Lily Houghton: Legend has it there is a tree in the Amazon that possesses unparalleled healing powers. And the Arrowhead is the key to unlocking it.
Society Member: [as Lily’s trying to take the arrowhead] Stop her!
Lily Houghton: [referring to the spear in her hand] Hello. Uh, I just wanted you to know, this has been mislabeled.
Lily Houghton: [as she lands onto to a topless double-decker bus with soldiers] Are you shipping out, lads?
Lily Houghton: Haven’t you been dreaming about adventure?
Frank Wolff: Of all the jungle cruises you can take in the Amazon, this one is undoubtedly the cheapest, but also the most thrilling. Heads up, coming through.
Frank Wolff: [as he’s taking out a group of tourists through the Amazon] Marauders.
[as the marauders try to attack the boat]
Frank Wolff: Natives.
[mouths to one of the natives]
Frank Wolff: Come on.
[the native waves at him and they leave]
Frank Wolff: Ladies and gentlemen, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The backside of water.
[one of the tourists looks at him in confusion]
Frank Wolff: It’s the eighth wonder of the world.
Nilo: Bonjourno, Frankie boy!
Frank Wolff: Mr. Nilo. Please don’t call me that.
Nilo: I’m going to keep your engine. I get my money, then you get it back.
Nilo’s Parrot: Frank owes me money.
Lily Houghton: [to McGregor] We’re headed upriver to Lagrimas de Cristal. We must secure our travel, come on.
Lily Houghton: [knocking on his office door] Mr. Nilo. Hello?
Nilo’s Parrot: Frank owes me money.
Frank Wolff: Not a good time.
Lily Houghton: My name is Dr. Lily Houghton. My brother and I are looking for passage upriver.
Frank Wolff: Please go away.
Lily Houghton: I have a lot of money.
[Frank immediately opens the door]
Frank Wolff: What’s out there in the jungle, is not a fun vacation.
Lily Houghton: Well, I’m not here for a vacation.
Frank Wolff: [to Lily] If you believe in legends, you should believe in curses too.
Frank Wolff: You’re going to beg me to turn back.
Lily Houghton: Well, I look forward to disappointing you.
Frank Wolff: Ten thousand to bring you there alive. Dead, it’s fifteen thousand.
Lily Houghton: Why should I pay more dead?
Frank Wolff: Dead, I’d have to carry you. Dead’s a lot harder, lady.
Frank Wolff: Here we go.
Lily Houghton: I cannot swim.
Frank Wolff: You booked a river cruise, and you can’t swim? The price just went up.
Frank Wolff: Do you want to turn back?
Lily Houghton: Nope. Just getting started.
Lily Houghton: Sometimes it just needs a bit of a…
Frank Wolff: Nobody touches my engine but me.
[as Frank turns, Lily kicks the engine]
Frank Wolff: What did I just…
Lily Houghton: [as the engine starts] There you go!
Frank Wolff: We’re going to do this together.
Kidnapper: There they are!
Lily Houghton: Frank, follow me.
Kidnapper: Stop her!
[accidentally punches Frank in the face]
Lily Houghton: Oh! God. Sorry Frank!
Frank Wolff: It’s alright. Strong form.
Frank Wolff: So what are you doing out here?
Lily Houghton: There is a legend, in the jungles of the Amazon, of a tree that heals all. It could change the world. But if it gets into the wrong hands, it could awaken a great evil. I believe that the legend is real.
Frank Wolff: Which it’s not.
Lily Houghton: And I’m going to find it.
Frank Wolff: Which you won’t.
Lily Houghton: And when I do, just imagine the lives that could be saved.
Frank Wolff: I’ve been looking for this tree longer than anybody. I’ve tracked the legend to every village, every island. Nothing. You’re searching for something that can’t be found.
Lily Houghton: But you’ve never had the key.
Frank Wolff: Let’s do something that’s safe. Let’s go see some elephants.
Lily Houghton: There are no elephants in the Amazon. And I don’t even like elephants.
Frank Wolff: Lady, everybody likes elephants.
Frank Wolff: Know this about the jungle, everything that you see wants to kill you, and can.
Frank Wolff: [referring to the tiger] Careful. They can smell fear.
Lily Houghton: I am not afraid.
[the tiger roars]
Lily Houghton: Oh, my gosh.
Frank Wolff: Who brings a submarine to the Amazon?
Lily Houghton: [the submarine fires a torpedo at their boat] Frank! Frank! Frank! Frank! Frank!
Frank Wolff: [Frank grabs hold of Lily as she’s running in the jungle] I got you.
[he swings them on a tree vine]
Frank Wolff: Hold on!
[Frank’s foot lands on a roof]
Lily Houghton: Frank, get it.
Frank Wolff: Hold on.
Lily Houghton: Come on.
Frank Wolff: I got it.
Lily Houghton: Frank?
Frank Wolff: [his foot starts to slip] I don’t got it.
Lily Houghton: No, no, no, no, no.
Lily Houghton: [after Frank’s botched saving of her] For goodness sake! Just leave me alone! That was a disaster!
Frank Wolff: It didn’t go the way I planned.
Frank Wolff: That’s impossible.
Lily Houghton: The myth is real.
McGregor Houghton: She was always chasing after some far-fetched idea.
McGregor Houghton: There’s no such thing as curses.
