Jake Sully: Everything is backwards now, like out there is the true world, and in here is the dream.

Col. Quaritch: You haven’t got lost in the woods, have you? You still remember what team you’re playing for?

Neytiri: You are Omaticaya now. You may make your bow from the wood of Hometree. And you may choose a woman. We have many fine women. Ninat is the best singer.
Jake Sully: I don’t want Ninat.
Neytiri: Peyral is a good hunter.
Jake Sully: Yes, she is a good hunter. But I’ve already chosen. But this woman must also choose me.
Neytiri: [smiles] She already has.
[They kiss]

Selfridge: [In the tech room, Selfridge putts a golf ball into a mug and laughs] You see that?
Worker: Yes sir!
Selfridge: No you didn’t, you were looking at the monitor. I love this putter, Ronnie! I love this putter!
Dr. Grace Augustine: Parker. You know, I used to think it was benign neglect, but now I see that you are intentionally screwing me.
Selfridge: Grace, you know, I enjoy our little talks.

Jake Sully: He’s dead. I know it’s a big inconvenience for everyone.
Dr. Grace Augustine: How much lab training have you had?
Jake Sully: I dissected a frog once.

Col. Quaritch: This low gravity makes you soft. You get soft and Pandora will shit you out dead with zero warning.

Col. Quaritch: Look, Sully, I want you to learn this savages from the inside, I want you to gain their trust. I need to know how to force their cooperation or hammer them hard if they won’t.

[last lines]
Jake Sully: Well, uh, I guess this is my last video log. Whatever happens tonight, either way, I’m not going to be coming back to this place. Well, I guess I better go. I don’t wanna be late for my own party. It’s my birthday, after all. This is Jake Sully signing off.

Trudy Chacon: [fires on Quaritch’s Hellicopter] Your’e not the only one with a gun, Bitch!

Jake Sully: They’re not going to give up their home. They’re not going to make a deal. Pff for what? A light beer and blue jeans? There’s nothing that we have that they want. Everything they sent me out here to do is a waste of time. They’re never going to leave hometree.

Jake Sully: With your permission, I will speak now. You would honor me by translating.

Jake Sully: Look, they sent me here to learn your ways. So that one day I could bring this message and that you would believe it.

Jake Sully: Look, at first it was just orders. And then, everything changed. Okay, I fell in love. I fell in love with the, with the forest, with the Omaticaya people, with you. With you.

Dr. Grace Augustine: Don’t play with that. You’ll go blind.

Neytiri: You have a strong heart. No fear… but stupid! Ignorant like a child!

Col. Quaritch: Thanks Jake, I’m gettin all emotional, ‘might just give you a big wet kiss!
Moat: It is hard to fill a cup that is already full.
Jake Sully: My cup is empty. Trust me. Just ask Dr. Augustine. I’m no scientist.
Moat: Then what are you?
Jake Sully: I was a marine. A warrior… of the uh… Jarhead Clan.

Neytiri: I’m with you now, Jake. We are mated for life.
Jake Sully: What the hell are you doing, Jake?

Dr. Grace Augustine: Stay with the ship. One idiot with a gun is enough.

Col. Quaritch: Hey Sully… how does it feel to betray your own race? You think you’re one of them? Time to wake up!

Norm Spellman: Oh… my… God…
Trudy Chacon: [laughs] You should see your faces.

Tsu’tey: YOU!
[pushes Jake, Neytiri exclaims]
Tsu’tey: You mating with this woman?
Dr. Grace Augustine: Oh, shit!

Trudy Chacon: Screw this. I didn’t sign up for this shit!

Dr. Grace Augustine: [Emerging from her avatar pod] Where’s my goddamn cigarette? What’s wrong with this picture!

Jake Sully: The sky people have sent us a message… that they can take whatever they want… and 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… You tell them Toruk Mak Tao calls to them… and you fly now with me… my brothers, sisters… And we will show the sky people that they cannot take whatever they want… Because this… this is our land.

Trudy Chacon: I was hoping for some kind of tactical plan that didn’t involve martyrdom.

Selfridge: Isn’t that the whole point of your little puppet show? You walk like them, you talk like them. We build them a school, teach them English, but after how many years the relations with the indigenous are only getting worse.
Dr. Grace Augustine: Yeah, well that tends to happen when you use machine guns on them.

Neytiri: Your ikran must choose you in return.
Jake Sully: How will I know if he chooses me?
Neytiri: He will try to kill you.
Jake Sully: Outstanding.

[repeated line]
Neytiri: I See you.

Col. Quaritch: I take care of my own son. You get me what I need, I make sure that when you rotate home you get your legs back, your real legs.
Jake Sully: That sounds real good sir.

Col. Quaritch: I want this mission high and tight. I want to be home for dinner.

Col. Quaritch: Out beyond that fence every living thing that crawls, flies or squats in the mud wants to kill you and eat your eyes for jujubees.

Col. Quaritch: I can do it with minimal casualties to the indigenous. We’ll clear them out with gas first. It’ll be humane. More or less.

Trudy Chacon: We’re going up against gunships with bows and arrows.
Jake Sully: Well, I guess we better stop him.

Selfridge: Look you’re supposed to be winning the hearts and minds of the natives. Isn’t that the whole point of your little puppet show? If you walk like them, you talk like them they’ll trust you. We build them a school, teach them English. But after – how many years – the relations with the indigenous are only getting worse.
Dr. Grace Augustine: Yeah, well that tends to happen when you use machine guns on them.
Selfridge: Right. Come with me. You see this? This is why we’re here. Because this little gray rock sells for $20 million a kilo. This is what pays for the whole party, and it’s what pays for your science. Those savages are threatening our whole operation. We’re on the brink of war and you’re supposed to be finding me a diplomatic solution. So use what you’ve got, and get me some results

Jake Sully: What are they?
Neytiri: Seed to the Secret tree. Very pure spirits.
Jake Sully: Aha…

Dr. Grace Augustine: What are you gonna do, Ranger Rick? Huh, you gonna shoot me?
Col. Quaritch: I could do that.
Col. Quaritch: If there is a hell you might want to go there for some R&R after a tour on Pandora

Col. Quaritch: As head of security, it’s my job to keep you alive. I will not succeed – not with all of you.

Jake Sully: Sometimes your whole life boils down to one insane move
