Corporal Ferro Quotes in Aliens (1986)


Corporal Ferro Quotes:

  • Corporal Ferro: [as dropship enters atmosphere] We're in the pipe, five by five.

  • Private Vasquez: [after barely surviving the alien surprise attack] All right. We got seven canisters of CM-20. I say we roll them in there and nerve gas the whole fuckin' nest.

    Corporal Hicks: It's worth the try, but we don't know if that's gonna affect them.

    Private Hudson: Look let's just bug out and call it even, okay? What are we even talking about this for?

    Ripley: I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    Private Hudson: Fuckin' A!

    Burke: Hold on, hold on just a second. This installation has a substantial dollar value attached to it.

    Ripley: They can *bill* me.

    Burke: Okay, I know this is an emotional moment for all of us, okay? I know that. But let's not make snap judgments, please. This is clearly... clearly an important species we're dealing with and I don't think that you or I, or *anybody*, has the right to arbitrarily exterminate them.

    Ripley: [laughs feebly] Wrong.

    Private Vasquez: Yeah. Watch us.

    Private Hudson: Hey, maybe you haven't been keeping up on current events, but we just got our asses kicked, pal!

    Burke: Look. I'm not blind to what's going on, but I cannot authorize that kind of action. I'm sorry.

    Ripley: Well, I believe that Corporal Hicks... has authority here.

    Burke: Corporal Hicks has...

    Ripley: This operation is under military jurisdiction and Hicks is next in chain of command. Am I right, Corporal?

    Corporal Hicks: Yeah... yeah, that's right.

    Burke: Yeah... Look, Ripley, this is a multi-million dollar installation, okay? He can't make that kind of decision. He's just a grunt! Uh, no offense.

    Corporal Hicks: [coldly] None taken.

    Corporal Hicks: [into headset] Ferro, do you copy?

    Corporal Ferro: [on comms] Standing by.

    Corporal Hicks: Prepare for dust-off. We're gonna need immediate evac.

    Corporal Ferro: [on comms] Roger. On our way.

    Corporal Hicks: I say we take off, nuke the site from orbit.

    [looks to Ripley]

    Corporal Hicks: It's the only way to be sure.

    [Ripley smiles]

  • Private Vasquez: Hey, mira, who's Snow White?

    Corporal Ferro: She's supposed to be some kinda consultant. Apparently she saw an alien once.

    Private Hudson: Whoopee-fuckin'-do. Hey, I'm impressed.
