Broken Arrow (1996)
Vic Deakins: [while fighting with Hale] Alright, you're bleeding, aren't ya? Well, that's good. Let's see if we can get any more out of you.

Riley Hale: You're out of your mind.
Vic Deakins: Yeah. Ain't it cool?
Riley Hale: I'm serious, Deak, your mind has taken a walk off the map.
Vic Deakins: Maybe. But I'm still gonna kick your ass.

Kelly: [Deakins has just activated the nuke] Shut that sonuvabitch down, now! This ain't what I signed on for. I'm not ready to die, not for you.
Vic Deakins: Everybody dies, Kelly. I'm as good a reason as any.

Vic Deakins: I just realized something. I never actually killed anyone before. I mean, I dropped bombs on Baghdad, but, uh... never face to face.
[pause]
Vic Deakins: . I don't know what the big deal is. I really don't.

Vic Deakins: Would you mind not shooting at the thermonuclear weapons?

Major Vic Deakins: Nah, flying doesn't mean what it used to mean to me.
Capt. Riley Hale: Not the flying - carrying the nukes. I know you. You love having the power of God at your fingertips. You get off on it.

Pritchett: You assured me everything would go smoothly.
Vic Deakins: Everything is going smoothly, I assure you.

Vic Deakins: Well, I do appreciate the money that you and your associates have invested in the operation. But this IS an operation, it's a MILITARY operation. And YOU don't know DICK about that! Now *I* have been in the military for over 20 years. I planned and flew over 100 missions in the Gulf. I put these boys together because they are *motivated* and they are *highly trained* like me! This is what I do, Mr. Pritchett! And this is BATTLE! And battle is a highly *fluid* situation. You - You plan on your contingencies, and I have. You keep your initiative, and I will. But what you don't do is *share command*! It's NEVER a good IDEA!
Pritchett: It's still my money.
Vic Deakins: And if we succeed, you and your friends will get a ton of it.
Pritchett: *If* we're successful?
Vic Deakins: Look, Mr. Pritchett, I will deliver the weapons to the destination. But I can't depend and I can't guarantee that those assholes in Washington won't do something stupid like... not pay.
Pritchett: What if they don't?
Vic Deakins: Well, if they don't, the southwest will be a quiet neighbourhood for, uh, about ten thousand years.

Vic Deakins: [after the explosion] I say god-damn what a rush.

Riley Hale: There's no difference between you and a guy who shoots up a schoolyard. You've both got a-a head full of bad wiring.
Vic Deakins: What was that?
Riley Hale: You're fucked in the head, Deak.
Vic Deakins: [Fires wildly at him] Hah.
Riley Hale: I pissed him off.

Vic Deakins: Hale. Pick up. Pick up!
[wheedling]
Vic Deakins: C'mon buddy, pick up the 'phone.
Riley Hale: "Buddy," huh? Son of a bitch, you tried to kill me. The friendship is over.
Vic Deakins: Well that doesn't mean I don't like you. Hell, I'm impressed.

Vic Deakins: You know what it feels like to be knocked out? Your brain presses against your skull, and it feels like this.

Vic Deakins: You just saved me 3 million dollars. I owe you one.
Terry Carmichael: Shoot yourself. We'll call it square.

Vic Deakins: Care for a Coke or something?

Vic Deakins: The clock is ticking.

Vic Deakins: You know, Hale, I considered bringing you in on this. You know why I didn't?
Riley Hale: 'Cause I would have said "no"?
Vic Deakins: Nah, if you had said no, I'd have just killed you. I was afraid you were gonna say yes. 'Cause you don't have the balls to go through with something like this, we both know that.

Vic Deakins: Mr. Pritchett, would you mind stepping outside?
[Pushes Pritchett's corpse out of the Humvee]

Pritchett: Oh, God! Oh, God! How does that gunship fit into your grand strategy? You don't know what you're doing, do you? This is out of control! I must have been...!
Vic Deakins: [Deakins crushes Pritchett's throat, by striking it with a Mag-lite. Pritchett falls back in his seat, choking to death] Hush... hush!

Vic Deakins: I say goddamn what a rush!
[Deakins looks at the wreckage of the chopper]
Vic Deakins: Whoo!
Kelly: Son of a Bitch! Shockwave took down the damn chopper!
Vic Deakins: That's EMP! Electro Magnetic Pulse! Nuclear blast sends it out for miles. Everything electrical *shuts down* including choppers and radios. Hell, we just shut down McMurran's field communications! That oughta put a *pretty little dent* in their response time, huh!
Kelly: Deak, you da man!
Vic Deakins: I'm da man.

Vic Deakins: Smile boys we're about to retire!

[Hale has a shotgun on Deakins, but Deakins is holding a remote for the bomb]
Riley Hale: You lose.
Vic Deakins: I've still got my finger on the trigger. That's the *remote* trigger. See if I push this button here
[DETONATE]
Vic Deakins: *You lose!* But if I push this button here,
[CANCEL]
Vic Deakins: the weapon is disarmed.
Riley Hale: [cocks the shotgun] So why don't you disarm it then?
Vic Deakins: I'm not in the mood.
