Hurt Locker, The
Delta Company. In the last scene of the movie James walked out of the plane taking him back to Iraq. He shook hands with one of the soldiers there, and the soldier said to him, "Welcome to Delta Company." He said thank you. The last image of the movie was James walking down a road with his bombsuit on, and the words: 'Days Left in Delta Company's Rotation: 365' displayed.
Jack-in-the-box. James had married his girlfriend after she got pregnant. He was playing with a Jack-in-the-box with his son at home. James said to his son that, being young, he liked a lot of things. He went on to say that when his son was older, he might realize the Jack-in-the-box was just metal. He continued, "The older you get the fewer things you really love. By the time you're my age you maybe like, one or two things." He admitted to his son that there was only one thing he truly loved.
A family man. When James came to the site the man was standing in an open area in the city. The man did not speak English, and an Arabic translator interpreted for the soldiers. Sanborn explained that the man walked up to their checkpoint, said he had a bomb strapped to his chest and started begging them to take it off of him. Their translator told James throughout the mission that the man had four children and a wife, and he just wanted help. Their translator also said that the bomb was forced on the man. James put on a bombsuit after the man opened his vest, revealing the bomb. James then pulled the gun on him and told the translator to tell the man to put his hands behind his back, which the man did, eventually. James attempted to take the bomb off the man, but was not successful, and before he left the man, he told him, "I'm sorry," which the man did not understand. Then James started to run back to the barriers set up and yelled, "Everybody get down!" The bomb exploded and the man was killed, but no one else was seriously hurt.
his leg. After a suicide bomb went off, the EOD team looked down at the damage and Sanborn said that they would never find a body in the wreckage. James suggested, "What if there was no body?" James went on to say that behind where they were standing was the perfect place to watch the bomb go off. He went on to say, "There are people laughing at this! And I'm not okay with that!" The three had turned and James had turned his flashlight on. Sanborn asked, "You want to go out there?" James replied, "Yes I do." After some objections the three went searching, and when Eldridge was being kidnapped James shot and killed his kidnappers. Eldridge was shot in the leg, and in one of the next scenes Eldridge was being airlifted out of Baghdad for medical treatment. Eldridge said that his femur was shattered and the doctor said he'd be fine in six months. Eldridge blamed James for his injury and sarcastically said, "Thanks for saving my life!" He kept rolling off expletives at James, but was good with Sanborn.
|James forced Beckham's partner to drive him to Beckham's house after James found what he thought was Beckham's body in a warehouse. He entered the house and talked to a man named Professor Nabil. Why did James leave?||You'll Know When You're In It: "The Hurt Locker"
A woman kicked him and forced him out. James was suspicious about Beckham's partner, and when he got into his car to leave where he was selling DVDs he pulled his gun on him, and told him to drive. The man drove James to what James thought was Beckham's house. James told the man, "Wait here." James got out and hopped the wall around the house, then the man drove off. He entered and found Professor Nabil in the kitchen. James had his gun pointed at Nabil and asked him, "Do you speak English?" Nabil replied, "English, French, Arabic. I am Professor Nabil, this is my home." Nabil tried to move forward at James, but James said sternly for him to stay where he was. James asked him, "Tell me what you know about Beckham." Nabil did not give him an answer, and mistook him for a CIA agent. Nabil asked, "You are CIA? I am very pleased to see CIA in my home. Please sit." James said, rather sadly, "I'm just looking for the people responsible, for Beckham." At that point, a woman entered, yelled in Arabic and kicked James. James then fled the house and went back to Camp Victory.
|While the EOD team raided a warehouse for bombs, James made a shocking discovery. James found the body of a boy who had been killed and surgically implanted with a bomb. James removed the bomb from what part of the boy's body?||You'll Know When You're In It: "The Hurt Locker"
his abdomen. James discovered the body of a boy who had been surgically implanted with a bomb in his abdomen, and was certain it was Beckham, although Eldridge and Sanborn weren't. He removed the bomb and carried the body outside to a group of Iraqis. He gave them the body and walked to their vehicle where Sanborn and Eldridge were. He got in, then a bomb exploded, killing Lieutenant Colonel John Cambridge, Camp Victory's head psychiatrist, who was talking to the Iraqis. Eldridge had a hard time dealing with it and tried to find Cambridge. James had to calm him down and explain that he was dead.
