Quotes from the Movie Casualties of War

Oh, you wanna take an attack posture wit' me? Yeah, you got a weapon. Clark got a weapon, Clark got a knife! We all got weapons! Anybody can blow anybody away, any second. Which is the way it ought to be. Always.

Sgt. Tony Meserve

This is a weapon, this is a gun. This is for fighting, this is for fun.

Sgt. Tony Meserve

Everybody's acting like we can do anything and it don't matter what we do. Maybe we gotta' be extra careful because maybe it matters more than we even know.

Eriksson

Hey man, what happens in the field, stays in the field.

Cpl. Clark

Oh, you wanna take an attack posture wit' me? Yeah, you got a weapon. Clark got a weapon, Clark got a knife! We all got weapons! Anybody can blow anybody away, any second. Which is the way it ought to be. Always.

Sergeant Tony Meserve

We have a VC suspect. Is that what you mean? She's a VC whore and we're gonna have fun with her.

Sergeant Tony Meserve

You're the cherry here, right? So lighten up. Let me carry the weight.

Sergeant Tony Meserve

Well, what's the matter, don't you like girls? Ain't you got a pair, is your problem?

Sergeant Tony Meserve

You beaucoup dinky dau, man. You beaucoup dinky dau!

Sergeant Tony Meserve

This goddamn thing's turnin' us on our heads, man! I mean, Just because any of us at any second might be blown away, everybody's acting like we can do anything, man! And it don't matter what we do! But I'm thinkin' maybe it's the other way around. You know, maybe the main thing is just the opposite. Because we might be dead in the next split second, we gotta be extra careful what we do. Jesus, man, maybe it matters more than we even know.

Private Eriksson

Give me a minute on this thing we're doing. I mean, what we're doing. What are we doing, sarge?

Private Eriksson

Maybe if you'd have been there, sir. Maybe if you had heard her screaming, you'd feel-

Private Eriksson

I'd like to get out of this particular company, yes, sir.

Private Eriksson

That's not gonna keep me from trying to bring this thing out, sir.

Private Eriksson

Nobody cares, Meserve. Oh, I told everybody! I told them. You don't have to worry. You don't have to try to kill me, man. I told them, and THEY DON'T CARE!

Private Eriksson

Well, that's a Rog, Eriksson- you're a tunnel rat. We get to the rear, you pack your trash-

Capt. Hill

Nobody's trying to keep you from doing a goddamn thing. My function here is just to tell you just how something like this is gonna come down. And you oughta be advised that military court-martials are notoriously lenient, and stateside review boards are even more lenient. Even if these four guys get convicted they're not gonna do any real time.

Capt. Hill

There ain't no point, Eriksson. I'm simply trying to illuminate the terrain in which we currently find ourselves deployed. You don't mind that, do you? And if you do, FUCK YOU!

Capt. Hill
