Hudson: Vasquez, have you ever been mistaken for a man?
Vasquez: No. Have you?


Newt: Can I dream?
Ripley: Yes, honey. I think we both can. Sleep tight.
Newt: Affirmative.

Newt: My mommy always said there were no monsters, no real ones. But there are.
Ripley: Yes. Yes, there are.
Newt: Why do they tell kids that?
Ripley: Because most of the time it's true.

Ripley: How long after we're declared overdue can we expect a rescue?
Hicks: ... 17 days.
Hudson: 17 days? Hey, I don't mean to rain on your parade but we're not gonna last seventeen hours! Those things are gonna come in here just like they did before! And they're-- they're gonna come in here--
Ripley: Hudson.
Hudson: --and they're gonna come in here and-- AND THEY'RE GONNA KILL US!!!
Ripley: HUDSON! This little girl survived longer than us with no weapons and no training. Right?
Hudson: Why don't you put her in charge?
Ripley: You'd better just start dealing with it, Hudson! Listen to me! Hudson! Just deal with it because we need you and I'm sick of your bullshit.

Ripley: How many drops is this for you, Lieutenant?
Gorman: 38. ...Simulated.
Vasquez: How many combat drops?
Gorman: Uh... 2, including this one.
Drake: Ah, shit.

Ripley: I dunno how you managed to stay alive, but you're one brave kid, Rebecca.
Newt: [whispers] Newt.
Ripley: What?
Newt: My name's Newt. Nobody calls me Rebecca, except my brother.

Ripley: I feel like kind of a fifth wheel around here. Is there anything I can do?
Apone: I dunno, is there anything you CAN do?

Ripley: It's very pretty Bishop, but what are we looking for?
Bishop: Right there. [indicates blue flashing from a vent at the power station] Emergency venting.
Hudson: That's beautiful, man. That just beats all.
Hicks: How long until it blows?
Bishop: Four hours, with a blast radius of 30 kilometers, equal to about 40 megatons.
Hicks: We've got problems.
Hudson: I can't believe this. I CAN'T ****ING BELIEVE THIS!
Hicks: Vasquez, close the shutters.
Ripley: Why can't we shut it down from here?
Bishop: I'm sorry, but the crash caused too much damage. An overload was inevitable at this point.
Hudson: Aw, man. And I was getting short. Four more weeks and out. Now I'm going to buy it on this rock! It ain't half-fair, man!
Vasquez: Hudson, give us a break!
Hudson: Four more weeks! Aw, man!
Ripley: Well, we need the other drop-ship from the Sulaco. I mean, there must be some way of bringing it down via remote.
Hudson: How? The transmitter was on the APC! It's wasted!
Ripley: Well, I don't care how, but we'd better think of something, we'd better think of a way now.
Hudson: Think of what? We're ****ED!
Hicks: Shut up! [Over Hudson's panicking] SHUT UP! What about the colony transmitters? The uplink tower at the other end? Why can't we use--
Bishop: No, the hard-wiring between here and there was damaged. We can't align the dish.
Ripley: Well, then somebody has got to go out there, take a portable terminal, and patch in manually.
Hudson: Oh, sure! With those things runnin' around? You can count me out!
Bishop: I'll go.
Hicks: Yeah, I guess we can just count you out of everything, Hudson.
Hudson: That's right, man. Hey, why don't you go, man?
Bishop: I'll go.
Ripley: What?
Bishop: I'll go. I'm the only one qualified to remote-pilot the ship anyway.
Hudson: Yeah, man. Bishop should go. Good idea!
Bishop: Believe me, I'd prefer not to. I may be synthetic, but I'm not stupid.

Ripley: Just tell me one thing, Burke. You're going out there to destroy them. Not to study. Not to bring back. But to wipe them out.
Burke: That's the plan. You have my word.
Ripley: Alright, I'm in.

Ripley: Lieutenant, what do those pulse-rifles fire?
Gorman: 10 millimeter explosive tip caseless. Standard light armor piercing rounds, why?
Ripley: Well, look where your team is. They're right under the primary heat exchangers.
Gorman: ... So?
Ripley: So... if they fire their weapons in there, won't they rupture the cooling system?
Burke: Whoa ho ho... yeah, she's absolutely right.
Gorman: [turns to Burke] So, so what?
Burke: Look, this whole station is basically a big fusion reactor, right? So she's talking about a thermonuclear explosion and adiós muchachos.
Gorman: Oh, great. Wonderful. SHIT! Look... Ah... Apone. Look, we can't have any firing in there. I, uh... I want you to collect magazines from everybody.
Hudson: Is he ****ing crazy!?
Frost: What the hell are we supposed to use, man? Harsh language?

Ripley: These people are here to protect you. They're soldiers.
Newt: It won't make any difference.

Ripley: You never said anything about an android being on board. Why not?
Burke: [looks bewildered] It never... never occurred to me. It's just common practice, we always have a synthetic on board.
Bishop: I prefer the term 'Artificial Person' myself.

Van Leuwin: Thank you, Officer Ripley. That will be all--
Ripley: God damn it, that's not all! Because if one of those things gets down here then that WILL be all! And all this, this bullshit that you think is so important, you can just kiss all that goodbye!

Vasquez: All right, we got seven canisters of CN-20. I say we roll them in there and nerve gas the whole ****ing nest.
Hicks: That's worth a try, but we don't know if it's gonna affect them.
Hudson: Let's just butt out and call it even, man! What are we even talking about this for?
Ripley: I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
Hudson: ****in' A!
Burke: Hold on a second. This installation has a substantial dollar value attached to it.
Ripley: They can bill me.
Burke: Okay. This is an emotional moment for all of us, I know that. But let's not make snap judgments, please. This is clearly an important species we're dealing with and I don't think you or I or anybody has the right to arbitrarily exterminate them.
Ripley: Wrong!
Vasquez: Yeah, watch us.
Hudson: Maybe you haven't been keeping up on current events, but we just got our asses kicked, pal!
Burke: Look, I'm not blind to what's going on, but I cannot authorize that kind of action. I'm sorry.
Ripley: Well, I believe Corporal Hicks has authority here.
Burke: Corporal Hicks?
Ripley: This operation is under military jurisdiction, and Hicks is next in chain of command. Am I right, Corporal?
Hicks: Yeah... yeah, that's right.
Burke: Yeah... look, Ripley, this is a multi-million dollar installation! He can't make that kind of decision, he's just a grunt! Ah, no offense.
Hicks: None taken. Ferro, do you copy?
Ferro: Standing by.
Hicks: Prep for dust off. We're going to need immediate evac.
Ferro: Roger. We're on our way.
Hicks: Alright. We take off, nuke the site from orbit.

Vasquez: Hey, mira- who's Snow White?
Ferro: She's supposed to be some kind of consultant. Apparently she saw an alien once.
Hudson: Whoopee ****in' doo, I'm impressed.
