Newt coughs again, Ripley say's You Okay?

Hudson say's I'm all right, Burke offers Hudson a first aid box but Hudson retorts his offer, He shouts and pushes Burke saying "Get away from me" man!". Ok Hudson Burke say's as he puts his hands up in defence. Hicks tries to wake Gorman he say's Lieutenant but there is no response.

Ripley comes over to Hicks and Gorman, She say's What happened to Gorman?
Hick replies, I don't know, Maybe a concussion.  But he's alive.

Vasquez comes over angrily and violently, she shouts "He's dead!"

She continues, Wake up, pendejo, and then I'm gonna kill you! She raises her right elbow towards Gorman as if she is going to hurt him.

Hicks puts his left hand up to protect Gorman and say's to Vasquez, Back off, Right now, Vasquez looks at Hicks then stands up and walks away.

Vasquez say's Fuck! as she walks away, Hicks say's Somebody get me a first aid kit! Hudson has noticed the monitor display screens and say's Hey Hey look, The sarge and Dietrich aren't dead man. Their signs are real low but they ain't dead.

Bold Title

Vasquez say's Then we go back in there and get them. 

Hudson replies, Fuck that! Vasquez replies, We don't leave our people behind, Hudson scream back at Vasquez, I ain't going back in there.

Ripley intervenes and say's, You can't help them! 

Ripley continues, You can't, Right now they're being cocooned just like the others, 

All goes quiet except for a intermittent beeping sound, Hudson say's Oh, dear Lord Jesus this ain't happenin' man. Hicks say's quietly Damn it. Hudson is almost in tears and say's This can't be happenin' man. This isn't happenin!.

Vasquez say's All right, We got seven canisters of CN-20, I say we roll them in there and nerve gas the whole fucking nest. Hicks replies, That's worth a try, but we don't even know if it's gonna effect them. Hudson replies, Let's just bug out and call it even. Okay?, What are we talking about this for?.

Ripley intervenes and say's, I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. 

Ripley say's It's the only way to be sure.

Hudson replies, Fuckin' "A"!,


Burke say's This installation has a substantial dollar value attached to it. 

Ripley say's,  They can bill me.

Burke say's Okay look, This is an emotional moment for all of us, Okay?. I know that. But let's not make snap judgments, please.

This is clearly- clearly an important species we're dealing with, and I don't think that you or I or anybody has the right to arbitrarily exterminate them.

Ripley replies, Wrong, 

Vasquez say's Yeah Watch us.

Hudson snaps at Burke, He say's - Maybe you haven't been keeping up on current events, But we just got our assess kicked, pal!

Burke say's Look I'm not blind to what's going on, but I cannot authorize that kind of action. I'm sorry.

The A.P.C. operations room is quiet and a moment passes, Ripley say's We'll, I believe Corporal Hicks... has authority here.

Burke replies, Corporal Hicks is... he goes quiet, Ripley say's This operation is under military jurisdiction, 

and Hicks is next in chain of command. Am I right corporal?  Ripley say's as she looks over at Hicks.

Hicks say's slowly Yeah... Yeah, that's right.

Burke continues, Yeah, Look,.. Ripley, Ripley say's yes, Burke say's This is a multimillion-dollar installation, Okay? He can't make that kind of decision. He's just a grunt. 

Uh, No offense Burke say's as he signals over to Hicks.

Hicks say's slightly agitated, None taken, He speaks to Ferro over the comms headset, He say's Ferro, do you copy? The radio fizzes and Ferro say's Standing by. Hicks say's Prep for dust off, We're gonna need immediate evac. 

Roger on our way Ferro say's.

Hicks say's I say we take off, nuke the site from orbit. 

Hicks continues, It's the only way to be sure.

Hicks moves off and say's Let's Do it!

Wind is whistling and it is very breezy and moderately noisy, The footsteps of the survivors can be heard as they carry the injured Gorman in a stretcher to the pick up location.

Hicks shouts out, Let's go, Pick it up Hudson, Pick it up baby.

Hick's say's All right, Set him down here.

Hicks lights a flair and throws it a few meters so that the drop ship can locate them.

Ferro shouts out on her headset, Move it Spunkmeyer, we're rolling. Ferro clicks a switch to start the engines.

