Col. Miles Quaritch's Briefing on Pandora Rules December 18, 2009
Colonel Miles Quaritch of the Private Security Force of RDA gallantly briefs the new men who arrived in Pandora in a not-so-optimistic manner.
Col. Quaritch: You're not in Kansas anymore. You're on Pandora, ladies and gentlemen. Respect that fact every second of every day. If there is a Hell, you might want to go there for some R & R after a tour on Pandora.
Out there beyond that fence every living thing that crawls, flies, or squats in the mud wants to kill you and eat your eyes for jujubes.
We have an indigenous population of humanoids called the Na'vi. They're fond of arrows dipped in a neurotoxin that will stop your heart in one minute - and they have bones reinforced with naturally occurring carbon fiber. They are very hard to kill.
As head of security, it is my job to keep you alive. I will not succeed. Not with all of you. If you wish to survive, you need to cultivate a strong, mental attitude. You got to obey the rules: Pandora rules!
