INT. MESS

The entire crew is seated. Hungrily swallowing huge portions of artificial food. The cat eats from a dish on the table.

 KANE
First thing I'm going to do when
we get back is eat some decent
food.

 PARKER
I've had worse than this, but
I've had better too, if you know
what I mean.

 LAMBERT
Christ, you're pounding down this
stuff like there's no tomorrow.

Pause.

 PARKER
I mean I like it.

 KANE
No kidding.

 PARKER
Yeah. It grows on you.

 KANE
It should. You know what they
make this stuff out of...

 PARKER
I know what they make it out of.
So what. It's food now. You're
eating it.

Suddenly Kane grimaces.

 RIPLEY
What's wrong.

Kane's voice strains.

 LAMBERT
What's the matter.

 KANE
I don't know... I'm getting cramps.

The others stare at him in alarm. Suddenly he makes a loud groaning noise. Clutches the edge of the table with his hands. Knuckles whitening.

 ASH
Breathe deeply.

Kane screams.

 KANE
Oh God, it hurts so bad.
It hurts. It hurts.
(stands up)
Ooooooh.

 BRETT
What is it. What hurts.

Kane's face screws into a mask of agony. He falls back into his chair.

 KANE
Ohmygooaaaahh.

A red stain. Then a smear of blood blossoms on his chest. The fabric of his shirt is ripped apart.
A small head the size of a man's fist pushes out. The crew shouts in panic. Leap back from the table. The cat spits, bolts away.

The tiny head lunges forward. Comes spurting out of Kane's chest trailing a thick body.
Splatters fluids and blood in its wake. Lands in the middle of the dishes and food.
Wriggles away while the crew scatters.
Then the Alien being disappears from sight.

Kane lies slumped in his chair. Very dead.
A huge hole in his chest.
The dishes are scattered.
Food covered with blood.

 LAMBERT
No, no, no, no, no.

 BRETT
What was that.What the Christ
was that.

 PARKER
It was growing in him the whole
time and he didn't even know it.

 ASH
It used him for an incubator.

 RIPLEY
That means we've got another
one.

 DALLAS
Yeah.And it's loose on the
ship.

Slowly they gather around Kane's gutted corpse. Then they all look at one another.
Then at Kane. Dead on the table.
