[an old rock-and-roll song playing in the background, " ba ba ba ow,
mao, mao, mao, ba ba ba ow mao mao, well, don't you know about the
bird, well everybody knows that the bird is a word, bird, bird, bird, .
. ]

Paul Erdos : You 're going home now

Karl Rubin : Semper Fi

Ian Stewart : We 're mean Marines, sir

Andrew Granville : Go easy, Bros

Richard L. Taylor : Better you than me

Leonard Adelman : Well at least they died for a good cause

Richard L. Taylor : What cause was that?

Leonard Adelman : Freedom

Richard L. Taylor : Flush out your headgear, new guy. You think we
waste gooks for freedom. This is a slaughter. If I am going to get my
balls blown off for a word. My word is poontang.

Barry Cipra : Tough break for a hand job. He was all set to get shipped
out on a Medical.

Nicholas Katz: What was s'matter with him?

Barry Cipra : He was jerking off 10 times a day

Ken Ribet : That's no shit, at least 10 times a day

Gerd Faltings : Last week he was sent down to Danang to see the Navy
headshrinker, and the crazy fucker starts jerking off in the Waiting
Room. Instant Section 8. He was just waiting for his papers to clear

New York Times reporter : You ready? Turn over. Want to see the
interview, roll 34.

Richard L. Taylor : Well like you see, ya know, it's a major city. So
we have to assault with ah tanks. We roll in the streets, so they send
us in, the First Squad, make sure no ah, no ah, no Vietnamese waiting
with B40 rocks to blow the tanks away. So we clear it out, and roll
the tanks in, and basically blow the place to hell.

Simon Kochen : When we are in Weh. When we're in Weh city. It is like a
war, you know. What, what, what I thought about a war. What I thought a
war was supposed to be. There is the enemy, kill him.

John Horton Conway : We are the best . . when the shit hits the fan,
who do they call? They call Mother Green and her killing machine.

John Coates : Do I think America belongs in Vietnam. Well let me answer
that, certainly the p-adics-- there definition is identical to the
Successor Postulate of the Peano Axioms and so they belong with the
Natural Numbers. No, no, no I see no contradiction with our involvement
and our use of P-adics in the proof. And I don't think we have to
justify, or even prove anything about the p-adics as different from
finite integers. Send the grunts in. The p-adics are gooks and they are
gook infinite integers. And we Americans are finite integers. We can
always tell the difference between a gook Infinite Integer, a gook
Finite Integer and a Finite Integer. In the end, if worse comes to
worse, we'll nuke the gook Infinite Integers

Peter Swinnerton-Dyer : Can I quote LBJ ?
