We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Lt. Hart: We are fighting a war thirty years in the future. Our enemy is not human. And we are losing. We need you to fight.
Dan: Is this a joke?
Lt. Hart: In eleven months time, all human beings in the future will be wiped from the face of the earth. Unless you help us.
Muri: You got drafted.
Dan: I will be back. And I love you, chickpea.
Emmy: Why is this happening? What about the teachers deferment, and the veterans deferment?
Dan: If I don’t go, they’re going to draft you in my place. But if something does happen to me, you and Muri will be taken care of.
Emmy: If something happens to you, Dan? Seventy percent of draftees do not return.
President: Seven days from now, when you’re sent into that war, you won’t be fighting for your country. You’ll be fighting for the world.
Slade: Boy, they say kids never come by unless they need something.
Dan: Dad, I need your help.
Slade: I’ll get my coat.
Slade: Sometimes a man does what’s best for his family, not himself.
MEPS Tech Officer: Remove your shirt please.
Dan: And what’s this for?
MEPS Tech Officer: It’s just a test.
Dan: Oh, a seat belt. Is it a driving test? No? You don’t have jokes in the future?
MEPS Tech Officer: This device facilitates your jump to and from the future war.
Dan: You alright?
Charlie: Yeah. Going to war.
Lt. Ikemba: Stop talking. Listen.
Charlie: Sorry. When I’m nervous, I talk. I’m like ninety-seven on the nervous scale.
Charlie: How are you so calm?
Dan: Long story.
Charlie: What, are you ex-military?
Dan: Yep. Kind of a short story, I guess.
Dan: That should be fun.
Romeo Command: Welcome to the future. You and your unit are now in 2051.
Dan: They’re everywhere.
Romeo Command: We are food, and they are hungry.
Romeo Command: Our enemy is smarter, faster, and stronger than you can possibly imagine.
Romeo Command: Do you want to see something really dangerous?
Dan: I feel like literally that’s all I’ve been doing since I got here, but okay.
Romeo Command: This is the end. Within the next few weeks, the human species will disappear from the face of the earth. We are literally living on borrowed time.
Charlie: [as he loads his gun] I’m not going to hide. I’m going to fight.
Sgt. Diaz: That’s not even loaded.
Charlie: Yeah. Yeah, it’s not loaded. It’s a pressurized cabin. Why would I load it in the cabin? The bullet goes in the thing, and everybody’s sucked out.
Dan: I was trying to save my daughter. If I got to save the world to save her, then I’m going to do it.
Charlie: [to Dan] Well, it’s nice knowing you.
Lt. Ikemba: Nothing we do here matters.
Dan: Well, that’s where you’re wrong. I don’t believe that one bit.
Dan: There’s still a chance that we can stop this war from ever happening. So we got to fight.
Romeo Command: Together we can stop this war from ever happening.
Dan: This is my opportunity to give this world a second chance. Second hances are really hard to come by.
