‘I sink you vill see Berlin before I vill.’
–Do you expect officers to forget their duty?
–How many men to you plan to take out, Roger?
–I only drank tea once…in a hospital.
–They’re celebrating the revolution.
–It’s the Fourth of July!
–What do we do?
–Wait for the train.
-Danny, you speak Russian?
-A little. But only one sentence.
-Well, let me have it, mate.
-Ia vas liubliu.
-Ia vas liubliu. Ia vas liubliu. What’s it mean?
-I love you.
-I love you? What bloody good is that?
-I don’t know. I wasn’t going to use it myself.
-Hold on to yourself, Bartlett. You’re twenty feet short.
-What do you mean, twenty feet short?
-You’re twenty feet short of the woods. The hole is right here out in the open. The guard is between us and the lights.
-What about the goon towers?
-Well, that’s a chance you’re gonna have to take. But they’re going to be watching the compound. Not the woods.
-What were you doing by the wire?
-Well, like I told Max here, I was trying to get my God…
-What were you doing by the wire?
-Well, like I was telling Max, I was…I was trying to cut my way
through your wire because I want to get out.
1.) Blythe, what are you doing here?
2.) I’m in photo aerial reconaissance. My own falut really. Went for a joyride to see for myself.
1.) No, I mean, what do you DO here?
2.) Oh, I’m the forger.
1.) How many men are you planning on taking out?
1.) 250!!??!? You’re crazy, you too. 250 men just walking down the street?
1.) Why 17?
2.) This is the 17th tunnel Danny’s started.
Has it occured to you tat you’re gonna alert every goon in the country? Anybdy who can carry a pitchfork will be out looking for ya. Why, they’re gonna swoop down and scoop you up so fast it’s gonna make your head swim!
Ah Herr Bartlett! And Herr Macdonald.
And we intend to watch this basket carefully.
colin blythe: splendid
Cooler. Twenty days.
Do you know what this is?
I know what it isn’t. It isn’t Napolean brandy.
Don’t smoke right after you drink it.
german officer to Ives: name? Ives..Archibold Ives. Ahhh the photo does not do you justice. I’d like to see one of you under similar circumstances!
German officer: Are all American officers so ill-mannered? / American officer: 99%.
GUARD: Vot are you doing?
BRONSON: Shower. I need a vosh.
GUARD: Vot about you?
COBURN: Watchin’ ‘im. I’m a lifeguard.
HE IS NOT TO BE SALUTED… HE IS NO LONGER IN CHARGE
Hilts–Oh, you still be here when I get out? Kommidant–Cooler
HILTS: Hey Ives, what do they call a mole in Scotland?
IVES: A mole.
I can’t see a bloody thing.
I have a perfect record. There has never been an escape form Stalage 13 Hogan.
I haven’t seen Berlin yet, from the ground or from the air. And I plan on doing both before the war is over.
I thought they’d never let you out.
In 1812, they burned your capital.
It is the sworn duty of all officers to try to escape.
It looks like you will see Berlin before I do.
It’s good stuff, Hilts.
Just having a friendly little argument, mate.
Meanwhile, we dig.
Oh my God! They found Tom!
One has to ask some very strange favors in the job I have.
Open up Harry. We dig. Around the clock.
Thank you for getting me out.
Thank you, sir.
The goons didn’t appreciate some of my more personal items.
The next step is a little tricky.
There will be no escapes from this camp.
There will be three. We’ll call them Tom, Dick, and Harry.
This is a new camp.
Wait a minute! You aren’t seriously suggesting that if I get through
the wire and case everything out there, and don’t get picked up, to
turn myself in and get thrown back in the cooler for a couple of months just so you can get the information you need?
we’ll call them tom dick and harry
we’ll name them Tom dick and Harry
We’re going to tunnel.
You appointed me Big X.
You crossed the wire. What wire? The wire of death.
Your German is good. I hear also your French. Hands…. UP.
Yours is Virgil, right?
Hilts, just make it Hilts.
