There was no point in my living life elsewhere, so this was the place to start. And if it was intended for me to die, I was quite willing to die, because I had thought of suicide, and written about it, entertained it, and fantasised about it. I wanna see what America really is. I wanna hang out with people with no education, who come from nowhere. I wanna see what they're thinking. I wanna feel what the bottom of the barrel, what reality is like. And I could think of no greater reality than war. I was eager to get to the war, to learn.
John C. McGinley:
One night I'm sleepin, and I sleep with my mouth open, and he takes a water bug, which is a huge cockroach. He took two of 'em, and they where copulating, and he put it on my beard. And then that thing crawled into my mouth, and I spit it out, and in what was pretty dim light I could see two water bugs copulating on my lap. I went bananas. " This is a f***in movie, and there is water bugs in my mouth." "F*** you, and f*** Oliver." And it started to all come apart. And that's great. Oliver's dick was stiff when he heard stuff like this.
