Capt. Keith Mallory: I have no time for this!
Corporal Miller: Now just a minute! If we're going to get this job done she has got to be killed! And we all know how keen you are about getting the job done! Now I can't speak for the others but I've never killed a woman, traitor or not, and I'm finicky! So why don't you do it? Let us off for once! Go on, be a pal, be a father to your men! Climb down off that cross of yours, close your eyes, think of England, and pull the trigger! What do you say, Sir?More Movie: The Guns of Navarone  Movie: The Guns of Navarone  quotes [01/16/2008 12:01:00]

Squadron Leader Howard Barnsby RAAF: First, you've got that ruddy old fortress on top of that ruddy cliff. Then you've got that ruddy fortress *inside* the cliff. You can't even see the ruddy cave, let alone the ruddy guns. And even if we could, we haven't got a ruddy bomb big enough to smash that ruddy rock. And that's the ruddy truth, sir.More Movie: The Guns of Navarone  Movie: The Guns of Navarone  quotes [01/16/2008 12:01:00]

Mallory: We are going to leave Major Franklin behind. He is a wounded officer, I expect him to get proper medical attention.
Muesel: We don't make war on wounded men. We aren't all like Hauptmann Sessler.
Mallory: Now where's the camp radio station?
Muesel: I will not tell you.
[Mallory points a pistol at Muesel in a hesitant way]
Muesel: You wouldn't hesitate to kill me for any number of reasons, but not this one. In any event I will not tell you.

Corporal Miller: Exhibit A: a clockwork fuse. Elementary and archaic, but they work. Only this one doesn't work, you know why? The clock's okay, but the contact arm's been broken off. This clock could tick away until Christmas, and it wouldn't set off a firecracker!
[throws it in a corner]
Corporal Miller: Exhibit B: Exhibit B is missing! All my slow-burning fuses are gone, disappeared, vanished! Exhibit C: my time pencils.
[holds one up]
Corporal Miller: Seventy-five grains of fulminate of mercury in every one of them, enough to blow off my hand. And very unstable, very delicate.
