Trivia Edit

  • His battle cry of "Oo-Rah" is the battle cry of the United States Marine Corps.
  • He came back to rescue the survivors because he's a U.S. Marine, trained to protect defenseless civilians, and to never leave anybody behind. Another reason because he feels responsible for endangering the crew and the kids because he pick the place to shoot the game show and he didn't check to see if the area was safe. He wanted to set things right.
  • Dale Murphy has killed more mutants in this film than any other survivors, eliminating three of the mutant family by himself.
