Air Force One (1997)
Liberty 24 Pilot: Blue Star... Air Force One is down!
Control Room [Blue Star]: Liberty 24 have you got the president?
Control Room [Blue Star]: Liberty DO YOU HAVE THE PRESIDENT!
Liberty 24 Pilot: Standby...
Liberty 24 crew member: [President Marshal is grabbed off the line and taken on board]
[a watching crew member on his ear set]
Liberty 24 crew member: ... Liberty 24 is changing call sign, Liberty 24 is now Air Force One!
President James Marshall: Peace isn't merely the absence of conflict, but the presence of justice.
Ivan Korshunov: I know what you're thinking, First Lady. You want me dead. Well, it might come to that. In the war, people die.
Grace: This isn't war! You just murdered an unarmed woman.
Ivan Korshunov: You, who murdered a 100,000 Iraqis to save a nickel on a gallon of gas. Are going to lecture me about the rules of war? Don't!
Ivan Korshunov: Your national security advisor has just been executed. He's a very good negotiator. He bought you another half hour.
President James Marshall: If this works, you get to be Postmaster General.
Agent Gibbs: Give me the strap!
President James Marshall: I trusted you with my life.
Agent Gibbs: So will the next President. Now, give it to me.
President James Marshall: Kathryn, if you give a mouse a cookie...
Vice President Kathryn Bennett: It's gonna want a glass of milk.
F-15 Fighter Pilot 'Halo 2': Sir, pull up! You've got one on your tail.
President James Marshall: Get him off my tail!
F-15 Fighter Pilot 'Halo 2': Missile away. Air Force One. Break left and climb!
Major Caldwell: Sir, we've lost countermeasures.
F-15 Fighter Pilot 'Halo 2': This is Halo-2. They've lost countermeasures. I'm going in.
[takes the missile for Air Force One]
Alice Marshall: I'm 12 years old, dad. In caveman days I'd be having children of my own.
President James Marshall: That's what we call progress, young lady.
Colonel Carlton: Okay guys give me some room. I've just been ordered to fire on Air Force One.
White House General: [after hearing the president] My God! Is he saying what I think he's saying?
Vice President Kathryn Bennett: If we're going to act, we have to act now.
Defense Secretary Walter Dean: It's too risky.
Vice President Kathryn Bennett: The president is up there with a gun to his head.
General Northwood: He asking us to do that to Air Force One?
Vice President Kathryn Bennett: He's not asking. Your Commander-in-Chief has issued a direct order. Do it!
Russian President Petrov: Today we are honoring this brave man. Ladies and gentlemen, my friend, the President of the United States of America.
President James Marshall: IN RUSSIAN. The dead remember our indifference. The dead remember our silence.
President James Marshall: I came here tonight to be congratulated, but today when I visited the Red Cross camps, overwhelmed by the flood of refugees fleeing from the horror of Kazakhstan, I realized I don't deserve to be congratulated. None of us do.
National Security Advisor Jack Doherty: What's he doing?
Chief of Staff Lloyd Shepherd: That's not the speech.
President James Marshall: Let's speak the truth. And the truth is, we acted too late. Only when our own national security was threatened did we act. Radek's regime murdered over 200,000 men, women, and children, and we watched it on TV. We let it happen. People were being slaughtered for over a year and we issued economic sanctions and hid behind the rhetoric of diplomacy. How dare we? The dead remember. Real peace is not just the absence of conflict, it's the presence of justice. And tonight I come to you with a pledge to change America's policy. Never again will I allow our political self-interest to deter us from doing what we know to be morally right. Atrocity and terror are not political weapons and to those who would use them: your day is over. We will never negotiate. We will no longer tolerate, and we will no longer be afraid. It's your turn to be afraid.
Melanie Mitchel: Mr. President, the Russian news crew is with us. I told them you'd give them a sound bite about life in the White House.
President James Marshall: There *is* no life in the White House!
[Phillips is talking Marshall through dumping fuel with the avionics panel]
Phillips, AFO Chief Mechanic: Hold on, just let me double-check, sir...
President James Marshall: Oh, for Christ's sakes, man, hurry up!
Phillips, AFO Chief Mechanic: Sir, if you get the wrong wire, you'll cut the engine feeds, and the plane will crash.
President James Marshall: Then we don't want to get the wrong wire, do we?
President James Marshall: Where are your chutes, guys?
Agent Gibbs: We stay with the president.
President James Marshall: Thank you.
