Kim Baker Quotes in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)
Kim Baker Quotes:
Kim Baker: What are we talking about, Fahim?
Fahim Ahmadzai: The human body produces its own heroin. In fact, when the fight-or-flight instinct is activated in the hypothalamu, your body releases endorphins, dopamine and norepinephrine. That is heroin, cocaine and amphetamine, all at once.
Kim Baker: Okay, great. Are we having the Afghan version of this conversation, where in New York we would have gotten to the point, like, five minutes ago?
Fahim Ahmadzai: There is a reason to believe that a person can get addicted to this type of high. Soldiers, athletes...
Kim Baker: War reporters. Got it.
Fahim Ahmadzai: An addict always needs a greater and greater dosage. And then people make mistakes, people get hurt.
Kim Baker: I get it. You're a newlywed. I can probably get them to go up to $125 a day.
Fahim Ahmadzai: Let us have the American version of this conversation.
Kim Baker: Okay.
Fahim Ahmadzai: I do not want to work with you anymore.
Kim Baker: I'm wondering if you can give me something... on background, just about the security situation here and the state of the war in general.
General Hollanek: Yeah, I can give you something... this war's like fucking a gorilla, you keep on going until the gorilla wants to stop.
Kim Baker: I think I can paraphrase that.
General Hollanek: Knock yourself out.
Kim Baker: [Putting on blue burqa] It's so pretty I don't even want to vote.
Tall Brian: Brian Hooper. Tall Brian. I'm your shooter.
Kim Baker: So, is there another Brian around here somewhere that you're taller than?
Tall Brian: Short Brian. Works for Reuters.
Kim Baker: Couldn't one of you just be Brian?
Tall Brian: Fair enough, didn't think of that. Also, Short Brian's dead.
General Hollanek: While you're outside the wire with my men, you will in no way distract them. Understood?
Kim Baker: Are you asking me not to sleep with your soldiers?
General Hollanek: No, not soldiers. Marines. You're not here to sleep with or perform jobs of any type on my Marines.
Kim Baker: What inspired you to enlist originally?
Lt. Stern: I'm a big fan of the movie Predator with Arnold Schwarzenegger. We're the same height.
Tanya Vanderpoel: In Afghanistan, you're a serious piece of ass.
Kim Baker: Thank you. Ohh, that's nice.
Tanya Vanderpoel: Because you're what, I mean, you're like, a seven, a six, seven in New York? Here, you're a nine. Borderline ten. It's called "Kabul Cute."
Kim Baker: What are you here, like a 15?
Tanya Vanderpoel: Yeah.
Kim Baker: No, you are a bad friend. You are a bad friend. In America, I would get a book deal out of this shit! You can't just do this, OK? I haven't been on the air in months! My best friend here, almost died, and I am jealous of her. And I am just... Fuck this! All of it!
Kim Baker: It's probably just a wedding somewhere nearby. They like to shoot off guns at weddings here. You get it, you're from Florida.
Tanya Vanderpoel: Can I fuck your security guys?
Kim Baker: What?... By all means, yeah.
Tanya Vanderpoel: Yeah? I mean, I wouldn't ask. It's just that for some reason, the VBC use an American contractor and, I mean, no offense, but they're all, like goatees and "fat-strong".
Tom: *All right. Enough is Enough. You're slacking on your chores. You're fighting in school*. Things are out of control. As of this moment, you are all grounded*

Sarah Baker: But that
Tom: Oh yes Sarah, I know that sucks, but that's the way it is!
