I'm a big Primeval fan and I've just got a LJ account so naturally the first thing that I do is join primeval_fanfic, primeval_itv and primeval_denial.  I've decided to honour this occasion by posting some Primeval quotes from the series (I, sadly, don't have the time to go through all my fav fanfics for quotes.  Maybe another time.).  So here they are:

Series One

Episode One

[Home Office scientists attempt to swab Rex's mouth for DNA]
Abby: You really shouldn't handle a lizard like that.
Lester: Let the experts do their jobs.
Abby: They don't know what they're doing.  You really shouldn't mess with an angry lizard.
Lester: I'm terrified.
Abby: Do they even know he can fly?
Lester: ...fly?

Lester: You spend your entire career planning for just about every crisis imaginable - up to and including alien invasion - then this happens.  So much for thinking outside the bloody box.

Episode Two

Stephen: How many venomous monsters can there be in the underground?
Claudia: You should see the last tube home on a Friday night.

Episode Three

Lester: [about Connor]  We may stand on the brink of Armageddon, but at least we have an irritating student on our side.  How reassuring.

Claudia: We haven't clarified the exact picture yet, but it looks like a plumber was attacked in some woman's cellar.
Lester: I'm not surprised.  Have you seen how much these people charge?

Episode Four

[Stephen kicks a football directly into a "No Playing Footbal" sign]
Connor: Fluke.
Stephen: Jealous

Episode Five

Connor: Rex!  I swear, when I catch you, you're gonna be the first animal to become extinct twice!

Ryan: [Stephen touches the Pteranodon dung and licks it as the other soldiers cringe]  That's just not right.

Episode Six

Ryan: [on the Future Predator]  I thought we only killed these creatures as a last resort.
Nick: This one is too dangerous, and if we kill it, it can't effect the past or the present.
Ryan: Shoot to kill - that makes a refreashing change.  I was beginning to feel like a social worker.

Nick: The threat is too serious too be ignored.
Claudia: Serious enough to warrant a permanent intrusion into the past?
Nick: With the correct restrictions, yes.
Lester: [sighs]  I suppose just bombing somewhere is out of the question.

Series Two

Episode One

Nick: [on a Velociraptor]  It's beautiful.  [The Raptor destroys a security camera]  I said it was beautiful, I didn't say it was friendly.

Nick: [inspecting a Velociraptor knocked unconsious with a tranquilizer gun]  Look at her.  She's a perfect killing machine.  You know in a fair fight, mammals wouldn't stand a chance.
Stephen: Well, speaking as a mammal, I'm all in favour of cheating.

Episode Six

Lester: [as Abby feeds a captured Columbian mammoth fruit from outside its enclosure]  Don't get attached; you can't keep him.
Abby: Did you know that a Columbian mammoth's trunk is five times more dexterous than an elephant's?
Lester: Why is everyone telling me fects about mammoths today?  Do I look like I'm interested?  Still, his tusks might be worth a bit.
Abby: [disgusted]  You wouldn't.
[Mammoth sneezes in Lester's direction]
Lester: Ugh.  Have a chat with him about personal hygiene, would you?

Leek: [Appearing on the A.D.D's monitors]  You're on your own, James.  There's no one there but you.
Lester: Leek?  What the hell are you doing?
Leek: Now, I want you to feel what it's like to be on the wrong end of your grand disdain.  The little man looking up at the big boss.
Lester: Security!  I want security in here now!
Leek: They've all gone, James.  Either off on Cutter's wild goose chase, or dead.  Now...
[A Future Predator controlled via neural implant appears before Lester]
Leek:I'm going to hunt you.
Lester: Leek, you're never going to make me beg for my life, so let's just end it now.
Leek: Alright, if you insist.
[The Future Predator snarls]
Leek: Goodbye, James.
Lester: One more thing.
Leek: Yes?
Lester: You really are a tiresome little man.
[The Future Predator lunges at Lester from the ceiling, and is promptly impaled on the tusk of the mammoth released by Lester moments earlier]
Lester: Good boy.  Good mammoth.

[Mammoth trumpets in its enclosure]
Lester: You know, my kids are really pestering me for a pet.  [shrugs]  If you can't find a home for him...

Little intro and some quotes.

This is my very first blog so you'll have to bare with me as I try and work out just what on Earth I'm doing.  At the moment this has become a breeding ground for some of my favourite quotes and for fanfiction stories that I've read.  Coments and suggestions are always welcome, though I might not have the time to answer even if I manage to work out how to.
I'll start with some quotes.  (None of the quotes belong to me, I found them on various sites and decided to keep them)
Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.
I love deadlines.  I especially love the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid, than to open it and remove all doubt.
Everybody wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to die.
Always remember you're unique...just like everybody else.
Chaos.  Panic.  Disorder.  My work here is done.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.
I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my great grandfather...Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car...
Never take life seriously.  No one gets out alive, anyway.
My mind works like lightning...one brilliant flash and it's gone.
When it comes to thought, some people stop at nothing.
To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first, and call whatever you hit the target.
We live in an age where pizza gets to your house before the police.
Eat right, exercise, die anyway.
Why be difficult, when with just a little bit of effort, you can be impossible?
Hard work pays off in the future.  Laziness pays off now.
When life gives you lemons, make grape juice, then sit back and let the work wonder how you did it.
I'm not a complete idiot.  Some parts are missing.
If you can keep your head while other people are losing theirs, you probably don't fully understand the situation.
They say the truth will set you free.  Then why is it everytime I tell the truth, I get sent to my room?
Sarcasm is one more service we offer.
Insanity is a perfectly rational adjustment to an insane world.
I used to have superpowers, but then my therapist took them away.
Logic is a systematic method of coming to the wrong conclusion with confidence.
Stupidity killed the cat.  Curiosity was framed.
When you're right, no one remembers.  When you're wrong, no one forgets.
Everyone makes mistakes.  The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.
They say that hard work never hurts anybody, but why take the chance.
It doesn't matter what temperature the room is.  It's always room-temperature.
Duct tape is like the Force.  It has a Light Side, a Dark Side, and it holds the Universe together.
If I could get a firm grip on reality, I'd choke it.
Knowledge is realising that the street is one-way, wisdom is looking both directions anyway.
Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poke me in the ribs and cackle, telling me, "You're next."  They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.
The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites.'
The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore.  We don't just borrow words; on occasion English has pursued other languages down alleyways ot beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.
Never be afraid to try something new.  Remember, amateurs built the ark.  Professionals built the Titanic.
