Quotes from

Lt.: Tell me, what sort of a trip did you have, eh? Pretty rough?
Capt. Remy Baudoin: Not bad. There was an episode with some crocodiles. I thought for a moment I was gone. But it appears they prefer dark meat.
Lt.: Boatman?
Lt.: Too bad.

Therese Du Flos Verlaine: [as Therese prepares to leave for French Indochina, she says goodbye to her father, the Colonel] Aren't you going to let me forget just for five minutes that I'm a soldier's daughter?
Col. Du Flos: From now on, you'll have to remember it more than ever. You're going out to marry André, but that is not enough. You'll live in a place where it is impossible to live; you'll make your home where no home can be. Have you sufficient strength for that?
Therese Du Flos Verlaine: I hope so, sir.
Col. Du Flos: I believe you have, but so has the jungle. Don't let it engulf you. Don't let it break André. Take to him your race for a wedding gift, the prestige of the White man. That means everything you stand for, and it is the only weapon you two will have--prestige--but it is enough to preserve you. Now--wasn't that a pretty speech?
Therese Du Flos Verlaine: Yes, sir, it was. And I'll try to remember it, if you'll kiss me.
