  • OK, Ralph, you know, I don't have to help you, but let me tell you something. If you flunk out and die in Vietnam, that's the end of our friendship, fuck you, you know.
  • [To a hitchhiker] Hop in! We're not homosexuals or anything.
  • We have naked people giving us free food!
  • You can disagree. You can say that it's not right. That's what freedom is.


Scott: I've already decided if nothing happens by the time I am 20, I'm gonna cut it off.
