I've gotta go back and watch this movie some time, namely after getting the director's cut.
Even what's posted here is cut down. Dallas and Ripley had more of a conversation in the version I saw, where he explains that the half-formed egg is actually Brett.
I still remember the TV trailers when Alien first came out in '79. I had nightmares for years after, which is as good an argument as any that this is a fucking brilliant movie with an even more brilliant ad campaign.

See? Now that foreshadows the "Kill...me..." in Alien Resurrection pretty well. Was that so hard? Oh I guess it was and as a result French directors look crazy now. Thanks, editing!

She didn't so much kill him as just blast his face with aerosol flamethrower for a second. So he's still slowly being eaten alive only now he has third degree burns on his face. Way to go, Ripley. Jerk.
HURF BLURF DUH
As I recall, they rigged the flamethrowers from spare parts. Parker was a talented engineer, it seems. Up until he got his brain eaten out.

Don't get me wrong I love Alien but this scene struck me as kinda cheeseball and I'm glad they cut it
Since the inception of DVD deleted scenes, I think I have yet to see one that would have improved the movie.

Ridley Scott may have good director skills but his DVD commentaries are total garbage. He spends his entire time on the track simply describing what's happening in each scene and how the story unfolds...it's practically the "seeing impared" audio track.
