Opening Crawl[edit]

  • By the close of the twentieth century, construction of colonies on the lunar surface had begun and with this colonization came a new era in space travel. As our story opens, Mayflower 1, the first passenger shuttle to the moon, prepares for its maiden voyage--a voyage filled with hope, yet destined for disaster. Meanwhile, in a galaxy far, far away, Princess Amoura lay back in her bed as the handsome young knight entered the room. The princess slipped off her robe, revealing her silky white thighs. The knight embraced her roughly, and began to caress her soft, round…

  • [to Elaine] We're not in the past or the present anymore, Elaine. This... is the FUTURE.


Girl on Shuttle: [Repeated to different men throughout the movie] I don't mean to sound forward. I mean, I know I don't know you. But I don't think we're gonna live through this. And... I've never been with a man before.

[The Wilson family gets settled in their seats]
Jimmy Wilson: I sure am glad they let Scraps ride up here with us, Dad.
John Wilson: I bet Scraps is gonna love the moon.
Jimmy: Do you think things will be a lot different on the moon, Dad?
John: Oh, it's gonna be terrific! A whole new world. New kids to play with!
Jimmy: Does that mean no more headlines about the rape trial?
John: [angrily while wrapping his knuckles] Not many kids get the chance to live on another planet.
Jimmy: No more kids yelling, "Your old man's a psychopathic sex pervert"?
John: [angrily grabs Jimmy's jacket and pulls him close] Look, a man can make an honest mistake! Anyway she was asking for it! They're all asking for it all the time! [lets go of Jimmy and sits back looking crazed]
Jimmy: [thought] Dad never slaps me around at home. It must be his coffee.
Alice Wilson: [thought] No, I've been serving Dad decaf. Hmm. Maybe he's just an asshole.

[Flashback at Ted Striker's trial, where a black man is on the docket and makes the witness oath]
Clerk: Do you swear on the Constitution of the United States to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Witness: Ain't no thing. [jive talk for "I do". slaps the clerk's book and the clerk uses his book to slap the witness's hand as if "giving fives" to each other]
Defense Attorney: [approaches the witness as he sits down in the witness stand] Would you describe in your own words, what happened that night?
Witness: Yo! Check it, bleed. Bro... was on! Didn't trip. But the folks was freakin', man. Hey, and the pilots were laid to the bone, Home. So Blood hammered out and jammed jet ship. Tightened that bad sucker inside the runaway like a mother. Shit. ["Mr. Striker performed exceptionally. The passengers were very concerned. The pilots were incapacitated. So Mr. Striker took control and landed that plane safely. Golly!"]

[in a montage of news reports]
News 14 Buffalo Anchorman: Our top story tonight: Four alarm fire rages through Downtown Buffalo. Also in the news, Lunar Shuttle heads for the Sun, and certain disaster.
Tokyo 4 Anchorman: Our top story tonight: Four alarm fire rages through Downtown Tokyo. Also in the news, American lunar mission locked in death struggle. [on the screen behind the anchorman is a clip of Godzilla clenching a Lunar Shuttle in between his teeth]
Moscow Anchorman: [being held at gunpoint] A four-alarm fire in Downtown Moscow clears way for a glorious new tractor factory. And on the lighter side of the news: Hundreds of Capitalists are soon to perish in Shuttle disaster. [a gunshot is heard as next scene cuts in]

[with the Mayflower heading towards the Sun and the flight crew gone, Ted is forced to think how to wrest control]
Ted Striker: We're going to have to blow the computer!
Elaine Dickinson: Blow ROC?
[a smiling face appears on the computer]

Steve McCroskey: Listen good. That thing is bound to come apart on you at that speed, and that's no good! It's got to be in one piece when you land on the moon! You know damn well that that warp drive has never been tested! [stabs his cigarette into the left hand of the controller sitting next to him] You're putting yourself and everybody else on that ship in jeopardy!
[Cuts to Art Fleming hosting a Jeopardy! game on the shuttle with the passengers as the contestants]
Art Fleming: All right, Contestant #38.
Contestant #38: Art, I'll take Air Shuttle Disasters for $40.
Art Fleming: The answer is... [The $40 display rotates to reveal the answer] the Mayflower!
