    • Rico: Gos, how fast can you blow up this taco stand? Gossard: One charge attached to the generator will send it to Kamehameha! But doesn't that kinda defeat the purpose of raising the tower?

    • Zimm: Permission to speak freely, sir. Rico: For cryin' out loud, speak all you want. Take charge, I am begging you! Zimm: Not what I want, not why I came. You need to know some hard facts. One. You were assigned to me in basic by an arrangement made by your high school teacher, Jean Razak. Two. You were assigned to Razak's Roughnecks by your per an arrangement made by your basic training instructor, me. Jean and I were friends a long time, usually saw eye to eye. You were no exception. Day one, we had you pegged as a leader. Rico: Why? Zimm: Look in the mirror kid. You're young but your more like Jean Razak if you tried. Rico: But what if you were wrong? What if Razak was wrong? Zimm: If you respect Jean Razak as much as you claim, you won't be concerned with proving him wrong.

    • (T'Phai cuts the webbing off of Max) Max: Hey! Hey! Watch it with that thing! T'Phai: I simply wish to help. Max: I don't need your help. T'Phai: Private... Max: I don't need a guardian angel. How about a battle plan instead, huh? The bugs are making us look like idiots here! I mean, what's with the LT?! The only Roughneck that was worth a lick was the dead guy, Razak! (Rico and Flores are in another room and hear what has been said) Flores: Ohhh, I'm gonna tear that jerk...Johnny, you're not buying that garbage? It's his first battle. He's scared. Besides, the guy's a Brutto. Foot genetically inserted in mouth. No one else is saying... Rico: They're thinking it. I mean, I'm thinking it. I'm not Razak! Flores: No one's asking you to be Razak! We have faith in Rico! And we'll put our lives on the line to prove it! Rico: That's the problem, Diz! I'm gonna get you all killed!

    • Doc: LT, bugs are still heading South toward Honolulu. Lots of them. Higgins: Shouldn't we alert S.I.C.O.N. and let them know their flank's exposed? Gossard: Good luck. This tower relay is half of communications for Oahu. When it's down, we might as well try two cups and a string.

    • T'Phai: The first wave heads inland. Flores: Guess they did what they set out to do. Rico: Now what? Zimm: lieutenant wants options. Let's hear 'em now. Doc: We still need cover! Gossard: If the bugs aren't using that outpost... Rico: Right-right! Let's take it back! Zimm: You heard the man! Door's around front. Flores, T-Phai, Brutto, to the left with me! Rest of you, follow the leader to the right! (talking to himself) Gotta learn the rest of their names.
