  • Let me assume you, for want of your own understanding, that man's boasting pride in his alleged advancement is based on one hollow precept that is his ego.
  • The world's gone completely mad. Sometimes I think I'm the only rational being left in it... one person telling a fairy tale and the other one believing it.

  • State Police Chief: [after shooting at the monster] Winged him! It's a big country but too small for that bird!
  • Dr. Ross Harkness: He tampered with things beyond his province... beyond what any man should do... and if it was madness, well... those whom the gods would destroy... they first make mad!
