You know something, Utivich? I think this just might be my masterpiece.
Ten-hut! My name is Lt. Aldo Raine and I'm puttin' together a special team; and I need me eight soldiers. Eight Jewish-American soldiers. Now, y'all might've of heard rumors about the armada happening soon. Well, we'll be leaving a little earlier. We're gonna be dropped into France, dressed as civilians. And once we're in enemy territory, as a bushwackin' guerrilla army, we're gonna be doing one thing and one thing only … killing Nazis. Now, I don't know about y'all, but I sure as hell didn't come down from the goddamn Smoky Mountains, cross five thousand miles of water, fight my way through half of Sicily and jump out of a fuckin' air-o-plane to teach the Nazis lessons in humanity. Nazi ain't got no humanity. They're the foot soldiers of a Jew-hatin', mass murderin' maniac, and they need to be dee-stroyed. That's why any and every sumbitch we find wearin' a Nazi uniform, they're gonna die. Now, I am the direct descendant of the mountain man Jim Bridger, and that means I got a little Injun in me. And our battle plan will be that of an Apache resistance. We will be cruel to the Germans, and through our cruelty they will know who we are. And they will find the evidence of our cruelty in the disemboweled, dismembered and disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us, and the Germans won't be able to help themselves but to imagine the cruelty their brothers endured at our hands, and our boot heels, and the edge of our knives. And the Germans will be sickened by us, and the Germans will talk about us, and the Germans will fear us. And when the Germans close their eyes at night and they're tortured by their subconscious for the evil that they've done, it will be with thoughts of us that they are tortured with. Sound good? [Soldiers yell, "Yes, sir!"] That's what I like to hear. But I got a word of warning for all you would-be-warriors: when you join my command, you take on debt, a debt you owe me personally. Each and every man under my command owes me one hundred Nazi scalps. And I want my scalps! And all y'all will get me one hundred Nazi scalps taken from the heads of one hundred dead Nazis, or you will die tryin'!
You probably heard we ain't in the prisoner-takin' business; we in the killin' Nazi business. And cousin, business is a-boomin'.

Tell me, Aldo- if I were sitting where you're sitting, would you show me mercy?

Dialogues from "Inglourious Basterds"

Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt)
→ You know, where I'm from …

Col. Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz)
[interrupting] Yeah, where is that, exactly?

Lt. Aldo Raine
→ Maynardville, Tennessee. I done my share of bootleggin'. Up there, if you engage in what the federal government calls illegal activity, but what we call a man just trying to earn a living for his family selling moonshine liquor, it behooves oneself to keep his wits. Long story short, we hear a story too good to be true – it ain't.

Col. Hans Landa
→ Sitting in your chair, I would probably say the same thing. And nine nine nine point nine nine nine times out of a million you would be correct. But in the pages of history, every once in a while, fate reaches out and extends its hand.

[Long pause]

Col. Hans Landa
[shrugs] What shall the history books read?

Col. Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz)
→ Hermann, uncuff them. [Hermann uncuffs Raine and Utivich, Landa hands his Walther and SS dagger to Raine] I'm officially surrendering myself over to you, Lieutenant Raine. We're your prisoners.

Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt)
→ How 'bout my knife? [Landa chuckles, then gives Raine his Bowie knife] Thank you very much, Colonel. Utivich, cuff the Colonel's hands behind his back.

Col. Hans Landa
→ Oh, is that really necessary?

Lt. Aldo Raine
→ I'm a slave to appearances. [Raine shoots Hermann with Landa's Walther] [to Utivich, handing him the SS dagger] Scalp Hermann.

Col. Hans Landa
→ Are you mad? What have you done? I made a deal with your general for that man's life!

Lt. Aldo Raine
→ Yeah, they made that deal. But they don't give a fuck about him. They need you.

Col. Hans Landa
→ You'll be shot for this!

Lt. Aldo Raine
→ Nah, I don't think so. More like chewed out. I've been chewed out before.
