Dr. Ned Jackson
- In all the kingdom of the living, there is no more deadly or voracious creature than the praying mantis.
- I'm convinced that we're dealing with a Mantis in whose geological world the smallest insects were as large as man, and now failing to find those insects as food, well... it's doing the best that it can.
- The female is larger than the male and invariably destroys her mate when he's fulfilled his function in life.
Col. Joe Parkman
- Maybe there's an ordinary explanation to what happened, but I wouldn't take any bets.
- Narrator: [a volcano near Antarctic erupts, causing an ice flow in the Arctic, which releases the Deadly Mantis] For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
- Dr. Ned Jackson: It looks like you don't have too many women up here, Colonel.
- Col. Joe Parkman: Well, we have a little joke up here. The boys say there's a girl behind every tree. Only try and find a tree.
