Aliens (1986) Poster


Colette Hiller: Corporal Ferro



  • Private Vasquez : [after barely surviving the alien surprise attack]  All right. We got seven canisters of CM-20. I say we roll them in there and nerve gas the whole fuckin' nest.

    Corporal Hicks : It's worth the try, but we don't know if that's gonna affect them.

    Private Hudson : Look let's just bug out and call it even, okay? What are we even talking about this for?

    Ripley : I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    Private Hudson : Fuckin' A!

    Burke : Hold on, hold on just a second. This installation has a substantial dollar value attached to it.

    Ripley : They can *bill* me.

    Burke : Okay, I know this is an emotional moment for all of us, okay? I know that. But let's not make snap judgments, please. This is clearly... clearly an important species we're dealing with and I don't think that you or I, or *anybody*, has the right to arbitrarily exterminate them.

    Ripley : [laughs feebly]  Wrong.

    Private Vasquez : Yeah. Watch us.

    Private Hudson : Hey, maybe you haven't been keeping up on current events, but we just got our asses kicked, pal!

    Burke : Look. I'm not blind to what's going on, but I cannot authorize that kind of action. I'm sorry.

    Ripley : Well, I believe that Corporal Hicks... has authority here.

    Burke : *Corporal* Hicks has...

    Ripley : This operation is under military jurisdiction and Hicks is next in chain of command. Am I right, Corporal?

    Corporal Hicks : Yeah... yeah, that's right.

    Burke : Yeah... Look, Ripley, this is a multi-million dollar installation, okay? He can't make that kind of decision. He's just a grunt! Uh, no offense.

    Corporal Hicks : [coldly]  None taken.

    Corporal Hicks : [into headset]  Ferro, do you copy?

    Corporal Ferro : [on comms]  Standing by.

    Corporal Hicks : Prepare for dust-off. We're gonna need immediate evac.

    Corporal Ferro : [on comms]  Roger. On our way.

    Corporal Hicks : I say we take off, nuke the site from orbit.

    [looks to Ripley] 

    Corporal Hicks : It's the only way to be sure.

    [Ripley smiles] 

  • Corporal Ferro : [as dropship enters atmosphere]  We're in the pipe, five by five.

  • Private Vasquez : Hey, mira, who's Snow White?

    Corporal Ferro : She's supposed to be some kinda consultant. Apparently she saw an alien once.

    Private Hudson : Whoopee-fuckin'-do. Hey, I'm impressed.
