Game over man, game over!

My wish came true this holiday season with the release of Alien Quadrilogy. I watched Aliens last night and had a great time annoying my wife with my imitation of Private Hudson's famous 'Game over man, game over" line. In reviewing the script I found here it seems this classic line was just an ad lib for the script marker (hysterical).
The drop-ship skips again, like a stone, engulfed in flames...AND CRASHES INTO THE STATION. A TREMENDOUS FIREBALL. The remainder of the ground team watches their hopes
of getting off the planet, and most of their superior fire power, reduced to flaming debris. There is a moment of stunned silence, then...


HUDSON


(hysterical)

Well that's great! That's just fucking great, man. Now what the fuck are we supposed to do, man? We're in some real pretty shit now!


HICKS


Are you finished?


Bill Paxton was a genius.


A funny side note related to this release is the frenzy of grammar geeks fuming over the choice of the word Quadrilogy instead of the more formal Tetralogy. I like the word Quadrilogy. I bet more folks understand what it means too.
