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."

Barnes: If this translation is right this alien sounds like an idiot.
Beth: That's something to consider - a stupid alien. Well, they must have them.

Barnes: Oh, you are a hell of a woman. I wish I knew you in the old days. Norman told me you were...
Beth: [defensive] Norman told you what?
Barnes: Let's put it this way - that if Jerry could read your mind, he'd be bored with ours!

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?

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'

Captain Harold C. Barnes: Break out your five-day deodorant pads - we're here for the duration.

Captain Harold C. Barnes: If the habitat is full of water, you'll be dead!

Norman Goodman: Can I ask you something about this reflective surface?
Barnes: Yeah, it appears to be mercury, doesn't it? Except mercury is liquid at this temperature.
Norman Goodman: Oh, no. That's not what I'm talking about. What worries me is that it's reflecting everything but us.

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.
