Ripley: This is a maximum security prison, and you have no weapons of any kind?
Andrews: We have some carving knives in the abattoir, a few more in the mess hall. Some fire axes scattered about the place - nothing terribly formidable.
Ripley: That's all?
Andrews: We're on the honor system.
Ripley: Then we're fucked.

Aaron: Then you've got one inside of you.

Ripley: What's this eighty-five thing?
David: Couple of us sneaked a look at his personnel file the day he arrived. That's his IQ.

Andrews: Listen to me, you piece of shit! You screw with me one more time, I'll cut you in half!
Clemens: I'm sorry, I don't think I understand.

Boggs: Watch your step, brother.

Frank: Treat a queen like a whore and a whore like a queen. You can't go wrong.

Andrews: This is Rumor Control. Here are the facts.

Andrews: I'm afraid we'll have to assume there's a very good chance this simple bastard has murdered them.
Dillon: Now you don't know that! He's never lied to me! He's crazy, he's a fool, but he's not a liar.

Golic: It was a dragon! Feeds on minds. It was - nobody can stop it.

Andrews: We're 25 prisoners in this facility. All double-Y chromos. All thieves, rapists, murderers, child-molesters. All scum. Just because they have taken on religion doesn't make them any less dangerous. I try not to offend their convictions. I don't want to upset the order. I don't want ripples in the water. And I don't want a woman walking around, giving them ideas.
Ripley: I see. For my own personal safety.
Andrews: Exactly.

Dillon: Why should we put our ass on the line for you?
Ripley: Your ass is already on the line. The only question is, what're you gonna do about it?

Clemens: That's a bit uncharitable.

David: There's definitely something in here with us.

David: I have a problem with this.
Jude: What part?
David: The part where we're running around in the dark fucking maze with that thing chasing us.

Ripley: Are you attracted to me?
Clemens: In what way?
Ripley: In that way.
Clemens: Very direct.
Ripley: I've been out here a long time.

Dillon: I wanna get this thing, and I need you to do it! And if it won't kill you, then maybe that helps us fight it.

Dillon: You're all gonna die. The only question is how you check out. Do you want it on your feet? Or on your fuckin' knees... begging? I ain't much for begging! Nobody ever gave me nothing! So I say fuck that thing! Let's fight it.

Murphy: What kind of animal would do this to a dog?

David: I have a problem with this.
Jude: Which part?
David: The part where we're running around down here in the dark with that fucking thing chasing us.

Other mistake: The alien that comes out of the dog is a lot bigger than the actual dog just seconds after it appears. This only applies to the theatrical version, as in the extended version the alien comes out of an ox.

Trivia: Originally, the movie was going to be shot by cinematographer Jordan Cronenweth, but Cronenweth suffered Parkinson's Disease midway through filming and was let go by the line producer, being replaced by Alex Thomson. However, impressed by Cronenweth's work, David Fincher later worked with Cronenweth's son Jeff in nearly all of his future movies, resulting in two Academy Award nominations.

Question: After Ripley discovered that an alien queen was inside of her, why didn't she just kill herself immediately?

Answer: She didn't have the nerve to do it herself, especially since she doesn't have something like a gun where it can be done instantly. Even when backed into a corner by the Company, she still hesitates, she doesn't jump to her death immediately. The survival instinct is very powerful.

Answer: Early on, Ripley wanted Dillon to kill her after she learned she was carrying an alien embryo. He agreed he would, but only if she helped the inmates kill the other alien.

But the question is why didn't she kill herself as soon as she found out. As in on the spot? As soon as she discovered that an alien queen was growing inside of her, she went to find the xenomorph in hopes it would kill her but it didn't. It would have made more sense for her to take her life immediately as soon as she discovered a xenomorph queen was growing inside of her rather then wanting the xenomorph on the loose to do it or asking Dillon to.

I agree. It would have made more sense for her to just end her life right there rather going to Dillon after the fact and ask him to do it.
