This page is a list of memorable quotes from Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.
Sir Francis Drake: "There must be a beginning of any great matter, but the continuing unto the end until it be thoroughly finished yields the true glory" - Sir Francis Drake, 1587
Elena Fisher: Are you sure you wanna be defiling your ancestor's remains like that?
Nathan Drake: You make it sound so dirty! (Chuckles) Besides, I thought you didn't believe me.
Elena Fisher: Well, I did do my research and apparently Francis Drake didn't have any children.
Nathan Drake: Well, the history can be wrong, you know. For example, you can't defile an empty coffin.
Elena Fisher: What is it? C'mon, hold it up -.
Nathan Drake: No, no, no - no way. The deal was for coffin. That's it.
Elena Fisher: Wait a minute, if my show hadn't funded this expedition you wouldn't have...
Nathan Drake: Hey, hey... You got your story, lady.
Elena Fisher: Okay, okay, what's going on?
Nathan Drake: Uh.. Pirates.
Elena Fisher: Pirates?!
Nathan Drake: Yeah, the modern kind. They don't take prisoners. ...at least not male prisoners.
Elena Fisher: Wait, what are you talking about? Uh, sh- shouldn't we call the authorities or something?
Nathan Drake: That'd be a great idea, but we don't exactly have a permit to be here.
Elena Fisher: What?
Nathan Drake: Yeah, so unless you wanna end up in a Panamanian jail we should probably handle this ourselves.
Elena Fisher: Wh- What's worse?
Nathan Drake: You obviously haven't been in Panamanian jail.
Victor Sullivan: (laughs) I can't leave you alone for a minute can I?
Nathan Drake: Well, I had everything under control until they blew up the boat.
Victor Sullivan: Nate, let's just pretend that I don't really care about any of that and cut to the chase will ya?
Nathan Drake: Man only interested in the climax. Must be a real hit with the ladies.
Victor Sullivan: Never had any complaints.
Victor Sullivan: El goddamn Dorado.
Nathan Drake: Your a real gentleman, Sully
Victor Sullivan: Yeah, it stinks. She'll get over it.
Victor Sullivan: Man, this is like trying to find a bride in a brothel.
Victor Sullivan: That reporter? I saw the way you were eyein' her..
Nathan Drake: Elena? Please...I snuffed any chance with her the second we ditched her on that dock.
Victor Sullivan: All's fair in love and war, kid.
Nathan Drake: Yeah... and what if you can't tell the difference?
Victor Sullivan: Then, my friend, you are in a big trouble.
Victor Sullivan : Something about this feels kinda hinky.
Nathan Drake : Hinky? You act as if you've never seen a German U-boat in the middle of the jungle before.
Victor Sullivan : I'm being serious Nate.
Nathan Drake : (laughs) Tell you what, why don't you stay here, i'll check it out myself and i'll call you if I run into any Nazis.
Nathan Drake: Somethin nasty happened to these guys. There's blood everywhere... and soup.
Victor Sullivan: What?
Nathan Drake : I think the trail just got warm again.
Victor Sullivan : How so?
Nathan Drake : Well, I just met a guy with pockets full of Spanish gold, but the coins are stampted with a mint mark i've never seen before.
Victor Sullivan : Really?
Nathan Drake : Looks like our German friends had a secret.
Nathan Drake : I'm in the Captain's quarters and get this: He's still here.
Victor Sullivan : What's that supposed to mean?
Nathan Drake : Looks like he was killed, ripped to shreds actually. What a way to go.
Victor Sullivan : Sounds terrible, check his wallet.
Nathan Drake : You're all heart Sully.
Nathan Drake: We gotta bail out!
Elena Fisher: Bail out!? Does this thing even have parachutes?
Nathan Drake: Now would be a good time to look!
Nathan Drake: Yeah. You just count to five and pull the cord. How hard could that be?
[looks out plane door]
Nathan Drake Oh crap.
[jumps off and pulls parachute cord]
Nathan Drake AHHHHHH! Onetwothreefourfive!
Nathan Drake: Oh, strangers trying to kill me. Left my map on a burning plane. Elena's missing, most likely dead. That's great. Great start Nate.
Nathan Drake: Here they come!
Nathan Drake: Ah, man. Doesn't look good. (Seeing the remains of their crashed plane)
Nathan Drake: Better watch where I'm going.
Pirate: Flush him out!
Pirate: He's trapped!
Pirate: It's over, bule!
Pirate: We've got him!
Pirate: Right between the eyes, bule!
Pirate: Shoot to kill!
Pirate: I'm going for him
Pirate: Lights out, Drake! (If Drake is killed)
Nathan Drake: Oh, you have got to be kidding me. (Seeing the walls of the fortress that he has to climb)
Nathan Drake: Oh, you can't be serious. Wasn't I just out here?
Nathan Drake: I've just about had it with these guys!
Nathan Drake: This place could use a good plumber.
Nathan Drake: Son of a bitch! Where'd they all come come from?
