Dr. Strangeglove quotes and Dr. Strangeglove Cast
Dr Strangeglove quotes are the topic of this post.
I can’t think of a better dark comedy to write about. The image of Slim Pickens riding the bomb is forever stuck in my brain. Directed by Stanley Kubrick.
In fact, I have a funny story about this exact event.
I had a friend that had recently gotten out of the service. When asked at a bar what he had done in the army, he would respond “ICBM pilot”. Its a tough job, and a one way ticket, but someone has to do it. Amazingly, maybe 50% of the people he met understood that this was a joke. There was no such job! In our circle of friends, I think I was the only one that understood it was a Dr. Strangeglove reference. How I learned to love the bomb!
Dr. Strangeglove quotes
Slim Pickens says this gem. “Well boys, we’ve got three engines out, we’ve got more holes in us than a horse trader’s mule, the radio’s gone and we’re leaking fuel and if we was flying any lower, why we’d need sleigh bells on this thing… But we’ve got one thing on those Ruskies… At this height, why they might harpoon us, but they dang sure ain’t gonna spot us on no radar screen!”
Also from Major “king” Kong “survival kit contents check. In them you’ll find: one forty-five caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days’ concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Russian phrase book and Bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair of nylon stockings. Shoot, a fella’ could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.
George C. Scott as Gen. ‘Buck’ Turgidson get these great lines. “Your average Ruskie doesn’t take a dump without a plan.” and “Mr. President, I’m not saying we wouldn’t get our hair mussed. But I do say no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh, depending on the breaks.” “Mister President, we must not allow a mine shaft gap!”
“I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion, and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.”
