The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“Survival kit contents check. In them you’ll find: one forty-five caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days’ concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Russian phrase book and Bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair of nylon stockings. Shoot, a fella’ could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.” – Slim Pickens as Major T. J. “King” Kong in Dr. Strangelove [1].

The last sentence of the quote was originally filmed as: “Shoot, a fella’ could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff”, but the film ended up being released just after the Kennedy assassination, so the city was changed to Vegas by over-dubbing before release.

Kubrick did not tell slim Pickens this was a black comedy. He played his role straight. Witch made it all that much funnier.
