SMITH, Ebbe Roe



Falling Down


…..

Bill Foster:

I helped build missiles. I helped protect this country. You should be rewarded for that. But instead they give it to the plastic surgeons, you know they lied to me.

Sergeant Prendergast:

Is that what this is about? Is that why my chicken dinner is drying out in the oven? You're mad because they lied to you? Listen, pal, they lie to everyone. They lie to the fish. But that doesn't give you any special right to do what you did today.

Nick:

We're the same, you and me. We're the same, don't you see?

Bill Foster:

Bill Foster:

It's like when those astronauts got in trouble. I don't know, somebody messed up, and they had to get them back to Earth. But they had passed the point of no return. They were on the other side of the moon and were out of contact for like hours. Everybody waited to see if a bunch of dead guys in a can would pop out the other side. Well, that's me. I'm on the other side of the moon now and everybody is going to have to wait until I pop out.

Bill Foster:

What the hell you trying to do? Kill me with a golf ball? Is that enough for all your dirty land for this game? But you had to kill me with a golf ball? We should have children here, family picnics... We should have a goddamn petting zoo instead of these stupid electric carts for you old men with nothing better to do.
