Jurassic Park is one of the greatest films of all time, this is clear to anyone with a brain inside their skulls - it’s a shared common knowledge. Jurassic Park is the best. Another thing that is the best, and also related to Jurassic Park, is Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm. What a character, eh? What an actor.
And that very actor did a Reddit Ask Me Anything the other day, in which he deftly fielded questions from his many fans. It was to celebrate his role in the upcoming action film Hotel Artemis, but this being the internet, most questions were resolutely not about that film - instead, and as expected, someone immediately asked him a question about Jurassic Park.

And that question? This:
“What is your favorite line that you have ever uttered from one of your movies?”
And the answer? This:
“It’s tough to choose but off the top of my head - I think it’s my laugh in the helicopter scene in Jurassic Park.”
And that laugh? This:
Sure, it’s not technically a “line”, but it was probably in the script in some form or another - [laughs], most likely. It counts, basically.
It counts because it is the best thing that comes out of anyone’s mouth in the film. Of course, if we’re looking at the best actual line, then that’s Goldblum’s too:
“That is one big pile of shit.”
The timing couldn’t be more perfect:
Long live Goldblum, long live Malcolm, long live big piles of shit.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is out today and Hotel Artemis is out July 20.
