Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Tyler: Just sit down for one second. Okay? 
Anne: Alright. 
Tyler: l'll tell you everything l know. My ass could end up in jail for this, but l'll tell you. We spliced genes from different species to create the ultimate killer organism. Grunions that could live out of water... the common flying fish you see in the bay here, so it could live in all environments. Understand? 
Anne: My God. We've got to tell somebody right now.

I just can't figure out why James Cameron used a pseudonym for this script. Clearly a ton of thought and care went into its scientific exploration. You know now that I think about it, maybe his entire career obsessed with Ocean Life was born here with this, his very first film - or maybe his entire career has been an apology for this, his very first film? Fuck that, this movie's fun. Happy 62nd birthday, Jimmy - if you put some flying piranha into the new Avatar movies all will be forgiven...
