Monsters vs. Aliens

Monsters vs. Aliens

Monsters vs Aliens is a 2009 3-D animation film produced by DreamWorks Animation and Paramount Pictures. It tells the story of Susan Murphy, an average girl who, after being hit by a meteor, is granted super strength and a near fifty-foot height by the foreign element contained within it. She is captured and imprisoned by the government until she and a squad of other imprisoned monsters are called upon to fend off an invading alien.


[General Monger explains his private operation to the government, showing images and video clips along the way]

General W.R. Monger:
Over the last fifty years, I have captured monsters on the rampage and locked them up in a secret prison facility. So secret, that the mere mention of its name is a federal offense!

Is he referring to Area 50 - [He is shot in the neck with a tranquilizer dart and falls over]

General W.R. Monger:
Mr. President, say hello to Insectosaurus! [Shows a tape of Insectosaurus going on a rampage in Tokyo. A woman screams] Miss Ronson, please. Nuclear radiation turned him from a small grub into a 350-foot tall monster that attacked Tokyo. Here we have the Missing Link... [Miss Ronson screams] ...a 20,000 year old frozen fish-man who was thawed out by scientists. [shows a clip of the Missing Link's escape] He escaped and went on a rampage at his old watering hole. This handsome fellow is Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D, the most brilliant man in the world. He invented a scientific machine that would give humans the cockroach's ability to survive. [shows a black-and-white clip of Dr. Cockroach undergoing the experiment, giving himself his cockroach head] Unfortunately, there was a side-effect. [Miss Ronson screams] Now, we call this thing B.O.B.... [Miss Ronson screams] WILL SOMEONE GET HER OUT OF HERE?! [Two men throw Miss Ronson out of the room offscreen] Thank you. A genetically-altered tomato was combined with a chemically altered ranch-flavored dessert topping at a snack food plant. The resulting goop gained consciousness, and became an indestructible gelatinous mass. And our latest edition, Ginormica.

[Another scream the same as Ronson's is heard, and it turns out to be the President's]

President Hathaway:
[Clears his throat] General, continue.

General W.R. Monger:
Her entire body radiates with pure energy, giving her enormous strength and size.

Missing Link:
So, how was Derek?

Susan Murphy:
[after a pause] Derek's a selfish jerk.


Susan Murphy:
Yes. All that talk about us - "I'm so proud of us", "Us just got a job in Fresno" - There was no us, it was just Derek. Why did I have to get hit by a meteor to see that? I was such an idiot! [kicks roof of gas station, sending B.O.B. flying] Why did I think life with Derek would be so great anyway?! I mean, look at all the stuff I've done without him. Fighting an alien robot? That was me, not him! And that was amazing! Meeting you guys... [gets down on her knees so she can be face-to-face with the other monsters] amazing. [turns to Dr. Cockroach] Dr. Cockroach! You can crawl up walls and build a super-computer out of a pizza box, two cans of hairspray, and-!

Dr. Cockroach:
And a paper clip!

Amazing! [turns to Missing Link] And you! You hardly need an introduction; you're the Missing Link! You personally carried 250 co-eds off Cocoa Beach and still had the strength to fight off the National Guard!

Missing Link:
[proudly] And the Coast Guard! And also the lifeguard.

Amazing! [B.O.B. lands next to the other monsters.] B.O.B.! [turns him around so he's facing her] Who else could fall from unimaginable heights and end up without a single scratch?

[points to Missing Link] Link?

[correcting him] You.


[Insectosaurus roars]

Missing Link:
Good point, Insecto'! Susan, don't shortchange yourself.

Oh, I'm not gonna shortchange myself. [stands at full height again] Ever again.

[after extracting the quantonium from Susan, shrinking her back to human-size] Now I can finally rebuild my civilization on another planet! Any ideas on where I could set up shop? Your planet, perhaps?

You keep your slimy tentacles off my planet--! [tries to attack him, but he holds her back at tentacle-length]

Or what? If you wanted to stop me, you should have done it when you possessed the quantonium. Now you're nothing.

There are innocent people down there who haven't done anything!

There were innocent people on my home planet, before it was destroyed!

Look, I'm sorry your planet was destroyed-

Oh, don't be! I'm the one who destroyed it. Confused? After I reveal my tale to you, everything will become crystal clear. Computer! Initialize cloning machine!

Gallaxhar's Computer:
Yes, Gallaxhar.

[Gallaxhar gets into the cloning machine with a mold that matches his body]

Many zentons ago, when I was but a squidling, I found out that my parents were... [The machine closes down, scans his body and opens up again] No child should ever have to endure that! So I went on the road with a giant... [The machine closes down again and scans his body and opens up once again] ...And then thereafter was married! Things were going well. Until she wanted... [The machine closes down yet another time and reopens up] So then, I was all, "No way!" And then she was all, "Yes way!" And then I was all... [The machine closes down once again and reopens up] But I told you too much already! [He steps out of the machine] Let the birth of my new planet called... Uh... Gallaxhar's Planet BEGIN!

[Susan looks around in fear as one by one, pods produce dozens of Gallaxhar clones, dressing them up in lab coats, and equipping them with guns]
