Starship Troopers (1997) Poster

Neil Patrick Harris: Carl Jenkins



  • Carl : We thought there might be a Brain Bug on 'P'.

    Carmen : You knew and still you sent them?

    Carl : We couldn't afford to launch an operation if there wasn't one.

    [both Carmen and Johnny look at Carl with contempt] 

    Carl : You disapprove? Well, too bad! We're in this war for the species, boys and girls. It's simple numbers. They have more. And every day I have to make decisions that send hundreds of people like you to their deaths.

    Johnny Rico : Didn't they tell you, Colonel? That's what the Mobile Infantry is good for.

  • [Inside an Arachnid study laboratory] 

    Newsreel announcer : Every day, Federal scientists are looking for new ways to kill bugs.

    Carl : Your basic Arachnid warrior isn't too smart, but you can blow off a limb,

    [shoots an Arachnid warrior's limb off] 

    Carl : and it's still 86 percent combat effective. Here's a tip: Aim for the nerve stem, and put it down for good.


  • [Carl psychically probes the captured alien] 

    Carl : It's afraid. It's afraid.

    [everyone cheers] 

  • Carl : So you haven't done it yet, have you? Don't lie!

    Johnny Rico : I'm not in any hurry.

    Carl : [Indicating Dizzy Flores]  Others are waiting.

    Johnny Rico : [Looking at Dizzy]  Did you read her mind?

    Carl : Don't have to. It's pretty clear what she wants.

    Johnny Rico : Yeah, but I want Carmen.

    Carl : Oh, you got it bad!
