A strange lifeform consumes everything in its path as it grows and grows.

Lieutenant Dave: Just because some kid smacks into your wife on the turnpike doesn't make it a crime to be 17 years old.
[last lines]
Lieutenant Dave: At least we've got it stopped.
Steve Andrews: Yeah, as long as the Arctic stays cold.
Jane Martin: [hysterical after they just escaped the Blob] Steve... our parents think we're in bed, at home, safe, asleep, sound.
Steve Andrews: [trying to get everybody's attention] Listen, now listen to me, everybody, this town is in danger. Now, several people have been killed already! Now we - we had to make this noise so you would listen to us, so we could warn you!
Man: If we're in trouble, where're the police?
Sgt. Jim Bert: [sees Steve] You, boy, this time you really hanged yourself.
Steve Andrews: Now, look, Sarge. Just give me a chance to talk to them, that's all.
Sgt. Jim Bert: I don't know what kind of stunt it is you're pulling here, but whatever it is, it's going to stop right now!
Officer Ritchie: Here comes Dave!
Lieutenant Dave: What's going on here, Jim? Steve!
Steve Andrews: Dave, make them listen to me. There IS a monster! We saw it again at dad's store, and it's bigger now!
Sgt. Jim Bert: Your story's gotten bigger now, kid.
Steve Andrews: Dave, look at me! Do I look like somebody's playing a practical joke? Am I laughing, or am I scared stiff?
Lieutenant Dave: He's telling the truth.
Sgt. Jim Bert: [comes out of the market where Steve told everyone the Blob was] There's nobody in here but us monsters...
Steve Andrews: [a screaming crowd comes running around the corner] Dave! It's at the theater!
Lieutenant Dave: [runs into the theater with a shotgun; after firing three shots, retreats as Jim prepares to go in] Don't go in, Jim! This won't do any good! It's the most horrible thing I've ever seen in my life. Come on, we've got to clear this area!
[after throwing acid on the Blob]
Kate, the nurse: Doctor, nothing will stop it!
Elizabeth Martin: [the air raid siren blows] Henry, Danny's gone!
Henry Martin: [trying to get an answer on the phone] What?
Elizabeth Martin: And Jane too!
[Henry hangs up and meets her at the stairs]
Henry Martin: Well now calm down...
Elizabeth Martin: I looked in both their rooms, they're both gone!
Henry Martin: Are you sure?
Elizabeth Martin: Yes! Yes!
Danny Martin: Well maybe they're down here.
[turns on the living room lights, Danny's asleep on the couch]
Danny Martin: Here's Danny!
Elizabeth Martin: [running behind him] Danny! What're you doing here?
Danny Martin: I'm... guarding you.
Elizabeth Martin: Guarding us? Guarding us against what, darling?
Danny Martin: I don't know.
Henry Martin: Is everyone in this whole town gone crazy? Danny, do you know where Jane is?
Danny Martin: She's just gone.
Henry Martin: [stands up] I'm going to get to the bottom of this at once.
Tony Gressette: All right, Steve. You made us waste our 80 cents, now what gives?
[all the teenagers demand to know what's going on]
Steve Andrews: Would you believe me if I told you there was something inside of that rock we found tonight? Something that could wipe out this whole town?
Tony Gressette: [all the teenagers laugh] Hey, knock it off! Go ahead, Steve.
Steve Andrews: I saw this thing kill Doc Hallen tonight.
[all the kids are shocked]
Steve Andrews: That's right.
Tony Gressette: What is it?
Steve Andrews: I don't know, but one thing's for certain, if it can kill Doctor Hallen, it can kill somebody else.
Al: Well what do you want us to do, Steve?
Steve Andrews: All right, we're going to find this thing, and we're going to make people believe us.
Steve Andrews: Alright, we tried to do it the right way, now we're going to wake this town up ourselves.
Tony Gressette: Yeah, but how?
Al: Yeah, how?
Steve Andrews: Any way we can think of.
Steve Andrews: How do you get people to protect themselves from something they don't believe in?
Steve Andrews: Dad, it isn't vandalism! Doctor Hallen is dead, and he was killed by some sort of a monster! Now, I know because I saw it, Dad.
[On the radio to Washington]
Lieutenant Dave: I think you should send us the biggest transport plane you have, and take this thing to the Arctic or somewhere and drop it where it will never thaw.
[hears dog barking]
Jane Martin: I bet there is a house somewhere.
'Mooch' Miller: [laughs] It doesn't sound like a house. It sounds like a dog.
Dr. Meddows: Let Me tell you a story. Dinosaurs ruled our planet for millions of years and yet they died out almost over night. Why? The evidence suggests that a meteor fell to Earth carrying an alien bacteria.
