Awesome: Creature from the Black Lagoon

  • Capitan Lucas may not be the brightest bulb on the christmas tree but, he has his moments.
    Lucas: It is impossible. But I, Lucas, will do it.
    • "Cocky isn't he?"
  • There's also the scene in which the more Jerkass scientist Mark needs to be talked down. Lucas does so by holding a knife to his throat while sporting a very broad smile. Note that Lucas has been completely friendly and deferential up until this point: but once his authority as captain is questioned...
  • The Creature itself is pretty Bad Ass when he needs to be.
    • And the suit itself was a triumph of special effects for the time.