Spunkmeyer runs towards and up the ramp to enter the craft.

Spunkmeyer runs to the stairs but without looking puts his right hand into some sticky gunk that is on the ladders.

Spunkmeyer shouts out to Ferro, Hold on a second, There's something, He looks back hesitating and consciously intrigued, Ferro is not interested in Spunkmeyers find and say's Just get up here.

Spunkmeyer climbs the short ladders and clicks a switch to close the ramp, He say's I'm in, Ramp closing.

The drop ship makes a thunderous noise as it lifts off the ground, 

Ferro is still waiting for Spunkmeyer to get back to his cockpit position. She say's Spunkmeyer on her headset but theres no reply. Goddamn it she say's as she starts to lose her patience. The sound of a door is heard opening.

Ferro turns around and say's We'll, where the fuck, her words are cut short. 

An alien has entered the cockpit and hisses dangerously at Ferro, 

Ferro grabs her pistol but there is no time for her to defend herself.

Ripley and the rest of the survivors watch the drop ship coming in closer then impacting off a rocky peak, Ripley shouts "Run"

The drop ship makes an almighty thundering and crashing sound as it smashes down onto the ground, The ship turns over and over as pieces of debris fly out in all directions.

Hudson say's We'll, that's great, That's just fuckin' great, man.

Hudson say's We'll, that's great, That's just fuckin' great, man.
Now what the fuck are we supposed to do?, We're in some real pretty shit now, man!

Hicks grabs Hudson by the scuff of his neck and say's Are you finished?

Hicks say's to Ripley, You all right? She nods to signify that she is.

Newt say's I guess we're not gonna be leaving now, right?

Ripley replies, I'm sorry Newt. Newt replies, You don't have to be sorry. It wasn't your fault. 

Hudson is in the background and say's That's it man. Game over, man! Game over! What the fuck are we gonna do now? What are we gonna do?

Burke replies, Maybe we could build a fire. Sing a couple of songs, huh? Why don't we try that?

Newt say's We'd better get back, cause it'll be dark soon, and they mostly come at night, mostly.

Hicks says, That's everything right? Hudson say's yeah, Hicks say's All right, this is absolutely everything that we could salvage out of the A.P.C. wreckage. We got four pulse rifles with about 50 rounds each. That ain't so good. We got, uh 15 of these M-40 grenades, 

Hicks say's Don't touch that, 

Dangerous honey, Ripley say's is that the only flamethrower?.

Hicks say's Yeah, It's only half full, but it's functional. 

Hicks continues, Got another one, it's damaged, I don't know about that one. 

Hicks say's, But the good news.. we got four of these robot sentries, 

with display and scanners intact.

Hicks say's, They really kick ass. I think they'll come in handy. Ripley say's, How long after we're declared overdue can we expext a rescue?

Hicks hesitates and then say's Seventeen days.

Hudson say's, Seventeen day? Hey man, I don't wanna rain on your parade, but we're not gonna last 17 hours.

Hudson continues, Those things are gonna come in here just like they did before,

They're gonna come in here, Ripley shouts Hudson! Hudson! to try and cool him down, Hudson say's They're gonna come in here and they're gonna get us!

Ripley say's This little girl survived longer than that... with no weapons and no training. Ripley looks down at Newt and say's Right!

Newt turns around and salutes Hudson, Hudson replies sarcastically, Why don't you put her in charge?

Ripley say's You'd better just start dealing with it Hudson, 

Ripley continues, Listen to me, Hudson just deal with it because we need you 

And I'm sick of your bullshit, Now I want you to get on a terminal and call up some kind of floor plan file. Do you understand?

Ripley continues, Construction blueprints, I don't care, Anything that shows the layout of this place. Are you listening?

Hudson starts to come to his senses a little more and say's Yeah, Ripley say's I need to see air ducts, 

Ripley continues, I need to see electrical access tunnels, subbasements,

Every possible way into this complex.

We don't have much time-


Okay, I'm on it, 

Ripley say's Hudson, Just Relax! 

Hudson catches his breath and takes a deep breath to compose himself.

Bishop say's, I'll be in medlab, I'll check on Gorman, continue my analysis.

