  • Quotes

    • Larry: We've got five... somethings on the monitor. Could it be a graboid, or could it be something worse.
      Dr. Debevic: Drop your socks and grab our boxers gentleman, we got work to do.
      Twitchell: (pointing to Dr. Debevic) Friend of Gummers?

    • Twitchell: Wait a second, wait a second. I was told, there's another Graboid out here, bigger than the Loch Ness monster, rampaging around, eating hundreds of fence posts and stuff.
      Tyler: Who told you that?
      Twitchell: (points to Larry) Obi-Wan Kedork over here. So what are they, if not El Blanco and his friends?
      Tyler: I don't know. But I do know that Graboids do not eat wood.
      Twitchell: Wait a minute, they don't eat wood? They eat cows, they eat people, they eat burros you said they ate you car. But somehow they draw the line at wood!

    • Twitchell: (seeing a fireball) It's either amazingly good news, or unbelievably bad.

    • Nancy: It was good of you to stay here, Twitch.
      Twitchell: It was easier then going home to the wife. (pause) Just kidding. It's my valley too. Besides, I was ashamed to steal one of your cars.

    • Larry: I know, I know - I didn't listen to you, but you're just going to have to get used to it.
      Tyler: I was used to it from the moment I met you.

    • Twitchell: It's time we get the frick outta here!

    • Twitchell: Tell you what I'm planning, since I am the authority figure here. First of all I'm going to put a siren on that damned Graboid so we know where it is. Second, I'm going to rename this place, like Wacky Valley, or Pain in My Ass Land.
      Tyler: I'm fine - how are you?
      Twitchell: Suicidal. And the only thing keeping me from pulling the trigger is that my insurance isn't paid up, and Gummer isn't here to spew his anti-government invective.

    • Larry: What's (Burt) doing in Idaho? I won't tell a soul.
      Tyler: Really? It's a damned spacecraft. They're think maybe Venusians. They needed Burt's expertise in tracking the escaped aliens. (long pause) Just kidding.
