"Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away?"
Ripley addressing the Weyland-Yutani review board.

"Some honch in a cushy office on Earth says go look at a grid reference. We look. They don't say why, and I don't ask. I don't ask because it takes two weeks to get an answer out here, and the answer is always "Don't ask!""
Al Simpson describing the Weyland-Yutani orders that led to the colony becoming infested with xenomorphs.

"There's some juicy colonists' daughters we have to rescue from their virginity."
Sgt Apone's brief to the Marines.

Hudson: Is this gonna be a standup fight, sir, or another bughunt?
Gorman: All we know is that there's still no contact with the colony, and that a xenomorph may be involved.
Frost: Excuse me sir, a-a what?
Gorman: A xenomorph.
Hicks: It's a bughunt.

Vasquez: Look man, I only need to know one thing: where they are.
Drake: Yeah Vasquez!
Vasquez: Anytime, anywhere.
Hudson:' Yeah, right. Someone said "aliens" she thought they said "illegal aliens", signed up!
Vasquez: Fuck you, man.
Hudson: Anytime, anywhere...
Ripley: Are you finished!? (to Vasquez) I hope you're right. I really do. ... Because just one of those things managed to wipe out my entire crew in less than twenty-four hours! And if the colonists have found that ship, there's no telling how many have been exposed. Do you get it?

Hudson: How do I get out of this chickenshit outfit?
Apone: You secure that shit, Hudson!

PFC Hudson: I'm ready, man, check it out. I am the ultimate badass! State of the badass art! You do not wanna fuck with me. Check it out! Hey Ripley, don't worry. Me and my squad of ultimate badasses will protect you! Check it out! Independently targeting particle beam phalanx. Vwap! Fry half a city with this puppy. We got tactical smart missiles, phase-plasma pulse rifles, RPGs, we got sonic electronic ball breakers! We got nukes, we got knives, sharp sticks...

Gorman: We're not making that out too well. What is it?
Hudson: You tell me, I only work here.

Gorman: Hicks, meet me at the south lock. We're coming in.
Hudson: He's comin' in. I feel safer already.

"I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure."

"That's it, man! Game over man, game over!"
PFC Hudson panicking on LV-426.

"We're on an express elevator to Hell, going down!"
—- PFC Hudson
