  • Quotes

    • Eli: (On field hospital bed) Hey, tell me something, how did you know those tanks weren't gonna shoot? Come on; don't make me die before I know.
      David: Their tank teams like to use the exhaust stakes to heat up their field rations. They drop the entrées in when they're idling. You can hear them gun the engines to blow the packs up. They always do it before they shell.
      Eli: So they can have a hot meal in peace while we had our heads in the sand. (Coughs) It's not good out there.
      David: It's gonna get worse. I don't know what to do.
      Eli: No, no you'll figure something out. You're always good at fixing things.
      David: They're so much bigger than me there.
      Eli: Bigger than you? You're the kid in front of the tank. You're a hero.
      David: I'm not what you think I am. I'm not a hero. That whole picture's a lie.
      Eli: But you stood up to them.
      David: When they took that picture I wasn't standing up. I was surrounded. They had me, so I surrendered. I dropped my gun, my grenade went off. I got a lucky shot off. It wasn't even luck, it was stupid. I surrendered. Everyone thinks I'm brave. But I'm not.
      Eli: Be brave now.
