Basic (2003) Poster


Taye Diggs: Pike


  • [repeated line] 

    Pike : All we got to do is tell the story right.

  • Sgt. Nathan West : Pike, surrender your sidearm for inspection.

    [Pike reaches to give West his gun] 

    Sgt. Nathan West : What the fuck are you doing? Have you lost your fucking mind?

    Pike : Sargent, you told me to...

    Sgt. Nathan West : Are you talking? Did you speak to me? Who the fuck told you to speak? A ranger never relinquishes his weapon. If George S. mother fucking Patton rises from his holy grave, and asks you for your weapon, you will not surrender your weapon.

  • Sgt. Nathan West : Now son, there are people in this world that will kill you for no god damn reason other than something passing through their mind. I hail from Biloxi, Mississippi where vanilla mother fuckers like that used to hang us from trees by our necks on a whim. Now, does that sound like the kind of fucking place you want to god damn grow up?

    Pike : Sargent. No, Sargent.

    Sgt. Nathan West : [chocking Pike]  Are you saying something negative about the Great state of Mississippi?
