  • (Sigourney Weaver) "It's using the air shafts."

  • (Sigourney Weaver) "Obviously it means killing it. But we have to stick together."
  • (Sigourney Weaver) "Final report of the commercial starship Nostromo, third officer reporting. The other members of the crew; Kane, Lambert, Parker, Brett, Ash, and Captain Dallas; are dead. Cargo and ship destroyed. I should reach the frontier in about six weeks. With a little luck, the network will pick me up. This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off."

  • (Sigourney Weaver) "And, uh, our guest?"
  • (Ian Holm) "Um."
  • (Sigourney Weaver) "Hm?"
  • (Ian Holm) "Well, as I said, I'm still -- collating, actually, but uh, I have confirmed that he's got an outer layer of protein polysaccharides. Has a funny habit of shedding his cells and replacing them with polarized silicon, which gives him a prolonged resistance to adverse environmental conditions. Is that enough?"
  • (Sigourney Weaver) "That's plenty. What does it mean?"
  • (Ian Holm) "Please don't do that. Thank you."
  • (Sigourney Weaver) "I'm sorry."
  • (Ian Holm) "Well, it's an interesting combination of elements making him a -- tough little son-of-a-bitch."

  • (Sigourney Weaver) "Oh, I see. You just broke it, hm?"
  • (Ian Holm) "Look, what would you have done with Kane, hm? You know his only chance of survival was to get him in here."
  • (Sigourney Weaver) "Unfortunately, by, uh, breaking quarantine, you risk everybody's life."
  • (Ian Holm) "Maybe I should have left him outside. Maybe I've jeopardized the rest of us, but it was a risk I was willing to take."
  • (Sigourney Weaver) "That's a pretty big risk for a Science Officer. It's, uh, not exactly out of the manual, is it?"
