Frank (Keith David) asks Gilbert (Peter Jason) - a revolutionary fighting against an alien tyranny - what the aliens' intentions are.

The steel mills were laying people off left and right. They finally went under. We gave the steel companies a break when they needed it. You know what they gave themselves? Raises.

The Golden Rule - he who has the gold, makes the rules. They close one more factory we should take a sledgehammer to one of their fancy fuckin foreign cars.

The whole deal is like some kind of crazy game. They put you at the starting line. And the name of the game is make it through life. Only, everyone's out for themselves and looking to do you in at the same time. OK, man here we are. You do what you can, but remember, I'm going to do my best to blow your ass away. So how are you going to make it?

Frank (Keith David) and Nada (Roddy Piper) discuss next steps after realizing the world is inhabited by aliens attempting to pacify humans into oblivion.

Nada: A long time ago things were different man. My old daddy took me down to the river, kicked my ass, told me about the power and the glory. I was saved. He changed when I was little. Turned mean and started tearin' at me. So I ran away when I was thirteen. He tried to cut me once. Big old razor blade. Held it up against my throat. I said "Daddy please"... Just kept moving' back and forth... like he was sawin' down a little tree...
Frank: Maybe they're always been with us... those things out there. Maybe they love it... seeing us hate each other, watching us kill each other off, feeding on our own cold fuckin' hearts...
Nada: I got news for 'em... There's gonna be hell to pay. 'Cause I ain't daddy's little boy no more.

Context:
Nada (Roddy Piper) is trying to convince Frank (Keith David) to put on a pair of special sunglasses - called Hoffman Lenses in the movie - so that Frank will be able to see the world as it actually exists. Frank is reluctant to the point of being willing to fight, which they do.

The thing that no one wants to admit is that most people want things to happen to them. We tell each other lies about the fight for free will and independence, but we don't really want that. We want to be told how to live and then die when we're not looking. People want oblivion, and a few of us are born to build it for them. So here I am - their invisible god sneaking under their skin.
