Image for Classic Scene #45: Apocalypse Now

Smell that? Do you smell that? Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that... (He crouches down). I love the smell of napalm in the morning. Do you know, one time we had a hill bombed. For 12 hours. When it was all over I walked up. We didn’t find one of ’em, not one stinking dink body. But the smell... you know that gasoline smell? The whole hill... Smells like... Victory... (A shell explodes behind him, but he doesn’t flinch) Some day this war’s gonna end.
