I/ Jurassic Park I

INSIDE THE CAR - Timmy tries to unwedge himself. A thin trickle of blood runs down his forehead. He's jammed between the crushed roof and the bent bench seat. He can't free himself.

The Rex begins to SHOVE the cruiser toward Grant and Lex. They back up but they have very few feet left - they're almost at the embankment. But if they don't move, they'll by crushed by the oncoming car.

Grant slings Lex onto his back. She grabs her hands around his neck and digs her feet into his sides. Grant begins to climb over the downed fence and into the embankment - it's a huge drop!

Grant grabs a broken cable and lowers himself and Lex over the side of the embankment.

Just in time as the Rex SHOVES the cruiser further. Now, the cruiser TEETERS right on the edge, turning again on its side. Tim hangs halfway out of the car, unable to get out further.

Grant, with Lex on his back, slides down the cable, rappelling down the embankment. ABOVE, the car looms over them, rocking on the edge. Lex looks up and grabs Grant so tightly, she chokes him, unknowingly.

Grant, eyes bulging, sees the danger from above. He pushes off the wall and swings them toward the next hanging cable. He reaches out and -


- the T-Rex BELLOWS and lowers her head, and gives a final shove. Timmy and the cruiser SAIL INTO SPACE. Timmy SCREAMS!

Grant and Lex swing out of the way as the cruiser sails past them. Lex SCREAMS, squeezing Grant's neck even tighter! They watch helplessly as the cruiser BOUNCES off the wall and CRASH-LANDS into the top of a tree at the base of the wall.

Grant and Lex stare down at the wreck in the tree. Timmy can't be seen. Grant, choking from Lex's grip, grabs her fingers.

GRANT Let ... go ... please.

The Rex ROARS above. They look up.

THE REX paws the air, GRUNTS in frustration and STALKS off, LIGHTNING FLASHES.


Nedry speeds along the rain-slick road, fish-tailing as he goes.

CLOSE ON - Nedry at the wheel.

NEDRY'S POV - the dark, wet road running alongside a ten-foot chain-link fence. Suddenly, a beast-like visage blurs across the road.

Nedry swerves. The jeep skids. Nedry tries to over-steer, can't bring the careening jeep under control.

The jeep crashes though the fence, bounces down a cement culvert, and dives into a raging gully.

Nedry curses. He spins the wheel. The tires spin and spray. The jeep's hopelessly stuck in the gully. From Nedry's seat in the jeep, he cranes his head around, examining his situation.

NEDRY'S POV - On the opposite side of the gully, there is an equipment graveyard. By the titled jeep headlights, steely monsters all around can be seen - discarded earth movers, graders, and tractors.

Nedry gets out of the jeep, grabs the winch from the jeep's back end. and wades over to an abandoned tractor.

NEDRY Shit. I'm going to have to change clothes.

He loops the winch around the tractor's base. Suddenly, he stops and looks around as he hears a gentle HOOTING. He squints, looking at the strange steel graveyard lit by the bright beams of the jeep headlights.

HOOT! HOOT! A distinctive HOOTING. Nedry looks up in fear. SILENCE.

Nedry starts moving toward his jeep. Again, the HOOT! Nedry stops, looks right, looks left. A RUSTLE in the trees. Nedry's head cocks.

Looking through trees, lit by the strong beams, Nedry sees a SPITTER in the eerie mist. Now it's gone. Now it's back. It circles Nedry warily, hunting him. Nedry stares.

NEDRY I hope this is one of them herbivores.

Nedry scrambles the other way, full-tilt. Hop, hop, and the Spitter drops in front of Nedry from the other side. HOOT!

Nedry jumps back, lands on his butt. The Spitter zips in from the side - HOOT!

Nedry doubles back, racing through the abandoned equipment, ducking and rolling under a cement mixer, spinning past a tree. He splashes down the embankment, trying to get to his jeep. He uses the winch line to steady himself again the raging current. He finally reaches the jeep, swings open the door - and, surging out of the water like a demonic apparition, is the SPITTER! Nedry backs away, directly into the glare of the headlights!

CLOSE ON - the Spitter. It's plume opens, bright orange gills swell out like an umbrella around its neck. Something squirts beneath its jaws.

A big glob SMACKS Nedry on the arm. He brushes it off.

NEDRY Gross.

EXTREME CLOSEUP - the Spitter's head. The jaws puff, the hood flares out, the neck snaps forward. And - it spits.

This glob misses Nedry, splashes off the steaming headlight.

VERY EXTREME CLOSEUP - The Spitter's swollen poison sacs are inflated. They fire!

This glob hits Nedry in the eyes. He SCREAMS.

NEDRY I'm blind, I'm blind.

He falls against the jeep, rubbing his eyes. The Spitter calmly hops to the embankment and watches the blinded Nedry weave drunkenly in the water. Nedry grabs onto the jeep and pulls himself along toward the driver's door. The Spitter stalks, watching him.

Nedry pulls open the jeep door, thrusts his head in, slams it against the door frame. Now Nedry heaves his whole body into the jeep. The Spitter's long ostrich-like legs stretch and bend in an easy gait as it closes it on Nedry.

Nedry sits behind the wheel, unseeing as the Spitter watches patiently turns his blind eyes that way.

A long beat. The Spitter leaps forward, the CAMERA PULLS BACK WIDER AND WIDER. Nedry lets out an ear-splitting SCREAM and the car horn BLARES.


Timmy lies against a spidered side window, his head pressed against the door handle. He pushes himself up on one elbow, opens his eyes, and tries to focus. Rain has nearly stopped but a light drizzle hits him

Timmy tries to straighten up, but he's too dizzy. He stops and hears A CREAKING and feels the whole car gently swaying back and forth. With a further effort, he raises his body so that he's standing with his feet on the window frame and looks out the broken roof.

TIM'S POV - Dense foliage, moving in the wind, hard to see through. An open space and - THE GROUND, FORTY FEET AWAY!


Tim's cruiser is lying on its side, stuck in the higher branches of a tree on the hillside.

TIMMY Oh shit!

Timmy pulls his body up carefully, trying to get a better view. He grabs the steering wheel for support and it spins free in his hand.

CRACK! The cruiser slips a few inches down the tree. Timmy grabs the window frame and freezes. The car sways in the wind.

CRACK! The car slips a quick and rocky two feet.

TIMMY Oh shit, oh shit, oh shit, oh shit!

Timmy hears something. He raises his head very carefully. Climbing up the tree, pulling himself on a nearby branch, is Dr. Grant.

GRANT Timmy. Are you ok?

TIMMY Thank God you're here. Where's Lex?

GRANT Below. She's fine. Let's get you down.

Timmy nods.

Grant peers through the broken roof of the cruiser, analyzing Timmy's predicament. He cranes his head back to examine how the cruiser is supported in the tree. Grant turns back to Timmy.

GRANT Try the door you're leaning against. Nice and slow.

Timmy places his weight on the two sides of the door frame and reaches between his legs, trying to open the door handle. Stuck. CRACK! The cruiser drops another foot.

Grant scrambles down a couple branches until he is even with the cruiser again. He motions for Timmy to hold still.

Grant reaches across to the other car door and tries the outer door handle. This one opens and very slowly, he pushes open the door. Grant gingerly holds it half-open in mid-air.

GRANT Crawl this way. Slowly.

Carefully testing his weight with each step, Timmy lowers his body down. He pushes his legs out the door. They kick in the air and slowly come to rest on a lower branch. He lets himself down. Now he sits on a branch, a few feet below the cruiser.

CRACK! The cruiser drops. Grant still hangs onto the door but now his footing on the branch is gone. His legs hang in space. The cruiser hangs precariously above Timmy. They're all twenty feet in the air.

GRANT We're going to have to make a jump for it, Timmy. Okay?

Timmy agrees.

GRANT One, two, three, jump.

Timmy lets go and DROPS. Grant follows. So does the cruiser. It's hurtling right at them.

Timmy BANGS against the wet tree-trunk and slides down. Branches WHIP against his face, his hands SCRAPE against the trunk. Grant BOUNCES them. They scramble down as quick as they can.

Timmy pulls his hands along the sap-sticky surface of the tree. CRACK! Grant is stopped for a terrible instant - doubled over a branch, he flips himself over, dropping further. The cruiser jolts along, just a half-step behind them.

Timmy dives the last six feet and HITS the wet earth with a THUD! Grant CRASHES next to him. Before they can roll out of the way, the cruiser keeps coming. Grant and Timmy look up at it.

GRANT'S POV - The cruiser dropping, dropping toward them. And finally stops, just inches away, its dented grill grinning at them, its cracked headlight glaring.

Oil drips down on Grant. He grabs Timmy, who grabs the night goggles. The two roll away. That second the cruiser SMASHES to the ground.

Grant brushes himself off painfully, extends a hand to Timmy. Timmy slowly reaches up and pulls himself standing.

TIMMY Thanks, Dr. Grant.

GRANT You owe me one.

Grant turns around in a slow, fluid circle, checking out the forest.

GRANT Where'd Lex go?

They hear a faint WHIMPERING.

TIMMY There's Lex.

He runs. Grant follows.


Lex is curled up inside the drainpipe. Her baseball glove is in her mouth and she is rocking back and forth, rhythmically banging her head against the back of the pipe. She WHIMPERS.


Grant and Timmy arrive at the drainpipe and stare in at Lex.

GRANT Come on out now, Lex.

Lex continues to band her head. Timmy tries again.

TIMMY It's your turn to wear the goggles, Lex.

She shakes her head. He holds up her baseball but she doesn't look.

TIMMY I found your baseball.

LEX You did?

But she doesn't move. Grant speaks encouragingly.

GRANT Cone on, Lex, it must be cold in there. And tight. Why don't you come out?

LEX I'm afraid of the "animals".

TIMMY The "animals" are gone.

LEX Where did it go?

TIMMY I don't know but it's not here now.

LEX Are there any grownups out there?

GRANT I'm a grownup, Lex. Come on out. Gimmie you hand, come on, here you go.

LEX I'm hungry.

GRANT Me, too. We've got to get ourselves back to civilization.


Regis slowly crawls out from between a couple large boulders. He looks around carefully. He peels mud off his face and rubs his neck.

He touches his cheek.

