Aliens - a quote for every part of life

Post by Tim » June 30th, 2007, 5:42 pm

This movie just gets better and better after every viewing.

"They can bill me"

"This little girl survived longer than that with no weapons or training" - "so why don't you put her in charge?"

"Ripley, she doesn't have bad dreams cause she's just a piece of plastic."


My boss has been quoting stuff from this movie all week.

"Hey [redacted], do you want me to run this performance test on our corporate site tonight?"

"Well that depends, is this going to be a stand up fight, or another bug hunt?"

"Hey [redacted], so-and-so claims [blah]. It's going to totally mess up our deployment."

"Really? Man, how do I get out of this chicken shit outfit?!"

etc.

Great stuff. I'm still waiting for someone to say something truly outrageous in a meeting so I can drop the "Did IQs drop sharply while I was gone?" on them.

My personal favourite? "You know, I don’t know which species is worse. You don’t see them screwing each other over for a fucking percentage."

Surely the most overused lines have to be

"Game over man, game over!"

and

"Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure."

I use that last one all the time at work.

"The mostly come at night..... mostly."

I'm sure that was said many times at my last job in reference to the morning ritual of de-spamming of inboxes.
