  • Trivia

    • At exactly 33:54 (on DVD) as the camera pans down from the tree to the tent and there is a car visible as it drives by, hidden mostly by the trees (just right of the center of the shot). It seems rather strange for an uninhabited island to have traffic.

  • Quotes

    • Bridger: (about the number Krieg slipped to Lucas) Lieutenant, how old is this Candy?
      Krieg: Forty-three. (Bridger crumples phone number) But she's got a sixteen year old daughter, sir. They're lovely people.
      Bridger: Really?

    • Mack: [The U.E.O.'S] gonna make us stop.
      Bobby: This isn't illegal. It's just stupid, and unless somebody comes from the board of education, we're probably safe!

    • Crocker: (playing fetch) Go get it. Well? Go get it!
      Darwin: You get it.
      Crocker: What?
      Darwin: Get it yourself.

    • Grant: (referring to the treasures they've found) Five years, and this is it. Hell, I could've gone swimming and gotten more than that.
      Bobby: You got more than this, Grant. You just can't take it with you. But you've got proof.
      Mack: Try spending that at your local Jeep dealership.

    • Dr. Young: (about the expected lava eruption) I assure you, there won't be time to feel pain. It will wash over us like a blanket of fire. We'll be like the head of a match when it's struck.
      Bobby: Will you shut up?

    • Phillips: I'm not authorized to fire torpedoes.
      Westphalen: You're not firing torpedoes. You are firing a research tool at a volcano under the orders of the chief scientist. Fire the torpedoes!
      Phillips: All of them?
      Westphalen: I don't know.

    • Bridger: The U.E.O. is very unhappy about a science officer who was able to call up the full fire-power of the seaQuest.
      Westphalen: What was I supposed to do? We had a crisis.
      Bridger: I know, I know, but, uh, you tore up a mile and a half of the ocean floor. You fired off nine torpedoes when five would've been enough.
      Westphalen: I didn't know.
      Bridger: That's my fault. Admiral Noyce and I are still arguing. He wants to know who's going to pay for the four unauthorized torpedoes.
      Westphalen: You know what I say. Damn the torpedoes and full steam ahead.
