When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

Walter: Follow the light. How do you feel, Daniels?
Walter: Any dizziness, nausea?
Daniels: No, I’m fine.
Branson: It’s a hell of a view, ain’t it?
Captain: It is pure majesty.
Tennessee: I don’t know what you’re talking about. It kind of spooks me out, some big old sea of nothing.
Walter: [to Daniels] Cryosleep will commence in one hundred and fifty-three minutes, allow one hour before taking the purgative, and please ensure to consume the requisite liquid and the vitamin pack.

[referring to Branson]

Crew Member #1: Yep.
Tennessee: Let’s party.
[as Tennessee is joking around with the other Covenant crew members]
Captain: Tennessee can be a jerk.
Crew Member #2: Why are you speaking so loudly, he’s right there?
Captain: I know, he can’t hear me, he’s drunk, but then he’s always drunk.
Crew Member #2: His wife is even drunker, have you seen that?
Crew Member #3: I heard about these crazy bugs just outside these colonial pumps, apparently they look like cockroaches the size of a giant poodle.

[after one of the crewmember starts choking Walter hits her on the back to help her]

Tennessee: So what about that speech, Daniels?
Captain: Well I have prepared…
Daniels: Sorry, yeah, Jake asked me to say something if it’s okay?
Daniels: You’ve all sacrificed so much to be here, to be a part of this. This is the first ever large scale colonization mission to come this far into our galaxy and making history. And everyone back on earth is really grateful for your hard work and your courage. I just want to say I couldn’t pick a better bunch of jerks to get marooned on a distant planet with. So, um, to the Covenant!
Crew Members: To the Covenant!
Woman: Let me out. Karis, please, open up!
Karis: I can’t do that. I have to keep the infection…
[the woman turns to see the man she’s locked up with is having some kind of fit]
Woman: Open the door!
[suddenly the back of the man’s body starts to crack open and blood spurts out, Karis runs off]
Woman: Let me out!
Daniels: Are you sure about this, captain?
Captain: How do you mean?
Daniels: I mean we don’t know what the fuck’s out there!
