Fans of the Alien series are gearing up for the franchises next instalment in 2017, but before Alien: Covenant hits cinemas next year, it's time to celebrate the 37th anniversary of Ridley Scott's original classic.

Every aspect of Alien was intricately planned to the finest detail, from the storyboards to the production design, yet one of the most memorable aspects of the film are the quotes, some of which have become iconic over the years since audiences first heard the words uttered in cinemas.

From the deceptive android Ash to Ellen Ripley herself, each of the films principal characters are given a time to shine within Dan O'Bannon's legendary script, so join us as we explore the ten most iconic quotes from Ridley Scott's classic sci-fi, Alien.
