Ogilvy: Come on out! We're friends.
Salvatore: That's right. We're friends. We welcome you. We're friends, yeah?

Sheriff Bogany: What is that gizmo?
Forrester: I think that gizmo is a machine from another planet.
Bogany: Better get word to the authorities. Look!
[They see the second cylinder fall.]
Forrester: Sheriff, you better get word to the military. You're gonna need them out here.

Gen. Mann: They'll probably move at dawn.

General Mann: According to intelligence from other nations, they're working toward some kind of plan. Now, what it may be isn't clear yet, simply because once they begin to move, no more news comes out of that area.

Sylvia: They seem to murder anything that moves.
Forrester: If they're mortal, they must have mortal weaknesses. They will be stopped, somehow.
