Quotes from

Zachary Teller: You're sweating! Thinking of the dead men's money is making you sweat! I blame myself. It's my fault for you being like this. Somewhere I must have done something wrong for you to be like this.
Christopher 'Chris' Teller: You're not going to take me up there?

Christopher 'Chris' Teller: [Agrily] I'd do more than that to get out of here!

Father Belacchi: They're getting up a rescue party to climb the mountain.
Zachary Teller: Why, if everybody's dead?

In the Italian dubbing, the "new silk rope" becomes a "new nylon rope"; this is due to the popularity of nylon ropes then in Italy, as they had been used in the recent 1954 Italian expedition to K2, which received lots of media attention in Italy at the time.
