Love (I) (2011)
Captain Lee Briggs: Why do we struggle to breathe a more righteous breath, when we all end up in the same place?
Captain Lee Briggs: They say, when you hear sounds of devils, all else is quiet. My general question to that is: how do you know that what you are hearing is the work of such devious beings? I would venture to say that most devilish noises occur when large numbers of men decide to force the hand of mortality upon one another. And I'd say further that on such occasions, there is not just one sound, but many. It is a quiet orchestra of death. It is also possible that the man who wrote that saying

Captain Lee Briggs: might've just had some broke ears.
Robotic Female Voice: Detecting life. Verified location. Good evening. Tonight has been a wonderful experiment of human contact. A symbiotic relationship between man and machine and you. The human brain is capable of many years of connection. Each one is a memory, an event. Tonight shall be remembered not by one, but by thousands of these relationships. As you leave here tonight, close you eyes and travel back to here, to now. And always remember that this was one moment. You were not alone, and you felt something that thousands of others have felt. And it was - love.
Captain Lee Briggs: Sometimes when I wake up, I feel like I'm still sleeping. I feel like all the colours and shapes of the world have collided, and all I can do is just sit there and watch.
Captain Lee Briggs: I can't explain all this, what uncertainty does to a man's soul, but I do know it can drive the mind mad.
The Storyteller: You only have to remember that what you have done in your life may change what someone else is doing in their life and so therefore, your life continues in their eyes.
Captain Lee Briggs: How can eyes that have seen so much be brought to life by a simple thing?
American Astronaut Woman: Why do you think we're here? Does it bother you that we're not real?
General McClain: Even one man alive is homage to the rest.
Lee Miller: This is genius. Make a big radio with English buttons, and then write a manual for it in Russian!
Skateboarder: We're social creatures, and we need to interact with people. That's why relationships are so important, just so crucial for existence.
Captain Lee Briggs: Some say it was the grace of God that gives us the strength to bear the shaking timbers and falling Earth. Most would agree there was just no where to go.
Captain Lee Briggs: I have decided I am not looking for one discovery. I am simply hoping that we have a history worth remembering.
Lee Miller: [talk to self] Am I scared? You gotta be living to be scared.
Lee Miller: I have come to terms with the fact that some things will forever remain a mystery.
Lee Miller: If you guys are doing some kind of isolation test, or stress experiments, well then you can stop now because... because I'm very isolated and very stressed!
Captain Lee Briggs: To be given a pass to watch all others go is perhaps the most troubling thing to ones being.
General McClain: Captain Lee Briggs.
Captain Lee Briggs: Sir?
General McClain: Man of nine lives. You have any idea how many divisions have us pinned here?
Captain Lee Briggs: No sir.
General McClain: Lets just say, enough to make fate unfavorable.
Mission Control Chief: Even if I want to bring you out of orbit, I don't have the people to do it. Look, we're gonna need you to sit tight for a while. I'm sorry.
Lee Miller: Houston? Cambridge? This is ISS, do you copy?
Lee Miller: I gotta tell you I feel so honoured and thankful to be one of the first to be going back after so long.
Captain Lee Briggs: It's quite an unsettling feeling, to face one's nerves this often. To accept death before each call to advance is frightening.
Lee Miller: My name is Lee James Miller, son of Courtney and Michael Miller. I lost contact with Mission Control on July seventh, two thousand thirty nine. I have remained in a perennial orbit for six years. My mission has long since been terminated, and my daily routine has been based on stretching my life support systems. I've observed neither contact nor indication of any awareness of my current condition. It is with great sadness but determined resolution that I must finally abandon this post. Systems here can no longer be depended on, and I would rather face the journey home than the slow breathless environment of failing O2. While I have no idea what the circumstances are surrounding my abandonment, I would rather rest on Earth than up here alone. I have come to terms with the fact that some things will forever remain a mystery. To whomever this message reaches, I leave in good will towards all. Respectfully, Captain Lee James Miller, July seventh, two thousand forty five.
