My 10 favorite SF Movie Quotes

Inspired by the (somewhat lame) list of 100 best movie quotes from Premiere (were they even trying?) that I found via a thread on the Agony Booth's forums, and in the spirit of my prior top ten list, I decided to compile a top-ten of SF movie quotes.


1. Take your stinking paws off of me, you damned dirty ape! - Planet of the Apes
2. It's alive! - Frankenstien
3. Wake up, time to die. - Blade Runner
4. Use the force, Luke. - Star Wars
5. Soylent Green is people! - Soylent Green
6. Gort! Klaatu barada nikto! - The Day the Earth Stood Still
7. E.T. phone home. - E.T. the Extraterrestrial (BTW, isn't that title redundant?)
8. Kaaaaaaaaaaaahn! - Star Trek II: Wrath of Kahn (IMHO: best of the movie franchise)
9. Open the pod bay doors, HAL. - 2001: a Space Odyssey
10. Nuke'em from orbit, it's the only way to be sure. - Aliens

(honorable mention)

11. Want to play a game? - War Games

Any thoughts or quotes on "Firefly"/"Serenity"?

I personally can't think of one I'd class up with the above. One of the things I like about the above quotes is that all of them (ok, except the Blade Runner one :) are almost a micro synopsis of the film.

Gotcha. I would have argued for, "I aim to misbehave," but that could just as easily be a porn-movie line as a "Serenity" line.

Nary a Godzila movie in sight...
