Com·pen·di·um of Badass qoutes



Id like to request a compilation of Badass military quotes, scientific statements, and other helpful words to assist me in XENO DEAD-ZONE. I feel like I’m not giving my players a cool experience, cause I don’t know many cool quotes from the Alien, Pred, SS Troopers, and other cool military sci-fi movies or books. Anywho, I’d like a list of cool things an NPC, Player could or would say. Maybe we could start one here or is there one in existence already?

I keep looking at the COMMANDO QUIRK TABLE and maybe that’s a place we could start, couple quotes for each of those?

:red_circle: Country:“Son of a bitch is dug in like an Alabama tick.” Blain, Predator.
:red_circle: Old School: “I once fought two days with an arrow through my testicle.” Godfrey, Kingdom of Heaven.
:red_circle: “in the pipe, 5 by 5” Medivac, StarCraft - no idea what that one means but it sounds cool!

I dunno I just wanted some cool things to say, as a GM or Player.
What do y’all think?


Hilarious. This quote is a reference to the Aliens movie, where it originally appears during the dropship scene.


Aw, nice! Musta been fate :8ball:

edit: Looked online and “in the pipe…” means: on target, and “…5 by 5” means: near to perfect. :+1:t3:


I always pull out my Nada lines from “They Live”:

I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass - and I’m all out of bubblegum.

It looks like you dipped your face in the cheese dip back in 1957.

These have turned into regular quotes at my table thanks to Key&Peele


Gonna get hypothetical on that clavicle.


I love you in ways I’m not ready to admit too for you knowing that, lol


The common Key & Peele quotes at my table mostly come from the Kanye the Giant sketch.


Based on his running of a XDZ game, @Sweenie_McGuffin may have what it takes for contribution here!


“These are great days we’re living, bros. We are jolly green giants, walking the Earth with guns. These people we wasted here today are the finest human beings we will ever know. After we rotate back to the world, we’re gonna miss not having anyone around that’s worth shooting.”

I would recommend taking a look at proper military radio etiquette. Knowing the military alphabet gives a bit of flavor, “Tango One, this is Delta Four Two, how copy, over?”
Unit designated D42 is opening the radio network and attempting to raise unit designated T1.
“Delta Four Two, this is Tango One, read you Five by Five, over.”
Unit T1 responds that radio reception is perfect.
“Tango One, this is Delta Four Two, proceed to RP Bravo for exfil, over.”
Unit D42 is commanding unit T1 to move to Rally Point designated B for exfiltration.
“Delta Four Two, this is Tango One, Good Copy, over.”
Unit T1 responds that they understand the command.
“Delta Four Two out.”
Unit D42 is closing the net and does not plan to send any further messages at this time.
The cool part is that the above conversation could work to say, “Hey meet me at the gas station for a ride home.”

How do they leave off, “Every meal’s a banquet, every paycheck’s a fortune, every formation a parade. I LOVE the 'Corps!”


Two of the best:

“I WILL motivate you Private, if it short-dicks every cannibal in the Congo!”


Door Gunner: “GET SOME!” (dat-dat-dat-dat)
Joker: “How do you know who is the enemy and who isnt?”
Gunner: “Simple…anyone who runs, is a V.C. Anyone who doesn’t, is a WELL DISCIPLINED V.C.”
Joke: “Do you ever shoot any women, or children?”
Gunner: " …Sometimes"
Joker: “How can you shoot women…and children!?”
Gunner: “Its easy! You just dont lead em so much! HAHAHAHA!” (dat-dat-dat-dat) “AINT WAR HELL!? GET SOME!” (dat-dat-dat-dat)


Here is one of my favorite lines from The Fifth Element, at the conclusion of this scene:

Korben Dallas: We need to find the leader. Mangalores don’t fight without their leaders.

Aknot: [stands up, holding a pistol to Father Vito Cornelius’ head] One more shot, we start killing hostages!

Korben Dallas: That’s the leader.

Aknot: Send someone to negotiate!

Fog: [shrugging and stammering] I…I never negotiated before.

Korben Dallas: You mind if I…try?

Fog: No, no, sure, sure…sure. [yells to the Mangalores] We’re sending somebody in to negotiate!

[Korben strides through the door, levels his weapon and fires a single shot into Aknot’s forehead. Aknot falls to the floor with a thump, leaving Father Vito in shock and the other Mangalores stunned]

Korben Dallas: [pointing the gun around] Anybody else want to negotiate?
