Independence Day Bill Pullman Speech Transcript: Great Movie Transcripts
Today at Rev on the 4th of July we’d like to honor one of the greatest fake presidents of all time, who gave one of the greatest fake presidential speeches of all time, on the greatest fake Independence Day of all time. Happy 4th of July Bill Pullman, aka President Thomas J. Whitmore!
PRESIDENT WHITMORE: Good morning. Good morning.
PRESIDENT WHITMORE: In less than an hour aircrafts from here will join others from around the world and you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind.
PRESIDENT WHITMORE: Mankind, that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests.
PRESIDENT WHITMORE: Perhaps it’s fate that today is the 4th of July and you will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution. But from annihilation. We’re fighting for our right to live, to exist.
PRESIDENT WHITMORE: And should we win today the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice, “We will not go quietly into the night. We will not vanish without a fight. We’re going to live on. We’re going to survive. Today we celebrate our INDEPENDENCE DAY.”
