Lois King: If I'd only known in time, perhaps I could have stopped him. I know he meant this power to be used to help humanity, not destroy it.
Dr. Ted Stevens: I'm sure he did. And he paid for his mistake. Nature has many secrets that man must'n't disturb. And this was one of them.
Lois King: I know. If only he too could have understood.
Dr. Ted Stevens: I'm sure he does, Lois. That's why he took his secret with him.
Prof. King: You know, science is a devouring mistress. She devours all who seek to fathom her mysteries. And for every secret she reveals, she demands a price; a price that a scientist must be prepared to pay. Even at the cost of his life or the lives of others who stand in the way of his search.
William S. 'Bill' Grant: Don't touch that.
[Grant shows his credentials]
Ted Baxter: William S. Grant, Special Investigator. Department of Defense, Washington. Well, I guess that makes it pretty official.
William S. 'Bill' Grant: Yes, I guess it does.
Ted Baxter: His body's rigid with burns. The boat's charred too. Yet, there's no sign of fire. We better get him out of the water.
William S. 'Bill' Grant: I'll take care of him myself.
Ted Baxter: I just though I'd give you some help.
Prof. King: These men get very careless. They think they rule the sea, but it's just the opposite. The sea rules *us*, Mr. Baxter.
Wanda: You don't look well, George. Or is it just that I don't find you attractive anymore?
