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.
