[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 division.
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
