Wilson: Oh my god, what's happening out there?
Adrian: Anheuser convinced the other heads of state to launch. Mr. Anheuser. We have to stop this madness. Make sure the other bridges can see me.
Anheuser: What do you think you're doing?
Adrian: I know exactly what I'm doing. Ladies and Gentleman, this is Dr. Adrian Helmsley. Chief science adviser to the late President Wilson.
Woman: Could you please turn up the volume, Mr. Hoffman.
Adrian: I know we've all been forced to make difficult decisions to save our human civilization. But to be human means to care for each other and civilization means to work together to create a better life. If that's true, then there's nothing human and nothing civilized about what we're doing here.
Anheuser: Dr. Helmsley's passion is admirable. But I remind you that we have very limited resources and extremely limited time.
Adrian: Ask yourselves, can we really stand by and watch these people die? I read a quote two days ago. The author is probably dead by now. But he said: "The moment we stop fighting for each other, that's the moment that we lose our humanity"
Anheuser: And in order to save the human race, we have the obligation to stick to this plan which every nation on this flotilla signed up for. They're in God's hands now. Officer, you turn that off. That is an order, sailor. Turn it off!
Man: Don't you dare touch that button, young man!
Anheuser: Have you completely lost your mind? Look at the clock! We have barely 15 minutes left! Do you want to be responsible for the extinction of the human race? Can you handle that, Adrian?
Adrian: There's a young astrophysicist from India who's the reason we are all here.
Anheuser: Oh, for God's sake.
Adrian: He's the one who discovered it all. He connected all the dots, we all owe him our lives. I just learned that he was killed with his family in a Tsunami in eastern India. He was my friend. And he died in vain. Everybody out there has died in vain. If we start our future with an act of cruelty, what will you tell your children?
Wilson: If my father were here, he would open the gates.
Heads of states: The people of Russia along with...China and Japan. Agree to open the gates! The United Kingdom, Spain, France and Germany, and I believe I may also speak for the Italian Prime Minister: We vote to let these people come in.
Adrian: Captain Michaels. Please.
Captain: This is your Captain. In a few moments, we will open the gates.
