Quotes from

Capt. Nelson: [to Williams' dead body] Oh, we won't forget you, Pop. From now on, if I ever get to buy another newspaper, I'll remember what a few cents can buy. So long.

Mark Williams: Your folks are gonna get quite a kick out of reading about you.
Lt. Sid Jacobs: [Taken aback] You mean all that stuff will be in the Schenectady paper?
Mark Williams: Sure. You don't mind, do you?
Lt. Sid Jacobs: Well, heck, no! What do you know, it's a small world, isn't it?
Mark Williams: Yeah, and it's getting smaller. If only more folks back home would realize that Crane Street, Schenectady runs all the way to Burma, this would be the last war.
Lt. Sid Jacobs: Amen.

Mark Williams: [Aghast and outraged at the atrocities] Hey, I've been a newspaperman for thirty years. I thought I'd seen or read about everything that one man can do to another from the torture chambers of the Middle Ages to the gang wars and lynchings of the day. But this... this is different! This was done in cold blood... by people who... who claim to be civilized. Civilzed? They're degenerate immoral idiots! Stinkin' little savages! Wipe 'em out, I say! Wipe 'em out! Wipe 'em off the face of the Earth! Wipe 'em off the face of the earth!
[Walking offscreen]
Mark Williams: The bastards! God!
