Forbidden Planet Quotes

Walter Pidgeon as Dr. Morbius

  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Altaira. No."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "How ironic that a simple scholar, with no ambition, beyond a modest measure of seclusion, should out of the clear sky, find himself besieged by an army of fellow creatures, all grimly determined to be of service."
  • (Robby the Robot) "Morbius. Morbius."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "What?"

  • (Commander Adams) "Could Robby be wrong?"
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "No. Never."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "I feel sorry for you, young man."
  • (Commander Adams) "Feel sorry for your daughter, Morbius."
  • (Anne Francis) "It's listening."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Alta, go into my study."
  • (Commander Adams) "You still refuse to face the truth."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "What truth?"
  • (Commander Adams) "Morbius, that thing out there; it's you."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "You're insane. How else would you have led it here, where Alta must see you torn to pieces?"
  • (Commander Adams) "You still think she's immune? She's joined herself to me, body and soul."
  • (Anne Francis) "Yes, and whatever comes, forever."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Say it's a lie. Shout, let it hear you out there. Tell it you don't love this man."

  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Stop it, Robby. Don't let it in. Kill it, Robby."
  • (Commander Adams) "It's no use. He knows it's your other self."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Now the commander."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "It's all right sir. Commanding officer doesn't need brains, just a good loud voice."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Guilty. Guilty. My evil self is at that door, and I have no power to stop it."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Because my daughter is alive in my brain from microsecond to microsecond."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Stop. No further. I deny you, I give you up."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "In 24 hours you must be 100 million miles out in space. Krell furnaces -- chain reaction -- they cannot be reversed."

  • (Commander Adams) "Whatever you know in here, your other self knows out there."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "I'm not a monster, you --"
  • (Commander Adams) "We're all part monsters in our subconscious, so we have laws and religion."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Altaira, I specifically asked you not to join us for lunch."

  • (Commander Adams) "What is the Id?"
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Id, id, id, id, id."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "It's a -- It's an obsolete term. I'm afraid once used to describe the elementary basis of the subconscious mind."
  • (Commander Adams) "Monsters from the id --"
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Huh?"
  • (Commander Adams) "Monsters from the subconscious. Of course. That's what Doc meant. Morbius. The big machine, 8,000 miles of klystron relays, enough power for a whole population of creative geniuses, operated by remote control. Morbius, operated by the electromagnetic impulses of individual Krell brains."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "To what purpose?"
  • (Commander Adams) "In return, that ultimate machine would instantaneously project solid matter to any point on the planet, In any shape or color they might imagine. For any purpose, Morbius. Creation by mere thought."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Why haven't I seen this all along?"
  • (Commander Adams) "But like you, the Krell forgot one deadly danger; their own subconscious hate and lust for destruction."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "The beast. The mindless primitive. Even the Krell must have evolved from that beginning."
  • (Commander Adams) "And so those mindless beasts of the subconscious had access to a machine that could never be shut down. The secret devil of every soul on the planet all set free at once to loot and maim. And take revenge, Morbius, and kill."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "My poor Krell. After a million years of shining sanity, they could hardly have understood what power was destroying them."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Yes, young man, all very convincing, but for one obvious fallacy. The last Krell died 2,000 centuries ago. But today, as we all know, there is still at large on this planet a living monster."
  • (Commander Adams) "Your mind refuses to face the conclusion."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "What do you mean?"
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "-- No doctor, not even though I were the mad scientist of the tape thriller --"
  • (Commander Adams) "Dr. Morbius, just what were the symptoms of all those other deaths, the unnatural ones I mean."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "The symptoms were striking Commander. One by one in spite of every safeguard my co-workers were torn literally limb from limb."
  • (Commander Adams) "By what?"
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "By some devilish thing that never once showed itself."
  • (Commander Adams) "And the Bellerophon?"
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Vaporized as the three remaining survivors tried to take her off."
  • (Commander Adams) "And yet in all these 19 years you personally have never again been bothered by this planetary force?"
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Only in nightmares of those times. And yet always in my mind I seem to feel the creature is lurking somewhere close at hand, sly and irresistible and only waiting to be reinvoked for murder."

Warren Stevens as Lt. 'Doc' Ostrow

  • (Warren Stevens) "It must have been renewing it's molecular structure from one microsecond to the next."
  • (Warren Stevens) "Morbius was too close to the problem. The Krell had completed their project. Big machine. No instrumentalities. True creation."
  • (Commander Adams) "Come on, Doc, let's have it."
  • (Warren Stevens) "But the Krell forgot one thing."
  • (Commander Adams) "Yes, what?"
  • (Warren Stevens) "Monsters, John. Monsters from the id."
  • (Commander Adams) "The Id? What's that? Talk, Doc."
  • (Commander Adams) "Doc?"
  • (Commander Adams) "Oh, Doc. Doc."
  • (Warren Stevens) "The total potential here must be nothing less than astronomical."
  • (Walter Pidgeon) "Nothing less. The number 10 raised almost literally to the power of infinity."

Richard Anderson as Chief Quinn

  • (Richard Anderson) "I'll bet any quantum mechanic in the service would give the rest of his life to fool around with this gadget."
  • (Richard Anderson) "Now with every facility of the ship I think I might be able to rebuild it. But frankly, the book says no. It came packed and liquid born in a suspended gravity."
  • (Commander Adams) "Alright so it's impossible, how long will it take?"
  • (Richard Anderson) "Well, if I don't stop for breakfast --"

Earl Holliman as Cook

  • (Earl Holliman) "Look, never mind the sir, mister, but I'm a stranger on this so called planet and I was just wondering if, well if you could tell me where I could -- , a guy could get ahold of the real stuff?"
  • (Robby the Robot) "Real stuff?"
  • (Earl Holliman) "Just for cooking purposes you understand. I take a big pride in my duties."
  • (Robby the Robot) "Pardon me, sir. Stuff?"
  • (Earl Holliman) "Oh, just about one jolt left. Oh, Genuine Ancient Rocket Bourbon. See here?"
  • (Earl Holliman) "Well you low living contraption, I oughta take a can opener to you."
  • (Robby the Robot) "Quiet please, I am analyzing. BELCH. Yes, relatively simple alcohol molecules with traces of fusel oil. Would 60 gallons be sufficient?"
  • (Earl Holliman) "Gallons? Mister, I been from here to there in this galaxy and I just want you to know you're the most understanding soul I ever met up with."
