Space Truckers Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Space Truckers script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Stuart Gordon movie with Dennis Hopper.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Space Truckers. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

Space Truckers Script





Move, I want to see a weapon here



And a weapon there



Sergeant, split your squad



Set your weapons for close range



Laser sight interlock engaged



You ready to seal the room?



System's armed, sir

ready on your order



Prepare to seal the room

on my count






Attention, all personnel



The room is sealed



I repeat: The room is sealed



Control two to the commander



I'm sure an intrusion is beyond

parameter three



Moving to check it out



Sector parameter three, scanning



Sector... I see it



Open the fire now



Nabel, this thing's been spotted

in target already



Frankly, I was expecting more



The company's expecting much more



Mr. Saggs, you'll just be patient



Must have missed



Holly molly, I'm taking shots here



Let me out...



AAV   do you copy?



We've just lost contact

with command post three



Outside the second parameter



This is commander



We've lost contact with post three



Can you drop them some

temporary communications gear?



Screw that command



You didn't lose contact

you lost them. Over



Put rockets in that area,

hear me? Over



Check your goddamn screens



Where is he? Nabel



He's on his way



Move your armored personnel...



East sector to the west

keep them moving



Lost two sensors



What the hell is that?



Air   what the hell's

going on out there?



What are those explosions?



How many

are these things out there?



We need to attack



One. Repeat. One



We took a hit...



It passed



We are meat...






Alright, everybody, stay cool



Holly shit, it's right outside



Stay cool...



Do it! Everybody, fire!



Hold your position...






This exercise has concluded



Security stand down



How many people know about this?



I'm the only one with the

complete picture, Mr. Sags



I split development between

divisions and different planets



That's why it cost so much



Yeah, it was expensive



Nabel, with enough of these



we can take over the world



Which world?



Earth, Nabel



The government has been hanging

by the thread for years



With a hundred of these...



How many have we got?






You astonish me!



A particle weapon



Nobody within five years will

have anything remotely like it



This thing turns them on and off



You want to activate them

You just click here...



And tell them your objectives






I've assigned your voice as the

primary command of authority



Nabel, you are a genius



I'm proud of you



The company

will be very proud of you



If circumstances only permitted



I'll greenlight one great

hellacious bonus for you



And a promotion right on the spot



But with our objectives on Earth



You can see how that precludes it



I see



I know you would



After all, you are a genius



Of course

this all has to be deniable



From which you can unfortunately

infer that you too...



Have to be deniable



Destroy Dr. Nabel









Here approaches heavy freight




Requesting clearance

in the Inter Pork dock



PKF, reduce speed to     



And contact the controller

on the designated frequency



This is John Canyon



Inbound from Mars City



Call Inter Pork



I've got     trailers



Of Martian genetically

square jacked up hogs



Which I naturally want to dump

as soon as possible



You got the dock open?



Canyon, this Keller of Inter Pork

packers dispatch



You are two day past due



You got my regrets, pal



Do you want those hogs or not

Mr. Keller?



You get them into C Dock, Canyon



Park your load and park your mouth



Bitching Betty

I'm checking on the cargo



As you wish, driver



Magnetic floor activated



How are you all doing?



You like that don't you?



Everybody happy?



So where's my beer

and when do I get paid?



You can unhook your rig, Canyon



Stop by the office in half an hour



I'll give you a check



I'll unhook when I got my money

no offense



You know that's not company policy



I know that



That's why it's my policy

not to unhook until I'm paid



You are late, plenty late



Didn't I apologize?



I got the hogs here in good shape



I did it as quick as I could



You knew my rig was slow

and you hired me for the job



I've taken that into consideration



That's why I'm willing

to offer you      credits



No, no... you owe me     



You don't seem to get it



I've only offered you     

out of impulsive generosity



I think it's time for you to leave



You are upsetting my pigs



Alright, Jackie



Go get him, Jackie



My pleasure



No... Jackie



That's not the way

to throw a punch in zero gravity



See, this is

the recommended technique






What the hell do you think

you are doing?



You are gonna pressurize the air

and kill us all




these hogs are company property



They belong to me until you pay me



Now get the hell off my rig



I'm gonna get a court order

you hear me?



You'll forfeit your right

of any payment






Do you hear me?






Hi, John



Got only four weeks this time?



Yeah, I got lucky



I picked up a load of

square pigs on Mars



Who is this?



