  • Quotes

    • Chung Ho Kim: Gentlemen, it is truely not a matter for my government to deal with.
      Hawkeye: This kid has a label that says 'Made in Korea.' Who do we talk to, Yugoslavia?
      Chung Ho Kim: I am sorry.
      Potter: What about the terrible stories we hear? Mutilating babies, killing them?
      Chung Ho Kim: Sadly, Colonel, in some cases they are true.
      Hawkeye: My God! What kind of place is this?!
      Potter: Easy Pierce. We're just visitors here.
      Chung Ho Kim: Its all right, Colonel. The Captain asks a valid question.
      Hawkeye: Then how about a valid answer?
      Chung Ho Kim: This is an ancient land, Captain. Its culture goes back many, many centuries. It has survived many wars. Our people are of one race. It is their feeling that the intrusion of a mixed-race child into such an orderly society represents disorder. Such a child is hated here.
      Hawkeye: Yeah, so I've heard.
      Chung Ho Kim: I do not deny that they are treated with terrible cruelty. Korean law barely acknowledges their existence, and protects them not at all.
      Hawkeye: Swell.
      Chung Ho Kim: This may seem harsh and inflexible, but such attitudes are not unique to my country.
      Hawkeye: Oh, who is it now, Bolivia?
      Chung Ho Kim: No, Captain, your United States. Americans are not the only ones fathering children, but they are the only ones who ignore them. France, Great Britain, the Netherlands, acknowledge a responibility for these unfortunate babies of their military. They will support and help them, offer them citizenship. But the United States, 'where all men are created equal,' refuses to do this. You reject the children of your own people.
