Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War (2004 Video Game)
Allen C. Hamilton: You're alive, Bartlett?
Jack Bartlett: You know, you've always been too damn serious, Hamilton.
Allen C. Hamilton: I'm going to take those Belkan nukes and terrify both sides into ending this foolish war! DON'T GET IN MY WAY!
Jack Bartlett: The problem with you is that you can't tell the difference between friend and foe. Terror is NOT your friend!
Albert Genette: That pilot in the number seven was amazing! Did you see her fight back?
Jack Bartlett: I couldn't bear to watch. Nagase! You keep flying like that and you're gonna die real soon.
Kei Nagase: I won't die sir.
Jack Bartlett: Really? You don't look like you could hurt a fly.
Alvin H. Davenport: Man, this is ridiculous! I can't believe they chose our next mission with a damn coin again!
Additional Voices: This is Thunderhead, Captain Davenport, how many times do I have to tell you to cut the chatter?
Alvin H. Davenport: This is Razgriz 3, roger that.
Additional Voices: ...What did you just say?
Alvin H. Davenport: Aw man, my rock & roll records, they're in my room! It took me forever to collect all those!
Albert Genette: I heard the one who broke the Captain's heart 15 years ago was a Recon Major in the Yuke Amy.
Alvin H. Davenport: Yeah, I did my history homework. We were allies back then. Man, the Base Commander sure wasn't subtle about makin' accusations.
Alvin H. Davenport: "Was there anything suspicious about the Captain's behavior?", he says. Hell, I'm more suspicious about the screw in his damn head!
Alvin H. Davenport: [Alarms begin sounding] Oh, you're kiddin' me. An air raid? Give me a break, man!
Allen C. Hamilton: [Spotting Genette secretly filming the Base Commander] Don't.
Allen C. Hamilton: He's in a bad mood today. If he catches you, he'll have your head.
Albert Genette: What happened?
Allen C. Hamilton: [Hamilton shrugs as he walks away]
Orson Perrault: Thank you for coming, Second Lieutennant. I was just thinking about calling you over.
Peter N. Beagle: Me?
Orson Perrault: Special Forces Second Lieutennant Peter N. Beagle. Or I guess you prefer "Pops". 15 years ago, you and Bartlett were shot down over enemy terrain. Bartlett's squadron HQ was destroyed, and all its data was fried by Belka's Magnetic Pulse weaponry. When you made it back to the allied front lines, it was Bartlett's word that convinced them that you were his squadron leader.
[Perrault draws his sidearm]
Orson Perrault: Is that really true? Bartlett turned out to be a spy. So who are you, really? Can't prove anything about your military record, can you?
Peter N. Beagle: [the lights go out and Pops, Genette, and Grimm bolt for the door] This way!
Alvin H. Davenport: Hey! Kid!
Hans Grimm: You really should start calling him "Captain".
Alvin H. Davenport: Forget it! If he's a Captain, I want him to start trash-talkin' like a Captain. Man, I'm missing that voice real bad right now.
Hans Grimm: He's gotten us back alive from battle for the second time. So far as I'm concerned, he's our Captain now.
Kei Nagase: That's right, and I'm never going to lose my lead plane again, no matter what.
Jack Bartlett: Captain Snow of the Naval Air Forces? Sorry I haven't introduced myself, I'm kinda shy, you know.
Marcus Snow: So I hear, Captain. Greetings.
Vincent Harling: This is President Harling of the Osean Federation, attention all Osean and Yuktobanian officers and soldiers currently on the battlefield. Let us put down our guns, and come out of the trenches. The Osean capital of Oured has been freed of the people who tried to take advantage of my absence to usurp control of the country. Once robbed of my freedom, and of my ability to do the right thing, I now stand again under the light of the golden sun, and I do so with the honorable Yuktobanian Prime Minister Nikanor by my side. We have resolved our terrible and unfortunate misunderstandings, and the war is now over.
Seryozha Viktrovich Nikanor: This is Prime Minister Nikanor, head of government for the Union of Yuktobanian Republics. Attention all officers and soldiers of Osea and Yuktobania currently on the battlefield, please watch as President Harling and I stand shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand. President Harling's words are true. The war is over, but there is still one more battle that needs to be fought.
Vincent Harling: We believe that those who have tried to stir hatred between us are now preparing a weapon that could wipe out half of all metropolitan areas in either one of our countries. Our comrades are in flight as I speak, determined to stop this plan dead in its tracks. Which country is under the threat of mass destruction? That we do not know.
Seryozha Viktrovich Nikanor: However, that is no longer important. No matter which country is hit, it would be a severe blow to all of us.
Vincent Harling: So now I ask you, members of the military, if you see it in your hearts, please utilize the resources available to you and help out our brave pilots. Right now they are flying east to meet the enemy.
Seryozha Viktrovich Nikanor: To those who still dare to hide behind the power of their hateful weapons, bring yourself before the light of peace and harmony.
Nicolas A. Andersen: This ship may be unharmed, but it pains me to see fewer and fewer pilots coming back every time we launch them out on combat sorties. Now the only pilot left is Captain Snow, the squad leader. Nobody wants an aircraft carrier without aircraft, so we're just sitting idle here.
Peter N. Beagle: At the end of the last war, I was assigned the mission of dropping a nuclear weapon on a city in my own country.
Nicolas A. Andersen: Hmm.
Peter N. Beagle: When I refused and went AWOL, it was Captain Bartlett who took me in. His nickname was also "Kid" back then. He was a strange man... 15 years since the war and he never got promoted once. In my country, there was a group called the "Gray Men". They're likely to still be around today. To them, I'm a traitor, and for the last 15 years, Bartlett's protected me from them.
Peter N. Beagle: Speaking of which, you don't think the "Gray Men" are involved with the dissapearance of President Harling, do you?
Nicolas A. Andersen: I've got an intelligence-gathering vessel in my fleet, the Andromeda. It's capable of intercepting all forms of communications. Recently, it intercepted a secret message transmitted in Belkan. That, Colonel, is why I called all of you here.
Peter N. Beagle: All this intense flying's tough on an old body. From here on out... It's their time to shine.
Nicolas A. Andersen: [nods in agreement] Mmm.
Peter N. Beagle: But what'll we do about planes?
Nicolas A. Andersen: We've captured a ship trying to smuggle aircraft from a South Belkan company into Yuktobania. Plenty of planes to choose from.
Hans Grimm: This is Airman First Class Grimm, callsign Archer. Control tower and all planes, I will be joining the Wardog Squadron.
Kei Nagase: Grimm, respond, are you in trouble?
Hans Grimm: Standby one, I've gotta get away from this guy!
Alvin H. Davenport: [singing along with an anti-war demonstration at a war rally] Thoughts endless in flight, day turns to night...
Hans Grimm: That's not exactly rock & roll, you know.
Alvin H. Davenport: Who cares? They want to get along with the enemy too, right? Man, this song's got soul!
Alvin H. Davenport: Man, kid's skills are well beyond my reach already!
Alvin H. Davenport: [after being ordered to attack an enemy battleship] Kid, you go get that thing, I'm retiring! Sheesh!
Alvin H. Davenport: Kid, are my eyes screwing up on me?
Hans Grimm: I think your vision's just fine, Captain Chopper.
