All you need is love, John Lennon, smart man, shot in the back, very sad.

The only mistake I ever made was to appoint a sniveling little weasel like you Secretary of Defense. However, that is a mistake, I am happy to say, that I don't have to live with. Mr. Nimzicki... you're fired.

President Thomas Whitmore

David Levinson: They're chasing us!
Captain Steven Hiller: Really, you think?

David Levinson: You really think you can fly that thing?
Captain Steven Hiller: You really think you can do all that bullshit you just said?

Captain Steven Hiller: I ain't heard no fat lady!
David Levinson: Forget the fat lady. You're obsessed with fat lady. Just get us out of here!

Constance: Haven't you ever wanted to be part of something special?

David Levinson: What do you mean, oops?
Captain Steven Hiller: Some jerk put this...

Gen. Gray: Are you all right?
President Thomas Whitmore: I saw... its thoughts. I saw what they're planning to do. They're like locusts. They're moving from planet to planet... their whole civilization. After they've consumed every natural resource, they move on... and we're next. Nuke 'em. Let's nuke the bastards.
