Aquaman: My parents were from different worlds. And I was a product of the love that never should have been.
Atlanna: You could unite our worlds one day.
Aquaman: A son of the land, and a son of the seas.
Bar Patron: Your mother always knew you were special.
Mera: You are part of something deeper. You are the bridge between the land and sea. Take your rightful place, as king.
Mera: We're getting close now.
Aquaman: Oh yeah? Close to what? Dying of thirst? There's no way Atlantis were this far in land.
Aquaman: Check this place out! This is badass!
Mera: It's real!
Aquaman: Of course it's not working. It's been sitting here collecting dust since before the Sahara was a dessert.
Mera: Before the Sahara was a dessert?! Let's see. You do your best thinking when you're not thinking at all. Right now, hold still.
Aquaman: Hey, what are you doing?
Mera: We need water! I’m gonna close the source.
Aquaman: Show off... I could have just peed on it.
King Nereus: In this trident, resides the power of Atlantis. If you could seek my power, journey beyond the edge of the world to the hidden sea. In the wrong hands, it would bring destruction. But in hands of the true heir, it would unite all our kingdoms; above and below.
Aquaman: Hey! Wait!
Aquaman: Shouldn't we written it down first?
Mera: I memorized it. Didn't you?
Aquaman: Oh, yeah. Totally.
Mera: What did he just say?
Aquaman: Something, something trident.
Orm: The beast has awakened. The time has come for Atlantis to rise again.
Aquaman: Who the hell are you?
Aquaman: That was awesome!
Orm: The war is coming to the surface. You are not going to win this.
Mera: Billions will die. Unless you help us!
Aquaman: I'm no leader. I'm not a king.
Mera: Atlantis has always had a king. Now it needs something more.
Aquaman: But what could be greater than a king?
Mera: A hero...
