    I'm not sure how many of you love the movie Galaxy Quest, but I thought it would be nice to talk about how it's one of the best Sci-Fi comedies out there.

    What's you're favorite Galaxy Quest Quote, Moment, joke, ect. ?

    I'll go first...

    I like the scene that was cut, when Alex (Dr. Lazarus) was taken to see his quarters, and the bathroom is this horrid spiky chair with tubes.

    Also, when they are in the core room, and the ships about to explode, Jason and Gwen are all romantic and such... The first time I nearly cried when the computer said 'ONE'. Then I laughed as hard as I could...

    I like when Tim Allen uses the communicator to contact the geek (paraphrased):

    Geek - "Listen, I know that the show isn't real, I'm not an idiot"

    Tim - "It's real"

    Geek - "Oh my God I knew it!"


    Haven't seen the movie in ages. Gonna have to watch it again. :)

    Gwen DeMarco: Fred, you had a part people loved. I mean, my TV Guide interview was six paragraphs about my * and how they fit into my suit. No one bothered to ask me what I do on the show.
    Fred Kwan: You were... the umm, wait a minute, I'll think of it...
    Gwen DeMarco: I repeated the computer, Fred

    Believe it or not, for me the most powerful moment of the movie is when Quellec (sp?) dies in Alexander's arms. It actually brings tears to my eyes when Alexander recites the line he loathes to say.

    However one of the best "gags"---

    "You guys came! Who wants the grand tour?"

    2 favs of mine both are from sigorney.

    when she sees the Gnashers for the first time and she says "well screw that"

    but we all know what she really said!

    and then when she says she has only one job and that is to repeat the computer "OKAY!"

    Well, the Protector got super-accelerated coming out of the black hole and just, like, nailed the atmosphere at Mach 15, which you guys know is pretty unstable, obviously, so we're gonna help Laredo guide it on the vox ultra-frequency carrier and use Roman candles for visual confirmation.

    "I remember that sound. It's a bad sound!"

    "Did you guys ever WATCH the show?" That's my favorite, I often state it when watching later ST shows.

    They even made fun of the guy who hosted the Creation cons back in the nineties.

    I tell friends who never attended a ST con, watch galaxy Quest. That will give you a glimpse into that world.

    I got a lot of the jokes in that film, but I would love to know some of the insider jokes.

    I think they didn't do anything due to the legal risks. The ST people are a bit sue happy, and I heard some of the people involved in ST did not enjoy being made fun of(even though they deserved it).

    Funny, before my wife and I were married we went to the theater to see that and I walked out going, "My god, that was terrible!". Then it started to play on TV and I kept watching, and then I slowly started to like it, until I finally decided to buy it. I love that movie now, especially seeing Raine Wilson from the Office and Sam Rockwell in there. I guess not being a Star Trek fan and understanding the Star Trek universe stopped me from getting the parody of it at first.

    My favorite line is from Sam Rockwell, when he turns to the group on the planet and says, "Did any of you even watch the show!", and of course his "rudimentary lathe" quote.

    I also love Tony Shaloob's face when they all get transported the very first time, and everyone is freaked out, except him, the expression on his face was priceless.

    I love this movie, and I always catch myself quoting it.

    "I know, I'll put my hands to my mouth and go CAW CAW!"

    "What do we have these for?!" *holds up communicator

    "I....I'm sorry...."


    "This way...oh um..wait...this way"

    "You were holding it upside down!?"

    "Shut up..."

    "For a minute I actually thought you were smart with all that stuff on!"

    There were actually a few moments in the movie where their lips read one thing and they said a different. Hers was the most obvious. I know there was a line in the begining from Laredo when they are backstage and he says: "You are so full of it man", when his lips read: "You are so full of **** man", something like that. They must of been going for a SOLID PG-13 rating.

    I do get teary at the "By Grabthars hammer death scene"

    "I see you managed to get your shirt off"

    "You scene stealing hack"

    This movie is just entirely too much fun with its content and has so many great scenes/lines. Just reading the posts makes me chuckle all over again. Bring on the historical documents.

    What's wrong with her? Doesn't she talk?
    Her translator is broken. (Noise)
    Okie Dokie then.

    The amount of "homework" the writers did for this film really is amazing-

    For instance the Beryllium Sphere (which is the equivalent of Star Trek's Dilithium Crystals).

    I always knew what the Sphere was "supposed" to represent, however not only is Beryllium an actual element (metal) on Earth, it comes right after Lithium on the periodic table. Lithium was originally supposed to be what the ship ran on in Star Trek until it was changed to the fictional "Dilithium."

    "Those poor poor people."

    I never thought of it, but I think Galaxy Quest is one of, if not 'the' most quotable sci fi movie.

    "...and I thought you were smart for a second."

    "We should have just taken the job, who knows the next time he will ask us".
    And they all leap out of the van.

    Jason: [to Gwen] I gave you the 'kill' gesture.
    Gwen: No, you gave me the 'we're dead' signal. I was agreeing with you. Like I know where the 'hold' button is.

    That movie is so wonderfully written, from wall to wall, it's impossible for me to pick a favorite line or two..I could go on forever quoting the film. It's not only rich in humor, but in story, satire and even drama.

    There are so few sci-fi comedies out there, that I can't even come up with quotes from another that are all that worthy...I guess my second favorite sci-fi comedy (by quite a stretch, too) would be Spaceballs. It's great, but with all due respect to the tremendous Mel Brooks, it pales when compared to GQ :)

    I didn't know you could get that loaded."