Meg Penny: Plague? Is that what this whole thing is about?
Dr. Meddows: Prevention!
Brian Flagg: And you think that this meteor brought some kind of killer germ?
Dr. Meddows: It's something I've expected and prepared for all my life!
Brian Flagg: Your meteor brought something all right but if it's a germ, it's the biggest son of a bitch you've ever seen!
Mrs. Porter: [to Dave as she's about to clean up the doctor's office] Can't I just dust around the fingerprints?
Henry Martin: Well then, young lady, do you mind telling me where you've been spending the evening?
Jane Martin: Daddy, it's all right.
Henry Martin: [sarcastically] Oh, yes, everything's fine, I always stop by the police station in the middle of the night to pick up my daughter. Don't you realize that by morning this will be all over town?
Jane Martin: Well we were just trying to warn people.
Henry Martin: After all, I am the principal at the high school.
[to Steve]
Henry Martin: Young man, this is the last time you're going to take my daughter out!
Jane Martin: Steve didn't do anything wrong!
[last lines]
Old Woman in Tent: When Reverend?
Reverend Meeker: [Looks up to reveal his right eye is now a mass of burnt tissue] Maam?
Old Woman in Tent: The day of reckoning. How far off?
Reverend Meeker: Soon Maam... Soon
[Holds up a jar in his badly burnt right hand]
Reverend Meeker: The Lord will give me a sign.
[Peers inside and we see a piece of the blob moving around inside]
Meg Penny: Nobody believes me about what happened tonight.
Brian Flagg: What did happen?
Meg Penny: You were there, you saw!
Brian Flagg: All I saw was an old man with a funky hand, that's all I saw.
Meg Penny: The thing on that man's hand killed him and then it killed Paul, and whatever it is, it's getting bigger!
Brian Flagg: So you told the cops? Do you mind if I ask you a personal question? I know you're the homecoming queen type and all but are you strung out on something or what?
Meg Penny: [laughs] You're just the same.
Brian Flagg: What are you talking about?
Meg Penny: You act like you're different, you put on this big show, but you're just like everybody else in this town, you're full of SHIT, Flagg!
Brian Flagg: Are you coming?
Meg Penny: Brian, I have to go back, my family's there, people that I care about.
Brian Flagg: Well I'm going, and if you're smart you'll come with me.
Meg Penny: Then go. Take care of yourself. That's the only thing you're really good at, isn't it?
Can Man: The sky, it fell from the sky!
Paul Taylor: What's he saying?
Meg Penny: He's in shock, let's just go!
Kevin Penny: [Pokes his head around his front door] Who are you?
Paul Taylor: I'm Paul is you're sister in?
Kevin Penny: Just a second.
Brian Flagg: You don't give up, do you?
Meg Penny: I need your help.
Meg Penny: Daddy, I'd like you to meet my friend Paul.
[notices Paul who bought condoms in his store earlier]
Mr. Penny: Ribbed.
Eddie Beckner: [near tears] I'll be good I swear... I'll never see a movie ever again.
Meg Penny: It's gonna be okay.
Lieutenant Dave: Mrs. Porter, did you hear any gunshots tonight?
Mrs. Porter: I sure did, tonight and every other night. The people downstairs have them old movies on their televisions. There's always some shooting or screaming.
Sheriff Herb Geller: Flag's a punk, but he's no killer.
Deputy Bill Briggs: I think it's a mistake.
Tony Gressette: [Steve stops outside the phone booth to call the police] Go on!
Steve Andrews: You talk to them, Tony.
Tony Gressette: Me? Why me?
Steve Andrews: I'm supposed to be home asleep, if they think I'm running around loose, they'll never believe us.
Al: Yeah yeah, here's a dime. Come on, come on!
Tony Gressette: What'll I say?
Steve Andrews: Ask for Dave, and listen Tony, you give it to him straight. Tell him to get out to this store quick! You tell him to bring every piece of hardware he can find in the police station!
Kevin Penny: [on seeing the blob shatter and explode from the exposure to the canister of liquid nitrogen] WOOAAHHH
[runs up and hugs his sister]
Meg Penny: The front door is locked.
Brian Flagg: [picks up a brick] That's okay, I got a key.
Meg Penny: Sir, excuse me, but I think my little brother's over at the movie theatre on Main Street.
Soldier Outside Town Hall: We're doing by sector. We'll be there soon.
Meg Penny: Right, but you don't understand...
Pharmacist: We'll handle it okay, now get back in line.
Pharmacist: I don't see you handling much of anything... are you on a coffee break?
Soldier Outside Town Hall: [Now irritated] Look mister
Pharmacist: [Snaps] Don't you look mister me... I'm a tax payer... I pay your salary... now what are you going to do about finding my son?
