Maj. Wilhelm Wilner: (into a phone) Major Wilner speaking. Ja, Colonel.
SS-Standartenführer Kramer: (into a phone) Can you describe him?
Maj. Wilhelm Wilner: (into the phone) That will not be necessary. Ask him to show you his right forearm.
Major John Smith: Certainly.
Maj. Wilhelm Wilner: (as Smith raises his sleve) There are two parallel scars, about three centimeters apart.
SS-Standartenführer Kramer: (into the phone) The scars are there.
Maj. Wilhelm Wilner: (into the phone) Ask how he get them.
SS-Standartenführer Kramer: (to Smith) How did you get those?
Major John Smith: I was born with them.
SS-Standartenführer Kramer: (into the phone) He says he was born with them.
Maj. Wilhelm Wilner: (into the phone) That is right. Tell him he's a traitor.
Major John Smith: Tell him he's a renegade.
Maj. Wilhelm Wilner: That is Schmidt. No question about it.
SS-Sturmbannführer Von Hapen: Strange... I seem to remember... that the cathedral was on the other side of the square.
(Smith and Schaffer are observing the Castle of Eagles fortress, and a nearby military base)
Lt. Morris Schaffer: If I'm not mistaken, that's an army barracks over there.
Major John Smith: No mistake, Lieutenant. This the headquarters of the Wehrmacht Alpenkorps.
Lt. Morris Schaffer: Oh, swell. Do you have any other surprises I should know about?
Major John Smith: I thought you knew, Lieutenant. Why do you think we were chosen for his mission as if not to make social contact?
Lt. Morris Schaffer: You mean we're gonna go down there? Mingle with the German Army?
Major John Smith: Of course. Why do you think we're not dressed as German sailors?
Lt. Morris Schaffer: We'll be recognized as strangers.
Major John Smith: Training troops come and go all the time. What are six new faces among 600 new faces?
Lt. Morris Schaffer: Look, Major, this is primarily a British operation. I'm an American. I don't even know why the hell I'm here.
Major John Smith: Lieutenant, you're here because you're an American.
Lt. Morris Schaffer: You seem to have a lot of women stashed around this country, Major.
Major John Smith: You are going up to the castle tonight as, well, yes as a domestic.
Mary Ellison: How? Naked?
Major John Smith: Not a bad idea, but it's a bit obvious.
Colonel Wyatt Turner: Some people have a sixth sense. He has a sixth, a seventh and an eighth.
Lt. Morris Schaffer: Look, Major, either you start playing it straight or you can deal me out of this mess. Now we both know that radio operator wasn't killed in any drop. Now with MacPherson dead, there's only five of us left. So either you let me know what's going on or there's only gonna be four.
Heidi: (to Mary Ellison disguised as "Maria Schenk") My dear cousin Maria, you came after all.
Gen. Rosemeyer: This is preposterous!
(when Smith makes the discussion more confusing than it already was)
Colonel Wyatt Turner: Public trial would be embarrassing, painful, not only for myself, also for British intelligence and Admiral Rolland.
Major John Smith: Perhaps, but not as painful as that long drop to the end of the rope.
Major John Smith: Nobody leaves here until I come back. Jock, save me some coffee.
Sgt. Jock MacPherson: It'll be cold by then.
Major John Smith: I'd say that's an advantage. You can't taste cold coffee.
Mary Ellison: I nearly froze to death in that damn plane. Why couldn't you have supplied some hot water bottles or an electrically heated suit? I thought you loved me.
Major John Smith: Can't help what you think.
SS-Standartenführer Kramer: Let me remind you, Major, I'm a colonel in the SS and not a lieutenant who you can frighten with your threats!
SS-Sturmbannführer Von Hapen: Your military rank and position are obvious to me, Colonel, and so are your attempts to discredit me with superiors in Berlin.
SS-Standartenführer Kramer: If there is any discredit, you bring it upon yourself. Good night.
Major John Smith: (In the Werfen gasthaus cafe) And who might you be, my pretty Alpine rose?
Heidi: Heidi. Stop, Major. I've got important work to do.
Major John Smith: There's no more important work than entertaining the soldiers of the Fatherland. Shall I sing you a song?
Heidi: I hear too much singing.
(a large body of German troops led by field security chief Colonel Weissner storm into the guesthouse pub in a raid)
Col. Weissner: (addressing the crowd) Attention! We are looking for four or five Alpinekorps deserters from Studguardt. To escape they killed two officers and a guardroom sergeant. They were last known to be heading this way.
Major John Smith: (quitely to his men) Clever. Very clever indeed.
Col. Weissner: (continuting to the crowd) I want all the officers of Drafts 13, 14, and 15 to come forward at once!
(to his men)
Col. Weissner: Check their papers. Check them carefully.
Major John Smith: (to his men) Well gentlemen... any suggestions?
(Thomas, Christiansen, and Berkley are silent)
Major John Smith: (to Schaffer) Lieutenant?
Lt. Morris Schaffer: Well, I think we'll stand a lot better chance of getting away outside then we will in here.
Major John Smith: Agreed. Gentlemen... see you after the war.
