David Sumner: They'll beat him to death.
Amy Sumner: I don't care! Get him out!
David Sumner: You really don't care, do you?
Amy Sumner: No, I don't.

Reverend Barney Hood: Radiation. That's an unfortunate dispensation.
David Sumner: Surely is. Yes, indeed.
Reverend Barney Hood: As long as it's not another bomb. [beat] You're a scientist - can you deny the responsibility?
David Sumner: Can you? [beat] After all, there's never been a kingdom given to so much bloodshed as that of Christ.
Reverend Barney Hood: [beat] That's Montesquieu, isn't it?

Reverend Barney Hood: Somebody well worth reading.
Tom Hedden: John Niles; come to me then.
John Niles: Is this for a drink then, Tom?
Tom Hedden: This is for the truth. Your brother; been hangin' around the girls again. You'd better keep a closer watch or we'll be puttin' him away!
Tom Hedden: I'll have an answer, or I'll have blood!
Riddaway: I didn't reckon on nobody getting killed, Norman.
Norman Scutt: Yeah, well, that's too bad. We're all in it now. Accessories, we are.

David Sumner: Jesus. I got 'em all!
David Sumner: Ok, you've had your fun. I'll give you one more chance, and if you don't clear out now, there'll be real trouble. I mean it.
Henry Niles: I don't know my way home.
David Sumner: That's okay. I don't either.