CLOSE ON Regis' swollen cheek. He rubs it with his finger. Suddenly, he swats at his own mouth. He reaches in and pulls out a leech fat with blood. He hurls it to the ground, spitting. He grabs another off his arm and rips if off, leaving a bloody streak. He digs in his pants and pulls out another. He SCREAMS.

As soon as he has done so, he knows he's made a mistake. He looks around frantically. Sees the Rex trot down the road toward him.

REGIS Noooooo!


Grant and the kids crest the hill. Grant puts on the night goggles and adjusts the dial and looks toward Regis. The kids can't see that far.

TIMMY What's going on?

Grant's green POV - Regis and the Rex bounding after him. Regis hugs a tree, unmoving.

Grant whispers to the kids.

GRANT It's Regis and the Rex is after him. But it's okay. Regis knows the Rex can't see him. Evidently, he can only see move- ment. Regis'll be ok if he stays still.

AFTER A LONG MOMENT, the tyrannosaur walks away, disappears into the shadows. Regis waits another long moment and releases his tree.

GRANT'S POV - The tyrannosaur leaps out of the shadows and knocks Regis to the ground. Regis jumps up and backs off. The animal knocks him right back down. Regis jumps up again and screams at the beast.

REGIS You don't want to hurt Mr. Regis. Go away. Ed's your friend. Back off!

THE REX watches him dance around. It goes toward him. This time its jaws are open. Regis SCREAMS and in the middle, the scream cuts off.

Grant lets the goggles fall off his face. They hit the ground with a METALLIC CLINK. The Rex turns toward Grant and the kids.

GRANT Let's go!

Grant grabs both the kids' hands and they begin to run.


Drops of water splat on a big fern. Light swims in the little puddle. In the sky above, clouds hurry by, intermittently revealing a half- obscured moon.

The torn fence lies in a crumpled, twisted mess. The wheel of a Land Cruiser spins. A little lizard runs in place on it.

The SOUND of the jeep's engine. It's Muldoon and Ellie.

THEIR POV - a single cruiser lies on its side in the middle of the road.

ELLIE Oh, My God! Where's the other one?

Before the cruiser stops, she jumps out. Muldoon shouts a whisper.


Ellie turns in the headlight beams. Muldoon tosses her a flashlight.

MULDOON Wait up.

Muldoon skids to a stop, leaps out of the car. He catches up to Ellie.

They share a frightened, apprehensive look. Muldoon gets on his knees and and touches a muddies area.

MULDOON T-Rex tracks.

Ellie looks out into the forest.

ELLIE Then they must be out there. They must be out there. I know it.

MULDOON Perhaps.

ELLIE No! They're out there.

MULDOON I've seen a lot of animal attacks in the bush. It's not as gory and horrifying to see as you'd think. No pools of blood or exposed bones. There is usually little or no evidence left behind. And if victims are small, a predator can kill by just shaking the little thing to death, eating it, and leave not so much as a button.

A definite RUSTLING in the brush.

Ellie jumps and SCREAMS. Muldoon puts his hand over her mouth and pushes her down. They both squat by the cruiser. SILENCE. Ellie swallows. Muldoon slowly gets up. Ellie follows.

Their flashlights swing back and forth in the night. Twigs crack under their feet.

Ellie hears the RUSTLE at the edge of the forest. She shines her light into the brush. She catches her breath. Her hand shakes.

Ellie flashes her beam right, left, up, down. Jumps. Something is coming at her, rolling at her. She gasps, steps back. It's too late. It's Gennaro. His limp body stops at her feet. She covers her mouth. Muldoon runs to her.

Gennaro is face-down. Muldoon takes his pulse.

MULDOON Thank God. (beat) We have to carry him. First I have to ...

He stands and removes his jacket.

CLOSE ON - Muldoon tears the jacket into long strips.

He wraps Gennaro's wounds.

MULDOON He's losing a lot of blood. Help me.

Muldoon and Ellie carry Gennaro to the jeep. They lay him on the back seat. Muldoon jumps in back with him. He keeps wrapping the wounds. Ellie starts the engine, looks back at him.

ELLIE Looks like you've been through this before.

Muldoon looks up.

MULDOON I told you I've seen big game attacks in Africa.

She starts the engine.

ELLIE Right.

Ellie skids out of there.


The dark room is lit with two outdoor torches. Light flickering on their faces, Arnold and Wu stare at the console screen.

WU Why?

ARNOLD Because Nedry messed with the code. That's why I'm checking it.

WU But that could take weeks. What would be faster? Try keychecks.

Arnold snaps his fingers, grabs Wu,

ARNOLD That's true. Keychecks will give me a record of every button Nedry pushed.

With a rapid series of keys, Arnold initiates "keystrokes". The computer displays a short series of commands. Arnold runs his finger down the screen.

ARNOLD Jesus, that's all he did all afternoon? He was just dicking around, maybe waiting to get his nerve up.

Wu points to a line. It reads: WHTE-RBT.OBJ

WU What's that?

ARNOLD Some sort of object. Let's see if we can trace it.

Arnold types FIND WHTE-RBT.OBJ. Nothing. He tries DEFINE WHTE-RBT.OBJ. Still nothing. LIST WHTE-RBT.OBJ. The screen fills with data. Each line defines another security system that has been shut off: SECURITY PERIMETER FENCES OFF/ SECURITY - INTERIOR FENCES OFF/ SECURITY - LABORATORY DOORS OFF/, etc.

WU What's it mean?

ARNOLD It wasn't a bug. It was a trap door that fat bastard left for himself. When he hit WHTE-RBT. OBJ, it initiates a set of commands that turned the whole goddamn park off. Hammond was right about him.

WU If I did that I'd leave a way to turn it back on. In case I had to. I'm sure Nedry did. You're find it.

Arnold nods grimly.


Hammond sits quietly in the deserted cafeteria, calmly spooning ice cream into his mouth. This room is lit by dozens of candles.

Muldoon walks in, stares at Hammond in the semi-darkness.

MULDOON We found Gennaro. He'd badly injured. Harding's tending to him in your quarters. He'll be all right if we can radio for help. Your grandchildren and Grant are somewhere in the park. I believe they're alive but I don't know where they are.

HAMMOND I'm sure you'll find them.

MULDOON I certainly hope so.

HAMMOND I'm sure we will. After all, I keep telling everyone, this park is made for children.

MULDOON Just so you understand that they're missing, sir.

HAMMOND Missing? Of course I know they're missing. You just said that. Look, Bob, let's not get carried away. We've had a little breakdown from the storm or whatever, and as a result we've had a regrettable, unfortunate accident. And that's all that happened. We're dealing with it. Arnold will get the computers cleaned up, and the radio and phone lines open. You'll find those kids and my good friend, Dr. Grant. I'm sure they'll want some of this ice cream. It's very good.


Dark. Ellie helps Harding get Gennaro comfortable on Hammond's couch. Blood from Gennaro's injuries stain the rich leather. Gennaro babbles.

GENNARO That Rex didn't even give me his full attention. That's what hurts. I was just an afterthought. I gave him my full attention.

HARDING He's had a lot of morphine.

GENNARO (sings) Not enough.

ELLIE I need to find Wu. I have to run a few tests in his lab.

HARDING He's probably in the control room, get- ting in the way while Arnold tries to put things together.

As Ellie leaves, Gennaro is singing a shanty in his morphine stupor.

GENNARO Yo ho, I'll close this place down ...


The ship is tossed around on a stormy sea.



The eggs are tossed around in the womb of the incubator. The swell settles but the rocking of one egg doesn't stop. The egg cracks, a silvery line runs down its side.


Somewhere in the dark park, laced by low fog, Grant, Timmy and Lex walk.

LEX I'm tired.

TIMMY You're too big to be carried.

LEX But I'm tired-tired.

GRANT Okay, Lex.

Grant picks her up.

GRANT Oof! You're heavy.

The full moon is blurred by drifting clouds. Their blunted shadows lead the three across an open field toward dark woods beyond. Grant is lost is thought, trying to decide where to go.

GRANT I think we're still in his paddock.

Lex's heavy eyes open. Her eyes grow big. She taps Grant's shoulder.


LEX Don't you see? Don't you see?


LEX The fence.

GRANT (squinting) No.

TIMMY Oh I do, right there!

Lex lets herself slide off Grant and runs into the woods. Timmy follows. Grant follows, squinting. Finally, he sees. A big smile.

The kids look up at a twelve foot high electric fence. Timmy gulps.

LEX Timmy's scared of heights.

Timmy spins in fury.

TIMMY Shut up.

Lex and Timmy stare at each other. No fighting - now. They relax.

GRANT Okay with the fence, Timmy?

Timmy eyes it. Nods hesitantly. They start to climb. Lex climbs easily.

LEX (mumbles quietly) 'Fraid of heights.

Timmy climbs tentatively. A dinosaur ROARS in the distance.

CLOSE ON - Timmy's foot loses its grip.

Timmy hangs for a moment, held only by his straining hands.

All three stop. Wait. Timmy regains his balance. Slowly, they proceed up and over.

On the other side, Grant looks around. More high trees. Beyond a field.

GRANT A herbivore grazing area. Excellent.

Grant starts to walk toward it. Timmy stops. Lets sits on a tree root.

TIM We gonna walk all night?

Grant looks at his watch.

GRANT Twelve hours before that ship reaches the mainland.

TIM We need sleep.

True, and Grant's thinking the same thing. He looks around, surveying the misty forest. He looks straight up into the beautiful, tall trees that ring the wide-open grassy meadow.

GRANT Up there.

TIM Climb? Again? I can't climb again?

Grant smiles.

GRANT Sure you can.

Grant checks out and rejects tree after tree. Near the meadow he finds it. A good, basic climbing tree.


Grant helps Lex get comfortable on his lap. Timmy tucks himself in between Grant's outstretched legs. Grant looks out. Back to kids.

Timmy and Lex are already snoring. Lex turns and hugs Grant close to her. She murmurs in her sleep. Grant starts to pat her shoulder when Timmy, without waking, reaches to her and strokes her hair.

TIMMY (mumbles) It's ok, Lex. Everything's gonna be okay.


CLOSE ON - amoeba-like creatures swimming in a pool.


Ellie lifts her head away from the powerful microscope.

