#1 Erica: [after colonel dies] I'll never love anybody again! Robert: If you didnt't love anybody, you wouldn't be here right now...
#2 Darryl Bates: [he and the other Wolverines are gathering food, weapons and survival equipment from Robert Morris's father's store] And grab some toilet paper; I ain't gonna use no leaves.
#3 Col. Strelnikov: [he lectures the Russo-Cuban Army about what must be done regarding the Wolverines] From this moment on... There will be no further reprisals against civilians. This was stupid. Impotence. Comrades... If a fox stole your chickens... Would you slaughter your pig because he saw the fox? No. You would hunt the fox... You would find where it lives and destroy it! And how do we do this? Become a fox.
#4 Col. Andy Tanner: ...The Russians need to take us in one piece, and that's why they're here. That's why they won't use nukes anymore; and we won't either, not on our own soil. The whole damn thing's pretty conventional now. Who knows? Maybe next week will be swords. Darryl Bates: What started it? Col. Andy Tanner: I don't know. Two toughest kids on the block, I guess. Sooner or later, they're gonna fight. Jed Eckert: That simple, is it? Col. Andy Tanner: Or maybe somebody just forget what it was like. Jed Eckert: ...Well, who *is* on our side? Col. Andy Tanner: Six hundred million screaming Chinamen. Darryl Bates: Last I heard, there were a billion screaming Chinamen. Col. Andy Tanner: There *were*. [he throws whiskey on the fire; it ignites violently, suggesting a nuclear explosion]
#5 Mayor Bates: [in Mayor Bates' office, where he is being questioned by Colonel Bella] Daryl, he wouldn't hurt a fly. I know my son, Colonel. He's not the guerrilla type. Colonel Ernesto Bella: According to records, Mayor... your son is a prominent student leader. Mayor Bates: Yes, well... he's a leader, but not in a violent or physical way. You see, Daryl... he's more of a politician, like his father. Colonel Ernesto Bella: A member of an elite paramilitary organization: "Eagle Scouts." Mayor Bates: Yes, but that's not military. If he's alive, he's scared, he's hungry... and he's just as anxious to avoid conflicts as you and me. He's not a troublemaker. Colonel Ernesto Bella: Then who is? Mayor Bates: ...It runs in some of the families. Colonel Ernesto Bella: [to an aide-de-camp] This community is indeed fortunate to have a shepherd like him. Mayor Bates: Well, I just want to see this thing through, Colonel.
#6 The Colonel: You think you're tough for eating beans every day? There's half a million scarecrows in Denver who'd give anything for one mouthful of what you got. They've been under siege for about three months. They live on rats and sawdust bread and sometimes... on each other. At night, the pyres for the dead light up the sky. It's medieval.
#7 Danny: [at the Wolverines' funeral for Colonel Andy Tanner and Arturo "Aardvark" Mondracon] These were good friends. Take them away from here... someplace safe... where this world's war never happened. And as we remember... please let them forget, O Lord... so they can be little again.
#8 [Yuri's 2 fellow soldiers have just been killed by Toni and Robert, and Yuri has managed to escape back to the jeep despite serious wounds] Yuri: [speaking Russian into radio mike] God help me! Yuri: God help me!
[Jed catches up to Yuri at the jeep, armed with a .45 pistol. Yuri looks at him with terror, then turns his head away, knowing what is coming. Jed then executes the Soviet soldier with the pistol]
#9 The Colonel: All that hate's gonna burn you up, kid. Robert: It keeps me warm.
#10 Jed Eckert: [after the deaths of Aardvark and Colonel Tanner] It's kind of strange, isn't it? How the mountains pay us no attention at all. You laugh or you cry... The wind just keeps on blowing. Matt Eckert: You're getting pretty low on feelings, aren't you? Jed Eckert: I can't afford them. Matt Eckert: Even if that had been me instead of Aardvark?
#11 Stepan Gorsky: Boy, say if you're a friend so I will not die alone.
#12 [3 Soviet soldiers on patrol in the highlands of Arapho National Forest have found an arrow at the side of the road] Yuri: [speaking Russian] Look. Look what I've found. An Indian arrow. Soldier #1: [notices it is a manufactured arrow] I did not know these Indians used steel. Yuri: Sure, you fool. They used the melted sabers of Federalist Cossacks. Soldier #1: [notices the platic tail] Did these Indians work in plastic too? Yuri: You idiot, this is bone, polished to a high sheen. Yuri: [after spotting Toni & Erica] Stop! Soldier #2: Watch out! She has a weapon. Soldier #1: [speaking Russian] Stop, damn it! [fires his AK-47]
[Danny has managed to draw a bead on the first soldier & shoots him in the back with an arrow. The man screams & backs away from Erica, then tries to climb up the bank but is pulled off balance by Toni & Erica] Soldier #1: [speaking Russian] Help me, comrades! I'm dying!
[Toni has managed to get control of the man's AK-47 & kills him with it. The second Soviet soldier goes down a hill when Robert steps out from behind a tree. As the soldier raises his AK-47 to shoot, Robert kills him with a shotgun blast. Yuri takes off toward the jeep with Daryl, Robert & Jed in pursuit and shooting at him]
#13 Tom Eckert: [at the Calumet Drive-in, which is now a Communist "re-education camp"] Remember when you used to go in the park and play... and I used to put you on the swings... and both of you were... so damn little? Jed Eckert: I remember. I remember all of it. Tom Eckert: [to Jed and Matt] I ain't gonna be around to pick you up when you fall now. Both of you gotta take care of each other now.
#14 Robert: Wolverines!
#15 Jed Eckert: [in the mountains] Matt and I have been coming up to these mountains with our dad our whole lives. We can hunt, we can fish, we can stay up here a long, long time. Robert: How long, Jed? [fighters and bombers pass overhead] Jed Eckert: [indicating the jets above them] Until we don't hear *that* no more.
#16 KGB Major: Do you want to see me? Colonel Ernesto Bella: Yes... yes. Go to the sporting goods store. From the files obtain forms 4473. These will contain descriptions of weapons, and lists of private ownership.
#17 Matt Eckert: Why don't you make yourself useful? Erica: You wash it! We're never doing your washing again! Me and her is as good as any of you! Matt Eckert: So what's up your ass? Erica: Shut up! Don't you ever say that again! Hear me? Say that again, I'll kill you! Hear me? I'll kill you. Matt Eckert: So what did I do? Toni: What you said was wrong.
#18 Jed Eckert: [they are surveying a wintery landscape, as several tanks gather on both sides to shoot it out] You got across *that*? Col. Andy Tanner: Just part of it. I hope our guys are still there. Jed Eckert: So this is the battlefield? Col. Andy Tanner: It's a real war, kid. It's here every day.
#19 Darryl Bates: [Pouring a can of soup in the pot] That's the last of it... except for the olives. Matt Eckert: We still got plenty of meat left. Danny: Just stuff you shot. Matt Eckert: So tell me, dork, where do you suppose hamburgers come from? Danny: Nobody shoots them. Darryl Bates: We need food.
#20 Col. Andy Tanner: [his dying words, after being killed while dropping a smoke bomb into a Russian tank] Come on, buddies! Come and get 'em! Shoot straight for once, you Army pukes.
