Eugene 'Gene' Davis: [walking into the control room] WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE?

[crowd disappears]

Frank Corvin: You know what the worst day of my life was? The day Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon. I was probably the only person in America who wanted to commit suicide that day.

Col. William 'Hawk' Hawkins: Well, thanks a lot Frank. We haven't spoken in twelve years and that's basically been the big question on my mind, what could make you commit suicide.

[Frank and Hawk are asking a waitress who she would prefer to 'take home']

Col. William 'Hawk' Hawkins: Would you prefer this man, with his asymmetrical sagging ass-cheeks, his love-handles the size of Nebraska, and his oh-so-ugly in-grown toenail...?

Frank Corvin: [interrupting] Or this son of a bitch with the chicken-gizzard neck and the face that looks like thirty miles of Death Valley fire trail?

Frank Corvin: [after Hawk crashes the shuttle during a simulation] Hawk, this isn't a stripped-down showplane. You've got to do it their way.

Col. William 'Hawk' Hawkins: I don't need a damn computer to tell me how to land an aircraft.

Roger Hines: It's not an aircraft, Colonel. It's a flying brick, and you've GOT to use the computer's protocols.

Col. William 'Hawk' Hawkins: What if the on-board computer fails?

Ethan Glance: It never has.

Col. William 'Hawk' Hawkins: [to the simulator supervisor] Houston, Horizon

Mission Control Tech: Go ahead

Col. William 'Hawk' Hawkins: Request second landing please.

[pause]

Barbara Corvin: Would you like me to read the instructions to you again?

Frank Corvin: Let me tell you something, my dear. Those instructions were written by a fellow in Japan when they made this damn thing. They were probably translated by some gringo who was an expatriate American that couldn't get a job in this country. And then the Japanese guy probably translated him just to double check on him. You don't need these instructions. Not at all. Tear them up.
