Halo 4 Samuel L Jackson[edit]

Fade to Infinity in flight. The camera pans inside to show the Master Chief, Samuel L Jackson(as an AI), Del Rio, Lasky, and Palmer gathered around the holo-table.

  • Samuel L Jackson: "We gotta turn this ship around. Master Chiefs Warthog was stolen! And I know the son of a bitch who did it. We got to go back to Carinae Station and kick his ass. Who's with me."
  • John-117:: "He's right sir, we need that Warthog."
  • Del Rio: "And with all due respect to you, Soldier, I'm not willing to jeopardize my ship because of the hallucinations of an aging Spartan and his malfunctioning AI."
  • Samuel L Jackson: "Oh wow wow oh ho. Malfunctioning! I respect your position, but you head back to Carinae Station right fucking now, I'm going to AI my boot up your ass."

Infinity slows down and reverses

  • Samuel L Jackson: "Aha that what I thought."


John is sitting on a chair watching a TV. With Cortana talking to him.

  • Cortana: "Nominated for a prestigious award, in recognition of your valor, heroism, and sacrifice."
  • John-117: I don't need medals or rewards Cortana.
  • Cortana: But its symbolic, a celebration of something great in a time of war and doubt.
  • John-117: Service and the respect of my fellow soldiers is all the reward I ask.
  • Cortana: Chief, Samuel L Jackson is handing out the rewards.

John falls off his chair.

  • John-117: I'll need a tux.


  • Note John didnt win so this clip was never shown.

Cortana appears

  • Cortana: "It is with enormous gratitude and humility that he is here tonight to accept the reward in person, and to give his speech that hes been preparing all week. Ladies and gentlemen, Master Chief Petty Officer Spartan 117."

The camera pans to John-117 as a light lights him up.

  • John-117: "Thanks!"
