Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (2008 Video Game)
Solid Snake: I'm no hero... Never was. I'm just an old killer... Hired to do some wet work.
Big Boss: [to Snake] If you had been in my place back then, maybe you wouldn't have made the same mistakes I did. Ever since the day I killed The Boss with my own hands, I... was already dead.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: [codec call] Hold it, Snake. Time to change the disc. I know. I know. It's a pain. But you need to swap disc 1 for disc 2. You see the disc labeled 2?
Solid Snake: Uhh... No.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: Huh? Oh, wait! We're on Playstation 3! It's a Blu-Ray Disc. Dual-layered, too. No need to swap.
Solid Snake: Damnit, Otacon! Get a grip!
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: Yeah, what an age we live in, huh, Snake? Wonder what they'll think of next.
Big Boss: Boss... you were right. It's not about changing the world. It's about doing our best to leave the world... the way it is. It's about respecting the will of others, and believing in your own.
Solid Snake: War has changed. It's no longer about nations, ideologies, or ethnicity. It's an endless series of proxy battles fought by mercenaries and machines. War - and its consumption of life - has become a well-oiled machine. War has changed. ID-tagged soldiers carry ID-tagged weapons, use ID-tagged gear. Nanomachines inside their bodies enhance and regulate their abilities. Genetic control. Information control. Emotion control. Battlefield control. Everything is monitored and kept under control. War has changed. The age of deterrence has become the age of control... All in the name of averting catastrophe from weapons of mass destruction. And he who controls the battlefield... controls history. War has changed. When the battlefield is under total control... War becomes routine.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: Hey Snake, something I've been meaning to ask you. That canyon... Isn't that where you demolished Raven's tank? How'd you do it, anyway?
Solid Snake: How? Well... Grenades.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: That's it? You didn't use an anti-tank missile or something?
Solid Snake: Didn't have one.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: Your technique is kind of... how do I put this... archaic when it comes to fighting tanks. Honestly, I don't think it'd work on today's main battle tanks.
Solid Snake: Well, that's how I did it. What do you want me to say?
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: You know, I asked an active-duty Army officer once: If an infantryman had to take on a tank one-on-one, how should he do it?
Solid Snake: And what was his answer?
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: "Don't." He swore there's no way in hell a single infantryman could take down a tank by himself.
Solid Snake: Interesting.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: I always suspected there was a little something crazy about you, Snake. But after hearing that story... Now I know it. You're nuts! Single-handedly taking out a tank? That's crazy! You're insane!
Solid Snake: Otacon, is this your idea of a compliment?
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: Yes! You're the toughest, craziest, most hardcore badass on the planet! You're... the shit!
Big Boss: [to Solid Snake] I never thought of you as a son, but I always respected you as a soldier... and as a man.
Otacon: Hey Snake, it's me.
Solid Snake: Who?
Otacon: [Otacon's face appears on the robot] Snake, it's me.
Solid Snake: Otacon?
Otacon: Sorry to keep you waiting. I'm here to help you from here on out.
Solid Snake: Where are you now?
Otacon: Out of harm's way.
Solid Snake: Is that remote control?
Otacon: Yup. And this mechanism is equipped with a Cell Processor.
[the robot starts dancing]
Solid Snake: [Snake looks out the window] Otacon, we're surrounded.
Otacon: Any ideas?
Solid Snake: Can you lend me a hand?
Otacon: Not at the moment... Snake, you'd better get moving.
[the robot gives Snake bullets]
Solid Snake: OK. I'll take what I can get.
[Snake gets up and leaves]
Solid Snake: You coming?
Otacon: Of course. I'll be behind you all the way.
Otacon: [after Otacon spots a cigarette in Snake's mouth] Uhh, Snake?
Solid Snake: What now?
Otacon: Didn't you quit?
Solid Snake: Nah, just found a light.
Otacon: Even in the middle of a battlefield...
Solid Snake: Go!
[holds up Snake]
Johnny Sasaki: Drop your weapon!
[Snake holds up his hands and turns around]
Solid Snake: You haven't even taken the safety off, rookie.
Johnny Sasaki: Careful, I'm no rookie! I'm a ten year vet.
[looks closer to check. Snake uses CQC to snatch his rifle and throw him to the floor]
Solid Snake: How the hell did you ever survive ten years?
Big Boss: Boss... you say there's only room for one Snake... no... the world is better off... without Snakes...
