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.
Barnes: Ask him for his last name.
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.
[from trailer only]
Beth: Is there heat coming off this thing or is it just happy to see me?
Interviewer: I see you have a scar on your neck.
Beth: Car accident.
Interviewer: Were you drinking?
Beth: Yeah - but I wasn't driving.
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...
Norman Goodman: What happens if Jerry gets mad?
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!
Beth: Are you telling me that by Harry going into the Sphere, he now has the power to manifest his dreams, his fantasies.
Norman Goodman: MANIFEST! MANIFEST! He made it happen. It's not that different from a child. A child imagines something that believes its real and its not there, but with Harry, He not only makes it real from himself, he makes real for all of us.
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.
[the group is breathing helium]
Dr. Ted Fielding: [high pitched voice] Oxygen is a corrosive gas, in the same family as fluorine and chlorine - hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid. That's why we're breathing helium down here, because oxygen at any level higher than 2.3 becomes toxic.
Norman Goodman: [high pitched voice] Can you run that by me again, Ted? I don't speak balloon.
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?
Dr. Ted Fielding: We come in peace. Hm - I always wanted to say that.
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.
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!
Dr. Harry Adams: Calling Dr. Halperine... Dr. Beth Halperine... Please return to reality.
Norman Goodman: ['Jerry' types on the screen "I WANT TO TALK TO TED"] You can't Jerry he's dead.
Norman Goodman: ['Jerry' types on the screen "I WANT TO TALK TO BARNES"] You can't talk to him either Barnes is dead too.
Norman Goodman: ['Jerry' types on the screen "I WANT TO TALK TO THEM NOW!"] You can't Jerry they're dead you killed them
Norman Goodman: ['Jerry' types on the screen "I WILL KILL YOU!"] No Jerry don't do that.
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.
