Major Clift, MD: Well, Dr. Martin seems to be indestructible except for his hallucination. Colonel Banks: Those weren't hallucinations, Colonel. Under sodium amethol, a patient loses all control of his imagination. Major Clift, MD: Well, then, he shouldn't be able to fabricare these stories. Colonel Banks: That's right! Briggs, FBI: Major, you're not trying to tell us that everything he said was true? Major Clift, MD: Look, gentlemen, I can only give you the medical facts. As for the rest - you'll have to decide that for yourselves... Excuse me, please!
Briggs, FBI: Did you ever stop to think that perhaps this Dr. Martin isn't really THE Dr. Martin?
- Contrary to the usual practice in the 1950s, the credits for "Killers from Space" appear at the end rather than at the beginning of the movie.
