Seven years after barely surviving events on board the Nostromo in Ridley Scott's classic sci-fi horror ALIEN, ...
Lance Hendrickson plays a character that is named after him (Lance Bishop).
Salvage Team Leader:
Bio-readouts are all in the green, looks like she's alive. Well, there goes our salvage, guys.
(at around 1h 29 mins) When Ripley goes back to medical to join Newt, she lays her rifle on top of the bed and then lays down on the floor beside Newt. Moments later she looks to break the glass but finds her rifle laying on a table on the other side of the glass. The scene makes it clear that Burke entered while she and Newt were asleep and laid down the opened containment cylinders with the facehuggers inside of them; it's fairly obvious that he moved her rifle out of the room as well (note Ripley's expression when she sees her rifle).
As the final credits fade, there is the sound of a facehugger scurrying across from left to right.
