Few stars could boast a track record of turning in solid performances ranging from understated intensity to completely unhinged with such consistency as actor Sam Neill. Beginning with his work as a member of the New Zealand National Film Unit, Neill began to make a name for himself in his homeland with small films like "Sleeping Dogs" (1977). After moving to Australia for various film and television work, he received international exposure with the third entry in the popular "Omen" horror series as Damian Thorn in "The Final Conflict" (1981). From there it was on to a nearly uninterrupted run of impressive performances alongside some of film's biggest stars in projects such as the underrated "Dead Calm" (1989), co-starring Nicole Kidman, and the Academy Award-winning "The Piano" (1993), featuring Harvey Keitel and Holly Hunter. Neill then headlined one of the biggest blockbuster films of all time as the levelheaded Dr. Alan Grant in Steven Spielberg's "Jurassic Park" (1993). Almost effortlessly, he would continue to move from genres ranging from horror (1995's "In the Mouth of Madness"), to comedy (2000's "The Dish"), to historical drama (the 2007 season of Showtime's "The Tudors"), and back again with apparent ease. Over the years, the once supposedly camera shy Neill had steadily become one of the most welcome international presences on screen - be it film or television - of his generation.

John Hammond says: So have I.

Dr. Alan Grant says: Big Tim, the human piece of toast.

Alan Grant says: I have a theory that there are two kinds of boys. There are those that want to be astronomers, and those that want to be astronauts. The astronomer, or the paleontologist, gets to study these amazing things from a place of complete safety.

Paul Kirby says: But then you never get to go into space

Alan Grant says: Exactly. That's the difference between imagining and seeing: to be able to touch them. And that's... that's all that Billy wanted. [a field of beautiful dinosaurs comes into view]

Alan Grant says: On this island there is no such thing as safe.

Eric Kirby says: read both of your books. I liked the first one more. Before you were on the island. You liked dinosaurs back then.

Alan Grant says: Back then they hadn't tried to eat me yet.

Eric Kirby says: Be careful with that. T-Rex. It scares some of the smaller ones away but attracts one really big one with the fin.

Alan Grant says: This is T-Rex pee? [Eric nods yes] How'd you get it?

Eric Kirby says: You don't wanna know.

Alan Grant says: Reverse Darwinism - survival of the most idiotic.

Alan Grant says: Oh my god.

Amanda Kirby says: What is this?

Alan Grant says: It's a bird cage.

Amanda Kirby says: For what?

Jack says: He was as popular as a snake in a sleeping bag.

John Hammond says: There is no doubt our attractions will drive kids out of their minds.

Alan Grant says: What are those?

Dr. Ellie Sattler says: Small versions of adults, honey.

Alan Grant says: Oh my God. Do you know what this is? It's a dinosaur egg. They're breeding.

Robert McLean says: I stood there looking at that horse, and I swear I felt like the same thing was happening to me. I could either fight the way things are, or I could accept them.

Alan Grant says: Ian Freeze!

Alan Grant says: Ian, freeze!

Ian Malcolm says: if you gotta go you gotta go

Ian Malcolm says: If you gotta go you gotta go.

Damien says: Nazarene, you have won... nothing...

Alan Grant says: I have never been on this island.

Paul Kirby says: Sure you have. You wrote that book.

Billy Brennan says: That was Isla Nublar, this is Isla Sorna. Site B.

Udesky says: You mean there's two islands with dinosaurs-

Paul Kirby says: Alright, could you stay out of this!

Weir says: Captain, the ship is... saved!

Weir says: Hell is just a word. The reality is much worse.

Allomere says: The western kingdoms and the tree, those are mine

Allomere says: The western kingdoms and the tree, those are mine.

Alan Grant says: Dinosaurs and man, two species separated by sixty-five million years of evolution have just been suddenly thrown back into the mix together. How can we possibly have the slightest idea what to expect?

John Hammond says: I don't believe it! You were meant to come down here and defend me against these characters, and the only one I've got on my side is the blood-sucking lawyer!

Donald Gennaro says: Thank you.

Amanda Kirby says: This is how you make dinosaurs?

Alan Grant says: No, this is how you play god.

Jack says: Search and rescue was out for two weeks, not a trace

Jack says: He went missing last summer, search and rescue was out for two weeks. Not a trace.

Jack says: Went missing last summer

Jack says: He went missing last summer.

Alan Grant says: I want to let you know I won't be sponsoring your park.

Alan Grant says: How would you classify it Billy?

Billy Brennan says: It's a super-predator: Suchomimus, the snout.

Alan Grant says: Think bigger.

Billy Brennan says: Baryonyx.

Alan Grant says: Not with that sail. (shows him a tooth) Spinosaurus aegyptiacus.

Alan Grant says: Not with that sail. [shows him a tooth] Spinosaurus aegyptiacus.

Billy Brennan says: (takes the tooth) I don' t remember that one being on InGen's list.

Billy Brennan says: [takes the tooth] I don' t remember that one being on InGen's list.

