Jake: The forests of Pandora hold many dangers. But the most dangerous thing about Pandora is that you may grow to love her too much.
Jake: We sing the songcords to remember. Each bead, a story in our life. A bead for the birth of our son. A bead when we adopted our daughter, Kiri. Born of Grace’s avatar. A daughter whose conception was a total mystery. A bead for the first communion with Eywa.
Jake: The People say we live in Eywa, and Eywa lives in us. The Great Mother holds all her children in her heart.
Jake: Happiness is simple. But who would’ve thought a jarhead like me could crack the code?
Neytiri: [in Na’vi] When I met your father, I tried killing him.
Jake: [in Na’vi] It was love at first sight.
Jake: [referring to Spider] He wasn’t part of our family. He was like a stray cat. Just always around. Inseparable from our kids. To Neytiri, he would always be alien. One of them.
Jake: Happiness is simple. Like date night. Time away from the kids.

Quaritch: [as he looks at himself in his Na’vi form] Well, ain’t this a b**ch.
Quaritch: [footage of himself when he was alive] You’re a recom now, Colonel, loaded with my memories and my charm. What you won’t remember is my death, because it hasn’t happened yet, and it ain’t going to.
Quaritch: [footage of himself when he was alive] Well, whatever happened, if you’re any clone of mine, you’ll be looking for some payback. And Jake Sully would be at the top of that list. Remember, kid, a Marine can’t be defeated. Oh, you can kill us. But we’ll just regroup in hell. Semper fi.
Quaritch: We are not in Kansas anymore. We are going to Pandora. Now, I know you’re all asking yourselves the same question. Why so blue?
Quaritch: For our sins in our past life, we have been brought back in the form of our enemy. That gives us their size, their strength, their speed. And with our training, that’s a pretty potent mix.
Quaritch: Our mission is to hunt down and kill the leader of the Na’vi insurgency. The one they call Toruk Makto. Jake Sully.

Spider: I’m definitely faster when I’m blue. No, seriously. And the animals respect me more. They don’t think of me as human.
Kiri: Wait. You’re human?
Neytiri: You are very hard on them.
Jake: I’m their father. It’s my job.
Neytiri: This is not a squad. It is a family.
Jake: I thought we’d lost them.
Spider: You know what really sucks though? Is you can breathe the Earth air for hours, and I can only breathe your air for like ten seconds.
Kiri: Yeah, Monkey Boy, that really sucks. For you.
Lo’ak: [referring to Grace before she died] So who do you think knocked her up? Pretty sure it was Norm.
Kiri: You do not deserve to live.

Spider: Guys. I mean, sometimes it’s not so great to know who your father was. Whatever. Don’t even remember him.
Lo’ak: No, Spider.
Kiri: Spider. You are not him.
General Ardmore: Earth is dying. Our task here is to tame this frontier. Nothing less than to make Pandora the new home for humanity. But before we can do that, we need to pacify the hostiles.
General Ardmore: Colonel, we believe your Blue Team will be perceived as indigenous and will not trigger the immune response.
Quaritch: And how might we test that hypothesis, General?
General Ardmore: The hard way.
Lo’ak: [to Quaritch, in Na’vi] Sorry, I don’t speak English to buttholes.
Quaritch: Well, I figured they sent you back to Earth.
Spider: They can’t put babies in cryo, dips**t.

Neteyam: Dad, I’m a warrior like you. I’m supposed to fight.
Neytiri: Demon! I will kill you as many times as I have to!
Quaritch: I guess you and the Corporal have been pretty busy, haven’t you? Dropped yourself a whole litter of half-breeds.
Neytiri: I cannot. You cannot ask this. I cannot leave my People. I will not.
Jake: [referring to Quaritch] He’s hunting us. He’s targeting our family.
Neytiri: You cannot ask this! The children. Everything they’ve ever known. The forest. This is our home!
Jake: He had our children. He had them under his knife!
Neytiri: My father gave me this bow as he lay dying. And he said protect the People. You’re Toruk Makto!
Jake: This will protect the People!

Jake: [to Neytiri] If the People harbor us, they will die. Do you understand? Look, I got nothing. I got no plan. But I can protect this family. That I can do.
Quaritch: [to Spider] Kid, you got heart. Those science pukes leaned on you pretty hard. But you gave them nothing. I respect that.
Quaritch: [to Spider] I’m not that man. But I do have his memories. Enough to know that, well, he wasn’t always the best father. But that’s not an apology. I’m not your father. Technically, you and I, we’re nothing to each other. But I can help you. I can get you out of here. I’m not going to ask you to betray Jake Sully. I know you’d never do that. You’re loyal, and I admire loyalty. Just ride along.

Jake: This is like stones in my heart. Tarsem is wise for his years. He will be a strong Olo’eyktan. The leader must die. So the leader can be born. Toruk Makto will disappear. The People will be safe.
Jake: One life ends. Another begins.
Tonowari: Why do you come to us, Jakesully?
Jake: We seek uturu.
Jake: Yes, sanctuary for my family.

Tonowari: We are Reef People. You are Forest People. Your skills will mean nothing here.
Jake: Well, we will learn your ways.
Jake: Look, I was born of the Sky People, and now I am Na’vi. Alright? You can adapt. We will adapt.
Tonowari: But we Metkayina are not at war. We cannot let you bring your war here.
Jake: I’m done with war. Okay? I just want to keep my family safe.
Neytiri: Uturu has been asked.