Soldier Outside Town Hall: [as her father argues with the soldier... Meg takes off into the crowd] I understand you're upset, Sir, but if you just get back in line. We have the situation under control.
Pharmacist: [Grudgingly] I know.
Paul Taylor: We've had a car accident, this guy needs to see a doctor.
Meg Penny: He has something on his hand, some kind of acid, or something.
Nurse: Does he have Blue Cross?
Meg Penny: I don't know.
Nurse: Medical insurance of any kind?
Paul Taylor: Look, we don't even know who the guy is!
Danny Martin: [catches Jane sneaking down the stairs] Hey! Where're you going?
Jane Martin: Shhh, come here, Danny, shhhhhh.
Danny Martin: Where are you going?
Jane Martin: I've got something very important to do, Danny, but it's got to be a secret.
Danny Martin: Will you be back pretty soon?
Jane Martin: Well I don't know.
Danny Martin: Aren't you afraid to go out by yourself?
Jane Martin: You're right, I guess I am, Danny.
Danny Martin: I'm not afraid, I'll guard you.
Jane Martin: Oh no, Danny, you've got a bigger job to do, I need you to guard Mommy and Daddy for me.
Danny Martin: Oh they don't need guarding.
Deputy Bill Briggs: [as the blob besieges the town hall] Bring some more!
[Fire extinguishers]
Brian Flagg: In the meantime, we're your prisoners?
Dr. Meddows: Not at all, you're my patients.
Steve Andrews: You sure you want to go with me?
Jane Martin: Yes.
Steve Andrews: I wouldn't give much for our chances, us running around in the middle of the night, looking for something that if we found it, it might kill us.
Meg Penny: [Indicating to a pipe whilst chest deep in sewer water] Come on... that's our only way out of here
[Moving past some sewer rats]
Meg Penny: Watch out for the rat.
Kevin Penny: [Confused] What rat?
[They look round to see the rats being consumed by the blob as it heads for them. Meg screams]
Kevin Penny: RUN!
Paul Taylor: Flagg! What'd you do to him?
Brian Flagg: Hey I'm not the one who bounced him off my car!
Paul Taylor: YEAH RIGHT! You ran him into the middle of the road!
Meg Penny: Stop it! Let's get him to a doctor!
Brian Flagg: [to the people of Aborville] It's a lie. All of it.
[first lines]
Announcer: That's a first down. Ball at a thirty five-yard line.
Jennings: The organism is growing at a geometric rate. By all accounts, it's at least a thousand times its original mass.
White Suit #1: This will put U.S. defense years ahead of the Russians.
Meg Penny: [to Deputy Bill Briggs] It can't stand the cold.
Moss Woodley: [as snowflakes fall to the ground from the blob's demise] Hey man I told you we'd have snow... gotta have a little faith... I hope I'm covered for this sort of thing.
[Indicating to the blob's shattered frozen remains]
Moss Woodley: Hey bring the dump truck... we've gotta have this thing moved by dawn.
Dr. T. Hallen: [on the phone] Kate? It's Dr. Hallen, I'm still at the office... something's come up. I need you back here right away. No, you've got to come back, Kate. There's a man here with some sort of a parasite on his arm, assimilating his flesh at a frightening speed. I may have to get ahead of it and amputate. No... I don't know what it is or where it came from.
Brian Flagg: It's locked.
Meg Penny: So what? Brian, what is with you? You're acting like a complete jerk.
Brian Flagg: I have a problem with authority figures.
Meg Penny: What are you doing?
Brian Flagg: I think we ought to get out of here. We ought to take my bike and blow this town. It's getting a little thick around here. Don't you think?
Meg Penny: That's crazy. These people are here to help us.
Brian Flagg: Come on Meg, we don't even know who they are. NASA, CIA, Royal Canadian Mounties, all I know is I saw a bunch of unmarked trucks back there, I think the whole thing stinks.
Mrs. Penny: Kevin, don't eat with your face.
Kevin Penny: Mom, we're in a hurry so we can go bowling with Anthony.
Eddie Beckner: And then to the movies.
Mrs. Penny: What movie?
Eddie Beckner: Garden Tool Massacre, it's your basic slice and dice.
Mrs. Penny: Your basic what?
Eddie Beckner: Well this guy in a hockey mask, he chops up a few teenagers, but don't worry, there's no sex or anything bad.
Mrs. Penny: They won't let you kids into a movie like that.
Eddie Beckner: No problem, my brother's an usher.
Mrs. Penny: No. Absolutely not.
Col. Hargis: Let's scrag that son-of-a-bitch!
