- Church: My daddy always said, "When you want to hammer a nail into a piece of wood, don't do anything fancy. Just get a hammer and pound the son of a bitch." Colonel Mekum: And what the hell is that crap supposed to mean in English, Captain?
Sandra: How do you know they'll be back? Todd: Because they're soldiers, Sir. Like me. Sandra: Why are they doing this? Todd: They're obeying orders, Sir. It's their duty. Sandra: Do you know how many there will be? Todd: Seventeen more, Sir. Sandra: Oh my God, you can't fight seventeen more on your own, you have to organize us. We're not cowards, we'll do as you tell us, we'll fight. Todd: No. Sandra: Why not? Todd: Soldiers deserve soldiers, Sir. Sandra: But one soldier, against seventeen. What are you going to do? Todd: I'm going to kill them all, Sir.
Sandra: Sgt. Todd... what's it like? What's it like being a soldier? What do you think about? [silence] Sandra: You must think about something? [silence] Sandra: What about feelings then? [silence] Sandra: You must *feel* something? [pause] Todd: Fear. Sandra: Fear? Todd: Fear and discipline. Sandra: Now? Todd: Always.
Church: My daddy was in maintenance and he had a saying, he used to say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
[after Caine 607 loses an eye to Todd during training] Colonel Mekum: Do you know how much it costs to breed you, you big moron? To train you? To feed you? What good is this man now? He's got no depth perception! All he can do is walk point and take the first hit!
- Kurt Russell sustained a broken ankle during the first week of filming, and got a week off. When he came back, all of the scenes where he was laying down were filmed. They followed that with the sitting-down scenes, then the standing-still scenes. Finally, the action scenes were shot. The last scene filmed was the "running" scene between Todd and Caine 607 near the beginning of the movie.
Shorter people (4' tall) were used in the scenes with the large military vehicles to make the machines look larger.
Among the garbage on the planet is the USS Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the F-117X Remora from Executive Decision (1996), a spinner from Blade Runner (1982), and a piece of the Lewis & Clark from Event Horizon (1997).
Todd's service record, displayed on a computer screen, includes the following: - The battles of Tannhauser Gate and Shoulder of Orion (references to Blade Runner (1982)) - Receipt of the "Plissken Medal" (reference to Escape from New York (1981) and its sequel Escape from L.A.). Receipt of the "O'Neil Ring Award" (reference to Stargate (1994)) - Receipt of the "Cash Medal of Honor" (reference to Tango and Cash (1989)) Receipt of the "Maccready Cross" (reference to The Thing (1982)) - Receipt of the "Capt Ron Trophy" (reference to Captain Ron (1992)) - Receipt of the "McCaffrey Fire Award" (reference to Backdraft (1991)) - Receipt of the "Dexter Riley Award" (reference to The Strongest Man in the World (1975), Now You See Him, Now You Don't (1972), The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (1969)) - Citations for the Nibian Moons Campaign, the Antares Maelstrom War and the War Of Perdition's Flames, locations referred to in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan (1982).
