: Charlie has hit every major military target in Vietnam, and hit 'em hard. In Saigon, the United States Embassy has been overrun by suicide squads. Khe Sahn is standing by to be overrun. We also have reports that a division of N.V.A. has occupied all of the city of Hue south of the Perfume River. In strategic terms, Charlie's cut the country in half... the civilian press are about to wet their pants and we've heard even Cronkite's going to say the war is now unwinnable. In other words, it's a huge shit sandwich, and we're all gonna have to take a bite. Private Joker
: Sir... does this mean that Ann-Margret's not coming? Lt. Lockhart
: Joker... I want you to get straight up to Phu Bai. Captain January will need all his people. Private Joker
: Yes, sir. Lt. Lockhart
: And Joker, you will take off that damn button. How's it gonna look if you get killed wearing a peace symbol? Private Rafterman
: Sir? Permission to go with Joker? Lt. Lockhart
: Permission granted. Private Rafterman
: Thank you, sir. Private Joker
: Sir, permission not to take Rafterman with me? Lt. Lockhart
: You still here? Vanish, Joker, most ricky-tick, and take Rafterman with you. You're responsible for him.
] ... we have a new directive from M.A.F. on this. In the future, in place of "search and destroy," substitute the phrase "sweep and clear." Got it? Private Joker
: Got it. Very catchy.