[the soldiers fire their weapons into the manhole]
[Drops the explosive into the manhole and it detonates]
Col. Hargis: Chew on that, slimeball!
[after a pause, the ground all around them begins to tremor violently]
Col. Hargis: What's happening?
Brian Flagg: I think... you pissed it off!
Meg Penny: [Meg rescues Kevin from the sewers but then can't get out herself. Kevin tries to save her anyway, to no avail] Run, Kevin! Go to Town Hall!
Kevin Penny: No, but Meg...
[then, before he can respond]
Meg Penny: DO IT NOW!
Kevin Penny: [gets up, resignedly] I'll miss you, Meg.
[as he runs off, Meg dives back into the sewer and swims for it; sure enough, she finds an alternate way out]
Meg Penny: Brian! I need to talk to you. Brian?
Brian Flagg: What the hell are you doing here?
Meg Penny: Look, I came down to bail you out.
[holds out credit card]
Brian Flagg: Who do you think they are, Neiman Marcus? They don't take plastic.
Dr. Meddows: I want that organism alive.
White Suit #1: What about the civilians?
Dr. Meddows: They're expendable.
Mr. Andrews: Lieutenant, I'll have you know that Steve isn't in the habit of telling lies. If he says he's not mixed up in this vandalism thing, you can be sure it's the truth.
Sheriff Herb Geller: I feel like the one-legged man in an ass kicking contest.
Pharmacist: You want the ribbed or the regular?
Scott Jeske: Ribbed I guess.
[to Reverend Meeker]
Scott Jeske: They're not for me.
[outside supermarket]
Steve Andrews: [friends come running up to he and Jane] Where have you kids been? It's in there! It's in there! I wish I were kidding. It's in there!
Brian Flagg: [to Meg] I never thought I'd go out of my way to find a cop.
Jennings: Dr. Meadows, just for the record, I don't agree with any of this. Those people's lives are at stake.
Dr. Meddows: Don't you think I know that? This isn't one of you text-book exercises, Mr. Jennings. This is an experiment in biological warfare, or hadn't you noticed? That organism is potentially the greatest breakthrough in weapons research since man split the atom. What we do here will affect the balance of world power! Of course there are lives at stake - whole nations, in fact. And that's far more important than a handful of people in this small town. And that is my cross to bear, Mr. Jennings. Now carry out your orders.
Reverend Meeker: [Concluding his speech to his doomsday congregation] Consuming sinner and saint alike... who shall be lifted up to rapture when the judgment trumpet blows? None but the faithful brothers and sisters... None but the faithful.
Paul Taylor: Hey, get in the car.
Brian Flagg: What for?
Paul Taylor: There's going to be a lot of explaining to do and you're part of it, now are you gonna get in the car, or am I going to make you get in?
Brian Flagg: What's the matter, Taylor? You worried about a little insurance claim on daddy's car, huh? Maybe I will come along, just to make sure you don't try pinning this whole thing on me.
Man in crowd: [as the young folk return from the school with the CO2 fire extinguishers] Hey! Here come the kids back!
Brian Flagg: Listen to me, Briggs, think for a minute, do you suppose an army of guys in plastic suits show up every time a meteor falls?
Dr. Meddows: [about Brian] Shoot him, that's a direct order!
Brian Flagg: How do you think they got here so fast? How did they even know when to come?
Dr. Meddows: Shoot dammit shoot!
Brian Flagg: I'll tell ya how! That meteor is man-made! It's some kind of a germ warfare test they fucked up!
Steve Andrews: Dave! Doc Hallen's been killed!
Lieutenant Dave: Doc Hallen? What happened?
Steve Andrews: It's over at his place! You've gotta come now!
Lieutenant Dave: Now wait a minute, Steve. Tell us what happened.
Steve Andrews: I'm trying to tell you - now this thing has killed the Doc.
Sgt. Jim Bert: Well what was it? Out with it, kid!
Steve Andrews: Well it's kind of a - kind of a mass. It keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Lieutenant Dave: Come on, Steve, make sense.
Steve Andrews: I know, I know! Look, Dave, you gotta see this thing to believe what I'm telling you.
Sgt. Jim Bert: Maybe this thing you saw was a - monster?
Steve Andrews: Yeah, maybe it was. I don't know.
Lieutenant Dave: Hold on, Jim. Now what is this, Steve? A little while ago it was driving backwards, now it's monsters.
Jane Martin: He's not making it up, Dave, honest!
Steve Andrews: Dave, I'm not kidding you. I swear, come out to the Doc's. You can see it for yourself.
Sgt. Jim Bert: You're crazy if you go. Can't you see it's a gag?
Lieutenant Dave: He says Doc Hallen's dead, Jim. We've got to check it out.
