Jake: Me and Norm are here to drive these remotely controlled bodies called Avatars.And they're grown from human DNA mixed with the DNA of the natives.
Doctor: Hey, welcome. Welcome to Pandora, good to have you.
Jake: Damn, they got big.
Norm: Yeah. They fully mature on the flight out. So the progress up the stim seem to work really well.
Doctor: Yeah, they got great muscle tone. It'll take us a few hours to get them prepared, but you can take them out tomorrow. There's yours.
Norm: Doctor, Norm Spellman.
Doctor: Pleasure to meet you.
Jake: Looks like him.
Norm: Looks like you. This is your Avatar now, Jake.
Jake: The concept is that every driver is matched to his own Avatar. So that their nervous system are in tune. Or something...Which is why they offered me the gig, because I can link with Tommy's Avatar., which is insanely expensive. Is this right? I just say whatever to the video log? Norm: Yeah, we gotta get the habit of documenting everything. What we see, what we feel, it's all part of the science.
Doctor: And good science is good observation.
Norm: Plus it'll help keep you sane for the next 6 years.
Jake: Whatever. So uh,...Here I am. Doing science.
Doctor: They're coming out.
Woman on broadcast: Attention, drivers coming out of the lane.
Grace: Oh God.
Assistant: Where's the lab coat? Where's her lab coat?
Grace: Who's got my goddamn cigarette!? Guys, what's wrong with this picture? Thank you!
Norm: Grace Augustine is a legend. She's the head of the Avatar program. She wrote the book. I mean literally wrote the book on Pandoran botany.
Doctor: That's because she likes plants better than people.
Norm: Here she is, Cinderella back from the ball. Grace I'd like you to meet Norm Spellman and Jake Sully.
Grace: Norm, I hear good things about you. How's your Na'vi?
Norm: May the Great Mother rejoice our meeting.
Grace: Not bad. You still sound a bit too formal though.
Norm: I've studied for 5 years, but I still have much to learn.
Doctor: Grace, this is Jake Sully.
Grace: Yeah yeah, I know who you are and I don't need you. I need your brother. You know, the PHD who trained for three years for this mission...
Jake: He's dead. I know it's a big inconvenience for everyone.
Grace: How much lab training have you had?
Jake: I dissected a frog once.
Grace: You see? They're just pissing on us with out even a courtesy of calling it rain. I'm going to Selfridge.
Doctor: No Grace!
Grace: No man, this is such bullshit! I'm gonna kick his corporate butt. He has no business sticking his nose in my department.
Doctor: Here tomorrow, 08:00. Try and use big words.
Woman: Scorpion 2 Hotel, Hell's Gate Tower. You are cleared for South departure...
Parker: Did you see that? No you didn't, you were looking at the monitor. I love this putter Ronnie.
Grace: Parker...I used to think it was benign neglect, but now I see that you're intentionally screwing me.
Parker: Grace, I enjoy our little talks...
Grace: I need a researcher, not some jar-head drop out.
Parker: Well, actually, I thought we got lucky with him.
Grace: How is this in any way 'lucky'?
Parker: Lucky your guy had a twin brother. And lucky that brother wasn't some oral hygienist or something. A Marine we could use. I'm assigning him to your team as security escort.
Grace: The last thing I need is another trigger-happy moron out there.
Parker: Look, you're supposed to be winning the hearts and the minds of the natives, isn't that the whole point of your little puppet show? You look like them, you talk like them and they'll start trusting us. We build them a school, we teach them English...But after how many years relations with the indigenous are only getting worse.
Grace: That tends to happen when you use machine guns on them.
Parker: Right, come here. This is why we're here, Unobtanium. Because this little gray rock sells for 20 million a kilo. That's the only reason. It's what pays for the whole party. It's what pays for your science. ¿Comprendo? Now, those savages are threatening our whole operation. We're on the brink of war and you're supposed to be finding a diplomatic solution. So use what you've got and get me some results.
