V (1984-1985) is a TV series that takes place a year after Liberation Day when, courtesy of the red-dust bacteria, the humanoid, lizard-like aliens develop a resistance to the micro-organism and try to regain control of the Earth--only now some humans are knowingly working with them.


Lydia: I'm merely following the commander's orders, Diana. I suggest you do the same.
Diana: When I want your suggestions, Lydia, I'll put a box outside my door.

(Bates is reciting a list of Diana's crimes to her)
Nathan Bates: ...and, not to forget, cannibalism.
Diana: That's a matter of taste.
Bates: I may have been born at night, Diana, but I wasn't born last night.

Lydia: You know, I've never lost in mortal combat!
Diana: Idiot! If you had, you'd be dead.

Mike Donovan: We know Bates is in bed with Diana.
Willie: Really? I did not know that.
Elias Taylor: It's a figure of speech, Willie.
Willie: With Diana, one never knows.

(Playing the piano and singing off-key.)
Willie: Deck the halls with lousy folly/Fa la la la la, la la la la/Tis the evening scruffy molly/Fa la la la la, la la la la/Don't we know how gay a carol/Fa la la, la la la, la la la/Holy moly Yule Tide carol/Fa la la la la, la la...
Visitor Guard:[Yanking Willie off the piano and starting to play.] That's terrible. Take a walk!
Julie Parrish: Willie, are you all right?
Willie: Yes. He only injured my prize. [An even worse sounding tune is played on the piano by the Visitor guard, and all the Visitors present rise to their feet]
Julie: 'What is that noise?'
Willie: Oh, that is our national anthem. [Julie then stands up and begins to sing America The Beautiful]

Liberation Day [1.1][edit]

Martin: What do you think you're gonna get for stealing a helicopter?
Mike: Two years. Or a pulitzer prize! Now where's that ambulance?

Nathan: Tell me, Mr. Tyler, what would you do with Diana?
Ham': I'd use her for target practice.
Nathan: Then you reject the argument that she can atone for her crimes by helping us in our fight against disease?
Ham: Diana is the disease.
