30 Days of TV – Day 24

Day 24 – Best quote

I’m probably going to think up a dozen better quotes by tomorrow—much less the next hour or two—but off the top of my head, Generation Kill comes to mind. Namely anything that comes out of Cpl. Ray Person’s mouth. Some of the best sleep-dep-addled rants in television (and journalism) history. I can’t find any of the exact quotes I’m thinking of on YouTube—hell, they might have only been in the book—so this exchange will have to suffice.

Cpl. Josh Ray Person: “I mean seriously, homes, why would our Iraqi brethren want 400 pounds of C-4, claymores and crates of M-16s? I mean, it just doesn’t make any sense. Oh, wait! You know, they could be using all that C-4 for, like, a giant 4th of July celebration. What do you think, Brad?”

Sgt. Brad ‘Iceman’ Colbert: “I think it’s time for you to shut the fuck up.”
