Victor Frankenstein: And I'm frightened that if I tell you the truth, I'll lose you.
Elizabeth: You'll lose me if you don't.
Victor Frankenstein: Do you share my madness?
Walton: No, not madness.
Victor Frankenstein: What, then?
Walton: There is a passage to the North Pole. And I will find it.
Victor Frankenstein: At the cost of your own life and the lives of your own crew?
Walton: Lives come and go. If we succeed, our names will live on forever. I will be hailed as the benefactor of our species.
Victor Frankenstein: You're wrong. I of all men know that.
Victor Frankenstein: I haven't got time to argue.
Elizabeth: Oh, isn't it convenient? Or doesn't it fit in with your plans? Don't you ever think of anything or anyone than yourself?
