Betty: I dated a criminal once.
Teri Halloran: Only once?
Betty: He owned a used car lot. They busted him for turning back the odometers.
Teri Halloran: How could you trust someone like that?
Betty: I figured I did the same thing when I told him I was 21.
Ryan Weaver: You are a convicted inmate on death row. What five albums would you pick?
[Teri takes the drink orders]
Ryan Weaver: I'll have the complimentary champagne.
Marshal Marty Douglas: Like hell you will!
Ryan Weaver: Okay, I'll have a Bloody Mary.
Marshal Marty Douglas: Weaver!
Ryan Weaver: Hold the vodka, the celery and the Tabasco.
Teri Halloran: If you wanted a tomato juice, why didn't you just say so?
Rachel Taper: We need you to program the autopilot so it can vector you around the storm front ahead. You've got a level 6 storm.
Teri Halloran: Is that a 6 on a scale from 1 to 10?
Rachel Taper: No, Teri... on a scale of 1 to 6.
Sinclair: Wait a minute, wait a minute. You've got a 747 beat to hell by level 6 turbulence, your flight crew is dead, you've got an armed convicted serial killer loose on board, eight passengers have disappeared, and your stewardess is locked in the goddamned cockpit. Have I left anything out?
Controller: You forgot about the truck.
[it's stuck to the landing gear]
Ryan Weaver: You're not going to kill me. You can't kill me, 'cause you don't believe in capital punishment.
Teri Halloran: I changed my mind!
Sinclair: How's a fucking stewardess going to land the plane?
Rachel Taper: She's a flight attendant!
Maggie: What would you like to drink?
Maggie: [thinks for a second and hands the underage passenger a carton of milk. He grunts] Merry Christmas!
Ryan Weaver: I know it's meaningless to mention. But a detective planted the evidence that convicted me.
Marshal Marty Douglas: You're innocent.
Ryan Weaver: Yes, I am.
Marshal Marty Douglas: Duly noted.
[opens a book titled "The Inner Guide Meditation"]
Ryan Weaver: Are you married?
Marshal Marty Douglas: Yeah, but I don't wear rings. I don't like jewelry.
Ryan Weaver: You don't have to defend yourself to me. Was that a tough sell to your wife? The "I don't like wearing jewelry" bit?
Marshal Marty Douglas: Weaver, I know you'd like to entertain yourself by engaging me in a challenging conversation. But, I like to read on a plane.
Ryan Weaver: Okay. Duly noted.
Rachel Taper: Ok, she's cleared the buildings. There's just one small problem...
Lt. Aldo Hines: I think it's a ford...
[stuck to the landing gear]
1st Officer Ted Kary: So I heard these prisoners are being transported?
Captain Matt Powell: Yeah. One of them is a burglar and the other is the Lonely Hearts Strangler.
Lt. Aldo Hines: Here's who you're dealing with: male Caucasian, 35, well educated, raised by his aunt who mysteriously disappeared when he was 16, has raped and strangled five women, escaped when being transported to San Quentin.
Ryan Weaver: [after Maggie is strangled to death by Ryan] You rubbed me the wrong way.
Ryan Weaver: [Ryan chasing Teri on the plane] Dashing through the snow...
Ryan Weaver: Alright, I need a volunteer for a dangerous mission.
[pulls out three circuit boards]
Ryan Weaver: You, You, You,OK,You
[pulls the main circuit board and gets electrocuted]
Ryan Weaver: OW! WHOA, WHOA, Ok, you can stay.