The dark room is lit by flashlight. Battery packs power the microscope. Wu paces the room, regarding his eggs with dismay. Sitting on their long tables with no moving wands above them - no thermal sensors.

WU What is taking Arnold so long? This room is too cold. My eggs will be damaged.

Ellie swings the lens to Wu. Not so interested but peers in politely.

ELLIE No sign of those berries. Really interesting. There are indications of a similar virus in every tissue sample. But it's not in the ground. Could I look at some of the discarded embryos?

Wu reluctantly agrees. He opens a cabinet and brings her samples.

WU I'm sure you'll find your virus ... or a similar one. All animals carry many viruses in a dormant condition. It's almost impossible to say with certainty which are the same strains.

Ellie begins a test on a sample. She adds a reagent and marks up a slide. As she works:

ELLIE And yet from what Harding tells me, many of you animals have similar symptoms - besides the microvesicles, a lack of hunger, loss of reproductive urges, sores in the mouth and gums.

Wu waves his arms.

WU What the hell does Harding know? He's a veterinarian, not a pathologist.


Arnold pushes his chair away from his console and claps his hands as Muldoon walks in. Muldoon asks hopefully.

MULDOON What is it?

Arnold points to the screen.

ARNOLD That's it.

Muldoon comes closer.

MULDOON That's what?

ARNOLD I found the command to restore the original code. It resets the linked parameters.

MULDOON The fences and the power?

ARNOLD Right. And it does something else. It erases the code lines that refer to it. It destroys all evidence it was ever there.

MULDOON Nedry could steal the eggs, get back and reset the whole show. No one would ever miss him.

ARNOLD Watch this.

Arnold types in a command. The screen flickers and changes. Arnold and Muldoon look out the window as lights come on through out the park.

ARNOLD Hot damn!

MULDOON Are the fences back on?

ARNOLD You bet they are. It will take a few seconds to get up to full power, because we've got fifty miles of fence out there, and the generator has to feed the capacitors along the way. But in a half a minute we'll be back in business.

Arnold points to the transparent map of the park. On it, bright red lines snake out, moving throughout the park, as electricity surges through the fences.

MULDOON Motion sensors?

ARNOLD Got them too. It will be a few minutes while the computer counts. Then I'll tell you where Grant and the kids are and you can go and get them. But every- thing's working. Half past ten and we've got the whole thing back up and running.

Muldoon picks up a phone, shakes his head.

MULDOON Just hiss.


Grant snores. A mosquito buzzes around him. He waves him away and continues to sleep.

In the distance, a tiny BEEPING. Below the towering tree, across the field, a sensor beeps, it's green light blinks, and the beeping stops.

IN THE HIGH TREE, the branches sway. Grant and the kids sleep on.


The glowing, glass map. Arnold and Muldoon stare at it.

MULDOON What is taking so damn long? Where are they?

ARNOLD There's a lot of extraneous movement out there. Branches blowing, birds, back- ground movement. It may take, ah, okay, count's finished.

Muldoon looks at Arnold anxiously. Arnold looks down.

ARNOLD Hmmmm. I don't see them. Maybe they're out of range of a sensor.

MULDOON Shit. I don't know where they are. I wish I could go out there But I haven't got anything to use on the Rex. My rocket launcher's in the jeep Nedry stole. And going out with a big gun in the dark would be suicide.


Brightly lit again. Ellie performs tests with a centrifuge. She looks at Wu, who sits across from her in a high stool, stifling a yawn.

ELLIE Why don't you get some sleep, Dr. Wu? I'm just going to run a couple more tests and then I'm going to turn in myself.

Wu doesn't need to be told twice. He climbs off his stool.

WU No point in everyone being exhausted.

He starts to leave. He comes back and speaks consolingly at Ellie.

WU I'm sure Muldoon will find Dr. Grant as soon as there is light.

Ellie appreciates his effort, nods seriously, goes back to work.



Beautiful dark ocean. The sky is a rich blue. A morning star fades as the sky lightens. The Anne B is a small dot on the massive ocean.


Eggs sit in the incubator. A hand sprays them with foam. Leaves. CAMERA EXAMINES the eggs as the foam disperses. More cracks. One egg jumps with a bolt from within. It settles. Jumps again.


ESTABLISHING AERIAL - the primordial beauty of Isla Nublar at dawn.


Muldoon drives out into the park in Harding's jeep. THREE WORKERS travel with him. Each carries a rifle.


CAMERA LOOK DOWN on Grant, Lex and Timmy still sleeping in the tree. A large shadow falls on their quiet faces. Lex opens an eye. She SCREAMS.

Grant and Timmy wake up with a start.

THEIR POV - AS THE CAMERA LOOKS THROUGH THEIR LEGS AND TILTS UP right into the huge face of A DUCK-BILLED HADROSAUR, a gigantic dinosaur with cow eyes. Its head moves up through the canopy of the trees. Then the head swoops way down below. And returns to Grant's level and stares at his shoe.

The hadrosaur tastes Grant's shoe. The kids press tightly into Grant.

LEX He gonna eat us?

GRANT I don't think so. She's a ...

GRANT AND TIMMY ... herbivore.

The hadrosaur HONKS. Lex covers her ears. Grant smiles and motions to Lex. He picks a big fruit off the tree and tosses it into the hadrosaur's mouth. CHOMP. He feeds it again. Lex and Timmy toss a few.


The hadrosaur's big head swoops way down, momentarily gone.

When she returns, all three quickly gather fruits and throw them into her mouth. The hadrosaur pulls back with her giant mouthful of fruit. She pulls further and further back and then her huge head turns and moves down.

Grant, Lex and Timmy strain to see through the branches.

THEIR POV - The hadrosaur is feeding four scampering, baby hadrosaurs. Letting the fruit tumble from her mouth into theirs. Lex YELLS:

LEX Come here, babies! Get your breakfast!

The babies run to the base of the tree. The kids toss fruits right down to them. Lex and Timmy climb lower to feed them right from their hands.

Grant and the mother hadrosaur stare at each other. She sniffs his foot. He moves closer, straddling a branch. He lifts up her lip and examines her gums.

CLOSE ON - a ripped piece of fence stuck in her teeth.

Grant yanks it out. He lets it drop to the ground. He take a large leaf and rubs her teeth with it.

CLOSE ON - her mouth as Grant's hand touches the side of her tongue. He sees little tiny bumps.

The hadrosaur lets out a low groan. Grant is puzzled, rubs harder.

GRANT Like the trike. Maybe it's not the stones.

HONK! She pulls her mouth away. The baby hadrosaurs turn to the honking adult. She is leaving quickly. They follow quickly behind her. The small herd leaves, casually trampling trees as they go.


Muldoon and workers drive rapidly in the jeep. Suddenly, Muldoon slams on the brakes.

MULDOON'S POV - ABOUT TWENTY PROCOMPSOGNATHIDS (COMPYS), small chicken- sized scavenging dinosaurs, scramble across the road.

MULDOON Where the hell are they going?

Muldoon watches them cross. He thinks it over. Spins the wheel and follows them off the road.

MULDOON Let's see what's up.


Timmy bravely jumps from a very low branch. He smiles and looks at Grant, who's already on the ground. Grant looks off in the distance.

GRANT Tim, I think there's a motion sensor across the field and down there.

TIM Where's Lex?

ALONE IN THE BUSHES - Lex kneels. She holds a big fruit and calls:

LEX C'mere boy, c'mere.

She tosses the fruit.

CLOSE ON - the fruit rolling away.

Lex gets up and follows the rolling fruit. She picks it up.

LEX It's very, very good.

She tosses it again.

LEX C'mere boy, c'mere.

Lex's eyes scan the bushes, then stop. She smiles.

LEX'S POV - hidden in the brush, a baby triceratops' eye peeks at Lex.

Lex pushes the fruit closer. The BABY TRICERATOPS comes out of the brush, squeaking as it goes. It nibbles the fruit. Lex rolls another.

BACK ON GRANT AND TIM - They look around. Timmy stops, mouth open, YELLS:

TIM Dr. Grant, Dr. Grant, look.

Grant turns, looks OFFSCREEN. He's astonished by when he sees.

HIS POV - a row of shrubs, which Lex seems to soar above. As a break in the shrubs, it's clear that she's riding the baby triceratops. Loving it.

LEX Whoa!

With a whoop, Grant and Timmy chase after Lex on her triceratops.

Lex rides through low brush, ducking down as she goes. Then beneath the tall trees as she enters the forest. She crosses a stream on a log bridge. Light showers down through the branches. The water shimmers. Lex in is paradise.

Behind her, Grant and Timmy shout for her to stop. She waves, kicks the triceratops like it's a horse and YELLS:

LEX Giddyup!

The trike takes off, in a rush. It trips over a fallen tree, downed by the storm. The trike takes a spill and Lex goes flying.

LEX Whoa!! Take is easy!

She passes over the trike's head, in the air, and SCREAMS as she flies:

LEX I can't swim!

She SPLASHES into the stream.

Timmy, first to arrive on the scene, dives in heroically. He comes up sheepish and muddy - and sees Lex standing in a foot of water.

The baby dinosaur rolls to a stop, mowing down a patch of saplings as she goes. It stands up, dizzy and out of breath.

Timmy wipes mud off himself. Grant helps the kids out of the water. The baby triceratops follows them. Grant yells to the baby trike.

GRANT Go home now. Home to Freda!

LEX Oh, let him stay. He likes me to ride him. He could carry me instead of you, Dr. Grant. Please, let him stay,

Grant shakes his head,

GRANT Go! Go away. Go! Get out of here!

The trike whimpers and watches the three of them walk on. Lex is heartbroken.

LEX Will I ever play with him again?

Grant looks across the field, abundantly beautiful in the early morning. He has to keep them going. He points across the field.

GRANT We gotta get to that motion detector. It's still a ways.

Lex looks behind her. In the distance, more hadrosaurs join the herd eating from the tall trees. Some cool off in a shallow lagoon. They drink, lowering their flat heads, meeting their own reflections in the still water. When they look up again, their heads swivel. At the water's edge, a baby hadrosaur ventures out, squeaks, and scrambles back while the adults watch indulgently.


Muldoon and his workers now follow the compys on foot. The compys trail off in different directions. Muldoon and his workers break apart to track the different groups.

