Col. Willie Sharp
For god's sakes think about what you're doin'. Why are you listening to someone that's a hundred thousand miles away? We're here. No body down there can help us. So if we don't get this job done, then everybody's gone.One minute.I have been drilling holes in the earth for thirty years. And I have never, *never* missed a depth that I have aimed for. And by God, I am not gonna miss this one. I will make 800 feet.42 seconds.But I can't do it alone, Colonel. I need your help.You swear on your daughter's life, on my family's, that you can hit that mark.I will make 800 feet. I swear to God I will.Then let's turn this bomb off.

It takes two people to fly this thing. Either we all stay and die, or you guys draw straws.I say we all stay and die.

[pause, everyone looks at Rockhound]

But that's me.I'll draw. Let's draw.Nobody's gonna draw straws. I'll stay and take care of it.[1795]:Well, I can't live with that sort of thing.Nobody asked you if you could live with it, all right?Bullshit! No way I will let you volunteer for this, so I can go back to my home country like the man who did not volunteer! No way![1799]:Hey man, let's draw, and let's see who's gonna stay up here and dance.Hey guys? I-I know you guys think I'm crazy right now but, I would really like this responsibility.All right. All right.I can do it!Let's just draw straws and get it over with. Come on.[1795]:I ain't drawin' against you, Harry.Well, I'm gonna draw against you Chick, so you better just go ahead and do it.

[They draw straws]

[1795]:Just gimme this thing.

[Lev looks at the straw he has drawn]

Is this good, or bad?

[A.J. has drawn the short straw]

Oh man. Well, we all gotta die right? I'm the guy who gets to do it saving the world.

[In response to Rockhound riding the nuclear warhead]

Get off... the nuclear... warhead.I was doing that guy from that movie, you know, Slim Pickens, where he rides it all the way in, the nuclear warhead.Now.Oh, you didn't see that one, huh?

We're in segment 202, lateral grid 9, site 15H32 - give or take a few yards. Captain American here blew the landing by 26 miles!How the hell do you know that?Because I'm a genius.The gauges will not read; they're all peaked like we're plugged into some magnetic field.[sarcastically] Well, who on the spaceship wants to know why?By all means.The reason we were shooting for grid 8 was because thermographics indicated that grid 9 was compressed iron ferrite. Which means you landed us on a goddamn iron plate!

Chick

[Just before zero barrier]

Somethings not right, too much time has gone by. We're going back to do it ourselves.Just don't, wait one minute.
