Carla: Walter, I’m sorry, but you can’t.
Walter: Yes. Yes, I think I can.
Carla: No, Walter, I mean you can’t. Shattering the wall between universes would rupture the fundamental constants of nature.
Walter: It’s a theory. We don’t know that to be true.
Carla: It’s a good theory.
Walter: It is why we have been lying to the military, telling them it’s impossible.
Carla: Walter, there has to be a line somewhere. There has to be a line we can’t cross.
Walter: I always considered you as a scientist, Doctor Warren…Despite your personal needs for religious claptrap. I see I was wrong.
Carla: “I am become death, Destroyer of worlds.”
Walter: Don’t you quote Oppenheimer to me!
Carla: Knowledge cannot be pursued without morality.
Walter: You sound like a pious sanctimonious southern preacher!
Carla: I may go to church every Sunday, Walter, but I also have three degrees in theoretical physics, and I am telling you you cannot do this. We both know the amount of energy required to create a portal will forever ruin both universes. For the sake of one life, you will destroy the world. Some things are not ours to tamper with. Some things are God’s.
Walter: My son is dying, Dr. Warren. I will not allow that to happen again. There’s only room for one god in this lab, and it’s not yours.
