Creature from the Black Lagoon
Movie Quote Quiz

Lucas: What kind of fishing is that? Who eats rocks?

Carl Maia: How old they are.

Carl Maia: Well, now we have a lab, such as it is.
David Reed: Let's hope we have some use for it.

Kay Lawrence: Well, it seems to me a scientist has need for both vision and confidence.
Mark Williams: I didn't mean it as any personal criticism, Doctor, it's just that I also look forward to success.

Lucas: I can tell you something about this place. The boys around here call it "The Black Lagoon" - a paradise. Only they say nobody has ever come back to prove it.

David Reed: We didn't come here to fight with monsters. We're not equipped for it. We came here to find fossils.

Lucas: It is impossible. But I, Lucas, will do it.

Dr. Thompson: Demon, eh? Well, it's no more far-fetched than your gillman.
Lucas: There are many strange legends in the Amazon. Even I, Lucas, have heard the legend of a man-fish.

Continuity mistake: When Richard Denning and Richard Carlson approach the boat ladder coming back from their first dive in the Black Lagoon, you can see the net hanging underwater just to their right. It already has the huge torn hole that is in it when they hoist it up after the creature is caught for a moment in a later scene.
