  • (Martin Donovan) "With all due respect sir, did G-2 forget about the tanks the Jerries had been clobbering us with?"
  • (Dwight Yoakam) "No. The artillery is gonna take care of the tanks."
  • (Martin Donovan) "They've been saying that for a week."
  • (Dwight Yoakam) "Well they're saying it again, and this time they're right."

Captain Roy Pritchett."

  • (Pvt. David Manning) "Shit flows down."
  • (Frank Whaley) "Goddamn right. Regiment wipes its ass with Battalion, Battalion wipes its ass clean with Company, and we're left to lick the shit off of them. Mark my words, they're gonna keep sending us in until the whole fucking division is gone."
  • (Frank Whaley) "You don't think about it, you don't hesitate, you just do it, you understand? Otherwise, you're gonna go home to your mama in a box, alright?"
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "Anything notable?"
  • (Frank Whaley) "Those fucking tanks again. They've been jamming their barrels down our throat from that fucking high ground for a week now. Air Corps can't see'em, artillery can't hit'em. They better find some way in knocking those fuckers out, and I mean fast."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "What about the 88's?"

Martin Donovan as Capt. Roy Pritchett

  • (Pvt. David Manning) "Request permission for a section eight. I'm fucked up, I can't do this, I; I'm no good."
  • (Martin Donovan) "Listen to me soldier. A week ago I had a company of almost 200 men, now I've got 50. As hard as this may be for you to swallow, your efforts to stay alive hold very little value at this particular time and place. What does hold value are the objectives. The longer it takes to obtain them, the more dead we'll be stockpiling at the side of the road. Now, it's my job to obtain those objectives, and I will utilize anybody at my disposal to do so, that includes you Sergeant. Now I'm just as sorry as hell about your bruised nerves, but you are out of your skull if you think I'm gonna let you bail on a section eight. Is that clear?"
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "Yes sir."
  • (Martin Donovan) "At 1400 hours you will rendezvous with your new squad. You've got until then to get your shit together. Is that clear?"
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "Yes sir."
  • (Martin Donovan) "Good. Now get out of my sight."
  • (Martin Donovan) "You smile at me again, and I'll kick your teeth out."
  • (Martin Donovan) "We're making another push."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "You gotta be shitting me."
  • (Martin Donovan) "Our company is to try and take the bridge on the Kall Trail again and hold it. Kraut 88's on the ridge are gonna have us right on the chopping block."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "Fuckers."
  • (Martin Donovan) "There's a road leading up to the ridge from the north side. I figure a single squad with a couple of flamethrowers might have a shot at taking'em out. Their gun crews will be firing at us."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "What about their infantry support?"
  • (Martin Donovan) "Krauts are holding their manpower back about a mile behind the ridge. Apparently they're having trouble finding replacements, so they're relying on their 88's to wipe us out. I need a squad to volunteer."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "Good luck."
  • (Martin Donovan) "You take out those guns, and I'll get you that section eight you were begging for."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "It's a deal."
  • (Martin Donovan) "You smile at me again, and I'll kick your teeth out."
  • (Sgt. Talbot) "This is Sergeant Talbot. Lieutenant Lukas has lost it."
  • (Martin Donovan) "I put you in charge of this, Sergeant. Now listen up, you gotta pull your platoon back to this side of the river."
  • (Sgt. Talbot) "You expect me to get these guys to leave cover in this shit?"
  • (Martin Donovan) "If you don't get that platoon to move, you're all gonna be dead 10 minutes, now haul ass."
  • (Martin Donovan) "Lukas, take a walk."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "Fucking greenie."
  • (Martin Donovan) "You better get used to him, he's your new platoon leader."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "He'll be dead in a week."
  • (Martin Donovan) "Congratulations Private, you're a sergeant now."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "I am absolutely the wrong man."
  • (Martin Donovan) "You've managed to stay alive for a week: that's something the rest of your platoon couldn't do. Call me crazy, but from where I'm standing, that qualifies you for the job."

Jeffrey Donovan as Bobby

  • (Jeffrey Donovan) "Me, sir."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "That's right, you're tough. Tough as what?"
  • (Jeffrey Donovan) "Nails."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "That's right, now you say it."
  • (Jeffrey Donovan) "Tough as nails."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "You're goddamn right, you're tough as nails."
  • (Jeffrey Donovan) "It hurts -- Don't pick me up anymore."
  • (Pvt. David Manning) "Listen Bob, if I leave you, ain't nobody gonna find you. You're gonna die out here."
