Invasion America

Invasion America (1998) was America's first animated, prime-time fucking screwed and chopped sci-fi mini-series. It was originally 13 half hour episodes, but was condensed to six longer ones. The story follows David Carter, the half-human son of an alien king, as he tries to stop the Dragit's plots to conquer Earth.

Season 1Edit

The Legend [1.1, 1.2]Edit

[David is speeding on Jim's motorcycle]
Jim Bailey: Uh…how about bringing it down to Mach 1, okay? Personal favor?

[Upon learning and disapproving of the Dragit's plans]
Rafe: Treason!
Dragit: Revolution.

Rita Carter: I'm Rita. Oh, uh- you put your hand in mine, and then up, and down. It's this little custom we have on Earth.
Cale Oosha: Yosh. I have read of this.
Rita: You really are from out there!

Rafe: Let's go while there's time.
Rita: Go where? You can't go back to your spaceship; do you have a back-up plan? …Any plan?

[Cale hands Rita orb]
Cale: Keep this. It is your path to me.
Rita: How?
Cale: You'll know when the time comes.

[telling Rafe to stay behind]
Cale: They need you. Serve them as you served me. Protect them as you protected me. And, Rafe...teach him, as you taught me. He is our future.

Gen. Konrad: Your lab work is outstanding Major Stark. Think of it- a species not of this Earth- and the tabloids got it right for a change.

[looking at a museum exhibit]
Jim: Mmm…I love these things.
David Carter: Didn't think you liked history.
Jim: Oh, I don't. Ask me how I feel about topless native women.

David: In one day my world has been taken from me- my home, my mom- my life. Why? Why is this happening to me?

Assault [1.3, 1.4]Edit

David: Where did my father go?
Rafe: To lead the fight against the Dragit.
David: Who’s Dragit?
Rafe: A warlord who plans to invade Earth.
David: Invade Earth? Why?
Rafe: He claims he’s saving Tyrus. The Ooshati- those who follow your father- disagree.

Rafe: We call it the Exotar- the symbol of sovereignty, eight hundred of your ancestors have worn it. We called your father Cale-Oosha, our lawful ruler. As you will be someday. Put it on.
[Exotar glows, molds to David’s hand]
David: Did you see it? It changed to fit me!
Rafe: When its sensors identified your genetic code, it adjusted to you. If you were not the son of Cale, it would have crushed your hand.

[about an attacking Tyrusian soldier]
David: He looks American.
Rafe: So do I.

[David grabs Rafe's second gun]
Rafe: Do you know how to use that?
David: I go to the movies.

Major Phil Stark: I do not like being shot at.

[while planning attack on underground base]
Suta: What if they release the manglers?
Rafe: Then…they win.

[watching Rafe]
David: What is it, Halloween?
Rafe: Tyrusian war paint. Black represents the darkness within, grey the spirit of the warrior. [applies green]
David: What’s that represent?
Rafe: Nothing. I like the color.

Konrad: How much longer to arm the destruct sequence?
Tyrusian 1: A minute, sir, maybe less.
Konrad: Seal off the core, release the manglers.
Tyrusian 1: But sir, our men are in there.
Konrad: Do it.
Tyrusian 1: No, sir, we can’t.
[Konrad shoots Tyrusian 1]
Konrad: [pointing gun at Tyrusian 2] You do it.

Pilot: You can’t fly this thing!
David: Watch me.

[targetting an enemy ship]
David: Just like a video game…

Konrad: [pointing gun] What? No heroics? No super acts of courage? I’m disappointed in you, Rafe. But I’ll get over it.

David: I’m half human, half alien, and altogether alone. But I will never stop fighting.

Renewal [1.5, 1.6]Edit

Stark: I’d like to speak to the general.
Gen. Gordon: So would we. [2 men carrying a covered stretcher pass in foreground] But it’s gonna take a real high clearance.

[While wandering, lost, in the Utah desert]
David: I didn’t know…how long, how far I wandered. Hours, miles…it didn’t matter. The sun was always right on top of me. I had to contact the Ooshati, the freedom fighters loyal to my father. But the only transmitter was back on Maple Island, and that meant finding my way out of a million square miles of kitty litter.

[hallucinating from heat exhaustion]
David: The visions lasted for hours. I saw Mom [tries to hug Rita but she vanishes]…Rafe…[Rafe mirage morphs into Cale] …and my father. I’d never known how to imagine him before. In my dreams he was never a face…just a deep voice I could never understand, or a strong arm around my shoulders. I tried to tell myself he was there to help me, to give me the strength and courage to survive. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past forty-eight hours [Cale mirage crouches] is that things are never what they seem. [Cale turns into mangler] This vision was real.

[after being rescued from mangler]
David: [panting] Thanks, I owe you one.
Doc: Huh. You owe me a freezer full of good meat.

Sergeant Angie Romar: Something’s not right.
Stark: You getting spirit messages now?
Romar: My gypsy heritage.

[being pursued by a sheriff]
David: He’s gaining on us.
Doc:Well, what do you want me to do, kid? Fly? Turn invisible? This heap didn’t even come with air conditioning!

[Doc is hauling a motorcycle out of hiding]
Doc: Figured I might need something faster than that truck someday. It’s yours if you want it. I put a few gimmicks on it might come in handy. It can do most anything you ask it to…dern near fly.
David: I can’t take this from you.
Doc: Take it. Like I said, I’m no hero…but maybe you are.

David: There were two obstacles: police everywhere looking for me…and I was starving. I never thought I’d risk my life for a cheeseburger.

David: What’s going on?
Man 1: One of them meteors!
Man 2: It’s…coming straight at us!

Capture [1.7, 1.8]Edit

Jim: Okay. Let me get this straight. You’ve just driven 72 hours straight on a motorcycle that hovers so that you can use a glove that glows to stop evil Tyrusians from destroying Earth by launching meteors at it from the dark side of the moon. Right?
David: [sighs] When you put it that way it does sounds kind of wild.
Jim: Wild? What have you been smoking?

Friendly Fire [1.9, 1.10]Edit

Final Mission [1.11, 1.12, 1.13]Edit

Doc: I couldn't stop the meteor launch, so I reversed it.
David: You what?
Doc: It seemed like a good idea at the time.
