Private Ryan:"My family is with me today. They wanted to come with me. To be honest with you, I wasn't sure how I'd feel coming back here. Every day I think of what you said to me that day on the bridge. I've tried to live my life the best I could. I hope that was enough. I hope that at least in your eyes, I've earned what all of you have done for me."

Corporal Upham:"Caparzo? Is that uh..."
Private Caparzo:"Yeah drop dead Corporal. And another thing, every time you salute the Captain you make him a target for the Germans. So do us a favor, don't do it, especially when I'm standing near him. Capisce?"

Private Reiben:"So Captain, what about you? I mean you don't gripe at all?"
Captain Miller:"I don't gripe to you Reiben. I'm a captain. There's a chain of command. Gripes go up, not down, always up. You gripe to me, I gripe to my superior officer, so on, so on and so on. I don't gripe to you. I don't gripe in front of you. You should know that, your a Ranger."
Private Reiben:"Well I'm sorry, sir, but let's say you weren't a Captain, or maybe I was a Major. What would you say then?"
Captain Miller:"In that case, I'd say this is an excellent mission, sir, with an extremely valuable objective, sir. Worthy of my best efforts, sir. Moreover, I feel heartfelt sorrow for the mother of Private James Ryan and am willing to lay down my life and the lives of my men, especially you, Reiben, to ease her suffering."

General George C. Marshall:"Dear Madam: I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom. Yours very sincerely and respectfully, Abraham Lincoln."

Captain Miller:"Ah, Ryan. I don't know anything about Ryan. I don't care. The man means nothing to me. It's just a name. But if going to Ramelle and finding him so that he can go home. If that earns me the right to get back to my wife, well then that's my mission."

Captain Miller:"You take a standard issue GI sock, cram it with as much Comp B as it can hold, rig up a simple fuse, then coat the whole thing with axel grease. That way when you throw it, it should stick. Its a bomb that sticks, its a sticky bomb. Come up with a better way to knock the tracks off a tank, I'm all ears."
Private Reiben:"This is good. Now we gotta surrender our socks!"

Private Jackson:"Sir, I have an opinion on this matter."
Captain Miller:"Well by all means, share it with the squad."
Private Jackson:"Well by my way of thinking sir, this entire mission is a serious mis-allocation of valuable military resources."
Captain Miller:"Well go on."
Private Jackson:"Well, seems to me sir, that God gave me a special gift, made me a fine instrument of warfare."
Captain Miller:"Reiben, pay attention. Now this is the way to gripe. Continue Jackson."
Private Jackson:"Well what I mean by that sir, if He was to put me and this sniper rifle anywhere up to and including 1 mile of Adolf Hitler, with a clear line of sight sir, pack your bags fellas, the war's over. Amen."
Private Reiben:"Oh that's brilliant bumpkin."
