Roughnecks: The Starship Troopers Chronicles (1999–2000)
Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: There's nothing like a bug hunt to get your juices flowing!
Cpl. Jeff Gossard: So, what do you do to relax, Flores? Bungee jump without the cord?
Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: Hey! No guts, no glory.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: [mutters to Jenkins] No brains.
Pvt. Carl Jenkins: No kidding.
Pvt. Carl Jenkins: [Observing the battlefield on Pluto] They never mentioned this in the commercials.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: I think we should sue.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: [after arriving back to base from destroying a bug-built mountain on Buenos Aires] Diz, I think we should talk.
Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: About what? Oh, about you being in love with me. Well, you can't be.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: What's that supposed to mean?
Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: I'm a jinx, plain and simple. Bad stuff always happen to the people I'm in love with.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: That's ridiculous!
Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: Do you want a list? Let's start off with my family, gone. Thought I had feelings for Carl? Whoops, his brain got fried! Zander? Turned into a bug!
Pvt. Johnny Rico: There's one flaw in your theory, Diz.
Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: What's that?
Pvt. Johnny Rico: Me. You're in love with me, and nothing bad has happened.
Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: Well, I'm not in love with you anymore! That's why you're safe.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: Diz, I'm not going to let you do this. I won't just walk away!
Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: Sergeant! You outrank me, remember? I believe that SICON command would deem that this sort of behavior is wholly inappropriate.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: Fine, Private. I'm sorry if I went out of line. This will never happen again.
Sgt. Francis Brutto: [after finding out that Lieutenant Razak makes the decision to go underground in order to save Rico on their first mission in Pluto] Lieutenant is insane!
Cpl. Richard 'Doc' LaCroix: Hey, we're fighting giant bugs on freaking Pluto, man! We're all insane!
Lt. Jean Razak: [after stopping Private Flores from nearly shooting Rico and Brutto] Flores! You're still making the same mistakes you made as a student! Think first, act second!
Pvt. Johnny Rico: [after getting the order to bring a marauder suit up a mountain and hearing the consequences of the damage to the suit] What comes from nothing is nothing
Sgt. Francis Brutto: What was that?
Pvt. Johnny Rico: Nothing!
Cpl. Richard 'Doc' LaCroix: Radical reconstructive surgery is the only option.
Cpl. Jeff Gossard: Leg's that bad?
Cpl. Richard 'Doc' LaCroix: Leg's fine. I was talking about your face.
Pvt. Robert Higgins: Remember the Roughnecks! The best Earth had to offer!
Pvt. Johnny Rico: [after being given the order to complete a mission on Klendathu] What happened to "The Roughnecks never leave a man behind? "
Lt. Jean Razak: That's the advantage of being the boss. You don't have to follow your own orders.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: [after saving Carmen after she crashlands on Klendathu] Expecting Prince Charming?
Lt. Carmen Ibanez: What? No white horse?
Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: [while standing next to Brutto] Jeez, Sarge will it kill you to shower once in a while? You smell like the south end of a north-bound plasma bug!
Sgt. Francis Brutto: Hey babe, REAL men smell, and REAL women like it.
T'Phai: That is true. My mate chose me for my scent.
Sgt. Francis Brutto: Colonel, you're my type of guy.
Pvt. Robert Higgins: Lieutenant, um, about T'Phai.
Lt. Jean Razak: Change the subject, Higgins.
Pvt. Robert Higgins: Sir, no, sir. See, any other day, you'd be on my case for lagging behind or the Sarge for being the sarge. Now everything is the Colonel's fault?
Lt. Jean Razak: It's not that simple.
Pvt. Robert Higgins: An ape is an ape, L. T. You said it *IS* that simple.
Pvt. Robert Higgins: [after viewing a previous clip of Johnny Rico blaming T'Phai for Dizzy Flores's capture on Tesca Nemarosa] I am fired.
Pvt. Robert Higgins: [after viewing a clip of Dizzy asking Johnny Rico to go back to being a jerk] I am *SO* fired.
Sgt. Francis Brutto: [after escaping from a Kamikaze Rippler bug on Hydora] Looks like something's got a crush on you.
Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: Not mutual!
Pvt. Johnny Rico: [when being on a retrieval ship after saving Echo Squad on Hydora] Diz, when we get back to the Valley Forge, you should take it easy. I'll pick up your meals and stuff.
Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: Rico, when we get back to the Valley Forge, do me one big favor. Go back to being a jerk. I like you better that way.
[Ibanez is shooting at a hole in the cave to give out signal for any of the Roughnecks to find them. Rico wakes up from the gunfire]
Pvt. Johnny Rico: Hey, keep it down here, I'm trying to get some shut-eye.
Lt. Carmen Ibanez: Rico!
Pvt. Johnny Rico: What are you doing?
Lt. Carmen Ibanez: I'm trying to use your laser to send up a flare. They have to be looking for us right now.
Pvt. Johnny Rico: Hold off. You're almost out of juice, and the laser will show up better once it's dark.
Lt. Carmen Ibanez: I refuse to die in such a stupid way!
Pvt. Johnny Rico: There's no such thing as a smart way.
Sgt. Francis Brutto: [while being partnered up with T'Phai on an ice planet] Three sunsets in two hours and I get stuck watching them with a seven-foot alien.
T'Phai: Then for you, too, the sunset is considered romantic.
Sgt. Francis Brutto: Don't get any ideas.
[Gossard has to cut one of the wires to restore power to the stasis tubes aboard the Valley Forge]
Cpl. Jeff Gossard: What's your favorite color? Red or Blue?
Cpl. Richard 'Doc' LaCroix: I'm a doctor, not an electrician. Red!
[Gossard cuts the blue wire]
Cpl. Richard 'Doc' LaCroix: You cut the blue wire!
Cpl. Jeff Gossard: [power to the stasis tubes goes back to normal] You're a doctor, not an electrician.
[the Roughnecks start to head back to the retrieval ship after saving Rico]
Lt. Jean Razak: Private, you disobeyed a direct order and almost got yourself killed! That is not acceptable in my squad, do you get me?
Pvt. Johnny Rico: Sir, I get you, sir.
Lt. Jean Razak: [whispers softly referring to Rico attempting to kill a Tanker bug to save Jenkins, Flores, Higgins, and Razak] Pretty gutsy, son.
[while investigating Little Butte, the Roughnecks kept getting a "Good afternoon, lovely weather, wouldn't you say? " greetings]
T'Phai: That is one thing I do not understand about you humans, your pre-occupation with the weather.
[after killing the bugs posing as humans when retrieving a poison serum for Lieutenant Razak]
Pvt. Johnny Rico: How did you know they were fake?
Pvt. Isabelle 'Dizzy' Flores: Woman's intuition.
Cpl. Richard 'Doc' LaCroix: This hero stuff's exhausting.
Cpl. Jeff Gossard: Oh, my back can't take much more of this.
T'Phai: Yes. It must be quite a strain - sitting down for hours while others patrol on foot.
Pvt. Carl Jenkins: T'Phai's right, Gossard. How do you do it?
Cpl. Jeff Gossard: [after flying through a cavern] I can't decide if you're the best pilot I've ever seen, or just completely out of your mind.
Lt. Carmen Ibanez: A little of both.
