Dialogue Excerpts from Sci Fi

The Great Quotes from Sci Fi (below) also received several dialogue exchanges, so I'm giving them their own post.

Hudson (a man): "Hey Vasquez, have you ever been mistaken for a man?"
Vasquez (a female): "No. Have you?"

Leia (to Han, who's about to be put in carbon freeze): I love you.
Han: I know.

Riddick: "Remember that favorite game of yours?"
Kyra: "Who's the Better Killer?"
Riddick: "Let's play."

Riddick: "You made three mistakes. First, you took the job. Second, you came light. A four man crew for me? F***ng insulting. But the worst mistake you made..."
"...empty gun rack."

"A countdown... wait, a countdown to what David?"
"It's like in chess: First, you strategically position your pieces and when the timing is right you strike. They're using this signal to synchronize their efforts and in 5 hours the countdown will be over."
"And then what?"

Will Smith (Steven): "I ain't heard no fat lady!"
Jeff Goldblum (David): "Forget the fat lady. You're obsessed with fat lady. Just get us out of here!"

Bill Pullman (President): "I don't understand, where does all this come from? How do you get funding for something like this?"
Judd Hirsch (Julius Levinson): "You don't actually think they spend $20,000.00 on a hammer, $30,000.00 on a toilet seat do you?"

"You married?"

"Is he really that dangerous?"
"Only around humans."

"I know the presidents' chief scientific advisor, we were at MIT together. And, in a situation like this, you-you really don't wanna take the advice from a man who got a C minus in astrophysics. The presidents' advisors are...wrong. I'm right."

"Have you ever heard of Evel Knievel?"
"No, I never saw Star Wars."

"More color commentary from the space janitor."
"The correct term is mechanical systems engineer."

"How do you propose that I explain to Houston that two of my crew went blind drinking moonshine vodka?"
"Very carefully?"

"Whoa! You sure do get some high arc in this low gravity."
"You watching this, AMEE? We're taking the first p*** on Mars."

"Hypoxia? Dizzy. Skin'll tingle. Vision narrows. Then anoxia. Shock, convulsions, acidosis."
"Gonna hurt?"

"Aren't you gonna say anything?"
"I shoulda kissed you."
"Yeah, you shoulda kissed me."

"What tribe are you from?"
"The US Air Force."


  1. Now I want to go watch PLANET OF THE APES again!

    I also loved the "Who's your daddy?" line from INDEPENDENCE DAY. Talk about a fresh take on a cliched line!

  2. Hmm, don't remember that Independence Day moment, Heather. Refresh my memory. :)

  3. very nice. love your picture by the way.

  4. Oh, there's a ton from Idependance Day, but it seems the one that's stuck with me, is the countdown. In the book, it really points to something ominous.

    And simply love the "dinosaur eats man, woman inheritants the earth" quote from Jurassic Park

  5. Why, thank you, Edward. *blushes* Thanks for stopping by Spacefreighters.

    Dawn, I loved that "dinosaur eats man" line from Jurassic Park, too! LOL
