Quotes from

Dr. Bill Canavan: [Referring to the many soldiers in sick bay] The Moro that struck Captain Manning down struck them down too, but not with a bolo. They're down with a disease medicine can't cure.
Capt. Steve Hartley: They'll be all right when they learn how to use a gun, when they're properly drilled!
Dr. Bill Canavan: The trouble is that you're trying to drill things into them when you should be drilling things out of them. What good's a gun when your finger's so paralyzed with fright that you can't pull a trigger?


Dr. Bill Canavan: [to Captain Hartley, who is going blind] Fact is you're afraid to live. That's much worse than being afraid to die!


Dr. Bill Canavan: I thought I missed when I shot at that juramentado, but I guess I didn't.
[He throws five bullets he romoved from the body on the table]
Dr. Bill Canavan: He had enough lead in him to sink a battleship!
Capt. George Manning: Doctor, a juramentado is like a horse. The only place to stop him is right here.
[He gestures to his head]
Capt. George Manning: Only you feel sorry for the horse.
Dr. Bill Canavan: I've heard of these fanatics that go beserk, but I never saw one before. I wonder what kept the bugger going with all those slugs in him. Must be some drug.
Padre Rafael: The drug that keeps them going is what keeps most of us going - faith - good or bad! The juramentado believes that when he kills an infidel, it is a passport to Heaven.
