Quotes 

  • Fowler : Pushy Americans, always showing up late for every war. Overpaid, oversexed, and over here.

  • [Fowler is forced to share his bunk with Rocky] 

    Fowler : Absolutely outrageous! Asking a senior officer to share his quarters. And with a noncommissioned Yank, no less. Why, back in my day, I'd never...

    Rocky : Hey! You weren't exactly *my* first choice, either. And scoot over. Your wing's on my side of the bunk.

    Fowler : *Your* side of the bunk? The *whole bunk* is my side of the bunk!

    Rocky : [snapping back]  Just... What's that smell? Is that your breath?

    Fowler : It's absolutely outrageous.

  • Fowler : Increase velocity!

    Babs : What does that mean?

    Bunty : It means pedal your flippin' giblets out!

  • Ginger : But you're supposed to be up there - you're the pilot.

    Fowler : Don't be ridiculous. I can't fly this contraption.

    Ginger : Back in your day? The Royal Air Force?

    Fowler : 644 Squadron, Poultry Division - we were the mascots.

    Ginger : You mean you never actually *flew* the plane?

    Fowler : Good heavens, no! I'm a chicken! The Royal Air Force doesn't let chickens behind the controls of a complex aircraft.

  • Rocky : You see, flying takes three things: Hard work, perseverance and... hard work.

    Fowler : You said hard work twice!

    Rocky : That's because it takes twice as much work as perseverance.

  • Fowler : [of Rocky]  I don't like the look of this one. His eyes are too close together.

    Ginger : Fowler, please.

    Fowler : And he's a Yank.

  • [the plane reels as Mrs. Tweedy hangs on to it] 

    Fowler : Great Scott, what was that?

    Mac : A cling-on, Cap'n, and the engines can't take it.

  • Fowler : We need more power.

    Mac : I cannot work miracles, cap'n. We're giving her all she's got.

  • [repeated line] 

    Fowler : Why, back in my RAF days...

  • Fowler : Cock-a-doodle-doo! What, what.

  • [Fowler is hesitant about piloting the Crate] 

    Ginger : Fowler, you *have* to fly it. You're always talking about "back in your day"; well, *today* is your day.

    [extends to Fowler his medal] 

    Bunty : You can do it, you old sausage.

    Fowler : [stares at the medal for a moment, takes it, and salutes Ginger]  Wing Commander T.I. Fowler, reporting for duty.

  • Fowler : Good grief! The turnip's bought it!

  • [walking in on a jazz party] 

    Fowler : Now see here! I, I don't recall authorising a hop!

    Bunty : Oh, shut up and dance!

  • Rocky : What's happening? What's going on?

    Babs : They took Ginger, Mr. Rhodes! They're taking her to the chop!

    Fowler : Well, what are you waiting for, laddie? Fly over there. Save her!

    Rocky : Of course - No, No! That's just what they'd expect. But I say, we give them the old element of surprise.

    Fowler : [chuckling]  And catch Jerry with his trousers down. I like the sound of that; what's the plan?

    Rocky : The plan... um, the plan. The plan! Uh - Babs, give me that thing. Bunty, give me a boost.

  • Fowler : That's how you get medals.

    Bunty : Will you shut up about your *stupid blooming medals*!

    [she slaps the medal from Fowler's hand, sending it into the mud] 

    Fowler : How dare you!

    [conks Bunty on the head] 

    Bunty : Ohh!

    Fowler : Madam, forgive me. As an officer, I offer my most sincere...

    [Bunty punches him in the face] 

  • Fowler : Keep pedaling! We're not there yet! You can't see paradise if you don't pedal!
