    • QUOTES (5)

      • Spender: I smell death, Captain.
        Wilder: What makes you so sure, Spender?
        Spender: Just the wind. Only the wind.

      • Cheroke: A whole people wiped out. Insane.
        Spender: Right, Cheroke. Insane. Like saying that mumps killed the Greeks. Or that the noble Romans died of athlete's foot. An entire race, dies. Not with dignity and majesty, but from a child's dose of chicken pox. A little gift from Earth.

      • Wilder: Spender, this, this expedition isn't going to ruin Mars. I'll make sure of that.
        Spender: Well, we humans have a talent for ruining big, beautiful things. The only reason we didn't put a hot dog stand on the Moon was because it's a little out of the way. Make a good commercial proposition.

      • Spender: I talked to the Martian.
        Cheroke: You understood him?
        Spender: I told you, I learned their language.
        Cheroke: What did he say?
        Spender: He said, "Give me your boots." So I gave him my boots. And he said, "Give me your uniform." I gave him my uniform. "Give me your gun," he said. I gave him my gun. And then he said, "Come with me. See what happens." And I followed him back to camp. He's here. Now.
        Cramer: I don't see any Martian.
        Spender: Sorry. (shoots his teammates dead)

      • Spender: And you won't let me stay here without trouble, neither, will you?
        Wilder: No.
        Spender: Then I'll have to kill you all.
        Wilder: You're an optimist. We've got you surrounded.
        Spender: But I have a reason to fight. That makes me a better killer.