|While perched above a pit of gravel against enemy fire, Sanborn began to kill the enemies. During the skirmish, two members of the British company were shot; one in a tank, the other the team leader. After the team leader was killed, James yelled to Eldridge that they needed ammo. Where did Eldridge find their ammo?||You'll Know When You're In It: "The Hurt Locker"
On the British team leader. James yelled to Eldridge that they needed ammo and Eldridge started looking. When he asked where it was, James replied, "Check on the dead guy man!" He found it there and gave it to Sanborn, who equipped his gun and tried to fire. The gun did not fire, and he gave it back to Eldridge. James told him to "spit and rub" to get the blood off. Eventually it worked, and Sanborn was able to eliminate the last of the targets in the building. Eldridge then noticed a man crouched behind some railroad tracks. He asked James, "Should I fire?" James replied, "It's your call." Eldridge fired multiple times, and the man was killed.
|While the EOD team was driving back to camp after detonating bombs, they encountered a private British military company. They mistook them for insurgents, but realized they were friendly after the leader removed his mask and said they were on the same side. Why was the company there?||You'll Know When You're In It: "The Hurt Locker"
A flat tire. While the EOD team was driving back to camp they noticed the stranded company. Sanborn got out of the car and yelled to them to get down on their knees and put their hands up. The leader followed the commands after motioning to the others to do so. He kept his hands up as Sanborn removed the leader's gun. When the man asked if he could take his face-covering off Sanborn replied, "Slowly." The man took it off and said, "We're on the same side." The man explained that they had a flat tire, and the three began to assist them. One of the men from the unit was shot and killed, and everyone began to fire in that general direction. Eldridge asked, "What are we shooting at?" Sanborn replied, "I don't know!" The men then took up positions behind a large pile of gravel. James and Sanborn peeked out and Sanborn took a gun, waiting to fire. James took binoculars and they determined that the fire was coming from a building.
|After James found the bombs in a car at the UN Building, he began to study it. When he took his headset off because Sanborn kept asking him to leave the car, Eldridge communicated to him that Sanborn was asking if he would put it back on. What did James do next?||You'll Know When You're In It: "The Hurt Locker"
Made a gesture with one of his fingers. Sanborn was asking James to leave the car, because lots of people were watching them; one man was even holding a video camera and pointing it right at Eldridge. There were also three men watching them from a minaret, and plenty of people standing on the balcony of a nearby building. James took off his headset and threw it away from the car because of Sanborn's insistence that they leave. Sanborn started to talk through the headset, and Eldridge looked over at the car and noticed the headset. Eldridge told Sanborn that James took his headset off, and Sanborn asked Eldridge to ask James if he would put it back on. Eldridge then yelled to James, "Sergeant Sanborn is asking if you will please put your headset back on!" James then made a gesture with one of his fingers, and Eldridge said to Sanborn, "That's a negative, it's not gonna happen." Soon after, James successfully disabled the bomb, and the EOD team left.
the trunk. When the unit was called there an Iraqi guard said that there was a car parked illegally and the building was being evacuated. James went over to investigate, but a shot was fired from a distance at the car and it burst into flames. The blaze was put out with fire extinguishers, and James went to the car to investigate. After finding the many bombs he began to take off his bombsuit, and said to Eldridge, "If I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die confortable."
dvds. James met Beckham at the base, Camp Victory, where Beckham was selling DVDs to the soldiers, along with a much older partner. When James asked to see what he had, Beckham took a liking to him. Beckham presumably had been unsuccessful that day, as he kept rolling off expletives at the soldiers. Beckham swearing so much probably explained why Beckham liked James. Beckham said James wasn't like the other soldiers. James bought three DVDs for $15.00.
|Sergeant First Class William James took control of the EOD team after the death of Thompson. In their first mission together, James put on a bombsuit and started to walk down a road to a bomb. He was interrupted when a car sped down the road through the group he was in right at him. He pulled his pistol on the driver, and the driver stopped. What did James shoot first?||You'll Know When You're In It: "The Hurt Locker"
the road. After the car came speeding down he pulled his pistol on the driver. The driver stopped, and James asked him to back up. He then shot the road a total of four times, in two turns with two shots each. Then he shot the windshield, and approached the driver. James put the gun on the driver's forehead. The driver then started to back up into the group of soldiers, which included Eldridge and Sanborn. The driver was then forced out of the car onto the ground. Eldridge then said about the driver, "Well if he isn't an insurgent he sure is now." Sanborn then said sarcastically that that was real funny.
