James Cutter/Quotes

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

The following are a list of quotes from Captain James Cutter.

Halo Wars[edit]

  • "Captain's report, February 4th, 2531. Five years, five long years. That's how long it took us to get Harvest back..."
  • "At first it was going well..."
  • "Then setback after setback..."
  • "Loss after loss..."
  • "Made what was going to be a quick and decisive win..."
  • "Into five years of Hell..."
  • "Of course, that's all Harvest really is today..."
  • "It's Hell down there, but now it's ours again."
  • "Prep for pod launches, bring weapon systems online."
  • "Harvest may be ours again, but I don't think the Covenant appreciate that yet."
  • "Seargent Forge report."
  • "Damn it, that complicates our mission. Anders, what have you got?"
  • "We need to turn that around, Sergeant. Serina, what's our status?"
  • "What made you choose my observation deck as your lab, Professor?"
  • "Forge doesn't think it's safe for you to go down there yet. He's quite insistent."
  • "I'm approving the mission, but the slightest sign of danger and I'm pulling you out. Is that understood?"
  • "Our primary mission here is to reach that structure, destroying that base is a secondary objective."
  • "If the Covenant detonate those explosives our mission here is over! Get to the detonator!"
  • "Sergeant, Alpha Base won't be able to respond in time, we've got Grizzlies inbound from Spirit of Fire, hold on down there."
  • "Our orders are to investigate Harvest. We still don't know a lot about what's going on down there."
  • "Very well, Professor. I'll clear it with Admiral Cole. Serina, set course for Arcadia."
  • "Serina? Situation update, please."
  • "We can not lose our foothold on Arcadia, gentlemen. Secure a defensible position, and hold it until we can reinforce you!"
  • "So...it's an energy shield that they can deploy on the planet."
  • "Agreed, we need to find out what that is, can we use the ships cannons and take it out directly?"
  • "Professor, Sergeant Forge, let's get that shield down!"
  • "Are you sure this is it, Serina?"
  • "All hands, engage! Serina, I've got troops out there still! Get them back on board now!"
  • "Forge, get out there and get those things off my ship! You can requisition troops from the airlocks on the deck, if we lose those airlocks, we'll be defenseless."
  • "Serina, maximum power to the engines. Get us out of here!"
  • "Is this really going to work, Professor?"
  • "Enough to destroy all the ships here before the Covenant can get a chance to make anything of them."
  • "I don't want to take anymore chances flying that core in, we're changing this to a ground operation."
  • "Let's see if we can't turn that to our advantage. Serina, plot a course that takes us into the sun. We're going to slingshot around it."
  • "Professor, there's been no sign of the Covenant for almost two weeks. There's nothing to do."
  • "But nothing, Professor. You got us all out of there alive. Get some rest."

Halo Wars 2[edit]

  • "Twenty eight years Professor, let's see what kind of galaxy we woke up to."
  • “We are just one ship… and an old one at that. But here we are. Thirty years past what anyone could ask of us. Our war is gone. The lives we had are gone. The worlds we knew have moved on. And now, all that we may have left are those standing beside us and the duty that defines us – battle after battle, fighting side-by-side together. Where you see half a crew, Isabel, I see family, courage, and a thousand heroes who swore to fight their way through hell before they’d ever turn their backs and run. And where you see one old ship… I see home. And that is always worth fighting for! If we don’t stop Atriox now, we leave the galaxy at the mercy of a monster. So no, Isabel. We won’t be running anywhere today.”
