    • [from teaser trailer]
    • Madison Russell: Hello? Is anyone there? I'm trying to reach... I'm tryin' to reach MONARCH.
    • Dr. Emma Russell: The mass extinction we feared has already begun. And we are the cause. We are the infection. But like all living organisms, the earth unleashed a fever to fight this infection. Its original and rightful rulers, the Titans. They are part of the earth's natural defense system. A way to protect the planet, to main its balance. But if governments are allowed to contain them, destroy them, or use them for war, the human infection will only continue to spread. And with our lifetime, our planet will perish, and so will we. Unless we restore balance.
    • Dr. Emma Russell: Our world is changing. The mass extinction we feared... Has already begun. And we are the cause. We are the infection.
    • [pause]
    • Dr. Emma Russell: But like all living organisms, the earth unleashed a fever to fight this infection: Its original... and rightful rulers, the Titans. For thousands of years, these creatures have remained in hiding around the world. And unless all the Titans are found, our planet will perish, and so will we. They are the only guarantee that life will carry on.
    • Mark Russell: You are out of your goddamn mind! First, you put our daughter's life in danger and now you get to decide the fate of the world. That's rich, Emma!
    • Dr. Emma Russell: I couldn't be more sane, and Madison couldn't be stronger. After we lost Andrew, I trained her to survive. And at least now, she will have a fighting chance.
    • Mark Russell: A fighting chance? Why don't you listen to yourself? It's not all math, Emma. Some things, you can't control.
    • Dr. Emma Russell: And there are some things you can't run from.
    • Mark Russell: This won't bring him back to us.
    • [more Titans are being released from other Monarch outposts]
    • Alan Jonah: I thought we were going to release them gradually. One at a time.
    • Dr. Emma Russell: I'm not doing this.
    • Alan Jonah: Long live the king.
    • Madison Russell: You're a monster.
    • [last words]
    • Dr. Emma Russell: Long live... the king.
    • Sam Coleman: What we are witnessing here, Senators - is the return of an ancient and forgotten superspecies. Godzilla. The MUTOs. Kong. We believe that these - Titans, and others like them, provide an essential balance to our world. And while some may pose a threat, Monarch! - is uniquely prepared to determine which of these Titans are here to threaten us, and which of these Titans are here to pro-tect us.
    • Senator Williams: Thank you for the fifth grade history lesson, Mr. Coleman.
    • [long pause]
    • Sam Coleman: Which of these Titans are here to protect us?...
    • [pause]
    • Sam Coleman: And which of these Titans are here to threaten us?
    • Dr. Vivienne Graham: A sort of symbiotic relationship, if you will. The lion and the mouse.
    • Senator Williams: Or the scorpion and the frog. So you'd want to make Godzilla our pet.
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: No. We will be his.
    • [general laughter]
    • [to Mark Russell]
    • Dr. Vivienne Graham: They're everywhere. Battling for dominance. Arrival alpha to Godzilla.
    • [Godzilla is flashing his light]
    • Master Sergeant Hendricks: Hey, what's with the light show?
    • Dr. Vivienne Graham: It's an intimidation display. Like a gorilla pounding its chest.
    • [nervously]
    • Sam Coleman: Consider us very intimidated.
    • [nervously]
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: Consider us *very* intimidated.
    • Jonah Alan: We opened Pandora's box. And there's no closing it now.
    • Chief Warrant Officer Barnes: Sometimes I think this is Godzilla's world. We just live in it.
    • Colonel Diane Foster: Damn right.
    • Colonel Diane Foster: Damn right.
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: And what's gonna be left, if you do this? A dead charred world, overrun by monsters?
    • Dr. Emma Russell: No, Doctor Stanton, the exact opposite. Just like a how forest fire replenishes the soil or how a volcano creates new land, we have seen signs that these creatures will do the same. San Francisco, Las Vegas, wherever the Titans go, life follows, triggered by their radiation. They are the only thing that can reverse the destruction that we started. They are the only guarantee that life will carry on. But for that to happen, we must set them free.
    • [pause]
    • Dr. Emma Russell: Unless we set Godzilla free.
    • Mark Russell: Jesus! How many of these things are there?
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: Seventeen. And counting, after Gojira.
    • Mark Russell: Seventeen!
    • Dr. Vivienne Graham: Most of them were discovered in deep hibernation. While others we've - contained at top-secret sites around the world. Cambodia and Mexico, Skull Island. We even found one in Wyoming. They're everywhere.
    • [about Godzilla]
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: Jesus. Good thing he's on our side.
    • [to Mark]
    • Dr. Emma Russell: I'm sorry. Run.
    • [detonates the ice freeing Ghidorah]
    • [last lines]
    • [referring to Ghidorah's severed head]
    • Alan Jonah: We'll take it.
    • [first lines]
    • [SAN FRANCISCO 2014; calling out for his son]
    • Mark Russell: An-drew! An-drew! An-drew! An-drewww!
    • [Carrying the 'titan's sound device, intrepidly traversing rickety platform bridge, facing at end humungously large larval stage]
    • Dr. Emma Russell: "Ok."
