    Listen Jerry, I will move mountains to get you out here.

    Watching a movie and one character says there's an emergency and he will move mountains to get the other person to where he is.

    "Listen Jerry, I will move mountains to get you out here."

    Shouldn't it be I would move mountains?

    Not if it's the character's intention to succeed in getting Jerry to where he is.

    Re: Listen Jerry, I will move mountains to get you out here.

    "I would move mountains ..." = I'm prepared to do this/I'm willing to do this
    "I will move mountains ..." = I am actually going to do whatever it takes for this to happen
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
