• I was only really good at climbing, and I was always climbing buildings. (12:52)

• If I ever come up with something like Dementia, I hope I’m brave enough to identify it and go for a long swim. (35:21)
• In battle you learn one thing. [You need] water, and ammunition. (36:45)
• When you hit the water, you only got a matter of minutes, and if that parachute gets saturated, it’s an anchor. You’re going down. End of story. (38:26)
• If you never quit, you’ll never know how to. (39:37)
• [Marcus] The only reason I knew I could make it, it because I made it through hell week. (40:47)
• The reason they don’t give us – in my day – more psychological techniques, and even some physiological tricks – they wanna see who’s gonna do it on their own. (45:48)