    • [to Godzilla]
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: Goodbye, old friend.
    • Dr. Emma Russell: Leave her out of this.
    • Alan Jonah: Why? You're the one who pulled her into it. Madison, tell me, what exactly did Mommy sell you on? Some grand utopia? Man and monster, living together in blissful harmony?
    • Chief Warrant Officer Barnes: Quick Martinez, I need a bigger bazooka!
    • Staff Sergeant Martinez: But sir, we already hit them with everything we've got.
    • Chief Warrant Officer Barnes: Cut the the sass soldier, we're marines and we never give up, hoorah!
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: I can measure the distance between sub-aquatic splinter pulses ten miles apart without using a harmonic density amplifier, but I apparently can't detect a woman's heartbeat.
    • [about opening the Argo shields for Godzilla]
    • Mark Russell: Let him know we're not a threat. Oh, yeah sure. Let's bring him in for a beer. You out of your mind?
    • [Sarcastically]
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: Oh, yeah sure. Let's bring him in for a beer.
    • [Serious tone]
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: You out of your mind?
    • [sees King Ghidorah]
    • Chief Warrant Officer Barnes: You gotta be fuckin' kiddin'.
    • [as they enter Washington, D.C]
    • Sam Coleman: Jesus. It's like the whole sky's alive.
    • Colonel Diane Foster: That's because it is.
    • [to Dr. Emma Russell]
    • Alan Jonah: Listen. While you were sitting comfortably in some laboratory, we've been fighting, for decades in one *dirty* war after another. I've seen human nature firsthand, and I'm here to *tell* you that it doesn't get any better. It just gets worse. So I'm sorry that Monster Zero isn't *exactly* what we were expecting. But we opened Pandora's box, and there's no closing it now.
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: Killing them would be a mistake. They'll return because of us. It was our atomic testing that awoke Gojira. Other creatures like the MUTOs. From strip-mining and seismic surveys. But these are not MONSTERS! They are animals, rising to reclaim a world that was once theirs!
    • Senator Williams: It almost sounds like you're protecting them, Dr. Seirazawa. As if you admire them.
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: I admire all forms of life. Except us. If we hope to survive, we must find ways to coexist WITH TITANS. With - Gojira.
    • Dr. Vivienne Graham: Mark, we know you're hurting. But if we find the ORCA we'll find your family. I promise.
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: Killing them would be a mistake. They returned because of us. It was our atomic testing that awoke Gojira. Other creatures like the MUTOs. From strip-mining and seismic surveys. But these are not MONSTERS! They are animals, rising to reclaim a world that was once theirs!
    • Senator Williams: It almost sounds like you're protecting them, Dr. Serizawa. As if you admire them.
    • [grimly]
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: I admire all forms of life.
    • [standing:]
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: Senators. If we hope to survive, we must find ways to coexist WITH TITANS. With - Gojira.
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: Hold your fire. We don't know if he will attack!
    • Mark Russell: Well he will if you keep those guns on him. Now I want him dead more that anybody, but unless this is a fight that you know that you can win for God's sakes stand down.
    • Dr. Emma Russell: Containment team stand down, I repeat stand down! You are scaring her!
    • [last lines]
    • [after Godzilla blasts one of King Ghidorah's heads with its atomic breath]
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: Jesus! Good thing he's on our side.
    • Dr. Ilene Chen: For now.
    • Madison Russell: Look!
    • [the remaining Titans, including Rodan, arrive to bow to Godzilla, who roars in triumph]
    • Mark Russell: Listen to me: They'll *think* it's one o' them. You use the wrong *frequency* on one of 'em - And you're gonna be responsible for a thousand San Franciscos!
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: Sometimes... the only way to heal our wounds is to make peace with the demons who created them.
    • Madison Russell: I made us breakfast... It's, uh, eggs, toast and what was once bacon.
    • Dr. Emma Russell: And which do you recommend?
    • [laughing]
    • Madison Russell: The toast and eggs.
    • Dr. Emma Russell: Thank you.
    • [almost whispering]
    • Mark Russell: Open the shields.
    • [loudly]
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: Oh yeah, sure, let's bring him in for a beer! You outta your goddamn mind?
    • [almost whispering]
    • Mark Russell: Let him know we're not a threat. Open the shields.
    • [pause]
    • [to Stanton]
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: Do it.
    • Dr. Emma Russell: Just like how a forest fire replenishes the soil or how a volcano creates new land, we have seen signs that these creatures will do the same. San Francisco, Las Vegas, wherever the Titans go, life follows, triggered by their radiation.
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: There are some things beyond our understanding, Mark. We must accept them and *learn* from them. Because these moments of crisis are also potential moments of faith. A time - when we either come together or fall apart. Nature always has a way of balancing itself. The only question is... What part - will we play.
    • Mark Russell: Did you just make that up?
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: No. I read it in a fortune cookie once.
    • [beat]
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: A really long fortune cookie.