A BEARDED WORKER follows his party of compys. He looks ahead and sees a small group stopped ahead. Their heads are bent to the ground.

A BALD WORKER has reached another cluster of compys. Kicking, he scatters them.

Muldoon's tracking leads him to the equipment graveyard where Nedry was lost. He sees his stolen red jeep. He rushes to it. On the passenger side still sits the rocket launcher. He opens the door to retrieve it. When he leans in, his eye catches the tilted side-view mirror. The image is of many compys bent over the ground. He comes around, YELLING.

MULDOON I found Nedry!

In the distance, the call is ECHOED.


BALD WORKER (OFF) Found him!


Hammond peeks in the door and sees Gennaro, heavily bandaged, dozing on the couch. Gennaro's eyes flutter and Hammond enters and smiles.

HAMMOND He, Donald. Glad you're awake. I hope you're not going to take this little mishap you had and hold it against my park. It would be terrible if the finishing funds were in any way held up.

Gennaro just grins and shakes his head. He's very high on morphine. He wants to speak but Hammond keeps talking. After each sentence, Gennaro enthusiastically agrees with a nod.

HAMMOND You really shouldn't have gotten out of the vehicle. The park is actually quite safe. A disenchanted worker sabotaged some equipment. Arnold, Muldoon, and Wu, all loyal employees, are righting damage as we speak.

GENNARO Oh good, 'cause I love the park! It's more than we ever dreamed! Those brachiosaurs are so big! And those Spitters - (he spits) - incredible! I only have one problem. Aren't we going to have pterodactyls? (he frowns, smacks his forehead) Oh, they'd fly away!

Gennaro looks off, watching the imaginary pterodactyls fly away. Hammond takes out a bag.

HAMMOND Take a look at these, Donald. Have you seen these? These are great.

Hammond dumps things out of the bag. They are souvenirs of the park.

HAMMOND Wind-up toys. Spitter umbrellas.

Gennaro is thrilled.

HAMMOND I got some great t-shirts. Dinosaur bingo, hey ...

Hammond leans closer.

HAMMOND Wu says he can make a foot high triceratops. We'll sell pets as living souvenirs. Bio-engineered to eat only food we sell, of course.

Gennaro can't take it. Great idea! He high-fives Hammond repeatedly.

Harding enters and gently taps Hammond on the shoulder.

HARDING You'll have to bear with him, Mr. Hammond. He's doped to infinity and back.


Sunlight pours through the windows. Ellie sits with her head in hands. She looks around and wanders the lab. Notices a drawer, slides it open.

X-rays. She shuffles through, finds some marked: FREDA.

Ellie snaps on a viewing light at her lab station. She studies the X- ray. She looks up in surprise. Studies it again.

The viewing light is snapped off. Ellie looks again. Wu stands there.

WU Who gave you permission -

Ellie attacks back.

ELLIE I'm here to investigate this park. And there's plenty you haven't told me.

WU That's absurd.

ELLIE These bones aren't fully formed.

WU You're qualified to interpret x-rays of living dinosaurs? I doubt it. It took me many months to learn.

Y I'll tell you something else, Freda isn't an adult, just a huge juvenile.

WU You're making a lot of assumptions here.

ELLIE Right. What the hell is going on, Wu?

They stare at each other in the bright sunlight.

HAMMOND (OFF) Growth hormones.

The two swing around. Hammond stands in the sharp shadows of the room.

WU She didn't have a right to explore my lab.

HAMMOND Let's not argue, Wu, we have a serious problem. (to Ellie) These animals don't last. There is a regularity, a predictability about when they die. It's always ... very young. We don't know why. Given time, I'm sure Wu will figure it out. It's just ...

WU Just some adjustment in the code is required.

HAMMOND But there are deadlines. The park opens next summer. And it requires full-grown specimens. So Wu uses growth hormones to achieve the desired size in a short amount of time. But they all keep dying and we don't know how to stop it.

Ellie and Wu stare at Hammond. He steps forward. The light is so hot behind him that his appearance is like an apparition.

HAMMOND I was going to tell you all this myself, Dr. Sattler, after Gennaro stopped breathing down my neck. That's why I wanted you and Dr. Grant here on my island - you have to help me keep the dinosaurs alive. Won't you please help me?


IN THE SKY, the sun momentarily burns through the clouds -


Ellie enters. On the couch, Gennaro snores lightly. In a chair nearby Harding sleeps, a roll of gauze grasped in his hands.

Ellie walks over to the large model of the park that Hammond revealed. She looks at the miniature dinosaurs that sit in different sectors of the park. She picks up the plastic Rex, examines it, drops it back in.

She brushes by Harding and studies Gennaro's pasty, sleeping face. Air blows in and out of his dry lips. She examines the gauze wrapped around his wounded leg. It seeps with blood.


Arnold works at his console. Hammond and Wu lean over his shoulder. Ellie bursts in, very agitated. Hammond looks up.

ELLIE Gennaro's losing a lot of blood. He needs transfusions. We gotta get a rescue helicopter. Arnold, what's with the phones?

ARNOLD Ah hell. I just can't find it.

He sips his coffee and stares bleary-eyed at the screen.

ELLIE Find what?

ARNOLD Nedry jammed all the communication lines. He inserted some command, a lockout into the program code. I can't find it, because I gave that restore command and it erased part of the program listings.

WU So? Just reset - shut the system down and you'll clear the memory. Everything will be in the normal wakeup mode.

ARNOLD Shut the system down?

WU And reset.

ARNOLD I've never done that before. And I'm reluctant to do it. Maybe it's true, all systems will come on, but maybe they won't.

ELLIE Look, there is a sick man here who needs medical attention or he'll die. Four people are out there, missing in your park. We need search teams. We have to have a phone or radio.

Arnold still hesitates.


ARNOLD Well, it's just that the safety systems don't function with the computer shut down and -

Ellie boils over.

ELLIE - turn the goddamn safety systems off! Can't you get it through your head that we have no choice?

Arnold looks at Hammond, who now stares out into the park. Without turning, Hammond nods his consent.


Arnold gets up and goes to the main panel. He opens the doors and uncovers the metal swing-latches over the safety switches. He pops them off, one after another.

ARNOLD You asked for it. And you got it.

He throws the master switch.

The control room goes black. All monitors go black. Arnold, Wu and Ellie stand in the dark.

ELLIE How long do we have to wait?

ARNOLD Thirty seconds.


Grant and kids walk through a clearing. Lex stops.

GRANT What is it?

LEX I hear something.

GRANT Come on.

Timmy looks around. The morning is still and peaceful. Branches are motionless. Only a little bird jumps from one branch to another.

LEX Hear it now?

TIMMY You're hearing things. Come on, we gotta get back and warn them about the boat.

Lex hesitates but doesn't want to be left behind. She runs between Grant and Timmy. Then they all hear it.

HONKING. It comes from the herd of duck bills behind them. First the honking of a single animal, then another animal joins in, then another and another, until the whole herd has taken up the honking cry.

TIMMY What's going on?

GRANT They're agitated.

The duckbills twist and turn. They hurry out of the water, circling the young ones to protect them.

With a ROAR, the T-Rex bursts from the trees, just a hundred yards away straight toward the hadrosaurs.

LEX I told you I heard something!

The earth SHAKES. A low rumble is heard and felt as the hadrosaurs begin to run in a parallel direction to the course of Grant and the kids.

GRANT Outta the way, kids! Run!

Grant grabs Lex, lifting her bodily off the ground, and carries her like a football. Timmy runs beside them.

Hadrosaurs run alongside of them. Grant hears the crashing of trees. He takes a glance over his shoulder.

GRANT'S POV - a flurry of flamingos takes flight and spooks the herd into changing direction. The hadrosaurs swerve and charge right into the path of Grant, Lex and Timmy. They all SCREAM.


The quiet black room. Hammond stands by the big window. His pensive presence affects all in the room.

Arnold looks at his illuminated watch.

ARNOLD Memory should be cleared by now.

He pushes the main switch back on. Nothing on.


Arnold pushes the switch off and then on again. Still nothing. He glances at Hammond's back. Sweat forms on his brow.

ELLIE What's wrong?

ARNOLD Oh hell! I have to turn the safety switches back on before I restart the power.

Arnold flips on three safeties, and covers them again with latch covers. Holding his breath, he turns on the main power switch.

First, there is the computer beep. Ellie jumps. Then relaxes. The lights come on. The screens hum. Hammond's shoulder twitches slightly.

ARNOLD Thank God!

The room is jubilant. Hugs and cheers. Ellie picks up a phone.

ELLIE Arnold! They're still not working.

ARNOLD No, it sounds dead but after a reset, all system modules have to be brought on line manually.

Arnold quickly goes back to work at his console. Hammond turns.

WU (to Hammond) Arnold's about to get the phones up.

Arnold pushes the chair back.

ARNOLD Okay, we're up again!

Ellie grabs the phone back up.

ELLIE No we're not. Phones still dead.

Arnold swings her way.

ARNOLD Can't be -

HAMMOND My God, look at this, Arnold.

Hammond points to the transparent map. A tight cluster of dots by the lagoon move in a coordinated way. Moving fast, in a kind of swirl.

ELLIE What's happening?

ARNOLD (tonelessly) The duckbills.

WU My good God.


ARNOLD It's the Rex ...

HAMMOND They've stampeded ...


Grant and kids run for their lives. Behind them the duckbills charge with surprising speed. Their enormous bodies charge in a tight group, kicking up dirt, rocks, whole trees as they thunder along.

CLOSE ON - a charging duckbill as he HONKS, eyes wild with fear.

A horrible ROAR of the T-Rex sends a duckbill infant squealing and struggling to stay out from underfoot.

CLOSE ON - A huge adult foot almost tramples the infant.

Frightened and confused the infant scampers even deeper into the maelstrom. The frenzied herd raises a great cloud of yellow dust.

GRANT AND LEX AND TIMMY run wildly. The stampede is very close behind Grant and the kid's faces are covered with sweat and dust.

Another deafening ROAR of the T-Rex.

Grant leads them toward a rocky outcrop with a stand of big conifers. The animals continue to close.

CLOSE ON - the running feet of the stampeding animals. The ground VIBRATES every time it is struck by the huge feet.

