    • Destro: We'll break your spirit soon enough, my dear Scarlett. Seeing you a groveling slave will provide me with great pleasure. (Laughs) Scarlett: Graveling before a meatball like you, (Moving her feet close to her crossbow) isn't my style, Destro. Destro: You're a paradox, Scarlett. (Turning to see Scarlett aiming her crossbow at him) You little fool. (Scarlett fires at Destro) You've doomed the controls. We're both finished.

    • (Holding Scarlett hostage) Destro: No further. If you shoot, you'll hit your friend. Rock 'N Roll: Step into the clear, Destro, if you got the guts. Destro: (Laughs) I have no time for childish games. I intend to deliver a healthy supply of the meteorite to Cobra and Scarlett will accompany me. I believe the expression is 'Til we meet again.

    • (Hanging onto Breaker after he fell out of the 'copter) Clutch: Let's hear it for big feet.

    • (Over the Ring of Fire in South America) Short Fuze: Hey! Wow! Far out. Steeler: What'd ya see? Short Fuze: What do you think I see for Pete's sake. What are we looking for. If I say, Hey! Wow! Far out! I must have found it right.

    • Stalker: It's now my duty to ask (Gung-Ho plays around with one of the tankers) all the G.I. Joe team members to report to the.. Will you get out of the picture Gung-Ho. Gung-Ho: Sorry, Stalk. They're kind of cute, you know. Better than an electric train set. Vroom. Vroom. Duke: Relax, Stalker. You weren't transmitting when GH took a play break. As far as Cobra knows, we're taking their surrender ultimatum seriously.
