Quotes from the Movie Born on the Fourth of July

I'll walk again.

Ron Kovic:

No, I know I'll walk again!

Ron Kovic

No, let me tell you something, Ron. You will never walk again.

Doctor

Don't you raise your voice to me Mr. Kovic, you watch your mouth.

Nurse Washington

Look at my leg. It's twice as big as it ever was. When are you people gonna help me? I wanna see the doctor now!

Ron Kovic

He's not available now. He's too busy.

Nurse Washington

He's always too busy.

Ron Kovic

What's eating you now, Kovic? You going off the deep end?

Marvin

You want out of here, man? Fine. We take that leg of yours, and we can get you out of here in two weeks!

Marvin

I want my leg!

Ron Kovic

Why? You can't feel it no how!

Marvin

[incredulous and angry] It's my leg! I want my leg, you understand? Can't you understand that? All's I'm sayin' is that I want to be treated like a human being! I fought for my country! I am a Vietnam veteran! I fought for my country!

Ron Kovic

And I think that I deserve to be treated... decent!

Ron Kovic

Vietnam? Vietnam don't mean nothing to me man, or any of these other people. You can take your Vietnam and shove it up your ass.

Marvin

[attempting to walk in the hospital] Am I good? Hey, [drags himself forward] am I good?

Ron Kovic
