Quotes

  • Angelo Maggio  

    Only my friends can call me a little wop!

  • Robert E. Lee 'Prew' Prewitt  

    Nobody ever lies about being lonely.

  • Robert E. Lee 'Prew' Prewitt  

    A man don't go his own way, he's nothing.

  • Sergeant Milton Warden  

    Maybe back in the days of the pioneers a man could go his own way, but today you got to play ball.

  • Karen Holmes  

    Come back here, Sergeant. I'll tell you the story; you can take it back to the barracks with you. I'd only been married to Dana two years when I found out he was cheating. And by that time I was pregnant. I thought I had something to hope for. I was almost happy the night the pains began. I remember Dana was going to an officers' conference. I told him to get home early, to bring the doctor with him. And maybe he would have... if his "conference" hadn't been with a hat-check girl! He was drunk when he came in at 5 AM. I was lying on the floor. I begged him to go for the doctor, but he fell on the couch and passed out. The baby was born about an hour later. Of course it was dead. It was a boy. But they worked over me at the hospital, they fixed me up fine, they even took my appendix out -- they threw that in free.

  • Sergeant Milton Warden  

    Karen...

  • Karen Holmes  

    And one more thing: no more children. Sure I went out with men after that. And if I'd ever found one that...

  • Sergeant Milton Warden  

    Karen, listen to me, listen.

  • Karen Holmes  

    I know. Until I met you I didn't think it was possible either.

  • Alma  

    Sit down and -- and get comfortable. I'll make you a martini and see what's to cook for dinner.

  • Robert E. Lee 'Prew' Prewitt  

    Hey, this is like being married, ain't it?

  • Alma  

    It's better.
