[to Ian] You like to have kids but you don't want to be with them, do you?

Kelly Malcolm

Dr. Ian Malcolm: You sent my girlfriend to this island alone?
John Hammond: Sent is hardly the word. She couldn't be restrained.

[to Kelly] Hey, you want some good parental advice? Don't listen to me.

Dr. Ian Malcolm

[referring to Ian and Kelly] Do you see any family resemblance?

Nick Van Owen

Nick Van Owen: You looking for a problem?
Dieter: And I found you, didn't I?

Sarah Harding: Oh, shut up.

[to Ian] I've worked around predators since I was 20 years old. Lions, jackals, hyenas... you.

Sarah Harding

Peter Ludlow: Roland, there's a job for you in San Diego if you want it.
Roland Tembo: No thank you. I believe I've spent enough time in the company of death.

It is absolutely imperative that we work with the Costa Rican Department of Biological Preserves to establish a set of rules for the preservation and isolation of that island.

John Hammond

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Eddie, is there any reason to think that the radio in the trailer might work?
Eddie Carr: If you feel at all qualified, try turning the switch to "on."

Gray: Can we stay with you?
Claire: I am never leaving you again!
GrayZach: [points to Owen] No, no, him. We mean him.

Lowery: Someone has to stay behind.
Vivian: Uh, I have a boyfriend.
