Major Charles Rane: Because I want to find all of 'em.

Linda Forchet: Charlie, you are the quietest man I've ever known.
Major Charles Rane: That's cause I can't think of anything to say. It's like my eyes are open and I'm looking at you but I'm dead. They've pulled out whatever it was inside of me. It never hurt at all after that and it never will.
