John Ireland Quotes:

[Cane shoots one of Rose's prisoners who attempted to escape]
Cane Miro: C'mon - I'll help you get your worm bait back to town.


Jack Burden: Anne, Burden's Landing is a place on the Moon. It isn't real. It doesn't exist. It's me pretending to live on what I earn.

It's an old man like the judge dreaming of the past.


[Windy composes a letter while his landing craft is heading for the beachhead at Salerno under heavy fire]
Windy: Dear Frances, I am writing you this letter relaxing on the deck of a luxury liner. On shore the natives have evidently just spotted us and are getting up a reception - fireworks, music and that sort of stuff. Ha. The musicians in our own band have also struck up a little tune. Ha ha.
