Antheil Quotes in Who'll Stop the Rain (1978)
John Converse: [about his wife] If you really want to know, I think she's pretty moral, basically.
Antheil: "Pretty moral, basically"? Oh, Jesus. What a couple of yo-yo's.-- Antheil
Antheil: I was just reading your play. I liked a lot of it. I don't like the main character, though. This Marine. Sounds like a real jellyfish. I guess you're supposed to like him because he's against the Marine Corps. Is that it?
John Converse: Something like that.
Antheil: Why doesn't he *do* something? I mean, go over the hill, refuse an order. I couldn't sympathize with a character like that.
John Converse: Not everyone did.
Antheil: The Marine in the play, that supposed to be you?
John Converse: No.
Antheil: Maybe a little?
John Converse: Maybe on some level.
Antheil: Um-hmn. You know what I think, "on some level"? I think you're the kind of wise cocksucker that writes a tear-jerk play against the Marines and then turns around and smuggles a shitload of heroin into this country.-- Antheil
