“We’re in the pipe, five by five.”
I always wondered what Verros meant by that when she eased the dropship down into the murky atmosphere of the movie Aliens. It didn’t matter I guess, because it sounded cool, just like her aviator sunglasses. I still find myself today quietly saying it as I pull into a lane of traffic. Now if I only had the sunglasses.
And that is the only decent Aliens quote on IMDB that I could find after my stomach woke me up and all I could think of was that line about the aliens having “acid for blood”.
I like thinking about that movie because it gives me a cozy feeling. It was one of the first ‘R’ rated movies I saw with my family. I remember it was raining out when we left the theater. We were all smiling having just enjoyed being scared out of our wits. It’s fun to move like that with a group of people. You walk a little faster and not because of the rain.
Oh, and did I mention that Bill Paxton is in it?
