Quotes 

  • Alien : You're an interesting species. An interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.

  • Young Ellie : Dad, do you think there's people on other planets?

    Ted Arroway : I don't know, Sparks. But I guess I'd say if it is just us... seems like an awful waste of space.

  • Ellie Arroway : Is this some test?

    Alien : No, no tests...

    [alien disguised as her father holds Ellie's hand] 

    Alien : you have your mother's hands... You're an interesting species, an interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams and such horrible nightmares. You fell so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we found that makes the emptiness bearable, each other.

    Ellie Arroway : What happens now?

    Alien : [he stands up]  Now, you go home.

    Ellie Arroway : [she stands up]  Home? But I have so many questions, do we get to come back?

    Alien : This was just a first step. In time you'll take another.

    Ellie Arroway : But other people need to see what I've seen, they need to see...

    Alien : This is the way it's been done for billions of years. Small moves, Ellie. Small moves.

  • Ellie Arroway : You're not real. None of this is real.

    Alien : [disguised as her father]  That's my scientist.

    Ellie Arroway : [looking the beach around you]  When I was unconscious, you downloaded my thoughts, my memories, even Pensacola.

    Alien : We thought this might make things easier for you.

  • Ellie Arroway : They all travel here through that transit system that you built?

    Alien : We didn't build it, we don't know who did. They were gone long before we ever got here. Maybe some day they'll come back.

  • Ted Arroway : Hi, Sparks.

    Ellie Arroway : Dad?
