Peter Hyams directed the movie and wrote the screenplay based on the Arthur C. Clarke's novel 2010: Odyssey Two. The full title, 2010: The Year We Make Contact, appears on posters, but not in the movie.
David Bowman: My God, it's full of stars!
Heywood Floyd: Who the hell are you?
Dimitri Moisevitch: I'm Moisevitch. I'm here to talk about your problem.
Dimitri Moisevitch: You left a good number of loose edges.
Heywood Floyd: Ends.
Dimitri Moisevitch: Loose ends, yes. Thank you.
Heywood Floyd: You just read that report? Took you this long to steal our secrets?
Dimitri Moisevitch: How long does it take for your people to steal ours?
Heywood Floyd: Same amount of time.
Dimitri Moisevitch: We know you are building the Discovery II to
go back to Jupiter, to find out what happened to your men up there. You
know we are building the Alexei Leonov to also go up there.
Heywood Floyd: I thought you were going to call it the Titov?
Dimitri Moisevitch: We changed last month; people fall out of favour.
Dimitri Moisevitch: The Leonov will reach Discovery almost a year before your people are ready. My government feels it is very important that we get there first. It's a distinction that will look splendid on the front page of Pravda. What other value it has I don't know.
Heywood Floyd: How could you convince your people to allow Americans to go on the flight?
Dimitri Moisevitch: It won't be easy, however, I'm pretty good! A Russian craft, flown by Russians, carrying a few poor Americans, who need our help. That also doesn't look too bad on the front page of Pravda.
Milson: I've got a President with his finger poised on the
button and you want me to go over there and tell him we want to hitch a
ride with those very same Russians. Have I missed anything?
Heywood Floyd: Nope, that's about it.
Heywood Floyd: The Russians are going to go aboard Discovery with or without us. Ask the President if he wants them to have all the answers.
Milson: Not bad.
Milson: Who's the third?
Heywood Floyd: Chandra. He designed Hal. He can reactivate him.
Milson: I think he is Hal.
Heywood Floyd: I know.
[what to tell to the President]
Heywood Floyd: If we do go, we'll lie. We'll give 'em false information. Tell him that, he'll love that.
Milson: You know… he might.
Sal 9000: Will I dream?
Chandra: Of course you will dream. All intelligent creatures dream. Nobody knows why. Perhaps you will dream of Hal just as I often do.
Christopher Floyd: Are you gonna die?
Heywood Floyd: Why do you say that?
Christopher Floyd: When Jamie's grandfather died his mom told him that he'd be asleep for a long time.
Heywood Floyd: No, no, no. This is different.They're gonna wake me up. You have to sleep on the way up and on the way down, otherwise you go cuckoo and there wouldn't be enough food aboard the flight for everybody.
Heywood Floyd: Alright, what's going on here?
Tanya Kirbuk: What do you mean?
Heywood Floyd: I mean I may not be the swiftest guy in the world even when I'm not hung-over but I do seem to remember a process whereby you people ask me questions and I give you answers, I ask you questions and you give me answers and that's how we find out things. I think I read that in a manual somewhere.
Heywood Floyd: Just because our governments are acting like asses doesn't mean we have to. We're scientists, not politicians.
Heywood Floyd: We've been sending probes out here since the '70s. So have you guys. But none of us have ever encountered even the slightest signs of chlorophyll on any of Jupiter's moons. Never. And we certainly were close enough,weren't we? Nine years ago the monolith was detected here. Discovery was sent up and everything went wacko. You catching my drift?
Heywood Floyd: How do you feel?
Curnow: Like shit.
Heywood Floyd: That's about right.
Chandra: How was aerobraking?
Heywood Floyd: We're here, so, it worked.
Chandra: I wish I could have seen that.
Heywood Floyd: I wish I could have slept through it.
Curnow: If it has to taste like this I don't care if my electrolytes are balanced or not.
Heywood Floyd: To tell you the truth, I don't know if HAL is homicidal, suicidal, neurotic, psychotic or just plain broken.
Curnow: Chandra would have kittens if he found out.
Heywood Floyd: He's not gonna find out, is he?
Curnow: Well, not from me. They can tear off my fingernails, I won't talk.
Heywood Floyd: Install it tonight when he's asleep. If he ever does sleep.
Curnow: How can you tell?
Heywood Floyd: We don't know what it is, except that it's very large and seems to have some purpose.
Max: Hey, piece of pie.
Curnow: Cake, piece of cake.
Tanya Kirbuk: Tell me Doctor Floyd, what has happened to American bravery?
Heywood Floyd: It's alive and well, thank you very much. What's happened to Russian common sense?
Max: Easy as cake, yes?
Curnow: Pie, easy as pie.
Tanya Kirbuk: I didn't know you brought liquor on board, it is forbidden.
Heywood Floyd: You think I'd set foot on this tub sober? Come on, try it. You can't beat the taste of alcohol and plastic.
Tanya Kirbuk: So what else do they do in Kentucky?
Heywood Floyd: Let's see. They have a big, big horse race, play very good basketball, have babies like everywhere else.
Tanya Kirbuk: Sounds like a nice place.
Heywood Floyd: Never been there.
Heywood Floyd: We have to initiate an escape launch in 2 days.
Tanya Kirbuk: You have been drinking your whiskey from Kentucky.
Heywood Floyd: I wish I had.
Milson: It's been 12 hours since my request for information. I need a reply. All hell is breaking loose down here, I have enough problems without you pulling some kind of a stunt. I only hope that there's a world left for you to return to. Report to ground as to what is going on and make that report immediately!
Chandra: Whether we are based on carbon or silicon makes no fundamental difference. We should each be treated with respect.
Heywood Floyd: I'd love a hot dog.
Curnow: The Astrodome. Good hot dogs.
Heywood Floyd: Astrodome? You can't get good hot dogs indoors. Yankee Stadium, September. Hot dogs have been boiling since the opening day in April. That's a hot dog.
Curnow: The yellow mustard, or the darker one?
Heywood Floyd: Darker.
Curnow: It's important.
HAL 9000: Dr. Chandra, I'm detecting strong vocal stress patterns. Is there a problem?
HAL 9000: Will I dream?
Chandra: I don't know.
Heywood Floyd: You can tell your children of the day when everyone looked up and realized that we were only tenants of this world. We have been given a new lease and a warning from the landlord.
Message from monolith: All these worlds are yours except Europa. Attempt no landing there. Use them together. Use them in piece.
