Prisca: [as Maddox is singing along to a song] Sing it, girl.
Young Maddox: Mom, now I can’t.
Young Trent: Her spontaneity has been stripped from her.
Prisca: [to Maddox] You have such a beautiful voice. I can’t wait to hear it when you’re older.
Young Trent: [moviequotesandmore.com] You said five minutes. Technically, it’s been way, way more than five minutes. Are we close?
Prisca: Stop wishing away this moment. Look out the window, and look how pretty it is.
Prisca: [referring to the resort] Can you believe I found this online.
Idlib: I don’t have friends.
Young Trent: I’m your friend.
Idlib: You’ll leave.
Young Trent: My mom might let me FaceTime you. Then we can be friends. You can come over to my house and make up stories. Then we can go to the same college together, and become neighbors with mortgages.
Prisca: We were on a course to separate. That’s confusing enough for us. Let’s not bring an irrelevant medical condition into this. Let’s get through this, Guy. Compartmentalize. It’s only for three days.
Prisca: You’re always thinking about the future! It makes me feel not seen!
Guy: You’re always thinking about the past. You work in a goddamn museum!
Resort Manager: [moviequotesandmore.com] Well, there’s a private beach on the nature preserve side of the island. It’s impossible to find. It’s surrounded by stunning rocks, very unusual minerals. Oh, it’s a once in a lifetime experience, so. A natural anomaly. I only recommend it to certain guests. But I liked you guys immediately. Alright? You’re a nice family. So I could arrange a van to take you, if…
Prisca: Sounds like a great memory for us.
Resort Manager: It’s our little secret. I’ll make all the arrangements.
Charles: Oh, it can’t be that secret a beach. We were told to keep it quiet.
Guy: So were we.
Prisca: [as they reach the beach] Wow. I just got chills.
Young Maddox: Oh, my God. That’s Mid-Sized Sedan!
Guy: What? Mid what?
Young Maddox: He’s a rapper! More Dough for the Cooking?
Charles: [referring to the dead woman] Was she with you?
Mid-Sized Sedan: I was waiting for her. She swam out by herself. Yoh, I don’t know what the hell happened. I ain’t saying nothing else.
Agnes: My chest feels funny.
Chrystal: Well, you know, we should’ve gotten a yacht, like I suggested, Agnes. You shouldn’t have fought me on that. You see? Now we’re mixed up in some island issue.
Guy: [moviequotesandmore.com] We’re from Philadelphia. I’m on a break here with my wife and kids. That’s them. Well, yeah, over there. And for the record, I know most people who die on vacation die from sun exposure, overexertion, overindulgence of food or alcohol, or a mixture of all of the above, ninety-nine point four percent of the time.
Mid-Sized Sedan: How you know all this?
Guy: I’m an actuary. I calculate people’s insurance rates based on their risk profile.
Charles: [referring to Mid-Sized Sedan] Well, I guess our beach day’s over. You got to keep an eye on him, and the body.
Guy: I think we will all have to leave this beach.
Jarin: Wait. Why?
Jarin: What happened?
Guy: [Charles points to the dead woman] We really don’t know what happened.
Charles: Well, I think this man had something to do with it.
Mid-Sized Sedan: Man, if I was involved, why would I be standing around, bro? Damn.
Charles: [moviequotesandmore.com] Well, we’re all in this now. We are responsible for that woman. And I’ve got nothing against this man. I’m just doing what needs to be done.
Prisca: [to Charles] You don’t know me. I curate exhibits for museums. I’m telling you this because I want you to trust me, and not think I’m being hysterical when I say there’s something very wrong with my child.
Trent Aged 11: You look different too.
Kara Aged 11: How?
Trent Aged 11: I don’t know. You just look different.
Chrystal: [as Agnes suddenly dies] Is this happening?!
Charles: She couldn’t take the shock. She saw a murdered woman, and her heart couldn’t take it.
Patricia: How old are you guys?
Jarin: I’ll guess. I’m good at this. You’re eleven, right, Trent?
Trent Aged 11: I’m six.
Jarin: No. Really, are you ten, eleven?
Maddox Aged 16: He’s not lying. He’s six.
Trent Aged 11: I’m specifically six and a quarter. She’s eleven.
Prisca: [moviequotesandmore.com] Have you seen my children?
Jarin: Is everyone trying to play a joke on us?
Patricia: Aren’t these your children?
Trent Aged 11: I’m right here, mom.
Maddox Aged 16: Mom? Mom, why are you looking at me like that?
Jarin: [referring to the cave] For some reason, people are blacking out going this way. Three people have blacked out now.
Prisca: What I know is that we have to get these kids to a hospital. Now! Look, let’s stop talking about it. The kids are scared.
Prisca: [referring to Maddox and Trent] If I cry, please don’t let them see.
Guy: I won’t.
Prisca: Your hands are shaking.
Guy: [moviequotesandmore.com] We’re on a beach with two unrelated dead bodies. That is just statistically impossible.
Prisca: All three kids are reacting to something. Only the kids. I mean, look at the doctor’s daughter! The kids are reacting to something they ate. Or they caught something. We’re on a remote, undeveloped island, but we have a doctor here. So, let’s get the doc to look at the kids.
Charles: [after Charles slashes his face] Listen, I don’t know why I did that. I thought he was going to hurt me. Sorry. Sorry.
Mid-Sized Sedan: What’s he talking about, “sorry”?
