  • GO!
  • If we go to war, we could lose all we've built. Home. Family. Future.
  • APE HOME! HUMAN HOME! Do not come back.
  • From humans Koba learned hate. But nothing else.
  • I always think...ape better than human. I see now...how much like them we are.


  • Scars make you strong.
  • Caesar. For years I was a prisoner in their lab. They cut me, tortured me. You freed me. I would do anything you ask. But we must show strength!
  • Enough guns here to kill every ape. Must warn Caesar. Who knows what humans are really doing up there?
  • Humans attack your sons! You let them stay?! Put apes in danger! Caesar love humans more than apes! More than your sons!
  • Humans kill Caesar! Burn ape home! Go! Get them! Apes must attack human city! Fight back! Come! Fight for Caesar!
  • [After killing Ash] Caesar gone. Apes follow Koba now.
  • Humans! You ape prisoner now! You will know life in cage! More humans out there! Go! Find them!


  • We are survivors! Now, they may have got their hands on some of our guns. But that does not make them men. They are animals! We will push them back! Drive them down! And they will not get through these doors!
  • I'm saving the human race.


  • Run.
  • Koba said we're too loyal to your father. Protect yourself.


Maurice: Another son.
Caesar: Makes me think how far we've come, Maurice.
Maurice: Seems long ago. Still think about them?
Caesar: Humans? Sometimes.
Maurice: Didn't know them like you did. Only saw their bad side.
Caesar: Good, bad...doesn't matter now. Humans destroyed each other.
Maurice: Apes fight too.
Caesar: But we are family.

Alexander: Dad.
Ellie: Malcolm, what are you doing?
Alexander: Dad?
Ellie: Malcolm.
Malcolm: It's okay. Put your guns down.
Foster: You can't be serious.
Malcolm: Do it.
Caesar: GO!
Carver: Holy shit.
Malcolm: Holy shit.

Carver: I shot him. I was scared. I didn't know what to do.
Dreyfus: Jesus Christ. How many were there?
Malcolm: A lot. Like, 80. At least.
Carver: Okay... You're not hearing what he's saying. They spoke!
Dreyfus: That is not possible.
Malcolm: I'm telling you, Dreyfus, they did and it was incredible.
Carver:Incredible? They're talking apes! With big-ass Spears!
Dreyfus: Please! I don't know exactly what you think you saw or heard... But you have to calm down, okay? What about the virus, Ellie? Any chance of contagion?
Ellie: We're all genetically immune or we would've been dead a long time ago.
Carver: You don't know that for sure.
Malcolm: She worked with the CDC. She knows.
Ellie: What are we gonna do?
Dreyfus: I don't know. We need that power.
Malcom: He could've killed us, but he didn't.
Carver: Maybe he kept us alive, so they could follow us. They find out where we are, and they kill us all!
Dreyfus: What do you mean, "he"?
Dreyfus: That's what we're trying to tell you. It was unlike anything you've ever seen before, and the leader... He was remarkable.
Carver: Really? Is that what you thought?
Ellie: It's what we saw.
Alexander: Yeah, it's what we all saw.
Dreyfus: Not a word of this back at the colony, you understand me? Not a word until we can figure out what to do.
Carver: You gotta be kidding me.
Dreyfus: No, I'm not kidding. I don;t want to create a panic.

Dreyfus: Everyone! Everyone, you have to calm down! Everybody. Everybody! Please! We're all immune! We're all immune, or we wouldn't still be here!
Refugee 1: How did they find us?
Dreyfus: We found them.
Refugee 1: You knew they were out there!
Refugee 2: What if they come back?
'Refugees: Yeah!
Dreyfus: If they come back-if they come back... They'll be sorry they ever did! Now, this city may not have the manpower it once did... But it has the firepower. Those stockpiles left behind... By fema, the national guard, we have it all. Look... I know why you're scared. I'm scared, too, believe me. But I recognize the trust you've all placed in me. We've been through hell together. But you all know what we're up against. We're almost out of fuel. Which means no more power... Which means we could slip back to the way things were. That dam up there was the answer. We just had no idea they were up there, too.
Refugee 2: So, what do we do now?
Refugees: Yeah!
Dreyfus: We find another way... Because that power... Is not just about keeping the lights on. It's about giving us the tools... To reconnect to the rest of the world. To find out who else is out there... So that we can start to rebuild... And reclaim... The world we lost.

Foster: You know the scary thing about them? They don't need power. Lights. Heat. Nothing. That's their advantage. That's what makes them strong.
Carver: Malcolm, I'm thinking one of us should stand guard tonight.
Malcolm: With what? They took our guns. If they wanted us dead, we would be dead already.
Carver: Maybe they're just taking their time. They killed off half the planet already.
Ellie: Come on.
Carver: What?
Ellie: You can't honestly blame the apes.
Carver: Who the hell else am I going to blame? It was the simian flu.
Ellie: It was a virus created by scientists in a lab. The chimps they were testing on didn't have a say in the matter.
Carver: Spare me the hippie-dippie bullshit. You're telling me you don't get sick to your stomach at the sight of them? Didn't you have a little girl?
Malcolm: Carver, that's enough.
Carver: How did she die?
Malcolm: That's enough!
Carver: Or your wife, for that matter.
Foster: Carver, you better shut up... Before I kick your ass.
Carver: Okay. I'm the asshole.

Caesar: Let them do their human work. Then they'll go.
Koba: Human work? [points to a scar] Human work! [points to another] Human work! [points to his damaged eye] HUMAN WORK!!

Blue Eyes: I'm so sorry... For everything.
Caesar: No. I... Am to blame.
Blue Eyes: But Koba betrayed you.
Caesar: I... chose to trust him... Because he is ape. I always think... Ape better than human. I see now... How much like them we are.

Malcolm: Who was that? On the video.
Caesar: A good man. Like you.

Koba: Caesar has no place here. Apes follow Koba now.
Caesar: Follow Koba to war.
Koba: APES WIN WAR! APES... TOGETHER... STRONG!! Caesar... weak.
Caesar: Koba... weaker.

Dreyfus: Are you out of your fucking mind?
Malcolm: No, I've seen things. I've seen the way they are. They want what we want, to survive. They don't want a war.
Dreyfus: They're animals! They attacked us!
Malcolm: Because they thought we attacked them. They think that he's dead, but he's not-

Caesar: Trusted Koba. Like brother!
Koba: Caesar brother to human! Koba fight for ape! Free ape!
Caesar: Kill ape. Koba fight for Koba. Koba belong in cage!

Malcolm: I know how this must sound. I don't think you have any-
Dreyfus: Do you think stopping me will matter? They're coming. Now, we made contact with a military base up north. They're already on their way! :Finney: It's true.
Malcolm: Dreyfus!
Finney: What are you doing, man?
Dreyfus: I'm saving the human race.
Malcolm: No!

Koba: Ape... Not kill... Ape.
Caesar: You are... Not ape.

Malcolm: You're not safe here. They made contact. Other people are coming. Soldiers. You have to leave now. Everyone. Caesar, if you don't go... it'll be all-out war.
Caesar: War... has already begun. Ape started war. And human... Human will not forgive. You must go... before fighting begins. I am sorry... my friend.
Malcolm: I thought we had a chance.
Caesar: I did too.