Ripley say's Fine, You do that. Ripley does not seem too concerned about Bishop's closeness at this point.

This image is of the Atmosphere processor which is visible from the administration complex. Height 1500 Meters, Power plant, 1.0 terrawatt fusion reactor, Manufactured by Weyland Corp and Weyland Yutani Corp, The APP is a large automated reactor that is capable of converting an unbreathable toxic gas into one suitable for human habitation. Hadley's Hope on Acheron LV-426 was established for this very purpose. 

Ripley say's, So this service tunnel must be how they're moving back and forth.

Hudson say's That's right, It moves from the processing station right into the sublevel here.

Come down on that. Okay, come over, Hold, Go back. Okay, Punch that in right there.

Hicks say's No, It's back here, Ripley say's Okay.

Ripley say's, We'll, there's a pressure door at this end.

Ripley continues, Couldn't we put one of the remote sentry units in the tunnel and then seal that door?

Hicks say's, Yeah, that'll work, but we gotta figure on them getting into the complex.

Ripley say's That's right, so we repair the barricades at these two intersections, Hicks say's Right,

Ripley continues, And weld plate steel over these ducts, Here and Here and Here.

Ripley say's That way they can only come at us from these two corridors.

Hicks say's All right, Then we put the other sentry units here and here, right?

Ripley say's Right, Hicks say's Outstanding, Now all we need is a deck of cards.

Hicks say's All right, people, Let's move like we got a purpose. Hudson say's affirmative.

Newt looks to Hicks and say's Affirmative in a fun kind of way.

Hicks is setting up the computer terminals that control the sentry outposts, A beeping is heard as he moves around the screen selecting options.

Hudson say's Do your thing, baby as he plugs a power lead into one of the sentry units.

Hudson say's Do your thing, baby as he plugs a power lead into one of the sentry units. Come on Vasquez Hudson say's, Let's get the hell outta here.
Hudson speaks to Hicks through his headset, He say's Hudson here, "A" and "B" sentries are in place and keyed.

Hicks replies, Roger, Stand by. Arming now. 

Hicks say's Test it, Hudson as the computer screen goes from SAFE to ARMED.

Hudson shouts Do It!, Vasquez shouts Fire in the hole! 

Hudson shouts, Okay, great, Let's get the hell outta here!
We're sealing the tunnel. Come on, baby Hudson say's in anticipation of the door closing as quickly as possible.

A welder can be heard crackling, 

Hicks taps the metal barricade with his fist and say's, For what it's worth.

Hicks say's, Here I want you to put this on. 

Ripley say's, What's it for? 

Hicks say's, It's a locator.

Then I can find you anywhere in the complex on this.

The locator device starts beeping rapidly then stops, Hicks say's, It's just a precaution. Ripley say's, Thanks.

Hicks say's, Doesn't mean we're engaged or anything. This statement causes Ripley to smile in a humorous way. Hicks say's, All right what's next?

A low breeze can be heard.

The sentry weapons are scanning from left to right and there is a continuous beeping, A low level motorised humming and occasional clicking is heard.

Ripley has Newt in her arms and has brought her to the medlab where she can get some rest, The automatic electronic sliding doors whirl open. There is complete silence in the medlab and no one else is there.

Ripley say's softly, Last stop, Ripley lowers Newt down onto the bed and say's, Get in. Scoot down, That's Good.

Ripley say's Now you lie here and have a nap. You're very tired.

Newt say's, I don't want to. I have scary dreams.

Ripley hesitates then say's with a deep breath, We'll, I bet Casey doesn't have scary dreams.

Let's take a look. Nope, nothing bad in there.

Ripley say's, See? Maybe you could just try to be like her, hmm?
Newt replies with innocence, Ripley, she doesn't have bad dreams.. because she's just a piece of plastic.

Ripley say's Right, I'm sorry Newt as she smiles.

Ripley switches on a heater by the side of the bed and turns it to face Newt, Ripley say's, There.

Newt say's, My mommy always said there were no monsters, No real ones but there are.

Ripley say's Yes, there are, aren't there?

Newt say's, Why do they tell little kids that?

Ripley say's, Most of the time it's true.

Newt say's, Did one of those things grow inside her?

