New York Times, Gina Kolata: How long have you been on this hill,

Ken Ribet: [angrily] What?

New York Times, Gina Kolata: Hey brother, how many times have you been
up and down this hill?

Harold Edwards: [gruffly] What are you doing here?

New York Times, Gina Kolata: My job.

Gerd Faltings: Bullshit.

Barry Mazur: [spoken softly] I've been up and down this hill, nine
fuckin times

New York Times, Gina Kolata : Hey, word down at division is that you
guys can't take this hill. What do you have to say about that? In fact,
Senator Kennedy says you guys don't have a chance at all.

Andrew Wiles: You really like this shit don't you. Its your job, a
story, you're waiting here like a fucking vulture, waiting for someone
to die so you can take a picture.

New York Times, Gina Kolata: It's my job.

Andrew Wiles: I got more respect for those little bastards up there, at
least they take a side, you just take pictures. [loud and angrily] You
probably don't even do your own fucking.

Gina Kolata of The New York Times [ stepping backwards]

Andrew Wiles: Now, One-Ass-I-May-O

New York Times, Gina Kolata : What?

Andrew Wiles : Now you listen to me. We are going to take this fucking
hill, newswoman. I see you on the top taking pictures and saying that
the p-adics are identical to the Successor Postulate of the Peano
Axioms to any of my people. I will blow your fucking head off. Now you
haven't earned the right to be here. Do you understand that? Do you
understand that?
-- adapted from movie HAMBURGER HILL
