The clip talking to timmy about war Part 3 from Born on the Fourth of July (1989) with Tom Cruise, Frank Whaley
'Cause I failed, Timmy.
What are you talking about?
'Cause I killed someone-- some people. I--
I made some terrible...
Ronnie, we all made mistakes. I mean, you...
you had no choice.
Those damn pansy demonstrators
will never understand.
Don't talk about it.
It was insane over there.
Sometimes I wish-- I wish I'd--
When I got shot in the foot,
I could have laid down.
Who gives a fuck now if I was a hero or not?
I was paralyzed, castrated that day. Why?
'Cause I was so s-- stupid.
I have my dick and my balls now and I think--
I think, Timmy, I'd give everything I believe in,
everything I got-- all my values
just to have my body again,
just to be whole again.
But I'm not whole.
I never will be, and that's...
the way it is, isn't it?
it's your birthday.
You made it.