Nathan Drake: This must've been Drake's. So what were you looking for, huh? Hmm, now that looks familiar. Huh, the ships never left. Elena, where did she come from-
Pirate: Hey, there she is! Watch this. (An explosion rocks the balcony Drake's on. He awakes in a cell inside the fortress)
Elena Fisher: I know I'm not a big time treasure hunter like you, but I doubt you're gonna find El Dorado in there. How'd you get yourself in this mess?
Nathan Drake: Trying to rescue you as a matter of fact.
Elena Fisher: Ah, that's so sweet. Traditional sandstone, stucco, limestone mortar, huh.
Nathan Drake: How'd you get to know so much about this?
Elena Fisher: My show. Episode Four. Architects of the New World. Yep, it'll just take a tug to pull these bars out.
Nathan Drake: Wait? No, are you sure?
Eddy Raja: Get out of my way bohodo!
Eddy Raja: Cepatan, open this goddamn door!
Nathan Drake: Oh crap.
Elena Fisher: Oh my god, you're bleeding!
Nathan Drake: Yeah, it comes with the territory.
Eddy Raja: Going somewhere?
Eddy Raja: Did you really think you could escape from moi?
Nathan Drake: Oh, no, Just giving the lady the ten dollar tour.
Elena Fisher: Dammit! This guy's Crazy!! [After Eddy shoots the car with a shotgun]
Nathan Drake: Eddy, take it easy buddy!
Elena Fisher: (seeing Drake's Ring) That someone special?
Nathan Drake: What? Oh, yeah. I guess you could say that.
Elena Fisher: Huh. I had you pegged as more of a "woman in every port" kinda guy.
Nathan Drake: (laughs) Don't I wish, no this was Francis Drake's ring. I kinda, y'know inherited it.
Nathan Drake: "Greatness from small beginnings" it was his motto. Check out the date.
Elena Fisher: "29th of January 1596"
Nathan Drake: One day after he supposedly died.
Elena Fisher: Wait, what are these numbers right here?
Nathan Drake: Coordinates. Right off the coast of Panama.
Elena Fisher: Ah, so that's how you found the coffin.
Nathan Drake: Yeah, that's right. You see Drake left this behind as a clue to pinpoint the exact burial sight.
Elena Fisher: For someone clever enough to figure it out.
Nathan Drake: Yeah, nice try. But we're still going for that boat.
Mercenary: They've got the old man working on the east side of the complex.
Mercenary: I don't even know why they brought him along! That sonofabitch can't be trusted.
Elena Fisher: Nate, please be careful...
Nathan Drake: [chuckles] C'mon, I always am.
[hits head on low ceiling]
Nathan Drake OWWW! I did NOT see that!
Gabriel Roman: This is completely unacceptable.
Eddy Raja: Well, what do you expect from me Roman? My men are getting massacred!
Gabriel Roman: I find it hard to believe that one man could wipe out your entire crew.
Eddy Raja: It's not just Drake, goddammit! I'm telling you, this island is cursed!
Gabriel Roman: Enough. Take your sorry mob and go!
Eddy Raja: Wait, you can't cut me loose! You owe me a share of the gold!
Gabriel Roman: Your share, Eddy, was contingent on doing what I required. You assured me that Drake was captured, and the island secure.
Eddy Raja: Oh, this is bullshit Roman! And you know it!
Gabriel Roman: We're done here Mr. Raja.
Eddy Raja: Tai kamu! Mati aja lo! Cialan!
Gabriel Roman: Remind me again why you employed that superstitious idiot!
Atoq Navarro: You wanted someone cheap.
Gabriel Roman: Well, you get what you pay for I suppose. And what about you, Navarro? Are you worth what I'm paying you?
Atoq Navarro: The vault's here. I'm sure of it. If Sullivan can be trusted...
Gabriel Roman: Which he can't!
Atoq Navarro: Look, he knows we'll kill him if he's lying.
Gabriel Roman: Don't be stupid. He knows we'll kill him once we find the treasure. He has no incentive to tell the truth. Really, Navarro, sometimes I think you left your brains back in that slum where I found you.
Atoq Navarro: I just need a little more time.
Gabriel Roman: Chasing this treasure of yours is proving to be more trouble than it's probably worth.
Atoq Navarro: I assure you, El Dorado is worth more than you can possibly imagine.
Gabriel Roman: It had better be...
Nathan Drake: Well there's no way but forward.
Nathan Drake:[After seeing the descendant running] What was that?
Nathan Drake: [After seeing the descendant jumping] What the hell?
Eddy Raja: Hey! Bule. Last man alive gets the gold... You lose!
Eddy Raja: Kill them both!
Nathan Drake: Hope this leads somewhere.
Elena Fisher: There nothing here.
Nathan Drake: This is getting so old.
Nathan Drake: Hello boys... Easy Eddy. Easy. What the hell's going out there? [after hearing a strange roar]
Eddy Raja: Didn't you see them?
