Alien Nation quotes

Detective Matthew Sikes: You're lucky you played the game with George.

Teacher: Can I talk to you for a minute? I was just thinking when it used to be three kinds of restrooms.
Susan Francisco: Three?
Teacher: Men, women and colored.
Susan Francisco: Really?
Teacher: I'm old enough to have seen them. But things do change, they really do change if you want them to badly enough. I remember this old black woman, Miss Jane Pittman. She used to pass a particular water fountain every day: the white folks' fountain. You know what she did one day? She went right up to it and took a drink. (laughs) But lord, all hell broke loose when she did. "A ni**** took a drink out of the white fountain. A ni**** done this, a ni**** done that." One became mayor of Los Angeles. One became mayor of Atlanta. Atlanta! And one ran for president. One will be president, someday. But it's hard to take that first drink. It takes lots of courage to be like Miss Jane.
Susan Francisco: At least they weren't afraid she'd turn into an insect.
Teacher: Honey, I can show you people today who still think black people have rabbit blood and Jewish people have horns. You don't look like no cockroach to me. Take a drink.

Ms. Purist: They're unnatural. They've already taking too many jobs, our jobs! If we let her in here now, there'll be a hundred more next week.
Protestor: We don't want them mixing with our kids. Their quarantine wasn't long enough. The ACLU got them released too soon. How do we know they're really safe?
Ms. Purist: I say we run them back to Slagtown!
Matt: Why stop with running them back to Slagtown, why don't we just kill them? (fires his gun again) Teach them a lesson. Keep them in their place. Keep America pure. (crowd cheers) We don't even need to paint little stars on them to recognize them, do we? (cheering stops) Hell, they'll be easy to round up. Look at them, they stand out even better than the Japs that we threw into concentration camps back in 1942. This will be a piece of cake. And if enough of us get together, it'll almost seem legal, won't it? Put little white pointy sheets on our heads and hang us a few Slags, huh? Let's start with this little one right here. (takes Emily's hand and winks at her) Just 'cause she's an American citizen, that doesn't make her a human being, does it? So what if she's a little brighter than some of our kids? We can beat that out of her. Discourage her enough, she'll give up. So what if she might have come up with a cure for cancer someday? She's not *civilized* like us. So why don't we just put a gun to her head and end it all right here, huh? (starts offering his gun to the crowd, but no one will take it) Come, pull trigger. Come on, take it. Come on! (to the rally leader) How about you, Ms. Purist? I know you want to come pull the trigger. Get down over here! Come on down! (Ms. Purist doesn't move) What, I have to do it myself? Okay. (co*** the hammer on his gun)
Protestor: No, we don't want her dead. We just want her back where she belongs.
Matt: (uncocks gun's hammer) She belongs *here*. (holsters his gun and turns to the crowd) Aren't you shamed of yourselves? (faces a black man in the crowd of protestors) Aren't *you*? (the protestors and the teachers come out to meet Matt and Emily) Anybody gives this little one any trouble answers to me, got it?
Principal: Yeah, I do.
Matt: (to Emily) You okay? (Emily nods) Good girl. Now, go in there and show them your stuff. (the teachers take Emily into the school and Matt turns back to the protesters) Party's over people. Anybody still here in three minutes will be under arrest for the violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Detective Matthew Sikes: Albert, just a sec. 700 women? Really?
Albert Einstein: Every year.
Detective Matthew Sikes: Tell me, how do you keep it... How do you keep it going?
Albert Einstein: I eat a lot of raw pancreas.

Susan Francisco: Are you always this pissy when you're conducting an investigation?
Detective George Francisco: Susan, I believe "pissy" is a vulgar word.
Susan Francisco: Really? Gee, I hear it used all the time.
