Event Horizon
Movie Quote Quiz

Miller: I want you cool, I want you calm, NOW.

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.
Miller: You just get your gear and get back on the Lewis and Clark, Doctor, or you'll find yourself walkin' home.
Dr. Weir: I am home.

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

Dr. Weir: Where we're going... we don't need eyes to see.

Dr. Weir: Our orders were specific.
Miller: Rescue the crew, salvage what's left of the ship. The crew is dead, doctor. Your ship killed them.
Dr. Weir: We came here to do a job.
Miller: WE'RE aborting, doctor.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the entire movie the size of the Event Horizon's interior versus that of its exterior is repeatedly off. Evidence of this is seen mostly with scenes that take place in the main access corridor. First off, it is made to seem that the ship has one central connecting tube, but in the exterior shots there are several tubes that make up the middle of the ship. This is pointed out when Miller is making his way across the ship to get to the air lock that Justin is about to open. Second, the length of the tube (heck even the whole ship) is too small in relation to how the ship appears from the outside. This is pointed out in a few different places in the movie - when the crew is up on bridge, then race all the way to the airlock in the middle of the main access corridor, where Justin has just closed the inner door and when the doctor is asked to go grab his med kit from medical, which is across the ship and he is gone only a few seconds, and also when Miller is running though the corridor to activate the explosive charges. Since the ship has no faster means of transportation, such as turbolifts or a tram system, they could not be covering the distance they appear to be covering in the movie.

Trivia: Many of the corridors in the Event Horizon are coffin shaped - perhaps foreshadowing the fact that it is a "death" ship?
