Movie Quote of the Week – 4/21/17

Answer to MWL 4/19/17: Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) – Jurassic Park

Ian Malcolm: Don’t you see the danger, uh, John, inherent, in what you’re doing here? Genetic power is the most awesome force the planet has ever seen but you wield it like a kid that’s found his dad’s gun.
Donald Gennaro: It’s hardly appropriate to start hurling generalizations —
Ian: If I may? Um, I’ll tell you the problem with the scientific power that you’re using here: it didn’t require any discipline to obtain it. You know, you read what others had done and you took the next step. You didn’t earn the knowledge for yourselves, so you don’t take any responsibility for it. You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could and before you even knew what you had, you patented it and packaged it and slapped it on a plastic lunch box and now you’re selling it. You want to sell it!
John Hammond: I don’t think you’re giving us our due credit. Our scientists have done things which nobody has ever been done before.
Ian: Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should.
