Sam Dodsworth: Yeah, well maybe I don't think so much of it, though. Maybe clean hospitals, concrete highways, and no soldiers along the Canadian border come near my idea of civilization.
Thursday Ragan: If you'd a minded me, and kept outen that swamp like I told you Ben, you wouldn't be in no fix like you're in... What's the matter boy?
Ben: If you'll be giving me my clothes, I'll be takin' myself offen your hands.
Thursday Ragan: No, you won't - you'll be quiet now. You're sick Ben.
Ben: I ain't so sick I have to lay here and listen to you give me down the country. I knowed that was all you drug me out of that crick for.

Dr. von Harden: [while Dr. Kurin is holding a gun on Richter and von Harden] I do not like much of what I've done for the past nine years.
Dr. Pavel Grigorich Kurin: [after von Harden has given a blood transfusion from a Russian child to a German soldier] You do not like bleeding children?

[Contemptuously gesturing toward Richter]
Dr. Pavel Grigorich Kurin: This kind is nothing! They will go when their bosses go, but men like you who have contempt for men like him!

It is men like you who have sold their people to men like him.
