Cronauer: "Wilkie, something special, okay? You go into a restaurant, okay? A waitress comes up to you. You're wearing your best new suit. She comes up, she spills soup all over you, looks at you like, "Eh, I'm sorry. What are you gonna do about it, bleephole?" What do you say to her? What would you say? The spilled something on your pants. What would they do... What would you do?"
Vietnamese Student Wilkie: "I do nothing."
Cronauer: "Come on Wilkie, It's cursing class. You're getting pissed off. What would you do?"
Vietnamese Student Wilkie: "I just remain reticent."
Cronauer: "Okay, she goes in the kitchen, she gets a knife, she starts stabbing you. Ste's stabbing you. She's putting forks in you. She's got spoons in your eyes, Wilk. They're starting to cut you, putting spoons in your eyes. What would you do, Wilk? What would you do?"
Vietnamese Student Wilkie: "I'm waiting to die."
