At the beginning of the film Jurassic Park, the film's protagonist Dr. Alan Grant gets furious when a young boy remarks that a Velociraptor skeleton looks "like a six-foot Turkey," forcing the child to imagine himself being eaten by a Velociraptor. "He doesn't bother to bite your jugular like a lion ... He slashes at you ... across the belly, spilling your intestines. The point is... you are alive when they start to eat you." The film never let's the boy respond. I decided to let the other parties involved in the scene give their alternate perspectives from the first scene of Jurassic Park.
1. Why Did That Paleontologist Have To Scare the s**t Out Of Me?
Seriously, all I did was kick a little dirt and make a funny joke about a turkey...Â I mean, what the hell do I know? I'm just a kid! I don't know anything about vemosomaptors or whatever! It looked like a turkey to me! So what? Does that mean that guy had to threaten me with a six-inch claw and talk about me being eaten alive? No, it doesn't. It means maybe he could have said, like, "Show some respect, these things are scary," or "Apologize right now or I'll scare the s**t out of you." I would have apologized right then! I didn't want him to scare the s**t out of me!
I mean, hell, I wasn't trying to call him out or something! Dinosaurs are cool! Of
