Glover predator 2 quote“This is what I call the speech, kid.  It’s the only one I’ve got, I only give it once, so pay attention.  Until now, it’s all been fun and games, cops and robbers, Dunkin’ Donuts, but you’re in the shit now.  Metro Command is a war zone…  They say you’re good at what you do, but the team comes first.  You live by that, and you’ll be okay, and we’ll all be there for you.  Remember, the door swings both ways.  That’s it.  Hey kid, welcome to the war.”

Movie Trivia:

Bill Paxton, who played Jerry Lambert, faced both predators in Predator 2 (1990) and aliens in Aliens (1986), before they faced each other in AVP: Alien vs Predator (2004) and AVPR: Aliens vs Predator – Requiem (2007).  It is said he was approached for AVPR so he could be in the second movie of all three series, but scheduling conflicts prevented him from making an appearance.
