Gotta Go Now, Honey

Grace Stamper: Daddy?
Harry Stamper: Hi Gracey. Hi honey. Grace, I know I promised you I was coming home.
Grace: I don't under- understand.
Harry: Looks like I'm going to have to break that promise.
Grace: I, un, I lied to you too, when I told you I didn't wanna be like you...because I am like you. Everything good that I have inside of me, I have from you. I love you so much, Daddy. And I'm so proud of you, I'm so scared. So scared.
Harry: I know it, baby. But there won't be anything to be scared of soon. Gracey, I want you to know that A.J. saved us. He did. I want you to tell Chick, that I couldn't have done it without him. None of it. I want you to take care of A.J. And I wish I could be there to walk you down the aisle. But I'll... I'll look in on you from time to time, okay honey? I love you, Grace.
Grace: I love you too.
Harry: Gotta go now, honey.
Grace: Daddy, no! No. No dad, no!

Let's Turn This Bomb Off

Harry: For God's sakes, think about what you're doin'. Why are you listening to someone a hundred thousand miles away? We're here. No one down there can help us and if we don't get this job done, then everybody's gone.
Chick: Forty-two seconds.
Harry: I have been drilling holes in the earth for thirty years. And I have never, never missed a depth that I have aimed for. And by God, I am not gonna miss this one, I will make 800 feet.
Col. Sharp: You swear on your daughter's life, on my family's, that you can hit that mark?
Harry: I will make 800 feet. I swear to God I will.

Iron Plate

Rockhound: We're in segment 202, lateral grid nine, site 15H32; give or take a few yards. Captain America here blew the landing by 26 miles!
Col. Sharp: How the hell do you know that?
Rockhound: Because I'm a genius.
Watts: The gauges will not read. They're all peaked like we're plugged into some magnetic field.
Rockhound: Who on this spaceship wants to know why?
Gruber: By all means.
Rockhound: The reason we were shooting for grid eight was because thermo-graphics indicated that grid nine was compressed iron ferrite...which means you've landed us on a goddamn iron plate!
