Sean Connery: Pvt. Flanagan



  • [Millen plays the bagpipes as British troops march toward the Germans] 

    Pvt. Clough : There it is, he's at it again! Have you ever heard such a racket in all your life?

    Private Flanagan : Yeah, it takes an Irishman to play the pipes.

  • Capt. Colin Maud : [walking up to a stalled vehicle]  My old grandmother used to say anything mechanical, give it a good bash.

    [Hits hood with his swagger stick] 

    Capt. Colin Maud : Try it now.

    [vehicle cranks] 

    Private Flanagan : [to Clough]  Sure, now; that did it.

    [notices Maud looks at him] 

    Private Flanagan : Ah, now that's what I call a hell of a man!

    Pvt. Clough : Aye, I like his dog too.

    Capt. Colin Maud : Move inland. The war's that way.

  • [upon landing on beach]
