- When I was at the VA, with a hole blown through my life, I had these dreams of flying. I was free. Sooner or later, though, you always have to wake up.
- I became a marine for the hardship. Told myself I can pass any test a man can pass. All I ever wanted was a single thing worth fighting for.
- Everything is backwards now, like out there is the real world and this is the dream.
- They're not going to give up their home. They're not going to make a deal. For what? A light beer and blue jeans? There's nothing that we have that they want. Everything they sent me out here to do is a waste of time.
- This is how it's done. When people are sitting on shit that you want, you make 'em your enemy. Then you justify taking it.
- Sometimes your whole life boils down to one insane move.
- The Sky-People have sent us a message: That they can take whatever they want, and no one can stop 'em. Well, we will send them a message. You ride out as fast as a wing can carry; you tell the other clans to come; you tell them Toruk Makto calls to them. You fly now, with me, my brothers, sisters, and we will show the Sky-People that they cannot take whatever they want, and that this—this is our land!
- Well, uh, I guess this is my last video log. Whatever happens tonight, either way, I'm not going to be coming back to this place. Well, I guess I better go. I don't wanna be late for my own party. It's my birthday, after all. This is Jake Sully signing off.
- You have a strong heart: No fear; but stupid; ignorant; like a child.
Dr. Grace Augustine
- I'm a scientist, remember. And I don't believe in fairy tales.
- They're pissing on us without even the courtesy of calling it rain.
- Our only security lies in pre-emptive attack. We will fight terror with terror. Now, the hostiles believe that this mountain stronghold of theirs is well protected by their – their deity. And when we destroy it, we will blast a crater in their racial memory so deep that they won't come within a thousand klicks of this place ever again.
- Nothing's over while I'm breathing!
- Hey, Sully, how does it feel to betray your own race?
- I want this mission high and tight. I want to be home for dinner.