|After Thompson deployed the bomb defuser he started to walk back to Eldridge and Sanborn. Eldridge then noticed a man holding a phone in a shop and started running at him, yelling, "Put your phone down!" What kind of shop was the man standing in?||You'll Know When You're In It: "The Hurt Locker"
butcher shop. After Eldridge started running Thompson asked, through his radio connection, "Why is Eldridge running?" very nervously. Sanborn then joined Eldridge in running at the man. Before the two could get very close to him, the man pressed a button on his phone, and the bomb detonated. The bomb was shown exploding in slow-motion, and although Thompson was not engulfed by the smoke, he was knocked down and killed.
|In the first scene of "The Hurt Locker", Specialist Owen Eldridge, Sergeant JT Sanborn, and Staff Sergeant Matthew Thompson were defusing a bomb in Baghdad as part of an Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit in Bravo Company. Thompson put on a bombsuit and started to walk to the bomb. While he was walking, Eldridge asked Sanborn, "You know what this place needs?" Sanborn replied, "I'm listening." What did Eldridge say it needed?||You'll Know When You're In It: "The Hurt Locker"
grass. Eldridge's actual reply was, "It needs grass." Sanborn started laughing and asked, "We gonna start our own grass business?" Eldridge replied, "That's right. I'm gonna sell the grass, you're gonna cut it. We'll be rich."
Eldridge and Sanborn weren't being very serious in the conversation, and though Eldridge probably was serious about Baghdad needing grass (I agree), he did have his serious moments in the movie, particularly when talking to Lieutenant Colonel John Cambridge, the head psychiatrist at Camp Victory, about the death of Thompson. The conversation was a small bit of comedy in a war movie.
As a note for the rest of the quiz, the camp the main characters were stationed at was Camp Victory.
Chris Hedges. The quotation was, "The rush of battle is a potent and often lethal addiction, for war is a drug." The quote was the first image in the movie, and was on a black background. The rest of the text then faded out, leaving only "war is a drug" on the screen. The quote comes from Chris Hedges's non-fiction book "War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning". Chris Hedges used to be a war correspondent. The book was published in 2002.
|Who says, "You know these detonators misfire all the time," with the detonator in his hands as another teammate approaches an unexploded bomb to get his gloves? ||The Hurt Locker
Sergeant JT Sanborn. The three soldiers are shown testing bombs in the middle of the desert. Spc. Eldridge was about to detonate another bomb when Srg. James interrupts and tells them he forgot his gloves and needs to go and retrieve them. As Srg. James leaves to obtain his gloves down by the bomb area, Srg. Sanborn picks up the detonator, wanting to kill Srg. James and blame it on a supposed misfire.
|In the desert, the EOD team comes across a private military company. That team was stuck in the desert because they used up their... what?||The Hurt Locker
Wrench. The private team had a flat tire and asked for help. Srg. James asks if they have a spare. The team's leader says, "Well, we have spares, but we used up our wrench." Srg. James asks, "How do you use up a wrench?" The team leader responds, "Well, the uh, guy over there with the red thing on his head, he threw it at someone."
Specialist Owen Eldridge. Srg. James orders the EOD team to pursue three people responsible for a recent supposed "suicide" explosion. The three soldiers split up, and unfortunately, being dark outside, Eldridge, the youngest and less experienced soldier, is accidentally shot by Srg. James. Throughout the movie, Spc. Eldridge is constantly thinking about how Iraq can be deadly and that makes him scared. He is scared to die, and when he is shot (only in the leg), he panics. Thankfully, he lives.
|Who has a box under his bed full of stuff that almost killed him? ||The Hurt Locker
Sergeant William James. After completing a mission and they are back on base, Sanborn finds possessions under James's bed. They dig through his box and find components to bombs that Srg. James has disarmed. Srg. James reveals to his other teammates that he thinks it's interesting to hold something in his hands that almost killed him.
|According to Sanborn, why does he punch Sergeant James in the face after the call at the UN building?||The Hurt Locker
James took off his headset. While at the UN building, Srg. James listens to Srg. Sanborn and Spc. Elridge through a radio headset. Srg. Sanborn keeps telling Srg. James to hurry up and that they need to leave as soon as possible. Srg. James gets irritated and takes off his headset. Srg. Sanborn is mad because they are a team and should be working together. He punches Srg. James, and then warns him, "Never take off your headset."
|When Sergeant James enters his new team, what does Sanborn tell him the new camp's name is? ||The Hurt Locker
Victory. The EOD team needed a new team leader because the original leader of Srg. Sanborn's team was killed when a bomb exploded. Srg. James is to take his place as team leader. Srg. Sanborn meets Srg. James in his room, in which he was playing loud rock music, and welcomes him to Camp Victory. Srg. James asks, "I thought this was Camp Liberty?" Then Sanborn replies, "Oh, they changed that a week ago. Victory sounds better."
