Survivors of a plane crash in the Mongolian desert work together to build a new plane.

Sammi: I thought you weren't religious, Rady?
Rady: Spirituality is not religion. Religion divides people. Belief in something unites them.
Frank Towns: Why give people false hope?
Liddle: Come on man.Most people spend their whole lives hanging on to hopes and dreams that are never going to come true but they hold on to them. Why are you going to give up on them now when you need them most?
Frank Towns: You are assuming I'm one of those people who has hopes and dreams.
Liddle: I find it hard to believe that a man who learns to fly never had a dream.
Frank Towns: Look, how can I let those people build that plane when I don't believe it will work? And, every day they waste trying to build it brings them one day closer to dying.
Liddle: I think a man only needs one thing in life. He just needs someone to love. If you can't give him that, then give him something to hope for. And if you can't give him that, just give him something to do.
[James tosses the water bottle back to Frank and walks away]
Frank Towns: James, you'll never make it.
Liddle: Then I'll die trying. There are people counting on me.
Frank Towns: Okay, Okay, Okay. Okay. We'll build it. Just come back with me.
Rady: Let me tell you a story. A rabbi and a priest attend a boxing match. They watch as the boxers come into the ring. The rabbi sees one of the boxers cross himself. So the rabbi turns to the priest and asks, "What does that mean?" The priest says, "Not a damn thing if the man can't fight."
A.J.: What you doin?
Ian: [Fiddling with a PDA] Oh, just sending an email to a friend.
A.J.: Oh, really?
[Ian smiles at A.J]
A.J.: You're a funny fucker.
A.J.: Listen up. We got a major problem. Looks like we have to make an emergency landing. Make sure you're strapped in, and if you believe in God, it's time to call in a favor.
[preparing for takeoff]
A.J.: [as Bill Cosby] OK, all set, Mr. President. I think it's about that time that we do the checklist as the two Bills. What do you say, buddy?
Frank Towns: [as Bill Clinton] Why change a good thing? Go ahead, good buddy.
A.J.: Allow me to grab my bulletin. Seatbelts.
Frank Towns: I always like to have a little something strapped to my lap. Check.
A.J.: Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! Windows, doors and hatches.
Frank Towns: Closed and secure, so no-one can disturb us.
A.J.: Water injection.
Frank Towns: That's what she said.
[A.J. laughs]
Frank Towns: Check.
A.J.: Gyro.
Frank Towns: Set and uncaged, just like yours truly.
A.J.: And last but not least, cowl flaps.
Frank Towns: Till the cows come home... Alright, I think we're ready to go. Gonna kiss your lucky man?
A.J.: I'll make it happen right now.
Frank Towns: All right. Clear left.
A.J.: Clear right.
Frank Towns: All right... here we go...
[after having shot a wounded nomad who the group is debating whether to help]
Elliott: Well, that settles that.
Elliott: [to Towns, about the makeshift plane] The design is perfect, the only flaw is that we have to rely on you to fly it.
Sammi: I thought you weren't religious, Rady.
Rady: Spirituality is not religion. Religion divides people. Believe in something you must.
Davis: [while urinating, laughs] Maybe I should save this.
