Here are the best quotes from "The World's End," a movie that follows five guys who return to their hometown for an epic pub crawl only to find the town taken over by robot aliens. The British science-fiction comedy film is the third film in the Three Flavours Cornetto series which included "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz."

In "The World's End," five childhood friends, Gary (Simon Pegg), Peter (Eddie Marsan), Oliver (Martin Freeman), Steven (Paddy Considine) and Andrew (Nick Frost) return to their hometown of Newtown Haven, their first trip back in 20 years. They're there to attempt The Golden Mile, an infamous pub crawl involving them stopping to drink a pint at each of 12 pubs, ending at The World's End. It's a task they attempted when they were much younger and failed, but are back to try again.

All is going well during the pub crawl, including running into Oliver's sister Sam (Rosemund Pike), but they soon find trouble. The men are approached by teens with superhuman strength and a brawl erupts. Gary knocks the head off one of the teens to reveal he is actually a robot. They put the pieces together and realize that their town has been taken over completely by these alien robots, who take on the bodies of the townspeople, and they are not only fighting to complete the Golden Mile, but also for their own lives.