The name is Mike Pucci



Let's not get ahead of ourselves



You are a space trucker, kid?



Not yet



He's taking a solo today






Give me a hamburger well done

and a French fries



What kind of rig you're driving?






Pachyderm? Wow



So you've been driving

for a while I guess



It's hard to beat

that old lion kid



Student Mike Pucci

report to area T



That's me



Wish me luck, Cindy



Good luck, Mike



See you



Who's the kid? To you I mean



The customer, like you



I didn't always

use to be just a customer



Sorry, new rules



They're recycling

all leftovers ok?



Screw all that cheap bullshit



I don't like it better than you do



But I can't afford to get fired



especially now



What's going on?



Well, you know

my mother's on Earth right?



Maybe you mentioned it, yeah



She's gotta have an operation

and it's really serious



And I promised that

I'll be there with her



That's right, I'm sorry



So when are you leaving?



Leaving? You know what it takes



I'll have to pull double shifts

here for over a year



To get on my way out of here



Let me ask around

see what I can come up with



You are a good man, John



But you are not a company man



They only give Earth errands

to company people



And none of them has the balls

to risk taking me



I would give anything



You know what I want






How many times I proposed to you?






I think you left out a few



Last couple of times

you were pretty loaded



Tell you what,

you agree to marry me



I'll get you to Earth






Yeah right



It's a deal then?



John, you get me to Earth



And if you still want to marry me

when we get there



I'll do it



Alright, alright



I'm gonna get back to work






Sonic pig



Cool, man






Get the toll truck ready



I'll unhook the load

and meet you there






Hey, John



Still working independent, John?



Still own my own rig

pick my own loads



And don't sell ads space

on my tits



if that's what you're

talking about



You're back for Kev's funeral?



I didn't hear it



In his load

he got into the scum cluster



Not much of it came out



Hijackers killed him huh?



And then some



Who do you think got him?



There's this Captain Macanudo



That guy's a damn depraved animal



Captured Kev's load



All they sent back was his dick



Using a tennis ball for the coffin



Cremation would've had more

dignity if you ask me



Anyways, John, we're planning on

having a wake after the service






You held Inter Pork hogs?



Yeah, they are my hogs

until I get paid for them



Jesus, look at that



Some piece of garbage

wrapped in human skin



Is trying to jack my load






You want to see me, Mr. Keller?



Yeah, I understand you just

graduated from space truck school






I need someone to

push a shipment of square hogs



To Little Chicago on Titan



Square pigs?



Isn't that John Canyon's load?



It's Inter Pork load



I fired Canyon yesterday



You got a feeling about that

one way or the other?






No, I barely know the guy






Cause it's about      out of the

freight push so you want that job



Yeah, I'm the best



Your potential is frightening



You want the job?



I'll take it



Pick up your pink probationary

coveralls from ammos and supply



See you keep them clean



Pink, huh?



They are pink



Mike, congratulations






John, Mike got himself a new job



Normally we'd have some kind

of blowout... for that



But I see from your pajamas

whom you're working for



Which is nothing to celebrate



John, not everyone

can be independent



Not everyone

can drive their own rig babe



John, I'm sorry

about your losing your job



It's my only shot



I'm out of money.

I'm out of credit



Somebody's gotta

get these pigs to Titan



You took a fearless

world of inventory, kid



And then you took my job?



If you can live with that, great



But I don't have to



Now you hump yourself down

to the other end of the ball



Look, I treat you with respect



I'm asking you to do the same here



Keller's here



Look, kid



Your boss brought the circus

with him



We've come to pay our respect



The circus



A pair of trained turds

are right here



He's just blowing steam,

Mr. Keller



The Kev thing got people upset



Slam your teeth, Delia



I want you off this hub, Canyon



I like to oblige you



If you'd paid me

I'd be gone by now



We've fueled your rig



Now move your ass down there

and off this station



I don't work for you






Somebody said something?



You don't mess with me, Canyon



And you never ever

mess with the company



Now hold on, Mr. Keller



The man's with his rights here



Step off, kid



The kid's a real space lawyer



Get away from me, Canyon



Jackie, do something



Jackie, do something



My god, somebody help me



Somebody, please



Jack, come on



Grab him



No, Cindy, get out of here



Cindy, get out



Give me your hand



Come on



Let's get out of here



It's the wrong door



Get in now



John, it's the wrong door



Get out. What are you doing?



