"V" (1983)
John: We have come in peace, to all mankind. Our planet is the 4th in distance from the star you call Sirius, some 8.7 light years from Earth. This is the first time we have left our system, and you the first intelligent life we've encountered. We're pleased to meet you.

John: The Secretary General referred to me as the "Supreme Commander", actually I'm just sort of an Admiral, responsible for this small fleet around your planet.
Dr. Ben Taylor: This *small* fleet? Yeah right...

John: We have come on behalf of our great Leader, him who governs our united planet with benevolence and wisdom. We have come because we need your help. Our planet is in serious environmental difficulty, far far worse than yours, it's reached the stage where we will be unable to survive without immediate assistance. There are certain chemicals and compounds which we must manufacture, which alone can save our struggling civilization. And you can help us manufacture these and in return, we will gladly share with you the fruits of our knowledge.
Kristine Walsh: Unbelievable...
Michael Donovan: Yeah...
John: Now that we have established contact, we will like to meet with individual governments to make requests for certain operating plants to be retooled for the manufacture of the compound which we need.
Eleanor Dupres: I hope they pick your plant!
John: And we'll reward your generosity as I have said by educating your industrial and scientific complex to the limits of our knowledge, helping to solve your environmental, agricultural and health dilemmas. Then we'll leave you as we came... In peace.
Denny: Talk about an offer we can't refuse, huh!
Juliet Parrish: I wonder what would happen if we did...
John: Now if our circumstances were reversed, and you had come to visit us, I know that I would feel a burning curiosity to see the inside your of spacecraft right away.
Robert Maxwell: An understatement!
John: With that in mind, I'd like to have the Secretary General and several of your journalists accompany us back aboard our Mother Ship, for the first of many opportunities to get to know us better.
