In July 2003, I took a morning stroll along the Hudson River in New York City. Along the rotting wharves of the early morning, I noticed grafitti which read "Got to Stay Awake, Must Warn Others." I recorded this in my travel journal. It struck me as humorous and creepy. At the time I thought it was familiar, but I couldn't place it. Later it occurred to me it was, if not a quote, at least a theme of the 1956 science fiction - horror film "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." This film is about aliens who take over all the residents of a town.
Anyway, I had great fun with this comment. At work we got silly "warning others" and "staying awake."
