Jack Swigert: [about to turn power back on] Ken, there's an awful lot of condensation on these panels. What's the story of them shorting out?
Ken Mattingly: Umm... We'll just have to take that one at a time, Jack.
Jack Swigert: Like trying to drive a toaster through a car wash.

It's just a little medical mutiny, Doc. I'm sure the boys are still with us. Let's cut them a little slack, okay?

Jim Lovell: [Tearing off his biomeds] Let's see how he likes this. I am sick and tired of the entire western world knowing how my kidneys are functioning!
Dr. Chuck: Flight, we just lost Lovell!
William 'Bill' Pogue, CAPCOM: 13, Houston. Jim, we just had a bottoming out on your biomeds.
Jim Lovell: I'm not wearing my biomeds.
William 'Bill' Pogue, CAPCOM: Okay, Jim. Copy that.

We just lost the moon.

Jim Lovell

Henry Hurt: Look, I, um, I realize how hard this is, Marilyn, but the whole world is caught up in this, it's historic-...
Marilyn Lovell: No, Henry! Those people don't put one piece of equipment on my lawn. If they have a problem with that, they can take it up with my husband. He'll be HOME... on FRIDAY!

Gene Kranz

Marilyn Lovell: Blanche, Blanche, these nice young men are going to watch the television with you. This is Neil Armstrong, and this is Buzz... Aldrin.
Neil Armstrong: Hi.
Blanche Lovell: Are you boys in the space program too?

So long, Earth. Catch you on the flip side.

Jack Swigert

Jim Lovell: Just a little while longer Freddo. Just a little while longer, we're gonna hit that water in the South Pacific. Open up that hatch. It's 80 degrees out there.
Fred Haise, Sr.: 80 degrees.

Marilyn Lovell: Naturally, it's 13. Why 13?
Jim Lovell: It comes after 12, hon.
