Quotes: The Dead Have Names
"There's a clocktower in Hereford where the names of the dead are inscribed. We try to honor their deeds even as their faces fade from our memory. Those memories are all that's left, when the bastards have taken everything else."
Captain Price, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Lockett: You gettin' us out too, Staff Sergeant? Or are we expendable? Hm?
Nantz: All right, Lockett. You want to go there? Let's go there. I commanded men, and men died. Kids. Nineteen years old. The best men I ever led. Do you think for one second that I wouldn't rather trade places with them? I know you think I got my men killed. They're dead. I'm here, like the punchline to some bad joke. You think I like that? You think a minute goes by that those faces aren't right here, seared into my brain? Dante, Thomas T. Corporal. 156509386. Ambruster, William R. Private. 876662354. Wharton, Jeffery H. Lance Corporal. 874273993. Lockett. Duane G. Corporal. 1568709...
Lockett: ...55.
Nantz: Your brother was an outstanding Marine. He was my friend. And I miss him every day.

"The following are the names of the men and women who did not die in service, but who are in fact alive today, because of Janet. Major Samantha Carter. Doctor Daniel Jackson. Colonel Jack O'Neill. Teal'c. Sergeant Connie Smith. Major Ian Hules. Senior Airman Simon Wells..." (fades)
Maj. Samantha Carter, "Heroes, Part 2," Stargate SG-1

"Look each new victim in the eye. And never forget them. They certainly won't forget you."
Major Solf J. Kimblee, Fullmetal Alchemist

"I’m in the morgue, looking at the wall of sealed stasis chambers. Five of the indicator panels are lit. I try to remember something, anything about the names on the panels. Chief Botany Specialist Nathan Rutgers. Security Officer Thara Jhehl. Crewman Recruit Telos. Geology Specialist Juno Ichigaki. Crewman Cdebaat. I know their names, and I knew Cdebaat well enough—I’d brought him on away missions before—to know he was the kind of Tellarite who fully lived up to their stereotype of stubborn and argumentative and fully enjoyed that he did so."
Captain Kanril Eleya, Bait and Switch
