Robert Maxwell : Look, the man's just presented his side of the argument!
Ham Tyler : There IS no argument! We either win, or we lose! There's no in-between!
Robert Maxwell : No! No! Because we're not talking about just the people here in this room! Look, be real clear, people: if we lose, then the WHOLE DAMN WORLD loses!
Juliet Parish : [tiredly] We're not fighting the same war anymore. The rules have changed now, it's escalated way out of control.
Chris Farber : Yeah, see... war has a tendency to do that, ma'am.
Ham Tyler : The Visitors came here to suck us dry. When they're finished with this planet, they're gonna take it like an empty beer can and toss it over their shoulder.
Juliet Parish : Nobody's calling them good guys, Tyler. No-one's appealing to their better nature. You can't win a war if you're extinct!
[she turns in appeal to the group]
Juliet Parish : We've got to think of another way!
Elias Taylor : [very quietly] There is no other way. There's no time. Look, if Martin knows about the Red Dust, then you can believe Diana does, too - and if she doesn't, then she will in a few days. Hey... hey, as... as ragged an' as ordinary as this little bunch is... we're the last shot before the buzzer.
Juliet Parish : 'Last' is exactly right.
Elias Taylor : [louder] Now if we attack - if we attack, at least we got a fightin' chance. We do nothing, we're signin' this planet's death warrant.
