Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search


  • "[I am] A warrior. Of the...Jarhead clan."
    • Shortly afterwards: "Jarhead clan? And it worked?"
  • Quaritch: (after destroying the Home Tree) Nice work, boys; first round's on me.
    • More Quaritch, when he realizes that the Na'vi are attacking his gunship with bows and arrows.

Quaritch: Oh you gotta be kidding me.

  • Jake: Neytiri calls me "skxawng". It means "moron".
  • When asked how many hours he'd logged in the piloting simulator: "Zip, but I read a manual."
    • Which is a callback to a similar CMoF in Aliens:

Ripley: How many drops is this for you, lieutenant?
Gorman: Thirty eight...simulated.
Vasquez: How many combat drops?
Gorman: Uh, two. Including this one.
Drake: Shit.

Hudson: Oh, man...

    • Also:

Grace: "How much lab experience do you have?"
Jake: "I dissected a frog once."

  • When first controlling his avatar, Jake's tail surprises him when he notices it over his shoulder. When he turns around to look for his tail, it knocks medical supplies off a table.
  • This exchange between Grace and Sully while the latter is first entering his chamber:

Grace: "Just relax and let your mind go blank. That shouldn't be too hard for you."
Sully: "Kiss the darkest part of my lily-white (gets cut off)."

  • For a serious character, Grace gets more of these than you'd expect:

Tsu'tey: "You mated with this woman?!"
Grace: "Oh, shit."

    • If you know any scientists, this line is hilarious. Grace is carried, mortally wounded and half-conscious, to the Tree of Souls that she had been wanting to research for years:

Grace: I need to get some samples...

    • Grace's indignation at Jake not being experienced anywhere in science can be hilarious.

Grace: They're just pissing on us without even giving us the courtesy of calling it rain.

  • Crowning Moment of Funny? Reportedly, Sam Worthington, Jake's actor, emailed Entertainment Weekly with his own ideas for a sequel:

Sam Worthington: Jake should have abused his avatar and be fat and unfit and demand Neytiri to get him a beer.*

  • A hilarious moment from the deleted scenes of the collector's edition: Jake wakes up from his Avatar and goes looking for the others (Grace is outside) and he turns a corner, and Trudy and Norm appear to be in the middle of a lovemaking session. Then Jake's voice over crowns the funny "Norm's attitude has improved lately."
  • An even more hilarious moment from the deleted scenes occurs during the meal at the campfire:

Jake: These rock. What are they?
Ney'tiri: Teylu.
Jake: Teylu?
Neytiri: You call [it] beetle larvae.
Beat
Jake: Well, that's some damn fine Teylu. Just like Grandma's Teylu.

  • The Sturmbeest Hunt had this gem of an exchange:

Jake: Hell yeah!
Neytiri: (who has no idea what it means) Hell yeah!

  • Parker Selfridge's reaction to being lectured by Grace (presumably for the umpteenth time) about having just bulldozed something holy is hilarious.

Grace: Those trees were sacred to the Omaticaya in a way you can't imagine.
Parker: Oh, you know what, you throw a stick in the air around here, it's gonna land on some sacred fern for Christ's sake!

    • Likewise, Parkers retort to Graces lecture after bulldozing the Tree of Voices

Grace: 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.
Parker: What the HELL have you people been smoking out there? They're just goddamn trees!

  • Jake convincing the Na'vi to teach him.

Moat: It is hard to fill a cup that is already full.
Jake: My cup is empty. Trust me.
