The Andromeda Strain (1971)
Kate Reid: Dr. Ruth Leavitt
Dr. Jeremy Stone : [handing out suppositories] Umm... stop by your rooms and insert these before taking the elevator.
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : I have risked drowning in that foul bath! I have been par-boiled, irradiated and xenon-flashed, and now you suggest I...
[pushing suppository upward in the air]
Dr. Jeremy Stone : I HAVE to! We haven't done a thing about the G.I. tract yet. On level five we must be as nearly germ-free as possible.
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : [eyeing suppository sheepishly] Anyone care to join me for a "smoke"?
Dr. Jeremy Stone : According to this, there'll be a super-colony of Andromeda over the entire southwest in...
Dr. Charles Dutton : [interrupting] Jeremy! These are biological warfare maps!
Dr. Jeremy Stone : Why, yes... so they are... uh... but... simulations, Charlie. Defensive... it's just a scenario.
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : That's not the point, for God's sake! Wildfire was built for germ warfare! Wildfire AND Scoop! And you knew, Stone! YOU KNEW IT!
Dr. Jeremy Stone : That's not true, Ruth! I learned about Scoop the same time you did!
Dr. Charles Dutton : They already have Andromeda programmed! The purpose of Scoop was to find new biological weapons in outer space, and then use Wildfire to develop them!
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : It stinks, Stone!
Dr. Jeremy Stone : You're blowing your tops! We have no proof...
Dr. Charles Dutton : The map!
Dr. Jeremy Stone : Don't be an ass! That map only shows what Andromeda could do in the hands of an enemy!
Dr. Charles Dutton : Enemy? We did it to ourselves!
Dr. Jeremy Stone : Perhaps! But this is hardly the time to organize a protest!
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : [sarcastic] Another giant leap for mankind!
Dr. Jeremy Stone : Where's the next substation, Hall?
Dr. Mark Hall : Left of elevator on Level 2.
Dr. Jeremy Stone : Right. Across the corridor from Body Analysis, our next port of call.
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : Not for my alabaster body! I mean it, Stone, you can take your Body Analyzer and you can st...
Dr. Charles Dutton : The whole thing. What a world we're making... I can see why the kids are dropping out; we should've.
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : It's an emergency, Dutton. We got tagged, period. 'Til I saw those photos from Vanderburg, I...
Dr. Charles Dutton : They brought it on themselves.
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : Who? The people in Piedmont?
Assistant to Cabinet Secretary : Dr. Leavitt, I told you *there's a fire*!
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : My experiment's at the critical stage, I can't just leave now.
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : I want that plate as soon as it's developed.
Bess, Dr. Leavitt's assistant : Yes, ma'am.
Assistant to Cabinet Secretary : [insistent] My orders come from Dr. Robertson, the president's science advisor.
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : There's a phone, pick it up. Call Robbie. Tell him I've burnt my draft card.
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : I never liked red lights. They remind me of my years in a bordello.
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : Why'd they pick Hall? He's no scientist. Who needs an overpriced MD?
[Leavitt has added a second scanner to view the Scoop capsule]
Dr. Jeremy Stone : No, Ruth. Use only one microscanner.
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : You being paid by the hour? We could cover the capsule in one-half the time!
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : There's less chance of missing something when we both concentrate on the screen
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : Let's go directly to the inside. We can assume they put the scoop on the thing to scoop something into it. Brother, they sure got what they were looking for.
Dr. Jeremy Stone : We're not here to make accusations. We have a job to do, purely as scientists
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : Maybe not so pure.
Dr. Jeremy Stone : [coldly] Continue the scan, Ruth. On the outside.
[At the entrance to Wildfire]
Dr. Charles Dutton : Put your hands on that glass, palms down. It's a finger and palm print analyzer, that...
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : -reads a composite of ten thousand dermatographic lines.
Dr. Charles Dutton : How'd you know that?
Dr. Ruth Leavitt : [coyly] Oh Dutton, I have a *long* criminal record.
Dr. Charles Dutton : Then you're in trouble. This machine has a *long* memory.