Alan Grant says: Because it wasn't. Which makes you wonder what else they were up to.

Alan Grant says: Oh my god... it's a bird cage!

Alan Grant says: We're out of the job.

Ian Malcolm says: Don't you mean extinct?

Alan Grant says: [after Malcom lights a flare to distract the T-Rex] Ian! Freeze!

Alan Grant says: Some of the worst things imaginable have been done with the best intentions.

Captain Miller says: You miss me, you blow out the hull.

Weir says: What makes you think I'll miss?

Captain Miller says: Vacate! I want off this ship!

Weir says: You can't leave. She won't let you.

Captain Miller says: You just get your gear and get back on the Lewis and Clark, Doctor, or you'll find yourself walkin' home.

Weir says: I am home.

Captain Miller says: Oh. My. God. What happened to your eyes?

Weir says: Where we're going, we won't need eyes to see.

Captain Miller says: What are you talking about?

Weir says: I created the Event Horizon to reach the stars, but she's gone much, much farther than that. She tore a hole in our universe, a gateway to another dimension. A dimension of pure chaos. Pure... evil. When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was alive! Look at her, Miller. Isn't she beautiful?

Captain Miller says: Your "beautiful" ship killed its crew, Doctor.

Weir says: Well... now she has another crew. Now she has us.

Weir says: You can't leave. She won't let you.

Alan Grant says: It's it's a dinosaur!!

Paul Kirby says: [a loud roar rocks the jungle] What was that?

Billy Brennan says: That's a Tyrannosaurus.

Alan Grant says: I don't think so. It sounds bigger.

Alan Grant says: We haven't landed yet.

Eric Kirby says: I read both of your books. I liked the first one more. Before you were on the island. You liked dinosaurs back then.

Alan Grant says: Back then they hadn't tried to eat me yet.

Alan Grant says: Dinosaurs and man, two species separated by 65 million years of evolution have just been suddenly thrown back into the mix together. How can we have the slightest idea of what to expect?

Alan Grant says: Objects in mirror are closer than they appear (Alan reading)

Alan Grant says: Objects in mirror are closer than they appear. [Alan reading]

Alan Grant says: Life finds a way.

Amanda Kirby says: This is how you make dinosaurs?

Alan Grant says: No, this is how you play God.

Weir says: Now it is time to go back.

Weir says: And now... it is time to go back.

Captain Miller says: I know, to hell

Captain Miller says: [sounding bored] I know. To hell

Weir says: You know noting. Hell is only a word. The reality is much, much worse. Let me show you!

Weir says: You know nothing. Hell is only a word. The reality is much, much worse. Let me show you!

Alan Grant says: Mr. Hammond, after careful consideration, I've decided *not* to endorse your park.

John Hammond says: Neither do I.

Frankie Dalton says: Charles Bromley: Do you like being a vampire? Frankie Dalton: Yes, sir. Charles Bromley: Why? Frankie Dalton: I'm good at this. I was never very good at being human.

Charles Bromley says: Charles Bromley: Do you like being a vampire?

Charles Bromley says: Do you like being a vampire?

Frankie Dalton says: I'm good at this. I was never very good at being human.

Alan Grant says: Mr. Hammond, after careful consideration, I've decided not to endorse your park.

Alan Grant says: This is good! Here we are on the worst place on earth, and we're not even getting paid!

Capt. Marko Ramius says: Re-verify our range to target... one ping only.

Capt. Vasily Borodin says: Captain, I - I - I just...

Capt. Marko Ramius says: Give me a ping, Vasili. One ping only, please.

Alan Grant says: Nobody move a muscle. *Dinosaur rawrs - everybody runs*

Alan Grant says: Nobody move a muscle! [T- rex roars and everyone besides Grant runs away]

Alan Grant says: Looks like we're out of a job.

Ian Malcolm says: Don't you mean extinct.

Weir says: Do you see ?!

Weir says: Do You See?!

John Trent says: (talks to a teenage boy reading a Sutter Cane book) - Like the book?

John Trent says: (frightened) Aaaaahhhhhhh!

John Trent says: Hey, kid. Did you ever hear of Hobbs's End?

Paper Boy says: What? (Rides away on his bicycle)

Sutter Cane says: Do you want to know the problem with places like this...With religion in general? It's never known how to convey the anatomy of horror. Religion seeks discipline through fear...yet doesn't understand the true nature of creation. No one's ever believed it enough to make it real. The same cannot be said of my world.

John Trent says: Your books aren't real.

Sutter Cane says: But they've sold over a billion copies. I've been translated into eighteen languages. More people believe in my work than believe in the Bible.

John Trent says: You got a point.

Sutter Cane says: I think you know it.

John Trent says: There has to be some kind of an explanation...for what I've seen tonight. I'll sort this shit out later, but right now...there has to be some kind of a simple fu**ing explanation.

John Trent says: There has to be some kind of an explanation for what I've seen tonight. I'll sort this shit out later, but right now there has to be some kind of a simple fu**ing explanation.
