NASA – Speech


Armageddon (1998)   After discovering that an asteroid the size of Texas is going to impact Earth in less than a month, N.A.S.A. recruits a misfit team of deep core drillers to save the planet.

Nice little speech by Bruce Willis who plays Harry Stamper and his belief in the abilities of N.A.S.A.

Harry Stamper: What’s your contingency plan?

Truman: Contingency plan?

Harry Stamper: Your backup plan. You gotta have some kind of backup plan, right?

Truman: No, we don’t have a back up plan. This is it.

Harry Stamper: And this is the best that you c – that the-the government, the *U.S. government* can come up with? I mean, you-you’re NASA for cryin’ out loud, you put a man on the moon, you’re geniuses! You-you’re the guys that think this shit up! I’m sure you got a team of men sitting around somewhere right now just thinking shit up and somebody backing them up! You’re telling me you don’t have a backup plan, that these eight boy scouts right here, that is the world’s hope, that’s what you’re telling me?

Truman: Yeah.

  1. Actually, you could just substitute the name of any government agency, say the Federal Reserve.

Witty observation, disparaging remark, question for A.A., well this is your chance.
