Quotes:
From Signs (2002)
Morgan: [all four member of the Hess family are in front of the tv, watching the lights from alien spaceships hover in the night sky] There are lights in over 274 cities. They think it'll be 400 within the hour. They're appearing at or within one mile of crop signs.
Merrill: [referring to the crop circle in their corn field] They were for navigation. They made a map. They're going to be within a mile of us.
Morgan: Dad!
Graham Hess: Yes?
Morgan: [quoting his new library book about aliens] I think these are stages immediately preceding an attack maneuver. I was wrong. They're hostile.
Merrill: It's like War of the Worlds.
TV Anchor: Ground forces have been assembled in countries throughout the globe. Hundreds of thousands have flocked to synagogues, temples, and churches. God be with us all.
Graham Hess: [about how he and Merrill have been nailing boards over every opening in the house] I'm going to get back to the windows.
Merrill: [Graham leaves and uncle Merill kneels beside the children] You guys okay?
Morgan: Some guy had a sign saying it was the end of the world.
