Make That Three

Terry Rapson: This is very odd. There's a buoy here registering a thirteen-degree drop in ocean temperature.
Simon: Oh, yeah, that's right. That buoy malfunctioned the other day. I'll put a call in, see if there are any ships near George's Bank to get it.
Rapson: This buoy isn't in George's Bank. It's just off Greenland.

Little Piece Of It

Elsa: What have you got there?
Jeremy: A Gutenberg Bible. It was in the rare books room.
Elsa: You think God's gonna save you?
Jeremy: No, I don't believe in God.
Elsa: You're holding onto that Bible pretty tight.
Jeremy: I'm protecting it. This Bible is the first book ever printed. It represents the dawn of the Age of Reason. As far as I'm concerned, the written word is mankind's greatest achievement. You can laugh. But if Western civilization is finished, I'm gonna save at least one little piece of it.
