Morgan: Why not?
Graham Hess: We're not saying a prayer.

Graham Hess: All right, since you're all not going to eat, I'm going to try some of everything.
[He angrily starts piling food on his plate, and tries to eat, then breaks down crying. He pulls Morgan, Bo, and Merrill in, and everyone hugs]

[giving the dog a bowl of water]
Bo: It tastes funny.
[Morgan takes a sip]
Morgan: It does not. It's just tap water. Besides, he licks his butt every day, I don't think he'll mind.

Morgan: We have to tape this.
[he gets a tape, but Bo grabs it and hugs it to her]
Bo: My ballet recital!
Morgan: Listen, Bo. This is very important. Everything people have written about in science books is going to change. The history of the world's future is on the TV right now. We need to record this so you can show *your* children this tape and say *you* were there. For your children, Bo.
Bo: My ballet recital!

Morgan: [to Bo] Everything people have written about in science books is going to change...

Morgan: I told you.

Merrill: What did you say? Don't you ever say anything like that again. Ever!

Merrill: Morgan, this crop stuff is just about a bunch of nerds who never had a girlfriend their whole lives. They're like thirty now. They make up secret codes and analyze Greek mythology and make secret societies where other guys who never had girlfriends can join in. They do stupid crap like this to feel special. It's a scam. Nerds were doin' it twenty five years ago and new nerds are doing it again.
Graham Hess: Its just static, Morgan. Frequency.
[Weird noises come from the baby monitor]
Morgan: It's a code.
Bo: Why can't they get girlfriends?

Morgan: I think God did it.

Graham Hess: That's why he had asthma. It can't be luck. His lungs were closed. His lungs were closed. No poison got in. No poison got in. His lungs were closed. His lungs were closed.
[Merrill checks for a pulse]
Graham Hess: Don't touch him. Give him a minute.
[Merrill starts crying]
Merrill: Graham...
Graham Hess: Give him a second.

Graham Hess: Don't touch him.
Merrill: Graham...
Graham Hess: Don't... Don't.
Morgan: Dad? What happened? Did someone save me?
[Graham starts crying]
Graham Hess: Yeah, baby, I think someone did.

Morgan: It's not contaminated, you don't even know what that word means.

Graham Hess: My vote counts as two.
Morgan: That's bullshit. You're cheating.
Graham Hess: Morgan, calm down.
Morgan: We don't know anything yet...

Mr. Nathan: It's a bunch of crock. They're trying to sell sodas. I've been watching all morning, and I've seen 12 soda commercials. 12.
Morgan: Do you have any books on extraterrestrials?
Mr. Nathan: Don't tell me you believe this horse manure.
Mrs. Nathan: As a matter of fact, I think we do...

Morgan: They said there are one of two outcomes of an invasion. One: they fight, and are defeated, and have to return again with full forces hundreds or even thousands of years later.
Graham Hess: What's two?
Morgan: They win.

Graham Hess: Morgan, did this book of yours say what might happen if they were hostile?
Morgan: Yes, it said they would probably invade. They wouldn't use their technology, or fight in airborne battles, because they know eventually we would use nuclear weapons, and the planet would be useless to them.
Graham Hess: What else?
Morgan: It said there are two possible outcomes of an invasion. One, they fight and are defeated, and have to return with reinforcements. Hundreds, perhaps even thousands of years later.
Graham Hess: What's two?
Morgan: They win.

Morgan: If you're gonna make fun of it, then forget it.
Bo: This is serious.
Graham Hess: I don't know what got into me.
Morgan: There are pictures. Dr. Bimbu, one of the authors of the book...
Graham Hess: Bimbu?
Morgan: Dad!
Graham Hess: I just asked his name.
Morgan: You had a tone.

Merrill: I'll make some sandwiches.
Bo: I want spaghetti.
Graham Hess: Spaghetti sounds great. What do you want, Morgan?
Morgan: Anything? French toast and mashed potatoes.
Graham Hess: Good choice. Merrill?
Merrill: Chicken Teriyaki.
Graham Hess: I'm gonna have a cheeseburger with bacon.
[smiles]
Graham Hess: Extra bacon.

Morgan: The book says they're probably very good problem solvers. They'll find a way in.

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.
Merrill: Don't worry.
Morgan: You won't let anything happen to us, right?
Merrill: No way.
Morgan: I wish you were my dad.
Merrill: What did you say? Don't you ever say anything like that again. Ever!
[Graham covers the window with another board]

Merrill: I'll make some sandwiches.
Bo: I want spaghetti.
Merrill: We'll just eat fast Bo.
Graham Hess: Spaghetti sounds great. What do you want Morgan?
Morgan: Anything. French toast... and mashed potatoes.
Graham Hess: Now we're talking. How about you, Merrill?
Merrill: Chicken teriyaki.
Graham Hess: Good choice. And I'm going to have a cheeseburger with bacon... extra bacon.

Morgan: [seeing his father staring at them in slight confusion as to why they have their heads wrapped in tinfoil] It's so the aliens can't read our minds.
Graham Hess: [in a placidly-resigned playing-along-and-almost-half-believing-it-himself-at-that-point tone] Oh - - oh, of course.
