  • Quotes

    • Gen. Coogan: (on the phone) Lieutenant, I'm sure you have a sound reason for not sending those ambulances into combat.
      Lt. Garvey: Yes, sir!
      Gen. Coogan: Well, why don't you come here in the flesh and tell me what it is?
      Lt. Garvey: In the flesh, sir?
      Gen. Coogan: You wouldn't mind that, would you, Lieutenant?
      Lt. Garvey: They're on the way to you now, sir!

    • Col. Potter: Some yahoo of a First Lieutenant won't send us any ambulances!
      Gen. Coogan: Well, why the hell not?
      Col. Potter: He says there's a lot of shooting going on, and he doesn't want those ambulances to get hurt.
      Gen. Coogan: Damn jackass! If I could just have 30 seconds on the phone with that pimple-headed lieutenant, I'd boil his bars!
      Col. Potter: Well, General, I think we can arrange that, person to pimple!

    • (Falling asleep, after Lt. Garvey has refused to send him any ambulances)
      Col. Potter: I'm too old for this. I've got children telling me I can't play with their toys.
