"Almighty Father, forgive me for saying the words I did in anger, shaming him for his poverty and blaming him for mine. And for putting the idea in his head. Forgive him. Forgive him. He didn't know what he was doing."
"Is there any place on land or sea where there is no war?... Blackout. Blackout. Blackout. Blackout. Everywhere people stumblin' in the dark. Is there to be no more light in the world? Is there no place in this dark land where a man who's drunk can find a decent bit of fun?"
"Well gentlemen, this is it. This is what we've been waiting for. Tonight your target is Tokyo. And you're gonna play 'em the Star Spangled Banner with two-ton bombs. All you've got to do is to remember what you've learned and follow your squadron leaders. They'll get you in, and they'll get you out. Any questions? All right that's all. Good luck to you.

"We pay taxes to the government and what do we get--not even protection from the army. I don't know what the government has come to. Instead of protecting businessmen, it pokes its nose into business. Hm. Well they're even talking now about having bank examiners. As if we bankers don't know how to run our own banks. Why I actually have a letter from a popinjay official saying they're going to inspect my books. I have a slogan that should be placed on every newspaper in the country. America for Americans. The government must not interfere with business. Reduce taxes. Our national debt is something shocking--over $1 billion a year. What this country needs is a businessman for president."