Alice Marshall: You are a monster, and my father is a great man. You're nothing like my father!
Liberty 24 Pilot: Mr. President, welcome aboard, sir!
President James Marshall: Did you hear my speech?
President James Marshall: Yeah?
Grace: You're gonna get yourself re-elected.
President James Marshall: That's what I keep telling them.
Ivan Korshunov: When you talk to the President, you might remind him that I am holding his wife, his daughter, his chief of staff, his national security advisor, his classified papers - and his baseball glove!
[Crossing three wires blindly]
President James Marshall: I'm counting on you, red, white and blue.
President James Marshall: Your not here for this, you want something. What is it?
Ivan Korshunov: I want Radek.
President James Marshall: How can I do that, I can't do that!
Ivan Korshunov: Then you die the three of you.
President James Marshall: I'll do anything to save my family DON'T ASK ME FOR SOMETHING I CAN'T GIVE!
Ivan Korshunov: The most powerful man on the earth, and there certain things you cannot do. This is very curious, stop with your fuckin' LIES!
President James Marshall: Do you know who I am? I'm the President of the United States!
Boris Bazylev: Don't think that means I don't shoot you!
Ivan Korshunov: You've been very busy downstairs, haven't you? Killing my men?
Ivan Korshunov: [Slaps President Marshall's face after been tied with tape]
Ivan Korshunov: [Punches President Marshall's stomach]
Ivan Korshunov: [Lies down President Marshall against a desk and takes his gun and points it at his head]
President James Marshall: You don't want to do that. I'm what you came for, don't forget that.
Ivan Korshunov: Then i'll kill them. Or just one, you pick. That's what you do in the White House? you play God.
President James Marshall: These MiGs... how far away are they?
["Radar Lock" screen beeps]
President James Marshall: Never mind
General Northwood: Nobody does this to the United States. The President will get his baseball glove back and play catch with this guy's balls!
Grace: She couldn't stay your little girl forever Jim.
President James Marshall: I know. But I was hoping she could wait until she was 14 or 15... or 50.
National Security Advisor Jack Doherty: [to Ivan] The Vice President in this case is like the Queen of England. You can't even buy airline tickets without talking to someone like me. Therfore, let me speak to The White House because I can assure you, I'm the one person who can make this all work out.
Ivan Korshunov: I would turn my back on God Himself for Mother Russia
Alice Marshall: [watching a football game] Pass interference. That's cheating!
President James Marshall: Only if they get caught.
President James Marshall: [after seeing an enemy plane being blown up] HAHAHA. The good guys are here.
[Ivan has just killed Melanie Mitchell]
Ivan Korshunov: I know what you're thinking First Lady,you want me dead. Well we may come to that. You see people do die in wars.
Grace: This isn't war! YOU JUST MURDERED AN UNARMED WOMAN!
[Ivan has just killed Jack Doherty]
Alice Marshall: Why did you kill him?
Ivan Korshunov: Because I believe.
Vice President Kathryn Bennett: How the hell did they get Air Force One?
Major Caldwell: [the Liberty 24 pararescue team only has time for one more retrieval] Mr. President, it's time to get you off this plane!
Ivan Korshunov: The President is safe - but then you must know that. He ran from here like a whipped dog! I'm sure you can't wait for him to get back to making the decisions so you can stop... sweating... through that silk blouse of yours!
Ivan Korshunov: I understand that Air Force One can refuel in mid-air. Well we need fuel, and we need it now.
Vice President Kathryn Bennett: I'm sure we can come to some kind of arrangement. If you land the plane we'll trade fuel for hostages.
Ivan Korshunov: This is bullshit! It's simple physics. Without fuel the plan crashes,
Ivan Korshunov: everybody dies!
Vice President Kathryn Bennett: We're trying to do everything we can.
Ivan Korshunov: Tell me what I want to hear or I will execute a member of the senior staff and continue killing one hostage every minute until the plane crashes, or refueling plane arrive. Well what do you say?
Vice President Kathryn Bennett: Fuel's on its way.
Ivan Korshunov: Thank you.
Major Perkins: [after landing in Kazakstan] Quick head count! One, two, three, four, five. Move out!
Vice President Kathryn Bennett: What are your intentions?
Ivan Korshunov: What arrogance... to think you could ever understand my intentions!
Ivan Korshunov: You can end this all with one phone call Mr. President!
Air Force One Pilot: [as Ivan and Andrei are trying to get into the cockpit and stop the plane from landing] . No matter what happens, we land this aircraft is that understood?
