  • (Clint Eastwood) "You think it's so awful the other side has a germ formula? It's against the Geneva Convention, isn't it, and they stole it from us. Well what the hell are we doing with it in the first place? We're not supposed to have one either."

  • (Clint Eastwood) "And why am I the only one who can perform this sanction?"
  • (Thayer David) "First, do you accept the assignment?"
  • (Clint Eastwood) "Yes, I accept."
  • (Clint Eastwood) "What we have is this: the target is male, he is an accomplished mountain climber. We learned this from a note we intercepted. Also, a witness said he limped."

  • (Clint Eastwood) "Some of you will continue in your education. Some of you will continue with your interest in art. Some of you will have interests other than that. If we've learned nothing else this year, I hope you've learned the stupidity of the statement that art belongs to the world. 'Cause art belongs to the cultivated who can appreciate it. The majority of the great unwashed does not fit into this category -- and neither, I'm sorry to say, do most of you."
  • (Clint Eastwood) "It's dangerous, child, to come to conclusions when you don't have any facts. Now let me lay some on you. Sure Dragon knows what he's doing, just like he knew what he was doing when he worked for the Nazis during World War II."
  • (Vonetta McGee) "What?"
  • (Clint Eastwood) "Oh, you didn't know that, did you? Yes your "wrap him up in red, white, and blue" Mr. Dragon's a god**** Hessian, that's what he is. And he'd sell out the other side as fast as he'd sell out our side. And he'd sell out his mother, too, if the bloodless freak had one."

  • (Clint Eastwood) "How terrible."
  • (Candice Rialson) "If I don't keep my "B" average, I'll lose my scholarship and I don't think I'll do well on your final exam. I've gained a while new feeling about art but sometimes you can't put your true feelings down on paper."
  • (Clint Eastwood) "How true."

Gregory Walcott as Pope

  • (Gregory Walcott) "My superior wants to see you."
  • (Clint Eastwood) "Well, that doesn't limit the field much."

Michael Grimm as Anderl Meier

  • (Michael Grimm) "I don't think so. But we shall continue with style."

  • (Elaine Shore) "I was expecting you before this. Mr. Dragon does not like to be kept waiting."
  • (Clint Eastwood) "Oh, the impatient albino."
  • (Elaine Shore) "I don't think Mr. Dragon's affliction is a joking matter."
