"You are one UGLY Motherfucker!"
Description: Arnold Schwarzenegger as Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer upon seeing the face of an extra-terrestrial warrior in the motion picture Predator (1987)
Dutch is a former Green Beret hired to lead a group of Commandos for a recovery mission in the jungles of Central America. During his mop-up mission, he encounters a number of human bodies hanging from trees, like a bunch of skinned animals. He soon discovers the perpetrator is an alien warrior who has come to the planet to hunt human beings for sport. But he only targets hostiles, because that is part of the thrill. If the alien senses he is challenged, he attacks and takes his prey. Sometimes taking something owned by his victim for a souvenir (a trophy of the hunt).
As the alien begins to target the remainder of the Commandoes as they try to return to their extraction point, the alien begins to kills them off, one by one. The alien's arsenal of tricks included a helmet that allows it to track humans through the jungle via thermal imaging, and a chameleon-like cloaking shield that enables him to blend invisibly into his surroundings, thus avoiding detection.
Tired of the bloodshed, Dutch Schaefer sets up a trap to capture and kill this predator. At one point, the predator gets the upper hand and standing over Dutch, the alien removes his mask to reveals its face. Startled and disgusted, Dutch silently exclaims, "You are one UGLY Motherfucker!"
But just as it looks like the alien will win, Dutch releases a homemade booby trap made from logs that smashes and crushes the alien. But the alien has a trick up his sleeve. As he lays bleeding, he activates the countdown of a bomb that he carries on his person. Realizing he has a short time to escape to safety, Dutch flees the scene and barely makes it away before a mushroom-cloud explosion tears apart the jungle landscape.
Note: In the sequel Predators (2010), a mercenary named Nikolai repeats the "You're one ugly motherfucker!" phrase, but this time in Russian. Here are a few more quotes from the movie.
|Edwin:||Excuse me. Just what the hell is going on here?|
|Royce:||We're being hunted. The cages. The soldier. All of us. All brought here for the same purpose. This planet is a game preserve. And we're the game. In case you didn't notice, we just got flushed out. They sent the dogs in, just like you if you were stalking boar or shooting quail. They split us apart and they watched. Testing us.|
|Isabelle:||How do you know this?|
|Royce:||Because, that's what I would do.,|
|Stans: [to Edwin]||You know, man, if we ever make it home, I'm going to do so much fucking cocaine. I'm gonna rape so many fine bitches. I'll be like, "What time is it? After 5:00? Damn. Time to go rape me some fine bitches."|
|Stans:||[Celebrating Nikolai's killing of the Tracker Predator]
We killed it. We killed it. We killed it! We fucking... We fucking killed it. We killed it. Whoo! We fucking killed it. Huh? Who's your daddy now, motherfucker? Who's your daddy now, motherfucker? Hunt my dick, bitch!
|Royce:||Why don't you tell them the truth?|
|Isabelle:||I don't know what you're talking about.|
|Royce:||You know what I'm talking about. The way you looked at that thing that was strung up, the way you reacted. She knows what it is. Don't you?|
|Isabelle:||We don't have a name for them. '87, Guatemala. A spec ops team went into the jungle. High end. Six men plus a CIA liaison. Only one made it out. In his debrief, he said they came in contact with something. He gave a detailed description. The thing on the totem. It wore some kind of camouflage that adjusted to ambient light. Made it nearly invisible in our spectrum. It could see in infrared. Heat signatures. He used mud to block his. That's how he beat it. It hunted and killed his team, one by one.|
|Royce:||Whatever it is, wherever they're from, we're going to kill them all. We set up a defensive perimeter. Make it look like we are holing up. That'll bring them to us. We force them into a choke point. We get them in overlapping fields of fire. It can be done. I can't do it alone.|
