Major Charles Rane: Good to be back. We knew all along, that everyone back home from the President on down was behind us 100%. It was God and faith in our families that kept us going. Speaking for myself, I'd like to say that the whole experience has made a better man, a better officer and a better American out of me. Thank you very much.

Sister: Well, even white people don't make things any good anymore. I bought a US made TV because I wanted to buy American. And it broke down in three weeks. When the repair man came to fix it he said all the parts were made in Japan anyway. So next time I'm gonna buy one straight from Japan.
