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