Escape from the Planet of the Apes
Movie Quote Quiz

Tailor: May I measure your inside leg, sir?
Cornelius: No.

Armando: If it is man's destiny one day to be dominated, then oh please, God let him be dominated by such as you.

Reporter at Hotel: Dr. Cornelius, tell me: ho do you find our women?
Cornelius: Very human.

Cornelius: I do know this: One of the reasons for man's original downfall was your peculiar habit of murdering one another. Man destroys man. Apes do not destroy apes.

Dr. Zira: We are peaceful creatures. We are happy to be here. May we be unchained?

Dr. Zira: Because I loathe bananas.

Dr. Lewis Dixon: Can you read a map?
Cornelius: I'm an archaeologist. I can even draw one.

Armando: You're asking me to risk imprisonment for the sake of two fugitive apes? The answer is: a thousand times, yes.

Cornelius: By the time the plague was contained, man was without pets. Of course, for man this was intolerable. I mean, he might kill his brother, but he could not kill his dog.

Dr. Zira: A marriage bed is made for two. But every damn morning, it's the woman who has to make it. We have heads as well as hands. I call upon men to let us use them.

Dr. Otto Hasslein: Zira, wine is an excellent restorative, I assure you, especially in cases of pregnancy.

Plot hole: While it is essential to the story, there is a problem with apes in the space ship. While it is the one that took Taylor to the future, there is no way the chimps could have salvaged the ship from the water (plus there wasn't enough time for such a salvage operation. Kira and Cornelius were living in the ape city we see in "Beneath the Planet of the Apes" never mentioning to Brent that they found a spaceship he could travel back with). They didn't have the technology for such an operation, no diving suits, and chimps are scared of water. Also, the water would have destroyed the power systems of the ship when it sank. (00:00:25)
