Dialogue edit

[first lines]
Remy Royce-Graff: God damn it!
Stewart Graff: Your last words to me last night; your first word in the morning. Ever thought about expanding your vocabulary?

Dr. Stockle:You forecasted an earthquake in the 3 to 4 point range this morning. We HAD an earthquake in the 3 to 4 point range this morning. I'm impressed.
Walter Russell:Thank you sir.
Dr. Stockle:However, isn't that rather slender evidence for predicting a catastrophe?

Mayor Lewis: The governor and I aren't even in the same party. If this turns out to be a false alarm, he'll make me out to be the biggest fool west of the Mississippi.
Dr. Stockle: Second biggest. I'll top the list.

[last lines]
Dr. James Vance: This used to be a helluva town, officer.
Sgt. Lew Slade: Yeah...
