Watts Quotes in Armageddon (1998)
Lev Andropov: It's stuck, yes?
Watts: Back off! You don't know the components!
Lev Andropov: [annoyed] Components. American components, Russian Components, ALL MADE IN TAIWAN!
Rockhound: We're in segment 202, lateral grid 9, site 15H32 - give or take a few yards. Captain America here blew the landing by 26 miles!
Colonel William Sharp: How the hell do you know that?
Rockhound: Because I'm a genius.
Watts: The gauges will not read; they're all peaked like we're plugged into some magnetic field
Rockhound: [sarcastically] Well, who on the spaceship wants to know why?
Gruber, Munitions Specialist: By all means.
Rockhound: 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!
Watts: [showing a video] Neil Armstrong, 1969, bouncing on the moon. He's bouncing because there's less gravity up there than on Earth. This will be similar to the asteroid. So, watch it. Something gets launched off that asteroid with enough force, it's gonna keep on going, right into outer space.
Oscar: [to Bear] What is the deal? Is it just me, or is Watts really hot?
Bear: [nods] Yeah.
Watts: So we have these new generation suits. With directional accelerant thrusters. You won't bounce like Neil Armstrong.
[seeing that Bear is not paying attention]
Watts: Do we have a problem?
Watts: 'Cause I'm trying to describe to you how these DATs keep your ass on the ground, so that if I were to kick you in the balls, and you don't know how to work them, what happens to you?
Bear: I float away.
Rockhound: When do we start training for THAT?
Watts: Because I'm driving you crazy and you're driving me crazy and I'd rather not see you and have you think good things about me than have you see me and hate me. 'Cause I can't afford to have you hate me, Keith. The only things I care about in this goddamn life are me and my drums and you.
Watts: [putting on Keith's diamond earrings] What do you think?
Keith: You look good wearing my future.
Watts: You break his heart, I break your face.
Keith Nelson: I'm sorry. I'm sorry I was so hard on you.
Watts: Me too.
Keith Nelson: You always hurt the ones you love.
Watts: So when are you going to beat the shit out of Amanda Jones?
[In the locker room]
Girl: I've just never seen a girl wearing boys underpants before.
Watts: Have you ever seen a girl with a drumstick shoved up her nose?
Girl: Oh, is that some kind of a threat?
Watts: It's some kind of a warning.
Keith Nelson: You can't tell a book by its cover.
Watts: No, but you can tell how much it's gonna cost you.
Keith Nelson: Wow, I never knew you were so deep.
Watts: You want shallow, call Amanda Jones.
Watts: It's better to swallow pride than blood.
Watts: Don't go mistaking paradise for a pair of long legs.
Watts: It must be a drag to be a slave to the male sex drive.
Keith: It's not just sex.
Watts: Oh, you want to start a book club with her?
Ray: So you gotta hang around for an hour?
Watts: If I feel like it.
Ray: You know how much damage we could do to each other in an hour?
Watts: It's kind of a revolting thought, actually.
Ray: Really? What's revolting mean?
Watts: Oh, God. Get your hands off me, man.
Ray: Does that mean you wanna come over?
Ray: See, a lot of guys I know think that you're... confused. But I know it's just an act. Wanna know how I know?
Watts: Enlighten me.
Ray: Because you radiate this sexual vibe and I know that if you wanted, you could be a girl
Ray: like that.
Watts: Ray, this is 1987. Did you know a girl can be whatever she wants to be?
Ray: I know. My mom's a plumber.
Watts: That explains a lot about you, Ray.
Watts: Keith... you're losing it. And when it's lost, all you are is a loser.
Watts: Get your skag and let's go.
Watts: You couldn't score her in a million years. A, you're too shy and closed up to even approach her, and B, she'd kill you!
Watts: I bet my hands on it.
Watts: I think it's hip that you paint. I think it's hip that I drum. And it's perfect that we're friends.
Watts: [as Martha runs away] Marcy! Marcy May! Where ya goin'?
Watts: Marcy, go, now.
Watts: [repairing the engine] Come to see the fun, sir? It won't be long now.
Morell: Fine, chief, but the captain's a little worried about the noise. Could you do anything to... tone it down a bit?
Watts: Pretty well finished now, sir. We're just flabbin' up the nuts. Could you hear the hammerin' up top?
Morell: Hear it? There were U-boats popping up from miles around complaining about the racket.
