[Mortally wounded, realizing she's at the tree of souls] "I need to get some samples."

Dr. Grace Augustine

Col. Quaritch: You crossed the line!
Col. Quaritch: [Punches Jake] Wheel this meat outta here.
Col. Quaritch: [a short time later] You let me down me son!... So, you find yourself some local tail, and you just completely forget what team you're playin' for?

Don't play with that. You'll go blind.

Dr. Grace Augustine

[to his ikran on their first flight] Shut up and fly straight!

Jake Sully

Jake Sully: It's over.
Col. Quaritch: Nothing's over while I'm breathing.
Jake Sully: I was kinda hoping you'd say that.

[after getting shot] This is gonna ruin my whole day!

Dr. Grace Augustine

Thanks Jake, I'm gettin all emotional, 'might just give you a big wet kiss!

Col. Quaritch

Tsu'tey: YOU!
[pushes Jake, Neytiri exclaims]
Tsu'tey: You mating with this woman?
Dr. Grace Augustine: Oh, shit!

Dr. Grace Augustine: Hey Marine!
Jake Sully: [Turns and sees Grace's Avatar] Grace?
Dr. Grace Augustine: Well who'd you expect, numbnuts?

Selfridge: Isn't that the whole point of your little puppet show? You walk like them, you talk like them. We build them a school, teach them English, but after how many years the relations with the indigenous are only getting worse.
Dr. Grace Augustine: Yeah, well that tends to happen when you use machine guns on them.

Selfridge: Look you're supposed to be winning the hearts and minds of the natives. Isn't that the whole point of your little puppet show? If you walk like them, you talk like them they'll trust you. We build them a school, teach them English. But after - how many years - the relations with the indigenous are only getting worse.
Dr. Grace Augustine: Yeah, well that tends to happen when you use machine guns on them.
Selfridge: Right. Come with me. You see this? This is why we're here. Because this little gray rock sells for $20 million a kilo. This is what pays for the whole party, and it's what pays for your science. Those savages are threatening our whole operation. We're on the brink of war and you're supposed to be finding me a diplomatic solution. So use what you've got, and get me some results

I can do it with minimal casualties to the indigenous. We'll clear them out with gas first. It'll be humane. More or less.

Col. Quaritch