Ripley replies, I don't know, Newt. That's the truth.

Newt replies, Isn't that how babies come? I mean, people babies? They grow inside you

Ripley replies, Oh, that's very different. Newt say's, Did you ever have a baby? Ripley replies, Yes I did, I had a little girl.

Newt say's in an enthusiastic tone, Where is she?,

Ripley replies softly, She's gone.

Newt say's quietly, You mean dead.

Ripley hesitates then say's, Here.

Take this,

For Luck!

Ripley attaches the locator watch to Newts wrist, and whispers There's that.

Ripley reaches up and switches off the bedside lamp, Newt reacts by saying, Don't go, Please. Ripley say's, Newt, I'm gonna be right in the next room.

Ripley say's, And you see that camera right up there?

I can see you right through that camera, 

All the time to see if you're safe.

Ripley say's with a sincere tone of voice, I'm not gonna leave you, Newt.I mean that. Ripley say's with a whisper, That's a promise.

Newt replies, You promise? expecting an oath.

Ripley say's I cross my heart as she circles her chest. 

Newt say's, And hope to die? 

Ripley whispers to Newt, And hope to die.

Ripley gives Newt a reassuring hug and kisses her on the right side of her face.

Ripley say's, Now go to sleep and don't dream.

Newt touches Ripley's nose playfully and Ripley reacts with a playful smile and a tiny laugh. Ripley say's, Sneak.

Ripley stands up and exit's the medlab.

Bishop say's, The molecular acid oxidizes after the creature's death, completely neutralizing it.

Ripley say's, Bishop, you know that's very interesting, but it doesn't really get us anywhere, does it? I'm trying to figure out what we're dealing with here. Let's go through it again.

Ripley continues, They grab the colonists, they move them over there, and they immobilize them to be hosts for more of these. Which would mean that there would have to be a lot of these parasites, right?, One for each colonist, That's over 100, at least.

Bishop replies, Yes, That follows. 

Ripley say's, But each one of these things comes from an egg, right?, So who's laying these eggs? 

Bishop say's, I'm not sure. It must be something we haven't seen yet?

Hudson say's, Hey, maybe it's like an ant hive?.

Vasquez replies, Bees, man. Bees have hives. 

Hudson replies, You know what I mean, There's like one female that runs the whole show.

Bishop say's, Yes the queen, Hudson replies, Yeah, the mama.

Hudson say's, She's badass, man. I mean, big.

Vasquez replies, These things ain't ants, estupido, Hudson replies, I know that.

Ripley say's to Bishop, Bishop, I want these specimens destroyed as soon as you're finished with them, Is that clear?

Bishop replies, Mr Burke gave instructions that they were to be kept alive in stasis for return to the company labs.

A small moment passes and all is quiet.

Bishop say's, He was very specific about it.

Burke say's, Look, Those two specimens are worth millions to the bio weapons division, right?, Now if you're smart, we can both come out of this heroes, and we will be set up for life. Ripley replies, Your crazy Burke do you know that? Do you really think you can get a dangerous organism like that past I.C.C. quarantine?, Burke replies, How can they impound it if they don't know about it?, Ripley replies, But they will know about it Burke, From me. Just like they'll know that you were responsible for the deaths of 157 colonists. Burke say's, Wait a second, Ripley continues, You sent them to that ship, Burke replies, You're wrong.

Ripley replies, I just checked the colony log, Directive dated 6-12-79, signed Burke, Carter J. You sent them out there, and you didn't even warn them. Why didn't you warn them Burke?, 

Burke say's, Okay, look. What if that ship didn't even exist?, Do you ever think about that?, I didn't know, So now if I went and made a major security situation out of it, 

Everybody steps in, administration steps in, and there's no exclusive rights for anybody. Nobody wins, So I made a decision and it was wrong, It was a bad call Ripley, It was a bad call.

Ripley replies "Bad call" and Burke replies "Right" thinking Ripley would agree with his words. Ripley suddenly grabs Burke by the collar and slams him against a toughened perspex window pane in complete anger. Ripley shouts in anger, These people are dead Burke!, Don't you have any idea what you've done here?. We'll I'm gonna make sure that they nail you right to the wall for this!, You're not gonna sleaze your way out of this one, Right to the wall.

