G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)
Ripcord: All right, ladies! Mount up!

Heavy Duty: Standing in front of you are Delta-6 Accelerator suits.
Ripcord: What does it accelerate?
Heavy Duty: You. It'll make you run faster, jump higher and hit harder than any of your enemies. Let's suit up.

Heavy Duty: [about handling the accelerator suits] Careful. They're worth millions of dollars each.
Ripcord: [in a suit] Millions of dollars. Got it.
[falls out of the van]
Heavy Duty: [annoyed] Jesus.
Ripcord: My bad. My bad. Won't happen again!
[Ripcord gets run over by a car]

Duke: [after crashing into cars while running in the accelerator suits] Okay, that was crazy. I didn't expect that. What happened to you?
Ripcord: I went through the train. What happened to you?
Duke: I jumped over it.
[pause]
Ripcord: You can do that?
Duke: Yeah. I told you to read that manual.
Ripcord: There's a manual?

Ripcord: [during a flashback scene] Do you love my boy?
The Baroness: Always and forever.

Duke: [to Snake-Eyes - inquiring where he is from] What about you?
Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: He doesn't speak.
Ripcord: Why?
Breaker: He doesn't say.

Breaker: Thousands of miles across and ten stories thick, locating McCullen's base will be like finding a needle in a coalmine.
Ripcord: [corrects him] Haystack.
Breaker: Oh, right, haystack in a coalmine.

Ripcord: Look, I think you and me got off on the wrong foot. See, I'm attracted to you. And you, you're attracted to me. And him, the damn Zen master, he creeps me out. What I'm trying to say is...
Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: We're attracted to each other.
Ripcord: [surprised] Thank you!
Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: [cuts him off] That's what your saying. It's not what I'm saying.
Ripcord: It's not. So, what are you saying?
Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: Attraction is an emotion. Emotions are not based on science. And if you can't quantify or prove that something exists, well, then in my mind, it doesn't.
Ripcord: Okay. I'll get back to you on that one.

Ripcord: [Scarlett goes flying of the bike and Ripcord saves her] I got you, I got you.
Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: Nice catch, slick.
Ripcord: Don't start being all nice now.
[Scarlett laughs]
Ripcord: I gotta go!
[puts Scarlett down]

Ripcord: [exercising] Hey, man, Breaker told me Scarlett graduated college at 12 years old. She's like some freaky little deadly genius.
[Ripcord leans on bars]
Duke: Rip. I get it, Rip. You like her.
Ripcord: Sorry, my bad. To hell with it!
[Ripcord lets go]
Duke: Rip. Rip.

Breaker: Ripcord, can you hear me?
Ripcord: Loud and clear, buddy. Doing Mach 6 and loving it!

Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: Ripcord, get out of that plane!
Ripcord: Almost there!
Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: Eject, Ripcord, eject!
Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: [tells him in Celtic] Cuir amach!
Ripcord: Cuir amach!
[Ripcord ejects as the nanomites destroy the plane]

Ripcord: Hey. You all right?
Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: [pained] I'm fine. I didn't want anyone to see me like this.
Ripcord: Why?
Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: I don't know. All the the men we lost, General Hawk wounded, my neck just doesn't seem that important.
Ripcord: You almost lost your life out there. You have a reason to be concerned.
Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: First fight I lost since I was a kid. My father taught me to win.
Ripcord: Look, I don't see how you can teach anybody to win everything every time. I mean, look at you. You're still here, right? You get knocked down, you get back up. Maybe that's what he wanted you to learn. But then again, that would be an emotional response, one that can't be explained or quantified.

Dr. Hundtkinder: Captain Hauser, Mr. McCullen requires a signature.
Ripcord: It's not gonna explode, is it?
Dr. Hundtkinder: They're not weaponized yet, and the kill switches are inside. All the same, I'd avoid potholes if I were you.

General Hawk: Looks like your mission is complete here, Duke.
Duke: [regarding the Baroness] When you move then, she's gonna come after you. You know that, right? And with her Intel and toys, she'll find you.
General Hawk: What's your point?
Duke: You're going after her first and we want in.
Ripcord: General, it was our team that got wasted out there. We deserve payback.
General Hawk: You don't ask to be part of G.I. Joe. You get asked.

Ripcord: Did it work?
Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: Yes, yes, it worked.
Ripcord: [his parachute opens and he lands at the White House] Good. Because I think I'm about to get arrested, again.

Heavy Duty: I'll create a distraction from outside and keep them busy while you lot infiltrate the facility from above. We'll find Duke...
Ripcord: grab the warheads...
Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: kill all the bad guys.

Shana 'Scarlett' O'Hara: I thought you Special Ops guys were supposed to be tough.
Ripcord: We are tough, but we're also sensitive.

Wallace Weems: Why don't you crawl out of those diehard overalls so we can work this out, freak to freak?
Adam DeCobray: Why would I want to battle you, Patient X? When you represent the future of all humanity.
Nicky Lee: Ripcord is the future? We're doomed.
