[Robert sawing off a shotgun]



Danny:
They were people!



Robert:
Yeah, well, so was my dad.



Aardvark:
What was it like?


[Robert stops sawing]



Robert:
It was good.


[Robert resumes sawing]

The Colonel:
You think you're tough for eating beans every day? There's half a million scarecrows in Denver who'd give anything for one mouthful of what you got. They've been under siege for about three months. They live on rats and sawdust bread and sometimes... on each other. At night, the pyres for the dead light up the sky. It's medieval.

Col. Andy Tanner:
...The Russians need to take us in one piece, and that's why they're here. That's why they won't use nukes anymore; and we won't either, not on our own soil. The whole damn thing's pretty conventional now. Who knows? Maybe next week will be swords.



Darryl Bates:
What started it?



Col. Andy Tanner:
I don't know. Two toughest kids on the block, I guess. Sooner or later, they're gonna fight.



Jed Eckert:
That simple, is it?



Col. Andy Tanner:
Or maybe somebody just forget what it was like.



Jed Eckert:
...Well, who *is* on our side?



Col. Andy Tanner:
Six hundred million screaming Chinamen.



Darryl Bates:
Last I heard, there were a billion screaming Chinamen.



Col. Andy Tanner:
There *were*.

Jed Eckert:
[at the execution of Daryl Bates and Stepan Gorsky] Do you want blindfolds?



Stepan Gorsky:
This violates the Geneva convention.



Jed Eckert:
I never heard of it!



Stepan Gorsky:
Dogface! I show you how Soviet dies!



Robert:
I've seen it before, pal.



Danny:
[who is tied up in the distance, with the horses] This isn't happening! Jed, let him go! He was one of us!



Jed Eckert:
Shut up, Danny! Shut up!



Robert:
He told them where we were!



Jed Eckert:
He did. Now get your rifles.



Matt Eckert:
*No!*



Jed Eckert:
WHAT DID YOU SAY?



Matt Eckert:
*We're not doing it!*



Stepan Gorsky:
[to Daryl] Boy, say at me you are friend, so I will not die alone.



Matt Eckert:
What's the difference, Jed?



Robert:
I'll do it.



Matt Eckert:
Shut up, Robert!


[to Jed]



Matt Eckert:
*Tell me what's the difference between us and them!*



Jed Eckert:
Because WE *LIVE* HERE!


[kills Stepan; Robert kills Daryl]

Jed Eckert:
My family would want me to stay alive. Your family would want you to stay alive. You think you're so smart, man, but you're just a bunch of scared kids.



Danny:
So what do you think *you* are?



Jed Eckert:
...Alone, I guess.



Matt Eckert:
[comes and stands with him] No, you're not.

Jed Eckert:
[in the mountains] Matt and I have been coming up to these mountains with our dad our whole lives. We can hunt, we can fish, we can stay up here a long, long time.



Robert:
How long, Jed?


[fighters and bombers pass overhead]



Jed Eckert:
[indicating the jets above them] Until we don't hear *that* no more.

[they are surveying a wintery landscape, as several tanks gather on both sides to shoot it out] You got across *that*?



Col. Andy Tanner:
Just part of it. I hope our guys are still there.



Jed Eckert:
So this is the battlefield?



Col. Andy Tanner:
It's a real war, kid. It's here every day.

Col. Strelnikov:
[he lectures the Russo-Cuban Army about what must be done regarding the Wolverines] From this moment on... There will be no further reprisals against civilians. This was stupid. Impotence. Comrades... If a fox stole your chickens... Would you slaughter your pig because he saw the fox? No. You would hunt the fox... You would find where it lives and destroy it! And how do we do this? Become a fox.

Jed Eckert:
[after the deaths of Aardvark and Colonel Tanner] It's kind of strange, isn't it? How the mountains pay us no attention at all. You laugh or you cry... The wind just keeps on blowing.



Matt Eckert:
You're getting pretty low on feelings, aren't you?



Jed Eckert:
I can't afford them.



Matt Eckert:
Even if that had been me instead of Aardvark?

[the Wolverines discover that Daryl has been "bugged" by the Russo-Cubans] Daryl... Where is it? Where is it?


[Jed grabs Daryl, gets in Daryl's face and shouts]



Jed Eckert:
GOD-DAMMIT, WHERE'S THE BUG?



Darryl Bates:
They made me swallow it.



Matt Eckert:
Daryl, what have you done?



Darryl Bates:
[nearly in tears] I went into town... and got caught.



Jed Eckert:
[shaking him and screeching with rage] YOU WENT AND GOT CAUGHT! WHY?



Darryl Bates:
[His voice breaks] You said we couldn't...



Robert:
You told them where we were, didn't you? You told them!



Darryl Bates:
[sobbing] My father turned me in. Oh God, they do things you can't imagine.



Jed Eckert:
[throws him down, growling with rage] AAAAGGHHH! You SON OF A BITCH!

Colonel Ernesto Bella:
[in the now-occupied Calumet, Colorado] It would seem necessary to win the support of the people. As our opponents used to say in Vietnam: "Win their hearts and minds."



General Bratchenko:
And they lost, Ernesto... Morale is crucial right now. Keep the men in the secured areas. You'll see how they forget about these "Wolverines."



Colonel Ernesto Bella:
[Toni blows up a nearby "Soviet-American Friendship Center."] You were saying, Comrade?



General Bratchenko:
Oh, shut up!

Col. Andy Tanner:
[using a crude diorama, the Wolverines prepare for an assault on the Calumet Drive-In, which is now a Russo-Cuban "Re-education Camp"] All right. Four planes. Cuban bunker, Russian bunker. munitions dump, troop tents. Four machine gun bunkers. Back here by the drive-in screen are your political prisoners. We'll cause a diversion over here... cut holes in the wire here, fire on all these machine gun positions. The B-Group comes across this area in a flanking maneuver... and when you reach this bunker, you lay down grazing fire on this defilade. I think that's pretty simple. Anybody got any questions so far?



Aardvark:
What's a "flank?"



Toni:
What's a "defilade?"



Robert:
What's "grazing fire?"



Col. Andy Tanner:
[out loud, to himself] I need a drink.

[the Wolverines arrive at the Mason house, where they will be joined by Toni and Erica] We got us some outlaws here.

Wow, a house.



Mr. Mason:
Go on and find a chair.



Robert:
Last time we were in a house was five weeks.



Mr. Mason:
You look it.

Mayor Bates:
[in Mayor Bates' office, where he is being questioned by Colonel Bella] Daryl, he wouldn't hurt a fly. I know my son, Colonel. He's not the guerrilla type.



Colonel Ernesto Bella:
According to records, Mayor... your son is a prominent student leader.



Mayor Bates:
Yes, well... he's a leader, but not in a violent or physical way. You see, Daryl... he's more of a politician, like his father.



Colonel Ernesto Bella:
A member of an elite paramilitary organization: "Eagle Scouts."



Mayor Bates:
Yes, but that's not military. If he's alive, he's scared, he's hungry... and he's just as anxious to avoid conflicts as you and me. He's not a troublemaker.



Colonel Ernesto Bella:
Then who is?



Mayor Bates:
...It runs in some of the families.



Colonel Ernesto Bella:
[to an aide-de-camp] This community is indeed fortunate to have a shepherd like him.



Mayor Bates:
Well, I just want to see this thing through, Colonel.

[Pouring a can of soup in the pot] That's the last of it... except for the olives.

We still got plenty of meat left.



Danny:
Just stuff you shot.

So tell me, dork, where do you suppose hamburgers come from?



Danny:
Nobody shoots them.

We need food.
