    Eat The Tourists

    John Hammond: All major theme parks have delays. When they opened Disneyland in 1956, nothing worked!

    Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but John, if The Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don't eat the tourists.

        They Remember

        Dr. Alan Grant: (asking about the raptors) What kind of metabolism do they have? What's their growth rate?

        Muldoon: They're lethal at eight months, and I do mean lethal. I've hunted most things that can hunt you, but the way these things move...

        Dr. Alan Grant: Fast for a biped?

        Muldoon: Cheetah speed. Fifty, sixty miles an hour if they ever got out into the open, and they're astonishing jumpers...

        John Hammond: Yes, yes, yes. That's why we're taking extreme precautions.

        Dr. Alan Grant: Do they show intelligence? With their brain cavity...

        Muldoon: They show extreme intelligence, even problem-solving intelligence. Especially the big one. We bred eight originally, but when she came in she took over the pride and killed all but two of the others. That one... when she looks at you, you can see she's working things out. That's why we have to feed them like this. She had them all attacking the fences when the feeders came.

        Dr. Ellie Sattler: But the fences are electrified though, right?

        Muldoon: That's right, but they never attack the same place twice. They were testing the fences for weaknesses, systematically. They remember.

          Finds A Way

          Dr. Ian Malcolm: But again, how do you know they're all female? Does somebody go out into the park and pull up the dinosaurs' skirts?

          Henry Wu: We control their chromosomes. It's really not that difficult. All vertebrate embryos are inherently female anyway, they just require an extra hormone given at the right developmental stage to make them male. We simply deny them that.

          Dr. Ellie Sattler: Deny them that?

          Dr. Ian Malcolm: John, the kind of control you're attempting simply is... it's not possible. If there is one thing the history of evolution has taught us it's that life will not be contained. Life breaks free, it expands to new territories and crashes through barriers, painfully, maybe even dangerously, but, uh... well, there it is.

          John Hammond: There it is.

          Henry Wu: You're implying that a group composed entirely of female animals will... breed?

          Dr. Ian Malcolm: No. I'm, I'm simply saying that life, uh... finds a way.
