Ms. Kegel: Gentlemen, these cards will give you access to order GloboTech products. You are issued passwords.
Irwin Mayfair: Mine's Gizmo!

Archer: Just because you can't see something doesn't mean it's not there.

Archer: What's your name?
Alan: Alan. Now, shut up!
Archer: Greetings, Alan-now-shut-up.
Alan does a double take at Archer's remark

Chip Hazard: You've got a lot of guts. Let's see what they look like.

Chip Hazard: I love the smell of polyurethane in the morning.

Chip Hazard: Nick Nitro's battery has run out, but his memory lives on.

Chip Hazard: We are the Commando Elite. Everything else is just a toy!

Chip Hazard: His battery has run out but his memory will keep going, and going, and going.

Chip Hazard: Soldiers, no poor sap ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by being all that he can be. Damn the torpedoes, or give me death! Eternal vigilance is the price of duty. And, to the victors go the spoils. So remember: you are the best of the few and the proud. So ask not what your country can do for you, only regret that you have but one life to live! The war against the Gorgonites will be won! Commando Elite, let the first shot be fired! Search out the Gorgonites and frag them all!

Archer: Greetings. I am Archer, emissary of the Gorgonites.
Alan: Awfully polite for a monster.

Archer: Alan, friend of Archer, defender of all Gorgonites, Keeper of Encarta...
Alan: "Keeper of Encarta"? You were using my computer? If I find a virus in there, you're headed for the microwave!

Fimple residence. Major Hazard stumbles upon a bunch of female dolls, causing the Commando Elite to hoot and holler at seeing girls
Brick Bazooka: I want a three day pass, sir!
Major Hazard: Denied! This is the new army, soldier. We are use to these dolls for "reinforcements". Bring me the head of Nick Nitro.
Commando Elite is shown cannibalizing the defeated Nick Nitro and in a scene akin to classic film, electrifies girl dolls. One begins walking to Major Hazard
Gwendy: Hi there, Cannon Fodder Gwendy reporting for duty!

About Small Soldiers[edit]

  • Originally I was told to make an edgy picture for teenagers, but when the sponsor tie-ins came in the new mandate was to soften it up as a kiddie movie. Too late, as it turned out, and there are elements of both approaches in there. Just before release it was purged of a lot of action and explosions.
