    1. Capt. Benjamin Willard: Saigon... Shit... I'm still only in Saigon... Every time I think I'm gonna wake up back in the jungle. When I was home after my first tour it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife until I said yes to a divorce. When I was here I wanted to be there. When I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle. I'm here a week now, waiting for a mission, getting softer. Every minute I stay in this room I get weaker. And every minute Charlie squats in the bush he gets stronger. Each time I look around the walls move in a little tighter...

What do you call it when the assassins accuse the assassin? They lie... They lie, and we have to be merciful for those who lie... Those nabobs, I hate them. I do hate them.
