- Winters: Captain Sobel.
- Sobel: Major Winters. [starts to walk away]
- Winters: Captain Sobel… we salute the rank, not the man. [Sobel slowly turns and salutes]
We gotta do all this with a CO who’s got his head so far up his fucking ass, that lump in his throat is his goddamn nose.
HBO War Characters: Bill Guarnere
“YOU’RE GROWNUPS! YOU OUGHTA KNOW!”
” People think, ‘You’re so damn good looking that you must of had a gang of women.’ I never had a bunch of women. I had one…and that’s the only one I wanted. Even though she predeceased me, as far as I’m concerned I’m still married to Irene and that’s the way I’ll die.”
Don Malarkey on his wife Irene
“Even today, on a real cold night, when we go to bed— and my wife will tell you, the first thing I’ll say is ‘I’m glad I’m not in Bastogne.’”
Without remorse. All war depends upon it.
