Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

1953 Film

  • Large Ham Col. Ralph Heffner's disintegration in mid-sentence always made me laugh:

  Ralph Heffner: Everybody out of here, everybody out! The Air Force will take care of these babies now. Doctor Forrester, get out of here! Everybody out of here! everybody ou -...

  • It's pretty much a case of "dark humor" but, I always chuckle at the reporter who gets indignant, not that he and his species is being attacked. Oh no, he's mad that the aliens messed with his equipment.

  Radio Reporter: Hey! They cut me off. They got my truck!

    • Like a kitten about to attack a bull dog for some imaginary offense.
  • The whole fact that the movie's hero is named Dr. Clayton Forrester. Of course, this was the source of the name in the first place.

2005 Film

  • The scene in the car just after the Ferrier family escapes the first Tripod attack.

 Ray: "This...this thing, this machine, it crawled out of the ground; started torching everything, just killing everybody."

Robby: "What is it? Is it terrorists?"

Ray: "No, this, this came from someplace else."

Robby: "What do you mean, like Europe?"

Ray: "NO ROBBY, NOT LIKE EUROPE!"
