Y B'ham: [about Linh] Boy have no family. All killed.

Capt. Sam Cahill: What if the NVA isn't the first to come along here? What if it's a bunch of school children walking home? Did you ever think about that? No! Why? Because guys like you don't think things through!
[pokes Doyle in the forehead]
Capt. T.C. Doyle: Me? What about you? You've got six people and an elephant risking their lives so that you can go home with a clear conscience. You're afraid that when you're standing up on that rooftop with your brother in Fort Lauderdale, looking back over your sparkling military career, you're not gonna like what you see! So you want to do one good thing before you go, which is great! But your one good thing isn't pulling a kid out of a burning building, or diving on a grenade, it's THIS! And because it's THIS, it involves us! But you didn't think about that, did you? NO! Why? Because guys like you don't think things through!
[slaps Cahill on the head]
Capt. T.C. Doyle: [to Cahill, after the ceremony with Botat] When you're standing on a roof with your brother in Fort Lauderdale, I think you're really gonna enjoy the view.
Capt. T.C. Doyle: Poole, where are you going?
David Poole: Saigon!
Capt. T.C. Doyle: Get back here!
Capt. Sam Cahill: Poole, do you want me to call General Richardson?
David Poole: [turns around] Yeah, Cahill! Yeah, I do! Call General Richardson!I'll get him on the phone for you right now! Because I am sick and tired...
[He fumbles with his radio set, then just drops it]
David Poole: That's it! I've had it! I was on a plane that almost crashed, I came this close to being killed by an angry mob, and now look at my uniform! It's covered in elephant crap! So you really think I give a damn whether or not you call General Richardson, and tell him I slept with his wife, huh?

Capt. T.C. Doyle: Better be right...
Harvey (H.A.) Ashford: [into radio] Fire for effect!
Capt. T.C. Doyle: Better be right...
Harvey (H.A.) Ashford: Now.
[Quang looks through his binoculars again, and sees the Americans laughing and waving goodbye]
Lt. Quang, NVA: GET OFF THE BOAT!
[His crew stop laughing and dive overboard just before a shell blows it out of the water]
