Sphere (1998)
Barnes: Ask him for his last name.
Harry: What?
Barnes: I want a full name for my report. I'm not putting in my report that I lost a crew member on a deep-sat expedition to find an alien named "Jerry."

Harry: Are you a religious man, Norman?
Norman Goodman: Atheist, but I'm flexible.

Harry: So that's what the little green men are saying now? "Take me to your therapist"?

Harry: Whatever it is, it was inside the Sphere. Now it's out, free to act.

Norman Goodman: I would be happy if Jerry had no emotions whatsoever. Because the thing of it is once you go down that road... here's Jerry, an emotional being cooped up for 300 years with no one to talk to... none of the socialization, the emotional growth that comes from contact with other emotional beings...
Harry: So...?
Norman Goodman: What happens if Jerry gets mad?

Harry: [sympathetically] Are you afraid of dying, Norman?

Harry: See? It's not impossible - it's ridiculous.

Harry: [quoting "Jerry"] "I make a journey. You make a journey. We make a journey together."
Beth: I think Jerry's channeling Deepak Chopra.

Harry: I forgive you, Norman. I forgive you! But I *don't* forgive you for Ted - he's a pain in the ass.

Norman Goodman: What is it, Harry?
Dr. Harry Adams: Take a look. It's chipped!
Captain Harold C. Barnes: Alright, it's chipped - so what?
Dr. Harry Adams: Well I thought you said this thing wouldn't damage when it crashed and that this titanium alloy was so superstrong there's no way you can hurt it.
Captain Harold C. Barnes: I did.
Dr. Harry Adams: So how come it chips when this scientist just bangs on it with a hammer?

Dr. Harry Adams: Anybody else wonder who the hell opened that door?

Norman Goodman: What the hell is it?
Captain Harold C. Barnes: Whatever it is - it seems to be what this bird was designed to do. Go out in the space and gather things like this up and bring it back.
Norman Goodman: Yeah, but back from where?
Dr. Harry Adams: Don't get too excited, Ted - turn this thing over and it'll probably say 'Made in Korea'

Dr. Harry Adams: We're all gonna die down here.
Norman Goodman: What?
Dr. Harry Adams: You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.

Dr. Harry Adams: I'm not choking, you asshole! I hate squid!

Dr. Harry Adams: Calling Dr. Halperine... Dr. Beth Halperine... Please return to reality.

[last lines]
Norman Goodman: Why are you holding my hand?
Harry: YOU'RE holding MY hand.

Harry: Follow the yellow brick road.

Dr. Harry Adams: Where's Teeny? I thought she did all the cooking around here.
Captain Harold C. Barnes: She had an unfortunate accident Harry, she was killed.
Dr. Harry Adams: Killed? how?
Captain Harold C. Barnes: Jellyfish.
Dr. Harry Adams: Jellyfish? That's strange.
Captain Harold C. Barnes: Yes that is strange isn't it.
