Captain: I don’t want to survive! I want to live!
Captain: Out there is our home – home, AUTO! – and it’s in trouble. I can’t just sit here and do nothing. That’s all I’ve ever done! That’s all anyone has ever done on this blasted ship.
AUTO: In space we will survive.
Captain: I don’t want to survive, I want to live!
AUTO: I must follow my directive.
Captain: [he turns around in frustration, and then looks at pictures of past captains to notice AUTO is closer to the camera in progressing pictures]
Captain: [turns back] *I’m* the captain of this ship! We are going home *today*, AUTO!
WALL.E: [pause] Oh.
Mary: [Mary is looking at the stars outside the Axiom while other passengers pass idly by] Oh! So many stars! Ah.
[she sees WALL-E and EVE flying around outside.]
Mary: Oh! Hey! That’s what’s-his-name!
[backs up, bumps into John]
John: Hey! What the-?
Mary: Look! Look look look!
[she shuts off his chair and screen, making him aware of his surroundings]
John: Huh? What?
[sees WALL-E and EVE]
John: Hey… I know that guy! It’s uh, uh… Wally! That’s it! Hey – Wally! It’s your buddy John!
Mary: [simultaneously] Hey! Hi, Wally!
[John casually puts his right hand upon Mary’s.]
John: [looks down, somewhat surprised; looks up at Mary, smiles] Hi.
Mary: [smiles] Hi.
Eve: Eve! Eve!
AUTO: Sir, give me the plant.
Mary: I didn’t know we had a pool!
Eve: [Eve repeats “Directive” in multiple languages, ending with…] Directive?
[WALL-E demonstrates his trash-compacting function]
Eve: [Eve turns away, sharply] Classified.
