Michael Corleone on the subject of insurgents
MICHAEL

I saw an interesting thing happen today. A rebel was being arrested by the military police, and rather than be taken alive, he exploded a grenade he had hidden in his jacket. He killed himself, and took a captain of the command with him.

JOHNNY OLA

Maybe so -- but it occurred to me. The soldiers are paid to fight -- the rebels aren't.

ROTH

What does that tell you?


MICHAEL

They can win.
