[after ending credits
You smell that? Do you smell that? Nothing else in the world smells like that, son. I love the smell of napalm in the morning! You know, one day we had a hell bomb. And when I walked out, we didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. But that smell, that gasoline smell... the whole hill, it smelled like... victory.
