–Let me through, officer. I’m Denham.
–Just a moment.
–Well, Denham, the airplane got him.
–Oh, no, it wasn’t the airplane. It was beauty killed the beast.
Baxter: I’m just an actor with a gun whose lost his motivation.
Carl: Ann I’m telling you, your perfect. Look at you your the saddest girl I’ve ever met. You’re gonna make them weep Ann. You’re gonna break their hearts.
Ann: See that’s where your wrong Mr. Denham. I make people laugh that’s what I do.
Carl: Don’t worry Preston I’ve had a lot of practice at this. I’m real good at crapping the crappers.
Carl: Englehorn, cast off. Hoist the mainsail, raise the anchor, whatever the hell it is you do. We gotta leave.
Englehorn: I cannot do that. We’re waiting on the mainfest.
Carl: What? Who? English please.
Englehorn: Paperwork Mr. Denham.
Carl: I’ll give you another thousand if we leave now.
Englehorn: You haven’t given me the first thousand yet.
Carl: God dammit Preston! All you had to do was look her in the eyes and lie.
Carl: I keep trying to tell you Jack, there’s no money in theater. Your better off sticking with film.
Jack: No Carl it’s not about the money. I love theater.
Carl: No you don’t. If you really loved it, you would have jumped.
Carl: I need that goddamn screenplay.
Carl: The whole world will pay to see this. We’re millionaires boys and I’ll share it with all of you. In a few months, his name will be up in lights on Broadway. Kong! The Eighth Wonder of the World!
Come on, Kong, forget about me! This thing’s just never going to work, can’t you see?
Driscell: Actors. They travel the world and all the ever see is a mirror.
Englehorn: That’s the thing about cockaroaches. No matter how many times you flush them down the toilet, they always crawl back up the bowl.
Carl: Hey buddy, I’m out of the bowl. I’m drying off my wings and trekking across the lid.
Hayes: If someone were to tell you that this ship were headed for Singapore, what would you say?
Lumpy: I would say they’re full of it Mr. Hayes. We turned southwest last night.
Carl: Gentlemen please. We’re not looking for trouble.
Jimmy: No. You’re looking for something else.
Carl: Yes we are. We’re going to find Skull Island. Find it, film it and show it to the world. For 25 cents you get to see the last blank space on the map.
Lumpy: I wouldn’t be so sure of that.
Preston: What do you mean?
Lumpy: Seven years ago, me and Mr. Hayes were working our passage on a Norweign bark.
Hayes: We picked up a castaway. We found him in the water. He’d been drifting for days.
Lumpy: His ship had run aground on an island way west of Sumatra. An island hidden in fog. He spoke of a huge wall built so long ago no one knew who made it. A wall 100 foot high as strong today as it was ages ago.
Preston: Why’d they build the wall?
Lumpy: Well, the castaway, he spoke of a creature neither beast nor man but something monstrous living behind that wall.
Carl: A lion or a tiger. A man-eater. That’s how all these stories start.
Preston: What else did he say?
Lumpy: Nothing. We found him the next morning. He’d stuck a knife through his heart.
Carl: mmm-hmm Sorry fellas. You’ll have to do better than that. Monsters belong in B movies.
Hayes: If you find this place, if you go ashore with your friends and cameras, you won’t come back.
Here’s to all the future sons and daughters of King Kong.
I bring you Kong, the 8th Wonder of the World.
I didn’t mean that! Honest, I didn’t.
I’m a Libra. What sign are you? No wait, don’t tell me. I bet you’re an Aries, aren’t you?
If they wanted to keep Kong on that side of the wall, why did they take the trouble to make such a big door?
It’s the ‘golden girl,’ they want her. They want to trade 5 of their women for her.
Jack, I know how you feel. I feel the same. But there’s a national enery crisis which demands that we all rise above our private selfish interests.
Jimmy: Why does Marlow keep going up the river? Why doesn’t he turn back?
Hayes: There’s a part of him that wants to Jimmy. A part deep inside himself that sounds a warning. But there’s another part that needs to know. To defeat the thing which makes him afraid. We could not understand because we were too far and could not remember because we were traveling in the night of first ages of those ages that are gone leaving hardly a sign, and no memories. We are accustomed to look upon the shackled form of a conquered monster but there, there you could look at a thing monstrous and free.
Jimmy: It’s not an adventure story, is it Mr. Hayes.
Hayes: No Jimmy. It’s not.
Let’s not get eaten alive on this island–bring the mosquito spray!
Oh Kong, can’t you see this is never going to work?
Oh, no. It wasn’t the airplanes. It was Beauty killed the Beast.
Preston: He was right. About there still being some mystery left in this world and we could all have a piece of it, for the price of an admission ticket.
Driscell: That’s the thing you come to realize about Carl. His unfailing ability to destroy the things he loves.
Some big hard-boiled egg gets a look at a pretty face and bang–he cracks up and goes sappy.
That must be Kong. Look at the size of that monkey. *MONKEY! Hell! Look at the size of that BANANNA.
the perfect is the emeny of the good
there’s only one creature capable of leaving a footprint that size. the abominable snowman.
thr plain did kill the beast BEAUTY killed the beast
Twas beauty, killed the beast
