1. “I hit them more in the center.” -Peacemaker

Several of the best The Suicide Squad quotes come from Peacemaker and Bloodsport bickering.

After meeting Peacemaker, Bloodsport is confused as to why he’s part of the Suicide Squad since they have similar abilities. Peacemaker brags that he’s better and hits his targets “more in the center.” It’s a bit strange to brag about being a serial killer.

The duo start arguing and Bloodsport says that’s impossible. Peacemaker proudly replies, “I use smaller bullets. They go inside your bullet holes without even touching the side.”

Right away, fans receive the first of many hilarious Peacemaker quotes!

2. “I’m an assassin! Why would I share my liabilities?” -Bloodsport

(L-r) IDRIS ELBA as Bloodsport, STEVE AGEE as John Economos and VIOLA DAVIS as Amanda Waller in Warner Bros. Pictures’ action adventure “THE SUICIDE SQUAD,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

Bloodsport is a smart guy in charge of The Suicide Squad, and one of the members is Ratcatcher 2. The only problem is that Bloodsport has a rat phobia!

When Amanda Waller asks why he didn’t mention this fear earlier he explains, “I’m an assassin! Why would I share my liabilities?” He then promptly shrieks at one of Ratcatcher 2’s rats.

3. “I cherish peace with all my heart. I don’t care how many men, women, and children I need to kill to get it.” -Peacemaker

This dark and funny line is one of the many reasons audiences love The Suicide Squad. Peacemaker is so determined to make peace, that he is willing to kill and cause destruction to get it!

While this line initially seems like just a funny look into Peacemaker’s mind, it is also foreshadowing his behavior.

4. “I don’t like to kill people, but if I pretend they’re my mom it’s easy.” -Polka-Dot Man

“THE SUICIDE SQUAD,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

Polka-Dot Man is a mysterious character. One of the first times he opens up in the film is when he shares that he doesn’t like killing people, not even bad people. However, it’s easy when he pretends they’re his mother every single time.

Bloodsport replies, “T.M.I. mate” and audiences can’t help but agree. Polka-Dot Man is a nice guy deep down, but he clearly has lots of issues with his mother that make him dangerous.

This dark quote and funny delivery make Polka-Dot Man a fan favorite!

5. “Recently I made a promise to myself that the next time I got a boyfriend I’d be on the lookout for red flags and if I saw any I would do the healthy thing, and I would murder him.” -Harley Quinn

MARGOT ROBBIE as Harley Quinn in Warner Bros. Pictures’ superhero action adventure “THE SUICIDE SQUAD,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

Since her breakup with Joker, Harley Quinn is looking out for herself. After a brief date night and romance with Silvio Luna, the Corto Maltese dictator, Harley shoots and kills him.

She explains that him killing kids is, “Kind of a red flag.” Harley also adds, “When your taste in men is as bad as mine, they don’t just go away quietly.”

The Suicide Squad shows fans a more grown-up side to Harley Quinn. She’s still the classic, chaotic Harley, but she is also taking care of herself and we are so happy for her!

This is one of our favorite Harley Quinn quotes.

6. “It’s not a toilet seat, it’s a beacon of freedom.” -Peacemaker

Peacemaker gives fans one of the most simple and hilarious The Suicide Squad quotes. After Bloodsport makes fun of his helmet and calls it a toilet seat, Peacemaker gets defensive. The only thing he loves more than peace is his helmet.

Proudly, he declares, “It’s not a toilet seat, it’s a beacon of freedom.” This hilarious line is one of our favorite Suicide Squad quotes.

7. “As imperfect [as] my father was, he loved me. I wish I could give that to you.” -Ratcatcher 2

Ratcatcher 2 and Bloodsport bond while talking about their complicated relationships with their fathers. In one of the film’s sweeter moments, Ratcatcher 2 extends a bit of her heart to Bloodsport.

In spite of her difficult relationship with her father, she still knew he loved her. It pains her that Bloodsport did not experience that same love from his own father, so she wants to give it to him.

