Species (1995) Poster


Alfred Molina: Dr. Stephen Arden



  • Dr. Stephen Arden : [to Sil, after they finished having sex]  Oh my dear... I enjoyed that immensely!

  • Dr. Stephen Arden : [Stephen and Sil have just finished having sex. Sil seems distant for a second, but then chuckles excitedly]  What?

    Sil : I felt it!

    Dr. Stephen Arden : Felt what?

    Sil : It's started!

    Dr. Stephen Arden : What's started?

    Sil : Life!

    Dr. Stephen Arden : Oh, my darling girl!

    [laughs condeceningly] 

    Dr. Stephen Arden : Now, I know in some south african tribes women believe they know the exact moment of conception, but really...

    Sil : Don't you beleive me? Here, feel!

    [She grabs his hand and holds it against her belly] 

    Dr. Stephen Arden : [Stephen does indeed feel something in Sil's womb and his smile suddenly fades]  Holy Shit!

    [Sil covers Stephen's mouth to muffle his screams as she transforms into her alien form and kills him] 

  • Dr. Stephen Arden : Have you found any other bodies?

    Xavier Fitch : No, we haven't not yet.

    Dan Smithson, Empath : You will. She's a predator. Her eyes are in front. Her eyes are in front so she can judge the distance to her prey.

    Dr. Stephen Arden : That's right.

    Xavier Fitch : Where'd you learn that fact Dan?

    Dan Smithson, Empath : I saw it on a documentary on the Discovery channel.

  • Dr. Stephen Arden : Los Angeles is perfect for her. It's a city of the future. Anything goes. Totally mobile population. No ones a stranger. Very little in this town is taboo or unacceptable. Whatever she does, no one's going to notice.

  • Dr. Stephen Arden : [Last line before Sil pounces on him, naked and they have sex]  What about protection?

  • Dr. Stephen Arden : [Seconds after meeting him, the beautiful Sil is undressing and trying to seduce Stephen]  This sort of thing doesn't usually happen to me.

  • Dr. Stephen Arden : [to his surprise, Stephen walks in to his motel room to find a stranger, Sil, standing inside listening through the wall to a couple having sex in a neighboring room]  Who are you? What are you doing here?

    Sil : I saw you downstairs, but you were with all those people.

    [She approaches him, slipping the shoulder straps off her dress to expose her breasts] 

    Dr. Stephen Arden : Wh... What are you doing?

    [Sil kisses him] 

    Sil : It's not too soon for us to be together.

    [She kisses him again. Stephen stops resisting and starts undressing, himself] 

  • Xavier Fitch : Any ideas?

    Dr. Stephen Arden : Well, that's a - that looks like some sort of - chrysalis. Some sort of kind of cocoon.

    Preston Lennox : What are we lookin' for? A giant moth?

  • Preston Lennox : It's dead! Open the door.

    Dr. Stephen Arden : It's a dead fish. Let them out!

    Xavier Fitch : Oh, God. It's not dead.
