Christopher Walken: Cutter
General Mandible : [Z has broken through to the surface where Mandible and his soldiers wait for them to be drowned] Let go! Don't you understand? It's for the good of the colony!
Z : What are you saying? We are the colony!
[Mandible is about to strike Z when Cutter knocks his aside]
General Mandible : Cutter, what are you doing?
Colonel Cutter : Something I should have done a long time ago.
[extends his hand to the worker ants]
Colonel Cutter : *This* is for the good of the colony, General.
General Mandible : You useless, ungrateful maggot! *I* am the colony!
General Mandible : Seal up the doors. Cutter, did you hear me?
Colonel Cutter : Sir, I've been thinking. Do we need to go through with this? Look at what these workers have done. They've got the right stuff. Isn't there any other way?
General Mandible : Cutter, you're a fine officer. You have discipline, courage, ability... but you seem to have a weakness for the lower orders that I find disturbing. Now, are you with me?
Colonel Cutter : Time stands still for no ant.
