Supernova (I) (2000)
[as the ship prepares to make a dimension jump]
Yerzy Penalosa: Man, last time we did this I didn't shit right for a month.
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]
Karl Larson: Stars die so we may live. We die so stars may be reborn.
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.
Dr. Kaela Evers: Whoever they are, they're as smart as God and a lot less nice.
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...
Dr. Kaela Evers: I don't like Hazen. It's just not a type-H mind-altering escape. I don't like what it does to people who take it; I don't like what they do to others. I used to know someone...
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]
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.
