The ancient war between humans and a race of giants is reignited when Jack, a young farmhand fighting for a kingdom and the love of a princess, opens a gateway between the two worlds.

Elmont: Fear of heights?
Jack: Fear of falling.
Elmont: Well then don't fall!
Wicke: Why is it that people always scream before they die? Do they think it's gonna help them?
Elmont: This is a terrible idea.
Jack: Have you ever killed a giant before?
Elmont: And you've killed, what, one? Which makes you an expert now?
Jack: There's something behind me, isn't there?
Isabelle: Is this your farm?
Jack: Yes. No. Sort of. My uncle and I are tenant partners. We just work the lands.
Isabelle: And, uh, these books?
Jack: Yeah, they... they're mine.
Isabelle: It's unusual for a farm boy.
Jack: Judging by the cover, are we?
Isabelle: What do you like reading?
Jack: I like a good adventure.
Isabelle: In books or in life?
Jack: Until I can find a way to get off this farm, I have to settle for books.
Isabelle: And, uh, that mark on your face, was that an adventure?
Jack: Um, I got in a fight today. At the market.
Isabelle: What about?
Jack: I was defending the honor of the princess.
Isabelle: Princess? Really? You sure you didn't read that in one of your books? How did you know it was the princess?
Jack: I didn't. I just saw she needed help. It wasn't until the guardians showed up that I realized who she was. Anyway, it happened really fast. I wouldn't blame her if she didn't remember me. What are you running away from?
Isabelle: Who says I'm running away from anything? Maybe I'm running toward something. Just looking for an adventure of my own.
Jack: Well, so far you've run toward the light on my porch... Your Highness.
Isabelle: You know, for someone who's not wildly keen on heights, you're doing awfully well.
Jack: Yeah, I've been doing a little trick Crawe taught me.
Isabelle: What's the trick?
Jack: Picture something just ahead of you within arm's reach.
[helps Isabelle down so she is within arm's reach]
Jack: Something that makes you happy.
Isabelle: Sounds easy enough.
Jack: It really is.
Isabelle: If I hadn't run away, none of this would have happened. A princess is such a useless thing.
Jack: If you hadn't run away, Roderick would have taken over the kingdom with no warning. Your running away just might have give Cloister a fighting chance. So no one's useless, least of all the princess. That's why we need to get you back, because one day you'll be the queen. From then on you'll have the power to make the world a better place. Isabelle... imagine all the good things you could do.
Isabelle: [touched] That's what my mother used to say.
Jack: Am I dead?
Elmont: Not just yet.
Jack: I've got an idea.
Elmont: What?
Jack: I'm gonna wake a sleeping giant.
Elmont: Well, that doesn't seem like a good idea.
Elmont: Well, she's not in the house. This is the only other place she could have gone.
Crawe: If she climbed down, we would have seen her.
Elmont: [notices a footprint in the mud] She didn't climb down. She climbed up.
Roderick: Why would she do that?
Crawe: If she were cold.
Elmont: Or hungry.
Jack: [to himself] Or looking for an adventure.
Isabelle: [Jack arrives to rescue her from the giants] You're here!
Jack: You sound surprised.
Isabelle: Yeah, well, we're miles up and you're afraid of heights.
Jack: I'm not afraid. Just not wildly keen.
King Brahmwell: [as Jack returns Isabelle home safely] As a king, I can reward you with many things. As a father, I can never reward you enough.
Jack: [inside the enormous castle hall] It's just like my place.
Jack: Matching armor. Nice. You look beautiful.
Isabelle: Thank you.
Jack: They're waiting for you. But...
[Jack grabs his book from his pocket and gives it to Isabelle]
Jack: To remember me by.
[Isabelle looks at it, but does not take it]
Isabelle: I won't need any help remembering.
Roderick: Did you really think you were the hero of this story? Don't you know we all think that?
[he tries to stab Elmont's hand, but he takes the blade and stabs his own hand, which goes through Roderick's foot]
Elmont: I may not be the hero of this story, but at least I get to see the end of it!
Elmont: There's something behind me, isn't there?
Elmont: Get the king to safety!
King Brahmwell: [draws his sword] Like hell!
Jack: Isabelle, hold on tight.
[grabs a liana he has cut in the giant tree]
Jack: Ready?
Isabelle: No...
Jack: JUMP!
[they jump from the falling tree, hanging on to the liana. They swing around the tree before the tree begins to fall alarmingly fast and they are headed for the ground]
Isabelle: Jack, hold me!
[Jack sees a haystack, aims for it and lets go. They hit it, but keep gliding forward in the mud, heading for a sharp farm object. They stop just in the nick of time for hitting it]
Jack: Well, that worked out better than I expected.
General Fallon: We may have forgotten Erik the Red's face. We may have forgotten the sound of his voice. But we NEVER forget a smell. The girl is of Erik the Red's blood!
Isabelle: You must think I'm very silly.
Jack: No. I just wish that... Well, earlier, at the market...
Isabelle: Thank you... for defending my honor, Jack.
Jack: Anytime. Here, I'll take your coat. And until you find your own adventure...
Isabelle: [receives a book from Jack] "The Giants of Gantua."
Jack: My father used to read that to me.
Isabelle: That was always my mother's job.
Jack: I hope you find what you're looking for, Your Highness.
Isabelle: Call me Isabelle.
Jack: Isabelle.
General Fallon: Here comes the thunder.
Uncle: [p.o.'d at his nephew for the 'goods' received in trade for his horse] ... I don't ask for much... In return for all those years I put food in your belly; clothes on your back; a roof over your head... So what do I have to show for it?... Beans!
Jack: I'll, I'll take them to The Abbey tomorrow and we'll tell the monks what happened!
Uncle: You believe that story?
Jack: I mean, he was a monk!
Uncle: -Cuz he wore a robe... funny haircut?
