A decidedly odd couple with ulterior motives convince Dr. Alan Grant to go to Isla Sorna (the second InGen dinosaur lab.), resulting in an unexpected landing...and unexpected new inhabitants on the island.

Amanda: This is how you make dinosaurs?
Dr. Grant: No, this is how you play God.
Dr. Grant: [Dr. Grant is giving a lecture] Now, are there any questions?
[everyone in the audience raises their hand]
Dr. Grant: Questions not related to Jurassic Park.
[many people lower their hand]
Dr. Grant: Or the incident in San Diego, which I did not witness.
[everyone else lowers their hand]
Charlie: [Making toy Brontosaurus and Triceratops fight] Rawr! RAWR RAWR!
Dr. Grant: No, Charlie, those are herbavores, they... wouldn't be fighting with each other.
[picks up toy velociraptors]
Dr. Grant: Now, these, these are carnivores and they really like fighting with each other. They'll use their teeth and claws to rip each other's throats out.
Ellie Degler: Alan, he's three. Let's wait for the dinosaur lecture until he's five.
Erik: I read both of your books. I liked the first one more. Before you were on the island. You liked dinosaurs back then.
Dr. Grant: Back then they hadn't tried to eat me yet.
Billy Brennan: So Mr. Kirby, when you climbed K2, did you base camp at twenty-five or thirty thousand feet?
Paul Kirby: Thirty thousand feet, we were pretty close to the top.
Billy Brennan: You were about a thousand feet above, actually.
Dr. Grant: Erik, I have to tell you, I'm astonished that you've lasted eight weeks on this island.
Erik: [Stunned] ... Is that all it's been?
Dr. Grant: [the team come across a rotting carcass] It's OK. It's dead.
[a T-Rex raises its head out of the carcass]
Dr. Grant: Nobody move a muscle.
[the T-Rex roars and the team runs off]
Dr. Grant: Shit!
Dr. Grant: Why me?
Paul Kirby: He said we needed someone who'd been on the island before.
Udesky: Yes, but I did not tell you to kidnap somebody!
Dr. Grant: I have never been on this island.
Paul Kirby: Sure you have, you wrote that book.
Billy Brennan: That was Isla Nublar. This is Isla Sorna - Site B.
Dr. Grant: Oh my God.
Amanda: What is this?
Dr. Grant: It's a bird cage.
Amanda: For what?
Dr. Grant: Did you read Malcolm's book?
[Erik nods]
Dr. Grant: So?
Erik: I don't know. It was kinda preachy. And too much Chaos. Everything Chaos. It just seemed like the guy was high on himself.
Dr. Grant: That's two things we have in common.
Billy Brennan: You have to believe me, this was a stupid decision, but I did it with the best intentions.
Dr. Grant: With the best intentions? Some of the worst things imaginable have been done with the best intentions. You know what, Billy? As far as I'm concerned, you're no better than the people that built this place.
Dr. Grant: I have a theory that there are two kinds of boys. There are those that want to be astronomers, and those that want to be astronauts. The astronomer, or the paleontologist, gets to study these amazing things from a place of complete safety.
Erik: But then you never get to go into space.
Dr. Grant: Exactly. That's the difference between imagining and seeing: to be able to touch them. And that's... that's all that Billy wanted.
[a field of beautiful dinosaurs comes into view]
Paul: What are you doing? Those things are after us because of those!
Dr. Grant: Those things know we have the eggs. If I drop them in the river, they'll still be after us.
Paul: What if they catch us with them?
Dr. Grant: What if they catch us without them?
Dr. Grant: Great, just great. We're in the worst place in the world and we're not even being paid.
Udesky: If we split up, I'm going with you guys.
Dr. Grant: We haven't landed yet.
Erik: Be careful with that. T-Rex. It scares some of the smaller ones away but attracts one really big one with the fin.
Dr. Grant: This is T-Rex pee?
[Eric nods yes]
Dr. Grant: How'd you get it?
Erik: You don't wanna know.
Reporter: Are you saying you wouldn't want to get on Isla Sorna and study them if you had the chance?
Dr. Grant: No force on earth or heaven could get me on that island.
[last lines]
Erik: Where do you think they're going?
Dr. Grant: I don't know. Maybe just looking for new nesting grounds. It's a whole new world for them.
Amanda: I dare 'em to nest in Enid, Oklahoma.
Paul Kirby: [a loud roar rocks the jungle] What was that?
Billy Brennan: That's a Tyrannosaurus.
Dr. Grant: I don't think so. It sounds bigger.
Billy Brennan: [Referring to Spinosaurus] I don't remember that one being on InGen's list.
Dr. Grant: It wasn't on their list. Which makes you wonder what else they were up to.
Billy Brennan: How do you know the Kirbys?
Cooper: Through our church.
Charlie: Daddy, Daddy, this is a herbivore and that's the Dinosaur Man.
[referring to Alan Grant]
[first lines]
Enrique Cardoso: Here you go, my friend.
Ben Hildebrand: Make sure you get as close as you can! I'll give you something extra if you make it a good trip!
Enrique Cardoso: Hey, I'm gonna get you close, my friend, but not too close, eh. You don't want to be eaten.
Paul: [in abandoned complex]
[goes up to snack machine and takes coins out]
Paul: Ahem... I need change here, it only takes quarters, I think I've got... I've got about ten...
[Billy breaks the glass on the snack machines with a kick and then reaches in and takes some things out]
Paul: [Paul attempts to do the same, glass doesn't break; Paul limps away]
Erik: Dr. Grant, know something, Dr. Grant? Billy was right.
Dr. Grant: Either way... you probably won't get off this island alive.
Udesky: We'll search for your son... in the direction that they're going.
Paul: Excellent, excellent...
Dr. Grant: On this island there is no such thing as safe.
Udesky: Cooper! If you see anything, yell up!
Cooper: Naw, I thought I'd keep it to myself!
Paul: [Paul and Amanda are having an argument] Fine, go ahead and scream and when that "Tricikloplots" attacks you, don't come crying to me.
Billy Brennan: I rescued your hat.
Dr. Grant: Well... that's the important thing.
Ellie Degler: So what were you doing?
Dr. Grant: Evolving.
[repeated line]
Paul: Dr. Grant said that is a very bad idea.
Dr. Grant: Reverse Darwinism - survival of the most idiotic.
Dream Velociraptor: Dream Velociraptor: Alan! ALAN!