John, close it



It's occupied



Nice lady



Come on in the cubicle,

both of you



Alright, check the stall



Get out, what are you doing?



It's occupied



This wouldn't be a social call

would it?



It's always a pleasure to see you

Mr. Zesty



I need to get off the hub



I need a load



It's problematic, John






There are people who'd like to see

you put down like a diseased dog



Tons of people



How about I recite all the times

that I helped you out?



This and that... Here and there



And I should be the man to decide?






I shall open my heart at once



I do have something



Something unpleasant I fear



We'll take it



I'm his partner



Says who?



What? You're saying I'm not?



I lost one job because of you

you owe me



If I stay here, they are gonna

mount my ass on the board



You're a passenger, not a partner



So what've you got, Mr. Zesty?



It's a rush shipment to Earth



Two-day schedule



Containers to the lab

in high orbit on arrival



He said Earth



We'll do it



What's the cargo?



The manifest states...

Polymer sexual substitutes



Sex dolls?



They're providing   times

of the going rate



Providing all the people forged

of course






I said... done



I hesitate to caution

a man of your experience



But the consigners of this cargo

were most emphatic



That the delivery schedule

being adhered to






Don't temper with those containers



Is this gonna take long?



The troopers are all

over the place



No, I'm almost done



You see her coming?



No, you think the law grabbed her?



No, she'll make it



I like her



She's friendly



Yeah, she's got a kindly nature



You mind if I ask you

what the deal's with Cindy?



I don't get you



I think she likes me



I like to pursue her further



I'd like to know

if you're involved



If I get your drift

and I do get your drift



I must tell you that, Mike



A gentleman doesn't answer

a question like that



That's a no?



Sorry, I'm late



I had to give them

   seconds notice



Here help me out



It's all right



Geez, my underwear



I haven't seen this before



It's a friend of yours?



Actually it's my mother Carol



It's taken before I was born



I can see where

you got your good looks from






Wouldn't mind meeting her

back then









Here we go






I've never seen trailers

like these before



They look kind of...






They look like

they've come a long way already



What do you think is in them,




I don't



Something really creepy



At maximum velocity



We'll still be   hours on the

wrong side of the delivery time



They can stand the ship being late



John, you wanna fill me in

on your plans



I don't ask yours



We're all in this

together alright?



I think you owe me and Cindy

the courtesy of an answer



Our system's functional

Pressure within acceptable range



Electronic systems to the full



John, the minute

we pull outta here



The transport troops are gonna be

all over us, you get that?



Now you just got to learn to

live with your fear



If it gets too bad, breathe into

a paper bag or something



Shut up



Crawl in the cell



You'd better power down, Canyon



I'm sorry, boys



I've got a priority load of

perishable goods here



It's not a request



We've got questions about Keller



Last time I saw him



He's being sucked ass first

into the outer darkness



John, I think these guys

are getting serious



We'd better stop






Not while I still

have the options open



All units converge



Abandon pursuit



Repeat, do not pursue



We can get them, damn it



The orders are to abandon pursuit



I love taking orders



Looks like we lost them



More like they stopped chasing us



That was some of the best driving

I've ever seen



Thank you



Just put the paddle to the metal



And pray for what's in your fate



Breakfast is ready



You guys up there, food's ready



Mike, Cindy, come on



Are we on time?



We'll make it



We left Spensinan



About six hours ago



What's this?



Saliva activated

cappuccino and eggs



Don't you like it?



What the hell is that?



Some kind of floating junkyard?



Welcome to the scum cluster



What the hell happened to them?



Asteroids killed them



Asteroids? Where are they?



Where are they?



Yeah, where are they?



Warning, density    asteroid field



Freight driver



You're approaching too fast

for evasive maneuvers



Don't make me tune you off, Betty



John, this shows a big cluster

coming straight ahead



I don't see anything



It's got to be malfunction, right?



It's the black rock



Drive yourselves in



I think we are clear



I've never been so afraid

in my life



Look out



Ok, Cindy?












I'm going for some light



How bad do you think it is?



It felt bad



Sure did



Betty, confirm what

I'm seeing here



Freight driver main and

secondary engines are down



Decompression inconsistency in a

component in direction control



Thanks, Betty



The internal pool system

has also shut down



You are welcome, freight driver



No chance of a fix?






