The Thing (1982) Poster


Thomas G. Waites: Windows



  • Palmer : [arguing about letting MacReady back inside]  Let's open the door.

    Childs : Hell no!

    Windows : Do you think he's changed into one of those Things?

    Palmer : He's had plenty of time.

    Childs : Nothing human could have made with back here through this weather without a guide line.

    Palmer : Let's open the door now!

    Childs : Why are you so anxious to let him back in here, Palmer?

    Palmer : Because it's so close! Maybe it may be our best chance to blow it away!

    Childs : No! Let's just let him freeze to death out there!

    Windows : Childs, what if we're wrong about him?

    Childs : Well then, we're wrong!

  • Garry : You reach anybody, yet?

    Windows : Reach anybody? We're a thousand miles from nowhere, man, and it's gonna get a hell of a lot worse before it gets any better!

  • Windows : You guys gonna listen to Garry? You gonna let him give the orders? I mean, he could BE one of those THINGS!

  • MacReady : [facing a silent group]  Anybody seen Fuchs? Somebody blew out a fuse in the lab. Lights where out in there for an hour; any ONE of us coulda gotten to him. All right, we gotta find him. Nauls, why don't you come with me and we'll look outside. Palmer, you and Windows check the inside.

    Palmer : I ain't going with Windows. I ain't goin' with 'im. I'll go with Childs.

    Windows : Hey, fuck you, Palmer!

    Palmer : I ain't goin' with you!

    Childs : Who says I want you goin' with ME?

    MacReady : [emphatically]  ALL RIGHT, CUT THE BULLSHIT!


    MacReady : Windows, you come with us. Norris, you stay here.

    MacReady : [referring to Garry, Clack & Doc tied to the sofa]  Any of them move, you fry 'em. You hear anything - anything at all - you cut loose on the sirens. We all meet back here in twenty minutes - REGARDLESS! And everybody watch whoever you're with... real close.
