Rex Kramer: [talking to the airport control tower.] No, we can't do that, the risk of a flame-out is too great. Keep 'em at 24,000. No, feet.
Rex Kramer: Striker, listen, and you listen close: flying a plane is no different than riding a bicycle, just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.
Rex Kramer: Do you know what it's like to fall in the mud and get kicked... In the head... With an iron boot? Of course you don't, no one does. It never happens. It's a dumb question... Skip it.
Dr. Ellison: You have some time left, Mr. Banks. You have some life left. My advice to you is: live it well.
Captain Richard Pearson: Captain, are you surrendering? Do you ask for quarter?
John Paul Jones: No sir! I have no yet begun to fight.
Joseph Tura: It's unbelievable! Unbelievable! I come home to find a man in the same boat with me and my wife says to me, "What does it matter?"
Lieutenant Stanislav Sobinski: But, Mr. Tura, it's the 'zero hour'.
Maria Tura: You certainly don't want me to waste a lot of time giving you a long explanation.
Joseph Tura: No, but I think a husband is entitled to an inkling.
Maria Tura: No, no, no. I think we've talked much too much about me. Tell me about yourself.
Lieutenant Stanislav Sobinski: Well, there isn't much to tell. I just fly a bomber.
Maria Tura: Oh, how perfectly thrilling.
Lieutenant Stanislav Sobinski: I don't know about it being thrilling. But it's quite a bomber. You might not believe it, but I can drop three tons of dynamite in two minutes.
Maria Tura: Really?
Lieutenant Stanislav Sobinski: Does that interest you?
Maria Tura: It certainly does.