After five-hour cool-down



We'll roast in here before then



It's getting hot in here



I think we've got two hours

before we burn up



Escape pod's no good



Too far away from

the nearest colony to make it



Anyway, it only holds two



What's that mean? We're gonna die?



There's always a chance



Our emergency beacons will

draw somebody before that happens




What do you mean somebody?






Sure, there's always a chance,




Always a chance



We've got a little juice left

in the parking rocket



If we can cut the load loose



We should be able to put ourselves

in the shadow of one asteroid



Yeah, that'd give us enough time

to fix the main engine



Let's go



It's a one-man job



Be careful



You were born on Earth, Cindy?



Yeah, New York City



That's technically a part of Earth



Earth, I've always

dreamt about going to Earth



It's great



You know... birds, trees



Those things living in the rivers?



Yeah, fish



My mother used to take me

to see them a couple of times



Earth is an amazing place



It's so hot






Do you mind?






I'll do the same



I feel so much better



John, how are you doing

out there buddy?



Some kind of automatic

seal deal here



I'm gonna try cracking it off



Alright, you do that

Let me know if I can help you out



Mike, we've gotta stop



Wait... wait



Stop, this happens all the time



Ok, realize one thing



I'm engaged






It started out as a joke

John asked me to marry him



And I said sure

if you take me to Earth



It's total bullshit



A promise is a promise

John's a good man



I don't have to justify myself

to you or to anybody...



Ok, stop,






This is not gonna work



It's awfully warm in here



Toughly hot in here isn't it?



So let's take your clothes off

be more comfortable









Would that have been your idea?



It was my idea, so what?



I think it's a pretty cheesy way

to look at my fiance's tits



Knock it off, John



That's not what's

going on here at all



I got to hand it to you, Mike

king of the smooth dogs



"Oh, it's hot in here

your husband is outside..."



We're not married alright?



How about a guy who forces a girl



to marry him in exchange

of a lift?



I'd like to know what you think



Hey, stop it...



Stop fighting over a girl



Who's gonna be two scoops of ash

in about two hours



We're gonna die here, ok?



Why don't try for a little dignity

for a change?



I can't unhook the load



There's some kind of auto-defense

mechanism on the containers



Whatever's in them

ain't no sex dolls



A plastic date wouldn't

need that kind of protection



Yeah, tell me about it



So what are we gonna do now?



Why don't we divert the cooling



From the refrigerator

through the inside plumbing?



It's a great idea



It'd give us something to do




Pachyderm      rig...

It don't have a refrigerator



Why the hell not?



Because it's an option



I don't buy options



Like it's either the suede seats



Or half tinted portative

silent suck toilets



I don't buy options



Ok, ok



But I did bring this



Suck a Zux



At least we've got some notice



It's the time to

prepare ourselves for the end



However you do that



Attention, freight driver



We've been approached by

an oligarch class passenger liner



Passenger liner,

we are being saved



There's likely to be some

conditions attached to that



Liner identified

former vessel A  N   






It didn't vanish. It was jacked



These guys are jackers, man



If it's who I think it is



Boy, you're lucky you're not

wearing those company pajamas



Come on, let's go



Get that hatch open, come on



John, how many guns you've got?



I'm not even sure

if this one works



They are here, man



If you're not gonna use it

give it to me. I'll use it



You're gonna make one of them

desperate lie-and-stands?



Say we know these scums

may have in mind for us



What do you think

they're gonna do to her?



Mike, there's not a lot we can do



We just hope our cooperative

attitudes are at our disposition



What do you have in mind, Mike?



We'll hold them off

as long as we can, then...






I'll save two shots for both of us



Great, yeah



Can you put that thing away

someplace safe ok?



We're not gonna let them take us

Give me the gun



Mike, I've got to go to Earth



If I got to wait and do nasty crap

I'm still going



Everybody, come on, move



We don't work for the company

remember that



We are friendly, friendly



Drop it



We don't work for the company



Over to the control panel

move it, now



We're going...



You're all prisoners of the

Regalia if anyone's curious



If you try to escape

you'll be killed



If you resist, you'll be killed



If you fail to obey orders

you'll be killed



What the hell



We'll probably kill you anyway



Alright, get them out of here



Come on. Move it. Get out



Get your hands off me



Move them out...



