  • Quotes

    • Mike Ryan: I'm in position. What a sight! It's round, it's huge, it's black. Boy, is it black!

    • Kano: But Computer will have to be deactivated for the force field.
      Bergman: Yes, well, it can do with a rest.

    • Bergman: It's an extraordinary thing, how we've survived. I put the probability through the computer. I thought the computer was going to blow up figuring the odds. They're just about infinite.
      Koenig: Victor, if you're trying to cheer me up, you're not succeeding.

    • Helena: Sandra...
      Sandra: I will be all right.
      Helena: Sure you will. I remember when I was a little girl, I was afraid of the dark. Isn't that funny?
      Sandra: And I was afraid of doctors.

    • Koenig: Do you have any idea what'll happen to us inside the black sun?
      Bergman: Whatever it is, I just hope it's interesting.
