Quotes

  • Colonel Saito  

    Do not speak to me of rules. This is war! This is not a game of cricket!

  • Major Shears  

    You give me powders, pills, baths, injections, enemas; when all I need is love.

  • Major Shears  

    You make me sick with your heroics. There's a stench of death about you. You carry it in your pack like the plague. Explosives and L-pills -- they go well together, don't they? And with you it's just one thing or the other: destroy a bridge or destroy yourself. This is just a game, this war! You and Colonel Nicholson, you're two of a kind, crazy with courage. For what? How to die like a gentleman... how to die by the rules... when the only important thing is how to live like a human being.

  • Colonel Nicholson  

    One day the war will be over. And I hope that the people that use this bridge in years to come will remember how it was built and who built it. Not a gang of slaves, but soldiers, British soldiers, Clipton, even in captivity.

  • Colonel Saito  

    Be happy in your work.
