[with strong French accent]
You, you come with me to pick up Peter.
No, you you come with me to pick up MacIntosh!
No no no no, you you you! and if you don’t come I… oh merde alors comment on dit ça…
Comment ça ”merde alors”? but alors you are French!
Andrew ‘Smokey’ Salem:
When you get upset, when you get mad, you turn red, right? When you get envoius, or sick, you turn green. When you become cowardly, you turn yellow; and ya’ll got the nerve to call us colored?
You look frightened. There’s a large number of lonely men out there.
Don’t worry, I won’t let them rape you.
Ideals are peaceful. History is violent.
No matter where you are in the world,the moon is never bigger than your thumb.
I’ll tell you a secret. Something they don’t teach you in your temple. The Gods envy us. They envy us because we’re mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.
I work at the Pentagon, Sergeant, so I’ll admit I’m a little slow on the uptake, otherwise I’d say that you just threatened me. Did you just threaten me, soldier? Because if you did, let me respond to you…
[turns off tape recorder]
Let me respond to you this way. I’m an officer, and therefore, by proclamation, a gentleman, but don’t abuse that, son. Don’t get in my crosshairs, because I’ll have no compunction whatsoever about getting up to my neck in yo’ ass. Do you understand me?
I did not start this war. I offered you peace. I showed you mercy. But now you’re here. To finish us off… for good.
