Earl Bassett edit

  • [to Grady after losing at rock-paper-scissors] No! Rock rips through paper!
  • [yelling to Grady] Will you shut up and get off the damn ground!
  • Goddamn worms never give you a break!
  • [to Grady] Doesn't anything get you down?
  • [as Burt arrives] That ain't no Graboid. It's something even more dangerous!

Burt Gummer edit

  • I am completely out of ammo. That's never happened to me before.
  • I feel I was denied critical need-to-know information.
  • [referring to his weapons] When you need it, and don't have it, [pause] you sing a different tune.
  • You know Grady, some people think I'm overprepared, paranoid, maybe even a little crazy. But they never met any Pre-Cambrian lifeforms did they?

Grady Hoover edit

  • [referring to the shriekers] You mean they've been acting so smart because they're so stupid?
  • [repeated line] Sorry, I forgot.
  • [after the truck gets dragged on a wild ride by a Graboid] Earl, that's gonna be the first ride at my theme park!

Dialogue edit

[Earl and Grady discover a ton of Graboids are left]
Earl Bassett: We're gonna need some help!
Grady: Who'd be crazy enough to help us with this mess?!

[watching a graboid laying on the ground as it starts to moan]
Earl Bassett: Something's wrong with it. Must be sick.
Grady Hoover: Probably ate someone that didn't agree with it.

[it's night, Grady and Earl are waiting on top of their stranded truck for Pedro to arrive, an explosion sounds in the distance]
Grady Hoover:[referring to Burt] Jesus! Bagged himself another one.
Earl Bassett: The man never sleeps.
[two more explosions sound in the distance]
Burt Gummer: [over radio] Guys, Burt here. Doing a little night fishing. Got three of 'em on a cluster charge. I'd say we're about even now. Over.
Earl Bassett: Come on, Burt. This isn't a competition.
Burt Gummer: [over radio] Well, who's competing? I'm just saying the score is tied, that's all. Over.
Grady Hoover: Well, 'son', no it isn't, cuz we just caught a live one. How 'bout that.
Burt Gummer: [over radio] A live one? How in the hell...
Grady Hoover: Well, that's our little secret. Happy hunting, Burt. [turns radio off]