GRANT AND THE KIDS scramble onto the rocks. They frantically tuck in between big boulders as the the herd reaches them. Lex shields her dusty face with her hands as she wedges deeper between the rocks. Grant pushes her down deeper and looks up from between the rocks.

GRANT'S POV - the immense legs of the first hadrosaur to pass. Another slams its big tail against the rocks, leaving a splash of hot blood.

Stampeding legs send clods of dirt flying in the air. Above, even the birds are running. Disoriented, they fly frantically along.

GRANT AND THE KIDS are enveloped in dust. Just shadows of huge bodies with giant limbs. BELLOWS of pain as animals wheel and circle.

A boulder is dislodged and it rolls toward Timmy. He dives out of his rocky hiding place. The boulder continues on toward Grant and Lex. They dive after Timmy. The group buries itself anew in a group of thick roots tangled amidst smaller rocks. The boulder continues on, SMASHING the rocky enclave they have just left.

Grant and the kids huddle and watch the last under-bellies oscillate above them. The stampede goes past. They lie there, unable to move. They watch the herd trample on.

CLOSE ON - The Rex's foot as it crushes a motion sensor.

Lex SCREAMS. Grant and Timmy cover her mouth.

The T-Rex hunts down the herd. He targets his prey. A young hadrosaur.

As the hadrosaur gallops into the shadowy treeline, the Rex lunges fiercely. The Rex and its victim are enveloped in dust.

Grant holds Lex close. She watches the terrible cloud with a quiet horror. Timmy makes the first move to leave.

TIMMY Let's go. Now!

The herd's remainder gallops off into the safety of the deep jungle.

Grant, Lex and Timmy run in the opposite direction.


Hammond, Arnold, Wu, and Ellie watch the monitor as the dust slowly clears. Hadrosaurs scatter.

Now the Rex is calm and quiet. BACK TO CAMERA, he gnaws on something.

HAMMOND No! Oh no! He make a kill. He killed one of my animals! Where's Muldoon?

ARNOLD I'm sorry, Mr. Hammond.

HAMMOND My animals! My animals!

Muldoon enters, limping in. Hammond is very upset.

HAMMOND Where have you been? My Rex killed a hadrosaur. You should be out there, doing something.

MULDOON I just came to tell you - you're minus one computer expert.


The water rushes a few hundred yards away. Grant and the kids have finally rested enough. Grant nods to Timmy.

GRANT We'll walk by the river. That leads back to the Visitor's center.

LEX Not me. I'm not walking anymore.

TIMMY Come on Lex, I'll carry you.

LEX Nope. Too scared.

Timmy looks up at Grant. Grant kneels down by Lex. Lex embraces Grant.

GRANT You ready?

She wipes her tears.

LEX Can we go on the raft? Then we don't have to walk so close to the animals!

GRANT What raft?

Lex points to a low concrete maintenance building with bars. It is twenty yards away.

LEX Where I found Freda's baby.

Grant start to stand. He's thinking.

GRANT It's still mid-morning. I bet we have at least ten miles to go. If we take the raft along the river, we can make much faster progress.

TIMMY Let's do it.


Grant stumbles deep in the gloomy recesses of the building. He pushes past drums of herbicide, tree-pruning equipment, spare tires, coils of cyclone fencing, huge fertilizer bags, stacks of ceramic insulators, empty motor-oil cans, work-lights and cables.

GRANT Lex, I don't see any raft.

Timmy looks at Lex. Where is it? Lex doesn't know.

TIMMY Keep going.

Grant keeps pushing through bags of cement, lengths of copper pipe, piles of green mesh. Two plastic oars hang on the concrete wall.

GRANT Bullseye!

Timmy is relieved. Lex smiles.

LEX Told you!

Grant grabs them. Looks around, still -

GRANT No raft. Where did you see it, Lex?

LEX Actually, I never really saw one. Just assumed.

GRANT Assumed?

She nods. Grant and Timmy resume looking.

IN THE REAR OF THE BUILDING - Lex walks below a barred window. Slats of light fall on her back. She sees a dark closet door ajar. She brushes the handle. It swings opens and two bright orange life preservers fall on her, knocking her to the ground.

LEX SCREAMS, frantically pushing the life preservers off.

Grant's head pops up. Timmy runs to her side. She is wrestling irrationally with the life preservers. Timmy drops to the ground.

TIMMY Lex! Lex! You're okay, you're okay!

Lex is overcome with fear. Timmy grabs a preservers and puts it on.

TIMMY Look, Lex! Look!

She looks at him, realizes, and bursts out laughing. Timmy laughs with her. Grant joins them. He sits on a box and laughs.

GRANT I'm afraid there's no raft.

Grant gets up. He reaches for the hands of the kids. Timmy sees it - the box Grant sat on is labeled: RAFT STORAGE. Timmy smiles..


Grant pulls a cord.

With a LOUD HISS, the rubber begins to expand uncontrollably, jerking and jumping like a wild marionette. Then, with a whopping HISS-WHAP! it pops fully open on the deck: a large bright yellow rubber raft.

Timmy and Lex climb in, wearing the life preservers. Grant gets in and pushes off with his oars.

The small disturbance causes the cicadas to ROAR. The raft drifts out into the lagoon. Grant fixes his oars into the oarlocks.

Grant surveys the river.

GRANT Looks pretty calm.

THUMP. The raft stops moving. They are aground. Lex looks overboard. She reaches in about elbow deep.

Grant stands and puts the oars in the water. He pushes with all his might. There is a long scraping sound of the raft against the mud floor. But it moves. And the raft goes into deep enough water.

A general sigh of relief as they gently float downstream.


Grant energetically works the oars.

CLOSE ON - Lex lets her hand trail in the water.

LEX I'll row, Dr. Grant.


But he's sweating and takes a moment to rest. Lex looks down at her hand in the water. It still trails.

LEX Hey, we're still moving.

Grant looks into the water. She's right.

GRANT There's a current.

Grant lays back against the rubber gunwales, closes his eyes. The two kids look at him.

LEX You can't sleep.

GRANT (eyes closed) I'm not sleeping... yet.

LEX I'll do it!

Lex picks up the oars and begins.

TIMMY We gotta warn them about the boat.

Grant opens one eye and looks up at the sun in the sky. He sighs and takes up the oars again. He rows powerfully with the current.


Current picks up speed. The water begins to rush and ROAR.


White foam crashes on the raft and sprays the kids. They burst out laughing. Grant smiles at them, but there is concern in his eyes.


Now the raft is really racing. The kids hold on tightly as the raft is rocked. White water crashed over, drenching the kids. When Grant takes a moment to look, he is soaked by a huge wave.

The raft tosses right and left. Timmy holds the rubber grips. He's yanked to one side. He's knocked to the raft floor. Quickly gets his grip again. SHOUTS to Grant.

TIMMY Thought is looked calm?

GRANT Guess I was wrong.

Grant looks ahead. The river widens. The raft really starts to fly.

Lex, gripping very tightly, looks out. Water sprays her again and again. Her face is serious.

LEX I can't swim!

Grant grabs the raft's tie line and pulls it out of its rubber rings. He lashes it around Lex and Timmy. Then he ties it around one of the rubber grips.

GRANT Hold on real tight.

They go flying down the river. The ROAR deafens.

The raft lifts out of the water. And crashes down, rocking every way.

Jagged rocks appear. Grant uses his paddle as a club to push off the rocks and the rushing shoreline. The kids duck from sudden overhanging trees.

Grant looks ahead. He blanches.

HIS POV - the surging edge of a tumultuous waterfall.

They're almost there. At the huge waterfall, water rushes violently, heaving over the magnificent precipice.

Timmy tries to tighten Lex's vest but is thrown back down . He YELLS:

TIMMY Hold my hand. Hold my hand when we go.

The raft spins in the rushing water. Everyone is thrown around.

The rope holding the kids to the raft tautens. The oars are wrestled out of Grant's hands and go flying through the air, spilling over the edge.

At the last moment, Grant spots a tree branch arching over the cascade. With all his might, he stands and holds his balance long enough. to let his hands smash into the overhanging branch.

They stop right at the waterfall's edge.

Grant struggles mightily to hold onto the branch. But the water keeps rushing. His strength ebbs.

TIMMY Don't let go!

Grant's veins pop out in his arms. His hands start to slip off the wet tree bark. Lex watches his hands slowly lose their grip.

The rubber raft jumps and leaps below him. Water pours into the raft. Lex tries fruitlessly to let it out. Timmy holds down Grant's feet.

TIMMY You can do it!

GRANT I'm trying. I'm trying ... Ooooo!!! ....

His hands slipping, slipping ...

GRANT No!!!!!


CLOSE ON - The T-Rex, face down in the mud.


Arnold, Wu, Muldoon, and Ellie stare raptly at the monitor.

MULDOON Son-of-a-bitch. He's taking a nap. Hasn't been this well fed ... ever.

Hammond is above, in his throne. He calls down:

HAMMOND Could he drown in that position? That's a very valuable animal.

MULDOON I know it's a valuable animal.

Muldoon takes a step up toward Hammond's throne and the two argue quietly back and forth. In the foreground, Wu calls Arnold over.

WU What's that, John?

Wu points to the screen behind Arnold's head. In the upper right-hand corner, it blinks a yellow warning: AUX PWR LOW! Ellie regards it.

ELLIE You running on auxiliary power?

ARNOLD I'm not.

WU Looks like you are.

ARNOLD Can't be.

WU Print the system status log.

Arnold nods and rapidly strikes keys. In the corner, a printer whirs to life. Moments later, it spins out a single page. Arnold tears it off.

Ellie continues to stare at the screen. It now flashes red: AUX PWR FAIL! An alarm klaxon BLARES.

Hammond holds his ears against the noise. He stands up.

The room lights begin to FLASH. They're reflected in Hammond's eyes. Hammond ROARS above the chaos.

HAMMOND What the hell is going on?

Onscreen, numbers begin to count backward from ten. Hammond lurches. At zero, the lights go off, the monitors, even the computer. Just the alarms keep screaming.

HAMMOND You're ruining my ordered, precise park!

Arnold ignores him, keeps pressing buttons. Hammond rushes toward Arnold. Arnold looks over his shoulder in surprise. Hammond SCREAMS.

