I like to get kissed before I get fucked.

[to Maddy Bowen] you come here with your laptop computers, your malaria medicine and you little bottles of hand sanitizer and think you can change the outcome, huh?

Danny Archer

Dia, What are you doing? Dia! Look at me, look at me. What are you doing? You are Dia Vendy, of the proud Mende tribe. You are a good boy who loves soccer and school. Your mother loves you so much. She waits by the fire making plantains, and red palm oil stew with your sister N'Yanda and the new baby. The cows wait for you. And Babu, the wild dog who minds no one but you. I know they made you do bad things, but you are not a bad boy. I am your father who loves you. And you will come home with me and be my son again.

I will find you... If it takes my life

Danny Archer: So you're a fisherman, ha? What do you catch mostly?
Solomon Vandy: Fish.

Solomon Vandy: [trying to rescue his son] Dia, come on.
Dia Vandy: Leave me alone!
Solomon Vandy: Dia it is me, your father. Let's go.
Dia Vandy: I don't know you! Fisherman!
[to the other soldiers]
Dia Vandy: Get him, get him!

Prostitute: I'm clean, no HIV.
Danny Archer: Yeah, I've heard that before.

Maddy Bowen: You lost both your parents.
Danny Archer: That's a polite way of putting it, yea. Mum was raped and shot and uh... Dad was decapitated and hung from a hook in the barn. I was nine... boo-hoo right?

Sometimes I wonder... will God ever forgive us for what we've done to each other? Then I look around and I realize... God left this place a long time ago.

In America, it's bling bling. But out here it's bling bang.

Danny Archer

Maddy Bowen: The world is falling apart and all we hear about is blowjob-gate.
Danny Archer: When was the last time the world wasn't falling apart, huh?

Out here, people kill each other as a way of life. It's always been like that.
