Best Quotes from Trailer:

 

John F. Kennedy: [voice] No man can fully grasp how far and how fast we have come. There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation may never come again. As we set sail, we ask God’s blessing on the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked.  This nation will continue to be a pioneer in the new frontier of space.


 

Voice #1: Each passing year our estimate of the probability of life in space increase. More and more scientists feel that contact is no longer something beyond our dream but is a natural event in the history of mankind that will perhaps occur in the lifetime of many of us.


 

Voice #2: The manner in which we first meet life beyond earth may determine the character of all our subsequent relations. Let us never forget the fatal impact we’ve had upon innumerable people on this earth. People who trusted us, befriended us, and who we destroyed by our thoughtlessness. The life we know. Perhaps that is where we ought to begin, with ourselves.


 

Jack Harrison: Let’s see it.
[a spinning rover moving towards Jack]
Hugh: It’s going to hit you.
Jack Harrison: No, it’s not.
Hugh: Yes it is.
Jack Harrison: Come here. Come here, come here, come here.
Crew Member #1: Tell the committee, the sample is safe and sound.


 

Jack Harrison: There have been rovers on Mars for twenty years, I wonder what this one’s found.


 

Hugh: The sample is a large single cell, unmistakably biological. The first inconvertible proof of life beyond earth.
Jack Harrison: You’re finally a daddy.  It’s going to be a big custody battle over this one.
John McKay: It’s beautiful.


 

Hugh: The mission’s primary goal has been achieved. We’re looking at a large single cell, biological. I’d hate to jump the gun, but I think it’s time. We’re looking at the first proof of life beyond earth.
Jack Harrison: You’re finally a daddy.  It’s going to be a big custody battle over this one.
[the others laugh]


 

[referring to the alien organism]
John McKay: It’s beautiful.

Jack Harrison: Hugh!
[as Jack tries to open the door to the lab]
Crew Member #2: No, no, we’re not going in there!
Jack Harrison: Get your goddamn hand of me now!
[the other crew members start panicking]


 

Crew Member #1: The specimen’s location is unknown.
Jack Harrison: We don’t know what it is.
Crew Member #2: If this ever gets back to earth we risk all human life.


 

Crew Member #2: You don’t know what it can do!