Come on



We don't work for the company



Move it






Come on



Ok, stay with me



Look at that



Salvage specialist



Shut up. What do you hold?



We don't know



I'm telling you we don't know

never cared



It's a mistake to give up caring



That's too much

Macanudo wouldn't like it



You leave the captain to me



My pleasure



Cutt, man



The manifest says what

they're carrying is sex dolls



Sex dolls?



What do you think

they are really carrying?



Gotta be something hot.

Drugs maybe



You like drugs or guns best, Lou?



Drugs man



I like guns better









Hook them up



This way



Where's Captain's equipment?



Over here



Manifest says they carry sex dolls



Thank you for apprising me

Mr. Cutt



I do know how much you like

to be apprised sir



You have been perspiring



It's about     in the cab



I compliment you, my dear



You have a strong, distinctive



And not altogether

unpleasant body odour



It's gratifyingly approachable



Captain we want to thank you

for saving us



We're grateful about it, thank you



I didn't save you

you company scumbag



I jacked your load



Whatever, we appreciate it



It's important that you understand

we do not work for the company



I want to know what your cargo is



Who's the shipper

and who's the consignee?



We don't know none of that



You're gonna kick yourself later



If you have trouble

to inform yourself



I'd have to slice off

your manly process



Is he talking about my dick?



Captain, we're just

independent contract haulers



We're trying to make a living



We don't ask a lot of questions



What we do know...



Is whatever's in those cars

is not something to mess with



Do I look like someone

to mess with?



No, sir



Like I have the IQ of

an egg timer?






I see high security double-duty

containers in your hauling



I'd say the pair of you

are company butt boys






If you want to hack off my dick

do it



And I'll change my name to Terry

or Lee or something neutral



That ain't gonna change

what I know



Your dick?



Is this your dick?






That one's mine



Ok, I'm gonna put some

Fermat theorem in my head



That takes between   and




And then we'll begin again



Captain's a genius






I was head of company's

research and development



Top man



Slotted for the big dogs



I was betrayed

by that bastard E. J. Saggs



Found out before he killed me



Made a mistake of having it done

in the laboratory



I was able to save myself



We create my body



You are a very attractive woman



In the normal course

of human affairs



You probably

wouldn't look twice at me




where are we going with this?



I'm going at the beauty

like other men



The beauty... beauty fills my

life's holes so to speak



Were you not chained to a major

support beam of my ship



I wouldn't stand a chance of

having sex with someone



As so alluring as you



Leave her alone

you half-wit asshole



He didn't mean that



He respects the brave way

you confront your disability



Kill him






Mr. Cutt



I've got to go to Earth

I've got to see my mother



So keep the load and

give us the...



I'll have sex with you









Right there on the floor

if that's what you want



I think we should prepare

to my quarter, my dear






John, we've got to do something



What are we going to do?

Just sit here?



Don't corrupt the right

to be indignant, kid



She's my fiance



What will make you

more comfortable, my dear?



I have seven different

forms of sedation






The usual pharmacology



Let's not fool ourselves, Captain



I just want to get this over with



I can accept that



However, I'm confident I can make

you a favorable impression



I rebuilt my own mind



So you got a homemade brain



I rebuilt everything



Every organ



I've made a low-amp

electrical wiring pulse



Designed to drive women

wild with pleasure



Stop, you're gonna make me puke



Quit talking or the deal's off,




Please allow me a few moments



To coordinate my seldom-used

reproductive sequence



Yeah, sure



Lou, this casing's made out of

some exotic alloy



This security seal, man

It's something new



I wouldn't mess with that load



It's bad. It'll eat you alive



My heart is racing, Mr. Truckman



Ok, Sam



Hit it



You alright?



The diamond blade just shattered



What the hell does that?



One of those things



We're gonna try something else,







What the hell is that?






Sam... are you alright?



What's cooking?

Something's cooking



What are you talking about?



Smells like somebody's

making hamburgers



Goddamn, Sam, it's you






What did I tell you?



Shut up



I've got to tell the captain



John, we've got to do something



What do you think

they're doing to her up there?



It's not the first time

she's doing it for the team



You wanna lose that?

It's gonna give me nosebleed



It's my good-luck charm

I never take it off



Just close your eyes

and think of Brooklyn



You bitch!



Nothing personal



You've just made the

biggest mistake of your life



Speak tough for a guy

who can't get up on his back



You'll never get off the ship



Yeah? Watch me



Mr. Cutt



There you are, Captain



Lou just went

looking for you, the load...



