My Favorite character from the movie "ALIENS"
Cpl. Dwayne Hicks
Hero, or more?
Hicks sizing up a "tough" situation.
He's the guy who got the Marines out of
a tough situation while in the hive. Sgt. Apone had already been killed
and the task of leading the panicked Marines to safety fell into the lap
of the next in command, Cpl. Hicks. Without his skill his trusty loaded
sawed off shotgun, it's quite probable that all of the Marines would have
died that fateful day.
(Hicks consoles a friend who's down in
(The ALIENS taste the cold steel of a
few rounds of Armour piercing ammo)
Quotable Hicks Quotes
Quote #1 "Drake, we are leaving." while
exiting the hive (I believe it's one of the most mis-quoted lines in all
of movie history. Most believe that the quote is , "Marines we are
leaving" <which I believe is much cooler> but upon further inspection
I believe that my interpretation is correct.
Quote #2 "Looks like the new Lieutenant's
too good to eat with the rest of us grunts." Hicks first spoken words.
Quote #3 "They really kick @ss." About
the robot sentry weapons.
Quote #4 "Eat this." while feeding an
ALIEN his shotgun.
