[voice-over] I was going to the worst place in the world and I didn't even know it yet. Weeks away and hundreds of miles up a river that snaked through the war like a main circuit cable plugged straight into Kurtz. It was no accident that I got to be the caretaker of Colonel Walter E. Kurtz's memory any more than being back in Saigon was an accident. There is no way to tell his story without telling my own. And if his story really is a confession, then so is mine.

Kilgore

I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

HAL

HAL

Just what do you think you're doing, Dave?

HAL
