Neil Armstrong: Are you sure?
Janet Armstrong: Yeah. It’ll be an adventure.
Elliott See: First man to walk on the moon. That’d be something.
Deke Slayton: We’ve chosen a job so difficult, requiring so many technological developments, we are going to have to start from scratch. Only after we master these tasks, do we consider trying to land on the moon.
Reporter: Neil, if this flight is successful, you’ll go down in history. What kind of thoughts do you have about that?
Neil Armstrong: We’re planning on the flight being successful.
Reporter: [to Armstrong] Do you question whether the program is worth the cost in money and in mind?
[referring to the spacecraft]
Mike Collins: Man, that is a big motherfucker.
Buzz Aldrin: It’ll go up like a half kiloton A-bomb if it blows.
Deke Slayton: The vehicle is not safe.
Neil Armstrong: We need to fail down here so we don’t fail up there.
Janet Armstrong: This isn’t just another trip, Neil. You’re not just going to work.
Rick Armstrong: Do you think you’re coming back?
Neil Armstrong: There are risks, but we have every intention of coming back.

NASA Engineer: Somebody got a Swiss army knife?
Neil Armstrong: A Swiss army knife? Are you kidding me?
NASA Engineer: Here we go.
NASA Projection Room Employee: Six, five, four, three, two…
[as they are in the spacecraft]
Neil Armstrong: We have serious problems.
Neil Armstrong: You’re down here and you look up and you don’t think about it too much, but space exploration changes your perception. It allows us to see things that we should have seen a long time ago.
Deke Slayton: We’ve got this under control.
Janet Armstrong: You’re a bunch of boys, and you don’t have anything under control!
