Maj. Mark BairdEdit

  • How do you reason with a 60 foot giant?
  • Can't you find us some warehouse to keep him in temporarily?


  • Dr. Carmichael:: There's nothing in our directives about a 60 foot giant!
  • Sgt. Luis Murillo: Giants can run fast. They have long legs.


Dr. Carmichael: The foot that made that print is about ten times the size of a normal man's. That would make him about sixty feet tall.
Joyce Manning: Glenn was sixty feet tall!

Joyce Manning: Do you know what it's like, just sitting around waiting for news?
Maj. Mark Baird: You mind if I suggest a remedy? It's an old one , but it usually works. Find something else to occupy your mind. Do you have a job?
Joyce Manning: I write copy for an advertising agency.
Maj. Mark Baird: Now that should help you forget your troubles.
Joyce Manning: I can imagine myself going back to write all those tired old adjectives: "Tremendous," "Gigantic," "Colossal!" You know what they'd mean to me now, don't you? Glenn! A colossal freak, Major, and he's my brother!
