Charlie Sheen: When I smoke, I think of Platoon.

Oliver Stone: There was no point in my living life elsewhere, so this was the place to start. And if it was intended for me to die, I was quite willing to die, because I had thought of suicide, and written about it, entertained it, and fantasised about it. I wanna see what America really is. I wanna hang out with people with no education, who come from nowhere. I wanna see what they're thinking. I wanna feel what the bottom of the barrel, what reality is like. And I could think of no greater reality than war. I was eager to get to the war, to learn.

John C. McGinley: One night I'm sleepin, and I sleep with my mouth open, and he takes a water bug, which is a huge cockroach. He took two of 'em, and they where copulating, and he put it on my beard. And then that thing crawled into my mouth, and I spit it out, and in what was pretty dim light I could see two water bugs copulating on my lap. I went bananas. " This is a fuckin movie, and there is water bugs in my mouth." "Fuck you, and fuck Oliver." And it started to all come apart. And that's great. Oliver's dick was stiff when he heard stuff like this.
