Jurassic World: Health and Safety Meeting
Brett Simmonds (Deputy Director of Park Security)
Jane Wren (Head of Health and Safety)
Brett Simmonds: “So Jane, I see from the agenda that this is the third time you’ve brought up the issues of having big dangerous dinosaurs loose in a park. Really what’s your justification? This isn’t a park, its a world!”
Jane Wren: “John, Let’s not beat about the bush here. This is just another Jurassic Park and we know how the original went. How you’ve managed to gain access to any country, let alone the same one, to build another park is beyond me and I have to say that Marshall from finance agrees”.
BS: “But Jane, dear Jane surely you realise that every possibility has been considered with care at the Christmas office party and simply nothing can go wrong”.
JW: “Well the disastrous failure of the original park, even before it opened and subsequent attempts to profit from it make me question how we can even consider this a profitable enterprise?”
BS: “Let’s make a deal. You can have the day off when the park, sorry World, opens if you’ll overlook this list of issues [unfurls long list that tumbles across the floor] and if this one goes wrong lets do something safer…”
“Let’s open a park filled with life-like androids who are designed to fulfill every persons desires…”
