[impersonating Rev. Jesse Jackson] Why we are on this particular mission, we'll never know. But I do know, here today, that the Black Knights will emerge vic-torious once again.

Capt. Jimmy Wilder

We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate ... our Independence Day!

Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. Mankind. That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice

That's what you get! Ha Ha! Look at you! Ship's all banged up! Who's the man? Huh? Who's the man? Wait till I get another plane! I'm a line ya friends up right beside you! Where ya at, huh? Where ya at?

Captain Steven Hiller

Captain Steven Hiller: You really think you can do all that bullshit you just said?

If I had known I was gonna meet the president, I would've worn a tie. Look at me, I look like a schliemiel.

[punches out alien] Welcome to earth.

Captain Steven Hiller

David Levinson: Tunnel. Tunnel. Tunnel. Left, exit, exit.
Captain Steven Hiller: Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!

Captain Steven Hiller: Oops.
David Levinson: What do you mean, oops?
Captain Steven Hiller: Some jerk put this...
David Levinson: Don't say "oops" ...
Captain Steven Hiller: What do you say we try that again?
David Levinson: Yes, yes. Yes. Without the "oops." Thataway.

If you're so smart, tell me something, how come you go to M.I.T. for 8 years to become a cable repairman?