You want me to leave



Alright, Captain, ok



Back awfully quick

aren't you Captain?



She write you out?



Kill them, huh?



What? What?



You want to kill them, absolutely



You want me to cut them down?



You don't mind if I tenderize

them a little bit first?






You overblown cretin



Aren't you in need of some fixing?



I'm sorry you couldn't find it

in your heart to give me a chance



You could've been

my beloved concubine



Share my position here



I guess it was not

in my fortune cookie



Now all you'll share is my crew



    of them in random order



But first, you can watch me

kill your friends



Or if you prefer

you can turn the other way



Do it



Captain, did it occur to you that



A load with that kind of

protection ought



to be checked out first?



After you, Mr. Cutt



Yes, sir



Right behind you, Lou



Come on, get in there






Holly shit



What the hell is all this junk?



These are my babies






State of the art

disintegrators, boys



This baby will bake a man

in     milliseconds



And leave his watch and

small change lying on the deck



Just... what have we got here, sir?



We've got Saggs



We've got E. J. Saggs

right by his shriveled scrotum



A little reprogramming

and the company is mine



Ours, if you will



And I'll feed Saggs' liver

to the ship's rats



Look at this. This one is missing









What's that do, Captain?






It's coming!



Kill it...



What the hell is going on here?



I don't know

but I bet we get blamed



Let's get out of here



Bite it deathnut, asshole



Get ready. Let's go



Five minutes to complete cool down



We ain't got five minutes



Fire it up would you, Mike?



We made it



I can't believe we got out

of there



I gotta say I'm

very very happy to be here



Godamn I am



Me too



Of course you always feel that

way after a near miss



It wears off



Attention, freight driver



There's a breach in the

exterior hull of container One



The pressure and oxygen

levels falling



We've got a vacuumed container

it's too bad



The load's perishables

always perish



Yeah, so forget it



Wait a second. Did somebody hear

something back there?



Does it sound like

something's back there?



I do



Bitching Betty, take over



Mike, suit up



Cindy, move over here



Sit here. You watch these gauges



You see a red light come on



You shout at me on the radio, ok?






I want you to elaborate

on your instructions



Bitching Betty

you hold the course toward Earth



You'd better keep this ok?



It's an SOS



Yeah, it can also be a trap



Light me



There's a flamer in my pocket



Maybe I should

get the first aid kit



Forget it



I cauterized the main arteries



But I don't have much time left



What happened back

there to Regalia?






They are activated to do

what they're programmed to do



You're one of the... our cargos

you know what's in them?



An army






I made them for the company



Genetically engineered



Biochemical super warriors



My babies... you can't stop them



There's got to be some way

to shut those bastards off



We're doomed



I'm afraid



If I had an anus...



I'll probably shit over myself



You got to tell us

how to stop these things



They activate in the waves






This thing here locks them up



You boys got a use for this?



He's gone






For a son of a bitch

gang rapist murderer



He died ok. Come on






John! Do it



I should go check it out in there



We need some light in here



I've got a flashlight



It ain't exactly made

for the space



It's made for reading

under the blanket isn't it?






This thing doesn't work

until they're all grown up



Let's... get back outside

and wait for them






Come on...









Everything ok back there?



We don't know yet



I can't see anything



Isn't that supposed to be

four of them?






Where's the other two?



Cindy, put your spacesuit on



They are headed toward the cab



Do it, John



Freeze them



Do not damage or destroy



your means of transport

to Earth...



It's programming

They can't break their truck



John, he's got a Swiss army knife



Shit, man



Cooking time estimated    seconds



Next time there's gonna be eight



We'll go into the Earth orbit



So when I cut the load loose it

will drop them in the atmosphere



And incinerate those mutant guys



I want the two of you to get in

the escape pod and get out of here



No, we'll go with you



You ain't being asked



Mike, you drive the pod



So what's the plan, John?



Well... I'm gonna try to

free the cargo



Blow it if I have to



Then I'm gonna ride the rig down



John, the goddamn rig will never

make it to the atmosphere



Get serious



Kid, this is a Pachyderm      rig



It was mine before you were born



I know what it will do



Now I've got something

to say to both of you



Cindy, I'm releasing you



Of all your obligations

to marry me right now



I want to apologize

for the way I've done it



It weren't right



And I guess I've been jealous



Since I saw the way you two

behave to each other together



John, you don't

have to apologize really



I don't do it so well anyway



Probably because

you've never done it before



My advice to you is you take

this woman to the church



At the first exit off the freeway

and you get hitched



You are a lucky man



Alright, partner, kick butt



We're about ready here, John



How is it going buddy?



