    • QUOTES (5)

      • Kay: You guys think this kind of hate is new. Let me tell you one thing, I've been punching out guys like him (Gen. Woodward) since I was ten.
        Luca: Yeah, well, we all know about guys like him, Deke.
        Kay: You WASP's don't know nothing about his kind.
        Luca: Hey, I'm a WASP? That's the first Sicilian WASP in history.
        Street: Sorry, Deke, he's just saying some pretty rough things there.
        Kay: OK, so maybe we can't convince him that black is beautiful. But we can convince him that black is here to stay.

      • Lt. Harrelson: Well, see what kind of laughs you can get out of our assignment. Tomorrow, General James J. Woodward is making a speech and we're his security.
        Street: You mean we have to protect that no ..
        Lt. Harrelson: It don't want any opinions, Street. For the next two days, this guy is our problem.
        Luca: Lieutenant, have you read this?
        Lt. Harrelson: I read it.
        Luca: He takes on everybody but the Boy Scouts here. He says he wants everybody out of America the beautiful.
        McCabe: This guy hates Catholics, Jews, blacks, Germans, Poles and God help the rest.
        Street: A lot of people are going to be taking aim.
        Lt. Harrelson: It makes our job all the tougher.

      • (at the Woodwards' cocktail party)
        Mrs. Woodward: Enjoying yourself, Lieutenant?
        Lt. Harrelson: Yes, thank you. I like small parties; you get to know people.
        Mrs. Woodward: Not too well, I hope.
        Lt. Harrelson: People interest me. I like to know all there is to know about them.
        Captain Brenner: Then we better be on our guard, Alicia.
        Lt. Harrelson: I thought you already were.

      • Kay: By the way, you haven't said how the (Woodward's cocktail) party was.
        Lt. Harrelson: Well, the food wasn't bad, buy that other stuff they were serving gave me a little indigestion.

      • Kay: You want to know what I think?
        Lt. Harrelson: Well, so far I've heard Luca say "another day, another dollar", Street tells me "it takes all kinds", and T.J. reminds me "it's just another job." What words of wisdom do you have to offer?
        Kay: Uh, none I guess. I was just wondering, do you think it could happen here? Can guys like Woodward and Brenner, can they go all the way?
        Lt. Harrelson: Only if people let their guard down. Come on, let's go home.
