"You wanted to see me, Colonel?"
"This low gravity'll make you soft. And when you get soft, Pandora will eat you and shit you out dead with zero warning. I read your file, Corporal. Venezuela, that was some mean bush. Nothin' like that here, though. You got some heart kid, showin' up here."
"Figured it was just another hellhole."

"Son, I take care of my own. You get me what I need, I make sure that when you rotate home you get your legs back, your real legs."
"That sounds real good sir."

"Grace, this is Jake Sully."
"Ma'am."
"Yeah, yeah, I know who you are and I don't need you. I need your brother. You know, the PhD who trained for 3 years for this mission."
"He's dead. I know it's a big inconvenience for everyone."
"How much lab training have you had?"
"I dissected a frog once."
"Ya see, ya see? They're just pissing on us without even giving us the courtesy of calling it rain. I'm going to Selfridge."
"Grace. No, I don't think..."
"No, man, this is such bullshit! Gonna kick his corporate butt. He has no business sticking his nose in *my* department."

"So you just figured you'd come here, to the most hostile environment known to men, with no training of any kind, and see how it went? What was going through your head?"
"Maybe I was sick of doctors telling me what I couldn't do."

"She said all energy is only borrowed, and one day you have to give it back."

"Those trees were sacred to the Omaticaya in a way you can't imagine."
"You know what? You throw a stick in the air around here it falls on some sacred fern, for Christ's sake!"
"I'm not talking about pagan voodoo here - I'm talking about something REAL and measurable in the biology of the forest."
"Which is *what* exactly?"
"What we think we know - is that there's some kind of electrochemical communication between the roots of the trees. Like the synapses between neurons. Each tree has ten to the fourth connections to the trees around it, and there are ten to the twelfth trees on Pandora..."
"That's a lot, I'm guessing."
"That's more connections than the human brain. You get it? It's a network -a global network. And the Na'vi can access it - they can upload and download data - memories - at sites like the one you just destroyed."
"What the HELL have you people been smoking out there? ....They're just. Goddamn. Trees."
"You need to wake up, Parker. The wealth of this world isn't in the ground - it's all around us. The Na'vi know that, and they're fighting to defend it. If you wanna share this world with them, *you* need to understand *them*."
"I think we understand them just fine. Thanks to Jake here."

"With your permission, I will speak now. You would honor me by translating. ....The Sky People have sent us a message... that they can take whatever they want. That no one can stop them. Well, we will send them a message. You ride out as fast as the wind can carry you. You tell the other clans to come. Tell them Toruk Macto calls to them! You fly now, with me! My brothers! Sisters! And we will show the Sky People... that they cannot take whatever they want! And that this... this is our land!"

"That is one big damn tree!"
