Quotes from the Movie Conquest of Space

The sacred domain of God. His heavens. To Man, God gave the Earth ó nothing else. This taking ofÖ of other planetsÖ it's almost like an act of blasphemy.

Gen. Sam Merritt

But why? They belong to no one else.

Capt. Barney Merritt

Huh. We don't know that.

Gen. Sam Merritt

But look, sir. It couldn't be just an accident that, at the very time when Man's resources on Earth are reaching an end, Man develops the ability to leave his own world and seek replenishment on other planets. The timing is what fascinates me. It's too perfect to be accidental.

Capt. Barney Merritt

Those other planets might already be tenanted.

Gen. Sam Merritt

Oh, I don't think so. The universe was put here for Man to conquer.

Capt. Barney Merritt

Getting bigger all the time, isn't it, sir?

Sgt. Siegle

Yes, Sergeant. The planet and the blasphemy.

Gen. Sam Merritt

Merritt speaking. Here's the report. Lost course for several days due to near-collision with asteroid, but we can still reach destination as plannedÖ which may be Mars, or Hell. This voyage is a cursed abomination! If it were possible I'd come back now, return the ship to Earth and blow it upÖ

Gen. Sam Merritt

General, please!

Capt. Barney Merritt

Ö together with all plans in existence for building another! We're committing Man's greatest sacrilegeÖ and we can't stop.

Gen. Sam Merritt

We've done what no men in the world have done before us! We've got to let them know before it's too late. If it's humanly possible, we've got to report.

Capt. Barney Merritt

Report what? That the operation was a big success, but the patients are dyin' on a lousy, dried-up ball in the corner pocket of nowhere?

Sgt. Siegle

The General wasn't crazy, he was right! We asked for it! There's a curse on this ship and everybody in it!

Sgt. Mahoney

Baloney! You leave that stuff back on Earth. But it don't operate past the thousand-mile limit. "Only God can make a tree." Okay? Where is it? Where's the trees, and the flowers, and the grass? Where's the water? You hear me? Where's the water?!

Sgt. Siegle
