List of Salvador quotes.

Doctor Rock: That's the biggest fucking needle I ever saw!

Richard Boyle: Is that why you're here, Colonel? Some kind of post-Vietnam experience like you need a rerun or something? You pour a hundred twenty million bucks into this place, you turn it into a military zone, so what, so you can have chopper parades in the sky?

Carlos: (about El Salvador) There is no more God.
