I need the quote that John says at the very beginning about him being a coin of the United States Army. I need the whole thing but I don't know how to find it and can't remember it. I know it says something about picking out the flawed ones and fixing the ridges or something....

the quote you wanted..

here it is, im pretty sure its right.
:
You want to know the first thing that came to my head?
Right before I blacked out?
Coins.
I went to a factory when i was nine,
I saw how coins were made.
I was a coin in the United States Army.
I was polished, stamped, created for perfection.
People inspect those, to make sure they dont have any of the slightest imperfections.
I now had an imperfection,
I was no longer usable.

Im remember by thought but it may be wrong, sorry if it is
hope i helped. :)

I've been punched from sheet metal

I've been stamped and cleaned

my edges have been rimmed and beveled

Bugger Dear John

The idiot who wrote this piece of romantic drivel has never been shot. I have and after you've been shot you just don't give a sh*t about anything anymore. It's not worth it. Nothing's worth worth it.

Dear Dad, There is something I've been meaning to tell you. Remember a few years back when I got shot? Do you wanna know one of the first things that entered my mind at that moment?Right before I blacked out. Coin. Suddenly I was 8 years old again. I was on that tour of the U.S. Mint. I was listening to the guide about how coins were made. How they're punched out sheet metal and how they're rimmed and beveled. How they are stamped and cleaned. And how each and every batch of coins are personally examine in case any have slipped through with the slightest imperfections. Do you remember that? I mean, do you remember that trip to Philadelphia we took? That's what popped into my head. I'm a coin in the United States army. I was minted in the year 1980. I've been punched from sheet metal. I've been stamped and cleaned. And my edges have been rimmed and beveled. But now I have two small holes in me. So I'm no longer in perfect condition. How about it, Dad? You know, we're just a couple of culls here, huh? But there's one - There's one more thing that I want to tell you too. After I got shot, do you wanna know the very last thing I thought of? I'm sorry. The very last thing I thought of. Do you wanna know the very last thing I thought of?

Coins.


-I watched the movie and paused for each line. Enjoy :) haha

Posted by G3668 - Friday, June 11th, 2010

That is not the correct quote! :)

Posted by G3772 - Sunday, June 20th, 2010

This is what he says in the beginning of the movie. (The entire thing.)

After I got shot, you wanna know the very first thing that entered my mind, right before I blacked out? Coins. I'm eight years old again, on a tour of the US Mint, listening to the guide explain how coins are made. How they are punched out of sheet metal. How they are rimmed and beveled. How they are stamped and cleaned. And how each and every coin is personally examined, just in case one has slipped through with the slightest imperfection. That's what popped into my head.

I am a coin in the United States Army. I was minted in the year 1980. I have been punched from sheet metal, I have been stamped and cleaned, my edges have been rimmed and beveled. But now I have two small holes in me, I am no longer in perfect condition.

So there's something else I want to tell you before I go.

After I got shot, right before everything went black, you wanna know the very final thing that entered my mind?

You.

This is what he says to his father in the hospital. (The entire thing.)

Okay.

Dear Dad,

There's something I've been wanting to tell you. Remember a few years ago, back when I got shot? Well you wanna know the very first thing that entered my mind at that moment, right before I blacked out? Coins. Suddenly I was eight years old again, on a tour of the US Mint, listening to the guide explain how coins are made. How they are punched out of sheet metal. How they are rimmed and beveled. How they are stamped and cleaned. And how each and every coin is personally examined, just in case one has slipped through with the slightest imperfection. Remember that, Dad? You remember the trip to Philadelphia we took? Well that's what popped into my head.

I am a coin in the United States Army. I was minted in the year 1980. I have been punched from sheet metal, I have been stamped and cleaned, my edges have been rimmed and beveled. But now I have two small holes in me, so I am no longer in perfect condition.

How about it, Dad? We're just a couple of culls, huh? But there's one more thing I want to tell you, too. After I got shot... right before I blacked out... you wanna know the very last thing that... I'm sorry, just... the very last thing that... that entered my mind?

There's something I wanna tell you. After I got shot, you wanna know the very first thing that entered my mind? Before I blacked out? Coins. I'm eight years old again on a tour of the U.S. Mint. I'm listening to a guy explain how coins are made. How they're punched out of sheet metal. How they're rimmed and beveled. How they're stamped and cleaned. And how each and every batch of coin are personally examined just in case any of them slipped though with the slightest imperfection. That's what popped into my head.

this is what he says word for word in the movie:

After I got shot, do you want to know the very first thing that entered my mind?

Before I blacked out?

Coins.

On a tour of the US mint.

How they punch that sheet medal,

And how each and every batch of coins are examined,

Just in case any has slipped through with the slightest imperfection.

I am a coin in the united states army.

I was minted in the year 1980.

My ridges have been rimmed and pebbled.

Now I have two small holes in me.

I am no longer in perfect condition.

Right before everything went black.

Do you want to know the very last thing that entered my mind?

You.
