Colonel Isaac Johnson: I won. You lost. Get used to the idea, son.
Bob Lee Swagger: I'm not your son.

This is a country, where the Secretary of Defense can go on T.V., and tell the American public, oh, that "This is about freedom! It's not about oil!" And nobody questions him, cuz they don't wanna hear the answer, because it's a lie! There are only so many places at the table, Gunnie. Now, are you on the INSIDE, or are you on the OUT?

Senator Charles F. Meachum

Captain Darrow: Excuse me, general... but what about the fucking money?
General Hummel: There is no fucking money. The mission's over.
Captain Frye: Bull shit it's over.
Major Tom Baxter: You're talking to a General, soldier. Maintain discipline.
Captain Darrow: I'm not a soldier, Major. The day we took hostages, we became... mercenaries. And mercenaries get paid. I want my fucking money.

Look, I'm just a biochemist. Most of the time, I work in a little glass jar and lead a very uneventful life. I drive a Volvo, a beige one. But what I'm dealing with here is one of the most deadly substances the earth has ever known, so what say you cut me some FRIGGIN' SLACK?

It's okay, kid. It's me.

Indiana Jones

Bob Lee Swagger: I don't really like the President much. Didn't like the one before that, much, either.
Colonel Isaac Johnson: You like the idea of the President, living in a free country. Do we allow America to be ruled by thugs?
Bob Lee Swagger: Sure, some years we do.

Louis Dobbler: You can kill him from that far away?
Bob Lee Swagger: At a mile and a half the bullet's gonna strike with more energy than a .44 magnum, point blank. Yeah, I think you can kill him.

Inspector Cobb: We'll be back to pick you up in 15 minutes.
John McClane: Take your time. I expect to be dead in four.

Jack Payne: You know what they say is the first thing that a man feels when he shoots a civilian?
Bob Lee Swagger: The recoil of the rifle?
Jack Payne: [snickers] Yeah.
Bob Lee Swagger: Very original.

Charlie: Good morning, angels.
Dylan, Natalie, Alex: Good morning, Charlie!

John Mason: Your mother, she was very special.
Jade Angelou: Yeah, she was. But I don't think that we should romanticize what happened between you and her. Two people meet in a bar after a Led Zeppelin concert, head out, and I was the result.
John Mason: Well, I'd like to think it would have led somewhere if...
Jade Angelou: If what? Six federal marshals hadn't kicked down her door and dragged you back to prison?

Mason, the second you don't respect this, it kills you.
