General McEntee: Carry out your orders, commandant. Hold your ground. Defend Jadotville.
Pat Quinlan: With what? A firm tone?
Pat Quinlan: We'll hold out until our last bullet is spent. We could do with that whiskey.
Madame LaFontagne: This place killed my husband. Radiation. The two bombs that America used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki came from the mines here in Jadotville.
Charles Cooley: What's it like getting shot?
Pat Quinlan: I wouldn't recommend it.
Rene Faulques: You do realise that you are outnumbered by a factor of twenty.
Pat Quinlan: I see a lot of dead men here. None of them are mine.
John Gorman: I felt scared.
Pat Quinlan: It's only natural.
John Gorman: No, that's not it. I was scared. But then I liked it. The killing.
Pat Quinlan: It's what you're trained to do.
John Gorman: You didn't like it.
Pat Quinlan: Each man reacts differently to killing another man. None of us have done this before. Talk to me in a few days.
