Sergeant Milton Warden:
He'd strangle in his own spit if he didn't have me around to swab out his throat for him.
Towards the end of the movie, there is a long shot showing a very drunk Prew sitting down in a dirt road next to Warden. Prew then crosses his legs. In the medium shot following, we see that the wrong leg is crossed in front of the other.
