    • Llanar: Dr. Alders. Would you do us the honor of joining us? Michael: I-I don't deserve to. Kadmis: No, Michael. None of us is innocent here. Come.

    • Kadmis: Michael, do you suppose that human souls and those of N'Tal go to the same place when they die? Michael: I don't know? Kadmis: If they do I shall look for your friend and tell her how much she is missed.

    • Michael: (about the N'Tal) I can't help feeling we're just cattle to them.

    • Jaru: These people are afraid. And fear translates here as it does throughout the universe, into hatred.

    • Kadmis: I wish we were coming to you as explorers, adventurers seeking out other lifeforms for the pleasures of mutual discovery. Instead, we come to you as refugees, exiles from a planet rendered uninhabitable by our own negligence. We have come to Earth seeking help. Kelly: What...what do you need from us? Kadmis: Your dead. Give us your dead.
