<INTERFACE 2037 READY FOR INQUIRY>
Part of my enjoyment of Ridley Scott‘s film, Alien, is the deleted scenes.
One of my favorites depicts a humorous and insightful interchange between the engineering crew (Parker and Brett) and the ship’s warrant officer (Ripley).
When I posted it on the Network, someone needed help understanding the dialogue in the scene.
I have provided here a transcript of the scene in screenplay format. It is a great example of dialogue, and how inefficient our communications actually are on a day-to-day basis.
But just enjoy it for the character insights it provides us with.
