Compendium of 50's Sci-Fi movie quotes: add yours!

Inspired by this recent thread, I added The Mole People to my Netflix queue. It had some great lines, including these:

I’m sure you have some favorite lines from the golden age of Sci-Fi movies…here’s your chance to share!

Another one of them new worlds. No beer, no women, no pool parlors, nothin’. Nothin’ to do but throw rocks at tin cans, and we gotta bring our own tin cans.
Cookie on Forbidden Planet

“Them! Them!”

Forbidden Planet does have a nice quotes page.

Commander John J. Adams: "Nice climate you have here. High oxygen content. "
Robby the Robot: "I seldom use it myself, sir. It promotes rust. "
“Monsters, John. Monsters from the Id.”

From Invasion Of The Saucer Men (1957): A couple of teenagers run over an alien. They ran to find a telephone or something, and when they got back to the car they saw aliens bashing it. When the cops showed up they found a human body. The kids figured out that the aliens bashed the car so as to make it look as if they’d hit a human.

‘And we thought they were mad at the car!’

“Whmmmmmm–ping, Whmmmmmm–ping, Whmmmmmm–ping, …”

From a whole lot them!

“Your race has no women. It can’t have children. It will die out!”

I Married a Monster from Outer Space

The Thing from Another World

Lt. Ken McPherson: What if he can read our minds?
Eddie: He’ll be real mad when he gets to me.

“Greetings, my friend. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives.” - Plan 9 From Outer Space

Also from Plan 9: ‘You see? You see? Your stupid minds! Stupid! Stupid!’

The DVD of The Mole People also has the classic (?) Tarantula

The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951): ‘Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!’

On The Beach (1959):
'It’s all over now, isn’t it?
'Yes, it’s all over. ’

This Island Earth (1955):
‘It’s only Neutron. We call him that because he’s so positive.’

The Blob (1958):
‘What is it?’
'I don’t know, but one thing’s for certain, if it can kill Doctor Hallen it can kill somebody else. ’

20 Million Miles to Earth (1957):
‘Why is it always, always so costly for Man to move from the present to the future?’

“If he’s seeing monsters, he’s had too much saki.”-Godzilla

Beat me to this one.

Although his previous line is also good. ‘A beam of sunlight is made up of many atoms!’

"They’re here already! You’re next! You’re next, You’re next…! "

Stanley Driscoll: Is the baby asleep yet, Sally?
Nurse Sally Withers: No, but she will be soon. And there’ll be no more tears.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers, of course

I’ll bet you already know this, but… check out the ending of Tarantula. The jet pilot who napalms the spider is non other than Clint Eastwood. I don’t remember if you can see his face behind the oxygen mask.

IF I remember correctly, this was his very first appearance in a movie; his first speaking appearance followed in The Creature Walks Among Us. I might have them switched.

No, Eastwood is unrecognizable. He supposedly have a line, but it’s hard to tell if it’s him or just a voiceover.

And Tarantula is a pretty good movie overall – another Jack Arnold classic.

“Easy enough to talk of soul and spirit and existential worth, but not when you’re three feet tall.”

Another line from The Thing, when one of the scientists explains that the Thing is more vegetable than animal, a reporter says "An intellectual carrot. The mind boggles. "

Yeah, Clint has that oxygen mask-thing over the bottom half of his face, you can’t tell if he’s really speaking or not. It does kind of sound like his voice, though.

I was reading the bio of Tarantula’s lovely co-star, Mara Corday, and was delighted to see that she became friends with Eastwood and had parts in some of his later movies.

But, back to the topic at hand…The Tingler isn’t strictly Sci-Fi, but I figure we can stretch the category a bit:
