Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Edit

"Right...what the hell kind of name is "Soap", eh? How'd a muppet like you pass selection?"
— Captain Price's first words to John "Soap" MacTavish.

"I was just a 'Leftenant' back then, doing some wet work. Chernobyl, Christmas for the bad guys. Even a decade later a lot of them still used it to get their hands on nuclear material. A lot of them, including one Imran Zakhaev. Of course we couldn't just let that happen, cash for spent fuel rods? That's one hell of a recipe for destruction. It was the first time our government authorized an assassination order since the second World War. I was under the command of Captain MacMillan." - Captain Price during the pre-mission cutscene to "All Ghillied Up"

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Edit

"Ghost, come in! This is Price! We're under attack by Shepherd's men in the boneyard! Soap, hold the left flank! Do not trust Shepherd! I say again, do not trust Shepherd! Soap, get down!"
— Price trying to warn Ghost and Roach about Shepherd's betrayal in Loose Ends.
"The healthy human mind doesn't wake up in the morning thinking this is its last day on Earth. But I think that's a luxury, not a curse. To know you're close to the end is a kind of freedom. Good time to take...inventory. [...] Out-gunned. Outnumbered. Out of our minds. On a suicide mission. But the sand and the rocks here, stained with thousands of years of warfare... They will remember us. For this. Because out of all our vast array of nightmares, this is the one we choose for ourselves. We go forward like a breath exhaled from the Earth. With vigor in our hearts and one goal in sight: We. Will. Kill him."
— Price's speech in the cutscene of Just Like Old Times.
"This is for the record. History is written by the victor. History is filled with liars. If he lives, and we die, his truth becomes written - and ours is lost. Shepherd will be a hero, 'cause all you need to change the world is one good lie and a river of blood. He's about to complete the greatest trick a liar ever played on history. His truth will be the truth. But only if he lives, and we die."
— Captain Price's speech in the intro to Endgame.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

"Your moves are miscalculated, and underestimating your enemies—your biggest mistake. You will find the will of a single man can be broken."
— Price, on the "Redemption" trailer for Modern Warfare 3.
"The life you knew before is gone. Today, we fight to bring it back."
— Price, in the launch trailer of Modern Warfare 3.
"Your world as you knew it is gone. How far would you go to bring it back? Shepherd created a war, but only we knew the truth."
— Price, in the MW3 Introduction
"They say truth is the first casualty of war. But who defines what's true? [...] Truth is just a matter of perspective. The duty of every soldier is to protect the innocent, and sometimes that means preserving the lie of good and evil—that war isn't just natural selection played out on a grand scale. [...] The only truth I found is that the world we live in is a giant tinderbox. All it someone to light the match."
— Price narrating, during the Turbulence mission pre-cutscene
"What you taught me to do: kill 'em all."
— Price speaking to MacMillan in the pre-cutscene in "Stronghold".
"There's a clocktower in Hereford where the names of the dead are inscribed. We try to honor their deeds, even as their faces fade from our memory. Those memories are all that's left, when the bastards have taken everything else."
— Price, referring to Soap, during the "Stronghold" pre-cutscene.
"There's a simplicity to war. Attacking is the only secret. Dare—and the world yields. How quickly they forget that all it takes to change the course of the will of a single man."
— Price, during the "Dust to Dust" mission pre-cutscene.
"My war ends with you"
— Price to Makarov in the Dust to Dust cutscene.
"This is it. Makarov doesn't leave here alive"
— In "Dust to Dust"
"This is for Soap."
— Captain Price during "Dust to Dust".

Call of Duty OnlineEdit

"We fight not so that the world will remember us, but so that there will be a world to remember."
— Price in the first trailer.
"War used to be simple. Kill or be killed. Survive at all costs. Then everything changed. The action got faster, the weapons got more powerful, the stakes got bigger than anything we'd ever seen. On the eve of our greatest battle, a new hero must rise."
— Price in the second trailer.
"Ortiz says he's got a couple of guys on the inside that can get us intel on the cartel's operations. This is a simple pick-up, but stay frosty."
— Price in the fifth trailer.
"I know you saw action with the 1138, but the 141, this is the premier league."
— Price to the playable character in the fifth trailer.
"Rook, follow for Ortiz. Ghost will intercept. But remember, we need Ortiz alive."
— Price to the playable character in the fifth trailer.
