I repeat, this is not a drill. This is the apocalypse. Please exit the hospital in an orderly fashion. Thank you.
—Hospital P. A., Dogma (1999)
These obscenities that man has created—the corruption, the pollution—all these must
be annihilated. Nature will reclaim its dominion, the Earth will breathe again; but first
must come the apocalypse.
—Kanoe, X (1996)
I don’t have a future. Nobody has a future. The party’s over. Take a look around you man, it’s all breaking up. Are you not familiar with the book of Revelations of St. John, the final book of the Bible prophesying the apocalypse? —Johnny, Naked (1993)
Today we face the monsters that are at our door and bring the fight to them! Today, we
are canceling the apocalypse!
—Stacker Pentecost, Pacific Rim (2013)
I know it’s really hard to meet guys right now, with the apocalypse and stuff.
—Nora, Warm Bodies (2013)
The end. The end of life as we know it. We didn’t see it coming, that’s for sure. I mean, who plans for an apocalypse? But you know the really funny thing? It wasn’t something big and horrible that did us in. It wasn’t nuclear war or a deadly virus or a comet crashing into the planet. It wasn’t over-‐population or global warming. I wish it was. You know, something… lofty and magnificent. Something worthy of exterminating most of the human race. No. In the end it was none of those things. We simply ran out of gas. —Darwin, Tooth and Nail (2007)
