Dialogue[edit]

MNU Agent: MNU! We're serving eviction notices.
Alien: What is "eviction"?

Christopher Johnson's Son: How many moons does our planet have?
Christopher Johnson: Seven.
Christopher Johnson's Son: This planet only has one. I can't wait to see our planet again... it's bigger than this one, isn't it?
Christopher Johnson: [turns off holographic atlas of what seems to be the Alien home planet] Enough.
Christopher Johnson's Son: We go home now?
Christopher Johnson: Not home, no. This is where we must go. [shows his son an MNU brochure outlining "Sanctuary Park Alien Relocation Camp" aka District 10] See that tent there? That might be ours.
Christopher Johnson's Son: I want to go home!
Christopher Johnson: We can't go home. Not anymore.

Christopher Johnson's Son: Fuel goes in here!
Christopher Johnson: That's enough! QUIET!
Christopher Johnson's Son: ...then we fly away.
Christopher Johnson: I said QUIET! We cannot trust him.
Wikus Van De Merwe: What is he saying about the fuel, is this, are you trying to start this thing? He-he... Are you little fuckers trying to start this, and get away, eh?
Christopher Johnson: Never mind.
Wikus Van De Merwe: Ha-ha. Yeah, you sneaky fuckin' prawns, heh? I knew you prawns were intelligent.
Christopher Johnson: Too bad. I could have fixed you.
Wikus Van De Merwe: Wha-- Well-well-wha-what did you say about-about the fixing?

Christopher Johnson: [after Wikus uses his alien weapon to kill a guard] Fuck! I thought you said not to kill them?
Wikus Van De Merwe: He shot at me!

Wikus Van De Merwe: Don't give up on me, Okay? Because I haven't given up on you. Alright?
Tania Van De Merwe: I won't.
