Dr. Chapman: Find anything, Captain?
Hendry: Not a sign. We poked into every snowbank within miles.
Bob, Crew Chief: Barnes flushed a polar bear.
Cpl. Barnes: Sure did.
Dr. Chapman: Scare you?
Cpl. Barnes: Not after I saw it was only a bear.
Dr. Arthur Carrington: We owe it to the brain of our species to stand here and die... without destroying a source of wisdom.
Dr. Arthur Carrington: No pleasure, no pain... no emotion, no heart. Our superior in every way.
Ned "Scotty" Scott: Dr. Carrington, you're a man who won the Nobel Prize. You've received every kind of international kudos a scientist can attain. If you were for sale I could get a million bucks for you from any foreign government. I'm not, therefore, gonna stick my neck out and say you're stuffed absolutely clean full of wild blueberry muffins, but I promise my readers are gonna think so.
Hendry: I've given all the orders I want to give for the rest of my life.
Nikki: If I thought that was true I'd ask you to marry me.
Ned "Scotty" Scott: So few people can boast that they've lost a flying saucer and a man from Mars -all in the same day! Wonder what they'd have done to Columbus if he'd discovered America, and then mislaid it.
Dr. Arthur Carrington: There are no enemies in science, only phenomena to be studied.
Hendry: Wait a minute, Scotty. You won't need any boots. When it comes you go back with the others. You don't belong out here.
Ned "Scotty" Scott: I didn't belong at Alamein or Bougainville or Okinawa. I was just kibitzing. And I write a very good obit, a obituary to use.
Ned "Scotty" Scott: Here's the sixty-four dollar question - what do you do with a vegetable?
Nikki: Boil it.
Ned "Scotty" Scott: What did you say?
Nikki: Boil it... bake it... stew it... fry it?
Ned "Scotty" Scott: What if we haven't enough voltage?
Hendry: Just keep swinging at its arms.
Hendry: Do you really drink all those drinks?
Nikki: Um -hum.
Hendry: Every one of 'em? You didn't spill one?
Nikki: Uh -uh.
Hendry: Holy cats, I thought I was good.
