Barry Guiler: Hello. Come here...Play with me!


Claude Lacombe: [to Roy] I envy you.

AirEast Pilot: Indianapolis Center, do you have any traffic for AirEast 31?
Air Traffic Controller: AirEast 31, negative. The only traffic I have is a TWA L-1011 in your six o'clock position. Range - fifteen miles. There's an Allegheny DC-9 in your twelve o'clock position, fifty miles. Stand by one. I'll take a look at Broadband.
AirEast Pilot: AirEast 31 has traffic two o'clock, slightly above and descending.
Air Traffic Controller: AirEast 31, Roger. I have a primary target about that position now. I have no known high-altitude traffic. Stand by one. I'll check Low [Altitude]. Over...
AirEast Pilot: AirEast 31. The traffic's not lower than us. He's one o'clock now, still above me and descending.
Air Traffic Controller: AirEast 31. Can you say aircraft type?
AirEast Pilot: Negative, Center. No distinct outline. To tell you the truth, the target is rather brilliant. It has the brightest anti-collision lights I think I've ever seen - alternating white to red. The colors are a little striking.
TWA Pilot: Center, this is TWA 517. Traffic now looks like extra bright landing lights. I thought AirEast had his landing lights on.
...
AirEast Pilot: OK Center. AirEast 31. The traffic has turned. He's heading right for my windshield. We're turning right... [A CONFLICT ALERT sounds]
Air Traffic Controller: AirEast 31, descend and maintain flight level three-one-zero. Break, Allegheny triple four. Turn right thirty degrees immediately...
AirEast Pilot: AirEast 31, Roger. The traffic is quite luminous and is exhibiting some non-ballistic motion. Over.
Air Traffic Controller: Roger, AirEast 31. Continue to send at your discretion, over.
AirEast Pilot: OK, Center. Center pilot's discretion is approved. The traffic is approaching head-on...and really moving. Went by us, right now. That was really close.

[Trying to explain fractions to his son] All right. Let's say... [Places an HO scale boxcar on a track] that this boxcar is 60 feet long and 1/3 of it is across this switch, all right?. And now, another train is coming. [Starts an engine] Now how far do you have to move this boxcar off the tracks so that the other train doesn't smash it? Quickly, Brad. There are thousands of lives at stake. Brad, any answer. [The train hits the boxcar]

[To Ronnie] Okay, I'm wrong. I'm Wrong Roy, okay? TOBY!! YOU ARE CLOSE TO DEATH!! GET OUT HERE!!!

Honey, Ronnie. Wake up. You're not gonna believe what I saw!...I never would have believed it. There was this, uh, in the cab, there was this...it was a red whoosh...You know, those pictures in the National Geographic about the Aurora Borealis? This is better than that! Come on! Ronnie, I need you to see something with me. It's really important. [wakes his kids] Silvia , come on. We're going on a little adventure. Toby! Brad! Come on. Get up. Up!...It's better than Goofy Golf! COME ON!!

I know this sounds crazy, but ever since yesterday on the road, I've been seeing this shape. Shaving cream, pillows...Dammit! I know this. I know what this is! This means something. This is important.

[to his family] Well, I guess you've noticed something a little strange with Dad. It's OK. I'm still Dad. I can't describe it - what I'm feeling.

I figured it out, that's all. Will you just listen?...Have you ever looked at something and it's crazy and then you looked at it in another way and it's not crazy at all?...Don't be scared. Just don't be scared. I feel really good. Everything's gonna be all right. I haven't felt this good in years.

[about the poison gas story] Look, I guarantee you that this whole thing is a put-on.

[to two white-uniformed men with gas masks] The only bad air around here is you guys fartin' around.

I didn't come this far just to be taken on any bus ride home.

[After an angry passerby tells him he is in the middle of a road whilst looking for Cornbread Road] Do you know where Cornbread is... TURKEY?!

Old Man: [about the UFOs] They can fly rings around the moon, but we're years ahead of them on the highway.

Ronnie Nealy: I can't believe it. Roy. You got fired. They didn't even want to talk to you. I mean, I don't understand this, Roy. Roy? What is happening here? We were up all night. I'm not getting a job you know. I'm not getting a day job.
