Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: There's nothing like a bug hunt to get your juices flowing! Cpl. Jeff Gossard: So, what do you do to relax, Flores? Bungee jump without the cord? Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: Hey! No guts, no glory. Pvt. Johnny Rico: [mutters to Jenkins] No brains. Pvt. Carl Jenkins: No kidding. Pvt. Carl Jenkins: [Observing the battlefield on Pluto] They never mentioned this in the commercials. Pvt. Johnny Rico: I think we should sue. Sgt. Francis Brutto: [after finding out that Lieutenant Razak makes the decision to go underground in order to save Rico on their first mission in Pluto] Lieutenant is insane! Cpl. Richard 'Doc' LaCroix: Hey, we're fighting giant bugs on freaking Pluto, man! We're all insane! Lt. Jean Razak: [after stopping Private Flores from nearly shooting Rico and Brutto] Flores! You're still making the same mistakes you made as a student! Think first, act second! Pvt. Johnny Rico: [after getting the order to bring a marauder suit up a mountain and hearing the consequences of the damage to the suit] What comes from nothing is nothing Sgt. Francis Brutto: What was that? Pvt. Johnny Rico: Nothing! Pvt. Johnny Rico: [after saving Higgins and General Redwing] All right, apes, we still have pests to control! Gen. Miriam Redwing: Rico! Thanks for the save, Sergeant. I'm not complaining, but you should have killed me to keep what I know from that brain. Pvt. Johnny Rico: That was
Plan B. Gen. Miriam Redwing: Very good. There's no way I'm allowing a unit this effective to be split up. Pvt. Johnny Rico: You'll assign us a new lieutenant? Gen. Miriam Redwing: No. I don't have another one to spare. Pvt. Johnny Rico: Then... Gen. Miriam Redwing: I'm offering you a battlefield promotion, son. Pvt. Johnny Rico: Me, an L. T. ? [Redwing nods] Pvt. Johnny Rico: But what about officers' training school and all that? Gen. Miriam Redwing: You can play cadet when the war is over. Do you want the job or not? Pvt. Johnny Rico: Not! [Flores elbows him] Pvt. Johnny Rico: But I'll take it, until I'm history or until you find someone better. Sgt. Charlie Zim: [notices that Rico is not confident enough to be the leading lieutenant for the Roughnecks] Permission to speak, sir. Pvt. Johnny Rico: For crying out loud, speak all you want! Take charge! I'm begging you! Sgt. Charlie Zim: Not what I want, not what I came here for. You need to know some hard facts. First of all, you were assigned to me during basic training as per requested by your high school teacher, Jean Razak. Second of all, you were assigned to Jean Razak's unit, the Roughnecks as per requested made by your drill instructor, me. Jean and I were close friends. We usually see eye-to-eye, but you were no exception. You were pegged as a leader ever since day one. Pvt. Johnny Rico: Why? Sgt. Charlie Zim: You're young and you've got what it counts. You couldn't be more like Jean Razak even if you tried. Pvt. Johnny Rico: What if you're wrong? What if Razak is wrong? Sgt. Charlie Zim: If you respect Jean Razak as you claim, you do not have to worry about proving him wrong. Cpl. Richard 'Doc' LaCroix: Radical reconstructive surgery is the only option. Cpl. Jeff Gossard: Leg's that bad? Cpl. Richard 'Doc' LaCroix: Leg's fine. I was talking about your face. Pvt. Robert Higgins: Remember the Roughnecks! The best Earth had to offer! Pvt. Johnny Rico: [after saving Carmen after she crashlands on Klendathu] Expecting Prince Charming? Lt. Carmen Ibanez: What? No white horse? Pvt. Johnny Rico: [after being given the order to complete a mission on Klendathu] What happened to "The Roughnecks never leave a man behind? " Lt. Jean Razak: That's the advantage of being the boss. You don't have to follow your own orders. Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: [while standing next to Brutto] Jeez, Sarge will it kill you to shower once in a while? You smell like the south end of a north-bound plasma bug!
Sgt. Francis Brutto
: Hey babe, REAL men smell, and REAL women like it. T'Phai: That is true. My mate chose me for my scent. Sgt. Francis Brutto: Colonel, you're my type of guy. Pvt. Robert Higgins: Lieutenant, um, about T'Phai. Lt. Jean Razak: Change the subject, Higgins. Pvt. Robert Higgins: Sir, no, sir. See, any other day, you'd be on my case for lagging behind or the Sarge for being the sarge. Now everything is the Colonel's fault? Lt. Jean Razak: It's not that simple. Pvt. Robert Higgins: An ape is an ape, L. T. You said it *IS* that simple. [a bug grabs Razak, and tries to pull him away from the ship, he pulls out a hand grenade] Lt. Jean Razak: Let go. Pvt. Johnny Rico: NEGATIVE, SIR. [Releases Razac, the grenade explodes. Johnny grabs a rifle lying on the platform. Rico screams] Pvt. Johnny Rico: No! Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: Rico! [Johnny starts shooting] Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: No! [Johnny continues shooting] Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: . Johnny, No! Lt. Walker: [Rico and Dizzy enter the skiff] Sgt. Rico, where's Lt. Razack? Pvt. Johnny Rico: Gone. Cpl. Jeff Gossard: What? T'Phai: It cannot be. Pvt. Robert Higgins: No Pvt. Johnny Rico: Gossard, detonate the charges! [Gossard doesn't react] Pvt. Johnny Rico: Gossard! Detonate! Now! [pushes his way past Gossard, to access the controls. He can't figure out how to detonate, Gossard activates the detonator] Lt. Walker: Blue Leader, Operation Washout is underway. [Gossard climbs a mountain and plants a bomb] Cpl. Jeff Gossard: Okay idiot, now where do you shoot from? [Gossard plants a charge on the generator and everyone gets into a shelter] Pvt. Johnny Rico: This shelter will withstand the blast right? Cpl. Jeff Gossard: You're asking me NOW? Sgt. Francis Brutto: [after escaping from a Kamikaze Rippler bug on Hydora] Looks like something's got a crush on you. Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: Not mutual! Pvt. Robert Higgins: [after viewing a previous clip of Johnny Rico blaming T'Phai for Dizzy Flores's capture on Tesca Nemarosa] I am fired. Pvt. Robert Higgins: [after viewing a clip of Dizzy asking Johnny Rico to go back to being a jerk] I am *SO* fired.
