Original Woods actor mocks Black Ops Cold War’s ‘onion’ line

Liam Mackay

James C. Burns, the actor who had played Woods for a decade before replaced, has been making fun of a strange line from Cold War’s campaign.

In the mission ‘Echoes of a Cold War,’ Mason and Woods are stealthily traversing a snowy mountainside. When they approach some enemies, the conversation goes like this:

  • Woods: “We do this quiet, Mason.”
  • Mason: “Yeah, you’re the expert in quiet.”
  • Woods: “I’m a goddamn onion, Mason. You should know that.”

We believe Woods is trying to say he has layers, but we’re not sure. This line has led to many memes and jokes.
