VLC Icon (New).svg This article falls within a proposed limits on quotations policy.

The subject of this article is a film, and as a result, the proposal would set a limitation of five quotes per hour (about one quote every 12 minutes).

If you would like to add another quote to the page, you should consider whether to remove one that is already there in order to keep within the bounds of fair use of copyright material.
For reference, the length of this work is: 144 minutes.

Change to "Alien (series)"[edit]

Unless there's a general objection, I'd like to change this page to "Alien (series)" to cover the entire Alien series, with redirects from all four canonical films (Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, and Alien Resurrection). This would parallel pages like Star Wars and Back to the Future, with each movie having its own section. Let me know what y'all think. — Jeff Q 12:50, 2 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Fairly sure that Hudson's 'badass' quote is innaccurate.

Black Velvet - I'm sorry, but your proposal falls short a few notches. You see, all four movies are very different, and are very much their own, rather than part of a series, such as the previously mentioned Star Wars, or Back to the Future. For one thing, I'll be in my cold cold grave before I see dribble like "I am the ultimate badass!!! Oh Yeah!!" posted along the same lines as the enigmatic quotation from the other three superior Alien films. (Added by (talk · contributions)

Well, that is hardly the spirit in which to approach compromise (unless you assume all compromises begin with killing all dissenters). Many series change in quality over time -- many Star Wars fans think the 1-3 episodes were significantly worse than 4-6. The difference in tone and quality is not enough an argument, at least according to evident wikiquote tradition, for splitting into seperate pages. ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 10:55, 28 August 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Is this a list of memorable quotes or a transcript of the movie?--Animebill 22:12, 12 August 2005 (UTC)[reply]

"[the drop-ship crashes] Well that's great, that's just fuckin' great man. Now what the fuck are we supposed to do? We're in some real pretty shit now man... That's it man, game over man, game over! What the fuck are we gonna do now? What are we gonna do?" (2 locations on page) - I hear this as real fruity shit. Which is not to say that fruit can't be pretty...--Zippity 18:05, 9 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]


Added a cleanup request to this wikiquote article as it is far too long and reads like a transcipt of the entire movie. Also does not include only notable quotes and dialogue. See wikiquote rules which include "Notable: We limit ourselves to quotations which are notable." Also Hudson's quote at the top is repeated uneccessarily at the bottom... -- Nreive 09:55, 17 November 2007 (UTC)[reply]

needs more quotes[edit]

this movie's a classic in its genre, and there are tons of great lines not listed here. i mean, hell, serenity is longer than this page (not to say that serenity's not fantastic, but plenty of elements in it and firefly were inspired by aliens). this needs to be fixed. 03:40, 24 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Actually, this page has just been trimmed again because of copyright concerns; see Wikiquote:Limits on quotations. Serenity (film) has been tagged for trimming as well; it's just a matter of time before we get around to it. - InvisibleSun 04:17, 24 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]
