Quotes

  • General Broulard  

    Colonel Dax, you're a disappointment to me. You've spoiled the keenness of your mind by wallowing in sentimentality. You really did want to save those men, and you were not angling for Mireau's command. You are an idealist -- and I pity you as I would the village idiot. We're fighting a war, Dax, a war that we've got to win. Those men didn't fight, so they were shot. You bring charges against General Mireau, so I insist that he answer them. Wherein have I done wrong?

  • Colonel Dax  

    Because you don't know the answer to that question, I pity you.

  • Corporal Paris  

    See that cockroach? Tomorrow morning, we'll be dead and it'll be alive. It'll have more contact with my wife and child than I will. I'll be nothing, and it'll be alive.

  • Private Ferol  

    Now you got the edge on him.

  • General Broulard  

    Colonel Dax! You will apologize at once or I shall have you placed under arrest!

  • Colonel Dax  

    I apologize... for not being entirely honest with you. I apologize for not revealing my true feelings. I apologize, sir, for not telling you sooner that you're a degenerate, sadistic old man. And you can go to hell before I apologize to you now or ever again!

  • General Broulard  

    Colonel Dax, are you trying to blackmail me?

  • Colonel Dax  

    It's an ugly word, but you are in a difficult situation.

  • General Mireau  

    If those sweethearts won't face German bullets, they'll take French ones!
