Michael Caine Quotes:

Sgt. Pilot Chris: [the British Spitfire pilots are having an easy time shooting down the feared German Stuka Dive Bombers] It's like shooting rats in a barrel.
Squadron Leader Canfield: *You'll* be "in a barrel", if you don't watch out for the *fighters*!


Harry Palmer: Oh, by the way, is old Klaus Burger still alive?
Police officer: The forger?
Harry Palmer: Yeah, the forger.
Police officer: I'd like to run you out of Berlin, Palmer! You and MI5 and the Deuxième Bureau and the CIA and the rest of them. Then I can do my job instead of providing work for every forger, confidence man, thief, and murderer in this town!
Harry Palmer: Oh, I agree, I agree, I agree. But... is old man Klaus still alive?


[to his flight of non-English-speaking Polish pilots]
Squadron Leader Edwards: Shut up! Silence - in Polish!
