This Island Earth (1955) Poster

Douglas Spencer: The Monitor



  • The Monitor : It is indeed typical that you Earth people refuse to believe in the superiority of any world but your own. Children looking into a magnifying glass, imagining the image you see is the image of your true size.

    Dr. Cal Meacham : Our true size is the size of our God!

  • The Monitor : Then you know that shortly we can expect Zagon to commence and sustain an all-out attack. Our ionization layer must be maintained until our relocation is effected.

    Dr. Cal Meacham : Relocation? To where?

    The Monitor : To your Earth.

    Exeter : A peaceful relocation. We hope to live in harmony with the citizens of your Earth.

    Dr. Ruth Adams : In harmony!

    The Monitor : Our knowledge and weapons would make us your superiors, naturally.

    Dr. Cal Meacham : Then why haven't your "superior" brains solved the problem of synthesizing uranium?
