Quotes from

Dr. Ted Rampion: Suppose the Macedo trench splits open under the ocean? A crack a thousand miles long, bringing superheated magma in contact with the ocean... Earthquakes, tidal waves, mass destruction on an apocalyptic scale!


[Rampion is revived after being pulled unconscious from a volcanic vent]
Simpson: How do you feel?
Dr. Ted Rampion: Medium rare.


Sir Charles Eggerston: The question now is not who is to blame, but how we can stop the catastrophe.
Dr. Ted Rampion: At present we don't know any way we can stop it. First, we have to learn to understand the natural forces involved, and if possible, find some way to control them in the time that is permitted to us.
