Walter: Look. I oversee that facility, but I'm just a middle rung on a very tall ladder here. This is private company with safety regulations. Nobody walks right in without approval for a site visit.
Colonel: Mr. Humboldt, does anyone here on this ladder know the first thing about Ebola?
Walter: It is a virus found in monkeys in Africa. People shouldn't eat monkey meat.
Jaax: You were right. Every sememster you'd start class with one phrase: The monster will return. Here it is on our doorstep.
Jaax: I don't like the feel of this place. The whole building. It's rotten.
Wade: Because something lives here that isn't monkeys or people.
If this thing is still out there somewhere, then we're going to find it.Wade

Ormond: No. I'm ready.
Jaax: You aren't a little scared?

Ben: Don't you want to wait until Nancy finishes up her tests?
Jahrling: You're talking a million to one odds. Look, man, I wouldn't put too much stock in Nancy's paranoia. Look, she's smart as a whip, but her mentor, he's like a pathogen chasing whack job. This guy went off the deep end. Always looking for the big one. I mean, it's not her fault.
Going into Level 4 is like being born. You're stripped down to your bare essence and you emerge into a strange and hostile environment.Jaax
