Elizabeth Driscoll: People are being duplicated. And once it happens to you, you're part of this... thing. It almost happened to me!

Elizabeth Driscoll: I keep seeing these people, all recognizing each other. Something is passing between them all, some secret. It's a conspiracy, I know it.

Elizabeth Driscoll: Matthew, I'm telling you something is going on here.

[Matthew begins to back away]
Elizabeth Driscoll: Matthew. Matthew!

Matthew Bennell: [Elizabeth and Matthew are captured by snathcers in the Health Department office. Kibner gives them sedatives, so that they can be snatched while asleep] Listen, we're not the last humans left. There are people who will fight you. They will find out what you're doing here.

Elizabeth Driscoll: How are we gonna get out of here?
Matthew Bennell: Through the door. Come on.

[while Matthew drives Elizabeth through the city, a crazed man runs up to their car]
Elizabeth Driscoll: Look out!
[Matthew slams on the brakes, but the man's head still strikes the already broken windshield. Unfazed, the man immediately proceeds to pound on the windshield for attention]

Running man: [panicked shouting] Help! They're coming! They're coming!

[he runs around the corner as a crowd chases him]
Matthew Bennell: He must have done something.
[a horn sounds, brakes screech, a thud his heard, and Elizabeth gasps involuntarily]

[They make the turn and see a throng of expressionless people standing silently over the man's dead body in the street. The policeman waves them by]

Elizabeth Driscoll: I hate you.
Dr. David Kibner: There's no need for hate now. Or love.

Matthew Bennell: Do you want to go see my friend David Kibner?
Elizabeth Driscoll: The psychiatrist?
Matthew Bennell: Not like that. Talk to him. He would put things into perspective. -...
Elizabeth Driscoll: I'm not crazy.
Matthew Bennell: No, no, no. I'm serious. He would eliminate whether Geoffrey was having an affair, or had become gay. Whether he had a social disease, or had become a Republican. All the things that could have happened to have made you feel he had changed.


Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: This is the oddest thing I've ever heard of. Let's hope we don't catch it. I'd hate to wake up some morning and find out that you weren't you.
Becky: [laughs] I'm not the high school kid you use to romance, so how can you tell?
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: You really want to know?
Becky: Mmm-hmm.
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: [after kissing her] Mmmm, you're Becky Driscoll, all right!

Becky: Is this an example of your bedside manner, doctor?
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: No, ma'am. That comes later.

Becky: They're like huge seed pods!

Becky: I can't do it, I can't, can't, can't go on.
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: Yes you can.

Becky: I don't want to live in a world without love or grief or beauty, I'd rather die.

Becky: Miles, why don't you call Danny? Maybe he can help.
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: Danny? No. The way he was behaving last night... I'm afraid it's too late to call Danny too.
Becky: Well, what are you going to do?
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: Get help. I hope whatever's taking place is confined to Santa Mira!

Dr. Miles J. Bennell: What'll you have? We're pushing appendectomies this week.
[Becky laughs]
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: I don't know, maybe I clown around too much, pretty soon my patients won't trust me to prescribe aspirin for them. Seriously, what's the trouble?
Becky: It's my cousin.
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: Wilma? What's the matter?
Becky: She has a, well I guess you call it a delusion, you know her uncle, Uncle Ira?
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: Sure, I'm his doctor.
Becky: Well Miles, she's got herself thinking he isn't her uncle.
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: How do you mean? That they're not really related?
Becky: No, she thinks he's an impostor or something, someone who only looks like Ira.
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: Have you seen him?
Becky: I just came from there.
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: Well, is he Uncle Ira or isn't he Uncle Ira?
Becky: Of course he is, I told Wilma that but it was no use.

Dr. Miles J. Bennell: [Upon learning that Becky is also divorced] Well, I guess that makes us Lodge Brothers now...
Becky: yes
Dr. Miles J. Bennell: Except that I'm paying dues while you collect them.
Becky: [laughing] Oh, Miles!
