Independence Day

Get everybody off.
Right, clear the platform. Let's go.

- Major Mitchell. Do you have a pistol?
- What?

- Have you got a gun?
- Sergeant, your sidearm.

See that Coke can on top of the alien craft?
Think you can shoot that thing off?

- Shoot it.
- Sir?

Go ahead.
- What the hell are you doing?
- I'm sorry. My fault.

That Coke can was protected
by the craft's shield.

- We can't penetrate it.
- What's your point?

My point is, if we can't beat their defences,
then we gotta get around them.

Major. One more time... Any time.
- How did you do that?
- I gave it a cold.

l gave it a virus. A computer virus.
Are you telling us you can send out a signal
that will disable all their shields?

Just like they used our satellites against us,
we can use their own signal against them.

lf we plant a virus into that mother ship,
it's gonna filter down
into all the corresponding ships below.

I'm sorry. I don't understand. How exactly
do we infect the mother ship with this virus?

We're... We're gonna
have to... fly their alien craft
out of our atmosphere and dock with it.

We can enter here,
as shown in these satellite photos.

We then upload the virus, set off
some kind of explosion which'll disable it.

That'll disorient the smaller ships below
and that could buy you some time to...

to take 'em... take 'em out. Take 'em down.
Do your... Do your stuff.
