Admiral Reigart: You still got your boots, have you, cowboy?
Chris Burnett: Roger. They were tied on.

Chris Burnett: [being chased by the S.A.M] Chaff! Chaff! Chaff!

Chris Burnett: You're an optimist, sir. See I had you figured for a grouch.

Chris Burnett: Golden Nest, Archangel Zero-Six! We have been engaged!

Miroslav Lokar: [Stackhouse is being interrogated after he is captured by Serb troops] Are you alone?
Stackhouse: Correct.
Chris Burnett: [the Serb troops, along with Lokar, leave and Stackhouse is watched by Sasha. Burnett observes from a nearby hill and sees Sasha execute Stackhouse]
[Yelling]
Chris Burnett: NO!
[Sasha looks at the hill where Burnett is. Knowing that he gave away his position, Burnett starts to run]
Sasha: [Whistles to the nearby Serb troops and shouts in Serbian and begins shooting] There's another one!
Bazda: [In Serbian] Fire on the hills!
[Serb troops begin firing on Burnett as he escapes]

Chris Burnett: [Burnett hands Reigart the evidence that contains the photos of the mass graves that Burnett and Stackhouse photographed] This is why they killed Stackhouse!

Babic: It's not safe here. We keep moving.
Chris Burnett: No, you go. They killed my pilot because we took pictures of the graves, and I know where they are. And I am gonna get them, so he didn't die for no reason.
[Walks up to Babic and pats him on the back]
Chris Burnett: Don't follow me, it's safer here.
[Burnett leaves the area, and Babic walks off]

Chris Burnett: [Over the radio] Archangel is down and I am on the run!

Chris Burnett: Everybody thinks they're gonna get a chance to punch some Nazi in the face in Normandy, but those days are over. They're long gone.

Chris Burnett: [Burnett learns that he and Stackhouse are being assigned to a reconnaissance mission over Bosnia] Son of a bitch!
[Stackhouse comes up to Burnett]
Chris Burnett: [Referring to Admiral Reigart] Did you see this? He put us on the holiday mission! God damn it!
Stackhouse: Yeah, well look on the bright side, at least we get to fly, right?
Chris Burnett: Yeah, during the one good meal of the year, it's almost as if he doesn't like us.
Stackhouse: [Jokingly] No, you. Not me. You.

Chris Burnett: [Burnett arrives at the designated evacuation point]
[Over the radio]
Chris Burnett: Alpha Whiskey, this is Zero-Six, come in.
Admiral Reigart: [Over the radio] Zero-Six, go ahead.
Chris Burnett: Zero-Six is at rally point three and is standing by.
Admiral Reigart: Zero-Six, latest intel says your current location undoable for pickup. Standby to copy rendezvous point.
Chris Burnett: Say again your last, I am at the rendezvous point.
Admiral Reigart: You need to hump it out to safe zone. I set IP Cadillac, Canada 1-5, Virginia 2-0, for evac.
Admiral Reigart: [Burnett looks at his map and realizes the newly designated extraction zone is miles away from his current position] No. Negative, negative! I do not understand. Why is this spot not doable for pickup? I am good to go! I say again, I am good to go, NOW!

Stackhouse: [Burnett and Stackhouse are having a discussion about a letter that Burnett wrote in which he expressed his interest of resigning from the Navy] O'Malley told me you dropped your letter, he's bullshitting me, right?
Chris Burnett: Nope, he's telling the truth.
Stackhouse: Oh, so you're gonna break up the band? That's good. Listen, Chris, I thought you were kidding about getting out. Are you telling me I gotta find another navigator? Is that the deal?
Chris Burnett: I can't do it anymore. I'm done, I'm sorry.

Chris Burnett: Where are we heading?
Babic: Hac.
Chris Burnett: Hac? That's good. Good.
[Next scene shows the truck the two men are aboard enter Hac, which is a war zone]

Chris Burnett: [after a helicopter tasked with rescuing Burnett turns away after the mission of rescuing Burnett is canceled] You've got to be shitting me!

Admiral Reigart: You should be glad you're not in the middle of a fight, Lieutenant. Because with your attitude, you wouldn't last very long.
Chris Burnett: Sir, with all due respect, I've given the Navy seven good years. I think I've served my country.

Chris Burnett: [to Reigart] Sir, I signed up to be a fighter pilot. I didn't want to be a cop. And I certainly didn't want to go walking a beat on a neighborhood nobody cares about.

Ejup: Lokar's coming back here again, killing everyone.
Babic: It's true. Lokar killed everyone. Children and women. Buried them up in the hills.
Chris Burnett: In the hills? Yeah! I saw them, I saw the graves!
[Burnett has a flashback of the mass graves he encountered earlier]
Chris Burnett: Yes! I saw them! I saw the bodies in the hills. Tell them, I'm an American! I'm on your side!

[Last lines]

Admiral Reigart: I think I can find it!

Stackhouse: We're not supposed to fly that sector, Chris. The brass will have a shit-fit.
Chris Burnett: Hey, we're on recon so let's recon something.
