“How one handles success or failure is determined by their early childhood.”
“- John: C'mon, it's Czechoslovakia. We zip in, we pick 'em up, we zip right out again. We're not going to Moscow. It's Czechoslovakia. It's like going into Wisconsin.
- Russell: Well I got the shit kicked out of me in Wisconsin once. Forget it!”
- Recruiter: Now, are either of you homosexuals?
- John: You mean, like, flaming, or...
- Recruiter: Well, it's a standard question we have to ask.
- Russell: No, we're not homosexual, but we are willing to learn.
- John: Yeah, would they send us someplace special?

“- Russell: John, do you think I'm officer material?
- John: God, I'm worried about you.
- Russell: Come on! I'm in good shape, I'm walking tall, I'm looking good. First weekend in Europe.
