quote:I want to ask you something. You all go to church.
Do you think God knew what He was doing when He created woman?
No ****! I really want to know.
Or do you think it was one of His minor mistakes? Like tidal waves! Earthquakes! Floods!
Do you think women are like that?
What's the matter? You don't think God makes mistakes? Of course He does. We all make mistakes. Of course, when we make mistakes, they call it evil. When God makes mistakes, they call it...nature.
So what do you think?
Women: Are they a mistake? Or did He do it to us on purpose?!
I really want to know!
If it's a mistake, maybe we can do something about it! Find a cure; invent a vaccine; build up our immune systems. Get a little exercise. Twenty push-ups a day...and you never have to be afflicted with women, ever again!
-- Jack Nicholson as Daryl Van Horne, The Witches of Eastwick
"Saigon, ****. I'm still only in Saigon. Every time I think I'm going to wake up back in the jungle. When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing... I hardly said a word to my wife until I said yes to a divorce. When I was here I wanted to be there. When I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle. I've been here a week now. Waiting for a mission, getting softer. Every minute I stay in this room I get weaker. And every minute Charlie squats in the bush he gets stronger. Each time I look around the walls move in a little tighter."
Also I feel that way sometimes.

Thank you, Robert. All I know about that movie is "I love the smell of napalm in the morning." (or some such) and that it's supposed to be some kind of reinterpretation of Conrad's HEART OF DARKNESS.

John T. Chance: You're not as smart as your brother, Joe. He sees Stumpy here sittin' around the corner locked in with you... and if that isn't plain enough, I'll tell you why. If any trouble starts around this jail, before anybody can get to you you're gonna get accidentally shot.
Do you mean to tell me, Katie Scarlett O'Hara, that Tara, that land doesn't mean anything to you? Why, land is the only thing in the world worth workin' for, worth fightin' for, worth dyin' for, because it's the only thing that lasts.

Pssst. It's Buliwyf--you spelled it phonetically. Buliwyf is a spin on Beowulf, whose story was blended with that of Ahmad ibn Fadlān ibn al-Abbās ibn Rašīd ibn Hammād. Interesting how combining two epic stories, Michael Crichton got Eaters of the Dead, neh?
