Supernova (2000/I)
Nick: Look at it! We don't even know what the hell that is. It can be just a light or a bomb or...
Danika: Or a sexual object; when you look right down to it, it looks like a...
[Nick interrupts immediately]

Nick: I'm in favor of order. I'd say right now order is up by one point with one minute left and chaos has the ball.

Dr. Kaela Evers: When you said you'd been in worse situations than this, were you lying?
Nick: No. When we were falling toward the planet and the engines cut out? That was worse.

Karl Larson: I think you're making a big mistake, Captain.
Nick: [spins on his heels] Oh, yeah? You want to clarify that?
Karl Larson: I'm offering you the opportunity of a lifetime and you're passing it up for all of us.
Nick: For all of us? Your opportunity of a lifetime has cost us the life of our ship's captain, it has endangered the lives of this crew, and it's wasting our critical time. All this for some half-baked delusional belief that you'll make yourself rich. There is no opportunity here and there is no us.

Nick: [Nick notices a robot ambling about erratically] God, what happened to your robot?
Dr. Kaela Evers: Nothing.
Nick: Really? I hope "nothing" doesn't happen to me.

Nick: Look. Since we don't bring out the pleasant side of each other, why don't you tell me what the hell bothers you so much about me, so I can...

Nick: I'm not someone.
Dr. Kaela Evers: I didn't say you were.
Nick: There's nothing I can do to change the past, yours or mine.
Dr. Kaela Evers: [sighs]
Nick: [places unused Hazen-withdrawl medication in front of her]
[whispers]
Nick: Heal thyself, doctor.

Nick: [about the alien object] I'm not convinced we shouldn't just blow it out of the closest airlock.
Karl Larson: You can't be serious! Do you have any idea what you're saying?
Nick: I'm saying I don't know what the hell it is and nothing you've shown me or told me indicates that you do either. Maybe it is an alien artifact, maybe it's a magic trick. Maybe it's a distillation of knowledge from an advanced civilization, maybe it's just a toy, an alien's child toy.
Danika: Or an alien sex object; it looks like...
Nick: [Interrupts] Or maybe it was something so dangerous that the only way someone could finally get rid of it was by burying it... maybe... it has no business being on this ship.

Nick: I've found that staying clean is like staying alive... you either are or you aren't.
