DialogueEdit

News reader:  The major cities of the world are being destroyed one-by-one by the monsters: Moscow by Rodan, Peking by Mothra, London by Manda, Paris by Baragon.  And, here's a special news bulletin:  Godzilla is now in New York City.  The city is being invaded by Godzilla!

Major Tada:  I didn't think Tokyo would escape this terror, but Rodan, Godzilla, and Manda are all here at the same time.
Enraged soldier:  That's correct.  New York, London, Moscow—they were all very unlucky.
Announcer:  Emergency!  Emergency!  Mothra is now in District Number 5.

Kilaak Queen:  Ghidorah is a space monster.  The monsters from Earth cannot win.  I will get in touch with you, when you feel like giving up.
