Butterfield: Twenty-two robberies, over four hundred thousand dollars in losses.
Ben Wade: Ya'll notice he didn't mention any of the lives I've taken?

It's probably cheaper just to let me rob the damned thing.

Ben Wade

Captain Miller: This is all? That's all that've made it?
Sergeant Horvath: We're scattered pretty bad, sir. There's bound to be more of us.
Captain Miller: Not enough, this is not enough.
Sergeant Horvath: Dog One-It's got to be the cut on the right, or is it the one on the left, shit!
Captain Miller: No, no. Vierville is to the west of us, so this is Dog One.

Sergeant Horvath: Why don't you just hand 'em blindfolds, Captain?
Captain Miller: All we can do here is die.

Sergeant Horvath: Maybe I should go up the middle, sir.
Captain Miller: The way you run? I don't think so.
Sergeant Horvath: Maybe I should go up the left, sir.
Captain Miller: Maybe you should shut up!

Corporal Upham: "War educates the senses, calls into action the will, perfects the physical constitution, brings men into such swift and close collision in critical moments that man measures man."
Captain Miller: I guess that's Emerson's way of finding the bright side.

Corporal Upham: Uh, Caparzo, right?
Private Caparzo: Hey Corporal, drop dead! And another thing, whenever you salute the Captain you make him an open target for the Germans so don't do it, especially when I'm standing near him!

Sergeant Horvath: That's quite a view.
Captain Miller: Yes it is. Quite a view.

Private Ryan: Uh sir? Where am I to be during all this?
Captain Miller: No more than two feet away from me. And that's not negotiable.

Back home, when I'd tell people what I do for a living, they'd think, "Well, yeah, that figures." But over here, it's a... a big mystery. So I guess I've changed some.

Captain Miller

I just know that every man I kill, the farther away from home I feel.

Captain Miller

Captain Miller: Mike, Are you all right?
Sergeant Horvath: I just got the wind knocked out of me. I'm fine!
