The Guardian (2006/I)
Billy Hodge: [after hitting his teacher in the face] United States Coast Guard I'm here to help you.

Ben Randall: There will come a time when you might have to decide who lives and dies out there. It's a terrible responsibility but it's one you will have to make as a rescue swimmer. The bigger reality is, its also something you are going to have to live with as a human being. There will come a time when you will have to say no. The most important person to keep alive is yourself. You'll be facing crews from 5 to 20 all saying 'save me, save me.' They're looking for a miracle. How old are you Hodge?
Billy Hodge: 24.
Ben Randall: At 24 years old you have to become that miracle. You have to find a way to be that miracle.

Jake Fischer: You gotta make a move!
Billy Hodge: I can't. I get nervous.
Jake Fischer: You're tellin' me you can jump outta helicopters but you're afraid to go talk to a girl?
Billy Hodge: Uh... pretty much, yea.

Danny Doran: Can you die from chlorine poisoning?
Billy Hodge: I can't feel my legs. I'm serious.
Jake Fischer: I don't know about you guys, but I feel good.
Ken Weatherly: This Randall guy, he's operating on some whole other cylinder. What is it, two weeks, and he's failed half the class already?
Ken Weatherly: He's a legend. They say he's got something like 200 saves.
Danny Doran: I heard it was 300.
Jake Fischer: Who cares what his number is? If he's such a stud, what's he doing here?

[Hodge drunkenly repeats Captain Larson's speech, trying to hit on the female bartender]
Billy Hodge: We go to "A" School, which is the most difficult school in the military. The attrition rate's like... what is it, 50 percent?
Jake Fischer: 50 percent.
Billy Hodge: Over 50 percent. We're still here. Cause we're the best of the best. When storms shut down entire ports, you know who goes out? Uh, we do. When hurricanes ground the US Navy, these little guys over there, guess who goes out? That's right, we do!
Bartender: Look honey, you'd better keep it down in here.
Billy Hodge: Okay, honey.
[to Jake]
Billy Hodge: She called me 'honey'!
[to the bartender]
Billy Hodge: Okay, honey! But when God himself reaches down from heaven... What does he do, Jake?
Jake Fischer: [trying not to laugh] Rips houses off the foundations.
Billy Hodge: When God himself rips houses off the foundations, we go out! Because we are rescue swimmers, and that's what we do.
