Battlefield Earth - Phyclo's Knowledge
At the part where Terl shows Johnnie that he has capture his girlfriend and he threatens to blow a human's head off but Ker does instead. -Throughout the entire movie humans are referred to as "man-animals" but at this one point Terl refers to the humans as "humans" when he says "silly humans". Was there some part in the movie that we didn't see where he learned the correct term and if so why did he continue to use the term "man-animal".

And also, how could the aliens survive with such big heads? Man, they must have been made fun of at school as kids! "Hey, Melon head!" Eh,...
