  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Tom: I never told anyone about your father. I didn't put it in any of my books. But when Eric Crawford came after you, I should have told you.
      Lisa: I don't know if I would have believed you. So, this Crawford came after me because I'm...one-quarter alien?
      Tom: Does make you pretty interesting.

    • Lisa: You said you'd tell me about these people, why you think they're looking for me.
      Tom: The man that came into your house, his name was Eric Crawford. His father was an army colonel. His name was Owen Crawford. And he came after your father. Came after Jacob. Your Aunt Becky and I fooled him into thinking that Jake was dead, but I guess that Eric figured it out.
      Lisa: But why was Owen Crawford looking for my dad? Uh... This has to do with the things you write about.
      Tom: See? You already knew. You knew the first time you called me.
      Lisa: And you said one day you'd explain it all to me.
      Tom: Yeah, well, I think you've had enough excitement for one day, don' t you?

    • Allie: (narrating) My mom says that life is like a roller coaster ride. There are ups and downs, there are big scares and slow builds and places where it levels out. The only difference with this roller coaster is that every time it stops, you get off in some place totally different from where you got on.

    • Allie: (narrating) Sometimes the best way to move into the unknown is to take familiar steps. Small steps. To do ordinary things to deal with something that is in no way ordinary. We're always going someplace new, all the time. Familiar things just let us pretend that we aren't moving into unfamiliar territory. You take those small, familiar steps, and you try to be honest. Not to live as if nothing has changed but still to go on with your life. But there are times when what you need is a piece of how things used to be.

    • Allie: (narrating) My mom told me once that when you're afraid of something, what you want more than anything else is to make it go away. You want your life back to the way it was before you found out that there was something to be afraid of. You want to build a high wall and live your old life behind it. But nothing ever stays the same. It's not your old life at all, but your new life with a wall around it. Your choice is not about going back to the way things were. Your choice is about hiding, or about going right to the heart of the thing that scares you.

    • Allie: (narrating) People say that when we grow up we kick at everything we've been told. We rebel against the world our parents have worked so hard to bring us into. That part of growing up is kicking at the ties that bind. But I don't think that's why we kick at all. I think we kick when we find out that our parents don't know much more about the world that we do. They don't have all the answers. We rebel when we find out that they've been lying to us all along. That there isn't any Santa Claus at all.

    • Jacob: (to Lisa) Love you, sweetie. Every day and twice on Sundays.

    • Allie: (narrating) Is every moment of our lives built into us before we're born? If it is, does that make us less responsible for the things we do, or is the responsibility built in, too? After you hit the ball, do you stand and wait to see if it goes out, or do you start running and let nature take it's course?

    • Chet: Well, as expected, they pulled our plug.
      Eric: What are they going do? All our evidence, all our research is gone.
      Chet: I thought I made a pretty good argument. "Senator," I said "the reason we have nothing to show you is that it was plucked from our slimy little hands by a flying saucer. You can't deny that. Right out of the sky, and pluck."
      Eric: Too bad we couldn't find Charlie Keys.
      Chet: You know what burns my ass? I'll tell you what burns my ass. If we'd gotten any funding at all, I could have gotten that positioning system running. We could have tracked Charlie Keys by that thing in his head and found him or anyone else taken in 24 hours.
      Eric: What are you going to do now?
      Chet: Couple of buddies of mine from Yale are going into biotech. How about you?
      Eric: I just keep picturing Tom Clarke smiling that smug smile of his and saying, "Still don't know how it flies, do you?"
      Chet: What keep picturing is his sister dumping you.
      Eric: I still want to know what made Tom Clarke a believer.
      Chet: You could have had your answer, but you thought with "little Eric." "Hey little buddy where do you want to go?"
      "Over to Becky's house." "Okay." "Hey, let's take her to see the aliens." "Good idea. That'll really impress her."
      Eric: My own personal foibles aside I still want the answer to that. I want to what changed his mind.
