2. "Thank God it's only a motion picture!"

3. "Pathetic Earthlings... Who can save you now?"

4. "The first casualty of war is innocence."

5. "A lively comedy about a guy who isn't."

6. "This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

7. "They're not just getting rich... they're getting even."

8. "Man has made his match ... now it's his problem."

9. "They'll never get caught. They're on a mission from God."

10. "They're here to save the world."

11. "Be afraid. Be very afraid."

12. "A tale of murder, lust, greed, revenge and seafood."
