Lee J. Cobb Quotes:

Col. Feroud: I have here your dossier. It contains the history of your life. You're a man entirely without moral scruples of any kind. You supply the Syrians with guns and ammunition, but I respect them, they fight for a cause. Your cause is only money. While Frenchmen and Syrians kill each other, you profit by it. According to military law you have to be shot. The punishment seems hardly adequate.
Harry Smith: What have you got me up here for? To watch me sweat, to watch me crawl? I'll bet they didn't bring Nasir up here before they shot him.
Col. Feroud: What a pity you could only die once.
Harry Smith: Sure, I know I'm going to be shot, but not for running guns, but because I'm something special. I made a monkey out of you. I'm the guy that ran off with your girl.
Col. Feroud: Don't you realize if I *wanted* you shot, you'd be in a ditch right now?

Cramden: I can imagine what it's based on.


Dr. Andrew Collins: Perhaps the memory that causes your dream has something to do with your family, your mother maybe.
Al Walker: We've been all through that, haven't we? We finished with her!
Dr. Andrew Collins: No, you're not! You'll never be!
Al Walker: But she's dead. She meant nothing to me when she was alive!
Dr. Andrew Collins: She's the only woman you ever really loved. Allthe other women in your life are substitutes for her!
