Eema: I got blisters ON my blisters.
Yar: You don't wanna know where I got blisters...
Plio: None of knows what changes, big or small, lie ahead. One thing is certain - our journey's not over. We can only hope that in some small way our time here will be remembered.
Neera: You like kids, I see.
Aladar: Well, the skinny ones are a bit chewy.
[Aladar has male courting monkey's on his back]
Aladar: Hey ladies, look at what just pulled into town! Your buffet table of love!
Yar: Oh, well. Poor Zini. The clan still has one bachelor.
[Plio looks at Aladar]
Plio: No, we have two.
[Surrounded by female lemurs]
Zini: Hey, look what I found! New neighbors! Any of you ladies up for a game of "monkey in the middle"?
[the group reaches the Nesting Grounds, featuring a large lake]
Plio: Our new home...
Zini: And it comes with a pool!
Plio: [Bruton is found wounded] We can't just leave him here!
Eema: We can if we move fast enough.
[They enter a cave]
Aladar: It's dark, but at least it's dry.
Eema: I like dry. It's the dark part I'm having trouble with.
Yar: If I could sleep THAT deep, I'd be in paradise.
Eema: If you could sleep THAT deep, honey, you'd be dead.
Bruton: Why is he doing this? Pushing them on with false hope?
Plio: It's hope that's gotten us this far.
Bruton: But why doesn't he let them accept their fate? I've accepted mine.
Plio: And what is your fate?
Bruton: To die here. It's the way things are.
Plio: Only if you give up, Bruton. It's your choice, not your fate.
Aladar: [despairing] We're not meant to survive.
Baylene: Oh, yes we were! We're here, aren't we? And how dare you waste that good fortune by simply giving up? Shame on you. Shame on you, shame on you! The worst of it is, you allowed an old fool like me to believe I was needed, that I still had a purpose... and do you know what? You were right. And I'm going to go on believing it. And I, for one, am not willing to die here!
Plio: Some things start out big, and some things start out small, very small. But sometimes the smallest thing can make the biggest changes of all.
