  • Quotes

    • (the Stocktons have closed and locked themselves in their bomb shelter; they won't let anybody else in, because there's air and provisions for only the three of them. Their neighbors are all gathered in the basement, just outside the shelter.)
      Marty Weiss: ...Jerry, you know Bill better than anybody. Go down and tell him to pick out one family.
      Frank Henderson: One family... meaning yours, Marty. Right?
      Marty Weiss: Well, why not? I've got a 3-month-old baby!
      Mrs. Harlowe: What's that got to do with anything? Is your baby any more precious than one of my kids?
      Marty Weiss: I never said that! Listen, if you're going to argue over who deserves to live more than the next person...!
      Frank Henderson: You shut your mouth, Weiss! That's the way it is when the foreigners come over here. Pushy, grabby semi-Americans! Crowding us out of our own country! Tainting our bloodlines!
      Marty Weiss: Why, you garbage-mouthed beast, I'll...! (he attacks Frank and they grapple murderously until Jerry pulls them apart)
      Jerry Harlowe: ...Keep that up, and we won't even need a bomb to slaughter us!
