    • QUOTES (7)

      • Gloria: No wonder VENOM wants to get it's hands on it.
        Matt: Yes, VENOM's out there someplace, but where? The jet's due to land in less than two hours.
        Bruce: The haystack is a large place to search for the needle.

      • Dutch McKenna: Since your the principal investor in Project Hermes, you should be aware of some strange goings-on.
        Matt: What's wrong, Dutch? Not more reports of gremlins in the cockpit, i hope.

      • (Matt follows the Hermes Jet in Thunderhawk)
        Matt Trakker: Keep tracking it, Bruce. Its heading fourteen degrees north-west.
        Bruce Sato: Something's wrong, Matt. According to the radar, the jet is travelling due south-east! You're going in the wrong direction!
        Matt Trakker: Do another scan, i see the baby right in front of me!
        Bruce Sato: Negative, there is no jet in your vicinity!
        Dusty Hayes: What in tarnation's going on?
        Bruce Sato: Even the wolf circles back, leaving two sets of tracks to confuse its pursuers.
        Dusty Hayes: Huh? I don't see no wolves, must be watching a different channel!
        Matt Trakker: VENOM must be sending out a false radar signal, to fool the control tower!
        Gloria Baker: Makes sense, and that partially explains what happened to the disappearing cargo plane!
        Bruce Sato: The tower saw the plane on radar, but it really wasn't there!

      • Hermes Jet Pilot: You won't get away with this!
        Vanessa Warfield: Just don't try anything smart, or i'll give you a taste of this. Whip, on!
        (The pilot is knocked down by the shot from Vanessa's mask, Mayhem laughs maniacally)

      • Matt Trakker: How about that, a vanishing airport, should of known. When VENOM moves in, real estate goes down!

      • Bruce Sato: Sometimes the indirect approach is best!
        (Fires a rocket from Rhino that hits a boulder, causing it to flatten Jackhammer like a pancake)

      • Matt: Gloria, we owe you our lives.
        Gloria: And you owe me a trip to beauty shop!