    • Dr. Vivienne Graham: As you know, at approximately oh seven hundred hours, our containment site, in China's Yunnan rainforest was raided. The specimen, code name Mothra, escaped, only to cocoon itself later under a nearby waterfall. While Dr. Emma Russell, and her daughter Madison were taken hostage. This - is the man responsible. Alan Jonah. A former British Army colonel turned eco-terrorist, obsessed with restoring the natural order. And to fund his operations he began trafficking in a new and dangerous market: Titan DNA.
    • Dr. Vivienne Graham: If Jonah is looking to extract genetic samples they'll be here - in the bio labs.
    • [hops into the Osprey]
    • Mark Russell: Let's move!
    • Colonel Diane Foster: We'll do an emergency vertical takeoff at max rpm! Number two's still speeding up!
    • Dr. Ilene Chen: You are murdering the world.
    • Dr. Emma Russell: No.
    • Colonel Diane Foster: Everyone strap in. All ships - Follow our lead.
    • Colonel Diane Foster: Everyone strap in. All shifts - Follow our lead.
    • Colonel Diane Foster: Is there another creature that might stand a chance against him?
    • [thoughtfully]
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: No. Ghidorah and Gojira's rivalry was ancient and unique.
    • Staff Sergeant Martinez: Right, so we killed - our best shot - at beating this thing?
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: Godzilla's radiation is reaching critical mass! Six minutes until he blows!
    • [about Mark]
    • Chief Warrant Officer Barnes: Dude hates Titans.
    • Sam Coleman: Yeah, well, you would too if you were him.
    • Dr. Vivienne Graham: The specimen at the site has been kept entirely off-book. And since it's a more recent discovery our data is limited. But it seems to be another apex predator.
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: Emma called it - Monster Zero.
    • Dr. Vivienne Graham: It may have been a rival alpha to Godzilla, battling for dominance over the other Titans.
    • Mark Russell: How's that?
    • Dr. Ilene Chen: Myth is our compass. It's something my mom used to say. She believed our stories about monsters and dragons, could help us find the Titans, and restore our connection to nature.
    • Mark Russell: Wait, your mother? You're second-generation Monarch?
    • Dr. Ilene Chen: Third. It runs in the family.
    • Mark Russell: That's incredible! I don't suppose your family has any tips on slaying dragons, do they?
    • Dr. Ilene Chen: Slaying dragons is a Western concept. In the East, they are sacred. Divine creatures who brought wisdom, strength. Even redemption.
    • Admiral William Stenz: Their behavior has become - random. Erratic. And with - our forces spread desperately thin and these things roaming the globe unimpeded, we are running out of options. And time. Excuse me, do you have something to add.
    • Dr. Ilene Chen: Yeah. You're wrong. Their behavior is *not* random. *Or* erratic.
    • [angrily]
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: This is a dangerous path! You are meddling with forces beyond our comprehension, gambling with the lives of BILLIONS!
    • [on Madison]
    • Chief Warrant Officer Barnes: I can't blame that kid! If I had these two for parents, I'd run away from home too.
    • Chief Warrant Officer Barnes: Mayday, mayday! This is Raptor One to Argo. Argo, do you copy?
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: Hope you got a big wrench.
    • Colonel Diane Foster: Copy, Raptor One. What's your status?
    • Chief Warrant Officer Barnes: We're screwed, that's what. And we got kids on board. We're gonna need immediate mid-air retrieval.
    • Chief Warrant Officer Barnes: Lock on their position, and prepare the hangar for an emergency landing.
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: Hangar doors are unresponsive.
    • Colonel Diane Foster: Manual override?
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: They're stuck!
    • [gets out of his seat]
    • Mark Russell: All right, which way to the hangar?
    • Sam Coleman: I can show you. Anybody else? I know the way. Come on.
    • Executive Officer Bowman: Can't fix our position. GPS is down. But inertial says we're 600 miles from departure.
    • Commander Crane: That can't be.
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: I knew it, man! The vortex was a tunnel into the Hollow Earth. It's a subterranean tunnel system that connect the entire planet. It doesn't matter. I knew I was right. I told you, Chen!
    • Dr. Ilene Chen: Shut up, Rick.
    • Colonel Diane Foster: The oxygen destroyer, why wasn't Monster Zero affected?
    • Mark Russell: What, you mean an alien?
    • Dr. Ilene Chen: Yes. He's not part of our natural order. And he's not mean to be here.
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: A false king.
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: An invasive species. That could explain how he's creating these massive storms and the effect he's having on the other Titans. It's almost he's reshaping the planet to his own liking.
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: These legends, what did they call him?
    • Dr. Ilene Chen: Ghidorah. "The one who is many."
    • Chief Warrant Officer Barnes: I mean, I'm no scientist, but I think it has something to do with his goddamn head growing back.
    • Dr. Rick Stanton: Well, I've never seen anything like it. It violates everything we know about the natural order.
    • Dr. Ilene Chen: Unless he's not part of the natural order.
    • Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: What do you mean?
    • [shows a cave painting of Godzilla and Monster Zero]
    • Dr. Ilene Chen: I was able to piece this together.
    • Sam Coleman: Well, he looks vaguely familiar.
    • Dr. Ilene Chen: It tells of a great dragon who fell from the stars. A Hydra whose storm swallowed both men and gods alike.
