Movie Quote Quiz

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Kevin: This thing is really pissed off.

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

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: 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.

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.

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.

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.

Continuity mistake: Just after the doctor started the post mortem on that little girl, the front of his gown is covered with blood. Yet, a few seconds later, after the two other guys appear, his gown looks better, with less blood. And during the whole post mortem scene, the blood spot actually changes its size a few times. (00:17:55 - 00:19:55)

Trivia: The plot of the movie is a combination of two spec scripts written for the film - one was by David Twohy (Riddick) who wrote a script set on a prison planet, and another by Vincent Ward, set on a monastery planet with the same characters and basic plot. Despite this, neither received credit for the screenplay (Although Ward received story credit).

Question: How did the alien egg get on board the Sulaco? I thought it was by the Queen but she did not have that organ that she was connected to when we first see her and so she couldn't reproduce eggs.

Answer: Agreed the Queen could have stowed the eggs away on her body as Alien bodies, especially one her size, could easily have a couple of eggs hidden upon her, and we would not know. They are masters of disguise these creatures and can merge in with their own environments or others...what's to say an egg can't look like part of the Queen's body? In addition, could Facehuggers not attach themselves to the Queen's body and merge with it somehow? Flatten themselves against her skin maybe?

Answer: As we don't know the precise details of the Alien reproductive cycle, we don't know for a fact that the Queen would be unable to produce eggs without the sac seen in the film. The only other possibility is that somebody got the egg up there somehow. The only possible candidate would seem to be Bishop, who would have had to somehow have got the egg from somewhere, and flown it up to the Sulaco while Ripley was off rescuing Newt. There doesn't seem to have been time for this, so the only remaining option seems to be that they did indeed arrive with the Queen in some fashion, either laid while up there or, possibly more plausibly, rescued intact from the destruction caused by Ripley and carried somewhere on the Queen's body.
