Distress Signal




"If you breathe on a horses nostrils, you can make him yours for life;

But you have to get close enough first..."



Question: 
What was the Masonic signal of distress used by the grocer B. F. Morgan when Dillinger tried to rob him in 1924?
Answer: 
It consists in holding your arms outward, bent upward 90 degrees at the elbow, and shouting, 



"Will nobody help the widow's son?"

Dallas 
"MOTHER"s interrupted our journey course.

Kane 
Why?

Dallas 
Yeah. Shes programmed to do that should certain
conditions arise. 
They have.

Parker 
Like what?

Dallas 
It seems she has intercepted a transmission of unknown
origin. 
She got us up to check it out.

Ripley 
A transmission? Out here?

Dallas 
Yeah.

Lambert 
What kind of a transmission?

Dallas 
Acoustical beacon, that repeats at intervals of 12 seconds.

Kane 
SOS?

Dallas 
I don't know.

Ripley 
Human?

Dallas 
Unknown.

Parker 
So what? [Laughs.]

Kane 
We are obligated under Section...

Parker 
I hate to bring this up, but this is a commercial ship, not a
rescue ship.

Brett 
Right.

Parker 
Its not in my contract, this kind of duty. 
And what about the
money? 
If you wanna give me some money, Id be happy to
oblige. 
Right. Lets go over the bonus situation.


Ash: 
There is a clause in the contract which specifically states any systematized transmission indicating a possible intelligent origin must be investigated. 

Parker: 
I don't wanna hear it... 

Brett: 
We don't know if it's intelligent. 

Parker: 
I wanna go home and party. 

Dallas: 
Parker, will you just listen to the man? 

Ash: 
On penalty of total forfeiture of shares. No money. 

Dallas: 
You got that? 

Parker: [chuckling
Well, yeah. 

Dallas: 
All right, we're going in. 

Parker: [to Brett
Yeah, we're going in, aren't we?
