Independence Day

Nearing point of contact, Echo One.
We're closing in.

Roger that. Begin sequence when ready.
This I like.
Look at this!
You know what famous people
have been here? Hm?

- Politicians, actors,
baseball players, singers...

- "It's a dream!"
- Sh! David!

The three choppers are approaching
what has been unanimously agreed
to be the front ofthese spaceships...

You're leaving now?
Hey, see if they've got
those pens they give away.

Dad, what?
I don't have a choice...

spaceships on different sides ofthe Earth.

You'd need satellites to relay that signal
in order to reach each ship.

Well, I found a signal hidden
inside our own satellite system.

Excuse me, Mr President. They're starting.
They're using our own satellites against us.
The clock is ticking.
