Here are the best quotes from The Space Between Us, a movie about when the first human born on Mars visits Earth for the first time. The romantic science fiction film was written by Alan Loeb using a story he created along with Stewart Schill and Richard Barton Lewis.

In The Space Between Us, Nathaniel Shepherd (Gary Oldman) leads a mission to send six people to colonize Mars, but after those six astronauts head out, they realize that one is pregnant. The mother dies in childbirth on Mars but the baby, Gardner (Asa Butterfield) survives. Gardner spends his next 16 years living on Mars under the care of scientists, including Kendra (Carla Gugino).

Gardner wants very much to visit Earth to find his biological father, meet his Internet pal Tulsa (Britt Robertson), and experience life on the planet. Though this is very risky, as Gardner's organs cannot support Earth's gravity, they allow him to come to Earth for testing. Gardner ends up escaping from the testing facility and meeting up with Tulsa. The two journey across the planet and a romance develops, at least as long as Gardner's body will allow it.

      Nathaniel: I want to go to Mars. I wrote those words when I was 12 years old. Mars is a planet ready for life. In 20 hours, six astronauts will travel to Mars, not to visit, but to live there!
      Nathaniel: Zero gravity, that's uncharted territory. 
      Astronaut: We lost her. 
      Nathaniel: His heart will simply not have the strength in the Earth's gravity. Bones will be brittle.
      Kendra: He wouldn't even survive the trip back to Earth.

          Kendra: Cause she's the only person he knows on Earth and he's a romantic.
