The best line in the Henry screenplay is 'Fa, Ma, Pa', spoken by dolphins, Henry himself providing their voices. The dolphins have been taught to speak by marine biologist Scott, researching the creatures off the Florida coast, when he discovers that they are being used in a plan to blow up the President's yacht.
