David Poole Quotes:

  • Capt. T.C. Doyle: You slept with the wife of General "Kill-'em-all-and-let-God-sort-them-out" Richardson?

    David Poole: I thought it was his daughter.

    Capt. T.C. Doyle: Oh yeah, he would've been fine with that.

  • Capt. T.C. Doyle: Poole? Can you get me some more of that water buffalo tranquilizer?

    David Poole: Really enjoyed that, didn't you Doyle? Linh was right, you ARE weird.

  • David Poole: Gilman, may I remind you that I have friends who have absolutely no regard for the sanctity of human life? I pick up the phone, I have your head in a bag on my desk tomorrow morning.

  • David Poole: Deal. And, uh, Gilman? I'd still have somebody taste your food.

  • David Poole: You know something? This country's really beautiful.

    Sp5 Lawrence Farley: Yeah. Kind of reminds me of home.

    David Poole: [suddenly acid] Oh, really? How exactly does this remind you of home?

    Sp5 Lawrence Farley: Well...

    David Poole: No, Farley, tell me, what is it? The spirit-crushing humidity? The disease-bearing insects? Or is it that special feeling that comes from the knowledge that at any given moment, a sniper's bullet could come spiralling towards your forehead?

  • 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?

  • David Poole: [after Cahill and Doyle's argument almost throws Farley off the bridge] Yep. I'm REAL happy about my decision to stick with you guys.

  • [the team stops in a village, and one of the villagers asks Poole what they need]

    David Poole: [in Vietnamese] I need to get to Saigon. These men have kidnapped me.

    Capt. Sam Cahill: Poole, I speak the language.

    David Poole: [laughs nervously] It was a joke.

    Capt. Sam Cahill: Any more joking... I'll call you-know-who.
