D.J. Quotes in The Warriors (1979)
D.J.: Good news, Boppers: The big alert has been called off. It turns out that the early reports were wrong, all wrong. Now for that group out there that had such a hard time getting home, sorry about that. I guess the only thing we can do is play you a song.
[the Warriors theme song, "In the City", performed by Joe Walsh, plays]
D.J.: Here's an update, the Turnbull A.C.'s missed their chance, so there's still time for a bit hit. More news later.
D.J.: All right now, for all you boppers out there in the big city, all you street people with an ear for the action, I've been asked to relay a request from the Grammercy Riffs. It's a special for the Warriors, that real live bunch from Coney, and I do mean the Warriors. Here's a hit with them in mind.
D.J.: Be lookin' good, Warriors. All the way back to Coney. Ya hear me, babies? Good. Re-e-al good. Adios.
Ben McGewen: So whats your DJ name?
D.J.: Stephen Moulding.
Ben McGewen: Thats it, you need a proper Dj name. I wouldn't play to see Stephen Moulding. would you Rikki? See that name sucks dick.

D.J.: Why do keep calling this car Ocho? Ocho means eight. Can't you read the numbers?
Paco: Sure I can read the numbers. Five and three are eight. Anyone knows that.
Captain Blythe: Now How did you want to handle that?
D.J.: You mean pay for it?
Captain Blythe: Or did you plan to, uh, reassemble the stemware yourself?
Pete: It's not our responsiblity.
Captain Blythe: I'm your captain, judge and jury. I'll decide what's your responsiblity!
Chief Steward: Captain.
Captain Blythe: Hmm. The, uh, the cargo manifest states unequivocally that you, Peter Stancheck, are the sole owner of the car. You are the consignor and the consignee. Your car did the damage, ergo...
D.J.: Yeah, but Peter wasn't driving...
Captain Blythe: Start! I, uh, I have been advised by our public relations department to waive all charges of kidnapping. And smuggling illegal aliens into a foreign country.
Pete: Where's that kid, anyway?
Captain Blythe: In the storeroom, where he'll remain until the ship reaches Panama, at which time he will be turned over to the port authorities and returned to his native country. In the meantime, your automobile will be impounded until your obligations are met.
Chief Steward: Captain.
Captain Blythe: Uh, gentlemen. I do hope you've been enjoying the cruise so far. Remember, we have a shuffleboard tournament on main deck at four bells... And, uh, disco lessons in the lounge at six bells.
Pete: Thanks, anyway.
D.J.: I wasn't going to tell you this. I've been listening to the distress signal, and I, um, think I made a mistake in the translation.
[Plays the distress signal]
Miller: Go on.
D.J.: I thought it said "liberate me" - "save me." But it's not "me." It's "liberate tutame" - "save yourself." And it gets worse.
[Plays the distress signal again]
D.J.: There - I think that says "ex inferis." "Save yourself... from Hell." Look, if what Doctor Weir tells us is true, this ship has been beyond the boundaries of our universe, of known scientific reality. Who knows where it's been, what it's seen... or what it's brought back with it?
Miller: From Hell? You don't believe in that kind of stuff, do you?
D.J.: Whoever sent that message, he sure believed in Hell.
Miller: I'm telling you it was his voice I heard, he was calling to me. A young bosun named Eddie Corrick. We served on the Goliath together. When the O2 tanks ruptured, four of us made it to the lifeboat but Corrick was still on board the Goliath when the fire broke out.
Miller: Have you ever seen fire in zero gravity?
[D.J shakes his head]
Miller: It's beautiful. It's like liquid it... slides all over everything. Comes up in waves. And they just kept hitting him, wave after wave. He was screaming for me to save him.
D.J.: What did you do?
Miller: I did the only thing I could. I closed the lifeboat hatch, and I left him behind. I swore I'd never lose another man.
D.J.: I've known you a long time. You never told me that.
Miller: That's just it D.J, I - I never told *anybody*. But this ship knew about it! It knows my fears, it knows my secrets! Gets inside your head and... it shows you!
[after visiting the "other place" and waking from a coma, Justin has sealed himself in and airlock]
Peters: Justin, open the door.
Justin: Did you hear it?
Starck: [trying to override the lock] Keep him talking.
Peters: Yes. Yes, I heard it. Do you know what it is?
Justin: It shows you things... horrible things.
Peters: What does?
Justin: The dark inside me from the other place. I won't go back there. I won't.
Peters: No, Baby Bear. Come on, open the door.
D.J.: [enters] What's happening?
Starck: I don't think she can talk him down.
D.J.: She'd better. If he opens the airlock, he's going to turn inside out.
Peters: No, you stay with me.
Starck: I've almost got it.
Peters: You stay with me, Justin. Come on, now! Open that door!
Justin: If you could see the things I've seen, you wouldn't try to stop me.
