Charlie Sheen as Chris Taylor

  • (Tony Hoyt) "What the f*** is your problem, Taylor? She's a f***ing dink."
  • (Charlie Sheen) "She's a f***ing human being, man. f*** you."
  • (Charlie Sheen) "Somebody once wrote, "Hell is the impossibility of reason." That's what this place feels like. Hell."
  • (Charlie Sheen) "It's the way the whole thing works. People like Elias get wasted. People like Barnes just go on making up the rules any way they want. So what do we do? Sit in the middle and suck on it. We just don't add up to dry s***, King."
  • (Keith David) "Whoever said we did, man? All you got to do is make it out of here, and it's all gravy. Every day, the rest of your life, gravy."

  • (Francesco Quinn) "How do you know the dinks didn't get him? You've got no proof, man."
  • (Charlie Sheen) "Proof's in the eyes, man. When you know, you know. You were there, Rhah, and I know what you were thinking. I say we frag that f***er tonight."
  • (Charlie Sheen) "The village, which had stood for maybe 1,000 years, didn't know we were coming that day. If they had, they would have run. Barnes was at the eye of our rage. And through him, our Captain Ahab. He would set things right again. That day, we loved him."
  • (Charlie Sheen) "Day by day, I struggle to maintain not only my strength but my sanity. It's all a blur. I have no energy to write. I don't know what's right and what's wrong anymore. The morale of the men is low. A civil war in the platoon. Half the men with Elias, half with Barnes. There's a lot of suspicion and hate. I can't believe we're fighting each other when we should be fighting them."
  • (Sgt. Elias) "What happened today was just the beginning. We're gonna lose this war."

  • (Sgt. Elias) "We been kicking other peoples asses for so long, I figured it's time we got ours kicked."
  • (Charlie Sheen) "Well, here I am, anonymous, all right. With guys nobody really cares about. They come from the end of the line, most of them, small towns you never heard of: Pulaski, Tennessee; Brandon, Mississippi; Pork Bend, Utah; Wampum, Pennsylvania. Two years' high school's about it. Maybe if they're lucky, a job waiting for them back in a factory. But most of 'em got nothing. They're poor. They're the unwanted. Yet they're fighting for our society and our freedom. It's weird, isn't it? They're the bottom of the barrel, and they know it. Maybe that's why they call themselves grunts, 'cause a grunt can take it, can take anything. They're the best I've ever seen, Grandma. The heart and soul."
  • (Charlie Sheen) "Die you, motherf***ers. Die."

  • (John C. McGinley) "That's just great, Bob, and what do you want me to do? Send one of my guys out to get zapped so some lame-ass just in from the world can get his beauty sleep? No."
  • (Sgt. Elias) "Hey, O'Neill, take a break. You don't have to be a prick every day of you life, you know."
  • (John C. McGinley) "Bob, I got a bad feeling on this one, all right? I mean, I got a bad feeling. I don't think I'm gonna make it out of here. You understand what I'm saying to you?"
  • (Sgt. Barnes) "Everybody got to die sometime, Red."
  • (John C. McGinley) "Excuses are like assholes, Taylor, everybody got one."

  • (Unnamed) "Roger your last, Bravo Six. Can't run it any closer. We're hot to trot and packing snake and nape, but we're bingo on fuel."
  • (Dale Dye) "For the record, it's my call. Dump everything you've got left on my pos. I say again, expend all remaining in my perimeter. It's a lovely f***ing war. Bravo Six out."
  • (Unnamed) "Roger your last, Bravo Six. We copy. It's your call. Get them all in their holes down there. Hang tough, Bravo Six. We're coming cocked for treetops."

  • (Corey Glover) "It ain't D-E-R-E, it's D-E-A-R. And "Sarah" ain't got no two R's, King. Damn, you dumb."
