Below are some of the best quotes from the movie which the fans remember word to word. After all this time? Always!
What could a rescue team member in space wish for other than a lucky star? This brilliant line was said by Ellen Ripley. The perfect pauses in between each word and the brief yet complete statement makes it one of the best quotes. Say it to your lover! Say it to your child! This quote fits almost everywhere!
2. "Bring back life form, priority one, all other priorities are rescinded."
For all those Sci-Fi fans who fantasize about outer space battles and apocalypse, this quote can turn out to be everything! Said by the robot Ash, this quote perfectly reflects the plot of the movie in a single line-the importance of life. Human life.
3. "I admire its purity. A survivor. Unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality."
Said by Ash, this quote is definitely our favorite out of the entire script. This portrays the attraction in a being who has survived all kinds of hardships with the sole purpose of living on without being deluded by need of revenge or satisfying its anger.
4. "This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off."
This has got to be the most sentimental quote from the movie where Ripley signs off for good after all his team members are dead and he’s the lone survivor.
5. "It's a robot. Ash is a god damn robot."
The genuine, easy to understand, surprise in the midst of that life and death crisis told by Parker is strangely hilarious to who is watching from a screen!
