  • Quotes

    • 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.

    • Cobra Commander: Where are you going? I've arranged a banquet.
      Destro: We still lack the third element to power our Mass Device. At this delicate juncture, I shall take no chance of anything going wrong. I will lead the search for that final ingredient myself.
      Cobra Commander: Paranoid fool. (Throwing a turkey leg) We've won I tell you.

    • Stalker: I'd do anything if I didn't have to be the one to deliver this message. But the president and the joint chiefs have just ordered me to assemble the entire G.I. Joe force and surrender. As directed by Cobra.
      Airborne: No way.
      Breaker: You putting us on. Right, Stalk.
      Clutch: You're out of your gord.
      Scarlett: Come off it, Stalker.
