President James Dale: Why are you doing this? Why? Isn’t the universe big enough for both of us? [laughs] What’s wrong with you people? We could work together. Why be enemies? Because we’re different? Is that why? Think of the things we could do. Think how strong we could be. Earth. . .and Mars. . .together. There is nothing that we could not accomplish. Think about it. Think. . .about it. [beat] Why destroy, when we can create? We can have it all. Or we can smash it all! [beat] Why can’t we work out our differences? [beat] Why can’t we. . .work things out? [beat] Little people. . .why can’t we all. . .just. . .get along?
I have loved the work of Tim Burton as long as I can remember. I’ve seen all of his films – except his remake of Planet of the Apes; the original series is too dear to my heart and I refuse to have them tainted. Incidentally, I saw all but two of his feature films in the order that they were released, and most in theaters.
