There's variations on the Alien delivering dialogue at the end of the movie.  Some sources say it mimicked Ripley; others say it was to mimic Dallas.  It certainly had plenty of time on its own with Dallas while it had him fastened to a wall.  Hell.  That's a creepy thought, while Dallas was being eggmorphed, it was constantly learning from him, including how to talk.

Sort of reminds me of the Alien that burst from Oram and mimicked David.

So true, actually.

Heck even the Alien Queen mimicked Ripley when she pressed the elevator button.

I kinda liked Obannons idea that it got smarter and peaced out. We'd have never got the Alien Franchise we did though if that was the case.

Pretty sure that Ridley quote about the suit was from after Prometheus was in production, just early on.

I'm pretty sure I heard Surriddley raise the idea in a commentary for Alien. I may be misremembering, but I think it was on the 1999 standalone DVD which had a ripped Laserdisc commentary. It was definitely before Prometheus was announced. I have a distinct memory of thinking "Dafuk?", and "just as well there's no chance of him making another one".

That commentary had him saying the eggs were to be used as bombs. Nothing about humans in suits.

Some things are just made up as they go along.

George Lucas put more effort than Ridley.
