Independence Day (1996)
Julius Levinson: All you need is love, John Lennon, smart
man, shot in the back very sad.
Russell: In the language of my generation up yours!
Dr. Okun: As you can imagine they don't let us out much.
President Whitmore: What do you want us to do? Captured
Alien: Die. Die.
Captain Steven Hiller: Oh, no. no, you are NOT shootin'
that green shit at me!
[Julius discards a styrofoam cup.] David Levinson: Hey,
you have any idea how long it takes for those cups to decompose?
Julius Levinson: If you don't move soon, I'm gonna start
[At the secret government lab.] President Whitmore: I don't
understand,where does all this come from? How do you get
funding for something like this? Julius Levinson: You don't
actually think they spend $20,000.00 on a hammer, $30,000.00
on a toilet seat do you?
David Levinson: Must go faster.
Julius Levinson: If I had known I was gonna meet the president
I would've worn a tie. Look at me, I look like a schliemiel.
President Whitmore: I saw... his thoughts. I saw what they're
planning to do. They're like locusts. They travel from planet
to planet, their whole civilization. After they've consumed
every natural rescource they move on. And we're next. Nuke
'em. Nuke the bastards.
Julius Levinson: Everyone's trying to get out of Washington,
and we're the only schmucks trying to get in.
Julius Levinson: If you're so smart, tell me something,
how come you go to M.I.T. for 8 years to become a cable
Steve Hiller: Let's try that again. David Levinson: Yes,
yes. Without the "oops."
[Connie left David to pursue a career] Connie: Haven't you
ever wanted to be part of something special? David: I was
part of something special
Capt. Steve Hiller: I ain't heard no fat lady! David Levinson:
Forget the fat lady. You're Obsessed with fat lady. Just
get us out of here!
David Levinson: You really think you can fly that thing?
Capt. Steve Hiller: You really think you can do all that
bullshit you just said?
David Levinson: They're firing at us!! Captain Steven Hiller:
Really, YOU THINK?!?
Russell Casse: I picked a helluva day to quit drinkin'.
President Whitmore: The only mistake I ever made was to
appoint a sniveling little weasel like you Secretary of
Defense. However, that is a mistake, I am happy to say,
that I don't have to live with. Mr. Nimzicki...you're fired.
Capt. Jimmy Wilder: Let's kick the tires and light the fires,
Captain Steven Hiller: Is that an earthquake? Jasmine Dubrow:
Not even a four pointer. Go back to sleep.
[People have gathered to welcome the aliens.] Alien groupie:
Oh god, I hope they bring back Elvis.
[After the aliens have attacked] Older Boy: [to his girlfriend]
This may be our last night on earth. You don't want to die
a virgin, do you?
Captain Steven Hiller: I'm just a little anxious to get
up there and whup E.T.'s ass.
[After smacking the alien in the head] Captain Steven Hiller:
Welcome to Earth!
Gen. Gray: Mr. President, I'd sure like to know what you're
doing. President Whitmore: I'm a combat pilot, Will. I belong
in the air.
President Thomas Whitmore: We can't be consumed by our petty
Steve Hiller: Y'know, this was supposed to be my weekend
off, but noooo. You got me out here draggin' your heavy
ass through the burnin' desert with your dreadlocks stickin'
out the back of my parachute. You gotta come down here with
an attitude, actin' all big and bad... and what the hell
is that smell? I could've been at a barbecue! But I ain't
Captain Steven Hiller: That's what I call a close encounter.
Secretary of Defense: I'm not Jewish. Julius Levinson: Well,
The President: Mankind. That word should have new meaning
for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences
anymore. We will be united in our common interest. Perhaps
it is fate that today is the fourth of July and you will
once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny,
oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We're
fighting for our right to live, to exist! And should we
win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as
an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared
in one voice, "We will not go quietly into the night! We
will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on!
We're going to survive! Today, we celebrate our Independence
Captain Steven Hiller: Look, I really don't think they flew
90 billion light years to come down here and start a fight.
Get all rowdy.
President Whitmore: Sir, regardless of what you may have
read in the tabloids, there have never been any spacecraft
recovered by our government. Take my word for it. There's
no Area 51. There's no recovered space ship. Albert Nimzicki:
Uh, excuse me, Mr. President. That's not *entirely* accurate.
David Levinson: What? Which part?
Jasmine Dubrow: There you go, thinking you're all that.
But you are not as charming as you think you are, sir. Captain
Steven Hiller: Yes I am.
David Levinson: They're bringing us in. Steven Hiller: When
the hell was you gonna tell me? David Levinson: Oops. Steven
Hiller: We're gonna have to work on our communication.
Reporter: Los Angeles, New York and Washington D.C. have
been left in ruins. Russel Casse: Good God! I've been sayin'
it. I've been sayin' it for ten damn years. Ain't I been
sayin' it, Miguel? Yeah, I've been sayin' it.
