Kyle Chandler: Dr. Mark Russell
Mark Russell : Jesus! How many of these things are there?
Dr. Ishiro Serizawa : Seventeen. And counting, after Gojira.
Mark Russell : Seventeen!
Dr. Vivienne Graham : Most of them were discovered in deep hibernation. While others we've - contained at top-secret sites around the world. Cambodia and Mexico, Skull Island. We even found one in Wyoming. They're everywhere.
Dr. Ishiro Serizawa : There are some things beyond our understanding, Mark. We must accept them and *learn* from them. Because these moments of crisis are also potential moments of faith. A time - when we either come together or fall apart. Nature always has a way of balancing itself. The only question is... What part - will we play.
Mark Russell : Did you just make that up?
Dr. Ishiro Serizawa : No. I read it in a fortune cookie once.
Dr. Ishiro Serizawa : A really long fortune cookie.
Mark Russell : You are out of your goddamn mind! First, you put our daughter's life in danger and now you get to decide the fate of the world. That's rich, Emma!
Dr. Emma Russell : I couldn't be more sane, and Madison couldn't be stronger. After we lost Andrew, I trained her to survive. And at least now, she will have a fighting chance.
Mark Russell : A fighting chance? Why don't you listen to yourself? It's not all math, Emma. Some things, you can't control.
Dr. Emma Russell : And there are some things you can't run from.
Mark Russell : This won't bring him back to us.
Mark Russell : How's that?
Dr. Ilene Chen : Myth is our compass. It's something my mom used to say. She believed our stories about monsters and dragons, could help us find the Titans, and restore our connection to nature.
Mark Russell : Wait, your mother? You're second-generation Monarch?
Dr. Ilene Chen : Third. It runs in the family.
Mark Russell : That's incredible! I don't suppose your family has any tips on slaying dragons, do they?
Dr. Ilene Chen : Slaying dragons is a Western concept. In the East, they are sacred. Divine creatures who brought wisdom, strength. Even redemption.
Mark Russell : [SAN FRANCISCO 2014; calling out for his son] An-drew! An-drew! An-drew! An-drewww!
Mark Russell : Listen to me: They'll *think* it's one o' them. You use the wrong *frequency* on one of 'em - And you're gonna be responsible for a thousand San Franciscos!
Colonel Diane Foster : The oxygen destroyer, why wasn't Monster Zero affected?
Chief Warrant Officer Barnes : I mean, I'm no scientist, but I think it has something to do with his goddamn head growing back.
Dr. Rick Stanton : Well, I've never seen anything like it. It violates everything we know about the natural order.
Dr. Ilene Chen : Unless he's not part of the natural order.
Dr. Ishiro Serizawa : What do you mean?
[shows a cave painting of Godzilla and Monster Zero]
Dr. Ilene Chen : I was able to piece this together.
Sam Coleman : Well, he looks vaguely familiar.
Dr. Ilene Chen : It tells of a great dragon who fell from the stars. A Hydra whose storm swallowed both men and gods alike.
Mark Russell : What, you mean an alien?
Dr. Ilene Chen : Yes. He's not part of our natural order. And he's not mean to be here.
Dr. Ishiro Serizawa : A false king.
Dr. Rick Stanton : An invasive species. That could explain how he's creating these massive storms and the effect he's having on the other Titans. It's almost he's reshaping the planet to his own liking.
Dr. Ishiro Serizawa : These legends, what did they call him?
Dr. Ilene Chen : Ghidorah. "The one who is many."
Mark Russell : Ghi-what?
Sam Coleman : She said, "Gonorrhea."
Mark Russell : Huh?
Dr. Ilene Chen : Ghidorah!
Chief Warrant Officer Barnes : Mayday, mayday! This is Raptor One to Argo. Argo, do you copy?
Colonel Diane Foster : Copy, Raptor One. What's your status?
Chief Warrant Officer Barnes : We're screwed, that's what. And we got kids on board. We're gonna need immediate mid-air retrieval.
Chief Warrant Officer Barnes : Lock on their position, and prepare the hangar for an emergency landing.
Dr. Rick Stanton : Hangar doors are unresponsive.
Colonel Diane Foster : Manual override?
Dr. Rick Stanton : They're stuck!
Mark Russell : [gets out of his seat] All right, which way to the hangar?
Sam Coleman : I can show you. Anybody else? I know the way. Come on.
Dr. Rick Stanton : Hope you got a big wrench.
