Lindsey Brigman: I'm *telling* you what it is, you're just not *hearing* me.
Catfish De Vries: Now Lindsey, you...
Lindsey Brigman: There is something down there! Something not us.
Catfish De Vries: You could be more specific.
Virgil: [humorously] Somethin' that "zigs".
Lindsey Brigman: Not *us*. Not *human*, get it? Something non-human, but intelligent... A non-terrestrial intelligence.
