[Smitty uses a clamp to anchor Lewis and Clark to Event Horizon].

Dr. Weir: They're not your crew any more. They belong to the ship.

Dr. Weir: What was made public about the Event Horizon - that she was a deep space research vessel, that her reactor went critical, and that the ship blew up - none of that is true. The Event Horizon is the culmination of a secret government project to create a spacecraft capable of faster-than-light flight.
Smith: Uhm, excuse me. See, you can't actually do that.

Miller: What are you telling me, that this ship is alive?
Lt. Starck, Executive Officer: You wanted an answer, and it's the only one I've got.
Miller: No, what I want lieutenant, is to survive the next 10 hours.

Miller: Vacate! I want off this ship.
Dr. Weir: You can't leave. She won't let you.

Dr. Weir: I am home.

Miller: You miss me, you blow out the hull.
Dr Weir: What makes you think I'll miss?

Factual error: When D.J. is attacked by Dr. Weir, he is grabbed by the throat and is squeezed until his windpipe is broken, shown by the way he was breathing (or struggling to). When Weir seizes him again and throws him against a support beam, he screams in a way impossible for someone who just had his windpipe crushed.

Trivia: Pneumatic palm sanders were used as hatch door switches for the gravity drive room and the access-way leading to it. Do a Google image search for "Pneumatic Palm Sander" to see examples of the tool. It's a vintage or classic style that's used in the film. (00:26:45)

Chosen answer: The movie never explicitly says; but science is as yet unsure what happens to a given piece of matter once it crosses a black hole's event horizon, so who knows? The ship could have been thrown seven years forward in time, or far enough away that it took seven years for it to drift close to Neptune. Pick any explanation you like.
