  • Quotes

    • Walsh: C'mon, Major, you've ruled, regulated, and reported us to death.
      Margaret: You're in the Army, and the Army means discipline!
      Gaynor: We know that. But once, just once, could you show a little compassion?
      Margaret: And once, just once, couldn't you be honest with me? Last night was just another joke, another lie to Major Houlihan!
      Baker: How can we be honest with you? You're like a cat waiting for the mice to make a mistake so you can pounce!
      Walsh: Let's face it, Major, you don't trust us.
      Margaret: And do you trust me? You act like I'm the enemy!
      Baker: All right. If I had asked your permission last night, what would you have done?
      Margaret: I would have said no.
      Baker: See?
      Margaret: Not because it's against regulations, but because of the rotten way you've treated me!
      Baker: The way we've treated you? What are you talking about?
      Margaret: Did you ever show me any kind of friendship? Ask my help with a personal problem? Include me in one of your little bull sessions? Can you imagine what it feels like to... (starts sobbing) to walk by this tent, and hear you laughing, and-and know I-I'm not welcome? Did you ever once ever offer me a lousy cup of coffee?
      Baker: We didn't think you'd accept.
      Margaret: (straightening up) Well, you were wrong! (marches out of the tent)
