Game: Guess the war movie quote

Post by Potsdamerplatz » 22 Dec 2005 21:53

Here's a new thread which members should enjoy. Quote a line of dialogue from a movie connected with war or the Nazi period. The line must be reasonably memorable so that others have a good chance of guessing it. Whoever gets the correct answer can take the next turn and so on.

Movie screenplays are not routinely available on the Internet so Google won't be of any use. Here goes:

"But it's not him, I tell you. It's those hoodlums again. Those thieves and crooks and murderers. Those toy soldiers. Those dummy generals, with their books and charts and maps and pointers. How can he listen to such nonentities? How can he stand the smell of such filth? Why doesn't he slaughter them and use his intelligence?"


Good luck!!!

And now my quote:

"Ours or theirs?"

"Enemy planes, sir."

"But who is the enemy?"

Here is another one for you:

I think we are both big film fans. This is rapidly turning into a 2 man competition.

Your turn again Beppo.

I believe it's Nick Nolte in "THE THIN RED LINE" (1998) which is another classic war movie!!!

Am I right?
