KING KONG [2005]

The Eighth Wonder Of The World 

Every time you reach out for something you care about
fate come along and snatches it away. 
But not this time, Annie. Not this time.

 Good things never last, Mr. Denham.
~Ann Darrow

Carl: I keep telling you, Jack, there's no money in theater.
You're much better off sticking with film.
Jack: I don't do it for the money, Carl.
I happen to love the theater.
Carl: No, you don't.
If you really loved it, you would have jumped.

Hayes: If someone were to tell you this ship was headed for Singapore what would you say?
 Lumpy: I would say they're full of it, Mr. Hayes.
 Well, 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: 7 years ago, me and Mr. Hayes were working our passage on a Norwegian bark.
 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 Sumatera.
 An island hidden in fog.
 He spoke of a huge wall, built so long ago, no one knew who'd made it.
 A wall of 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: Sorry, fellows, 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 your cameras, you won't come back.
 Just as long as you understand that.

 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 adventurous story, is it, Mr. Hayes?
 Hayes: No, Jimmy, it's not.

 Baxter: Miss Darrow was a great gal, no question.
And she was a wonderful person.
It's a terrible loss and we're all gonna miss her.
Jack: I always knew you were nothing like the tough guy you play on screen.
I just never figured you for a coward.
Baxter: Hey, pal! Hey, wake up!
Heroes don't look like me, not in the real world.
In the real world they got bad teeth, a bald spot, and a beer gut.
I'm just an actor with a gun, who's lost his motivation.

 Hayes: If anything happens, I want you to run. You understand?
Jimmy: I'm not a coward. I ain't gonna run.
Hayes: It's not about being brave, Jimmy.

 Just as you go down for the third and final time
as you heard disappears beneath the waves and your lungs fill with water
do you know what happens in those last precious seconds before you drown?
Your whole life passes before your eyes.
~Carl Denham

Carl: You got a boat full of chloroform we could put to good use.
Englehorn: You wanna trap the ape? [laughing] I don't think so.
 Carl: Isn't that what you do? Live animal capture? I heard you were the best.

The whole world will pay to see this.
We're millionaire, boys! I'll share it with all of you!
In a few months his name will be up in lights on Broadway!
Kong, The Eight Wonder of the World!
~Carl Denham

Preston: He was right, about there still being some mystery left in this world,and we can all have a piece of it, for the price of an admission ticket.
Jack: That's the thing you come to learn about Carl.
His unfailing ability to destroy the things he loves.

Man: What does it matter? Airplanes got him.
Carl: It wasn't the airplane.
It was beauty killed the beast.
