View Quote Weyland was a superstitious man. He wanted a true believer on board. You have to stop it! … If you don't stop it, there won't be any home to go back to. It's — it's carrying death — and it's headed for Earth. I don't want go to back to where we came from. I want to go where they came from. They created us. Then they tried to kill us. They changed their minds. I deserve to know why. Charlie Holloway: [pointing at diagrams] These are images of archaeological digs all over the Earth: ancient civilizations that shared no contact. And yet, the same pictogram on every last one of them.
Fifield: A star map?
Elizabeth Shaw: No, an invitation.
Fifield: From whom?
View Quote "The trick, William Potter, is not minding that it hurts."
View Quote David [quoting lines from the film Lawrence of Arabia]: "There is nothing in the desert, and no man needs nothing."
Elizabeth Shaw: What is that?
David: Just something from a film I like.
View Quote David: Why do you think your people made me?
Charlie Holloway: We made you because we could.
David: Can you imagine how disappointing it would be for you to hear the same thing from your creator?
View Quote Elizabeth Shaw: [in an alien chamber] Prometheus, are you seeing this?
Meredith Vickers: They were right …
Janek: You wanted them to be wrong?
View Quote Elizabeth Shaw: I don't want go to back to where we came from. I want to go where they came from. You think you can do that, David?
David: Yes, I believe I can. … May I ask what you hope to achieve by going there?
Elizabeth Shaw: They created us. Then they tried to kill us. They changed their minds. I deserve to know why.
David: The answer is irrelevant. It doesn't matter why they changed their minds.
Elizabeth Shaw: Yes — yes, it does.
David: I don't understand.
Elizabeth Shaw: Well … I guess that's because I'm a human being, and you're a robot.
View Quote Elizabeth Shaw: If we can't make contact, why did you — why did you even bring us here?
Meredith Vickers: Weyland was a superstitious man. He wanted a true believer on board. Cheers.
View Quote Elizabeth Shaw: You can't leave — please — you have to stop it!
Meredith Vickers: We're not stopping anything, Shaw — we're going home.
Elizabeth Shaw: Janek! If you don't stop it, there won't be any home to go back to. It's — it's carrying death — and it's headed for Earth.
View Quote Meredith Vickers: Any casualties?
David: Casualties, ma'am?
Meredith Vickers: Has anyone died?
David: No, ma'am … everyone's fine.
Meredith Vickers: Well, then wake 'em up.
View Quote Meredith Vickers: I think there might be some confusion about our relationship. Weyland found you impressive enough to fund this mission, but I'm fairly certain your Engineers are nothing but scribblings of savages living in dirty little caves. But let's say I'm wrong, and you do find these "beings" down there: you won't engage them, you won't talk to them, you will do nothing but report back to me.
Charlie Holloway: Ummm, Miss Vickers, is there an agenda that you're not telling us about?
View Quote Meredith Vickers: What did he say, David?
David: I don't think he'd want me to tell you.
Meredith Vickers: What did he say?
David: I'm sorry — [she slams him against the wall, as he calmly continues speaking] — that's confidential.
Meredith Vickers: Oh my god — I will find the cord that makes you run, and I will cut it. What did he say?
David: He said … try harder.
View Quote Peter Weyland: [last words]: There is nothing.
David: I know. Have a good journey, Mr. Weyland.
View Quote Weyland Corporation: Building Better Worlds. Hello, friends. My name is Peter Weyland. I am your employer. I am recording this 22 June 2091 — and if you are watching it, you have reached your destination, and I am long dead. May I rest in peace. There is a man sitting with you today — his name is David — he is the closest thing to a son I will ever have. Unfortunately he is not human. He will never grow old and he will never die — and yet he is unable to appreciate these remarkable gifts, for that would require the one thing that David will never have: a soul. I have spent my entire lifetime contemplating the questions "Where do we come from — what is our purpose — what happens when we die?" And I have finally found two people who have convinced me they're on the verge of answering them: Doctors Holloway and Shaw — if you would please stand. As far as you're concerned, they're both in charge. The Titan Prometheus wanted to give mankind equal footing with the gods — for that he was cast from Olympus. Well, my friends, the time has finally come for his return.
