Connor Temple: Philip! The machine doesn't save the world. It destroys it.

Philip Burton: Well, you know that's not true, because you helped design it.

Connor Temple: And it was a mistake. You have to listen to me. Matt says that-...

Philip Burton: Matt is a soldier, a grunt.

Connor Temple: He's from the future! He was sent back because the world he was living in was dying. Because of us, Philip. Because of the machine that we built. I'm sorry, Philip. I can't let you turn it on.

Philip Burton: You have no idea how ridiculous you look right now, Connor.

Connor Temple: See, I know that you think you're doing the right thing, but you couldn't be more wrong. New Dawn kills everything.

Philip Burton: That is pure nonsense.

James Lester: So I leave you for a matter of days and in that time, you

[to Conner]

James Lester: Nearly destroyed the ARC, and you

[to Matt]

James Lester: Turn out to be either a visitor from the future or, in fact, and I think this is the more likely option, clinically mad.

Matt Anderson: The former, but then I would say that if I was clinically mad right?

James Lester: Don't you have security checks for this sort of thing?

Captain Becker: Sorry, sir, the machine that checks whether people are from the future was out of order.

James Lester: I'll do the sarcasm, if you don't mind.

James Lester: So, Philip was in league with Helen and the machine he's building is the trigger to the end of the world?

Matt Anderson: In a nutshell.

James Lester: I'll talk to the Minister, see if I can get a DA25, get him shut down.

Connor Temple: Well, as daring, last-minute attempts to save the world go, that's really... bureaucratic.

Emily Merchant: What if you're not supposed to stop the machine? What if it's actually your intervention that makes everything go wrong?

Captain Becker: What the hell is Convergence?

Matt Anderson: Multiple anomalies opening simultaneously all over the world.

Emily Merchant: Can you stop it?

Matt Anderson: No. I'm not supposed to, no one is. Convergence is a natural phenomenon. I'm supposed to stop New Dawn, which has been designed to interrupt Convergence.

Emily Merchant: But what if you don't?

Matt Anderson: Then it's the start of the end.

Captain Becker: ...Can't I just shoot something?

Matt Anderson: Every million years or so, the magnetic poles of the earth reverse. Anomalies are part of this transition. In order to survive, life on earth has to adapt to the new conditions. And it *can*. As long as Convergence is allowed to run its natural path, which it has done every time until now.

Connor Temple: You knew this was going to happen. Yet when I told you about my theory on Convergence, you just dismissed it like it was nothing.

Philip Burton: I couldn't support your theory, Connor. If I had, you'd have become distracted, working on contingency plans for the ARC.

Connor Temple: Exactly. Now we're not ready and people are going to die.

James Lester: I've just come from the Minister's office.

Matt Anderson: How did it go?

James Lester: His exact words, "The world's in chaos, we've got dinosaurs rampaging the streets and you're worried about Philip's research, have you gone completely insane?"

Matt Anderson: That well, huh?

James Lester: The official line is our only priority is managing the anomalies and the creature incursions.

Matt Anderson: Unofficially?

James Lester: Stop him. Do whatever you have to.

Jess Parker: There are too many I can't control it. We need more medics, more locking devices more people. I just...

James Lester: Jess, Look at me. Jess, you are the hub of this operation, you may not get the credit you deserve but you do a brilliant job and if anyone can pull us through this, you can.

Jess Parker: That's the nicest thing you've ever said to me.

James Lester: I think it's actually the nicest thing I've said to anyone, including my wife

Jess Parker: Do you mean it?

James Lester: Every word, now get back to work before we both start crying and hugging.

James Lester: If it's personnel you need, I appear to be kicking my heels. What have you got for me in the field? Preferably something cuddly and vegetarian, because this is my best shirt.

Matt Anderson: Shut it down now, Philip!

Philip Burton: Have you seen outside? It's chaos. This machine will stop all that.

Matt Anderson: Nature has to be allowed to run its own course. You're about to destroy the world. I've seen the results of your work. Is that what you want for your legacy?

Philip Burton: There are dinosaurs roaming the streets.

Matt Anderson: That's what the ARC's for!

Philip Burton: The ARC has failed. We don't need containment, we need radical solutions.

Jess Parker: I don't believe it, there's another one. It's outside, the carpark.

James Lester: Oh my god, My new Jag's in the carpark. This time its personal.

[Runs down and shots a creature with an EMD]

James Lester: Oi! Have you any idea how much that thing cost?

Philip Burton: The only problem is you believe the world will be destroyed when I switch this machine on. And I believe it will be destroyed if I don't.

Matt Anderson: Philip, you've got to listen to me, I've seen this! You're going to kill everything!

Philip Burton: Only one of us can be right.
