  • Stick to me, kid, and you'll wear diamonds.


Reporter: If I don't get a story I'll lose my job.
Carl Denham: Alright, tell 'em this: Carl Denham, the boy who was gonna make a million dollars off King Kong, is flat broke.

Helstrom: [sees Denham and Englehorn sitting in a Dakang bar] Carl Denham! Don't you remember me? Nils Helstrom.
Carl Denham: Why, for the love of Mike. Helstrom! Sure I remember you! [indicates Englhorn] Oh, this is Captain Englehorn. Captain Helstrom.
[Englehorn and Helstrom shake hands]
Carl Denham: Sit down. [to Englehorn] Say, do you know who this is? The man who gave me the map of Kong's Island. And he wants to know if I remember him? [laughs] Have a drink.
[pours Helstrom a drink]
Helstrom: [to Englehorn] So, that was your ship came in last night?
Englehorn: Mine and Denham's.
Helstrom: [to Denham] I heard about you in Singapore. How you had captured the biggest animal on earth and taken him back to New York.

Helstrom: Yeah, you're broke too.
Carl Denham: Broke? [chuckles] I'm shattered.

Red: [after hearing about the last trip to Kong's island] He expect us to go ashore?
Helstrom: Sure. He's got to have a bodyguard, hasn't he? Say, you know there were a dozen sailors killed on the last voyage he made here?
Red: Killed? By them animals?
Helstrom: Yeah. But, you see Denham and the Skipper came out all right. Ah, but you don't have to worry. There are plenty of rifles aboard. If I were captain, I certainly wouldn't take my crew into danger.

Carl Denham: If you want me to, I'll give Helstrom a tip that he's too thick with the crew.
Englehorn: Go ahead. It's bad for discipline.
Carl Denham: [sees Charlie leading a procession of the crew] Ha. We must be in Russia. Here comes the Committee of the Workers.
Charlie: Captain Englehorn!
Englehorn: Well?
Charlie: Captain, I went down in the forward hold.
Englehorn: What of it?
Charlie: Captain, I found something!
Englehorn: What's the matter? Found what?
Carl Denham: [sees Charlie reach into the crowd of sailors and pull out Hilda, who was stowing away in the forward hold] Holy mackerel!

Hilda: Tony, won't you please come down? Tony? Tony?
Carl Denham: You'll never catch a monkey that way.
Hilda: Did you ever catch a monkey?
Carl Denham: Did I ever catch...? [dry chuckle] Lady, you'd be surprised.

Carl Denham: Skipper, believe it or not, there's a little Kong!
Englehorn: What? A little K -... How little?
Carl Denham: Well, just a little one... about twelve feet high.
