Grayson: You should try eating in the morning instead of drinking. It's neat.
Mercer: I'm having A beer.
Grayson: Yeah. At nine AM.

Kitan: Oh, Claire, I have bad news.
Finn: What's wrong?
Kitan: You're the ranking officer which means you have command. Enjoy.
Finn: Son of a bitch

Kitan: Kaylon is comparable in that area to the Calivon themselves which means they should be willing to talk to us as long as he's with us.
LaMarr: White dude can go to Compton as long as the black guy says it's cool.
Kitan: I have no idea what that means but yes.

Kitan: Once we reach the planet, Isaac becomes key. As he loves to remind everyone, his homeworld of Kaylon is technologically superior to the rest of us.
Isaac: Intellectually, as well, sir.

Alien: See, their buoys can scan your computer and then instantly generate a customized holographic lure. Soon as you bite, you're transported here.
Grayson: Like leaving an animal trap in the wild.
Mercer: They even knew to make my dad talk about his colon. That's an advanced technology.

Mercer: Do you remember that time Jeff and Maureen invited us to the opera?... and you knew I hated opera so you made me smoke that joint before we left?
Grayson: So sorry. That was supposed to be mine. I gave you the wrong one.
Mercer: Your weapons-grade weed. Yes, I remember it very well. And it kicked in when we got to the theatre and I became convinced that ...
Grayson: ... that you were going to be paralyzed...
Mercer: ... that I would be paralyzed if I stayed seated for longer than two minutes
