    • Travis: Didn't you write a book... Dinosaurs I Have Known? Eckles: Mere fantasy. Travis: Right. You know nothing until today.

    • Host: Dinosaurs large and small fill my junkyard workroom. This one given to me by a friend 30 years ago. These given as toys to my daughters. And when they didn't play with them, I simply took them back. So with dinosaurs coming into my life, I often wondered, what would happen if I could go back into theirs. Dinosaurs, time machines. Put them together and you have a tale one million years old.

    • Eckles: Does the safari guarantee I come back alive? Agent: We guarantee nothing, except the dinosaurs.

    • Eckles: Every hunter that ever lived would envy us today. Huh. From now on, Africa will seem like Illinois. Travis: Have you ever visited Hell, Mr. Eckles? Until you visit Hell, don't make comparisons. Eckles: I'm ready. Travis: Yes.

    • Travis: That is the jungle of sixty million, two thousand, and fifty-five years before the moment you stepped into our office, Mr. Eckles. Christ isn't born yet. Moses has not gone to the mountains to talk with God. The Pyramids lie still in the Earth. Hell.
