Man, what are you doing with a gun in space?

Chick

Lev Andropov: No, I never saw Star Wars.

You know we're sitting on four million pounds of fuel, one nuclear weapon and a thing that has 270,000 moving parts built by the lowest bidder. Makes you feel good, doesn't it?

Rockhound

Harry, the clock on that nine-foot nuclear weapon is ticking.

Chick

Harry Stamper: Come on, God, just a little help. It's all I'm asking.
Max: I think we're close enough, He might have heard ya.

Harry Stamper: For god's sakes think about what you're doin'. Why are you listening to someone that's a hundred thousand miles away? No one down there can help us and if we don't get this job done, then everybody's gone.
Chick: forty two seconds
Harry Stamper: I have been drilling holes in the earth for thirty years. And I have never, *never* missed a depth that I have aimed for. And by God, I am not gonna miss this one. I will make 800 feet.

Dan: Well, our object collison budget's about a million dollars. That allows us to track about 3% of the sky, and beg'n your pardon sir, but it's a big-ass sky.

Armageddon Quotes

You want to compare brainpans? I won the Westinghouse prize when I was 12, big deal. Published at 19, so what. I got a double doctorate from MIT at 22, Chemistry and Geology.
