“Take it easy now - I've got first-class references from people who've been punched in the face by me. All of them were completely satisfied.”
Lothar-Günther Buchheim, Das Boot

“But there really ought to be a film of all this: closeups of pure shit. Horizon bald as a baby's bottom, a couple of clouds - and that's it. Then they could film the inside of the boat: moldy bread, filthy necks, rotten lemons, torn shirts, sweaty blankets, and, as a grand finale, all of us looking utterly pissed-off.”
Lothar-Günther Buchheim, Das Boot

“Wieso den nich! Wieso den nich! O Gott, bist du dämlich - halt du mal n nackten Arsch an ne Kreissäge und sag dann, welcher Zacken dich geschnitten hat!”
Lothar-Günther Buchheim, Das Boot
