Arthur Curry: My father was a lighthouse keeper. My mother was a queen. But life has a way of bringing people together. They made me what I am.
Arthur Curry: My parents were from different worlds, and I was the product of a love that never should have been. A son of the land and a son of the seas.
[to baby Arthur]
Queen Atlanna: You could unite our worlds one day.
[to young Arthur]
Queen Atlanna: Legend has it that one day a new king will come, who will use the power of the trident to put Atlantis back together again.
Boy: Check it out. Arthur is talking to the fish.
[he pushes Arthur against the aquarium glass]
Young Arthur: Let me go!
Young Arthur: But I already know how to swim.
Nuidis Vulko: Not even close.
[teaching young Arthur to swim]
Nuidis Vulko: You have to forget all the teaching of the surface world. Go deeper to uncover your Atlantean instincts.
Arthur Curry: My parents made me what I am. I am the protector of the deep.
Thomas Curry: [to Arthur] Your mother always knew you were special. She believed you’d be the one to unite our two worlds.
Bar Patreon: Hey, buddy, are you that fish boy from the TV?
Arthur Curry: It’s fish man.
[as he breaks into a submarine]
Arthur Curry: Permission to come aboard.
[referring to Arthur]
Nuidis Vulko: He’s spent his entire life training, training to be the best.
Arthur Curry: [to Mera] That’s the exact spot that Vulko gave me my first swimming lesson.
[referring to Orm]
Mera: We must stop him.
Arthur Curry: And how do you propose we do that?
[referring to the trident]
Nuidis Vulko: By retrieving this.
Arthur Curry: I already got one of those.
Nuidis Vulko: Not like this one you don’t.
Mera: I’ve been looking for you. Your half-brother, King Orm, is about to declare war upon the surface world. The only way to stop his war is for you to take your rightful place as king.
Arthur Curry: Trust me, I am no king.
Mera: [to Arthur] You are a part of something deeper. You are the bridge between land and sea. Take your rightful place as king.
Arthur Curry: That was the worst pep talk, ever.
Mera: [to Arthur] You might want to strap in.
Mera: We’re here!
Arthur Curry: What are you doing?!
[she jumps out of the plane]
Pilot: She didn’t have a parachute!
Arthur Curry: Redheads, you got to love them.
[Arthur follows suit and jumps out of the plane]
[walking through the desert]
Mera: We’re getting close now.
Arthur Curry: Oh, yeah? Close to what, dying of thirst? There’s no way Atlantis is this far inland.
Arthur Curry: Check this place out. This is bad-ass!
Mera: It’s real.
[referring to the Atlantean device they’re trying to activate]
Arthur Curry: Of course it’s not working. It’s been sitting here collecting dust since before the Sahara was a desert.
Mera: Before the Sahara was a desert. You do your best thinking when you’re not thinking at all. Right, now hold still.
Arthur Curry: Hey, what are you doing?
[she places her hand in front of his face]
Mera: We need water. You’re the closes source.
[she uses her powers to extract water droplet from Arthur and adds it to the device to open it]
Arthur Curry: Show off. I could’ve just peed on it.
[the device brings up a message from one of the kings of Atlantis]
King Atlan: In this trident resides the power of Atlantis. If you seek my power, journey beyond the edge of the world to the hidden sea. In the wrong hands, it would bring destruction. But in hands of the true heir, it would unite all our kingdoms above and below.
[Mera takes the device and smashes it]
Arthur Curry: Hey, wait!
Arthur Curry: Shouldn’t we have written it down first?
Mera: I memorized it, didn’t you?
Arthur Curry: Oh, yeah, totally.
Mera: What did he just say?
Arthur Curry: Something, something trident.
[after they’ve gotten away from Black Mantis]
Arthur Curry: That was awesome!
Mera: [to Arthur] Welcome home.
Orm: The beast has awakened. The time has come for Atlantis to rise again.
Orm: The war is coming to the surface whether you like it or not. You are not going to win this.
Orm: The war is coming to the surface, and I am bringing the wrath of the Seven Seas with me.
Orm: My brother has come from the surface to challenge me for the throne!
Arthur Curry: I call it an ass-whooping.
Arthur Curry: I’m no leader. I came because I have no choice. I came to save my home, and the people that I love.
Mera: [to Arthur] You think you’re unworthy to lead because you’re of two different worlds. That is exactly why you are worthy.
Mera: Billions will die unless you help us.
Arthur Curry: I’m not a king.
Mera: Atlantis has always had a king. Now it needs something more.
Arthur Curry: But what could be greater than a king?
Mera: A hero.
