AMDB Memorable Quotes:
Sgt. Chance Lubbock: Leave it to a gook to attack a man while he's sleeping.
Cpl. Lu Nguyen: I no gook, Sergeant! I love freedom!
Sgt. Chance Lubbock: Well, I reckon if they can teach a horse to count they can teach a gook to be free.
Sgt. Chance Lubbock: I don't got much time for Colonels, Colonel. My men need me.
Col. Bronze Hammersmith: Charlie can wait five minutes.
Sgt. Chance Lubbock: Charlie, maybe, but I've got fifteen strong blacks in my platoon and they're crazy on the reefer. They've gotta shoot something and I'd prefer it doesn't have round eyes.
Sgt. Chance Lubbock: [Pulls back from a kiss with Jenny Wu] I've never kissed a gook before.
Jenny Wu: I'm only half-gook.
Sgt. Chance Lubbock: What's the other half?
Jenny Wu: French.
Sgt. Chance Lubbock: I hope I kissed the gook. [He kisses her again.]
Gen. Long-King Ngook: Pray to God? Ha! There is no time for your Yankee fantasies.
[Shoots the American prisoner.]
Gen. Long-King Ngook: When we are victorious here we will go there, to America, and I will laugh when we slay your American God on his altar.
Sgt. Chance Lubbock: Rest easy, little buddy. We did it. It's over. Just try to stay awake.
Cpl. Lu Nguyen: [Clearly dying] We did it?
Sgt. Chance Lubbock: Me and America did it, but you did help some.
Sgt. Chance Lubbock: You're what this is all about...free gooks...
TOTAL WRECK - crazy-eyed hound is covered in cobwebs, has a vespiary on back, graffiti on side and savage thirst for boat fuel. Frankly, I'm in over my head. He's in room 115 at Motel 6, yours free. 555-2851
Yes, it's the perfect form for surviving a car crash. But it's also the perfect form for so much more, like surviving the trauma of reading any news headline in 2016.
