guys, how can you not have this quote here http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093058/quotes?qt0475804

Sgt Hartman[edit]

The question of emphasis[edit]

One or more users continue to edit this article with emphasis markup and impressionistic narration (e.g. "he holds the donut like a dead rat"). I suppose these users want reading the article to be the same experience as watching the movie. This is a hopeless goal. If someone wants the experience of watching the movie, they have to watch the movie. If the quotations without markup are bland, then perhaps they are not very significant quotations (i.e. "witty, pithy, wise, eloquent, or poignant"), despite being significant theatrical performances. 24.7.14.87 05:07, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

Editors continue to toss in narration and emphasis. I continue to remove it, because this is still Wikiquote and not Wikitheater. By the above-cited quotability standards, the very presence of many of the quotes on this page is questionable. Through all this, none of the editors(?) restoring the narration and emphasis have bothered to make any case here for it. 24.7.14.87 07:21, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
