Well, I...it looks like a warning. I'm gonna go out after them.

Parker, will you just listen to the man?

Tom Skerritt

I can't see a goddamn thing.

An organism. Open the hatch.

Tom Skerritt

Please don't do that. Thank you.

If you have any trouble, I'll be on the bridge.

Sigourney Weaver

What would you like me to do?

Ian Holm

You were gonna leave us out there!

Veronica Cartwright

I was obeying a direct order. Remember?

Ian Holm

What kind of thing? I need a clear definition.

Sigourney Weaver

Oh, I see, you just broke it. Hmm?

Sigourney Weaver

Ripley, this is an order. Open that hatch right now, do you hear me?

Tom Skerritt

Even if it's against the law?
