    Breaking the bank behind German lines.

    "Move out!"

    Nevermind, I'll save you the trouble. It's every John Wayne war movie.

    "OK knuckleheads. Don't let any Germans in here."

    Said to two MPs on gate duty at an airbase in England.

    "What bothers me, what genuinely and truly bothers me, is that Holland being half underwater is somewhat soggier than most deserts you're apt to find."

    Yes. I like it more every time I watch it. I remember I didn't care for it when it first came out. Now I think its great, except for Robert Redford and that character that James Caan saved.

    The Hill? I've recently found some clips from this on Youtube, not this quote, though, but it seems appropriate. Long time since I saw the film, but I remember a great performance from Harry Andrews as the RSM. Mind you, when did you not get a great performance from Harry Andrews?

    At first I thought this was from one of my all time favourite films, Twelve O’Clock High, as I couldn’t quite remember the exact word for word exchange between Gregory Peck’s General Savage and the dozy guards who idly wave his car through at the gate without checking.

    “Ooo, ooo, Mr Peevly!” I exclaimed, thinking I’d got it lol.

    It’s not, however, and I confess I have just cheated and looked it up to find it’s a film I don’t think I have ever seen. I won’t name it in case anyone still wants to have a go at guessing ;).

    I'll give a hint.

    It was said by a wiseguy slacker sergeant who the MPs didn't like. He was bringing some newsmen through the gate.

    This monologue is some of the best delivery I've ever seen on film:
