    • QUOTES (16)

      • Rico: Diz, when we get back to the Valley Forge you should take it easy. So...You know...I can pick up your meals and stuff.
        Flores: Rico, when we get back to the Valley Forge, do me one big favor.
        Rico: Absolutely.
        Flores: Go back to being a jerk, I liked you better that way.

      • Higgins: (narrating) No matter what happens, no matter what horrors they face, these troopers are like family. They devote themselves to the safety of the squad and care deeply about each other. That is what separates us from the bugs. And that is our key to victory.

      • Jenkins: When we were in the transporter, I received a message from the bugs.
        Rico: I thought it was jumbled?
        Jenkins: I don't know where it came from, but it was strong. The sender wanted me to deliver it.
        Razak: And...
        Jenkins: The bugs want us to know... That they won't stop until the entire human race... Is exterminated.

      • Razak: Teams of two for a wide perimeter search. Doc, you're with me. Brutto, take Flores. Rico, you and T'Phai.
        Rico: Sir, you can't team me up with that...
        Razak: In war, the Ape next to you is your lifeline. Your brother.

      • (Viewing a split in the path.)
        Jenkins: Right side, Sarge.
        Brutto: When I want a crystal ball Jenkins, I'll call for a gypsy. (To Doc) We go right.

      • Brutto: Hey, Paperboy! I told you not to point that thing (camera) at me?!
        Rico: Face it, Sarge. Celebrity is the price you pay for being so darn good looking.
        (Higgins laughs)
        Brutto: Laugh it up. But is that lens is in my face one more time, your camera is going to get a real good close-up of your lower intestine.
        Razak: Rico! Brutto! Higgins! Zip it.

      • (Jenkins checks Flores out to see what is wrong with her)
        Jenkins: Claustrophobia.
        Brutto: She's afraid of enclosed spaces? You think she could have mentioned that little detail a bit sooner? Like before we got trapped in a bug shoot?
        Rico: Back off, Sarge!
        Brutto: You want to make me, greenie? That little gal pal of yours is a liability!

      • Doc: (narrating There's no question. Being in peak physical condition is important if you want to survive. That's what makes this squad so tough. Everybody's at the top of their game.

      • Gossard: Hey, LT. What's up?
        Razak: Not your performance rating.

      • Rico: She was impressed.
        Jenkins: What exactly did she say?
        Rico: It's not what she said; it's-- it's the way she looked at me.
        Jenkins: So, she didn't say anything?
        Rico: No...
        Jenkins: Does the word "pathetic" mean anything to you?
        Flores: How about "showboat"? That ring a bell?
        Rico: Diz, I was trying to get a better shot.
        Flores: Spare me. I know exactly what you were doing and I guarantee you it didn't work.
        Jenkins: See Rico? When some girls want you to know how they feel, they just come right out and tell you.

      • Flores: You accuse me of taking risks? That's a laugh.
        Rico: What are you talking about?
        Flores: That time in the cave when you were trying to impress Carmen...
        Rico: Get serious! I was only doing my job!
        Flores: Oh, please! Do I look like an idiot?!
        Rico: You said it, not me.

      • (Rico jumps into position acting like he heard something)
        Flores: Down, hero. She's not looking.

      • Flores: Unbelievable! No matter where I go, there's flygirl in my face!
        Jenkins: Ya know, Diz. You might actually like Carmen if you got to know here...(Flores grunts) Or not.

      • Razak: (narrating) These men and women put aside their own emotional frailties and personal problems for one common goal, victory over the enemy. Nothing gets in the way of a Roughneck mission.

      • Higgins: (narrating) Razak's Roughnecks are just one of the thousands of M.I. squads battling the bugs each and every day. Before joining this war, each was an individual. Now, according to their leader, Lt. Jean Razak, the Roughnecks are a team.

      • Higgins: (narrating) Sometimes the news that gets reported is good, but most times it's bad, especially when you're talking about a war. Unfortunately, S.I.C.O.N. brass weren't exactly thrilled with the coverage they'd been receiving recently. I guess us Fed-Net reporters been a little too negative about our troops chances against the bugs and the citizens back home were starting to get nervous.
