What if my problem wasn't that I don't understand people but that I don't like them? What if I was the kind of person who was obliged to hurt you for this? I mean physically. I think you'd have to believe afterward, if you could, that agreeing to participate and then backing out at the critical moment was a mistake. Because that's what I'm telling you, as clearly as I can.

Lou Bloom

I started this war killing Germans in Africa. Now I'm killing Germans in Germany. I promised my crew a long time ago I'd keep them alive. I've been with these fine gentlemen for years.

Wardaddy

Wardaddy: Why are you here? You're here to kill him. You know why he's here? He's here to kill you. He's here to kill you. He's here to rip your throat out, put a bullet in your… I'm trying to teach you something. Are you here to get me killed? Are you going to get me killed? I need you to perform. Just get it over with. Just get it over with.
Norman Ellison: I can't do it.
Wardaddy: Yes, you can. I know you can. He kills you or you kill him. It's simple math. You or him: pick.
Norman Ellison: Just kill me, kill me, kill me, kill me, kill me, please. I can't do it.

Wardaddy: Fire! Hit that son of a bitch! Hit 'em!
Trini Garcia: Do your job! Do what you're here for!

Boyd Swan: Wait until you see it.
Norman Ellison: See what?
Boyd Swan: What a man can do to another man.

Norman Ellison: I'm scared.
Wardaddy: I'm scared too.

These troops get by you, we're all dead in the water. All we got is you.

Captain Waggoner

If you think it can't get worse, it can. The killing's not done. The dying's not done.

Wardaddy

Norman Ellison: They're coming.
Wardaddy: How many?
Norman Ellison: They're 300 of them.
Trini Garcia: It's five against 300.
Wardaddy: We ain't never run before. Why we gonna run now?

Best job I ever had. [The rest of the cast then repeat this line.]

Wardaddy

I had the best gunner in the entire United Army in S.E. Now I have you.

Wardaddy

You see this right here? That is your heart line. You're gonna have one great love in your life.
