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.

[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!

Advisor:
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.

B.O.B.:
No!

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!

Susan:
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.

Susan:
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?

B.O.B.:
[points to Missing Link] Link?

Susan:
[correcting him] You.

B.O.B.:
Amazing!

[Insectosaurus roars]

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

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

Gallaxhar:
[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?

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

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

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

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

Susan:
Look, I'm sorry your planet was destroyed-

Gallaxhar:
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]

Gallaxhar:
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]
