Malloy Quotes:

  • Snake Plissken: Got a smoke?

    Malloy: The United States is a no-smoking nation. No smoking, no drinking, no drugs. No women - unless of course you're married. No guns, no foul language... no red meat.

    Snake Plissken: [sarcastic] Land of the free.

  • President: All right, I've heard enough. Would you explain to this foot soldier why he's going to do what we tell him to do.

    Snake Plissken: What's he talking about?

    Malloy: The Plutoxin Seven virus.

    Brazen: Genetically engineered. 100% pure death.

    Malloy: It starts with a slight headache, then turns into a fever that gets worse. After a short time, you crash. You bleed out like a stuck pig. Not a pretty sight.

    Malloy: You got it... Snake!

    Snake Plissken: One question: which one of you assholes gets to die trying to stick me?

    Snake Plissken: Catches on quick, doesn't she?

  • Snake Plissken: By the way, who gives me the antidote?

    Malloy: A medical team will be standing by.

    Snake Plissken: Neither one of you?

    Malloy: No.

    Snake Plissken: Good!

    [Snake opens fire on Malloy and Brazen with his assault rifle, but to no effect. Malloy and Brazen do not flinch or even blink]

    Malloy: Ha! We thought you might try that, hotshot. That's why the first clip is loaded with blanks. Bye bye, Snake. Good luck!

  • President: Man is too dumb to survive L.A.

    Malloy: [to Brazen] Go with him. Make sure he doesn't do anything crazy.

  • President: [final scene, talking to Plissken's hologram] What's it going to be, Plissken? Them or us?

    Snake Plissken: I shut down the third world, you win they lose. I shut down America, they win, you lose. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    President: So what are you going to do?

    Snake Plissken: Disappear.

    Brazen: [Plissken types 6-6-6 into the satellite control] He's entered the world code. No target code. Sir, that will shut down the entire planet.

    Snake Plissken: I told you you'd better hope I didn't make it back.

    Malloy: You push that button, 500 years' worth of work will be finished. Our technology, our way of life, our entire history. We'll have to start all over again. For God's sakes, don't do it, Snake!

    Snake Plissken: The name's Plissken.

    Utopia: [Plissken activates the satellites, shutting down all power, which saves Utopia from being executed in the electric chair] He did it! He shut down the Earth!
