Lt. Bromhead: Sixty! We dropped at least sixty, wouldn't you say?

Adendorff: That leaves only three thousand nine hundred and forty.

Give the man a Kewpie Doll! (another movie reference)

Not the movie I had in mind for the Kewpie Doll reference. Think William Holden.

"Nobody beat me. We were playing pinochle. It's a rough game."

"I'll have my man clean your kit"

 

"Don't bother"

 

"Oh, no bother old boy. Wasn't offering to do it myself"

"The army doesn't like more than one disaster in a day."

 

"Looks bad in the newspapers and upsets civilians at their breakfast."

 

Two of the best lines in the movie.

 

Also. "You slovenly soldier, Hitch!"

There sure was a bunch of those guys with the pointy things.

 

Heard that were about three thousand nine hundred, and forty at last count.

My favorite character in this excellent, though not completely accurate, war movie was Colour Sergeant Bourne, and this is one of my favorite exchanges in the movie:

 

Colour Sergeant Bourne: It's a miracle.

Lieutenant Chard: If it's a miracle, Colour Sergeant, it's a short chamber Boxer Henry point 45 caliber miracle.

Colour Sergeant Bourne: And a bayonet, sir, with some guts behind.
