Interview with Orval Faubus
QUESTION 94
INTERVIEWER:

OK. OK. I KINDA LIKE YOU, EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T LIKE YOU.

Orval Faubus:

Well, You kinda make me think of uh, of the movie "Patton", where he was seated at the table, you know, with the Russian officer and the Russian officer wanted to drink a toast. And uh, Patton said "no, I don't care about drinking a toast with a son of a bitch." And the interpreter told the officer what he said. And he first looked really displeased and then he kind of laughed and he said to the interpreter and the interpreter went back and talked to Patton, and Patton said, "OK, I agree. A toast. One son of a bitch to another…" [laughter]
