Quotes

Radio Operator Peterson: [looking down] That's an awful big town, San Francisco.

Assistant Crew Chief Weinberg: Strictly a one whistle stop. There's only one city in the U.S.A. and that's New York.

Sgt. Robbie White: Oh, you're just a hometown hick, Weinberg. What's wrong with California?

Assistant Crew Chief Weinberg: California? The sun shines and nuthin' ever happens. Before you know it, you're 60 years old.

Sgt. Robbie White: It's no different from New York. My sister's been tryin' to get out of Brooklyn for the last 40 years.

Assistant Crew Chief Weinberg: Brooklyn? That ain't New York, chief. Once you cross that Brooklyn Bridge, you're outta this woild. The only noise you hear is the hardening of your arteries. You know when I used to drive a hack, I had a pal who crossed that bridge in 1929. Ain't ever heard from him since.

Radio Operator Peterson: Me, I'll take Minneapolis.

Assistant Crew Chief Weinberg: Minneapolis? Why, the grass still grows in the streets. Besides, that ain't your hometown, Peterson. The hayseed's still stickin' outta your hair.

Radio Operator Peterson: Yeah, but I can still milk a cow. I bet you can't.

Assistant Crew Chief Weinberg: I'll get mine outta a bottle. That's the closest I ever wanna be to a cow.

Sgt. Robbie White: You are handy with the old bull.

Assistant Crew Chief Weinberg: [laughs]

Sgt. Joe Winocki: [looking down at devastation in Pearl Harbor] Damn 'em!, Damn 'em!

Sgt. Robbie White: [sarcastically] Aren't ya glad now that you're gettin' out of the Army?

Assistant Crew Chief Weinberg: [looking at map] Is this here Wake Island?

Navigator Monk Hauser: Yeah.

Assistant Crew Chief Weinberg: How far is it?

Navigator Monk Hauser: Oh, it's about 2300 miles from Honolulu.

Assistant Crew Chief Weinberg: [whistles] And we're gonna land on that dot?

Navigator Monk Hauser: Yeah, it's not very big, is it?

Assistant Crew Chief Weinberg: Like trying to find a buckshot in Central Park. Gee, I wish there were some traffic signs around.

Navigator Monk Hauser: There are, but you can't see them.

Assistant Crew Chief Weinberg: I mean like numbers and streets.

Navigator Monk Hauser: Yeah, but they call them latitudes and longitudes.

Assistant Crew Chief Weinberg: Oh, and they're just like signs, hunh?

Navigator Monk Hauser: Yeah, if the wind doesn't change them.
