Quotes: Nice Job Fixing It, Villain
"By now, there's so much paranoia running wild that you got guys checking in because they think they're about to be put on knock-off, see? If you're going to be iced for ratting when you're innocent, why not make yourself guilty, and score all the rewards that go along with it?"
I shrugged at the perfect cross he was describing. It was true enough - every gang put out hits on
suspected rats, so it had to happen. You start suspecting you've been suspected, and...

"I have no fucking idea why Sigma would drain the evil from Zero if they're both supposed to be evil?"

General Katana: Youíre not coming back to Zeist, MacLeod.
Connor MacLeod: I never planned to.
General Katana: What do you mean?
Connor MacLeod: After all this time I was ready to kick back, grow old and die. Then you send those punks down here. You changed everything. And now Iím back to square one - immortal, again! So Katana, letís see who goes back to Zeist after all.

General Katana is a fucking idiot! Of course, MacLeod's not gonna go back to Zeist! Who the fuck would want to go back to that shithole alone, with all his enemies waiting there for him? Even if he was going back, he would have gone back immediately after winning the Prize when he could still fight, not forty years later as an old man! And even if he did do that, you could easily just kill him! He's the one guy you easily defeated the first time you fought! Even nimrod here figured this out, and you hit him in the face for it! We wouldn't even have a movie if you'd just stayed at home, played some Nintendo, and let the poor bastard drink himself to death in two years. But no, you had to go to Earth and shake his fucking tree! Now you done pissed him off, and yeah, now he wants to kill you! Exiling him from Zeist was the nicest thing you could've done for the guy, and literally the only reason he wants to kill you now is you fucked up his retirement!
Spoony, explaining the stupidity of the above scene (among others in the film).
