The Guardian

I watched the movie "The Guardian" over the weekend.
This movie had some very good dialogues.. And here are a few I liked.. (ripped from IMDB)


Jake Fischer: You do *not* want to hear about my day.
Emily Thomas: Yeah, I do.
Jake Fischer: Man, this guy Randall, you know, it doesn't matter what I do. It's just not good enough.
Emily Thomas: Maybe he's just trying to push you to be better. We teachers do that to the ones we believe in.
Jake Fischer: No, it's personal with me. He's knows that I'm better then he was. I mean, today I broke every one of his records. I owned them all.
Maggie McGlone: Not all of them. There's one record you won't break.
[takes a picture off the wall]
Maggie McGlone: This is 'The Aegis'. Medical ship. Caught on fire. It was a nightmare; people burning in their beds. And Ben Randall got every one of those people out of there, except for this one guy. And right when the ship started to go down, he reaches down and grabs this guy. He's hanging from the cable with this man's life in his hands, and the winch jams. It's twenty minutes to the base. The man's screaming, but Ben looks him dead in the eye, and do you know what he said? He said "I won't let go."
Emily Thomas: What happened?
Maggie McGlone: Dislocated his shoulder, tore every tendon in his hand, but he didn't let go. Twenty minutes, just fingertips. You break that record, and you give me a call.
Jake Fischer: ...My day was alright.


Jake Fischer: Hey, I wanted to apologize for what I said earlier about you being old and washed up.
[Ben nods]
Jake Fischer: ...Is there anything you'd like to say to me?
Ben Randall: Like what?
Jake Fischer: I don't know, I apologized to you, I just thought that, you know, there might be something you've said or done that you'd like to apologize to me for...
Ben Randall: Why?
Jake Fischer: Cause...that's how's it's done, I...you suck at apologizes.

Billy Hodge: We go to "A" School, which is the most difficult school in the military. The attrition rate's like...what is it, 50 percent?
Jake Fischer: 50 percent.
Billy Hodge: Over 50 percent. We're still here. Cause we're the best of the best. When storms shut down entire ports, you know who goes out? Uh, we do. When hurricanes ground the US Navy, guess who goes out! That's right, we do!
Bartender: Look honey, you'd better keep it down in here.
Billy Hodge: Okay, honey.
[to Jake]
Billy Hodge: She called me 'honey'!
[to the bartender]
Billy Hodge: Okay, honey! But when God himself reaches down from heaven...What does he do, Jake?
Jake Fischer: [trying not to laugh] Rips houses off the foundations.
Billy Hodge: When God himself rips houses off the foundations, we go out! Because we are rescue swimmers, and that's what we do.
