Joseph Palmi: You know, we Italians have our families and the church, the Irish have the homeland, the Jews their tradition, the niggers their music. What do you guys have?
Edward Wilson: We have the United States of America. The rest of you are just visiting.

It isn't about dedication and loyalty, it's about belief in what we do.

Edward Wilson: No, we make sure the wars are small ones.
