First Blood Quotes

Richard Crenna as Trautman

  • (Richard Crenna) "I don't think you understand. I didn't come to rescue Rambo from you. I came here to rescue you from him."
  • (Brian Dennehy) "Well, we all appreciate your concern Colonel, I will try to be extra careful."
  • (Richard Crenna) "I'm just amazed he allowed any of your posse to live."

  • (Brian Dennehy) "That's just great. Colonel, you came out here to find out why one of your machines blew a gasket."
  • (Richard Crenna) "You don't seem to want to accept the fact you're dealing with an expert in guerrilla warfare, with a man who's the best, with guns, with knives, with his bare hands. A man who's been trained to ignore pain, ignore weather, to live off the land, to eat things that would make a billy goat puke. In Vietnam his job was to dispose of enemy personnel. To kill. Period. Win by attrition. Well Rambo was the best."

Look at them. If you won't end this now, they will kill you. Is that what you want? It's over Johnny. It's over."
  • (Sylvester Stallone) "Nothing is over. Nothing. You just don't turn it off. It wasn't my war. You asked me, I didn't ask you. And I did what I had to do to win. But somebody wouldn't let us win. And I come back to the world and I see all those maggots at the airport, protesting me, spitting. Calling me baby killer and all kinds of vile crap. Who are they to protest me, huh? Who are they? Unless they've been me and been there and know what the hell they're yelling about."
  • (Richard Crenna) "It was a bad time for everyone, Rambo. It's all in the past now."
  • (Sylvester Stallone) "For you. For me civilian life is nothing. In the field we had a code of honor, you watch my back, I watch yours. Back here there's nothing."
  • (Richard Crenna) "You're the last of an elite group, don't end it like this."
  • (Sylvester Stallone) "Back there I could fly a gunship, I could drive a tank, I was in charge of million dollar equipment, back here I can't even hold a job parking cars."

  • (Sylvester Stallone) "I'm the last one Sir."
  • (Richard Crenna) "I came to get my boy."
  • (State Police Capt. Dave Kern) "Your BOY ?"

  • (Brian Dennehy) "Goddammit, what the hell do you think this is? Some kind of a circus?"

  • (Brian Dennehy) "It doesn't make one god**** bit of difference, Dave, and you know it. If one of my deputies -- gets out of line with a prisoner then the prisoner comes to me with it. And if I find out it's like he says I kick the deputy's ass. Me. The Law. People start f***ing around with the law then all hell breaks loose. Whatever possessed God in heaven to make a man like Rambo?"
  • (Richard Crenna) "God didn't make Rambo, I made him."
  • (State Police Capt. Dave Kern) "Why didn't you leave the kid alone in the first place?"
  • (Brian Dennehy) "Dammit, Dave, you think this kid just waltzed into town, announced he was a Medal Of Honor winner, and then I just leaned on him for the hell of it? I tried to do him a favor, I treated him like he was one of my neighbor's kids. I did my job, Dave, I booked him for vagrancy and resisting arrest."
  • (State Police Capt. Dave Kern) "You seem pretty motivated on this one."
  • (Brian Dennehy) "Why don't you go out there and take a look at what's left of my men? You'll see how motivated I am, Dave, and if that doesn't do it for you why don't you go have a talk with Art Gault's widow?"
  • (State Police Capt. Dave Kern) "All right, Will, I read you. Listen, I got twenty-five men I can bring up from Monroe."
  • (Brian Dennehy) "All right Dave, I can use them. We've got a lot of ground to cover."
  • (Brian Dennehy) "They found Rambo's body. As a matter of fact, it stole an army truck. Blew up a gas station the other side of town."
  • (Richard Crenna) "The kid is resiliant. Now why don't you forget what you're thinking and clear out while you can?"
  • (Brian Dennehy) "He was just another drifter who broke the law."
  • (Richard Crenna) "Vagrancy wasn't it? That's gonna look real good on his grave stone in Arlington: Here lies John Rambo, winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor, survivor of countless incursions behind enemy lines. Killed for vagrancy in Jerkwater, USA."
  • (Brian Dennehy) "Now don't give me any of that crap Trautman. Do you think Rambo was the only guy who had a tough time in Vietnam? He killed a police officer for Christ's sake."
  • (Richard Crenna) "You're god**** lucky he didn't kill all of you."

And he's laying there, he's f***ing screaming. There's pieces of him all over me, just --"
  • (Sylvester Stallone) "like this, and I'm tryin' to pull him off, you know, my friend that's all over me. I've got blood and everything and I'm tryin' to hold him together. I'm puttin' -- the guy's f***in' insides keep coming out. And nobody would help. Nobody would help. He's saying, sayin' "I wanna go home. I wanna go home." He keeps calling my name. "I wanna go home, Johnny. I wanna drive my Chevy." I said "With what? I can't find your f***in' legs. I can't find your legs.""