HAMMOND Fix my park, Arnold! Fix it!

Arnold crosses his hands in front of his face, blocking Hammond's attack. Hammond grabs Arnold's wrists and the two twirl to the ground. Breathing heavily, Hammond clutches his hand to his own chest.

Arnold stands up, brushes off. He puts himself together, looks at Hammond. He SHOUTS over the siren:

ARNOLD I know it's hard, I know it's hard, but I'm going to put it all back together for you - I promise. I will


Grant still clings to the overhanging branch, holding the raft from toppling over the crashing waterfall. Lex and Timmy hold onto his legs.

The ROAR of the water diminishes. And the flow subsides from a raging current to a rolling river. And then to a gentle stream. A trickle. Nothing.

Grant slowly relaxes, lets go. So do the children. Around the raft, the water level begins to drain. Gradually, Grant and the kids are left in the raft sitting in just a few puddles of water. Around them, various pumps and other equipment is exposed where it was once covered by rushing white water.

LEX The waterfall stopped.

TIMMY Waterfalls aren't supposed to stop.

GRANT I think they cut the power. Hey -

He points and the three of them look over the edge where the waterfall once poured. There's a shimmering rainbow and beyond that, in the mist is the visitor's center.

GRANT Well, there's our pot of gold. Let's go, kids.

They grab his hands and clamber out of the raft, running toward shore.


Muldoon pulls open the blinds and the hot sun filters in, so the room is alternate patches of bright and dark.

In a hot corner, Ellie squats over a prostate Hammond, mopping his brow with a cool cloth. He murmurs, only barely intelligible.

HAMMOND Told him, fix my park, fix my park.

Wu brings the printout to Arnold. The printout is a chronological rendering of control room events since the restart. It is clear they have been running on auxiliary power. Wu yells above the alarm:

WU You shut down as six thirty-four this morning, and when you started back up, it was with auxiliary power.

ARNOLD Jesus. The auxiliary generator fires up first and then that's used to start the main generator because it needs a heavy charge. The main generator has to be manually reset.

WU Outside? In the generator building?

Arnold nods. Muldoon points to a line in the printout:


MULDOON This doesn't mean the fences have been off since six-thirty, does it?

Arnold grabs the paper, looks at it, slams it down.

ARNOLD Backup power doesn't generate enough amperage to power the electrified fences, so they were automatically kept off. That's also why we had no phones or radio.

MULDOON All of the fences?


MULDOON Including the velociraptor mesh?

ARNOLD (disgusted, exhausted) Yes, yes, yes.

In the corner, Hammond lifts his head and Ellie gently helps him to a sitting position.

HAMMOND Do you mean those raptors could be loose?

ARNOLD I'm afraid so.

MULDOON No, no way. Last time, it took 'em two days to chew through that mesh. But give 'em enough time, they'll get out. We better get that power on now.

HAMMOND Regardless, check the pit. Make sure there' five of them there.


Muldoon and Arnold run across the lawn. Muldoon carries his rocket launcher at a ready position. In the distance, the alarm still SOUNDS, lights FLASH a continued warning.

They reach the maintenance building where the generator is housed. Its

familiar him has been replaced by its own alarms. The closer they approach, the louder and brighter these alarms are. Grey steam pours out of the vents of the building, obscuring everything.

ARNOLD What's that steam coming out of my generator room?

MULDOON Relax, it's just refrigerated air. There's a leaky cooling pipe. I fixed it a couple times before but the original installation was at too sharp an angle.

Arnold accepts this. He is about to enter when Muldoon instructs him.

MULDOON Just go and turn on your generator, then get right back to the control room.

Arnold lights a cigarette and disappears into the steam-shrouded door.


Muldoon inspects an extremely discouraging sight. The thick mesh that covered the pit has been chewed through and ripped open. With heavy gun in one hand, Muldoon shines his flashlight into the pit. It's empty.

Muldoon looks up.

MULDOON'S POV - the dense forest surrounding the Visitor's Center.

Muldoon examines the ground. He locates the raptor prints leading away

Muldoon breaks into a run.


Muldoon comes back to the generator room still running full-tilt. He kicks open the door. Steam pours out. Standing in the thick steam, Muldoon yells for Arnold. No answer. He steps in the doorway and shines his flashlight around.

MULDOON'S POV - Only the dark abstract shapes of rakes and coiled ropes and small machinery can be seen in the steam.

Muldoon yells again. No answer at all. Muldoon curses and leaves.

As soon as Muldoon is gone, there is movement. Even above the sirens, an animalistic breathing, grunting can be heard. Obscured by steam and flashing lights, a reptilian claw clutches a shadow. A pack of cigarettes falls to the ground, spilling out on the floor.


Muldoon enters and confronts Hammond, Ellie, and Wu,

MULDOON Raptors chewed their way out. All five are out there.

ELLIE Arnold's not with you?

Muldoon looks around grimly. He shakes his head.

MULDOON I was hoping he was back here already.

Hammond takes charge.

HAMMOND This is why my quarters were specially fortified. To assist in an emergency just like this one. Let's go. Muldoon, round up the workers. They'll go with us too.

Muldoon stares at Hammond, then drops it. They prepare to go.

ELLIE Wait. What about Arnold?


Grant and the kids come over the hill. Timmy sees the big fence and the Visitor's Center close behind.

TIMMY We're home!

Lex and Grant happily run down the hill.


Grant and the kids stand in the long shadows of the electric fence. This huge fence is much higher than what Timmy has had to climb. Grant turns to him apologetically.

GRANT Sorry, Tim. We gotta climb up.

TIM That's all right, Dr. Grant. You owe me one.


Wu stands at the open sliding gate of the perimeter fence surrounding Hammond's quarters.. Next to him is Ellie. Behind both of them, launcher at the ready, is Muldoon. Watching from the window above, Hammond waves. Ellie and Wu wear radio headsets.

MULDOON Okay Wu, I'll have you covered at every moment. But this shell carries quite a punch, so if you're too close, it'll take a piece of you. Ellie's on the headset with you. If another ones come at you, let her know. Then Ellie - you start jumping and yelling. The buggers are easily distracted. They'll come running and let Wu get that power on. Then both of you, get behind this fence as quick as possible.

Wu and Ellie nod seriously and test radio contact. We starts his way across the lawn, Muldoon limps behind with his launcher. Ellie stands ready at the open gate.

Wu takes slow steps. Muldoon follows. Wu is just five feet away from the door to the generator building.

CLOSE ON - Wu's tense face.

THE ATTACK is sudden and fierce. It comes from the brush. The raptor leaps onto Wu in an instant. Wu and the raptor roll on the ground. Wu struggles for his life. Muldoon can't get a safe shot. He SCREAM:

MULDOON Wu, get away. Give me room to shoot.

Ellie comes running away from the safety of the gate. She jumps up and down, waving her hands, and SCREAMS:

ELLIE Hey you cretaceous dromaeosaur, you can't catch me. Hey, come and get me, you flat-snouted Mongolian beast. Hey!

The Raptor is distracted by this. He lets Wu go for a moment, shaking him loose from his bloody jaws. Instantly, Wu rolls away. Muldoon fires the rocket launcher. With a SIZZLE, the missile fires. BOOM! Direct hit! The raptor is blown to tiny pieces.

Muldoon grabs Wu and pulls the injured man to safety.


In reply Wu gets to his feet, looks where the Raptor was.

WU Now, there's four.

Muldoon helps Wu back inside the fence. He waves for Ellie to come in and join them.

Ellie takes off toward the generator building. She YELLS:

ELLIE I'm going in. Muldoon, cover the door after I go in. Wu, guide me!

Muldoon yells for her to wait but stops when he realizes that this may be their best plan.

Ellie races like a gazelle across the open lawn. She's very fast and graceful. She ducks into the generator building.

Above it all, Hammond watches at the small viewing window.


The three are at the top of the fence now. Grant carefully lifts Lex above the barbed wire and she grabs onto the other side of the fence to begin the climb down. Grant grabs Tim and lifts him next. Tim's tense face is a river of sweat.


Ellie finishes the stairs and feels her way along the basement wall. Her face is lit by a flashing yellow light. She bangs her head on a pipe. She rubs her head.

ELLIE Damn, I banged my head.

WU (OVER RADIO) Oh that's good, that must be the water pipe. You're really close now, there's a cabinet just above your head. Reach up and open it. The handle turns to the left.

Ellie turns the handle. The cabinet opens.

WU (OVER RADIO) It's a large throw-switch. Pull it down, count to three, and push it back up. That's all there is to it.

Ellie throws it down. She counts:



Just a few feet from the bottom of the fence.




Grant and Timmy jump down. Lex is just behind. Her sneaker catches in the fence pattern. She pulls on it.


ELLIE Three!

She throws the large switch back.


She jumps off the fence. Her sneaker comes off, falls to the ground.

CAMERA PUSHES IN ON LEX - it celebrates her narrow escape.

Grant casually leans against the fence to help Lex with her shoe. NOTHING! STILL NO ELECTRIC FENCES!

The Visitor's Center is in sight. They all turn to each other. Elated.

LEX We did it!

TIM We made it!

Lex jumps up and down. Grant smiles, high-fives Timmy.


The siren and the flashing lights stop. The room lights go on. Ellie turns to go back upstairs. Her foot slips, she falls to the ground. She has slipped on a pool of blood. She jumps up, recoils.

It's Arnold. She squelches a SCREAM, covering her own mouth.

SMASH! Ellie SCREAMS as a raptor lunges at her. He jumps down from above the water pipe Ellie banged her head on.

Ellie turns and races toward a ventilation shaft. She dives into it. The raptor gets there a second late and smashes against the shaft wall.

Ellie pushes herself against the shaft wall and, using her legs to push against the wall, begins to climb up.

The raptor smashes against the shaft again and gets inside. Ellie scrambles up. The raptor snarls and spits but it is momentarily pinned.

Ellie continues her scramble up the shaft. At ground level, she slams her feet hard against a vent, popping it open. Scraping the wall and banging against pipes, she races toward the door.


Ellie runs full-tilt toward the fence surrounding Hammond's quarters. Wu, injured, lies within the safety of the fenced area. Muldoon stands with his rocket launcher just outside the fence waiting for Ellie. Ellie screams to him as she speeds across the lawn.

