"I'd take pleasure in guttin' you, boy. I'd take pleasure in guttin' you... boy." What is wrong with these people, huh? Mason? Don't you think there's a lot of, uh, a lot of anger flowing around this island? Kind of a pubescent volatility? Don't you think? A lotta angst, a lot of "I'm sixteen, I'm angry at my father" syndrome? I mean, grow up! We're stuck on an island with a bunch of violence-for-pleasure-seeking psycopathic marines, shame on them!


FBI Agent: He is my age now, for Christ's sake. I have to get up three times a night to take a piss!

Goodspeed: The mission is not complete!
Mason: It is. When this is over, you'll go back home, driving Carla and the baby insane, in your beige Volvo. And I'll be dead, or back in prison which is the same thing.
Goodspeed: You're not leaving--arrgh! (Mason punches him and walks off) All right, I'll do it myself! I got three weeks weapons training. I'll kick the...hell out of a platoon full of Marines! No problem.

Gen. Hummel: The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. Thomas Jefferson.
Mason: Patriotism is a virtue of the vicious, according to Oscar Wilde. [Hummel strikes him in the back of the neck] Thank you for making my point.

Welcome to the rock!

Your best? Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and **** the prom queen!

Now Womack, you're between The Rock, and a hard case. How's your bowling arm?

And...this is not combat. It's an act of lunacy, General Sir. Personally, I think you're a ****ing idiot.

I love pressure, I eat it for breakfast.

Let's see, we have some dirty magazines, Stone Age cave girls in the raw. Kinky.
