  • (Ernest Borgnine) "So? So why not take this ship and Reinhart back home?"
  • (Robert Forster) "That's a long shot you're talking, Harry."
  • (Ernest Borgnine) "Oh, come on. You've got two scientific wizards here who could figure out the computers and possibly even reprogram the robots. And the three of us can handle Reinhart and that pet monster of his. I tell ya -- we could all be heroes."

  • (Anthony Perkins) "There's an entirely different universe beyond that black hole. A point where time and space as we know it no longer exists. We will be the first to see it, to explore it, to experience it."
  • (Ernest Borgnine) "Damn it all, Dan. If we wait for Alex, we may be too late. Don't you see? He's hypnotized by that man."
  • (Robert Forster) "V.I.N.CENT."
  • (V.I.N.CENT) "Yes, Captain?"
  • (Robert Forster) "Tell Kate I want her back here fast, with or without Alex. Tell her why."
  • (Yvette Mimieux) "V.I.N.CENT; are you sure you're alright?"
  • (V.I.N.CENT) "Down, but never for the full count, Dr. McCrae."
  • (Yvette Mimieux) "Are you alright, V.I.N.CENT?"
  • (V.I.N.CENT) "Nothing a hammer and a little metal polish can't fix, thank you."

  • (Yvette Mimieux) "Don't give up so easily. We'll still have a lot to study while curving home. And our sweep is just one expedition. There'll be others. I'll be sure to charm the powers-that-be into signing you and VINCENT on with any crew I can organize."
  • (Robert Forster) "The powers-that-be will have other plans for VINCENT -- like the scrapheap."
  • (Yvette Mimieux) "I won't let them, not after all he's done for us. He's too good a friend. I'll -- adopt him, or something."
  • (Robert Forster) "VINCENT and I have been going on missions together since he was built. We're a package deal."
  • (Yvette Mimieux) "I don't know if I can adopt you."
  • (Robert Forster) "That isn't quite what I've got in mind."
  • (Robert Forster) "Kate McCrae, will you --"
  • (Joseph Bottoms) "Dan? We've got something up here; I think you'd better take a look at it."
  • (Yvette Mimieux) "Alex, I'm beginning to feel you want to go with him."
  • (Anthony Perkins) "On a glorious pilgrimage straight into what may be the mind of God. I do. I do."
