Campaign[edit]

Halo: Combat Evolved[edit]

The Pillar of Autumn[edit]

  • "You heard the lady! Move like you've got a purpose!" - To Marines, after Cortana's announcements.

    • "Men, keep your eyes downrange, fingers on the triggers, and we all come home in one piece. Am I right, Marines?" - Johnson's speech on Easy.
    • "Once again, it is our job to finish what the flyboys started. We are leaving this ship's platoon, and engaging the Covenant on solid ground. When we meet the enemy, you will rip their skulls from their spines, and toss 'em away, laughin'! Am I right, Marines?" - Johnson's speech on Normal.
    • "Men, here is where we show those split-chin, squid-head, sons of bitches that they could not have picked a worse enemy than the human race. We are going to blow the hell out of those dumb bugs until we don't have anything left to shoot 'em with! And then, we are going to strangle them with their own living guts! Am I right, Marines?" - Johnson's speech on Heroic.
    • "Men, we led those dumb bugs out to the middle of nowhere to keep 'em from gettin' their filthy claws on Earth. But, we stumbled onto somethin' they're so hot for, that they're scramblin' over each other to get it. Well, I don't care if it's God's own anti-son-of-a-bitch machine, or a giant hula hoop, we're not gonna let 'em have it! What we will let 'em have is a belly full of lead, and a pool of their own blood to drown in! Am I right, Marines?" -Johnson's speech on Legendary.
  • "Uh-huh. Damn right, I am. Now move it out! Double time!" - after Marines' response to his speech.
