War Dogs movie quotes provide the dialogue for the comedy-drama film based on a true story of two young arms dealers in Afghanistan. Todd Phillips directed the film using a screenplay he, Stephen Chin and Jason Smilovic adapted from the book Arms and the Dudes by  Guy Lawson. War Dogs opened in theaters on August 19, 2016.

In War Dogs, David Packouz (Miles Teller) learns that he's expecting a baby with girlfriend Iz (Ana de Armas). David knows he needs to support them so he hooks up with junior high friend Efraim Diveroli (Jonah Hill) who thinks they can make a bunch of money as international arms dealers. 

One $300 million US government contract later, David and Efraim find themselves in business with some increasingly shady people (including Bradley Cooper) and driving arms through what's called the Triangle of Death in Baghdad. And while the rewards of the job are great, the trouble the men face, including from terrorists with assault weapons and that pesky FBI, the risks they have to take might just be greater.

When you're done checking out these War Dogs movie quotes, read more from other great summer 2016 movies such as Kubo and the Two Strings, Sausage Party, Hell or High Water, and Florence Foster Jenkins.

    Bottom Feeders Who Make Money Off of War

    David Packouz: They called guys like us war dogs, bottom feeders who make money off of war without ever stepping foot on the battlefield. It was meant to be derogatory, but we kind of liked it.

    David talks about how folks like him got the name war dogs. They're profiting off of the war, which some see as wrong, but they, obviously, enjoy the money.

    50% We Live, 50% We Die

    Video: YouTube

    David Packouz: Is this safe, driving to Baghdad?
    Marlboro: Very safe, 50/50
    David Packouz: What, like 50% we live, 50% we die?
    Marlboro: Yes, this is why we drive through the night. It is quite safer. 
    David Packouz: How much safer?
    Marlboro: 50/50

    When Marlboro explains to the guys that their safety is 50/50, David is surprised that they are taking such a risk. According to Marlboro, the 50/50 is the safer side of traveling in the hostile area.

    I Have to Go First, I'm American

    Video: YouTube

    Efraim Diveroli: Sorry, don't worry, I have to go first, I'm American.

    Making his way through a Middle East airport, Efraim gives an especially stereotypical response to those in line in front of him. Claiming Americanness to get through a wrong line might be one of the funniest and most cringeworthy War Dogs movie quotes.

    Video: YouTube

    Iz: You told me you guys were selling bedsheets. 
    David Packouz: I also told you that we were selling other stuff too.
    Iz: I thought you meant pillows!

    David and Iz argue about David's profession in this War Dogs movie quote. She thought he was selling linens, and other things like pillows, not linens and other things like assault weapons.
