Quotes from

Padre Rafael: As soon as the American troops are gone, the Moros will come down from the hills. They will kill all the men and carry away all the women and children into slavery. For you it will be a report written in ink, but for my people, it will be a report written in blood.


Dr. Bill Canavan: [referring to a sick McCool] The germ hasn't been found that can stop him.


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?