8. “Well, I can go back inside and you can still do it!” -Harley Quinn

The Suicide Squad
“THE SUICIDE SQUAD,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

Harley Quinn demonstrates her impressive abilities and escapes from the Corto Maltese government all by herself. After her escape, she runs into Colonel Rick Flagg and Bloodsport just as they begin enacting their plan to rescue her.

Touched by how thoughtful they are, she offers to go back inside so they can still do their plan. She may not be great at the whole team motivation thing but the good thing is that she tries her best.

9. “Peacemaker. What a joke.” -Colonel Rick Flag

After learning that America is responsible for Project Starfish, Colonel Rick Flag wants to tell the public. Unfortunately, Amanda Waller tasked Peacemaker with ensuring a cover up so the information never gets out.

Acting in his own self-interest Peacemaker fights Flag.

After a battle between Peacemaker and Flag, the Colonel is defeated. Dying, he scoffs at Peacemaker’s actions and highlights that his name doesn’t fit him.

Rick Flag is the gold standard of a hero. Even if his life is gonna end he wants to tell Peacemaker what he thinks of him.

10. “Aw fizzle-sticks, hold on.”-Polka-Dot Man

When Polka-Dot Man’s bag rips and his explosives fall on the floor, he exclaims “Aw fizzle-sticks.” Considering how many characters in The Suicide Squad actually swear, this line is a delightful surprise.

The family-friendly line emphasizes Polka-Dot Man’s innocence, and shows that in many ways he is just a boy.

11.” I know what I’m carrying the javelin for!” -Harley Quinn

The Suicide Squad
(L-r) MARGOT ROBBIE as Harley Quinn, DANIELA MELCHIOR as Ratcatcher 2, IDRIS ELBA as Bloodsport, KING SHARK and DAVID DASTMALCHIAN as Polka Dot Man in Warner Bros. Pictures’ action adventure “THE SUICIDE SQUAD,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

Harley Quinn, formerly Dr. Harleen Quinzel, may not be the intelligent Dr. Quinzel anymore, but she’s not stupid. That being said, her intelligence may take some time to shine. With his dying breath, Javelin gives Harley Quinn his javelin and tells her to “Carry it for…” Unsure why he wanted her to carry it, Harley keeps the javelin with her throughout the film.

While fighting Starro, Harley has the idea to hurl herself at the giant starfish and stab it with the javelin. Finally having a use for the weapon, she excitedly shouts, ” I know what I’m carrying the javelin for!” Her efforts through this whole thing finally pay off.

12. “Monster nom nom?” -King Shark

King Shark
“THE SUICIDE SQUAD,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

One running joke throughout The Suicide Squad is that King Shark wants to eat everyone. The team continuously has to tell him who he can and cannot eat. The only way he gets to eat people is if they are the team’s enemies.

The worst part of the mission for King Shark is not being able to snack on everyone he sees.

While directing his teammates on how to fight Starro, Bloodsport finally gives King Share the OK to eat. Bloodsport tells him, “Monster nom nom” and King Shark repeats him in disbelief. King Shark smashes lots of bad guys and finally earns a good snack.

13. “Rats are the lowliest and most despised creatures of all, my love. If they have purpose, so do we all.” -Ratcatcher 1

While Ratcatcher 2 is using her rats to fight Starro, she has a flashback to a conversation with her father, Ratcatcher 1. As a girl, she asked him why he was so connected to rats.

Ratcatcher 1 shares a surprisingly hopeful message with his daughter, “If they have purpose, so do we all.”

14. “I could be your friend, Milton.” -Harley Quinn

Harley Quinn has the best intentions, but still sometimes misses the mark. While offering her friendship to Bloodsport, she calls him the wrong name.

They recently had a conversation about the real Milton, but Harley did not remember who that was. She may struggle keeping track of the Suicide Squad members but she is still willing to support them no matter what! The team has become a big happy family.
