Cmdr. Shears quotes

Here lies Corporal Herbert Thompson, serial number 01234567, valiant member of the King's own, and Queen's own, or something, who died of beriberi in the year of our Lord 1943. For the greater glory of...[pause] what did he die for?...I don't mock the grave or the man. May he rest in peace. He found little enough of it while he was alive.

Mostly Aussies, some Lime, some British, Indians, Burmese, Siamese...They died, of malaria, dysentery, beriberi, gangrene. Other causes of death: famine, overwork, bullet wounds, snake bites, Saito. And then there were some who just got tired of living.

Don't bother about me, Colonel. I'm not anxious to get off the sick list.

I can think of a lot of things to call Saito, but reasonable, that's a new one.

You give me powders, pills, baths, injections, enemas - when all I need is love.

He had the guts of a maniac. They were about to shoot him and he didn't bat an eye.

No you don't understand! He's got the kind of guts that could get us all killed.
