Chris Taylor: It's the way the whole thing works, people like Elias get wasted, people like Barnes just go on making up the rules any way they want. So what do we do? Sit in the middle and suck on it. We just don't add up to dry sh*t, King.
King: Whoever said we did, man? All you got to do is make it out of here. It's all gravy, everyday the rest of your life, gravy.

Keith David Quote of the Month: February 2005
"Platoon" was Keith David's second film role, and it's a prominent one. He plays King, one of the few soldiers that is civil towards the protagonist Chris, played by Charlie Sheen. And for his efforts, he' also one of the few lucky characters to end up unscathed at the end. At one point, he gives his basic view of life in Vietnam after Chris gives his own increasingly cynical view.
