[after Jerry saved Davidge from sand monster]
You saved my life. Why?
Maybe I need to look at another face... even one as ugly as yours.
So you still think humans are ugly?
Compared to a Drac? VERY ugly. But that thing out there... is even more ugly than you.
You... are... welcome.

The UK cinema version had been shortened by the distributors before release following negative reviews in the US and was then cut by 27 secs by the BBFC for a PG certificate with edits made to the severed ear sequence. The cuts were restored to the 1987 15-rated video release and the full US version was released on DVD in 2002. See more »
I loved it! It came on AMC and there was nothing else I cared to watch, so I left it on, thinking to go to bed shortly. I ended up watching the whole thing. It kept me rivited from beginning to end. Dennis Quaid is one of my favorite actors and I didn't know Lou Gossett was the lizard, but I guessed it from his voice. When I checked the credits at the end, I was right! He was soooo good. I can't describe it, you have to watch it. I shed a few tears toward the end. Won't tell you if they were happy or sad tears tho! You'll have to see for yourself!