Oh, it's hanging by a thread



I'll have it cut in no time



I can practically kick it apart



No sign of any genetic deal



So go on, get out of here



John, I figure we'll try for

the Palmdale spaceport



You can bring your rig in there



Yeah, it sounds good



I'll see you there



Betty, how much time

before we hit the atmosphere?



   seconds, freight driver



Entering the atmosphere



Had enough for you?



There he is



Look, Mike, is that smoke?



It's bound to be smoke



The seal's burning off



Come on, John, come on, baby



Come on... He's getting closer



He's gonna make it



He's gonna make it



Here he comes



My god



My god, Mike



Hey... Look here



You are married yet?



Good to see you



We interrupt this program

for a special news update



Two space truckers and a waitress



Have saved the Earth

from the invasion from outer space



The three of them discovered



They were carrying

an army of robotic warriors



Sent by persons unknown

to conquer our planet






I have Mike and John here with me



Oh, just a second



Would you like us to come back

when you're more recovered?



No, I'll be right with you



Sit down



Can we get you anything,

Mrs. Welch?



Get this Mike, call me Carol









This is Mike



Mike yeah, welcome to the family



This is John



Oh yeah



You are Carol Welch?



Cindy is your daughter?

This Cindy?



What? Do I look weird

or something?



You look great... and beautiful



Like a picture I saw of you



But the picture was taken

twenty years back



Could somebody tell me

what's going on here?



You see when I got sick

they offered me a choice



Die or get frozen



Anyway, I got the deep freeze



They thawed me. They cured me



Here I am



They froze you?



Well, there's a lot of

fancy names for it but...






I don't look freeze or burnt do I?



Not from what I can see



Special agent Ridgid

I'm taking charge here



What do you want?



Pat them down






I'm head of presidential security



We'll secure this room

for presidential visit



The president?



The president of the world

is coming here?






Mr. President...



Ok, Ridgid, move along






I'm President Saggs



I'm here to express the gratitude

of my administration



And my constituents

All the people of the system



Saggs? E. J. Saggs?



I thought the president's name

was Dobey



Dobey is the former president



He resigned last week



The government's been privatized



We know who you are Saggs, ok?



You sent those things to Earth



And you cost us a good rig



And you almost got us killed

about    times



Take it easy



You are talking to

the president here



I'll grant you

there've been mistakes made



And there've been lies told



But I assure you

whatever you've been told



I was not aware

and I was not involved



You were not aware, right



Could it be that some individual

in the company



Just overreached himself?



He sent these things to Earth

as a kind of insurance policy



In case the merger task broke down



But I wouldn't like this sort of

rumors to be circulating



During the crucial days

of my administration



Or... Ever



No problem



Just so happens there's

a new rig ready to take off



And it's waiting for you there

on Gantry F



What do you think you

are gonna do?



Buy us a tuna fish sandwich?



I've also arranged



To have your mother's hospital

bill taken care of



Hold on a second



For your other troubles...



Maybe this will compensate

to some small degree



We didn't do what we did for money



Money doesn't fix anything




You have our cooperation

and our silence sir



Good. Good



Well, I must run



Remember our hush-hush



Yes, sir



Thanks for everything



Mr. Independent



What was that about?



You're gonna keep this?



No, we're not gonna keep it



We don't want no part

of that money



You guys could really

use that money



Getting married and all



We don't want that kind of money



You two don't get it do you?



If you don't take this money



And shut up about what happened



They're gonna come after you

And you'll disappear



Now you got to take it



We got to take the money



We got to take this



And become company butt boys

for the rest of our lives



I want to make sure

that you understand the facts



You're gonna take it, John?



Are you gonna take it?



No, but I don't want you

to end up like me



God forbid



Somebody fried Saggs



You know, I think it was us



Oh, my god



We'd better get out of here



Come on



Too bad Saggs blew himself up



We've never got to thank him

for the new rig



Alright, here we go



I've never done this before



Any chance I'll lose my lunch?



You'll be fine
