Planet of the Apes (1968 film) Quotes

Charlton Heston as George Taylor

  • (Charlton Heston) "Chalk up another victory to the human spirit."
  • (Dr. Zira) "Taylor. Don't treat him that way."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Why not?"
  • (Dr. Zira) "It's humiliating."
  • (Charlton Heston) "The way you humiliated me? All of you? YOU led me around on a LEASH."
  • (Roddy McDowall) "That was different. We thought you were inferior."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Now you know better."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Don't try to follow me. I'm pretty handy with this."
  • (Maurice Evans) "Of that I'm sure. All my life I've awaited your coming and dreaded it."
  • (Charlton Heston) "What evidence? There were no weapons in that cave."
  • (Charlton Heston) "It's a mad house. A mad house."
  • (Charlton Heston) "I'm a seeker too. But my dreams aren't like yours. I can't help thinking that somewhere in the universe there has to be something better than man. Has to be."
  • (Charlton Heston) "If this is the best they've got around here, in six months we'll be running this planet."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape."
  • (Charlton Heston) "A planet where apes evolved from men? There's got to be an answer."
  • (Maurice Evans) "Don't look for it, Taylor. You may not like what you find."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Remember, never trust anybody over 30."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Well, at least they haven't tried to bite us."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Doctor, I'd like to kiss you goodbye."
  • (Dr. Zira) "All right, but you're so damned ugly."
  • (Charlton Heston) "There's your Minister of Science; honor-bound to expand the frontiers of knowledge --"
  • (Dr. Zira) "Taylor, please."
  • (Charlton Heston) "-- except that he's also chief Defender of the Faith."
  • (Maurice Evans) "There is no contradiction between faith and science -- true science."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Are you willing to put that statement to the test?"
  • (Roddy McDowall) "Taylor, I would much rather --"
  • (Charlton Heston) "Take it easy -- you saved me from this fanatic, maybe I can return the favor."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Imagine me needing someone. Back on Earth I never did. Oh, there were women. Lots of women. Lots of love-making but no love. You see, that was the kind of world we'd made. So I left, because there was no one to hold me there."
  • (Charlton Heston) "You did it. You cut up his brain, you bloody baboon."
  • (Charlton Heston) "And that completes my final report until we reach touchdown. We're now on full automatic, in the hands of the computers. I have tucked my crew in for the long sleep and I'll be joining them soon. In less than an hour, we'll finish our sixth month out of Cape Kennedy. Six months in deep space; by our time, that is. According to Dr. Haslein's theory of time, in a vehicle travelling nearly the speed of light, the Earth has aged nearly 700 years since we left it, while we've aged hardly at all. Maybe so. This much is probably true; the men who sent us on this journey are long since dead and gone. You who are reading me now are a different breed; I hope a better one. I leave the 20th century with no regrets. But one more thing; if anybody's listening, that is. Nothing scientific. It's purely personal. But seen from out here everything seems different. Time bends. Space is boundless. It squashes a man's ego. I feel lonely. That's about it. Tell me, though. Does man, that marvel of the universe, that glorious paradox who sent me to the stars, still make war against his brother? Keep his neighbor's children starving?"
  • (Charlton Heston) "Did I tell you about Stewart? Now there was a lovely girl."
  • (Charlton Heston) "The most precious cargo we'd brought along, she was -- to be the new Eve."
  • (Charlton Heston) "With our hot and eager help, of course."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Probably just as well she didn't make it this far."

Buck Kartalian as Julius

  • (Buck Kartalian) "Shut, up you freak."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Julius, you --"
  • (Buck Kartalian) "I said shut up."
  • (Buck Kartalian) "You know the saying, "Human see, human do.""

Maurice Evans as Dr. Zaius

  • (Maurice Evans) "Ah, yes; the young ape with a shovel. I hear you're planning another archeological expedition. Cornelius, a friendly word of warning; as you dig for artifacts, be sure you don't bury your reputation."
  • (Maurice Evans) "Dr. Zira, I must caution you. Experimental brain surgery on these creatures is one thing, and I'm all in favor of it. But your behavior studies are another matter. To suggest that we can learn anything about the simian nature from a study of man is sheer nonsense. Why, man is a nuisance. He eats up his food supply in the forest, then migrates to our green belts and ravages our crops. The sooner he is exterminated, the better. It's a question of simian survival."
  • (Maurice Evans) "Have you forgotten your scripture, the thirteenth scroll? "And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.""
  • (Maurice Evans) "You are right, I have always known about man. From the evidence, I believe his wisdom must walk hand and hand with his idiocy. His emotions must rule his brain. He must be a warlike creature who gives battle to everything around him, even himself."
  • (Maurice Evans) "I see you've brought the female of your species. I didn't realize that man could be monogamous."
  • (Charlton Heston) "On this planet, it's easy."
  • (Maurice Evans) "The Forbidden Zone was once a paradise. Your breed made a desert of it, ages ago."
  • (Maurice Evans) "You are a menace. A walking pestilence."

Roddy McDowall as Cornelius

  • (Roddy McDowall) "Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death."
  • (Roddy McDowall) "Taylor, you are not in command here. Put down that gun."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Shut up."
  • (Roddy McDowall) "Well Taylor, we're all fugitives now."
  • (Charlton Heston) "Do you have any weapons, any guns?"
  • (Roddy McDowall) "The best, but we won't need them."
  • (Charlton Heston) "I'm glad to hear it. I want one anyway."

Jeff Burton as Dodge

  • (Jeff Burton) "Which direction?"
  • (Charlton Heston) "That way --"
  • (Jeff Burton) "Any particular reason?"
  • (Charlton Heston) "None at all --"
  • (Jeff Burton) "The question is not so much where we are as when we are."

Robert Gunner as Landon

  • (Robert Gunner) "You don't seem too cut up about it --"
  • (Charlton Heston) "It's too late for a wake. She's been dead nearly a year."

Lou Wagner as Lucius

  • (Lou Wagner) "Why did you do that? Scrape off your hair?"
  • (Charlton Heston) "In my world, when I left it, only kids your age wore beards."
  • (Lou Wagner) "You can't trust the older generation."

James Daly as Honorious

  • (James Daly) "Tell us, why are all apes created equal?"
  • (Charlton Heston) "Some apes, it seems, are more equal than others."
