Saving Private Ryan (1998)
Sergeant Horvath: This time the mission is the man.
Captain John Miller: Things have taken a turn for the surreal.
Private Ryan: Picture a girl who took a nose dive from the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.
Captain John Miller: Earn this.
[Listening skeptically to German propaganda coming over a loudspeaker] Captain John Miller: "The Statue of Liberty is kaput" -- that's disconcerting.
Captain Miller: Caparzo, get that kid back up there! Private Caparzo: Captain, the decent thing to do would be take her over to the next town. Captain Miller: We're not here to do the decent thing, we're here to follow fucking orders!
[Lining up a rifle shot.] Private Jackson: Be not that far from me, for trouble is near; haste Thee to help me.
[Lining up a rifle shot.] Private Jackson: Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight.
[Lining up a rifle shot.] Private Jackson: My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.
[Lining up a rifle shot.] Private Jackson: O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
Private Jackson: Seems to me, Cap'n, this mission is a serious misallocation of valuable military resources.
Private Jackson: Well, sir, seems to me, God gave me a special gift, fashioned in me a fine instrument of warfare.
Capt. Miller: James... I'm here to tell you your brothers were killed in combat. They're dead. Pvt. Ryan: Which one, sir? Capt. Miller: All of them.
Sgt. Horvath: You don't know when to shut up; you don't know HOW to shut up!
Private Reiben: I got a bad feeling about this one. Captain Miller: When was the last time you felt good about anything?
Private Jackson: What I mean, sir, is if you was to put me with this here sniper rifle anywhere up to and including one mile from Adolf Hitler... with a clean line of sight... well, pack your bags, boys. War's over.
Captain John Miller: It's like finding a needle in a stack of needles.
Reiben: What's the use in risking the lives of the 8 of us to save one guy?
Captain John Miller: He better be worth it. He better go home and cure a disease, or invent a longer-lasting lightbulb.
Private Reiben: You wouldn't shoot the kraut and now you're gonna shoot me? Seargent Horvath: He's better than you.
Captain Brian Hamill: You got to take Caen so you can take Saint Lo. Captain John Miller: You've got to take Saint Lo to take Valognes. Captain Brian Hamill: Valognes you got Cherbourg. Captain John Miller: Cherbourg you got Paris. Captain Brian Hamill: Paris you got Berlin. Captain John Miller: And then that big boat home.
[Miller purposely draws fire.] Sergeant Horvath: Captain, if your mother saw you do that, she'd be very upset.
Private Reiben: What's the saying? "If God's on our side, who the hell could be on theirs?" Upham: "If God is for us, who could be against us?"
[Arguing about whether or not to attack the radio nest] Private Reiben: I'm just saying, this seems like an unnecessary risk considering our objective, sir. Captain John Miller: Our objective is to win the war.
