Top Ten Horror/Science Fiction Movie Quotes

This blogfest sponsored by Ellie Garrat.
Much thanks to Ellie for hosting a great blogfest. All of my quotes come from science fiction movies. Shocker, huh? Mostly these are things said in my household over and over again.
Never give up. Never Surrender
Jason Nesmith: GalaxyQuest

Luke, I am your father.
Darth Vader: The Empire Strikes Back

She's beginning to damage my calm.
Jayne Cobb: Serenity.

Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
Princess Leia: Star Wars

You Klingon bastards. You killed my son.
The Kirk / Star Trek III: The Search for Spock

Planet of the Apes 1968
Taylor: Oh my God... I'm back. I'm home. All the time it was... we finally really did it. [screaming] YOU MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP! OH, DAMN YOU! GODDAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!

It's full of stars.

And this - one of the greatest speeches ever from Independence Day:

Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. "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 interests. Perhaps it's 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 are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day 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 Day!

This one still makes us laugh for a good 5 minutes, because this line is blurted out, out of nowhere. Granted, much of the 1st half of this movie has no plot. That's what makes it entertaining. That and the dude that jumps out of the ship and goes 'splat' on Mars. I consider it the funniest scene in all of sci fi. 

The quote: "Do you know what day it is? Why it's Christmas, Lucy." Assignment Outerspace. Want to know more? Click HERE. You can bet I heard that line a lot in December.

Do you have a favorite quote / scene? Thanks for popping in!
