Major General Phillips:
You're looking good, Dutch.
Dutch: It's been a long time, General.
Major General Phillips: Come on inside.
When Dutch is told that the craft found "looks like a surveillance bird" the words don't match the lip movement.
All the 7 main cast members re-appear in ascending order as their names are displayed to give a smile to the audience in appreciation.
The Spanish language TV version includes nearly all the violence cut from other TV versions, removing only two shots: the murder of the hostage in the rebel camp and Dillon's severed arm on the ground. However, some dialogue scenes are not shown. The entire chopper ride into the jungle is removed, as well as Hawkins' joke with Billy and the subsequent shot of the Predator listening to Billy laugh. Likewise, when Mac takes the scorpion off Dillon's back, the scene ends before Mac steps on it and the Predator is not shown picking it up.
