A delicate subject.

<INTERFACE 2037 READY FOR INQUIRY>

 

With the terrifying loss of Capt. Dallas in the vents, Ripley finds herself in charge. Her smoldering resentment and suspicion of Ash can now be addressed.

After having dismissed Ash for further “collation” with Mother, Ripley turns her attention to Lambert as a source of information…

 

INT. MESS

                          RIPLEY
                I think it's the only way.

                          LAMBERT
                I'm sorry. It just seems like 
                you're asking us to kill each 
                other one by one.

                          RIPLEY
                I promise you, if it doesn't 
                look like it's gonna work, I'm 
                gonna get us out of here. Okay? 
                Will you hang in there? Okay?
                You can do it.
                     (pause)
                I want to ask you a question.

                         LAMBERT
                What?

                         RIPLEY
                Have you ever slept with Ash?

Lambert laughs.

                         RIPLEY
                No?

                         LAMBERT
                No. I never got the impression 
                he was particularly interested.
                Why?

                         RIPLEY
                I want you to figure out where 
                we are now, okay? Plot our 
                course?

 

 

Here is the cut scene, as written above.  (Sigourney Weaver and Veronica Cartwright play this quite nicely.)
