At war with others, at peace with myself

 Street art, Southampton

I saw... its thoughts. I saw what they're planning to do. They're like locusts. They're moving from planet to planet... their whole civilization. After they've consumed every natural resource they move on... and we're next. Nuke 'em. Let's nuke the bastards.

Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. "Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!

Must go faster. Must go faster! Must go faster! Go, go, go, go!

If I had known I was gonna meet the president, I would've worn a tie. I mean, look at me. I look like a schliemiel.

Ma, listen, pack your stuff and head for Aunt Esther's. Don't argue with me; just go.

Haven't you ever wanted to be part of something special?  I was part of something special
Captain Steve Hiller:                        Oh! Elvis has left the building!
David Levinson [in Elvis voice]:     Oh, thank you very much.
                           [in his own voice]  Oh, I love you man!