[Snake shares a final smoke with Big Boss as he nears his end]
Liquid Ocelot: [Pumps a nearly-dead, exhausted Snake with nanomachine suppresor] This is it, brother; Our final moment. The battle has ended, but we are not yet free! The war is over... but... You and I still have a score to settle.
Liquid Ocelot: [Snake pulls himself upright and gets into a combat stance; Liquid casts aside his sunglasses and gets into a combat stance as well; music intensifies] SHOW ME WHAT YOU'VE GOT, SNAKE!
[the two are badly wounded]
Ed: You and me... We were great partners.
Jonathan: No... Great friends.
Sunny: [frying eggs] Come quick! They're ready! They look... yummy! Sorta like the sun. It's rising again...
Raiden: [introduction scene] Snake, it's my turn to protect you...
Solid Snake: I'm no hero. Never was. I'm just an old killer... hired to do some wet work.
[the scene in Europe where Liquid Ocelot controls the power of the Guns of the Patriots, he points at a chopper like he's holding a gun]
Liquid Ocelot: Bang!
[the chopper's engine then shuts down and the chopper crashes into the river, Liquid Ocelot does the same with another chopper]
Liquid Ocelot: Bang!
[the other chopper's engine shuts down and crashes into the river]
Big Boss: It all began with a bunch of old fools. Now they've all passed away, their era of folly is over.
EVA: So long as there is light... there will always be a shadow
Meryl Silverburgh: [to Johnny, during firefight] And I want a real wedding! With flowers... and a cake! It was my dream ever since I was a girl.
Colonel Roy Campbell: War is to the 21st century what oil was to the 20th; the pillar that supports the global economy.
[on the Beauty and the Beast Unit]
Drebin: War transforms us, Snake. Into beasts.
Solid Snake: It's Naomi.
Otacon: ...And Vamp!
Solid Snake: The Beauty and the Beast...
Mei Ling: [quoting Shakespeare] The tongues of dying men force attention, like deep harmony. Where words are spent, they are seldom spent in vain.
Liquid Ocelot: This is the liberty we've won for ourselves: Outer Haven! And with this weapon I will destroy JD! Then, everything ends, and everything begins! But as for you, brother, you'll stay here to mark this island's watery grave!
Big Boss: [talking about Ocelot assuming Liquid Snake's personality] Cats do love to play as Snakes
Solid Snake: [codec call] Otacon, what's wrong? Why are you calling me over there?
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: Huh? What are you talking about? I didn't say anything!
Solid Snake: It was you!
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: I told you I didn't call you! This is no time for jokes! You're suppose to fighting Octopus, come on!
Solid Snake: I... Hey! Otacon...
Solid Snake: [codec call to Otacon, inside the trash]
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: Snake, where are you now?
Solid Snake: Trash can.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: A trash can?
Solid Snake: Looks like this is where they dump their household trash.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: Huh. How can you tell?
Solid Snake: Cause it's stinks in here... Bad. Leftovers for last dinner, probably.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: Ewww, leftovers...
Solid Snake: And there's some... bugs crawling around on my face.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: Ewww...
Solid Snake: It feels like roaches. There's a whole bunch of them scurrying around.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: [feels disgusted] Ugh! Make sure you get the smell of them off you before coming back here!
Solid Snake: Yep. I'll see what I can do.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: Ugh... seriously. Doesn't it make you sick?
Solid Snake: I'd crawl into a toilet if it kept me out of sight. Something crawling my leg...
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: Ughhh... I can't even imagine! Ewww! You know, you might want to get out of there as soon as the coast is clear!
Solid Snake: Yeah... not a best place for a nap.
Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich: No kidding...
Otacon: Enough is enough, Snake! How can you calling yourself a man, hurting a woman like that!
Liquid Ocelot: Do you see this, Zero? We are victorious! Behold, Guns of the Patriots!
Solid Snake: Am I going to die?
Big Boss: Everyone Dies. You can't stop it. You can't run from it. Let me tell you something... Don't... Don't waste the life you have left fighting.
Big Boss: [Speaking over The Boss's grave] Ever since the day I killed The Boss... With my own hands... I... Was already dead. Boss... You were right. It's not about changing the world. It's about doing our best to leave the world... The way it is. It's about respecting the will of others... And believing in your own. Isn't that... What you fought for? At last... I understand the meaning behind what you did. At last... I understand the truth behind your courage.
Solid Snake: [after crawling into a trash dumpster, then using the codec to contact Otacon] I'd crawl into a toilet if it kept me out of sight.
