Quotes

Salvage Team Leader: Bio-readouts are all in the green, looks like she's alive. Well, there goes our salvage, guys.


Goofs

In Alien, the computer displays have an old-fashioned "teletype" clicking noise when they show data on their screens. However, when the screen in the Nostromo shuttle comes to life at the beginning of Aliens, the display looks and sounds more modern like the other computer screens seen later in the film - even though 57 years have passed and the equipment in the shuttle has not been touched all that time.


Crazy Credits

As the final credits fade, there is the sound of a facehugger scurrying across from left to right.
