That is so, so heavy I can't tell you how heavy it is.' * 'I'm about to fall off the cliff I'm so happy!' * 'Wobbly wobbly wobbly goes the screen, wah, wah, wah.' * 'Doin' the dino-wiggle.' * 'No grass! It hadn't been invented then.' * 'No ducks? They hadn't been invented then.' * Adam Hart-Davis, about a clearly dead Hypsilophodon skeleton: 'Sleeping or dying?' * 'This Neovenator site is dinosaur soup.' * 'Oh, blimey, it's more like kid's telly every minute.'moreless
