    • Scott Parazynski: (upon reaching the summit) Oh man, one of the happiest days of my life- this is the roof of the world, baby! That was a lot harder than I ever thought it would be. Two years in the making, actually 47 years in the dreaming, but it's just so powerful to be here.

    • Eric Simonson: (as his climbers hit the Cornice Traverse, a knife-edged ridge) It's actually good that it's dark, they can't see that it's 8,000 ft down. This is not a forgiving mountain. This is a place where if you push yourself beyond, you just don't come back.

    • Mike Hamill: (as they begin their summit day at night) You're walking across this plateau in the dark, and you feel like you're on the moon. It's a pretty spooky feeling, and uh, you know, you feel like you could just drop off the other side of the world.

    • Louis Carstens: I'm anxious, absolutely. I've never really thought about death on any other mountains, but I've been thinking a lot about death on Everest. You know, there's so much that can go wrong.

    • Mike Hamill: (when Paul is ordered to climb back down) Climbing Mt Everest is all about enduring the pain. Sometimes you got to push through a little pain to summit this thing, but we can't take any chances.
