Aliens


"It was a very beautiful ceremony. Lenore wrote her own vows. I cried. Like a baby. A hungry, angry baby."
Mister Universe

"You did it beautifully!"

"I'm sure that in 1985 plutonium is available in every corner drug store, but in 1955 it's a little hard to come by."

I loved seeing another of my favourite SERENITY quotes turn up.
The Planet of the Apes quotes were great.
You picked some classics. :)

Ah, that old Vulcan proverb. Planet of the Apes is classic. Over the top Charlton Heston makes that movie.

Good stuff. You really picked some hidden gems there. Planet of the Apes 2001? Star Trek IV? Nice ones.

Cough...it's from Star Trek VI...cough

Reid Kemper said...

I'm not much of a Star Trek fan, but that's a great quote.

Dave said...

I'm not much of a Nixon fan.

Arlee Bird said...

The Nixon mask continues to be one of the top selling masks in costume shops and for Halloween. Nixon had a great face for characture.
