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

Moat: It is hard to fill a cup that is already full.
Jake Sully: My cup is empty. Trust me. Just ask Dr. Augustine. I'm no scientist.
Moat: Then what are you?
Jake Sully: I was a marine. A warrior... of the uh... Jarhead Clan.

When I was lying in the V.A. hospital with a big hole blown through the middle of my life, I stared having these dreams of flying. I was free. But sooner or later, you always have to wake up.

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: I take care of my own son. You get me what I need, I make sure that when you rotate home you get your legs back, your real legs.
Jake Sully: That sounds real good sir.

The aliens went back to their dying home. Only a few were chosen to stay.

Don't you get it? You're a rat in a maze.
