Newsreel announcer: Join the Mobile Infantry and save the Galaxy. Service guarantees citizenship. Would you like to know more?
Johnny Rico: Someone asked me once if I knew the difference between a civilian and a citizen. I know now. A citizen has the courage to make the safety of the human race their personal responsibility! Dizzy was my friend. She was a soldier. But most important, she was a citizen of the Federation!
Sky Marshall Diennes: We must meet this threat with our courage, our valor, indeed with our very lives to ensure that human civilization, not insect, dominates this galaxy NOW AND ALWAYS!
Carl Jenkins: We thought there might be a Brain Bug on P.
Carmen Ibanez: You knew and still you sent them?
Carl Jenkins: We couldn't afford to launch an operation if there wasn't one. You disapprove? Well, too bad! We're in this for the species, boys and girls. It's simple numbers. They have more. And every day I have to make decisions that send hundreds of people like you to their deaths.
Johnny Rico: Didn't they tell you, Colonel? That's what the Mobile Infantry is good for.
Johnny Rico: You're some sort of big, fat, smart-bug, aren't you?
Jean Rasczak: You see a bug hole, YOU NUKE IT!
Jean Rasczak: Everyone fights, no one quits. If you don't do your job, I'll shoot you myself.
Jean Rasczak: Never pass up a good thing.
Dizzy Flores: Rico, I'm gonna die.
Johnny Rico: No, you're not gonna die!
Dizzy Flores: It's OK, because I got to have you.
Zander Barcalow: One day someone like me is gonna kill you and your whole FUCKIN' RACE!
Johnny Rico: M.I. does the dying; Fleet just does the flying.
