Thomas Jerome Newton[edit]

  • We'd have probably done the same to you, if you'd come 'round our place.
  • The strange thing about television is that it doesn't tell you everything. It shows you everything about life on Earth, but the true mysteries remain. Perhaps it's in the nature of television. Just waves in space.

Mary-Lou[edit]

  • You know Tommy, you're a freak. I don't mean that unkindly. I like freaks. And that's why I like you.