Pirate: Oh no... Oh god no...
Eddy Raja: We're trapped!
Nathan Drake: Jesus, what is that?
Eddy Raja: We're dead! We're all dead!
Pirate: - Aaaaaggh!!
Eddy Raja: - No!
Nathan Drake: Eddy, get back here. (Seeing the descendant jump out of the hole) Oh crap...
Eddy Raja: Drake, if we don't make it out of here, I just want you to know: I hate your guts.
Nathan Drake:Yeah, likewise pal. Now let's do this!
Elena Fisher: What the hell is going on down there?
Nathan Drake: Just get that rope down here! Fast!
Elena Fisher: Damn! It's totally rusted - it won't move!
Eddy Raja: You want some of this?
Nathan Drake: Elena?!
Elena Fisher: It's stuck!
Eddy Raja: That's right you, ugly konyok! Don't mess with Eddy Raja!
[Eddy is grabbed and almost pulled into a hole by a descendant]
Nathan Drake: Eddy! Eddy! Hold on!
Eddy Raja: [screams]. [after being bitten on the neck]
Nathan Drake: Oh, you have got to be kidding me... Elena, hurry up! [after the room swarms with descendants]
Nathan Drake: Go! Go! Run!
Elena Fisher: (upon finding the elevator) I bet we could use this to get to the surface. Damn it!
Nathan Drake: I guess the Nazis didn't pay their electric bill.
Nathan Drake: (sees blood everywhere) What the hell happened here?
Nathan Drake: (descendant comes out from behind the wall) Oh shit!
Nathan Drake: Oh no [after seeing the door open in the generator room].
Nathan Drake: This is turning out to be a really lousy day.
Nathan Drake: Oh, no. Not again!
Gabriel Roman: Can you hear me in there?
Nathan Drake: Loud and clear, jackass.
Gabriel Roman: Oh, no microphone on your end? What a shame.
Elena Fisher: Nate! Get outta there before-
Nathan Drake: Elena! Leave her alone, you sons of-
Gabriel Roman: Navarro, if you can't maintain control over a small girl...
Atoq Navarro: It won't happen again. Trust me.
Gabriel Roman: I'm sorry for the interruption. I just wanted to uh, thank you for leading us to El Dorado.
Nathan Drake: Of course.
Gabriel Roman: Oh, I hope you don't mind if we borrow Miss Fisher a little while longer. Just to discourage you and your partner from trying anything creative. So long, Nate. It's been fun.
Nathan Drake: Yeah... keep smilin', asshole. I'll see you soon. Whoa... Oh hell.. that can't be good.
Mercenary: Help Me!
Mercenary: What are these things?
Mercenary: Get away!
Gabriel Roman: [Laughs].You two should realize by now that I plan for every contingency. Now drop your weapons. Down there. No heroics please, or I will kill her. Good, now, if you'll just hang tight, we'll be with you in a moment. It's magnificent. The craftsmanship, I've never seen anything like it before.
Atoq Navarro: That is only a shell. The real treasure of El Dorado lies inside, [laughs]. Open it!
Nathan Drake: My God.
Gabriel Roman: [coughs].
Atoq Navarro: Watch this.
Gabriel Roman: Navarro....[growls]
[Navarro shoots him in the head]
Atoq Navarro: Adios, jefe. So little imagination. [laughs]. Bajen la red!
Mercenary: Bajen la red.
Nathan Drake: Navarro, that thing wiped out an entire colony. You don't know what you're doing!
Atoq Navarro: Wrong! I'm the only person on this Island who knows what the hell he's doing! Cargue la estatua. Cuidado!
Atoq Navarro: Matenlo. Kill him!
Nathan Drake: [while chasing Navarro] Nowhere to hide now...
Nathan Drake: [to Navarro] Adios, asshole.
Victor Sullivan: You two got a funny idea of romantic!
Nathan Drake: Sully! Wow, you look like hell!
Victor Sullivan: You should see the other guys!
Elena Fisher: [laughs]
Victor Sullivan: Got us a boat
Elena Fisher: Uh, we already have a boat.
Nathan Drake: Yeah, big boat.
Victor Sullivan: I like this one better.
(Victor show some treasures on the boat)
Elena Fisher: (gasps)
Victor Sullivan: (laughs)
Nathan Drake: Sully, you beautiful son of a bitch!
Victor Sullivan: Borrowed it off a couple of pirates who were too dead to care.
Nathan Drake: [to Elena] Sorry, you didn't get your story.
Elena Fisher: Ah, that's all right. There'll be others stories. You still owe me one.
Nathan Drake: I'm good for it.
Repeated Lines and Misc
Nathan Drake: [after kicking a pirate] I'll kick you to sleep!
Nathan Drake: [repeated line] Oh crap.
Nathan Drake: [after kicking an enemy in the groin] No children for you!
Nathan Drake: Aaaaaggh! [after being pounced on by a descendant].
