Lt. Cmdr. Charles E. Madison: I would think so.
Old Sailor: Well, Commander, we ain't that stoned. We're not that stoned if we're gonna go out onto that beach and take pictures of the dead bodies floating in with no film in the camera!
Lt. Cmdr. Charles E. Madison: Well then, what'd ya say we don't make this movie? Huh!
Old Sailor: Hey, that's swell!
