The Devil's Brigade (1968)
Pvt. Billy 'Bronc' Guthrie: [referring to Henri] One of them's a frog, boys. Why don't you say something, froggy!
Pvt. Henri Laurent: Merde.
Pvt. Rockwell 'Rocky' Rockman: What the hell does that mean?
Cpl. Wilfrid Peacock: [to Rocky] To most people, it's an insult. But to you, I'd say it's a compliment.
Maj. Alan Crown: [after the Canadians finished singing a mocking version of 'Yankee Doodle'] Corporal Peacock, your stripes are not a licence to behave like an ass. There will be no more insulting or derogatory remarks about the Yanks, is that clear?
Cpl. Wilfrid Peacock: Yes, sir.
Cpl. Wilfrid Peacock: [addressing the Canadians] There will be no more insulting or derogatory remarks about the Yanks.
Pvt. Hugh MacDonald: Oh, would ordinary insults be acceptable, sir?
Sgt. Pat O'Neill: The human body has numerous vulnerable points.
[Rockman charges at O'Neill]
Sgt. Pat O'Neill: [while hitting Rockman] The elbow, the ribs, and the neck.
Sgt. Pat O'Neill: Including... the solar plexus.
[Kicks Rockman in the gut]
Sgt. Pat O'Neill: And many other points.
Sgt. Pat O'Neill: It's true you are a great powerful beast, but you'll note how his own size and weight can be used against him.
Sgt. Pat O'Neill: Name: Sergeant Patrick O'Neill, Position: Hand-to-Hand Combat Instructor.
Major Cliff Bricker: [Referring to Headquarters] Is there a chance, sir? Have you got friends up there?
Lt. Col. Robert T. Frederick: No. But at this point I don't care about making any more enemies.
Lt. Col. Robert T. Frederick: They say you find what something is worth when you pay for it.
[Upon meeting the rowdy, unkempt American troops for the first time]
Maj. Alan Crown: God save the King.
Capt. Rose: God save us all.
Lt. Col. Robert T. Frederick: [to Major Bricker] You've been in-and-out of nine different camps because you're the biggest chiseler, hustler, and scrounger in the whole Army. Well, in ten days our first recruits arrive, and whatever they need, and whatever this camp needs, you're going to supply. How you do it is your own business. So start hustling.
Maj. Gen. Maxwell Hunter: Faith moves mountains. It doesn't take them.
Lt. Col. Robert T. Frederick: Major, when you address me, take that cigar out of your mouth.
The Lumberjack: [Tugs at Pvt. MacDonald's Kilt] Here. Your petticoat is showing.
Pvt. Henri Laurent: [Henri stumbles as the men are fjording an ice-cold Italian stream] "Oh, merde, there goes my chance to be a daddy!"
Pvt. Hubert Hixon: [Amused] "Don't worry about it, Frog..."
Pvt. Rockwell 'Rocky' Rockman: [Looking up the side of a cliff in Italy] "Holy cow, it's straight up!"
Pvt. Hugh MacDonald: [Seriously] "What's the beef? It's only a mile high."
Maj. Alan Crown: ...The most memorable compliment came from their commandin' officer; and he referred to us as Der Teufel Brigade'... Members of The Devil's Brigade.
[Toasting Col. Frederick]
Maj. Alan Crown: Long life to the Devil!
[the Brigade cheers their Colonel]
Capt. Cardwell: [Sarcastically to Capt. Rose] Nobody likes a promiscuous rattlesnake, eh, Captain?
Lt. Gen. Mark Clark: Full colonels are not expendable.
Lt. Col. Robert T. Frederick: Sir, how low in rank does a man have to be before he is expendable?