ELLIE Raptor!

The raptor EXPLODES through the door of the generator building after Ellie.

Muldoon fires at the raptor. Misses. No time to reload.

The raptor gains on Ellie. Muldoon ducks inside the fence's heavy gate. He slides the gate half-shut, waving Ellie on.

Ellie dives inside the safety of the fence, losing her headset as she goes. The gate is almost closed. The raptor lunges.

Muldoon slides shut the heavy gate, bashing the raptor's head with all his might. The raptor shudders, caught in the gate. Stunned, for a second, it doesn't move.

Ellie and Muldoon run to the building. They push open the steel-clad security door and dive inside. Wu limping, chases after them. With a curse, Muldoon pushes the door back open, waves for Wu.

ELLIE AND MULDOON'S POV - Wu runs frantically. The raptor jerks out of the gate, inside of the fence. He races after Wu.

WU Keep it open! I'm coming!

Wu runs faster. The raptor gains on him. Wu screams, runs spastically. Wu and the raptor are neck-and-neck, equally close to the open door.

ELLIE Come on, Wu! Come on! Run!

The raptor is inches from Wu. Both are closer and closer to the door.

ELLIE They're coming inside!

WU Help!

Wu and the raptor are at the door.

MULDOON No they're not, Ellie.

Muldoon slams the door shut on Wu and the raptor. Wu's screams are horrific.


Ellie drops to her knees, her chest heaving, pulls her headset off with a bleeding hand. Muldoon, affected, turns to her.

MULDOON I couldn't compromise everyone's safety.

Ellie nods, catches her breath.

ELLIE Why didn't the power go on?

MULDOON You just reset the power. Now the computer has to be booted.

Muldoon looks out the tiny barred window of the security door.

MULDOON'S POV - There is already almost no sign of Wu. The gate to the perimeter fence slides shut. The raptor looks up. He is trapped within the perimeter fence of Hammond's quarters.

CAMERA SLOWLY TILTS to the viewing window above. Hammond stares down.


Grant and kids walk through the open security doors. All is empty and quiet. They call out but there are no answers.

LEX Where did everybody go?

Grant thinks.

GRANT Probably your grandfather's quarters. Let's go.

A DISTANT BELLOW. Grant reconsiders.

GRANT Actually, stay here.

He corrals the kids into the half completed enclosure of the Gift Shop.

LEX No, I want to stay with you.

Grant looks around tensely.

GRANT No, keep an eye on things round here for me. I'll be back with the others.

TIMMY What about -

Grant looks at Timmy.

GRANT I'll radio the ship as soon as I find somebody. (beat) You're in charge now. Don't move from here ... unless you have to, ok?

Timmy nods. Lex is happy, sinks to the floor.

LEX Goody! I'm gonna rest.

She finds a box of wind-up dinosaur toys. She winds one. Sends it walking to Timmy.

TIMMY Tired! He carried you the whole way.

Grant slips off into the concealing shadows of the skeletal display of the T-rex and raptor in combat. He looks back above his own shoulder into the menacing jaws of the skeletal raptor. He shouts back.

GRANT Be right back.


It's a madhouse in the crowded baronial quarters of Hammond. Gennaro is singing at the top of his-lungs while Harding tries to restrain him. Scared Workers huddle together, many are injured. Hammond sits on the floor, in a meditative trance.

Ellie and Muldoon stare out the window.

THEIR POV - The raptor is jumping in the air. With every jump he comes closer to leaping onto the roof of their small building.

Muldoon regards his rocket launcher ruefully.

ELLIE Why don't you just nail that bastard?

MULDOON No more ammo. I requisitioned six charges but the bean-counter - (he thrusts a finger at Hammond) - cut it down to two.

Ellie looks up to the ceiling. There is a large glass skylight with crisscrossing iron bars casting an ominous shadow in the sun.


The ship continues along smooth sunlit sea. Land is in distant sight.


The cracked egg is nudged open. The cute scaly head of a six-inch baby raptor nuzzles its way out of the shell. It shakes off a few pieces of clinging shell and immediately begins to devour one of the remaining eggs.


CLOSE ON - The wind-up dinosaur skitters across the polished floor. It bands against the the wall again and again.

Timmy looks down at it and smiles at Lex.

LEX Any candy behind the counter?

TIMMY Hungry?

LEX Starved.

Timmy looks behind the counter. He sees boxes of goods. He moves a stack of umbrellas out of his way. Lex gets up and pulls one out.

TIMMY Nothing.

LEX Let's go to the kitchen.

She smiles and pops to her feet. Timmy's not sure.

TIMMY Dr. Grant said -

LEX - let's go. We'll come right back.

CLOSE ON - Timmy's torn face. He's hungry, too.

He makes the right decision.

TIMMY Nope. We're waiting here till Dr. Grant gets back. He'll help us get some -

Interrupted by A SOUND. A rhythmic, horrible BREATHING. Now some light and rapid STEPS. And a SNIFFING. It's definitely an animal.

Lex backs off in a hurry. She knocks the umbrella over. It skirts across the floor. It spins and opens by itself. Printed on it is the ferocious face of the Spitter, the sides of its bright poisonous gills spinning to a stop.

The breathing gets closer and closer. The children huddle together in a corner of the gift shop. They SCREAM.

It's A RAPTOR, lean and ferocious. More like a cyborg than a hunter, it studies the kids from just outside the gift shop entrance. His eyes flick back and forth between the two pieces of meat.

Timmy grabs the box of toy dinosaurs. He winds one up and sends it off across the hall. The raptor glances over at the moving toy. Timmy grabs another, whispers as he winds it.

TIMMY Start winding now!

Lex and Timmy wind toy after toy, send them across the hall. The raptor leaps, crushing one in its jaws. Others waddle by. The raptor dodges and darts, grabbing this one, smashing that one.

The kids go running out into the hall. They race down the Visitor Center corridor. Timmy pulls Lex behind him toward the restaurant.

LEX Where are we going?

TIM The kitchen!


With a huge leap, the raptor finally makes it to the roof of Hammond's quarters. He jumps lightly onto the skylight. Glass shatters over the assembled guests and workers below. Total commotion and SCREAMS.

The raptor immediately begins to gnaw at the iron bars that block the skylight. Below, they shake off shards of glass and huddle in the corners. Ellie turns to Muldoon.

ELLIE How long?

MULDOON Well, they seem to be getting faster all the time. I would say - fifteen minutes.

Ellie notices something out the window. It's Grant approaching the gate. She hammers on the glass.

Grant's hand reaches for the knob.

The raptor stops gnawing, its ears perked up.

Ellie screams and screams.

Grant notices some of Wu's remains inside the gate. He stops and looks up. At the window, Ellie waves her arms, warning him not to enter. Grant stops. He sees Wu's headset on the grass, reaches through the fence, grabs it, puts it on.

Ellie jumps up and gets her headset. She barks into it.

ELLIE There's a raptor on the roof of this building. Open that gate and you're a dead man.

Grant stares up at Ellie in the window. He waves. She presses her hand to the glass.

GRANT Ellie, I'm go glad -

ELLIE Shut up and listen. We have about fifteen minutes here. The computer has to be rebooted. That'll turn on the electric fences. Besides the raptor stuck in here with us, there are four more ...

Grant races back to the Visitor's Center as she continues to fill him in.


The kids hurtle through this huge, industrial kitchen. The kitchen is a maze of turns, from the hot lamp pickup area to the rows of stainless steel burners to the chopping blocks to the potwashing area. The kids dart and duck from one area to the next, taking shortcuts under tables, crawling behind counters, scattering pots and pans behind.

Relentlessly, with a casual speed, the raptor stalks them. It avoids their obstacles with a casual grace and when it cannot fit through their shortcuts, it just continues around.

Timmy pulls open the large silvered door of the freezer. Lex starts to hurry inside. Timmy grabs her.

TIMMY We'll freeze to death in there.

LEX He's going to eat us!

Timmy reaches into the freezer and grabs a pile of steaks. He tosses one toward the raptor. The raptor gobbles it in one bite. Timmy shoves Lex out of the way and begins to toss the steaks on the floor. One after the other, he tosses them, in a row, closer and closer to the open freezer.

The raptor mechanically gobbles the steaks, following their path. He continues right into the freezer to grab the last of Tim's bait.

Tim leaps and slams the heavy freezer door shut. Lex comes running and throws her small weight alongside of Timmy's.


The heave and the lock catches on the door. From inside, there is a strangled CRY and the door is slammed repeatedly. The metal panels of the door buckle but they do not break. The door hinges bend and curve but they do not give.

The kids collapse in relief on the kitchen floor. In just a moment, Timmy is back on his feet.

LEX What is it, Timmy?

TIMMY I just remembered something. Raptors are born in large litters. There's probably more coming. We gotta hide.

He grabs her hand and they run out of the back entrance of the kitchen. There's a stairway and they race up.


Grant, wearing his headset, calls for the kids and looks around the gift shop with concern. He sniffs the air and examines the crushed windup toys. He sees some animal scales on the floor. He hears a NOISE above and begins to run.


The kids hear this NOISE too and it's closer to them. They bust into -


The kids knock over trays of stones as they rush through this room.


Automated drills whir as Tim and Lex crash through, knocking equipment to the ground. The drills still whir on the ground.


The Hamachi-Hood sequencers explode in a heap of punch cards and magnetic tape as the kids race by.


The kids slide into this room. They race to its far corner, past incubators and display cases of chemicals. They look back and see -

KID'S POV - A raptor happily gorging itself on a table of eggs. He's been in this room, their place of refuge, the whole time.

CLOSE ON - The raptor's glistening eyes register the children.

He begins to stalk. The kids SCREAM. This time there is nowhere to go.

The raptor closes in on the kids. Timmy feebly stands in front of his younger sister.

CLOSE ON - The raptor licks its lips, lizard-like.

At the other end of the room, GRANT ENTERS quickly. He surveys the situation. Quickly, he grabs an egg off a table. He reaches into one of the chemical cabinets with POISON WARNINGS prominently displayed. He comes out with a syringe and a vial.

The raptor is almost on the kids. Grant coughs conspicuously. The raptor whirls, studies Grant. He looks back at the children.

Grant speaks into the headset.

