"You're neither, you're an errand boy sent by grocery clerks.". Willard: "Everything I saw told me that Kurtz had gone insane. The place was full of bodies. North Vietnamese, Vietcong, Cambodians. If I was still alive, it was because he wanted me that way."
|In Kurtz' camp, a site of primitive evil, they are greeted by a hyperactive, fast talking, spaced-out, free lance American photo-journalist. What is the actor's name? ||Apocalypse Now

It was a lie - and the more I saw of 'em, the more I hated lies. Those boys were never gonna look at me the same way again."
|To make the surfing beach even safer from sniper fire, Kilgore orders an additional air strike with napalm along the tree line. It led to a famous quote. What does Napalm smell like to Kilgore? ||Apocalypse Now
Victory. Colonel Kilgore: "You smell that? Do you smell that?...Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for twelve hours. When it was all over I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know, that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like - victory."
