George Hoskins: Look, let me deal with the sordid details. They're right my street. You're happy with the ship. I'll leave that to you.
Bill Randall (skipper of 1087: Okay, I'm responsible for 1087. Then I'd better know what she's expected to do.
George Hoskins: Oooh! For Pete's sake, is the ship goin' to have a say in the kinds of jobs we take on?
Bill Randall (skipper of 1087: She won't ask any questions certainly.
George Hoskins: Like the ideal woman, aay? She does what you want when you want it. If we knew the way and could set a course for Hell, she'd go!


Frank Towns: I've lost five men, Lew. Gabriel in there, he's on the way, that'll be six. Are you asking me to try to kill the rest of them trying to get a deathtrap off the ground. I don't know... I don't know, Lew. It won't work... it just can't work.
Lew Moran: All right, then, it can't. Maybe it can't and we'll all be killed. But if there's just one chance in a thousand that he's got something, boy, I'd rather take it than just sit around here waiting to die.

Pinkie Brown: [the record - scratched when he tried to destroy it - suddenly jumps] ... I love you... I love you... I love you... I love you...
