Major Walsh, it is an event sociologique.

Claude Lacombe

Ronnie, if I don't do this, THAT'S when I'm going to need a doctor.

Roy Neary

Claude Lacombe: Mr. Neary, what do you want?
Roy Neary: I just want to know that it's really happening.

[contemplating the lump shape] This means something. This is important.

Roy Neary

I know this sounds crazy, but ever since yesterday on the road, I've been seeing this shape. Shaving cream, pillows... Dammit! I know this. I know what this is! This means something. This is important.

Roy Neary

I guess you've noticed something a little strange with Dad. It's okay, though. I'm still Dad.

Roy Neary

Well they're not moon burns, goddamnit.

Roy Neary

You can come and play now.

Barry Guiler

Roy Neary: Hey, you know what's playing tonight? Pinocchio! You guys have never seen Pinocchio, you're in luck!
Brad Neary: Aw, who wants to see some dumb cartoon rated 'G' for kids?
Roy Neary: How old are you?
Brad Neary: Eight.
Roy Neary: You wanna be nine?
Brad Neary: Yeah.
Roy Neary: Then you're going to go see Pinocchio tomorrow night.

Ronnie Neary: Roy, that is a terrific way to win over your children.
Roy Neary: I'm not serious, I'm just saying that I grew up with Pinocchio, and if kids are still kids, they're going to eat it up.

Okay, let's have a vote. Tomorrow night you can play Goofy Golf, which is a lot of standing in line and shoving and pushing, and probably getting a 'zero,' or you can see Pinocchio, which is a lot of furry animals and magic, and you'll have a wonderful time. Okay? So let's vote.