Ripley starts to walk away from Burke and Burke replies, Ripley I....You know, I expected more from you, I thought you'd be smarter than this.  

Ripley replies, We'll, I'm happy to disappoint you.

Ripley enters through a door and as she does an alarm starts to blare with a red flashing light.

Hudson say's, What is it? What's going on?, Hicks replies, They're coming. Hudson say's Where? Hicks replies, In the tunnel.

Automatic gunfire is heard as the Remote Sentry Weapon System displays show how many rounds are being depleted and also temperatures.

Hicks say's, Here we go, "A" and "B" gun tracking far end. Multiple targets. A loud shrieking is heard as the xenomorph's are obliterated.

The sound in the corridor where the sentry units are placed is very very loud. Bullets are firing rapidly.

Hudson say's, Those ammo counters go.

Hicks say's, "B" gun's down 50%..

Hudson say's, Man, It's a shooting gallery down there.

Hicks say's, Sixty rounds left on "B" The display starts to beep a critical warning.

Hicks say's Fourty, Twenty, Ten.

Hicks say's, "B" GUN'S DRY, Twenty on "A"

Hicks say's Ten, Five, A steady beep is sounding out.

A continuous beep emits to signal an out of ammunitions warning, Hicks turns to Ripley and say's, That's it.

Hudson say's, Jesus, they were wall to wall in there, 

A heavy pounding can be heard.

Ripley say's, They're at the pressure door. Hudson say's, Man listen to that.

Bishop comes over the communications headset, He say's, Bishop here, I'm afraid I have some bad news, Pounding can still be heard.

Hudson say's, We'll that's a switch.

Ripley say's as she looks out at the atmosphere processor, It's very pretty, Bishop but what are we looking for?

Bishop say's as he points his arm to the bright venting, That's it, Emergency venting, Hudson say's as he walks past the window, Oh, that's beautiful, man. Oh, man, that's that just beats it all.

Hicks say's, How long till it blows? Bishop replies, Four hours, Hicks groans with disappointment, Bishop continues, With a blast radius of 30 kilometers, equal to about 40 megatons.Hicks replies, We got problems, Hudson say's, I don't believe this, I don't fucking believe this.

Hicks instructs Vasquez to close the shutters, He say's Vasquez close the shutters. A whirring is heard as the shutters close down, Ripley say's to Bishop, Why can't we shut it down from here?

Bishop replies, I'm sorry, The crash caused too much damage, An overload is inevitable at this point. Hudson say's in the background, Oh man, and I was getting short, Four more weeks and out, Now I'm gonna buy it on this rock.

It ain't half fair man. Vasquez say's, Hudson, give us a break!.

Hudson continues, Four more weeks, Oh man. Ripley say's, We'll we've got to get the other drop ship from the Sulaco. I mean, there must be some way of bringing it down on remote.

Hudson shouts out, How?, The transmitter was on the A.P.C., IT'S WASTED.

Ripley replies, I don't care how, But we'd better think of something, We'd better think of a way.

Hudson shouts out in anger, Think of what?

We're fucked! We're doomed!

Hicks shouts back at Hudson to Shut Up!, Shut up he tells Hudson. 

Hicks say's, What about the colony transmitters? 

Hicks continues, The up link tower down at the other end. Why can't we use that? 

Bishop replies, No, I checked, The hardware in between here and there was damaged. We can't align the dish.

Ripley say's, We'll, somebody's gonna have to go out there, Take a portable terminal, go out there and patch in manually.

Hudson replies, Oh yeah, sure, With those things running around? You can count me out.

Hicks replies, Guess we can just count you out of everything Hudson. Bishop say's in the confusion, I'll go, I'll go.Hudson say's, That's right man. Why don't you go man?.

Bishop repeats his words, I'll Go he say's. Ripley hear's Bishops words and say's with interest, What?

Bishop say's again as all goes quiet, I'll go, I mean I'm the only one qualified to remote pilot the ship anyway, 

Hudson say's, Yeah, right, man. Bishop should go. Good idea.

Bishop say's, Believe me, I'd prefer not to, 

I may be synthetic, but I'm not stupid.
