master chief quotes

Master chief readies his team
  • John-117: Kelly, Linda, Fred. Gear up, we've got a new mission, and it's gonna need all our skills.
  • Fred-104: (tosses combat knife at practice dummy)
  • John-117: (unimpressed) oh, you can throw a knife. But you know what you can't throw? A party! For my birthday! WHICH WAS WEDNESDAY! (Sobs) I REMEMBERED YOURS!

“Tell me something, Cortana,” the Master Chief said, as he lowered himself to the ground. “How come you’re always advising me to go up gravity lifts, run down corridors, and sneak through forests while making no mention of all the enemy troops that seem to inhabit such places?”

“Because I don’t want you to feel unnecessary,” the AI replied easily. “For example, given the fact that your sensors are telling both of us that there are at least five Covenant soldiers lying in wait farther up the ravine, it’s logical to suppose that there are even more beyond them. Does that make you feel better?”

“No,” the Spartan admitted as he checked to ensure that both of his weapons were fully loaded.

  • Master Chief: I’ve never had a sidekick before.
  • Cortana: It’s easy. I provide the banter and commentary, and you do the stuff.
  • Master Chief: What stuff?
  • Cortana: The talking and the running and the saving of the world. If a helpful hint – or, you know, an inappropriate joke – is needed, bam! I’m right there.
