Favorite Alien Series Quote (singular)




Posted Apr-19-2017 10:55 PM

Lots of choices but you only get one! I guess I would have to choose Ripley from Aliens:

"You know, Burke, I don't know which species is worse. You don't see them fucking each other over for a goddamn percentage. " Sorry for the F bomb Chris, but it is a quote.

Care to weigh in?

Okay, I previously had a different quote, but after a certain time around of thinking about, I've decided to change it. I've never seen the Alien movies, but I believe Prometheus is considered the part.

"Big things have small beginnings."

"Stop your grinning and drop your linen....found em"-Hudson Aliens

Grinning & Dropping Linen I thought you probably liked that quote for some strange reason ;)

Ash: "I admire its purity. A survivor... unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality."

BWW- Great quote! Tough to choose from so many!


Apr-20-2017 12:17 AM


TY! I've always loved that quote, it sums the Alien up so chillingly. :)

*Man's giant leap was just a stumble in the dark.*

Blackwinter-witch Agreed. I think Ripley's quote summed up the crux of the Company's agenda vs Humanity's protest of being sold out in general. A quote that can encompass politics, theology and ethics.


Apr-20-2017 12:29 AM


I agree totally with you about Ripley's quote!! I love how she compares Humans to Aliens and manages to make us sound worse :)

*Man's giant leap was just a stumble in the dark.*

@BWW - That too, is my favorite.  It's so hard to pick one, and after a good watching marathon I will probably pick another favorite, lol.

Why? Why are the innocent punished? Why the sacrifice? Why the pain? There aren't any promises. Nothing certain. Only that some get called, some get saved. She won't ever know the hardship and grief for those of us left behind. We commit these bodies to the void with a glad heart. For within each seed, there is a promise of a flower, and within each death, no matter how small, there's always a new life. A new beginning. Amen.

There's a pretty decent number to choose, and there's nothing stating two people cannot share a common favorite. :)

An Alien 3 quote! Not many of those around these parts.


Apr-20-2017 3:12 AM

Here's one from ALIEN 4
"Want another souvenier?"

*Man's giant leap was just a stumble in the dark.*


Apr-20-2017 3:14 AM

I reckon Alien 3 has some of the best quotes that sum up the Alienverse



Apr-20-2017 3:16 AM

Yeah, true. And it did have some really well-developed characters.

*Man's giant leap was just a stumble in the dark.*


Apr-20-2017 3:18 AM

BWW- that is TWO quotes! *kicks dirt around and yells at clouds*

Love it in ALIEN when Parker and Brett are fixing things on Nostromo and Brett says something like "Nah, shouldn't have landed on this damn ball" Cracks me up every time :)

If you want I can delete the post?

*Man's giant leap was just a stumble in the dark.*


Apr-20-2017 3:48 AM

BWW- LOL I will 'borrow' that error 404 quote! All good!


Apr-20-2017 3:57 AM


Please do!! :D

It just popped into my head, but it does sum up more than a few of the things we Humans do. :)
Glad to know all's good :)

"I admire its purity. A survivor... unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality."

this quote is haunting and very informative while being mysterious at the same time....it tells us this things is something beyond our comprehension and understanding and contains such a foreboding message without actually saying it. That this creature is the embodiment of death..but yet hints at so much more, leaving the audience to want and desire to know or understand what this thing is and where it came from etc

one of the outstanding quotes in any film IMO
