: Hi, Kathy...actually, I think Hawkeye's line is given in response to Duncan's "How is it you are headed west?" and Hawkeye responds something like "We just face north & real sudden-like, turn left." In other words, that's how you head west. Yes, the soldiers on the road look dead, but apparently they only lost 17 or 18...I forget. Duncan comments on the number that were killed when reporting to Munro. Maybe we just didn't get to see the wounded straggling about, wondering what to do.
am i gonna hafta put my ears to work again and see if he's really saying "sudden" or "subtle" ? i've always thought it was "subtle" but i just might have to put my headphones on and slow-mo those lips of his.
and i too cant understand the "face to the north and....." line. last time i checked, Kentucky was a little south of New York.
i would have thought that if he wanted to sound as sarcastic as he could, he would have said the opposite directions and said,"head to the north and turn right". i dont know, that line just never made sense to me. i guess it never will.
man, how much can people disect one movie??!! :-)