GRANT (TO RADIO) Talk, Ellie, just keep talking.

He tosses the headset on the ground. Ellie's voice crackles out. The raptor studies it, transfixed.

Grant injects the egg, then gently rolls it on the ground. The raptor forgets the headset. He comes forward and sniffs the egg, then sucks it up, swallowing it whole.

The raptor turns back to the kids. He takes two steps toward them, tenses to pounce - and keels over. DEAD.

The kids race around the dead raptor to Grant. Grant grabs his headset as the three run out of the room. Grant addresses Timmy as they run.

GRANT Timmy, you know anything about computers?

TIMMY Well, I just got an XT at home. I told my Dad I wanted a 386.

GRANT Ok good, you're elected.


Grant and Tim and Lex study the quiet room. Grant speaks calmly into his headset.

GRANT (TO RADIO) Okay, we've reached the computer room. Who can tell Timmy how to reboot?

ELLIE (OVER RADIO) Ah, Alan, nobody here knows how to boot the computer. Please hurry, we've only got a couple minutes left.

GRANT Tim, you got to book the system. They reset the power and there are no phones. We gotta turn on the fences and we gotta stop that ship.

LEX Are they going to be ok?

GRANT If we can get help very soon.

TIMMY Sshh, you guys, I'm thinking.

He studies a grid on a large console. He reaches out and touches a part of the screen. There is a beep and a warning sign - INVALID ARGUMENT. PLEASE TRY AGAIN.


The raptor has chewed almost all the way through the bars. Panic below. In the middle of it all, Ellie is focused, listening on her headset.


Timmy tries something else. BEEP. Lex raises a hand. Grant stops her.

GRANT (TO RADIO) Ellie, we're working as fast as we can here.

Timmy tries a screen section. BEEP. Again. BEEP. Again. BEEP. BEEP.

Timmy shakes his head. In desperation he stabs at the keyboard below the touch screen. He punches the ESCAPE button.

The screen lights up a new message - SYSTEM RESET COMPLETED. ALL SYSTEMS NORMAL.


The raptor has just chewed through. He squeezes his body into the space as the bars ELECTRIFY. Spastically, the raptor jerks back and forth as the current flows through him. He can't get out.

Finally, with a WHIMPER, he stops struggling and slides through the space he created. With a THUMP, he drops to the floor below.

Ellie, Muldoon, Hammond and the workers look on in shock.


Grant cheers and hugs Timmy. Lex whoops.

ELLIE (ON RADIO) Ok, we're all right here for now. Thanks.

GRANT (TO RADIO) Don't mention it. It was Timmy.

ELLIE (ON RADIO) But there's still one more raptor. So be careful.

Timmy is pushing menus and submenus on the touchscreen now. COMMUNICATIONS - RADIO - VEHICULAR ... He gets the one he wants.

He indicates the radio-mike to Grant.

TIM I think this is the boat. They called it the Queen Anne or something.

Grant grabs the mike.

GRANT Queen Anne, do you read me? Queen Anne?

The radio crackles to life.

RADIO This is the Queen Anne B? I copy. What's up?

GRANT Report your position!

RADIO Ah, we're just about to dock here in Puntaremas. Who wants to know? Please identify yourself.

Tim punches the screen which displays FARRELL, FREDERICK D. (CAPT.) Grant reads it and nods. His voice is tough as nails.

GRANT Try this for identification, Captain Farrell. You are in possession of stolen biological materials. If you don't turn that boat around and return to Isla Nublar immediately with your contraband cargo, you will be found in violation of Section 509 of the Uniform Maritime Act, you will be subject to revocation of license, penalties in excess of fifty thousand dollars, and five years in jail. Do you copy?


GRANT Do you copy, Captain Farrell?

RADIO I copy. All ahead stern.

A blinking light on a map indicates that the ship is pulling away from the harbor. Grant nods to Timmy who terminates the radio contact.

TIMMY What's the Uniform Maritime Code?

GRANT Who the hell knows?

Grant and Timmy start to celebrate again when Lex interrupts.

LEX What good does that do? To have the ship turn around?

Grant turns to her seriously.

GRANT Well it gives us ten more hours. (to Timmy) Let's see if we can raise the Costa Rican Coast Guard on that thing.

The last raptor smashes into the control room through Hammond's viewing window. Glass goes flying. Grant and kids go running into the hallway.


With the raptor in hot pursuit, the kids and Grant come flying. Tim and Lex jump over the railing, leaping onto the skeletal display. Grant goes for the stairs, jumping down them three at a time.

The raptor goes after the kids, scrambling over the balcony onto the display. The kids scamper down the display, knocking paint cans and tools off the scaffolding as they go. The raptor is just one beat behind, and his snarling face is splashed with red paint as he chases.

The kids burrow into the rib cage of the Rex. They break off floating rubs and hurl them back at the raptor. The raptor is undeterred, closing the gap on the kids.

The kids are stuck at the end of the rib cage - it's closed off by the skeleton and they can't break through. They're imprisoned. The raptor is pushing through the rib cage, bones crackling as it goes.

Grant leaps up the scaffolding, grabs a beam, swings his weight onto it, and slams it into the T-Rex's neck. The neck shatters and the massive head of the T-Rex drops free.

It falls directly onto the last raptor, squashing him flat. Dead.

GRANT (grimly) And then there were none.


Muldoon leads his workers onto an army helicopter. Two workers carry Gennaro on a stretcher. Ellie boards with the kids on each side of her, holding her hands.

Grant and Hammond walk together, toward the helicopter.

HAMMOND Dr. Grant, don't abandon this beautiful place. I need a man just like you to help me get my park back on its feet again. And it will be on its feet again.

GRANT We have to leave now.

Hammond stops.

HAMMOND Oh you don't know. There are wonderful plans in the works, sites already purchased for Euro-Jurassic and Jurassic Japan.

Grant is unimpressed. He holds a hand out to Hammond. Hammond tries a new approach.

HAMMOND Don't you see I've exalted human potential here? You must see it. You must feel it. I called back a life form. Listen, Dr. Grant, don't go. Be a part of this. I'm inviting you to do just that - let the others go, if they want.

GRANT You interrupted natural law. There are regulations, rules that nature follows that make her knowable.

HAMMOND You mean there are rules that nature follows that create barriers to our knowledge.

GRANT Barriers? Like the seasons? The earth spinning, orbiting the sun? The entire solar system in interlocking motion. Our own beings in biological step with it all. Mr. Hammond, you've disrupted the pattern and look what it's done!

HAMMOND I know what it's done. I've made triceratops and gallimimus and a T-Rex. I've got a batch of iguanadons being born on Tuesday. What do you say to that?

GRANT Don't count on it. Now get in.

Grant jumps in the copter, holds out a hand to Hammond.

GRANT You created mutant forms that you further mutated to create amusement attractions. You made biological puppets with heartbeats and an early death sentence.

HAMMOND I created genetic miracles!

GRANT You created a park to generate a profit- making merchandising operation.

HAMMOND The merchandise is just a by-product. Souvenirs for people to reflect on the wonder. You fainted when you saw the brachiosaur. Alan, look, let's not argue. The problem is that my employees were not up to par with my dream. They failed me. The park, I promise you, is safe. It really is.

Grant grabs Hammond's arm, starts to tug.

GRANT You park is doomed. Now come with me.

HAMMOND It is not! It's blooming! In the throes of labor! You are one more more negative voice in a universe of negativity. You'll amount to nothing. You'll be a bone-brusher all your life. I pity you.

Hammond pulls his arm away and strides away from the helicopter just as the ROTORS START UP. Hammond's suit whips in the wind. Grant calls to him, reaching out his arm.

GRANT Come back, Mr. Hammond! It's over!

Hammond keeps walking. He disappears over a grassy knoll.

Grant's outstretched hand drops to his side when THE ATTACK comes.

With a huge bellow, the T-Rex comes charging at the helicopter. THE PILOT screams for all to board as he starts to lift off.

The Rex bites onto the copter skid as the copter tries to escape. The copter angles dangerously as the Rex holds on.

Ellie fires a fire-extinguisher into the furious face of the Rex and its jaws relax. The copter escapes and starts to climb high into the sky. The Rex paws after it, then drops down to four legs and gives the copter a final swipe with its tail.

The tail SWISHES through the air and CRACKS against the plexiglass windshield which fissures and pops. The pilot struggles to maintain altitude and manages to keep the craft in the air.

With a ROAR of its own, the copter breaks into the blue sky and soars. away, leaving an angry T-Rex alone. Unnoticed by the frustrated Rex, Hammond slips away and walks into the jungle.


SLOWLY PAN the exhausted faces of Muldoon and his workers, Lex and Timmy holding onto each other, and Grant huddles next to Ellie. He reaches out and puts an arm around her shoulder. She reaches up and pulls his arm close.

ELLIE They're so beautiful. They're condemned, aren't they? Even those embryo fragments had the same viral contamination.

GRANT I have a theory.

Ellie looks up in surprise. She give him a big smile.

ELLIE You have a theory?

Grant smiles back at her.

GRANT I think that they could never completely isolate the dinosaur DNA. There was always some microscopic mosquito contamination. But at the molecular level, that was enough. Every dinosaur received the same genetic massage, the encoding that every mosquito gets to terminate life after a season.

ELLIE So the very process itself was flawed.

She's sad. Grant hugs her. Over her shoulder he gives a parting glance to the island. A green jewel in a blue sea. Suddenly it is obliterated by clouds.

CAMERA PANS AWAY AND SWOOPS DOWN from the copter. IT CROSSES the sky. THE CAMERA DESCENDS to Isla Nublar, slowly reveling in its natural beauty and finally coming to earth in the midst of the verdant jungle.


Hammond slowly climbs a steep hill covered with creeping growth. He almost reaches the top when he slips. He falls to the soft ground and rolls. He tumbles helplessly, rolling and spinning down the sharp drop, finally coming to a complete stop in a shallow pool of water. Face down, his head splashes into the puddle. No movement. Just the sound of labored breath.

CAMERA PANS to Hammond's hand, half-submerged in water. CAMERA MOVES INTO EXTREME CLOSEUP as a mosquito lands on his hand.



The army copter circles lower and lower as it finds the Queen Anne B, slowly drifting across the moonlit water.
