    The movie is filled with cliches: The movies is set in Ireland and all the Irish either drink whiskey or beer; the only way to gain respect is to fight for it; Wayne plays a boxer who retired after killing a man in the ring (so he won't fight and everyone thinks he's a wimp).

    Another quote from the movie:

    "Two women in that house and one of them a redhead."

    A slight referring both Wayne and his wife (Maureen O'Hara) as women.

    Alright, a different movie and another quote:

    Actually, it's perfect. I just never realized John Wayne walked like that.

    and...

    It's like riding a psychotic horse toward a burning stable.

    No, another quote:

    Char1: What are you giving him drugs for? What the hell are Pirin tablets?
    Char2: It's aspirin with the "A" and the "S" scraped off.
    Char1: My God, what a brilliant idea!
    Char2: I know.

    Char 1: Einstein flunked out of school, twice.
    Char 2: Is that so?
    Char 1: Yeah. Beethoven was deaf. Helen Keller was blind. I think Char 3's got a good chance.

    Sweet, here we go:

    Char1: I promised them women.
    Char2: What?
    Char1: Eight days ago, I found Jones with his gun in his mouth. He said he was going to kill himself because there was no future. What could I say to him? We fight off the infected or we wait until they starve to death... and then what? What do nine men do except wait to die themselves? I moved us from the blockade, and I set the radio broadcasting, and I promised them women. Because women mean a future.
