Chappy Sinclair: All of them.
Doug Masters: They look about 15, 16 years old.
Chappy Sinclair: That's right. All of them.
Doug Masters: So I don't know why you're so upset, Chappy. What makes them different than me?
Chappy Sinclair: Because they're dead, all of them! I had laid awake at night thinking about how fast and how brutal they died. Parts of them burning on the land, parts of them landing in the sea, some part of them burning just into nothing in the middle of the air and all of them thought that they were ready for it. When it was all over, I promised myself I'd never be part of killing kids again. That's why it took me so long to come around to helping you. Now it looks like I have us both trapped into something...
Doug Masters: [finishing Chappy's sentence] That could kill us? I know that Chappy, and those kids, I don't know what you think anymore but they knew it too. Maybe I'm not all that ready for it but who in the hell is ever ready for it? You didn't get me into this I went to you, remember? I know what we're risking here and I'm proud to be able to fly with you. Maybe I'm not all that ready but I'm damn proud.

[pulls out a small case and Doug opens it to find a pair of wings]
Chappy Sinclair: It's my first pair I wanna loan them to you.
Doug Masters: I'll bring them back, I promise.
Chappy Sinclair: You better, now get to bed
Doug Masters: Yes sir, colonel sir!
Chappy Sinclair: [into the tape recorder] It sure is strange making you this tape. I just got done talking to you. Look at that smile on your face, the look you had the first time I told you I'd help you with your father. I never told you this before. I always have a hard time talking about my feelings. But I want you to know now that you've got more courage than anyone I've ever met and you're gonna need every ounce of it to get through this thing. Now listen I'm proud to have been by your side, and whatever happens just remember we tried and no one can take that away from us!
