(at around 1h 45 mins) When Ripley is preparing the M41 rifle with the flamethrower she is seen loading a new cartridge of ammo in the rifle as the counter runs up to 95. Once the elevator doors open the counter reads 42. She hasn't yet fired a shot.
The ALIENS title forms slowly during the opening credits. The full title isn't seen until the opening credits are finished, and the "I" illuminates brightly.
